Bow-tied country club Republican tabloid TV jerk-off Tucker Carlson is hardly a “nazbol.” Carlson is within a longstanding “progressive Republican” tradition of mildly criticizing big capital that goes at least as far back as Teddy Roosevelt if not Lincoln (and usually doing favors for big capital behind the scenes, as was the case both Roosevelt and Lincoln). Carlson is the latest manifestation of this tradition.
The pathological obsession of the US “left” (including folks who should know better) with “red-brown alliances” seems to have begun when anarcho-neocon Alexander Reid-Ross-Kristol-Power was living in Russia some years ago, witnessed a National-Bolshevik demonstration and, being the weenie that he is, shit in his pants at the sight of “commie-fascists.” I recently saw another well-known anarchist writer laughably refer to Carlson as a “Strasserite.” Probably 99.9999% of Carlson’s audience has no idea what a Nazbol or Strasserite is.
