    If White Supremacists don't commit any racially motivated hate crimes, then they should not be of concern to anybody.

    Your logic reminded me of this other fantastic example of logic.

    “It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination.” - Douglas Adams.

    I find this idea very comforting.

    Really.
    Yes, the assault Carlson's family suffered was horrible. Kicking in his door while his family slept.
    And after a ridiculous racist Antifa member was interviewed by Carlson and was made to look like a fool. That loser lost his position at a university due to the psychotic ramblings he made on his Twitter feed about killing cops.
    Antifa! Terrorists. Kind of funny how they claim to be Anti-Fascism and yet want to terrorize anyone that doesn't follow their jack boot ideology. Most likely dropped out of school and live in the basement of their parents home plotting their evil at the next rally they attend thanks to mom giving them a ride. Or gas money.

    Cowards assail Carlson on-line and he has plenty of haters. Slander and defamation, were they to go public and use their full legal name would likely result in legal consequences.

    I was just reading that investigators are now pretty confident that he wrote the manifesto.

    Tucker Carlson said that immigrants make the U.S. “poorer and dirtier”

    Advertisers recoil as Tucker Carlson says immigrants make US ‘dirtier’


    The said the people of Iraq semiliterate primitive monkeys

    Fox news host Tucker Carlson called Iraqis 'semiliterate primitive monkeys' in second audio recording

    He rails against demographic change.

    https://www.google.ca/amp/s/www.vox...ker-carlson-demographics-immigration-fox-news

    And perhaps my favourite is when he claimed Mexican food was invented by whites and Mexicans were usurping his culture.

    Tucker Carlson's Taco Tantrum: 'It’s An American Food! ... Those Are My Tacos. Mine!'

    And even in the article in the OP Carlson is providing cover for White Supremacists

    I know some people won’t see it unless he is wearing a white sheet holding a sign saying “I’m a white supremacist. Ask me how.

    You've made a strong case that he's bigoted.
    But not for white supremacism.
    It's possible...but not proven.

    True.
    What we could be witnessing in the slur against Carlson is the parroting of the rhetoric making rounds thanks to Mo Elleithee, a Democrat political strategist. And one who has scandal in his history.

    Donald Trump: Democrats Use Racism Attack Every Time They Are Down


    Jake Tapper Admits Trump Did Not Call Neo-Nazis 'Very Fine People'

    Now, if we want to look at the history of a real racist, lets look at Democrat Joe Biden. Who has called Trump the most racist president in history. Biden! Who thinks people have a short memory.

    June 2019:
    Joe Biden’s years-old letters to racist senator revealed

    And people think Biden has changed because Biden likes to imply that very thing. When? When did this epiphany of, I'm a racist Aorifice, come to light in Joe's brain? While he was VP just a few short years ago? No, not then. Because he was in the White house he'd hoped for years to occupy as President.
    And oh, how he claimed, "I love the guy", Barack Obama. When did that happen I wonder?
    Remember this gaffe by creepy uncle Joe?
    " “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” he said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” "
    Biden: Obama Clean, Articulate, Bright African-American

    FWIW, I don't think Creepy Uncle Joe is "racist".

    Were you paying attention? Seriously. His political history says otherwise.

    What I know of it doesn't indicate so.

    Ideologies do not contain themselves to thoughts.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't Tucker promote fears of white genocide through immigration? And I recall some fairly racist comments from him on something called Bubba the Love Sponge.

    He said things that were not PC but nothing about white genocide to my knowledge.

    I read them, and, I mean...I guess I can see why he is so afraid of the "outrage mob." Here are the "not PC" racial comments:

    ""Iraq is a crappy place filled with a bunch of, you know, semiliterate primitive monkeys -- that's why it wasn't worth invading."

    "I'm not defending the war in any way, but I just have zero sympathy for [Iraqis] or their culture. A culture where people just don't use toilet paper or forks."

    "The Congressional Black Caucus exists to blame the white man for everything, and I'm happy to say that in public because it's true. Everyone knows it's true."

    "I still can't get over, you know, Obama saying, 'They're going to attack me because I'm Black.' I mean, that's just ridiculous. I mean, that is so low to say something like that ... Everybody knows that Barack Obama would still be in the state Senate in Illinois if he were white."

    "How is [Obama] Black, for one thing? He has one white parent, one Black parent."

    Tucker Carlson says he won't apologize to "mob" for Bubba the Love Sponge comments - CBS News

    And here are other things that make me totally distrust this man:

    "In my brief experience, you know what gets women going is arguing with them, " Carlson said in 2006. Carlson said that if a feminist says "men really need to be more sensitive," a man should say, "actually, men don't need to be more sensitive. You just need to be quiet and kind of do what you're told."

    "Now, 13-year-old boys getting laid, not a bad thing. Thirteen-year-old girls getting laid, bad thing. Particularly if the 13-year-old girl is your daughter, right?" Carlson said in 2006. "Because when a 13-year-old boy is 35, he can barely remember the girls he slept with when he was 13 ... But a 13-year-old girl, when she's 35, she's still thinking about that guy. I mean, it's just a much deeper experience for girls at that age and they're not ready for that."

    Tucker Carlson refuses to apologize amid uproar over past comments on 'extremely primitive' women

    I get these are on a shock-jock show and are quoted out of context, but he said them and hasn't apologized for them.

    My take: white supremacy and xenophobia is a problem and has been more public since Obama became President. Trump exploited this for his own ends through the birther movement and suggesting Obama was Muslim. Given the current political landscape and technological ability to spread information much quicker than normal, folks who are (or use) things like racist, xenophobic, sexist, etc are likely pretty scared and anything they can do to delegitimize the significance of the labels would be helpful to them.

    Hard to find full context for a lot of that.

    Tucker is TV version of a shock jock. His whole show is nothing but that. He has nothing without promoting outrage he claims to hate

    So, you admit that the person you are talking about suffers from psychotic episodes. Instead of berating him, you should show some empathy and be glad it is not you who suffers a mental disability.

    It's also sad that you want to paint the entire Antifa movement based on the mental problems of one of its otherwise obscure members.
