The Democrats are the pot calling the kettle black, according to a stunning statement from Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.
“The people in charge are intent on replacing our free democratic system with an authoritarian system where they don’t convince you of anything, they simply make you do things and they benefit from that,” said Carlson. “There are people in this country who are opposed to that…But one thing we know for certain is that they are totally opposed to authoritarianism, so that really is the divide. People are for an authoritarian America and those who are for a free America, it’s that simple, and once you start to understand politics through that lens, you figure out what’s really going on.”
Then Carlson dropped the hammer:
What is absolutely clear is that according to a new poll from Pew, Democratic Party voters understand what this means, and what it means is, in a free and fair democratic system, they can’t win.
If we allocate power based on who is the most popular with the public and that’s the basic premise of democracy, the Democratic Party is in very tough shape, and they know that. And that may be why according to polls, Democrats know overwhelmingly want the government to make their political opponents shut up.
More than three quarters of Democratic Party voters want the tech companies to quote: “Restrict false information online even if it limits freedom of information.” Think about that for a second. More than 60 percent of Democratic voters want the Federal government to quote, “Control that flow of information over the internet.”
So all of that contravenes the First Amendment to the Bill of Rights, which is the very core of our system of government and of our culture. It is what makes America great. And now, the overwhelming majority of Democratic voters are against it.
So that’s authoritarianism. There is no other word for it and it is ironic considering for four years, prominent Democrats told us we were living through a fascist system. Donald Trump is a fascist. But of course they were describing their own attitudes.
