A Little Domestic Tuckerism To Start Your Day?

You will be reading a lot today (probably) about this January 4, 2021 quote from rhymes-with-Tucker:

“We are very, very close to being able to ignore Trump most nights. I truly can’t wait. I hate him passionately.”

…in light of his recent program showing non-rioters and in support of his claim that it was just an ordinary Capitol Tour that got outta hand.

As for me, well, I’ve never been on a tour that suddenly burst into chants to hang someone, and usually the tour ends at the gift shop to buy a souvenir, not ransacking an office and walking out with [checks notes] a lectern, and a warrant for my arrest.

We object, your Honor. There’s no way Tuckems knows anything about an honest person.

Anyway, here’s some reactions to this mothertucker:

Amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell:

“With regard to the presentation on Fox News last night, I want to associate myself entirely with the opinion of the chief of the Capitol Police about what happened on January 6th.”

Mike Rounds (R-SD):

“I thought it was an insurrection at that time. I still think it was an insurrection today.”

Mitt Romney (R-UT):

“It’s a very dangerous thing to do, to suggest that attacking the Capitol of the United States is in any way acceptable and it’s anything other than a serious crime, against democracy and against our country.”

Meanwhile, inside the hen house:

Bombshell? Fox News is Completely Ignoring Tucker Carlson’s Jan. 6 Tapes

And the real victim of all this of course is House Speaker K-Mac, who is really bad at his job:

Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said he does not regret sharing footage from the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson despite receiving bipartisan blowback, arguing that the decision was made for transparency.

“No,” McCarthy told reporters on Tuesday when asked if he regretted granting Carlson access. “I said at the very beginning, transparency. And so what I wanted to produce for everybody is exactly what I said. The people could actually look at it and see what’s gone on that day.”

Last word:

  1. Fox and all those Republicans virtue signaling about this aren’t the dogs that Fucker Tarlson’s whistle is for, but they absolutely know who it’s meant for…the kind of folks Josh ‘Running Man’ Hawley saluted with his raised fist.

    it’s all those “lone wolves, hoocoodaknowed…they seemed like ordinary people, well except for the Nazi flags and weird explosions coming from their back yards…” out there, just waiting for the signal that it’s ok to start the killing now.

    And they heard the whistle good and loud.

    the piece written by Officer Sicknick’s family is well written and justified in pointing the middle finger at Tucker Carlson and Faux Snooze. Never in my lifetime have I seen a more unworthy and a supposed news organization betray America’s interests. Here’s hoping that Dominion’s lawsuit will be the end of them…

    • I keep seeing ‘legal analysts’ on the various talking head shows saying things like “I don’t see how Fox’s legal team is going to settle this before trial”

      They never quite get to the part where Dominion has precisely zero incentive to not take this through to trial and crush Fox Snooze.

      It’s like speculating about what kind of plea bargain a murderer could be expected to get when the prosecution has video of the crime from 17 angles clearly showing the murderer committing the murder, the murder weapon, the killer’s clothes with the victim’s blood all over it, 4,000 emails between the murderer and other people wher the murderer says “Yes, yes it was me who killed them, and here’s a new picture of me standing over the dead person with the weapon in my hand”

      What I wonder is whether or not all the jurisdictions where they’ve had to scrap all their voting machines (because the local feral MAGAt’s taking or stealing the voting machines, fueled by Fox’s continued lies on the air), could sue Fox themselves for the costs of replacing the now-compromised voting equipment when Fox loses their defamation case bigly.

    A little selective editing of the footage, and voila, no more riot. I hate the way this now muddles the proven narrative.

    • First, they have to count on us not believing our lying eyes, because we all saw the J6 riot as it happened. The only people who would possibly be convinced are the regular Fox viewers, who already believe it was “Just a tourist visit”

      Second, from all reports Fucker’s retcon is a bad retcon, because apparently he used the same brilliant auteurs behind his “Tan Your Junk For Manliness” video, so it’s very clear that it’s edited with a chainsaw.

    As long as Tucker is including the whole Jan. 6 … thing, his statement isn’t wrong. Just as the Menendez brothers can honestly claim to be orphans. And they had less proof of their contribution to that fact than we have of the rioters and the outgoing administration in toto betraying American democracy.

    I wonder if we’ve reached an “inflection point” with Fux News. How much more damage to reputation can an entity like this take? I know I’m giving the MAGA Morons too much credit, but how can anyone believe anything these creatures say after their nauseating hypocrisy has been exposed?

    These seditious, fascist bastards are little better than “Russia Today” (RT), which the Biden administration properly banned after the Ukraine Invasion. But how does one counteract a vile domestic propaganda organ equally as dangerous as RT, which is fueled by an obsession with profit and media power– even if it must resort to hideous lies that undermine trust in our elections, democracy, and very form of government?

    Does the First Amendment really stretch this far? Are private civil suits the only remedy?

    I wish I knew the answer, but I don’t.

      ‘Epistemic Closure’ is a hella drug. Remember, surveys of people’s current events knowledge sorted by news source consumption have found people who watch primarily Fox News are more ignorant of current events than people who do not regularly consume any news outlet at all.
