Back in April 2009, the Department of Homeland Security released a sinister paper. The DHS’ Domestic Extremism Lexicon made a list of groups that they deemed to be violent domestic security threats. As a reader of 71 Republic, it’s likely you’re on a number of them. By publishing this list, the DHS declared war on freedom-fighters across the country. The mainstream media, however, largely ignored the publication despite its serious ramifications.
Amid rumors that Tucker Carlson may have suddenly been suspended off of Fox News, some are taking this claim even further, predicting that Ben Shapiro may replace him. While these claims have remained only rumors, it is important to not lose sight of the importance of Carlson and his platform. Whether these rumors become reality or not, I fully stand by this defense of Carlson.
Many small-government activists, even, have gone as far as to condemn and chastise Carlson for his criticism of Austrian economics. While the claims made by Carlson in this regard are short-sighted and unwarranted, many conservatives and libertarians have allowed this to obscure the importance of Carlson. The fact of the matter is that while the Hannitys, Limbaughs, and Levins of the world continuously call for more war in the Middle East and elsewhere, Carlson remains a bold anti-war maverick. And one of very few on Fox News.
I’m pretty cynical about politics. I’m cynical to the point where I don’t care who will win or lose because to me, it’s all theater. Watching the democratic debates, I realize that there is no debating happening. Rather, politicians are spewing pre-rehearsed talking points to garner publicity for whatever the hell they went on stage for. However, Kamala Harris stands out, and not in a good way. Thanks to the comments of Tulsi Gabbard, she stands out as a disgusting authoritarian and modern-day slave driver.
On the first day of the Democratic debates, candidate Tulsi Gabbard surprised the nation with her graceful and consistent speaking. On a roster of 25 other Democratic nominees, the competition buried her. Candidates like Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and Joe Biden stole the spotlight. But after the debates, Twitter, Facebook, and 4/8Chan were alight with the name “Tulsi”. In fact, she was the most searched candidate on the night of her debate. But what was really striking was the way those on the American political right jumped to support Gabbard.
Last night during the Democratic National Debate, dark horse candidate Tulsi Gabbard showed that she is a force to be reckoned with. Her veteran status and anti-war stance resonate with many disenfranchised Americans. After decades of war in the Middle East, the American people are fed up with endless war. Post-debate, Gabbard takes the lead for searches among Democratic candidates:
