Democrats could not believe it.

For decades they got away with telling one giant lie to the American people.

But that all ended when Tucker Carlson sent the left running for their political lives by telling this one truth.

Just around a week ago, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam was enveloped in controversy over his support for legislation that allowed abortionists to kill born alive babies outside the womb.

Americans rightly called this infanticide.

But Governor Northam dug in and defended killing born alive babies by claiming it advanced the freedom of women.

Democrats have sold Americans on the idea that abortion is an issue of “freedom.”

They claim that the government should not get in the way of a woman and her doctor making health care decisions.

But Tucker Carlson took this lie to pieces during a recent broadcast.

“There was a brief window between the moment he publicly endorsed infanticide and the day reporters found a Klan hood on his yearbook page, and on that day Ralph Northam held a press conference to explain why he supports abortion,” Carlson began.

“Freedom,” Carlson continued. “We have heard that word countless times from pro-choice politicians. The argument, of course: abortion is liberation, abortion sets you free. None of that is true. The closer you get the more obviously false it is. At best, abortion is a deeply sad thing. Ask anyone who has had one. So why does our ruling class keep pushing abortion on the country? Well, Ralph Northam just explained it as clearly as anyone has. ‘Abortion leads to economic freedom,’ he said. ‘It brings prosperity.’ Almost everyone in coastal America believes this as a matter of faith.”

Carlson revealed how the left views abortion in very Soviet-style terms – it allows women to better serve the state by “freeing” them up to become taxpaying workers and feed the big government beast.

“In other words, abortion boosts markets,” Carlson explained. “It frees women from the tiresome demands of motherhood and allows them to fulfill their higher duty, which is to corporations. Childless women make more dutiful obedient workers. They can work longer hours. They take less time off. They are loyal to company first. This is all great for GDP. Chelsea Clinton and the rest of the investor class strongly approve of it. Stop breathing and get to work—that’s how they feel.”

Carlson went on to expose the continuing link between the Democrat Party, their policy preferences, and corporate America.

“So this is the real reason our elites so enthusiastically support abortion,” the popular Fox News host finished up. “It doesn’t set you free. It won’t make you happier. But it will make companies more profitable and that’s what matters most to them. Pro-choice means pro-corporate. Whatever else he’s done, Ralph Northam has made that clear.”

Democrats cannot survive a debate about abortion that goes beyond their platitudes.

Northam’s comments made it clear what the party actually stands for – infanticide in the name of big government and corporate profits.

Carlson connected the dots in a chilling monologue and exposed just how depraved the modern left is.
