Tucker Carlson: Rep. Ilhan Omar Has "Contempt" For Americans, Blame The Left

Tucker Carlson reacts to Rep. Ilham Omar (D-MN) calling for an advertising boycott of FOX News for giving him "nightly platform to white supremacist rhetoric."

Carlson said immigrants don't come to America with an animus for the country and that someone taught her to hate America.

"Our country rescued Ilhan Omar from the single worst place on earth, we didn't do it to get rich, in fact it cost us money. We did it because we are kind people," Carlson said of the refugee Congresswoman. "How did Ilhan Omar respond to the remarkable gift we gave her? She scolded us and called us names. She showed us with contempt. It's infuriating but more than that, it's also ominous."

"Omar may be from another country but she learned young that crying racism pays. The bigger question is, who taught her that? 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," he said.

"In some ways, the real villain in the Ilhan Omar story isn't Omar, it is a group of our fellow Americans," the host said. "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."
