Tucker Carlson Goes After Rep. Omar in Wild, 22-Minute Show Opener: She’s ‘Trying to Take This Show Off the Air’

After recounting Rep. Omar’s perilous journey to the United States as a Somali immigrant and how her family was successfully granted asylum, Carlson said: “Ilhan Omar has a lot to be grateful for, but she isn’t not at all. After everything America has done for Omar and her family, she hates this country more than ever.”

“Omar isn’t disappointed in America, she is enraged by it,” Carlson claimed of Omar. “Virtually every public statement she makes accuses America of bigotry and racism. This is an immoral racism. She has undisguised contempt for the United States and its people. Think about that for a minute. Our country rescued Ilhan Omar from the single poorest place on Earth. We didn’t do it for the money, we did it because we are kind. How did she respond to the remarkable gift we gave her? She scolded us, called us names, showered us with contempt. It’s infuriating.”

The Fox News host went to complain about her call for a boycott of his show’s advertisers.

“Ilhan Omar and her allies in Congress immediately demanded that they show be pulled off the air,” he said. “They didn’t rebut what we said, any of our points, or even acknowledge them. They just try to silence us. That is how they operate. Of course, they called us racist.”

Carlson later blamed the American left for indoctrinating Omar and teaching her the “hustle” of “crying racism.”

“The bigger question is, who taught her that?” Carlson said. “She didn’t arrive from a Kenyan refugee camp announcing people as bigots for a political campaign. She wasn’t always a professional victim. That is learned behavior. Importantly, she learned it here. In some ways, the real villain in the Ilhan Omar story isn’t Omar, it is a group of our fellow Americans. Our cultural gatekeepers who stoke the resentment of new arrivals and turn them into grievance mongers like Ilhan Omar. The left did that to her, and to us. Blame them first.”
