An angry Tucker Carlson opened his Fox News program on Monday night, ripping into state, local, and federal government leaders for their complete lack of authority – moral and otherwise – during the waves of chaos and destruction rippling through dozens of American cities.
“When the mobs came, they abandoned us,” Carlson said in the monologue. “The nation went up in flames this weekend. No one in charge stood up to save America. Our leaders dithered and they cowered, and they openly sided with the destroyers, and in many cases they egged them on. Later, they will deny doing any of this and they’re denying it now.
“You know the truth because you saw it happen,” he continued. “This is how nations collapse, when no one in authority keeps order. When so many in our professional class encourage violence, American citizens are forced to defend themselves and they have no choice. No one else is going to defend them — they know that now.”
Carlson said it was reprehensible to watch elected officials not only abandon their duty to keep civil order but to, in many instances, actually stick up for the rioters and looters as if there could be any excuse for their violent, destructive behavior. As if there could be any justification for burning down businesses and throwing bricks at police.
“The worst people in our society have taken control,” he said. “They did nothing to build the country and now they are tearing it down. They’re rushing us towards mass suicide. How do we respond? We must protect ourselves and our families and once again we have no choice but to do that. But we cannot allow ourselves to become like they are.”
It’s been sad, disgusting, pathetic…and predictable to watch Democrat governors and congresspeople respond to this madness. And if you aren’t sickened enough by their reaction, you can take a stroll through Reddit’s liberal hivemind to really begin losing your faith in humanity. Maybe top it all off with some time on leftist Twitter. It’s enough to make you wish you could have hitched a ride on the SpaceX rocket.
The media/leftist cabal in this country has pummeled their “black people can do no wrong” message into the culture so hard and so well that everyone is now running around finding every excuse in the book for this destruction. Oh, it’s not them, it’s someone else. It’s Trump supporters. It’s white supremacists. And then, when the evidence is incontrovertible: Well, who can blame them – they have a right to be angry!
Maybe they do and maybe they don’t. Either way, this has to stop. One way or the other.
