I wish I was a pizza-eating expert. I mean, I *am*, just not professionally.
I wasn't expecting a sensible thought from Sean Hannity tonight, but here we are:

Quote:Hannity on Lake of The Ozarks Video: There’s no mask wearing here that I see... I see no social distancing. But if they get the virus and they’re in contact with older more vulnerable Americans, that could be a disaster... Please wear the mask for your mom, dad, grandma, grandpa

I'm assuming he'll be doubly awful tomorrow to balance things out.
Haha, his pathological compulsion to chastise millenial irresponsibility momentarily won out of his overriding need to tow the Koch-mandated dystopian capitalist line, and I'm sure it caused him physical pain trying to sort it back out.
Well, I'm just shocked:

A working paper by Columbia University and University of Chicago researchers suggests a strong correlation between Fox News viewership and ignoring social distancing guidance during the early weeks of the pandemic.

woah. that's like...unreal.
Yeah, the last few years people have been quick to call Republicans The Party of Trump, but that's not true. They're The Party of Fox News.
Tucker Carlson, who urged the shelter-in-place protests which resulted in police being attacked and a state legislature being stormed with assault weapons, is unsurprisingly singing a different tune with the current Minnesota protest regarding George Floyd's death:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/tucker-carlso...45802.html

Quote:Fox News host Tucker Carlson condemned the protests that have broken out in Minneapolis following the killing of George Floyd by police, claiming on Wednesday night that they are a “form of tyranny” and “oppression.”

With demonstrations growing violent and chaotic as protesters have clashed with riot gear-clad police—who have cracked down on the protesters with tear gas and rubber bullets—Carlson devoted most of his attention to the actions of the demonstrators, who are protesting the death of a black man who was pinned down by a cop.

“So we know that George Floyd died in police custody, and when an investigation is done we will do a lot more,” the conservative primetime host declared  “It’s possible that at least one police officer will be charged in the case. So as of tonight, those are the facts. Here’s another fact: What happened last night in Minneapolis was not a political protest—it was a riot.”

Showing footage of demonstrators breaking windows and cursing, Carlson told his viewers that this is “what rioting looks like,” insisting he wasn’t trying to defend the behavior of the police officers involved in Floyd’s death.

“We are defending society itself,” he said. “Rioting is one thing you don’t want. Ugly opinions, police brutality, officious birdwatchers, rude entitled ladies walking their dogs in big city parks—all of that is bad, but none of it is nearly as bad as what you just saw.”

“The indiscriminate use of violence by mobs is a threat to every American of all colors and backgrounds and political beliefs,” Carlson continued. “Democracy cannot exist when people are rioting. Rioting is a form of tyranny. The strong and the violent oppress the weak and the unarmed. It is oppression.”

The Fox News host went on to accuse CNN and other media outlets of trying to fan racial flames, complaining that CNN labeled the demonstrators as “protesters” rather than “rioters.”

While Carlson said that these recent demonstrations against police brutality are riots and not political protests, the Fox News host—who said last summer that white supremacy is a “hoax”—was singing a different tune during the anti-lockdown protests staged by armed, largely white, right-wingers storming the Michigan capitol.

“This is America,” Carlson said at the time. “We’re allowed to disagree with what our leaders do however we like, and we’re allowed to express that disagreement in public.”
Memba when Tucker got shamed and humiliated by Jon Stewart on CNN for being a fraud and was quickly fired?

I memba. That stupid panicked fear on his dumb fuck face as he begins to realize he's out of a job.
Police brutality is pretty bad but man, those officious birdwatchers are out of control
You know who the biggest victims are in George Floyd's death?  Tucker Carlson's audience:

Video at the link.
Tucker Carlson is a fucking Neo-Nazi with a bow tie. Fuck him and anyone moronic enough to think that what he has to say is remotely important.

*Not directed at you IM, I'm referring to his avid viewers.
No worries, HB. I know what you're getting at, and, yes, he's grotesque. Naturally, I know plenty of people who love him. They're the same people who victimize themselves in every wake of life.

Alex Jones has been pushing this conspiracy theory. Now, it’s heading to Fox:

Even shithead Stu Varney has to push back a little and tell her that her response should probably be a little more substantial than "that poll is stupid and jacked up".

I think what's telling, and would be hilarious if it wasn't so depressing, is that in their minds they think this shit actually deflects the issue of systemic racism.
It just underlines and highlights how spectacularly they miss the point. It doesn't matter if the charge was selling drugs to schoolchildren, IT WAS STILL A HORRIBLE CRIME FOR chauvin TO MURDER HIM IN BROAD DAYLIGHT IN FRONT OF BYSTANDERS AND OTHER OFFICERS.
If Jones was pushing it, we're talking about an accusation of child trafficking, right? This is QAnon/Pizzagate shit? Because I've seen tapes of Jones, and there's no way he believes drugs are bad.
Imagine seeing this ad and then feeling compelled to purchase a subscription to Fox Nation, and then sitting down to watch Andy Ngo cry about having a milkshake thrown at him

Basically for old people who are terrified of the city and watch local news all day long.
Only a certain mindset would want to mine this data:

Fucking hell.
What the fuck
Again, I think it'd honestly be kind of a relief if they just started sacrificing and drinking the blood of the poor and minorities on-camera. You know, just get it all out in the open.
Here's a video of that madness, as it aired:

Carlson has some words for Mitt Romney, Black Lives Matter and Republicans quietly hoping this all goes away:

https://www.mediaite.com/tv/tucker-carls...risis-out/

Quote:Fox News’ Tucker Carlson went on a lengthy tear Monday night about Black Lives Matter, and tore into Mitt Romney in particular for joining protests and saying “Black Lives Matter.”

Romney jointed a protest over the weekend and said, “We need to end violence and brutality and to make sure that people understand that black lives matter.”

“Mitt just wants to make sure that Americans understand — get through their thick heads — that black lives matter. As if Americans didn know that,” Carlson mockingly said. “But accusing your entire country of racism turns out to be a pretty small price for someone like Mitt Romney. What Romney’s really worried about — what all the finance moguls finding this movement are worried about — is that someone somewhere will ask the obvious questions: ‘How much have you, Mitt Romney, personally made — how rich have you become by sending jobs overseas — working-class jobs — by charging obscene interest rates and by otherwise harming poor and black communities economically?”

“Mitt Romney doesn’t want to talk about that at all, so he marches,” he continued. “And Black Lives Matter couldn’t be happier about it. The complicity of people like Mitt Romney gives groups like Black Lives Matter strength.”

Carlson also took a moment to warn Republicans that the idea “Democrats have gone too far this time” and the GOP is guaranteed to win in November may sound good, but it’s “totally and completely wrong.”

“If you care about a country, you’ve got to try. You ve got an obligation to try your very best to protect and defend it, no matter who is helped in November. That’s what patriotism is,” he said. “It’s not about you, it’s about America… Even as a matter of pure politics, this is a mindless analysis, it’s a stupid calculation.”

Carlson also brought up the latest polling showing Joe Biden ahead of Donald Trump and said it looks like Republicans in Washington “have decided to sit this crisis out” and “haven’t bothered to explain what’s wrong” or “what is flawed about Black Lives Matter.”
Ingraham had herself a night:

https://www.mediaite.com/tv/laura-ingrah...r-history/

Quote:Fox News’ Laura Ingraham opened her show Wednesday saying that what’s happening in the country now is about a “propaganda war” trying to attack American history.

Accompanied by a DEMOCRATS CANCEL AMERICA graphic, Inghraham said liberals have succeeded in the past few decades in “purg[ing] almost all conservatives from academia, the entertainment industry, and journalism, and one by one those sectors ultimately fell victim to oppressive groupthink, which had a terrible effect on their work product and credibility.”

She brought up things like reactions to conservatives speaking on college campuses before saying “the culture is where the battle for our future will be won or lost.”

“What we are witnessing is a relentless propaganda war against the old teachings about America. It’s an effort to smear our history and our patriotic spirit,” she said.

She pointed to conservatives of decades past like Phyllis Schlafly who “warned about the poisonous effects of the cultural monopolies” before lamenting that no “prominent liberal” today would “oppose today’s cancel culture.”

Ingraham even said that the protesters are really “the new Bolsheviks.”
Yeah, it's liberals that have chased you out of the arts and entertainment.

Not the fact that you're self centered unfeeling cunts.
Tucker's losing that ad money again!

Tucker Carlson has opened his show every single night for the last 2 weeks with an extended 20 minute rampage. It’s amazing he hasn’t had a heart attack on the air.

Good.
Memba when he panicked on air when Jon Stewart basically destroyed his show and ended it?
