Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Americans should stop being resigned to accepting Islamic terrorism as a way of life like Europe has, saying if we don’t defend our beliefs, we will lose ourselves.
Carlson joins a growing chorus of Americans who are disgusted that weak-willed European leaders in Germany, France, England and Sweden have laid back in resignation and accepted that deadly suicide bombings and terrorist attacks are now a normal part of everyday life.
“Why is violent terrorism an inevitability in Europe now?” Carlson asked. “Europe is getting used to attacks like this because they have to.”
Tucker said it’s not surprising that there has been an escalation in Islamic terrorist attacks across Europe because many Western Muslims who live in Europe embrace Sharia law and sympathize with ISIS.
“We shouldn’t be surprised that radical views are common among Western Muslims because they’re even more common in their home nations,” Carlson said. He pointed to research that shows that 29% of French Muslims say they believe sharia law is above French law, and 20% of British Muslims sympathize with ISIS.
If the United States doesn’t want to become a Muslim caliphate like Europe, Carlson said we should make sure that immigrants embrace American values:
If you really cared about America, you wouldn’t want it to become Europe: dangerous, divided unstable. You wouldn’t import a massive Muslim minority into your country simply because it made you feel open-minded and virtuous and then hope for the best. That’s a faith-based approach and it’s nuts. We know exactly what will happen if we do that because we’re watching it live on television in Manchester right now.
If you really cared about the country you led, you’d figure out how to make sure that every person you imported—of any religion—enthusiastically shared your most cherished values: tolerance, pluralism, free speech and equality under the law, just for starters. You’d tell them not to litter, by the way, when they’re here too.
Tucker Carlson said leftist Western politicians do the opposite, which is to badger citizens to be ashamed of their own cultures.
“We do the opposite,” he said. “Our leaders worship multiculturalism so we encourage immigrants to REJECT our culture in favor of their own because ‘all cultures are equal.’ But they’re not all equal, as we were reminded last night with the murder of children in an arena in Manchester.”
Tucker concluded with a somber warning for all Americans who love their country: “Defend what you believe or you will lose it. That’s the message of Manchester. Just as it is the basic lesson of all of history.”
