On Wednesday night's edition of The Tucker Carlson Show, the namesake Fox News angertainer came out swinging against Democratic California Governor Gavin Newsom's slavery Reparations Task Force, which was established in 2020 and is currently deliberating on how Black residents can qualify for the program. Its final recommendations to the State Legislature are due in June 2023.

While a number of socioeconomic factors are being considered, Carlson proclaimed that the only means of determining eligibility is through racial "purity" tests like those conducted by the Nazis under Adolf Hitler's Third Reich and that such measures are doomed to collapse into bloodshed:

Because when government creates a spoils system based on race and ethnicity — and our government certainly has done that — division and violence are the inevitable outcomes. That is true always and everywhere. That fact never changes. And liberals for many decades used to pretend to understand that. That's why they opposed Jim Crow and the Nuremberg Laws. But at some point – and it would be interesting to know precisely when and why liberals enthusiastically embraced the racial spoils system they once claimed to hate. This is unfolding across the country, but it's especially prevalent in places liberals control. The more power liberals have, the more sweeping and rigid the race-based spoils system they create. In California, of course, they have absolute power, and that's why the government of San Francisco has just announced they will send you money if you have the right skin color.

Carlson played an excerpt from a local news station report that summarized the proposal:

More cities and counties in the Bay Area are starting guaranteed income programs for the most vulnerable people in their communities. The Silicon Valley Guaranteed Income Pilot Program says it will target people of color, undocumented and mixed-status families and women-led households. One-hundred-fifty families will get $1,000 a month for two years with no strings attached.

To Carlson, this objective is an outrageous injustice:

The most vulnerable people in the community. If you're the most vulnerable person in the community, you get $1,000 a month. But that specifically does not include the homeless guy OD'ing in the park on fentanyl if he's white. If he's white, he can die because if he's white, even if he's dying, he's by definition not vulnerable. California now has many programs like this.

The state has now proposed a reparations program for the descendants of slaves. It seems simple, but there's a problem with it. How do you know who qualifies for reparations? It's been a long time. It's been more than 150 years since slavery. And Americans have made a lot of babies since then, and many of them are interracial.

So at this point, there are plenty of white people in America who are descended from slaves. There are plenty of Black people in America who are descended from slave owners. That's just true. So how do you know who qualifies for government reparations? Well, of course, there's only one way to find out. And it's old-fashioned Nazi race science. Nazi race science. So the state will have to certify the racial purity of its citizens in order to send them money. That's gonna have to happen. Do we really want to go there? Do we really want to do that? Amazingly, liberals really do.

Carlson then added:

The city of San Francisco just fired its elections director, a man called John Arntz, because he's white. We're not guessing at that. The president of San Francisco's election commission, Chris Jerdonek, confirmed that was the reasoning. And we're quoting: 'Our decision,' he said to the man who was fired, 'was not about your performance. But after 20 years, we wanted to take action on the city's racial equity plan and give people an opportunity to compete for a leadership position.' Fired for his skin color.

Carlson notably omitted, however, that the controversial decision was reversed on Tuesday. Arntz even joked about it:

Personally, I was really tired of hearing about this John Arntz guy. I was tired of seeing his picture.
