Fox News long ago established its place in the media as the home of America’s bigots and unabashed hate mongers. It regularly airs stories that are riddled with racist rage, while simultaneously insisting that racism doesn’t exist, and that anyone who disagrees is – that’s right – a racist!

Secure in his position as Fox News’ Senior White Nationalist, Tucker Carlson devotes much of his program to demeaning people of color as “dirty,” and “ignorant,” and as threats to “decent” Americans and to America itself. His promotion of the overtly racist “white replacement theory” is a staple feature of his show.

On the Tuesday night episode of his “White Power Hour,” Carlson unleashed another hateful harangue. This one was aimed at the incoming White House Press Secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, whose foreign sounding name he childishly mocked with a terrible French accent.
Jean-Pierre is a prominent Black American who has succeeded through hard work, intelligence, and integrity. She will become the first out lesbian and Black woman to hold this post. But to Carlson she is “shallow, nasty and partisan,” just like her predecessor, Jen Psaki. Carlson elaborated on his rancid rhetoric (video below) saying that…
“Karine Jean-Pierre is our first out LGBTQ+ White House Press Secretary and that’s all you need to know. It’s a good thing, shut up and celebrate. That’s why she got the job. She’s in the right group and so the Biden administration, which thinks exclusively in terms of groups and never in terms of individuals because individuals are messy and inconvenient, the group is all that matters.
“This is exactly how they pick Supreme Court justices or vice presidents or members of the Federal Reserve Board. […] It’s really simple, show us your picture and we’ll tell you if you’re qualified for the job.”
So Carlson started off maligning LGBTQ+ people, then segued to insulting a trio of Black women: Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, Vice-President Kamala Harris, and Federal Reserve Commissioner Lisa Cook. Does anyone think it’s a coincidence that Carlson’s vitriol is reserved for three distinguished Black women?

Carlson then went on to play a video that in his Confederacy-craving brain exposes Jean-Pierre as a race whiner who isn’t satisfied with the crumbs that Klan cronies like Carlson cast her way:
Jean-Pierre: When [Obama] got elected I think people thought we were in a post-racial America, and we were not. I think what we learned was that racism was very much real, and still very much around. And the obstruction that he saw, the horrible racist rhetoric of having a Black family in the White House, was very clear. You felt the hate and you saw the hate. I just think that America has a big problem with race. And it’s very real.
Carlson (laughing maniacally): Yeah, they keep electing Obama and promoting me, despite the fact that I have no qualifications to do the job.
Carlson has adopted the patently absurd notion that the election of Barack Obama as President was the end of racism in America. He is deliberately ignoring the reality that Obama’s election actually fueled the rise of bigots who crawled out from under their rocks to attack him as a stupid, socialist, Muslim from Kenya who hated white people.
What’s more, Carlson’s condemnation of Jean-Pierre as having “no qualifications to do the job” is another example of his flaming bigotry. Jean-Pierre was the Principal White House Deputy Press Secretary from day one of the Biden administration nearly a year and a half ago. Prior to that she had years of experience as a press spokesperson, media analyst, and university lecturer.
The only thing that Carlson can focus on is that Jean-Pierre is a Black woman who once called Fox News a racist network, a charge for which there is abundant evidence. And the proof of prejudice at Fox could not be better demonstrated than by the bitterly prejudice tirades of Carlson himself.

Tucker Carlson a racist? Color me surprised. His expression is like a dog’s trying to figure out a magic trick.
America is in need of this rightwing thug’s and others’ like him obitutuaries before they get a lot pathetically ignorant people killed.
Last night i was texting my LGBTQ first cousin on my phone and we were talking about high property taxes in our respective counties and he started complaining about his county government being democrats and all people of color. I told him my county has all white government and Rethuglicans and our property taxes have soared to high rates. After i said that, he didn’t text me back. Both me and my grown daughter were baffled why a LGBTQ person would even think about supporting the nasty and corrupt Rethuglicans. My relatives are just as dumb, stupid, gullible, misinformed as all the other dumb fools that vote for those ass hats. I do not associate with them any longer, to hell with them…evidently they keep their ears and eyes on Fox spews too and buy into anything Carlson Tucker says. Tucker is a serious menace to society and needs to be harshly dealt with…
“…which thinks exclusively in terms of groups and never in terms of individuals because individuals are messy and inconvenient…”
Funny, that *ucker Carlson should define himself so perfectly! Too bad he thinks he is defining the Biden Admin. He need only look in his mirror to see the perfect example of what he claims to despise. And he’s right ~ it is despicable ~ guess that’s why he & his people refuse to see that it’s themselves that he describes.
The sheer number of gullible, ignorant, stupid number of people here in the United States is utterly alarming. I just have gotten to the point of just having to live here in the good ole USA, especially here in the Southeastern US. The MAGAT cult is massive here, and i totally despise all of them. If i can’t get into Canada, i just hope i can move to one of the blue states in the New England area. I have HAD it with living in the damn South. I actually like cold weather and snow in the winter, so that wouldn’t bother me one bit. The hostility of people of people in the Southeast has become overwhelming here.
I totally feel for you ~ don’t think I could live in rural S. Georgia you describe! They’d likely run me outta’ State, with my mouth! “Whoo-eee!” Now that’d be a sight to see… Bunch of MAGAts with sharpened farm tools chasing a fat old woman down the road, slinging cuss words back at ’em + any good-size rocks, branches & sharp objects along the roadway! LOL
But seriously ~ I couldn’t stand it there for more than a wk B4 my mouth would get me in a whole lotta’ trouble! Less’n I used my “big city words” that those ‘red hats folks’ would have to look up B4 they’d know how mad they should be at me!
