news primetime." this week i'm tammy bruce, can you find out more about thee on the new social media platform tammy bruce dot locals.com. i will see you again tomorrow night and all week 7:00 p.m. tucker is next. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> good evening and welcome to a live special edition of "tucker carlson tonight." i am mark steyn in the for tucker who is taking a quiet fishing weekend, but he will be dropping by momentarily. china is a number one global power. what happened to america? sometimes you get dealt some tough geopolitical cards as britain, france, spain, portugal
could surely all tell us but sometimes, you just do it to yourself. this is one of those stories that would've been rather dull satire a decade ago but now it is standard operating procedure. from a group called dallas justice now, an open letter to wealthy white liberals. "to our white allies, talk is not enough, commit yourself towards taking action and making sacrifices to correct centuries of injustice, open up spaces for black and latin communities by refusing to send your kids to ivy league and "u.s. news & world report" top 50 schools and encourage friends, neighbors, and family members to do the same. imagine if those hundreds of thousands of spots of these institutions were occupied only by look marginalized communities. imagine the opportunities. we can achieve true equity within our lifetimes but only if white folks are willing to
sacrifice their privileges." yes, indeed it's not enough for you nice white allies just to listen to npr and giggle at how stupid all the white male differences are in commercials nowadays and admire how that splendid u.s. ladies soccer team is so committed to getting the taking the new stuff just like that they've given up all scoring. these are mere gestures. they cost you nothing. but are used efficiently all into ticket it to the next level of child sacrifice? at least as far as education is concerned. here's how the pledge goes. as a white person with privilege, both from my whiteness and my neighborhood, i realize the idea of making sacrifices to correct hundreds of years of murder, slavery, discrimination, and lack of educational and economic opportunities perpetrated among people of color. i understand that access to top schools is a key component in economic and social advancement,
therefore i commend let my children will not apply to or attend any ivy league school or u.s. news and world top 50 school so that position is available for people of color to help correct historical wrongs. don't be a racist hypocrite, sign the pledge today. and just in case you were thinking of tossing it on the pile with the supermarket coupons and the publishers clearing house you may have already won postcards, dallas justice at this morning. "but dallas just as now will be publicly announcing the names of those who have and have not signed the pledge." so if you white liberal allies can point to your tax-deductible donation to the el paso festival of aspiring rappers isn't going to cut it anymore. it the overworked family from texas tried that with their cute middle school or who never missed an opportunity to excoriate himself.
>> as a white man who has had privileges that others could not depend on or take for granted, i've clearly had advantages over the course of my life. >> the way in which i acknowledge the truth and the criticism that i have been joined by privilege absolutely undeniable. >> you are right, there are things i have been privileged to do in my life that others cannot. >> not because i'm a great person or a genius, a lot of it has to do with the fact that i am a white man. >> mark: okay, so did you give up your place at columbia university currently third in the nation and let the family pool boy go instead? no. he majored in skateboarding with a minor in air guitar and wrote his masters thesis on socio-racial self-flagellation as identity politics. you were a person of color, you might eventually suspect that
his constant confessions of his privilege or simply an easy way for him to maintain it. in the 19 century, they made the big bucks by being a black faced minstrels. in the 20th century, they made big bucks by doing safe cover versions of black music and now in the 21st century, white guys in this case a white guy who was lighter than any white guy you have seen since "leave it to beaver," these white guys make the big bucks by telling all the other whites be less bite. professor sam williams of the wretched penn state university hosts an utterly worthless class. >> to be less whiteness to be less certain, defensive, ignorant, be more humble, listen, believe, break with party and break with solidarity. >> it's more or less just
recognizing what you have in life whatever that may be and not thinking yourself superior because of that. >> what way with people find that offensive? >> conservatives, i guess. >> what's the point of what it's trying to say? >> i don't want to get canceled so i'm trying to be careful with what i say. >> who have you guys a press most today? >> i have an oppressed anyone today. >> are you sure of that? you are breathing. have you left your house today? >> yes. >> okay, so you may have oppressed somebody. >> mark: you may have oppressed somebody just by breathing. what a great country. america is the only place on earth where whites can become multi-gazillion errors by declaring that all other rights are [bleep] holes. >> what if you could just give
us feedback on our inevitable and often unaware racist assumptions and behaviors and i'll never forget this black man raising his hand and saying it would be revolutionary. you just take that end, i just want all the right people to take that income i revolutionary that we would receive the feedback with grace, reflect and think to change our behavior. that's how difficult we are. that's how big of a holes we are. >> mark: white liberals, don't forget to preorder the forthcoming book while you're you're a pathetic racist [bleep] hole and buying this book isn't going to change that so dallas justice now has correctly if very belatedly grasped that the white liberals tedious pantomime of fake civilizational disavowal and pseudo-self-loathing is in getting them anywhere and they are demanding that they actually
forswear columbia university and its fellow texas liberals do likewise. this is win-win, your kid will learn just as much at dead buzzard junction community college except for the basket weaving and puppetry which is harder than it looks at least when compared to transgender and colonialism studies but dallas justice now is not going far enough. they should be publicly falling to give away their blood-soaked endowments to historically black colleges, ship it straight to africa, give it to the school of public integrity. courtesy of the official government statistics 2019 paid 50 grand a year for the occasional zoom call, so who knows how the 2020 stats will shake out the just for the record, the percentage of 18 to
24-year-olds enrolled in college by race, whites 41%, black 37%. that would be margin of error territory we were discussing whether mitt romney or liz cheney was ahead in the latest iowa. asians are on top at 62% but unless you are a white fifth-grader getting his kicked in the county math league competition, you can't mention that. in second place that 47%, persons of two or more races so this might want to call for the reintroduction of what's that word that democrats say? and in third place, by the way, at 43% of pacific islanders because we all know that wherever you turn in american life, all the guys running everything, ceos, university presidents, studio heads are all
samoan. social justice warriors instead of complaining about microaggressions should be complaining about micronesian aggressions. that's it back in the real world but in the real, real world, education is and supposed to be about everything already successively high levels to nuclear strength but about boring stuff like arithmetic, literature, physics. how are we doing there? in math, china is number one. there's a surprise, china number one and america -- let me see here. estonia, slovenia, slovakia, can you scroll down a bit? here we are, number 37, the united states just ahead of basket case belarus. white liberals in dallas should just agree to send their kids to schools in belarus. same results but a lot cheaper even with the cost of the plane tickets. to go back to those, 43% of
pacific islanders, 37% of blacks are in college. those numbers are all way too high because most of those students are not learning anything worth knowing of staying in school until grade 38 is a waste of life. each year, china graduates getting close to ten times more stem students than america does because stem is difficult and giving classics at princeton where you know longer need to know that in their greek or english at yale where you know longer need to know shakespeare isn't difficult at all. chinese educators think math is important, american educators think math is racist. it is not hard to see where this ends. we are always delighted to have candace owens, the host of candidates on our airwaves and she joins us now. what do you make of this move to sacrifice your children's education?
>> is just becoming increasingly more bizarre. the self-flagellation that goes on in these communities and pretty much sums up beto o'rourke who seems to be a political masochist, when you talk about what they're actually calling for, it's interesting because you could define this as bigotry of low expectations saying black americans aren't smart enough to get into these goals by their own merit, so there's that going on but here's what's worse, is the bigotry of no expectations and reality because we already have affirmative action. they are already more likely to give a spot in a school to a black american who is grades that are lower than white americans. they are saying that's not even enough, right? of course, according to the obvious is that they never think through any of their policies long term because it no sense. what it says is make sure these white people cannot go into any ivy league schools. you are saying now you just want to make sure everybody there has brown skin and you know fully
well that asian-americans are making at the top of their classes and it's not white americans, than what you are really saying is you're just going to reverse and change around, they will have smarter kids and then places like harvard and columbia are not going to have the brightest kids. this doesn't even make sense long-term, it is just such foolishness in and you are right to point out the fact that as we are focused on this vocal learning, the countries are looking to take us over in the east are advancing, not focused on this type of academic learning or nonacademic learning is what i should say. >> mark: absolutely. i'm not sure there's a delicate way to put we are told incessantly america is the most racist place on earth, historically racist, racist for centuries, will take half a millennium to get it out of the system and with the news stories the southern border,
there are people from majority black countries all trying to flee, all trying to break into the most racist nation on earth, what's the deal with that? >> seems increasingly bizarre and i will give them credit. was liberals and progressives at the helm of it is certainly becoming an increasingly more systematically racist country and that's what they want, that's exactly what this open letter is demanding, we want people to focus on skin color and make sure they want every action in this country to be informed by the color of people skin. look at what you just showed, that montage of him talking about his white privilege. let's racist. you were saying to me you are a black girl so you don't understand, i am better than you in this society. that's the very definition of racism and that's exactly what it is, not even a close cousin to racism, it is racism by a
different name. >> mark: that is very well put and you are right, the element of racial condescension when beto o'rourke says that to you. do you know the name of the show? it is tonight, so where is tucker carlson? i'll tell you where he is, going to be here in just a few moments, that's up next. it
and there you have it - wireless on the fastest, most reliable network. wow! big deal! we get unlimited for just $30 bucks. i get that too and mine has 5g included. impressive. impressive is saving four hundred bucks a year. four bucks? that's tough to beat. relax people, my wireless is crushing it. okay, that's because you all have xfinity mobile. it's wireless so good, it keeps one upping itself.
next.>> mark: welcome back to a live special edition of "tucker carlson tonight." former u.s. senator barbara boxer was robbed in broad daylight earlier today in oakland, california. she was in a neighborhood called jack london square named after the famous author. it is on the city's waterfront. when her attacker pushed her in the back, stole her telephone, and escaped in a waiting car. thankfully, the former senator was not seriously injured. i wnd strom thurmond at the clinton impeachment trial but it is worth noting that just a few weeks ago, the city of oakland voted to defund the police and strip more than $17 million from
the police budget. crime is up because of it and that is going to affect a lot of people in oakland up to and including the united states senators. douglas murray is an author, a public intellectual, one of the smartest people we know from a one the bravest people that i know and i've known him a long time and is also the first ever guest to appear on tucker carlson today. we've seen so much good feedback and fan mail about that interview that tucker recently sat down with him again for a brand-new episode. listen to this. >> what i saw was something that i think a lot of people have never seen before which is i like the civilization i came from. i loved it, i wanted to continue. i thought it had all sorts of
wonderful, nurturing the things that i wanted other people to have access to as well. i didn't want to tear down my society, i wanted to keep it up and that is the conservative instinct. then i realized i had it even has a lot of my contemporaries many of whom were firm far more privileged backgrounds that myself thought they should tear down their society and radically alter it and iealization that tn unusual position i held, but it was correct. >> it sounds like you were acting out of instinct. >> you get it at certain points of your life where some great influence friend of mine described to me that his realization came in paris in 1968 when he saw these middle-class students throwing
bricks that working-class policeman and realized that he wanted paris, like london to continue. he didn't want to tear it down and i had a similar, more dramatic realization of a similar instinct in my adolescence i suppose. i didn't want to destroy the society. i thought it could be improved, but i had to continue. i didn't think that the other things on offer were better. i didn't think the dreams of the radical left sounded good to me. i didn't like -- these are instinct things as you know, but i didn't like the idea of everyone being the same. i just thought it was a boring view of society. i didn't want us all to live in the same houses are same the gardens. >> before i knew it, i didn't want everyone to have the same views and have to be the same books and like the same things. i thought that different was a
wonderful thing and that didn't mean that unfairness wouldn't exist or should be celebrated, but yes, i didn't like the offer that the left was holding out to me as a very instinctive level, so i accidentally became a conservative. >> i think you have unusual clarity. you can see things very clearly as they happen and that's obviously the first step to improving things and you also have a balanced life in the middle of this maelstrom. >> we have to balance our lives, don't we? we all know people who've gone mad in recent years. some people quite close to us and it's because we have lost perspective. we have lost perspective on what matters, lost perspective on how to view things in the correct perspective to look at life and we have lost a lot and we have to regain it.
i don't think things lost are impossible to regain. we live in this era where we imagine that we can know anything because we can google it. but we lost wisdom, we have lost knowledge and experience, perspective and we have to find a way to get back to that. i think one way back to it is to admire it and to seek to get it back. to admire people who many think we don't know, that seems to be completely lost in our era, everybody thinks they know everything. and can lecture everyone else because of that. >> are you surprised by the ignorance on this? >> american ignorance is a relic. it >> american ignorance is her relic. >> i have spent all my life is an admirer of america, great friends and from the moment i first came to this country, i loved and admired it but my god, it's gone wrong.
now when the stage where my own country of birth great britain are actually happy to try to cut ourselves off from american influence and that's how bad america has become. the french as you know, the french have tried to cut themselves off from that. the president of france i did recently say we can't have these american imports of ideas. the french academy, french academics are saying we can't allow this american imports in. what is the import? it is stupidity. it is evangelical stupidity. >> i don't know why i'm laughing, it's so awful, but it's true. >> it'serrible and i hope your viewers understand i am saying this as a friend and admirer and i don't say it because i hate america. i say because i love america and i wish i could do better. i just fear this ignorance and
this lack of desire to get perspective on things and to have humility, intellectual humility. all i hear is these awful products of the american academy berating everyone else about things and knowing so little and it is worrying. how american culture is currently ripping through the rest of the world and i don't think it works in america and it certainly doesn't work elsewhere. >> mark: i don't know, foreigners telling you what's wrong with their country, what's up with that? just kidding. that conversation went on for about an hour and you can see it on the brand-new episode of tucker carlson today at foxnation.com. we told you all about hunter biden's art on friday show and
painting. now he is outselling picasso, but who is helping? foxes matt finn is on the case. what's up, matt? >> the art dealer representing hunter biden has long-standing ties to china and that could pose a problem for the president's son who is venturing into the art world. buyers with connections to the chinese communist party could attempt to buy influence in the biden administration by purchasing hunter biden's art. currently representing hunter biden and has talked about his business dealings with china in the past and in an interview told resident magazine "my plan is to be the lead guy, lead collector and art dealer discovering talent from that region. hunter biden's art sales will be
kept confidential. it also previously said that he travels to china three or four times a year and has a solid group of overseas collectors. everything is changing did not return fox news' request for comments come up with the white house also did not give a comment to fox news. >> mark: so hunters dealer is have big art dealer in china. there is a surprise. thank you for that. it wasn't long ago that the democrat party fled to washington, d.c. and didn't bring everything with them now these brave pilgrims are requesting care packages of
the dallas democrat revolutionist wrote this before 5:00 p.m. hair spray, hand sanitizers, sewing kits, first aid and all money to pay shipping. because apparently they don't have dr pepper and toilet paper in the national capital. i can well believe that. clay travis hosts the clay travis and buck sexton show on hundreds of stations around the country and he joins us now. clay, have you prepared your care package for these? >> you know what? i think it would be fantastic if republicans sent a lot of care packages and may be included in that the constitution of the united states has a nice parting
gift. i went to college in washington, d.c., best i remember is pretty easy to walk outside, a cvs on every corner. the idea that these taxpayer-funded politicians would be also requesting for taxpayers to provide them free gear and vintage democrats in 2021 and it reminds me a little bit, had a couple of kids going away to sleep away camp here during the summer and we sent them care packages. i didn't think the democrats would have the same list of demands as my 10-year-olds, but go figure, they have the exact same requests and they are just as pathetic as he would imagine for grown adults asking for handouts but it perfectly fits the modern-day democratic party. >> mark: did you file your 10-year-old to summer camp on a private plane? there were some people who fly on private planes and some people but they are not usually the same group of people.
>> they don't overlap a lot and no, we drove him to his summer camp and dropped off the care package when we dropped him off and he thought it was pretty cool to get a care package come i'm sure lots of parents and grandparents who have done that for their kids but if you start requesting a care package and you are an elected official and a politician, it is a pretty big indictment of your decision-making and as you pointed out, a private plane and the fact that they could return home at any point in time, all of this is just conspiring to make the texas democrats look even more ridiculous than they already did and i didn't think that was possible. >> mark: people always say when republicans do think this is going to be a super-spreader event, totally irresponsible, grossly irresponsible. actually, this texas democrats seem to be the most compressed
super-spreader event in the country. is this strategy working for them? >> no, not only are they super spreading covid, they are super spreading stupidity and that is a bad combination to be bringing both to our nation's capital were certainly stupidity is super spreading throughout the democratic caucus for very long time ever since they got woke and started to go broke on my ideas. >> mark: nobody needs more stupidity in washington. clay travis, thank you very much. a more illegal migrants are streaming across the southern border than ever before. we have some shocking new video that shows exactly who these guys are and where they are coming from. that straight ahead on this special live edition of "tucker carlson tonight."

projects that of more than 1.8 million illegal immigrants will stream across the southern border this year. that would make this the worst year in recorded history of the united you live in a small state, that's the equivalent of three vermont or wyoming coming across the border so who are all these migrants? at the border and he just shot this footage of some of those coming in through del rio, texas. >> sunday morning in del rio, texas, a large line of single adult men, mostly haitian are walk through the border fence by border patrol and taken into custody. they are part of a massive group of more than 350 that showed up here. one of the biggest groups we have ever seen. the migrants coming from all around the world, mostly haitian, some cubans and
brazilians, even some from africa. exclusive video to fox news shows the groups of migrants as they cross the rio grande early this morning from mexico, they wait hours to be picked up by an overwhelmed and overstretched border patrol. all of them eventually loaded into border patrol buses and vans and taken away to processing centers. for federal agents, this is repeated over and over every day with no end in sight. >> mark: victor davis hanson is a senior fellow at the hoover institution. victor, open borders in a pandemic, why is the government doing this to the american people? >> i don't know, it seems like it's bizarre. it's almost like we are providing the shuttle service from an airport or something in the first thing they've done is break our law and the second thing will be residing breaking
our lawn it's beyond the politics of the democratic effort to change the american southwest demography. it's so nihilistic and full of anarchy and chaos in its sheer madness. as you say, telling people we are going to go door-to-door to ensure you are vaccinated dr. fauci saying you have to have a mask indoors and we are welcoming 2 million almost people who apparently are not going to ask if they are vaccinated or if they've been tested. it doesn't make any sense. then we are talking about refugees but most of them are economic refugees, not political. and yet we do have real political refugees 90 miles away who are victims of political persecution and we are told that nobody from cuba can come in if you dare come, we will turn you away. we have coasts patrolled by the coast guard, a northern border but why this? it doesn't make any sense. this is a top-down phenomenon,
the media and politics and the minority community, delete the nobody community, it is not a grassroots phenomenon. people are not saying please open the border and we know that they are never going to be subject to the consequences of their own ideology. they will be dispersed over communities in the united states but they won't go to malibu for nancy pelosi's napa area or the vacant dorm rooms they could at stanford or yale or harvard over the summer, not in the upper west side and finally, the president of the united states takes an oath to faithfully execute the law of the united states as a studious president and we impeached a president for a phone call and under that low bar, what do we do with a president who says to the american people i am not going to enforce the law that i took an oath to faithfully execute, it doesn't make any sense. it's madness.
>> mark: that is an absolutely excellent point about the impeachment possibilities here which i wouldn't be in favor of except that i think when you dissolve the southern border in a sense, you also dissolve american citizenship and national sovereignty so perhaps we should think about that. victor davis hanson as always my plenty to think about there. thank you very much for joining us tonight. there are new indications from the men around joe biden that millions of americans could soon lose their right to eat dinner at a restaurant or board an airplane. that's next on "tucker carlson tonight."
california governor gavin newsom quickly followed suit with a mandate for his state employees. what's interesting is just a few months ago, joe biden about there would never be any vaccine mandates. joe biden covid vaccination in u.s. will not be mandatory red wine december headline on the bbc. now that's all changed, more than 2.5 million workers in california who could be affected by this mandate and what of the 2 million federal government employees nationally? all of them could soon be forced to take a vaccine that has only been approved for emergency use. it's not hard to see where this is going. of france's national assembly just approved a law today mandating that everyone who will need special vaccine health pass or else they can't go to restaurants for use public transit don't even go up the eiffel tower. meanwhile, italy's government
has just announced the so-called green pass with the same restrictions and in australia were very few people have been vaccinated, the government has nevertheless announced that vaccine passports will be instituted by october. most people are not happy about this. nearly 200,000 people marched against these vaccine passports and the france, italy, and australia over recent days, but the people in charge don't care. covid has made a lot of delete government officials very powerful when it's clear after a year and a half that they are in no hurry to give up that power. there are new reports that china is building more facilities similar to the wuhan institute of virology where the covid-19 almost certainly originated.
the author of the politically incorrect guide to pandemics, which will be coming out next march i think and you were going to need that because we are never going to be out of these pandemics. stephen, what's up with this? the wuhan institute did such a job that the chinese would like to have had more of them now to reach the two or three countries they didn't manage to afflict with the wuhan thing. >> are more worried about the building in china than i am about china's nuclear weapons because obviously this is a bio weapon like the one that was released on the world. it has plausible deniability. you can only say it came from nature. we know that china has been lying from the beginning. they told all these silly stories about coming from something called a raccoon dog and then they are telling the story now that it came from the
u.s. army's bio weapons laboratory in maryland then how did they get to china? they say that the u.s. army athlete soldiers came over during the world military games in october of 2019 and secretly spread it throughout the chinese population, they called it in china the american virus and you know from studying leftist propaganda techniques over the years that the leftists always accuse you of doing precisely what they are doing. we've got a lot of circumstantial evidence, we parted from the beginning about the lab my we've got some smoking guns now. >> mark: that's interesting, we are not allowed to call it the china virus but they are allowed to call it the american virus. what a fantastic world we live in. are you entirely convinced these highly convenient variance that pop up now every couple of
weeks, the delta variant, epsilon variant coming soon i expect. are you entirely convinced the chinese don't have a hand in some of these mutations? >> no, i think smoking guns are abundant now. we have a smoking gun in the original coronavirus, we know there was an unusual insertion of what is called a codon and what that does is it enhances the lethality, the dangerousness of a coronavirus. it is not found in any coronavirus in nature. talking about the new era of bio weapons and talk specifically about taking a coronavirus and engineering it to making it lethal to human beings, weaponizing it and then releasing it on the world.
does all that sound very familiar? it sounds familiar to me. >> mark: it certainly does, stephen. thank you for bringing us up to speed on that. you like the institute of virology, they are building a another three of them. don't forget about the new episode of tucker carlson today right now on foxnation.com with douglas murray. the man himself tucker will be back tomorrow at 8:00 p.m. eastern. have a great evening. sean hannity right now. >> sean: thank you and welcome to hannity and tonight, more baseless lies from democrats who continue to insist that voter i.d. laws in georgia and texas are racist but somehow not racist and biden's home state with restrictive laws in delaware. plus, more shocking footage from new york as crime spirals even more out of control, new video showing a violent mob attacking an
