Take a Breath; America Is Still a Decent Country Filled With Decent People, by Tucker Carlson and Neil Patel.
What’s the point at which rhetoric forces action? When do words become incitement? At what point do political attacks get so reckless and unhinged that you can no longer heal the divide they create with politics? It’s hard to know exactly, but the left is getting very close. …
But at MSNBC, it wasn’t even the weirdest thing recently said on air. That distinction goes to Frank Figliuzzi, a former FBI official turned talking head-conspiracy nut. He used numerology to explain the president’s coded messages:
“It’s the little things and the language and messaging that matters,” Figliuzzi said. “The president said that we will fly our flags at half-mast until Aug. 8. That’s 8/8. Now, I’m not going to imply that he did this deliberately, but I am using it as an example of the ignorance of the adversary that’s being demonstrated by the White House. The numbers 8, 8 are very significant in neo-Nazi and white supremacy movement. Why? Because the letter H is the eighth letter of the alphabet, and to them, the numbers 8, 8 together stand for ‘Heil Hitler.”
Got that? Eight is a racist number. That’s MSNBC’s position. In other words, things are getting dangerously crazy on the left. How crazy? On Monday, former Jeb Bush spokeswoman Nicolle Wallace explained that Trump is planning a genocide of Hispanic Americans: “President (Barack) Obama used the power of the presidency to try to pass comprehensive immigration reform with the Latino community, Latino leaders at the table,” Wallace said. “You now have a president … talking about exterminating Latinos.”
The left is now telling you — and demanding that you believe — that anyone who supports Trump is a white supremacist and must be destroyed. They’re telling you that for political reasons. It’s election season, and they want more power. But there are other reasons, too.
Ever wonder why rich people seem the most hysterical on the subject? Ever notice that it’s the highest-paid people on TV who are the most determined to convince you white supremacy is America’s biggest problem? Why is that? Simple: Every minute you spend angry about race is a minute you’re not thinking about class — which, of course, is the real divide in this country.
Working-class people of all colors have a lot more in common with each other than they do with some overpaid MSNBC anchor. If you were allowed to think about that long enough, you might start to get unauthorized ideas about economics.
No to tribalism:
This is a time of frustration and change. But America is not on the brink of genocide, not even close. This is not a white supremacist country, plotting the slaughter of its own people. It’s a kind country, full of decent people of all races who, like all people everywhere, make bad decisions from time to time but mean well and generally try their best. Going forward, give them the benefit of the doubt, even when you disagree with them — maybe especially when you disagree with them. These are your fellow Americans. Cut them a break. They deserve it. Remember: The alternative is disaster.
Reaping the harvest of the left’s switch around 1990 from championing the working class to gaining an electoral majority through identity politics. This is rapidly morphing into blatant anti-white racism in the US — which will be coming soon to a western country near you.
