“This is the mainstreaming of neo-Nazi hatred in America." My 5-minute monologue tonight, on the @MehdiHasanShow , on the dangerous embrace of 'great replacement theory' and white supremacist rhetoric by Tucker Carlson, enabled by Fox and the Murdochs:
To avenge the 3,000 innocents who died on 9/11, the U.S. under Bush invaded, occupied and/or bombed multiple Muslim-majority countries, leading to the deaths of 100s of 1000s of innocents who had nothing to do with 9/11. The war on terror only gave us more war and more terror.
Hey US media folks, here, I would argue immodestly, is how you interview a Trump supporter on Trump's lies:
Literally the only Tucker Carlson interview you ever need to watch - with the brilliant @rcbregman . Still makes me chuckle:
In the past 24 hours, Muslims in U.S. & U.K. have been murdered outside of mosques. When will we admit anti-Muslim hatred is out of control?
To be clear: there is no other Western democracy I can think of where armed men in camo and other military-style gear regularly turn up on the streets of cities and towns, who aren't themselves anything to do with law enforcement but who get left alone by law enforcement.
