Tucker Carlson on Thursday slammed a Portland State University professor who said ‘slavery is still here’, branding him a ‘low IQ vandal wrecking the school system’.
The Fox News host shared a clip of Ethan Johnson, who chairs the black studies department, in conversation with 1619 creator Nikole Hannah Jones.
In it, Johnson says: ‘One of the things that is really important, I think is, to not frame slavery as our legacy but as it’s still here.
‘It’s legacy suggests that it’s over and there’s some remnants of it moving forward. And I would suggest that, no, slavery is right here.
‘The idea of what a slave is, is still here. And we’re living that.’
After airing the clip Tucker hit back, telling viewers: ‘Ok, so the Civil War never happened. Turns out that your ancestors weren’t killed or maimed trying to end slavery. Abraham Lincoln never signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Slavery is still under way.
‘That’s the view of some guy who is literally claiming to be a college professor.
‘But he’s not alone, people like that are in charge of the schools now. Low IQ vandals wrecking what they did not build, from the very bottom to the very top.
‘They are everywhere.’
