[Ed. – What on earth happened to Bill Kristol? He was always a lousy prognosticator, but at least he used to be a sane and rational conservative.]
Tucker Carlson fired back at former Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol, who appeared to accuse the host of “rationalizing slavery” in his monologue the previous night.
Carlson recounted how he said the outrage against Confederate monuments is not all about slavery, but also about “discrediting the Founders” and their “beliefs enshrined in law.”
That way, Carlson said, the left can dismiss First and Second Amendment Rights as the product of slaveholders.
Kristol tweeted that Carlson “started by rationalizing Trump, then ended by rationalizing slavery.”
Carlson said he worked for and admired Kristol for several years as a thoughtful, educated man-about-Washington.
“I never would’ve imagined he would write something that nasty about an enemy or even an old friend,” he said.
