“Here’s Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib explaining that Pelosi is oppressing people of color. ‘Give us power because of our skin color’ — that’s the argument Tlaib is making. Many make that argument, Ocasio-Cortez made the very same case during her Democratic primary campaign last year. By definition, it is a racist pitch. It’s every bit as repugnant as a white candidate making the same appeal, and many Democrats did make that appeal – racial appeal – under Jim Crow. “Vote for me because of my race,” it’s disgusting, but it’s everywhere now and Democrats applaud it.” – Tucker Carlson, on last night’s show.
