Carlson spoke with Vox leader, Santiago Abascal, about the ongoing protests happening in Spain. Thousands have taken to the streets in protest of Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez’s plan to give amnesty to Catalan separatists in exchange for their political support.
Carlson was seen marching alongside protesters.
“One of the things that Spain has in common with other Western countries that are becoming less democratic is the involvement of George Soros, who is a major player in Spanish politics. Why would George Soros, who is not Spanish, has no connection to Spain that I’m aware of, be involved to the degree he is in Spanish politics?” Carlson asked.
“George Soros is Hungarian,” Abascal said. “Not only is he unloved in Hungary, he’s not well regarded in other countries around the world, because he tries to exert his influence. George Soros was the first person to meet with the President of the Spanish government, Pedro Sánchez, when he was elected. I questioned Pedro Sánchez instead –”
Tucker Carlson, co-founder of the Daily Caller, expressed astonishment upon discovering that Spain’s socialist leader met with George Soros shortly after being elected.
“Wait, George Soros was the first person to meet the newly elected left-wing Spanish president? George Soros?” Carlson inquired, visibly surprised.
“Exactly,” responded Abascal. “This news was published in Spain, and despite government denial, President Sánchez never provided a clear answer when questioned before Parliament. There seems to be an intriguing alliance between the extreme left and global multi-millionaires. It’s a peculiar partnership for a left-wing that has historically been anti-globalization but now aligns with multi-millionaires seeking world dominance.”
Carlson pointed out Soros’s advocacy for mass immigration and questioned Abascal on whether Spaniards support this. Abascal explained that, regardless of political affiliations, the majority of Spaniards oppose mass immigration and prefer immediate deportations. He highlighted the disparity between media and political portrayals of immigration issues in Spain and the actual sentiments of the people.
“Anyone advocating legal and orderly immigration is labeled a xenophobe,” Abascal added.
The conversation also touched on ongoing protests, threats to democracy, and censorship. For the full details, watch the video.
