First they attacked Black Lives Matter, and you didn’t speak out – because you are not black.
Then they attacked Muslims, and you didn’t speak out – because you are not Muslim.
Then they attacked immigrants of color, and you didn’t speak out – because you are not an immigrant of color.
Then they attacked journalists and you spoke out – but it was too late, and no one listened.
Tucker Carlson expresses concerns about “white genocide”. He claims that immigration causes a reduction in “the attractiveness of men as potential spouses thus reducing fertility and especially marriage rates.” His guest, Mark Steyn, says that “white supremacists are American citizens. The illegal immigrants are people who shouldn’t be here.”
Laura Ingraham claims that immigrants are “invading the country.” That “we're dealing with a total breakdown in the values of this country that I grew up in, and it's just disgusting.”
They’re not alone. Other FOX commentators have warned of a “demographic replacement,” that immigration will “change this country forever.” The word “invasion” is a term used again and again.
According to the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), a hate group's "primary purpose is to promote animosity, hostility, and malice against persons belonging to a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or ethnicity/national origin which differs from that of the members of the organization."
There is no doubt that the examples above fit the FBIs description of hate speech. Their vitriol has done more to encourage White Separatists than all the hundreds of designated hate groups combined. It’s about time FOX was publicly called out for its fearmongering and recognized for what it is – America’s largest and most influential hate organization.
