TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Encouraging hope in your country is now "heartless." Staying cheerful is an insult to the rest of us. Our leaders have an obligation to confirm our most irrational fears, that's what compassion looks like. That's what they're telling us. It's deranged. But it's also recognizable. It reminds you of the many ghouls in Washington who forced our military to wage pointless wars around the Middle East but when you point out how destructive all of that has been, they whip around and accuse you of insulting the memory of our soldiers, that is the thousands of unfortunate young Americans who have died in their pointless wars. How do you respond to an attack like that? It's almost too irrational to rebut. That's why they use it. And that's why they're using the same strategy here.
They wreck our economy with lockdowns. They keep our children stunted and ignorant by shutting down their schools. They drive our entire country to the brink of madness with politically motivated hysteria, but if you dare to say a word about it, if you dare to complain in any way, you are the monster. In fact, you're a killer.
