Fox News Hypocritically Whines That ‘Ambushing’ Tucker Carlson In Montana Was ‘Totally Inexcusable’

According to Fox News, no one should ever approach one of their employees and exercise his or her First Amendment right to speak their mind the way a man in Montana did over the weekend when he ran across Fox host Tucker Carlson in a fly fishing shop.

The interaction, which featured Carlson and a man identified as Dan Bailey, went viral online, with Bailey telling Carlson:

“You are the worst human being known to mankind. I want you to know that.”

Fox News gave a statement to Mediaite regarding the video in which they wrote:

“Ambushing Tucker Carlson while he is in a store with his family is totally inexcusable — no public figure should be accosted regardless of their political persuasion or beliefs simply due to the intolerance of another point of view.”

The problem with that statement is that it could not possibly be more hypocritical, as Amanda Terkel of HuffPost notes. Terkel was ambushed by Jesse Watters of Fox News back in 2009 and recalled that event:

“Fox News is outraged when their big-name hosts are ambushed, but it is totally fine with its big-name hosts doing the ambushing. Ambushes were a central part of the show of Bill O’Reilly, who was Fox’s most prominent host for years. (He left in 2017, under the disgrace of a series of sexual harassment allegations.)

“Fox News also continued to promote Jesse Watters, O’Reilly’s henchman who went out and did many of the ambushes. In 2009, O’Reilly sent Watters out to harass me while I was on vacation for the weekend in Virginia.”

Terkel complained to Fox when Watters harassed her. What was their reaction? Bupkis. They gave her silence in return for her complaint:

“There was no outrage that I was accosted while going about my personal life, simply because O’Reilly didn’t like that I pointed out that he had made gross comments about a woman who was raped.”

Apparently, Fox only gives a damn when one of their propagandists is approached and told how the public feels. That’s one hell of a double standard, but it’s to be expected from conservatives, who are the biggest bunch of whiny-assed little daffodils in the world. They can dish it out, but when it comes back in their direction, they get their feelings hurt and complain.

Attention Fox News and Tucker Carlson: As Harry Truman once said, If you can’t stand the heat, get the hell out of the kitchen!

Tucker Carlson Gets Called Out As The ‘Worst Human’ While On Vacation In Montana

Fox New host Tucker Carlson is in Montana for a vacation, and he got an earful of what people really think about him when a man approached him and let loose with invectives.

The man in the video (which is quickly going viral) is named Dan Bailey, and he told Carlson:

“You are the worst human being known to mankind. I want you to know that.”

Bailey then posted the video to Instagram, along with this message, which goes even further in spelling out how he feels about Carlson, who in recent weeks has been telling viewers not to get the COVID-19 vaccine:

“It’s not everyday you get to tell someone they are the worst person in the world and really mean it! What an asshole!

“This man has killed more people with vaccine misinformation, he has supported extreme racism, he is a fascist and does more to rip this country apart than anyone that calls themselves an American.”

Carlson has also said that anyone who sees a child with a protective mask on should call child protective services and report the parents, exhorting viewers:

“Masks have always been incompatible with a free society. Masks are for the guilty. They’re signifiers of shame and submission.

“Next time you see someone in a mask on the sidewalk or on the bike path, do not hesitate, ask politely but firmly, would you please take off your mask? Science shows there is no reason for you to be wearing it. Your mask is making me uncomfortable. We should do that, and we should keep doing it until wearing a mask outside is roughly as socially acceptable as lighting a Marlboro in an elevator. It’s repulsive.”

This country is facing a pandemic of the unvaccinated at the moment, with coronavirus cases rising most rapidly in red states such as Arkansas, Florida, and Missouri. The Delta variant of the disease is also much stronger and more deadly than previous iterations of COVID.

But despite that, Tucker Carlson and others at Fox are spreading lies and conspiracy theories about the vaccine. They have blood on their hands, and yet they don’t seem to give a damn about the lives they’ve destroyed.

Dan Bailey is absolutely right: Tucker Carlson is the worst person in the world, and he deserves to hear that each and every day of his life.

Fox News Host Says Russia Now Has A Jet Than Can Fly At ‘Twice The Speed Of Light’

During Wednesday morning’s edition of “Fox & Friends,” host Jillian Mele reported that Russia now has a fighter jet that can fly at “nearly twice the speed of light.”

According to Mele:

“The jet features stealth characteristics and the ability to cruise at supersonic speeds. The new aircraft is smaller than other Russian fighter jets but can fly at a speed of almost twice the speed of light.

“The new design can also be converted into an unpiloted version.”

Co-host Steve Doocy then chimed in:

“Unpiloted. so you would control it by a computer or a person running it just like a video game.”

Mele:

“That boggles my mind.”

It boggles her mind? That would require that she actually have a mind instead of just being a paid news reader who reiterates whatever’s on the teleprompter.

As Albert Einstein explained with his theory of relativity, nothing can travel at a speed that’s faster than the speed of light.

Space.com explains Einstein’s thinking on the subject of traveling faster than light:

“Even using the most precise measurements possible, the speed of light remains the same for an observer standing still on the face of the Earth as it does for one traveling in a supersonic jet above its surface. Similarly, even though Earth is orbiting the sun, which is itself moving around the Milky Way, which is a galaxy traveling through space, the measured speed of light coming from our sun would be the same whether one stood inside or outside of the galaxy to calculate it. Einstein calculated that the speed of light doesn’t vary with time or place.”

Even worse for Mele is that Fox itself totally disproves what she said, with their website reporting:

“The prospective warplane, marketed under the project name Checkmate, has one engine and is designed to be smaller and cheaper than Russia’s latest Su-57 two-engine stealth fighter, also built by Sukhoi. It can fly at a speed of 1.8-2 times the speed of sound, has a range of 3,000 kilometers (1,864 miles) and a payload of 7,400 kilograms (16,300 pounds), the jet’s makers said.”

Later today, perhaps Jillian Mele will tell us that gravity isn’t real and Sir Isaac Newton was wrong.

Fox News Hosts Say The South Should Secede From The United States – Again

Earlier this week, a poll from Bright Line Watch was released which showed that 66% of Southern Republicans are in favor of leaving the United States and forming their own country. 50% of independents said they agreed with such a sentiment. Only 20% of Democrats were in favor.

AL.com reported on the disturbing new data:

“Overall, support for leaving the Union among Southern states – listed as Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina – was 44%.”

That poll was the jumping off point for a discussion on Fox News according to Crooks and Liars, with hosts Greg Gutfeld and Lisa Boothe suggesting it might be a good idea if the South seceded from the country, just like they did to touch off the Civil War in 1860, with Gutfeld remarking:

“Lisa, I am very pro-splitting the country as a trial separation.

“Why not try it for two years, red and blue? Let the Democrats do their Democrat thing, and the Republicans do the Republican thing, and see what happens, who moves where. What could happen?”

Granted, Gutfeld appeared to be making his comments more than a bit tongue in cheek, but it prompted Boothe to second the idea:

“I’m probably going to get myself in trouble with this, but like, would it be the worst thing? I don’t know, I’m sick and tired of people who hate this country. I’m sick and tired of who say the flag is some sort of — the sign of evilness or oppression, who despise the country that we live in.”

She then added:

“I’m tired of the government now, you know, people like Biden want to weaponize the government, against people who supported Trump. So I mean, I don’t know, would it be the worst thing? Peacefully.”

Weaponize the government against people who supported Trump? You mean the thousands of shitbag domestic terrorists who stormed the Capitol and chanted about wanting to hang Vice President Mike Pence for daring to do his Constitutional duty? If prosecuting them to the full extent of the law is what has to be done, I’m willing to bet the vast majority of Americans are in favor of it.

Here’s a better idea: Let’s take all the insurrectionists and those who think Trump won the election and put them all on an enormous oil tanker ship and put them out to sea somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. They can start their own country wherever the tanker winds up landing.

Here’s the video from Fox News:

Donald Trump Elections Fox News WTF?!

Tucker Carlson Threatens Another Insurrection If Election ‘Audits’ Aren’t Believed

If you’re like most rational American television viewers, you don’t watch Fox News for the same reason you don’t eat out of the toilet.

And things are getting even more noxious and disturbing over at Fox, especially when it comes to the nightly ramblings and conspiracy theories of Tucker Carlson, who seems to be threatening that another insurrection much like the one that took place on January 6 at the U.S. Capitol is going to happen if Congress doesn’t agree to accept the results of the bogus “audits” taking place in states such as Arizona.

On his show, according to Media Matters, Carlson referenced what he dubbed “fraud” that had allegedly taken place in the counting of ballots in Fulton County, Georgia, telling viewers:

“We already know what happened. We’ve counted those same ballots four times. The election has been certified. Stop already,” Carlson said mockingly. “And that’s the argument that Fulton County has used in court to keep those ballots locked away in a warehouse. Except it’s not true. It now appears there actually was meaningful voter fraud in Fulton County, Georgia, last November. That is not a conspiracy theory; it’s true.”

No, it isn’t true. Not even a little bit.

Specifically, Carlson and other right-wing clowns have suggested that batches of ballots were double-scanned to increase the vote total for Democrats. But that lie has already been debunked on numerous occasions:

“Just as with prior conspiracy theories about the election in Georgia, this scrutiny on ballot scans in the initial count is conveniently ignoring a simple fact: There was already a manual hand recount of the 5 million paper ballots in the state, which corrected a few mistakes in local areas but did not significantly alter Biden’s victory in the state. As a result, the double-scanning of some small number of ballots in the initial count would no longer have an impact even in a very close race.”

According to Carlson, yet another audit is needed in Georgia. And if there isn’t one — if all the absurd demands of right-wing conspiracy theorists who cannot accept the results of the 2020 election are not met — there’s going to be another insurrection by crazies who refuse to accept certified facts:

“Without answers to legitimate questions like the one we just posed — and those are legitimate questions — democracy dies. People begin to understand that the system they’ve been told is on the level is in fact rigged, and when they believe that, God knows what they do next.”

That’s almost the same exact wording Carlson used to justify the Jan. 6 insurrection. He told viewers then:

“If people begin to believe that their democracy is fraudulent, if they conclude that voting is a charade, the system is rigged and it is run in secret by a small group of powerful, dishonest people who are acting in their own interests, then God knows what could happen.”

God knows why Tucker Carlson is allowed to remain on the airwaves and spew his dangerous, incendiary rhetoric. But as long as he is, none of us are safe.
