Fox News host Tucker Carlson ruthlessly bashed Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar late Thursday over her decision to respond to national security adviser Michael Flynn’s veritable acquittal by accusing him of benefiting from a mythical force called white privilege.
Carlson’s stern remarks came after he first used his show’s opening monologue to explain how the Obama-era officials within the Department of Justice had investigated and prosecuted Flynn had done so maliciously.
“This was a setup from the beginning,” he boldly declared as he laid out all the evidence.
About three minutes into the monologue, he then pivoted his attention to Omar, who’d responded to the DOJ’s decision in Flynn’s case by tweeting the following early Thursday evening: “White privilege at work.”

Millions of people—mostly black and Latino men—spend years in jail trying to prove their innocence. Some die in jail.
Michael Flynn was exonerated for crimes *he admitted to* with the blink of an eye.

“Omar didn’t explain what in the world Mike Flynn’s case might have to do with his skin color, which he cannot control, but she denounced the decision as racist anyway,” Carlson said in response later that evening on FNC’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“Surprised? You shouldn’t be surprised. Ilhan Omar is a person who clearly married her own brother in an immigration scam, who passionately hates the country that saved her, who reduces every conceivable issue to the most vicious kind of race-baiting.”
Listen to his whole monologue below:
“Can a single human being actually be as loathsome as Ilhan Omar is?” Carlson continued. “It’s hard to believe. She’s like a parody of repulsiveness. Sometimes, you doubt she really exists. The RNC must have created her. We can’t confirm that, of course.”

Going back to Omar’s rant, a lot of facts were ignored in it.
First, Flynn was coerced into pleading guilty. That too happens to black and Latino men.
“Michael Flynn did not commit a crime, and they knew it,” Carlson noted earlier in his monologue. “How did they know? Because the FBI had already tapped Michael Flynn’s phone, which itself is a shocking outrage completely unacceptable in a free country.”
Correct. After tapping Flynn’s phone, the FBI then overhead a non-controversial, innocent phone call he had during then-President-elect Donald Trump’s transition in late 2016 with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
Obama-era FBI officials working under then-Director FBI then tricked Flynn into sitting with them for what they falsely claimed was a casual, off-the-record discussion. During the discussion, they then purposefully tried to make him misspeak.
“Mike Flynn was set up by corrupt law enforcement officials,” Carlson explained. “They suggested their goal was to ‘get him to lie so we can prosecute him or get him fired.’ That’s not speculation. The FBI wrote that down on paper. Flynn faced a maximum of five years in prison.”
Months after the interview, then-special counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecution team then coerced Flynn into making a false admission that he’d lied during it. How? By threatening him, according to his attorney, Sidney Powell.
“His plea was coerced by the lack of information and the threat to indict his son that shows in the documents we filed on the public docket on Friday,” she said late last month during an appearance on FNC’s “Hannity.”
The documents she cited were among the evidence used by the DOJ to justify its decision Thursday to drop its case again Flynn.
“The attorney general dropped the case because the Justice Department was already being used as a political tool to remove the national security adviser of the United States,” Carlson’s monologue continued. “That’s the whole point It’s not a debate. No honest person could reach any other conclusions. Read the documents yourself.”
Another fact that Omar ignored are all the privileges she enjoys as a Somalian refugee who was allowed to start a new life here in the states, but who has chosen to pay America back by trashing it nonstop — and all with support from the establishment media.
She’s also someone whom the evidence strongly suggests married her own brother so she could bring him to the states in violation of federal immigration laws. Yet this has been buried by the establishment press because of who she is.
So have reports about her violating campaign finance laws.
“Privilege” like marrying your brother to commit immigration fraud and not only getting away with it, but also getting elected to Congress dispite it.
Please spare us the bullshit!!! Thx. pic.twitter.com/ifpagOLaJY

Let’s talk about your privilege: married your brother (immigration fraud, incest, bigamy), you committed its fraud, stole money from your campaign and paid your lover now 20th husband, you’ve committed treason and sedition…what did I miss?

Being cleared of manufactured charges is “white privilege”? Being a Somalian refugee that gets the opportunity to serve in the Congress of the greatest country in history…IS A PRIVILEGE!

A Somali refugee who became a US citizen and rose to public office. You’d think she’d have more perspective on the positive attributes of the US instead of maligning the whole system through identity politics. She’s proof of the opposite.

White privilege is not a thing. Imagine being a refugee who was welcomed into a country then spending the rest of your life trying to divide that country. Ilhan is the definition of a life that doesn’t matter.

“Black Muslim Refugee Female” privilege is “at work” for @IlhanMN considering all of her crimes and she’s not yet in jail.
