CNN host W. Kamau Bell cursed out Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Sunday night, during an interview with an Antifa activist on his show “United Shades of America.”

Bell, who spoke at an Antifa rally in the summer of 2017, was interviewing a woman who goes by the name Ariel, and he began by disclosing his history with Carlson on the subject of Antifa.

“Full disclosure: Tucker Carlson from Fox News at one point in the not-too-distant past labeled me a leader of Antifa,” Bell stated.

He then proceeded to play a 2017 clip from Carlson’s show in which he called Bell “a supporter of Antifa,” before adding that, “They hate this country and want to tear it down. None of that seems to matter to Kamau Bell… You are peddling hate and Bell is,” Carlson said.


“If you’re opposed to fascism then you are Antifa because it’s anti-fascism. That could be a lot of things,” Ariel stated after Bell asked about Antifa’s beliefs. “Maybe they’re a great programmer, and they could build a website to educate children.”

“So I went to visit this protest in Portland. There was like the Proud Boys and this group called ACT. It’s anti-Islamic and this guy just ran at these two girls and so they were both wearing hijabs and he definitely looked like he was going to hit them, jump on them,” she later added. “I didn’t really even think about it, I jumped, like, at him but I picked him up like off the ground and I threw him on the ground and I jumped on him and started, like, punching him.”

Ariel also at one point showed Bell her brass knuckles and a knife she keeps on her.

She went on to explain how Antifa “doxes” certain individuals and then Bell went on to display a flier doxing an ICE employee. The flier labeled this individual as “a modern Nazi” who is “putting people including children in concentration camps.” (RELATED: Antifa Protesters Block Portland Traffic, Nearly Start Riot During Patrick Kimmons Vigil)

Bell concluded the interview by saying, “Before I wrap it up, I just want to say, ‘F*ck Tucker Carlson.'”

Back in November, an Antifa mob appeared at Carlson’s house, while he was at work. His wife was home alone at the time and called the police when the mob began banging on their front door.
