Two days after parting ties with Fox News, former host Tucker Carlson made an appeal for Americans to effectively give up the uniparty complex and be open to diverse perspectives in a video statement.
In his first tweet after being published, Tucker Carlson reflected on the decency of Americans, a topic that is sometimes obscured in the establishment media bubble where people frequently mistake shouting battles for meaningful debate.
“One of the first things you realize when you step outside the noise for a few days is how many genuinely nice people there are in this country,” Tucker began. “Kind and decent people. People who really care about what’s true, and I know a bunch of hilarious people also. A lot of those. It’s got to be the majority of the population. Even now. So that’s heartening.”
This, according to Tucker, helped him realize the level of extreme idiocy demonstrated during “most of the debates you see on television.”
“They are completely irrelevant. They mean nothing,” he said. “In five years, we won’t even remember that we had them. Trust me as someone who’s participated. And yes, at the same time, and this is the amazing thing, the undeniably big topics, the ones that will define our future, get virtually no discussion at all: War, civil liberties, emerging science, demographic change, corporate power, natural resources.”
“When was the last time you heard a legitimate debate about any of those issues,” he continued. “It has been a long time. Debates like that are not permitted in American media.”
Carlson said that both political parties and their donor classes have basically decided what Americans will be talking about based on what benefits them. He likened this “consensus” to a one-party state, what some conservative activists often refer to as the “uniparty.”
“Our current orthodoxies won’t last. They’re brain-dead. Nobody actually believes them,” he said. “Hardly anyone’s life is improved by them. This moment is too inherently ridiculous to continue, and so it won’t. The people in charge notice, that’s why they’re hysterical and aggressive. They’re afraid. They’ve given up persuasion, they’re resorting to force. But it won’t work. When honest people say what’s true, calmly and without embarrassment, they become powerful.”
Carlson ended his speech with an appeal for optimism:
At the same time, the liars who have been trying to silence them shrink. And they become weaker. That’s the iron law of the universe. True things prevail. Where can you still find American saying true things. There aren’t many places left, but there are some, and that’s enough. As long as you can hear the words there is hope. See you soon.

The internet went absolutely crazy after seeing the video.
More than 12.6 million people have watched the video on Twitter as of this writing. More than 70,000 retweets, 9,800 quote tweets, and over 285,000 likes have also been given to the post.
The success of Carlson is astonishing, and the number of viewers who watched his video on Twitter has quadrupled compared to the three million viewers every night he typically attracted on Fox News.
It’s obvious that Tucker is in high demand, and he has one of the broadest audiences in the country. The American people are eager for his return and want to hear what he has to say. The response to the video is unequivocal proof of it.
