... at least that's what you'd have to believe if you listened to Tucker's talk at Turning Point USA. While I'm a big fan of Tucker, I only agree with about 85% of what he says and this is in that other 15%.
Tucker's claim is that the ultra wealthy Elites like Z-berg and the people who run Google, Apple, etc. are manipulating the rest of us for their own profits and interests. Well, that's kind of right.
They are certainly manipulating us. The suppression of the Hunter Biden story was a clear attempt to manipulate us and rig the election in favor the Ds. Further, Big Tech and Big Business support for BLM is clear manipulation as well. Dig this funny video from Michael Knowles illustrating how big name companies are spending a lot of cash in support of the BLM / racist leprechaun narrative.
And that's as far as Tucker's accusations go. Unless the Z-man and Tim Cook want to see NYC in ruins, they aren't supporting BLM to advance their own interests, they're doing it, because like almost all of the rest of the Elites, they simply have no clue how anything works. We're, what, 6 months into this thing and the only objective results have been piles of black corpses and boarded up businesses in a dozen or more cities.
If you can explain how that helps Amazon, I'm all ears. Yes, in the short run, wrecked small businesses mean more online shopping, but in the long run, Amazon needs the Deplorables to make money so we can spend it online.
Dittos for national solvency. As much fun as it is to print trillions and hand them out, in the end, that will come to a crashing halt. When the currency crisis arrives, it will be the Zuckerbergs and Cooks of the world that will lose the most, at least in an absolute sense.
Finally, if you've got mountains of gold coins, you still need some place to spend it. Of course, you could go to Molina, TN and spend it at the corner store, but that's not as much fun as making it rain Benjamins on Broadway in NYC.
Here's the NYC the Facebooky manipulation has created.
I'm sorry, Tucker, but I don't see how that benefits the ultra-wealthy. In fact, I would argue that the collapse of NYC, LA and SF hurts them more than it hurts bigoted rednecks like me. The fact that they're not changing their approaches even after months of this tells me something else is at play here.
They have no idea how anything works.
