Tucker Carlson Stands With Anti-Socialist Demonstrators: A Global Leadership Move

The former Fox News host Tucker Carlson marched with anti-amnesty protesters in Spain, earning him praise from those on the streets and online commentary suggesting that he is essentially a world leader now.

The protests, involving thousands of people and generated outside the national headquarters of the Spanish Socialist Party (PSOE) in Madrid, are in opposition to acting Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez’s plan to grant amnesty to Catalan criminals who sought to secede from Spain.

When asked by a local reporter why he had decided to join the anti-amnesty protests, the Carlson suggested that he wanted to lend visibility to the demonstrations.

“Anybody who would violate your Constitution, potentially use physical violence to end democracy is a tyrant, is a dictator,” he insisted. “And it’s happening in the middle of Europe, so we thought it deserved more coverage than it’s getting.”
