On Wednesday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson shined a light on the U.S. Navy’s adoption of radical reading materials, including a book written by a black supremacist.
Of particular interest to him was Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Michael Gilday’s recommendation that sailors read the work of black supremacist Ibram X. Kendi.
In his manifesto “How to Be an Antiracist,” Kendi explicitly argues that because of America’s PAST sins, white Americans alive today deserve to be discriminated against with the same fervor applied by the anti-black racists of the Jim Crow era.
Kendi also argues that it’s contingent on other minorities, particularly Asians, to bow to the whims of blacks, lest they want to be labeled “white-adjacent.”
That the Navy would recommend sailors read such propaganda bothered Carlson.
Listen below to some of his thoughts from his Thursday monologue on Fox News’ “Fox News Tonight“:
The Fox News host was particularly troubled by how Gilday tried to defend his reading recommendation while being questioned Tuesday by Republican Study Committee chair Jim Banks.
During a back-and-forth exchange with the congressman, the Navy chief argued that his sailors reading Kendi’s book would engender “a better Navy” by promoting “open, honest conversations about racism.”
According to Carlson, it was as if Gilday has never once read Kendi’s work himself because, in his work, the black supremacist hate-monger demonizes those who would dare to speak openly and transparently about race.
“Open and honest conversations are racist — Kendi has said many times. Let’s say, open and honestly, you decided you cared more about the way people behave than the way they look,” Carlson noted.
“Let’s say you took Martin Luther King at his word and judged people by the content of their character, not by their skin color. If you do that, Kendi says, you are a racist,” he added.
This is all true.
MLK specifically promoted colorblindness, a concept that Kendi vociferously rejects. He’d rather America adopt a racial hierarchy in which certain races sit at the top while every other race lies on a lower rung. It’s no surprise therefore that he supports affirmative action, a policy that benefits blacks at the expense of Asians.
I was struck by this @nytimes story’s lead sentence that ended: “signaling that the administration will champion race-blind admissions standards.” Newsflash: Terms like “race-blind” and “race-neutral” were created by the opponents of affirmative action.https://t.co/VKXs2obPsb

It is amazing how often journalists use the vocabulary of racism while imagining themselves as objective. I suspect most journalists do not realize it. We all have been taught racist vocabulary words. “Race-blind” and “color-blind” are in the dictionary of racist ideas.

“All lives matter” can be found in the same lexicon of “reverse discrimination” and “race neutral” and “color blind” and “post-racial” and “only one race, the human race” and “we’re all biased” and “both sides.”

“So, no, open and honest conversations are not allowed in Kendi’s America. Here’s the choice: admit you’re a racist, or else you’re a super-duper racist. That’s his position,” Carlson continued.
Like a religion, Kendi’s ideology, so-called antiracism, is centered on original sin. Antiracism, which is a subset of critical race theory, asserts that every white person is inherently guilty of racism and must therefore spend the remainder of their days atoning for it.
The difference between conventional religions and CRT, however, is that this ideology offers no forgiveness.
“It sounds pretty deranged, honestly,” Carlson noted as he continued his monologue.
“In fact, it sounds like an extremist ideology – just the kind the military is always us warning about,” he added.
Except that to the Biden administration, “extremism” apparently refers only to anyone with a non-establishment-approved opinion. And since antiracism is approved by the establishment, it doesn’t appear to count. But supporting former President Donald Trump reportedly does.
“Keep in mind, the Pentagon is investigating National Guardsmen who posted unfashionable opinions on Facebook about the last election, or may have voted for Trump,” Carlson noted.
Listen below to the rest of his thoughts:
He then asked, “So with all their investigators running around looking into people’s thought crimes, how closely have they looked, has the Pentagon looked, into Ibram X. Kendi? Have they checked his social media history?”
If they had, they’d know that he’s described white people as a different breed of humans, accused white people of being responsible for the AIDs virus, and even explicitly written that, because of his anger over former President George W. Bush’s 2000 election, “white people became devils to me.”
But perhaps the military did look into Kendi’s history — and perhaps they agree with his thoughts. It might explain why members of the United States military forces are now reportedly being subjected to mandatory “white privilege” training and forced to read identitarian propaganda like that written by Kendi and others.
And it may perhaps also explain why the military is now trying to recruit new members with “woke” ads like the one documented below:

Besides indoctrinating those who are susceptible to propaganda, the military’s embrace of Kendi’s antiracism is also driving out quality men and women, Carlson warned.
“Good people, driven from military service, many of them serving generationally because their fathers and grandfathers did, are having to leave now purely because of the extremist ideology of its leaders. It’s crushing if you think about it. But it’s also scary for all of us. We need the military,” he said.
Concluding his monologue, he added, “But the commissars in the Biden administration don’t care. They’re not slowing down. They’re intensifying the political purge in the ranks. NASA just announced its new mission has nothing to do with space. The new mission is about applying the principles in Ibram Kendi’s book. The new mission is equity.”
