WE ARE ALL SOCIALISTS NOW: Tucker Carlson, Breitbart News Embrace Big Government Trumpian Redistributionism

Back in December, President-Elect Donald Trump visited the Carrier plant in Indiana. He had just used government-sponsored crony capitalism to convince Carrier to maintain a few hundred jobs in the state, and he was there to mark his dubious achievement. He explained, “Corporate America is going to have to understand that we have to take care of our workers also.” His vice president, Mike Pence, then piped up, “The free market has been sorting it out and America’s been losing. Every time, every time.”
Bernie Sanders didn’t win the battle, but he clearly won the war.
He never could have won the war without President Trump. Trump’s embrace of government cramdowns and giveaways has now corrupted supposed conservative thoughtleaders down to the bone. Take, for example, Tucker Carlson, who is blowing out the ratings in primetime at Fox News, and who will now be taking over Bill O’Reilly’s coveted timeslot. On Tuesday evening, he hosted billionaire Mark Cuban. Cuban made the capitalist case that free flow of labor is necessary in order to strengthen the economy and generate better goods and services at competitive prices – Economics 101.
LISTEN to the Carlson and Cuban ABOVE
Here’s Carlson’s counter, defending President Trump’s economically illiterate strategy of tariffs, subsidies, and bans on employment for immigrants: “There are many in betweens … Would you apply market forces to your family, to your marriage? Capitalism is not a religion, it’s an effective way of generating wealth … I like capitalism, but when it hurts Americans, I’m willing to make adjustments. Wouldn’t you be?”
This is fully idiotic. --->
