Tucker Carlson used the opening monologue of his Fox News show on Monday to declare, “The Democrat party is now a religious cult.”
“The party has descended into a purity spiral, and nobody is safe, not even the party’s own leaders,” he continued, noting that dissent has been effectively banned.
As evidence, he noted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is under attack from a leftward fringe of her own party led by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, with that tiny caucus calling her a racist for not letting them make decisions for the party.
“Give us power because of our skin color,” Carlson characterized the comments of congresswomen like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib (both D-MN).
Carlson also mentioned Democrat presidential frontrunner Joe Biden as evidence of his comments. Biden is under fire for saying he could “get along” with segregationists in the 1970s.
