Fox News’ Tucker Carlson spoke frankly on Monday about demographic change in the United States.
“Now, before you start calling anyone bigoted…”
“A recent piece in National Geographic tells you a lot about demographics in America, and about how bewilderingly fast they’re changing without any real public debate on the subject,” The Daily Caller co-founder said.
“The magazine profiles the small coal mining town of Hazleton, Pennsylvania. In the year 2000, Hazleton’s population was 2 percent Hispanic. Just 16 years later, Hazleton is majority Hispanic. That’s a lot of change. People who grew up in Hazleton return to find out they can’t communicate with the people who now live there. And that’s bewildering for people. That’s happening all over the country. No nation, no society has ever changed this much, this fast.” (RELATED: ‘Why Don’t We Get Real?’: Tucker Takes On Illegal Immigrant Lawyer [VIDEO])
“Now, before you start calling anyone bigoted, consider and be honest, how would you feel if that happened in your neighborhood? It doesn’t matter how nice the immigrants are. They probably are nice. Most immigrants are nice, that’s not the point. The point is–this is more change than human beings are designed to digest. This pace of change makes societies volatile–really volatile, just as ours has become volatile.”
“And notice where this change is not happening? Any place our leaders live. They caused all of us with their reckless immigration policies, and yet their own neighborhoods are basically unchanged, they look like it’s 1960. No demographic change at all in their zip codes. Our leaders are for diversity, just not where they live.” (RELATED: ‘It’s Just Unbelievable’: Jeff Sessions Lays Down The Law With Tucker [VIDEO])
