Tucker Carlson pulled no punches on Wednesday when he went right after modern day American liberals.
Calling these liberal fascists “jihadi’s” who “want to make you obey,” Carlson developed one of the most insightful and cutting pieces of commentary on modern liberalism that I’ve ever heard. In just a few short paragraphs he clearly articulates the fascist core that has developed in the modern American liberal movement. They’ve gone from arguing for individual liberties to demanding collective uniformity and papered over their fascist philosophy by arguing that individuals must now give up liberty for the good of society. It’s demented and it’s disturbing, and Carlson hits the nail on the head with his discerning comments.
The demagoguery around this is really nauseating I will say… We’ve always made exceptions for religious minorities. Quakers can become conscientious objectors. So you have a country where religious minorities get to choose which wars they fight in, but not whether to serve cupcakes at a wedding that would violate their religious principles? That’s insane. And I have to say, all the talk of tolerance that a lot of us took at face value in the ’90s and even last decade — ‘Why can’t we all just get along, you accept me, I’ll accept you,’ — they didn’t mean it at all.
These are absolutists, these are jihadis, people who want to make you obey, that don’t brook any opposition to their world view at all. They will crush you.
As one of my editors, one the smartest people in the office, Jim Antle said, ‘Today’s social liberals are very much like the stereotype of yesterday’s social conservatives. They set the societal norms, and anyone who deviates from them is punished.’ That is not tolerance, that’s authoritarianism.
