Tucker Carlson: We Cannot Let Democrats
Run This Country Because They Hate It

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 7/7/2020 2:59:02 AM

Monday, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson opened his show by giving President Donald Trump’s speech at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota high marks. He then pointed to the Democrat backlash and concluded that Democrats and their allies in the media hate the country.He alluded to remarks made by presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) to bolster that point. Carlson then posed the question: Could the left in America lead a country that it hates?“So what to make of all of this,” Carlson said. “It’s long been considered out-of-bounds to question a person’s patriotism. It’s a very strong charge,

Frankly there are more than a few "NeverTrumpers" that fall into the same category. It might be better to just look at the 'Deep State' politicians.

Like I said in 2006, when it was looking like dim-0s would take over congress. I predicted we would go into recession quickly if that happened. Then in 2008, when it looked like obama would be elected I said if he is, we would go into a depression. There has NEVER been a time that dim-0s gained power when the country did not suffer from it.

I tend to believe it is liberals who are ruining America. My definition of liberal: a person who is defiant of God's Ten Commandments. It so happens, right now, that Democrats are trying very hard to take God out of society so I cast them as liberals. They vote party line and are put in place when they step out of those bounds. When you take a look at all of the problems facing America, most of them have stemmed from liberalism. Hollywood, sports entities, politicians, the media, big corporations, Nascar etc. have all had policies stemming from liberalism. Whatever brings in big money, go with it. Never mind the message. Now, they have to start looking at policies (when they should have been all along) and undo them if the crowd gets angry or violent.

The Democrats are running the country, even when we elected Republicans. Sessions recuses himself. Dr. Fauci shuts down the whole economy. Texas has a Republican Gov, but all the major cities are ran by Democrats. The major corporations have liberal CEO's and the policies of their stores are liberal. The school textbooks are all written by liberals. The media is 95% liberal. The technology companies are liberal. Every aspect of our lives is now ran by the Democrats. Every aspect is mandatory. The left does not allow choice. Technology now allows complete control of access to goods and services, if you do not comply. Our state legislatures and Congress only meet to vote lockstop for omnibus legislation written by Democrat activists, no debates, no representative input, representatives have not read what is in it. It does not matter what the court system rules. The Democrats will whittle away until they find a leftist judge that will rule their way, and John Roberts will rubber stamp it. Our news organizations are propagandists that are unmatched in the world. We live in a totalitarian system. The people have discovered that they control nothing about their lives. Going to work, health choices, who to hire or fire, whether the business can open. They don't have to take your property to take control of it. They don't have to take your liberty. They have taken control of your access to goods and services. We are living in a landfill and a hellhole. That is what liberalism has brought us.

Tucker has been spot on in all his opening monologues here lately. He gets it. He see what is happening in this country and is fearful for his children and grandchildren’s futures. We all are because this country does not in any way resemble the one in which we grew up. It is vastly different. Democrats have unleashed a godless political philosophy that has the power to destroy this, once blessed, nation. I will admit it’s not too different in my little town but there is an undercurrent of unrest whether it be others, like me, who are as concerned or some people with a dark motive. You can feel it though and it is disconcerting. I do believe this present turmoil we are experiencing is different. It is not just the friction between political ideology. It goes far deeper than that. It goes right to the core of the beliefs we hold. Actually, it is pretty cut and dried. You either were inspired by the President’s speech at Mt. Rushmore, or you were appalled. There were two very different philosophies revealed by which reaction you had to the speech. Democrats have for decades indoctrinated and dominated every aspect of our society: government, education, entertainment, politics, news media, corporations, and even the medical and military communities. Of course, they were horrified. The rest of the country was thrilled to hear our history proudly proclaimed and our great country given its due. One thing I believe we know for sure is that the democrats must be defeated on November 3rd. That date will go down in history as a time the country chose which path to follow. We cannot lose. We must defeat every democrat on the ballot. This must be a clear victory and it still will be challenged by democrats. They will not go down without a fight. God help us to muster the good people in this country to go to the polls and vote for President Trump and a straight Republican ticket. Pray we are victorious because if these past few months are any indication of what the democrats have planned for us, it will be a nightmare existence where only the connected and strong survive. God bless Tucker Carlson for giving a strong and unwavering analysis of the situation. He is right. The democrats cannot be given power.

The dem politicians know exactly what the agenda is. As we have seen they will do whatever it takes to attain it including the destruction of America. For them it's all about power and what they believe is their right to rule. The dem voters, for decades have been spoon fed hate and hatred for " evil " that is America and the republican party. For a long time it was nudge , nudge . Starting with Trump ( who greatly upset the dems plans because he won't go along to get along) it's been non stop in your face . The MSM, supposed reporters of the news , aka the truth, now make up the news to support the dem agenda and are aghast when called out on it. Keep in mind that when America was founded the majority of the people living in the colonies did not support independence.

#3 you are correct, BUT I think the democrats have been in charge since 1932. Much of FDR is still with us. Burned into our souls. Same with obama and others. Can anyone remember anything of Reagan's tenure that is still with us? I can't.

A wise man named Nathaniel Grigsby passed away at age 78 on April 16, 1890. He had this inscribed on his tombstone "Through this inscription I wish to enter my dying protest against what is called the Democratic party. I have watched it closely since the days of Jackson and know that all the misfortunes of our nation has come to it through this so called party therefore beware of this party for treason." He was a Civil War veteran, a 2nd Lieut., of Company G, 10th Indiana Cavalry, a farmer and a friend of Abraham Lincoln. He was also very right.

FTA: "It’s long been considered out-of-bounds to question a person’s patriotism.'' That may be true for the politically correct mob, pertaining to themselves, but they view patriotism as a racist issue for conservatives. For some twisted logic (or derangement) the radical left thinks true patriotism means trashing America's history and values. IOW, America has always been a bad country and it must be fundamentally transformed into their ideal. We have now seen their ideal: Violence. The use of violence to attain power and keep it. Violence to impose their values and opinions on people who disagree. Violence to pander to a voting base. No free speech. No Second Amendment. No opposition to anything they want. Otherwise, they will burn your city down.

We, our parents, and probably grandparents sat back and let this happen. When I was a child Walter Cronkite was the last word on everything and no one knew her was a Leftist and Communist. We don’t have that excuse. Most things are obvious. We talk tough on internet blogs, but the anarchists have not reached our neighborhoods so we sit on the couch watching them on cable news. By the time they reach our doorsteps it will be too late.

There are (or were) traditional democrats who supported the working man and woman but loved the country and supported it. They are now largely gone. There are never-Trumpers who simply hate Trump. There are angst-ridden democrats who long for a semi-socialist utopia and wring their hands when they see that we're not getting there. There are also radicals who literally hate the country, probably because they hate themselves and their lack of learning, character, integrity and inability to attract attention any other way than by acting out. The radical haters are now leading the democrat party and Biden will be beholden to them. His likely veep would be closer to them than he is and that person would likely succeed him, perhaps quickly in his first term. Those who hate the country and seek to 'transform' it would destroy it. Hopefully it could be saved after the public awakened to reality, but that public awakened to reality in 2016 and should now see the face and heart of the democrat party in the actions of the House of Representatives. This is make or break time, people. Work. Pray. Vote.

Tucker is basically taking Bill O'Reilly's place as a voice of reason & thought. Tucker has grown into the job and speaks and thinks clearly now much more than when he first started. At least he shuts up long enough to let his guests speak ... unlike Hannity and now somewhat Laura. Let's hope he's happily married, says nothing untoward and can keep his hands to himself! To his point and the article, sadly America's political bent has swung like the pendulum in Poe's old short story. Each swing gets longer but also deeper! The far swing to the left was Obama and now it is still swinging back to the right under Trump. We need to make it climb totally up the arc and pause for awhile at the top by getting Trump re-elected and also giving him the House & Senate ... yes, again. This time they will play ball better than Ryan did I have no doubt. Another 4 years of Trump and a Republican congress will stop the Dems in their tracks. It will be a Waterloo defeat. No one in their right minds now can vote Dem in November. No one.

I disagree slightly with #19, "We, our parents, and probably grandparents sat back and let this happen." My parents did not sit back and neither have I. Conservative patriotic voters have been denouncing the Dem party for decades, but unfortunately all we had were Republican politicians who for every election cycle promised us they would get the feds out of local education and did nothing about abolishing the Education Dept. They would say they wanted energy independence and ended up locking up more resources. The GOPe touted their presidential leaders with modifiers before "conservative". Millions of Americans rose up as the Tea Party and were forcefully neutralized by our own "leaders". They were all we had, and we had to vote for them. How could we protect our heritage when our "defenders" were secretly plundering along with the pirates? Not I, nor patriotic American people, should shoulder the blame for this Democrat debacle. It was the Democrat Party who decided a long time ago that having their own way was superior to having a country shared with others. It was the Republican Party who decided a long time ago that joining the Democrats in selling out the country was much easier and more financially rewarding than having to share the country with those deplorable others. All this perfidy and mendacity were glossily manipulated by propaganda masters in our "free" press. Yet out of this miasma came Ronald Reagan, the Tea Party movement and now our greatest champion, President Donald J. Trump. No, we did not "let" this happen. It was evil done to us to purposely overwhelm our resistance. In the past we had to fight in the shadows against shadows, now we fight in daylight on an open field. One of us, a true citizen, is leading us towards our rightful American Restoration. MAGA:KAG - The Best Is Yet To Be.

A huge fan of Tucker though I am, on this one we disagree. It is more complicated than hating the country. Progressives often love many things about the country, including in no particular order, our national parks, baseball, tennis, snooty schools and universities for themselves and their children, art museums for the right kind of art, big cities, CNN, NYT, NPR, et al., labor unions, the right nonprofits, mosques, abortion on demand, civil rights and helpful trial lawyers, Beverly Hills, Malibu, San Francisco, Marin County, Cape Cod and the Hamptons, and the right to protest. What liberals most often do not like are--again in no particular order--churches, red states, a confining (as distinguished from a "living") Constitution, Republicans, big business, billionaires not named George Soros, Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey, Mark Cuban, Larry Ellison, and Michael Bloomberg (among others), capitalism (except the companies owned by the aforementioned liberal billionaires), conservative white men and women, conservative black men and women, evangelicals, parochial schools, charter schools, the filibuster depending on which party controls the Senate, school choice, southern symbols of any kind, the notion of sin (which has been replaced by political correctness), the Christian notion of Christmas, the Fourth of July, carbon fuels, utilities, the military, the flag, the Star Spangled Banner and football (as distinguished from liberal millionaire players). Overall, however, they generally love America when they are in charge, and hate it when they are out of power. They are, in sum, like very spoiled children, who love or hate their parents depending on whether they are being lavished with gifts and candy or being made to eat their peas and do their homework.

If Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth eventually becomes Joe Biden’s vice presidential nominee, pundits and historians will look back to Independence Day weekend for the moment when her campaign jumped from insider gossip to mainstream appeal. Duckworth has long been considered an outside contender for the vice presidency. Her resumé is a Democratic dream: a combat veteran of the Iraq War, Duckworth sacrificed her legs in service to her country. After entering the House of Representatives in 2006 — flipping a Republican district long held by the abhorrent Henry Hyde, no less — Duckworth established herself as a progressive legislator and

The US drone strike that killed Qassem Soleimani, Iran’s top general, and nine other people was a violation of international law, according to the UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial killing. Washington failed to provide enough evidence of an ongoing or imminent attack against its interests to justify the strike on Soleimani’s convoy as it left Baghdad airport, Agnes Callamard said Monday. The strike violated the UN Charter, she wrote in a report that calls for accountability for targeted killings by armed drones and for greater regulation of the weapons.(Snip) But absent an actual imminent threat to life, the course of action taken

Going for the wokester cred, Meghan Markle's husband, Prince Harry, would like you to apologize, or rather, 'reflect' on the colonial sins of his ancestors.

The Duke of Sussex, 35, made the comment as he joined wife Meghan Markle, 38, for a video call with young leaders from the Queen's Commonwealth Trust last week that was made public today. As part of the discussion on 'justice and equal rights', Harry said the Commonwealth needs to follow others
