At the recent Risk On 360! Global Success Conference in Las Vegas, Tucker Carlson delivered a stirring speech, warning of an unprecedented year ahead for America. His remarks were laden with criticism of the current political and cultural landscape.
Carlson touched on a broad range of topics, from the state of the nation’s leadership to the credibility of the media. The former Fox News host revealed his concerns about the deepening division and paranoia among Americans, alluding to his belief that the country is on the brink of major historical changes.
“I’m just telling you, once again, what you already know, which is this is going to be the next year, is going to be, I think, I’d bet my house on it, really like nothing we’ve ever seen in the country,” he said.
Carlson went on to criticize the senile leadership at the helm of the country, explaining that our President is not in full control of his faculties or the White House. “Liars are weak. They are weak, and afraid they can’t even admit that the president’s senile,” he explained.
Delving deeper, Carlson argued that the issues plaguing America transcend politics, framing them as a cultural and moral crisis: “There is no upside to the great trends of our age. There’s no upside to pushing transgenderism on kids. Period. None. Not for the kid, not for the society at large, not for the parents who will never have grandchildren.”
“What we’re watching is not political. This is not politics. Politics is a human-conceived system whereby civilized people settle their differences without violence and by consensus. What’s happening now… can’t be explained through conventional political terms.”
He also touched on the war in Ukraine, questioning the motives and benefits of continued American involvement. However, a significant portion of his address was dedicated to the media’s role. Carlson accused them of not only spreading falsehoods but also actively suppressing the truth.
“If you feel you’re being lied to, you’re 100% right. You are being lied to. And if you feel that something very intense and history-changing is about to happen, don’t ignore it.”
“They’re not just lying, they hate the truth. They’re offended by things purely because they are true, even when they don’t possibly threaten anyone.” Carlson stated.
“The only way to stay alive and fully human in a moment like this is to resolve that you are going to tell the truth in every and all circumstances. If you can’t say it out loud, stay silent. That is the mark not of a free man or a citizen but of a slave.”
With the US disrupted by war in both Eastern Europe and the Middle East, it’s easy to have a sense of worry about the coming years. Carlson finished by urging the audience to remain strong and dignified in the face of what he sees as attempts to weaken the American spirit. Carlson advocated for personal integrity and the courage to speak the truth, even when it is unpopular or difficult.
