Fox News host Tucker Carlson took a look at the unhinged anger on the left Wednesday over the possibility that Roe v. Wade may be overturned, calling it “government by tantrum” as pro-choice advocates took their rage to the streets and the media branded Justice Samuel Alito a “hater.”

“Everybody in America is for democracy. Democracy is the basis of our political system. Both parties support democracy strongly. They often say so and of course, the alternative to democracy is bad. It’s tyranny and nobody is for that. So, it’s heartening to learn that preserving democracy is the main idea, really the only idea, behind Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion on the Roe v. Wade decision. Virtually everyone in the country has heard about Alito’s 98-page opinion since it was leaked on Monday night to Politico and yet, at the same time, for all the talking about it, almost nobody seems to have any idea what is in it. Nobody’s actually read it,” Carlson pointed out.

“Partisans on television keep describing Sam Alito as a hater, somebody who just hates women and hates rights, a sadist whose only pleasure is extinguishing human freedom and happiness, both of which, of course, are predicated on abortion. That’s what they’re saying about Alito. Now, we’re not familiar with Sam Alito’s soul, so we can’t confirm or deny this either way. But we can tell you, having actually read his opinion, that there is no hint of any of this in what he has written,” he continued.

“In fact, there’s not even an attack on abortion. He could be pro-choice, for all we know. Samuel Alito merely argues that Americans have the right to vote on how abortion is regulated and for nearly 50 years, Roe vs. Wade has prevented voters from doing that. It has taken that right from them. That’s it. That’s the sum total of the supposedly controversial opinion by Samuel Alito and if you don’t believe it, here’s how that opinion concludes: ‘The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each state from regulating or prohibiting abortion. Roe and the Casey decision abrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives,'” Carlson read from the opinion.

“Now as a factual matter, not that facts seem to matter too much, but if you cared about them, you couldn’t really argue with that claim, because the Constitution does not, in fact, prohibit American voters from banning abortion or for that matter, does not prohibit American voters from legalizing abortion because the US Constitution doesn’t mention abortion or allude to it in any way. And anyone who claims that it does, as the Roe decision claims, is lying to you. Read the document for yourself. It’s online,” he stated.

“So why exactly is everybody so mad at Samuel Alito? It’s strange because what Alito is proposing here is the very definition of democracy. We’ve got a bitter disagreement, in this case, over abortion. Both sides have a case to make. They can take that case to the public. In the end, the public gets to decide who’s right by voting on it. That’s called self-government. Since when is that scary?” Carlson asked.

“Well, since one side decided that self-government is too risky and had to be eliminated. Now, they couldn’t say this out loud, of course, because, as we told you, the alternative to democracy is tyranny and no one can be for tyranny. So instead, they played yet another word game, because that’s always how it starts. They inverted the definition of the word ‘democracy’ to mean exactly the opposite of what democracy has meant for thousands of years since Athens. In Washington at this point, the word ‘democracy’ now means ‘We’re in charge of everything. Shut up.’ That’s almost exactly how they’re defining democracy,” he asserted.

“Just today, Biden declared that people who insist on voting for things are not only wrong, they’re the single greatest threat facing the United States. People who still believe in yesterday’s understanding of democracy, where they have power, are more dangerous, Joe Biden said, than al-Qaeda, the Weather Underground, even the Nazi Party. These people are terrorists, and you know what we do to terrorists?” the conservative host quipped and then quoted President Joe Biden.

“This is about a lot more than abortion. What happens if you have states changing the law, saying that children who are LGBTQ can’t be in classrooms with other children? Is that legit under the way the decision is written? What are the next things that are going to be attacked? Because this MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history,” the president outrageously claimed.

Using the same theme, Biden also attacked Florida Republican Sen. Rick Scott’s tax plan that goes after welfare system abusers and billionaires, calling it the “Ultra-MAGA Agenda” and disingenuously claiming it would “raise taxes on 75 million American families.”

Carlson went on to elaborate on Biden’s assertions:

Everything about that is a lie. It’s hard to believe that’s the president of the United States. Of course, it’s not a decision, it’s an opinion and that opinion says explicitly this reasoning applies only to Roe v. Wade and abortion, and it should not be construed as applying to anything else. It says that flat out. If you read it, you would know that. He didn’t, clearly.

So, what he said is a lie, but here’s the line that you should never forget and we’re quoting, “This MAGA crowd,” (which is to say the tens of millions people who voted for Donald Trump) is really, we’re quoting, “the most extreme political organization that has existed in history.”

In history, all human history, which is to say worse than Hitler, worse than Stalin, worse than Mao. It’s hard to believe he’s talking about tens of millions of American citizens, but he is. And you should know that no American president ever has talked about his own people like this or even considered talking about his own people like this. It is shocking that any president would and he just did and it’s easy to see where it goes from here. What do you do to terrorists? Well, you know what you do. You kill them. It doesn’t matter if they’re American citizens. Barack Obama told us that. You just drone them. They’re terrorists. Terrorist must die. So, you should pay close attention to what any president says from the podium, particularly when it’s Joe Biden, and everything he says, he reads because he has no choice.


Carlson went on to accuse the Biden administration and the left of ginning up hatred that could lead to violence, “What are we seeing? We’re seeing a coordinated effort by the Joe Biden administration to recharacterize political dissent as terrorism. ‘Disagree with us, you’re al-Qaeda, you’re Hitler.’ So, to get people to accept this, they’re not using rational arguments because there is no rational argument for this. It is the definition of tyranny, erasing democracy, replacing it with autocracy and force. So instead of convincing people, they’re using what they always use, which is fear and hate. They’re whipping people into a frenzy.”

He continued to allude to the dangerous rhetoric by the left referring to the meltdown by Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), “‘I’m so angry,’ she says, her voice breaking. ‘I’ve never heard you so angry, ‘ says the deeply sympathetic journalist. ‘Much more angrier than I’ve ever been.’ Of course, she is. Angry is what she is. Elizabeth Warren is angry full-time. She’s anger embodied and in that way, she is the perfect standard-bearer for her party, the party of weak men and unhappy women, the party of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. The hallmark? Irrational and enraged and also, by the way, dangerous because irrational, enraged people are, by definition, dangerous.”

“Now, the Twitter account Libs of TikTok, which they’ve been trying to pull off the internet because they show you what’s actually happening out there, just posted this video of abortion enthusiasts calling for violence in the wake of the draft opinion,” Carlson continued.

“Weak man and unhappy women. That’s the party right there and also, by the way, people who commit violence, but when they commit violence, it’s not insurrection. It’s not a threat to our democracy. It’s just taking to the streets and expressing yourself, even if you set fires and rush into state legislatures, into capital buildings. Not insurrection because the new rules are if you agree with the regime, you can do whatever you want and if you don’t, go to jail,” he charged.

“And everybody knows this and that’s why people who agree with the regime were out last night causing mayhem and violence on the streets of Los Angeles. They were so upset that voters in other states, states they don’t live in, might have the right to exercise democracy and vote on abortion that they attacked the police,” Carlson said just before playing a video of leftists in Los Angeles getting their violence on.

“What are we watching here? Well, we’re watching government by tantrum. It’s what we’ve had for quite some time. You got to give these children what they want, or they scream and kick and bite. They go crazy. They’re so angry, as Elizabeth Warren said. ‘I’ve never seen you this angry.’ ‘I’m so angry.'” he continued.

“But it’s not just people burning things in the streets of L.A. who think this. This is the attitude up and down the food chain, from the people who torch Wendy’s and go and, you know, loot the Apple Store, to the students at Yale Law School, which I think has sent more Supreme Court justices to the bench than any other school,” Carlson noted.

“Yale Law was a place people took very seriously. Now it’s hard to. Students there deface school property with chalk to protest Alito’s draft opinion. ‘It’s fascism,’ the students wrote, to allow people in the states to vote on something that affects them. It’s fascism to allow people to vote on something! Right,” he remarked.

“So, you know how this works. They don’t want to have an argument. They want you to shut up. This isn’t a colloquy, it’s a soliloquy. It’s just them talking, no dissent allowed. You’re talking is disinformation and if you persist in talking, they’ll go after you,” Carlson concluded.
