Tucker was being rather blatantly racist a couple of days ago. Given that it is him, I’m honestly not surprised, but hey, here it is …
Here briefly is what he said …
So it might be time for Joe Biden to let us know what Ketanji Brown Jackson’s LSAT score was, why not do that from the outset, why wouldn’t he tell us that, that would settle the question conclusively, as to whether she is a once in a generation legal talent, the next one in hand. It would seem like Americans in a democracy have a right to know that and much more before giving her a lifetime appointment, but we didn’t hear that, and that was just one of many things …
What is rather notable is his deliberate mispronunciation of her name.
Nobody, and I mean literally no legal firm, would ever ask for an LSAT score. That is not what qualifies you for any legal job.
How about previous Supreme Court appointments, did Tucker ask for their LSAT score?
This is so very blatantly racist.
Ketanji Brown Jackson – Just The Facts
- She graduated from Harvard in 1992 with an A.B. magna cum laude
- She then went on to Harvard Law School and graduated in 1996 with a Juris Doctor cum laude
- During her time in Harvard Law School she was a supervising editor of the Harvard Law Review
From there she then went on to have a rather distinguished career. She clerked for three judges at all federal levels, including SCOTUS, and she also has several decades of distinguished legal/judicial experience. She will be the only attorney/judge to have been a clerk and Judge at all three federal levels.
With that past, she is probably the most qualified SCOTUS candidate ever nominated.
Unlike another notable Supreme Court candidate, she does not tout the merits of beer, nor did she sexually assault anybody.
RNC digs up the dirt
The RNC has, as one might expect, attempted to dig up dirt on her. Pema Levy writes in Mother Jones about this. There she highlights that the RNC Accuses Biden’s SCOTUS Nominee of…(insert drum roll about here) …. Being a Democrat.
A “Democrat”, the horror of it, it chills all my bones to the very marrow that she might indeed be guilty of being a rational human being with compassion and not a complete lunatic. Apparently, she also donated to Obama’s presidential campaign – and even worked for his campaign as a poll monitor … (shudders … oh the horror).
When they went digging for dirt, this accusation is literally all they could find. No beer, no wild parties, no fanatical religious beliefs, and no sexual assaults.
No wait, I’m wrong, there was a bit more. They also accuse her of being married to somebody who (gasp) made a donation to Hillary in 2016.
Is that a cue for then to proceed to chant “lock her up”.
Is Tucker Carlson a Racist?
Asking that these days really is akin to wondering if the Pope is Catholic, or if Bears …. well you know the rest.
For completeness, let’s cover it.
John Oliver did a segment on “Last Week Tonight” about a year ago. There he dug into him as his main segment for one show last season …
A hat tip simply must go the the Last Week Tonight writer who penned this description of Tucker … “from a man who spends eighty-five percent of his time making the befuddled face of a 13th century farmer learning about Bitcoin“
It is of course not just John Oliver, many others are also rather critical of Tucker.’s racism. For example …
- CNN – White anxiety finds a home at Fox News
- Vox – Watch: Tucker Carlson rails against America’s demographic changes
- CNN – What’s behind Tucker Carlson’s mask
- Washington Post – Don’t ignore the normalization of Tucker Carlson’s poisonous rhetoric on race
Yes, she really is qualified.
No we don’t need her LSAT scores to work that out.
Yes, Tucker is a racist.
I’d also bet good money that Tucker has no idea what Magna cum laude actually means.
Meanwhile, Tucker is now pretending he wasn’t taking the threat of Russia’s war seriously because of Kamala, which appeals to his racist base. This is the same guy who was openly advocating on Putin’s behalf just a week ago.
