I watched a bit of Don Lemon last night, and you could tell that there were some talking heads on there with some skeletons rattling around in their own closets. They were literally trying to soft pedal that shiat. Trying to say it was all in the past, it was ten years ago, etc.

Made me wonder who had skeletons in their own closets.  But I know they were thinking of that movie director that the left likes so much they think he is cool making jokes about raping children, andthat's totes okay by them. because that was long ago, too.

and he SAID he apologized, even if you can never actually find where he did it, so that movie director the left likes is okay..never mind those victims that see him making the abuser the good guy and knowing they get to be the TARGET OF THE JOKE if they ever come forward..

it was all ajoke and long ago and they didn't mean it, you see.

fark that shiat. justifying farking babies.  there is no justification for that ..or for thinking it's FUNNY.
and Tucker talking about raping his own daughter....

THESE THINGS ARE NOT JOKES, PEOPLE!

I have a son and I fear that he'll grow up in a world where hateful, evil things he says well into his 30s and 40s can be held against him when he's an adult. Why must we dig into ancient history to find the crosses upon witch we crucify these men of honor? Whatever happen to free speach even?

The problem with Tucker here specifically is that he does hold others to their past comments (he was going off on something Biden said in 1975), but he refused to be held accountable for his own.

I'm not proud of some things I said and did in my past.  But I'm not afraid of being held to account for them, either.

If you can't chakkenfw someone for what they said when they're 30 and 40, when the hell are we supposed to say "okay now you're responsuble for your words"?

Carlson was a grown-ass man.

And not only that, but he's standing by what he said, which is the same as saying it now.

This.

Live by the derp, die by the derp.

If it's OK for him to bring up comments from decades ago to criticize people over then what's wrong with holding him to his own standard on his own comments from a few years ago?

Of course we all know the answer. It's always OK if you're a Republican.

I am very judgemental where children being raped is concerned. I judge child rapists and those who condone it, hide it, or in any way justify, rationalize, or excuse it very harshly indeed.

and I'm sorry you hate the raped child in me that was speaking earlier so much. I am very sorry to hear that, but she is gone. She is very used to abuse, and has disappeared for a while, since she has taken enough of it and doesn't like it at all. Raped children are not masochists, you see. they just sometimes don't know they need to hide and shut up and that people don't care. That when you get emotional, then people just don't care. They care about logic and science and facts...

but not emotional raped children. Not in this world, anyway. Unless it's a joke. Or someone is getting out of control.  But this isn't the time or the place, right? There never is one. Just times and places for  "jokes" that bullies make.

I heard people on the news last night STILL DEFENDING GUNN.

So he may have been "punished", but there are still plenty to support a pedophile over victims, and abuse the one who speaks about about it, trust me on that one.

Spineless prat. Nothing quite as sad as a person who sells their morals for money - even shiatty, evil morals like those possessed by Tucker Carlson. "Please don't trash my bank account - I can change, I can change!", sings the dancing little weasel...

I was even being a little facetious. He was punished by moving to a less lucrative movie franchise. I'm not sure that's exactly what I've had chosen, but I wouldn't say he should never work again or anything.

But, bad jokes are still a pretty big gulf between him and say, Roy Moore, or Jeffrey Epstein, who are type of person that make me hope hell is real.

We're in full-on neighbor-on neighbor juvenile warfare now. The neighbor pounds, we slam, The neighbor thuds, we smash, they yell, we scream, they blast music, we put our fist through the door. 
Normally, during these juvenile partisan battles, the Dems back off, letting the children have their tantrum. But hey, how about this time, we just keep giving it back, forever? Never stop, never relent, never stop ridiculing and exposing their faults, crimes, travesties, racist ways, bigoted culture and just plain farked bullshiat. No more trying to work it out, let em have it, full-tilt. 
Because they suck as neighbors and it's time to get their goddamned lease yanked.

FTA -  Carlson: I'm on television every weeknight live for an hour. If you want to know what I think, you can watch. Anyone who disagrees with my views is welcome to come on and explain why.

I am ready to start a GoFundMe to pay someone to go on Carlson's show and explicitly disagree with what he got caught saying. Just simply say: "Hi Tucker, I'm here to disagree with your defense of Warren Jeffs. Can you tell me why you support the sexual assault of minors?"

It would be worth it to watch him try to explain his defense of a kiddie diddler.

Carlson's comments embolden the Epsteins of the world and give them philosophical and political cover.

It's sad you don't get that.

Let me put it this way: Trump's ongoing racist rhetoric and support of Nazis: do you not think this has encouraged existing racists and Nazis to become more open and emboldened? Do you not think that some people held these beliefs but were scared to admit them but since Trump is essentially approving of their beliefs, now find it okay to express them? Do you not think that there are people who were slightly racist but now that a ton of republicans are openly racist that they haven't ratcheted up their own racism a notch or twelve?

It's the same thing with raping children. The government gives ICE, Epstein and others a pass, Tucker jokes about it and supports it, catholic priests go unprosecuted, etc etc and that emboldens pedophiles and implies to them that their contemptible and evil impulses are fine.
