Tucker Carlson, – who despite getting dropped from massive advertisers, is the most-watched cable show this week – penned another op-ed for Fox News.
In it, he discussed the fact that racial tension is growing, and he does not chalk it up to coincidence.
Tucker wrote, “Is anyone in power defending absolute equality under the law? If there was ever a time to remind America that we all have equal value under God, that time is right now. But no. No one in charge is saying that. Our leaders are cowards when we need them to be brave. They are muddled when we need them to think clearly. It’s possible they no longer even believe in equality.”
“But Democrats know better than that; they don’t lie to themselves. They understand there is a revolution in progress. The death of George Floyd may have sparked widespread outrage — sincere outrage — and they may share that outrage. But they also know that what is happening now has very little to do with George Floyd or people like him. Like all revolutions, the point is to destroy the current system and replace it with something new.”
He then writes about the simple notion that “All people are created by God with equal moral value. Period. Every one of them.”
“To the extent America has failed to live up to that principle of equality, we are ashamed of it — we should be. Equality is the most important thing we have. We should defend it. We should practice it,” he wrote.
“Now for the first time in our history, we’re witnessing a broad and powerful attack on the principle of equality. Daily, we are told that all people are not in fact created equal. Some were born with moral stain, others were not. Some Americans are guilty, some are innocent. Nothing can change this because it was all determined at birth. All we can do is respond accordingly.”

In North Korea, children are sent to prison camps for the sins of their ancestors. And unfortunately, we have seen it here, too. You may have wondered how politicians could have justified practices as perverse as slavery and Jim Crow in a country with a constitution like ours and the answer is simple — by arguing that not all people are created equal.
Some had lesser moral value from birth. That’s what they said. Those people carried the stain of sin with them. You are allowed to treat them differently based on who they were.
The promise of absolute equality under the law is all we have. Laws are designed to protect the weak, not the strong.

At the time, many understood that this was a lie. Slavery persisted for hundreds of years, but there were always some in authority who considered it evil. Not evil simply because it was abusive, which of course it was, but because the existence of it violated the central principle of this country. And they were right.
Where are those people now? Look around. Is anyone in power defending absolute equality under the law? If there was ever a time to remind America that we all have equal value under God, that time is right now. But no. No one in charge is saying that. Our leaders are cowards when we need them to be brave. They are muddled when we need them to think clearly. It’s possible they no longer even believe in equality.
