Media Matters shows leftists are humorless
Some naughty words spoken by Tucker Carlson years ago in radio interviews were found after James Alefantis’ ex-boyfriend’s organization Media Matters searched for them. Media Matters called Carlson’s comments “misogynistic and perverted”. Let’s first take a moment to laugh at that unbelievable hypocrisy.
Those clips made me chuckle. After all, it’s not like a presidential candidate grabbing a girl in her p*. They were just words, and 100% of us have said things way naughtier. If you were actually emotionally affected by his interviews, then I could literally kill you with shit I’ve said.
Media Matters shows leftists are incapable of humor. They’ve comedically neutered themselves to a point where you can watch an entire comedy show and not laugh. As someone who loves blue comedy and good writing, I’m not happy with the current state of entertainment.
The left is killing comedy, just like they’re killing free thinking. When was the last time you had an in-depth, intellectual discussion with a leftist? If that made you laugh, I was actually being serious. They can’t relax, laugh, and go down various rabbit holes of topics where you can talk all night. They’re always in defensive mode, scanning for an opportunity to jam their social justice propaganda down our throats.
When was the last time you laughed your ass off with (not at) a social justice lefty? They're not funny. I feel for them the same way I do for those little deaf babies in those videos where they get to hear their mother's voice for the first time. Leftists have been so intellectually depressed by the darkness of fake news and academia that their little brains haven’t been tickled with the light and stimuli of thought beyond the classroom.
This story had nothing to do with the content of Carlson's interviews; it was an attempt to push him from his platform. They really thought we would grab the pitchforks and march down to the Fox News studio and demand he be thrown from a top floor window because he joked about stuff of which we've all joked.
Those of us in our 40s and 50s came of age in the late-80s/early-90s grunge era of MTV (back when they played music videos), Comedy Central (back when they did comedy), listened to shows like Bubba the Love Sponge, watched “Beavis and Butthead”, and listened to Chris Rock, Richard Pryor, and George Carlin. We're not the old prudes you want us to be.
Conservatives a generation before us dealt with stuff like Vietnam and were trained to hide under their school desks in case Krushchev had an itchy button finger. In school, I was fantasizing about banging my hot teacher. My dad’s generation was fantasizing about their teacher not picking their draft number to die in Vietnam. They're more hardened than my generation, and we're pretty hard to offend.
Overall, we’re not the puritans who think sex should be preceded by reading scripture, then performed missionary-style only for reproductive purposes. Whatever dirty jokes and humor you can dig up, they won't offend us. We've heard them before and will likely laugh and reminisce to those days when we were young and rebellious.
There was indeed an interview that deeply troubled me about Tucker Carlson. It was with Ben Shapiro when Carlson supported the idea of banning automation and put on full display his ignorance of free market capitalism. That's for another article, but that shocked me far beyond any jokes about calling women the c-word and telling them to stay in the kitchen.
It was a swing and miss by Media Matters. A piece of advice for anyone attempting to take Carlson down: tread carefully. He has tons of money, is at the top of the main stream media food chain with his own show on Fox News, and more dangerously for you, he owns one of the largest digital media publications with actual journalists and researchers, the Daily Caller. He just needs to snap his fingers to expose your dirt.
Nice try leftists. You failed and made Carlson stronger.
