— Tucker Carlson rallies conservatives at evangelical advocacy event – Caleb McCullough (COMMENT: Far too many candidates who run as Republicans fail or refuse to promise that if elected, they can and they will defend and advance the Republican Party platform’s individual responsibility, traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks. Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can/will defend/advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: DES MOINES — Tucker Carlson implored a crowd of evangelical Christians to be discerning and advocate for traditional and conservative policies as national Republican figures continue to pour into the state testing the waters for the 2024 election. Carlson stuck to his trademark conservative populism when he spoke to a crowd of around 1,800 at the Family Leadership Summit on Friday, skewering both Democratic figures and Republicans like Mitch McConnell for not focusing on the bread-and-butter issues that he said are central to Americans’ lives. When choosing politicians to support, “the first thing you should ask for is candidates who talk about things that matter,” he said. What matters, according to Carlson, is starting a family, preserving tradition, and focusing on domestic rather than global issues.)
