Tucker Carlson: “I Think Personally (Michael Vick) Should Have Been Executed”

From Mediaite:

I’m finishing up a Vick piece where this video is embedded, but I had to post it while it’s shooting around the web. Carlson’s commentary needs be discussed and not in a way some would consider a “knee jerk reaction”.

What an idiot…

    Disgusting.

    This guy must really be miserable though. He’s married and anyone with any sense know he is as gay as Liberace. Its gonna be a shame when his lover comes out and tells it.

  2. Ron Glover says:

    I’m on the train coming home from SC watching this and I’m at a loss for words, I’m trying to avoid the knee-jerk reaction but crackas like this make it hard.

    But did he just deem himself a Christian and condemn a man to death all in the same sentence???

    I guess some things will never change.

    Miranda:

    You are a riot. Why you blowin’ up the Cover Wife?

    Mizzo:

    Carlson’s rant, I’m sure, is a mere reflection of his personal impotence. There will be a great deal more of this as more people learn that Vick has earned a starting Pro Bowl spot. The game last night probably knocked him out of the MVP race, but he’s still going to get tons of votes there. He might still win — who knows.

    I didn’t even know this guy was still working.

  4. Matthew Fudge says:

    If he’s a Christian, he should be familiar with the scripture that says, “Judge not, lest ye not be judged.” In other words, go SAT DOWN!!!

  5. Temple3 says:

    Against my better judgment, I watched a portion of this stoopid shit and heard Carlson say, “Why can’t the President acknowledge the value of an unexpressed thought?”

    TC is all over the place on this one. Like Palin. Throwin’ shit (literally) on the wall to see what sticks. And, his panel didn’t co-sign except for Psycho (La)Tina. Coutler El Segundo is way off base with her base. Folks are just checkin’ for looseness….they’re not actually listening.

    He leads with a thought that should have been unexpressed. He calls for capital punishment based on animal cruelty, but rails against Obama for the connection between policy and public comments. He pulls a Palin and talks about maitre d’s getting 2+ yrs for tax evasion. As if that means something.

    This is like a Tea Party meeting with a cutesy blue tie. I don’t think this calls for much more than a few bitch slaps whenever he shows his mug in public. Next.

  6. Miranda says:

    Oh for sure T3, I’m tellin you…..Tucker’s wife plays her role for appearance sake…….but the day will come, because it always does…when “Blaine” or “Marco” will go to some gossip outlet and tell it. Then Tucker and the missus will sit together holding hands before Barbara…no wait, not her…it will be Greta plasticface on Fox…they will talk about how they are working thru these trying times.

    Please…those mofos dont fool me. All that hostility and frothing of the mouth they get when talking about certain individuals…its not anger…its lust. So you been looking at Vick and now he just needs to die huh Tucker? LOL

  7. Ron Glover says:

    “Blaine or Marco” = LMAO!

  8. Bob Hamlin says:

    Tucker Carlson is a fool……but he is intitled to his opinon as the next person out there. There are a lot of people out there that share his opinion with or without the hyperbole. People that have posted on here say he is a “Christian” in one sentence and call him a “cracka” in the next. I would never use the term ” N-Word w/an A” for any reason…..Ron, you are too intelligent and have too good of a vocabulary, to have to use those words to get your point across. You may not agree with Tuckers thought, but you can’t judge, what is one person’s morality. What’s moral for him, may not be moral for you.

    Just my Opinion,

    Bob

  9. Miranda says:

    See y’all…when Tucker gets these….ummmm…”thoughts”…in his head, he gets violently angry.

    This is obviously Tucker Carlson trying to resuscitate his career with an eye-catching idiotic comment. What a tool. I’m no fan of what Vick did with the dogs, but execution for it? How dumb. If one wanted to, one could make a similar case that you should be executed if you step on a cockroach or swat a fly. Please.

  11. Arlene says:

    Yes, I’m sure Tucker Carlson wouldn’t want Vick executed if Vick were to approach him holding that big fat, juicy, pointed, thick…….FOOTBALL in his hand.

  12. Bob Hamlin says:

    Siting the Socialist website media matters is a joke of epic proportions….

  13. Mizzo says:

    HAHAHAHA! Arlene.

    I love you guys…and gals. :)

    Blaine or Marco….hilarious!

  14. Arlene says:

    LOL Hi Mizzo. Long time no see. Hope you had a great Christmas.

    I want to bend that prick over and smack that… butt, he just might enjoy it.

  15. Arlene says:

    Tucker is letting everyone know what he thinks the value of a black man’s life is worth. He needs to be slapped all about his head, face & neck.

  16. Temple3 says:

    Arlene:

    She’s sharp. We raised the same point here. Dogs mean different things, historically, to black folks (collectively, speaking) and white folks. Not everyone knows, but dogs were pivotal to support the terrorist tactics used by American whites as early as the 1600′s. Dogs and white supremacist terra terror go together. No other animal is as closely tied to the violence and brutality of white supremacy as the dog. Think Bull Connor. Of course, the dogs don’t have an ax to grind in this, they were dragged along for the ride. But a dog bite is a dog bite and your torn flesh cares little for the innocence of the dog.

    When I walk my dog, most black folk are very cautious and go out of their way to avoid the dog. White folks are just the opposite. Generally speaking, of course.

  17. Ron Glover says:

    Well spoken as usual Temple.

  18. sankofa says:

    I for one would not take this guy lightly. Whether he is pandering to his base of conservative, closeted homosexual, haters! SHITZUS like that will drop sound bites out into the ether so the Charles Manson’s of the world would hear the “word” then act to preserve the American way.

  19. Ron Glover says:

    @Sankofa, I alluded to this during Obama’s Presidential run when Hillary Clinton kept mentioning the assassination of Bobby Kennedy.

    I hope the NFL is thinking on your wavelength.

  20. Arlene says:

    @Temple: the Professor received beaucoup hate mail for 4 minutes of history lessons. Here’s her extended version from” The Nation:

    Michael Vick, Racial History and Animal Rights
    Melissa Harris-Perry
    December 30, 2010

    Last night I had one of those awful television moments that sometimes afflict those of us who spend part of our life in classroom where we have 90 minutes to discuss a topic and the other part of our life on television where we are constrained to four-minute analyses. On Wednesday evening I joined The Rachel Maddow Show to discuss the current flap surrounding Michael Vick and President Obama.

  21. MODI says:

    Great article by the Good Professor… which mirrors this and past discussions here.

    This is only going to get louder as Phile goes farther…

  22. Arlene says:

    I’m looking forward to Mizzo’s piece on this too.

  23. HarveyDent says:

    I’m sorry, MODI, but that article was a bunch of mealy-mouthed mush. I understand the Good Professor was trying to elaborate on the position she took on TV last night but I’m going to say this issue of animal cruelty is much more cut and dried than she is letting on. I’m not heartless and I won’t stand for any dog or other animal to be needlessly abused but an animal is an animal and people who equate them with humans need to get a grip. Seeing baby seals clubbed or reading about horses being destroyed saddens me but nowhere as much as I’m saddened reading about a prisoner freed by DNA after doing most of his life behind bars for something he didn’t do or seeing an Iraqi child crippled by a cluster bomb. I’m just saying there needs to be some perspective in this country and while I’m just speaking for myself I’ll say while I have no real like or dislike for dogs I’m not going to shed too many tears if Ol’ Yeller catches a bad one and shuffles off this mortal coil.

    However, if it came down to saving Ol’ Yeller’s life or Tucker Carlson then I hope that Christian, Carlson, has a good turnout for his homegoing services.

    Know you guys don’t like the language but that pompous bastard can eat a dikk.

  24. MODI says:

    HD, I think that Professor Harris-Perry would agree about how cut and dried this is. But as a professor she is also using the issue as a teachable moment to talk about American history, the racial context of dogs, and the hypocrisy.

    In the original link, she added an original PPT slide on the issue which she introduces into a veterinarian class. But I do understand the sentiment that if you need 43 slides to understand the effedupedness, there are bigger problems going on.

  25. Arlene says:

    I concur, MODI. Initially, my thoughts were, she’s preaching to the choir. I think the true desire to learn and understand requires an openess, willingness to learn and understand.

    I had to empy my heart and mind of jugments, opinions, and anger, yes, anger, to take in the full historical context of this issue. her.

    The professor shared some of what me and my family have experienced, so I could relate to it, however, I couldn’t fully articulate it as clearly as I came away with a richer understanding than I initially had, and I was able to articulate the message to friends and aquaintanes with a neutrality that did not stiffle or shutdown discussion.

    This shit runs deep and wide, and until white folks can come to the table with it, eat, digest, and release it, the shit is stuck.

  26. HarveyDent says:

    MODI & Arlene

    I’m sorry but the older I get the less patience I have for “teachable” moments for what is common sense the world over. It was wrong for Vick to kill dogs but it is just as wrong for people like Carlson and those like him to throw things out there which does nothing to move the historical narrative forward but only continues to take this country back to a time too many White people refuse to honestly face. Black people have to face America’s willful amnesia because we live with it every day and I’m one Black person who is tired of trying to teach people who refuse to learn me and mine are human.

  27. Arlene says:

    HarveyDent, nowhere in my comments did I let white folks off the hook. Carslon should be called out, and to reamin silent is not an option for me. If someone is interested in addressing the issue, bring it and I’ll discuss.

    “This shit runs deep and wide, and until white folks can come to the table with it, eat, digest, and release it, the shit is stuck.”

  28. MODI says:

    Arlene, very deep and wide indeed…

    HD, while I still appreciate what Prof was trying to do, your stance is sincerely felt… Ultimately, I think the decision of when to engage and “teach”, when not to, and how it impacts one’s own dignity or sanity is a deeply personal one

  29. TC says:

    As usual, if only the TSF commenters ruled the world……it would be a much saner, more humane world.

  30. TC says:

    For what it’s worth HD, I don’t begrudge you your frustration at the ignorance of white folks (of which I’m one). It shouldn’t be that hard to try and understand things from another’s point of-view. I think, like MODI, that it was an attempt by Dr. HP to capitalize on a teachable moment. That said, if it’s so hard for us white folks to understand that only 8% of Haiti has been restored to its pre-earthquake state, or that 5 million have died in the Congo in the last 10-12 years, while white Americans lose their ish over one man’s dogfighting accusations, I don’t begrudge anyone for losing their patience with ignorant white Americans.
