Brianna Wu is a video game developer, a feminist, and is running for Congress in Massachusetts as a democrat. She is also certifiably insane, having once accused Elon Musk of wanting to nuke the Earth with moon rocks. Seriously, she said this. Because she wants a seat in the US House of Representatives, she’s trying to tone down her insanity by calling Fox News “KKK TV.” While that may not seem all that bonkers, the reason why she thinks Fox is racist is because Tucker Carlson said that people are individuals, not racial groups.
Wu rage-tweeted this thing yesterday:
Apparently, the KKK have their own television station now.
Not even joking. I grew in Mississippi, this is word for word the “white people are the real victims” nonsense they spew. pic.twitter.com/Z31BGHA7jl

“Apparently, the KKK have their own television station now. Not even joking. I grew in Mississippi, this is word for word the “white people are the real victims” nonsense they spew,” wrote Wu.
Dude, she’s not even joking about this being the same thing that racists say in Mississippi. It’s actually more like something Martin Luther King Jr. said, but we’ll get to that in a second.
As you can see, Wu included a picture of Tucker Carlson from Fox News with graphics on the screen. This is the basis for her calling Fox the official station of the KKK, but maybe we should actually analyze the message Carlson is trying to convey.
First, there is “Hardworking people don’t need racist lectures.” What Carlson is saying is that the liberal media and coastal elitists try to portray hardworking people in middle America as dumb redneck racists who are too stupid to understand the progressive policies favored by the left. This is not racist, at least on the part of hardworking Americans. It is pretty racist that liberals naturally assume all white people are racist and that leads to the next one:
“Stop with the talk on ‘white privilege.’” This is the lefty accusation that all white people are racist because they are white. White privilege means that anyone who was born with white skin has an unfair advantage over all minorities and is therefore guilty of contributing to racism. It’s pure crap and the fact that Carlson wants the left to stop stereotyping an entire race doesn’t make him racist.
“Racial identity talk can backfire.” This one is easy. Anyone who uses race as basis for all things cannot complain about racism. If you’re making the issue about race, you are the racist.
Finally, Carlson says, “People are individuals, not racial groups.” Gee that sounds kind of familiar, doesn’t it? Its sort of like when MLK said that people should be, “judged not by the color of their skin, but the content of their character.”
So Brianna Wu is calling Fox News “KKK TV” because Tucker Carlson presented the same anti-racism idea as civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. That is actually almost as crazy as thinking Elon Musk is going to kill us all by throwing moon rocks at the Earth.
As a democrat from Mississippi, Wu should know damn well who owned the slaves, formed the KKK, and oppressed black people through segregation and Jim Crow. It sure as hell wasn’t conservative Republicans.
