Tucker: Chicago in crisis

We ignore the real problems … which is that crime and criminals are being allowed to run amok.

Published

Over the past 12 months almost 800 Chicagoans have been murdered.

Nearly 800. In a year. In one city: Chicago.

This may be a problem.

In tonight’s episode, Tucker interviews Chicago Alderman Raymond Lopez on the murder crisis in Chicago. Highlights include:

Lori Lightfoot: “Here is where I want to be starting tomorrow. You may walk outside the immediate proximity of your house. Fresh air is important, but you may not act like the city is not in crisis.”

“According to Lori Lightfoot, the city is in crisis — a basketball crisis. Meanwhile, there’s another crisis in progress. People continue to die in huge numbers in Chicago. According to an analysis by CWB Chicago, at least 50 of these killings this year were committed by criminals who were released early on bail — they didn’t need to happen.”

“Last year in September … University of Chicago students, encouraged by faculty members, surrounded the home of the school’s provost. They occupied the street in front of her house, they shut down traffic for an entire week. They demanded disarming and disbanding the school’s police department.”

“Now, in one of those twists of irony you really have to pause to savor, those students are demanding chaperoned rides home because their classmates are getting murdered because the policies they advocated for result in death.”

“No one’s apologized, no one’s learned anything. The politicians ruining the state of Illinois and the city of Chicago demand, above all, that you worship them like gods as people die around them.”

“Under the leadership of Lori Lightfoot, the city of Chicago is flying off the rails because of the violence that is allowed to go unchecked in every community throughout the entire city.”

“When everything revolves around this spirit of ‘wokeness’ and ‘racial inequality is the root of all evil’ in everything that we do in the city of Chicago, we ignore the real problems … which is that crime and criminals are being allowed to run amok.”

“My residents deal in the real world … We’re not a bunch of eggheads trying to figure out a sociological experiment. We are blue collar people who are just trying to raise families, go to work, come home and live the American dream regardless of what color, what origin, what have you, and that’s being taken away from them daily by people who think that this is some sort of game.”

Tucker: We’re Back.

At the most basic level, the news you consume is a lie, a lie of the stealthiest and most insidious kind. Facts have been withheld on purpose, along with proportion and perspective. You are being manipulated.

Tucker again lays into the media propaganda machine as he announces he’s taking the show to Twitter. Highlights include:

“You often hear people say that news is full of lies, but most of the time, that’s not exactly right. Much of what you see on television or read in the New York Times is, in fact, true in the ‘literal’ sense, it could pass one of the media’s own ‘fact checks.’ Lawyers would be willing to sign off on it, in fact they may have. But that doesn’t make it true. It’s not true.”

“The best you can hope for in the news business at this point is the freedom to tell the fullest truth that you can, but there are always limits, and you know that if you bump up against those limits often enough, you will be fired for it. That’s not a guess, it’s guaranteed. Every person who works in the English language media understands that. The rule of what you can’t say defines everything. It’s filthy, really, and it’s utterly corrupting.”

“For the most part, the news that you see analyzed on Twitter comes from media organizations that are themselves thinly disguised propaganda outlets. You see it on cable news, you talk about it on Twitter. The result may feel like a debate, but actually the gatekeepers are still in charge. We think that’s a bad system. We know exactly how it works, and we’re sick of it.”

Tucker: See you soon

When honest people say what’s true calmly and without embarrassment, they become powerful. At the same time, the liars who’ve been trying to silence them shrink.

Oh gosh, I’m using Twitter. Tucker dropped a video today on his Twitter account, again commenting on the current state of US media and finishing with a hopeful “See you soon.” Highlights include:

“One of the first things you realize when you step outside the noise for a few days is how many genuinely nice people there are in this country, kind and decent people, people who really care about what’s true, and a bunch of hilarious people also, a lot of those, it’s gotta be the majority of the population, even now, so that’s heartening. The other thing you notice when you take a little time off is how unbelievably stupid most of the debates you see on television are…”

“Both political parties and their donors have reached consensus on what benefits them and they actively collude to shut down any conversation about it. Suddenly, the United States looks very much like a one party state. That’s a depressing realization, but it’s not permanent. Our current orthodoxies won’t last. They’re brain dead.”

“This moment is too inherently ridiculous to continue, and so it won’t. The people in charge know this, that’s why they’re hysterical and aggressive. They’re afraid. They’ve given up persuasion, they’re resorting to force. But it won’t work. When honest people say what’s true calmly and without embarrassment, they become powerful. At the same time, the liars who’ve been trying to silence them shrink, and they become weaker. That’s the iron law of the universe, true things prevail.”
