"The cost is entirely on you," Carlson told his audience in a Monday night monologue in which he warned of immigrants moving to their neighborhoods, "but don't complain, or else they will call you 'Hitler.'"

But Carlson's monologue wouldn't have been far out of place on a white supremacist forum. Hours after ProPublica released disturbing audio of immigrant children who had been separated from their parents at the U.S. border, Carlson told viewers the immigrants were coming "to change your country forever."

In a screed against what he termed as the "ruling class," Carlson (a millionaire who went to aristocratic Rhode Island boarding school St. George's) defended the separation of immigrant families by forecasting "the collapse of the American family." His rhetoric, intentional or not, plays into textbook white nationalist claims about traditional family structures and the white race.
