Claytoonz: Scabbing with Tucker Carlson

5 min read

Studying that there’s racism inside Fox
Information is like Captain Renault in Casablanca discovering there’s playing
at Rick’s. “I’m shocked, shocked to search out that playing is happening
right here!”

Newly revealed racist textual content from Tucker
Carlson to a Fox Information producer reportedly “alarmed” the Fox board when
they first heard of it. Actually? Alarmed? Shocked that there’s playing
right here? Please. What they had been most likely alarmed about was that it was
found and could be entered into proof by Dominion Voting
Methods. The textual content contributed to 2 issues: The  $787.5 million
settlement with Dominion and Tucker’s firing.

Within the textual content, Tucker talks about witnessing a bunch of white males beat up an “Antifa child.”

Tucker wrote, “A few weeks in the past, I
was watching video of individuals preventing on the road in Washington. A
group of Trump guys surrounded an Antifa child and began pounding the
dwelling shit out of him. It was three in opposition to one, at the very least. Leaping a
man like that’s dishonorable clearly. It’s not how white males battle.
But all of the sudden I discovered myself rooting for the mob in opposition to the person, hoping
they’d hit him tougher, kill him. I actually needed them to harm the child. I
might style it. Then someplace deep in my mind, an alarm went off:
this isn’t good for me. I’m changing into one thing I don’t need to be. The
Antifa creep is a human being. A lot as I despise what he says and does,
a lot as I’m certain I’d hate him personally if I knew him, I shouldn’t
gloat over his struggling. I must be bothered by it. I ought to keep in mind
that someplace someone most likely loves this child, and could be crushed if
he was killed. If I don’t care about these issues, if I scale back individuals
to their politics, how am I higher than he’s?”

Tucker, you’re worse than that child. Tucker has all the time diminished and demeaned individuals he considers his political enemies.

Tucker has additionally constructed a profession pushing white
nationalism. What number of occasions did he promote the “nice alternative
concept” on his primetime present? This can be a concept that whites are being
systematically changed with darker-skinned individuals. White nationalists
love this concept, as does Fox Information, because it suits their agenda of selling
hate and worry.

Fox Information being shocked that there’s racism
of their institution is a crock. They must be
higher actors than Claude Rains to drag that one off. Tucker’s textual content
doesn’t simply present that he’s racist, however {that a} Fox Information producer is simply too.

There’s been too many occasions that I’ve sat
at a bar and a white man subsequent to me, who I don’t know, begins speaking to
me and drops N-bombs and different racist slurs. I’ve additionally heard white
strangers close to me, who will not be talking to me, however are sharing their
racism loudly and with confidence. In fact, the racism bothers me, however
what additionally disturbs me is that they’re not shy in sharing their
racism…and with me, who they don’t know. It bothers me {that a} racist
will assume I share his viewpoints. Principally, he’s judging me by the
colour of my pores and skin. It’s not my fault I’m a 97 p.c UK mutt.

However in Tucker’s case, he is aware of this
producer. He is aware of he can ship the man a racist textual content. He felt protected
sending it. He additionally felt protected making a hateful and misogynistic
surroundings in his studio. Hell, Tucker felt protected pushing racism on his
present. Shocked there’s racism at Fox Information? Listed here are your winnings, sir.

I as soon as had a pal textual content me a really unfunny
joke about auctioning President Obama. I ignored it. A number of days later
he texted once more, “Did you place a bid?” And that’s after I informed him I
wasn’t cool with that shit. In his case, he knew I wasn’t cool with it
and was making an attempt to get beneath my pores and skin. We don’t discuss anymore as a result of I
don’t have anything for him. However I wager Tucker’s producer didn’t reply to his
textual content, “Please cease sending me this racist shit. I’m not on board.” I’d
wish to see the reply and who it got here from.

And talking of playing, I’d wager lots of
cash that there’s multiple particular person at Fox Information to whom Tucker felt
protected sending racist texts.

As for the writers strike, I’m with the
writers. I too am afraid of what the long run brings, particularly relating to
synthetic intelligence. Principally, each cartoonist is afraid of AI
changing us. After which a number of weeks in the past, somebody shared a bunch of
AI-created photos of Republicans as drag queens and mainly each
editorial cartoonist (apart from me) shared them.

You don’t battle AI by sharing it on social
media. I really feel the identical means about memes. Some try to
substitute editorial cartoons with them. I don’t share memes.

We must always all the time help good writing.
Regardless that it seems there are too many lazy remakes and shitty TV
exhibits and films, there’s all the time good writing on the market. For each ten
“Two Broke Ladies,” there’s at the very least one “Neighborhood,” or “The IT Crowd,”
or “The Good Place.” You simply gotta seek for it.

I stand with you. I really feel your ache as somebody who’s in an business
the place I can’t manage to unionize and even produce an honest ethics

Artistic observe: I watched
the primary two seasons of Ted Lasso however none of season three. However I’m
planning on subscribing to Apple TV when season three is over, bingeing
it, then canceling the service. It’s what I did for the primary two
seasons. And talking of writing, I watched “Cocaine Bear” final evening.

Music observe: I began to take heed to Adam Ant after which turned it off after I tried to consider extra stuff so as to add to this cartoon.
