a house. neighbors would take care of us . it was ideal but in i don't see i thought i could recreate thats officially in the nineteen eighties. so when i came back i cai thougo my kids are goin g to be free schoo range. yeah. them in the public schools juslk like i did. alized i'm going to teach them all i w these skills. and then i realized i wasuse, y people thought they were crazyor because you know say your children are going to those schools. you went to stanford but? they're very great kids. they say to me now know, thankuw you because we all our friendser are multiracial and they gotac practical schools. my son was a great forklift driver and he worked once fordr orchard'iver as. e truc i think it was auto supplierk home depot. and their truck came icad nobodn and nobody was there to unloadre it. so he just he wasn't certifiedlc forklift driver, you know, a little costume on everything . so he just jumped on and d on and just unloaded it really quick and they fired him front loading a truck.nd he di >> yes. because he wasdn unauthorized'tv and he didn't havee the authorized kill from thata particular store.ma
and he could he was a masterfus truck drivertruck drivnce he. he'd been doing it since he wasy eight . so he came back to me and he said they got angry at me.really and i said, congratulations, i'm really proud of you. i mean, that's really good. so those skills i , i was very proud that they had thosed and we're very close. i'm very close to my two children. yeah. ughter ti had a daughter that pd away and she was the same way. she was just so practical. and she grew up picking tomatoes. and so we try to recreate that artificially. but i'm not sure it was the same because it was so fun for us . it was hard work, but this is in a bubble. yo the life you describe trying too create does seem like anes ideal . i mean, it soundwoful.s one of r and i was i worry now when i'm six, i said, did i putind of my kids through, you know, kind of an ordeal to prove a point that they could stillian' be agrarianss an and have a faml farm. and then we grew uy p reallypo wort, poor an idea because farming was worth and at
some point i just said tohe myself, they have no healtho insurance. i like to straighten stme their teet i've h. the sy myybste i've got to go back and join the system. so i cleaned u ap my act. and you can't raise your kids poorer than you were. yeah, yeah. e were cso we were called regreg that we were leaving the middles clas as, becoming peasants.i be and then i becamcae a great professor. what we were a politics like at this time, my parents wereo stan my mother had gone to stanford.u shlde was a i guess you call th- pat brown. remember very well jerry rr brown's fatherpat br can do dem for every little town theredertk was. the wealthy guy waerbis the undertaker, the big car dealer. it was this 90% tax rate and there was no mobility and they were all republicans and everybody else was democrats. and thenemocrats so my parents,r seems crazy, but they were very socially and culturally conservative, no drinking state . yogou know, ifa you go to a party, you have to shake their hands. d
you have to look them insay the eye. victor, my mom would pick us up th from did you say thank you to d the host? i said i didn't knowid you get y get back. but they were also in thoseyou o days, you could be democratic,ul democratic was different. but my siblings are all verymuch much more liberal than i am still. yes. i'm the black sheep of the family. interesting. so when yo theu graduate stanfot with this doctorate in classics and decide to go back tode pruning fruit trees, did you have a political ideology at this point? i was conservative from a youngg age.e. i to antoldld my mo my mom i could nt vote for jimmy carter when i was and i liked him.d him, bo but i just couldn't vote fort tt him. f upset aboutbed o that because democrat he was a southern democrat in those days, not quite like shet thought. like thiquite like -s. t prob bulet biggest problem i had was i wrote a book about peoples, about dreams. i thought that it was wrong, that t you gave your product and you work so hard and yete
you had to be vertically integrated and that requiredthad connections with government and capital totally. and i ista r have a populistbut th streak. i always had that that madate id much. trum so when the trump mega thingr -- came along, i was never i mean, was receptive to that.o the idea that we're going to go back and look at theseosers, hardworking people that we've written off as losers, deplorable, trump's trump's people that biden called chumpsf are dregs.ieth and i really identifiedem with them because i've b grown p with them. and so for me, it wasn't so much donald trump the person, d tht it was what he represented. and i couldn't figure why all206 these republican candidates in 2016 didn't say, why are we a giving china all of theslle trae is ambushes? why are we opening our border?th these warsese that i supportedh costiraq war and the but they were not in a cos tt to benefit moral sense, workingr th out for the people that were fighting them.
and so i couldn't understand the never trump movement because i thought everybody wanted to help the middle class and conservatives. but i realized thae thtat t the republican party was one of myat i had grown up with . my father had said t fo me, , i like republicans. you just remember victory.they they hav have a certain class. so they have a certain view of,n you. and had kind oi kind of return , even though i don't dem vote democratic. buocratic, bt i i'm not comforte with very wealthy country club republican .to and that's a stereotype. it's unfair. s i realiztereotype, it's e, but i don't think it's unfair at all. you don't? yeah, well, no don't?.ker: i i grew u gworld sop in that wor. >> i can tell you it's not fair at all. i used to think it is unfair defensively, but now i realizeoa it's completely okay. yeah, it's absolutely true. well, stereotypes are rooted in some truth that they wouldn't off, of course. but did that effect.me so but by the time trump came around, you were an established
famous i mean, i read you for a long time in national review . yeah. i don't know if i was famous, but. well, you're famous among conservative intellectuals. yeah, for sure. yeah.an d you and you're one of my favoe pieces i've ever read on the changes. the central valley. di people knew who you were, who were paying attention. did affect your friendships.r diitd you lose friends over because you were an early adapter or adopter o ir whatever the phrase is ? i didn't know much about donald trump. muci wasn't a supporter of hisn the primaries, but i knew he was going to win.because he wasy i just knew it because he wains saying things that i could not believe. you kng to row, we're going to redo youngstowedn, ohio. and then he came to california to talk to a bunch of farmers. and i said, did he come here? and did he have the straw on the mouth and the caterpillar and didn't know he had this black suit? it was a hundred and five wagrees and he had two queens. and so i said,sn in other words, he wasn't hillary clinton or joe biden put you all in chains or you didn't change, as i
middl said, he's authentic and he's representing the middle class. so i thought he had a very good o chance. but as far as your othertheryeah question, i , yeah, i lost all . those friends. i left national review last this year after twenty years and i think they were happy to nae me leave to an why didn't she leave national review? becaustie there were certain issues that would pop up occasionally i could predict, what the answer was going to be . the covington kids i just sense that before we knew anything, people would come and condemnem them or the access hollywood people at national. >> yes, condemn, because? i think there were certain people in the republican movement or establishmenan movet who felt it's their duty to internally police their own. and that's kind of a virtue signal to the left. a we are just part of your class. we share the same values as you
do and we keep our craziesmpiril and they're not empirical. you saw it on january six . i mean, we all condemn that t buffoonishha riot. but within two weeks, i said to myself, ashley babbitt was shott unarmed and we don't know anything about the policemen. we don't know anything aboutan the report. when a policeman shoots somebody who's unarmed, there's. pictures everywhere. it was no no warning>> tucke, be way.y ar and then they're having officer sic nick lie in state. was but i want to know where the evidence is that he was killed. died of he wasn't killed. stroke o he died of a stroke ore of -- some type of the national review wasn't on that. >> oh, no, no. and then there wasn't armed insurrection. there were no weapons found on the people who were arrested . they're not event even being chd and tried with dispatch. they're sitting in an purgatory . and so these issues, i wouldngeu i would get angry about. and i try to convey that anger, but i think they felt that many i can't say they all, bulot i think a lot of them felt it
was their duty as republican establishmentarians to telsl the world they didn't approve of donald trump's tweets or his his crudity. that was my my message was always. but but it's good for the middle class. yeah.dd magnhe'sle clad he's k kind of n or magnificent seven or high noon. he is a gunslinger. we hire and we're i the townspeople that are impotent. and he came inn with with certan skills and he started to have ss success. and now we and have the luxury , saying we don't like the fact that he has a six gun running, but he's not you know, he has to ride off into the sunset. it started in 1972. an avid young angler with a passion for fishing opened his first tackle shop, his father's liquor store, his goal of fellow anglers and provide great value for over 50 years. johnnie morris's dream has grown to serve conservation and all who love the great outdoors. it's woven in the roots of bass pro shops, friendly, passionate, outfitters, helping

learn how to protect yourself from life threatening blood clots that stop the clot. >> dogs spread the word. t when there's a lot of barking and yelling in the swamp. when we look back with a smokevs from what we're living through right now, victor davis hanson e will be one of those peoplelly a historians look to tppo understand what really happened because he takes the long view view. . he's a wise man.e dyin co his book, the dying citizen, hansen writes that american citizenship as we know it, is vanishing. and that's partly because politicians have used the immigration system tot dilute the meaning of citizenship in order to keep themselves in power. n power.d part oin the second ps our interview, hansen tells us how elite hhiels shield thems from the effects ofe effe their policies, particularly the openct border policiest mean ♪nd what that means fosr the rest of us . >> i'm confident if we would just have legal measured, se
meritocratic and diverse immigration, it would work as i n itt always has with theker: we italians and people. dion you say diverse, what d you mean by that?y thatwe have twenty thousand thirty four thousand from mexico. hav we have some from kenya, we some have some from finland. we have themt get so that we dt get a tribal block where people do not see others that are unlike themselves. so that is one of the big differences in our immigration scheme. presently, it's overwhelminglyu from one region, one language, one ethnicity, whereason before that, you know, across greeced n and frantzce, absolutely. germany, mexico.. ted kennedy in the 1960, he changed the immigration law with family reunification rather tha immigran democratic l . but that was a euphemism forr ch change of demography to benefit the democratic party as the party of, you know, the patron. and these were going to be theat toasantshe and they were going o be indentured and they were going to show their fealty forba
expanded welfare. that's simplistic, but it'sll hp basically what happeneped. i'm confident it's going to change, though. wereg to seereo startinsee th that, weren't we, in twenty ,19, eighteen and nineteen. a gradual ducation and illegal immigration and the powers of assimilation, i think would have kicked in. we saw to see more people from asiaas, but i'm very pessimisti twpeo million scheduled in this fiscal year to come across the border. it's going to be a disaste it'sr. im how will that play out overnk? time, do you think? we'll sure. it won't affect the people who engineered it. they will be . and the bicoastall will enclavew and their knowledge of peoplleeg who speak spanish will be maria the housekeeper, and juan the gardener. and they'll feel good aboutey wl puemselves, but they will never schotheir kids in an integratetd school or entertain orwith p socialize with people from mexico. i caeo mexn see it in palo alto, where i work at stanford. but in.he the long run, we're impacto it's going to the mexican-american lower and middle classes, becauseple r
when you have these people fromm central america, they go ing th the firsey dt thing they do in the class, they'll say, you're a , you don't speak spanish to third generation mexican-american kid, or they'll haveird-gene crime or yu will not have advanced placement courses because you'llvanced have to return to the bilingual paradigm and the people who pay tha pt price for these local communities in california, in the american southwest, that are mostly mexican-american and they're progressing just if i could be reductionists along the trajectory of italian americanst, alons, if i say todu cuomo or giuliani, youom can't tell by the italian name what their affiliation is because holi've assimilated. they were catholics, southern european. they came from sicily. c, southern cand southern italy but basically untilol this way, e upe we gav on assimilation and control borders, they were starting to of ic the patterns of italian american. and you think that's changing?ch absolutely.el i meany. , there's a wide open rever border today.ugh ou it reverberates to our whole
society. so we're telling people you must be vaccinated. i don't want to get inens the science of that. but citizens aresupposed supposs be vaccinated, but not two million people coming across the border unvetted or one hundred thousand refugees are not going to be asked to be vaccinated. but the soldiers who escort them at risk forrisk to their s have to be vaccinated. int, the vaccination is not the point. it's why do we make it harder on a citizen than alonso? just - >>- that's what i am.d the and what is the.n a bu i've noticednc the same and i se it on a bunch of different levels. yeah, but it's alwayh is the sse thing. we make it harder on the citizen than on the person. eric i think it's partly a generic idea that the underdog, the lefte left always wants toon romanticize somebody who's poor and coming here. hereing to heng to hav different roles, sort of like affirmative action for immigrants. but there is a raciae l component to it. i think the left in this and this kennedy wapner's anti race, you have tocist i be racist if you're going to be an anti-racis at. . if we had european poor come in from eastern europe in droves,
i think they would have norn eup tolerance for them. and also, i do there's an ethnic element. th there's so many catalysts for illegaeralysl immigration.eb mexico wants the 60 billion that it shares with centrales w americanith remittances. they want a safety valve, youos know, march across the border, not on mexico city when we're corrupt and we're racist and they are racist. ,compared to the way they treat their indigenous people, then we have a massivel>> tuckey. el. th absolutely. and then we have the la razaen movement that wants to changinhg demography. we have the democratic party flip, california, nevada, coloradoe om calif, i think texs and arizona, they've done mexico. worlhey're a factoo theyr. then we had the corporate world were you know, it really drove down wagesdo. yo.u hire somebody and everybod diff, wellwell, yeah, but you're just it's not that different when you pay somebodyn ca six dollars or eight dollars isr cash versus ten or twelve. but it was different because the hardest workers in the world are people from warhawwhere k. they were desperately poor. work that
and i've never seen people worka that hard, at least the first generation, very hard, very anrd, wonderful people, hard working and exploited d and it w really that was what was ironic about the democratic party. ty,d they destroyed their old union base or the lowe r middle classes of all tribes and racesg becaushte they they bought intoi this open borders ideade. you're old. i mean, you're old enough to remember very well cesarcesa chavez. yes. i grew ur chp with himavez. yes delanoe, i usehod to see yeah. he came to selma, my hometown. all the time, head of the united farm workers, great pickers unioers, gren, famously california grapes because ei a i think it's fair il say, a savage opponent of illegal immigratiolen. the he went down to the borderorce and use force to stop people from coming cross and the word u . if you go back go ba on the literature, i can remember at rallies in lincolnwo park in selma where people would say noulfor th because the
they call them scabs. yeah, they are very.marted and then the teamsters sort of outsmarted them by pressuring both republican and democratic administrations open the border to destroy the farm workers and then chavez got into synanon and a lot of weird things and he kind of went crazy, went crazy at the end.ke yeahr:. why why would this is kind of far afield, but i'm interested. so the americautn labor movemeno led restriction to immigration for a hundred year10s. did restrictionist measure was a product of their lobbying, but then they decide they wantrw to open the borders, which obviously hurts their man. >> they wanted ttho the teamstes union. they wanteeyo get of the unid tf the union into the teamsters and certified established unions. and that was there was an ethnic chauvinism thatmore t united farm workers washa more than a labor union. it was a social cultural, political movement. and the corporate world looked d lo at that and thought thesokede g are, you know, i guess they thought they were communists or social communist.a
so we'rems going to deal with the devil. we know the teamsters. so they backed the teamsters to break the united farm workers. but it wasn't hard to do whenthn the robert f. kennedy health fund was corrupt and chavez's family had a whole octopus tentacles all over the union. and so they kind of self imp imploded. and but the corporate worl butd would rather deal with. the teamsters any day than ufw. and then the wholen thin union f blew up. >> and now most of the labort uo is not unionized. riedreally gains certainly never expected to become a political figure. she dedicate a politicald her wo competitive swimming. and then the ncaa and the university of pennsylvaniae comr allowed a man called leah compe thomas to compete againstet here and to walk to the locker room as she and her teammates wouldn. change. r lifet changed he completely for an episode. tucker carlson herde ofe. gai she spoke to riley gaines about what that was like. the mome listen. abou next, tell us about the moment she learned about leah thomas.
>> we'll be right back . you think the kids are having this much fun? >> i think they're having a blast. you wake up in the morning and one day this hurts. >> one day another hurts. everything hurts. what have i tried in the past? what have i not tried it? nothing works. the pain is still there. you know, the thing about this cream i started putting it on and things started changing from my elbows to my shoulders. if this product worked for me, it can work for you. i mean, i feel energized. so m a 20 year old.ow, >> thank you. australian dream. so many people are overweight. now.

since they were littlebeen de tg toward a goal. >> yeah., makingiv making these massivee comm commitments all of a sudden o into this pretty predictableing, world, this pyramid of swimming. right. moving toward the top is thrown this like completely this curve- ball of a guy who's competing. so when did you first hear about us ? >>t so i first heard about thomas and about november of last year, which is about the middle of our season. so how swimming works is youmee kind of have dolmades ininason novebeginning of the season and in middle of the season, which, like i said, is november ,december ish. one b aligl teams will go to one likei bigger me and this is typically where like the fastest times thus far in the nation are hosted. >> and so you guys all know a each other allt some . you exactly. and so typically you kind of like any sport, i imagineer works. you're better swimmers know ofbr your bette sr swimmers, regardless of what school or what conference you're at. you know, that's just how it works.
you know each other. you competpetee internationally together. you even if you'ree on not t you on the same collegiate team,s th you've probably been on teams together before. if that makes sensift e. and so you do all know each other. and so all oere thf a sudden, of nowhere, there's this article posted that says lia thomas, swimmer of upin post, won forty one two hundred freestyle, which is a very, very fast time1 20is a. had >> - and so this was right after i if you're a swimmer, you would be impressed by that. >> yeah, that's really fast. fod so i being someone who was contending for a national spot, i see thisr in that same eventh i seole this and i'm like, holy moly, that's really fast. son,who is this person? i've never heard of them. t and so i clickhe a on the artice and it says it's a senior swimmer. she's from japan, which is aol historically a swimming school,o . and so i was'm t completelaly ti for a loop.i' and so i'm talking with my coach . i'm like, who is this personhemd fecause i've never heard o them. and this is a really first time
in their senior. so they must have just come out of nowhereno to post the fastest time by a great margin.at and the event that i was hoping to win the national title in.e i and so that was kind of the end of that. i get back to training and stuff, and a couple of days: later, another article was postedli. >> anyone know this? lee thomas? n did you know anyone? like i know it wa--s very much like s least for a couple of days. it was very much like it was peo this person?n. and then another article i is posted that very briefly disclosed. leah thomas was formerly, well, thomas and swam on the men's side for three years. i'eathen back to the other information of the article. and so i'm sitting theree, and and honestly, i was like relieved because i was like, oh, awesome. like, this isn't a threat to mel anymore because they won't be able to swim in some ways's like, great like i'm back in like my top contending spot. perfect. k in mphow much? t plumbe and you're one of the fastest>>y swimmer in the countryea infreet the 200 freestyle.ylucker: yeah. yeah. i mean, your event. in
yeah.your e i think atvent the tim at the e i was about third or fourth ranked in the nation and so and so how fast was his time will lead thomas this time compared to your fastest time. >> at least a second hallefas faster. t was >> wow. yeah.hink and that was a time i think dua they swim in a dorm, which is if, you know, swimming really rare. and so it was kind of just like who ? like how who's this person? i was just like kind of.ound but when i when i found out that leo was formally well, thrl i was honestly thrilled. i was like, okayle, great. s hap soen i would never let this happen to where we have someonew to swim three years as aim male swim with the females at our national championships. onaland so i kind of just went about my my training because i was like, there's this is a good thing. maybe. but turns out two weeks before our national championship sensibly announced, leo will be competing with the females. >> and i was just like mind blow
