Tucker Carlson debated a horribly racist Black Lives Matter supporter last night – compelling his guest to distance herself from the group by the end of the interview…
Last weekend, a New York City BLM group decided to throw an “Exclusively Black’ Memorial Day party creating what they called an ‘Exclusively Black Space.’
Being intentional about being around Black People is an act of resistance. This is an exclusively Black Space… -NY BLM Group
In response to the event, Fox’s Tucker Carlson hosted an ardent BLM supporter, who defended the segregated event with a series of regressive analogies and outdated race-based identity politics (scroll down for the video).
Tucker: I was confused by this because I thought the whole point of BLM – one of the points would be to speak out against singling people out on the basis of their race and punishing them for that. Because you can’t control what your race is, and yet they seem to be doing that. Explain that to me?
#1 – White Privilege
Lisa: What I say to that is BOO HOO HOO… You white people are angry because you couldn’t use your White Privilege card to get invited to the Black Lives Matters all black memorial day celebration!
Tucker: Well, hold on… [she does not]
#2 – Memorial Day was created by former slaves
Lisa: Memorial day was created by black former slaves in 1865 to honor those individuals who were union soldiers who fought and died for our freedoms. So Black Lives Matter in that same vein decided to get together with Black folks to make sure that Black folks are celebrated for being murdered by racist terrorists. If you’re mad at that, you just…. [mic cut]
Tucker: I’m not mad at that – I just have a really simple question for you. If you don’t like people excluding others on the basis of their race. And as a society, we agree that’s bad – why are you defending that?
#3 – Every day is ‘White Day’
Lisa: White folks crack me up… all of the sudden when ‘we’ want one day for black folks to focus on ourselves – but you’ve been having White Day forever!
#4 – Hollywood is racist
Lisa: You’ve had an all white Oscars, all these movies with all white actors – movie after movie after movie, all white TV shows with white casts over and over and over again.
Tucker: I hope you’re not speaking for anyone else. What you’re saying is SO hostile and separatist and crazy. It’s such a basic violation of what I thought we all agree on – which is that you don’t attack people for things you don’t control – namely their race.
#5 – White people are like unruly children at a wedding
Lisa: People give weddings where they exclude children. It doesn’t mean they don’t like children – they don’t know if your kids are gonna be monsters… So in that same vein, black lives matter decided to have one day where they didn’t want white folks that were gonna be off the rails. They don’t know if you’re gonna be behaved.
“Stay your asses out! We wanna celebrate today. We don’t want anybody going against us today.”
Tucker: And you can’t celebrate if someone that doesn’t look like you is around? You’re demented, actually. You’re sick. And what you’re saying is disgusting. And if you were a NAZI [Lisa: Ooooh!] I would say the same thing to you. Because what you’re saying is indistinguishable. “I don’t care your opinions, I don’t care your views – your life experience – your intentions… All I care about is the way you look,” something that you can’t control. And on that basis alone I’m judging you…
I can’t believe I have to say that out loud!
#6 – America is an inherently racist society
Lisa: Well unfortunately, when you have a racist society like America, you force individuals to come together collectively to make sure that they have a voice. And that’s unfortunate that the racism has caused people to come together collectively.
Tucker then asks Durden if there’s a single White person in America that she’d let into the event. Perhaps realizing what a total racist she’d been for the last 7 minutes, she distances herself from the BLM decision.
Lisa: Now I’m not Black Lives Matter. Black Lives Matter is a movement. However, however, however – I can respect the decision. It doesn’t mean it’s the decision I would have made. Maybe I would have. Just like a wedding where I might say your kids can’t bring their bad asses at my wedding!
Tucker: Children are not an ethnic group.
