Carlson continues to deliver racially-motivated hate messages on his Fox non-news show, and most non-MAGA extremists are considered major media contributors to the rise of hate crime in America. He reiterated the myth of the “white replacement theory that imagines immigrants and that all minority nations are deliberately replacing whites.” Money is the leading gas lighter in the politics of white fear as a tactic to mobilize white-Christian Republican bases in America that are becoming more diverse. The difference between the increasingly diverse American population and the MAGA white Americans is that one has an agenda of hatred, genocide and cruelty (MAGA) and the other seeks equality, unity and justice. The religion of the MAGA movement is a perversion of Christianity that consists of racism, irrational fear, hypocrisy and ultimately self-destruction.
Additionally, Takar Carlson is a fan and follower of Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Urban, whose ideology undermines democracy. Urban has reduced the effectiveness of free newspapers, reduced judicial independence, and opposed the multi-party system of government. Carlson, Trump and MAGA politicians are trying to do the same in America. Carlson has millions of white followers who are brainwashed to intimidate and negatively judge minorities. Equality between all races and religions is not something that Tucker Carlson has shown in support of the Voter Suppression Act which weakens the voting of minority voters.
In 2015, Rep. Matt Gates chose to ridicule the language and logic of the legal challenge that two black members of Congress presented in defense of Obamacare. Marjorie Taylor Green spoke at the America First Political Action Conference, the dominant party in February 2022. “Putin! Putin! Putin!” (United States, Rex Hoopke, February 2022). Rep. Lauren Boebert calls Republican Ilhan Omar a “terrorist.”
In March 2022, CNN contributors Andrew Kakjinski and M. Steak reported that the rep. Paul Gosser, “the far-right Arizona lawmaker, has raised the profile of local antisemites, attended a conference hosted by a prominent white nationalist, and repeatedly shared content on a Holocaust denial website.”
Democrats need to be more aggressive in their public resistance against the MAGA / Trumpism movement. They are constantly referring to members of Congress who make racist remarks, lie about stolen elections without evidence, believe in mentally ill conspiracy theories, break laws, rules and regulations, and offer no substantive policy to the average American. Republicans want more power than democracy. Their public dialogue cannot be trusted. They criticize President Biden and the Democrats, and the media let them go without a solution. This lack of expectation to govern these officials has become normal and is tearing our country apart. Republican voters need to find other candidates in their party to support them, otherwise our democracy will reflect the dictatorships of Hungary and Russia.
