Tucker Carlson continued his attack on the Black Lives Matter movement on Monday Tucker Carlson tonightThis time he complains about the recent surge in the group’s popularity. A new Rasmussen poll, pointed out by Carlson as a right-wing pollster, found that 62% of likely voters were positive about BLM, while finding that President Trump’s approval rate was only 43%.
“Here is some breaking news that we never expected: Black Lives Matter is now more popular than the President of the United States,” Carlson announced, “and no less popular than the President, much more popular.”
But Carlson also quickly pointed out that Trump is not alone.
“Black Lives Matter is far more popular than Joe Biden,” said Carlson. “It’s more popular than America’s religious institutions. It’s more popular than the media, Congress, and big business. Black [Lives] Matter is popular in double digits than the Democratic and Republican parties. It is almost as popular as the U.S. military. It is much more popular than the Pope. “
At one point, Carlson seemed to point out the fact that advertisers canceled his show quickly last week after claiming that Black Lives Matter and the protests after George Floyd’s murder were “definitely not a black life,” and he scolded a Sesame Street Special to educate children about racism.
“Imagine a world where you will be punished for questioning the President’s behavior or for insulting your local mayor. You probably can’t imagine that, it’s too bizarre. It’s un-American, ”said Carlson. “But here we are right now. Black Lives Matter has changed the rules and here is their first new rule: No criticism of Black Lives Matter.”
Carlson also linked the largely peaceful protests against Black Lives Matter that had been going on for weeks with the riots and looting that took place shortly after Floyd’s death. Carlson has punished local governments and police agencies for dealing with protesters. He even tried to convince his audience that Black Lives Matter is more powerful than the Department of Justice.
“Is there a reason why the DOJ has not filed a conspiracy charge against the people who organized and led the unrest?” Carlson asked. “It’s not like we don’t know who they are, their crimes are on YouTube. They know the reason: Black Lives Matter was involved.”
And Carlson made it clear what he thinks about supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement: they are animals.
“Black Lives Matter is becoming more powerful and popular in public. Why does that happen exactly? “Carlson asked.” Here’s why: Because Black Lives Matter gets exactly what they want, and that’s the most basic sign of strength. Starch is the most attractive quality for voters, people and animals. “
Tucker Carlson tonight is broadcast on weekdays at 8 p.m. on Fox News Channel.
