The Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson had an important message for Americans this week.
Breitbart reports that, on Wednesday’s program, Carlson warned viewers that the riot that took place at the Capitol building will be used to take away the rights of Americans.
Carlson began the segment by noting the shift that has taken place here in America: people have gone from believing that “they can change things by voting” to believing that “their democracy is fraudulent . . . that voting is a charade, that the system is rigged.”
Carlson noted that, as Wednesday demonstrated, we are in an unstable situation that is likely to only get worse as time goes on. And, one of the things that will make it worse, according to Carlson, is “illegitimate leadership . . . crack[ing] down on the population.”
“Rather than trying to change their minds to convince them and reassure them the system is real, that the democracy works as you would do if you cared about the country or the people who live here, our new leaders will try to silence them,” Carlson said.
He added that the violence that took place at the Capitol building “will be used by the people taking power to justify stripping you of the rights were born with as an American.”
“Your right to speak without being censored, your right to assemble, to not be spied upon, to make a living, to defend your family, most critically,” Carlson said. “These are the most basic and ancient freedoms that we have. They are why we live here in the first place. They’re why we are proud to be Americans. They are what make us different, and they are all now in peril.”
Carlson implied that this approach will only lead to more violent situations like the one that happened at the Capitol building.
A case study
We didn’t have to wait too long for Carlson to be proved right here, at least with regard to the left using what happened on Wednesday to silence their opposition.
Over the past couple of days, President Trump has been permanently banned by a number of social media sites including Twitter and Facebook. They did so under the guise of preventing the sort of violence that happened at the Capitol.
It’s all happening just as Carlson predicted. It’s time for Americans to let their leaders know that this cannot continue. If it does, we – Democratic Americans included – can say goodbye to our rights.
