Fox News has always been right. But the network has taken an even more dramatic turn since Joe Biden was elected. At the head of those charges is Tucker Carlson, who recently alleged that the Trump uprising in January was an FBI false flag operation.
Newsmax likes to present itself as an alternative to Fox. And to keep up, the channel has to be even more extreme than its massive competitor.
Eric Salcedo was trying to do just that Thursday afternoon when he claimed that states are about to "rebel" against Joe Biden. The Newsmax host started:
“Just as the socialist democrats show their hatred of our Constitution, the rule of law and our country, as they show their hatred of our people, an awakening is taking place. It is an awakening that the Biden Press cannot hide. Despite all the efforts of the left media, Americans – blacks, Latinos, whites, and Asians – are beginning to associate their misery with the policies of the socialist democrats that are causing that misery. "
Salcedo continued: "Let's give credit where credit is due. This fundamental change would not take place if Biden were reasonably competent and had the perseverance to oppose the anti-American elements that are politics in his backward government. And because of their extremism, I expect more states to rebel against the lawlessness that harms so many Americans. I say to these Americans: welcome to the rebellion. May God and might be with you. "

Hiring Salcedo is almost as dangerous as it is stupid. Trump supporters in the country rebelled against the government on January 6th. And inciting her to continue is borderline.
