I accidentally watched 10 minutes of Erin Burnett last week. She conveyed no substantive information except to remind me that America’s Media is doing its best to ensure we’ll enter another needless War. It will be a great story to push once election season is over. The lessons of Iraq are certainly not lost on the Media: Sit in Washington, stoke the flames of baseless threats, cover the invasion, then ignore the next decade of carnage. Wash, rinse, pat yourselves on the back.
The Imperial Wheel of Fortune is spinning again. Whose turn is it now? A country who hasn’t unilaterally invaded another sovereign nation in centuries? Naturally.
Tucker Carlson took a break from pushing ‘earth shattering’ unsourced stories about Media Matters being a liberal outlet (oh no!) to chat Iran with Fox News.
Make your mark, you decrepit mutant spawn of the american media monolith and pot pie aristocracy…
CARLSON: I think we are the only country with the moral authority [...] sufficient to do that. [The U.S. is] the only country that doesn’t seek hegemony in the world. I do think, I’m sure I’m the lone voice in saying this, that Iran deserves to be annihilated. I think they’re lunatics. I think they’re evil.
Haha. Hegemony? Someone get this guy a dictionary. Also, maybe Newt can swing by for some historical context – namely that the US + Britain orchestrated the overthrow of the democratically-elected Iranian government back in 1953. Hegemony? hilarious.
But seriously, all 70+ million Iranians (even the vocal opposition to the current regime) are evil lunatics. Evil faux-lunatic Tucker Carlson said so.
