Fox News host Tucker Carlson spoke up about how CNN commentator W. Kamau Bell took the mic and a bullhorn at an Antifa rally called “No Hate in the Bay” in California. Bell hosts “The United Shades of America” program for CNN. Carlson said that he willingly and earnestly partook in the loud protest. Carlson noted about Antifa: “They hate this country. They want to tear it down. They are totalitarian in their beliefs and in their aims.”
As the Antifa demonstrators overran the protestors who gathered for a Patriot Prayer event, Bell cheered their departure calling them “Nazis.” The Patriot Prayer event was led by founder Joey Gibson, who has vehemently denounced neo-Nazis and white supremacists.
Carlson said that Bell willfully incited rage by calling his enemies Nazis. The Fox News host also noted that his show would be quickly canceled if he ever participated in the right-wing version of Bell’s rally. Carlson postulated what it would be like if he spoke at a rally in which conservatives donned masks, clutched weapons and ran Hillary Clinton supporters out of a rally threatening violence in the name of the Second Amendment.
“If you’re not willing to say you want a world safe for all Americans equally, you are peddling hate, and Bell is,” Carlson said. He pointed to Bell’s written statement after the rally. Carlson relayed that he had contacted CNN and asked about one of their hosts “stoking violent extremism as a sidegig” but heard nothing back from the news network. Bell did not respond to an invitation to explain himself on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Bell never took his opportunity with the mic or the bullhorn to denounce Antifa’s violence. He did say, “When the Nazis leave, as they have left…you have to stand up for the brown people, the black people, the LGBT people, the immigrants–everybody everyday!”
