Did You See Tucker Mock NBC Reporter Who Said It's Aggressive to Just 'Stand There'?


Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson blasted NBC host Savannah Guthrie for taking the liberal mindset about human behavior to a whole new low.

As just about anyone who’s followed the news for the past week knows by now, Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann was widely attacked by liberals after his confrontation with attention-seeker Nathan Phillips during a confrontation Friday near the Lincoln Memorial in Washington.

What did Sandmann do wrong?

He just stood there — and that’s apparently aggressive to leftists now.

In a “Today” show interview that aired Wednesday, Guthrie informed the high school student  that standing still is “aggressive.”

“There’s something aggressive about standing there, standing your ground,” Guthrie stated.

Carlson perfectly summarized the left’s mindset on Wednesday night’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“There’s something aggressive about standing there. Failing to move is a hostile act. We can’t have people standing still in public places. ‘Get a move on, son.’ That’s what NBC is telling us,” Carlson mocked.

During the confrontation, the high school student stood still, mostly silent, as Phillips beat a drum in his face and chanted.

By just about any standard, Phillips’ behavior was aggressive, but liberals somehow characterized Sandmann as the aggressor even though he was only standing there.

In the eyes of a leftist, you’re being aggressive if you don’t let liberals push you around.

This line of thinking from liberals is dangerous when their affinity for big government is considered.

“George Orwell imagined a world like this 70 years ago in ‘1984’,” Carlson warned before directly quoting Orwell’s dystopian book.

“The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself. To wear an improper expression on your face was itself a punishable offense. There was even a word for it: facecrime.”

Orwell’s description of life in a fictional dystopian dictatorship is eerily similar to the criticism Sandmann received from the left.

Do you agree with Tucker on this?

Sandmann’s only “crime” was standing still with an expression on his face.

Sandmann committed facecrime.

Liberals haven’t tried to implement actual laws against “facecrime” yet, but it’s beginning to seem like a real possibility in the not-too-distant future.

And Tucker Carlson called it out.
