Fox News host and America First champion Tucker Carlson blasted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and America’s system of mass immigration on his show Tuesday night.
Who: Tucker Carlson, host of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
What: “Ilhan Omar is living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country,” Carlson said. “A system designed to strengthen America is instead undermining it. Some of the very people we try hardest to help have come to hate us passionately. Maybe that’s our fault for asking too little of our immigrants. We aren’t self-confident enough to make them assimilate, so they never feel fully American.”
“Or maybe the problem is deeper than that,” he continued. “Maybe we’re importing people from places whose values are simply antithetical to ours. Who knows that the problem is? But there is a problem, and whatever the cause, this cannot continue. It’s not sustainable. No country can import large numbers of people who hate it and expect to survive. The Romans were the last to try that, with predictable results.”
“So be grateful for Ilhan Omar, annoying as she is. She’s a living fire alarm – a warning to the rest of us that we better change our immigration system immediately or else,” he finished.
When: Tuesday night.
Where: Carlson ran the monologue on his primetime Fox News show.
Why It Matters: Omar is a Somali refugee who won a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. She is outspoken about America’s flaws, like most of today’s political left, but ungrateful for its kindness, which perhaps saved her life. She has described America as racist, cruel, and unjust. That sentiment began during the Obama administration, who held a fundamental view that America was an evil place and needed to be saved from itself. It is a pervasive ideology, and one that that taken hold of the Democratic Party.
Carlson is a border hawk, known for vehemently defending the America First agenda, and pushing relentlessly to close the U.S. southern border with Mexico. There have been reports that Carlson is being considered to replace Vice President Mike Pence on President Trump’s 2020 ticket.
