Tucker Carlson, in a video statement released two days after severing ties with Fox News, urged Americans to effectively abandon the uniparty complex and be receptive to diverse viewpoints.
Tucker Carlson’s first tweet after being published was a reflection on the decency of Americans, a topic that is often obscured in the establishment media cocoon, where shouting matches are frequently mistaken for meaningful debate.
“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,” Tucker began. “Kind and decent people. People who really care about what’s true, and I know a bunch of hilarious people also. A lot of those. It’s got to be the majority of the population. Even now. So that’s heartening.”
This, according to Tucker, helped him realize the level of extreme idiocy demonstrated during “most of the debates you see on television.”
“They are completely irrelevant. They mean nothing,” he said. “In five years, we won’t even remember that we had them. Trust me as someone who’s participated. And yes, at the same time, and this is the amazing thing, the undeniably big topics, the ones that will define our future, get virtually no discussion at all: War, civil liberties, emerging science, demographic change, corporate power, natural resources.”
“When was the last time you heard a legitimate debate about any of those issues,” he continued. “It has been a long time. Debates like that are not permitted in American media.”
Both political parties and their donor classes, according to Carlson, have decided what Americans will discuss based on what benefits them. He compared this “consensus” to a one-party state, a term frequently used by reactionary activists to describe the “uniparty.”
“Our current orthodoxies won’t last. They’re brain-dead. Nobody actually believes them,” he said. “Hardly anyone’s life is improved by them. This moment is too inherently ridiculous to continue, and so it won’t. The people in charge notice, 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.”
Carlson ended his speech with an appeal for optimism:
At the same time, the liars who have been trying to silence them shrink. And they become weaker. That’s the iron law of the universe. True things prevail. Where can you still find American saying true things. There aren’t many places left, but there are some, and that’s enough. As long as you can hear the words there is hope. See you soon.

The internet went utterly bonkers after the video was posted.
As of this writing, more than 12,6 million people have viewed the video on Twitter. The message has also received over 70,000 retweets, 9,800 quote tweets, and over 285,000 likes.
Carlson’s success is astounding, and the number of viewers who viewed his video on Twitter has quadrupled in comparison to the three million viewers he typically attracts each night on Fox News.
Tucker is obviously in high demand, and he has one of the largest audiences in the nation. The American public is eagerly anticipating his return and is anxious to hear what he has to say. The response to the video is conclusive evidence of this.
