Actor Rainn Wilson of “The Office” fame issued a tweet on Thursday declaring that he agreed with nearly everything Tucker Carlson had said in a Wednesday video.
“I never thought I’d say it but I agree with @TuckerCarlson on almost everything he’s saying here,” Wilson tweeted, linking to an article about the video.
Fox News Media issued a press release on Monday claiming that Carlson and the network had “agreed to part ways,” though the Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed people, has reported that Carlson learned he was being let go around 10 minutes before Fox announced the news.
Carlson posted a video to Twitter on Wednesday evening. In that video, which racked up more than 19 million views in less than 24 hours, Carlson said that most debates on TV are “unbelievably stupid” while important issues are virtually not discussed.
The two political parties and their donors have arrived at “consensus on what benefits them,” Carlson claimed, adding that “they actively collude to shut down any conversation about it.”
“Our current orthodoxies won’t last. They’re braindead. Nobody actually believes them. Hardly anyone’s life is improved by them. This moment is too inherently ridiculous to continue. And so it won’t,” Carlson said.
“When honest people say what’s true … they become powerful,” Carlson said, adding that “liars” attempting to “silence them” get “weaker.”
“True things prevail,” he said.
So far the video has amassed more than 22 million views.
Wilson, who has noted that he is not a Christian, has called out Hollywood for “anti-Christian bias.”
“I do think there is an anti-Christian bias in Hollywood. As soon as the David character in ‘The Last of Us’ started reading from the Bible I knew that he was going to be a horrific villain. Could there be a Bible-reading preacher on a show who is actually loving and kind?” he tweeted last month.
“Of course it’s true that the evangelical/political coalition is doing a great deal of damage to our country. Banning books – banning freedoms – denying inconvenient science, taking a grotesque anti-LGBTQ+ platform,” he wrote in another tweet. “But most Christians that I know are kind, accepting and loving and seeking to make the world a better place. They should also be honored in the media,” he added.
