With the Senate now looking likely to stay with Republicans, Tucker Carlson noted Wednesday night that had Democrats inched over the line in that race, as well as gaining the White House, “the country as we know it would have ended”.
Carlson emphasised that the proposals on the table from Democrats would have allowed them to fundamentally change the system of government and have “total control over everything.”
“No more democracy, no more dissent, permanent obedience from the rest of us, and they came shockingly close to getting that,” Tucker urged:
“If Democrats had won the White House and the Senate last night, the country as we know it would’ve ended, not because Democrats have bad ideas — though they do — but because Democrats plan to impose an entirely new system on our country,” the host explained.
“With nothing to check their power, the left fully intended to eliminate the traditional American balances within our government, along with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights that constrain their power,” he continued.
Carlson warned that an effort is ongoing to “create a permanent Democratic majority, a one-party state with complete control of the population.”
“Never in our history has any mainstream political party proposed an agenda more radical than this,” Tucker proclaimed.
“They didn’t talk about it much. There’s a reason for that, of course. They didn’t want to scare you, but it was entirely real — and last night it came really close to happening. We should all be deeply grateful that it didn’t,” Carlson told viewers.
The Senate race remains close, with the GOP holding a total of 48 seats at time of writing and Democrats holding 47. With a majority of 51 needed, it is expected that the GOP will secure it with seats in Alaska, North Carolina and Georgia.
