The Trump-deranged media, led by CNN’s resident nut case Brian Stelter rounded on Tucker Carlson Thursday after the Fox News anchor criticized the Democratic party, claiming that “Americans are an Afterthought” to them.
“For more than 100 years the Democratic Party was organized around the interest of ordinary Americans” Carlson noted, adding that Democrats ran campaigns against “higher wages, better working conditions” and railed against banks taking liberties.
“To the modern Democratic Party, Americans are an afterthought. Try to find a Democrat running this year on the opioid crisis…or the decline of the middle-class. Hard to find one.” Carlson continued, claiming that all Democrats care about now is getting into power.
“They need reliable new voters. Voters who will support them obediently without making difficult demands like a higher standard of living. That’s why the Democratic Party suddenly supports open borders so fervently,” Carlson stated.
“Immigration is really the only issue that matters to them because packing the electorate is the only way to regain control of this country. Their goal is clear: They will do anything to achieve it.” Carlson added.
Carlson’s monologue triggered Stelter, who labeled it “extreme rhetoric” and asked others on Twitter to “imagine talking this way” all the time.
Can you imagine talking this way? Such extreme rhetoric all the time? Tucker Carlson just now: "To the modern Democratic Party, Americans are an afterthought." pic.twitter.com/xUiKYby2SO

CNBC’s resident unhinged Anti-Trumper John Harwood was also horrified:

Of course, CNN and C/MS/NBC are straight down the line. Their hosts are completely non-partisan.
Oh, no, wait… they’re actually a million times worse, to the point that they call the President a mentally unstable dictator on an hourly basis and claim he was installed by the Russian government.
The backlash against Stelter was swift and uncompromising:
yeah some people spew such BS on the reg on cable TV they have no idea how they come off https://t.co/GMdb73Hpd3

Extreme rhetoric all the time? Have you not been listening to your side? By that I mean the anti-Trump resistance, implicitly endorsed by you and your fellow travelers

From the man who has suggested Trump is an authoritarian, so mentally unhinged he should be removed from office. https://t.co/FXDdWCHjOe

Prove him wrong. Your actions speak for themselves. You are as extreme as anyone

Democrat Cory Booker said those who support Kavanaugh are complicit in evil, so yes I can imagine this. https://t.co/bcU36BJLMZ

Others questioned why Stelter was watching Fox News and not the channel he works for:
Watching Fox are you? A confident runner never looks at the other runners unless they’re in the back of the pack.
— Blue Collar American (@pilotdad66) July 27, 2018
Do you ever watch @cnn?
— Tony martin (@Tonymar15755720) July 27, 2018
Perhaps it’s because no one watches CNN, not even its own employees.
Considering he has a higher audience number than you – @TuckerCarlson is spot on – DEMS continue to push for policies the majority of Americans don't want.
— Lawyerforlaws (@lawyer4laws) July 27, 2018
But what did Carlson actually say that was so “extreme”?
The truth hurts Brian. He’s commenting on actual Democrat actions.

Tucker does a magnificent job of making the Democrats look like idiots. Actually, they do it themselves
— Kambree Kawahine Koa (@KamVTV) July 27, 2018
Is he wrong though? Doesn’t seem extreme to me at all.
— Sarah (@Loki919) July 27, 2018
Extreme rhetoric? No one is buying that remark.
— Nan Kolinski (@NanKolinski) July 27, 2018
“Extreme rhetoric”?? Maybe if Democrats would’ve realized this is the way they come across to every day Americans they wouldn’t have lost the 2016 election. https://t.co/DihpES0auh
— Alex On-Air (@yoalexrapz) July 27, 2018
That isn’t an overstatement.
— T (@corsairstw) July 27, 2018
I guess it was better when it went unsaid even though we know it to be true.
— Treacherous Logic (@Treacherouslogc) July 27, 2018
It's not extreme rhetoric if its true. Dems don't care about the American people.
— Bruh (@1800cnnsucks) July 27, 2018
Tucker is right.
— SmokingDog (@EdgeLurch956) July 27, 2018
What Tucker said is true, Tater. Go to bed.

Tucker is right, and Democrats are clueless.

He's not wrong.

Democrats care more about illegals, that's clear to see. Tucker is right.

Spot on actually the DNC will go to the mat for non-citizens & want to tax the hell out of citizens to get it accomplished. The DNC has made a living from feeding it’s agenda at the taxpayer trough. How is that rhetoric inaccurate? #WalkAway pic.twitter.com/GgU1Qy7UYW
