Tucker Carlson Goes Into Xenophobe Mode As He Warns Of Migrant Arrivals

After Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis flew migrants from Texas to Martha's Vineyard, Carlson claimed migrants could "dramatically" reduce quality of life

Tucker Carlson cautioned that migrants could have caused a “decline” on the mostly white and largely elite Martha’s Vineyard after they were flown there from Texas by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) this week.

The Fox News host, who spent his Thursday show unspooling a racist rant claiming that the nearly 50 men, women and children taken to the Massachusetts island on false pretenses could have had a “goat barbecue” there, adding Friday that the migrants could generally cause the quality of life to fall wherever they settle.

Carlson remarked that Vineyard residents, who scrambled to welcome and care for the unexpected visitors, should thank DeSantis for the political antic and claimed if “government officials send you the blessed gift of diverse immigrants or refugees, you must accept.”

DeSantis took credit for the migrants’ arrival on Wednesday, and the migrants reported that a woman in Texas deceiving them into boarding a flight they thought was going to Boston.

The migrants were transported to a Cape Cod military base on Friday, where up to 125 Massachusetts National Guard members were ready to assist them, according to Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker (R).

Carlson said on his show, “It doesn’t matter how disruptive these new people are. It’s irrelevant how much they cost to support or how dramatically your quality of life may decline after they arrive.”

“It doesn’t matter if the crime rate spikes, if your daughter is afraid to go outside, if the schools become unusable, the hospitals fall apart,” Carlson said. “It doesn’t matter, you never complain. You take it like a man.”

Carlson also disparaged Martha’s Vineyard residents for serving cereal to the migrants.
