New York Times
published a 20,000-word deep
host Tucker Carlson and the
political views he espouses to the biggest audience on cable news.
Now, in the wake of a mass shooting event in Buffalo allegedly
inspired by his ideology, Carlson is coming under even greater
scrutiny. Recorded prior to the tragic shooting events, this
episode explores how Tucker has achieved such popularity, how
liberals have failed to respond effectively, and whether the left
is negligent in largely ignoring the Tucker phenomenon. How does
one push back against "replacement theory," the American
Exceptionalism that wrapped up in the guise of "anti CRT" advocacy,
and a narrative that anticipates accusations of racism and uses
them to argue that Tucker Carlson is the real victim? Is it enough
to refocus the conversation on class issues and point out that the
right is doing faux populism? Does avoiding the culture wars mean
throwing minority groups like Trans Americans under the bus? A
thoughtful panel comprised of Maximillian
& Q Anthony Omene discuss.
