Tucker Carlson went after the city of San Francisco where illegal immigrants are allowed to vote for school board representatives, as well as similar voting laws like Boston and New York City could potentially offer, Thursday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”


“We have watched our leaders hyperventilate about the threat other countries pose to our democracy. Foreign nationals seek to influence our election, they have told us again and again ominously, and by the way they’re right. Some countries do do that. It’s a fair point. But with that in mind, it was a little bit surreal to watch today as Democratic politicians in California encouraged foreign nationals to actually vote in our elections,” Tucker said.

He continued, “It wasn’t treason, they explained. How could it be? Progressives are doing it. It’s a form of civil rights. In San Francisco, citizens of other countries, including illegal aliens, are now allowed to vote for school board. Other offices will not be far behind, you can be sure of that. San Francisco is the biggest city to try this, but the trend is spreading nationwide. In a number of cities in the state of Maryland, for example, foreign citizens can vote in all local elections.”

“There is a push underway in New York City and in Boston to allow the same thing,” Carlson continued. “None of this is treasonous. It’s not a hacking of our democracy, it’s nothing Putin or Donald Trump would do,” he said, adding that a New York City councilman described the new voting laws as “a restoration of rights” and that “non-citizens have been voting in this country longer than they haven’t.

Carlson stated, “Now we’re not going to pretend to understand exactly what that means. We have no idea what it means. We do know the left no longer even pretends to believe in borders or in citizenship. They’ve rejected the notion that America is even a country.”

Carlson added, “It’s an idea, they tell us again and again, though really, you get the sense they think it’s a division of Amazon, staffed by faceless replaceable drones, meaning you, for now, and then your foreign replacement if you don’t work eagerly enough or if you complain. Keep in mind, none of this is a threat to our democracy. It’s the essence of democracy, somehow.”
