Tucker Carlson dropped his second episode of ‘Tucker on Twitter’. The episode is titled ‘Cling to your taboos!”
Carlson started, “Hey it’s Tucker Carlson. Let’s say you wanted to control a country. How would you start? You would want to make sure you had the complete obedience of everybody inside your borders who was authorized to use deadly force. You would start with the military and then federal law enforcement and move your way down ultimately to agencies like the IRS. Controlling the guns would be a top priority for you if you ever wanted to go dictatorial if you wanted to be Baby Doc.”
“But let’s say you had deeper ambitions, let’s say you wanted the power not to simply control people’s behavior but to control how they think. Not just their bodies but their minds, as a god would. In that case, you’d need to take charge of the society’s taboos. A taboo is something that by popular consensus is not allowed. A taboo may not be illegal but it doesn’t need to be. Over time social prohibitions are more powerful and more enduring than laws. Societies are defined by what they will not permit as are famously religions. Muslims don’t eat pork, neither do orthodox Jews, traditional Christians oppose extramarital sex, the Amish avoid electricity, and so on.”
Carlson started to make his point, “American society isn’t overtly religious but it’s governed by taboos and it always has been. What’s interesting is how fast our taboos are changing. This is not happening organically. What we’re allowed to dislike is being dictated to us from above, sometimes by force. Until fairly recently for example it was taboo in this country to attack people on the basis of their race.”
“That was the main lesson of the second world war we were told again and again. The one thing we learned from the Nazis is that it is dangerous to reduce human beings to their genetic code. There is no master race. That made sense but apparently, we no longer believe it.”
“Punishing people based on their skin color is not only permitted in modern America it is mandatory throughout business, government, and higher education, as long as the victims are White. At one time that would have been unimaginable.”
“So with the current behavior of our politicians,” Carlson stated. He then went into Bill Clinton and his maneuvering to cover up his affair with Gennifer Flowers during his first presidential campaign, as it was taboo at the time for politicians to have extramarital affairs. “He was the last presidential candidate that had to meet this standard,” Carlson revealed. He then addressed Barack Obama’s “highly creepy personal life” because by 2008 no one asked about his marital life as the marital relationship was no longer relevant to political life.
“One by one with increasing speed our old taboos have been struck down, those that remain have lost their moral force,” Carlson added. He then went down a list of taboos that no longer seem to have an effect on society.
“So it probably shouldn’t surprise us that the greatest taboo of all is teetering on the edge of acceptability, child molestation. A generation ago talking to someone else’s children about sex was widely considered grounds for a thrashing. Touching them sexually was effectively a death penalty offense…”
Carlson went on to highlight that Kyle Rittenhouse had defended his life from a convicted child molester on the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin. Rittenhouse shot and killed the child molester in self-defense, and Rittenhouse was later indicted and made to stand trial while the media portrayed the child molester as the victim.
Carlson talked about a piece The Wall Street Journal put out Wednesday, about Instagram, the article claimed the social media platform helps connect those who want to purchase underage sex content. Carlson pointed out that neither Instagram nor Mark Zuckerberg has denied any portion of the article.
“White supremacists are America’s new child molesters,” Carlson boldly proclaimed. He continued on to play a clip of President Joe Biden proclaiming that white supremacy is the biggest threat to the American homeland.
He also shared about a man who was fired from his job after he was photographed cracking his knuckles on the side of a work truck. Someone took a picture of him and shared it online claiming he was making a white supremacy symbol.
“It’s hard to relax in a country like that. The old system was better,” Carlson proclaimed. “Government operated on the basis of laws, not amorphous moral terror. Politicians couldn’t accuse you of something they couldn’t define. The legal code was straightforward. Child molestation was a crime…”
“You knew what was allowed and what wasn’t because the rules didn’t change very often. The taboos were organic. They derived from collective experience and instinct the two most reliable guides to life. They evolved for a reason…”
“You know the outlines of right and wrong, you’re born knowing them. So don’t let them talk you out of what you can smell. Don’t let them rationalize away your intuitive moral sense. Cling to your taboos like your life depends on them because it does. Cherish and protect them like family heirlooms because that’s exactly what they are,” Carlson concluded.
