Tucker Carlson just explained everything that is wrong with America — in only four minutes.
Tucker Carlson skewered Kathy Griffin while condemning the victimhood culture of the Left. He claimed that Kathy is “the perfect embodiment of what the modern Left believes.”
“Griffin publicly fantasizes violently about killing the president, yet she holds a press conference to announce she’s the one whose been wronged,” Carlson said.
Yep, that about sums up the modern Left. Progressives will routinely commit some grievous offense just to claim victim status for the inevitable backlash they receive.
The best part for liberals is that their victim status is a one-way street. Barack Obama, once the most powerful man in the world, is a victim of “racism”? Meanwhile, Sheriff David Clarke is an “Uncle Tom” for denouncing Obama?
In a liberal’s mind, being a victim has absolutely no connection to how oppressed you are. In fact, some of the biggest victims on the Left are millionaire celebrities and politicians.
It is the poor and middle-class Americans, apparently, who are victimizing these millionaires. How are they doing it? By virtue of the personal beliefs they hold, which may or may not be “bigoted”.
Victimhood has become the latest sacred cow in American politics. It receives more protection than religion or free speech in many states. Claiming to be a victim grants almost unlimited sympathy, and victim status can only be lost by disagreeing with liberals.
This is why liberals love to coddle Muslim extremists. Muslim radicals learned years ago they could rely on the Left to do their bidding so long as they pretend to be oppressed. Coining terms like “Islamophobia” grants Muslims unlimited protection. Suddenly it is “racist” to question why 20-year-old bearded Syrians are allowed in the same classroom as 13-year old girls.
Essentially any group that does not completely align with traditional American values is eligible for victim status. At the same time, conservatives who respect these traditional values are eschewed as “old white men” or bigots. The Left dehumanizes all those who disagree with them, thereby casting themselves as the pinnacle of morality.
This is the result of pure brainwashing. Television personalities such as John Oliver and John Stewart have demonized conservatives through unfair ridicule so thoroughly that it is unthinkable for young people to call themselves Republicans.
The temperament that has been cultivated by the modern Left is the same as those found in cults and communist countries. By casting themselves as morally superior to all conservatives, you can justify the most brutal of treatment against your fellow Americans.
