As satirists, Ben Garrison makes Bruce Tinsley look talented, and Tucker Carlson makes Mallard Fillmore look sophisticatedly serious.

I'm sorry, mgidm86, but you may be taking this forum too seriously. If it's getting to you, you might avoid posting for some set period of time, as I did. (I stayed away for a full year, partly because I did have better and more important things to do during that time.)

(ETA: You know what I missed the most? Reading AAH, where most of the good stuff ends up.)

Anyone can see he is a troll at this point. You are wasting your time and helping the trolls ruin this forum.

I know it's probably hard because most arguments coming from the right here are nuts, so there's that.

Maybe it's an addiction. Just say no. Take a step back and look at how much time and effort you are wasting. Have you "won" a single discussion? Have you seen any sign of sincerity in these arguments?

You are being strung along week after week and you think you are doing some good. You are not.

Stop taking the bait and find something better to do with that time.

Sorry but I can't stand this anymore.
I've said it a billion times, I'll say it a billion more.

If you can't ignore people engaging with trolls, then I refuse to believe you honestly don't get why other people can't just magically ignore the trolls.

The whole "I demand everyone ignore the trolls because I can't be expected to ignore them engaging them" makes no sense and frankly comes across as vaguely pro-trolling.

It's the hypocricy that gets me. All these conservatives acting all morally upstanding, yet never once complaining about Fox News flagrantly displaying its swollen dick on basic cable several times a week.

He can't control himself but doesn't dare name the former president.

Quote:
Tucker Carlson: People are going to be offended that I asked this, but I can’t control myself: So, like, what about the president on whose behalf they were gathered that day? Like, has anybody sent them money? … Brad Parscale, all these people around him, are getting rich, right?

Julie Kelly: Right.

Carlson: Complaining that the last election was rigged, which is clearly was. Obviously.

Kelly: Yes.

Carlson: And they’re making all this money and all these people are sending this money down to Florida. But is any of that money going to defend these people who went to this rally on behalf of that candidate?

Kelly: Not that I know of. And I will say no. No. And it’s a question that I have been asking myself and I a lot of them have been asking too. A lot of them were there to support Trump. They were there to protest the election being taken from him unlawfully. But aside, really, from a few comments about political prisoners — he has said a few things about Ashli Babbitt — to my knowledge… no, there has not been any financial aide coming from anyone of a prominent position to help these people.

Carlson: I just find that appalling I really do. I really find that appalling.

I consider the cartoon and its message rubbish. The udder just adds evidence of carelessness too. I think Garrison is a poor artist, apart from his point of view.

They wish to believe the world also denigrates a virtually unknown "Admiral", but stick fingers in ears when the world derisively heaps scorn and opprobrium upon their buffoon of a "President".

Regarding the obligation to object to every offensive post every time, I suspect that the person suggesting it might balk if the same rule were applied to those who find his own statements odious. I would think that for thread economy and general etiquette it might suffice most of the time to make one's views known, and further elaboration assumed.

Carlson on VP Harris:
Quote:
On Monday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson used a portion of his prime-time show to criticize Vice President Kamala Harris, saying she's "not from this country" because she went to school in Canada.

"There's a lot we don't know about Kamala Harris. Most people probably don't know she really grew up in Canada. It's where she went to high school. She's not from this country in that sense, or she's certainly also from Canada," Carlson said.

It must be exhausting constantly making up crap for idiots to be angry about. At this point he's going to attack high school theatre programs by pointing out that 'thespian' sounds a lot like 'lesbian', then he'll cock his head to the side, scrunch up his eyebrows and pucker his lips like he's trying to show what his own ******* looks like.

Although, I have to admit that I have a cousin who was pretty radicalized after living in the suburbs of Toronto for a few years.

Seriously though, I think I've found an explanation for the picture I posted above - that's the face he makes when he's told it's 20 minutes to airtime and he needs to **** something out for the show.

Oh I agree, I used to enjoy watching him, but little by little he's been moving in a direction I can't follow any longer. It's the pandering to the lowest common denominator, I think. So I don't think he's playing chess any longer. Smess, maybe...

Some people are well educated and know how to make a good impression. But I would submit that if he wants to give that up in favor of leading a mob of hateful destroyers of democracy, the veneer is thin, and maybe we should judge his character and his intelligence with what he seeks, not what he forsakes. When his plans go awry he can whine that it's just entertainment, just business, just locker room talk, not the real me, but the real you is what you do time after time, year after year, when nobody catches you out.

Indeed.
People like Carlson never truly have "skin in the game": they always leave an escape of "just kidding" open, so they will never have to suffer the consequences.
That's why we should ignore them.

Don't forget that his own lawyers argued in a lawsuit that he can't be taken seriously as reporting facts. The judge agreed.

"Honestly, Your Honor, what person in their right mind would believe anything coming out of our client's mouth? He's a lying nut job!"

"Agreed! Case dismissed!"

Tucker Carlson has apparently even gone too far for long-time Fox reporters

Fox News still does real reporting, and there are still responsible conservatives providing valuable opinion and analysis. But the voices of the responsible are being drowned out by the irresponsible.
