Tucker: Biden’s response to the Russia-Ukraine war further proves he hates the middle classTucker Carlson details the consequences of banning Russian oil imports

March 8, 2022 – Tucker Carlson Tonight – Fox News Channel

Tucker Carlson excerpt:

You may have noticed that Joe Biden announced today a new front in his ongoing war against America’s middle class. Biden didn’t frame it that way, of course, Democrats rarely say what they mean. They tell you it’s about something else.

In this case, Biden told us it was about Vladimir Putin. Biden explained that we’re going to hurt Putin by making it illegal for Americans to buy Russian energy. This, he said, will amount to a massive moral victory for us. We’re going to feel great about ourselves. And at the same time, it will be a crushing defeat for the Russians who of course, deserve it.

The unity was so heady, in fact so delightful and intoxicating, that no one remembered to ask the most basic question: Why exactly are we doing this? What’s the point? Is the point to bankrupt Vladimir Putin? That might be worth doing, but this won’t do it.

Putin already has ready markets around the world for his oil, starting in China, in India and Turkey. So that’s not going to work. Maybe the point is to force Russian troops to withdraw from Ukraine. That would definitely be worth doing, but no, that’s not the point, either. Joe Biden will typically say absolutely anything, but even Joe Biden didn’t claim today that sanctioning Russian oil will end the war in Ukraine because it won’t.

So, who exactly are these sanctions aimed at? Think about it. If you want to identify the target of a penalty, consider who’s going to suffer most from it. And in this case, the answer could not be clear. It’s middle-income Americans. They’re the ones who were crushed for two years under COVID restrictions. They’re the ones who are about to be pummeled by shutting down more energy sources. Notice a theme here? The people in charge hate the middle class above all. So, it’s not Vladimir Putin who’s getting punished, it’s American citizens. It’s you. It’s not speculation.

 

You are about to get a lot poorer. That’s guaranteed. You’ll notice as you read this that is the one thing that somehow Joe Biden forgot to mention today. …

 

On his first day in office, Biden single-handedly killed the Keystone XL Pipeline. Then, just days before Russia invaded Ukraine, weirdly, Biden’s administration shut down all new energy leases and permits on federal land. That happened. Vladimir Putin did not do that. Joe Biden did it. Biden’s publicist tried to explain that actually preventing domestic energy production, which they have done, is very different from holding back domestic energy production. …

 

Sometimes, as Stephen Colbert reminds us, life is about making tough moral choices and that’s especially true now. If at the end of this project, this protracted exercise and social reorganization achieved through COVID plus a war with Russia, if at that point, whenever it is, we no longer have a self-sufficient middle class, if people who make under $100,000 a year are more desperate and demoralized and dependent on government than they’ve ever been, if the only Americans who remain truly free at that point are the oligarchs, well, at least we can say we helped democracy.

When Mark Zuckerberg controls everything in America, you will know it’s a truly democratic system. Justin Trudeau understands this. He ran over members of his middle class with horses because that’s what it took to preserve democracy in Canada. And then he went further. He seized truckers’ bank accounts and then he shut down a coffee shop that serves people who didn’t vote for him. That’s what democracy looks like.

Elizabeth Warren was excited when she saw this kind of democracy at work. Warren knows that if we’re going to preserve democracy in America, if we’re going to fight Russia, then Elizabeth Warren is going to need fingertip control of your family’s finances now and always. And by the way, don’t try and hide anything from Elizabeth Warren, say, in cryptocurrency, because if you do, Elizabeth Warren will know you are working for Vladimir Putin.

And by the way, you better not complain about this. Good Americans love higher gas prices. They love suffering for a cause they don’t understand. CNN looked into it and that’s what they found.

CNN CORRESPONDENT: People we’ve spoken to over the last couple of weeks, they’re OK paying higher prices if it means holding Russia accountable for what they are doing in Ukraine, but these prices are likely going to creep higher.

It turns out Americans are delighted to be poor and helpless. They love it because poverty means holding Russia accountable, not Putin’s poverty, that’s not going to happen, your poverty.

Well, how exactly does your poverty hold Putin accountable? CNN didn’t ask that question, but the polling company Rasmussen did ask. That’s what they do. They asked this question, “If a wider war breaks out in Europe, should the US military be involved?” Pretty simple question.

The answer was not simple, though. The answer varied by income. This may not surprise you. The people who actually fight our wars, the people making under $30,000 a year were overwhelmingly opposed to this war. Only 37% of them supported military action, and then it changed going up. …

Because in a democracy you can safely ignore the middle class and so our leaders are doing that.

REP. STEVE COHEN: But the truth is, we should be thinking about the fact that when Americans go to fill up their cars that they should think about sticking it to Putin when they put that gas handle in your gas tank, it’s going to cost a little more and part of it’s going to be because of Russia and just stick it to Putin.

REP. ADAM SMITH: Now, here in America, we got to be ready for the fact that will drive up oil prices, that will drive up gas prices and if we are really standing with Ukraine, we have to be prepared to absorb that.

SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM: Just ban all Russian imports into the United States in terms of oil and gas. Four percent of our oil supply comes from Russia. We can easily make that up. So, what we haven’t done yet is go after the oil and gas sector in Russia. That’s the Achilles heel to Putin’s war machine.

“We have to tell you that virtually every elected Republican in Washington, D.C. is fully on board with this, which is another way of saying they are totally committed to screwing their own supposed constituency, which would be America’s shrinking, desperate middle class. Those are the people who vote Republican and this is what they get in return. No apology. Shafted.

It’s hard to remember a betrayal at this scale and yes, we have been here before, by the way, we’ve been in conflicts with Russia for a long time. The United States traded with the Russians through the height of the Cold War when the Soviet Union and United States had nuclear weapons pointed right at each other and we worried one might go off. We traded with Joseph Stalin in the middle of his terror at the very moment he was murdering four million, yes, Ukrainians. That happened. And then we armed Stalin.

We armed the Soviet Army as he was killing Ukrainians and the New York Times endorsed all of it. But now, because Putin invaded Ukraine, effectively encouraged by the Biden administration to do that, which is true, because that happened, we are going to send billions of dollars to the Saudi theocracy and then to the Iranians and then to Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela and at the same time, we’re going to embrace green energy, which means giving the government of China complete control over a power grid here in America. That’s our plan. Are you confused by it? Don’t be. It’s a moral victory. Let us know when you get tired of winning.
