Fox News' Tucker Carlson left former New York Times columnist Ben Smith stammering after the left-wing "smear merchant" tried to get Carlson to say he thinks "white people have some claim on America that people of other races don't."
BlazeTV's Dave Rubin played a video clip from the interview, which was part of a launch event for Smith's new media company Semafor, and couldn't help noting how quickly Carlson reduced his accuser to a "sweaty, smarmy mess."
"Tucker is the main pushback against all of these people, these people that have nothing," Dave stated. "That clown Ben Smith knows that Tucker Carlson is not a racist ... but it's all that they've got. All that they've got is, 'Oh, you somehow are stoking white outrage.' The funny thing about it is that they're the ones that are stoking white outrage all the time. They're the ones who are always talking about white privilege and how evil white people are and the patriarchy and all those things, and then they turn to the people who are saying, 'Hey, that's not true and we don't like identity politics,' and then they say to them ... 'you're the racist.'"
He added, "I think that this is what the left gets wrong about their political opposition and that's why they're losing," Dave said.
