In his opening monologue on Monday night, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson looked at the data and discovered that individual American’s chances of dying from a lightning strike are greater than they are of being killed in a white supremacist attack.

“Some of the data they produce are clearly highly political. For example, they count the Parkland school shooting as an act of white supremacist violence. It wasn’t,” Carlson told viewers.

“So the numbers they have are inflated. And yet, the researchers at the University of Maryland could find less than 70 people in the entire country who died from white supremacist violence over the entire period between 2015 and 2019.”
