Tucker: you can no longer fight back

If the criminal who assaults you is a member of a favored group, you don’t have the right to fight back, you may not defend yourself. You must take whatever he gives you, because thugs have more rights than you do

Tucker looks at several incidents of people who were punished for defending themselves. Highlights include:

“Jose Alba came to the United States 30 years ago to work, and working is exactly what he was doing at the bodega in Harlem at almost midnight on Friday, selling chips to people who don’t bother to work, holding up the retail economy for minimum wage.”

“A healthy society celebrates, venerates men like Jose Alba, men with jobs and families, men with independence and dignity. And above all a healthy society affirms the right of men like this to self defense. Self defense is the cornerstone of all liberty; if you can’t defend your own life and property, you have no rights at all.”

“That was obvious in America, for centuries this was a country whose leaders encouraged decent behavior, who held up the common man as a hero. But that has changed. Jose Alba wasn’t lauded for his bravery or his resourcefulness, he wasn’t congratulated for defending himself in the face of a violent felon much younger than him.”

“Alba was arrested at the scene, and he was sent to jail.”

“If the criminal who assaults you is a member of a favored group, you don’t have the right to fight back. You may not defend yourself. You must take whatever he gives you, because thugs have more rights than you do, you being the person dumb enough to be working at almost midnight in a bodega in Harlem on a Friday.”

“That’s the message. The tech companies, as always, joined with government as a unified force to send this message.”

“GoFundMe deleted Jose Alba’s fundraising page from the internet. Contrast this with how the left’s militia are treated. Now, GoFundMe explained, ‘we don’t allow fundraising for anyone who’s been charged with a violent crime,’ really? Well, that’s just a lie, and provably so. BLM rioters were encouraged to raise money or bail and their legal defense. They can have lawyers, but not bodega clerks. They are powerless, and they must remain so.”

“Virtually every power center in the United States agrees that self defense is no longer allowed. You can no longer fight back. And if you don’t believe it, remember how the media covered the Rittenhouse trial. Here was a man exercising his lawful, his fundamental right of self defense, but he was charged with murder, and corporate media backed the prosecutors.”

“’You lose the right to self defense when you’re the one who brought the gun.’ Now, legally, that is nonsense, that’s insane. There’s no reference whatsoever in American law for that statement, but the law is not the point. They don’t need the law. They now have the unilateral authority to destroy your business, ruin your reputation, throw you in prison, prevent your family from hiring a lawyer to defend you or get you out of jail.”

“The people who are favored by the regime can do whatever they want, you can do nothing to protect your life, your family, your property. Burglars broke into the Arlington Smoke Shop in March of 2020, middle of the night. A store employee who was sleeping in the store because there were so many break-ins, shot at the robbers, as is his right, in fact his duty, and he should be applauded for that. But no, he was prosecuted.”

“At this very moment, the Biden administration is letting in millions, literally millions of illegal aliens, foreign nationals whose identities we can’t actually know because, ‘they work hard, the American dream, the statue of liberty, give us your tired huddled masses, etc etc, okay.'”

“But then when those immigrants come here and work in a bodega in Harlem or a smoke shop in Arlington and they’re faced with violent crime, this same party, the democratic party, punishes them for defending themselves. Whose side are they on exactly?”

What the Trump raid was really about

Indicting Donald Trump is a very big step, not simply because a lot of people like him and he’s the former President, but because indicting him at this point would be to reveal that this entire thing, and by ‘thing’ we mean our justice system, is just transparently political.

Tucker looks at what didn’t make sense about the recent FBI raid on Donald Trump’s home in Florida.

Highlights include:

“No honest person could believe that the raid on Donald Trump’s home last week was a legitimate act of law enforcement — it was not. Even the Biden administration didn’t really bother to pretend otherwise. The official explanations that we have heard for the raid make no sense at all. It doesn’t matter how forcefully they are repeated by the media, they’re nonsensical.”

“For the sake of argument on our show, we’re gonna say that it is, in fact, true, and that Donald Trump did, in fact, have boxes of classified documents sitting in his cellar. Let’s say that’s true. What would it mean? Well, what it means depends in part on what the documents were. Did those documents contain meaningful information? Should they have been classified in the first place? Is there a good reason the rest of us should not have been allowed to see those documents? Now, you never hear those questions asked in public, but anyone who lives in Washington knows perfectly well they should be asked in public, a lot, because in Washington virtually anything can qualify as an official state secret, and often does.”

“If that is true, would it justify what happened? Would it justify sending a large team of federal agents to shut down the entire southern tip of Palm Beach to raid Mar-A-Lago on a weekday? No, it wouldn’t. So, one of the laws they’re telling you that Trump broke doesn’t even have criminal penalties attached to it because it’s not serious enough. Federal paramilitaries don’t show up at your house when you violate the Presidential Records Act.”

“There was endless huffing on television about something called the ‘rule of law’ and how absolutely no one is above that, no one, not even a former President. We’re informed of this by the same people who paid rioters to burn down our cities, the ones who eliminated bail, the ones who encouraged tens of millions of foreign nationals to ignore our federal immigration statutes and move to our country permanently at public expense as a reward for breaking our laws. But, keep in mind, no one is above the law.”

“It’s exactly what it looks like: a show of force against the opposition leader by the head of state and his personal bodyguards. If this happened in any other country, it immediately would be denounced as the act of a dictator.”

“Now, superficially all of this is about Donald Trump, and on some level it is. Permanent Washington does not want Trump to run again. Of course, it’s their greatest fear, and they’re doing all he [sic] can to prevent it. It turns out democracy was too important to let voters choose their own president. But if you take three steps back and consider what’s actually going on, you’ll see that none of this is really about Donald Trump the man. It’s about power, and that means it’s about crushing and humiliating anyone who gets in the way of people who want to retain power.”

“Indicting Donald Trump is a very big step, not simply because a lot of people like him and he’s the former President, but because indicting him at this point would be to reveal that this entire thing, and by ‘thing’ we mean our justice system, is just transparently political. It’s just a means to an end, a means to power, and people know that at this point. They’ve watched it. They understand what’s happening, even people who don’t like Donald Trump, even people who didn’t vote for Donald Trump and don’t want to vote for him in 2024. They know, and they can’t un-know, and that means that we are at this point on the edge of something unprecedented, and something awful.”

Tucker: They don’t care about you at all

Democrats don’t care about inflation because they’re rich and it doesn’t affect them.

Published

Tucker gives his analysis of the Democratic primary in New York City, where it’s incumbent vs incumbent because of a new redistricting. Remember that Futurama episode in which two identical politicians were running against each other? It’s kinda’ like that, except not funny.
“Highlights” include:

“If you’re an incumbent member of Congress, pretty much the last thing you ever want to do is to debate a primary opponent in public. As a sitting member, you already have every possible advantage, unless you drop dead during a speech or get drunk and take your clothes off on a commercial airplane, you are very likely to be reelected to Congress.”

“So, a televised debate cannot help you. It is all risk and no upside.”

“But occasionally there is no avoiding it. Democrats held a primary debate in New York City last night, they had no choice. Both the candidates in this race are incumbent. Thanks to a court decision that redrew congressional boundaries, the two most powerful members of the New York delegation are now running against each other for the same seat.”

“What was very interesting and what tells you a lot about the Democratic party is how these two candidates talked about their personal accomplishments and their goals for the country.”

“Now, we should tell you, having watched it, that figuring out exactly what Maloney and Nadler were trying to say was not easy. These are not spry, articulate people. They’re not magicians with the English language.”

“But at one point, Nadler gathered the strength to boast about his greatest accomplishment in the Congress: That would be impeaching George W. Bush, twice. Obviously, Nadler meant to say Donald Trump, not that he can remember what decade it is. But what he meant to say is not really a consolation for Democrats watching at home. The problem here is that Jerry Nadler and Carolyn Maloney … neither of these candidates have anything to say.”

“What’s interesting is what Carolyn Maloney didn’t mention as a top priority, and that would be the economy, inflation. And it’s interesting because every poll taken shows that inflation is the number one issue that actual Americans care about. So, why wouldn’t Carolyn Maloney, who is a politician after all, can probably read a poll, why would she not include inflation? Well, it’s possible she’s not aware it’s happening.”

“So, these are the issues that the leaders of the Democratic party and the party’s donors, many of them in San Francisco and New York, care about. They don’t care about inflation because they’re rich and it doesn’t affect them. In other words, they don’t care about you at all. And by the way, this isn’t just true of longstanding establishment figures in the Democratic party like Jerry Nadler and Carolyn Maloney, it’s everywhere. It’s endemic, it’s in the fabric of the party itself. Even people who want to join the club repeat the same lines.”

“So, no wonder Democrats are unpopular. They have nothing to offer. They haven’t updated their files. They believe it’s 2005. You see this in foreign policy particularly. They are living in their heads in a world in which the US wields the world’s most powerful military backed by the world’s strongest economy and can do whatever it wants just by telling other people to obey. So, like Joe Biden, you just tell Russia ‘don’t invade Ukraine!’, and of course it won’t, we’re America. You just let China know that we back Taiwan and the entire 75-year-old dispute over that island will be settles forever. They really believe that. They have no idea of this country’s relative place in the world order because they don’t know anything about reality as it stands right now.”

“How out of touch are they? Well, the Democratic party’s main ‘radical’ right now is Sandy Cortez of Westchester. How radical is Sandy Cortez? Well, she spends her days defending the ‘intel’ agencies and neocon foreign policy, and the big banks. So, if you’re ‘revolutionaries’ are reading scripts written by the World Economic Forum, maybe they’re not actually very revolutionary. Maybe they’re defending the status quo, and that’s exactly what they’re doing, and they’re doing it because they have no other plan. The sad truth is the people who run the Democratic party have just given up. They’ve given up on the country and given up on the people who live here.”
