Tucker: Left-Wing Political Conference Shows 'Intolerant' Dems Ready for 'Radical' Change
Tucker Carlson said the Democratic Party has a "strong chance" to take back the House of Representatives in November's election.
He sent a team from "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to a left-wing political conference in Louisiana, where a "far more radical and intolerant version of the party" seemed to be on the rise.
Carlson said that if Democrats take back the House, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) -- if elected Speaker -- would have "unfettered subpoena power" and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) would lead the Financial Services Committee, currently chaired by Republican Jeb Hensarling of Texas.
He said that the Netroots Nation conference hosted many potential 2020 presidential players, and showed that the "ascendant Democratic Party is not the party you grew up with."
Carlson said that socialism was once "discredited" by both parties, but that key speakers portrayed a new vision that incorporated its ideals.
He played video of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) calling for "doubl[ing] down" on progressive politics," as well as other Empire State politicos like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Cynthia Nixon echoing that idea.
Carlson said that the conference also gave the impression that the country is made up of two groups of people, "330 million American citizens" and "the 7 billion U.S. citizens who haven't gotten around to moving here yet... but have every right to."
