Fox News host Tucker Carlson descended into a wild tirade against “liberal elites” on Thursday, accusing them of “ruining” America’s cities and arguing that they need to have their passports seized before they tried to escape the United States.
Instead of analyzing the Trump administration’s poor handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, which brought most of the problems affecting the nation, or the deaths of Black Americans at the hands of the police, the right-wing pundit blamed “BLM and antifa, crazed ideologues, grifters, criminals, antisocial thugs with no stake in society and nothing better to do than hurt people and destroy things.”
But the majority of his ire was aimed at wealthy Americans.
“American cities didn’t collapse by accident. Sociopathic children may have burned Wendy’s and looted the Gucci store, but rich adults made it possible. They paid for it all,” Carlson said.
“The entire subscriber base of The New York Times has been seized by a frenzy of destructive rage. They’re throwing plates around the kitchen, beating the dogs, smashing the windows,” he continued. “At some point, they’re going to wake up from this bender and realize they’ve destroyed their own home. And their first instinct, as it always is, will be to leave, to split for St. Bart’s. But we should not let them. We should seize their passports now. They did this; they should have to live with the consequences ― in midtown.”
