Tucker Carlson is under fire for comments he made over 25 years ago. About women. On a radio show called “Bubba the Love Sponge…”
The KrASShats have initiated this attack (brothers Ed and Brian Krassenstein of Media Matters), and in my opinion it is unwarranted. As a woman, I can say nothing he said offended me, and actually I can laughably agree with most of it.
First of all, the radio show is much like “Howard Stern.” Raunchy comments and edgy opinions are wanted, praised and welcome. NBC hired Howard Stern as a judge on “America’s Got Talent” a few years ago…it would take a decade to go through all the inappropriate things he’s said. They’ve really got some nerve targeting Tucker like this. Stop the War on Men, already!
Tucker replied to the attack:
“Media Matters caught me saying something naughty on a radio show more than a decade ago,” he said. “Rather than express the usual ritual contrition, how about this: I’m on television every weeknight live for an hour. If you want to know what I think, you can watch. Anyone who disagrees with my views is welcome to come on and explain why.”
Some of the comments in question:
“I am not defending underage marriage at all,” Carlson said in a clip from 2009. “I just don’t think it’s the same thing exactly as pulling a child from a bus stop and sexually assaulting that child.”
He spoke of the Rape Shield Law:
“If I’m alleging rape, I have the protection of anonymity. I can say whatever I want while hiding behind anonymity, while the person I accused, whether he’s guilty or not, has his life destroyed. That’s totally unfair … I mean, we’ve done a couple of shows on this, and we always had these feminists on who kind of, “Well, because no one would ever report rape.” Really? I don’t know. Women seem to be adults to me. I mean, in other words, if you are grievously injured by another person, it’s not your fault. I don’t understand why, if you’re an adult, you just can’t get up and say, “This is what the person did to me.”In the days of False Accusations, I completely agree with him on this one. Seeing so many good guys get stabbed with accusations is absolutely ridiculous and takes away from real victims. It is used as a way to accuse someone, without need of proof, of a heinous crime, they have no way of defending themselves against. It’s ridiculous.
I have to agree with both these statements ha….”primitive” here: he goes on to say most women want a strong man….true true true (for me, anyway….nothing turns me off more than a Soy Boy).
Sex workers, at large, are “slutty and pathetic.” Women, in general, are “extremely primitive.”
He mentioned Britney Spears and Paris Hilton possibly being “the biggest white whores in America,” which at the time was probably true…I’d have to add Kamala Harris to this list, and give Oprah Winfrey an honorable mention as the Nation’s Most Successful Pimp….does that make me a misogynist? Or am I just a bitch because I’m a woman talking about another woman in a not-so-pleasing light….
I think reacting to these comments with the word “misogynistic” is inaccurate. Raunchy, opinionated, truthful perhaps. No one is going to like everything someone says…you may be shaking your head at me RIGHT NOW in fact, but saying things and DOING things are completely different.
Sure, if a woman walks into work and people cat-call her, and say she looks great today, she may take offense…but then again, she might just say thank you, and go on with her day……It’s sad that in today’s society, a woman can’t get a compliment from a man anymore without the man being hauled into HR the next day…
Now, if they grabbed her butt, and told her to go make them some coffee, she probably would not like that….
If I had issues like Lady Gaga and other people in the entertainment industry had, then yeah I would call that misogynistic….men expecting something from women so the woman can get ahead in life. Men treating women in that way, as lesser human beings, simply because they can.
Lady Gaga: “When producers — unlike Mark — start to act like, ‘you’d be nothing without me,’ for women especially, since those men have so much power, they can have women in a way that no other men can,” the singer explains. “And then I walk in the room, and it’s like eight times out of 10, I’m put in that category, and they expect from me what those girls have to offer, when that’s just not at all what I have to offer. That’s not what I’m here for.”
Simply stating an opinion or a joke about women should not be considered misogyny…people need to learn to distinguish between entertainment, jokes, and real-life. Chill OUT! Additionally: people need to realize that 25 years ago, we were able to say things like this much more freely and without consequence, since there wasn’t an abundance of SJWs with sticks up their asses….
