Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson called out the media and Democrats threatening to ‘burn the entire thing down’ as a means to stop President Trump’s Supreme Court nomination.
While most were calling to honor and revere Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the occasion of her passing, Carlson notes that the left was not.
“Prominent progressives immediately descended into hysteria and rage – unbridled rage,” he said during Monday’s monologue.
Carlson insists the commentary coming from the left shows they truly believe that RBG’s death has “imperiled this country’s freedoms.”
That she had “single-handedly kept America from descending into fascism and tyranny.”
They believe this in their hearts. And that makes them quite dangerous.
To Stop Trump, Democrats Want to ‘Burn the Whole Thing Down’
After explaining the left’s mindset, Tucker proceeded to point out their obvious demands. Demands you can see in their very own words and actions.
“Democrats have an alternative argument at the ready and it’s one they’ve been honing all year,” he explained.
“It goes like this,” revealed Carlson. “‘Do what we want or we will hurt you.'”
It didn’t start with the fight to stop President Trump’s SCOTUS pick.
In fact, for months now in Democrat-led cities, violence has been raging supposedly in the name of racial justice.
‘Defund the police or we will hurt you.’
WATCH Tucker’s monologue here:
Does anybody remember that? Does anyone remember how Democrats during that time refused to denounce the violence?
Now America is on the verge of seeing even more violence over a Supreme Court nomination. A nomination the Constitution directs President Trump to make.
But, just as Carlson said, even this message of violence involving the Court has been looming all year.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), in March, threatened Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh with violence.
“I want to tell you Gorsuch, I want to tell you Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price,” Schumer railed, pointing a stern finger.
“You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Message sent: Democrats are okay with violence if Supreme Court matters don’t go their way.
‘Give us what we want or we will hurt you.’
First Schumer tells President-elect Trump: “You take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”
Today he threatens 2 Supreme Court justices: “You will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you.”pic.twitter.com/jGQ8m5qcjB

More Signs Pointing to Democrat Violence
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Monday warned that Democrats will try “every conceivable dirty trick” to prevent Trump’s nominee from going forward.
If you don’t believe McConnell and Carlson, then you need only listen to the unhinged rhetoric coming from our friends in the media and the Democrat party.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) have indicated they would use impeachment – a tactic reserved for high crimes and misdemeanors – to stop the SCOTUS pick.

Schumer, the same guy who has threatened justices with violence, nodded along in agreement.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is open to impeaching @realDonaldTrump to stop him from filling the Supreme Court vacancy.
“We must consider, again, all of the tools available to our disposal & that all of these options should be entertained & on the table.”
Schumer nods in agreement. pic.twitter.com/cbkUqwNpUr

President Trump dared them to do it.
Trump on Pelosi’s threat to impeach him again: “Go ahead. I want them to do that … I’m the only guy in the world that could get impeached for trying to fill a seat in the Supreme Court.”

Then you have the liberal lunatics pervading the media and entertainment industries.
Reza Aslan, a former personality at CNN who is known for voicing his desire to punch a teenager, called on rioters to “burn the entire f***ing thing down.”
If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire fucking thing down.
— Reza Aslan (@rezaaslan) September 19, 2020
“That effing thing being our country,” Carlson responded. “That we built.”
Aslan also threatened civil war essentially, responding to McConnell’s announcement that Trump’s nominee will receive a vote with, “over our dead bodies.”
If you thought he was kidding, Aslan added, “literally.”
Over our dead bodies. Literally. https://t.co/rQbvuKakHU

Beau Willimon, the man behind the American version of ‘House of Cards,’ threatened to shut the country down.
We’re shutting this country down if Trump and McConnell try to ram through an appointment before the election.

Emmett MacFarlane, a professor at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, reiterated threats to burn America down.
Macfarlane is a professor at @UWaterloo, promoting violence against his political enemies. If you were a young woman in his class who was a Trump supporter, would you risk being a target of his violent rage if he found out about you? Should you transfer to a different class? pic.twitter.com/wftvjI0OKA

Don’t think words will lead to actions? Consider the fact that liberal anarchists spent the last few months setting fires to and looting businesses in several cities across America.
Now consider that they’ve already begun harassing Republican Senators in their homes.
We’re now walking to Mitch McConnell’s house to protest.

Protesters gathered at the D.C. home of Sen. Lindsey Graham to protest filling the vacancy in the Supreme Court created by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Not only have Schumer and the media authorized their followers to engage in violence, but AOC is also demanding they become ‘radicalized’ over the President’s SCOTUS pick.
#aoc: now is not the moment for cynicism and hopelessness and to give up. cynicism is unproductive and harmful to our democracy. cynicism says: it’s over, we can’t do it, don’t bother trying. let this moment radicalize you. https://t.co/jmQn76WZMu pic.twitter.com/4sbUF0ThQ0

“Let this moment radicalize you.”
Remember those words. Play them in your head while watching footage of the devastation in Democrat cities over the last few months.
And realize they are coming again.
“The Democrat party has encouraged this extremism over and over and over again,” Carlson said.
Is there any reason to think it will be different this time around?
