A choir of centrist-aligned voices within conservative media have sought to fire back at Tucker Carlson after a segment from his show about the self-interested and disloyal nature of the American ruling class caught on and inspired conversation throughout right-leaning circles.
In the segment, Tucker touched upon failed Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, bringing him up as an example of the corrupt and untrustworthy political class lacking in any sense of loyalty or obligation to the broader American people. The accusation was particularly applicable towards the Utah Senator, who made millions of dollars in his corporate career through firing American workers and outsourcing their jobs to India and China.
Tucker went on to take the ruling class to task for a deeply flawed definition of “prosperity” pervading through American political life, in which the importation of cheap consumer goods and GDP growth were the sole arbiters of national health, with mass drug addiction and declining life expectancy a tertiary concern at best.
The viral monologue became the topic of debate and discussion, and several prominent voices sought to defend the plutocratic elites Tucker targeted. Among them included National Review’s David French, Ben Shapiro, and the New York Times’ Bret Stephens.
The hand-wringing of anti-populist “conservatives” seeking to counter Tucker’s set of points took a predictable tone. According to them, the American people who choose to reboot the system with a wild card in the form of Donald Trump’s shock victory in 2016 are whiners. They’re ungrateful of all the incredible gifts elites have supposedly provided them- drug addiction, economic decline, declining familial prospects for young Americans, and lowered wages be damned.
If you think that “government” should take any role in improving the fundamental life prospects of Americans, you’re unappreciative, according to the apologists for the plutocratic establishment Tucker thoroughly took to task.
Florida’s DeSantis Will Fly State Flags at Half Staff in Honor of Radio Legend Rush Limbaugh
Limbaugh was a Floridian.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis confirmed that he would issue an order to fly state and US flags at half staff in honor of radio legend Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh died earlier this week of cancer.
DeSantis spokeswoman Meredith Beatrice confirmed that the governor would issue the order after Limbaugh’s funeral arrangements are announced. The flags will be flown at half staff the day of the radio legend’s burial.
Originally a native of Missouri, Limbaugh moved to West Palm Beach, Florida in the late 1980’s. He became the most-listened to radio show host in the history of the United States, if not the world over the duration of his career.
Speaking of Limbaugh’s legacy Thursday on Fox News, DeSantis credited appearances on Limbaugh’s show as pivotal moments for his 2018 campaign for Governor of Florida.
“He had me on when I was running for Governor,” DeSantis said. “I was getting the tar kicked out of me every day and he had me on the week before the election in 2018. He didn’t have a lot of guests. I was honored to be on his show a couple of times.”
He would have been great in radio even without the conservative thing. He’s just that talented. Obviously he was a conservative icon up there with Scalia, Reagan, and Buckley,” said DeSantis of Limbaugh.
Florida Democrats have rushed to assail the Florida radio legend’s character and blast DeSantis for recognizing his life, accusing Limbaugh of being a “racist.”
