Who in America truly wants to disenfranchise Tucker Carlson as a voter?

Asked by mazingerz88 (26206points) 2 weeks ago from iPhone

Carlson claims Democrats want to deprive him of the right to vote. Here is his statement.

———-

I know that the left and all the gatekeepers on Twitter become literally hysterical if you use the term ‘replacement,’ if you suggest that the Democratic Party is trying to replace the current electorate, the voters now casting ballots, with new people, more obedient voters, from the third world. But, they become hysterical because that’s what’s happening, actually. Let’s just say it: That’s true.”

Carlson continued, “Every time they import a new voter, I become disenfranchised as a current voter.”

I wouldn’t mind him being drawn and quartered and made to walk the plank…he’s an awful human being. But I’m not overtly after his right to vote.

His statement “Every time them….I become disenfranchised..” is hyperbolic bullshit. It assumes that government is a zero sum activity. In fact, a democracy (or a republic) depends on multiple voices from multiple groups.

Yes, if new people move to the US, then he is perhaps one of 10,000,000 voters in NY instead of 9.999.999. But that hardly counts as disenfranchisement.

Compare what the idiot says to the stock market.

- if I own 100 shares and the company has 20,000,000 outstanding, I have a certain position.

- if the companies issues another 5 million shares (to have 25,000,000 outstanding), I still own my shares. More people own it as well. So for a short time my individual shares might be worth a bit less.

- But as the company prospers, all 25,000,000 shares benefit.

That is just “equality equals white genocide” levels of retardicity.

Republicans are hard at work to make it as difficult as possible for non-white citizens to vote, not just by making it physically harder to vote, but also by purging voter lists, and enabling legislatures to indiscriminately discard and invalidate already cast votes after the fact, and the cunt complains that other people voting is somehow “disenfranchising” him.

It also shows what he thinks of minority voters, who, again, are citizens:
He does not consider them part of the country, or as fellow citizens.

By framing them as “new people” “from the third world”, he exposes his true view:
He thinks of them as aliens, as foreigners, who should not be allowed to vote.

Carlson is right that immigrants are far more likely to be democrats. But he is dead wrong in that about Democrats advocating REPLACEMENT of Republican voters. Any such claim is simply a blatant distortion of the truth. And all the hysteria is FROM THE RIGHT on the subject and it is 100% about nothing more than the fact that old white men are destined to be outnumbered. The fact that youngsters, people of color and women want nothing to do with stick-up-the-ass regressive ideas is not the fault of the Democrats.

In the very unfortunate, and hypothetical, case that I was a child of Carlson (and if I had siblings I would urge them to do the same (although if they would be sane and reasonable they wouldn’t need persuasion)), I would do everything in my power to find me a nice and sweet ‘alien’ to get seriously involved with,and later marry.

One would almost think that he is a xenophobe.

Poor little butt hurt Tucker, his white intolerant ass is being held accountable for being a stinking white supremacist..

Nobody wants to take his vote, people want their vote just as much. and just because he is a white male doesn’t mean his vote gets to count more.

No need to try to figure out Tucker Carlson’s nonsense. It’s a schtick. He’s like Stephen Colbert’s “Colbert Report” character. The only difference that Tucker’s audience is not in on it.

Let his white supremacy dopey dog dough boy nonsense alone. There is nothing to figure out here and no reason to counter it. The whole point is that it is immune to reality.

He is actively trying to disenfranchise tens of thousands so . . . he feels if that doesn’t work his “Fright Winger” single vote will be one against tens of thousands.

He needs to be “replaced.”

What a total idiot.

Reminds me of “we will not be replaced.” Remember that? Dog whistle for the WS in my opinion. Disgusting.

Poor cry baby Tucker. Nobody wants to disenfranchise his vote the way he wants to disenfranchise those who disagree with his politics. Why is it these rich boys at Fox always have to play the victim.
