For years Tucker Carlson was telling his audience that white nationalism doesn’t exist. The Fox News host even continued to make this argument after his top writer, Blake Neff, resigned over racist and misogynistic remarks he had made.

Still Carlson said on his Thursday show that fighting domestic terrorism will only create more terrorists. “Well, they’re creating extremists, just as we did in Iraq. They’re creating — they’re making it a dead certainty that somebody is gonna be driven into total lunacy and do something terrible. I mean, they are making people crazy. And dramatically elevating the chance that something really awful is going to happen. And I’m upset about it, I think we all should be.”
