Tucker Carlson basically plays the role of a "White Supremacist with an Attitude". Yelling down opposers with self righteousness that is often peppered (or filled) with lies and conspiracy as per standard Fox News "Real News" policy as a sort of white supremacists opinion channel;
Tucker Carlson is just the first in the white supremacist lineup of the night but, for some reason, the most obvious as one commentator pointed out....

Media Matters: Tucker Carlson is using his Fox News show to mainstream white nationalism
Ever since Tucker Carlson took over the reigns of the 8 p.m. slot in Fox News’ prime-time lineup with his show , he has been using the hour to mainstream white nationalism. Carlson, a belovedfigure of the white nationalist community, dedicates significant time to fearmonger about immigration,defend white nationalists, complain about racism against white people, or regularly provide a platform forbigots, all the while accusing "the left" of making everything about race. Watch:

Media Matters: Tucker Carlson: Europeans coming to America led to "freedom and happiness" and "far less human sacrifice and cannibalism" Carlson calls Alaska's bill changing Columbus Day to "Indigenous People's Day" an "attack on civilization"
TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Christopher Columbus has been ceremonially deported from the state of Alaska. Under a new bill signed by the Alaska governor Bill Walker. Columbus Day will henceforth be known as "Indigenous People's Day." Alaska joins California, Tennessee, and South Dakota in refusing to commemorate the discovery of the New World by Europeans. Why? Well it's an apology of sorts, obviously. The message is "it would have been better if Europeans had never come here at all." Well, that's not just absurd, it's literally an attack on civilization. Things are, in fact, better on this continent than they were 700 years ago in case democracy and penicillin and the internal combustion engine didn't make that obvious. The upstart nations of the new world, in particular this country, the U.S., played a key role in creating a better and freer world, while helping to liberate the old world from despotism, fascism and communism. There's more human freedom and happiness, far less human sacrifice and cannibalism. That's all an achievement, we ought to celebrate it, not mourn it, obviously.
Fascism definition: A form of government which is authoritarian, oppressively conservative, who believe in the supremacy of the stated national group, and which, at least initially, purports to vest law-making and administrative authority in the hands of workers or their organizations.
Media Matters: Fox's Tucker Carlson says he doesn't know what the term "white nationalist" even means (an obvious lie)
BRAD WOODHOUSE: Tucker what you want to focus on and every conservative commentator has focused on is the text of the speech and not the context of the people who are advising him, who are writing the speech, the people who have white nationalist -- TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): But this is insane! I don't even know what "white nationalist" means and I'm not going to go down that rabbit hole with you now. But I want to address the ideas themselves. If you have a country full of 335 million people who don't share common values, why does that country not break apart? This is something the left and never thinks about, even as it encourages massive immigration into the country, [with] people don't agree with the people who live here. That's not good!
Here is seems to know what a white supremacist is...
Media Matters: Tucker Carlson says it's unfair to call the Portland attacker a white supremacist
Carlson: This is "hardly the behavior of a coherent white supremacist," but "fake civil rights groups" like the SPLC "jumped onboard immediately"
Same pattern has been used before to protect white supremacists and right wing terrorists by Fox...
IN THE NAME OF THE FODDER 7/27/2011 The Fox News rapid-response team distinguishes violence in the name of a religion from the practitioners of that religion -- as long as it's Christianity.

Fox analyst compares Tucker Carlson to Nazi sympathizer as the Fox host defends Putin- Ralph Peters: "You sound like Charles Lindbergh in 1938 saying, "Hitler hasn't attacked us."
What going on? Fox News is mainstreaming white supremacism...
Media Matters: VIDEO: How Fox News is mainstreaming white supremacists and neo-Nazis
Fox News report on Colorado gunman ignores his white supremacist connections Gunman who killed a sheriff’s deputy reportedly had social media “filled with the icons of the white supremacist ‘alt-right’"
After a deadly shooting in Colorado on New Year’s Eve that left one Douglas County sheriff’s deputy dead and four others injured, a Fox News host omitted reports that the gunman had posted white supremacist "alt-right” memes on his personal Facebook page. While host Eric Shawn noted that the gunman had “posted videos criticizing Colorado law enforcement” on social media, he failed to note that the gunman’s personal “Facebook page is filled with the icons of the white supremacist ‘alt-right.’" Fox’s omission of the gunman’s “alt-right” sympathies echoed its reporting on a February 2017 mosque shooting carried out by an “ultranationalist white supremacist” in Canada, where the network ignored that shooter’s far-right background. From the January 2 edition of Fox News’ America’s Newsroom:
