Tucker Carlson's op-ed against Biden's infrastructure-plan is a special kind of special.

https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/tucker-carlson-biden-infrastructure-bill-not-about-infrastructure

And by the way, $2 trillion sounds like a lot for anything. Wonít that kind of spending cause hyperinflation? If you print money like itís not worth anything, doesnít the value of that money decline? Normal people may have had questions like that.

...

a word about who will pay for it. In fact, we only need one word: You. Taxes are going up dramatically. They didnít have to, actually. Tax revenues no longer fund the ambition of our political class. The Federal Reserve does. When politicians want something, they just print the money. Itís called Modern Monetary Theory. Theyíve been doing this for years, and itís accelerating. Thereís no actual reason to raise taxes anymore, for anything. But Joe Biden wants to, just to punish you. And he plans to do that.


So, Tucker says that Biden shouldn't pay for this via debt. And in the next paragraph he argues that Biden SHOULD pay for this with debt and is choosing to NOT pay with debt specifically because he hates you.



First, is this really about infrastructure? Bridges? Roads? Airports?

...

Only about 5% of that $2 trillion will actually go to roads and bridges. So, 5% on infrastructure, 95% on social engineering.

...

OE BIDEN: Imagine what we can do, what's within our reach when we modernize those highways. You and your family could travel coast to coast without a single tank of gas on board a high-speed train and connect high-speed, affordable, reliable internet wherever you live.


According to Tucker Carlson, airports, trains and high-speed internet don't count as infrastructure but as "social engineering".



Then he switches topics for a little bit to lament how a highway that was built on purpose to cut through the middle of a black neighborhood must stay and is in no way racist. (I bet, Tucker isn't even lying here. I bet he honestly doesn't know about the racist building- and zoning-policies of the 1950s and 60s.)



He also wants to "eliminate exclusionary zoning" and "needless barriers to producing affordable housing." So your neighborhoods may have to make way for "multi-family dwellings." You donít want multi-family dwellings in your neighborhood? Doesnít matter. Itís equity. Shut up, racist.


BLACK PEOPLE ARE COMING FOR YOU!
BE AFRAID!
BE VERY AFRAID!

These people are not about fixing the potholes. It's about "saving our democracy" and evolving into a "multi-racial democracy," as if we don't have that already.


The attack on the Capitol never happened! Clamping down on voting in black communities is in no way racist!

According to Sandy Cortez, pampered sciion of Westchester

Wait... I thought she's an uneducated lower-class waitress who does not belong in politics?











Honest question: Is Tucker Carlson dumb, or is he playing a dumb persona for money?

2. Tucker is one of the worst

He's one of those privileged, educated idiots with strong beliefs -including the crazy belief that his own status was earned by him...somehow.

Basically, when he looks smart it's a product of his education. The stupidity, racism, and hate is his own, though.
