I don’t have a problem with what Tucker Carlson is doing.
I actually agree with Brian Stelter that FOX News has dramatically upped the dosage of their content since Donald Trump lost the election. It is clear to me that White racial attitudes have hardened since the George Floyd riots. The Republican base has gotten much more racially anxious. They have begun to wander off the FOX News reservation to OANN and Newsmax. The Democratic Party has also gone nuclear in their rhetoric in accusing Republicans of “racism” and “white supremacy.” The Republican establishment has also crumbled and is really no longer in any position to police the Right.
There will be people in the comments who say that Tucker is sucking people back into the GOP and this is terrible because Republicans are scam artists (which I obviously agree is true), but that has always been his job. The only thing that has changed is that the content has improved and the gap between us and the audience has narrowed quite a bit. We also said all along that Trump losing the election would “accelerate” things. We’re talking about black-on-white crime, anti-white discrimination and demographic replacement now on the biggest show on cable television. Would you rather go back to the days of The O’Reilly Factor? Would you rather him not talk about these issues?
The fact that Tucker Carlson is talking about these issues on FOX News is a symptom of these changes. The taboo on “racism” has been undermined by the likes of Robin DiAngelo and Ibram X. Kendi. The new standard is that all White people are “racists” by definition. The Democrats have gone to the metal on anti-whiteness which is understandably pissing off Trump voters. Crime is also an issue that deeply resonates with the Center of the electorate and deeply divides Democrats and works to the favor of the Right. Thus, it is not surprising that Tucker Carlson is talking about it. It makes sense.
BTW, let’s not forget that this topic is highly appropriate:
“Meanwhile, the city’s traditionally conservative Buckhead area also saw a rise in voter registrations, with nearly 60% of voters in the Buckhead-area precincts casting ballots for Biden. In 2016, about 51% of voters in those same precincts chose Democrat Hillary Clinton. …
Buckhead has long been seen as Atlanta’s most conservative enclave, a patch of red atop a sea of blue. But that may be changing, the data suggests. Amid a wave of new registrations there, thousands more voters went to the polls this year compared to 2016 and shifted the outcome bluer than in recent contests.
The precinct that includes the Chastain Park neighborhood, for example, voted 51% for Joe Biden. Donald Trump won that precinct by 11 points in 2016, and Mitt Romney won it by 43 points in 2012. Incumbent state Rep. Deborah Silcox, who represents much of the area, was also ousted this year by Democratic challenger Shea Roberts.
Some neighborhoods, including those off West Paces Ferry Road and Northside Drive where the Georgia Governor’s Mansion is located, still voted nearly 60% for Trump. …”
Buckhead went big for Joe Biden.
Georgia went blue in 2020.
Joe Biden carried Georgia because the people who we talk about every day on this website voted for him. It was affluent, college-educated White professionals who live in big cities and wealthy suburbs who swung toward Joe Biden across the entire country, but especially in the Atlanta area.
