Tucker Carlson warned that the United States is witnessing a “broad and powerful attack” on the nation’s founding principle of absolute equality under the law.
The Fox News host unpacked the emerging narrative that is focusing on “heredity and bloodguilt” rather than on the centuries-old standards which hold that all are created equal by God, addressing the two versions of the law in his opening monologue on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“If you’ve been paying attention recently and you probably have, you’ve likely sensed that something profound is happening to this country right now, something that could transform what America is. You can feel it happening,” Carlson began on Thursday.
Citing recent events like the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the police shooting of Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta that have sparked protests and calls for change, Carlson explained how Republicans appear to “believe this is a policy debate” while Democrats “know better than that.”
“They don’t lie to themselves for they understand there is a revolution in progress,” he said.
“Like all revolutions, the point is to destroy the system and replace it with something new. But replace it with what? That is the question the rest of us should be asking right now,” he continued, contrasting the current system which sees all with equal moral value and the emerging antithesis of that ideal.
“Now for the first time in our history, we are witnessing a broad and powerful attack on the principle of equality. Daily we are told that people are not, in fact, all created equal,” he said.
“Some Americans are guilty, some are innocent. Nothing can change this,. This was all determined at birth,” Carlson added, expounding on the narrative. “People in favored groups must be held to one standard and those in disfavored groups, the morally tainted ones, must be held to another standard.”
He explained that the system he described is familiar because it was “very common in history,” wondering what happened to the voices who used to stand up and condemn ideology that threatened the foundation of America.
“Look around. Is anyone in power defending absolute equality under the law? If there was ever a time to remind America that we all have equal value under God, that time is right now,” he said. “But no, no one in charge is saying that. Our leaders are cowards when we need them to be brave. They are muddled when we need them to think clearly. It’s possible they no longer even believe in equality.”
Racial tension is rising in the country “by design,” Carlson contended, turning to highlight the “flagrant double standard'” of the COVID-19 lockdowns.
“The coronavirus lockdowns had nothing to do with race or white and black, thank God,” he said. “Quarantines are instead scientific, purely a matter of public health.
“That’s what they told us and we believed them. We sat passively as they destroyed our country’s economy, as they indicted Americans for trying to make a living. And then the … riots started and we learned it was all fake. The very same officials who threatened us … for going outside urged their own voters to flood the streets, and they did, and no one was punished. How could this happen?” Carlson asked.
“Forcing people to accept mistreatment is a time-tested way to subdue them,” he said. “‘Of course we are not treating you fairly,’ they are telling us. ‘You don’t deserve fairness. You deserve what you get.’ That’s the message. And after a while, the population accepts this. Some believe it. They blame themselves. That’s the goal. But we should never accept it.”
He emphasized that equality under the law “is all we have.”
“Laws are designed to protect the weak, not the strong,” the host said. “At the moment, the people leading this revolution against our system are strong. That’s why they are trying to subvert our laws. If they succeed, there will be nothing to protect the rest of us in this country. We cannot let them do that.
“In the United States of America, all of us are equal under the law. Period,” he concluded. “Say that as loud as you can.”
