We watched the courageous journalist Tucker Carlson do the patriotic thing and interview Vladimir Putin. Yes, you read that right. It does show a love for your country to try to find out what its rivals are thinking. To provide an outside perspective that doesn’t fit the Official Story concocted by our Deep State, then imposed by our heavily censored media. To try defusing a potentially nuclear Third World War, and to seek a negotiated peace instead of the bloody “quagmire” our own Pentagon wants.
You’re probably reading claims that Carlson is a “traitor” or a “Putin asset” for doing what journalists do — or used to, before the COVID panic and Trump Derangement Syndrome turned those Pinocchios back into puppets. Anybody who says that betrays his own secret fetish: He wants the U.S. to be even more like Putin’s Russia, with media that slavishly repeat whatever the government says, as it imprisons its opponents.
