“How do you lead a country you despise?” Tucker Carlson roared into a mess on the desk of Fox News on Tuesday night. Under the Sion River, like “Make the United States an important theme now,” the red-faced miracle was addressed to Sen. Tammy Duckworth and Rep. Ilhan Omar. The photos shouted and called them “destroyer” who plundered American culture.
Carlson called Duckworth “coward”, “idiot”, “cold hacker”, “fraud”, “deep stupidity” and “impressive”. He made many people defend her easily. No one is more powerful than the presumed Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. His spokesman accused Carlson of “pretending to be hate speech in journalism.” The New York Times described the attack on the news page as “the stain of a native”. US Senators Amy Klobuchar and Dick Durbin and the Washington Post and CNN columnists all defended Duckworth, who said that Carlson had ” Cross the road”.[d] line. “
Another topic of Carlson’s roar is Rep. Ilhan Omar, but his strong opposition is clearly not. Carlson beat her over and over again, known for her “some people do something” gait hysterical, and has never stopped since. “If anyone should love the United States, it is Ilhan Omar. This country saved her from a dirty Kenyan refugee camp,” Carlson said Tuesday, leaning on the racism of ungrateful immigrants In color. “But Ilhan Omar is not grateful. She hates us for this.”
Carlson continued for some time since then, but Duckworth’s refusal to participate in the performance of this market segment made him more angry, seeming to be satisfied with the promotion of Omar’s image, and regarded Omar as a trusted Bugman man with his Use with new goals. However, it is still worth mentioning that, although the clip is worth writing in the Times, Omar was only mentioned by the way. CNN’s condemnation-said “Carlson [Duckworth]The question of the literal meaning of his patriotism should be considered with the most reasonable standard of public etiquette. “- Omar was not mentioned at all. Didn’t Carlson comment on her?
Duckworth, a combat veteran and former US Army lieutenant, received the Purple Heart Medal after her Blackhawk helicopter was hit by a rocket grenade. She lost her legs and her right arm lost flexibility. The “old-fashioned” suggestion that she is a country that hates her is vulgar, which is obvious, and if I have to guess, Carlson’s provocation on Tuesday night was aimed at attracting Democrats and his CNN opponents to condemn him. The ratings are good: his show was the first place on Fox News in June, driven by the same sulfuric acid solution.
But his claim to Omar is no less than a comment on Duckworth, and since Omar was elected to Congress, it has not been in the past two years. Because her life is constantly threatened, she now needs additional security. But she rarely has a strong defense. When she was regarded as an anti-Semitic reputation, many of her political parties felt ambiguous about her support. Now, many people seem to be satisfied with pretending they are not there at all.
By the way, Carlson attacked Omar last night? She said: “We can’t stop at the criminal justice system.” “No matter where we find it, we must start to dismantle the entire oppression system.” That’s it. But at a strange moment, Carlson regarded the “oppression system” as a personal attack, and concluded that this comment meant that Omar called for “destroying the US economy and the US government system.” “We hate this country, we want a new country!” He told the audience what Omar said, mocking Congressmen and his own audience as stupid enough to believe his words, not the video he just played. (A few weeks ago, Fox News’ lawyers argued in court that Carlson’s own audience did not believe he reported the facts.)
The last time he used such a metaphor, Omar responded happily: “Don’t lie, it’s so funny to watch such a racist fool crying. My position in Congress is so interesting.” Faced with this, she gave firmness The image of determination. However, it is much greater than the strong rejection of Duckworth to allow passage of speeches like Tuesday. The Fox host used Omar as a pump, which may seem to be no longer newsworthy. Publicly defending American veterans may be politically safer than black Muslim refugees. But a big face like this threatens Omar and other immigrants like her. Carlson said violently in his show: “We have the right to defend our nation, our heritage and our culture,” the owner clearly pointed out whose country this is and who must be chased out. Such rhetoric threatens life, not just “public etiquette”, there is no time for political expediency.
