On Monday night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson – one of the very, very few pundits who aren’t afraid to stand up and tell the truth about the various elements causing destruction and chaos throughout the country – shared some uncomfortable facts about the Black Lives Matter movement. Refusing to kowtow before the official narrative, Carlson explained that BLM has about as much to do with saving black lives as Antifa has to do with fighting Nazis.
As part of his long, effective monologue, Carlson dropped in this tidbit: “Here’s the new rule and it defines everything: You are not allowed to question Black Lives Matter in any way. Full stop. That rule has been enforced without mercy everywhere and not just in this country.”
Well, Tucker definitely hit the nail on the head there, because the mob came for him big-time after his show on Monday, threatening his advertisers and demanding that Fox News remove him from the airwaves. A weaker network might have succumbed under the pressure. A weaker host might have been compelled to issue a lame apology. Thankfully (so far), we haven’t had to watch either indignity.
“The only way to defeat the mob is to say exactly what you believe,” said an unapologetic Carlson on Tuesday night. “The mob came for us, and they spent the last 24 hours trying to force this show off the air for good.
“They won’t succeed in that, thankfully,” Carlson continued. “We work for one of the last brave companies in America and they’re not intimidated. We’re grateful for that. But the whole thing did get us thinking that we should be more specific about who this mob is, and what they’re doing.”
Carlson said it was past time to take a close look at the leftists perpetrating chaos from coast to coast.
“Who are the people trying to take over your country, cancel your rights, eliminate our centuries-long tradition of tolerance – yes tolerance – and of free expression?” he asked. “And the truth is, we often don’t know their names. They’re mostly faceless political agitators who exist primarily online. They are trolls who thrive on cruelty. And yet suddenly they have immense power over all of us. Weak leaders now reflexively bow to their demands, no matter what those are.”
Carlson said that the aims of these agitators have little or nothing to do with achieving such benign goals as “equality.”
“Racism no longer has anything to do with race,” he said. “It’s a way to control disobedience.”
Exactly. See the left’s efforts to cancel people like Terry Crews and Candace Owens who don’t fall neatly in line with the narrative. See the pictures of white women flipping off black police officers out on the protest line. See the left’s total antipathy for black thinkers like Clarence Thomas, Shelby Steele, and Thomas Sowell. You’re either on board with the revolution…or you are to be silenced.
It’s getting increasingly difficult to picture everything turning out okay.
