An Evening with Tucker Carlson: America's Elites Are on a Ship of Fools 5
Buy Tucker Carlson's book, "Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class Is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution"

Tucker's presentation begins at 5:41.

This event was held October 16, 2018 and hosted by the Independent Institute.

Tucker Carlson discusses America's elites, a group whose power and wealth from government privilege have grown beyond imagination even as the rest of the country has floundered. The people who run America now barely interact with it, and in his #1 New York Times, best-selling book, Ship of Fools, Carlson offers a blistering critique of our new overlords. Traditional liberals who worried about whales and defended free speech have been replaced by authoritarians who hide their hard-edged agenda behind identity politics. They’ll fleece you while lecturing you about bathrooms, plastic straws, and safe spaces.

“Left and right,” Carlson says, “are no longer meaningful categories in America. The rift is between those who benefit from the status quo, and those who don’t.” Our leaders are fools, Carlson concludes, “unaware that they are captains of a sinking ship.” At this event, and in his signature fearless and witty style, he addresses the all-important question: How do we put the country back on course?

Would you rather watch an hour of Stephen Colbert's so-called "comedy" or this? No contest, right?

When I listen to people like Tucker Carlson, I believe that America still has a good chance to come out on top! God Bless you Mr. Carlson!

Tucker Carlson is so refreshingly self efacing (I'm not an abstract thinker, I really am a talk show host) yet he has one of the fastest, most agile minds in public speaking and commentating. It's partly gift, partly experience and a fair dose of disciplined, rapid-fire concentration. He really is a tour de force in the journalistic world and his cache of eloquence, knowledge and how to order them will continue to grow.

Never seen Tucker in this type of setting - 2 thoughts.... he is very intelligent and is a hell of a communicator.

I am a foreign language teacher (German) at the high school level, and I have been censored for trying to spread CONSERVATIVE values. In fact, I have had my position threatened by the administration at my school. Why? Because I voted for President Trump, and for no other reason. What is really sad, is that (here in rural Texas) the executive principal and one of the three assistant principals are from California. If you do not believe in their "liberal" BS, they will bully and threaten you. It appears, that nothing is being done about this. Sad but true.

Tucker is great. He likes to add humor to his Fox show and that is why I never miss it. He is a good man and tells it how he sees it.

I, an Australian, have for my 70 odd years on this planet, taken comfort in the notion that the USA’s commitment to the democratic ideal was absolute and would sustain and inspire others in places where the rights and value of the individual are not so firmly grounded. The USA leftist rejection of the outcome of the last presidential election, their rejection of the notion that people who don’t share their views are entitled to a say in who should govern and what government should do or not do, is a repudiation of the central tenets of the system they claim to be protecting. Thank you for the illumination and call to arms

Tucker is great! One of the few left in mainstream media that speaks honestly and truthfully.

Tucker is such a great communicator...I hope Fox never takes his program away. His voice is so needed in America.

I am a Brit and I trust Tucker more than anyone in the TV media. He has a way to cut through the crap and get to the point so quick. I think Fox is a breath of fresh air when compared to the liberal media in the US and UK, and across most of the Western World...

Been loving Tucker since he told me 15 years ago that "political correctness isn't intended to teach us how to's intended to teach us how to THINK!".

I love that Tucker uses his position at Fox to highlight what others are unwilling/unable to. Keep working for the people and opening our eyes! <3

I read Tucker's book, it was well though out and well written and it helped me understand more about the broken minds of the elites

Tucker is a gift to mankind. Whether or not they appreciate him.

I watch Tucker as often as I can, which in the UK is only YouTube clips, we need to clone this guy and set him loose on the BBC.

Tucker always impresses me with his honesty, loyalty to true American values, his humility, and his brilliant mind!

Tucker, me too. Native Californian, but oh so disappointed with my State. Place has deteriorated drastically. Don’t know how to fix it.
