Democrats have crossed every line of decency to take out Donald Trump.
The November election is quickly approaching, but there’s also a question of who will carry the torch for the Republican Party moving forward.
And one Fox News host could be running for president in four years.
The Trump presidency has been an important wake-up call for the conservative movement.
Trump accurately identified the corporate press as the enemy of the American people; the press has the power to start wars and foment civil unrest, and they’re perfectly willing to use it.
Trump has antiwar instincts, which is a return to traditional conservatism and a rebuke of neoconservatism; it’s no surprise that the biggest proponents of the Iraq War despise Trump.
Andrew Breitbart made the salient point that “politics is downstream from culture,” and Trump is willing to fight the culture war that has been one-sided for several decades.
Also, Trump has shown that voters respect a leader who’s willing to stand up to the left-wing mob.
These must be the pillars of the conservative movement going forward, and one person who embodies these principles is Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
Carlson has been the target of left-wing terrorism (radicals tried to kick in his door when his wife was home alone) and endless boycott campaigns for his highly-rated show.
As much as Fox News is reviled by the left, Carlson is particularly hated because he’s so effective at galvanizing the right and exposing the left.
Carlson recently set cable news ratings records for his fearless coverage of the radical left and the cowardice of many Republican leaders.
These are some of the reasons why there are whispers Carlson would be a formidable candidate for president in 2024.
According to a report from POLITICO:
“Sixteen prominent Republicans…said there’s an emerging consensus in the GOP that the 51-year-old Carlson would be formidable if he were to run. Some strategists aligned with other potential candidates are convinced he will enter the race and detect the outlines of a stump speech in Carlson’s recent Fox monologues.”
Carlson’s monologues have been saying what the silent majority is thinking, but has been cowed into silence by the outrage mob on the left.
Rich Lowry of National Review said of Carlson:
“What he’s been saying speaks for a lot of people, and it’s basically not expressed or serviced by most Republican politicians…There’s a lot to be said for being fearless, and he is, while Republican politicians, as a breed, are not.”
Not only is Carlson fearless in defending the culture that the left is so desperately trying to destroy, he’s willing to go after the neocons who seemingly want endless war abroad.
It was Carlson who implored Trump not to bomb Iran and kill 150 people after dubious reports that Iran shot down an unmanned U.S. drone.
Others believe Carlson will stay on primetime cable television, which perhaps is where he’s the most effective.
Either way, Carlson has emerged as one of the most important voices in the conservative moment looking ahead.
