Listen now (7 mins) | Furious about Chauvin verdict
Frankly, I was amazed that Tucker didn’t urge the Republicans to take to the streets to demand justice for White people, but maybe they were afraid of the new laws that lets counter-protestors drive into crowds.
Fox news made its bones on conceit. They want you to think they have an insider's scoop on everything. Hasn't that worn thin already?
Tucker Carlson was right when he said Chauvin trial viewers saw a lynching, but he mixed up the victims. Chauvin lynched George Floyd, and then got a fair trial and was convicted. Carlson's attempt to portray Chauvin as a victim shows Carlson to be every bit as depraved and inhuman as Chauvin was that day. Meanwhile, Limbaugh and Goebbels are laughing in hell.
The Rethugs simply went to "Plan B" - Threat of "riots" cowed the jury since clearly on the video Chauvin was innocent. There was a "Plan Q" - by Marjorie Taylor Greene, lying that the streets of DC were empty, expecting a verdict reaction. The BLM Protests last year were not riots. They were protests. Many instances of property damage - and a couple of murders - have been laid at the feet of White Supremacists who hoped to blame such disasters on the protestors. They have a January 6 problem, obviously. THAT was a riot, that was murder, that was chaos. So the fervent hope that Chauvin would've gone the other way so they could other sided the insurrection. As it is, National Guard were at the ready - the Guard that was nowhere to be found on Jan 6 until quite late.
Fox isn't content with whipping up white hate. They want a race war.
Those who advertise on Fox must be held liable.
Well said, Eric. As always. #BLM
Name a loyal republican who IS for America?
Biden's success and popularity so far, as well as the potential progress ahead, must be driving Fox executives bonkers. The network's further turn to the right reaks of desperation.
It's all so amazing and predictable when it comes to Fox News. I wonder what Tucker Carlson's take would have been had Chauvin been a black police officer who snuffed out a white George Floyd. I think we all know the answer.
And the FOX cheese stands alone. Limburger imo. What happens to FOX as it’s audience ages into oblivion or somehow figures out the cruel ruse. Tucker Carlson is an unconscionably smug and hate filled man. I agree with Eric, they should have taken a pass on this one. Despicable.
The circular logic of the Republicans and their media enablers is a perpetual motion machine that reaffirms itself every trip around. The cat in the box might be alive or dead, but they have reasons to be pissed about any outcome. So the circle is complete. Schrodinger's Party. You never know what excuse they'll use but the cat is always dead.
