Tucker rings the tocsin.
During Thursday’s airing of Tucker Carlson Tonight, the host, a supporter of Trump, said that it may be “tough” for Trump to win reelection if he does not adequately respond to civil unrest in the country.
“Not many people are saying it out loud on the Right. But the fact is that President Trump could well lose this election. In fact, unless fundamental facts change soon, it could be tough for him to be reelected,” Carlson said in his opening monologue. He said if former Vice President Joe Biden wins in November, the White House will be controlled by “radicals” who will “remake the country.”
“We’re fully aware that virtually nobody watching this show tonight wants to hear that, but it’s true, and key people around the president know that it’s true. They’ve seen the numbers,” he added. All the while, the chyron banner that appeared on the bottom of screen blared in all capital letters: “President Trump may lose this election.”
Carlson asserted that social cohesion in the country is eroding after nationwide protests have occurred following the Memorial Day death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
“An awful lot of people voted for Donald Trump precisely to avoid a moment like the one we’re now in,” Carlson said, stating that Trump’s instincts were on the side of order, tradition, and stability, but Carlson later remarked that during the rioting, Trump “said little” and “did less.”
Doc Zero sees it too:
Trump's big political problem right now is that he talks about "law and order," often with all-caps tweets, but he isn't delivering any. He's running like a challenger, not an incumbent. Even people who agree with him aren't excited by this "hapless but loud bystander" routine.

Bonchie, too, is shaken:
Tucker Carlson took to the airwaves last night and delivered a message some don’t want to fathom. Namely, that Trump could actually lose the 2020 election. Later, he would make his case by laying out the current chaos engulfing the nation, the shifting public sentiment against the President, and by playing audio of a woman having her car attacked by rioters. She was told by the 911 dispatcher to “call city all” and that she was in the middle of a “sanctioned event.” Eventually, the mayor of her city would apologize, not to the terrorized woman, but to the rioters.
It was a powerful reminder that people are being abandoned across the country, whether it’s business owners in the “CHOP” or residents in Democrat cities in red states. Governments are failing their people out of a fear of retribution, or in some cases, direct support of anarchy. But perhaps more troubling, and something Carlson brought up, is that so many voters seem to agree with or sympathize with the chaos.
There’s simply no “seem” to it. Not when they’re in your face, burning your city, and beating you about the head and neck with skateboards, there isn’t. Then again, anybody who, after having Proggy throw a brick at his head and cave his skull in with it, nonetheless still refuses to face up to what Proggy is deserves what he’s surely going to get. Because Proggy doesn’t stop. He never stops. He doubles down.
Like the “security moms” of the Bush era, many voters put Trump in office, not because they are enamored with his personality, but because they saw him as strong. He’s not currently living up to that image. To many on the right, that’s not a bad thing. They want to see people in these Democrat run cities reap the consequences of their voting patterns, with the assumption that they won’t like it and will turn back.
But what if there is no backlash coming? Carlson points that possibility out by noting that GOP leaders in Congress, in all their fecklessness, have said little about the current chaos except that it’ll blow back on Democrats. Everyone keeps thinking we’ll reach the end of the track on crazy train, but the truth is, the train never gets there. People just end up giving ground and becoming more and more conditioned to the current reality. The only real way to not let this become the new normal is to stop it.
That means Trump has to retake the initiative. The case for Trump was never to sit back and watch the country devolve into chaos. Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz could have done that with a lot less consternation about their tweeting. Trump was not elected for his awesome personality or ability to bring the country together. People know that, and I don’t think anyone is pretending that’s who he is. He was elected precisely to avoid moments like we are currently in. It’s not a coincidence that his failure to take action over the last month has led to his worst approval ratings in recent memory. Meanwhile, Trump was tweeting about Carly Fiorina yesterday, someone most swing voters don’t even know exists.
The Left has continually wailed about Trump being a dictator since 2016, then wilfully acted in such a fashion as to require dictatorial measures to reign in their madhouse excess lest it destroy the nation. Well, so be it, then. They’re going to wail and call him “Hitler” no matter what he does. So give them something to wail about for real. Crush them. Crush them utterly.
Different take from me. I tire of this shit, of saving the progs from their selves.
So, defund the democrat controlled police departments. Fine with me.
I hope the democrat controlled cities burn to the ground. I wouldn’t piss on them to put out the fire.
The mass exodus will leave those trying to get out, the same ones that voted for the commies, with worthless real estate. Fine with me.
I don’t give a damn.
I’m with Barry. Let ’em burn.
There’s nothing of value to us in Democrat urban hives, and we lose nothing we need care for if they’re razed to the ground.
Of course, to make the lesson stick, you need to stop the refugees fleeing the cities from entering at the borders of your state.
By the way, as I didn’t watch him: did Tucker name an alternative to Trump? I’ll bet he didn’t.
You don’t get a prime time gig on the puppet show unless you’re a puppet master, a puppeteer, or a puppet. Tucker Carlson ain’t one of the first two.
So what purpose does he serve for the puppet show? What goal(s) does he advance for them? He has to serve one, advance one or more, or he wouldn’t be in it.
That he is in it means that sure as shit he’s not there to serve our purposes and goals.
Biden will apply the jackboot directly to conservatives while Trump as President will watch Dems burn themselves out.
Hmmmm, still a tough choice, right?/s.
They baited Nixon into Kent State and then sat there for a year calling him a murderer.
Hopefully Berkeley and Kent State can burn themselves out while Trump protects Statues in non-Dem areas.
That was Nixon’s response after Kent State and he landslided 1972.
This is going to be the election that tells me, definitively, if we are headed for a violent break up. Trump wins in a landslide, there are enough people paying attention and willing to right the ship that we have more time. Trump loses and the country is > 50% fucked up, and we will have a revolution.
Doesn’t mean the progs wont pull violent shit when Trump wins, but it can be dealt with violently.
The left are not bothering to be subtle any more, if they ever were. They will tell you what they intend to do. Right now, we are hearing “burn down the system.” If President Trump wins a second term (basically, if Dem vote fraud is limited to the traditional level rather than their proposed all out mail-in plus “ballot harvesting” fakery), the blue hives will burn even more than have recently.
And as already noted, no one outside the hives will care. Let them burn, and leave it entirely up to the hives to rebuild — if they can. No taxpayer bailouts, reconstruction packages, nothing. If the insane toddlers break their toys and trash the nursery, leave them to live amidst the ashes.
