That has to be the most a absurdist evil thing he could possibly say at this moment.

If your only answer to politics is violence then there is no place for you in civil society.

"Why do you make me hit you, Janet?"

Christ, what an asshole.

Tucker says every night: "They are doing this to us."

No matter what "this" is, or who "they" are each day, it's always the same thing, and his viewers nod their heads in agreement and say "He's right."

Tucker opens his mouth, everything that comes out is bullshiat.  Anyone who expects different is an idiot, that's why his audience loves him so.
 
2022-05-17 12:25:28 AM  
How is this any different than what Al Qaeda leaders did with their followers?

Or ISIS?

They all convinced their audience that violence is justified.
 
2022-05-17 2:11:15 AM  
I guess that means left-wing terrorism would be justified against people pushing race-baiting invective / those that justify right-wing terrorism.

You've helped to make a white-right that scares pro family, Christian, and fiscally conservative minorities away from the GQP. And things like having a polling station at the Harley Davidson dealership should count as voter suppression, as minorities associated bikes with the sort of white people who might shoot them for trespassing on a jogging path.

The conservatives *want* violence. They want to hurt people.
That's it. That's their entire ideology now.

This statement is said about him often, but he always finds another low.

He's one white that needs to be replaced.

That's why most people should see him as a propagandist.  Not an 'entertainer' and certainly not a journalist.

His job is to push bullsh*t that's going to get citizens killed for being the wrong skin color, religion, or personal political belief (as long as you're a liberal/Democrat, that is).

Tucker Carlson needs to die a painful, humiliating death. Preferably on camera so I can point and laugh. Of all the festering ass pustules on Fox News, he's the worst.
 
2022-05-17 7:21:16 AM  

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: He's one white that needs to be replaced.


I'm all for replacing anyone who thinks violence is an acceptable way to achieve political goals.

make me some tea: Tucker says every night: "They are doing this to us."

No matter what "this" is, or who "they" are each day, it's always the same thing, and his viewers nod their heads in agreement and say "He's right."


Pretty sure he probably sees Goebbels as someone to not only look up to, but to emulate perfectly.

Most of them are driven by fear, and they're only capable of violence when they feel they are safe in numbers or convince themselves they're cornered.

They don't start by hating immigrants and minorities - they fear them.  They are afraid they'll lose their jobs, they're afraid support programs for 'those people' will take their tax money and leave them poorer.   And while the way it's used in Star Wars is stupid mumbo-jumbo, fear does indeed lead to hatred.

And of course the fear festers in ignorance.  If they actually understood more about the world they'd understand they are fearing the wrong things, and reacting in ways that make their problems worse.  But they don't.
 
2022-05-17 7:24:21 AM  
Every time he speaks I wish BLM or Antifa were as violent as he claims they are.
 
2022-05-17 7:25:39 AM  
"Hate speech is speech we hate." Okay. That's an opinion...NOT A DEFINITION OF HATE SPEECH, which is what Cucker is trying to do in context.

Seriously. This dude is defending HATE SPEECH.

That's giving non-whites votes and representation.

Racists are incensed at being called racists so their on only recourse is violence.

They could, you know, stop being racists.

I really don't know why people here are shocked. Tucker is not the first person to spew this vile rhetoric.  People support this type of ideology through action and inaction, our country (meaning you and I) have allowed this to happen by not addressing systematic race/class issues. If people cared then he and those of this ilk would be vilified like America vilified brash or flashy AA men. Look at who votes for men like him, look who has supported men like him throughout American history, then look in the mirror.

If you look at any "conservative" regime in the history of the world - it's always been about power through violence.

Democrats need to inundate every platform with a simple message:

"Republicans are trying to steal democracy. Don't let them. Vote"

That's it. No explanation. No equivocation. Just a simple, declarative sentence, over and over and over and over.

Republicans have made an industry of othering anyone else. Democrats need to fight back in kind.

"Republicans are trying to steal democracy. Don't let them. Vote."

Guy who pushes "race politics" every day suddenly hates the topic.

I wonder why?

Wow, they've just thrown the dog whistle in the trash at this point and unsurprisingly claim "did you see what Biden did?"

Basically just the standard right wing gaslighting. The right connects their dog whistle to an air compressor, passive aggressively attacking minority groups. When the left proceeds to defend those minority groups, the right then accuses the left of playing partisan racial politics. To counter this, rather than just lash accusations at Tucker no matter how reality based, constantly ask him to clarify, define, and elaborate what he means regarding everything he claims. Eventually he will stumble and the truth will come out. By just hurling allegations, Tucker can circle his wagons and gaslight.

The main difficulty is that Carlson does not put himself into situations where other people are given the opportunity to do that.

Because he supports the violence and murders, duh! Why else would he not lay the blame on the gunman. But rather his victims. Basically his message is "if you complain about racism we have every right to murder you." He's farking deranged and evil.

Sixteen years after the infamous Mississippi Burning civil rights murders, Reagan traveled to the same county (15 miles from the site of where the three men were murdered) to deliver a speech on "states' rights."
