The demagogue is one who preaches doctrines he knows to be untrue to men he knows to be idiots. ―H.L. Mencken

Bad government is the natural product of rule by those who believe government is bad. —Thomas Frank

Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind. —Einstein
I’m a nationalist. —Trump

The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country. —Hermann Göring

I can’t even begin to comprehend how someone as fucked up and stupid as this can even begin to string enough words together to write a book...even one so obviously full of gibberish.

I think it becomes easier to understand this sort of guff when one sees it in the context of a coordinated right-wing project to de-legitimise its political opposition. I think this idea can be supported from the clip itself, as we're implored to consider those who oppose US fascist and neo-Nazi groups as being brands of Socialist Terror while at the same time absolutely no mention is made of the ethos or agendas of the groups anti-racists are opposing. The moral crime here is, simply, to oppose the advocacy of fascist and neo-Nazi ideas - which for the purposes of this project are deliberately rendered in the most innocuous of terms, that is; as simply being 'different' or 'alternative' ideas to those of anti-fascists. Anti-fascists are intolerant and violent for opposing groups which advocate and agitate for mass violence against a sizeable swathe of the general population and have, by association, been responsible for 350+ murders this century. FOX are peddling propaganda, pure and simple - and not only do they know it, they are eager to do it because they are the mouthpiece for a powerful political organisation: that brand of Corporate Capitalism that has successfully financialised both political and social relations across the Western World.

Having noted the many posts here castigating Trump for firing John Bolton and bemoaning the loss of his contribution to the foreign policy of the US, I can only conclude that Tucker Carlson is correct. :drool:

'Tucker Carlson: John Bolton Is a "Man of the Left" and One of Trump Admin’s "Most Progressive People"'
Fox News host Tucker Carlson opened his primetime show Tuesday night by celebrating the ouster of National Security Adviser John Bolton, claiming that the hawkish neo-conservative was actually a “man of the left” and a progressive.

Carlson, who privately advised President Donald Trump earlier this year to ignore Bolton and not take military action against Iran, said that Bolton leaving the Trump administration was “great news for America.”

“Especially for the large number of young people who would have been killed in pointless wars if Bolton had stayed on the job,” the Fox News star added. “They may not be celebrating tonight but they should be.”

...

“Rather than justify or even explain his own record, Bolton brags that he spent a lot of time on the job,” Carlson declared. “If you are wondering why so many progressives are mourning Bolton’s firing tonight, Bolton himself fundamentally was a man of the left.”

“There was not a human problem John Bolton wasn’t totally convinced could be solved with the elite force of government,” he continued. “That’s an assumption of the left. Not the right. Don’t let the mustache fool you. John Bolton was one of the most progressive people in the Trump administration.”

Interestingly, while Carlson was dancing on Bolton’s grave, accusing Democrats of supporting him, and tying the extreme neo-con to the left, he didn’t once mention that Bolton spent over a decade as a Fox News contributor before Trump hired him.
