Tucker Carlson called out a Canadian activist for tweeting in support of church arsons that are happening across Canada. Harsha Walia, executive director of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, tweeted “burn it all down” on June 30. This move sparked immense blowback for Walia, causing her to lock her account.
Carlson’s show featured a segment on recent Canadian church arsons. At the time of this article, over 20 churches have been burned down or vandalized. Carlson compared Canada to the Soviet Union before listing prominent Canadians that either failed to condemn the attacks or encouraged them. Carlson described Walia as a “monster.”
It is important to note the BC Civil Liberties Association is an autonomous, non-partisan charitable society that seeks to “promote, defend, sustain, and extend civil liberties and human rights.”
Carlson went on to call Walia a “dangerous lunatic” later in the segment during an interview with Ezra Levant of Rebel News. Levant pointed to how Walia has not been fired as of yet.
Walia was not the only public figure in Canada to encourage church arsons. Recently, a lawyer in Ontario offered to help burn down churches as well as defend people that get charged for arson. A radio host in New Brunswick apologized after calling for arson. A far-left blogger and podcast host in Quebec made similar incendiary comments. Indigenous leaders have condemned the church arsons.
“Burning down churches is not in solidarity with us Indigenous people. As I said we do not destroy people’s places of worship. We’re concerned about the burning and defacing of churches bringing more strife, depression and anxiety to those already in pain and mourning.”Jenn Allan-Riley, assistant Pentecostal minister
