Fox News host Tucker Carlson went on a rant Friday against Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, and other Democrats and politicians who have called for a more diverse workforce, government, and American way of life.
Carlson went off on anyone who has said “diversity is our strength” with the chyron on the screen blaring the question: “How exactly is ‘diversity’ our ‘strength’?”
He rhetorically asked how can we get along better “if you can’t understand each other or share no common values.” Then he noted that the less people have in common, the less likely they are to be “cohesive.”
Carlson’s thinking seems to line up with white nationalist rationales for limiting immigration or multiculturalism in our government, work places, and leadership.
A call for ad companies to protest his talk show went out Saturday and others took to Twitter outraged with his racist views.
It also seems Carlson has a limited understanding of the value of diversity. He listed marriage and the military as examples where diversity weakens the institution. This was shot down with the simple explanation of “science.”
