WARNING: This video contains some language that may be offensive to some viewers. If you don’t want to watch the video, the summary is below.
First of all, I apologize for those of you who watched the video and feel like your soul has been tainted by listening to Carlson’s childish chatter. Second, these comments were made over a five-year period from 2006 to 2011. They were made during interviews on the radio show Bubba the Love Sponge. Some of the comments have been about women especially Hillary Clinton, Paris Hilton, Arianna Huffington and Martha Stewart’s daughter Alexis and how he thinks they’re like dogs who are generally “c*nty”.
Here is a summary of Carlson’s Fred Flintstone-like responses provided by Alternet:
“Carlson said underage marriage is not the same thing exactly as pulling a child from a bus stop and sexually assaulting that child. … The rapist in this case has made a lifelong commitment to live and take care of the person so it is a little different.’”
“After Bubba the Love Sponge described underage girls at Carlson’s daughter’s boarding school experimenting sexually with each other, Carlson said, ‘If it weren’t my daughter I would love that scenario.’”
“Carlson said criminal charges against Warren Jeffs are ‘bullshit’ because ‘arranging a marriage between a 16-year-old and a 27-year-old is not the same as pulling a stranger off the street and raping her.’”
Jeffs, it should be noted, was on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list. He was convicted of felony child sexual assault and arranging marriages for adult males and underaged girls. He’s serving a life sentence plus 20 years in prison.
“Carlson described TV host Alexis Stewart, Martha Stewart’s daughter, as ‘c*nty’ and said he wanted to ‘give her the spanking she so desperately needs.’”
“Carlson called singer Britney Spears and celebrity Paris Hilton ‘the biggest white whores in America.’”
“Carlson: If Hillary Clinton were president, ‘how long do you think it would take before she castrated you?’”
Carlson also said if Hillary Clinton “could castrate you, she would,” and “thereby she gets not a single vote from any white male.” He also called her “anti-penis.”
Disgusting? Yes. Surprising? No. Carlson, Fox News’ flagship gum flapper, embodies the far right wing arm of conservatism that believes in male victimhood, privilege and supremacy all in one. So, it’s not surprising if one were to discover that a sizable portion of his audience are aggrieved, entitled males just as misogynistic as he is.
