Tucker takes a moment to relish grieving tyrants; left’s reaction to Twitter says everything about motive

In what he referred to as a rare “good news show,” Fox News host Tucker Carlson explained Monday night that the reason for his positive outlook was because “tonight the tyrants are grieving.”

To open “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the host went over what the purchase of Twitter by entrepreneur Elon Musk ultimately means and why opponents of the acquisition, namely liberals, were losing their virtual minds over the development. “You just became a little more powerful,” he explained based on the expectation that Musk will indeed be a “free speech absolutist.”

“The people already in charge just became a little less powerful. It’s that simple, and it’s that profound,” he added.

Carlson said, of the people “who totally believed they’d be able to rule without limit, you’re watching those people learn that, actually, other people get to talk too and that realization is crushing to them. It’s the one thing they fear and that tells you everything about why those people should never be near power. People who want a monopoly on speech and thought, hate Elon Musk not because he’s a racist, he’s not, but because they can’t control him.”

“They hate him because he persists in saying things like this,” he said setting up a clip where Musk replied to a question about his reasoning for wanting to buy the social media company.

“Well, I think it’s very important for there to be an inclusive arena for free speech,” the billionaire expressed. “My strong, intuitive sense is that having a public platform that is maximally trusted and broadly inclusive is extremely important to the future of civilization. I don’t care about the economics at all.”

“So free speech is extremely important to civilization,” Carlson recapped. “Are you triggered by that? It’s often hard to know who’s on what side, so much lying. Who are the good guys and who are the bad guys? Well, here’s a very clear, simple, and unerring test. Who are the tyrants? They’re anyone who is bothered by the idea that other people might get to talk. That is an unfailing test. It’s 100 percent accurate.”

“Would you allow people who disagree with you to talk?” he asked plainly. “If you wouldn’t, you were a tyrant and tonight the tyrants are grieving.”

There was proof enough in that based on the response Carlson received to a two-word tweet he posted on his previously locked out account.

“We’re back,” he wrote. In contrast, it took bestselling author Stephen King twice as many words to publicly assure everyone that this was something he didn’t actually care about.

Warning: Adult Language

While others joined Carlson in flocking back to previously shuttered accounts, members of Congress revealed exactly how threatened they were by Musk’s purchase by proposing greater taxes on the billionaire.

As they called to punish a wealthy businessman, who may end up doing more for individual liberty than any Democratic pipe dream could ever even hope to achieve, Carlson explained how precisely this proved his point.

“Why are they so mad?” he asked. “Because their monopoly on speech and information, the ability to control what you believe, has been broken. So once again, they’re resorting to force to get you to shut up. This is not an attack on Elon Musk. They’re not going to tax him into poverty. He’s the world’s richest man. This is an attack on you and your right to speak freely, to express your conscience in public. But for once, it’s not working and the media are infuriated. They’re profoundly threatened by a free internet and so they’re panicked.”
