I was very much surprised to find that Tucker Carlson, late of Fox News, flew to Romania to interview internet sensation Andrew Tate while Tate was under house arrest for alleged “human trafficking and organized crime charges” posed by the Romanian authorities.

In the two-and-a-half-hour “Tucker on Twitter” interview, it appears Tucker was more interested in Tate’s views on traditional manly virtues and worldview than the “get rich” scheme he markets as “Hustler’s University 2.0” to his vast internet audience along with a healthy dose of lifestyle motivation.

Of course, the 36-year-old Tate (Emory Andrew Tate III) denies the charges and ascribes his legal woes to the “Matrix,” an amorphous shadowy behind-the-scenes world power.

The great thing about Tate is that he drives the progressive communist democrat social warriors crazy as they attempt to brand him as a cigar-smoking, Bugatti-driving, jet-setter misogynist who pushes back strongly against their feminization of men. Of course, they tread carefully as Tate is intersectional, of mixed race (Black Father/White Mother), holds dual citizenship (British and American), and claims he has converted to Islam from Christianity.

The wimpy progressives simper and point to the long-form Tate interview claiming that Tucker is attempting to capitalize on Tate’s ginormous internet following by “JAQing off,” which refers to Tucker’s "just asking questions" routine. And, as to be expected, the same progressives point at Elon Musk and claim he is getting desperate as he tries to monetize Twitter to reverse the loss of billions of dollars in value.

As an entrepreneur chasing big bucks, Tate and his brother Tristian have told numerous stories about their pursuits as they engage in dodgy enterprises.

Bottom line…

There is no doubt that Andrew Tate has become a polarizing internet character, gaining attention for his bold statements, controversial views, unapologetic attitudes, and extravagant lifestyle – and I take no position on his pending legal woes.

However, I do caution those considering signing up for his self-help courses and mentoring programs that claim to help men achieve success, wealth, and confidence.

While Tate argues that his content empowers individuals to use traditional masculine values to take control of their lives and strive for success, the content is the routine bullshit marketed by many other info-sales entrepreneurs, and his affiliate marketing scheme appears to be little more than paying others to generate sales leads. Many of the pitches are disguised as reviews or potential scam-warning alerts.

Thus the warning, avoid the hype, the interviews, and follow the Better Business Bureau’s sage advice; investigate BEFORE you invest.
