+ Some Americans understand the gravity of the threat and still act as cheerleaders for it. Michael Gerson in WaPo: “This is what modern, poll-tested, shrink-wrapped, mass-marketed racism looks like. Tucker Carlson is providing his audience with sophisticated rationales for their worst, most prejudicial instincts. And the brilliance of Carlson’s business model is to reinterpret moral criticism of his bigotry as an attack by elites on his viewers. Public outrage is thus recycled into fuel for MAGA victimhood. And so the Fox News machine runs on and on.”

He backed them when they promoted the seditious and ultimately deadly big lie. You think he’s gonna stop because the ADL issued a complaint?)
