    Tucker can tell us all about how they took over the airports during the Revolutionary War.

    I think that Carlson has an implant that zaps him if he tells anything approaching the truth.

    “There was a bunch of bad stuff in the 1800s, but we don’t really talk about that (And that was mostly the Democrats’ fault, anyway).”

    I believe that Ftucker is due for an attitude readjustment — with extreme prejudice!!

    What’s sad is Republicans will read this cartoon as truthful and not satire.

    (Take-off, “Old Dan Tucker”) [partial]

    ”Fox Pundit Tucker”

    Fox pundit Tucker is a Tumpy fan,

    Takes his views from that lyin’ man

    Combs his hair so it slopes just so,

    And truth dies soon’s words from his lips do flow.

    .

    Spew out the lies, Fox pundit Tucker,

    Wail sourly like a good ol’ Trumper.

    Look so outraged as you stare at the cam’ra

    If you were a dog, you’d be Trump’s leg humper.

    Actually, trying to satirize the stupidity spewed by Ftucker Carlson and his ilk is like trying to Satirize Mad Magazine…

    Is there life after Faux News? I know there will be beef in a Big Mac as long as Trump is alive.

    Ftucker left out the slaves’ embrace of slavery: Lyle the Railroad crew leader (from ‘Blazing Saddles’): “Come on, boys. Where’s your spirit? I don’t hear no singing. When you was slaves, you sang like birds. Come on, how about a good ole n** work song?”

    I leave it to the late night hosts for my Carlson news. I wonder though if even they can do his stupidity justice.

    It’s no wonder that officially Fox declares that its news programs are for “entertainment” and not actual facts… and that nobody would believe Carlson anyway…

    Federal search warrant executed at Rudy Giuliani’s NYC apartment

    PUBLISHED WED, APR 28 2021 12:19 PM

    Federal investigators executed a search warrant at the Manhattan apartment of Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City who was the personal lawyer of former President Donald Trump, new reports said.

    The search was conducted as part of a criminal investigation into Giuliani’s dealings in Ukraine, The New York Times first reported.

    Federal prosecutors in New York last year were seeking approval from top officials at the Department of Justice to ask for a search warrant for Giuliani’s electronic communications, NBC News reported.

    A repost.

    Carlson’s diatribe is a useful data point for how American conservatism has transformed, especially in the Trump era, from a movement that (at least putatively) believes in limited government to one that primarily prizes marshaling the power of the state to punish those who disagree with it. With Trump in eclipse, Carlson is the most visible face of the new conservative movement.

    Although Carlson makes a lot of ridiculous claims in a short period in this clip, it is his comments about children that are most disturbing. After complaining that mask mandates imposed by the state are equivalent to living in North Korea, Carlson executes two athletic rhetorical maneuvers. First, he goes from describing mask wearing as excessive to describing it as abusive, and second, he elides the difference between a government mandate and a personal choice.

    One doesn’t need a lot of imagination to game out where this is going. Some viewers will take Carlson’s possibly arch exhortations to heart. They’ll call the police and child protective services. In most cases, authorities will ignore those calls. In some cases, especially if the callers repeatedly summon police as Carlson demands, they could be charged with filing false claims; it’s a good bet that neither he nor Fox News will be there to help them if they are. In other cases, encounters will end poorly for the innocent parents involved. The news is full of examples of how police called to respond to petty or wholly imagined offenses end up gravely injuring or even killing people. (Carlson believes Derek Chauvin was wrongly convicted.)

    (To be continued)

    (Concluded)

    But when government authorities fail to intervene—because, of course, no laws are being broken—Carlson’s fans may feel the moral obligation to take matters into their own hands, just like Edgar Maddison Welch, who stormed into a Washington, D.C., pizzeria heavily armed in 2016, because he wanted to prevent child abuse that he wrongly believed was occurring there. No one was hurt in that incident, though someone easily could have been. Welch spent about three years in prison.

    But Carlson doesn’t object to the state harassing people or exercising undue power. He delights in it, as long as the state is harassing the people he hates. The cruelty, as my colleague Adam Serwer has said, is the point. This is the lodestar of the Trump and post-Trump GOP, which values owning the libs above all—not merely rhetorically, but with the fist of government. Thus Trump asserted that he had the authority to override state and local coronavirus shutdowns (before hastily backtracking when it became clear that he had no such power). He sought to involve the federal government in decisions of colleges and universities in order to muzzle speech. And he celebrated police violence, even as he moaned that he was the victim of overzealous law enforcement.
