“Big Business Hates Your Family:” Tucker Carlson Savages Corporate Libertarians at National Conservatism Conference

Carlson questioned the pro-big business dogma associated with the ‘free markets’ wing of the conservative movement.

Published

Primetime Fox News host and populist commentator Tucker Carlson savaged the conservative establishment in a groundbreaking speech at last week’s National Conservatism Conference in DC.

Carlson took a torch to the conventional ‘free-market’ wisdom espoused by Republicans for decades at the conference, which was put on by “Virtue of Nationalism” author Yarom Hazony.

In the hour long speech, Tucker questioned the virtues of a socio-economic system in which big businesses take in massive annual profits, but average working-class Americans of all demographics find it increasingly harder to afford raising families and becoming homeowners, elements of American life taken for granted by previous generations.

Tucker made it clear that the primary threat to conservative Americans no longer primarily comes from ‘big government,’ but private companies under the domination of corrupt oligarchs like George Soros, the Koch brothers, and Mark Zuckerberg.

The main threat… to your ability to live your life as you choose does not come from the government anymore, but comes from the private sector.” 

Watch Tucker’s groundbreaking speech here:

It should bother people on the right,” Tucker remarked about unchecked corporate power. “But it doesn’t… Because again, their minds are captive to an antiquated way of looking at the world. The ‘build-your-own-Google way.'”

Tucker did throw some ice water on the prospect of a future Presidential bid in 2024, making it clear that his kids would figuratively kill him if became a candidate for the office.

Lifelong warhawk and White House National Security Advisor John Bolton was presented as the conference’s other keynote speaker. Bolton’s remarks appear to have been comparatively ignored in the light of Tucker’s speech, meriting a mere 662 views on the conference’s YouTube channel, well behind Tucker’s 10,000.

Tucker Carlson SLAMS Never Trumper David French: “Buffoon”

Tucker pointed out that the legacy conservative couldn’t have a job outside of the DC swamp.

Published

Tucker Carlson took National Review’s David French to task after the latter bashed him, firing back in an interview with the Atlantic.

The Atlantic’ Elaina Plott profiled Carlson’s nationalist populist views in their extended discussion, inserting a fair amount of liberal editorial perspective in her coverage of the interview. She included a statement from French, the longtime National Review writer, that claimed Tucker needed to do something to “overcome” supposed “race problems” prevalent within the right-wing populist school of thought.

Tucker responded appropriately.

David French is a buffoon, one of the least impressive people I’ve ever met. Only in nonprofit conservatism could he have a paying job.”

French has consistently made bogus accusations of prejudice against those on the right-wing that disagree with his stale neoconservative political positions.

In the piece, Tucker also slammed the corruption of establishment conservative organizations such as the American Enterprise Institute, pointing out that the handsomely-funded think tank had released propaganda in favor of oxycontin distributor Purdue Pharmaceuticals.

French represents the old guard of conservatism, in which massive corrupt private equity domination of the economy is merely to be accepted, even if it means the wholesale destruction of life and economic prospects in countless American communities. It’s not surprising that he’d resort to strawman arguments in an attempt to demonize Tucker, who has served as the point man in introducing new economic ideas to a conservative movement sorely in need of them.

Tucker Carlson Tonight continues to outpace its network competitors in TV ratings combined. Given Tucker’s popularity, it might not be too soon to ponder about the cable news host’s potential 2024 Presidential candidacy.
