“They are hated and despised.”
Tucker Carlson said true things on TV recently that triggered the far left. Carlson had the audacity to point out the left’s hierarchy of victimhood on college campuses.
He was talking to guest Scott Greer, author of the book “No Campus for White Men.” Carlson pointed to the case of Nicholas Christakis who left Yale after being verbally assaulted on campus by social justice warriors.
The folks at Media Matters are quite unhappy about it:
Tucker Carlson: On College Campuses “Everybody Gets A Safe Space Except White Men. They Are Hated And Despised”
TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): If you’ve been awake at any point in the last 50 years, you know that American colleges are basically pretty liberal. But in the past five years or so, campuses seem to have been hit by a fever they haven’t experienced since the 1960s. Instead of focusing on professional skills or the sweet treats of scholarship, millions of students and professors have made far left politics their only reason for being at school.
The result is this: everybody gets a safe space except white men. They are hated and despised. What is this about, exactly? Scott Greer is the author of a new book that considers it, it’s called No Campus For White Men, and he joins us in the studio. Scott, thanks for coming on.
SCOTT GREER: Thanks for having me on, Tucker.
CARLSON: So the hysteria level is rising, that’s not my imagination. I went to college at one point. It wasn’t like this.
CARLSON: There’s so many ironies in all this, I guess the first one you sort of noted, everyone in college is privileged by definition. They’re not working for a living. They’re learning, which was considered a privilege for like a thousand years.
Media Matters obviously still has no idea why Democrats keep losing.
The Daily Caller has more:
Carlson was acutely aware of the changing face of higher education in America. “In the last five years or so campuses seem to have been hit by a fever they haven’t experienced since the 1950s,” he said.
“Millions of students and professors have made far-left politics their only reason for being at school. The result is this: everybody gets a safe space expect for white men. They are hated and despised,” he continued, introducing Greer.
Greer lamented the state of campus politics today, pointing to a near complete takeover by the radical left. “Identity politics and victimhood culture have taken over higher education,” he explained. “More important in some ways is victimhood culture, where everyone competes to be the biggest victim.”
