Fox News host Tucker Carlson took to the air to drop some truth bombs about the trucker protest happening in Ottawa, Canada.
“Carlson speculated there was a fear in the U.S. media that those protests could come South,” reports Breitbart News.
Carlson referred to the reactions of MSNBC morning show hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski as proof that protests might move down into the United States borders.
“‘Workers of the world unite. You have nothing to lose, but your chains.’ That’s from Karl Marx, of course. He wrote that famous phrase in 1848. The weird thing is, it’s pretty likely that Marx himself never met an actual worker,” Carlson said.
“Wait a second,” Carlson continued. “He didn’t spend a decade in a cotton mill witnessing the oppression firsthand? No. Karl Marx never spent a moment in a factory. He was a rich kid who became a journalist. Of course, he was.”
“But for more than 150 years, Karl Marx inspired generations of other rich kids who also became journalists to repeat his line or variations of it. Over time, workers became working men or working class, and then with feminism, working people or working families, but the idea itself never changed. Ordinary people, wage earners are getting shafted,” Carlson added.
“Watch what happens when actual workers, working people from working families who constitute the working class, actually come together as a group to protest how things are going. What happens then?” Carlson asked.
“Does the intellectual class greet these workers as heroes through a parade? Listen intently to their stories? Does NPR do a sympathetic feature on them? Or do self-described progressives recoil in revulsion and horror at the grubbiness of the people who as we used to say, work for a living? Do liberals immediately denounce them as Nazis and called for their suppression by force? That’s the question. What’s the answer?” Carlson asked again.
“Well,” he said, “ask Trump voters what happens, they’ll know.”
“Most of the time, trends start in the United States and they move north to Canada, but this time, the opposite could happen,” concluded Carlson.
