The Democrats currently in power are leading “the most sweeping and audacious assault on civil liberties in American history,” the Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson revealed on his Friday night show “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“Nothing like that has ever taken place in this country before,” Carlson said. “This is the most sweeping and audacious assault on civil liberties in American history.”
The post-election purge
Carlson started off Friday night’s program by highlighting the tactics that the Democrats have been employing ever since winning the 2020 election, tactics, according to Carlson, that are meant to “purge” their political opposition.
One of those tactics is censorship. Carlson, here, noted how Democrats have been working to crush “even the mildest dissent” by social media bans, including the shutting down of Parler.
The other main tactic, according to Carlson, has been smearing conservatives, particularly Republicans in Congress, as “racists” or “dangerous terrorists” whom the Democrats then threaten to expel from Congress.
The one tactic is a violation of the First Amendment and the second is a violation of Americans’ voting rights, which is why Carlson referred to what is happening as “the most sweeping and audacious assault on civil liberties in American history.”
What is going on?
According to Carlson, this is all happening because the Democrats are attempting a “power grab” that is being complicated by the rise of populism. “No, the Democratic Party exists to accumulate power, all of it,” Carlson said. “Some is never enough. The impulse is to control everything. So that’s what they’re trying to do now amidst the chaos and tumult.”
The problem, though, according to Carlson, is that people are starting to figure out that their political leaders are not on their side. This, says Carlson, has led to an instability that the Democrats in charge are only making worse.
“In the face of all of that, the people in charge are doing the single stupidest, most counterproductive thing that any leader could do in the face of a populist movement,” Carlson said. “They’re refusing to admit their role in the decline. They’re refusing to admit their failures, and instead, they are blaming the people they have failed. They’re literally declaring war on their own population.”
Carlson said that there is still a way to fix the situation:
In a democracy, the first step to unifying the country is always the same. Leaders enter into a power-sharing agreement with the people they lead. They do the obvious thing, they stop lying to their own citizens, they stop attacking them, and they respect their culture. They don’t try to control people’s beliefs. That’s not their role. They treat their own citizens like adults, meaning they treat them fairly. And above all, they cut the public in on some of the fruits of the country’s success.
But, according to Carlson, we are currently heading in the opposite direction, and, if the Democrats in charge continue down this path, we can expect the radicalization of many American citizens, which, of course, would be bad news for our country. Watch Carlson below:
