According to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, believing in God, family, and nation is not radical, but liberal politicians and media outlets insist it is and label it “fascist” because it threatens their capacity to impose real fascism.
Discussing this week’s election of conservative Giorgia Meloni as Italy’s new prime minister, Carlson said that liberals are labeling her “fascist” because her pro-family, pro-faith message is a threat to politicians who seek the total obedience of the citizenry:
“So, that’s the person who’s being described all over American television, including on channels that should know better, as quote, ‘far right?’ That’s far right? Really? Because she acknowledges that American families are under attack. Of course they are. You think it’s accidental? No.
“And she explains why. It’s simple: if you want to establish totalitarian control over a country, of course you have to destroy the family first. Because nobody with deep family loyalty, the one thing every person should have, will ever pledge absolute obedience to a politician. Why would you?
“So, if you want absolute obedience, you have to sever family ties. That’s why state schools brainwash your children with values that you despise – and then instruct your children to turn you in as a thought criminal, if you object. That’s happening. It’s not your imagination and it’s happening for a reason.“
“Wokeness is not just a political ideology, it’s not just something annoying that emerged on college campuses that we can ignore. It’s a state religion that supplants actual religion which is also being destroyed,” Carlson said:
“There is a reason the strip bars and the liquid stores and the weed dispensaries stayed open under COVID, but the churches didn’t. If you don’t connect those dots you’re missing it.”
While faith in God and commitment to family isn’t fascist, attacking these things in the pursuit of power is, Carlson noted:
“So, they hate your family, they hate your religion and you don’t actually have to put up with it, because it’s a democracy and you are supposed to be in charge – you being the population.
“That’s a radical message: God, family, country? That’s not radical. It’s hard to imagine a more wholesome message or more pro-human platform.
“Fascists don’t believe in God, because God is a rival to their power, of course.”
