“And I’m taking orders from the Murdochs, is that what you’re saying?” Carlson shoots back.

“No, it doesn’t work that directly,” Bregman answers. “But, I mean, you’ve been part of the Cato Institute, right? You’ve been a senior fellow there for years? You’ve been taking their dirty money.”

The conversation would only devolve from there, with Carlson unloading on Bregman and Bregman returning in kind. “[You’re jumping] on the bandwagon of people like Bernie Sanders and AOC,” the historian says in one pointed exchange. “But you’re not part of the solution, Mr. Carlson. You’re part of the problem, actually.”

Listen to the heated exchange below:

*giggles*

"You can't handle the criticism, can you?"

*more giggles*

 


Have at it!

That random Dutch makes some excellent points, amirite?
It's really not rocket science...

Dutch historian?

Political HACK, and I don't mean Tucker.



Last month, the Dutch historian went instantly viral after imploring the world’s financial elite to pay their fair share in taxes during a panel discussion at Davos.

I listened to the whole thing. So Tucker got frustrated at trying to have a debate with an intellectual lightweight and it caused him to lose his cool.

I'm amazed that everybody doesn't get this be fault.

Remember the big kerfuffle about He Who Shall Not Be Named (okay, Alex Jones) being "just an entertainer?"

Duh.

Why does anybody take anybody in the media seriously?

Yeah, it ain't rocket science which is why he is a "historian" and not a very good one. As Tucker pointed out, high tax rates during the 40s, 50s, & 60s did not necessarily mean people paid those rates.

Secondly, the the US economy at that time was pretty much the ONLY economy since WWII destroyed the industrial base of other first world countries so there was a huge broad middle class in the US with high wages as companies didn't have to compete globally for both markets AND labor.
The tax rates by themselves had nothing to do with the booming economy. It would be like claiming that because it rained a lot during that time, raining makes an economy boom without consideration to other factors.

What frustrates conservatives when we try to have a reasoned and logical debate with leftist is that you guys, even supposedly educated academics are so shallow analytically. You can't look beyond the surface of any data and deduce what the data is really saying, nor can you connect dots and see other factors. To make it even worse, you sit there like this smug professor and talk in this condescending manner.

So yeah, I get why Tucker flipped out on this twerp.

Poor leftists don't have the data you'd need to make Eisenhower disappear!

Yeah. I get why you would get that. We're all victims in this scenario.

Wait! Who's the political hack again?
Put up or shut up? He makes a good point here regardless, they don't.


Imploring New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to allow them to contribute to the state’s future in a way that benefits all New Yorkers, four dozen millionaires are demanding that lawmakers pass a “Multi-Millionaires Tax” to raise billions of dollars for education, infrastructure, and other programs for the greater good.

Abigail Disney and Her Fellow Millionaires Demand Higher Taxes

Remember that concept?

I looked up Cato Institute on Wikipedia: Yep, started out as Charles Koch Foundation in 1974. And Tucker Carlson is a Senior Fellow.

I don't watch Tucker Carlson's show but I can remember when Democracy Now went to the 2008 RNC convention in Minnesota. The country was in a major economic crash. The camera crew caught up with Tucker in a hotel, drunk as a skunk smoking a big fat cigar. It showed in a segment about how the upper crust was weathering the crash, cocktail parties and imported cigars.

Speaking of that convention, the opening featured a serious propaganda piece showing how the U.S. must destroy Iran or else. I can't find it on youtube but I still remember it. "If you vote for a Democrat then you will be voting for the destruction of Israel and the U.S. Vote Republican and bomb Iran." (not an exact quote, paraphrase from memory)


Bomb Iran kind of became the de facto Republican slogan.

Wait. What?


"We are no longer advertising on the program," said a spokesperson for Pfizer


Poor Tucker, even Big Viagra backed away slowly last year?

Oh, the Real Life Comedy Gold.
Time to ponder ... err... "funny" little sad ads for the KKK, eh?

Edit: I see it was a state tax now, not federal that the millionaires wanted. Fine, continue to tax NY into oblivion if they want.

Universal Literacy NOW!
If Historians were the only people who could read, then who would read their work?

I like pictures too.
