At this point it can clearly be said that Fox News is obsessed with Critical Race Theory. In fact, anchors on the network have mentioned the theory over 1300 times since March.
And no one pushes the topic harder than prime time host Tucker Carlson. The purveyor of white grievance went a step farther than usual on Tuesday night. Carlson called for cameras to be installed in every classroom so that teachers talking about race can be disciplined.
The host began, “The overwhelming majority of Americans – and pollsters have found this pretty clearly – think this is insane. They think you should judge people by what they do, not on the basis of their skin color.”
“We can’t really be sure until we finally get cameras in the classroom, as we put them on the chests of police officers, until we finally get a civilian review board in every town in America to oversee the people teaching your children, forming their minds. And let’s hope we get both of those very soon. But until we do, we can’t know exactly how widespread this is.”
