Personally, I find that one of the toughest things to watch is politicians pandering to their audience.
Wednesday night’s maiden Democratic debate? Yikes.
The endeavor struck me as a showcasing of the incredibly out-of-touch breaking their necks to out-woke each other.
At points, I got the impression they’d have sawed off their limbs if it would’ve clinched victory.
In light of the spectacle, on Thursday, Tucker Carlson announced: the Democratic Party has officially gone insane.
He opened with this:
“Elite Democrats have permanently broken from reality. They no longer care about what’s true, what’s possible. Even what’s real. They live in a kind of dream state — a place of fantasy punctuated by howls of self-righteousness.”
Then he barreled into the antics Julian Castro, which were also covered by Sister Toldjah.
Take it away, Tucker:
“[K]eep in mind he was an actual cabinet secretary in the Obama administration — it was only a couple of years of ago. Watch as he explains that men who get pregnant have a moral right to taxpayer-funded abortions. I’m not joking.
Sadly, he really wasn’t.
I give you the most insane thing I’ve ever heard a politician say:
“I don’t believe only in reproductive freedom; I believe in reproductive justice.”
Note: The way he says “justice” is good for at least 4 or 5 views.
“And, you know, what that means is that just because a woman — or, let’s also not forget, someone in the trans community, a trans female — is poor doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have the right to exercise that right to choose.”
Right — some men want to have abor– hey, wait a minute…
Back to Tucker:
“And so, they cheered. Behold, late empire liberalism in full flower. Who exactly is the constituency for Castro’s idea? Men dressed as women who get pregnant — that’s the constituency.”
It gets better:
“Unfortunately, there are precisely zero people on Planet Earth who fit that description — not a single person, actually. There never have been any people like that. There never will be any people like that. Why? Because it’s impossible. Biological men cannot get pregnant. Pretending otherwise is lunacy. It’s the very definition of lunacy.”
As I pointed out here, Democratic politics appear to have been particularly penetrated by people saying things that sound good but make no sense. Tucker alluded to the same:
“[J]ulian Castro doesn’t care. Taxpayer-funded transgender abortion sounds like something that all good progressives should support. So Castro fervently does. And critically, he knows that nobody in the room will defend science or pause to ask him, ‘What the hell are you talking about??’ They can’t say a word. They’re too intimidated. They know HR is watching. So they nod like monkeys, as if everything he is saying is completely sane. ‘Oh, good point, Mr. Secretary. Trans-females shouldn’t have to pay for their own abortions. That’s racist.'”
Tucker went on to lambaste Julian and Elizabeth Warren for suggesting illegal immigration shouldn’t be illegal.
Next, he played a clip of New York Mayor Bill deBlasio doing something I’ve relayed before (here): touting himself as a governmental Robin Hood, primed to take money from the wrong people and giving it to the right ones:
“DeBlasio promised to seize your money and give it to his supporters, who he explained deserve it much more than you do.”
There’s certainly some weird stuff goin’ on on their side of the aisle.
