DNC official wants Tucker Carlson fired

https://youtu.be/Q9qg-LeAF2M

DNC vice chair Michael Blake, invited on America’s Newsroom on Tuesday, attacked Fox News over Tucker Carlon’s opinion that Michelle Obama is the only figure who can unite the Democrats. “She’s not running. The core question is why the hell does Tucker Carlson still have a job here in the first place? […] The reality is this is someone who said white supremacy is a hoax. Why does Fox still allow him to be here in the first place?”

For people interested in context, here’s what Carlson meant on that particular occasion. After being asked about the likelihood of Michelle Obama running, Blake answered “Not gonna happen,” then went back on the attack against Carlson. “He shouldn’t be on here at all.”

This type of discourse, very prevalent on the liberal and leftist side, is exactly what caused the counter-culture back in the day to be successful. Now, that same counter-culture and some of its most fervent supporters have become the new establishment, the new orthodoxy, who’s above criticism and wishes no opposition. Eliminating opinions we don’t agree with, firing people from their jobs because they expressed a divergent view to our own, deplatforming and shadow-banning… this ‘play style’ may work well short term, but long term it cannibalizes itself and collapses on its own weight and hypocrisy. You can’t win an argument if you bar debate from occurring, and you can’t have a real debate if you censor people’s ideas.

But the right is no stranger to this type of sophistry. The best example is the anti-semite smear campaign against Ilhan Omar, for making a politically incorrect [but factually correct] comment about Israel’s influence over US politics. The West used to cherish free expression, or rather, cherished to advertise this mythology – but now, both liberal and conservative, leftist and rightist are vying to impose their brand of accepted speech as the only form of tolerable expression. And while tories are shouting foul, because they’re getting censored, many among their ranks would love it if the situation were reversed. But returning to the issue at hand, since the DNC is so angry at Tucker Carlson and wants him off the air, that’s a clear sign he’s doing his job as a pressman.

Before Trump, there had never been a candidate for President that was against the power combine that ruled our expansion crazy Empire. Now with Bernie Sanders blasting gigantic holes in the mainstream media propaganda and set to bang heads with Trump, how will our Empire ever endure the shock of it?

It never will. America’s current maniacal political scene has no recovery option built into it. It’s now beyond repair and will only worsen over time no matter who’s the next POTUS, with infighting continuing to eat at its national gizzard until it either implodes from within or explodes into WWIII, just because it’ll be the path of least resistance. Friend or foe: best all you nations beware.

He attacks Max Blumenthal for pointing out the WH affiliation with Syrian jihadis. When challenged to prove they have no affiliation with any ‘rebel’ terrorist groups, he posts a link to an NBC article: “7 medics with Syria’s White Helmets group killed in Idlib” https://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/isis-terror/7-white-helmets-medics-killed-syria-s-idlib-n792046 BUT, reading the article reveals that al Qaeda and al-Sham (two competing factions of the same ilk)… Read more »

What the DNC wishes for flows from arrogance. They wish for a lot of foolish things, like impeachment, and socialist influence. I assume Fox would not bow to such demands from a corrupt political organization that basically is trying to preside over an overthrow of the presidency, with no regard to the people.

Not enough.

Just one egregious example of so much faulty judgement that I’m surprised I even bothered with this minute of my time. The simple truth is that American voters are caught between a rock and a hard place and if it were… Read more »

I saw that interview with Bill hemmer. Blake definitely had an agenda going into that segment. He clearly did not want to discuss anything that bill wanted to talk about. Why is it that Democrats never want to talk about the issues? It’s typical because they have nothing to offer. Maybe Blake is the one that should step down.

Carlson told the truth about Syria and did what he could to discourage the Trump administration to escalate the conflict. Ditto for the episode with Iran. Tucker Carlson is anti-war and a patriot, and because he’s a conservative, and your side is full of libtard degenerate crooks and war profiteers, you can’t handle it.
