Tucker Carlson, You’re Wrong About White Supremacy, Say Many Other Countries

In the wake of a mass shooting in El Paso, international news outlets are pointing to white supremacist terrorism as the cause.

Australia, for example: “US in the midst of a white nationalist terrorism crisis.”

In 2018, the Anti-Defamation League found that “39 of the 50 killings committed by political extremists were carried out by white supremacists.” Yet as NBC reported, while violence spurred by white nationalism is on the rise, the FBI has hesitated to label it as domestic terrorism. Fox television host Tucker Carlson insists to this day that white supremacy is a “hoax.”
