Tucker Carlson’s opening commentary on the January 27, 2022, edition of ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight:’

TUCKER CARLSON: So here’s a weird story – so many of those these days – if you were anywhere near the Supreme Court in Washington this past spring, you may have seen a black box truck with New Jersey plates and a billboard on the side parked by the side of the road. The message read “Breyer, Retire. It’s time for a Black woman Supreme Court justice. There’s no time to waste.” Those billboards were funded by a group of progressive Democrats called Demand Justice, which weirdly enough is run by an extremely White guy called Brian Fallon, which is a little strange if you think about it.

If Brian Fallon is so passionate about giving leadership roles to Black women, why hasn’t he resigned from his job and given it to one? You wonder that about a lot of people. Joe Biden, for example.

In any case, you’ve got to hand it to Brian Fallon. Either he is remarkably prescient or someone in power was listening to him, because just this morning was announced that Stephen Breyer is indeed retiring from the Supreme Court.

And you notice the passive construction there. It was announced. Because Breyer himself did not announce his retirement. It’s not even clear Breyer knew the announcement was going to happen. Someone leaked that news with or without Justice Breyer’s consent. They didn’t wait for him to do it himself. Why? Well, because Democrats understand they’re likely to lose the Congress this November. They want to control Breyer’s seat while they still can. So what are they going to do with that seat? We don’t need to guess. Joe Biden was very clear about his plans nearly two years ago as he was running for president. He didn’t tell us what he was going to do about COVID or foreign policy or the economy, but he was very precise about the Supreme Court.

Here’s Biden in March 2020 on the debate stage of CNN:

JOE BIDEN: I committed that if I’m elected president and have an opportunity to appoint someone to the courts will be I’ll appoint the first Black woman to the courts. If my cabinet, my administration will look like the country and I commit that, I will in fact appoint a, I’ll pick a woman to be vice president.

I will appoint a Black woman to the Supreme Court. That was Biden’s promise. All right. But which Black woman exactly? Biden didn’t tell us. Biden didn’t mention the Supreme Court nominee’s legal qualifications or judicial philosophy or ability to perform one of the most important jobs in the country. He didn’t even tell us she was a nice person. All he said was she’s going to be Black and she’s going to be female, because to him, that’s all that mattered.

You almost got the impression that Joe Biden believes all Black women are the same. They’re identical. It was certainly the assumption in the Delaware of Joe Biden’s youth 60 years ago. Biden doesn’t seem to have changed much.

You wonder if anyone sitting there in CNN’s audience that night even noticed this. It’s possible we’ve all marinated for so long in the casual racism of affirmative action that it seems normal now to reduce human beings to their race. But imagine if this was happening to you. How would you feel? You go to law school, you win a clerkship, you get a seat on some lower court. One day you’re nominated to be one of the top nine judges in the country. And you’re proud of that. Why wouldn’t you? Your parents are proud. Your friends are proud.

But Joe Biden, all Joe Biden can talk about is your skin color. Patronizing doesn’t even begin to describe what this is. This is exactly why decent Americans hated segregation. It dehumanized people. Now, Biden claims that his race counting is essential so that the court and the rest of his administration “look like America.”

Of all the lies that Joe Biden tells, this could be the easiest to check. We have the latest census numbers, and we can promise you with dead certainty that Joe Biden’s nominees look nothing like America, not even close.

Is that a problem? Well, the problem for Biden is that once he starts saying things like this, once he begins to promise to represent every possible ethnic voting bloc equally, like some ward boss in 1950 Chicago, people are going to start to wonder about their representation. As long as we’re divvying up the spoils like carrot cake, where’s my slice?

So, Biden will nominate a Black woman. Great, she’ll represent about seven percent of the population. But where’s Biden’s Pacific Islander nominee? Mazie Hirono, is probably writing an outrageous letter about that right now. No doubt she is.

And why isn’t there an American Indian on the court or a genderqueer or someone from the chronic fatigue syndrome community or a justice with cognitive disabilities? Why isn’t there an Afghan refugee under consideration? You can laugh, but suddenly these are entirely fair questions, and by the way, Joe Biden, you claim that trans lives matter, really, do you really mean that? Then prove it? What kind of woman is this anyway you plan to nominate? What are her pronouns?

You can see where this is going, where it always goes. Identity politics always ends with tribal warfare. It’s funny the Biden people can’t see that maybe they can see it and don’t care, or maybe it’s the entire point of the exercise.

Whatever the explanation, the White House has no choice at this point but to make good on Joe Biden’s promise.
