Tucker Carlson took on liberal pundits who seem to be encouraging the “genocide” of white men as he cited the unhinged rant of a Georgetown University professor.
“Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination and the controversy around it is many things, but one thing it’s not is a race story,” the Fox News host said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Monday.
“There’s no racial angle whatsoever and no reasonable person could disagree with that. But that has not prevented the left from using it to vilify people for their skin color,” Carlson said.
He took aim at a column by ABC News’ Matthew Dowd which blatantly called for “white male Christians” to step down from powerful positions.
“Former Bush campaign strategist and ABC News political analyst, Matthew Dowd published an Op-Ed demanding that white male Christians vacate their positions of power for other people,” Carlson said. “He’s not doing that himself but he did not, notably, advocate for genocide.”
But that, Carlson noted, is exactly what Georgetown professor Christine Fair did, ranting on Twitter that supporters of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should be murdered and castrated.
Twitter has suspended, and perhaps permanently banned, the account of Georgetown Professor C. Christine Fair, apparently due to this tweet: pic.twitter.com/wN2OvrgRcA

Twitter apparently took action against Fair’s account.
Georgetown University issued a statement about Fair, who serves as a distinguished associate professor in the Security Studies Program:
The views of faculty members expressed in their private capacities are their own and not the views of the University. Our policy does not prohibit speech based on the person presenting ideas or the content of those ideas, even when those ideas may be difficult, controversial or objectionable. While faculty members may exercise freedom of speech, we expect that their classrooms and interaction with students be free of bias and geared toward thoughtful, respectful dialogue.”
And while Fair’s tweet got its share of reaction online, Carlson’s warning about possible white genocide got the attention of plenty of viewers.
Yeah, well, Tucker Carlson used that tweet to help convince his viewers that they had to fear a future of white genocide in this country, so let’s just say good riddance. She can stand on street corners peddling her hateful garbage. https://t.co/g1PEWe9ckL

>’liberals are coming to murder all the whites’
Of course, he didn’t even say that.
And it’s not just some jackass on Twitter. Georgetown University DEFENDED her. That is literally institutional racism.

Uhhh, he just read a tweet, nothing more. He didn’t even give an opinion on it. You should be more concerned that a university professor who influences the views of hundreds of kids calls for genocide.

Tucker isn’t the one who raised race issue. He reported on how others in public have. Newsweek is misreporting this whole thing

Um. He is correct. Did you see the MSM coverage? And the Georgetown professor who literally called for it? Have you not seen how the unhinged low intel crows have blamed all ills on “White Males”. Why all of the lies? #Propaganda Media clearly doesn’t matter.
