I regret to inform you that Tucker Carlson, a thumb with a face and Fox News
resident white supremacist, is at it again. And by it, I mean his trademark
combination of racism and stupidity.
During his Thursday show, Carlson highlighted Congolese immigrant Therese
Okoumous recent immigration protest at the base of the Statue of Liberty.
Just yesterday, Carlson said, a Congolese immigrant shut down the Statue of
Libertyour Statue of Libertyto protest the Trump administrations immigration
policies. The left applauded that.
First off, of course the left did. The protest was extremely good, duh.
Secondly, nothing says raging nationalist who is literally trying to own the
female symbol of immigration like the words our Statue of Liberty.
"Think about what you are watching right here. Congo is a war-ravaged
hell-scape, a country noted for mass rape and cannibalism. Imagine escaping a
country like that, and being welcomed in our country, the United States. You
would be grateful, wouldnt you? Many Congolese are grateful. This person is not
grateful at all. She took over one of our monuments to scream about how racist
we are, and progressives support her.
They have gone insane.
Fear-mongering, colonial racism? Check. White savior complex? Check. Being an
unapologetic asshole? Super-duper check.
Okoumou, for her part, has pled not guilty to three federal misdemeanor charges
stemming from her protest. After her court hearing in New York on Thursday, she
quoted Michelle Obamas line, When they go low, we go high, adding, I went as
high as I could.
She faces as much as six months behind bars for each of her charges.
