Chasten Buttigieg Has The Perfect Clapback To Tucker Carlson’s Attacks On His Husband

Earlier this week, Fox News host Tucker Carlson proved yet again what a willfully ignorant bigot he is, attacking Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg for daring to have an opinion on the mass shooting at Club Q, an LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado.

According to Carlson, Buttigieg didn’t bother to come out of the closet until his thirties. Oh, and he also accused Buttigieg of lying about his sexual orientation to gain entrance into the U.S. military, where he served with honor and distinction.

Specifically, Carlson told his equally bigoted viewers:

“No, Pete Buttigieg wants to talk about identity. He always wants to talk about identity. And the funny, ironic thing is that until just a few years ago, Buttigieg wouldn’t even admit that he was gay. He hid that and then lied about it for reasons he has never been asked to explain. Why not?

“But whatever. Now he is happy to use his sexual orientation as a cudgel to bash you repeatedly in the face into submission. Quote, here’s his latest, ‘If you’re a politician or media figure who sets up the LGBTQ community to be hated and feared, not because any of us who ever harmed you, but because you find it useful that don’t you dare act surprised when this kind of violence follows.’”

That led Chasten Buttigieg, who is married to the transportation secretary, to tell CNN host Don Lemon:

“I would just love for him to follow Secretary Pete on Twitter. He can follow along all of the things that are happening at the Department.

“I just think these people, again, with the megaphones, they have a bit platform. And rather than focusing on real issues, people’s lives – making them better, they decided to focus on hate.”

Chasten also explained exactly why his husband hid his sexual orientation while he chose to serve his country:

“My husband served under ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell,’ which means that he would have been discharged from the American military had he come out of the closet.”

But it was what Chasten Buttigieg said next that’s the perfect antidote to the narrowminded musings of Carlson and his ilk.

“Remember, this type of rhetoric is easy. It’s so easy to attack people and go on your talk show and fire people up about something that’s not actually happening.

“I love my husband deeply. I know that he’s a committed public servant and he has everyone’s best interest at heart.”

Tucker Carlson’s Latest Attack On Pete Buttigieg: He ‘Lied’ About Being Gay

Fox News host Tucker Carlson is absolutely livid because he claims that Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg didn’t “even admit that he was gay” until a few years ago and “lied about it for reasons he has never been asked to explain.”

Carlson made his remarks in reference to the mass shooting at an LGBTQ bar in Colorado Springs that left five dead and dozens of others injured.

“Pete Buttigieg, of course, couldn’t pass up a moment like this. It’s not like Pete Buttigieg wants to talk about how things are going over at the Transportation Department, which he supposedly runs. Short answer not well.”

That led Carlson to go on an extended rant about Buttigieg in which he accused the transportation secretary of using the Colorado shooting to advance his political aims:

“No, Pete Buttigieg wants to talk about identity. He always wants to talk about identity. And the funny, ironic thing is and the tell just a few years ago, Buttigieg wouldn’t even admit that he was gay. He hid that and then lied about it for reasons he has never been asked to explain. Why not?

“But whatever. Now he is happy to use his sexual orientation as a cudgel to bash you repeatedly in the face into submission. Quote, here’s his latest, ‘If you’re a politician or media figure who sets up the LGBTQ community to be hated and feared, not because any of us who ever harmed you, but because you find it useful that don’t you dare act surprised when this kind of violence follows.'”

The Fox host concluded:

“Buttigieg, now that you’re admitting you’re gay after lying about it, since we’re talking about identity. What do you have to say about that? Well, nothing. Weirdly, Pete Buttigieg hasn’t said anything, nor has he apologized for attacking other people on false pretenses.”

As with nearly everything said by Carlson and the other prime time hosts on Fox, the premise of his argument against Buttigieg is based on bullshit and outright lies that have absolutely no grounding in fact. Instead, they emanate from a place of hatred, homophobia, and self-loathing.

Buttigieg has indeed addressed why he was so reluctant to come out before he did, writing:

“I was well into adulthood before I was prepared to acknowledge the simple fact that I am gay. It took years of struggle and growth for me to recognize that it’s just a fact of life, like having brown hair, and part of who I am.”

And Buttigieg also explained why he remained closeted while serving in the military, noting:

“For individual servicemembers, that meant hiding who they were from the people they trusted with their lives. In some cases it meant living a life that was less than whole.”

Poor Tucker. He can’t stand the fact that Pete Buttigieg is more accomplished than he’ll ever be.

Tucker Carlson Spews A Racist Rant About The Migrants Relocated To Martha’s Vineyard

Fox News host Tucker Carlson is absolutely ecstatic that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) sent 50 Venezuelan and Colombian migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, and to celebrate he went on a disgusting racist rant in which he suggested the migrants could have a “goat barbecue” with Barack and Michelle Obama.

Back in July, Carlson had urged GOP governors to send migrants “in large numbers” to to the Massachusetts resort, and now that DeSantis has done that, Carlson is celebrating, remarking on his show:

“The Vineyard is going to need to construct shantytowns for all these new people. But we can’t call them ‘shantytowns,’ obviously that’s demeaning. So we’re going to call them ‘townships’ after Obama’s favorite country, and then we’re going to give them dignified names that suggests some kind of victory over adversity. Mandela, Cesar Chavezville, Kamalapolis.”

Of course, Carlson’s latest disgusting comments should come as no surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention. After all, this is the very same Tucker Carlson who has been pushing “replacement theory” on his show for years, as MSNBC noted in May:

Coined by a French scholar more than a decade ago, the term was quickly taken up globally by white supremacists, for whom the theory now provides a single, overarching framework for ideas that had already been percolating for years. Last September, Media Matters reported that Carlson spent a year embarking on a “dedicated campaign to insert the ‘great replacement’ conspiracy theory … into mainstream Republican discourse.” Carlson has repeatedly used the language of replacement to suggest or directly argue that Democrats are orchestrating “demographic replacement” to gain political power. The day before the September Media Matters report, Carlson told his viewers that President Joe Biden aimed to “replace ‘legacy Americans’” and “change the racial mix of the country” for political gain.

If you ever wonder why there’s so much hatred and vitriol in this country, you don’t have to look any further than Fox News and Tucker Carlson for an explanation.

Tucker Carlson Is Suddenly Calling Kamala Harris ‘Carmela’ And It’s Just Plain Creepy

It’s been clear for quite some time that Fox Host Tucker Carlson is a talentless twit who traffics in bigotry, hatred, and racism for his own personal and professional benefit.

But Carlson also seems to delight in deliberately mispronouncing the names of those he disagrees with politically, the sort of juvenile behavior that you’d see in a third-grader taunting a classmate.

On his show Wednesday evening, Carlson was discussing the future of the Democratic Party, according to Mediaite, when he again resorted to twisting the name of Vice President Kamala Harris:

“The Democratic Party at this point is a cartel that exists only to perpetuate itself and the elderly mediocrities who run and benefit from it. All of them. Carmela Harris is only 57 years old. She’s a child by the standards of her party, but she still talks like a dementia patient, slowly and incomprehensibly.”

Carlson then played a clip of Harris talking about mail-in ballots and followed it by remarking:

“We don’t mean to beat up on Carmela Harris, who’s obviously our favorite for the Democratic nomination next cycle, but she is a perfect distillation of everybody in power in the Democratic Party.”

Carlson has done the same thing with other names, though he seems to do it most often when it involves people of color. For example:

  • Calling Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) “Sandy Cortez”
  • Referring to CNN anchor Don Lemon as “Don LaMonne”
  • Deliberately flubbing the name of Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson and calling her Kentaji Brown Jackson

It seems only fitting that Carlson should get a taste of his own medicine, but how could we possibly mangle his name and make it an epithet? There’s got to be a way we can turn the tables on F*cker Carlson. And F*cker deserves some payback, don’t you think?

If you think of a fitting name for F*cker Carlson, be sure and pass it along so can all enjoy it.

Tucker Carlson Attacked Jon Stewart As ‘Really Short’ And Regretted It When Stewart Clapped Back

 

Fox News host Tucker Carlson thought he’d attack former “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart over Stewart’s advocacy on behalf of veterans who were exposed to toxic burn pits while serving in Afghanistan and Iraq.

HuffPost notes that Carlson made his hateful remarks on his show:

On Thursday night, Carlson fired off a series of highly personal and deeply weird insults at Stewart for his advocacy of healthcare for U.S. veterans. Stewart, Carlson said, looks “like a guy who lives in the men’s room at your public library, eating imaginary insects out of the air” and “a homeless mental patient.”

“He’s shrieking and disheveled and very short,” Carlson said. “Really short. Too short to date. Was he always that short?”

But someone should have warned Carlson that it’s a bad idea to attack a comedian, especially one as beloved as Jon Stewart, and certainly not when he’s advocating on behalf of veterans.

Stewart quickly clapped back at Carlson.

Others on Twitter then joined the debate and also took turns slamming Carlson.

Memo to Tucker Carlson: You should probably stick to polishing Donald Trump’s butt. At least you’re good at that.
