Over the last several years, Democrats have become experts in projection. They regularly accuse others of what they themselves are doing.
During a recent monologue on his show, Tucker Carlson focused on this topic, specifically with an eye to authoritarianism.
As usual, he made an excellent case.
Here’s a partial transcript, via Breitbart News:
CARLSON: We’re going to do something a little different for the next hour, we are going to try to explain what this country is fighting itself about. What are the lines that divide us? It is pretty obviously not the old partisan divide that the rest of us grew up with, Republican versus Democrat, you’ve figured that out now. You look over at the Democratic side you see Rashida Tlaib, you’re pretty certain she is not on your side, obviously.
But then the question is, is Mitch McConnell on your side? And the answer as you well know is no, not really.
So what divides us? What is the dividing line? And it’s really simple.
The people in charge are intent on replacing our free democratic system with an authoritarian system where they don’t convince you of anything, they simply make you do things and they benefit from that.
There are people in this country who are opposed to that. They are anti- authoritarian, and if you look at who we book on this show, that may explain why we do it. You may have noticed, we have a lot of former lefties on the show — Glenn Greenwald, is the most obvious; Alex Berenson as well, and many others.
Now, we probably don’t agree with these people on a lot of things. Are we on the same side on abortion? We’ve never asked.
But one thing we know for certain is that they are totally opposed to authoritarianism, so that really is the divide. People are for an authoritarian America and those who are for a free America, it’s that simple, and once you start to understand politics through that lens, you figure out what’s really going on.

There’s a reason why Tucker has the top rated show on cable news now. This is it.
