Carlson: No Company Has Hurt US More Than Twitter

“It’s hard to think of a company that’s hurt this country more than Twitter. Maybe there are some. I can’t think of one.

Carlson: This Ukraine Scandal “Isn’t Very Shocking”

“We’re at the end of a second full week of total saturation Ukraine coverage. That means every channel, every hour of the day.

But no. Even now, …

Carlson: Adam Schiff Is “Demonstrably Mentally Ill”

“Part of this is our fault in the media. We set up these just terrible incentives where you don’t get on television unless you say extreme and mindless things.

Tucker Carlson: Nobody Cares About Trump’s Secret Deals With Foreign Leaders, This Is Just A Power Grab

Carlson Cheers Firing Of “Progressive Leftist” Bolton

“If you’re wondering why so many progressives are mourning Bolton’s firing tonight, it’s because Bolton himself fundamentally was a man of the left. There was not a human problem John Bolton wasn’t totally convinced could be solved with the brute force of government. “That’s an assumption of the left, not the right. Don’t let the mustache fool you. John Bolton …

Tucker Carlson Blames Mass Shootings On Marijuana

“In the aftermaths of the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, the country scrambled, justifiably, to understand what motivated the killers.

Fox’s Tucker Carlson: Calling Out White Supremacy Is A “Leftist Diversion” That Will Lead America To Civil War

“Ever notice that it is the highest-paid people on television who are the most determined to convince you that white supremacy is America’s biggest problem? Why is that? Simple.

Carlson: Blaming Trump For Shootings Is A “Joke”

“So, 31 are dead tonight and the only thing that these people can think about is how to terrify Americans into voting for them. These are our so-called political leaders. They are disgusting. They’re also totally unimpressive, unequal to the task of fixing a society, that on some days like today for example, seems on the verge of collapse. “Maybe …

Carlson: It’s Racist To Want Diversity In Congress

“Here’s Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib explaining that Pelosi is oppressing people of color. ‘Give us power because of our skin color’ — that’s the argument Tlaib is making. Many make that argument, Ocasio-Cortez made the very same case during her Democratic primary campaign last year. By definition, it is a racist pitch. It’s every bit as repugnant as a white candidate …

Carlson: Democrats Want To Ban Speaking English

“You thought this was your country, just because, like your ancestors, you were born here, just because you pay half your income to the government to keep the whole thing going, you thought it was your country.

Tucker Carlson Shames Rape Victims For Late Reporting

“I can’t get past a simple fact, since rape is a real thing, it is an act of violence, and there’s actually quite a bit of it in the United States, and some of it is downplayed, by the way, as you well know. I can’t get over the fact that people accuse rape 25 years or 20 years after …

Tucker Carlson: If White Supremacy Is Such A Huge Problem, How Did Cory Booker Get Elected To Senate?

“Cory Booker’s parents were highly paid IBM executives, he grew up in a rich all-white neighborhood by the way, he attended Stanford, then he got a Rhodes scholarship and went to Oxford.
