Tucker Carlson delivers a monologue about how losing drove liberals off the "deep end" they plan to get power back no matter what it takes. On Thursday's edition of his FOX News show, Carlson said the left will tell you all about civil rights, but for them it is all about seizing power and holding it.
"They're going to tell you it's about civil rights or some other principle they pretend to care about, but they're lying," Carlson said. "It's about seizing power and holding it. That's their only aim. They're deadly serious about it. While you were grilling in the backyard last night, they were plotting in effect a coup."
"Progressives despise Donald Trump so much they've begun to dislike the country that elected him. Hate has clouded their vision and distorted their values completely," Carlson also said.
TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS HOST, TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT: Hope you had a great Fourth of July where you were celebrating the birth of our country. Some on the left were bemoaning its very existence.
Vox.com commemorated Independence Day with a piece entitled "Three Reasons the American Revolution was a Mistake."
Progressives despise Donald Trump so much they've begun to dislike the country that elected him. Hate has clouded their vision and distorted their values completely.
For generations, for example, liberals championed free speech and privacy and due process. Now, they lead the charge against civil liberties and all who dare to defend them.
Alan Dershowitz has been a liberal icon for 50 years, a stalwart defender of civil liberties. Just this morning, he was denounced by the left as an agent of Kremlin, of Vladimir Putin himself.
His crime? Suggesting that the president might also be protected by the Bill of Rights, just like everybody else. Not allowed. Professor Dershowitz joins us in just a minute to explain what happened to him.
Meanwhile, signs of growing extremism in this country on the left are everywhere. Just yesterday, a Congolese immigrant shut down the Statue of Liberty - our Statue to Liberty! - to protest the Trump administration's immigration policies. The left applauded that.
But take three steps back and think about what you are watching right here. Congo is a war-ravaged hellscape, a country noted for mass rape and cannibalism. Imagine escaping a country like that and being welcomed in our country, the United States.
You'd be grateful, wouldn't you? Many Congolese are grateful. This person is not grateful at all. She took over one of our monuments to scream about how racist we are, and progressives support her. They have gone insane.
On MSNBC, "New York Times" columnist Michelle Goldberg explained that 81-year-old Justice Anthony Kennedy somehow betrayed America by daring to retire from the Supreme Court. Watch this.

MICHELLE GOLDBERG, "THE NEW YORK TIMES" COLUMNIST: This is Kennedy betraying the country. The Democrats could have very little.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: He's 81 years old and served 30 years. He's not betraying the country. We should thank him for his service.
GOLDBERG: He has an obligation to not let Trump -
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Why do you have to demean people in making your point?
GOLDBERG: Because they are destroying this country.

CARLSON: Retiring at 81 is betrayal because it's inconvenient to their political plans.
And then, there is this. Yet more casual racism from MSNBC. Notice how it was just assumed that there's something distasteful or even immoral about hiring someone of a specific race and gender.
The left used to believe in judging people on the content of their character, not on the color of their skin. That seems like ancient history now. Watch.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: For the president, it's going to be all about the personal connection, who he feels comfortable with in the moment.
JOE SCARBOROUGH, "MORNING JOE" HOST: So, you're saying he's going to pick the man. The white man. Ninety percent of Donald Trump selections for US attorneys and federal judges were white men.

CARLSON: What happened to liberals? Well, a lot of things. One, they lost power. And that drove them off the deep end. They plan to get their power back no matter what it takes.
A new book by Professor David Faris is called "It's Time to Fight Dirty" and it explains how the left plans to do it. Here's the summary of the book from "POLITICO".
"Grant statehood to DC and Puerto Rico and break California into seven with the goal of adding 60 new Democrats to the Senate. Expand the Supreme Court and the federal courts, packing them with liberal judges. Move to multimember House districts to roll back the effects of partisan gerrymandering. Pass a new voting rights act, including nationwide automatic voter registration, felon enfranchisement and an end voter ID laws. Grant citizenship to millions of undocumented immigrants creating a
host of new Democratic leaning voters."
As Faris puts it in the book, "Republicans have always feared that immigration would change the character of American society. Democrats should reward them with their very worst nightmare."
Remember that paragraph. It is the blueprint for what we're about to see. They're going to tell you it's about civil rights or some other principle they pretend to care about, but they're lying.
It's about seizing power and holding it. That's their only aim. They're deadly serious about it. While you were grilling in the backyard last night, they were plotting in effect a coup.
