Suffice it to say, Fox News host Tucker Carlson is no fan of “woke” Gen. Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
In a Thursday night segment of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” that focused on “anti-white mania” in the country, the spewing of race hate oozing out of American universities and infecting the nation at no less a success rate than the Chinese plague, Carlson set his sights on Milley’s embrace of critical race theory and “white rage.”
“He’s not just a pig. He’s stupid!” Carlson said, with a hearty laugh.
Appearing on Capitol Hill this week, the highest-ranking and most senior military officer in the U.S. Armed Forces spoke about critical race theory and even suggested “white rage” was behind the Jan. 6 protest at the U.S. Capitol Building.
“I do think it’s important, actually, for those of us in uniform to be open-minded and be widely read,” Milley said. “I want to understand white rage. And I’m white. And I want to understand it. So what is it that caused thousands of people to assault this building and try to overturn the Constitution of the United States of America? What caused that? I want to find that out.”

Carlson played a clip of those remarks and others, before opining on how the general got his job in the first place.
“He didn’t get that job because he’s brilliant or because he’s brave or because the people who know him, respect him. He is not and they definitely don’t,” the Fox News host said. “Milley got the job because he knows who to suck up to and he’s more than happy to do it. Feed him a script and he will read it.”
“It’s hard to believe that man wears a uniform. He’s that unimpressive,” Carlson said. “Notice he never defined white rage — and we should know what it is. What is white rage? Well, like drapetomania, it’s one of those diseases that only affect people with certain melanin levels. It’s a race-specific illness.”
Milley would go on to disingenuously ask “what is wrong with understanding, having some situational understanding about the country for which we are here to defend?”
The inquiry ignores the reality that critical race theory looks at U.S. history through a hard-left lens, a one-sided take that serves the ultimate goal of CRT: reparations.
“So Mark Milley reads Mao to understand Maoism, he reads communists to understand communism. But, interestingly, he doesn’t read white supremacists to understand white supremacy. Why not? Go to the source. He’d be fired for that instantly, and that’s the one thing he doesn’t want. So he reads about white rage as if it’s totally real,” Carlson said.
“It’s a medical condition,” he continued. “And by the way, if it’s a medical condition at what age can you catch white rage? Most of us assumed our two-year-olds were just teething. Now we know it’s their whiteness that’s making them so angry. Thanks, Mark Milley. We appreciate your contribution to our generation’s scientific racism. By the way, have you read anything about wining wars recently? Apparently not.”
Interestingly, when Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin appeared before the House Armed Services Committee hearing on the Pentagon budget, he would downplay the influence of critical race theory, which is being taught at the U.S. military academy West Point.
Austin had said earlier that it was not, and U.S. Rep. Mike Waltz, R-Fla. dismantled that notion, citing a letter he received from the superintendent of West Point.
“This is not something that the United States military is embracing and pushing and causing people to subscribe to,” Austin said, under questioning from Waltz.
