While many are focusing on the 13 arrests and the stunning display of violence in and around America’s Capitol, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson captured a different perspective.
“This afternoon, a group of Republican staffers on Capitol Hill, lawyers who work for Republican elected officials texted each other and concluded that actually now that we think about it, yesterday’s protest rally really was racist. Yes, it was racist. Those are the people protecting you,” Carlson said.
While not condoning the violence, Carlson argued that the GOP doesn’t actually care for the lower class. In fact, he says they “sneer” at it.
The main problem – and this really is the main problem — on the right, anyway, the people who run the Republican Party don’t really like their own voters and they especially don’t want the voters that Trump brought.
Trump brought the party’s ranks noticeably downscale from the country club to the trailer park as they often sneer, and this horrifies them. Many Republicans in Washington now despise the people they’re supposed to represent and protect.
Carlson said this is a huge problem that must be addressed for the GOP to move forward.
