In the face of recent announcements from companies dropping their ads from his show, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson was unfazed by the liberal thought police as he delivered a 17-minute-plus opening monologue Monday night speaking truth to the power of the Black Lives Matter movement. He called out their bullying tactics, manipulation of our moral values, and the brutalization of anyone who even offered mild criticism of the group.
At one point, speaking about the rules of our political system, Carlson noted that “Black Lives Matter wants to run the country, therefore, you can freely criticize Black Lives Matter.” “If the leaders of Black Lives Matter are political actors, and they are, then by definition you are allowed to have any opinion you want to have about them,” he said before ominously arguing that the rules had been changed.
“Imagine a world where you are punished for questioning the behavior of the president or for insulting your local mayor. You probably can't imagine that. It's too bizarre. It’s un-American. But that’s where we are right now,” he warned. “You can be fired from your job if you disobey. Many Americans have been.”
And he had evidence, people who had lost their jobs and called racist for offering just mild criticism of the group and their tactics.
