Fox News host Tucker Carlson had some pointed remarks on the Federalist radio last week. The right wing raconteur sounded off on America’s current state of affairs.
He announced, “In 15 years, will we all recognize that this was an important moment, a pivotal moment? And I think the answer is, there really is a lot going on now. There is a revolution in progress.”
Then declared, “I’m not particularly brave. I’ve never served in the military. I wouldn’t want to, you know I’d be afraid. So it’s not like I’m some particularly courageous person. I’m not. It’s just that so many people who should be brave are fleeing the scene, and that just didn’t enrages me.”
Plus he added, “This is the first revolution I’ve ever heard of this aims downward. I mean, this is an attempt by the most privileged people in our society to crush and humiliate the least privileged in our society. Again, you have to wonder why. There’s something really ominous about that. There’s something really, in addition to, you know how sinister it is and how just immoral what they’ve done is, it’s just a level of kind of bad sportsmanship that I can’t even process. You know what I mean?”
Along with, “A mob of revolutionaries are trying to eliminate American history. Why are they doing that? Not because they don’t like the aesthetics of the Columbus statue. No, they’re doing it because they understand that when you eliminate people’s past, you get to control their future. It’s a power grab.”
Carlson claimed, “But clearly Republicans allowed all of this to happen. They focused all of their energy on tax rates, which, by the way, can be changed with a single vote. You know what I mean? You spend your life trying to change – and I’m for lower taxes and I’m not trying to make an argument going for higher taxes, I guess. I’m just saying talk about misapplied energy, talk about wasted time.”
And expressed, “I know plenty of people who are for Black Lives Matter. A lot of them are nice people. I’m not mad at them, I disagree. I think Black Lives Matter is poison. Okay, they have another view, that’s all right. But they’re not Republican senators. Their job isn’t to make it possible for my children to live in this country.”
In addition, “I think the only answer at this point, and I keep saying this on TV, no one else seems to say it along with me, but the only answer is to fall back on our fundamental defense, which is the country itself. Its customs. Its founding documents. We should, as non-revolutionaries, say out loud, every day: ‘We want this to be a colorblind meritocracy.’”
As he stated, “A nonracist society is a society in which you are not judged for your race, by definition, so let’s stop judging people. Period.” The conservative commentator not cutting Republicans any slack.
