Fox News host Tucker Carlson accused Republicans of “surrendering” to the Democratic Party on a list of policy issues beginning with the coronavirus outbreak in March.
Speaking on his Friday evening show, Carlson said the coronavirus and nationwide protests have “revealed the truth” about the “ineffectiveness of Republican members of Congress who have allowed their Democratic counterparts to “take over the country.”
“Our Republican leaders don’t believe they have the authority. They don’t believe they are legitimate,” Carlson said. “They don’t see the threat, they don’t want to see the threat because they know they can’t face the mob. They know they are too weak, and so, they offer trinkets and hope the mob will go away, but it won’t. Mobs can’t be sated. We thought Republicans understood that, that’s why we supported them, but crisis has revealed the truth. Now we know who they are, it could not be clearer, and now it’s time to find new leaders.”
Carlson lambasted the GOP for allowing Democrats, whom he accused of being unable to “make their beds,” of roaring back to claim political victory during months of unrest throughout the country.
“Their entire political strategy was bizarre, and in the end, it was counterproductive. It hurt them with voters; they went down in the polls,” he said. “These people couldn’t organize your kid’s birthday party, they didn’t make their beds this morning, and yet, suddenly, out of nowhere, they roared back and took over the country. They did it in less time than it takes most people to go on spring vacation. What happened? How’d they do that? Well, it’s simple: Nobody stopped them.”
Carlson accused Republicans of running away from “crazed ideologues” who are attempting to destroy the history and culture of the United States.
