WATCH: Tucker Says ‘Leaders Show No Obligation to American Voters’ in Bruising Monologue
In an incredible 15-minute monologue Wednesday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson took the political establishment, both left and right, to task for failing to carry out their primary duty – ensuring a high quality life for ordinary Americans.
The monologue is nearly impossible to describe in full, but using the launching point of big bank-loving, establishment shill Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), Carlson blasted the ideology that has produced a great deal of wealth in America while at the same time causing a significant drop quality of life for ordinary people. The topics of discussion ranged from the breakdown of the traditional family, to jobs for ordinary people being lost forever, to increased drug use among normal people, all happening while political elites plunder the system, using it as their own vehicle for obtaining wealth and power.
At one point, Carlson said:
The goal for America is both simpler and more elusive than mere prosperity. It’s happiness. There are a lot of ingredients in being happy: Dignity. Purpose. Self-control. Independence. Above all, deep relationships with other people. Those are the things that you want for your children. They’re what our leaders should want for us, and would want if they cared.
But our leaders don’t care. We are ruled by mercenaries who feel no long-term obligation to the people they rule. They’re day traders. Substitute teachers. They’re just passing through. They have no skin in this game, and it shows. They can’t solve our problems. They don’t even bother to understand our problems.
Discussing the “finance based economy” and “internationalist foreign policy” that leads to never-ending war and outsourced jobs, he continued:
There are signs, however, that most people do not support this, and not just in America. In countries around the world — France, Brazil, Sweden, the Philippines, Germany, and many others — voters are suddenly backing candidates and ideas that would have been unimaginable just a decade ago. These are not isolated events. What you’re watching is entire populations revolting against leaders who refuse to improve their lives.
