Tucker Carlson and Guest Blame Diversity and 'Woke' Culture for California Fires

Fox News host Tucker Carlson and his guest, conservative YouTube personality Dave Rubin, both insisted Tuesday night that the wildfires burning across California are due largely to progressive ideology, “woke” culture, and diversity in hiring.

During Tuesday’s broadcast of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Carlson welcomed on Rubin, a political commentator and podcaster, to discuss the issues surrounding the large fires engulfing the state, including those related to the electrical grid and firefighting methods.

“PG&E strikes me as almost a metaphor for the destruction of the state,” Carlson said about the state’s power company. “Here’s the utility which doesn’t really know anything about its own infrastructure but knows everything about the race of its employees. How did we get there?”

After noting that he lives near one of the fires in the Los Angeles area, Rubin immediately took aim at liberal politics as the main reason the wildfires have grown so large and dangerous.

“The problem right now is that everything, EVERYTHING, from academia to public utilities to politics, everything that goes woke, that buys into this ridiculous progressive ideology that cares about what contractors are LGBT or how many black firemen we have or white this or Asian that, everything that goes that road eventually breaks down,” he declared.

As Carlson nodded and said “that’s true,” Rubin continued, complaining that this isn’t how “freedom is supposed to operate.”

“What is supposed to happen—imagine if your house was on fire,” he added. “Would you care what the public utility or what the fire company, what contractor they brought in, what gender or sexuality or any of those things he or she was? It’s just absolutely ridiculous.”

The Fox News host continued to agree with Rubin, who went on to tie PG&E’s preemptive blackouts to a lack of “libertarian or conservative-minded people in California to fight what the progressives are doing to the state.”

“If you can’t keep the lights on and you can’t keep the place from burning down, you’ve reached the point where there is no kind of lying about it anymore,” Carlson concluded. “It’s falling apart. It’s a disaster. It’s not civilized anymore.”

6. only if accomplished by 1 paper match at a time

Line up homeless, immigrants, poor people, POC, Democrats -- from specific victims to more general -- giving each 1 match. If the two survive, they're pronounced innocent.

5. Bullshit

The fires were caused because California didn’t rake their forests.

7. Not even a dog whistle. Just blatant racism. Because what they're saying, rather clearly, is that...

...persons of color and non-cisgendered people are incompetent, that lights would be on and fires wouldn't be burning if only cisgendered white people were working for PG&E and if all first responders were cisgendered white people.

The Democratic Party is said to have moved "too far left," while the media (and many Democrats, sadly) never consider the possibility that the Republican Party is evil and off the deep end.
