Tucker Carlson Responds to Liberal Attacks Over His Criticism of Ilhan Omar
Posted by Mike LaChance
“No country can survive being ruled by people who hate it. We deserve better.”
During a recent monologue on his show, Tucker Carlson took on Rep. Ilhan Omar and offered a harsh, but entirely fair criticism of her. He must have struck a nerve, because progressives in media are fuming.
It all goes back to what was recently written about her in the Washington Post, specifically this passage:
In Omar’s version, America wasn’t the bighearted country that saved her from a brutal war and a bleak refugee camp. It wasn’t a meritocracy that helped her attend college or vaulted her into Congress. Instead, it was the country that had failed to live up to its founding ideals, a place that had disappointed her and so many immigrants, refugees and minorities like her.
In the following video, Carlson points out that Omar’s story is an American success story, while noting her tendency to criticize America at every turn with accusations of racism and injustice.
Watch the whole thing. I defy anyone to disprove any of the points Carlson makes. Also, pay attention to the positive things he says about Omar. He calls her a powerful young woman and says Americans were proud to see a former refugee become a member of Congress.
