On Monday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson slammed Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg over the indictment of former President Donald Trump.
Carlson suggested the United States is under a “state-sponsored anarchy” controlled by a “Soros-inspired justice system.”
“In a new Soros-inspired justice system, decent people are the criminals, while the criminals are now a protected class. Here’s how it works,” Carlson said in his opening monologue of Monday’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” show.
“The people in charge unleash chaos in our cities. But if you dare to protect yourself or your family from that chaos, you wind up in handcuffs. What is this? Well, the name of this system of governance is anarcho-tyranny. You get state-sponsored anarchy, accompanied by political tyranny,” Carlson continued before ridiculing the Manhattan district attorney, Alvin Bragg.
“Since taking office, Bragg has done his best to increase the anarchy. He’s increased the number of felony charges his office drops by nearly 40%. That includes almost half of all drunk driving charges. It’s no longer really a crime to drive drunk in New York City. That’s the anarchy part. But, for those that step outside the political lines, it is tyranny.”
Mentioning a case where a man defended himself “against a lunatic who was trying to murder him,” Carlson noted how the same system “is putting Joe Biden’s main political opponent in the upcoming presidential race on trial for a crime that’s not actually a crime.”
“This is the political tyranny part of an act of anarcho-tyranny,” Carlson added before claiming the current legal system appears to be at “a point of no return.”
The Fox News host went on to say the Trump indictment does not indicate a “turning point” in the US. It merely helps CNN’s ratings, Carlson said. “So, Trump’s upcoming arraignment tomorrow isn’t a turning point in our country’s legal system. It’s yet another chance to follow Trump around in the hope that ratings will return.”
