    — what a load of crap. You obviously have not watched (or at least paid attention to) Tucker Carlson. “The great replacement theory” is a staple that he pounds into his audience night after night. It was the core foundation of the white supremacist’s ideology, as well as that of other violent shooters. When challenged by the media after the latest shooting, Tucker did not soften his views, try to put it in “context,” or rationalize or minimize his actions in any way. He doubled down on his vicious vitriol. There is a direct line from Tucker Carlson to the shooter’s hate-filled rant of white supremacy and the “great replacement theory.”

    There is NOTHING remotely similar in the media presentations of any African American or other PROgressive media host. Nothing.

    And it is borne out in results. The single biggest source of domestic terrorism in the United States is white supremacists. African Americans, Jews, Latinos, Asians and Muslims that the fear mongers try to blame for everything are NOT committing mass shootings killing scores at a time. It just is not happening.

    Stop defending the terrorists and trying to shift the blame with your LIES, or admit that you are really one of them.

    — You are correct that Faux “News” has successfully defended some defamation cases with their absurd argument (of course, they have also lost or settled some cases, such as with defamation cases by voting machine companies and workers and election officials they defamed), but there should be stronger pushback.

    While it is certainly true that no REASONABLE person would take assertions by Faux “News” hosts seriously, there are a lot of gullible, ignorant suckers who are NOT reasonable who lap that unflushed toilet water up and do take it seriously. It is still against the law to get away with wrongdoing just because you chose targets who are gullible and stupid.

    Faux “News” should not be allowed to have it both ways. If they are going to claim they are only selling entertainment and not news, they should not be allowed to have the name “News” in their business name. (In some countries they are not allowed to call themselves “news.”) Calling itself a “news” outlet becomes, by their own admission, false advertising, which is not protected under the First Amendment. As a condition for using the disclaimer of not being news as a defense, they should be required to surrender all use of the term “news” in any business name or self description.

    Such rulings that allow Faux to continue to spew their self-admitted garbage as fact are likely the result of “judges” appointed by Bush and Trump.

    It’s OKAY If A Republican Does It

    Yep, that’s what they want us to believe.

    Accuse Hillary of something in a pizza parlor that turns out to be diddly-squat; look the other way when it comes to their own traffickers such (and the traffickers’ friends and enablers) like Matt Gaetz, Roy Moore, Gym Jordan (echoes of Dennis Hastert), Lauren Boebert (whose husband Jayson was convicted and served time for “lewd exposure” to underage girls), right-wing pedophile priests and, of course, Jeffrey Epstein’s best pal Donald “pu$$y-grabber” Trump.

    — Again, as I stated, clearly not all racist bigots are uneducated idiots driving pickup trucks in the Old South with a shotgun and a dog, etc.

    Tucker Carlson himself went to an exclusive private prep school in San Diego (my neck of the woods) and then to Trinity College. He is rich, educated, heir to the Swanson TV dinner family and likely could not possibly drive a redneck pickup if it had a stick shift.

    As I said, the top 1% (the Rupert Murdochs, the Tucker Swanson Carlsons, the Sean Hannitys the Trump heirs) manipulate the other 99% of gullible suckers.

    Again, as I tell TrumpubliKKKan suckers: look in your wallet or check your bank statement to see which you are.

    It is not all of them. It is only the ones who control their right wing hate media.

    And I see that the SquiggleTROLL who, in a rare moment of introspective insight, self-describes as a “FOOL,” is going to throw out a nonsensical word salad with terms it obviously does not understand (or hopes that others don’t) and hopes that its trolling can invite some responses.

    What a poor, pathetic excuse for a “human being.”

  6. about 10 hours ago on Doonesbury

    — Try to remember how today’s TrumpubliKKKan aristocratic oligarchy works:

    The top 1% of what remains in the former “Republican” (now TrumpubliKKKan) party is very wealthy, highly educated (and wants to make sure advanced education remains the exclusive province of the “elites”) and manipulating the uneducated, ignorant, gullible suckers they depend on to keep them in office.

    As I tell Trumpers: top 1% elite manipulators or 99% gullible suckers? Look in your wallet or check your last bank statement, to see which you are.

    The ones who control extremist right-wing hate media are highly educated, but they are racist bigots. Tucker SWANSON Carlson (yeah, the TV dinner family, trying to poison you one way or another), is a wealthy, elite aristocratic oligarch. And he is determined to make sure “those people” (anyone other than rich, white Europeans), the ones he absurdly calls “legacy Americans” forgetting (intentionally) who was really here first, are kept out of the equation.

    Tucker Carlson, in all his insecurities and inadequacies, knows that in a truly level playing field, he would never be able to compete and certainly never able to succeed.

    It is against the law to yell “Fire!” in a crowded movie theater.

    It is against the law to incite violence.

    Tucker Carlson has clearly crossed the line, with overt and repetitive calls to resist his mythological “replacement theory” of racist attacks on African Americans, Asian Americans and Latino Americans.

    The only time there might have been any validity to some version of a threat of “replacement” would have been in the early days of European explorations of the Americas, when Europeans threatened to replace the indigenous people who had been living here and building great civilizations for tens of thousands of years.

    But of course Carlson describes the European invaders as “legacy Americans” which, again, is a supremely racist title when applied to those of European descent. At best, it is a title that could only be claimed with a straight face by those of indigenous descent.

    There is a direct link between Carlson’s promotion of such hate speech and the mass murderers who espouse such garbage as justifications for their hate crimes. When challenged, Carlson does not moderate or back off, he doubles down.

    At the very least, it is way past time for Carlson to be removed from the airwaves, and possibly be considered for prosecution in the incitement of violent hate crimes.

    As for “grooming,” as the ’toon rightly notes, PROgressives are “grooming” the next generation to be tolerant and accepting of the factual reality of our full range of historical reality.

    The UltraMAGA right-wing extremist nut jobs, simmering in their hatred, bigotry, insecurity and inadequacies, have learned to practice the BIG LIE tactic of Joseph Goebbels:

    Project your own weakest vulnerability back at those you oppose.

    It is the communication strategy promoted by Nazi POOPagandist Joseph Goebbels, and perfected by Roy Cohn, Roger Ailes, Karl Rove, Vladimir Putin, Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller and Donald Trump.

    They accuse PROgressives, media personalities, educators and everyone else of “grooming” young people in sexually inappropriate ways to deflect from the reality that trafficking and sexual abuse of young people is what they specialize in.

    Turns out that the Q-Anon obsession with sex trafficking and trying to accuse PROgressives of FAKE allegations of child trafficking such as Hillary Clinton in a pizza parlor is to deflect attention from their own REAL child sex traffickers (and the traffickers’ friends and enablers) like Matt Gaetz, Roy Moore, Gym Jordan (echoes of Dennis Hastert), Lauren Boebert (whose husband Jayson was convicted and served time for “lewd exposure” to underage girls), right-wing pedophile priests and, of course, Jeffrey Epstein’s best pal Donald “pu$$y-grabber” Trump.

    Another BIG LIE from the “alternative “facts’” augmented “reality” of the TrumpubliQan delusion.

    Newsflash: Critical Race Theory is an obscure, arcane concept of academia only taught in advanced post-graduate courses. There is no place where this is taught in any elementary, middle or high school. More scare tactics from those afraid of FACTS and the TRUTH.

    The term “critical race theory” has been co-opted by those who do not want the full, objective, factual truth of all American history to taught … the good (and yes, there is much of it), the bad and the truly ugly.

    Indigenous Americans, enslaved Americans and all Americans deserved to have their history included as part of AMERICAN history in a full, complete and HONEST package.

    The people who screamed obscenities and threw rocks at little Ruby Bridges in New Orleans (who was FIVE years old and trying to go to kindergarten surrounded by four big, scary men with guns) and the Arkansas Nine trying to integrate Little Rock’s Central High School don’t want their grandchildren to be taught that they screamed obscenities and threw rocks at little Ruby Bridges and the Arkansas Nine.

    Sorry, Jeff, but I can’t see your quotes and I don’t believe you. Either you are extremely gullible, or you have some kind of agenda for why you want to discourage people from saving money by going solar, or they are running a racket in Texas that borders on criminal.

    Here in California, I got three quotes, one from a Home Depot subcontractor, one from a Costco provider and one from something else. None of them are anywhere near the figures you cite (all in the $15,000 – $25,000 range for 5kw systems. I went with the provider through Costco. Again, that was 15 years ago and prices have dropped significantly and output improved significantly.

    As for the credits, I have no idea how they work and don’t care. Whatever it was, the providers handled it, they factored them into the price and I just paid a net bottom line single price out the door.

    I was the first person I know to go full solar, but in the intervening years, huge numbers of people living around me, in my family, among my friends, have all gone solar. Many are those who tried to tell me it would never work and after they saw my success, they jumped on board.

    I am in California, but contacts among friends and family I know who have gone solar are also in Nevada, Arizona and Utah.

    I know Texas is hostile to green energy and maybe you have roadblocks put in your way that other states don’t, but if that is the case, your problem is political, not technical.

    Again, I am not talking hypothetically. I am talking about what we are actually doing.

    Whatever your agenda, I encourage anyone to not trust what a comics-section commenter says. See for yourself — simply walk into a Costco or a Home Depot or other provider and visit a kiosk with a contracted vendor and get the actual figures.

    Stop trying to explain why something doesn’t really work to those of us who are making it work very successfully every single day.
