“If you say, like, ‘What actually happened with building 7? Like that is weird, right? It doesn’t—like, what is that?’… If you were to say something like that on television, they’d flip out. They would flip out. So you’d, like, lose your job over that.
It’s an attack on my country. Can I ask? I don’t really understand. Do buildings actually collapse? No, they—maybe they do. I don’t know. But, like, why can’t I ask questions about that?”
What this proves is not that Carlson is particularly insightful – it doesn't take an engineering genius to figure out that buildings don't typically collapse at freefall speed neatly into their own footprints – but it does show that he's brave, and now he doesn't give a flying fuck about respectability politics.
This signals, in my view, the birth of an entity I have branded Dark Carlson.
