Tucker Carlson Says Anti-ICE Protestor Should be ‘Grateful’: Congo is Hellscape Noted for Rape and Cannibalism

Tucker Carlson kicked off his Fox News show on Thursday night by warning his viewers that leftist extremism is getting out of control.

His evidence: Alan Dershowitz claiming he was shunned on Martha’s Vineyard, and the anti-ICE protestor, a Congolese immigrant, who scaled the Statue of Liberty on July 4th.

“Signs of growing extremism in this country on the left are everywhere,” Carlson warned. “Just yesterday, a Congolese immigrant shut down the Statue of Liberty — our Statue of Liberty — to protest the Trump administration’s immigration policies. The left applauded that.”

It’s unclear who on the left Tucker is referring to here, but no time to focus on that, because he’s about to drop a massive fear-mongering, dog-whistling bombshell:

“Take three steps back and think about what you are watching right here,” Carlson said. “Congo a war-ravaged hellscape, 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, wouldn’t you? 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,” he declared.
