As the Left continues its onslaught against conservative speech, “domestic terrorism,” and all-things Donald Trump, Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Monday delivered an epic monologue in defense of liberty, and in condemnation of the Left’s now-blatant attack.
Carlson began by slamming the “militarization” of Washington, D.C., in advance of the inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. (How bad does it still suck to read those seven words?) Like most on the Right, Tucker isn’t buying the “Capitol riot” reason for the introduction of up to 26,000 National Guardsmen in and around the Capitol Hill area; at least some of whom have been authorized to use lethal force.
“For comparison,” he noted, “Lyndon Johnson sent a total of 13,600 federal troops and Army National Guardsmen to quell the race riots in Washington that followed the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. Those riots injured hundreds of people and killed at least 13.”
As opposed to the Capitol attack as a reason, Tucker argued, now that the Democrats are fully “in charge,” they are intent on sending an unmistakable message to all who oppose them. “Do not question us.” Or you will be canceled. Or worse.
“[U]nmistakably, the Democratic Party is using those troops to send the rest of us a message about power:
‘We’re in charge now. We run this nation from Honolulu to our colony in the Caribbean and everything in between, very much including where you and your family live. Do not question us. Men with guns enforce our decrees; we control the Pentagon.’
“And indeed, they do.”
He went on to skewer military brass who are more than willing to do the bidding of Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer. That is about as chilling a thought as they come.
“Republicans have spent years ignoring the leftward drift of our officer corps, but we can’t ignore it now. The mask is off our military leadership.
“The very same generals who howled at the idea of deploying American troops to stop an invasion of our southern border sent tens of thousands of soldiers with rifles to Washington purely as a show of force on behalf of the political party they support.”
“Once they did that,” Carlson said, “they allowed Democratic politicians to degrade and politicize the military itself.”
“Democrats in Congress demanded that the troops sent to Washington this week submit to a political purity test — ‘ideological vetting,’ as they put it — to make certain that every soldier professed loyalty to the new regime.
“Not loyalty to our country, not loyalty to our Constitution, but loyalty to the aims of a specific political party. Nothing like that has ever happened in America and just a few months ago, it would have been unimaginable. Suddenly it’s compulsory.”
Again, Tucker Carlson was chillingly spot-on.

“Something awful has been unleashed on our country.”

“So how long will this cycle go on?”, Carlson asked.
“If you’re hoping America will revert to normal on Wednesday afternoon after Joe Biden is sworn in as president, you are an optimist.
“You probably assumed the quarantines and mandatory face coverings were temporary, too.
“Something awful has been unleashed on our country. Unchecked, it will inevitably lead to more awful things.”
“And what about the news media?”, he asked. “Reporters are perpetually on the hunt for what they describe as dangerous extremism.”
It’s not just the liberal media lapdogs.
My articles just prior to this one are perfect examples.
In Watch: Leftist Author Warns About ‘Trump’s Army of Domestic Terrorists,’ Calls for ‘Citizen Army’ to ‘Monitor Them’, I included a video from New York Times best-selling author Don Winslow in which he calls for “an army of detectives.” “I’m proposing we form a citizen army. Our weapons will be computers and cellphones,” he declares. “We, who are monitoring extremists on the internet and reporting our findings to authorities.”
In my article prior to the above, Oh Please, Hillary: Two-Time Loser ‘Would Love to See’ Trump’s Phone Records to See if He Called Putin on Day of Capitol Attack, I included a clip in which
the irrelevant wench Hillary Clinton, in mindblowing hypocritical fashion, asks Speaker Nancy Pelosi if she thinks “we need to come up with a 9/11-type commission to investigate and report everything that they can pull together and explain what happened?”
“What happened,” was not just a reference to the four years of the Trump presidency, but also aimed at Trump’s “enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, [who] have the same disregard for democracy.” Give it a rest, Hillary.
Tucker Carlson was right. Something awful has been unleashed on our country. Behind that “awful something,” lies the bitterness and unbridled hatred of Donald Trump.
The Left unleashed Stage IV Trump Derangement Syndrome on themselves — as a starter.
The Democrat Party and their sock puppets in the liberal media were incapable of wrapping their smug-ass brains around the reality that the “bombastic, narcissistic reality TV show host” beat “the most qualified person to be president in the history of mankind.”
And they never will.
Hence, the Left tried, from the moment Trump was declared the winner of the 2016 election, to destroy him, his family, and his followers. They failed. Miserably so. But now, already drunk with the power of complete control of the federal government, they intend to use as much of that power as necessary to destroy “all of the above.” Bigly. And then some.
That is something awful, indeed.
