Leftist Writer at The Nation Calls for Tucker Carlson to be Ostracized

Published

on

Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson was recently called out by Jeet Heer of The Nation.

Tucker drew criticism about his recent comments on congresswoman Ilhan Omar and her ungratefulness as an immigrant.

He specifically said “Ilhan Omar is living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country.”

Carlson added, “A system designed to strengthen America is instead undermining it.”

In response to Carlson’s comments, Heer opined that “There’s nothing new about racism from either Fox News or Carlson’s mouth.”

In Heer’s view, Carlson’s supposedly “toxic” behavior has “reopened a debate about whether progressives, either leftists or liberals, should appear on the right-wing network.”

Certain leftists such as Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept and independent journalist Michael Tracey have been on Carlson’s show. In response to Carlson’s choice words for Omar, author Molly Crabapple commented, “Self identified leftists, stop going on Tucker’s White Power Hour to agree with him.”

Heer identifies Tucker’s strategy in trying to appeal to the Left:

Carlson is as insidious as he is odious and therefore very cunning in trying to channel popular anti-war sentiment into a right-wing unilateralism, as well as recasting grassroots anti-business sentiments into a conservative opposition to the supposed cosmopolitan elitism of woke capitalists.

By having leftists like Greenwald and Tracey on his show, Heer argues that “Carlson is trying to co-opt aspects of their anti-establishment message for his own project.”

The anti-war causes that Tucker promotes draw leftists like Greenwald and Tracy to his show to discuss issues that otherwise get ignored by the mainstream media. However, many leftist gatekeepers like Heer want to make sure that so-called “white supremacy” be stopped at all costs.

That usually means that contrarian voices like Carlson should be completely disavowed regardless of what is brought to the table. People can’t agree on everything, but there should at least be a consensus that the never-ending wars must go away.

For too long, concentrated interests have made a killing off of the suffering of foreigners and have completely turned the U.S. into an overstretched empire.

Fretting about comments in the distant past seems petty, especially when we have the opportunity to move forward on an issue like foreign policy intervention. Calling for the isolation and ostracization of people like Tucker Carlson does us no good.

If we want to progress on these issues, we need to avoid the toxic nature of identity politics and actually work together to move forward.

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows Makes Attempt to Nab Traitorous Leakers

Published

on

On July 12, 2020, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows announced that he gave several pieces of information to suspected leakers.

According to Axios, Meadows has proceeded to do this “to reporters — a trap that would confirm his suspicions.”

“Meadows told me he was doing that,” commented one former White House official. “I don’t know if it ever worked.”

The Trump administration has been plagued with leaks since day one. Meadows has taken it upon himself to find the leakers and expose them for subverting President Trump’s agenda.

One leak that recently infuriated Trump was involved an alleged Russian plot to pay the Taliban bounties to kill American soldiers.

Trump was also furious when the New York Times revealed that the Secret Service took him down to the bunker while riots raged outside the White House.

Although Meadows has not caught any high-profile leakers so far, a source close to Meadows said he is “focused on national security leaks and could care less about the palace intrigue stories.”

However, during a recent podcast with Ted Cruz, Meadows revealed that they discovered and fired a federal employee who was caught leaking information about a White House social media executive order.

Trump will ultimately need to get his house in order if he wants to keep his agenda coherent and intact.

One of the overarching themes of the Trump administration has been in its inability to tame subversive advisers and other actors within the administration.

This allows for Trump’s America First agenda to be derailed while legacy institutions like the defense industry benefit greatly.

D.C. is in desperate need of a cleanse and it starts within the executive branch.
