Tucker Carlson can't stand Black excellence

From Obama to Ketanji Brown Jackson: Tucker Carlson can't stand Black excellence

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson — the man cheered by white supremacists for repeatedly peddling white nationalist talking points — served up some dog whistle racism on his show Wednesday night with his comments about President Joe Biden’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. Carlson simply can’t believe that Jackson — who would make history as the first Black woman to serve on America’s top court if confirmed by the U.S. Senate — really is, as Biden has claimed, one of the “top legal minds in the entire country.”

Let’s cut through the B.S. This has nothing to do with LSAT scores.
Last week, Carlson claimed that Jackson — who served eight years as a federal district judge before being elevated last year to the prestigious U.S. Circuit of Appeals in Washington, D.C. — was not “much of a jurist,” was “simply ignorant of the law” and that her nomination was an effort by Biden to “humiliate and degrade” our nation — turning it into “Rwanda.” (Yes, Carlson actually said “Rwanda.”)

Carlson went further and demanded to see Jackson’s law school admission test scores because he wants his viewers to believe that she’s not qualified to be on the Supreme Court. Carlson even suggested Biden is intentionally shielding Jackson’s LSAT scores from the public: “How did she do on the LSATs? Why wouldn’t you tell us that?” Of course, Carlson never demanded to see the LSAT scores of the three people then-President Donald Trump nominated to the Supreme Court during his term. But then again, those three are white. Let’s cut through the B.S. This has nothing to do with LSAT scores, which law schools consider in addition to an applicant’s grades. I’m a lawyer, and I can tell you that no one speaks of LSAT scores after their acceptance to law school; nor do those scores indicate how good of a lawyer or judge a law school applicant would be.

This is simply Carlson, like so many other white bigots, trying to diminish Black achievement because such achievement is a threat to the myth of white superiority that he peddles. Carlson wants his viewers to believe that Jackson couldn’t possibly have been admitted to Harvard Law School on her own merit — despite the fact she graduated with honors from there as she had as a Harvard undergraduate.

2. We all know that black Americans must perform over and above others to even be accepted.

Showing her LSAT scores will open up the flood gates to see the LSAT scores all SCOTUS and other judges at all levels. Are the white supremacists ready for that? Tucker, are you ready for that?

16. Why risk assault charges? Just pop a paper bag behind him, and watch Tuckums fall...

to the ground wimpering in fetal position for mommy.

Then just walk away, preferably over his smarmy mushy little racist face.

helpfully,

26. FYI from Wiki

After high school, Jackson studied government at Harvard University. Jackson graduated in 1992 with an A.B. magna cum laude, having written a senior thesis entitled "The Hand of Oppression: Plea Bargaining Processes and the Coercion of Criminal Defendants".

Jackson worked as a staff reporter and researcher for Time magazine from 1992 to 1993, then attended Harvard Law School, where she was a supervising editor of the Harvard Law Review*. She graduated in 1996 with a Juris Doctor cum laude.

* You only get to be an editor of the Harvard Law Review by being one of the top students in your class

9. Would love to know Tucker's SATs, and Trump's too.

Tucker went to Trinity College. Maybe somebody knows somebody who works in the Admissions office there who could access old files.... I'm not saying it's legal or ethical, but it sure would be interesting!

Got totally upset when his racism was pointed out to him. Wonder if he is too dumb to understand these dog whistles? But then, he is a supporter of the orange turd. So, it should be obvious, he is dumb.

Remember that video of some guy accosting him in a coffee shop, telling him what a POS he was, and he was all subservient and got the hell out of there asap. Yeah, he can put it out, but he can't take it, the WIMP.

12. As a rich white man

he was never expected to be more than average or slightly below average to be told he was a stunning, brilliant success.

He believes his own hype: that he is the smartest person in every room.

They all seem to believe it and get very angry when someone who isn't part of their little club makes them think it might not be true.

Swanson foods. Either his Dad or Stepdad hired him right out of college to work at PBS. Oh and he took over O’Reilly’s ready made ratings proof spot (after a brief fill in by their moron Jesse Watters).

23. And yet, if you ask him, he is 100%

"self-made". They always think that they are geniuses who faced and overcame adversity to get where they are today.

It boggles the mind.

14. It's a classic anti-black trope

He’s speaking to the “I’m not racist but…” masses.

Black person has accomplishments over them, there has to be a bug in the system according to them.

15. sounds like he has momma issues too

In 1976, Carlson's parents divorced after the nine-year marriage reportedly "turned sour".[34][44] Carlson's father was granted custody of Tucker and his brother. Carlson's mother left the family when he was six, wanting to pursue a "bohemian" lifestyle.

that I saw from here last night pointed out, some large number of supreme court judges had not been judges (there is no such requirement).

First of all, I am a caucasian lady, Tucker Carlson and all of Fox news is racist, bigoted, malignant, and ignorant ...........I have never and wouldn't watch Fox if someone held a gun to my head- anyone that would watch Fox spew it's racist drivel and actually enjoy it are just like all of them. Kentanji Brown Jackson will make a fine Supreme Court pick. Thank you, President Biden for picking this lady.

What more do you want, you stupid twit? What have you done? Eaten Swanson tv dinners while wearing your bowtie while scrunching your racist face to pretend you're an intellectual.

You were a fool on CNN (as Jon Stewart pointed out) and a fool now.

33. He can't stand being faced with his own inferiority, especially when compared to an accomplished,

 

intelligent black woman. He knows he never achieved anything on his own and I am sure it eats away at his soul. This is his pathetic little defense mechanism for making himself feel better about his own lack of accomplishment.
