Tucker Carlson's Point About the Ruling Class Is the Most Important for This Election

Last night’s monologue from Tucker Carlson was a spectacular one. While they’re all usually pretty good, this one hit square in the center of the bullseye.

As my colleague Bonchie highlighted earlier, this was a must-hear monologue on the day just before election day and it focused on what it is exactly that we’re fighting.

There was a part of the monologue, I thought, that really summed up everything that my colleagues and I have been writing about for some time.

The Democrat party truly believes that they’re better than you and that even though they have a disdain for you, they believe you need them in order to survive. They look down on you from their elite positions as they walk around marbled halls they didn’t build, working in a governmental system they wouldn’t have had the wisdom or intelligence to create, and live off of money given to them by taxpayers who have jobs that they would be aghast about having to do.

Carlson explained their views of us like so:

They know people who support Donald Trump are also evil. They’re bigots, they’re morons, they’re racist cult members. They know that Americans have been fired from their jobs for supporting Donald Trump, not to mention kicked off social media, belittled by their kids’ teachers, shunned by decent society. Only losers and freaks support Donald Trump.

Donald Trump in other words is and has always been a living indictment of the people who run this country, that was true four years ago when Trump came out of nowhere to win the presidency and it’s every bit as true right now, maybe even more true than it’s ever been and it will remain true regardless of whether Donald Trump wins reelection. Trump grows because they failed, it’s as simple as that. The people in charge had done a halfway decent job with the country they inherited, if they cared about anything other than themselves even for just a moment, Donald Trump would still be hosting “Celebrity Apprentice,” but they didn’t. Instead, they were incompetent and narcissistic and cruel and relentlessly dishonest. They wrecked what they didn’t build, they lied about it. They hurt anyone who told the truth about what they were doing. That’s true. We watched.

Carlson is correct and this is exactly why Trump must win.

Despite the leftist elite’s belief in their superiority, higher intelligence, and wisdom, they have next to none of these things. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may know how to play the political game in Washington better than most but she’s an otherwise useless person. Kamala Harris might believe in social justice but her understanding of justice leaves a lot to be desired.

I don’t know many people that appreciate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her intelligence or Mazie Hirono for her wisdom. Adam Schiff isn’t exactly known for being an honorable man and no one is complimenting Joe Biden on his honesty, at least not honestly.

But we can leave Washington and get the same feeling from the elites in Hollywood and New York. Lady Gaga is currently making videos mocking people outside her bubble, celebrities are threatening to leave the country as if we’d miss them.

None of these people know what it is to be a regular American. As one of the few self-aware celebrities, Ricky Gervais noted, they know nothing about the real world. They just have a large stage and too much power. Their self-importance has achieved critical levels of ridiculousness.

They think they can think for you and that you should be thankful to them for it. They believe that their intelligence and wisdom is far beyond yours and that what’s good for one group must be good for all groups. They cannot, or outright refuse, to see that their methods and beliefs are wholly flawed and that any talk about these flaws must be met with punishment in some way.

That kind of personality cannot and should not have power.

C.S. Lewis wrote of these people and how their brand of tyranny is the worst kind.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive,” wrote Lewis. “It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

These elitists know very little about the real world. Handing the real world to them will only make it into a nightmare.
