Southern Poverty Law Center Publishes Complete List of Confederate Symbols in US
Tucker Carlson reported that the Southern Poverty Law Center published a comprehensive list of Confederate symbols in the United States.
Those symbols include statues, parks and even schools.
Carlson and journalist Tyler O'Neil discussed how the SPLC has gone from a legitimate organization to one that "defames organizations with which they disagree."
Tony Perkins' Family Research Council, an Evangelical organization was listed by them as a "hate group," and anti-extremism activist Maajid Nawaz has also been targeted.
The SPLC said the 1500 places stand "with the potential to unleash more turmoil and bloodshed" like that in Charlottesville, Va.
Carlson said that no student of the schools named after Confederate figures "deserves to have to go to school... when there's a violent outbreak of protests [there]."
Carlson also played tape of several recent acts of vandalism against such symbols, like a Confederate statue in North Carolina and a Christopher Columbus bust in Yonkers, N.Y.
In the latter case, Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino (R) said the defacing of statues like the one in Yonkers is "out of control and must come to an end."
"The persons responsible... will face serious legal action for their crimes," the White Plains, N.Y. legislator said.
