‘Just So You Know The Rules In This Country’: Tucker Contrasts Treatment Of Roger Stone With That Of Jeffrey Epstein | The Daily Caller

Posted by M. C. on November 22, 2019

All of which, Carlson contended, was “much harsher and more outraged … than anything that greeted convicted child molester Jeffrey Epstein.”

“How was he arrested?” asked the Fox News host. “That’s a trick question. He wasn’t arrested. According to the New York Times account, prosecutors called Jeffrey Epstein’s lawyer and politely asked him to turn himself in, which Epstein politely did. Nobody tipped off CNN.”

Stone was a show trial.

Epstein needed to be quietly eliminated.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson contrasted the public arrest and harsh treatment of longtime Trump associate Roger Stone with the treatment received by deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

After an early morning January military-style arrest involving armed federal agents that was tipped to CNN, Stone was convicted on Friday of one count each of obstructing an official proceeding and witness tampering, along with five counts of making false statements to the House Intelligence Committee.

“Stone’s main crime was lying to Congress about who he had or had not spoken to about Russia,” Carlson opined. “By the time Stone’s trial began in Washington, the larger scandal that ensnared him had long been debunked.”

Still, Carlson noted, prosecutors “argued that Roger Stone should spend up to 50 years in prison, effectively the rest of his life,” while “official Washington cheered.”

“‘Rot in hell,’ they screamed on Twitter, oblivious to karma, which by the way is real,” said Tucker, referring in part to “The View” co-host Meghan McCain’s post-Stone-conviction remarks. (RELATED: John Podesta Takes A Victory Lap After Roger Stone Verdict)

All of which, Carlson contended, was “much harsher and more outraged … than anything that greeted convicted child molester Jeffrey Epstein.”

“How was he arrested?” asked the Fox News host. “That’s a trick question. He wasn’t arrested. According to the New York Times account, prosecutors called Jeffrey Epstein’s lawyer and politely asked him to turn himself in, which Epstein politely did. Nobody tipped off CNN.”

Carlson went on to describe Epstein’s treatment and initial plea deal, where he received only 18 months in prison and was allowed to serve it in a “private wing of the Palm Beach County Stockade.” Epstein was even able to leave for work release even though convicted child molesters aren’t “allowed to get work release.”

“Authorities gave it to Epstein anyway, apparently they liked him,” said Carlson. “The authorities don’t like Roger Stone. He did something worse than molesting children. He mocked the people in charge, and then helped get Donald Trump elected president. For that Roger Stone is likely to die in prison. Just so you know the rules in this country.”

The Shootings, the Stats, and the Violent War against the Deplorables, by Boyd D. Cathey – The Unz Review

Posted by M. C. on August 19, 2019

The sooner those of us who qualify as “deplorables” understand that, the sooner we comprehend that there is no compromise possible whatsoever with those progressivists and Leftists—the sooner we understand that the self-appointed leaders of the Establishment “Conservative Movement” are not our defenders but 5th Column collaborationists, then, the sooner we come to the sobering realization that we hold our destiny and the future in our hands.

http://www.unz.com/article/the-shootings-the-stats-and-the-violent-war-against-the-deplorables/

To listen to almost all the reporters on Fox News—and most of the Establishment Media experts—after the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, you would have thought that President Donald Trump needed to do exactly what the Reverend Jimmy Swaggart did back a few years ago: get on TV and cry and bawl, and emotionally apologize: “I have sinned! I have sinned!” And then add, “I know in my heart that I am a ‘white nationalist’ and have unleashed all this horrible violence and murder! And I am deeply, exceedingly, profoundly, eternally, and unalterably sorry.” And as a final coup de grace: “From now on I will be a good Establishment Conservative, I will listen to great thinkers like…hmm…National Review’s David French, and Ben Shapiro and Jonah Goldberg. And I shall dwell in the House of Martin Luther King and the NAACP forever!”

Only Tucker Carlson uttered a demurer, of sorts. According to his nearly lone voice on national television (“Tucker Carlson Tonight,” August 6):

“If you were to assemble a list, a hierarchy of concerns of problems this country faces, where would white supremacy be on the list? Right up there with Russia probably. It’s actually not a real problem in America,” Carlson noted. He added that the combined membership of all the white supremacy groups throughout America could likely fit inside a college football stadium. “This is a country where the average person is getting poorer where the suicide rate is spiking,” Carlson said, drawing light on the real pressing problems that face Americans. With Russian collusion fantasies no longer gaining traction, this is another attempt by the political establishment to demonize President Donald Trump and cling to power. “This is a hoax, just like the Russia hoax. It is a conspiracy theory used to divide the country and keep a hold on power. That’s exactly what’s going on.”

Of course, being on Fox did not keep Carlson from being attacked by other Fox personalities, and, unsurprisingly, the most direct hit came from Shepard Smith, the notoriously open Leftist who handles Fox News in the afternoons. Without naming Carlson specifically, Smith zeroed in for the kill:

[I]n direct contrast to Carlson’s comments, Smith [endorsing Joe Biden’s criticism of the president as a racist] demanded that we “recognize that white nationalism is real, that white nationalism is on the rise, that white nationalism is without question a very serious problem in America and [we must] beat down those who would help facilitate it and encourage it.” [Italics mine]

The usual luminaries from Establishment Conservatism also eagerly jumped in to trash the president—and his supporters, those unruly and unwashed “deplorables”—as witness just a couple of selections from the dozens of our supposed “betters” who lead the “conservative opposition,” but in actuality normalize and deaden us to the Leftward progressivist madness that engulfs and destroys more of our historic culture and heritage each day.

There was the insufferable David French, senior writer and senior fellow at the National Review Institute. Here are some of the choice things he said about Trump and those who have in the past supported him. I quote him at length because he symbolizes what most major voices of the “Conservative Movement” are saying:

The United States is now facing a deadly challenge from a connected, radical, online-organizing community of vicious white-nationalist terrorists. They are every bit as evil as jihadists, and they radicalize in much the same way….[W]hite-supremacist terror… a new youth movement of hate…the ‘alt-right’…targeted Jews, it targeted African Americans and Hispanics, and it targeted critics of Donald Trump. It obsessed over immigrants from south of the border. It used words like “invasion” to describe immigration, and words such as “replacement” to describe the imagined fate of white America. It thrilled to Trump’s rhetoric, and parts of Trump’s movement loved it right back….

Think of the thrills, energy, and inspiration they’ve experienced from the highest office in the land…since Trump came down the escalator in 2015. His announcement speech cast immigrants collectively as dangerous and deficient, with only “some” exceptions. He has used the language of invasion frequently, even to the point of invoking a military response….

Alt-right support for Trump wasn’t random. It wasn’t arbitrary. It was directly related to his rhetoric, and it was cultivated by his allies, and it was cultivated in part because it was a new way to fight….[O]ur nation’s leaders need to focus on reconciliation and unity, and if they are not up to that most basic and fundamental aspect of their job, then they must be replaced. [Italics mine]

Then, there was little Ben Shapiro who fancies himself an up-and-coming major player in the moldering and pallid Movement. Shapiro did not employ the colorfully Leftist vocabulary that French utilized, but he still managed to get in his licks against the “Chief-white-nationalist-in-charge.”

Trump, wrote Shapiro, is a flaming “xenophobe” whose tweets “All too often…are bad, both morally and politically.”

The comments by French and Shapiro represent a range of “conservative” response, and in between you will find exhortations by such worthies as Steve Hayes, Martha MacCallum, Matthew Continetti (married to zealous NeverTrumper Bill Kristol’s daughter), Karl Rove, and a long list of others, most of whom are Neoconservatives...

The sooner those of us who qualify as “deplorables” understand that, the sooner we comprehend that there is no compromise possible whatsoever with those progressivists and Leftists—the sooner we understand that the self-appointed leaders of the Establishment “Conservative Movement” are not our defenders but 5th Column collaborationists, then, the sooner we come to the sobering realization that we hold our destiny and the future in our hands.

In Defense of Tucker Carlson – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on August 19, 2019

The dreams of creating an empire that encompasses the whole world, enforcing “liberal democracy” on the nations, as supported by Bolton and others, lead down a futile path. And whenever a futile path is pursued through enforcing its policies on the globe, it is no longer futile, but suicidal.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2019/08/atilla-mert-sulker/in-defense-of-tucker-carlson/

Amid rumors that Tucker Carlson may have suddenly been suspended off of Fox News, some are taking this claim even further, predicting that he may be replaced by Ben Shapiro. While these claims have remained only rumors, it is important to not lose sight of the importance of Carlson and his platform. Whether these rumors become reality or not, I fully stand by this defense of Carlson.

Many small government activists, even, have gone as far as to condemn and chastise Carlson for his criticism of Austrian economics. While the claims made by Carlson in this regard are short sighted and unwarranted, many conservatives and libertarians have allowed this to obscure the importance of Carlson. The fact of the matter is that while the Hannitys, Limbaughs, and Levins of the world continuously call for more war in the Middle East and elsewhere, Carlson remains a bold anti-war maverick. And one of very few on Fox News.

Let’s go through some of the various warmongers and neocons that Carlson has exposed on his show. Beginning with one that is prominent in the current administration- John Bolton. In an interview with Bolton last year, before his appointment to national security advisor, Carlson caught Bolton off guard, and began to grill him on whether we should go to war with Iran. “There haven’t been any Iran sponsored terror attacks in this country”, Carlson pointed out, as he proceeded to rightfully connect terror attacks on the U.S. to “Saudi Arabians, the Gulf States, and the Sunni Arab World”. A disgruntled Bolton then proceeded to say that it’s Iran’s “support for terrorism generally, that should concern us- not neccessarily specific attacks on the United States”. Of course, here, Bolton is alluding to the dream of the liberal international order, in which our interests lie in the promotion of “liberal democracy” worldwide.

Carlson then blatantly noted that to commit any number of troops or increase military spending, it would make much more sense to “go after the people who are attacking us here first”. Sidestepping this, Bolton then began to put the blame on North Korea, and their nuclear weapons. Bolton then returned to point out that had Israel bombed Iran 15 years before, we’d be in a much better place now. Carlson then pointed out that regime change in Iraq and Libya turned out to be a disaster, leading Bolton to immediately stop him there. Bolton ended the interview, saying that the analysis of Carlson and like minded non-interventionists, was “simplistic”, his final defense.

On many other occasions, Carlson has pointed out his abhorrence to the idea of war with Iran, grilling Bolton and the war lobby following the recent threat of war with Iran. “How many people will be killed? The most basic of all questions, but a question too rarely asked by leaders contemplating war”, Carlson asserted. Carlson also rebuked a clip where someone on CNN criticized the president for being indecisive on whether to strike Iran, as Trump decided last minute not to follow through with the prospective attack on Iran. Of course, in Washington, being indecisive is a greater sin than killing hundreds in a strike.

Carlson also once faced, perhaps the most crazed of all war mongers, Ralph Peters, who helped lead the anti-Russia hysteria. Peters branded the Russians as “terrorists” who hate the United States, thus it is wrong to seek alliances with them in any ways. To Peters, Putin “is as close to pure evil” as he can think of. Like Bolton, in pursuit of the liberal international order, Peters asserted that “we should be strengthening our alliances with democracies”. When Carlson asked why the Russians constituted a threat to the U.S., Peters compared Carlson to a Hitler apologist, saying “you sound like Charles Lindbergh in 1938 saying Hitler hasn’t attacked us”. Of course, this is a classic move in the neocon playbook. Carlson’s scuffle with Peters is reminiscent of when John McCain called out Ron Paul in a debate for supporting “isolationism”, which “allowed Hitler to come to power”. All Paul was doing was pointing out the failures of the war in Iraq.

University of Chicago political scientist John Mearsheimer notes that “the (liberal international) order contains the seeds of its own destruction”. For if the dream of liberal hegemony, i.e., that the United States can impose its will on the rest of the world, is to prevail, a unipolar world would be needed. This is not so, as China has emerged as a major world power, bringing back “balance of power politics”. But China’s emergence as a major world power was inevitable, Mearsheimer explains, through integrating it into the liberal international order, “making it richer and richer”. Thus the quest to achieve a liberal international order lead back to balance of power politics, making the former a futile endeavor…

Libertarian Ideologues – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on July 23, 2019

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2019/07/laurence-m-vance/libertarian-ideologues/

By

Tucker Carlson is no libertarian—and neither are the Koch brothers.

Late last month, on his Fox television show Tucker Carlson Tonight, Tucker Carlson criticized Charles and David Koch for being out of step with Republicans, conservatives, and Americans, and for being “libertarian ideologues, passionate and inflexible.”

In doing so, Carlson revealed just how much of a libertarian he isn’t. He supports the government’s war on drugs, favors government interest rate caps on credit cards and payday loans, and opposes cuts to Social Security and Medicare—two of the pillars of the welfare state….

This brings up an interesting question: Just what do real libertarian ideologues believe? Here are forty things to start with.

Libertarian ideologues believe that taxation is theft.

Libertarian ideologues believe that ticket scalping is a victimless crime

Libertarian ideologues believe that the war on drugs should be ended and all drugs should be legal.

Libertarian ideologues believe that education should be completely separated from the state.

Libertarian ideologues believe that business owners have the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason and on any basis.

Libertarian ideologues believe that the minimum wage should be abolished and all wage rates negotiated between employer and employee without government interference.

Libertarian ideologues believe that the government should not prohibit or regulate gambling in any way, shape, or form.

Libertarian ideologues believe that prostitution should be legal as along as property rights are respected.

Libertarian ideologues believe that the government should never prohibit discrimination, seek to prevent discrimination, or punish anyone for practicing discrimination.

Libertarian ideologues believe that health care and health insurance should be completely separated from the state.

Libertarian ideologues believe that all government welfare programs should be eliminated.

Libertarian ideologues believe that the TSA should be abolished and all airports and airlines be made responsible for their own security.

Libertarian ideologues believe that the government shouldn’t subsidize art and culture.

Libertarian ideologues believe that government CAFE standards should be eliminated in their entirety.

Libertarian ideologues believe that all charity should be private and voluntary.

Libertarian ideologues believe that “price gouging” should never be a crime.

Libertarian ideologues believe that all foreign aid to every country should be eliminated.

Libertarian ideologues believe that all usury laws and interest-rate regulations should be repealed.

Libertarian ideologues believe that the Department of Defense should be strictly limited to the actual defense of the country.

Libertarian ideologues believe that there should be no farm subsidies and that the Department of Agriculture should be abolished.

Libertarian ideologues believe that the government shouldn’t give research grants to any individual, school, organization, or corporation.

Libertarian ideologues believe that there should be no gun control laws.

Libertarian ideologues believe that all space exploration should be privately undertaken and funded.

Libertarian ideologues believe that all government funding to Planned Parenthood should be eliminated—even if the organization ceased performing abortions.

Libertarian ideologues believe that the government shouldn’t be doing anything to combat “climate change.”

Libertarian ideologues believe that the federal government should not have an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Libertarian ideologues believe that the federal government should not have a Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Libertarian ideologues believe that the federal government should not have a Federal Housing Administration.

Libertarian ideologues believe that the federal government should not have a Federal Trade Commission or a Consumer Products Safety Commission.

Libertarian ideologues believe that the federal government should not operate a rail service like AMTRAK.

Libertarian ideologues believe that all U.S. military bases on foreign soil should be closed.

Libertarian ideologues believe that all U.S. troops should be brought home from foreign countries.

Libertarian ideologues believe that the United States should not be the world’s policeman.

Libertarian ideologues believe that the government should not bail out any business of any size for any reason.

Libertarian ideologues believe that all tariffs, trade restrictions, import quotas, anti-dumping laws, and trade agreements be ended and absolute free trade established.

Libertarian ideologues believe that the United States should have a Jeffersonian noninterventionist foreign policy of peace, commerce, honest friendship with all nations, and entangling alliances with none.

Libertarian ideologues believe that all anti-trust laws should be repealed.

Libertarian ideologues believe that there should be no National School Lunch Program.

Libertarian ideologues believe that legal adults should not have to be 21 to purchase alcohol.

Libertarian ideologues believe that the United States should not fight foreign wars.

America needs more libertarian ideologues. And the more passionate and inflexible the better.

Tucker Carlson’s Broadside Against Austrian Economics | Mises Institute

Posted by M. C. on June 6, 2019

Tucker Carlson knows better, He knows full well how tariffs make society overall worse off, how markets make poor Americans far better off than the poor in many countries, why government medicine doesn’t work, and how minimum wage laws hurt the least-skilled workers. His argument is about priorities and strategy (and TV ratings), not ideology.

https://mises.org/power-market/tucker-carlsons-broadside-against-austrian-economics

Jeff Deist

Fox News host Tucker Carlson took to the airwaves of this popular show last night to lambaste Austrian economics and libertarianism, which he views as twin pillars of a failed ideology that doesn’t protect American workers and their interests.

The GOP, he argues, is in thrall to free-market corporate interests and esoteric economic theories from dusty textbooks. Republicans remain wedded to unbridled libertarian political philosophy, tax cuts, deregulation, and unilateral free trade, all of which enrich elites but hurt average people. Meanwhile, presidential aspirants like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders offer the American electorate real-world solutions to economic insecurity, jobs, and healthcare.

It’s a compelling story, but untrue. Does Carlson honestly think Republican members of Congress are overly theoretical and ideological? And here we thought they were a bunch of unprincipled and poorly-read hacks!1

Does he honestly think the budget-busting GOP of recent political memory, from Bush II (Iraq War, Medicare Part D, Department of Homeland Security, Patriot Act), John McCain, Mitt Romney are ideological libertarians? Why did Ron Paul and Rand Paul fare poorly among Republican primary voters, if in fact free-market ideology and its donor class dominate the party? And hasn’t the party been overtaken by Trumpist protectionists?

Of course we’re pleased when Right populists recognize the influence of the Austrian school, just as we’re pleased when Left-liberals at the New Republic convince themselves that Misesean “neoliberalism” has taken over the world. We note that Mises and Rothbard continue to receive criticism decades after their respective deaths, a testament to their deep (and apparently nefarious!) influence and an honor given to few economists.

Carlson, a onetime Cato Institute staffer and Weekly Standard writer, understands both Republican politics and the DC world of think tanks and punditry. When he references the Austrian school or libertarianism, it’s shorthand for “Koch money and influence” rather than any real ideology. It’s his shorthand for the “self-interests of rich guys,” interests given an intellectual veneer by academics and writers who are happy to accept billionaire crumbs in exchange for cozy non-profit sinecures. “Conservatism, Inc.” (or “Libertarianism, Inc.”) has become an self-serving industry unto itself, sclerotic and ripe for criticism.

There is truth to this. But it’s not an ideological truth. Tucker Carlson knows better, He knows full well how tariffs make society overall worse off, how markets make poor Americans far better off than the poor in many countries, why government medicine doesn’t work, and how minimum wage laws hurt the least-skilled workers. His argument is about priorities and strategy (and TV ratings), not ideology. And it accepts a fundamental tenet of the Left: self-interest for me is noble and warranted, self-interest for others (especially the rich) is suspicious if not sinister.

In other words, Carlson presents a fundamentally zero-sum perspective, which is to say a fundamentally political perspective.

That said, his populism—particularly his antiwar stance—should not be dismissed…

Media Matters Wants Tucker Carlson Fired – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on March 15, 2019

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2019/03/david-gornoski/media-matters-wants-tucker-carlson-fired-because-he-is-against-bombing-foreigners/

By

Media Matters’ mantra:
Democrat drones may break foreign bones, but conservative words forever hurt me.

Failed Clinton operative David Brock and his hate group Media Fecal Matters want Tucker Carlson fired because he’s the only cable news anchor against bombing foreigners. They recently put out a desperate hit piece on Carlson recycling decade plus-old clips of him on Florida shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge’s radio show. The clips contain a smattering of out-of-context satirical points and hot takes on culture topics—standard, vanilla comedy radio banter. However, no crude remark made by Carlson compares to the vulgar, relentless barbarity David Brock’s Media Matters has promoted in media for decades. While Carlson may have made flippant and poor taste comments, Media Matters wants a world where millions of people of color overseas have no news anchor on nightly news making the case against our interventions and sanctions of their homelands.

Media Matters and their army of email bots are flooding sponsors demanding they desist advertising on Carlson’s program to prove their virtue for the concern for underage sex abuse victims. This is preposterous. While Brock’s Media Matters was busy shilling positive media coverage of Obama’s illegal wars in Libya, Yemen, and Syria, Tucker Carlson was making a spirited defense against our meddling in these countries’ affairs. Unlike Media Matters, which remains curiously silent when Trump continues his opponents’ sanctions and regime change, Carlson continues to challenge him based on the same principles which led him to renounce his support of the Iraq War.

DC Antifa Leader Arrested For Multiple Violent Felonies Out Of A Job At Progressive Nonprofit After His Radical Ideology Was Exposed | The Daily Caller

Posted by M. C. on January 31, 2019

While rubbing shoulders with powerful Democrats in Congress, Alcoff was living a second life as an organizer of Smash Racism DC, the Antifa group responsible for mobbing Fox News host and TheDCNF co-founder Tucker Carlson’s house in November.

https://dailycaller.com/2019/01/29/dc-antifa-leader-arrested-job-felonies/

Andrew Kerr

Washington, D.C. Antifa leader Joseph “Jose” Alcoff, also known as “Chepe,” has been out of a job working for a progressive nonprofit since December, his former employer told The Daily Caller News Foundation on Tuesday.

Alcoff was arrested in Philadelphia on Jan. 10 and charged with multiple felonies, including aggravated assault, ethnic intimidation and terroristic threats, in connection to the Antifa mob attack against two Marines in November. One of the Marines, Alejandro Godinez, testified in December that he shouted “I’m Mexican” at the mob, which allegedly led the attackers to call him a “spic” and “wetback.”

TheDCNF’s reporting on Alcoff’s fanatical personas, “Chepe” and “Jose Martin,” and his connection to violent Antifa groups were integral factors leading to his arrest, according to an affidavit filed in his case. (RELATED: DC Antifa Leader Charged With ‘Ethnic Intimidation’ Related To Attack On Marines)

TheDCNF unmasked Alcoff on Dec. 18, but his former employer, Americans for Financial Reform (AFR), ignored numerous requests for comment in the ensuing six weeks inquiring whether it was aware of Alcoff’s extreme and violent rhetoric or if it planned on taking any action in regards to the radical’s statements.

Tucker Carlson and the Plight of the Yellow Vests – Gold Goats ‘n Guns

Posted by M. C. on January 7, 2019

In short, globalism has gentrified the cities and impoverished the countryside. Rural job prospects are gone in many areas, not just in the U.S. but also in France and Italy and Greece, etc.

https://tomluongo.me/2019/01/05/tucker-carlson-and-the-plight-of-the-yellow-vests/

TOM LUONGO

I have to hand out sincere kudos to Tucker Carlson. His opening salvo for 2019 was one for the ages. It was a broad-ranging, fifteen-minute rhetorical tour de force.

Tying together Mitt Romney’s vulture capitalism, unchecked immigration, political corruption and the destruction of the middle class family, Carlson laid out a story that if everyone took off their ideological blinders for a few minutes (myself included) would see as simply a horror show.

Carlson’s thesis is that the American family is disintegrating. He’s right. But it’s not just America. It’s everywhere globalism has been the watchword of public policy, ie. Europe as well… Read the rest of this entry »

The Five Features of the Left’s Fact-Free Universe – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on November 10, 2018

When asked for evidence to support bizarre, tone-deaf, I’m-living-on-another-planet claims like these, the so-called evidence always winds up like that article — either showing nothing of the kind, or indeed proving the exact opposite.

The fact-free universe they live in, which stokes their emotional hypochondria, motivates the mobs threatening people like Carlson.

Well, this is nice.

Apparently a left-wing mob showed up at the home of FOX News personality Tucker Carlson the other night while he was still at the FOX studio.

After receiving text messages about a commotion outside his home, Carlson called his wife.

“She had been in the kitchen alone getting ready to go to dinner,” Carlson recalled, “and she heard pounding on the front door and screaming…. Someone started throwing himself against the front door and actually cracked the front door.”

People were chanting “racist scumbag, leave town!” and “Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!”… Read the rest of this entry »

The Unpardonable Heresy of Tucker Carlson – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on September 14, 2018

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2018/09/patrick-j-buchanan/the-unpardonable-heresy-of-tucker-carlson/

By 

Our diversity is our greatest strength.

After playing clips of Democratic politicians reciting that truth of modern liberalism, Tucker Carlson asked, “How, precisely, is diversity our strength? Since you’ve made this our new national motto, please be specific.”

Reaction to Carlson’s question, with some declaring him a racist for having raised it, suggests that what we are dealing with here is not a demonstrable truth but a creed not subject to debate.

Yet the question remains valid: Where is the scientific, historic or empirical evidence that the greater the racial, ethnic, cultural and religious diversity of a nation, the stronger it becomes?

From recent decades, it seems more true to say the reverse: The more diverse a nation, the greater the danger of its disintegration. Read the rest of this entry »
