Tucker: Republicans Declare War on the 2nd Amendment

John Cornyn and Mitch McConnell’s gun confiscation isn’t just a betrayal of Republican voters. It’s a declaration of war against them.

Tucker looks at the latest gun control bill the Senate Republicans are supporting without reading. Highlights include:

“Yesterday, just a few hours after the text of this gun confiscation bill was released, the Senate voted on it, just a few hours. Why? Well, John Cornyn said there was simply no time to allow anyone to read the bill, even people voting on it, or to try to understand what was in it.”

“A reporter last night overheard John Cornyn, again a senator from Texas, a Republican, say this, and we’re quoting, ‘It’s only 80 pages long, how long do you need to read it?’”

“This is grotesque. Under ordinary circumstances you would just assume, as always, these people live in their own hermetically sealed world. They have no contact with reality, they have no idea how out of step they are. But given the context of this moment, you have to interpret it differently.”

“What you just saw was effectively a speech in support of Joe Biden by a leader in a party whose job it is to offer an alternative to Joe Biden.”

“We’re shoveling another $100 million to the FBI, the personal police department of Joe Biden, the people who saved his son from a drug charge. Then there’s nearly $1 billion in order to bribe the states to ‘implement and manage’ these so-called ‘red flag laws.’ Now, these laws allow authorities to seize firearms from people who have committed no crimes. That’s a violation of due process, it’s unconstitutional, but the Republican party is all for it.”

“Would any of these measures have stopped the mass shootings in Buffalo or Uvalde? No.”

“This bill is completely unconnected from what happened in Buffalo or Uvalde. This is merely Joe Biden’s agenda. Even Keven McCarthy of California has refused to support it. So here you have Mitch McConnell, the lead Republican in the Senate, partnering with Chuck Schumer, the lead Democrat in the Senate, picking John Cornyn to carry the message, and getting it done before anyone can even read the bill.”

“It’s not simply a betrayal of Republican voters. It’s much more. It’s a declaration of war against Republican voters, in fact against voters.”

Tucker: Missouri becomes the first state to ban abortion

It’s a big day for democracy, for the voters now to have a say, as opposed to 9 unelected justices back 49 years ago that decided this for everybody in the country.

Published

on

Tucker interviews Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt about the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade, why it shouldn’t have existed in the first place and what happens next. Highlights include:

“The law behind the Roe v Wade decision of 1973 was so shoddy and ridiculous, because of course abortion’s not mentioned in the Constitution, not even alluded to, that a lot of people figured out a long time ago that it would at some point be overturned because it was too absurd to continue. And so, a lot of states have been preparing for it.”

“Eventually, roughly half the country is expected to implement significant new restrictions on abortion, and that matches public opinion polling on abortion, which is to say a lot of people don’t like abortion. If you live in New York City you might not know any of them, but if you live in Mississippi you know quite a few.”

“The point is, people will get to live with the laws that they want. How’s that bad?”

“The Roe decision, as Justice Alito said, the day it was issued was on a collision course with the Constitution. And so this issue will be decided, as it should’ve been 49 years ago, to the states.”

“It’s a big day for democracy, for the voters now to have a say, as opposed to 9 unelected justices back 49 years ago that decided this for everybody in the country. And I think what you’re seeing now with this ‘night of rage’ that’s been talked about, the justice department has no interest in condemning it, they haven’t done anything to stop it. You’ve seen an assassination attempt of a Supreme Court Justice. You see this intimidation that’s gonna’ continue.”

“The justice department’s way more interested, evidently, in sic’ing the FBI in going after parents who show up to school board meetings under the ‘Patriot Act’ than in arresting folks who are intimidating Supreme Court justices.”

Tucker: It’s time to reassess our view of Kamala Harris

Deconstruct your unconscious bias and ask yourself, would a moron be capable of repeating the same canned phrase dozens of times with this kind of precision, without changing a single facial expression?

Published

Tucker extols the under-appreciated genius of Kamala Harris that he’s been missing for so long in his blind racism. Highlights include:

“You following this? So, Kamala Harris is like your sister in the same way that Michelle Obama would be like your sister if your sister was your cousin and also married to the president. Why hadn’t we realized it before?”

“Well, as Joy Reid pointed out, ‘most of the media is still white and male’, of course. Those damned white males, always hiding the sister/cousin connection, it’s what they do. But for us, the veil had been lifted. We could see for the first time what our racism had blinded us to for so long and the truth hurt. It was so painful that for days we had to wear sunglasses, even indoors. But it was worth it because at that point began a journey of contrition and self-discovery that honestly was long overdue.”

“Our assumption, really for decades, was that politicians who make a habit of using the word ‘truth’ are probably, really by definition, lying. That’s why they say ‘truth’ so often… What struck us was that she repeats the same line again and again and again, and our old reaction was derision… Not exactly Socrates, that was the phrase we used.”

“But that reaction, we now see, comes from a place of privilege.”

“Evaluate your priors! Deconstruct your unconscious bias and ask yourself, would a moron be capable of repeating the same canned phrase dozens of times with this kind of precision, without changing a single facial expression? Oh, no, try that at home. You can’t do it, you’re too self-aware. It’s impossible to you, but not to Kamala Harris.”

“When Kamala Harris tells us again and again and again that we need to work together, she’s not simply repeating some vapid canned soundbyte she’s been handed by her handlers.. No, she’s literally, literally, moving human evolution forward. She’s making the species better on a cellular level. How long ’til we can fly? If Kamala Harris keeps it up, not long. She does this all the time.”

“Okay, so, again, there are a couple of ways to assess that claim.. The old us, before we were reborn…The old us would’ve said ‘Wait a second, Kamala Harris! African Americans weren’t actually enslaved for 400 years in this country, that’s not true.’, but we would’ve missed the point. So, what happened here is Kamala Harris before her talk googled ‘how long was there slavery in America?’ and she saw that it’d been 400 years since slavery began in America, which is true.”

“But, she forgot to subtract the years since the Emancipation Proclamation. It’s actually fewer than 400, about 150 years fewer than 400, which would put us around 250, but whatever. The point is, that’s not her fault. It’s Google’s fault for not doing the subtraction for her.”

“And who runs Google? White men.”
