Actual words that Tucker Carlson said on television

“Now, I know that the left and all the little gatekeepers on Twitter become literally hysterical if you use the term ‘replacement,’ if you suggest that the Democratic Party is trying to replace the current electorate, the voters now casting ballots, with new people, more obedient voters from the Third World,” the Fox News star declared. “But they become hysterical because that’s what's happening actually. Let’s just say it. That’s true.”

Adding that you “dilute the political power of the people” in one country if “you change the population,” Carlson went on to say he would become “disenfranchised as a current voter” every time “they import a new voter.” After complaining that “everyone wants to make a racial issue out of it,” the Fox host proceeded to once again defend “white replacement theory.”

“No, no, this is a voting-right question. I have less political power because they are importing a brand new electorate,” he exclaimed. “Why should I sit back and take that? The power that I have as an American guaranteed at birth is one man, one vote, and they are diluting it. No, they are not allowed to do it. Why are we putting up with this?”

Actual statement defending these words from FoxNews

A Fox News spokesperson insisted that Carlson was somehow actually dismissing the theory, pointing to the host’s comments where he called it a “voting-rights question.”

These "law and order" bs artists' only interest is in keeping power. They have no souls. That's as nice as I can say it. I never believed it was possible that we could have another civil war, but more and more I can see it coming. EVERYone of those terrorists who assaulted our Capitol should get the biggest penalty allowed under US law. I don't give a f what their excuses were. Let me make that clearer - I don't give a f what their excuses were. Not only do they need to pay; they need to be made an example of. Otherwise, it's accepting what happened - which can't happen unless you're fine with behaving like a 3rd world country.

I wish Republicans refusing to take the vaccine would result in a disproportionate number of Republican voters dying. TBH. People like that deserve to die a horrible death from COVID. But really what's going to end up happening is they'll get better health care than the black/poor/compromised people they infect, they'll live, and innocent people will die. And there's literally no consequences for them.

Why... did she think it necessary to tase someone for having air freshener in his car?

Ugh!

I remember there water a lot of smug and self righteous Bernie suppression claiming Russiagate was a hoax. My only question is why was Mueller so inept at investigating this pretty obvious smoking gun?

funny how climate change, environment, and coronavirus are the fact-based topics and idiot R's are more emboldened to vote for the objectively crappier party when the topics get fuzzier/more based in opinion and require more nuanced thought.

Mueller wasn't inept. He was prevented or limited in the scope of the investigation by the DoJ.
This was totally unknown or underappreciated at the time.
