Here’s what he said.
According to Breitbart News, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson slammed corrupt politicians stating that they now welcome political violence.
Carlson said, “In this country, we governed by consent, not by force. People with guns don’t make our laws. Voters do. You may have a Glock in your hand, but on Election Day, you have precisely as many votes as the little old lady who disagrees with you. That’s our system. The weak are supposed to have as much power over the government as the strong. That’s the basis of our equality as Americans, something we should cherish and protect.”
He added, “Political violence immediately short-circuits this. It ends democracy. Violence instead returns us to the most primitive of all systems, one in which might makes right. People who hurt others get to do exactly what they want. Everyone else has to obey them. There is no greater threat to civilization than this, and we used to understand that because it’s obvious.”
He continued, “But things have changed. People who run this country are no longer shocked by political violence. They welcome it. They slyly encourage it. They are its beneficiary. They tell us the only real crimes are thought crimes. It’s OK to set fires or smash strangers in the face with 2x4s. So long as you are chanting the correct slogan. If you are on the right team, everything is allowed. But if you dare to dissent from the orthodoxy, you will be swiftly punished.” You can read the full article here.
