Tucker Carlson tells people to ignore White supremacy and instead focus on class consciousness.

This is a far-right agenda, and class-only leftists like Bernie Sanders are playing into it.

I wonder how many repetitions of this phrase it will take before the general populace believes that anything to the right of Mao Tse-Tung and Trotsky is 'far-right'.

Aren't you one of those who peddles the ridiculous notion of "cultural Marxism"? Why, then, are you defending this person who is pushing literal Marxist rhetoric?

Am I? You tell me, as I'm sure you will. And perhaps you can also tell me what in my post led you to believe I have defended anything in this thread?

White Supremacy theory has been disproven.

Besides, there are various inequalities in the society, so there is no point in being racist and fighting white supremacy.

Let me decipher it for you:
Let's take this: Fox News promotes Communism in order to distract from the White supremacy threat
And break it down word for word
1. Fox News
An American right-wing news channel.
2. Communism
A system of social organisation in which the community owns property, not individuals. Often seen as extremely left-wing and inherently negative.
3. White supremacy threat
White supremacy is the racist and incorrect belief that people who are white are better than those who are not.
SO.
An american right-wing news channel spoke about an extreme left-wing negative concept to distract people from the threat of racism
Basically meaning that they spoke about communism to try and shift attention onto that and off of white supremacy

Bernie consistently and directly calls out White supremacy.


Fox News promotes communism... That must be why Fox viewers think communism is constantly on the verge of taking over America and live in a state of fear. :rolleyes:

The point is that most Americans and Fox News viewers are, pal.

Then why was it, when Sanders appeared on a Fox News debate in a town hall, the hall applauded him?

It seems that the Fox audience likes Sanders. He may pay lip service 'calling out' white supremacy in weak terms, but by going on Fox News and accepting support from these people, he fails to distance himself from the white supremacy that Fox News peddles.

I don't think that's a fair statement, I think the majority of Americans don't seem too thrilled with the state of affairs. the point about fox news viewers is fair game though.

Because virtually all of of Bernie's major policies are supported by a majority of Americans, including a majority of Republicans. Nothing to do with "communism".

Thanks, I understood that part but what did he mean by "This is a far-right agenda, and class-only leftists like Bernie Sanders are playing into it."?

Starchify was incorrect in their summary.

Fox News has been opening itself up more to a certain section of the "left" - the class-only leftists, aka brocialists. They host these figures as an attack on the "SJWs" in the American left, because brocialists are seemingly as much worried by the prospect of racial and gender justice as they claim to want class justice.

For instance, Tucker Carlson interviewed Angela Nagle (an author of a book entitled 'The Left Case against Open Borders') about the DSA (Democratic Socialists of America) meeting, where they both complain about the "identity politics" of the DSA. They have hosted Bernie Sanders, a "left"-wing figure who pushes for firmer border controls under the dubious notion that immigration reduces workers' wages in the US

And here, Carlson criticises the "identity politics" of the "SJWs" for being predominantly pushed by the rich, and claims that this is because the rich want to keep the focus off of the economic disparity in the US, which he claims is the primary driver of social issues, and to keep the working class divided.

Or, to remove the gloss, the irate flightless bird intends to denigrate a cente-right commentator with the slur 'far-right' and seeks to further the impression that any politcal opinion to the right of Marx or Trotsky is far-right and, by extension, extremist. It is a common theme in posts from that source.
