Tucker Carlson defends statutory rape, labels
Britney Spears a ´wh**e´, defends polygamist
cult leader Warren Jeffs and calls women

Unearthed radio clips have revealed a number of sexist, misogynistic and perverted remarks by Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson. The clips compiled and published Sunday by Media Matters For America were recorded back when Carlson was a regular commentator on the shock jock radio program ´Bubba the Love Sponge´ between 2006 and 2011. For about an hour each week, Carlson would call into the show and weigh in on current events, often sharing controversial opinions in vulgar terms. On several occasions the conservative commentator defended underage marriage and statutory rape while making crude comments about minors exploring their sexuality. He also frequently employed misogynistic

Tucker, you got some ´splainin´ to do in this #METOO era. But then, as a shock jock, what else was he expected to say? Howard Stern set the bar so low in the sewer way before Tucker came along.

Im sure whatever he said was done in the spirit of satyrical pithy comedy. Trying to be Andrew Dice Clay and Henny Youngman and Howard Stern all rolled into one. Who freakin cares anyway. Get over it and get a life.

I think I like Tucker even more than I did before. He sounds like a regular, blue collar, down to earth kinda guy.
His comments (although on an adult radio show) sound just like the gritty, knee slapping conversations a group of my close couples friends have when we go camping, having a few drinks, sitting around the camp fire or around the table playing cards with no kids around.
When its just close fiends, even in mixed company, people tend to cut loose and get real about real life stuff and the PC filter falls away. Sounds pretty normal, like let your hair down and don´t be a prude kind of reality check to me.

That was then, this is now. Ask any "lib" and if some comment by one of their "heroes" is found to be non PC that´s what they´ll say. People change is the mantra by them.

WOW! I´m so surprised by all the thumbs up I got on #6. I thought someone would chew my head off.
So, I have to make a follow-up comment.
#8 - I know Tucker Carlson came from a wealthy family and grew up in Commiefornia. He has been my favorite commentator for the last few years and I think he is the best debater on TV. I agree with most everything he says.

Incidentally, some of you who have read my comments before may know a little about my background.
One of our best couple friends I was refering to is a rabid Liberal Leftist teacher. Her fiancé is a Trumper like me. We all go camping and shooting together and our late night talk gets a little salty sometimes. We all get along great and can happily debate issues. We all became shooting buddies and (embarrassingly) she beats me regularly at the shooting tree (not easy).
When Libs aren´t in a group, they can become ALMOST "normal".
I don´t know how those two get along at home together. LOL

Most of what he said was true. What exactly are we supposed to say when it is what most people think anyway? By the way 16 is not underaged in many places. And the muslims are very big on arranged marriages so how do we deal with that one? They also accept child brides. How about whole countries where arranged marriages are acceptable? There are a number that come to mind. As far as Britney and Paris well, everyone has their opinion on those two so what.

Media Matters was created by the Clintons, I recall.
And their specialty is to take comments out of context.
Rape, for example, used to be limited in describing violent sexual intercourse.
Statutory rape is consensual sex, but with one of the two participants under aged, with underaged defined arbitrarily by the state.
Date rape is somewhat mushy in definition. It even extends to women who, days or weeks after engaging in coitus with their date, decide it was not consensual.

This is not about what Tucker Carlson said. This is about digging up dirt on conservative radio and TV personalities in order to silence their conservative voices. They have been trying this with Rush Limbaugh for 30 years and they will never give up. So they will take whomever they can get as consolation prizes.

Make no mistake, this is about silencing conservatism.

These tapes were not "unearthed". Tucker openly called the show on a weekly basis up until he replaced Greta Van Susteren. Bubba Clemm got a kick out of the preppie Tucker getting down to the male junior high school level. It was all silly and there were a lot of women who listened and laughed out loud. It was Bubba´s wife that was in the infamous Hulk Hogan sex tape, so this looks like more TMZ stuff than news.

Another Brit publication minding our business. At around the same time, during her husband’s presidency, HRC called one of her husband’s aides a “f***ing Jew bast**d.” Any comments about that, DM? Carlson has a talk show while Hillary has real power. Rumor has it that BHO has a few skeletons in with the winter coats and Muslim worship outfits. Any news there? Did the DM, The Guardian, The Times of London, or even Hello! look into them? What about the fake SSN or his mother registering little Barry Soetero as a Muslim at an Indonesian madrasa? When/why did Barry Arabicize his name? Who paid for his elite and expensive education? Were his college grades high enough to warrant admission to Harvard Law? Any investigations into those and countless other puzzlers? Why not?

I get the impression that he was the comic relief caller for that show, intentionally saying scripted outrageous things as part of a character he was playing.

I doubt that any of this was just his personal views.

New York Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reportedly hired a top Hollywood talent agency and explored a possibility of writing a book, though the deal appears to have gone nowhere. Ocasio-Cortez, the self-described Democratic Socialist who got into Congress after defeating prominent Democrat Joe Crowley in her district in November, has come to symbolize the party’s leftward movement. Ocasio-Cortez retained the talent agency Creative Artists Agency (CAA) and held meetings earlier this year about potentially writing a book, the Daily Beast reported.

Donald Trump has tweeted a Game of Thrones-themed poster just moments after the completion of a press conference in which the attorney general cleared him of conspiring with Russia. "No collusion, no obstruction. For the haters and the radical left Democrats - GAME OVER," reads the message, which is written in font reminiscent of that used on the popular HBO fantasy drama. The poster, which also features an image of Mr Trump turned away and surrounded by smoke, appears an attempt by the president to preempt the upcoming release of Robert Mueller´s report on the Trump campaign´s links to Russia.

Search and rescue teams found wreckage from a crashed Japanese F-35 stealth fighter in the Pacific Ocean close to northern Japan, and are scouring the waters for the missing pilot, authorities said on Wednesday. The aircraft, less than a year old, was the first F-35 assembled in Japan and was aloft for only 28 minutes on Tuesday before contact was lost, a defense official said. The plane had logged a total of 280 hours in the air, he added.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) issued a statement Friday tearing into President Donald Trump over the Mueller report, declaring he was “sickened” by its findings. Romney wrote, in a statement posted to Twitter, that it was “good news” Mueller’s team found insufficient evidence to charge Trump with conspiring with Russia to influence the 2016 election. “The business of government can move on,” he said. “Even so, I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President,” Romney continued.

The New York Yankees‘ anti-racism efforts have extended to pulling from their seventh-inning stretch a famous recording of the legendary Kate Smith singing “God Bless America.” Not because anyone has complained that the song is racist, but because Smith recorded other racially-insensitive standards from and during the Jim Crow era. The Yankees pulled Smith’s “God Bless America” from the rotation at the start of the season, but the New York Daily News reported the reason Thursday—“the Yankees were made aware of Smith’s history of potential racism.” According to the Daily News, the “potential racism” of which

A detailed report from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III said investigators struggled with both the legal implications of investigating President Trump for possible obstruction of justice and the motives behind a range of his most alarming actions, from seeking the ouster of officials to ordering a memo that would clear his name. [SNIP] “if we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, we are unable to reach that judgment.”

The Flyers wasted little time in following the Yankees lead. A day after the Daily News reported the Yankees had stopped playing Kate Smith’s 1939 recording of “God Bless America” in the middle of the seventh inning over her racist lyrics, the NHL’s Flyers made the same call. And took the extra step of covering a statue in her honor outside the Wells Fargo Center. “We have recently become aware that several songs performed by Kate Smith contain offensive lyrics that do not reflect our values as an organization,” the Flyers said in a statement. “As we continue to look

Mayor Pete Buttigieg acknowledged that he would face challenges as an openly gay presidential candidate if he ultimately faced President Donald Trump in the general election. “I’m from Indiana, I’m gay as a — I don’t know, think of something really gay — that’s how gay I am,” he said in an interview with TMZ’s Harvey Levin.Levin warned Buttigieg that Trump campaign would most certainly turn homophobic. “I’m used to bullying,” Buttigieg replied. “I think you confront it, initially, and move on.” He said that as a presidential candidate he would focus on calling out Trump’s behavior but remain intent

MSNBC political analyst Zerlina Maxwell criticized conservative-leaning Christians for not being "kinder" and said that South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg is "demonstrating how to actually be a Christian," after the 2020 presidential hopeful shrugged off protesters in Iowa last night. "I think that we are going to see a number of protests. Anti-abortion protesters are going to show up at events throughout this primary," she said on MSNBC Live. "I have no doubt. So I think it´s a test for Democrats, including Mayor Pete, about how they can handle that type of direct adversity."

A frank discussion turned nasty at an Ohio gas station where a quartet allegedly accused of stealing hot dogs went on a rampage. Four women were caught on video attacking a man with everything they could get their hands on when he stepped in to stop them from beating up another female customer, according to Cam Dancy, who posted the video on YouTube and spoke to Cleveland’s 19 News. “I know the video makes it look like he was trying to fight them, but they were actually jumping him,” Dancy said. “They were throwing trash cans and the windshield

Former Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake will not back President Donald Trump’s re-election and will likely support the Democratic nominee, he said in an appearance on CBS This Morning Wednesday. The frequent critic of Trump is a regular on the network morning show, hosting a segment called “Flake’s Take.” The discussion began with the announcement that Republican Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld would challenge President Trump in 2020 for the GOP nomination, about which Flake remarked “I hope he’s not the last Republican to enter the field.” When asked if he was going to support President Trump in 2020, Flake was

Friday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said the Republican Party has become “a cult of Trump’s personality.” Schiff said, “I think we have seen a wholesale abdication responsibility by the GOP leadership, by people like Kevin McCarthy, Mitch McConnell who essentially do whatever the president says. And that includes when the president wants to go around the Congress’ power of the purse. But it certainly includes issues of malfeasance, corruption within the administration. There’s been little or no appetite to stand up to the president in any meaningful way, and that really

During an on-air appearance Thursday, CNN host Chris Cuomo said that he wasn’t “going to let” people say that establishment media outlets, including his own, were misleading the public on the Trump-Russia story. “I’m not going to let people say that, you know, CNN or the media, or whatever, have been creating a false narrative,” Cuomo declared. “This report is plenty of proof that the questions that have been asked repeatedly were legit and that the answers we were getting consistently were not, especially once you get past the line of, ‘Hey, are you a felon?’ Once you move past
