Democratic Truth-Teller on Fox News Righteously Rails on Republicans as the ‘Party of Hate’

If there is one thing that Fox News is good at, it’s managing their platform to make certain that only the most categorically conservative, ultra-MAGA propaganda actually makes it on the air. They do this by front-loading their bookings with reliably right-wing guests and cutting off the commentaries of their occasional lefties.

Fox News, Bullshit Factory

However, every now and then they let their guard down and some inconvenient truths slip through their anti-reality radar. This rare occurrence took place on Thursday morning’s episode of the “Faulkner Focus” during a segment in which some recent political remarks by Elon Musk were discussed. Musk has been in the news lately as a result of his bid to acquire Twitter, which is rapidly going downhill.

RELATED: Elon Musk’s Bid for Twitter is in Big Trouble, and So is Trump’s TRUTH Social

In addition to making profoundly idiotic comments that put his Twitter bid and other businesses at risk, Musk thought this would be a good time to expose his political ignorance, dishonesty, and biases. So he tweeted that…

“In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party. But they have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican.”

Comparing that comment to reality, we find that Musk actually donated heavily to Republicans. And notice the dates on these donations – January 4-8, 2021 – just before and after Donald Trump’s insurrection at the Capitol.

What’s more, Musk’s assertion that the Democrats “have become the party of division & hate” is utterly without foundation, and contrasts with all the available facts. Democrats are still the party that gave us healthcare, provides food and other necessities for the poor and middle class, protects the environment, fights for women and minorities, and defends democracy in the U.S. and around the world.

It is those principles that were featured in the brief remarks of Kristal Knight, a Democratic pundit who appeared on “The Faulkner Focus” on Fox News Thursday (video below). Responding to the wingnuts on the program, Knight said that…

“I think it’s very interesting that Elon Musk thinks that the Democratic Party is the party of hate when the Republican Party produced a failed insurrection on January 6th. This is also the party that supported the ‘Big Lie.’ We also see that Gregg Locke down in Tennessee has been preaching anti-Democratic rhetoric in the name of religion because he doesn’t like Democrats. We also have to remember the ‘great replacement’ theory, that has been spewed on this network alone – and the Buffalo shooter referenced it – these are all remnants of the Republican Party. That’s the party of hate.

So in about one minute Knight nailed some of the most flagrant flaws of the Republican Party. She even managed to slip in the fact that Fox News – via their Senior White Nationalist, Tucker Carlson – has been America’s most prominent proponent of the “white replacement theory” that incited the mass shooting in Buffalo.

RELATED: White Replacement Theory Huckster Tucker Carlson Now Says He’s ‘Not Sure Exactly What It Is’

It’s unusual, and somewhat astonishing, that Knight managed to get through her commentary without being interrupted and cut off. Host Harris Faulkner and her other guest, conservative Charlie Hurt, must have been napping on the job, But they still wound up dismissing Knight’s criticisms and even condemned her for politicizing a massacre that was unambiguously political in its motivation and execution. Which is what they always do when they have no substantive response to the unvarnished truth – especially about themselves.

White Replacement Theory Huckster Tucker Carlson Now Says He’s ‘Not Sure Exactly What It Is’

The professional purveyors of right-wing rubbish at Fox News have an astonishing capacity for head-smacking hypocrisy. They aren’t the least bit hesitant to flagrantly contradict themselves – sometimes in mid-sentence – whenever doing so helps them to advance whatever new fallacy they are flaunting.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Klan

Topping the list of these deliberate deceivers is Tucker Carlson. For years he has been in a persistent rage over the “white replacement theory,” a blatantly racist concept peddled by hate mongers and bigots who accuse Democrats of “importing” immigrants into the United States in order to dilute the voting power of white citizens. Most recently it’s been in the news because it fueled the horrific mass shooting in Buffalo, New York, by an adherent to the theory.

RELATED: Donald Trump Jr Defends the Buffalo Shooter’s Racist Creed – as Seen Daily on Fox News

On Monday night, despite his long established status as Fox’s chief champion of the white replacement theory, Carlson had the gall to disgorge a monologue distancing himself from the doctrine for which he has been the most prominent proponent (video below). He babbled that…

“You’ve heard a lot about the “great replacement theory” recently, everywhere in the last few days, and we’re still not sure exactly what it is.”

WHAT? Suddenly Carlson wants his viewers to believe that he has no idea what the white replacement theory is. Never mind that a recent New York Times investigation found that he has promoted it more than 400 times on his program. Without knowing what it is? Here are a few examples…

In a classic feat of gaslighting, Carlson went on to spin furiously an alternative reality wherein he asserted that it was Democrats who proffered the repugnant theory…

“Here’s what we do know for a fact: There’s a strong political component to the Democratic Party’s immigration theory. We’re not guessing this. We know this, and we know it because they have said so. They said it again, and again, and again. They’ve written books on it, and monograms, and magazine articles. They’ve bragged about it endlessly, and talk about it on cable news constantly. And they say it, out loud, ‘we are doing this because it helps us to win elections.'”

Of course, none of what Carlson is ranting about is “know[n] for a fact.” To the contrary, he’s making all of it up. And he used some badly mangled and out of context video to back up his lies. Among the clips he played was one of President Biden saying…

“Folks like me, who are Caucasian, of European descent, for the first time in 2017 will be an absolute minority in the United States of America. Absolute minority. Fewer than 50% of the people in America, from then on will be White, European stock. That’s not a bad thing. That’s a source of our strength.”

Carlson is purposefully misinterpreting the commentaries in the video clips. What they are describing is the demographic reality that the share of the population of certain minorities groups in the U.S. is growing at a faster rate than that of the White population. That growth is coming from the families of Black and Brown citizens whose birthrates are higher than Whites. It has nothing whatsoever to do with immigration. And it isn’t a plot being executed by Democrats. It’s just an observation of publicly available census data, and reasonable projections made therefrom.

More to the point, Carlson’s theory that accuses Democrats of deliberately bringing undocumented immigrants into the U.S. in order to overwhelm White voters doesn’t even make sense. For one thing, such immigrants wouldn’t be able to vote for many years, if ever.

RELATED: On Fox News Tucker Carlson Drops His Sickest White Supremacy Conspiracy Theory Yet

So Carlson’s entire premise rests on his rancid racism and his shameless dishonesty. Add to that his ignorance to which he is now admitting. However, Carlson’s claim that he doesn’t know what the white replacement theory is is hard to take seriously after he’s sermonized about it so often. But then again, Fox News won a defamation lawsuit by arguing that “no reasonable person” would take Carlson seriously. The only problem with that is that are so many people watching his show who are utterly devoid of reason.

Donald Trump Jr Defends the Buffalo Shooter’s Racist Creed – as Seen Daily on Fox News

This week the nation suffered yet another mass shooting that took the lives of ten innocent people. The frequency of these tragedies are unique to the United States, where guns are far too easily accessible and right-wing politicians refuse to do anything about it.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump Jr

In Buffalo, New York, the latest shooting was the work of an avowed white supremacist who detailed his hateful intentions in a manifesto that was posted online. There was no ambiguity about the killer’s motivations. “This was pure evil,” Erie County Sheriff John Garcia said. “It was a straight-up racially motivated hate crime from somebody outside of our community.” As reported by NBC News

“A manifesto apparently written by the suspect in a mass shooting at a Buffalo supermarket that killed 10 laid out specific plans to attack Black people and repeatedly cited the ‘Great Replacement’ Theory, the false idea that a cabal is attempting to replace white Americans with non-white people through immigration, interracial marriage and eventually violence.”

In his manifesto the shooter says that he was “radicalized” online. He mentions online havens of bigotry such as 4chan and the Nazi website, Stormfront. But the foul philosophy that he espoused has also been broadcast on a regular basis by Tucker Carlson and others on Fox News.

RELATED: On Fox News Tucker Carlson Drops His Sickest White Supremacy Conspiracy Theory Yet

Carlson was not the least bit shy about his adherence to the noxious notions that comprise the racist theory. He advocated it proudly and explicitly saying…

“I know that the left and all the little gatekeepers on Twitter become literally hysterical if you use the term “replacement,” if you suggest that the Democratic Party is trying to replace the current electorate, the voters now casting ballots, with new people, more obedient voters from the Third World. But they become hysterical because that’s what’s happening actually.”

Even worse, Carlson’s rhetoric overtly suggested resorting to violence as a means of crushing the future of diversity that he feared…

“If you change the population, you dilute the political power of the people who live there. So every time they import a new voter, I become disenfranchised as a current voter. […] Why should I sit back and take that?”

So no one should be surprised that many people have recognized the resemblance of the shooter’s manifesto to the loathsome positions taken by numerous Fox News hosts. It’s impossible to pretend that the similarities don’t exist. Well, unless you’re Donald Trump Jr, who sought to absolve Fox News of any culpability in tweet responding to former Clinton Press Secretary, Joe Lockhart, who aptly observed the obvious…

The Trump spawn’s absolution of Fox News hinges on the flimsy assertion that “The killer attacks Fox News in his manifesto.” So what? Daddy Trump long ago abandoned Fox News, along with his glassy-eyed cult disciples. He declared the network “unwatchable” and laughably accused it of being aligned with the “radical left Democrats.”

What’s more, the shooter’s remarks about Fox News in his manifesto are entirely irrelevant to whether he supports Carlson’s views. He simply posted a blatantly anti-Semitic graphic that falsely labeled dozens of Fox hosts as being Jewish, and therefore, complicit with some global conspiracy to rule the world. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t also a fan of Carlson, with whom he agrees on most issues.

Criticizing the network about one thing doesn’t mean he spurns those who are clearly on his side. Despite his harsh words, Daddy Trump still engages with Carlson, Sean Hannity, and other Fox shills.

RELATED: Matt Gaetz Embraces Tucker Carlson’s Vulgar and Racist ‘Great Replacement Theory’ Rant

Last year the Daily Show put together a video that reveals the similarities between Carlson’s commentaries and the manifestos of two white supremacist mass shooters. Now, sadly, they need to update this with the Buffalo shooter’s manifesto.

UPDATE: If further evidence that Trump and his followers are domestic terrorists is necessary, this is video of Ted Nugent at a Trump rally in Austin, Texas, Saturday night (after the shooting) saying “I love you, but I would love you more if you went out and just went berserk on the skulls of the Democrats and the Marxists and the communists.” That’s Trump’s rally! He hasn’t renounced it. This is a rally where he charged up to $4,995 to attend.

Trump’s Spokeswoman Keeps Committing the Same Violations on Twitter that Got Trump Banned

On January 8, 2020 – two days after the deadly, Trump-incited insurrection on Capitol Hill – Twitter finally made the responsible decision with regard to Donald Trump’s rancid and reckless rhetoric, saying that “we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.” And with that the Internet was immediately improved by a whopping 73%.

Donald Trump, Twitter

However, Trump’s decadent and dangerous voice was still heard regularly thanks to his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill, Liz Harrington. Despite repeated calls for Twitter to comply with their own terms of service, Harrington has inexplicably been allowed to act as Trump’s ventriloquist dummy, dispensing his lies and hatred. And her Trumpified tweets continue to pose real threats to America’s political stability and civil tranquility.

For the past couple of weeks Harrington has been promoting the crocumentary, “2,000 Mules,” produced by convicted election fraudster, Dinesh D’Souza (who Trump pardoned), and the disreputable hacks at “True the Vote.” The film falsely alleges that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” and “stolen” from Donald Trump. In fact, the film is a hodgepodge of unsupported innuendo and grossly distorted misinterpretations of data. It is rife with the sort of depraved diatribes that incited the storming of Congress on January 6, 2021. And in support of this farce, Harrington baselessly accuses Democrats of committing crimes and trying to “destroy” America.

The movie has been debunked by credible experts as a scam that is devoid of factual basis and worse, is deliberately deceptive. It is “based on faulty assumptions, anonymous accounts and improper analysis of cellphone location data.” It has even been repudiated by “news” outlets that are generally friendly to Trump and his brand of dishonesty. For instance, D’Souza himself has blasted Fox News, whining that “Tucker Carlson and his team specifically instructed Catherine Engelbrecht of True the Vote NOT to mention the movie.”

RELATED: Tucker Carlson Hysterically Hypes Bogus Election ‘Fraud’ Film By Convicted Election Fraudster

D’Souza also complained about the Trump-fluffing Newsmax network, saying “BTW @newsmax is also blocking coverage of ‘2000 Mules.'”

Even the One America News Network recently had to walk back their incessant election fraud ranting as part of their settlement of a lawsuit by two election workers that they defamed. Which may explain why the other bootlicking Trump nets are avoiding this movie. They are already being sued for billions of dollars for lying about election fraud

See Dominion sued Fox News for $1.6 billion, and Smartmatic sued Fox News for $2.7 billion, and Newsmax and OAN added to lawsuit.

The scam that D’Souza is perpetrating was apparent in the way the movie premiered. He charged online viewers $20.00 each to watch it remotely. If you believe his claim that 80,000 people watched, that would be a $1.6 million dollar haul. And that doesn’t include the $499.00 charged to in-person guests at the Las Vegas and Mar-a-Lago premieres.

This film contributes to the madness and hostility that Trump seeks to inspire from his glassy-eyed cult followers. Harrington’s promotion of it is just another example of her role in provoking more violence. And the fact that Twitter lets her get away with it is appalling and only makes them complicit in whatever harm results.

RELATED: Trump Shill Calls Violent Insurrectionists ‘Unwitting,’ Peaceful Abortion Protesters ‘Terrorists’

And to make matters worse, if Elon Musk’s bid to acquire Twitter goes through (which is not certain), he has already said he’ll restore Trump’s account. However, Trump says that he won’t return to Twitter even if the ban is lifted. But considering Trump’s proclivity for lying, take that with a pound or two of salt.

Tucker Carlson of Fox News Attacks Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre in a Brazenly Racist Rant

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!

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Klan

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.

RELATED: Tucker Carlson of Fox News Fears Democrats are ‘Importing New Voters’ to ‘Replace’ Him

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?

RELATED: Tucker Carlson of Fox News Says Biden Chose Ketanji Brown Jackson to ‘Destroy’ the Supreme Court

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 Hysterically Hypes Bogus Election ‘Fraud’ Film By Convicted Election Fraudster

A year and half ago, Donald Trump decisively lost the presidential election to Joe Biden. But the sting of that humiliation continues to torment the twice impeached, former reality TV game show host, and failed real estate con man. And in his desperation, Trump persists in peddling his “Big Lie,” the delusional, factless allegations that the election was “rigged.”

Fox News. Tucker Carlson

Throughout that same period of recent history, Fox News has embraced and dispensed Trump’s lies to their willfully gullible viewers. And now a new film is being pitched that purports to blow the lid off of the election fraud scandal. Surprisingly, its title, “2,000 Mules” is not a reference to the numerous jackasses who produced it. But unsurprisingly, it was featured on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program on Thursday night, between segments where he is fawning over Russian dictator, Vladimir Putin.

RELATED: Tucker Carlson: US is Only Aiding Ukraine to ‘Punish Russia’ for ‘Stealing Hillary Clinton’s Coronation’

Carlson introduced this segment with a trio of Democrats asserting, correctly, that “the 2020 election was the most secure in history:”

Rep. Adam Schiff: The American people chose Joe Biden to be their next president by an enormous margin. The successful conduct of that election, among the most secure in American history, was not an accident.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren: The 2020 election was the most secure conducted in modern history.

Rep. Eric Swalwell: You’re gonna see states like Arizona and Georgia learn the wrong lesson from 2020, the most secure election ever.

To which Carlson replied with a maniacal laugh…

“That’s just the most secure election ever. Really hair hat? Tell us how. He can’t tell us how. He’s just lying. Maybe it was the most secure election ever, but we have a right to determine for ourselves if it was the most secure election ever. Period. We have an absolute, god-given right.”

And the video of this malarkey was posted by Donald Trump’s Twitter ban defying spokes-shill, Liz Harrington:

“Hair hat”? Let’s just set aside that boneheaded attempt at an insult. Carlson is complaining that those who claim that the election was secure can’t confirm it. Of course the obligation to confirm rests with those who allege fraud. And they have had a year and a half, and more than sixty court cases, to prove their allegations and have failed entirely. It is Carlson and his cohorts who are lying. If he is so intent on “determin[ing] for ourselves” whether the election was rigged, what’s stopping him? Why hasn’t he, or Trump, or Fox News, done so yet? Perhaps because they know they are lying.

RELATED: WTF? Tucker Carlson Mocks Biden for Believing that He Won in 2020, Which, of Course, He Did

On this episode of Carlson’s propaganda-fest, he interviewed the film’s producer, Catherine Englebrecht. She’s the president of True the Vote, a rabidly partisan and thoroughly disreputable band of wingnut activists. Englebrecht worked with the convicted felon, Dinesh D’Souza, on “2,000 Mules.” For the record, after pleading guilty, D’Souza was convicted of – wait for it – campaign finance fraud! A crime so heinous that, naturally, Trump pardoned him. Now he’s using his experience as an election cheat to make false allegations about election cheating.

Needless to say, the film that Carlson and Fox News are promoting contains no evidence of voter fraud whatsoever. If they had anything incriminating they would have already presented it in court, under oath, where legal remedies could be addressed. But they continue to have nothing but wild accusations without a shred of proof. In fact, all the proof is held by those who certified the election.

The New York Times contacted election officials in all fifty states, including Republicans, and every one said that there was “no evidence of widespread fraud or irregularities in this election.” And several members of Trump’s own administration also upheld the legitimacy of election. For instance, the director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Chris Krebs, said that

“The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history. […] There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.”

And that’s not all

Christopher Wray, FBI Director: We have not seen, historically, any kind of coordinated national voter fraud effort in a major election, whether it’s by mail or otherwise.

Benjamin Hovland, of the U.S. Election Assist­ance Commission: Time and time again, when the rubber hits the road, there’s no evidence — whether that’s in court cases, whether that’s in the presidential commission that was … an embarrassment.

Ben Ginsberg, Veteran Repub­lican Party Election Lawyer: As he confronts losing, Trump has devoted his campaign and the Republican Party to this myth of voter fraud.

Karl Rove: Mr. Trump must prove systemic fraud, with illegal votes in the tens of thousands. There is no evidence of that so far.

Attorney General William Barr: To date, [DOJ invest­ig­at­ors] have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a differ­ent outcome in the elec­tion.

Attorney General Barr later elaborated on his view telling ABC News correspondent Jonathan Karl (in his recent book “Betrayal”) that “My suspicion all the way along was that there was nothing there. It was all bullshit.” Which, come to think of it, is actually a pretty good description of Carlson’s crackpot conspiracy theorizing, as well as the whole four years that Trump was occupying the White House.

EU Bans Russian Propaganda TV Networks, While Fox News Still Peddles Putin’s Lies in the US

From the outset of Russia’s brutal and unprovoked invasion of Ukraine, Russia has been frantically struggling to disseminate flagrant falsehoods regarding the war in an effort to justify their genocidal aggression against a peaceful neighbor. Vladimir Putin has variously claimed that Ukraine doesn’t really exist as a sovereign nation or that he’s rescuing its people from its Nazi leaders. All of which are heinous lies.

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News, Vladimir Putin

The propaganda crusade embarked upon by Russia has a global footprint, with media outlets that are controlled by the Kremlin promulgating blatantly fictional distortions of reality. But that campaign of deceit has just hit a road block in the European Union as it takes a big step toward shutting down the flow Russian disinformation. According to Politico

“European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen Wednesday proposed banning three additional Russian state-owned broadcasters from Europe, in a move designed to crack down on Russian disinformation after Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.

“Von der Leyen gave details on a sixth package of sanctions against Russia, during an address to the European Parliament plenary in Strasbourg. ‘We are banning three big Russian state-owned broadcasters from our airwaves. They will not be allowed to distribute their content anymore in the EU, in whatever shape or form, be it on cable, via satellite, on the internet or via smartphone apps,’ von der Leyen said.

“‘We have identified these TV channels as mouthpieces, that amplify [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s lies and propaganda aggressively. We should not give them a stage anymore to spread these lies,’ she added. […] At the beginning of March, Kremlin-backed RT and Sputnik were banned in the EU.”

This is a wholly appropriate action to stem the dishonesty emanating from Russia as it executes its deadly scorched earth offensive against Ukraine. And it should be seen as an example of how other nations should deal with Russia’s media hype networks that are polluting the public discourse.

Among the nations that should take inspiration from the EU is the United States, where Putin’s propaganda pulpits continue to preach. And there is not a more shameless mouthpiece for Putin’s lies than Fox News. Along with relentless criticisms of President Biden, the network airs daily defenses of Russia and exaltations of Putin from the likes of Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and especially, Fox News Senior Putin Apologist, Tucker Carlson.

RELATED: Tucker Carlson of Fox News Rattles Off His Ridiculous Reasons for Why You Shouldn’t Hate Putin

As far back as November 2021, Carlson was taking Russia’s side over the U.S. and fawning over Putin saying…

“Why do I care about what’s going on in the conflict between Ukraine and Russia? And why shouldn’t I root for Russia, because I am.”

More recently, Carlson insisted that the U.S. wasn’t really interested in helping Ukraine at all. He said that the Biden administration was only doing it to “punish Russia” for “stealing Hillary Clinton’s coronation.” You have to hand it to Carlson for managing to mash up the war in Ukraine with Fox’s obsession with Clinton.

That, however, doesn’t even begin to tell the whole story of Fox’s treasonous betrayals. Carlson has also been advocating appeasement with Russia as it continues to murder innocent Ukrainians. “If you wanted to save Ukraine,” Carlson advised, “you would push for a settlement now.” And he parroted the Russian whine that “the war in Ukraine is designed to cause regime change in Moscow.” What’s more, Carlson regularly serves up Russian fake news, such as his Kremlin-approved assertion that pictures of Ukrainian massacres are a “false flag” operation. And for his trouble, clips from Carlson’s program are replayed almost nightly on Russian-state TV.

RELATED: Only on Fox News: Russian Foreign Minister Praises the Network’s Pro-Putin Propaganda

So while the EU is taking responsible actions to stem the spread of Russian disinformation, Fox News is embracing and magnifying it. They are deliberately poisoning the weak minds of their gullible viewers with treasonous talking points taken directly from Putin’s playbook. They are furthering the interests of America’s enemies. And it all comes wrapped in a barrage of garisbh red, white, and blue graphics, and pseudo-patriotic music.

Tucker Carlson: US is Only Aiding Ukraine to ‘Punish Russia’ for ‘Stealing Hillary Clinton’s Coronation’

Fox News has a roster of ultra-regressive shills who provide a daily dose of diatribes that are drenched with dishonesty. But on any given day you can rely on one pundit in particular to sink below the rest and unleash the most repugnant distortions of reality and flagrant conspiracy theories contrived on the manically right-wing network. And that dishonor is bestowed upon Fox’s Senior White Nationalist, Tucker Carlson.

Hillary Clinton

Leave it to Carlson to find the scum-slathered bottom of every issue with his smug sermonizing and deliberate disregard for facts. The latest example of his Olympic-grade assholery was presented on Monday night during a segment on the Russian war in Ukraine. Carlson took his standard position in support of Russia and its genocidal dictator, Vladimir Putin.

RELATED: Fox News Senior Putin Apologist, Tucker Carlson, Pleads to Keep the Russian Dictator in Power

However, on this occasion Carlson went even further down the rabid hole with his warped analysis of why the United States is providing aid to Ukraine. And in his perverse perspective it had nothing to do with saving lives or defending a democratic ally. Carlson ranted that (video below)

“Democrats have convinced themselves Russia stole the presidency which rightfully belonged to Hillary Clinton. And they mean it when they say it. And that’s why they are taking us to war with Russia. [..] The war in Ukraine is not about saving democracy. Please.”

WHUT? Democrats are taking the U.S. to war because “Russia stole the presidency” from Hillary Clinton? That’s the sort of unique perspective that one would expect from a schizoid street preacher on meth. Carlson asserted that “We know the Biden administration doesn’t care” about the Ukrainian people or democracy and that “Many more Ukrainian civilians will die, certainly, thanks to the Biden administration’s policies.” He continued his rant saying that…

“If you wanted to save Ukraine, its people, its infrastructure, you would push for a settlement now. You would have done it two months ago. But they’re not doing that. […] Instead, the war in Ukraine is designed to cause regime change in Moscow. They want to topple the Russian government. That would be payback for the 2016 election. So this it the logical, maybe the inevitable, end stage of “Russiagate.” Now we should have seen this coming because they said it out loud years ago. Here’s Adam Schiff from two years ago predicting it, saying it. Watch this…”

Here we have Carlson unambiguously advocating for appeasement with the Russian invaders. He seriously believes that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy should negotiate with Putin – who is murdering Ukrainian civilians – to concede part of Ukraine to Russia simply because Russia demands it. And Carlson’s claim that “the war in Ukraine is designed to cause regime change in Moscow” is utterly absurd. The war was started by Russia. So is Carlson saying that Russia designed the war to cause regime change in Russia?

RELATED: Trump’s ‘Solution’ to the War in Ukraine is to Appease Russia and Quash Any Criticism of Putin

Carlson then switches gears to assert that the war is actually “payback for the 2016 election.” And his justification for that ludicrous notion comes from something he clipped from Rep. Adam Schiff’s opening remarks of the first impeachment of Donald Trump:

Schiff video: As one witness put it during our impeachment inquiry, “The United States aids Ukraine and her people so that we can fight Russia over there and we don’t have to fight Russia over here.

As usual, Carlson edited that video to remove the context. Carlson is trying to portray the motivation for American aid to Ukraine as solely based on antipathy toward Russia. But in Schiff’s unedited remarks it is apparent that the concern for Ukraine was paramount:

“Trump conditioned hundreds of millions of dollars in congressionally appropriated, taxpayer-funded military assistance for the same purpose: to apply more pressure on Ukraine’s leader to announce the investigations. This military aid, which has long enjoyed strong bipartisan support, was designed to help Ukraine defend itself from the Kremlin’s aggression. More than fifteen thousand Ukrainians have died fighting Russian forces and their proxies, and the military aid was for such essentials as sniper rifles, rocket propelled grenade launchers, radar, night vision goggles and other vital support for the war effort.

Most critically, the military aid we provide Ukraine helps to protect and advance American national security interests in the region and beyond. America has an abiding interest in stemming Russian expansionism, and resisting any nation’s efforts to remake the map of Europe by dint of military force, even as we have tens of thousands of troops stationed there. Moreover, as one witness put it during our impeachment inquiry: ‘The United States aids Ukraine and her people so that they can fight Russia over there, and we don’t have to fight Russia here.'”

It’s also notable that it wasn’t just Democrats who supported aid to Ukraine. Republicans, then as now, voted to appropriate funds and military support. So that’s another reason that Carlson’s claim that Democrats plotted all of this to topple Putin doesn’t make any sense. But making sense clearly isn’t the objective of someone who claims that…

“We don’t arm Ukraine so we can help Ukrainians. They are merely unfortunate pawns in all of this. We arm Ukraine so that we can punish Russia. Why? For stealing Hillary Clinton’s coronation.”

So it’s still all about Hillary Clinton? REALLY? Notice that nowhere in Carlson’s harangue does he ever acknowledge that Russia initiated this heinous invasion against a peaceful neighbor. Or that, contrary to being pawns, Ukraine has been begging for help to fight Russia. To Carlson, just as to Trump, this is merely a negotiable difference of opinion that should be resolved by reaching a compromised settlement wherein both parties make concessions.

Never mind that it’s Putin who is the aggressor and refuses to negotiate. There is simply no way that Carlson will criticize Putin or demand that Russia cease its monstrous assault and leave Ukraine. And rather than acknowledge reality, he’s venturing even farther from it with his bizarre allegations about Hillary Clinton. Carlson is as cognitively deficient as Trump.

REALLY? Tucker Carlson Accuses Kevin McCarthy of Being ‘a Puppet of the Democratic Party’

Kevin McCarthy appears to be determined to undermine his chances of ever becoming Speaker of the House. This week it was reported that he had conversations with fellow Republicans after the January 6th insurrection wherein he revealed that he had considered urging Donald Trump to resign. It was reported that he told Rep. Liz Cheney that “I’ve had it with this guy. What he did is unacceptable. Nobody can defend that, and nobody should defend it.”

Fox News, Tucker Carlson

When asked about these reports by the press, McCarthy flatly insisted that no such conversations ever took place. Then, of course, the recordings of him saying precisely what was reported were released.

After McCarthy was caught in this bald-faced lie he struggled to salvage what remained of his reputation, which wasn’t particularly good to be begin with. He managed to get Trump’s seal of approval largely on the strength of his rock-solid sucking up. However, that was before a second batch of recordings was released.

In the new recordings McCarthy is heard lambasting his insurrection supporting GOP colleagues, including Matt Gaetz, Mo Brooks, Lauren Boebert, Louie Gohmert, and Barry Moore. He correctly noted that Gaetz was “putting people in jeopardy,” and acknowledged that Trump’s insurrectionists “came prepared with rope, with everything else.”

Even worse for McCarthy, he is now having some trouble with the Republican Ministry Propaganda, Fox News. On Tuesday night Tucker Carlson chastised McCarthy savagely for his political heresy (video below). Carlson ranted that…

“Kevin McCarthy of California told his close friend Liz Cheney that he hoped the social media companies would censor more conservative Republicans in Congress. Donald Trump, the sitting president, had already been silenced by those companies, but McCarthy wanted wanted the tech oligarchs to do more to force disobedient lawmakers off the Internet. Quote, ‘Can’t they take their Twitter accounts away too?'”

McCarthy’s question about taking away Twitter accounts was triggered by the report of Alabama Rep. Barry Moore tweeting a racist comment about the police shooting of violent insurrectionist Ashli Babbitt as she tried to storm the Capitol. Moore portrayed that as “a black police officer that shot the white female veteran.” But this wasn’t about punishing “disobedient lawmakers.” It was about McCarthy’s justifiable concern that these sort of extremist tirades by the most radical members of his caucus could damage the GOP’s electoral prospects come November and, hence, his speakership aspirations.

Furthermore, it’s rather comical to hear Carlson whine about “tech oligarchs” after Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter, which Carlson celebrated with unbridled glee. Do you think he knows what “oligarch” means? Perhaps he could ask his boss, Rupert Murdoch.

RELATED: Trump Declares that ‘I Am Not Going Back On Twitter’ After the Elon Musk Takeover

But Carlson hadn’t finished his harangue. He went on to make some truly delusional characterizations of the rabidly conservative and staunchly Republican McCarthy as a flaming liberal who is aligned with the Democratic Party. Carlson fumed that…

“Those are the tape recorded words of congressman Kevin McCarthy. A man who in private, turns out, sounds like an MSNBC contributor. And yet, unless conservatives get their act together right away, Kevin McCarthy, or one of his highly liberal allies like Elise Stefanik, is very likely to be speaker of the House in January. That would mean we will have a Republican congress led by a puppet of the Democratic Party.”

WTF? If Carlson thinks that McCarthy and Stefanik are “highly liberal” his family should seriously consider having him committed. It would be interesting to hear what Carlson thinks are examples of McCarthy being a Democratic puppet, considering that he has opposed everything that Democrats have proposed with knee-jerk consistency. And Carlson’s assertion that Liz Cheney is a close friend of McCarthy ignores the fact that he supported her removal from the GOP leadership and replacement by the shameless Trump-fluffer, Stefanik.

This conflict between Carlson and McCarthy is representative of the disarray that is roiling the Republican Party. Members are torn between their worshipful sycophancy to Trump and their long-standing commitment to repugnant right-wing politics. So it’s a lose-lose. If they keep this up – and if Democrats cleverly encourage it – it will not bode for well for their midterm dreams of majorities in Congress. Maybe it’s Carlson who is helping the Democrats.

Tucker Carlson Spews Disinformation to Slander Barack Obama for Opposing Disinformation

Former President Barack Obama visited Stanford University on Friday to deliver a profound and timely address on the dangers of disinformation. He warned that “Once [people] lose trust in their leaders, the mainstream media, in political institutions, in each other, in the possibility of truth, the game is won.” It was a compelling discourse on the precarious state of modern communications and propaganda.

Obama Fox News

Naturally, whenever Obama appears in public to remind everyone what an intelligent and articulate leader sounds like, Fox News needs to start flinging feces at him in a desperate effort to deflect from his pertinent and persuasive message. And on Friday that assignment was given to Fox’s Senior White Nationalist, Tucker Carlson. Carlson began his harangue by flagrantly misrepresenting Obama’s words. Carlson said that…

“Obama argued that only his political opponents lie, and they must be stopped immediately.”

Of course, Obama didn’t say either of those things. Carlson is simply making stuff up so that he can subsequently condemn it in his typically pretentious and whiny voice. This is, after all, the same cretinous cream puff who recently declared that “The End of Men” was imminent and that the only salvation was a program of therapeutic testicle tanning.

RELATED: Macho Poser Tucker Carlson’s Journey from ‘Dancing With the Stars’ to ‘The End of Men’

Carlson followed his opening lie with a video of Obama that actually proved that Carlson was lying. In the video Obama said that…

“People like Putin, and Steve Bannon for that matter, understand it’s not necessary for people to believe this information in order to weaken democratic institutions. You just have to flood a country’s public square with enough raw sewage. You just have to raise enough questions, spread enough dirt, plant enough conspiracy theorizing, that citizens no longer know what to believe.”

Whereupon Carlson proceeded to excrete some more misrepresentations of what Obama had said. Carlson raged…

“Oh. So people who disagree with Barack Obama aren’t just saying things that are wrong, They’re flooding raw sewage into our country.”

Once again, not only did Obama never say that people who disagree with him are wrong, his reference to “flooding raw sewage into our country” was taken directly from remarks made by Steve Bannon, who stirred up his seditionist audience by saying that “The Democrats don’t matter. The real opposition is the media. And the way to deal with them is to flood the zone with shit.” Carlson not only neglects to mention that, but he has clearly taken it to heart, as evidenced by his body of work.

Carlson continued…

“So this guy is not just liberal. In fact, he’s not liberal at all. He’s a full-blown fascist who hates you and wants to keep you from talking, or else. He wants censorship of anyone who disagrees with him, and now he just comes out and says it.”

Really? Where Carlson gets that “fascist” business from is a mystery. It certainly isn’t from anything that Obama said. It’s most likely projection, wherein Carlson is just observing what he sees in himself and projecting it onto his foe. Carlson then plays another video that proves, again, that he’s lying.

“While content moderation can limit the distribution of clearly dangerous content, it doesn’t go far enough. Users who want to spread disinformation have become experts at pushing right up to the line of what, at least, published company policies allow. And at those margins social media platforms tend not to want to do anything. Not just because they don’t want to be accused of censorship, but because they still have a financial incentive to keep as many users engaged as possible.”

Exactly! Ultra-rightist Republicans like Carlson repeatedly misconstrue the Constitution’s First Amendment. As Obama noted, it is a check on government overreach, and does not apply to private companies. It is not a violation of anyone’s rights if CNN or Fox News or the New York Times or Twitter declines to disseminate commentaries that are false, abusive, or otherwise harmful or unlawful or merely violate the company’s terms of service. It’s called free speech. Nevertheless, Carlson persists in his ignorance to say…

“So me and my friends at the Aspen Institute need to be in complete control of every word uttered or else it’s not democracy. That’s the case he’s making. That’s the case their all making.”

No, Tucker. That’s not the case that Obama, or anyone else, is making. It’s just the mischaracterization that you’re making to deliberately deceive your already dimwitted viewers. Which you are doing quite well. And it’s why President Biden observed accurately that Fox News is “one of the most destructive forces in the United States.”
