Fox News host Tucker Carlson tore into the betrayal by Republican lawmakers in red states on Wednesday, using Utah as a prime example while wondering aloud how long conservative voters will stand for their elected leaders pushing unabashed liberalism via the GOP.

“When you think of American states that have fallen right off the ledge into the deep end of vacuous lifestyle liberalism, and we do think of them from time to time, you probably think of Vermont. Vermont’s a place that banned fracking, despite the fact it has not a single oil or gas well in the state. Or maybe you think of Massachusetts, where virtually all human pleasure has been banned for decades, if not centuries, and of course, you think of California. California… a place where one city is now paying people to be transgender. All of these are famously liberal places, so you’re not surprised,” he in his opening segment on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“But Utah is not a liberal place. When you think of Utah, you imagine big, happy families and an even bigger salty lake and a couple of very good ski mountains. You think conservatism because Utah is conservative. It always has been. It still is. Utah has the highest rate of church attendance in the country. It has one of the lowest crime rates. The birth rate of Utah families is fully 25% higher than the national average,” Carlson noted.

“In the last presidential election, Donald Trump took nearly 60% of the vote in Utah. So, Utah is definitely not California and yet some of its most prominent politicians would very much like to change that. If you don’t believe it, watch them talk some time. They sound like they’re running for city council in Santa Monica. That doesn’t make sense. Talk about a misalignment, a highly conservative state with extremely liberal leaders. How did that happen?” he asked.

“Actually, it’s not as unusual as you’d hope it would be. Across the country, some of the most liberal Republicans represent some of the reddest states. Why? Well, maybe it’s the result of corporate influence and corrupt party leadership. That’s true. Maybe voters in those states don’t feel threatened, so they’re not paying close attention to who they vote for. Whatever it is, it’s very obvious. By contrast, the most energetically conservative governor in the country is not from Alabama, he’s from Florida, which to this day is split almost evenly along party lines,” the conservative host pointed out, referring to Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL).

“Meanwhile, bright red Utah is now led by a cut-rate Gavin Newsom imitator called Spencer Cox. Spencer Cox is a former telecom executive who always seems like he’s auditioning for the title of ‘America’s guiltiest white guy.’ He’s beyond belief. In one virtual town hall with high school students last year in which Spencer Cox announced his preferred pronouns to a young girl in the audience,” Carlson reported.

He went on to eviscerate Cox for his pretentious leftist leanings:

What a creepy guy! “My preferred pronouns are he, him, his,” Cox tells a room full of children. So, we’ve got that cleared up. Spencer Cox identifies as a male, at least to some limited extent. Now, Cox could have cleared up that mystery a lot more quickly, simply by declaring, “I’m a man.” Instead, he went full hostage video, “My preferred pronouns are he, him, his.” Just in case you had any doubt that neoliberal interest groups control Spencer Cox’s brain. Now, you know, for certain, because it’s never about gender. It’s always about obedience.

Spencer Cox is obedient, if nothing else, but not obedient to his voters. That’s the weird thing. What exactly is the market for superfluous pronouns in Utah? Pretty limited, you would think. Most people in Utah don’t need to be told yet, somehow, Spencer Cox is their governor. In a piece today, a really good piece, Nate Hochman of National Review reports that the very first document Cox signed as governor of Utah was something called the “Utah Compact on Racial Equity, Diversity and Inclusion” and it’s everything you’d imagine and more.

The document describes racism as, “more than just an individual character flaw.” No, racism instead is a system that you participated in, Mr. and Mrs. racist, a system that can only be stopped with “bold anti-racist actions and policies right now.” Whoa, whoa, whoa, you know you’re in trouble, Mr. and Mrs. Utah voter. What are these policies? We’ll let Spencer Cox explain. Spencer Cox, wearing his little obedience mask during a Zoom interview, explained that he supports excluding White students from an academic scholarship program purely because of their skin color because that’s anti-racism. No, it’s not racism, it’s anti-racism.


Cox also vetoed a bill that would have banned men from competing in women’s sports. He was overridden by two-thirds of the legislature.

Carlson lambasted Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) as well over his support for leftist Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson.

He highlighted that reporter Greg Price summarized Mitt Romney’s past few weeks in a very astute manner, “…confirmed Ketanji Brown Jackson, voted against repealing TSA mask mandate, didn’t show up to vote defunding Biden vaccine mandate, accuses Tulsi Gabbard of treason for opposing the war in Ukraine.”

“…you have to wonder where Mitt Romney is coming from. Is he participating in the system called democracy? Because the majority of Republicans, the people who put him in office, would like Tony Fauci to leave his job immediately, but not Mitt Romney. He doesn’t care at all,” Carlson continued.

“Mitt Romney is not alone, of course, neither is Spencer Cox. It turns out a lot of Republicans in red states serially betray their voters, give them the finger day, after day, after day. The question is: How long will Republican voters put up with this?” he concluded.
