ER Editor: Tucker’s been busy speaking to a Hungarian audience in Hungary no less (see article below) and now plans to interview Putin. See (browsers will translate) —
Tucker is clearly someone‘s preferred spokesman for US foreign policy, designed to build bridges with those countries who seek to shun wokeism/cultural Marxism and the globalist economic paradigm.
We do recommend watching his entertaining informative and straight-to-the-point speech. He carefully dances around Orban’s identity in relation to ‘Russia’. He also unpacks and critiques just about everything our globalized world has become.
Readers might be interested in this article from the European Conservative from April of this year —
Just wait it out…The people who run the US are dangerous and insane… It’s (Hungary) a Christian country and they hate that.
The world is realigning at high speed, and turning against the United States. But the Biden Administration is spending its time harassing one of our last sincere allies in Europe, Hungary, for the crime of being too Christian. Watch.

He also interviews Orban, who gives us a useful perspective on Russia.
‘Call back Trump … his foreign policy was the best one for the world.’

Tucker Carlson flew to Hungary last week, where he gave two powerful speeches – apologizing for the United States’ lack of diplomacy and its “cultural imperialism.”
Carlson started by apologizing on behalf of the United States after US Ambassador David Pressman, a gay activist, lectured the Hungarian government over LGBTQ rights.
“The point of diplomacy is not to hector other nations for its own sake,” said Carlson. “To show up in someone else’s country and scream at them because they’re different from you.”
“I’m not in the habit of apologizing for the United States. In fact, I don’t think I ever have, but the behavior of the American ambassador to Hungary makes me want to apologize,” said Carlson. “It’s disgusting and inexcusable. It’s also so far from the norms of diplomacy in my country that it’s hard for me to believe that David Pressman is actually doing what he’s doing.
“And so for a creep like David Pressman, who is not a diplomat – who’s a political activist and Biden donor – to show up in your country and lecture you about your culture, and threaten you because you do things differently from the way they do things where he lives… hurts the United States and is a grave embarrassment to me as an American, and an outrage to me as someone who pays his salary. It’s disgusting.”
Hungary under Orbán has been tightening laws targeting LGBT propaganda. Currently same-sex couples in Hungary aren’t allowed to adopt children, and changing genders is also illegal. Pressman, meanwhile is a gay human rights lawyer and California-born former aide to former US Secretary of State Madeline Albright. Earlier this year, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto slammed Pressman, saying he was way out of line.
Carlson also criticized America’s ‘cultural imperialism,’ insisting that larger countries have a responsibility not to force their ideologies or lifestyles onto smaller ones, and that this behavior undermines the notion of self-determination.
“That is not the basis of a successful Empire,” he said.
“Everybody wants Freedom everyone understands the concept of self-determination,” said Carlson, adding “Hungary isn’t hassling anybody else; Hungarians have views, your government has views.”
Tucker Carlson went off in Budapest:
“The ruling party is the childless, the unmarried, working for low wages for large corporations and living in tiny apartments in overcrowded cities rife with crime, having food delivered by immigrants, and spending time glued to a screen.” pic.twitter.com/Im62rNPShO

Carlson then warned: “It’s the ones who tell you the 180 degree opposite of the truth who you need to be careful of and they’re the ones who will enslave you.”
He also warned NATO… “The world is resetying completely. The post-war order is collapsing. NATO is going to collapse. NATO cannot stand long term.”

In closing, he recommended reading books.
“The most important thing I ever did other than get married was read books not tweets, not electronic but paper books in traditional form and read them every day,” said Carlson, pondering whether the decline in reading is responsible for the clouding of the world’s collective wisdom.
He then conveyed a message to the West…
“What Hungary is saying to the West is we want to be part of the West… maybe don’t push your garbage on us so aggressively,” he said – in essence, that Hungary doesn’t want to be an island, it wants to participate in Western civilization but without the oppressive force of cultural changes that don’t align with its values.
Watch the entire speech below:
Carlson’s speech echoes some of what he told a crowd in Esztergom, Hungary two years ago, when he told the crowd that the US media landscape lacks objectivity, and discussed the importance of respecting culture, history, and beauty in society. Carlson views these elements as essential for human happiness and effective governance, something he thinks Hungary has managed better than the U.S.
“If you disobey the political orders from the ruling party, they’ll shut you down,” Carlson said (prior to being shut down).
Carlson was particularly struck by Hungary’s stance on migration. “Hungary stood alone essentially in saying you know no thanks, and that struck me as a totally legitimate thing to do,” he said, referring to the Orban’s decision to block migrants from entering the country.
