What could possibly account for Carlson’s flip-flop on proper citizenship? On the one hand, he’s encouraging rule-breaking by a white restaurant owner over countermeasures against a pandemic. On the other hand, he’s saying that rule-breaking associated with a movement for black social justice — and perpetrated, according to The Post, by “people of all races” — could end U.S. civilization as we know it. Confused as to how he accommodates these views at the same time in the same brain, we emailed him some questions. If we receive a reply, we will update this post.

In the meantime, we’ll just have to fall back on the most useful thing Tucker Carlson has ever said about Tucker Carlson, from a speech he gave last summer: “The temptation in my politics — and my politics are evolving, although I don’t even have politics, I just have reactions to things, as you can tell.”
