Fox host and all-around-racist Tucker Carlson told viewers last night that transgender people are “Satanic.”
Carlson was responding to a guest’s assertion that the political left’s focus on civil rights, economic equality, and treating people with kindness is “in direct objection to God.”

Carlson set his guest up with a softball unanswerable question.
“What is the actual support for the ideas? Not do you like Trump or Biden? But, for example, do you think men can get pregnant? Or do you think some races are morally superior to other races? Like the core ideas of the Democratic Party. How many Americans actually believe that stuff, would you guess?” he asked.
Right wing radio host Jason Whitlock stumbled through some random percentage points before hitting his stride.
“I think a lot of what the left supports is satanic. I’m just sorry. It’s — it’s in direct objection to God. In — in direct objection to the Judeo-Christian values that were at the foundation of this country and those Christian values are why we made so much progress in terms of freedom and humanity and the way we treat everybody,” he said.
“Yes, it was hard, but our Christian values compelled us to sacrifice our lives for the freedoms of other Americans, of slaves. And — and through the Civil Rights Movement, our Christian values compelled us to take risks and fight for equality and the equality of opportunity for everybody,” he continued, unintentionally acknowledging that the left’s focus on civil rights is “Christian values.”
“I just — I see a lot of what’s going on here is — I’m just sorry, I’m a man of faith, I was raised in the church, this stuff is satanic. That’s what’s at the foundation of a lot of this stuff.”
“Well, I’m a pretty mild protestant, personally, but I completely agree with you, especially the gender stuff,” Carlson responded, despite Whitlock not mentioning gender at all. “When you say you can change your own gender by wishing it, you’re saying you’re God, and that is satanic, I completely agree.”
