Tucker Carlson Warns of ‘Revolt’ if Biden Doesn’t Apologize for Ending the Afghanistan War

Incendiary commentary has become a daily ritual at Fox News. When they aren’t justifying Donald Trump’s delusional allegations of an allegedly “stolen” election that already incited insurrectionist riots on Capitol Hill on January 6th, they are fomenting fear of a “socialist” take over that will put an end to freedom in America once and for all.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, STFU

No one on Fox News has been more determined to spread dread to his dimwitted viewers than Tucker Carlson. He has fear mongered about “dirty” immigrants “invading” the United States and overwhelming “traditional” Americans (the White Replacement Theory). Carlson has also stirred paranoid panic with dangerously false disinformation about the COVID pandemic and the common sense methods of mitigating harm via masks and vaccines. He even went so far as to encourage his followers to report parents whose children wear face masks to the police as child abusers.

On Monday night Carlson took another step over the cliff of crackpottery by arguing that violent revolution is justified if President Biden doesn’t apologize for successfully ending the twenty year long war in Afghanistan. Carlson was terribly disturbed that he hadn’t seen anybody in the Biden administration take responsibility for the sometimes messy evacuation from a war zone that was entirely predictable.

Of course, Biden himself had explicitly told the American people that he assumed full responsibility for anything that happens on his watch. But that clear and concise message was too complicated for Carlson to grasp. So he unleashed this bit of asininity:

“This can’t go on. When leaders refuse to hold themselves accountable over time, people revolt. That happens. We need to change course immediately and start acknowledging our mistakes. The people who made them need to start acknowledging them or else the consequences will be awful.”

For Carlson to raise the specter of revolt is irresponsible in the extreme. He appears to be lusting for violence, and it doesn’t matter what the reason is. So even though Biden has been open and honest about the tragic circumstances in Afghanistan, Carlson still thinks his viewers should resort to the savagery of an irrational rebellion just on his say so.

Never mind that Biden pulled off one of the most remarkable military operations in U.S. history. He managed the largest personnel airlift ever, safely evacuating more than 120,000 people in less than a month. The one unfortunate incident was a terrorist bombing, but Biden retaliated swiftly and successfully within hours. And for this Carlson thinks Biden should apologize or be subject to a revolt of right-wing barbarians like those who stormed the Capitol last January 6th.

What makes this all the more preposterous is that Carlson’s rant could have been written by a progressive activist and directed at Donald Trump. Read it again and see if it doesn’t apply much more accurately to the explicit denials of responsibility by Trump for everything from the January 6th insurrection, to the 620,000+ deaths due TO COVID-19, to the horrific immigrant family separations, to the unprecedented national debt and income inequality due to his tax cuts for corporations and the rich, to the exacerbation of the climate crisis, and to so many more catastrophic consequences of his ignorance and/or deliberate malfeasance.

Trump has never taken accountability for any of the disasters over which he presided. Nor has he ever acknowledged making a single mistake. So by Carlson’s reasoning, If anyone has the right to revolt it’s America’s Democrats and progressives. And hopefully they will do just that by means of the ballot box in 2022, 2024, and beyond.

  1. “Wholly sh*tshow!”
    With ugly, big-mouth clowns spewing sh*t all over, everytime their nasty lips open up to speak with forked tongue!
    Seriously ~ *ucker Carlson’s daily “lie-lie-palooza” to inflame people that don’t fact-check & prefer their ” news” to be regurgitated lies (they like being angry, haters)…& now, *ucker is basically calling for them to violently revolt (nice word, eh?) over flat-out lies!
    I realize that today’s Rethugs have zero morals & are doing the devil’s work, but is there no point at which laws come into play? Ever?
    How about FCC standards, or don’t we have any lo-ball minimum for what can be called “news”, when it has NO true, factual reporting?!
    *ucker Carlson is setting a false scenario to justify violence — a “revolt” over yet another lie bring fed to those with more hate, than heart & more ammo, than brains. I guess if failed prez can get away with it, then anyone else can do it too!?! It is so EZ to feed some people crap & they eat it up. He’s hard at work, using common techniques to set the stage for a “violent revolt” by the weak-minded folks who believe all the lies from the far-right. And, just like Trump on Jan 6th, *ucker will ‘light the fuse’ & set the violence in motion, then he will run to safety behind big locked doors & his bodyguards, where he can safely watch the bloody results unfold on TV. Faux Propaganda Network will, no doubt, carry it live, spewing a false narrative & claiming it’s justified. Heroic. Patriotic even.
    Spreading faster than a CA wildfire in the wind!

  2. Fux Spews MUST be recognized as a terrorist institution and treated as such. And a terrorist organization should NOT be permitted a 24/7 exposure to the American people. Damn them all.

    • Amen to that! And MJH as well.
      $$, $$ & $$ = Fox Propaganda Network on air 24/7 & definitely a proven danger to this nation & its people, in so many categories of lies & disinformation they spew out every dang day & night – for years now!
      And far from stopping, only seems to get worse with each passing day (& every Covid death). We’ve already seen how allowing FauxNotNews to lie with abandon has spawned more like that & they’re all trying to outdo the original in their dangerous lies. Amplifying hate & anger, daily lies, encouraging violence… This qualifies as “news media”?!? If so, then our standards for broadcasting such filth, are zero/nada/zilch! No more need for an FCC if our “free media” is just a “free for all”. Either we can save tax dollars by eliminating the FCC altogether, or we must use acceptable standards to rein-in the out of control & dangerous fabricated “news” spewing forth from TV, etc.
      News, by definition, needs to be factual info, not made up crap! News is supposed to report on facts, events, to inform the people, NOT to knowingly lie & promote dangerous behaviors! That argument his lawyer gave the court, that what *ucker Carlson says, no one in their right mind would believe – as if they “know better” even tho its on Fox “news” channel? Bunch of malarkey that is!! That’s been proven wrong time & again. His viewers believe him cuz’ “it’s on the news” & they like him cuz’ he feeds their hatred & anger, making them think it’s acceptable, normal. That it’s ok. It is none of that!! With millions of nightly viewers & how it’s shared with millions more on FB…! There has to be a some legal standards & responsibility if calling oneself “news”.
      Long gone are the days of Walter Cronkite & others who you could TRUST to provide you with the real news!
      FCC… Do what you’re paid to do & what people think you do, or close up shop & go home!
      Wishin’ I were a lawyer; I’d sue ’em!

  3. Second kali’s motion. Faux should be shut down for fomenting civil war and encouraging terrorism. Why it has not been is probaby best explained by money and money and money. Not to mention encouraging revolution. So sic of this dangerous outfit.
