Fox News host Tucker Carlson took the issue of the war in Ukraine head-on during his show Monday, positing that despite all the faux moral outrage on the left, Democrats really don’t care about the issue and have instead “unleashed something really dark” in the U.S., using the tragedy for political gain.

Carlson started by addressing the fact that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy was mulling over declaring his country neutral last week and was considering dropping its bid to join NATO which might, in turn, cause Russian President Vladimir Putin to stop the invasion. He pointed out that may be a very good thing in the end.

“So if accepting the status quo, going with the way things already were and were always going to be, if doing that convinces Putin to stop killing Ukrainians, and spares Ukraine from total and complete destruction, maybe it’s not a crazy idea, maybe Zelenskyy is onto something, he certainly thought about it a lot. Maybe we ought to congratulate Zelenskyy for acting wisely on behalf of the country he leads. This could be a win for him and for the entire world,” Carlson posited.

“Putin invaded Ukraine because he’s bad. End of conversation. And anyone who says otherwise, anyone who suggests there might be a way out of this disaster short of total war, anyone who says that is immediately denounced as a tool of Russian propaganda,” he pointed out referring to the myriad of attacks aimed at him for his stance on the war.

Carlson has been accused of being treasonous by numerous Democrats and a couple of squishy Republicans as well. However, he’s no wallflower and is willing to go toe to toe with those who smear him.

“Oh, almost treasonous. Siding with Putin. Who is siding with Putin? I haven’t seen anybody do that. I’ve seen a few people try to side with the United States, and that says Mitt Romney, a man who got four deferments to keep himself out of the Vietnam War, that is almost treasonous,” he snarked.

“What’s so interesting, we don’t want to pick on Mitt Romney here, it’s too easy, but it does seem like if you take a step back that the very same people who spent the last say two years telling us that this country, our country, is inherently sinful and racist, and disgusting and born in iniquity, those same people, the ones who lecture you about how there is something inherently wrong with you if you live here, were born here. Those same people have been the very quickest, the very first to whip around and accuse anyone who wants to save the United States from yet another pointless war, a war that they would never fight in or their children, accused those people of being unpatriotic,” the conservative host asserted.

“Now Tulsi Gabbard is the former member of Congress who currently serves as a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve and unlike Mitt Romney, has been deployed, quote: ‘Tulsi Gabbard is parroting false Russian propaganda. Her treasonous lies may well cost lives.’ Treasonous lies have cost lives potentially. So you’re betraying your country and committing murder,” Carlson said, noting the slander by Romney against Tulsi Gabbard.

“So what exactly did Tulsi Gabbard do? Did she call for a violent overthrow of the United States government? Did she come out and pledge allegiance to Putin? Did she get a Cyrillic tattoo on her neck? No, she didn’t,” he quipped. “What she said, is we have a problem. Here is how we know. She cited publicly available information and said, we should probably deal with that problem. But I guess, here you have Mitt Romney who is a consultant for God’s sakes, accusing someone who has been in the Army for nearly two decades of treason.”

“People didn’t use to talk that way. Treason is a death penalty offense. It’s absurd on its face. But if you watch the video that got Mitt Romney to call a fellow American treasonous and suggest she was committing murder, it really makes your head spin,” he commented.

“Yes, she hates our country because she is worried that a pathogen might escape from a biolab and hurt people. There is no recent precedent for that, so she is clearly listening to Alex Jones too much and she is treasonous,” Carlson added. “Actually, everything that Tulsi Gabbard said, as you know, is true. It is not a Republican issue, it is not a Democrat issue, it is a factual issue, and even in war, truth is a defense. In fact, it’s the only defense.”

“Reason isn’t part of the way people are thinking now. Everybody in leadership has completely lost the ability to think beyond the next tweet. Who is thinking about tomorrow, or next month, or 20 years from now? Not one person and anyone who tries is an agent of Putin,” he continued.

He went on to make his case against leftists, “Keith Olbermann is always at the cutting edge of things like this. He was watching ‘The View’ today. He doesn’t have a lot else to do and he responded to that segment by writing this on Twitter. “They (us) are Russian assets and there is a war. There’s a case for detaining them militarily. Trials are a sign of good faith and patience on the part of democracy.”

“So, we’re at war with Russia. We must send you to the gulag because freedom. Because democracy, the one thing democracies don’t have patience for is dissenting views from its own citizens, particularly citizens who sincerely hope and pray for the best for their own country. Those people must be imprisoned militarily. That’s what he’s saying and no one’s disagreeing,” Carlson elaborated.

“All of permanent Washington, every orifice of the national media, all fully aligned to push a single message. When was the last time that happened? Ought to make you nervous,” he warned.

As Carlson dissected what the left sees as an issue unifying the country, he went on to point out the hypocrisy of Democrats.

“They don’t care about Ukraine, a lot of these people, any more than they cared about George Floyd. They use tragedy, George Floyd’s death, the tragic invasion of Ukraine, for domestic political purposes. This has unleashed something really dark in the United States,” he accurately concluded.
