Tuesday on Fox News, network host Tucker Carlson offered a searing indictment of the left-wing, Maoist-like cultural revolution sweeping across America in the aftermath of black Minneapolis resident George Floyd’s death at the hands of the police. And to most effectively convey his point, he used himself as an example.
During Monday’s broadcast of FNC’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” he’d argued that the ongoing cultural revolution has nothing to do with black lives or so-called “social justice.” Rather, it’s about increasing the power of the Democrat Party.
In response to his segment, the Maoist-like revolution’s mobs came after him, labeling him a “dangerous racist” and demanding he be fired. But unlike the nation’s many cowards, he’s chosen to not bend the knee.
Listen to the whole segment below:
“The question is how should you respond to this, and the answer is with courage. You’re an American, you live in a free country, you have nothing to be ashamed of, you don’t have to apologize for crimes you did not commit, you have the absolute right to say exactly what you believe is true — that is your birthright,” he proudly declared.
“Now is the time to affirm that right out loud. When enough decent people rise from their knees and stand down the mob, the mob evaporates. These people are not warriors; they are vampires — they melt in the light. When we show them we are not afraid, they go away.”
That said, he continued, it’s important to understand whom this mob is comprised of, what it is they seek and how it is they came to be.
“They’re mostly faceless political agitators who exist primarily online. They’re 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 demands are,” Carlson said.
“The country’s defenses have been badly weakened by decades of relentless propaganda, all of it designed to make us feel that we have no right to stand up for ourselves, to stand up for our country. We are too sinful to resist. We deserve whatever we get. Shut up and take it, America.”
While the propaganda used to exist on the fringes of society, it now dominates mainstream culture and can be found in classrooms, on so-called “news” networks, in the world of sports, in government and even in children’s cartoons.

“America is a very bad place and it’s your fault, so no matter what happens, no matter what they do to you, when you grow up you have no right to complain — that’s the message, and it starts very young,” Carlson added.
No right indeed, no matter how frivolous the allegations against you, ergo why at UCLA one professor has been suspended for not exempting black students from final exams, and another professor is being investigated for reading Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail” to his students and showing them a documentary on lynching.
“The lecturer also showed a portion of a documentary which included graphic images and descriptions of lynching, with a narrator who quoted the n-word in explaining the history of lynching. Many students expressed distress and anger regarding the lecture and the lecturer’s response to their concerns during the lecture,” a complaint by the university’s top leaders reportedly reads.
Meanwhile, a Mississippi nurse was fired for referring to looters and rioters as “thugs,” a California radio show host was fired for saying “All Lives Matter,” a Catholic high school teacher was fired for criticizing Black Lives Matter, etc., etc., etc.
At the same time, shows are being canceled, movies are being pulled and books are being burnt because they go against the mob’s doctrines.
“Who are we!?” Carlson asked as the segment continued. “Well at this point, we’re becoming North Korea. We now believe in bloodguilt, we punish people for the sins of their relatives, we don’t allow individuals to have private thoughts, we hurt anyone who disagrees with orthodoxy.”
“We demand that the innocent plead guilty to things we know they didn’t do and then read their confessions in public to prove they’ve been re-educated — and then we brag about doing all of this.”
Case in point:

In North Korea, everybody must think like and abide by the decrees of the Workers’ Party. The same thing appears to be happening here, except in the U.S. everybody must now think like and abide by the rules of the Democrat Party.
“Obviously something terrifying has descended on America, and it’s easy to see if you stand back,” Carlson continued. “What has happened. Terrible ideas suddenly have free reign. Why? Because no one pushes back.”
“Those ideas are met with supine weakness. You’ve seen it happen a thousand times. … What’s changed, what’s brand-new is that no one in charge has the stones to disagree, so the rhetoric gets even crazier.”
That’s why proposals to “disband the police” are now considered serious policy positions.
The Minneapolis Police Department has proven themselves beyond reform.
It’s time to disband them and reimagine public safety in Minneapolis.

So where is all this leading us? Likely down a path not dissimilar to the one envisioned in George Orwell’s classic novel, “1984.”
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten … every statue and street and building has been renamed, every date has altered. And that process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right,” the book reads.
