Tucker Carlson is getting a whole lot of noise.

    After reading this article I have some thoughts I'd like to share.

    https://www.vox.com/2019/1/10/18171912/tucker-carlson-fox-news-populism-conservatism-trump-gop



    I'm not a Fox News fanboy in any way, but what he's saying here needs to be said a whole lot more. He comes right out with what the issues really are. We are being used by huge corporations and politicians and not one of them cares about any of "us". Why is it that most people don't understand this, and even more importantly, why is it that we allow this to happen?

    He talks briefly about what is going on in Europe. I believe that the Yellow Vests are what started him down the path to this monologue. They have been making quite a stir, and even though the media is trying to hide it word is getting out. Are "they" concerned yet? I doubt it. What is surprising to me is that "they" would allow Carlson to speak like this. He is essentially saying that the Yellow Vests are coming to America, but is this a warning for "them" to prepare or for "us"?

    I notice that Carlson is taking some heat from big corporations who disagree with his reporting and punditry. I think he rattled their cages. More power to him. I hope he survives and is not "clintonized".

    RE the yellow vests, I have some concern about exactly who might decide to "be a yellow vest protestor" here in America. I can see how some Antifa types might see it as an opportunity to avoid the bad press they created for themselves and come out as yellow vests instead. No change in philosophy, just new window dressing. Add to that the younger generations, particularly those still in college, who may jump on a bandwagon just to be part of the parade... Look at David Hogg after the shootings in Parkland, FL...

    My concern with any "revolution" is always going to be where the funding for it is coming from. Soros et all have been way to involves in most of these types of things recently, some unbeknownst to those protesting. As you say @twp follow the money.

    So, the socialists are revolting over gas taxes? You can't make this stuff up.

    I'm not sure I trust the statistics about Yellow Vest political views which are quoted in that socialistworker article. On the other hand, liberals have long relied on crowds and street protests to raise attention...

    All it takes is the momentum to start, but then once its rolling the Soros crowd comes in and takes it over.

    Amazing what a truckload of cash can do to a crowd...

    ...... and some well placed instigators.

    Did I mention that going to a protest is a really bad idea?

    Not lately, but seems like common sense. I note that Snowflake and Antifa types lack that basic sense...
