    I responded and you leap-frogged right over that. Now you just want to play the crickets game? How convenient.

    Not in the manner he's implying.

    And you know how I know that? his only response that was on topic was *before* I suggested he invest in a dictionary.

    He even fucking said "fair enough".


    His response was just further clarifying that he only wants to find articles that matched his preconceived notion.

    And my so-called preconceived notion is that Tucker Carlson's show isn't racist? Call it what you'd like and I'll call it what I'd like. As I mentioned, I don't watch the show. In the OP, I related Jason Whitlock's take on the NYT smear piece. Fair enough.

    I'm talking reality. Our borders suck. Our current world is crazy and dangerous. I'm no Marty Byrde. Error on the side of safety and security.

    No problem.

    Here's what you said: "You trusted a writer to be factual because it supports your preconceived notion. The same way that you can say the "dems killing babies" is not "far off" the mark, because that thought supports your (incorrect) preconceived notion."

    So then, be specific as to what you're perceiving my preconceived notion to be.

    So then you agree that Tucker is racist, and that Dems aren't "killing babies" and that Trump lost the election fair and square.

    No. Error on the side from freedom, health, and well being.

    Erring on the side of safety and security is ruling by fear. That's how authoritarians rule.

    You haven't watched the show? You didn't read the original article. That shows your take is a preconceived notion. You read Whitlock's piece and took his word for it. You seem to refuse to even give a single thought to the idea that Carlson's show is racist.

    There have been many reasons given in this thread why Carlson's show is racist. I've yet to see you give any reason why it's not.

    Carlson has uttered many horrendous and hateful things about immigrants, black people, etc. It's terribly racist.

    Democrats having abortions isn't killing babies. Republicans have abortions too, the hypocrites.

    Trump lost by over 8,000,000 votes. After all the accusations of voting fraud, no real cases of mass fraud have been found. Most cases of voting fraud I have seen come to light were done by Republicans, voting more than once, voting for dead relatives, etc. Even the far right recount in Arizona came back actually finding Biden won by more than he did. Biden won fair and square and Trump is a sore loser.

    That's how I figure.

    Much of what I read of the NYT (smear) piece that Sly posted (I'm unable to read the NYT as I'm not a subscriber) had to do with immigration, other countries, and the like. I did respond in that light. I think we have a terrible immigration policy, if that's what you want to call it. Being against a seeming free-for-all immigration mindset is not automatically calling someone a racist. Tucker's agains it, I'm against it, many, many Americans are against it. In terms of reading Whitlock's post, why wouldn't I take his word for it. He's a first-hand contributor on the Tucker Carlson Show. That would tell me he's involved with what goes on there. He did have this to say on the matter:

    "....Given the projects I’ve been involved in – ESPN’s "The Undefeated," Fox Sports’ "Speak for Yourself," and now "Fearless with Jason Whitlock" – it’s awfully difficult to suggest that I’m anti-black. If so, my career choices and actions are at odds with my alleged animus toward black people.

    The New York Times thinks so little of me, Delano Squires, and Royce White that it apparently didn’t cross the minds of one reporter or editor to ask us why we would contribute to the most racist show in cable news history...."

    It wasn't about that. It was about the term, "parinatal deaths" described in Maryland HB 626. That said, it was corrected by an amendment.
