As part of the more cultured layer of the bourgeoisie’s official “conservative section” (as opposed to “liberal”, even though they are all conservative and reactionary, superficial differences depending on the issues and the misdirection necessary according to their pre-assigned roles)—Fox News host Tucker Carlson is now, consistent with his media platform’s reactionary political posture, sputtering a great deal of vitriol at the (to him) apparently outrageous notion of “defunding the police”.

Racism Today: Intervu w. Chairman Fred Hampton, Jr., the Black Panther Pantha Cubs & their revolution for self-determination
JEFF J. BROWN—Few interviews over the years have touched me the way this one has, with Chairman Fred Hampton, Jr. … William Blake wrote about the doors of perception.
