Tucker Carlson is the number one target of the left.
Every day Carlson faces a new accusation in an attempt to silence him.
Hillary Clinton thinks Tucker Carlson committed one crime that put jaws on the ground.
Tucker Carlson is the loudest voice on the right skeptical of U.S. involvement in Ukraine.
Carlson believes the United States continuing to escalate tensions with Russia could lead to a nuclear holocaust if Russia reacts badly.
But Carlson’s long been a skeptic of U.S. foreign interventions.
This is not a new position.
However, since Carlson advocates for an anti-war position that runs counter to the pro-intervention sentiments in the establishment of both parties, elites smear Carlson as a traitor.
Hillary Clinton interviewed The Atlantic’s Anne Applebaum and the topic of Carlson came up.
Applebaum is one of the queen bees of the liberal foreign policy establishment that favors intervention abroad and falsely believes Donald Trump was a stooge of Vladimir Putin.
Clinton asked Applebaum – who is somehow considered an expert despite getting every major foreign policy question wrong – about how the Russian government views Trump supporters like Tucker Carlson.
“How do you think Russia views somebody like Tucker Carlson and the other Trump apologists?” Clinton wondered.
Applebaum didn’t merely say Carlson was wrong or that he took too soft a line on deterring Russia’s expansionist ideology.
Instead, Applebaum reached back for the lazy smear that the establishment always resorts to when challenged on foreign policy.
Applebaum falsely claimed that Tucker Carlson and other Trump supporters support autocrats and hate America.
“The role of the Trump apologist is truly interesting. For me, it invokes the left-wing apologists for communism in the last century. I think their behavior comes out of something similar- their dislike of their own country, of the United States, the nature of modern America is so strong that they are looking for alternatives anywhere. Even if those are autocratic,” Applebaum stated.
Applebaum then asserted – without citing any evidence – that Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin fed Carlson specific talking points that the Russian government wanted to see on the air.
“I don’t know exactly where Tucker gets his information but some of it is quite specific. He’s made specific comments about things the Ukrainians have done that someone is feeding him information about how to describe the war and giving him ideas. Then, of course, that information is very, very useful for the Putin regime to play it back on Russian TV. Tucker Carlson appears quite frequently and it’s used as evidence that ‘we have support in America’. He’s literally a useful idiot. He’s getting information from someone with ties to Russia. I don’t know who that is and I don’t want to speculate,” Applebaum stated.
“He’s acting as a conduit for the Russian government,” Applebaum declared.
Hillary Clinton nodded her assent with Applebaum’s smears that Tucker Carlson is a Russian agent.
“Mm-hmm,” Clinton readily agreed.
The left’s tried to get Tucker Carlson canceled for years.
Now with opposition to Russia running high due to Putin’s evil invasion of Ukraine many on the left think they found the silver bullet to silence Tucker Carlson or diminish his influence in American life.
