Maybe he might even pick up a mainstream national advertiser or two?
From today, here are Tucker’s 3 things voters must demand from the Republican Party (via Fox News):
The host called on Republican voters to “demand three things from their candidates. And if they don’t provide them, don’t vote for them.
“First is vigorous defense of total equality under the law. We are equal because we are citizens. Every American has precisely the same rights as every other American. Period.”…
Carlson next called on Republicans to “defend our freedom of speech.”
“We are not a free society without that,” Carlson said. “This is not simply a debate about the First Amendment and its limits. It’s bigger than that and more important. If you can’t articulate something, if you’re not allowed, you can’t think. And that’s precisely why authoritarians try to control language. They’re trying to control your mind. Republicans should lead the fight against this without shame. Americans have the absolute right to tell the truth. This is not negotiable.
“Nor, by the way, is it a theoretical concern of interest only to intellectuals. Everything depends on it. If you can’t think freely, you can’t solve problems. Try to build a hydro plant or fly a commercial airplane. If certain categories of thought are off limits to you, it doesn’t work. The power grid collapses. Planes crash. Society degrades. No speech means no science, no art, no civilization.
Carlson’s final point was “we must never forget that in the end, the Republican Party exists to serve the interests of normal people.”
In lesser news, iSteve broke the one million page view mark in June, my highest monthly figure since a handful of million page months in 2017-2018.
All it takes for Tucker and me to get high ratings is anarchy in the streets.
Of course, maybe if more people had listened to us years ago, this social collapse could have been forestalled, and thus we wouldn’t look like such accurate prophets in June 2020.
I could have lived with that …
