The Editors at TakiMag have precisely homed in on the “crime” committed by Tucker Carlson during his viral segment on diversity. He asked for evidence that it makes America stronger.

Tucker Carlson Questions Diversity
Anyone who understands what words mean realizes that diversity doesn’t signify strength; instead, it sows division.

The only positive thing that diversity has ever brought America is a wider selection of restaurants. Otherwise, it’s brought a gaping dark canyon of conflict and alienation.

Do you get along better with your neighbors or your co-workers if you can’t understand each other or share no common values? Please be honest as you answer this question. And if diversity is our strength, why is it okay for the rest of us to surrender to one of our central rights, freedom of speech, to just a handful of tech monopolies?
