So in recent news, Tucker Carlson was accosted by a group of antifascist protesters at his home.
And I cannot even begin to summon the slightest shit to give about this. I tried, and I failed.
Tucker Carlson is a white nationalist scumbag. He’s been pushing vile anti-immigrant, anti-asylum rhetoric in the leadup to the election. Going from his broadcasts, it’s not that unreasonable to assume he sees just about anyone who isn’t white, straight, and cisgendered as subhuman, or at least not worthy of the same rights as anyone else.
Let’s leave aside the politics for a moment. Obviously, bad optics, obviously the right-wing shitheads are going to make a big deal about this. But I cannot even begin to give a shit what happens to Tucker Carlson. I hope he has people protesting in front of his door day and night. I hope he doesn’t get a good night’s sleep because people are rightfully incensed at a racist, transphobic white nationalist shithead and willing to show it. I hope he’s afraid to show his stupid, shitty face in public. Because what this guy has been empowering, the damage his words do to people who don’t make millions of dollars spreading hate, is far worse than a few antifascists banging on his door. If this is the only recourse we have against men like him, then yeah, let’s make it clear that these fuckers aren’t welcome in the public sphere.
