Tucker Carlson: America versus the Political Class

“Today’s political polarization stems from a backlash against the entrenched elites and the manufactured consensus they’ve long championed from atop the culture’s commanding heights: Ordinary Americans are simply fed up with self-righteous elites for having stifled dissent on issues that matter—the economy, government, and war. This provocative thesis emanates not from left-wing gadflies like Noam Chomsky or Michael Moore, but from conservative pundit Tucker Carlson, who cheers on the populist revolt from the studios of the Fox News Channel and in his new bestseller, Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class Is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution.”
