Tuckems Praises the Unabomber, Says He Has a ‘Cultural Objection’ to Immigration

Fox News propagandist Tucker Carlson on Wednesday invoked the musings of the Unabomber during a discussion with former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang about the challenges that third parties face in electoral politics.

Yang left the Democratic Party on Monday for the “Forward Party,” which he founded to combat the political “duopoly” of the Democratic and Republican Parties.

Yang explained on Fox Nation’s Tucker Carlson Today that the Forward Party is technically a political action committee because you have to “do a bunch of stuff” to be officially recognized as a formal political party.

In response, Tuckems went on a bizarre rant about “systems” and alluded to the writings of Ted Kaczynski – who murdered three people – to make his point.

“Well, sure, I mean, systems – Ted Kaczynski I have to say has written very convincingly on this, the Unabomber, bad person, but a smart analysis I think of the way systems work – and his argument is that large organizations morph into merely self-preservation projects,” said Tuckems. “Like, a big system, in the end, protects itself and that’s kind of all it does. So our two-party system is certainly in that category. There are so many barriers to starting a viable third party. It hasn’t been done.”

Were there no better options?

Tuckems also admitted to Yang that he has a “cultural objection” to immigration.

“The objections that people have to immigration are mostly cultural. We can argue whether those are legitimate or not, I have those reservations, I’ll be honest. But my main reservations are economic, so I don’t hear many attacks on our immigration system from the right from an economic perspective.”
