Fox News host Tucker Carlson defended himself against charges of racism Wednesday night, calling a Mediaite blogger who accused him of white nationalism a “coward.”
The Daily Caller co-founder began with addressing the piece. “On a website called Mediaite, blogger Justin Baragona wrote a piece entitled, ‘Tucker Carlson isn’t even Trying To Hide His White Nationalist Leanings Anymore.'”
“His evidence for this? Well it was a segment we did pointing out that the Democratic Party has basically given up trying to appeal to the American middle class and have started openly encouraging illegal immigration. We didn’t mention race at all because it’s irrelevant,” Carlson said.
He went on, “so how exactly does that qualify as white nationalism? Well, Justin Baragona didn’t explain or accept our invitation to come on the show and explain his reasoning, because like an awful lot of name callers, he’s a coward.”
