“You often hear people say they’re worried about authoritarianism coming to America, well it’s here.”
Tucker Carlson responded to the news that General Milley went behind President Trump’s back and promised to warn China ahead of any military operations, by labelling it “one of the scariest things that has ever happened in this country.”
“Let that sink in,” Carlson urged, quoting Milley allegedly saying to China’s top military commander, General Li Zuocheng “If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise.”
Carlson continued “So according to this account, our country’s top defense officials secretly colluded with our chief military rival to undercut the elected President of the United States.”
“That’s treason. It is a crime. And apparently, Mark Milley is not the only person who was implicated in this crime. Others knew it was happening,” Carlson continued.
“Our intelligence agencies almost certainly heard Mark Milley’s call. If they can read emails from a cable news show on Fox, what are the chances they were aware that the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff was speaking to a senior Chinese general and what they were saying,” Carlson said, referring to previous allegations that the U.S. intelligence spied on his communications.
Carlson concluded, “You often hear people say they’re worried about authoritarianism coming to America, well it’s here. That’s what this is. It’s authoritarian government. It’s government by unelected unaccountable leaders who are willing to use violence to preserve their power.”
