— TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS:

“There is a huge amount going on in America right now. So many things seem so completely screwed up that it all can be overwhelming. And over time, it’s also misleading.

If you pay too much attention to what’s happening, you can easily conclude that America is a rotten country. But that’s wrong. America is still the best. There are two things about America make it great: the country and its people.

This is a truly beautiful place. That’s the first thing. If you’re absorbed by your phone all day, it’s easy to forget that. But look around. America is a stunning country. Yes, Switzerland has the Alps and Zimbabwe has Victoria Falls. But multiply that by an entire continent and you’ve got what we have in America — from the islands of Puget Sound to the islands in Casco Bay, from the Rockies to the Badlands, from the Upper Peninsula to the Appalachian Mountains.

Spend a day hiking through the Shoshone National Forest in Wyoming. You may not see another person. How can a place so gorgeous be so empty? We’ve got a lot of those here. Wake up in Big Sur in California some morning. The smell of redwoods and salt air will change you. You’ll feel things you inherited from your ancestors coming from places the modern world cannot touch.

We are blessed to live in a place like this, more blessed than we acknowledge. No matter what happens next, no matter who becomes the president now or in the future, nothing can diminish the dignity of an eastern white pine towering above the spruce in a New England forest. All of it is ours to enjoy, thank God.

And we’ve got a lot of people to enjoy it with, an awful lot. Americans are still the best people, misguided as we sometimes are. This isn’t an especially religious country anymore, but surveys on churchgoing do not tell the whole story. Even now, most Americans know they’re not really in charge of the universe. They know there’s something bigger out there, bigger than all of us combined. And when you understand that, when you know in your bones how small you are and how short the ride is likely to be, you tend to treat people better.

This is a profoundly nice country, the nicest in the world. Americans are kind to children, to pets, to strangers. We give more money to charity than any other place. We tip our waiters more. There’s no country on earth you’d rather be lost in, because someone will help you in America. We don’t eat dogs, we rescue them. They sleep on the bed, we give them funny names, we cry when they die.

It’s a sweet country. In some ways, it’s getting better. The music’s definitely improving. So is the food. Believe it or not, we still make things here and a lot of them are pretty good now. Americans love innovation, but they are distrustful of anyone’s radical plans for the future. Most people here don’t want an abrupt reshuffling of everything. They prefer incremental improvement. That’s why we’ve had only one revolution. It’s why we fought off the metric system all these years, and thank heaven we have.

It’s why we still have Christmas and always will. Christmas in America is great. Even if you don’t really understand what it’s about, and many people don’t, it’s still the happiest time of the year and therefore it’s the most American.

America is a happy country, despite everything. Our happiness is fundamental. It’s in our founding documents. It’s in our people. Nothing happening right now can take that away.

Former MSNBC Host Labels Condoleezza Rice A “Soldier For White Supremacy” After She Denounced Critical Race Theory

Claims “Condoleezza Rice’s recent appearance on The View was offensive and disgusting”

Former MSNBC Host Labels Condoleezza Rice A “Soldier For White Supremacy” After She Denounced Critical Race Theory

A former MSNBC host has branded Condoleezza Rice a “disgusting soldier for white supremacy,” after the former Secretary of State spoke out against the teaching of Critical Race Theory in American schools.

In an op-ed Toure Neblett declared that Rice’s “thoughts on critical race theory are completely white-centric, as in, they revolve around the thoughts and needs of white people.”

He added that “Condoleezza Rice’s recent appearance on The View was offensive and disgusting for many reasons, but she was who we thought she was: a soldier for white supremacy.”

Rice said on The View that in her opinion CRT “is a conversation that has gone in the wrong direction,” further explaining that “I would like black kids to be completely empowered, to know that they are beautiful in their blackness, but in order to do that, I don’t have to make white kids feel bad for being white.”

“One of the worries that I have about the way that we’re talking about race is that it either seems so big that somehow white people now have to feel guilty for everything that happened in the past,” Rice, now the Director of the Hoover Institution, further emphasised.

She added, “We teach the good and we teach the bad of history, but what we don’t do is make 7 and 10 year-olds feel that they are somehow bad people because of the color of their skin. We’ve been through that and we don’t want to do that again.”

In his response, Neblett countered that “White children and adults should absolutely feel bad about the past atrocities committed by white Americans.”

“They should feel guilty. They should cringe at what their ancestors did. They should also understand that modern white power is directly related to those atrocities,” he further declared.

Video: John Oliver Attacks Cops For Resisting Vaccine Mandate; “If An Officer Wants To Quit, F**king Let Them”

Video: John Oliver Attacks Cops For Resisting Vaccine Mandate; “If An Officer Wants To Quit, F**king Let Them”

“Comedian” John Oliver once again used his HBO platform to shill for government vaccine mandates by verbally attacking police who are refusing to go along with forced medication, calling them “hypocrites” and saying that it’s good that the refuseniks are quitting their jobs.

As thousands of police are standing against the mandates and walking off the job, Oliver declared Sunday that “It is true that all over the country, a small number of police officers have received disproportionate coverage after threatening to resign over COVID mandates.”

“They framed this as a matter of individual liberty, even in cases where very little was being asked of them,” Oliver further proclaimed.

The British host then stated “There is also the key matter of fact that the police are supposed to keep the public safe. That is the point of their jobs,” reasoning further that those who refuse to get vaccinated “don’t seem to give much of a shit about that.”

He then cheaply invoked race in an asinine point, saying that “The constant refrain we hear from cops every time they kill an unarmed black person is ‘They should have complied with commands,’ because as long as you comply, things will supposedly go well. But that only seems to work one way.”

“When officers are asked to follow simple rules or face consequences, a not insignificant amount of them flip their shit,” Oliver barked, continuing “You know what, if an officer wants to quit over this, fucking let them.”

“Let the individuals who clearly don’t care about public safety stop being in charge of public safety. It’s really that simple,” Oliver continued, also describing cops filming themselves doing ‘walkie drops’ as “pathetic” and “sad”.

Oliver also personally attacked Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara after he urged officers not to comply with the mandates.

“Next time someone says to you, ‘Not all cops are bad,’ you can respond to them, ‘No… just their favorite ones,’” Oliver declared.
