On April 21, 2023, former Fox News host, Tucker Carlson was the keynote speaker at The Heritage Foundation’s 50th anniversary gala.
He used his 36-minute speech to talk about the current political movement that wants to sexually mutilate and abort children as”evil”.
Carlson talked about the growing need for prayer in America and emphasized that the main cultural debates we’re having today – over abortion, transgenderism, and sexual indoctrination for kids – are not normal political topics.
Rather, they’re primarily spiritual fights.
He called some pro-choice arguments ‘evil’, and equated abortion with ‘child sacrifice’.
To Carlson, these matters are nonnegotiable but he also found himself caught up in these ‘fraudulent debates’.
Here is the full video and the abbreviated text below:
Tucker Carlson said:
There is no way to assess, say, the transgender movement with [a political] mindset. Policies papers don’t account for it at all.
You have people who are saying, “I have an idea, let’s castrate the next generation. Let’s sexually mutilate children.”
I’m sorry, that’s not a political debate. What?
That has nothing to do with politics. What’s the outcome we’re desiring here? An androgenous population? Are we arguing for that?
Tucker went on to discuss abortion.
If you say, “I think abortion is always bad” or “Well, I think sometimes it’s necessary,” that’s a debate I’m familiar with. But if you’re telling me that abortion is a positive good?
What are you saying? Well, you’re arguing for child sacrifice … There’s no policy goal entwined with that. No, that’s a theological phenomenon (emphasis added).
Tucker then declared this was a political system of evil by saying;
None of this makes sense in conventional political terms. When people, or crowds of people, or the largest crowd of people at all, which is the federal government, the largest human organization in human history decide that the goal is to destroy things, destruction for its own sake, “Hey, let’s tear it down,” what you’re watching is not a political movement.
‘This is not necessarily just a Christian notion, this is kind of a, I would say, widely agreed-upon understanding of good and evil.
‘Good is characterized by order, calmness, tranquility, peace, whatever you want to call it, lack of conflict, cleanliness. Cleanliness is next to godliness.
‘And evil is characterized by their opposites. Violence, hate, disorder, division, disorganization, and filth.
‘So, if you are all in on the things that produce the latter basket of outcomes, what you’re really advocating for is evil.
‘That’s just true. I’m not calling for religious war. Far from it. I’m merely calling for an acknowledgement of what we’re watching.’
He railed against the ‘herd mentality’ many fell into during ‘George Floyd and COVID’, and people are not ‘trained’ to speak out against the ideas they disagree with.
‘We should stop engaging in these totally fraudulent debates, where we are using the terms that we used in 1991 when I started at [The Heritage Foundation], as if maybe I could just win the debate if I marshaled more facts.
‘I’ve tried. That doesn’t work. And two, maybe we should all take just 10 minutes a day to say a prayer about it. I’m serious. Why not?
‘And I’m saying that to you not as some kind of evangelist, I’m literally saying that to you as an Episcopalian, the Samaritans of our time. I’m coming to you from the most humble and lowly theological position you can. I’m literally an Episcopalian.
‘And even I have concluded it might be worth taking just 10 minutes out of your busy schedule to say a prayer for the future, and I hope you will.’
Soon after Tucker Carlson’s speech, he was fired by the Fox News Corp. without a reason why.
Two days after he was let go from Fox, Tucker Carlson posted a video on Twitter talking about a lack of honest political debate in the media.
He said, “When you step away from the noise for a few days, how nice some people are, and how hilarious some are.”

“The other thing you notice when you take a little time off is how unbelievably stupid most of the debates you see on television are. They’re completely irrelevant. They mean nothing. In five years we won’t even remember we heard them. Trust me, as somebody who participated,” he said.
“Where can you still find Americans saying true things?
There aren’t many places left but there are some and that’s enough. As long as you can hear the words, there is hope. See you soon.”
