In a rousing editorial that opened his FNC show, Jesse Watters called upon the American people to overcome their complacency as he sees it. The country should demand accountability from the D.C. Swamp that is, among other things, responsible for the filled-with-pork $900 billion so-called COVID relief bill in Congress that was written by lobbyists and special interest groups.

“You get the government you deserve. We elect these people and rarely demand change. And when they sabotage a president who actually changed things, we don’t rebel, we don’t march, we don’t resist. We watch it on TV.

“Our form of protest is just changing the channel…We used to storm the ‘castle’ over abuses of power like this. Now we just raid the fridge. So in 2021, let’s relight that great American spirit. Let’s stand up to this den of thieves because they’ll just keep robbing us blind until we actually do something about it,” the Fox News host concluded his “Watter’s Words” monologue, which is embedded below in two parts.

Watters provided a litany of various forms of wasteful spending in the stimulus bill, including money sent overseas when ordinary, hard-working Americans are suffering. “A million here, a billion there, while Americans scrape by because politicians won’t let them work. They close our restaurants and sneak out for a five-course meal while nobody is watching,” Watters noted, alluding to the long list of Democrat elected officials who have been caught flouting economy-crushing lockdown rules that they have imposed on their constituents.

“Many Americans just sit there and take it. Why? This isn’t who we are. That’s not who are forefathers were. It’s not the American spirit,” the host of Watters’ World declared.

“When business owners couldn’t take it anymore and reopened, so they could put food on the table for their families, politicians had them arrested…Gym owners, pub owners, arrested, not a peep,” Watters continued on the complacency theme. “A few lockdown protests pop up here and there, but the media makes them out to be domestic terrorists. And we just nod our heads.”

The Fox News host pointed out that China has yet to be held to account for unleashing COVID on the world. “Has China paid the price? Have the people demanded our leaders do something about this? No. We’re just here on our iPhones, made in China, ordering takeout because we are told we can’t go out to dinner because of a virus also made in China.”

He also recalled how local governments that enforced shelter-in-place edicts abandoned social distancing requirements when riots broke out. “They didn’t protect you when you need protection. What did you do? Nothing much.”

Part of the problem, Watters implied, is that too many Americans are consuming fake news, but “we still keep watching.”

“Collusion hoaxes, post office hoaxes, impeachment hoaxes, gang rape hoaxes. They told us the protests were mostly peaceful as fires burned buildings in the background. Anonymous sources, webs of deceit and censorship. The truth doesn’t matter to these people anymore. But we’re still squinting to see the truth in their lies and follow every head fake down a rabbit hole.”

In addition to the Democrats and their sycophants in the media, Watters focused some of his ire on the GOP establishment for failing to support President Trump in challenging the outcome of Election 2020 on the basis of fraud.

“The Republican establishment just fades into the background….People in your party you thought were in your foxhole went AWOL. After everything Donald Trump had accomplished for the country and for the Republican Party, the Republican establishment went silent when we needed it the most.”

Watters summarized the pending stimulus bill as “credit-card therapy for the insecure, guilty congressman. It’s our money; it should go to Americans first after the year we’ve had.”
