Who is Tucker Carlson?
I try not to listen to this piece of sh*t, but so many people do listen to him that he can't be ignored.
So I thought I would slap together a quick essay as a reminder of what human garbage he really is.
After college, [Carlson] tried and failed to persuade the CIA to employ him; the real-life agency, unlike its fictional counterparts, prefers not to hire young men who are gabby and insubordinate.
In another instance, the conversation on the show centered on Fox chair Rupert Murdoch’s decision to pull ultraconservative host Sean Hannity from broadcasting at a Cincinnati tea party rally in 2010. “I’m 100 percent [Murdoch’s] bitch,” Carlson said. “Whatever Mr. Murdoch says, I do. … I would be honored if he would cane me the way I cane my workers, my servants.”
But his biggest crime of all is that he's a total phony, he knows he's a total phony, and he knows that his mission is to protect the wealthy ruling elites.
He's racist, sexist and xenophobic. But since liberals already talk endlessly about that I'm going to just skip over it, not so much because it's already covered, but because I think his racism, sexism, and xenophobia are just tools he uses to protect the ruling elites.
Fact #1) Tucker was born into wealth
Fact #2) Tucker went to a prestigious boarding school in Rhode Island
Fact #3) Tucker dated the daughter of the then-headmaster, who had to pulled some strings on his behalf to get him into Trinity College
To be fair, Tucker is smart enough to realize that he's gotten to where he is because of the immense wealth of his family. So he's going to protect it.
On the other, that leaves him as an almost cartoonishly cynical, amoral character.
When asked on “Bubba the Love Sponge” in 2008 how he pays his bills, Carlson replied that he’s “extraordinarily loaded” just from “inheritance from my number of trust funds.”
In a 2009 radio segment, Carlson joked about growing up in a castle, saying that one thing you learn when you “look out across the moat every day at the hungry peasants in the village” is that “you don’t wanna stoke envy among the proletariat.”
“But see, I’m an out-of-the-closet elitist,” Carlson said in a 2008 segment. “I don’t run around pretending to be a man of the people; I’m absolutely not a man of the people, at all.”
However the most damning statement about Tucker comes from his own lips.
