There would be certain tactical advantages to this. The Left always performs much, much better when a Republican is in office. The anti-establishment populist-right would continue to be rallied. The division between the Republican “base” and Republican establishment would continue to expand as would the divide between the […]
Carlson has another interview with the “Straight Outta Applebee’s” guy. If the revolutionary “far-left” was tactically shrewd, they would come out in opposition to any arrest or legal prosecution of this guy on “we’re against the pigs no matter who they come after” grounds, or “we’re for the […]
LOL. This is so predictable. The progressives insincerely co-opt a genuinely radical idea, and then the right-wing actually takes them seriously, and points the finger saying, “Look at those extremists over there!” What’s interesting about Carlson is that on economics and foreign policy he often sounds like Bernie […]
Kyle Kulinski has an interesting rebuttal to Carlson’s Hobbesian-Burkean perspective. In his more serious and intelligent moments, Carlson is simply making the Hobbesian argument that order must be maintained at all costs in order for civilization to exist with considerations of “justice,” whatever their merit, being a secondary […]
It’s interesting how en vogue anti-capitalism has now become on both the left and right. On the margins, we see the Antifas carrying a hammer and sickle flag, and the Alt-Right becoming Nazbols. In the mainstream, we see the rise of social democrats like Sanders and AOC on […]
Fox’s Tucker Carlson calls Trump ‘weak,’ urges him ‘protect your people’ from rioters or ‘you’re done’
As the de facto voice of the MAGAs, Tucker Carlson’s George Wallace-like commentary is predictable. Regrettably, many MAGA-types have too many cultural, psychological, and other barriers to view the insurrection in any context other than “those people are causing trouble.” The lamentable limitations of Carlson’s fans were summarized […]
Carlson’s program for tonight was pretty interesting. He calls out government overreach per the lockdowns, exposing the empty skirt Stacey Abrams as a fraud, explores the interesting falling out between the Republican Party and the FBI/CIA, plus the usual heavy dose of Sinophobia where he comes close to […]
If only it were true. Localized quarantines are what we should have been doing all along. It’s ridiculous to expect rural counties to abide by the same rules as New York and Los Angeles. Some states are using science to guide their decisions and cautiously beginning to relax […]
Carlson calls out the federal police state about 3 minutes into this. Ilhan Omar’s response is disappointing and regrettably rooted in partisan/cultural/tribal politics than actual opposition to the system. From Trump-loyaltist three percenters to Democrat-voting Marxists, it’s interesting how few supposed “radicals” actually oppose the system.
Krystal has really been getting attacked by the SJW crowd lately, which means she is likely on the right track. I reject Tucker Carlson’s populist-nationalism and social conservatism. I reject Krystal’s statist-reformist social democracy. And I reject the libtard-leftard-SJW-Antifa pathological right-wingophobia. Kyle’s commentary is this is pretty good.
Tucker Carlson is a de facto spokesman for the petite bourgeoise and “small capitalist” sectors of the commercial economy, the post-bourgeois proletariat, the “sinking middle,” the dying WASP culture, political traditionalists and constitutional fundamentalists of the kind found on the paleo/populist-right, etc. Many of those interests have been […]
I generally don’t agree with Tucker Carlson’s Sinophobia. Yes, China is probably as close to being an actual “fascist” regime of any country in the world today in the sense of being a one-party state, with a cult of personality built around the leader, a state-directed system of […]
When Trump was running for office in 2016, I knew that he would mostly govern as a normal Republican or neoliberal centrist, with a rhetorically leftward turn on a few issues (trade, gays, foreign policy, etc.), and that his more rightward rhetoric was mostly a bone thrown to […]
When the coronavirus crisis hit Michigan, Gov. Whitmer responded with a mixture of comical ineptitude and weird, arbitrary fascism.
“I hate agreeing with this dick so often but Gretchen Whitmer is running Michigan like a Third World banana republic. Coronavirus is some serious shit but fascism is way fucking worse and that is exactly what heavy-handed governors like Whitmer are trafficking in. Carlson should talk to the […]
Carlson had some pretty good commentary tonight on the growth of the surveillance state during the present crisis.
Tucker Carlson’s program tonight has a lot of interesting information. Melissa Francis inadvertently describes the correct solution to the present economic crisis, i.e. a complete holiday on payments for everyone. Bring on the gift economy!
Tucker Carlson predicts the DNC will replace Biden with Andrew Cuomo.
This video is over a year old, but it’s a good description of the neoliberal vs. populist division that is growing on the US right, just like there is a growing division between neoliberals and social democrats on the US left. The consequences of the Reagan-Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama neoliberal paradigm […]
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders may be socialist bomb-thrower who praises Fidel Castro, but it’s mostly talk.
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley As something of a radical contrarian, I often feel like my life is comprised largely of coming out of an endless procession of closets, often without even realizing I’m stepping through the doorway. What? You didn’t know I […]
Interesting if true. The Daily Beast In the upper echelons of the Trump administration, hawkish voices on Iran predominate—most notably Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton. But as tensions between the U.S. and Iran have escalated over the last few weeks, there’s been […]
Tucker Carlson nails it. It’s interesting how he’s the most popular commentator on FOX which is otherwise Neocon Central. I’m sure Murdoch is regretting ever giving him a job there. But now he’s gotten too popular for the network to fire him without giving the game away. Paleocons […]
Yep. This is a pretty good analysis. It’s also important to recognize that political correctness/totalitarian humanism is not just a Left/Right conflict. It’s also an intra-Left conflict as well, with all kinds of left-wing factors shitting all over themselves to out-PC each other, or to accuse each other […]
I’m not a fan of Tucker Carlson’s Trumpism, but a “no apologies, no capitulation” policy is how you handle the SJWs.
Berniebro Kyle Kulinski on the divide between the neocons and paleocons. I generally agree with Kulinski’s analysis here.
Kyle Kulinski offers a good critique of why right-wing critics of the Left typically fail, but regrettably Kyle merely wants to steer the conversation toward his own Berniebro/neo-Rooseveltian perspective.
These Tucker Carlson-types are pretty good at criticizing the Left. But they regrettably use their critique to steer their audience toward the Republican-oriented right-wing. It’s possible to hate Bolsheviks without wanting to preserve the Tsar.
Kyle Kulinski of Secular Talk has a pretty good critique of Tucker Carlson, and Trumpism generally, that I think is largely accurate, although I disagree with Kulinski’s embrace of Bernie Sanders’ neo-Rooseveltian perspective as the fallback position, and Kulinski clearly does not criticize the Left strongly enough, and […]
Thus far, Tucker Carlson has been, to my knowledge, the only mainstream media figure to challenge the System’s narrative on Syria. It’s interesting how the Republican Senator being interviewed said, “If you care about Israel…” the first time he opened his mouth. What if you don’t care about […]
