In the world of Tucker Carlson's hit TV show, America is under assault -- by Democrats, by health authorities, by immigrants, by Black Lives Matter protests -- and white conservatives are in a fight for their very survival.

Telling the creators of systems of inequality, division and wealth hoarding, mostly white American conservatives, that the threats to these systems come from the least privileged.

Swanson heir Tucker has a talent for projection, I will give him that.

The irony is that people like Tucker are the biggest threat to the lifestyles of most of his audience.

The US is a failed state headed for economic collapse and a return to 19th. century feudalism. Carlson's job is to set various victim groups against each other to distract attention from the rentier class and those profiting from the situation.

the 53-year-old appeals to viewers' outrage and plays on their fears

He has a lot to play with.

Education is important, everything is a lot less scary when you can understand it.

When I was a kid these people were ranting and rambling on a crate at a street corner stuff like "The End is nigh".

Nowadays they're on TV. I guess that's called "progress"?

True.

Telling the creators of systems of inequality, division and wealth hoarding, mostly white American conservatives, that the threats to these systems come from the least privileged. 

Why is it that the least privileged that are often caught up in the system are not taken seriously by white liberals? Why are they ok with crime and lawlessness, pointing that out makes you a racist? Yeah, that line really isn't working anymore.

The irony is that people like Tucker are the biggest threat to the lifestyles of most of his audience.

How so? By learning and being aware of issues that our government and media are supposed to inform us, but don't?

Even white liberals love to hate and bang on Tucker watch the guy.

More surprising are the stats about Carlson and Fox News’ pull with self-proclaimed Democrats. Of those demo-aged viewers surveyed who identified as Democrats, 39% chose Fox News, 31% chose MSNBC and 30% chose CNN for programming from 8 p.m. ET to 11 p.m. ET. In total-day viewership, Fox News grabbed 42% of Democrats aged 25-54, CNN nabbed 33% and MSNBC got 25%.

He's incredibly milquetoast in comparison to people who claim to advocate for other groups

Tucker Carlson: Voice of white America's outrage and fears

He is not the voice of 'White America'.

He is the voice of a Racist White's America, he is the voice of dinosaurs who will go extinct soon.

He is their last stand, their last desperate hope which will come to nothing.

The dwindling sponsors have already rattled him and fox , he is going to get dumped soon!

He lives in a bunker, literally, hardly steps out of home, rarely meets people and is known to be extremely paranoid.

Spreading lies, disinformation and promoting racism comes at a cost.

Wait, so that means the liberals that watch him, white, black, Hispanic and Asians are all racists???

He is their last stand, their last desperate hope which will come to nothing.

Not according to the polls. Now if you think that Dems will keep the House, tell us how.

The dwindling sponsors have already rattled him and fox , he is going to get dumped soon!

Well, no because Fox is floating him and will continue to float him even though he lost almost all of his sponsors, it's because of Fox management he is still on TV, and judging by his growing numbers, they will continue t support and float him, that is what is driving the left insane, the left was able to get a lot of people canceled, but they will never get anyone from FNC canceled, keep trying though.

He lives in a bunker,

No, he lives in a regular residential neighborhood in Florida, very, very normal.

literally, hardly steps out of home, rarely meets people and is known to be extremely paranoid.

You don't have to be Tucker to be paranoid of society, that goes for the Supreme Court justices and with the lawlessness and crime continuing on their depressing rise who wouldn't be paranoid? Don't believe me, ask the liberal Dave Chapelle.

Spreading lies, disinformation and promoting racism comes at a cost.

Yeah, the left keeps saying that, and they never can even debunk it, try as they might.

Nice little hit-piece. Mr Dauple of course fails to mention Tucker's staunch opposition to war and his criticisms of the military-industrial complex, which has earned him the respect of many hard left-wingers, such as Jimmy Dore and Russell Brand.

I suppose this comment will get deleted for being 'vulgar/offensive' or 'off-topic'.

From the above: "Fox lawyers contended in court that Carlson presents opinions rather than facts on his show..." There is such a thing as reasoned opinion, opinion that can be supported by facts and logic. Then there are opinions of low life like Carlson who thinks opinions do not need facts and logic by the virtue of being "only opinions."

We had the Fairness Doctrine until Ronald Reagan took it away from us. The Fairness Doctrine allowed people to respond when disagreeing with someone in the media. Carlson is I tripe pusher who benefited from this theft..

Yeah, seems like so far over the last 5 years he crushed a lot of the people that thought some of his facts were opinions and lost almost every time.

We had the Fairness Doctrine until Ronald Reagan took it away from us.

Because liberals don't get to determine what is fair and what is not.

"Modern Liberals hate Fundamental, Conservative, Hateful, Violent, Racist Fake Christianity"...? There. I edited it for you. "Modern liberals" are often Christians. You'll find, the official stance of Episcopalians, Methodists, Quakers, Presbyterians, Lutherans, and more is officially progressive. These liberals take actions to improve the lives of their communities and the nation. Example: https://www.presbyterianmission.org/what-we-believe/social-issues/

Tucker Carlson is the poster boy for "replacement theory". If anything he is a reason to wish that "replacement theory" was a real thing, because the faster white racists like him die off the better the US will be. I grew up with racism. My immediate family, my neighbors, my friends parents all openly disparaged blacks. Even where I live now people my age use the N word freely. I get what the Tucker Carlson's of the world are saying. I also know it is wrong, that is deeply and profoundly immoral.  That fear of what you don't know and the racism that grows from that fear poisons your soul, and those who like Mr. Carlson make large amounts of money by appealing to the most base instincts in people are the lowest of the low. Instead of appealing to the good in people he preys on their fears. What a perfectly horrible individual. There is no reason to carry the weight of racism. Free yourselves from it! Open your eyes and see how whites have treated non-whites even to this day. See non-whites for the people they are, not the twisted racist stereotypes you have been fed by miserable wretches like Tucker Carlson.

Were Christ alive among us today he would be appalled at the horrors committed in his name.

Payton Gendron, a young white supremacist accused of trying to kill as many African Americans as possible in the Buffalo shooting, was influenced by the "Great Replacement" theory, a far-right belief that the white population will be replaced by immigrants.

Is there evidence Gendron was a viewer of Tucker Carlson's show, and cites the show as influencing him to commit the shooting crime?

No? Then the editor of this article should have deleted that passage as being OFF-TOPIC.

"Gendron was mentally ill," Carlson said, dismissing the long manifesto by the suspect -- which does not mention the show -- as "not recognizably left-wing or right-wing, it's not really political at all."

Hmm; sounds like 'ole Tucker was right--and there is evidence Gendron was mentally ill, and no evidence he was influenced by Tucker Carlson's show.

After families ask why more wasn’t done after Payton Gendron said he wanted to kill himself and others last year, district attorney defends local officials’ actions

I'll listen to Tucker, and not the author of this article, At least Tucker's opinions are supported by verifiable facts.

Liberals don’t watch him and only the vilest of the vilest watch and support him.

Not according to the polls. Now if you think that Dems will keep the House, tell us how.

Well, Biden is getting up there in age.

But Mercieca says he is now "uniquely powerful."

Which is exactly why the liberals fear him. They fear anyone whose narrative they can't control.

Rather insulting, don’t you think? That’s a lot of people you’re talking about. There’s a reason why he has the number one rated show on TV and beating everyone hands down and is gaining more and more audiences by the day. Maybe if the haters on TV and elsewhere would try and understand and learn why he’s so successful instead of just name calling they would be ahead of the game, but they don’t and won’t. So while his success continues to rise, the rest of the haters he’s putting out of business.

You’re just angry because you know and I know liberals cannot get the sky off the air and you guys are stuck with having to listen to what he has to say and it just annoys you guys to no end. Well, you don’t watch him so don’t worry and if people as you claim are mentally deprived for watching Tucker, so be it. Live and let live. Lol
