Which Black People Does Tucker Carlson Hate Now? Oh, Just The NAACP (Video)

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

BullyDo you ever get the feeling that maybe bowtied nancy-boy Tucker Carlson doesn’t really like black people? That’s so weird how you would think that. Tucker Carlson should probably get himself an Intelligent Well-Socialized Black to befriend so as to head off suspicions that he is also being a giant racist while he is beating up old queers.

Why are you racist against Tucker Carlson just because he has a weird longtime obsession with how all blacks are crimey now because of the professional race hustlers in the civil rights movement, like this thing he wrote in 1996 that was a long “think piece” about how all blacks are crimey now because of the professional race hustlers in the civil rights movement. Here, have the ending:

As for Washington’s long-vanished black aristocracy, only a few so much as remember that it ever existed. But those who do remember that aristocracy mourn its disappearance for many reasons: for the schools and churches it maintained, for the once-thriving businesses it created. Perhaps most of all, however, the city’s black aristocrats should be missed for their snobbishness. As E. Franklin Frazier put it in the 1950s, “The old upper class in the Negro community erected an impenetrable barrier between themselves and Negroes who represented the ‘sporting’ and criminal world.” The District’s black upper class was never afraid to draw distinctions between black people—between the criminal and the honest man, the idle and the hardworking, between members of the black aristocracy and those who, through industry and upright behavior, might someday be. Such distinctions could be harsh. But they were vital to the health of Washington’s black community, as in any other community. Just how vital is clear perhaps only in retrospect.

Tucker Carlson has spent a lot of time calling people “professional race baiters” when they are black people who speak about race. Here is what Tucker Carlson had to say on Fox.

“By the way, the NAACP, storied history though it has, is a totally discredited group, and anyone who doesn’t think so doesn’t know much about the modern NAACP. It represents virtually no one, it’s bankrupt literally and morally. It’s an absurd fringe group and I don’t know why we pay any attention to what they think! We’re bullied into it because at one time they were a force for good.”

If Tucker didn't spend so much time calling people “professional race baiters”, he might realize he's a professional douchebag.

BaldarTFlagass April 24, 2012 at 1:02 pm

"It represents virtually no one, it’s bankrupt literally and morally. It’s an absurd fringe group and I don’t know why we pay any attention to what they think! We’re bullied into it because at one time they were a force for good.”

Better be careful, there, Tucker. You don't want to piss off Wayne LaPierre and the NRA, talking about them like that.

horsedreamer_1 April 24, 2012 at 5:04 pm

The Minnesota GOP, also.

When he said this part: "It’s an absurd fringe group and I don’t know why we pay any attention to what they think! We’re bullied into it because at one time they were a force for good,” I thought he was talking about the Catholic Church.

GhostBuggy April 24, 2012 at 1:12 pm

The Catholic Church was a force for good?

Ann_ObeyMe_Money April 24, 2012 at 1:16 pm

NOBODY expected the Inquisition!

Lionel[redacted]Esq April 24, 2012 at 1:26 pm

Yes, think about all the good jokes that came out fo the Inquisition. You can't say the same about anything the NAACP has done.

GhostBuggy April 24, 2012 at 5:29 pm

Well, some comedians give it a shot anyway.

Callyson April 24, 2012 at 1:20 pm

Parts of it tried to be, that is until Ratzinger decided to tell the womenz and the radicools to pipe down about that unpleasantness about poverty and inequality and the like.

Lionel[redacted]Esq April 24, 2012 at 1:27 pm

Dear God, if the Catholic church actually started doing what Jesus did, Ratzi would have to give up his fine clothes and Prada shoes. We can't possibly have that.

OneDollarJuana April 24, 2012 at 1:31 pm

A force for good church income. And fancy dresses for El Papa.

valthemus April 24, 2012 at 4:14 pm

Until he got to that "force for good" part, he could have been talking about the NRA.

Barb April 24, 2012 at 1:03 pm

………"the NAACP, storied history though it has, is a totally discredited group…."
Funny, I never see any of the Fox hosts showing up to pick up Emmy awards, Pulitzer Prize awards. Peabody Awards, etc.

ifthethunderdontgetya April 24, 2012 at 1:05 pm

Or to quote phlcstgan from the MMfA comments,

OH SNAP NAACP A WHITE GUY SEZ YOU SUCK.

Bildo lied about having a Peabody, I think?

But all the information is right there on Conservapedia!

Sharkey April 24, 2012 at 1:04 pm

Mother tucker.

Lascauxcaveman April 24, 2012 at 1:05 pm

Tucker's just sensitive about this because his mom was so into the 'sporting class' for her, uh … sports. If you know what I mean.

prommie April 24, 2012 at 1:05 pm

America has always looked to its failed Dancing With The Stars contestants for guidance on racial issues.

Radiotherapy April 24, 2012 at 1:18 pm

prommie, just for you.

prommie April 24, 2012 at 2:40 pm

Many thanks. My, what a screaming abortion of an entertainment that show is.

Redhead April 24, 2012 at 1:05 pm

Well Paula Deen sure seems to care about what the NAACP thinks, Tucker! (Well, at least enough to give racist employees "slap on the wrists" to get the NAACP off her back after she acts like a racist fucktwat from the 1920s.)

Radiotherapy April 24, 2012 at 1:06 pm

Some of his best friends are blah.

Fukui-sanYesOta April 24, 2012 at 1:11 pm

Yes, there's Mr Trickles, a black bear plushie, and of course his pet basalt rock Reagan.

I think we should just toss Tucker in Bubba's restaurant.

SkinnyNerd April 24, 2012 at 1:09 pm

What the fuck is a football doing in a, ahem, political discussion?

Buckminster April 24, 2012 at 1:21 pm

Any distraction when you're getting your buttocks kicked.

Callyson April 24, 2012 at 1:09 pm

By the way, the Republican Party, storied history though it has, is a totally discredited group, and anyone who doesn’t think so doesn’t know much about the modern GOP. It represents virtually no one, it’s bankrupt literally and morally. It’s an absurd fringe group and I don’t know why we pay any attention to what they think! We’re bullied into it because at one time they were a force for good.

/fixed

(ETA: I know, when were they were a force for good? Lincoln, maybe…)

BaldarTFlagass April 24, 2012 at 1:10 pm

“The old upper class in the Negro community erected an impenetrable barrier between themselves and Negroes who represented the ‘sporting’ and criminal world.”

So, the old black aristocracy acted towards "regular" black people like the white aristocracy acts towards all black people and non-rich white people?

Advn2rgirl April 24, 2012 at 1:53 pm

Right? Speaking as a black debutante, "Fiddle dee dee," I say.

Seriously, he reads the dust jacket of one book and he thinks he knows what he's talking about? Has he met Eric Holder: Attorney General, brother in law of Vivian Malone Jones who integrated the University of Alabama with James Hood, uncle of Jeff Malone the NBA All-Star? Lawrence Otis Graham should sooo kick his @ss.

DemmeFatale April 24, 2012 at 5:57 pm

This post made me think of Larry Graham, too. He knows a little something about this subject.
I worked on his congressional campaign back in the day.
I remember him looking downcast and sad one day when someone mentioned J.C. Watts. He just shook his head, sighed,and said: "black Republicans!"

GOPCrusher April 24, 2012 at 2:31 pm

I thought black aristocracy was a buzz word for house nigras.

OneYieldRegular April 24, 2012 at 1:10 pm

Tucker Carlson knows about Black people the same way that Orly Taitz knows about the Space travel.

MissTaken April 24, 2012 at 1:10 pm

Today I'm gonna eat a black and white cookie for my Wonkett's Racial Transcendence Tuesday!

Lionel[redacted]Esq April 24, 2012 at 1:29 pm

Until the third letter in "cookie", I so thought you were going somewhere else with that.

Guppy April 24, 2012 at 2:18 pm

Nothing but Oreos and Twinkies for me, thanks!

EatsBabyDingos April 24, 2012 at 1:10 pm

Tucker is an expert on baiters. Not only is he a professional baiter, he has recently completed his apprenticeship, and is now a "Master Baiter."

Blueb4sunrise April 24, 2012 at 1:11 pm

Okay, thanks, not hungry anymore.

BaldarTFlagass April 24, 2012 at 1:13 pm

Hey! What the fuck happened to his bowtie?

Buckminster April 24, 2012 at 1:23 pm

He ate it, mistaking it for a falafel.

Lionel[redacted]Esq April 24, 2012 at 1:33 pm

To be a member of today's Conservative movement, he had to move to something he could really tighten down to remove all blood from his brain?

donner_froh April 24, 2012 at 2:37 pm

It's bow tie or no tie.

Lucidamente1 April 24, 2012 at 1:13 pm

Tucker Carlson has jumped the shark so many times that he's got teeth marks where his ass used to be.

chicken_thief April 24, 2012 at 1:14 pm

"We’re bullied into it because at one time they were a force for good.”

And Tucker knows quite a bit about being bullied because he never once got to eat lunch at school unless one of his also a big pussy friends shared their samich with him.

CountryClubJihadi April 24, 2012 at 1:14 pm

You mean he didn't get his bow-tie style from Elijah Muhammad?

Radiotherapy April 24, 2012 at 1:24 pm

I thought it was Louis Farrakhan.

Advn2rgirl April 24, 2012 at 2:00 pm

True story: So my brother's working for this law firm in which one of the older attorneys is this obnoxious First Families of VA good ol' boy. He loved to reminisce about his days at UVA before they let The Colored attend while looking pointedly at my brother. In the summer, this guy always sported the conservitard uniform bow tie/seersucker suit ensemble. So, just to mess with him one day, my brother decides to break out his seersucker suit and UVA blue and orange bow tie and wear it to work. That evening, one of the janitors (the only other black person in the building) calls him aside and says, "Hey man, when did you decide to join The Nation?!"

Callyson April 24, 2012 at 1:14 pm

"Why is Clarence Thomas not endorsed? Why not Allen West?"

Um, because they are idiots, and the NAACP is not desperate. Thanks for asking…

Man0nTheStreet April 24, 2012 at 1:24 pm

I'm surprised (heartened, but surprised) that NAACP reached out and invited West in the first place!

Jus_Wonderin April 24, 2012 at 1:17 pm

Whew, I am glad I didn't wear my Hoodie today.

SorosBot April 24, 2012 at 1:17 pm

So is today officially racism day?

SmutBoffin April 24, 2012 at 1:24 pm

In US America, every day is racism day.

Lionel[redacted]Esq April 24, 2012 at 1:34 pm

In the GOP, all days are official racism day.

GOPCrusher April 24, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Well, you know that it's racist that you even asked that question.

IncenseDebate April 24, 2012 at 1:18 pm

Yes, let's bring back the classes so the proletariate can make a garrotte from Tucker's neckwear.

sewollef April 24, 2012 at 1:18 pm

"By the way, Tucker's miserable history though it is, he's a totally discredited moron, and anyone who doesn’t think so doesn’t know much about the modern Carlson. He represents no one, he’s bankrupt literally and morally. He’s an absurd twinkie and I don’t know why we pay any attention to what he thinks! We’re bullied into it because at one time he was just a fucking idiot."

'Search and replace' corrects so many errors doesn't it?

Callyson April 24, 2012 at 1:18 pm

Watched the whole thing for some reason. Christ, Hannity and Snarlson are assholes. STFU and let people answer a simple question without interrupting, for once…

"Which Black People Does Tucker Carlson Hate Now?"

All of them, Katie.

SayItWithWookies April 24, 2012 at 1:20 pm

Hey Tucker — the black aristocracy of your halcyon past had to use the kitchen door and the colored-only water fountain too, and they'd like you to kindly go fuck yourself.

Man0nTheStreet April 24, 2012 at 1:21 pm

But Young Master Tucker loves the chocolate pie his Negro Domestic makes!

Cause what we really need in this world is more Lilly white douche canisters bloviating on the Teevee about race. But I will give it to Fox, when I want to hear what it's like to be irrelevant I turn to Tucker Calrson.

sullivanst April 24, 2012 at 1:32 pm

This post makes me feel even stabbier than the one about Paula Deen's klan.

Dashboard Buddha April 24, 2012 at 1:35 pm

Tucker: Niggerblah niggerblah niggerblah…

Sane person: Hey Carlson, cut that racist shit out!

Tucker: Race baiter!

RedneckMuslin April 24, 2012 at 1:36 pm

A lot of posts about race today. What is this, the Wonkette 500?

FlownOver April 24, 2012 at 1:36 pm

Once a dick, always a dick. Get past the facepalm value and he's got nothin'.

Lionel[redacted]Esq April 24, 2012 at 1:37 pm

Where would this country be without someone like Tucker Carlson to call out the NAACP for being morally bankrupt. I am so glad that Mr. Carlson is looking out for the Black community.

And to think, even though the NAACP does not endorse people who don't agree with it, people think they might actually care about the Black community. Not like Tucker, they don't. Not like Tucker.

HobbesEvilTwin April 24, 2012 at 1:38 pm

I hope the fat guy on Tucker's right yelled at him that he doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about.

Boojum April 24, 2012 at 1:47 pm

This is Racist Diabetes Merchant Day, on the Wonkette.

el_donaldo April 24, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Great. Some trust-fund vanity-journalism-project dipshit decides that an entrenched aristocracy is the only legitimate solution to all problems, including institutional racism.

What's next? Bill Kristol coming out in favor of nepotism?

chicken_thief April 24, 2012 at 2:03 pm

Needz moar scary New Black Panther Party.

MaxUdargo April 24, 2012 at 2:04 pm

I just want to make sure everybody understands what Carlson was saying when he wrote this:

"The District’s black upper class was never afraid to draw distinctions between black people—between the criminal and the honest man, the idle and the hardworking …Such distinctions could be harsh. But they were vital to the health of Washington’s black community, as in any other community."

In other words, as my Uncle Bill used to say, "there's black people and then there's niggers." My Uncle Bill wasn't racist, he just wasn't afraid to make the harsh distinctions vital to the health of the community.

Troglodeity April 24, 2012 at 2:24 pm

At one time the Republican Party was a force for good, too.

GOPCrusher April 24, 2012 at 2:37 pm

If I didn't know better, I would almost think that these asshats are going out of their way to try to provoke a race war.
And that has me worried.

donner_froh April 24, 2012 at 2:40 pm

Does Tucker know that his golden age happened during the days of Jim Crow laws in Washington D.C., a very, very southern city.

commiegirl April 24, 2012 at 11:45 pm

Oh yes, he knows. He spends quite a bit of time on it in his "think" piece. And of course, that was GOOD for the blacks.

el_donaldo April 24, 2012 at 3:26 pm

Leadbelly was apparently a professional race-baiter too.

PlanetWingNut April 24, 2012 at 3:32 pm

does anyone wanna bet he goes regulary to SE in DC and try to pick up DL black guys to fuck his ass?

Mumbly_Joe April 24, 2012 at 3:38 pm

at one time they were a force for good

And yet, that's still one thing they have over Tucker Carlson.

valthemus April 24, 2012 at 4:24 pm

This lends credence to my theory that black people who regularly watch Fox Kind-of-like-News think medical science will, someday, be able to make them white… so when Fox pundits start telling them what scum dark-skinned people are it's like they're talking about someone else.

Wile E. Quixote April 24, 2012 at 4:38 pm

“By the way, the NAACP, storied history though it has, is a totally discredited group, and anyone who doesn’t think so doesn’t know much about the modern NAACP. It represents virtually no one, it’s bankrupt literally and morally. It’s an absurd fringe group and I don’t know why we pay any attention to what they think! We’re bullied into it because at one time they were a force for good.”

Funny, that's how I feel about the Republican party. They went from being the fiscally prudent and pro-civil liberties party of Eisenhower and Earl Warren to being a morally bankrupt (Jonah Goldberg, Rich Lowry, John Derbyshire, Rush Limbaugh, Mike Huckabee Tucker Carlson, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, the late Andrew Breitbart) and literally bankrupt (Minnesota GOP, Newt Gingrich, Joe Walsh) fringe group full of bigoted dipshits. I don't know why we pay any attention to what they think! They're a bunch of stupid, lazy, insane, bigoted hypocritical chickenshit scumbags. We get it jammed down our throats because our corporate overlords like owning a political party full of zombies who can be easy controlled and stirred into a frenzy by stupid bullshit like flag burning amendments and Obama's war against working moms while the oligarchs walk off with everything.

proudgrampa April 24, 2012 at 5:22 pm

Re: that last quote.

At first, I thought it was about Fox News: "It represents virtually no one, it’s bankrupt literally and morally."

But then, I realized it wasn't, because Fox News has NEVER been a force for good.

rickmaci April 24, 2012 at 7:58 pm

Schmuckerhead KKKarlson is so stupid he makes Orly Taitz look like a Nobel Prize candidate.

BZ1 April 24, 2012 at 9:41 pm

Isn't Tucker Carlson an absurd fringe group? just asking …
