Interview Tucker Carlson Doesn’t Want You To See Shows ‘How Angry Elites Get’ When Their Corruption Is Challenged
“The vast majority of Americans for years and years now…are in favor of higher taxes on the rich. But no one’s saying that at Davos just as no one’s saying it on Fox News.“
Weeks after footage of him slamming the rich at the World Economic Summit at Davos became one of the most watched online videos of the past year, Dutch historian Rutger Bregman joined Tucker Carlson for a discussion on the subject, only to have the right-wing Fox News host lose his cool in epic fashion when called out for being a “millionaire who works for billionaires,” yelled obscenities at his guest, and pulled the plug on the interview.
Carlson evidently expected a friendly discussion of Bregman’s viral Davos appearance—where the historian had told attendees, “Come on, we’ve got to be talking about taxes…All the rest is bullshit in my opinion.”—but it did not go as planned.
Instead, Carlson became incensed when the historian repeated his “tax the rich” message and began yelling at Bregman. While Carlson and Fox killed the interview, Bregman explained that he decided to share the footage “because I think we should keep talking about the corrupting influence of money in politics. It also shows how angry elites can get if you do that.”

Davos attendees as well as conservative commentators on Fox News—who for years have promoted the work of the billionaire Koch Brothers, railed against and misrepresented proposals for higher taxes on the rich, and worked for conservative think tanks like the Cato Institute—all shoulder blame for fighting to retain a system which has allowed just 26 billionaires to amass as much wealth at 3.8 billion people combined, Bregman argued.
“You’re not part of the solution, Mr. Carlson, you’re part of the problem.” —Rutger Bregman, historian
“You are a millionaire funded by billionaires,” Bregman told Carlson simply, before the host lost his temper, calling the historian a “tiny-brained moron” for pointing out Carlson’s own interest in maintaining the status quo.
“You’re not part of the solution, Mr. Carlson, you’re part of the problem,” Bregman added.
The segment was filmed February 11, but was never aired and went unseen until NowThis News obtained footage and audio of the interview. After the outlet posted it, Bregman then shared it on Twitter.
The video quickly went viral, winning widespread applause:

Did anyone happen to catch any Tucker Carlson on Fox News? Hey Tucker, really, they’re “eating zoo animals in Venezuela” are they? What was it, Tucker, f*cking roast giraffe over an open spit? The Fox Broadcasting Company is an American commercial terrestrial television network that is a flagship property of Fox Corporation, a subsidiary of 21st Century Fox. The channel was created by Australian-American media mogul Rupert Murdoch. Murdoch hired former Republican Party media consultant and CNBC executive Roger Ailes as its founding CEO. As of February 2015, approximately 94,700,000 US households (81.4% of television subscribers) receive Fox News.
Barry Diller was one of the co-founders of Fox News and Diller is Jewish. Tucker Carlson got his start as a print journalist in the 1990s, writing for the magazine The Weekly Standard. The Weekly Standard founding publisher was Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News Corporation. The Weekly Standard ties into powerful Neocon networks starting with think tanks like the American Enterprise Institute and the Ethics and Public Policy Center. Yuval Levin is the vice president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center and Levin was born in Israel. Any policy paper coming out of this think tank will favor Israel as well as promote the falsity of Judaeo-Christian moral tradition on policy. These think tanks in many areas of study have provided false policy papers that favor in many cases Neocon related defense manufacturers and oligarchic interests that benefit from war.
The Daily Caller is a conservative American news and opinion website based in Washington, D.C. It was founded by Tucker Carlson and Neil Patel in 2010. Neil Patel and Tucker Carlson were roommates at Trinity College. Patel served as Scooter Libby’s deputy before becoming chief policy advisor to Vice President Dick Cheney. Scooter Libby who is Jewish was at the nexus of the Neocon network in America who was one of the most powerful people in Washington serving as President George W. Bush’s Chief of Staff. Libby was at one point former attorney for fugitive financier Marc Rich.
Suzanna Scott is an intelligence asset who was appointed as the first female CEO of Fox News. Try doing a search for any significant biographical material on Scott. It is hard to come by. It’s been completely scrubbed from the internet. Scott is influential in promoting Sean Hannity, the Fox News network’s star who has the ear of Donald Trump almost every night. That means an intelligence agency asset influenced by Neocons runs right into the White House connected to Donald Trump. It’s a Neocon conveyor belt right into the White House for extremely influential powerful oligarchs running America.
Donald Trump is part of this same oligarchic control of America. No where could this be demonstrated better than when the FBI’s Andrew McCabe spoke to President Trump in the White House in 2017. Before Trump even knew of the actual circumstances in Venezuela and the results of voting there, while “rambling and spitballing about whatever came to mind”, he glibly stated to McCabe the US should go to war with Venezuela to obtain Venezuela’s oil. Are we to take McCabe’s quote at face value? Considering the US is approaching military intervention in Venezuela the quote looks fairly reliable. Fox News is a front for these same oligarchs to gave you a soft version of what is going on in the world. The news is falsified and contrived to control the narrative these oligarchs want controlled for their own personal financial and economic goals.
Page 136 of McCabe’s new book, recounting a 2017 Oval Office meeting: “Then the president talked about Venezuela. That’s the country we should be going to war with, he said. They have all that oil and they’re right on our back door.” pic.twitter.com/RY39h1dXoc— Aaron Maté (@aaronjmate) February 18, 2019
Where would the right wing Fox News be without taking a swipe at the left wing represented by Bernie Sanders?
Not just Fox News though, CNN as well.
