Tucker Carlson blasted the left for hypocrisy on immigrants and Christopher Columbus on Fox News Monday.

Carlson said, “So the let has finally found the only immigrant in history who had no right to come to America. The only one who didn’t improve the place by his presence. His name? Christopher Columbus. His crime? Violating the sovereignty of the people who lived here already. Plus, he was the wrong ethnicity.

The Daily Caller co-founder continued, “Try making that argument about any other immigrant to American and see how long you keep your job.”

“Progressives have declared war on Christopher Columbus, as they have on most things older than last week. This is year zero on the revolutionary calendar. History starts now. Ignorance of the past isn’t simply tolerated, it’s required,” Carlson added.

The FNC host also said the the left’s problem isn’t really with Columbus but it is a leftist attack on the “West itself–its history, its political and intellectual legacy.”
