Tucker Carlson’s First Full Speech Since Fox Exit – Powerful! – Watch
Tucker Carlson made his first in-person speech since leaving Fox and he came out swinging against issues that threaten America, and of course, Fox News.
The Epoch Times reported that Carlson spoke in Oxford, Alabama, before a full house at the 1,215-seat Oxford Performing Arts Centre on Thursday at a private fundraiser. It was organized by Rainbow Omega, a faith-based nonprofit that supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Carlson said he agreed to speak at the event six months ago.
“When I accepted this speech,” he joked, I didn’t realize how much free time I would have.”
The former Fox host warned about “manufactured” political and social issues he believes can lead to the “end of democracy” and the “enslavement” of the American people.
“American politics is supposed to be designed to improve people’s lives, but what is the point of it actually? As we’re worried about these big abstract problems in faraway places, or claiming we can control the weather or whatever we’re claiming, there are kids with developmental disabilities who have aging parents, and the parents are legit terrified about what happens when they pass.
I’m starting to really believe that the divisions that we see in our society are pretty much manufactured,” Carlson said.
Carlson focused on the differences between the first and second terms of former President Barack Obama and his handling of race in America.
“Obama’s first term was how we were going to get past race. I didn’t vote for the guy, but everybody I knew was excited, and so was I. We elect some guy I disagree with, but we get to the point where we stop picking at the scab and move forward as one country. Why wouldn’t I be for that? As a Christian, I was totally for that.”
But that changed in Obama’s second term, Carlson correctly said:
“Oh no, we’re not post-racial. All we’re going to talk about is race and make each other hate each other on the basis of race. I don’t think most Americans hate each other on the basis of their ethnic differences. I think a lot of that is just a lie, actually, designed to distract people.
I just think that at some point, you have to call it what it is—which is lying. And lying with a very specific purpose, which is to avert your gaze, to pull your attention away from the things that matter. That’s not news coverage. That’s just classic propaganda.”
Carson ended with this truth about the effect all this will have on democracy:
“The first effect is to, kind of, end democracy. The whole idea of democracy is based on the understanding that the people who vote will have some knowledge of what they’re voting on—what the real issues are–they’ll be informed citizens.
But when the media industry is collectively excluding issues that matter, such as crime, immigration, and the economy, the population becomes uninformed, which undermines a fundamental part of democracy.
The harm brought by the media industry is compounded by a lack of authenticity from the entire federal government, including politicians from both political parties.
If they can’t even tell you the truth about a communicable disease that’s killing people, they’re actually lying to you about that. You can’t believe anything. Well, that’s very bewildering. That’s actually a form of chaos, which is the one condition people can’t handle.”
