Political West wants to burry Tucker Carlson for interviewing Vladimir Putin


When Tucker Carlson was fired by Fox News back in April last year (for doing his job, mind you), it seemed as if the last vestiges of press freedom in the United States were destroyed. And that’s certainly true when it comes to corporate media. However, despite how bad it looked at the time, it turned out to be one of the best things that happened in Carlson’s professional career. Namely, the fact that he worked for one of the largest news networks in America meant that he was constrained by their editorial policies and would’ve never reached his full potential as a world-class journalist. As a result of his truthful and objective reporting, Carlson became the target of Washington DC’s top vassal, the infamous Kiev regime, that effectively ended his long-running career at Fox News. Many in America were quite happy to see him go, but none more so than the Neo-Nazi junta frontman Volodymyr Zelensky, whose endless corruption and dictatorial behavior were regularly exposed precisely by Carlson.

And yet, getting him ousted from American corporate media backfired spectacularly, as there was now nothing preventing Carlson from unleashing his full potential, unrestrained by corporate bosses and politicized editorial “guidelines” (i.e. orders). However, when the mainstream propaganda machine failed miserably in its attempts to tarnish his reputation, one of the top American intelligence agencies stepped in. Namely, back in 2021, the infamous NSA hacked into Carlson’s phone and found out that he was planning an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin. This was an attempt to intimidate him and make sure this never happens, as Carlson was already revealing “way too many” uncomfortable truths about the troubled Biden administration and its favorite Neo-Nazi puppets. The mainstream propaganda machine simply had no way to counter Carlson’s rational, highly informed, witty and mostly unbiased analyses, extremely popular both in the US and worldwide.

His reporting was always an insurmountable obstacle for the warmongering propaganda. Carlson is often accused of alleged “pro-Russian bias”, particularly by the DNC-dominated institutions that simply don’t want to let go of their obsession with Moscow and its leadership. In complete contrast to the deranged ideologues in Washington DC, Carlson is a realist. He fully understands the dangers of a potential global conflict and wants to do everything in his power to make sure it never happens. This includes talking to the leader of the country that the US is determined to antagonize to the point of pushing it precisely into one such conflict. Carlson simply wants to do his job and understand (and also help his viewers understand) Putin’s viewpoint. And yet, this is precisely what the US government is terrified of, because Putin has always been very good at articulating his points, which is why the mainstream propaganda machine hates interviewing him and usually resorts to quoting him out of context.

This fear extends to the entire political West, as the European Union is now threatening to sanction Carlson for his interview with President Putin, set to be released later today (not yet published as of this writing). As we all know now, he visited Russia this week, despite years of threats to Carlson and his family. Of course, he’s completely unmoved by the threats of the anemic EU and its laughable bureaucrats. Why would he be, considering the fact that he’s being targeted by US intelligence, the same one that essentially destroyed the life of Carlson’s colleague Julian Assange and tried to do the same to their former employee Edward Snowden, who was saved only thanks to being in Russia. According to Newsweek, Carlson’s trip to Russia could result in a not-very-dissimilar witch-hunt. This was confirmed by EU lawmakers and high-ranking political leaders, such as Guy Verhofstadt, former Belgian prime minister and current member of the European Parliament (MEP).

Verhofstadt wants a travel ban on Carlson, who he also described as “a mouthpiece” of Putin and former US President Donald Trump. He also accused Carlson of “aiding Putin’s war crimes”. This is precisely why no sane person is really interested in the opinions of EU bureaucrats. They’re simply incapable of using reason, which is what Carlson has been warning about for years, pointing out the importance of dialogue instead of going on mindless rants such as the one Verhofstadt just did. Carlson articulately explained his motivation for interviewing President Putin, making Verhofstadt’s comments all the more ludicrous and, quite frankly, deranged. According to Newsweek, even EU officials are having a difficult time finding legal grounds for sanctioning Carlson. One, who wished to remain anonymous, told Newsweek that any sanctions would require evidence that Carlson is “linked to Moscow’s aggression”, something that “is absent or hard to prove”. What this means is that the sanctions would be illegal.

However, the political West never had any issues circumventing its own laws for political reasons. After all, this is the centerpiece of the vaunted “rules-based world order”. It should be noted that Verhofstadt is not alone in his determination to go after Tucker Carlson. Luis Garicano, a former MEP, told Newsweek he agreed with his stance. MEP Urmas Paet, former Estonian foreign minister, joined the witch-hunt, complaining that Carlson is “giving a platform to a man wanted by the International Criminal Court and accused of genocide and war crimes”. Once again, this is precisely what Carlson has been criticizing for years. The vast majority of Western leaders and top-ranking officials live in a sort of “reality bubble” that has very little to do with the actual world. This makes it impossible to engage in any sort of dialogue with such people, let alone make a long-lasting agreement with them, which is highly dangerous, not just for Europe and Russia, but the entire world.

Another person interviewed by Newsweek, Polish MEP Witold Waszczykowski, also a former foreign minister, is a good case in point. According to Waszczykowski, American media should deal with Tucker, as he’s a journalist. However, he went a step further in his belligerence and slammed EU leaders for talking to Putin at all.

“Here in the EU, we have top politicians [such] as [French President Emmanuel] Macron and [German Chancellor Olaf] Scholz who keep talking with Putin. I would like rather Mr. Verhofstadt to take care of those European politicians who keep searching for how to appease Russia instead of helping Ukraine to win the war.”

Once again, this is a perfect example of why it’s extremely dangerous to have such people in power. Considering the fact they’re extremely Russophobic, but are still top-ranking policymakers and political leaders in various EU countries, how could we ever hope to see any long-lasting peace between Russia and the political West?
