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

Conor Friedersdorf, The Atlantic: While I favor granting citizenship automatically to children born in the United States, I was reminded of birthright citizenship's biggest downside Tuesday while listening to Tucker Carlson on his Fox News show. Unlike immigrants, natural-born citizens such as Carlson are neither screened nor forced to pass a citizenship test nor made to swear an oath. And when they stray from the American way, no one thinks to tell them that they're failing to assimilate.

I think Carlson divides America. And I'd rather hear the views of the first 100 immigrants listed in the Boston phone book than those of Carlson and his Fox producers. Many call Carlson's show "racist," which I would resist -- strictly speaking, it is more accurate to call it xenophobic, animus-filled, prejudicial, poorly reasoned, and bigoted.

As a natural-born American like Carlson, I hope no one groups us together and makes assumptions about me based on his views. I ask not to be judged for his words.

The only problem with Tucker is that he makes you think.

Ya, about how he pushes weird conspiracy theories while failing to hold Trump accountable and gets people to buy into his meaningless BS.

"I think Carlson divides America."

One might say his raison d'être is to create a schism among the sheeple.

Nah, it's an elitist view that America is flawed and and if you don't toe the line and you veer just slightly from the "norm" well, you are screwed.

"it's an elitist view that America is flawed"

It's a simpleton's view that America is perfect.

Tucker exemplifies what is right and wrong about our current state. A conundrum of inequalities. He is like your brother who insulted you and now you're gonna kick his ass. A necessary evil.

The Left is really triggered by Carlson's blunt truthiness about our braindead, Foreigners first immigration policies. The globalist elite here and in the EU want to shove mass migration and open borders down our throats, and when the unwashed masses resist, they sneer at the "deplorables" who aren't as "enlightened" as the privileged progressive technocrats and elite university products.

You could be less than a simpleton to understand what is wrong and what will happen if things do not change.

OR

Carlson is just an offensive d1ck and does not have an Empathetic or Humanistic bone on his body.

LOL, Nulli's a Tucker fan boy! Figures!

Snowflake!

He's probably bought the Tucker bow-tie collection, it's next to his InfoWars Orange drink on the display shelf in his double-wide.

"braindead, Foreigners first immigration policies."

Foreigners first?
Where else are immigrants going to come from, Nullifidian?

"foreigners" are not "first"

they are immigrants.

immigrants are not "first", First in what? You mean we have to use American taxpayer dollars to help them? We have too! None of the Three Mexico's will pay like Trumpy promised!

Immigrants are not first (in front of you) for anything, ever , unless you have been waiting in a line for a cage and a horrible diet with no hygiene and a lifetime of court cases and looking over your shoulder for Trump's SS men.
