The left loves to claim that Trump is an authoritarian. In a recent monologue on his show, Tucker Carlson dismantled that argument. He showed, quite clearly, that it is the deep state which is the real authoritarian force in America.
Here’s a partial transcript via Real Clear Politics:
Tucker Carlson: Real Authoritarians Are The Ruling Class Who Want You Dependent, Not Trump
OK. Let’s say you really were an authoritarian and you wanted to weaken American democracy and impose a kind of oligarchy on the country. How would you go about doing that?
Well, you’d probably start by trying to control what people say and think.
If citizens dissented from the mandated orthodoxy or dared to consider unauthorized ideas, you target them, you’d shame them on social media, you’d shout them down in public, you’d get them fired from their jobs, you’d make sure everybody was afraid to disagree with you.
After that, you would work to disarm the population. You take their guns away. That way, they’d be entirely dependent on you for their safety, not to mention unable to resist your plans for them.
Then, just to make sure you had quelled all opposition, you’d systematically target any institution that might oppose or put brakes on your power. You’d be especially concerned about churches, the family, and independent businesses. You’d be certain to undermine and crush those using laws and relentless propaganda…
Sound familiar? We are not talking about Donald Trump. For all of his faults, Trump isn’t doing any of that. Our ruling class is. And that’s what all these issues are really about.
