Fox News host Tucker Carlson had a heated 10-minute interview on his show Monday night with Yvette Felarca, a middle school teacher and organizer for the violent, left-wing protest group By Any Means Necessary.

Felarca, who helped organize the violent protests at UC Berkeley two weeks ago over a scheduled speech by alt-right commentator Milo Yiannopoulos, was unapologetic for her desire to use violence and force to "shut down" people she believes are "fascists."

In fact, a television station in Sacramento videotaped Felarca assaulting a man at a neo-Nazi rally last year, leading her school district to place her on administrative leave for "personal matters."

The activist told Carlson that she believes so-called "fascists" need to be "shut down" because they incite and organize violence against "women, immigrants, black people and other minority groups," in addition to "espousing genocide."

"In all of his talks all over the country, what Yiannopoulos has done is whip up a whole lynch mob mentality where people who come to see him or his supporters not only agree with his views but also attack other people," she claimed.

"In Berkeley we made sure that didn't happen because we were able to shut him down," she added.

Felarca went on to allege that Yiannopoulos is funded by Breitbart News and chief White House strategist Steve Bannon to recruit young people at colleges to "carry out fascist attacks" on behalf of himself and President Donald Trump.

Noting that she's an organizer for an organization that uses violence to restrict the rights of others, Carlson pressed Felarca on what exactly should happen to "fascists" like Yiannopoulos.

"If you think that someone is espousing genocide, what should we do with them?" he asked. "Should that person be allowed to walk free? Should we put them in jail? Should we kill them? Should we exile them?"

Felarca responded with her most honest answer: "[Yiannopoulos] should not be allowed to speak in public to spread his racist and misogynistic and homophobic lies. No, he does not have the right to do that."

"When he's using his speech to whip up ... and spread lies about our humanity? No he doesn't have the right to do that," she explained.

Carlson continued to press Felarca over what she thinks should happen to "fascists" who "espouse genocide," but the teacher dodged the question. In the end, when Carlson reminded her that Americans have the First Amendment right of free speech, Felarca broke to an entirely separate topic to allege that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) had her First Amendment rights violated last week when the Senate voted to stop her from talking during debate over the confirmation of former Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions to be attorney general.
