No matter how you attempt to soft pedal this, Tucker Carlson is in fact calling for violence against teachers and the LGBTQ community. Spurred on by lies put out by Libs of TikTok, Matt Walsh and others claiming that LGBTQ people and teachers are sexualizing children, Carlson is taking this madness deeper down a dark road. None of the things he or anyone else is claiming about children being sexualized is true. The narrative is an adrenalized version of Anita Bryant's 'Save the Children' nonsense. But the stakes are now higher because the chances of violence is more prevalent.
We've already seen bomb threats against children's hospitals, and far-right groups attacking drag shows. What else are we going to see when idiots like Carlson are openly demanding that people act outside the law. He's not saying the words per se, but his intent is definitely cleared. How many people are going to get hurt before someone gives a damn?
