Tucker Carlson: Nasty Tweets About Omar, AOC, Pressley, Tlaib Tantamount To Treason For The Left

|

Tucker Carlson said by defending Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), the Democratic party now owns the position that the American people are racist and borders are immoral. Carlson said the "nasty tweets" President Trump wrote about the four is now considered "tantamount to bribery and treason."
 
"Remember collusion? Obstruction of justice? All those high crimes and misdemeanors that CNN promised us justified removing the president? It turns out that none of it was as immoral as hurting Ilhan Omar’s feelings. Doing that, they’re telling us on cable news, was the final straw. The President, though, seemed unbothered," Carlson said Tuesday.

"Whatever you think of the original tweets, that’s indisputably true: America’s lawmakers should support their country and its people. If they don’t, they shouldn’t be lawmakers," Carlson said.





"Nothing these women say can be criticized, by definition," the FNC host said. "That’s the new rule. Okay. But there’s a cost to that. The Democratic Party has decided to defend these lunatics, no matter what. Which means the party now owns their positions: the American people are racist. Borders are immoral. The United States is no different from Al Qaeda or Nazi Germany. Is that a message Democrats can win on? We’re about to find out."

TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS: The Constitution allows Congress to impeach a president for, quote, “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” Treason and bribery are fairly clear cut. But what exactly are high crimes and misdemeanors? Scholars have debated that question for centuries.

This week, a group newly-elected Democratic members of Congress finally defined it. A high crime and misdemeanor is when you insult liberals. This weekend the president wrote a series of nasty tweets about congresswomen Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib. Doing that, we soon learned, is tantamount to bribery and treason. Watch: 
 
Green: BRING ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT TO THE FLOOR!

Omar: Impeach this president.

Cicciline: Open an impeachment inquiry.

Tlaib: Impeach this lawless President today.

 
Remember collusion? Obstruction of justice? All those high crimes and misdemeanors that CNN promised us justified removing the president? It turns out that none of it was as immoral as hurting Ilhan Omar’s feelings. Doing that, they’re telling us on cable news, was the final straw. The President, though, seemed unbothered. Here’s what he said today: 
 
Trump: They can go wherever they want or they could stay, but they should love our country. They shouldn’t hate our country. We look at what they said, I have clips right here. The most vile, horrible statements about our country. About Israel. About others. It's up to them. They can do what they want. They can leave, they can stay, but they should love our country. They should work for the good of our country.

Whatever you think of the original tweets, that’s indisputably true: America’s lawmakers should support their country and its people. If they don’t, they shouldn’t be lawmakers. Lawmakers who dislike their own country are like parents who despise their own children. It doesn’t end well. 

Ilhan Omar despises the United States. She says so often. Listen to her explain that America and Al Qaeda are morally indistinguishable: 
 
OMAR: When I was in college, I took a terrorism class.

Every time the professor said ‘Al Qaeda’ his shoulders went up. He’d say "Al Qaeda" and "Hezbollah."

You don’t say ‘America’ with an intensity, you don’t say ‘England’ with the intensity. You don’t say ‘the army’ with the intensity.


Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t settle for comparing her country to Al Qaeda. Instead, she compares it to Nazi Germany:



The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are.

This isn’t harmless rhetoric. The weekend, an armed terrorist attacked an ICE facility in Tacoma, Washington. In his manifesto, he used Ocasio-Cortez’s “concentration camp” line. 
 
All four of these congresswomen have accused their countrymen of being racist. They’ve even suggested that Nancy Pelosi is a bigot. But this is projection. They’re the ones who reduce other people to their skin color. Listen to Ayanna Pressley explain that, if you’re non-white but think the wrong thoughts, you don’t deserve a voice:
 
We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice. we don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice.

What does that even mean? Who knows. Dare to ask and they’ll denounce you as racist. Nothing these women say can be criticized, by definition. That’s the new rule. Okay. But there’s a cost to that. The Democratic Party has decided to defend these lunatics, no matter what. Which means the party now owns their positions: the American people are racist. Borders are immoral. The United States is no different from Al Qaeda or Nazi Germany. Is that a message Democrats can win on? We’re about to find out.
