Carlson says his group tried to pepper their hosts with questions about their past - and about their friendship with the Obamas. Ayers vigorously denied writing one of the President's books, and also denied babysitting the Obama's daughters, although he had, Carlson reports, acknowledged meeting the first daughters.

"It was totally surreal. It was bizarre," Carlson recalled in a conversation with WMAL's Morning Majority program on Tuesday. .Here are these enemies of capitalism in one of the most opulent settings I've been in in a long time serving us a gourmet meal," he said.

I'm sure a man with a bowtie named Tucker Swanson McNear Carlson is unused to opulent settings.

I also love how he pretends he's shocked that a dinner hosted by a wealthy couple, for which he paid thousands of dollars, would be a "gourmet meal."

It's bad manners to discuss politics at the table of a dinner party.

True for mannered people, but the GOP isn't the party of William F. Buckley anymore.

Very true. Whenever this happens to me after a few good Chiantis and a great three course Italian meal, I always have to figure out whether or not to poison the tiramisu.

"You'd never think that people who raised their hands in solidarity with Che Guevara and screamed 'kill the pigs' would be the ones serving you this unbelievably expensive meal,"

Participation does not negate grievance.

Doesn't this make Carlson a terrorist by association via Republican logic? I mean, I'm OK with that, but knowing these people makes you a terrorist, right? That is what they said back during the 2008 election.

It's true; if he talked nicely to them without screaming anti-communist slogans, he's gone over to their side.

I think this means that Bill Ayers authored Carlon's autobiography.

Holy shiat. Tucker Carlson comes off like such an asshole. As do the guys he brought with him. And so proud of it.

Honestly not what I was expecting.

Tucker Carlson in a Snuggie. Your argument is invalid.

Jesus, the radio interview is even worse.

He mentions Ayers' wife listens to Mike & Mike, and some girl from the radio show says "I resent you for making me think she's slightly cooler".
Don't humanize my villains! It interferes with my hatred! I need my hatred! I need my boogeymen!

The most troubling thing about that is that anyone could possibly like Mike & Mike. That's probably the worst national sports talk radio show in the history of America.

The fact that the wife of the guy who wrote Obama's memoir and forged his birth certificate likes that show makes me want to throw my support behind Romney.

There's nothing cool about listening to "Mike & Mike." When it comes to sports talk and sports news, it is pure pablum. It is three hours of fluff. If you like pablum, that's okay, but it does not make one cool. In fact, if I were at a dinner party, and someone began discussing what she heard on "Mike & Mike," I might actually prefer to switch to politics. At least I can understand why people follow politics, as opposed to following "Mike & Mike."

lol, to be honest, I've never listened to the show. It would probably be an upgrade to most of the local sports talk crap around here, though.

Or his brother, Buckley Swanson Peck Carlson.

I swear to god I wish I was funny enough to make this shiat up.

And that is why you are a douchebag.

And f*ck Tucker's friend Kyle.

What this 'enemies of capitalism' BS? I thought they were trying to stop the Vietnam war?

Carlson sounds totally deranged, just in the article.

Frowns on those naming shenanigans.

I like how he's trying to play it like he's a man of the people.

"Why I've never seen such wealth on display! They had more servants than mumzy would ever hire."

fark off, trust fund boy.

"If I'm being totally blunt, I'm appalled by them," he says.

He's the type of pussy who would say this after having a lovely evening with the couple where they thought that they had found common ground.
 
2012-02-07 02:28:28 PM
Here's a quick tip. If you purchase a dinner for the explicit purpose of being an asshole to your host, you should kill yourself, because you're an insufferable prick with no value to society. If I don't like someone, I'll gladly tell them so, but I'm not going to go to their house, eat their food, drink their booze and then act like a dick.
 
2012-02-07 02:28:48 PM
That is so typical of "conservatives" they are always the douchebags talkingshouting about politics on the golf course or at the bar or at family gatherings.

Scumbag Tucker Carlson: Sits through nice meal by courteous and respectful hosts, calls them commies and talks shiat about them on the radio.
 
2012-02-07 02:30:51 PM
Is Tucker Carlson an enemy of Capitalism?

The fact that he lived for years with the man who ran an anti-capitalist liberal propaganda operation calls into question what sort of perverted anti-american values he has, doesn't it? Why hasn't he disowned these connections?
 
2012-02-07 02:32:08 PM
"They tried their best to be nice," says Carlson, who added, "They didn't want confrontation, but of course, we did."

Tucker Carlson is dick

WhackingDay: He was probably confused and thought he was hanging out with the guys who run Weather Underground (new window)


They should have had digital underground answer the door minus tupac of course. They would have just run away like Benny Hill at the end of each skit. Then they could have had a dinner party with real artists instead of purveyors of hate.
 
2012-02-07 02:39:11 PM
Read the article, all I got was that Tucker had to go all the way back to the 60s to find a Radical left group.

That, and they didn't act like he imagined they would, so he ignored their actions and kept his prejudices intact.

When pressed about their days in the Weather Underground, when members of the self-described communist revolutionary group took part in several bombings, including at both the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol, Carlson says the response was muted.

"'Oh, that was so long ago - it's ancient history! What are you talking about? That's irrelevant - What are you crazy?' It was that kind of thing," he says.


You don't say?

Another thing we can thank Jon Stewart for - making Tucker Carlson completely irrelevant.

mantabulous: Scumbag Tucker Carlson: Sits through nice meal by courteous and respectful hosts, calls them commies and talks shiat about them on the radio.


That's conservatives. A delegation of excessively naive and hopeful types from Occupy Seattle met with a local Tea Party group. The rest of us told them that they were going to come back with daggers in their back. They came back talking about how it was a "productive dialog" and how we really agree more than we disagree and we can find all this common ground. Meanwhile, the Tea Partiers are talking shiat about the people they met "in good faith" and making fun of OS on Facebook.

I agree it was stupid and petty for Carlson to do this, but c'mon, I'm certain that if a leftist blowhard like Moore, Olbermann or Madow did the same thing, half the Fark Libs above decrying him would go on about how it was an "EPIC TROLL, DOODZ."

Well, the important thing is that he imagined that both sides are the same. So, presumably, you should vote Imaginary Republican.

Some Chick: "Not yet."

Dear God. They're so farking partisan that they divide their food into liberal/conservative groups?

Moore pretty much did do this with Charlton Heston. And lots of libby lib libs said it was cheap and classless. A lot like Tucker Carlson.

This.
The market and state has colonized the entire world.
The only thing one can do is fight where they stand, it's not a matter of destroying the prison structure all at once when you're inside it. It's a matter of attacking the structures of the prison you have the most ability to.
