Powerful New Calls for Tucker Carlson to be Silenced

This writer is not the only one being hammered by the Anti-Defamation League of late.
ADL chairman Jonathan Greenblatt has called for the firing of talk show host Tucker Carlson, the ratings king at Fox News, after Mr. Carlson expressed on the air this week his concern that under the Democrats, illegal immigrants would “replace” Americans as future voters.
According to the ADL and the corporate media, any talk of “replacement” is indicative of a “white supremacist” trope.
The charge is ironic in that last January Carlson fulfilled the ADL agenda by defaming the late black academic Tony Martin, parroting ADL disinformation about Dr. Martin’s alleged “anti-Semitism.” Prof. Martin, an honorable and courageous man, was innocent of the charge. He was an enemy of hate made the object of it. It was fairly apparent that Tucker had done no research of his own into Tony Martin’s actual views, content to bear false witness by regurgitating the jaundiced characterizations of Martin’s implacable foes.
However, fealty to ADL ideology on one point is immaterial if one of its acolytes dares to depart from their dogma on any other: the ADL defends the integrity of Israeli borders while lobbying for something approaching the contours of an open border policy in the U.S.
Carlson failed to comprehend how zealously this dual standard is upheld. Now, like Prof. Martin, he too has a target on his back, although as a multi-millionaire who is buttressed by the wealth of the Murdoch family, his reputation will be far better defended than that of the black Wellesley professor whose thought crime was of the truth-hurts-variety—defending the accuracy of the Nation of Islam’s magisterial history book, The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews (which documents the sensitive subject of the Judaic role in the transatlantic black slave trade).
Moreover, Tucker’s approach toward immigrants is misbegotten. He’s not just bucking the Biden administration, the media and “woke” corporations, he’s tilting at windmills erected by “conservatives,” including their hero, Ronald Reagan. In November, 1986 President Reagan established the principle of mass amnesty for immigration law-breakers with his support for the Simpson-Mazzoli Act, which granted amnesty to millions of unauthorized border crossers recruited for purposes of stoop labor on the usury plantations of the monied elite. Cheap labor was the engine that drove the lax border policies of Reagan and George Bush pére et fils, while the motive for the Clinton, Obama and Biden administrations was (and remains) to obtain voters supportive of the Democrat party.
But the case of the Republicans is more perverse. The stoop labor exploiters sold them the rope with which to hang their electoral prospects. Now they’re crying crocodile tears. Tucker doesn’t factor this back story. He’s too often prone to shallow vituperation in place of far-reaching reflection and historical perspective.
What Mr. Carlson has missed is the truth that what he’s lamenting has already come to pass. The Latino vote is a major factor in at least a dozen U.S. states and shutting the barn door after the horse is down the road solves nothing. Fox News enables Carlson’s anger. He’s a popular money maker, so why not? But anger is no substitute for deep thought. It’s a sign of weakness and desperation.
A wise pundit would sincerely offer compassion to the huddled masses on our southern border while undertaking serious reconnoitering of immigration realities: the immigrants are here. They will not be deported en masse. Their birth rate is higher than that of the contracepting feminists and playboys who comprise a substantial segment of the Fox News viewership. Even with no further illegal immigration, the Latino population will multiply significantly. Bring on to “Tucker Carlson Tonight” more conservative Latinos to discuss their border concerns. Provide a platform and offer support to the bilingual, conservative Christian priests and pastors involved in helping to defend the traditional family values of Mexican and Central American people from the toxic consumerism and sexual nihilism of America’s pop culture.
Many Latino people have an inherent orientation toward their Christian heritage of five hundred years’ duration. Individuals, churches and institutions in North America should undertake the cultivation of that noble legacy through education, and other forms of cultural enrichment and provision. In some respects people from south of our border are more conservative than native-born Americans. This inherent conservatism should be protected and enhanced. For example, recent polls indicate that tyrannical Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom has lost the support of many Latinos in California.
Tucker’s aggrieved white guy stance, while cathartic, profits us nothing. The inchoate anger and resentment he’s stirring will inevitably be manipulated by forces far more sophisticated than he. January 6 at the Capitol was a textbook instance of the covert channeling of white rage that has paid huge dividends to a Cryptocracy which lives by violence and the maxim, “Divide-and-conquer.” Divide the Latino, black, Asian and white working classes in America and subjugate them.
The pity of it is, we’ve left our Biblical knowledge back at the ranch.
1. “Where there is no vision the people perish.” (Proverbs 29:18)
2. “The love of money is the root of all evil.” (I Timothy 6:10)
3. The Money Power is the enemy of the working classes of every color.
When we proceed from these facts, our perception is cleansed of the diversions and tribal animosities which the Cryptocracy exploits to our destruction.
The sins of our white, nominally Christian fathers (Ronald Wilson Reagan and his cronies and successors), has led us to this impasse. Pretending it’s 1951 is no way of out of the crises we face in 2021.
APRIL 13 UPDATE ON CARLSON
Has Tucker Carlson been reading our column? On April 12, on his Fox News show, in his opening monologue he quoted a 2010 Anti-Defamation League (ADL) statement warning against the replacement of Israelis by Palestinians. The ADL has called for Carlson’s firing because he warned last week against the replacement of Americans by illegal immigrants. The double standard is blatant and the exposé is a welcome development.
On the same program, Mr. Carlson also mentioned at some length, President Ronald Reagan's catastrophic 1986 amnesty for millions of law breakers. The announcement of this suppressed fact is long overdue, though Tucker did not mention the cheap labor motivation behind the Simpson-Mazzoli Act (which he didn't specifically name). Nonetheless, it's a start. Let the deflation of Mr. Reagan's hagiography begin and along with it, lessons about the evils of Republicans exploiting stoop labor.
Now Carlson should make reparation by apologizing to Prof. Tony Martin's family and large circle of students and friends, for falsely defaming him as an "anti-Semite" and insinuating that he was a hater of Judaism. How about it, Tucker? Care to set the record straight?
