    As usual, When one of Fox News regulars sticks a foot in their mouth--which happens on a routine basis--the get sent on vacation. Tucker Carlson is no exception as he claimed White Supremist groups are practically nonexistent. This shortly after the massacre in El Paso.


    After numerous calls to Fox for an explanation by reporters, no one seems to be home. Carlson is known to be considered one the White Supremist Groups best allies according to one head of the group.


    Enjoy your vac, Tucker!  tongue

      I almost had a glimmer of hope for Carlson watching him interview Tulsi Gabbard. So much for that. The claim is so ridiculous one has to wonder if it's a scripted part of all this grand corporate-political theater.

    I saw this, went to YouTube to find the segment, watched it.

    I think this is typical of the left. Take something said, spin it so completely out of context even a perfunctory look at the truth of the statement can allow the casual observer a moment of head shaking at the lie, throw it out to the masses, and then shake your head again as you watch people virtually salivate at the opportunity to spread the lie.

    But, I noticed in another thread you think people being lemmings was acceptable. Not surprised to see you starting this.

      I watched Carlson make the statement , LTL.  So why did Fox not answer calls for an explanation? And why is Carlson suddenly on vacation shortly after his spiel?

      Your last sentence is totally false, LTL. You brought up lemmings in another thread comment. I never mentioned lemmings...

        I brought up lemmings because your comment sounded like you expect humans to act like lemmings.

        What I heard on the segment waa something to the effect of....it's a problem but put it in perspective. The number of white nationalists identified would barely fill up the stands at an average basketball game. We have lots of problems and they do not factor in anywhere near the top of the most pressing.

        Not the same thing you are peddling here.

          How many people would a basketball stadium full of White Supremist folks kill apiece if they have the proper weaponry? That is an AK 47 with a couple of hundred round capacity drums which are easily obtained. 


          If you don't consider this scenario, then you're simply blowing smoke with your comments.

            I don't know, it seems to me you are assuming every person we'd label white supremacist is going to go on a shooting rampage.

            They aren't ticking time bombs. They are an at risk segment of society. We have many of those we aren't addressing.

            The problem I see is the left wants to name anyone they disagree with as Nazis, alt right, fascists, etc. So that is just another term the left has conveniently muddled into a confusing set of words whose definition we have no idea if we agree on.

            It appears the left, by doing this, wants to throw a smokescreen they can use to falsely brand any who disagree as part of that at risk group, in an attempt to bully a large segment of the population into silence.

            You don't gain converts to your way of thinking through intimidation.

            What you end up doing by labeling all who you perceive as disagreeing with you the names we all detest is push many to fear this 'white supremacist' conversation is just a stepping stone by the left. They aren't fighting any violence. Not on any front. So what makes this conversation different?

            At no juncture have I heard any of those laughing at their political opponents for the false allegation that those who don't agree with you are just scared of any person who isn't white argue in defense of real solutions to stem violence from any quarter. Other than this topic.

            It makes one wonder what your motive is. Branding all who disagree with you as white supremacists in other discussions, now claiming all white supremacists are one gun purchase away from mass murder.

            I'd be scared too, if I didn't find your arguments so see through.

            These ass holes are a symptom of a larger problem. It isn't white supremacy as the only, or even the primary, force driving the violence in our nation. It is one of a large tapestry of problems we aren't willing to work together to solve.

              Well said!  Applying labels is a fine scare tactic, designed and often effective at producing fear and/or hate.  Dividing the country is the desired result and it's working.

                Applying "Labels" is perfectly appropriate if the "Label" accurately depicts a person and or group of people: Everyone knows "SCHMUCKER" Carlson is a white nationalist and Trump enabler, a clueless one at that just like all the other little weirdo evening and or late night Communist Russian Loving Propagators of  HATE and Divisiveness Fox gives valuable air-time to:

                We also know public evidence supports the "Labels" White Nationalist, Racist, Bigot, Misogynist, Russian Stooge, Prolific LIAR, DUMB, Reckless, Ignorant, Mentally iLL, Strange, Weird, Unpatriotic and Very Unpleasant to Look when appled to Donald John:

                I have not defended him.  I've said everyone using divisive rhetoric should stop.  You sound more in line with racism,  to me.

                  "I haven't defended him,"

                  Are you sure about that?

                    I have,  on a number of occasions,  stated his rhetoric is not helpful and someone should take away his Twitter privileges.

                    I have also stated all parties should stop the divisive rhetoric.  I don't defend him as much as question the motives behind hypocritical posts of those who always complain about his behavior but not of other politicians who are as equally offensive.

    According to reports, Fox Fake Channel has been in sponsor trouble for a very long time: DUMPING Fox like hot cakes: Tucker "Should be wearing a bowtie because at least it makes him look smarter" Carlson is probably GONE from our airwaves just like the rest of this alt right nationalist propaganda outlet: Another nationalist racist moron the likes of which we defeated in the 1940's is GONE from television hopefully:

    "Carlson's show loses sponsors after racist audio resurfaces"

    This is just UNREAL: I just caught a brief film clip of SCHMUCKER Carlson over at that Fox outlet and he actually said something like this when talking about immigrants I'm assuming without papers, coming to the USA:  He said and I paraphrase" "This is like our current culture  in the USA being replaced by foreigners":

    I couldn't help but drop in a fit of laughter at this complete fool and then I realized how pathetic and inciteful it is:

      This is the basic fear that certain white people have: that some day they will be a minority race in the U.S. This thought sends shivers down their spines and sends waves of terror through their overactive amygdalas.

        It seems they fear mere equality. yikes

          Yes, they have enjoyed their privileged status for so long that equality feels like victimization to them.

        Strange, I always say that is the fear of the whites on the left.

            Make yourself feel better. Think ill of others if you choose. One day, hopefully, you'll explore the insecurities that cause people to go down that path.

              Sigh....understanding research is not "thinking ill of others." Did you notice I said certain whites? I stated: "This is the basic fear that certain white people have: that some day they will be a minority race in the U.S."

              46% of whites worry becoming a majority-minority nation will 'weaken American culture,' survey says

              White fear of demographic change is powerful psychological force

              Now, do you have a rebuttal or just more unfounded nonsense?
