Tucker Carlson: Women in the Military BAD!

Fri Mar 12, 2021 10:15 pm

In today's 'conservatives taking us back to the stone age' we have this gem:

Pentagon and senior members of military call out Tucker Carlson for mocking women serving in armed forces: His words 'don't reflect our values'
https://www.cnn.com/2021/03/11/media/tu ... index.html

"Carlson, who is effectively the face of Fox and hosts the top show on the right-wing channel, ridiculed President Joe Biden Tuesday for saying that the US military had created uniforms to fit women properly, created maternity flight suits for those who are pregnant, and updated requirements for hairstyles.
"So we've got new hairstyles and maternity flight suits," Carlson snarked. "Pregnant women are going to fight our wars. It's a mockery of the US military.""

His mom left the family at 6 (maybe she knew the a**hole he was about to become) and he failed at getting into the CIA. As such, I'm not totally surprised he has a chip on his shoulder about women in the military.

His take could easily be captioned: country club brat and heir to frozen foods fortune with cushy TV gig lectures military on personnel policy :rotfl:

Lovely, had the roles been reversed, it wasn't Tucker but Rachel Maddow, I am sure they were going off with their heads long ago: "That's facism, active military attacking a TV talk show host!".

But since its good old Biden administration, there can't possibly be nothing wrong with what they do. Of course, the MSM has their backs.

Do you just punch a random whataboutism generator? This has to be one of your more stupid takes. Which is really an achievement.

So Faux News are finally admitting what a lot of us have known all along: They don't have reasonable viewers.

Yeah and that judge was both right and wrong. Yes no reasonable viewer would trust Tucker, but there are dozens of millions of unreasonable viewers/voters, so that's not a good reason for dismissing the lawsuit.

Why is it always those who have never served a day in their life who have the most to say about the military?

Evolution speaks: females get pregnant. Get used to it. Perhaps Tucker remains unaware of the Dunning-Kruger syndrome.

Thankfully Ted Cruz is here to save the day and....wait...no he wants to dress down the military for being mean to Tucker.

Oh for crying out Loud...just when I thought Cruz couldn't be more unlikeable he manages to lower the bar even further. What a tool. I hope the Marines tell him to F*** off

This is not new, but I am trying to get a link to a story which was shared by an American commando (lady) and she had shared both about her injuries, her stress and her juniors. It was really a remarkable thread and quite a bit long. If somebody does chance upon that article, please share here and with me. It would really add value to the conversation.

My question is since when did modern politicians have any fucking clue about the military? It seems to me that all they do is things like force the USAF to buy unwanted C-17's in order to keep jobs at the plant, or launch a cruise missile attack to deflect from a scandal at home. Hey, this sounds familiar...

That is not an issue per se.

The issue is that jerks make up the media front line and do have an impact on perception in wider parts of the population.
