Overgrown frat boy Tucker Carlson played to his white nationalist fans by hosting a Mexican official, sneering and jeering at him, calling him "nauseating" and then all but calling for war with Mexico.
It was shades of Sean Hannity’s old yell-at-a-Muslim segments. Carlson made it clear his only interest in hosting Juan Hernandez, Guanajuato Secretary of Migration, was in order to demean him. And, not incidentally, to urge Fan in Chief Donald Trump to cut off aid to Mexico. You know, the remaining Mexican country whose aid Trump has not yet cut.
CARLSON: So but why isn't the Mexican government stopping migrants from Central America before they get to the United States? Instead, Mexico is encouraging them to come here. That's not the behavior of an ally. They're not welcome, they're not here legally. We have a process by which people can come legally - they're not going through that process. So that's an act of hostility and you can lie about it all you want, but we all know what it is. Why are we paying you money?
Mexico is a hostile power that is seeking to undermine our country and sovereignty.
If you ask me, Hernandez was way too polite to Carlson. Since he behaves like a condescending bigot and a brat, he should be treated like one.
Watch Carlson’s latest bit of ethnic hate mongering below, from the April 3, 2019 Tucker Carlson Tonight.
Disingenuous Tucker answers his own question in his opening remarks that he uses throughout the ‘interview’ to bludgeon Hernandez with. Mexico is a poor country dependent of migrant remittances and U.S. foreign aid with it’s own people migrating to America to escape its circumstances. Unmentioned is the insecurity in Mexico because of the excessive drug-related violence. On rival networks I’ve seen Central American immigrants asked why they don’t remain in Mexico and they say they’re not much better off there than their own countries they’re escaping.
Contrary to the bile spewing from the mouth of Fox News’ favorite white nationalist, poor Mexico has accommodated previous wishes of our Racist-in-Chief. As Hernandez points out, Mexico will allow immigrants to remain in their country for a year because the Trump administration implemented a policy of not letting asylum seekers on U.S. soil.
It’s only recently that it’s dawned on dumb-ass Trump his border wall is but a dream and having the military lay down many, many miles of razor wire isn’t working. In fact, since most of the immigrants are asylum seekers, even a barrier that’s 100% effective isn’t going to deter migration. So now he’s demanding Mexico do his dirty work and turn them away before immigrants and legitimately request asylum. On cue, Trump sycophant Tucker parrots Scumbag-in-Chief’s demands. No further analysis on Tucker’s part required other than working with his producer to come up with a handful of canned insults to hurl at his guest.
