    And then the fake taxpayer-funded “goodie bag for migrant children” story which didn’t exist. The reporter on the NY Post who was ordered to write that story quit, saying she was coerced into writing it. The basis was one photo of a few donated items, including the Harris book, on one bed in a children’s shelter. The MAGAs eat this stuff up. Too bad they don’t get massive indigestion from it all.

    Be sure to have a good supply of “Plant-Based Beer” to wash all that garbage down with…

    The proper beverages to serve with such a wonder meal is either a diet coke or a meat based lager.

    Red hats make up lies and then defend them to the death.

    What I find most laughable is Republicans getting bent out of shape at the prospect of drinking “plant based beer”. What do they think beer is made from?

    Liberals accused of playing identity politics. Conservatives accused of inflaming culture wars. At the end of the day, 21st century American politics suck as it does only one thing, empowers the corporate culture and oligarchs.

    Matt, you will have to do a follow up now with the same character believing that the search warrant on Giuliani is a fishing expedition conspiracy.

    Carlson’s diatribe is a useful data point for how American conservatism has transformed, especially in the Trump era, from a movement that (at least putatively) believes in limited government to one that primarily prizes marshaling the power of the state to punish those who disagree with it. With Trump in eclipse, Carlson is the most visible face of the new conservative movement.

    Although Carlson makes a lot of ridiculous claims in a short period in this clip, it is his comments about children that are most disturbing. After complaining that mask mandates imposed by the state are equivalent to living in North Korea, Carlson executes two athletic rhetorical maneuvers. First, he goes from describing mask wearing as excessive to describing it as abusive, and second, he elides the difference between a government mandate and a personal choice.

    One doesn’t need a lot of imagination to game out where this is going. Some viewers will take Carlson’s possibly arch exhortations to heart. They’ll call the police and child protective services. In most cases, authorities will ignore those calls. In some cases, especially if the callers repeatedly summon police as Carlson demands, they could be charged with filing false claims; it’s a good bet that neither he nor Fox News will be there to help them if they are. In other cases, encounters will end poorly for the innocent parents involved. The news is full of examples of how police called to respond to petty or wholly imagined offenses end up gravely injuring or even killing people. (Carlson believes Derek Chauvin was wrongly convicted.)

    (To be continued)

    But when government authorities fail to intervene—because, of course, no laws are being broken—Carlson’s fans may feel the moral obligation to take matters into their own hands, just like Edgar Maddison Welch, who stormed into a Washington, D.C., pizzeria heavily armed in 2016, because he wanted to prevent child abuse that he wrongly believed was occurring there. No one was hurt in that incident, though someone easily could have been. Welch spent about three years in prison.

    But Carlson doesn’t object to the state harassing people or exercising undue power. He delights in it, as long as the state is harassing the people he hates. The cruelty, as my colleague Adam Serwer has said, is the point. This is the lodestar of the Trump and post-Trump GOP, which values owning the libs above all—not merely rhetorically, but with the fist of government. Thus Trump asserted that he had the authority to override state and local coronavirus shutdowns (before hastily backtracking when it became clear that he had no such power). He sought to involve the federal government in decisions of colleges and universities in order to muzzle speech. And he celebrated police violence, even as he moaned that he was the victim of overzealous law enforcement.
