Tucker Carlson has made some ridiculous remarks in the past but his criticism of Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth is way off base. On Monday he criticized Senator Duckworth saying “Most people just ignore her. But when Duckworth does speak in public, you’re reminded what a deeply silly and unimpressive person she is… These people actually hate America.” Senator Tammy Duckworth is an Iraq War Veteran, Purple Heart Recipient, and a double amputee. That alone illustrates how patriotic Senator Duckworth is, she has literally given limbs for this country. So when someone who has actually demonstrated their patriotism for this country speaks, you should probably respect their opinion.
While Tucker Carlson disagrees with Duckworth’s suggestion that we should have a national dialogue about statues of George Washington coming down because he owned slaves demonstrates the often bigoted and stubborn mentality of many people on the right. Tucker goes further and suggests that people who want the statues of Washington taken down “hate America”. Tucker has never thought for a moment, that America has excluded these individuals.
Sen. Duckworth doesn’t hate America and has proven it. Tucker Carlson has never served in the military but he always manages to find a way to attack people that have. Whether Carlson is calling General Mattis “a coward” or accusing Pete Buttigieg of lying about his military service, he loves disrespecting Patriots. While I agree with many of the points that Tucker makes, his blatant disrespect of those who have served, must stop. Senator Duckworth had a great one sentence comeback on Twitter for him though.
If anything Tucker Carlson who works for a ‘Fake News’ company that spews false narratives, such as Fox News recently ‘mistakenly’ editing Trump out of a photo with sexual abusers Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, is the unimpressive one. At the 11:56 mark in the video below, Carlson makes his rude remarks about Senator Duckworth.
