Video: Fed-Up Tucker Calls AOC ‘Nasty,’ ‘Moron’ After Seeing Video of How She Treated Members of the Tea Party

Tucker Carlson evidently wasn’t a big fan of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s town hall meeting Friday on MSNBC.
Granted, the event generated plenty of hilarious moments, from Chris Hayes’ ultra-serious demeanor to Ocasio-Cortez’s now-infamous claim that the 22nd Amendment, limiting presidents to two terms or 10 years in the White House, was passed to get a dead president (FDR) out of office. However, the one thing that seemed to strike Carlson was her treatment of the tea party.
“We’re actually talking about something substantive,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed of her movement. “We’re not calling anyone names.”
And then, without missing a beat: “People say ‘tea party of the left.’ And I find this phrase very interesting, this phrasing very interesting, because the grounding of the tea party was xenophobia, the underpinnings of white supremacy.”
That gave Carlson his opening.
“Yeah, stop with the name-calling, you racist white supremacist xenophobe!” Carlson said, mocking Ocasio-Cortez on his Monday night show on Fox News.
“So it’s official: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a moron. And nasty. And more self-righteous than any televangelist that ever preached a sermon on cable access.
“She’s not impressive. She’s awful.”
Carlson also had criticism for the town hall host Hayes, who he said, “is what every man would be if feminists ever achieved absolute power in this country: Apologetic, bespectacled and deeply, deeply concerned about global warming and the patriarchal systems that cause it.”
Whether or not you buy the particulars of the description, Hayes’ talk about the Green New Deal — and the fact that he said that the way “to avoid the most catastrophic effects of climate change is to cut emissions in half in 12 years” — clearly set the tone for a town hall where criticism of the Green New Deal was muted when it even existed.
“All we have to do is obey her and be very, very good people,” Carlson said of Hayes’ fawning tone.
But then, the whole town hall reeked of liberal tactics when it comes to any issue.
You have Hayes — incredibly serious, brow furrowed, telling us that we have to make profoundly drastic changes to our lifestyle or we’re all doomed. He almost sounds like he believes this piffle, which is an impressive feat.
And then there was Ocasio-Cortez, who was given carte blanche from Hayes and only token opposition from a former Republican representative and climate change skeptic.
What did we get? Unalloyed fear.
She’s the savior on the white horse and anyone who opposes her is sentencing us all to the horrors of climate change. The people of the tea party were xenophobes and white supremacists. Liberals talk about how they’re not about insults and, just seconds later, launch into reprehensible insults.
This isn’t just Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, although it’s clear that she’s one of the most visible examples of this sort of hypocrisy. It’s a nastiness that has infected virtually every corner of the left, which is now convinced those who don’t subscribe to their tenets are patriarchal bigots.
This is the left in 2019. Woe unto anyone who wishes liberals controls the agenda in Washington again.
And Tucker Carlson nailed it.
