Tucker Carlson took Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) to the proverbial woodshed over stirring up divisiveness and animosity in Congress by referring to her “dark fantasy designed to terrify people.” He spoke out against “this now-official line that the American government is now at war with its own population.” This follows House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s referral to the “enemy within” when speaking about Republican House members.
Carlson hit the nail on the head Friday as he forcefully spoke against “power-made members of Congress dividing people by race so they can conquer.” He referenced “white fragility” and “white supremacy” in a “Tucker Carlson Tonight” monologue that basically proclaimed that if Democrats don’t stop the hateful hyperbole, bad things are likely to happen.
He played a clip of Ocasio-Cortez claiming that “there are legitimate white supremacist sympathizers that sit at the heart and at the core of the Republican caucus in the House of Representatives… There’s no consequences for racism, no consequences for misogyny, no consequences for insurrection. And no consequence means that they condone it. It means that that silence is acceptance, and they want it because they know that it is a core animating political energy for them.”
This is the same woman who accused Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) of literally trying to kill her because he chose to address electoral fraud. When Cruz backed AOC’s stance on going after Robinhood in the GameStop uproar, she said the following to him: “I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there’s common ground, but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out,” AOC tweeted at Cruz on Thursday. “Happy to work w/ almost any other GOP that aren’t trying to get me killed. In the meantime if you want to help, you can resign.”

Republicans demanded she apologize for that verbal bile but she has not.
Cruz stated that “there’s a lot of partisan anger and rage on the Democratic side” when he was asked about her vicious accusation.
“It’s, it’s not healthy for our country, it’s certainly not conducive of healing or unity, but everyone has to decide how they want to interact with others,” Cruz said.
Then Ocasio-Cortez doubled down: “Oh, there’s anger?” she tweeted. “Now why would there be anger that Cruz amplified known lies about our election that fueled an insurrection that cost ppl’s lives?”
“What does he think the logical response to his lies should be? A hug?” she snarled. “Maybe there’s anger bc his actions deserve accountability.”
Anything and everything, no matter how outrageous, to vilify the Republicans.

The rhetoric coming from Democrats aimed at their Republican counterparts has reached a fever pitch of hatred and distrust. Carlson’s point is that such a political environment produces radicals and violence which no one wants.
The Fox News host played the clip and then declared, “That woman is a tool of corporate power posing as a truth-teller. Look at her campaign contributions. Who is supporting her campaigns? People who want to change the subject away from economics to identity politics.” Many Americans, and politicians for that matter, would wholeheartedly agree with that assessment.
“Think about the effect on the people listening,” Carlson warned. “’Fealty to white supremacist organizations as a political tool. What does that even mean? We are not sure who she’s talking about.”
Carlson went on to say that Ocasio-Cortez is pushing a “dark fantasy designed to terrify people and make them easier to command,” and then added, “Talk like that from our leaders, from our elected officials, is going to turn some of our citizens very, very radical. You don’t want to live in a country with very, very radical people.”
Earlier in the show, he also referenced how D.C. has become militarized suddenly and that a permanent fence is going around the Capitol. The left seeks to silence those who even speak out against them. Ironically, Carlson noted, the Democrats are now more in fear than when Trump was in office.
