Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Wednesday launched into a critique of the Biden regime’s habit of scolding Americans for not marching in lock-step with its vision for the country.

Namely, the host said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that current policy in America makes it evident that “Ukraine’s borders are sacred- unlike her own – and if we’re good people, we’ll recognize that and not ask any questions.”

“It’s not an argument. It’s a lecture,” he added.

Carlson described what he perceives as a lack of subtlety coming from Washington when it comes to questioning the priorities of the U.S. government.

“Shut up, prole! Take the shot! Surrender that civil liberty! Pledge allegiance to Ukraine, or else you’re a dangerous tool of Vladimir Putin,” he mocked.

Although Democrats currently control both the legislature and the executive branches of the federal government, Carlson said Republicans must share the blame when it comes to U.S. failures in domestic policy, as all eyes at the leadership level are seemingly trained on the shiny object of conflict in Europe rather than on America.

“You’ll note that not a single Republican leader has stood up to point out how insane all of this is, and how completely divorced it is from anything that American voters actually care about,” he remarked.

He joked, “You listen to Mitch McConnell – the leader of Republicans in the Senate – you would think what the average, say, welder back in his home state of Kentucky really wants, more than a pay raise, or an affordable vacation, or decent schools for his children, what he really wants is an end to Russian aggression against the brave people of Eastern Ukraine.”

As Americans continue to face hikes in the price of consumer goods and services – particularly fuel – Carlson pointed to the arrogance of the protected class, which includes the media, and their demands that Americans straighten up and accept the sacrifices inherent in “defending our values.” Sacrifices, he says, that will not be felt by them but by regular Americans.

He spoke also of the oft-heard notion of spreading democracy throughout the world, but that Ukraine, he says, is actually not a democracy in the literal sense.

If you subvert the meaning of a word as fundamental as “democracy,” maybe you can tamper with the way we live here in the United States, just spitballing for a second. So Ukraine, to be technical, is not a democracy. Democracies don’t arrest political opponents and they don’t shutdown opposition media, both of which Ukraine has done. And by the way, Ukraine is a pure client state of the United States State Department — again, that’s fine. We are not mad about that, go ahead and run Ukraine if you want if you think you can do a better job than Ukraine is, just don’t tell us it’s democracy.
