Here’s another clue to his psyche:
“Wives and children are the great civilizers (no such word) of men. More than law, police, jail, or fear of death, having a family induces men to become good citizens.”
— Tucker Carlson — in neoconservative Policy Review
Here’s another laugh:
“Three Madison Awards Given For Pro-Gun Articles and Editorials”
“The Second Amendment Foundation is proud to announce that The New York Post, Tucker Carlson, and the Tempe Daily News Tribune will receive James Madison Awards this quarter…Our second Madison Award goes to Tucker Carlson for his analysis of guns as a ‘public health’ issue. His article, entitled ‘Handgun Control, M.D.’, appeared in the April 15, 1996 edition of The Weekly Standard.”
His article began by reporting on a rally of doctors in Washington, D.C. for “[t]he latest addition to America’s ever-expanding definition of health care: gun control.” One pediatrician was quoted as saying, “Guns are a virus that must be eradicated.”
Guns were also considered a “pathogen” and gun violence an “epidemic” by this group.
Their way of thinking was “debunked” by Mr. Carlson when he stated that, “For one thing, guns aren’t pathogens… Genuine pathogens, as any doctor knows, cause disease when introduced into a pathogen-free environment. Considering that there are more than 200 million privately owned firearms in the United States, only a minuscule fraction of which are ever used in acts of violence, guns don’t qualify under this definition.”
Carlson noted that suicides are included and therefore the number of deaths involving family members and friends are greatly increased.
He then correctly pointed out that “[s]ome of the countries with the world’s strictest gun-control laws — Japan, Hungary, Cuba — also have the highest rates of suicide.”
His logic here is escapable, and typically silly.
Tucker ended by stating that
The arguments that surround gun violence are complicated, the obvious conclusions often less obvious than they appear. Perhaps it is a subject that, as a doctor might say, is best left to the experts.”
Yes, so why didn’t you, Carlson?
Tucker Carlson, on a radio show, attacked CIA critics because there has been no evidence that the CIA knew that contras were selling cocaine to South Central Los Angeles’ drug dealer “Freeway” Ricky Ross.
But that’s the point, moron. The CIA should have known.
Carlson has also been adopted by federal felon Chuck Colson for “protecting” the births of Down Syndrome babies. Carlson wants doctors to keep delivering DS kids, but, I suspect, doesn’t want to pay for their care if they are not White Republicans.
