TUCKER CALRSON (HOST): Soros prosecutors refuse to enforce the law against protected groups. That is their signature quality, that's the heart of their ideology. The result of this has been a lot of posturing, but even more murder victims. A lot of people have died.


Does that sound like democracy to you? Of course it's not democracy. Democracy is a system in which the will of the majority is recognized and often acted upon. The people rule. What we just described is oligarchy. At best, it's grotesque, and has killed a lot of people. 

You're probably aware of this, on some level. And it's frustrating to hear. But until a few hours ago, no one had really done anything about it. But then today, Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida, a man who unlike George Soros has actually been elected by American voters, decided to sack a Soros-backed prosecutor in his state, who's been relentlessly politicizing the justice system in Tampa. That man's name is Andrew Warren. For six years, Warren has refused to enforce laws that George Soros doesn't like. Today, that ended.


So, to be clear in case you missed civics class, prosecutors don't get to make the laws. Prosecutors enforce the laws. They prosecute people for violating the laws. Legislatures make laws. Your representatives are elected by you to write into law the rules that you support. You get to create the parameters of your own society. That's called democracy. But when a prosecutor decides which laws are valid and which laws are not, that is the most basic subversion of democracy and Andrew Warren has done that for six years.
