Tucker Carlson stopped by Fox News’ The Daily Briefing with host Dana Perino to discuss his new book, but he also took time to explain why certain Americans are concerned with punishing Brett Kavanaugh for an alleged high school sexual assault: it’s all about the “theocracy run by atheists.”
His argument goes like this: A Christian theocracy would probably involve conservatives punishing people for acts they deem immoral… therefore liberals going after the conservative Kavanaugh for anything he did in high school amounts to a “theocracy run by atheists.”
If that makes no sense to you… well, now you know what it’s like to watch FOX News.
Carlson said he remembers back in the day when liberals were concerned that the right would force an actual theocracy upon the entire nation:
“I’m old enough … to remember when the left sincerely worried, or said they did, about the right turning this into some kind of theocracy and imposing its puritanical values on the rest of the country,” Carlson said…
“The irony, of course, is that they’re doing it right now. It’s a kind of theocracy run by atheists, where the minor, smallest peccadillos from your teen years are now disqualifying. Is this really the standard we want?”
A better question: Does Carlson understand what the left is saying?
Why are many Americans concerned with confirming Kavanaugh to the highest court in the land?
Of course, Carlson misstates the reason liberals don’t want Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court beyond his conservative views. It’s not just the alleged assault. It’s the lack of a true investigation into the matter, a lack of transparency with all the paperwork he produced while working for George W. Bush and Ken Starr, his blatant partisanship which was on display last week, his disrespect toward senators, his constant stream of lies about what he did in high school, and his belief that a sitting president can’t be indicted.
