How bad have things gotten in Democrat-controlled cities like New Orleans, New York City, Detroit, San Francisco, and Chicago? So bad that when you think of those cities, it’s not the good things about them, from culture to industry, beautiful shopping districts to stunning city parks, that come to mind.
Rather, what almost every American thinks of when such blue cities as those are brought up is of the bloodshed, crime, and heartbreak within them, the streams of blood flowing down their streets thanks to crime that would rival the French Revolution in terms of both volume of blood shed and the pointlessness of it all.
While many might avert their eyes and avoid criticizing such places and the little being done to combat crime within them out of fear of being called “racist,” or something, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson went full steam ahead in criticizing the bloodshed of inner-cities and the violence present in Democrat-controlled areas. In fact, Tucker even went so far as to say that the horror of those cities shows that our “civilization is falling apart.”
Tucker made his point right from the top in the strongest most unrepentantly confident of tones and terms, saying:
“Turns out the symptoms of societal decay are universal. They’re not unique to a specific society. You recognize them in any country at any time, now or a thousand years ago, always the same. The men become weak. The leaders get decadent. Law enforcement gets politicized. The currency gets devalued and then things begin to come apart.
Pretty soon, it doesn’t take long, the society can no longer perform its most basic function. The reason we have societies in the first place, which is to protect the weak from the strong. That’s where you have a society. Well, in places like this, it becomes, among many other things, very hard to travel anywhere. You just can’t go where you want to go. With legitimate authority in retreat, roads are not controlled by the police. They’re controlled by armed predators and the armed predators take exactly what they want from travelers because they can.

This is an ancient problem. It used to be called highway robbery, and for most of history, it kept people very close to home. Turns out it still exists, but now it’s called carjacking. Carjacking is the clearest possible sign that your civilization is falling apart and that’s why you find it in places like Somalia and South Africa, places where force, violence and clan loyalty have replaced law and order, places where might makes right. In the city of Johannesburg, for example, a vehicle is hijacked on average once every hour of the day. Now, once that happens, there’s really no coming back from it. Nobody’s going to build anything in the city with endemic carjacking.
Watch him here:
But yet carjackings are plaguing America, with the criminals running rampant across Democrat-controlled cities and states, feeling free to prey on law-abiding citizens as law enforcement either does nothing or, in the case of the FBI, breaks all precedent and raids the home of the former president.
And that was just the opening of his brilliant monologue. Tucker went on to highlight the horrific carnage that results from letting crime run rampant, described how the soft-on-crime policies of Louisiana’s mayor are destroying that city, and commented on how Canada is, ridiculously, confiscating antique guns rather than dealing with its crime problem.
Perhaps funniest and best of all, however, was when Tucker tore Philadelphia’s violin lesson for the “at-risk” youths program to pieces, mocking it for being utterly absurd and saying:
Well, Philadelphia, like New Orleans, sends so-called at-risk youth to violin lessons through something called the Philadelphia Arts and Education Partnership. So, the idea is, after a month of violin lessons, these young criminals, people who’ve been busted committing crimes, get the records expunged. That was the plan that Philadelphia’s D.A. put into place last year.
Has it worked? Well, sad to tell you that despite the violin lessons, crime has gone up among young people, carjackings in particular. As Philadelphia’s police commissioner, Danielle Outlaw, put it, “I don’t want to say it’s surprising, but it’s definitely concerning.” Really? Well, it’s not surprising to us, but it is for sure an understatement. From 2020 to 2021, there’s been a 108% increase in carjackings in Philadelphia.
Our civilization is under attack from those weak men that have not what it takes to maintain civilized society. Instead of soaring to greater heights, we’re crumbling under the weight of leftism-induced crime.
