According to his Ted Cruz-penned Twitter bio, Mark Steyn is an “International bestselling author, Top Five jazz recording artist, & a leading Canadian human rights activist.” (He also recorded—I kid you not—a moody, introspective cover of Mel Blanc’s classic “I Taut I Taw a Puddy Tat.”) But based on his Thursday night appearance on Tucker Carlson’s show, he’s just a generic white nationalist in a suit. Which means that he fit right in.
The two were discussing a recent segment on CNN about undocumented youth when they decided to really lean in to their white supremacy.
“Chris Cuomo [said] that the real problem is white supremacists in America,” Steyn told Carlson. “They are the real monsters. Not these nice hard working illegal immigrants. That may be well and true.”
“For the purposes of argument let’s say he is right,” Steyn continued. (Just “for the purposes of argument?” OK then.) “It’s irrelevant. The white supremacists are American citizens. The illegal immigrants are people who shouldn’t be here.”
Later in the broadcast, Steyn said this: “In Arizona, a majority of the grade school children now are Hispanic. That means Arizona’s future is as a Hispanic society. That means in effect, the border has moved north.”
Fox News liked that one so much it tweeted it. A nice reminder that it’s basically just a white supremacist propaganda network now.
