Fox News Channel star Tucker Carlson dropped a bombshell during his opening monologue on Thursday — and it helps explain a lot about what is happening in America.
Liberals are afraid all the time, Carlson said. With the help of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her media allies, that fear is coming to the mainstream.
Look no further than the U.S. National Guard lockdown in Washington, D.C.

“There’s nothing rational about that behavior, but you shouldn’t be surprised by it,” the Fox News star said. “Modern liberalism is not a coherent worldview, it’s a deeply unhappy, high-strung personality type.”
“Wokeness is what you get when people are miserable inside.”
Liberals despise people like this, of course, and on some level, they know they’re hated right back,” he said. “They worry that someday there will be a backlash against the people in charge, which, of course, is them.”
“That’s their biggest fear, a peasant revolt,” he said, explaining that many in the mainstream media — led by Pelosi and Democratic Party leadership — had predicted a violent attack by supporters of former President Donald Trump on Thursday. There was supposed to be a violent attempt to overthrow the U.S. government.
“A lot of liberals were certain that March 4 was the day the right-wing revolution would finally begin. March 4, they believed, with something called ‘QAnon Inauguration Day,'” Carlson explained. “They’d heard about it from Nancy Pelosi, who told her bodyguards to write up a report on the threat of QAnon Inauguration Day. So that’s what they did.”
“We never really learned any details, but members of Congress were not taking chance. Many of them fled the Capitol Thursday,” he said. “House leaders rescheduled votes so that the rank-and-file legislators could escape with their lives, if not with their dignity.”

Of course, absolutely nothing happened on Thursday.
Yet the National Guard units deployed in D.C. still aren’t allowed to return home.
“This is very strange behavior for a democracy. In a democracy, leaders are supposed to rule with the consent of the governed. You would think that might have occurred to some people on Capitol Hill,” Carlson said. “If we’re this afraid of American voters, maybe something’s wrong.”
“Maybe we’re not doing a very good job. Maybe we ought to shut up for a second and listen to the complaints of the people whose lives we control. Maybe then we wouldn’t need razor wire around the Capitol,” he explained. “Apparently, no one in Washington has thought of this.”
“Instead, they’ve convinced themselves that the only Americans who have a problem with the way things are currently going must have been brainwashed by QAnon.”
Meanwhile, as the left prepares itself for battle against imaginary threats, regular Americans are facing real ones on the streets of our cities.

“For all the concern over the safety of our elected leaders, there doesn’t seem to be any concern for the safety of the people who elected them,” he said. “Capitol Hill looks like the Green Zone in Baghdad, but the rest of the city looks like the area outside the Green Zone. Residential neighborhoods in Washington and in cities around the country haven’t been this dangerous in years.”
“Americans are dying in huge numbers from street crime, but no one in Congress cares. They’re too busy spending tax dollars to shield themselves from the QAnon Shaman and his 70-year-old accomplices.”
Carlson pointed to the spike in murder rates in places like Oakland, California, and Toledo, Ohio as the places with the real problems… not Capitol Hill.
“According to an analysis by The Intercept, last year, the year of BLM, saw the largest recorded one-year rise in murders in American history. Fifteen people were murdered in Oakland, California just in January,” Carlson said. “Nine people have been murdered in Toledo so far this year, double the number from last year.”
So where is the National Guard for the people of Toledo?
Don’t expect it anytime soon.

“[T]he residents of Toledo aren’t getting a quick reaction force from Nancy Pelosi…” he said. “Maybe if they claim that QAnon is doing the killing, they will.”
