Tucker Carlson: ‘One Thing Google Can’t Control Is A Live Event’

Must read

Americans’ voices can’t be suppressed in person like they are online, Tucker Carlson told The Federalist in an exclusive interview about the national arena tour he announced Monday morning. The tour so far includes 15 cities, and Carlson’s team says more are in the works.

“For the last year, I’ve been giving a lot of speeches and really enjoying it,” Carlson said in a phone interview from his home while gazing out at the cemetery where his grandmother is buried. “I’ve just been stuck in the studio for the last eight years — more than that, actually — so it feels like such a blessing to get on the road and meeting people.”

When asked if the tour was a way to get around government information gatekeepers, Carlson replied, “Of course! The one thing Google can’t control is a live event.”

Publicly confirmed onstage guests include Kid Rock, Donald Trump Jr., Marjorie Taylor Greene, Roseanne Barr, Vivek Ramaswamy, Russell Brand, Glenn Beck, Alex Jones, Charlie Kirk, Megyn Kelly, Kevin Roberts, and Dan Bongino. A press release says more high-profile guest names will be released by July.

“It’s hard to believe [President Joe] Biden is polling over 40 percent given the destruction he’s wrought. I think that’s attributed to the power of Google,” Carlson said. “The tech companies are doing everything they can to suppress unauthorized information.”

Not only are in-person events impossible for Big Tech to censor, Carlson said, but he also finds himself seeking a more analog life. The longtime news host famously doesn’t have a computer at home and told The Federalist he also has an outhouse. He said he can’t wait to spend more time touching grass and talking to Americans across the country he loves.

For his latest show, Carlson prefers to have guests visit his home and join a meal before or after their interview: “You can find yourself imagining you have a relationship with people you never see, and there’s something about breathing the same air with another person that changes the experience dramatically.” Carlson previously hosted the highest-viewership cable news show ever, on Fox News, and now helms the Tucker Carlson Network (TCN).

“I am very concerned that people will not have access to a diversity of information,” Carlson said when asked about the 2024 presidential election. “I do think that the Biden administration is mindful that, you know, getting to the point of force is very messy, and there are just a lot of armed people in the United States and they’re jumpy. … I don’t think anybody wants to go down that road. I want to think that, but I also think it’s true.”

Overt force isn’t necessary to control voters, however, when the government can control what information voters receive using intermediaries such as Big Tech, Carlson noted.

“I think [the ruling class’s] strong preference is just to control people’s minds and to make it impossible for people to have unauthorized thoughts. AI will play a huge role in that, of course,” Carlson said.

To stampede voters in the direction of Democrats amid Biden’s high negatives and significant public discontent with the country’s direction, Carlson said: “I think it’s pretty likely we’re involved in an actual war with Russia by the end of summer. I think it’s entirely possible there’s a nuclear exchange before then.”

The U.S. government also censors public disagreement with its decisions to keep escalating its proxy war with a nuclear power. The latest U.S. escalation includes Biden sending materiel from U.S. defense stockpiles to Ukraine for striking targets inside Russia.

“If it becomes obvious that Russia itself is being attacked and [Vladimir] Putin is not able to stop it, that puts him in a position to use tactical nukes,” Carlson said. “[U.S. Secretary of State Antony] Blinken, Biden, and the rest of the lunatics in charge have us on the brink of nuclear war, and I don’t think Americans understand that at all.”

The current cities Carlson will tour are Anaheim, California; Colorado Springs, Colorado; Fort Bend, Texas; Fort Worth, Texas; Grand Rapids, Michigan; Greenville, South Carolina; Hershey, Pennsylvania; Jacksonville, Florida; Kansas City, Missouri; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Phoenix, Arizona; Salt Lake City, Utah; Sunrise, Florida; Tulsa, Oklahoma; and Wichita, Kansas.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Ticketmaster on June 14, at 10 a.m. local time.
