You can't just look at Carlson's odd speech/segment in isolation.

If you watch his shows regularly they're always about the same issues with a different angle. It's always fear for white people losing their privilege.

Whether it's
- immigrants diluting the voting pool (and he was specific about it being 3rd world immigrants, which is code for brown people, white Europeans are fine apparently)
- Wokeness taking racism/sexism/homophobia out of streaming platforms
- Democrats rioting all over the country and not being punished (they're being punished)
- Poor Capitol invaders being punished for committing serious crimes (including likely sedition)
- BLM being a communist plot
- Biden being a socialist

There's no let up, no good news stories, it's just fear 24/7. In isolation, maybe he steers close enough to ideology for some of it to be excused. But if you look at his entire body of work, there's no doubt his agenda is protecting white male privilege in any way he can, including racism, sexism and fear-mongering.
You say it’s about white male privilege and then half your points have nothing to do with white male pivlege. Biden being a socialist. BLM being a communist plot. Democrats rioting and not being punished. None of that has anything to do with white male privilege.

Of course it is. The right call anything related to equality socialism.

Want to raise taxes on the rich and powerful to reduce their power and give some to the poor? That's socialism.

Want to give everyone healthcare because poor people can't afford it? That's socialism (this one is true, but they're only opposed to it because it means higher taxes on people who can afford it).

They call BLM communists, but really they're just challenging the white, male and privileged. They're not allowed to call them the n word any more so they call them commies. As if equality is some evil plot and not what the US was founded on.

You start out in 1954 by saying, “n*gg*r, n****r, n****r.” By 1968 you can’t say “n****r”—that hurts you, backfires. So you say stuff like, uh, forced busing, states’ rights, and all that stuff, and you’re getting so abstract. Now, you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is, blacks get hurt worse than whites.… “We want to cut this,” is much more abstract than even the busing thing, uh, and a hell of a lot more abstract than “N****r, n****r.”

Former Republican strategist Lee Atwater, advisor to Reagan and George HW Bush, who extensively used the “Southern Strategy” in campaigns.

The BLM leaders call THEMSELVES Marxists.

The Right didn't invent it.

And Marxists they are, right down to using donations to bankroll multiple property purchases.

Thought this must have been a joke. Should have known better.

“So the next time you see someone in a mask on the sidewalk or on the bike path, do not hesitate. Ask politely but firmly, ‘Would you please take off your mask? Science shows there is no reason for you to be wearing it. Your mask is making me uncomfortable.’”​
Your mask is making me uncomfortable :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

Nice one, Tuck. America, land of the free!

Your advantage is that you're very special.
I dislike your inference... just because you don't like him you have to make a jibe about something else.. you know I am
partial to equalisation and never denigrating people .. you are joking in a way but the joke has to be dumped.. just like
blondes are dumb, red heads are angry, gays are always wearing clothes they don't match with as well as blacks who are
always getting police attention..

Yes I digress and this is obviously all not coherent but my husband told me to put this down and agrees with it too..

I understand exactly what you mean and you’re bang on.

The so called anti racists, anti ablists, anti misogynists are always quick with the “Uncle Toms”, the “specials” and the disgusting abuse of women when it suits their politics.
