Glenn Greenwald sounds the alarm on a ‘very real threat’ of a nuclear exchange

it’s time to update your assumptions about the technology here. These are not the bombs that flattened Nagasaki. They are incalculably more powerful.

Tucker interviews Glenn Greenwald about the possibility of nuclear war, the current political situation in Brazil, and recent air raid sirens in Tokyo. Highlights include:

“Buses in New Jersey now have signs warning about radiation poisoning.”

“‘September is National Preparedness Month. Do you know what to do in a radiation emergency?'”

“No, you don’t. Doesn’t matter. This is all make believe, it’s all play acting. If you live in a big metro area, there’s not anything you’re going to ‘do’ in a nuclear exchange, ‘cuz you’re going to be dead, along with most other Americans. The overwhelming majority of Americans will be dead and those who survive will starve to death because all agriculture will be destroyed, along with billions of people around the planet. So it’s time to update your assumptions about the technology here. These are not the bombs that flattened Nagasaki. They are incalculably more powerful.”

“The way they convince Americans to support US involvement in a war is they personalize a particular leader, get us to hate that leader.”

“Hundreds of billions of dollars later and lives lost, polls always show that Americans come to realize that they regard those wars as a mistake, and the reason is they realize that no benefits came to the United States and American citizens by virtue of US involvement in those wars. So, let’s apply that framework here.”

“If a nation has nuclear weapons and you believe, even theoretically, they might use them, you have to treat that nation differently. You may not want to, it may be unfair, but that’s why nations seek nuclear weapons, because you can’t boss them around. If you ignore the possibility that your entire population could be killed, you are not fit for leadership because you’re insane. And if feels like our leaders are right there, they’re insane.”

“A lot of times the reason escalation happens isn’t even because the countries wanted to, but because when hostilities are intensified enough, miscommunication and misperception happen. That’s why when you get involved in a war like the one in Ukraine, things are incredibly dangerous.”

“The world is a dangerous place. These weapons can kill hundreds of millions of people at once and we are playing with fire by not even being willing to debate this out of fear that we’re gonna’ be called names.”

How could any decent person possibly be on the side of the Chinese government?

How could any decent person possibly be on the side of the Chinese government, against the population of the country, the people, against human rights, against human decency?

Tucker looks at China’s shining model of how to deal with covid and why entire cities are still under lockdown and people still in quarantine when that’s no longer a threat. Highlights include:

“Here’s something that we didn’t know but now do. In the winter of 2020, Tony Fauci wanted to know how the Chinese communist party was responding to covid. They had covid, we had covid, he wanted to see what they were doing.”

“So, he sent one of his deputies, a man called Clifford Lane, to China to find out, and Lane seemed stunned by what he saw there – entire Chinese cities had been quarantined, the whole city. Huge numbers of people were forcibly locked inside their own homes, in some cases to starve to death. Secret police cruised the streets forcing pedestrians into windowless vans for the crime of being outside. Household pets, dogs and cats, were declared unclean and beaten to death on the sidewalk. It was a hellish dystopian scene.”

“But Tony Fauci was not disgusted, he was not appalled by the human rights abuses that Clifford Lane had seen in China. According to a new report in The Epoch Times, based on depositions that emerged this month, Tony Fauci was envious.”

“Who could be rooting for the secret police?”

“How could any decent person possibly be on the side of the Chinese government, against the population of the country, the people, against human rights, against human decency?”

“Who could root for the tank against the lone brave man standing in front of it? And the answer is, unfortunately, some people could be on the side of the tank. Some people could be on the side of the tank. Some people could support the oppressors against the oppressed, and in this country, many people do.”

“One of them is Tony Fauci.”

“The protesters are speaking for themselves — Haven’t we spent $60 billion to prop up the corrupt government of Ukraine ‘cuz they’re on the side of ‘freedom and democracy’ even though it’s not a free or democratic country? But that’s the pretext, we’re for freedom?”

“But here you have people saying, hey, I don’t want to be thrown in a concentration camp or starve to death in my own apartment and the Biden administration can’t even take their side?”

“Oh, the right to choose … right to choose abortion … what about the right to go outside or the right to choose whether to send your children to school or the right to choose what drugs go into your body, or the right to choose not to be thrown into a concentration camp? Are those viable rights, too? Are those also examples of bodily autonomy? Do the 1.5 billion people who live in China or the 340 million who live here, do they have bodily autonomy? No, they don’t.”

Tucker: This is a grotesque and filthy lie

Virtually everything NBC ‘news’ has told you about this shooting in Colorado is not only wrong, it is the opposite of the truth.

Published

on

Tucker looks at NBC’s and CNN’s continued coverage of the recent shooting in Colorado now that the shooter has claimed to be non-binary.

As you probably already expect, they’re still denying it and blaming people who oppose mutilating children, as if that had anything to do with it.

Highlights include:

“If you’ve been watching the ‘news’ recently, the one thing you know for certain about the accused gunman in the massacre in Colorado over the weekend is that he was a ‘crazed, right-wing, anti-trans extremist.”

“He did that because he was taught by right-wing media outlets to despise and fear the non-binary community.”

“Was her reporting right? Well, not entirely. Do you remember when Brandy Zadrozny told you several hundred times that the accused shooter, Anderson Lee Aldrich, was inspired by hatred for the non-binary community that he learned on this show, do you remember that? Well, actually, it turns out, we discovered last night, that Anderson Lee Aldrich is … drumroll, please … part of the non-binary community. He doesn’t hate them, he is one.”

“What it means is that virtually everything NBC ‘news’ has told you about this shooting in Colorado is not only wrong, it is the opposite of the truth. It is all a grotesque and filthy lie. It wasn’t ‘news reporting,’ it turns out to be the most transparent sort of political propaganda, and for once they have been busted flat out, in public, trying to sell political propaganda to an unsuspecting public under the guise of ‘news.’”

“It turns out it’s the town’s fault, too, because there are a lot of Christians, everybody knows, in Colorado Springs, so, gay people feel terrified there because Christians are dangerous. And all these terrified gay people were huddled together for safety when this Fox News-addled anti-trans bigot walked in and started shooting them for being transfolk.”

“Well, the only problem is, not all of the victims were gay. One of them, at least one of them, was at the club with his girlfriend. Details, details.”

“So, if you’re against genital mutilation of children or bringing toddlers to drag shows, you’re against the lgbtq community. Well, of course, that’s insane. There’s nothing anti-gay about that. Most gay people aren’t in favor of genital mutilation or bringing toddlers to drag shows. There’s nothing wrong with those opinions. They’re the right opinions, and all decent people understand that. What’s indecent, what is wrong, is lying about a mass shooting, which NBC did.”-
