Text Shows Carlson Promoting Holocaust Denier On White Nationalist Hub

Tucker Carlson

Fox News host Tucker Carlson shared the work of David Cole, a Holocaust denier who writes for a white nationalist hub that carries headlines like “The Trouble with Blacks” and “Our De Facto Antiwhite Apartheid.” Carlson’s reading list is the latest revelation in the recently released tranche of documents from the Fox News/Dominion lawsuit.

Dominion Voting Systems has been engaged in a legal battle against Fox News for its lies about the company’s role in the 2020 election. Numerous embarrassing texts have been released during the process, including Carlson’s admission that he hates former President Donald Trump “passionately.”

A buried text in one of the documents is from November 17, 2020, when Carlson shared a Taki’s Magazinecolumn published the same day with an unidentified person, who told Carlson that it was “a smart piece.”

Taki’s Magazine is an online publication founded by Taki Theodoracopulos, a notoriously racist columnist who has defended Nazis. The outlet is a hub for white nationalist writers including VDare.com founder Peter Brimelow, VDare writer John Derbyshire, and American Renaissance leader Jared Taylor. Its former managing editor is white supremacist and “Unite the Right” participant Richard Spencer.

The outlet also publishes Holocaust denier David Cole. The far-right commentator is best known for producing content claiming that Auschwitz wasn’t an extermination camp with gas chambers (it was) and questioning whether 6 million Jewish people died in the Holocaust. (Cole, who is Jewish, has claimed that he is not a Holocaust denier but says he continues to question Auschwitz and the Holocaust’s death toll.)

Taki’s Magazine is a cesspool of white nationalist content. Headlines on the site have included: “Blacks Behaving Badly in Memphis”; “America’s Black Male Problem”; “The Trouble with Blacks” (since deleted); “Our De Facto Antiwhite Apartheid”; and “None Dare Call it Replacement.”

Cole’s piece that Carlson shared in 2020 was similarly racist and argued that Republicans shouldn’t shy away from demonizing people from the “Third World.” Cole wrote that “voters (specifically the ones most open to voting GOP) notice who is committing the crimes in their city” and they “understand that the Third Worlding of America is bad.” He suggested that politicians should follow Trump’s 2016 messaging and argue: “Illegals are swarming the country; I see it. Third World nations are not sending their best; I see it. They’re committing crimes; I’m acknowledging it. And I’ll stem that flow.”

Carlson, of course, is himself a white nationalist and has defended white nationalist outlets with similar ideologies like VDare and Gab. He regularly uses his show to push white nationalist content -- to the delight of his fellow white nationalists.

Sucking Up: House Republicans Want To Give Trump A Gold Medal

Donald Trump

The first Congressional Gold Medal was struck in 1776 as a way of saying thanks to George Washington. Since then, the medal has been awarded just 184 times to hallowed figures including Mother Teresa, Rosa Parks, Nelson Mandela, and the Dalai Lama. Compared to the 647 civilian Presidential Medals of Freedom or the 3,517 military Medals of Honor, the Congressional Gold Medal is the rarest of the great honors awarded in America.

Rudy Giuliani

Rudy Giuliani's efforts to help Donald Trump overturn the 2020 presidential election results have resulted in both civil lawsuits and two criminal indictments for the former New York City mayor. Giuliani is among Trump's co-defendants in Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis' election interference case, and in late April, he was indicted by a grand jury in a separate election interference case being prosecuted by State Attorney General Kris Mayes, a Democrat, in Arizona.
