pallin' around with terrorists

What Poo Is Dribbling From Tucker Carlson’s Mouth Today?

totally butchWhat do Reverend Jeremiah Wright, “controversial leftist priest” Father Michael Pfleger, and “the brother of domestic terrorist Bill Ayers” have in common? Well, a certain young Socialist ACORN once tried to get Chicago’s mayor to meet with them, 25 years ago, so they could ask him (the mayor) to endorse a community organizing project, on whose advisory council they would sit, the Daily Caller breathlessly reports. DUN DUN DUN!

You all presumably know who the Reverend Wright is. But who is this Father Pfleger fellow? Well, he is a total commie who does things like protest against rappers who denigrate women and adopts sons (all now in college, aw) despite his bishop totally telling him not to. And he once got totally mad at a Catholic Little League for excluding his school because the other kids “wouldn’t have been safe” in his mostly black parish. So as you can see, he is pretty racist. And this “brother of domestic terrorist Bill Ayers,” one John Ayers, what’s his deal? He is such a hippie freak that they made him vice president of the Carnegie Foundation, promoting excellence in teaching. Why does Barack Obama love terrorists?

So what does Tucker Carlson have to say about this?

Hmmm, is that what the Daily Caller’s story says?

“We are not seeking any city funding for our program,” Obama wrote the mayor in the 1987 letter. “[H]owever, we do seek your whole-hearted support and endorsement of our initiative. We should therefore respectfully ask that within the next three or four weeks you agree to meet briefly with a small delegation of DCP leaders and the attached list of advisory committee members to discuss our proposal and your possible support for it.”

In a followup letter to Washington’s assistant three days later, Obama again laid out his plans and attached the list of his invited advisory council.

Right, so: no.

    Washington? It's even worse then; Obama asked for help from a black mayor! Now who's the real racist?

    1. imissopus

      Black men talking to black men! It's a small step from there to them enslaving us and raping our white wimmenz! Panic! Mass hysteria at the Daily Caller! Etc.

  2. KeepFnThatChicken

    Why do I get a little twitchy when I read "priest" and "adopted sons" in the same sentence?

    1. Cicada

      It really is the catch-all answer.

      "Why does Obama want to destroy 'Merica?"

      "Why does Obama want to abort all the babies, ever?"

      "Why is Obama a socialist commie Mooslem Kenyan?"

    1. PsycWench

      Dunno, I suspect someone would end up personally wetting himself and I don't think it would be Obama.

  3. SmutBoffin

    Hi, Tucker! (You read Wonkette, I presume.) You should write a story about how the Afghanistan war is so badly run that entire regions of the country are off-limits to US forces, except for robot drones which are unreliable and can be horrifically misused. That'll allow you to criticize the president in the most strident terms possible, and this has the benefit of being completely true!

    Or you can go with this crap, whatever.

      1. Esteev

        Not to mention Tucker would have to go to an unsafe part of the world.

        Ohpleasegopleasegopleasego! (With votes?)

    1. Texan_Bulldog

      Too complicated for the mouth breathers & Matty Drudge can't get a race baiting-siren wailing headline out of that.

  4. Goonemeritus

    An unpaid no-show position, does Obama know how machine politics works, is he even from Chicago?

        1. docterry6973

          Why, my great-great-grandfather is still pulling 30K on a no-show job in Philly. Obama is pathetic.

  5. LibertyLover

    They keep trying to dig to China to find some dirt on Obama. Don't they know that Rmoney needs to outsource that sort of digging to Chinese workers?

    1. iburl

      That's not what the Daily Callgirl's millionaire bankrollers pay him to do. They pay him to whip stupid white people into a racist frenzy.

  6. EatsBabyDingos

    Sounds like someone is mentally tuckered out. Probably pissed that Honey Boo Boo is endorsing Obama and that more people care what she says than what he has ever said in his whole life.

  7. LibertyLover

    It's right there on the page! All of the arm-twisting, Chicago-style politics! I am SO going to vote for Romney now, you guys!

  8. mbobier

    Okay — so Tucker is so terrified that Obama might win re-election that he not only is trying to re-boogeyfy Jeremiah Wright, but also dragging John Ayers into the fray AND throwing Father Pfleger — who, unlike Tucker and his ilk, is a genuinely caring person and a total mensch — into the mix?


    The Farce is strong in this one.

    1. HouseOfTheBlueLights

      John Ayers is also an extremely richtiger Mensch, despite coming from oodles of very suspect money.

  9. skmind

    “We are not seeking any city funding for our program,”

    Isn't that code for "We are seeking major city funding for our program?"

    Tucker Carlson, please collect your Pulitzer on your way out.

  10. Terry

    Tucker should totally investigate this priest guy. He should stop writing columns and shut down his website until he finds real dirty on the guy, verified by at least two independent sources.

  11. ThankYouJeebus

    When are these blacks going to stop being so racist?

    I thought we cleared this up when "Dr." Laura shouted NI&&ER NI&&ER NI&&ER at that caller a couple years ago.

  12. actor212

    How is the former vice president of the Carnegie…Carnegie Foundation as in Andrew, the steel magnate…Foundation just "the brother of Bill Ayres?????????????????

  13. FakaktaSouth

    Interesting way of doing things, headlines that are disproved by the articles' content.
    Like, "Intelligent, Cogent, Thoughtful and Reasonable Tucker Carlson Speaks" followed by stuff he says. I could do this all day. I gotta get me an asinine bullshit website.

    1. prommie

      I'm loving this new thing, guilt by association with people who aren't guilty to begin with, but only been smeared good and hard. So now Bill Ayers who never did anything anyway but get smeared and called names, now its so accepted that he is evil that his brother is guilty by association with the crap they threw at him, and now Obama is guilty again for associating with a guy who is the brother of another guy who someone told lotsa lies about. Its like playing "Six Degrees to Kevin Bacon," except with Obama, its "Six Degrees To Satan (and Hitler, Stalin, Lenin, the Kaiser, and Neville Chamberlain)."

      1. FakaktaSouth

        It is the way these people do everything, base-association. It is a spectacular tool for stupid people. Ayers, bad, acorn, bad, knowing the reasons we are saying these completely untrue things, bad, knowing things in general, hard…it just works so well. Tucker's smirk out-does Romney's and his whole derisive game built on a bunch of lies and nonsense makes me so angry I get angry at myself for how much I hate him.

          1. FakaktaSouth

            gets paddled? Are we playing? I will win win win, AND he's married to Kyra Sedgwick (Singles!)

          2. James Michael Curley

            Kevin Bacon – “Can I have another Sir”When the Deltas go to the club where Otis Dey is playing, after the set they come up and say, “Do you mind if we dance with yo dates?”You had to be there I guess.

      2. Chet Kincaid_

        Let's be factual, Bill Ayers admittedly participated in 3 or 4 bombings and went underground to avoid arrest, but then the charges against the Weather Underground were dropped because the FBI used dickhead illegal tactics.

        1. prommie

          Well OK but like, he's pretty much maybe rehabilitated and proven himself a valid contributing member of society since, no? Like, is there a statute of limitations on that shit? Didn't Bush appoint an ambassodor who bombed a fucking cuban airplane?

  14. sbj1964

    This is exactly the problem with these right wing-nuts they are constantly out stupid each other like it's a contest,and just when you think they have outdone themselves they they manage a new low.They are a true bottomless pit of ignorance.

  15. elviouslyqueer

    We should therefore respectfully ask that within the next three or four weeks you agree to meet briefly with a small delegation of DCP leaders and the attached list of advisory committee members to discuss our proposal and your possible support for it.”

    For larfs, I'm going to run this through my handy-dandy Tucker Carlson Translator:

    "In my position as HNWIC, you best be meeting with me or I will shiv ALL you motherfuckers, plus rape your children, beat your grandma, and fuck your wives with my huge black dick."

    What do I win?

  16. SayItWithWookies

    Nice publicity strategy there, Tucker — outrage them with the tweets, and then when they link to the substance-free story it reminds them why they never read your little internet page.

  17. UnholyMoses

    Oh, what a tangled web Tucker weaves when he's trying to deceive being a complete race-baiting fucknugget.

  18. fuflans

    also father pfleger is a leftwing firebrand that has tangled with practically everyone (especially the catholic church) and championed all sorts of social policies that are, i don't know, possibly helpful for a big diverse city with a shitload of city problems.

    agree or disagree with him, we need more like him.

  19. prommie

    Mr. Lou Reed from the City of New York wrote some of the best sneering hating music ever, and he wrote this one song in which he says of the song's object (subject? When the song is directly addressed at someone, its the object ansd subject, no?) "you'd eat shit, and say it tasted good, if there was some money in it for ya." That pretty much sums up all the right wing pundits, don't it? Coulter, Hannity, Tucker here, Limbaugh, they eat shit, and say it tastes good, every day all day, for the money.

  20. Warpde

    Wow! Now that was some bad ass Chicago thug tactic request there.
    Bet he also threw in a few X's and O's with squirt of cologne to show he wasn't fucking with them.

  21. rickmaci

    Fukkker KKKarlson's Daily KKKaller at it again. You would think he would eventually get tired of constantly having to re-establish his bona fides as the poster boy for ex College Republican conservatard twitwits.

  22. Callyson

    Tucker Carlson really needs to stop borrowing clothes from James O'Keefe. He just can't pull off the pimp look at all…

  23. PsycWench

    “We are not seeking any city funding for our program” which is why Republicans have no idea how to interpret this communication. Why would you contact a mayor if you didn't want money?

  24. SayItWithWookies

    And I love how Bill Ayres' name causes spittle-flecked outrage among Republicans because he's a terrorist — meaning that to protest the war in Vietnam, he blew up a toilet in the Pentagon with an M-80. Meanwhile these same assholes slaver over this guy who bills himself as an ex-terrorist as long as he spouts their rhetoric. It's too bad Slobodan Milosevic is dead, 'cause they could certainly use his authority to back up their fear of Islam.

      1. SayItWithWookies

        It's amazing too — somehow Mitt's healthcare plan for Massachusetts is lost to the mists of time, yet just whisper the word Chappaquiddick and they can recall every single detail.
