Greenwald says he sees Tucker Carlson as a ‘socialist’

Fox News enjoyed dominance for years during President Donald Trump’s administration. Now the cracks are beginning to form, including for one of their most prominent hosts.

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald alleged that Fox News’ Tucker Carlson “a socialist” along with other prominent figures on the right, the Daily Caller reported. Greenwald was comparing socialism in America to the same philosophy in places like Brazil. 

Greenwald spoke with hosts Christian Datoc and Omeed Malik on the Daily Caller’s “Wall Street Meets Washington” Monday. He threw Carlson’s name into the mix along with former President Donald Trump and his White House strategist Steve Bannon for the way they handle the mix of government intervention, nationalism, and the free market in a way that is a softer sell for the redistributionist idea.

He cited a particular situation where Carlson sided with Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She opposed Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s plans “to give tens of millions of dollars to Amazon to bring an office to New York” and Carlson said he “agreed with her completely.” Ocasio-Cortez has herself identified as a democratic socialist.

“I think the vision is, you know, you have this kind of right-wing populism,” Greenwald said, “which really is socialism, that says we should close our borders, not allow unconstrained immigration, and then take better care of our own working-class people, and not allow this kind of transnational, global, corporatist elite to take everything for themselves under the guise of neoliberalism.”

Earlier, Greenwald commented that President of Brazil Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva rose to power by espousing free-market principles while also supporting redistributionist policies. “Obviously the term ‘socialism’ carries a lot of baggage from the Cold War,” Greenwald said. “But I think what you are seeing is this kind of hybrid socialism that really is about nothing more than trying to sandpaper the edges off of neoliberalism, and I would describe a lot of people on the right as socialist.”

Carlson has indeed supported left-of-center ideas and gone against common conservative causes. For instance, he railed against Trump’s 2017 tax cut that “was far better for corporate America than it was for the middle class.” He was also objected to efforts to repeal Obama care back when it was a foundational issue for the Republicans after Trump took office.

It’s not clear if Carlson is an actual socialist, but he doesn’t always toe the line when it comes to conservative issues. That wouldn’t be a problem except that Fox News already has trust issues with its viewer base, making this particular charge another unfortunate blow to the embroiled network’s reputation.

This guy is trying to obfiscate the difference between left and right .This is just another eliteist trying to say that ther is little difference . Just because someone does not toe the line with leadership[ does not change there overall leaning left or right .Their are Democrats that are not toeing the line right now in Congress .

“obfuscate” Your mis-use of their, there, and they’re is abominable grammar. These errors rankle the hackles of this “grammar Nazi” even if your heart is in the right place. Any way, keep posting about the atrocities of the LEFTISTS. Thank you.

I could forgive a plethora of spelling, grammer, and diction offenses, If the idiots would pay attention to the first lessons their mothers ever taught them. . . . how to dress themselves. . . and pull their damned pants up!

Accuse the accuser! By the way, in addition to placing the truth on every main stream propaganda outlet, write your local news medias, they are equally biases. Be specific about what story and when. When they try to excuse the bias call them on it. One sided story’s are biased no matter what.

Greenwald is desperately trying to be relevant by accusing Tucker Carlson that does not fit him and really does not compute with Tucker’s history! Greenwald is trying to be a Cancel Culturist!

I do not like communities giving away a lot of tax goodies to giants like Amazon. It makes it tougher for smaller businesses to compete. I also thought the tax bill did not adequately tax carried interest.

No one is left in a powerful position as Tucker without a reason. Hannity too. Who listens to these shows, conservatives (me being an ardent fan until something clicked about a year ago) Carlson and Hannity appeared to be overselling right and über right issues. How better to indoctrinate although very subtly the conservatives….except by someone appearing conservative. Just my personal opinon..

When Tucker starts touting central planning, I’ll worry. Otherwise this clown is pandering division. We can never underestimate the leftist ability to obfuscate. He’s probably perturbed because the neo-Nazi/taliban is unraveling &n eating its own tail What a hoot!

Tucker is no concern compared to black robe Supreme Court justices who won’t uphold the U.S. Constitutional voting laws.

This guy is a lead man for Old Joe trying to smear Tucker. Here is the truth: Well, Old Joe and the Ho’s administration is in it’s third month. Because of stupidly attacking each other, democrats in the House and Senate have made them invalid. So Old Joe signed over a half a hundred EOs that he never read, trying to erase Trump. They even came up with a failed impeachment of a private citizen. Almost all the campaign promises Old Joe made have fallen flat on their faces. So he ordered a new war because that is where democrat power shines. As for the Ho, she is no more relevant in any supportive areas than the worn out girdle she wears. Mostly because she got to the top on her back but at 56 years old, even that’s quickly wearing thin.
