Backlash is building after 14 Republican senators led by Mitch McConnell joined gun-grabbing Democrats to advance a bill that will move the nation closer to the political left’s ultimate dream of gun confiscation, only under the pretense of red flag laws that will be abused to target conservatives.
One of those who unloaded on the treacherous gaggle of RINOs was Fox News host Tucker Carlson, and he did it with both barrels.
In an epic opening monologue running nearly 18 minutes on Wednesday’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the host excoriated GOP senators for their lifeline to enormously unpopular President Joe Biden who is distrusted and despised by an increasing number of Americans who have seen him take a wrecking ball to their way of life and to the country itself which may never recover from the damage that he has caused with the complicity of Senate Republicans.
“Joe Biden is the weakest, most unpopular leader of our lifetime. He’s also the most destructive. Now, that’s not a partisan assessment. That’s not the opinion of a right-wing talk show. That is the view of the overwhelming majority of American voters,” Carlson began.
“Biden’s malicious ineptitude is so overwhelming that it is single-handedly changing American politics and everywhere there are signs of it, signs of a massive generational realignment taking shape, taking shape in response to the disasters this administration has created,” he said. “The old coalitions are crumbling before our eyes. Suddenly we’re seeing Hispanic voters, African and Middle Eastern immigrants, as well as huge numbers of American-born young men, all running at remarkable speed from Joe Biden and the anti-human corporate neoliberalism he represents.”
Carlson then used the example of Republican Mayra Flores’ special election win in a deep blue Texas district last week to point out that Hispanics are increasingly rejecting the Democratic Party, also noting that Biden is rapidly losing black support, as well as public opinion as they sour on the ruling party and its leader.
“At the very moment that Joe Biden is at his weakest, months before a pivotal midterm election, Republicans are propping him up. They are saving Biden from himself,” Carlson said.
“Since the day Biden was elected, Republicans in Washington have taken Biden’s side on virtually every significant item in his policy agenda,” he said. “That would include COVID restrictions, vaccine mandates, transgender ideology in school, sanctions against China, the January 6 charade, free speech, civil liberties, spying by the Intel agencies, preserving the big tech monopolies, the anti-white race politics of CRT and Juneteenth, border enforcement and energy policy, and above all, the administration’s signature issue – its lunatic and reckless support for the war on Ukraine. Republicans are all-in.”
“In fact, they’re abetting what he’s doing. Effectively they’re coming to Joe Biden’s rescue. Why are they doing this? Why do you think they’re doing it? Because fundamentally, they’re on Joe Biden’s side. Whatever stylistic differences Republicans in Washington may have with Democrats, and there are some, in the end, Mitch McConnell has far more in common with Chuck Schumer than he does with your average Republican voter.”
Carlson added, “Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer are united in their fear of populism and in their gut-level loathing of the American public and they’re not alone. What Washington fears most is democracy – that is letting voters have what they want. That’s not allowed. Republicans and Democrats have formed a uniparty specifically to prevent it. You see this everywhere, but you see it most clearly in the gun control legislation that’s in the Senate right now,” Carlson said, emphasizing that the destruction of America is a bipartisan venture.
Turning to the gun control bill, Carlson likened the cowardice of police in Uvalde who failed to take action while 19 children and their two teachers were slaughtered to the cowardice of the GOP leadership.
Carlson tore into McConnell and Texas Senator John Cornyn who took the lead on the collocative effort with Democrats on the red flag laws.

“Now, these laws allow authorities to seize firearms for people who have committed no crimes. That’s a violation of due process. It’s unconstitutional, but the Republican Party is all for it. The bill also makes it harder for people between the ages of 18 and 21 to buy a gun. They can go fight in Ukraine and Republicans would like them to, but they can’t get a gun in this country,” he said as he continued his calling out of the GOP senators.
Wrapping up his monologue, Carlson noted that several of the Biden appeasing senators are from conservative states, effectively stabbing their own voters in the back.
“So again, if you care about democracy, you have to ask how many of those voters went to the polls in the last election, hoping above all, to elect leaders who support gun confiscation of law-abiding Americans, red flag laws? Not very many. So, what we’re seeing here, to be clear, is a subversion of democracy,” he said.
“You get to vote for whoever you want in this country. It can be a Republican or a Democrat, a liberal or conservative, but in the end, you’re going to get the very same thing every time. You’re going to get a weaker U.S. dollar. You’re going to get more pointless foreign wars and you’re going to get a lower standard of living for the middle class,” he added. “In America, as in Western Europe, there’s only one flavor of politics allowed, and that is corporate politics just as there’s only one flavor of media allowed, which is corporate media and those two forces work together toward the same goal: More power for them, less power for you; fewer families, more dollar stores; less choice, more coercion; less diversity, more sameness.”
“Sound familiar?” he asked. “That’s the Chinese model. But for Mitch McConnell, whose family, like so many families in Washington, has become rich from its ties to the Chinese government, it seems normal. But it’s not normal.”
“This level of disconnection from what voters actually want is dangerous and it’s destabilizing,” he said. “Self-government is what keeps countries calm and stable. Democracy is a pressure relief valve. Don’t storm the Bastille, vote. If you take that away or if you strip it of its meaning, people become angry and frustrated and over time they become revolutionary and everyone in Washington knows this.”
“So, no wonder they want to disarm you. You can’t have guns because they no longer trust you and they no longer trust you because they know they’ve betrayed you. This is how democracy dies, not in darkness, but in plain sight, live on C-SPAN,” Carlson concluded.
