Tucker Carlson pulled back the curtain on the so-called message of unity delivered by newly sworn-in President Joe Biden.
The Fox News host delved into the left’s war on “white supremacy” and how “there’s a catch” to Biden’s inaugural speech that, on the surface, appeared to be a call for Americans to unite. The message, Carlson contended in a lengthy monologue on Tucker Carlson Tonight Wednesday, doesn’t actually include every American.
“So to recap, Joe Biden respects people’s differences, but at the same time, he’s going to train us to be very different from the way we are. He will bring hope and decency, he will fill the yawning void where our empathy should be,” Carlson said reacting to mainstream media coverage.
“The funny thing is…every person with a microphone in every TV studio in America today knew the fuller truth when they said things like the ones you just heard. They knew, for example, for certain that Joe Biden isn’t well. Everyone in Washington knows that, but no one said it out loud, not a word. They withheld that news from you, as they have for months. So much for speaking truth to power,” he said.

“We flipped-off CNN and decided to check out Joe Biden’s speech for ourselves, and it was interesting both for what it said and for what it didn’t say,” Carlson told viewers.
“One particular part of the speech stuck out especially,” he added, saying one portion was “very hard to disagree with,” playing a clip of Biden speaking of “uniting our nation.”
The Fox News host acknowledged that “if Joe Biden can bring unity to this country, he will be a legitimately great president.”
“But there’s a catch. There always is a catch,” he cautioned.
“Unity doesn’t mean every single American because not everyone who was born within our borders really is an American. Some of us are beyond the pale of citizenship, morally. We may have American passports and birth certificates, but effectively are hostile foreigners,” Carlson said.
Biden vowed that the “rise of political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism,” would be something “we must confront and we will defeat.”
Carlson agreed that while most Americans would agree on the premise, and what seems to be a core of the Democrat agenda, there seems to be some confusion about what it means to “wage war on white supremacists.”
Arguing that it is not a question of semantics, Carlson pointed out, that Biden “is not a high school debate coach.”
“Joe Biden controls the largest military and largest law enforcement agencies in the world. He has now declared war, so we should know, specifically and precisely, who exactly he has declared war on,” Carlson said, as he went on to deliver several examples of what has been posited as a definition, albeit a broad one.
“Bloomberg News has described a wall along our southern border as ‘a Monument to White Supremacy,’ so be certain not to support that. Colin Kaepernick, who seems to have the unequivocal support of corporate America, calls the Fourth of July an example of white supremacy. You’d better put away the fireworks and the hot dogs,” Carlson quipped.
“The United States Army, a trusted institution if there ever was one, has used an entire manual on what is and what is not white supremacy,” he noted, adding that “among the tell-tale signs of a committed white supremacist are these: celebrating Columbus Day, using the term ‘American exceptionalism’, any support for federal border security, or English-only measures, or ‘education funding from property taxes,” he continued.
“Using the phrase ‘there’s only one human race’ is white supremacy too, according to the Army,” he explained. “And of course, voting for Donald Trump.”

“Here’s the problem: Let’s say you don’t buy those definitions. Let’s say you’re, for example, white but poor and you have trouble accepting the idea that you’re benefiting from some kind of structural advantage. Well, you’d better shut up about it if you know what’s good for you because according to the United States Army, the ‘denial of white privilege’ is a classic sign of yes, white supremacy. So no complaining,” Carlson said.
He reminded viewers that within months of the launch of his primetime Fox News show, there was “an organized and highly aggressive campaign by prominent Democrats to denounce us as white supremacists.”
“Why are we opposed to judging people on the basis of their race? Not simply because we were taught to oppose doing that – though we were – but because it’s immoral and it’s immoral because we believe in God. That’s the real answer,” he continued.
“Believing in God doesn’t make you a good person, unfortunately, but believing in God does answer the question of where we came from. God made us. That’s what believers believe. Once you understand that, it is impossible to think that any one race is inherently better or worse than any other race,” Carlson said.
“So the question is, why have they kept denouncing us as, of all things, white supremacists? We’ve thought a lot about that. You should think a lot about it too, now that the Biden administration has declared war on people they claim have white supremacist ideas,” he told his audience.
“In our case, it all started when we began criticizing the people in charge,” Carlson explained, noting how the people who run the country “don’t like to be criticized,” citing private equity, Google, Citibank, China, and “even silly Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with her massive social media accounts.”
“On the other hand, they don’t care to defend themselves directly with reason and fact, often they can’t do that. So instead, they denounce you and their critics as white supremacists, and then they just ignore what you say,” he continued. “Fine, we’ve dealt with this for years, we’re used to it, it no longer hurts our feelings.”
“But there’s a new regime in power starting today, and they seem to be planning to accelerate things dramatically. They’re getting the FBI and the Pentagon involved in this hunt for people who may criticize them,” Carlson concluded. “That’s a very big change, and you should understand what it’s really about.”
