Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, July 10, 2019

Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night launched an attack on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who came to the U.S. as a refugee from Somalia, saying the outspoken progressive is "living proof" that U.S. immigration laws are "dangerous."

Mr Carlson incorrectly conflates "not holding extremist right-wing ideas" and "hating America."

Omar is an ingrate that spends her time bashing the country that saved her from Somalia.

I've never watched him, but he seems like the right's version of Madcow: both extremely opinionated and dangerously idiotic.

Carlson is full of crap. He says: "The Romans were the last to try that with predictable results. "

That isn't even close to true. 1. America is a land of immigrants; 2. U.K. allows immigration from their former colonies and many of those people do not love England. Does he think the Irish love the British.

"I've never watched him, but he seems like the right's version of Madcow: both extremely opinionated and dangerously idiotic"

Have you watched Maddow? No one who has half a brain could listen to her and still pretend she is idiotic. Your comment makes you look idiotic.

I've watched them both (Tucker and Maddow).

Mr Tucker is dangerously opinionated, especially since he seems to have both Pres Trump's ear and some rather extreme views. I've read that he and Judge Jeanine seem to be having problems retaining advertisers on their shows because of the extremism.

Ms Maddow I found to be quite opinionated, but boring. More boring than dangerous. Oh so boring. To her credit, though, she does provide a lot of citations to original documents.

@#6 ... Carlson is full of crap. ...

Mr Tucker's choice of word to describe immigration was insteresting.

People do not choose to immigrate, the United States imports them.

What an odd way to think of immigration.

Yes, we have had this conversation before, and I have watched Madcow and also know you have a crush on her.

Both Tuck and Madcow have Dr. Evil tendencies: They think they are smarter than everyone else (and sell that facade to the impressionable) but anyone with more than half a brain sees right through it.

Immigration laws "dangerous"? No.

Immigration laws ignored? Yes.
Immigration laws porous? Yes.
Immigration laws toothless? Yes.
Immigration laws exploited by individuals like Omar? Yes.

Re: Mr Tucker's use of the word "import" to describe immigration.

From the Random House Unabridged Dictionary:

import, v.t.
1. to bring in (merchandise, commodities, workers, etc.) from a foreign country for use, sale, processing, reexport, or services.

Yes, quite the odd way for Mr Tucker to describe immigration.

It's not insteresting, interesting, or even remotely new for that matter. What do you think Republicans have been doing for the better part of the last 20 years arguing in favor of only allowing immigrants that have the education or skill that we're looking for?

Tucker presents as if he were nuts.

Ms. Maddow, while sometimes shrill, always speaks in complete sentences, and sometimes I notice her high-powered education shining through, much to her target's or guest's embarrassment.

It looks insteresting :) to me in that "import" conveys a sense of a financial transaction for a service, commodity or product, and not the sense of a not a human being coming in to the country.

Stereotypes exist for reasons.
In this case, the stereotype seems pretty accurate.

His hatred of Omar is palpable.
His hatred of immigration is palpable too.
He calls it "Importing people from places whose values are simply antithetical to us."
Trump simply called them -------- countries.

Carlson is referring to the Christians, who were considered lesser non-citizens. They were the "societal infection" and used for political propaganda such as public torture.

In short, it appears that Tucker Carlson is advocating the Romans mass murder of Christians to shore up his bigoted notion that US immigrants will also need to be exterminated.

Relative to third word countries, that's a big plus.
That's what the early European immigrants came for. They came to work because jobs were plentiful. There were no welfare systems then.

Now, if they do come for work, it doesn't take long before they can't find work and have to rely on welfare. The Dems make it a point to tell migrants who provides the welfare.

Those numbers count only those receiving unemployment compensation. Doesn't count those who gave up looking for a job. I see some estimates of real unemployment around 20%.

By law, employers are not allowed to hire illegals. What that did was spawn an industry that makes false documents. By that route, they become eligible for entitlements.

I'm pretty sure liberal states like California are spending a lot of money on migrants. Some states want illegals to be eligible for drivers licenses. Democrats are making this a campaign issue because they want those migrant votes. It sure ain't for altruistic reasons.

Stupid, stupid, and more stupid. We all know they aren't citizens and can't vote despite Republican claims studies have proven over and over that voter fraud is virtually non-existent but it is a great lie for the stupid Republican base. Those dummies believe anything right wing pundits tell them.
