Dave Rubin returned from his annual month off the grid for an interview with Tucker Carlson on Fox News Wednesday night to discuss how progressives are attempting to take over the federal reserve.
"The Federal Reserve is supposed to be nonpartisan," Carlson said. "Their mandate is defined by laws to ensure two things, stable prices and stable employment. But at beginning of the summer, Democrats in Congress have tried to transform the mission of the Federal Reserve. Now, Sandy Cortez, who literally couldn't balance a checkbook, who's never had a real job, has decided we need to turn the Fed into a vehicle to fight global warming."
"Imagine a world where Sandy Cortez ways an unfed policy or the power grid, but she does," he said.
He quoted the Congresswoman who said "We urge president Biden to re-imagine a federal reserve focused on eliminating climate risk and advancing racial and economic justice."
Carlson continued, "How's that going to end when people with literally no skills whatsoever who can't do anything, who couldn't program a microwave, are in charge of the most complex and significant systems in the country. Go back to the gender studies department. You could really break things."
"So it seems like the least qualified people are grabbing massive amounts of power. I mean, massive amounts," he said to Rubin.
Rubin replied, "For the record, programming a microwave can be a little complex. I've never really understood that. It just doesn't make any sense, like, what's it really doing? But the point is, yes, you weren't completely right. You know, I think, you know this, I just took a month off. I do a month off the grid every August and I get to step away and then try to think about some of these issues at sort of a further level than the day-to-day political fight that we're constantly in."
He continued, "And the truth is... they (progressives) are here to have a government takeover of absolutely everything. There is no institution that AOC and the progressives don't want to take over. There is no governmental structure that they don't want to change or alter or completely destroy. And until the rest of us really realize that fact, and it is a fact until we realize it, everything that we hold dear is now being either dismantled or ready to be put on the chopping block. They will keep coming for these things. They want government control. They want giant, government institutions and government layers to control everything you do, from what you eat to what you think, to where you go, when you can leave your house and down the line."
Carlson pointed out, "But it's all about the group. I mean, these are clearly people who feel powerless and inapt. And only by controlling large groups of faceless people beneath them. Do they feel any satisfaction at all? I mean, they're are only about power, not about competence."
Rubin responded, "Well, they hate the individual, your ability to think for yourself, make decisions for yourself, decide how you want to live, how you want to work, what relationships you want to have, what type of family you want to have, what type of community you want to live in. Those are the biggest threats to people that want top down power. That's why they want everything always to be done federally. That's why they want the federal government to take control. They don't like state's rights. They don't like local rights because they don't like you. They like themselves."
Rubin quipped at Carlson, "They don't like you, you Tucker."
