Tucker Carlson stated that the “mandate” of hatred of Russian President Vladimir Putin misses the mark, and America’s ire should be targeted at the failing Biden administration.
Carlson began his Tuesday night monologue on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” questioning why it is that the Washington elites not only hate Putin themselves but demand the public hate him as well, suggesting the Russian leader is being used as a scapegoat.
“Since the day Donald Trump became president, Democrats in Washington have told you it’s your patriotic duty to hate Vladimir Putin,” Carlson stated. “It’s not a suggestion. It’s a mandate. Anything less than hatred for Putin is treason.”
“Hating Putin has become the central purpose of America’s foreign policy,” Carlson went on. “It’s the main thing that we talk about. Entire cable channels are now devoted to it. Very soon, that hatred of Vladimir Putin could bring the United States into a conflict in Eastern Europe.”
With the ramifications made clear, Carlson asked one basic question, “What is this really about?”
This led to a series of introspective queries that challenge the “hate Putin” narrative: “Why do I hate Putin so much? Has Putin ever called me a racist? Has he threatened to get me fired for disagreeing with him? Has he shipped every middle-class job in my town to Russia? Did he manufacture a worldwide pandemic that wrecked my business and kept me indoors for two years? Is he teaching my children to embrace racial discrimination? Is he making fentanyl? Is he trying to snuff out Christianity? Does he eat dogs?”
Carlson pointed out the obvious answer that no, “Putin didn’t do any of that,” before furthering the debate as to why Washington elites hate him as much as they do. U.S. defense of Ukraine couldn’t have anything to do with “Joe Biden’s personal debts to Ukrainian oligarchs. Not at all,” Carlson sarcastically stated. “It’s completely and totally unrelated.”
Calling Ukraine a tyranny based on Ukrainian President Zelenskyy arresting political opponents and shutting down news outlets that criticize him, Carlson arrived at the crux of the matter. Why care about one tyrant encroaching on another tyrant when the only possible outcome is going to be a continued negative impact on the American economy.
“Energy prices in the United States are about to go way up, and that means that everything you buy will become more expensive,” Carlson explained, “from the food you eat to the car you drive, to the tickets you need to take your family on vacation this summer, assuming you can still afford a vacation by then. You’re about to become measurably poorer.”
“That’s not a guess,” Carlson asserted. “Joe Biden has admitted this.”
Carlson then went on to point out how those making the rounds on the media keep suggesting war is coming, and in some cases advocating for it. Vice President Kamala Harris has said, “I mean, listen, guys, we’re talking about the potential for war in Europe,” stating it was a “real possibility” as she has been tasked with aiding in diplomatic solutions.
Former Ambassador John Bolton went on MSNBC to say that a “Russian invasion and takeover of Ukraine” would “adversely affect American national security” and that “we should have had more American forces in Ukraine.” Carlson summed it up by saying Bolton thinks Joe Biden hasn’t been forceful enough before musing, “Let’s try a winter war in Russia. No one’s done it before, but we have high hopes.”
Carlson returned to the real issue facing the American people as oil nears $100/barrel, “it’s highest price since 2014,” Joe Biden has offered no solutions for energy needs. “Every person knows nothing will tank our economy faster than cutting off the supply of fossil fuels,” Carlson said, even “energy experts like Sandy Cortez” know “a country of 340 million people can’t run on windmills and solar panels.” Meanwhile, they shut down domestic energy pipelines.
Carlson, who has consistently held the belief that those in corporate media and the Democrat elites hate the United States more than Putin, suggested, “Maybe expensive energy would be good for the many renewable deals their friends and donors are invested in.”
“We don’t know the answer,” he concluded. “We do know that all of us are about to suffer. So we hope that hating Vladimir Putin was worth it.”
