    Fun fact: Tucker Carlson, "the working-class hero", is an heir to the Swanson Frozen Foods fortune, worth more than a billion dollars.

    John once referred to Tucker as “the human equivalent of a blood spattered boat shoe found at the scene of a hazing death” in case you forgot that he’s both a comedian and a poet.

      John is brilliant at talking/reading; but living proof that as I always say, being intelligent (high IQ) does not give you wisdom. In John's case, the teachers and professors (if he went to Uni) won the day.

      He even twisted the words of Hakeem Jeffries by claiming five officers died on Jan. 6th, but that’s not true. Jeffries said, “As the result of these events on Jan. 6th, the lives of five heroic officers were lost.” I know it seemed like he said that, but let me give you an example.
      I had a grandmother who died SEVEN MONTHS ago. Even today, I feel sad for the loss I endured. The sadness I’m feeling right now is the RESULT of my grandmother’s death seven months ago.
      You see, one officer died of 2 strokes on Jan. 7th, and a stroke is caused by stress and emotional upset, which can be caused by the Capitol riot. Two other officers died of suicide days after enduring Jan. 6th, and other two officers died of suicide months after enduring Jan. 6th. The lives of these five officers were lost not on Jan. 6th, but AS A RESULT OF THE EVENTS ON THAT DAY.
      Words can be open to many interpretations, and Tucker Carlson is good at twisting someone’s words!

    John should really do a part 2. I come from a family of Trump-loving conservatives, and whenever I go visit on the weekends they are watching Tucker Carlson. They absolutely love him. They always talk about how "smart" he is. He is straight up idolized. It's not just my parents (of course) but a lot of my friend's and their parents parents. I've seen my dad go from a regular conservative, to a full on paranoid, hateful, far right conservative due to watching Tucker Carlson. He is bringing millions to the far right.

    Tucker’s guide on how to manipulate stupid people:
    1) Pose a leading and incendiary question they didn’t ask while telling them they’re asking it
    2) Clearly indicate what the right and acceptable answer is, and only bad people think otherwise
    3) Praise them for being so smart and good for asking that question and figuring out the answers for themselves

    People in Baghdad (my ancestors) were writing poetry while listening to music wearing silk robes from china, surrounded by the best of fragrances the world had. With libraries bigger than European cities and mosques with minarets higher than medieval castle walls. And at the same exact time in Western Europe Tucker’s ancestors were shitting in the streets, burning “witches” and dropping dead from plagues.

    "Can someone tell us in very clear language what a white supremacist is?"
    White is a skin color, Tucker, though it actually refers to a light tan.
    Supremacy means being better than others.
    "-ist" refers to a person who holds an ideology or belief.
    So, even though the word was self-defining, at least for those with a basic knowledge of English, here's what a white supremacist is, Tucker:
    A person who believes that people with light tan skin are better than others.

    It needs to be rerun. This week Tucker outdid himself. While the January 6th hearings were airing, Tucker did a 2 1/2 hour commercial free show where he did not air the hearings, just talked about them, and with no commercials he hoped that his audience would not switch over to see what was going on, especially when the texts from Fox News hosts pleading with Trump to call off the attack on Congress were displayed.

    Because of his appearance and cultivated persona, I always forget, and am subsequently deeply disturbed when reminded, that Tucker Carlson is actually a fairly smart and manipulative person with an uncomfortably large _and attentive_ audience. The point that he's "actually incredibly consistent" in his messaging sort of speaks to this, and the points John Oliver makes about the clear progression of Carlson "learning" how to present his ideas from his first appearances to now. Listening to everything John Oliver says and knowing that it, at _very least_ in part, is very on purpose is pretty unnerving and certainly, as above, disturbing to watch.

      This is the worst possible response, because we understand that the colonisation of America and genocide of native Americans was wrong, and so equating it to an open border immigration policy implies that immigration is wrong in precisely the same way. At *best* the only thing this line of arguing does is *affirm* that mass immigration *will* hurt the nation as it exists now, but that it's justified because the previous perpetrators are the present's victims.
      Equating immigration to colonialism isn't merely incorrect, but if it were it would advocate for a perpetual cycle of violence where "justice" is simply those who do harm being subject to the same crime they initially committed. Likewise, it provides ammunition for detractors with easy (and equally bad faith) rebuttals. "open border immigration is just like what happened to the native Americans, which was wrong, hence we are justified making sure what happened to them doesn't happen to us rather than just work against our own self interest and allow ourselves to be victimized because we deserve it".

      kevin crider Do you even know what the word "theory" means in that context? In the context of science, it doesn't mean "wild, unsupported guess". So far, all the evidence points to Africa being the birthplace of homo sapiens and even the homo genus in general.
      It seems unlikely that a single species could have originated in places so far apart and still be genetically similar enough to reproduce, especially when boats and the domestication of horses, camels, etc. weren't things yet.

    Narcissists learn how to mimic sincerity by analyzing it step by step and then committing to the bit. They'll take anything sincere and twist it completely to fit themselves. The only defense is to actually pay attention to what's verifiable and what's speculation and who's actually sticking to the truth as it is rather than the one who's confirming every worst bias you have.

    For Tucker Carlson watch "The Lady and the Dale" episode with his father going after trans people. It was shocking. Liz Carmichael was a criminal and he was a journalist tracking a lead, but then he spent the rest of his life to "out" people in jobs like teachers and superintendents. And Tucker got all his "journalistic" skills for him.

    Ugh some of my family members have become brainwashed by this idiot. His delivery, and the way he talks highlights the points he wants to stick with people. It’s highly effective to those that are weak minded, or scared of everything. I watched him a few times because I had to and I couldn’t even listen to him, he scares his audience and Fox News gives him a nice little studio to make the message seem benign.

    John, I love your show and think you do perform a valuable service to our country as you shine light on important social issues from a liberal perspective. I do not watch Fox News or Tucker Carlson, but I do occasionally come across Tucker's presentations in other venues when he updates our society about new and important happenings within the UFO/UAP "Disclosure" movement that is presently in progress. For me, this aspect of Tucker's work is extremely valuable. With this topic he comes across as being engaged and serious about the subject - and it is a serious subject that has been actively covered up for almost 8 decades. My fear is Tucker will eventually become a mouthpiece for the military-industrial complex that will want to go to war with "the aliens", whoever they are and wherever they are coming from. Those of us who keep up with the subject know this will be a mistaken strategy to follow. Our society will need a dissenting voice to counter what will almost certainly become the military's newest narrative promoting ill-advised aggression. I would love to speak with you more about this, or you might consider contacting UFO historian Richard Dolan for a crash-course on the subject of UFOs.

    Our founding fathers believed we needed to be an informed electorate. In Jon Meacham’s Soul of America (A book & HBO documentary) he argues that we need to spend more time reading history books and less time on our devices because social media and cable news will make us passionate and angry but not very well informed. For those interested in learning about our History, Race, Voting and Politics consider the following:

    Open Yale Courses - available free on their website, KZclip and Podcasts - an entire semesters worth of classes with classes in several subjects like Political Philosophy and U.S. History (The American Revolution with Joanne Freeman and Civil War and Reconstruction with David Blight.)

    Voting Related - An author of many books and an authority on Voting, Voter Suppression and African American History is Carol Anderson. Her podcast "Emory The Hidden History of the Quest for Civil Rights is rich and very interesting.
    Our Shared History - Reed College has a Podcast called "Black History Month" from 2009 that has an all-star cast of Historians and Civil Rights Activists that is wonderfully poignant, interesting and necessary for us all. The podcast, Black History For White People, with an outstanding list of guest speakers covering everything you could imagine related to our shared past, is remarkably good.

    Critical Race Theory - for those who are skeptical but curious check out first the KZclip videos shared by 11Alive called “Parents skeptical of critical Race Theory, one of which includes Carol Anderson (see Voting Related). For those that want to have Critical Race Theory explained further and listen to very informative conversation related to CRT check out the Podcast, Intersectionality Matters! with Kimberle’ Crenshaw.

    Polarization & Divisiveness
    The following have written very good books related to this: Heather McGhee, Lilliana Mason and Cornel West. Hour long, substantive interviews with all of these authors can be found on KZclip and C-Span.

      @Ryan Statt Anytime I hear on the news that something terrible has happened at an elementary school wherein a child (or children) happens to have been either injured or killed I grieve. The first time I cried over the deaths and injuries of young children is when I heard that twenty innocent children were murdered by a deranged madman at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012. Just a few months after the tragedy in Newtown; I again grieved when I heard that seven children lost their lives at Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore, Oklahoma following a violent and destructive EF5 tornado that tore through Moore on May 20, 2013. After the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas I was reminded of a witty but painfully accurate observation on school shootings and school violence by funeral director and KZclip user Caitlin Doughty; who is known through her KZclip channel Ask A Mortician: school shootings are as American as hamburgers, hot dogs, apple pie, baseball and Boston Terriers.

    What I find most enjoyable about this piece in hindsight is the utter lack of response Carlson had to it. Even if you search directly on Fox, they never mention this episode.
    Imo it’s because they don’t want to draw attention to it. This isn’t just a 8 second soundbite that quoted, rebuked, and dismissed, but a 20 min discourse with concrete, specific examples over a wide range of years.
