(PresidentialWire.com)- Tucker Carlson, the most popular news anchor on cable television, hit out at Democrats this week and argued that the party won’t allow any criticism or dissent on the matter of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. He also slammed proposals to stop the Russian state-owned media outlet Russia Today from broadcasting in the United States and Europe.
Carlson said on Monday night that in the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Democrats and their allies in the media have done everything that they possibly can to shut down dissenting voices on the conflict. He said that several American journalists have been banned from talking in the media if they don’t agree with everything the Democrats say about the war, and noted that the Democrats “hate populist politics in this country far more than they hate Vladimir Putin.”
“So they’re using this opportunity, this war in eastern Europe, to shout down domestic dissent in the United States,” he added.
Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Canada dropped RT from its airwaves. There have also been discussions in Britain’s Parliament about the possibility of banning RT, though Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Foreign Secretary Liz Truss have so far stood in the way of those plans and argued that such a decision could result in the BBC being removed from Russia.
Carlson said that the tragedy of the Ukrainian invasion is being used by the Democrats as a “justification” to shut down journalists and news organizations that question the Democratic Party.
He played a clip of left-wing Senator Mark Warner, a Democrat representing Virginia, in which he admits to having asked social media platforms to take down Russian “propaganda.”
Think about it…if social media platforms will take down Russian propaganda now, then all the Democrats need to do in the future to silence Republicans is to claim that their content is “Russian propaganda” and make the same requests to the social media platforms.
Carlson seems to be right on this one.
