Tucker Carlson had this jaw-dropping response to getting suspended
Left-wing activists finally got their wish.
Someone stepped up and silenced Tucker Carlson.
And Tucker Carlson had this jaw-dropping response to getting suspended.
Twitter suspended Tucker Carlson for tweeting a screenshot of tweets from the Babylon Bee and conservative activist Charlie Kirk that correctly pointed out that transgender Biden administration official Rachel Levin was really a man since he was born Richard Levine.
Twitter locked Carlson out of his account until he deleted the offending Tweet.
Carlson refused to do so, meaning Carlson is now banned from Twitter.
On his show that night, Carlson addressed the controversy.
Carlson explained the Left is now forcing people to tell lies, citing the example of Lia Thomas, the biological male who competes in women’s swimming and just won the national championship for the 500-meter freestyle.
Carlson said social media companies forcing Americans to speak falsehoods such as men can be women is a way of exerting control over the population’s thoughts.
“‘Yes, Lia Thomas is a proud, beautiful woman who won the swim meet because she practiced harder than the other girls,’” Carlson began. “‘Lia Thomas deserved to win. Her victory wasn’t cheating and no, I don’t notice her bulging swimsuit. I have no idea what you’re talking about.’ That’s what they demand you say not because they care about Lia Thomas or any other trans person, they could care less. Making you pretend to believe something you don’t, that’s the point. Because if they can make you believe something you know is untrue, they’ve won. They control your brain.”
Carlson explained that censorship is always the first step, and that he refused to give in to the Left forcing him to speak falsehoods.
Carlson warned that when censorship failed, punishment was next.
“Their first move, always, is censorship, and their second move, inevitably, is punishment,” Carlson added. “We learned that again last night when we were suspended from Twitter … The only way out of Twitter jail was to delete our tweet, to pretend we never said it. To cleanse America’s conscience by just whitening out the past.”
In many ways, America already reached that step when Barack Obama signed Ted Kennedy’s Thought Control Act into law.
That law created federal so-called “hate crime” statutes to punish Americans more severely for crimes based on the thoughts in their heads.
The modern Left now considers speech they oppose “violence.”
And it is not too far a leap to see how the Left will try and concoct a new scheme in the coming years to criminalize speech, such as saying biological males cannot be women.
