Fox Fascist News’ Tucker Carlson Attacks Top U.S. General:

White Supremacist Inciter of Race War Lashes Out at Reference to “White Rage”



On June 24, and again on June 25, fascist Fox News’ hatchet man Tucker Carlson1 lashed out at General Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, essentially accusing him of contributing to a climate leading to a genocidal race war against white people. This is not just madness, it is deadly serious—given that Carlson’s core audience of white supremacists is itching to launch an actual genocidal race war against people of color and others and to put in place a fascist America.

What set Carlson off was that in testifying before Congress on June 23, Milley said military leaders should study Critical Race Theory2. And Milley said that “white rage … caused thousands of people to assault this building [the Capitol] and to try to overturn the Constitution of the United States of America.” Milley insisted that understanding both these phenomena was an essential part of the job of a top military commander. And Milley has recently publicly expressed concerns that discrimination against Black soldiers has the potential to undermine the strength of the U.S. military.

Carlson told Fox News’ white racist, armed-to-the-teeth core audience that Milley’s testimony legitimized views that were leading to genocide against white people. And that they needed to act “before it’s too late” to “save the country before we become Rwanda,” claiming—insanely—that any reference to white rage was comparable to the events that led to horrific actual genocide that resulted in the deaths of between half a million and a million people of a minority ethnicity in that African nation in 1994.3

Democrats, CNN, and others who represent the liberal section of the ruling class have cheered Milley—gushing over his record of military service. But there is no “good guy” in this clash between a fascist, white supremacist inciter of a genocidal race war on the one hand, and the top general in an army of wars of empire, occupation and crimes against humanity on the other. Milley’s “record of service” includes helping lead the U.S. invasion of Panama; the U.S. invasion of Haiti in 1991; and the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan and the Iraq War in 2003 that resulted in thousands of deaths, set off a sectarian bloodbath in Iraq, and threw gasoline on the flames of the toxic clash between western imperialism and Islamic fundamentalist Jihad.

Carlson’s attack on Milley (and Milley’s pushback) are salvos in the clash between irreconcilably divided sections of the rulers of the U.S. For more on how to understand these divisions and how to act in the interests of humanity, see A DECLARATION, A CALL TO GET ORGANIZED NOW FOR A REAL REVOLUTION from the revcoms, and NEW YEAR’S STATEMENT BY BOB AVAKIAN: A New Year, The Urgent Need For A Radically New World—For The Emancipation Of All Humanity.


1. The system we live under, the system of capitalism-imperialism destroys lives and crushes spirits. It is the source of endless horrors for the majority of people in this country and all around the world, and it is increasingly threatening the very existence of humanity. The military of this country is not carrying out an “honorable service”—and it is not some “bad ass” force that people should respect. It is doing the same thing around the world, on a massive scale, that the police are doing here: carrying out the cowardly killing and terrorizing of people in the service of the biggest oppressors in the world, the rulers of this country. And it is a major cause of the destruction of the environment.

It is a hard but basic truth: For the masses of people, and ultimately for humanity as a whole, there is no future, or no future worth living, under this system.

But there is a way to a world and a future that is worth living, and is worth fighting for right now: revolutiona real revolution, not playing around with a few changes that leave this system in place and in power, while benefitting only a small number. A revolution means a force of millions, drawn from many different parts of society and organized for an all-out fight to overthrow this system and replace it with a radically different and much better economic and political system, a socialist system, based on meeting the needs of the people and carrying forward the fight for a communist world where there will finally be an end, everywhere, to the exploitation, oppression, and destruction of the environment that is built into this system of capitalism-imperialism. Anything less than this revolution will completely fail to deal with the root of all the problems or lead to the actual solution.

2. Revolutions are not possible all the time, but are generally possible only in rare times and circumstances, especially in a powerful country like this. This is one of those rare times and circumstances. This system is in real trouble, caught up in crisis and conflicts for which it has no easy or lasting solutions. Throughout this country the workings of this system have given rise to deep divisions which cannot be resolved under this system. Society is being ripped apart. Those who rule are locked in a bitter fight among themselves, and they cannot hold things together in the way they have in the past. Although there are a lot of bad things connected with this and it could lead to something really terrible, it is also possible that we could wrench something really positive out of it—revolution, to put an end to this system and bring something much better into being.

We have seen the potential for revolution powerfully demonstrated just last summer when millions of people, of all races and genders, all over this country, and all around the world, rose up together against racist oppression and police murder. We have seen this potential in the mass outpourings of women, in countries all over the world, refusing to put up with being abused and degraded. This potential is also revealed in the deep distress being expressed, by scientists and millions of ordinary people, about the continually worsening climate crisis and the threat this poses to the future of humanity—a crisis this system cannot solve, but can only make worse. But, with all this, right now only a small number of us have recognized the need for this revolution and are acting to make it happen. So there is crucial work that must be done now to win people to understand the need for revolution and act to make it real—to turn the potential for revolution into a powerful movement and organized force for an actual revolution.

2. Critical Race Theory (CRT) is an academic framework that identifies the continuity and pervasiveness of white supremacy in U.S. history and society and connections between that and other forms of oppression but does not situate white supremacy in its foundation in this system of capitalism-imperialism and how that evolved in this country, and the need—and basis—for a revolution that can end all oppression. In defending studying CRT, Milley emphasized that he studies Marx, Lenin, and Mao (past leaders of the communist movement and communist revolutions) and obviously not because he agrees with them. For a scientific understanding of the relationship between white supremacy, the other outrages perpetrated by this system, and the solution, see RACIAL OPPRESSION CAN BE ENDED—BUT NOT UNDER THIS SYSTEM by Bob Avakian.

France, in pursuit of its own imperialist interests, was deeply involved in provoking and perpetuating the horrific genocide in Rwanda that led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of minority Tutsi people in that country.

Fox Fascist News’ Tucker Carlson claims referring to “white rage” is setting the stage for genocide against whites.
