Tucker Carlson sounds like a bigot.  I demand he be called a white nationalist.

What was awful, sad creature.

And Fox's personality sounds like a protected class. So I demand everyone starts calling them "festering racist anal warts".

Maybe we should go back to the old timey "hobo" to differentiate from the temporarily homeless?

As a bonus, it sounds pretty close to a slur, so conservatives can use it with impunity. "Dude, you're such a hobo." Rappers too - they can drop "no hobo" in their songs whenever saying something that could be interpreted as living on the street.

Not every homeless person is a junkie, and not every junkie is homeless.  By all accounts, Don Jr. has a domicile that he calls home where he and other parasites nest in between feedings from their hosts.

"Fox News Journalist" sounds like a respected class.

I suggests we use the term "dook knuckle."

For Tucker, at least.

I'm sure the closest Tucker has ever came to homelessness is spending a week at the Waldorf while his 26 room penthouse underwent a deep cleaning, but sure, let's let HIM define the issue
 
2021-10-20 6:12:19 AM  
Yeah, it would be terrible if people had any sort of sympathy for these folks, when perfectly good millionaires are discriminated against because they had the good fortune to be born into money. Jeebus, lean in harder to being a sh*tty human.

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Yeah, so the one thing you can't do is expel the Nazis.
Not the Republicans -- "Republican" makes it sound like some sort of protected class, or protest. No, they're Nazis.
They're people shooting up horse paste, breaking into cars to support their Lord God Donald Trump, selling themselves to the Koch brothers, trying to pimp out women who won't sleep with them.
They're Nazis, okay? And they're on your kids school lawn, demonstrating against masks, but we can't intervene in that because it has always been that way.
Just lower your expectations, Karen.
In New York City, police have just been ordered to not intervene when they see Republicans shooting up horse paste on the sidewalk or in a park. Can't get in the way. And you shouldn't, because we have always had Republicans in our parks. Ronald Reagan was actually smoking meth on the Boston Common once upon a time.

I'd love to see him walk alone through a homeless shelter or encampment and point to each person and call them a junkie to their face.

I have an owl outside my window.  He is expressing the proper opinion about Tucker "Sucks" Carlson, one that should be universal.

"Hey Mister Hoot Owl.  What do you think about Tucker Carlson?"

"WHO?"

His audience doesn't have school aged children and they don't live in districts with any homeless populations.  But boy are they mad!!!  Golllllll-yyyyyy!

In everything, then, do to others as you would have them do to you. For this is the essence of the Law and the Prophets.
Matthew 7:12

Jesus answered, "A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who both stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half dead. By chance a certain priest was going down that way. When he saw him, he passed by on the other side. In the same way a Levite also, when he came to the place, and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he travelled, came where he was. When he saw him, he was moved with compassion, came to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. He set him on his own animal, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, gave them to the host, and said to him, 'Take care of him. Whatever you spend beyond that, I will repay you when I return.' Now which of these three do you think seemed to be a neighbor to him who fell among the robbers?"
He said, "He who showed mercy on him."
Then Jesus said to him, "Go and do likewise."
-Luke 10:30-37

I figured he'd prefer to call them 'shiatters' because they shiat everywhere without shame or remorse.
 
2021-10-20 6:31:33 AM  
FFS, yes some homeless people are junkies, but painting them all as junkies is like painting all Fox News personalities as inhuman scumbags.

Wait, maybe I'm not making the point I intended to make.

Let me come in again...

With what the crash and subsequent recession did to the economy, coupled with the opioid crisis, you'd think people who didn't manage to fall through the gaping cracks would have sympathy for the many that did. In just over a decade America has greatly increased its homeless population. "There but for the grace of God go I" isn't vindictive enough for today's assholes, though.
 
2021-10-20 6:40:29 AM  
Wait, so he's secretly paying *junkies* to scream "LIBERAL!" at him while they use him as a human urinal?
 
2021-10-20 6:51:19 AM  
I feel like Tucker thinks this is important because he's just checking stuff of the list for "how to be a fascist."
 
2021-10-20 6:54:51 AM  
You have leveled up your privilege to a new high score if you think "homeless" sounds like a protected class.

And protected them from what?  Does he want a hunting season for homeless people?

The day we can use the past tense to describe Tucker Carlson will be a good day.

Tucker Must Be a Christian. You can always tell Christians, because they act, speak, and think in precise opposition to the teachings of Jesus Christ.
 
2021-10-20 7:25:31 AM  
Think Tucker feels the same way for homeless vets too?
 
2021-10-20 7:30:50 AM  
I gave $5 to a homeless person at the grocery store the other day. I had it and it was cold and she looked like she could use it. I'm pretty sure she wasn't "a junkie" because she went into the store to get a cup of coffee instead of running down to her pimp for a hit; but who can say?

Not my business. Whatever gets you through the day.
 
2021-10-20 7:33:38 AM  
Weird to see that Tucker has adopted the word "Karen" into his scorn-laden lexicon.

I mean, isn't his entire audience peopled with Karens?  And if he's not the male version of one, the world makes no sense to me.
 
2021-10-20 7:35:35 AM  
I can see why his mother abandoned him.

I used to help the homeless. then they figured out where I lived and my work schedule and broke in and stole all my stuff. I have reasons for hating them. after always being nice that was how I was repaid,
not a fan. between the piles of garbage and human waste and the stealing my stuff I have a hard time feeling much sympathy. on cold nights I just shrug.

Archie Goodwin says the term "jobless" sounds like a perfect classifier for 'ol Tucker.

I'm pretty sure he's misusing the term too
 
2021-10-20 7:59:46 AM  
You just have to keep in mind that Tucker is losing his audience to networks and shows that are even further to the right than him. The unhinged crazy-person schtick he does is just designed to outrage people and retain his audience. He can be safely ignored.

The right wing has been trying to appropriate Karen lately and apply it to anyone who tells them that they're wrong.

It's the Karens calling the managers Karen.

What a filthy, heartless nightmare of a human being.

I used to say, "Eat the rich." I must amend that with, "...and all those due to inherit."

DIAF, TV dinner boy.

Irony: in a talk making fun of critics of PC, he uses the N-word, thus causing accusations of not being PC.
