Tucker Carlsonís THE DAILY CALLERís DISGUSTING POST
Gretawire ^ | Sunday September 18, 2011 | Greta Van Sustran

Posted on 09/18/2011 8:39:11 AM PDT by Bigtigermike

I really don’t understand my friend Tucker Carlson.  He owns the website The Daily Caller and it currently has on its front page the most vile story — referring to a sex act with Governor Sarah Palin as a “womb shifter.”  It is even the headline.  Do you know what that means?  Figure it out  It is really vile.  It is not just smut…this is violence against women.

The “womb shifter” reference reported in the story is only the tip of the ice berg in terms of the vile nature of the posting.  I am sparing you the details.  To show you how bad it is, however, I have put a screen grab up of the front page reference on Tucker’s website. (I am deliberately not putting the link up since I am not going to help Tucker be a pig…he apparently can do it all himself without my help.)

I keep asking myself, why would Tucker allow this to be posted on his website?  I am suspicous his website is not doing well and this is one quick last breath to create buzz to keep it afloat.  I wish Tucker had not allowed this to be posted on a site associated with his name because Tucker and I have been friends (and even colleagues) for years.  I have always liked Tucker and I assume you can tell that when I introduce him and greet him on air.

I don’t like it when I see that my friends do disgraceful things – but we need to start calling out even our friends to stop this.  Tucker has daughters and a wife and I would think he in particular would not want to be a purveyer of smut (and this is actually more, this is violence against women)

There is now an "Editor's note" accompanying the piece (reproduced below). I'm not sure it was there when Greta originally saw the article:

"Editor’s note: Many of the quotes in this story are offensive, indeed repulsive, and not suitable for younger readers or those who are easily shocked. They are also newsworthy. Had Tyson used this language to attack virtually any other person in public life, he’d be vilified on the front page of the New York Times. But you won’t read these quotes in the Times. We believe they deserve public scrutiny and condemnation."

No it’s not! No one should go to that link! Not even worth commenting on the site

This one’s a head scratcher for sure. Tucker is not a great conservative by any means, but this is beyond explanation. Wonder if Greta will call him out on her TV show?

Slimy DC Insider Tucker is a hard core RomneyBOT and his online rag is practically a Romney campaign website.

The DC “only” put that up after they received attacks for posting it! It’s trying to CYA - they just dump the original post on to everyone without any warning or stating that they disagree

You may be right with the “typical east coast frat boy” analysis - but it is still a huge outlier compared to anything else I’ve seen him involved with at Daily Caller or at any other time in his career - and he used to be with MBNBC for crying out loud.

Van Sustren’s stock just jumped 10 points. I too have daughters, just as Tucker does, and my support of the lovely Sarah P. is, in small measure at least, an effort to show them that women can accomplish anything. We have a long way to go obviously. Even Obama benifitted from the mysogyny that pervades our culture. It shouldn’t be surprising that the problem continues apace considering what is tolerated in music and mainstream television these days. Objectification of women is even tolerated by libs, as long as conservative women are the target. Thank Greta, but always remember... At this point she seems to be the only one calling Carlson out for his blog porn.

I used to like Tucker, but in the past couple of years, he’s really revealed himself to be a vile, disgusting pig. This latest incident is the final nail. Repugnant beyond words. He can take his Daily Caller and shove it up his posterior.

How many times have they given Carlson a TV show. And how many times has no one watched. We all can sense a phony when we see him.

Tucker Carlson is an east coast/New England prep school frat boy. I usually steer clear of stereotypes and generalizations, but this classless and immature behavior is typical of his ilk. It is also representative of a generalized anxiety felt by many white males of his background these days. They have lost their hold on power—the elite establishment formerly made up of their parents is crumbling, and they can’t stand it.

A virtuous Alaskan woman who breaks (ignores) all their rules and doesn’t carry the right pedigree is one breath from holding the presidential nomination? Drives them bonkers!

Greta's right, I never thought squat of Carlson, and I dumped the Daily Caller in about a month when they started tipping their hand.

Had to unsubscribe three times to get rid of 'em.

That's what I figured. Greta must know that Tucker Carlson's had a, well, "hard-on" for Sarah Palin, and not in a good way. Back in March, Carlson used Twitter to announce:

"Palin's popularity falling in Iowa, but maintains lead to become supreme commander of Milfistan."

He has also publicly stated that Palin is "unqualified to be President", even though he was kind enough to add that she's not an "extremist". Well, thanks for that. But he's made other snarky comments about her as well, and this latest incident just confirms his attitude.

I'm guessing Tucker agrees it is a disgusting attack against Palin. He may have viewed the story as a means of calling out another deranged Palin hater, and of course the vile nature of it has the benefit of driving traffic to his site. Where Tucker gets it wrong is, it's worth calling out twisted lefties attacking Palin, but not someone like Tyson whom no one on earth pays attention to anymore. Lets say some prominent member of the Congressional Black Caucus said this. That would be worth posting because it makes the point that CBC members are twisted and disgusting. It would have political ramifications and be a huge news story. However, posting thoughts from Tyson is akin to just wandering into the ghetto and recording the commentary of any old gangbanger - which would have no political angle and is just foul, gutter talk.

From time to time people have asked about my tagline. This is precisely why CC made my enemies list. I don’t remember the show (Letterman?), but the host asked CC about Sarah P. and he rolled his eyes. It’s not only the ugly lib women who hate Sarah P. because of her looks, it’s also the fat, slobbering, pretend conservatives like Christie. CC is the very definition of a mysogynist pig, and his eyeroll revealed everything I needed to know about him.
