People who watch TC are idiots. They can't see what a phony, self-serving, lying, attention seeking POS he is because he feeds their emotional needs and puny intellects.

Watching TC is the Right-wings version of Self-affirmation Tapes -
an endless repetition of "you are right, they are wrong, you are good, they are evil".

Didn't Tucker have to let go his nazi producer? If so, maybe all he has left are other kinds of bigots.

You entirely missed Warp's point: There is no way this fat-arsed pasty-faced ugly slob wearing awfully-chosen clothes and a stupid red cap while pretending he knows how to play tennis and following the rules, can ever be president of the USA. I mean...ugh! He simply doesn't qualify!

That's your takeaway form my comment? Whatever your repulsive views are, and your apparent inability to be aware that not everyone fits your standards of attractiveness, a person's gender or attractiveness actually has no bearing whatsoever on their ability to properly manage and conduct an important job.

Cat kicked your ass on this.

Here you go on making spiteful and degrading comments about human beings. That's right human beings.

As if Levine has no right to live and to have a job. Seriously, why do you or anyone care about what someone looks like if they get the job done?

It's funny. I've watched TC for years. He's not an idiot. I couldn't stand him. But he wasn't the idiot we see these days. He made a conscious decision to become the crazy and awful
person he is these days.

Apart, perhaps, from conducting a sting or bluffing your way out of a concentration camp, and so forth, it's hard to think of a way that knowingly embracing stupidity is smart. One might opine that a person who makes that decision consciously, however clever and opportune his reasons might seem to him, is, in fact a very great idiot.

And yet people do it every day all around the world when they attend their mosque, temple or church. He is appealing to a bat crap crazy audience. Actually making sense doesn't win ratings wars with the right these days.

Supporting Trump requires one to lose all sense of decency and honesty. He lay down with the insane, disgusting dog and he got up with the insane, disgusting fleas.

Honestly speaking, when I attempt to understand these people, what I really see is one of three things:
(1) hicks, who've been portrayed as hicks for decades in traditional media and ridiculed, because hicks are, in fact, ridiculous, which enrages all the more, so " **** the world, Donald Trump and TC up your arse, city boy".
(2) absolutists who embrace the idea that ideas trump factual reality by rote habit, part of what "faith" means, and therefore they are fine with outlandish, counter-intuitive, and patently false ideas, along with willful slander of evil outsiders.
(3) 1+2

Haven't made up my mind yet.

More reflectively:

When you hear something bad about someone you love or respect, you want to find out why or what happened and need an explanation.

When you hear something bad about someone you hate or disdain, the pyres of passion are inflamed all the more, conviction is deepened, your will is hardened against them.

Yet, I find myself so taxed beyond all measure, so overwhelmed by the monstrous proposals and policies in vogue among the Right, that I cannot resist becoming more enraged at every new slight to reason, every nod to the cave. Then again, once I've had a thought... I, uh, find very little to change. Such is the nature of the dehumanizing, spoiling-for-war extremism before us.

How do statements disagreeing with your opinion constitute something your opinion does not? Is it just a peculiarity of the right-wing mind to assume that no opinion contrary to yours can be honest? What are you trying to signal if virtue has become a negative?

REally, "virtue signaling" is a loathsome term, a cheap way to accuse people of hypocrisy without having to be accountable for it. You may find it difficult to grasp. but it is actually possible, I think, to disagree with you honestly.

Have you decided to stop making degrading comments based on people's looks and gender identification?

Why is it okay for some posters to make horrible awful remarks and not okay for us to point out that real ugliness is hate filled venom?

LMFAO.

"Looks and gender identification". Yeah, let's just ignore the elephant in the room, right? Like the mental health of this freak. A freak who dodges questions about gender experiments on children.

Quote:
Levine completed her transition in 2013. She has undergone sex reassignment surgery and hormonal treatment.
I'm supposing this means that this "well-centered" individual got their dong lopped off? Maybe fashioned into a makeshift clam? Loaded up like a wino, but on hormones?

This person is a weirdo who most people would not want to sit next to on a bus, but is celebrated as a 4-star "Admiral" and in a top position of public health. Gross.

Given years of experience in the medical field and as Secretary of the Department of Health for PA, it doesn't appear there are any questions at all about the mental health of this person. And again, while were answers were not particularly good, how do you answer non-nonsensical questions in a formal setting? US medical guidelines don't permit gender reassignment surgery on individuals under 18. Some hormone therapy is permitted, but it is non-permanent and generally restricted to age 16 and up. So what in the world is the questioner even talking about?

At least she responded politely and calmly, instead of having a whiny ranting crying fit like a two year old and threatening revenge, which is apparently OK for Supreme Court justices.

No, mostly the gross thing here is your bizarre obsession over her appearance. Its really creepy as hell. Like...you're upset that your plans to get off on watching national health broadcasts have been thwarted? I mean, seriously, WTF?

Did somebody take a walk on the wild side and not like it, or rather, liked it too much? Lotta hate and animosity directed at something and someone that will have zero impact on their life.

Seems to have touched a nerve in you. Is there an issue you would like to share with the class?

What the hell are you talking about? Elephant in the room? This person may look strange to you but is actually accomplished.

Wouldn't bother me one bit. But I look at this person as the accomplished human being she is.

She graduated from Harvard and Tulane University and did her residency at Mt Sinai in NYC. She was a Pediatrician on staff at Penn State's Hershey Medical Center for 22 years before becoming the Physician General for the State of Pennsylvania as well as the Pennsylvania Secretary of Health. She is credited with saving the lives of almost 1,000 opioid users because of her order that allowed Police officers to carry the anti-overdose medication naloxone.

What difference does it make that this person identifies as a female and had a sex change?

Out of curiosity, how many lives have you saved? Did you graduate from Harvard and then finish medical school?

Seriously, if you're life was on the line would you prefer an accomplished doctor like Dr. Levine or some picture perfect conservative male from some Bible College?

Wouldn't bother me one bit. But I look at this person as the accomplished human being she is.

She graduated from Harvard and Tulane University and did her residency at Mt Sinai in NYC. She was a Pediatrician on staff at Penn State's Hershey Medical Center for 22 years before becoming the Physician General for the State of Pennsylvania as well as the Pennsylvania Secretary of Health. She is credited with saving the lives of almost 1,000 opioid users because of her order that allowed Police officers to carry the anti-overdose medication naloxone.

What difference does it make that this person identifies as a female and had a sex change?

Out of curiosity, how many lives have you saved? Did you graduate from Harvard and then finish medical school?

Seriously, if you're life was on the line would you prefer an accomplished doctor like Dr. Levine or some picture perfect conservative male from some Bible College?
"She", lol.

Forgetting the part where this person sent those infected with covid into senior-living environments? Of course you are.

ETA: Watching liberals ignore the mental health, and outright sick views of this self-mutilating freak is amazing. The fact that they insist on calling this creature a "woman" is mind-boggling.

Sick views? That she values happiness? Are you mental health professional? What do you know about mental health? Where did you get your degree in psychiatry?

I have a transgender friend. We both attended college together. She was a he then. He attempted suicide. She now 30 years later is an accomplished civil engineer and is happy.
He was my friend in college and I am lucky that she is my friend today.

Would it be better in your mind that my friend was dead because of his internal torture? Or maybe that a thousand people would have overdosed if not because of the hard work of this accomplished doctor?

And by your judgement regarding her and COVID, I guess you hold Trump responsible fore 600,000 COVID deaths? All I see pouring out in your posts is hate based on BS.

Do you seriously have blinders on that prevent you to see beyond superficial gender issues?

To be clear, I don't care about your "friend". It is hard to even keep track of your pronoun usage, tbh.

Now, Levine...yeah, self-mutilating freak who indirectly endorses child abuse and sends seniors to their death? Yeah, I care about that. The only reason this person is in office is because the Dems love their virtue-signaling, above all.

You don't care? Doesn't surprise me. My friend is a human being. An accomplished well adjusted human being. So is Dr. Levine. But all you can see through your hate filled glasses is her lack of a dick.

It seems to me you're obsessed in your hate about irrelevant stuff. I see no evidence she endorses child abuse or that she sent anyone to their death.

But feel free to answer my question about Trump's responsibility for COVID deaths since you are blaming Levine for these Senior's deaths.

I wonder how a "friend" differs from a friend.

Like the accusation of virtue signaling I suspect this is a backhanded way of accusing acbytesla of hypocrisy. If it is not then you should be more sparing of gratuitous punctuation so as not to appear like.... I prefer not to get yellow cards for breaches of etiquette, so let's just say such usage does you no favors.

It's not like that to accuse anyone of hypocrisy. It's only in quotes because he doesn't understand the concept.

It just saddens me that some people don't see others. That their minds and hearts are filled with deep seeded ugliness. That they are determined to spread their self loathing as far and wide as they can.

I understand their hate as I use to be one of them. I despised homosexuals and transgender people. That was until i realized these people are all around us and begun to see them as people. They just want to be able to live out their lives as best they can.

Warp never addressed Dr. Levine credentials. Instead he like Tucker just called this eminent Doctor a sick freak.

Warp and people like him don't want these people to go on with their lives. He sees them as sick. A cancer that must be cut out. They are not human beings in their eyes.
They are obsessed with one personal aspect that is irrelevant to their job performance.

They can not and will not see beyond their hate.

It's fascinating how triggering this is for Warp.

The vitriol from Warp12 does remind me of the anti-gay bashing from a lot of religious conservatives who turned out to be repressing their own homosexuality.

Probably related to the fact that he has more or less affirmed that as far as a hot blooded American manly man, women can only be valued for one thing, and Admiral Levine reeeeeeeeeaaaaaaalllllly confuses him.

Tucker Carlson is having another snit fit over Lindsey Graham and calls Liz Cheney a "left-wing whacko". Who knew Liz is really a liberal?


Quote:
Fox News star Tucker Carlson once again took aim at frequent Fox News guest Lindsey Graham on Monday night, this time raging against the conservative South Carolina senator for reportedly urging Capitol police officers to shoot Jan. 6 rioters.

In a lengthy and extensively reported investigation into the events surrounding the Jan. 6 insurrection, The Washington Post revealed that Graham was “irate that senators were forced to flee their own chamber” after the mob breached the U.S. Capitol.

“He yelled at the Senate sergeant-at-arms. ‘What are you doing? Take back the Senate! You’ve got guns. Use them,’ the Post reported, citing a Republican senator with knowledge of the situation. “We give you guns for a reason. Use them.”
Quote:
After taking another swipe at Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) for blasting his documentary as spreading the “same type of lies” that provoked Jan. 6—calling the Republican lawmaker a “left-wing wacko”—Carlson questioned Graham’s “conservative” bonafides and his position on the riot.
Quote:

Quote:
While Carlson believes the MAGA mob that chanted “Hang Mike Pence” while storming the Capitol in an effort to stop Congress from certifying President Joe Biden’s electoral victory shouldn’t have been subjected to violent retaliatory force, he has a different opinion on Black Lives Matter protesters.

The primetime Fox News star has been one of the biggest champions of Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who aimed firearms at an unarmed group of protesters as they walked by their house. According to Carlson, the McCloskeys had “no choice” but to brandish guns at “screaming BLM fanatics” because they were “violent criminals… being used as a militia by the Democratic Party to seize power.”
“On Jan. 6, Lindsey Graham was running around the Capitol ordering the Capitol Police to murder the protesters. ‘You’ve got guns, use them! We give you guns for a reason,’ shrieked Lindsey Graham,” the Fox host exclaimed. “Shoot American citizens for the crime of trespassing? Really? This is the conservative position, unarmed protesters?”

He added: “They shouldn’t have been there, we’ve never defended that, and never would. But kill them? What the hell is wrong with you, Lindsey Graham? How long before you’re ordering drone attacks on people whose politics you don’t like? What a revealing moment this is.”

Little test: how about people start "protesting" inside Carlson's house.
See if he thinks violence is appropriate then.
