Tucker Carlson Heritage Speech; Historic, Ironic, Scary And Hopeful

Tucker Carlson Heritage Speech; Historic, Ironic, Scary And Hopeful — Tucker Carlson addressed the Heritage Foundation, April 21, hours after his last show with Fox News and three days before the suits fired him despite his being the most-watched cable newsman.

“The most likely outcome is the most ironic outcome,” he said in the short discussion with Heritage President Kevin Roberts that ended his appearance.

He was quoting Elon Musk whom he just interviewed.

The hit-you-in-the gut part of Tucker’s talk come about half-way through when he starts talking about abortion and transgender surgery.

“Policy papers don’t account for it at all,” he said. “If you have people who are saying ‘I have an idea, let’s castrate the next generation; let’s sexually mutilate children’, I’m sorry that’s not a political debate . . . What’s the outcome we are desiring here? An androgynous population? . . . I don’t think that anyone could defend that as a positive outcome.”

He points out though that the weight of the government and a lot of corporate interests are behind that.

“What is that?” he says. “Well, it’s irrational.”

He said he understood the traditional debate regarding abortion i.e. sometimes it might be necessary vs protecting life.

“But if you are telling me abortion is a positive good, what are you saying? Well, you are arguing for child sacrifice. . . When the treasury secretary stands up and says ‘You know what you can do to help economy? Get an abortion’ that’s like an Aztec principle,” he said.

“What’s the point of child sacrifice? Well, there’s no policy goal entwined with that. That’s a theological phenomenon . . . none of this makes sense in conventional political terms. When people, or crowds of people or the largest crowd of people of all, which is the federal government, the largest human organization in human history, decide that the goal is to destroy things . . . which you’re watching is not a political movement, it’s evil.

He explained that humanity has always had an understanding of good and evil.

“Good is characterized by order, calmness, tranquility, peace, lack of conflict, cleanliness . . . and evil is characterized by their opposites, violence, hate, disorder, division, disorganization, and filth,” he said. “If you are all in on the things that produce the latter basket of outcomes, what you’re really advocating for is evil.”

Tucker’s quote regarding irony concerned how the the internet was causing ignorance.

“The core promise of the internet was as much information as we’ve ever had at your fingertips and the result has been the centralization of information –deliberate . . . but unnoticed by most people — (that) results in more controlled information that we could even have imagined 20 years ago,” he said.

“So a lot of information just is not available because it’s digital and it’s controlled by a small number of companies. Polling suggests that a lot of Americans — and I don’t mean hundreds but hundreds of millions of Americans – have no idea what’s going on. They don’t know the facts about certain things. It’s not because they are dumb or distracted on their iPhone. The whole point of the iPhone was to inform you and the net effect has been people completely ignorant of the . . . non-disputed facts about a lot of different things and you saw this certainly during Covid. That challenges the idea of democracy which rests of the notion of an informed voting public.”

Tucker said to save non-digital media like books because they can’t be revised by Big Brother. He said to prioritize the tangible, especially personal relationships.

“As the world becomes more digitized and people live in this . . . realm that’s disconnected to physical reality, I think the only way to stay sane is to cling more tightly to the things that you can smell. I’ve gotten to the point where if I can’t smell it, I’m not dealing with it and that includes books.”

Tucker encouraged all Americans to pray for their country for 10 minutes a day.
