Fox Host Tucker Carlson is on a roll currently, lighting up authoritarian Democrat leaders who seek to seize control over the American people without having to answer to their own rules.
In his opening monologue on Thursday, Carlson confirmed what many normal Americans have been saying for months — the elite “political class” has “deliberately decided to use this pandemic as a way to gain political power for themselves.”
In the weeks leading up to the thanksgiving holiday, Democrat leaders and lawmakers began warning Americans that they would not be allowed to celebrate with their families as has been the tradition for hundreds of years — and Carlson believes there’s much more to it than just exercising caution.
“It is Thanksgiving. We hope you’re having a wonderful time with your family,” Carlson began. “Nothing is more important or happier than spending time with the people you love.”
In a year when cultural vandals and tragically unhappy graduate students set out to destroy virtually everything in sight from statues of the saints to the very idea of Columbus Day, they haven’t gotten Thanksgiving yet. It remains and there’s a reason for that.
Americans care about Thanksgiving and they have for a very long time. Back in 1939, Franklin Roosevelt moved the holiday a week earlier. He said it was an effort to boost the economy during the Great Depression, but it seemed to many Americans weird and undignified, and they mocked him for it.
They called Thanksgiving, Frank’s giving. Congress heard what they were saying and eventually moved Thanksgiving back where it belonged, and where it is now. We’ve been celebrating Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday of November ever since then.
In a time of political upheaval, and this certainly is one, you’ll notice that no politician tried to move Thanksgiving or call it Juneteenth. We should be grateful for that. It’s an enduring American tradition.
At the same time, though, we have to tell you the obvious, we are witnessing fundamental changes in the way this country works; changes that Congress won’t be able to undo simply by voting and it’s not just because the coronavirus came here from Wuhan, China and upended everything, though it did, it is because our political class has deliberately decided to use this pandemic as a way to gain political power for themselves.
Carlson played a clip of leftists such as Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and Hillary Clinton declaring that COVID-19 is the perfect trojan horse to reshape our society.
“We should not be intimidated when people say, oh, you can’t use this COVID crisis in order to peddle a solution to climate change. No, we have to recognize the necessity of this moment,” said Inslee in a clip.
“If there is any silver lining in the midst of this terrible, terrible and unprecedented moment in American history in terms of the economy, in terms of the pandemic, it is that maybe we start rethinking some fundamental tenets about the way our government and society works,” Sanders affirmed.
Clinton chimed in and claimed that “this would be a terrible crisis to waste as the old saying goes.”
“Conservative” Washington Post contributor Jennifer Rubin — who stays relevant by attacking almost everything the right stands for at every turn — recently declared that “we have to collectively, in essence, burn down the Republican Party” and ban those who supported Trump from “polite society.”
Burn it down, says Jen Rubin … when she says we need to burn down the party, of course, what she is saying is we need to burn down the country, and anyone else who disagrees with her. That hasn’t happened yet. And despite what’s happened this year, and it’s been a very long year for a lot of people, we can be grateful for that. It’s still America.
