The Democrats’ post-Trump hyperbole, panic and authoritarianism proves that what truly frightens them is America’s growing populism, not former President Donald Trump’s alleged “fascism,” according to Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

In a lengthy monologue Friday on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the host wondered why Democrats are continuing to behave erratically — sometimes even more-so than before — despite their “fascistic” bogeyman finally being ousted from office.

“The single biggest mystery …. is why Democrats became so vicious after they won. Joe Biden got the White House, his party took Congress, you’d think they would be thrilled, you’d think they will be celebrating, but no,” his monologue began.

Indeed, Democrats are ramping up for a new “domestic war on terror,” pushing for a purge of dissenting voices and, according to Carlson, committing “the most sweeping and audacious assault on civil liberties in American history.”

But why? Partly for power.

Listen to part one of Carlson’s monologue below:

“On a most basic level, it’s a power grab. … The Democrat Party doesn’t exist to serve abstract principles of liberty or justice or the Bill of Rights. Nor is its primary goal of improving the lives of its voters,” the Fox News host explained.

“If you’ve been to Detroit, you know that’s true. No, the Democrat Party exists to accumulate power. To some, it’s never enough, the impulse to control everything. That’s what they are trying to do now,” he said.

But, he added, there’s more to it. Just look at what’s happening:

  • There’s a push to make the fencing/wall around the Capitol permanent.
  • Thousands of “stormtroopers” have been stationed around the Capitol.
  • Democrats are prepping to attack the Second Amendment.
  • Second Amendment-supporting Republicans have been smeared as an “enemy.”
  • Some Democrats are accusing their GOP colleagues of murder.
  • Etc.

If you’re sensing a theme here, there is, in fact, a theme. The theme is panic, fear, and it’s real. You’re looking at leaders who are genuinely afraid of the people they are supposed to be leading,” Carlson continued.

Here’s the really interesting thing: They seem that much more afraid now that Donald Trump has left office. With Donald Trump gone, they sense that a period of actual populism has begun, and they may be right,” he added.

Just this week, left-wingers and right-wingers united in shared rage against Wall Street and its proxies in the media world and corporate world.

Americans are angry and fed-up, but nobody in the political realm — particularly those on the Democrat side — has any viable solutions.

And so, instead of embracing the populism, they demean it, they disparage it, they link it to white supremacy, they complain about “privilege,” they demand diversity, etc.

But “those aren’t real solutions,” Carlson noted.

“They are smoke screens, diversion tactics. Populism starts when people start to figure that out, and they have. And that’s why everything suddenly feels so unstable right now, because once again, real populism is brewing,” he added.

Listen to part two of Carlson’s monologue below:

“In the face of all of that, the people in charge are doing the single stupidest, most counterproductive thing that any leader could do in the face of a populist movement. They are refusing to admit their role in the decline,” the host continued.

“They are refusing to admit their failures, and instead they are blaming the people they have failed. They are literally declaring war on their own population. How is that going to end? And if you think we are overstating it, we are not,” Carlson contended.

The examples are legion and include Democrat politicians, media figures and former intelligence officials calling for new domestic terror laws to be applied against “domestic terrorists,” labeling anyone with a dissenting opinion an “extremist” and “white supremacist,” calling their Republican colleagues “murderers,” etc.

As a specific example, Carlson pointed to disgraced former CIA Director John Brennan’s recent remarks about how those with dissenting opinions — people whom he labeled “religious extremists, authoritarians, fascists, bigots, racists, Nativists, even libertarians” — need to be targeted like al-Qaeda terrorists were.

The remark was so extreme, ironically enough, that former Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said that Brennan and his ilk are the real domestic terrorists.

“The former CIA director has isolated the real problem, and the real problem is you. According to Brennan, anyone who disagrees with, say, Susan Rice, is worse than Osama bin Laden and more dangerous,” Carlson continued.

“These people, meaning you, have the weapons. These terrorists. And by terrorists, Brennan means tens of millions of American citizens who might have a firearm at home and didn’t vote for Joe Biden. They are the threat, and we need to hunt them like we hunted Al Qaeda,” he said.

He also pointed to CNN suggesting that American citizens are more dangerous than foreign terrorists, and Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez smearing her GOP colleagues as “white supremacist sympathizers.”

Carlson then asked his viewers to ponder where this rhetoric is leading the country.

“When you tell people they are evil because of how they vote or how they look, and our leaders are definitely telling them that every single day, when you train a population to tally Americans by race and ethnicity first and foremost, keep track of people’s genetic background every time you see a picture, what effect does that have?” he said.

“If you do all of those things, what kind of country do you get at the end? You get a scary, divided country — the kind of country where you need steel fencing outside of the national legislature. It’s very obvious where all of this is going, and it’s very, very bad,” he added.

And perhaps that’s exactly what Democrats want …
