Fox News host Tucker Carlson wondered aloud Thursday why anyone would care what Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) thinks about anything and worried what it means that she has such a prominent voice on the national stage.
Tucker Carlson made remarks that questioned why anyone cares about what Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks, according to The Daily Wire.
Carlson gave a response to AOC’s recent statements regarding immigrants that were separated should receive reparations.
“It’s just interesting to come to a place where a low-IQ race-baiter like that has an important voice in national policy.” Carlson continued, “Like, who cares what she thinks?”
Carlson described AOC as being an open “racist” and “totally reckless.”
Carlson said the key to thinking clearly in regards to the border crisis is this, “What’s best for the United States?”
“Obviously the border policy now is a disaster,” he said.
“To be fair, it’s been a disaster for a long time. It doesn’t serve the interest of most Americans.”
“And it won’t because people that use the magic word, which is ‘racism,’ to cow the rest of the country into submission.”
“She wants to change the population, she wants her party to be more powerful, I get it.”
“But we’re allowing her and people like her to do that because we’re afraid of being called names.”
“Until decent people shed their fear of being smeared by someone whose opinion you really shouldn’t care about, we’re never going to have a rational immigration policy that helps everybody,” said Carlson.
“I don’t care what whatever that woman’s name is thinks,” Carlson concluded. “And no one should care what she thinks.”
“Who cares what she thinks?! … I don’t care whatever that woman’s name thinks,” Tucker Carlson says about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a woman he has obsessively covered for 2+ years during a minute-long rant specifically aimed at AOC. pic.twitter.com/xwRI52L36u

From The Daily Wire:
Ocasio-Cortez recently opined on the border crisis, claiming it is racist to use the word “surge” to describe the surge of illegal immigrants flooding the border since President Joe Biden’s inauguration. As The Daily Wire reported:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) asserted that referring to the immigration crisis as a “surge” is rooted in white supremacist philosophy.
Ocasio-Cortez commented on the ongoing crisis at the border Tuesday on Instagram. Ocasio-Cortez came under public pressure in recent days to sound off on the issue under the Biden administration after being an outspoken critic of former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.
The New York Democrat avoided explicitly blaming the Biden administration for the crisis, instead asserting that climate change, imperialism, and trade created it.
“People don’t want to have that conversation,” she said, referring to the issues she raised. She went on to claim anyone who refers to a “surge” of illegal migrants is trying to distract from other issues and is using white supremacist talking points.
