MCNBC’s Nicole Wallace Attacks Tucker Carlson And Laura Ingraham For ‘Racist Fear Mongering’ On Afghan Refugees

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace, who previously worked for George W. Bush, attacked Fox News Channel hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham for what she described as their “racist fear mongering” about Afghan refugees.

Wallace Ties Fox To ‘White Nationalism’

“Some members of the right-wing media including some of the same people who downplay or outright defend the white nationalists and domestic violent extremists who attacked the Capitol January 6 are using this moment, right now to spread misinformation and engage in what can only be described as racist fear mongering,” Wallace said, according to Mediaite.

“Take a listen to what two of Fox’s most watched host had to say on this topic.”

Wallace then played a video in which Ingraham said, “Is it really our responsibility to welcome thousands of potentially unvetted refugees from Afghanistan? All day we’ve heard phrases like ‘we promise them.’ Who did? Did you?”

Carlson was then showed saying, “If history is any guide and it’s always a guide, we will see many refugees from Afghanistan resettle in our country in the coming months probably in your neighborhood and over the next decade that number may swell to the millions. First we invade and then we’re invaded.”

Wallace Attacks Fox News

Wallace chimed back in at that point to double down in her attack on the Fox News hosts.

“The opposite is true,” she said. “These are people that had to make a choice. So far away from here, so far away from the cozy climate-controlled studios at Fox News headquarters. In Afghanistan they had to choose between America and their country, and the Taliban, and they chose us, from all the way over there. The notion that their sort of horrific fear mongering and racism doesn’t carve out the men and women in Afghanistan who kept our soldiers alive for two decades is a new level of reprehensible.”

Boston Globe senior opinion writer Kimberly Atkins Stohr responded by saying “vilifying Afghans, vilifying anybody who is Muslim” is not new, recalling “xenophobia and anti-Muslim sentiment” in America after 9/11.
