'The 23-year-old council member who spearheaded the removal of gender-specific words from the Berkeley city code has bragged about turning down an appearance on the Tucker Carlson show, labeling him a “white supremacist goblin.“
Rigel Robinson, who was a co-sponsor of the ordinance to cross out such commonly used words as “manhole,”“manpower” and “craftsmen” from the city’s municipal code, and replace them with “maintenance hole,” “human effort” and the medieval-sounding “artisans,” has dramatically turned down an appearance on the Tucker Carlson Tonight show to discuss the fresh politically correct purge.
Robinson tweeted a screenshot of his email exchange with the show’s booker, Chelsea Gilman, who asked him if he would like to go on air to give background on his initiative and speak about how it was received by the locals.
Robinson, apparently seeing no use in getting across to people on the other side of the political spectrum, shot down the offer with a barrage of insults at the Fox News host.
“Tucker Carlson is a dangerous, xenophobic, racist, white supremacist goblin who I am not interested in engaging with,” he wrote.

The rebuke struck a chord with Robinson’s fellow liberals on Twitter, who flooded his comments with memes and high-fives.'
