Carlson on the ‘Russia Hysteria’: ‘The People in Charge Have Lost It’

During a Tuesday monologue for his Fox News Channel show “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson discussed the “massive” cost caused by the “Russia fixation.”

“[T]here’s been a cost to our Russia fixation, a massive one,” Carlson declared. “Years later, we’ll look back and wonder what happened. How did everyone in America with an Ivy League education go insane in a single year? Was there some kind of mass poisoning? Ergotism? Historians will sort it out.”

“For now, all we know that the people in charge have lost it,” Carlson declared. “Listen to them explain the intricacies of the Russia conspiracy. They’re mesmerized. It’s a tale so complex and riddled with internal contradictions, it sounds like eastern religion. Only they really understand it. To them, Russia is the touchstone. It’s the comprehensive theory of everything.”

Carlson played a clip of MSNBC terrorism analyst Malcolm Nance claiming Russia began a disinformation campaign in the early 2000s, which MSNBC anchor Brian Williams did not push back on.

The Fox News host mocked the two for entertaining the idea of “Russian brainwashing.”

“It goes without saying that all of this is completely insane. There’s no evidence to support any of it. It is not true. Worse than that, it’s irresponsible,” he stated of the “propaganda.”

  1. Re: “How did everyone in America with an Ivy League education go insane in a single year?”

    It’s been building up in wakademia for some time now, but as with all “insanity” and “mental illness” it’s easily explained:

    Here’s how the so-called “soft” sciences aka “humanities” (anthropology, psychology, sociology, and even Law or criminology) really work: They all started off by examining the various symptoms and EFFECTS of human behavior, thinking, group-thinking behavior, and of criminal free-will CHOICES, respectively, but then self-invalidated by looking for hidden mysterious predestined and predetermined inevitable force “CAUSES” of it all, which degraded them all into only one criminal, excuse-making alibi topic:

    “VICTIMOLOGY!”

    So we get these two, permanently opposed philosophical poles:

    Law-abiding Conservatives: “Criminal behavior is an effect of free-will choice!”

    Criminal libertines: “But what CAUSED that choice? There’s always a cause!”

    Their implication is that there are no crimes nor criminals because we’re all “victims.”

    In short: they went from studying HOW people CHOOSE to act, to focusing on WHY (ruling out free will choice entirely)!

    And that “why” PRESUMES a fear of pain will ALWAYS trump rationality! “So” we are all really ever only helpless victims! Asking “why” people (‘always’) give in to the fear of pain, presumes that: “SINCE anything CAN go wrong, SO it WILL always go wrong, SO we MUST forgive everyone for their mistakes, as being helpless victims!”

    But in reality, the only reason WHY people commit crimes, is that they still think they can have rights without responsibilities, and so they weigh all the risks and rewards in different situational circumstances first!

    And they only try to do so in each and every separate circumstantial situation, because they haven’t learned that rights ALWAYS only come with responsibilities, causes with effects, and effects with causes, and so they either remain ignorant of, or choose to ignore, the simple Golden Rule of Law moral Principle:
    “Do Not Attack First.”

    BOTTOM LINE:

    These days, uselessly PITYING the victims (and the criminals AS “fellow victims,”) is held up as the highest moral virtue, while being usefully ANGRY at, (or “hateful” towards) criminals and crime is deemed to be the most vile sin.

    But what is more useful in solving problems and remedying crime: being angry at criminals for their predatory choices, or encouraging them to commit more crimes, by pitying them as helpless victims too?

    The answer is obvious.

    Hope is NOT a Plan.

    But (beyond keeping the masses controlled by shaming them into giving up their right to get angry at oppressors, by tricking them into substituting useless static pity for useful dynamic anger) the motto of all governments everywhere will always remain “There’s No Money In Solutions, so Please Give Generously – AGAIN!”

    So it’s high time to educate these higher-learning “educators” of their mistakes!

    In always asking “But WHY?” like perverse little children bedevilling their parents, they can always step back any given answer and exploit it into a whole new and lucrative “specialized” academic field of study!

    But the focus they pretend to thereby gain in minutae actually loses the focus on the big picture or “unified field” of science itself – by deliberately reducing everything they become absurd, or “reducio ad absurdum,” to the Latins.

    And, while the simple answer IS obvious to us, unfortunately so is their own criminally negligent desire to “fail upwards” by ignoring the simple easy and permanent solutions to any and all problems, in favor of exploiting and selling the almost infinite number of mere symptoms and effects of unsolved problems as causes in them selves, as eternal crises for which only temporary band-aid therapy reliefs can ever be applied.

    After all, the motto of all responsibility-averse and willfully delinquent libertine “liberal” criminals must be: “There’s No Money In Solutions, so Please Give Generously – AGAIN!”

    So their final message these days seems to be:
    “Anyone who doesn’t automatically pity all criminals as fellow victims should be hated!”

    BOTTOM BOTTOM LINE:

    All criminals are hypocrites, and all hypocrites are criminals.

    Paranoia IS Masochism IS Hypocrisy: “You’re always out to get me so I’m always your victim so it’s never my fault!”

    When such libertine “liberal” criminals lose an election, they can’t blame them selves for losing or their immediate opponents for beating them fair and square, so they have to look for another ‘inevitable force” excuse outside the two.

  2. People didn’t vote for Trump because of “Russian meddling”. People voted for Trump partly because we were literally ill from eight years of Obama and his islamoleftistglobalist policies and the Democrats only offered more of the same.
