The Fox News host has celebrated violence -- and now, we learn, assassination -- further revealing his deep fear of homosexuality and a dangerous streak
Tucker is about as straight as Lombard street
You know I'm quite certain that Carlson's seeming paranoia of people who have a homosexual orientation seems somewhat pathological to me, an expression perhaps of some dreadful fear that legal tolerance of it will somehow negatively impact him. Maybe expose him with some revelation about his own status in that respect. Who knows really? From the time I became aware of this wretched little snit in his once ubiquitous bowties and his pretense of being some kind new age patrician editorial overlord I've entertained a question about Tucker's orientation. I dare say he thinks he's engaging in some Socratic method when he poses a question which he will immediately respond to with some right wing dogma worthy of Josef Goebbels? Whenever I see this kind of vehement conviction against this persecuted minority exercising the right of every citizen, to not be discriminated against because of the way they were born, it reminds of how so many anti-gay demagogues in the past inevitably turn out to be closeted homosexuals, evidently self loathing homosexuals, who likely grew up in an environment full of self absorbed rich psychopaths who often as not engaged in every kind of decadent sexual act behind closed doors including homosexuality, but because of the image they are expected to present within their social circle and the public as well, especially if a celebrity, their first reaction is usually to denounce it.
And you can be sure the image the everyday consumer has of them is ultimately the most important thing because no one could be rich and successful without the approval of the consumers the perception of their fellow oligarchs notwithstanding. Dan White survived his time in Vietnam only to let his revulsion of homosexuality lead him to resigning his position as a Supervisor in the city of San Francisco and becoming a pariah and a defendant with two murder charges. He was not convicted of those murders based on the most specious defense no reasonable person would ever take it seriously. That guilt of knowing he got away with it no doubt was the impetus of him committing suicide five years after his crime. So we should not be surprised in the least as to the attitude of Carlson and someone of his scurrilous ilk. Who doesn't know it has long been an open secret about such Republicans as Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, etc. It is the worse kind of cynicism of people who would disrespect themselves their entire lives for political expediency forever never revealing their true self.
Tucker..... come out.... come out.... where ever you are!!
Boy, talk about needing some of Dave Chappelle's N lessons. White men control the levers of society yet you conflate Carlson's toxic masculinity to men's rights? What boat are you all on? You merely need only look at his fear to know how to combat him. Call him out on his sheer stupidity for masking his inate desire to conceal his obvious lust for another man's touch.
Methinks the lad protests too much. He is never going to "evolve" from a place of utter hate, which sounds a lot like self-loathing to me. Ironic, but typical his hs profile mentions a Christian club. He's not Paul, he's not getting knocked off his horse by a sudden revelation of the offenses he's committed. He's a tawdry purveyor of hatred and should be dealt with as such, starting with his advertisers.
Michael, Great article, but have you considered that Tucker's father was fairly obsessed with the pursuit of transgender fraudster Elizabeth Carmichael? Have you watched THE LADY AND THE DALE? https://www.hbo.com/the-lady-and-the-dale Tucker's father was KABC reporter Dick Carlson. Dick Carlson did 27 reports about Elizabeth Carmichael and the detail of his pursuit of her in these stories is not only well documented in the HBO special, but get a load of this article about Dick Carlson. https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-lady-and-the-dale-reveals-tucker-carlsons-dads-anti-trans-crusade-against-grifter-elizabeth-carmichael You can't tell me that Dick Carlson's pursuit of this story didn't have an impact on Tucker. It could be Tucker is so deeply closeted and curious, the only way he can deal this his father's programming about transgendered people is that he became the notoriously hateful individual we see on Fox "News" every evening.
The people who scream the loudest against LGBTQIA+ may be using anger to avoid dealing with their own homosexuality, bisexuality, or lesbian feelings. An article written by Andrew Stillman at Yahoo! Sports on January 3, 2023, revealed a ninety-six (96) percent search increase in 'pegging,' and two hundred two (202) percent increase for trans women. Stillman also said a lawsuit.org study showed Texas was the most obsessed state with Transgender porn. Just come out of the closet and I guarantee your anger will subside and you maybe, just maybe, become a human being again.
Someone should have a private detective follow him. I think very few of us would be surprised at what they find.
I guess Carlson thinks if he can hate gays enough it will make him straight
In an article about homophobic hate you call LGBT people "qu**rs"! How disgusting and counterproductive.
The resurgence of Fucker (intentional misspelling) Carlson on TV job no. 3 or 4 with FAUX news has a lot to do with regurgitating the alt-right garbage that has been displayed on Social Media and YouTube for 5+ years now.
It may seem like a small point, but the murdered mayor's name is Moscone (not Mascone).
While I dislike Carlson and find him more boring than hateful (though certainly the latter), it might be wise to look into the reasons for his more recent rise to notoriety.
He has embraced the Men's Rights Movement.
While some aspects of the movement can be hateful, they do make some valid points.
Men are 90% of all on the job-deaths.
It is still legal to genitally mutilate baby boys.
Men are dropping out of college.
Men get 63% more jail time for the same first time offense.
There are seven national agencies for the health of women and none for men.
Carlson has embraced this. However, Michael, you have not. Most men on the left, fail to see this issue and will disparage the movement outright. Carlson has, more recently, strongly embraced it (in a way I don't like).
In my opinion, the final divide that must be healed is that between straight and gay men in an embrace of the beauty of masculinity; yet we are not there yet. Boys continue to hear the phrase "toxic masculinity" -- which Carlson has correctly repudiated. (As Obama suggested, Islam is not radical, but individual Muslims could be; and he eschewed the phrase "Radical Islam." Yet, boys continue to hear "Toxic masculinity"). Carlson rides that to notoriety, more than his homophobia or racism.
You, yourself, Michael, wondered why some are not getting the vaccine; and this week, the LA times wondered openly if "Toxic masculinity" was to blame, overlooking, in the process, which TWO of the following four do not exist:
(And let's not get into a discussion on past health care imbalances -- the Atlantic Magazine repudiated that gender argument in 1995.)
So, yes, take on Carlson for his hate. But take a light to why some men are turning to him. He listens to men; not with an ear I like, mind you, but he listens. You don't.
His father, who is featured heavily in the HBO show The Lady and Dale, was the exact same way. I am sure he heard all that crap while he was growing up and just decided to keep the vibes going. Plus he has his "audience."
I saw Clucker on DWTS-doughy, flaccid and physically uninteresting. SWIPE LEFT!
So-called Christians who judge everyone else are completely unChristian in their judgements and prejudices. Christ said we shouldn't judge unless we want to be judged. I'm sure Tucker Carlson has plenty of skeltons in his closet, in addition to his ignorance and bigotry.
