“Cling to your taboos!” the tweet containing Carlson’s new video declared.
In the new episode, Carlson said that American society is “governed by taboos” and that those taboos have been changing, but not naturally. “What we’re allowed to dislike is being dictated to us from above, sometimes by force,” he said.
He went on to say that while it was previously taboo to target people based on their race, punishing individuals on the basis of skin color is now “mandatory” in the realms of business, government, and higher education, provided that “the victims are white.”
He claimed that adultery was once a serious liability in politics that would be viewed as “disqualifying,” but said this is no longer the case. Carlson claimed that “Barack Obama had a strange” as well as “highly creepy personal life.”
“One by one, with increasing speed, our old taboos have been struck down. Those that remain have lost their moral force. Stealing, flaunting your wealth, striking women, smoking marijuana on the street, shameless public hypocrisy, taking other people’s money for not working — all of these things” were previously viewed as “unacceptable in America,” Carlson said. “Not anymore.”
Carlson said that child molestation is now “teetering on the edge of acceptability.”
“Don’t let them rationalize away your intuitive moral sense. Cling to your taboos like your life depends on them, because it does. Cherish and protect them like family heirlooms. That’s exactly what they are,” he said.
So far, the tweet containing the video has garnered more than 15 million views.
The tweet containing the first episode of Carlson’s show has racked up more than 108 million views.
Axios reported that after Carlson released the first episode of his new show on Twitter, Fox News told the media personality’s lawyers that he had breached his contract. The outlet said a breach-of-contract claim positions Fox News to explore possible legal action against the media figure.
“Fox defends its very existence on freedom of speech grounds. Now they want to take Tucker Carlson’s right to speak freely away from him because he took to social media to share his thoughts on current events,” Carlson’s lawyer Bryan Freedman said in a statement, according to Axios.
Carlson’s decision to drop a second episode indicates that he remains undeterred.
