TV dinner trust find baby La Jolla nazi has the gall to refer to homeless people as parasites?

So, he's saying that the current education and social safety net policies aren't working then? Because the very policies that he supports create just those folks. Congrats, he's so very close to understanding, and yet, so very far.

If you want someone to go after homeless people for being useless you shouldn't choose Tucker "My sole achievement is that I was born to a wealthy and well-connected family" Carlson as your advocate.

A disproportionate number of homeless are seriously mentally ill, many others are addicted to opioids.  Propaganda attacking the homeless is used to justify violence against them, resulting in fatal encounters with police, or murders in prisons by the guards.
I was in SF in October, besides Tenderloin area I didn't see a lot of homeless people.  My cousin constantly complained about homeless in NYC, I didn't notice armies of homeless, just the usual amount.
As usual, Tucker pushes a simple answer to a very complex problem.
For example, in the Bay Area, zoning for single family homes in Berkeley prevents building denser, more affordable housing.  This is also connected to local property taxes and the cost of schools, which are limited by Prop 13 in CA.  These in turn cause a phenomena known as working homeless people who sleep in their cars or old RVs.
So is Tucker hosting a new bum fights show on Fox?
 
2022-01-19 7:27:26 AM  
The homeless have a disproportionate number of veterans. Not sure why Tucker is turning his back on America's servicemen and servicewomen when they need us most. People are homeless for a reason and we need to address that reason. Being homeless isn't a moral failing, it isn't being lazy it is a healthcare issue.

All of a sudden I have a weird desire to be homeless near Tucker Carlson.
 
2022-01-19 7:34:34 AM  
Tucker is being foolish here. We all hate drug-addicted, unvaccinated, unmasked panhandlers on the street. But, we're not allowed to throw them in prison. Putting them into communes like seattle is doing is best we can do as an alternative.

Instead of biatching about them being given houses, conservatives should be cheering this kind of soft institutionalisation.
 
2022-01-19 7:36:12 AM  
I am not agreeing with what Tucker said, but the article doesn't actually offer any counterpoint. At least 50% of the population, by IQ, would read what he wrote and find Tucker's valid.

Sometimes you say useful things. But other times you're just an asshole.

I love the part where he decries LA's dystopian Skid Row, because the first time he's been right about anything. Skid Row is a dystopia.

Of course, it's a dystopia that exists because of people like him. People whose idea of fixing homelessness is "go be homeless somewhere else". Skid Row became LA' s "somewhere else", and LA's city planners actively designed it to keep poor people away from "polite society". But farker Carlson has no idea about that history, and if he did, he certainly wouldn't tell you about it.
 
2022-01-19 7:37:21 AM  
I'm just surprised he isn't advocating for rounding them up and shipping them off in cattle cars to resettlement camps in the East. Yet.
 
2022-01-19 7:38:43 AM  
Tucker Carlson is a meth head buttfarking the dead corpse of American journalism. Call me when he gets to his final solution for homelessness. And the political opposition.

Nah, they just give them a Greyhound ticket to LA instead. Where they end up in Skid Row.
 
2022-01-19 7:39:26 AM  
Tucker's solution is to treat the homeless the same way we treat garbage. Send the refuse that we created to somewhere else so that they can deal with it.
At this point I am just cheering for Russia or China to just nuke this place.

I weep for humanity.

Why? He's complaining because every level of government is doing things to help the homeless.

If you don't like shiatbag Tucker so much go deal with the problem yourself, but leave the rest of us out of it.

He should realize many long-term homeless "parasites" are on the street because of Republican policies shredding the social safety net, especially mental health care.

Fox News viewers are angry about places they've never been and people they'll never see.  And they're angry while continually voting to strip funding for programs that would help alleviate problems like mental illness, drug addiction, and homelessness.
 
2022-01-19 7:52:47 AM  
Tucker Carlson is both condemning the homeless on the streets by dehumanizing them, and condemning the programs geared to get the homeless off the streets and help them.

That is the core of today's right wing grievance politics, they both condemn the problem and the solution; offering no solutions of their own. Condemning the problem and weaponizing it in their culture wars for political gain is how they get voters. Stopping the solutions to the problem guarantees it will be around to blame the libs and exploit politically.
 
2022-01-19 7:53:57 AM  
I'm not sure what he's complaining about. His solution is to tell the homeless to go someplace else. And that is already what most conservative areas are doing: giving them a bus ticket to the nearest liberal city.

Seattlite here. Yes, we do have a homeless problem.  Yes, it costs the city money.

But Tucker can take his Nazi bullshiat and shove it up his ass, if he can get it past his head that's lodged there.

And not a small part of ourproblem is other municipalities doing exactlywhat he said to do: Treat the unfortunate like inhuman garbage and force them to move to places that are more humane.

What Tucker, and inhumane assholes like him, see as failure is actually a humanity gradient.  Until we fix our broken social system where the rich have couch money they can use to go to space but homeless live in encampments in our cities, you can use their presence to determine how much soul a city has.

Homeless-free streets isn't a victory, it's an admission your city values money or appearances over human beings.

you can have homeless free streets if you provide homeless housing.  Like george carlin said, just use golf courses, those are more than useless.

Wait, you mean putting long term mental health care facilities into a death spiral to justify yanking their funding entirely was a bad decision?
 
2022-01-19 8:14:52 AM  
Most of the middle class he is trying to rile up are only a few paychecks away from being homeless themselves and they know it.  This can't possibly backfire on poor Tucker.
 
2022-01-19 8:16:50 AM  

You Are All Sheep: you can have homeless free streets if you provide homeless housing.


Which we are doing (and no, they aren't "luxury" apartments).

There is a concerted effort on the right to smear Seattle any way they can.  It's an extremely successful, and growing liberal enclave with an actual for real Socialist on the city council.

One of the problems with fast growth is housing.  The entire Seattle metro area is incredibly under-housed.  The real solution is to re-zone the vast swathes of single-family housing to allow apartments, but unsurprisingly there is a lot of resistance to this from homeowners who are vested in their current neighborhoods.

So can Seattle "solve" the NW's homelessness crisis by building?  Probably not in the near future.

But it sure is a convenient attack on the city to take a side-product of its amazing success and use it to pretend it's really a failed shiathole.

That keeps adding more and more residents every year.

The ballroom applauded as he took the stage with a flourish, twinkling with the pinprick lights dancing off disco balls celebrating his arrival.

He took to the microphone. "Welcome one and all, welcome to the show." The debutantes and daring gentlemen ceased clapping. "Did you see the poor, supplicating outside? Did you see the weary masses in the streets in our cities, hoping for handouts?"

"Yes!" several men and women shouted from the darkness.

"Have you ever wondered where they came from? Which policies have helped put these men, women, children out in the cold gutters begging for our scraps? It wasn't the government. It wasn't laziness. It was me. I drove them to starvation, I pushed them into camps, I hounded them with police, and I killed them."
 
2022-01-19 8:41:38 AM  
You know, this really speaks to me, as a member of the most oppressed group in this country: middle-aged white men with at least a middle class income. Every day, as I drive my Audi from my gated community to my company's office, stopping only for a cafe grande and croissant at Starbucks, I must pass by a dozen homeless people -bums, crackheads, real dregs of society - and I think, "What I wouldn't give to be that lucky in life." I mean, I bust my ass all season to improve my golf score two strokes, while these burdens on society live the high life! Do you know they don't have to pay a mortgage or HOA dues? It's true!  They even get free meals down at the mission where I one time went with a group of middle-managers at work to pose for a photo - I actually had to serve the homeless soup!  And then the people at the shelter had the nerve to guilt us into giving a donation! That could have been bonus money to us, but nooooo....the company just had to take part in their socialist scheme, depriving me of untold thousands in stock options.  I'm just so frustrated that the homeless have everything so good while we have to suffer. Why won't anyone do anything for us for once?

That's exactly why it won't backfire on him. Thinking that they're one accident or death in the family or company downsize away from sleeping outside is uncomfortable. The easiest thing to do is ignore it. If they support the myth of the lazy homeless, they can convince themselves it can't happen to them. They aren't lazy, therefore it's impossible for them to be homeless. It's the same with folks that score their oxy from a prescription--as long as it comes in a bright orange bottle, they can't be one of *those* people.

Part of me thinks this doesn't tell the whole story.  In the 1970s, most families could expect reasonable wages and good benefits.  My parents were college educated, my father's work paid for all of the orthodontics for me and my sibling.  He got a pension.  The pension alone has paid out a few million to him over the past 25 years of retirement.
One of his coworkers of the same age delayed retirement and the pension was taken away, depriving him of seven figures of compensation.  That has to figure into total compensation losses since the 1980s/1990s for workers.  Even if you were not in a union, the abundant union membership and competition for labor meant everyone benefitted (my father was not in the union at work).
If we factor in the loss of pensions, rising health care, and education costs, my back of the envelope calculations are a loss of 70% of total compensation from 1968 to today, when economic rents are factored in.
Just looking at salaries or hourly wages doesn't tell the whole story.

The success of liberal cities really complicated the work for the propagandists.

I can't count how many FW:FW: emails I get decrying the state of Seattle that my Dad sends me.  They all originate from on his buddies WHO DON'T LIVE IN SEATTLE (but benefit from our tax base), trying to convince me I hate the place I love.

And of course most of them are links to Fox or Sinclair media outlets.

I don't doubt the same is occurring in other liberal cities around the country.
