Information about Tucker Carlson

Wiki source

In August 2018, Carlson ran a segment where he alleged that the South African government was targeting white farmers due to anti-white racism. In the segment, Carlson criticized "elites" who were purportedly concerned about racism "paying no attention" to the "racist government of South Africa. " Carlson said that "South African President Cyril Ramaphosa had 'changed the country's constitution to make it possible to steal land from people because they are the wrong skin color. ' He also said that the government had begun seizing land from people without compensation. " CBS News, The Associated Press, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal described Carlson's segment as false or misleading. [62][63] According to The New York Times, "Mr. Ramaphosa announced on Aug. 1 that the governing African National Congress (A. N. C. ) would move ahead with a proposal to change the country's Constitution and allow the expropriation of some land without compensation. . . Mr. Ramaphosa has said that speeding up [land reform] will bolster economic growth and agricultural production. More fundamentally, the government has argued, returning land to black South Africans would make the country [more] just. "
