Tucker Carlson warned viewers on Monday about the possibility of a “genocide” of white people in the United States — citing a Georgetown University professor who called for violence and death among white Americans.
Carlson began by criticizing ABC politics chief Matthew Dowd for a piece which took heat Monday for its overt call for white Christian men to step down from positions of power.
“Former Bush campaign strategist and ABC News political analyst, Matthew Dowd published an Op-Ed demanding that white male Christians vacate their positions of power for other people,” said Carlson. “He’s not doing that himself but he did not, notably, advocate for genocide.”
Carlson then accused Georgetown professor Christine Fair of doing just that and read a graphic and violent tweet from Fair directed at white men.
“Look at this course of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement,” said Fair, criticizing the recent coverage of Brett Kavanaugh. “All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps.”
“Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes,” she added.
Twitter suspended Fair from the platform — before reinstating her late Tuesday morning.

Carlson made his remarks during a larger discussion of what he said was the left’s “obsession” with race, noting that in his view there was clearly no racial angle to the Kavanaugh story.
“Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination and the controversy around it is many things, but one thing it’s not is a race story. There’e no racial angle whatsoever and no reasonable person could disagree with that,” he said. “But that has not prevented the left from using it to vilify people for their skin color.”
This was not the first time that Fair, who currently serves as a distinguished associate professor in the Security Studies Program at Georgetown University, has taken provocative stands.
In a piece for the Chicago Tribune last May, she bragged about harassing white nationalist Richard Spencer at the gym, saying that it was her obligation to prevent him from lifting in peace.
“We can refuse to treat this hateful, dangerous ideology as just another way of being, and fight it in every space we occupy,” she said. “I’ve made my choice. You need to make yours.”
Reps for Twitter declined to comment, Fair’s employer at Georgetown issued a statement condemning “uncivil and disrespectful discourse”
Georgetown urges members of our community to engage in robust, but respectful dialogue. While we protect speech and expression, we condemn uncivil and disrespectful discourse that is inconsistent with our values. The views of faculty members expressed in their private capacities are their own and not the views of the University. Our policy does not prohibit speech based on the person presenting ideas or the content of those ideas, even when those ideas may be difficult, controversial or objectionable. While faculty members may exercise freedom of speech, we expect their classrooms and interaction with students to be free of bias and geared toward thoughtful, respectful dialogue.
