Tucker Carlson spent Wednesday's monologue railing against a $40 billion aid package for Ukraine in its war with Russia, as well as the politicians who support doing so - especially Republicans. The House passed the bill Tuesday and it now heads to the Senate.

The Fox News host said that "a sustained propaganda campaign in the American the media has managed to divide the Republican Party."

He said many Republicans believe "protecting Ukraine is way more important than protecting you, than protecting America."

Carlson blasted Donald Trump's former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Sen. Lindsey Graham. He aired a clip of McConnell standing with Senate GOP colleagues, stating, "I think we all agree the most important thing going on in the world right now is the war in Ukraine."

The host reacted by saying, "You've gotta hope that there's some sincere billionaire out there who's gonna fund a primary challenge against every single of those Republican senators standing by Mitch McConnell.

The senators that can be seen with McConnell in the shot were Minority Whip John Thune, and Sens. John Barrasso, and Joni Ernst.

Carlson showed special disdain for Graham, who said on Fox News Sunday that Russian president Vladimir Putin should be removed from power.

"It's weird to see a guy live out his strange little fantasy life on TV live," Carlson stated. "Lindsey Graham won't come on this show. He's afraid."

He praised Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for opposing the aid package before citing some Republicans who voted for it, including Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Minority Whip Steve Scalise, and GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik, and Rep. Dan Crenshaw.

"Of course there was Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger," he said. "And her friend Elise Stefanik. But there was also Republican leadership. Top leadership. McCarthy and Scalise. Shameful."

He explained that his show reached out to Republican senators to ask where they stand on the bill.

"We reached out to every Republican in the Senate to find out what they plan to do," he said. "Most of them didn't bother to reply. None of them will come on this show. That would include Mitch McConnell - the minority leader - Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Chuck Grassley, Mitt Romney also did not respond. We're hoping they'll vote the right way."

Carlson also took shots at GOP Sens. Rob Portman and Steve Daines for their apparent support of the legislation. He also called out Republican Sens. Pat Toomey, Tim Scott, and Cindy Hyde-Smith for having "dodged" his question. He extended an open invitation to any senator who plans to vote the bill.

The white nationalist traitor continues to try and subvert US aid to Ukraine.

Tucker's an idiot on this issue who doesn't speak for most of us right wingers, but he certainly isn't a white nationalist traitor.

“Tucker's an idiot…”

No, he’s an unscrupulous carpetbagger…preying upon those in need of the fix he provides to line his already deep pockets. And that goes for those that give him a forum.

To either justify his rhetoric and/or ignore it is to add fuel to his insidious, incendiary intentions.

The New York Times recently called the Tucker Carlson show the most racist cable news show in history. 

And they had the "receipts".

Speaking of racist receipts the New York Times has a nice laundry list of their own.

But the really extraordinary part of the article is the three paragraphs on anti-Semitism. Brown acknowledges Hitler's vicious anti-Semitism as the core of Hitler's appeal — and notes the terrified Jewish community was fleeing from him — but goes on to dismiss it as a play to satiate the rubes (bolding mine):

He is credibly credited with being actuated by lofty, unselfish patriotism. He probably does not know himself just what he wants to accomplish. The keynote of his propaganda in speaking and writing is violent anti-Semitism. His followers are nicknamed the "Hakenkreuzler." So violent are Hitler's fulminations against the Jews that a number of prominent Jewish citizens are reported to have sought safe asylums in the Bavarian highlands , easily reached by fast motor cars, whence they could hurry their women and children when forewarned of an anti-Semitic St. Bartholomew's night.

But several reliable, well-informed sources confirmed the idea that Hitler's anti-Semitism was not so genuine or violent as it sounded, and that he was merely using anti-Semitic propaganda as a bait to catch masses of followers and keep them aroused, enthusiastic, and in line for the time when his organization is perfected and sufficiently powerful to be employed effectively for political purposes.

A sophisticated politician credited Hitler with peculiar political cleverness for laying emphasis and over-emphasis on anti-Semitism , saying: "You can't expect the masses to understand or appreciate your finer real aims. You must feed the masses with cruder morsels and ideas like anti-Semitism. It would be politically all wrong to tell them the truth about where you really are leading them."

Yet, Enderis’ actions weren’t purely strategic and their consequences were grave. Throughout the 1930s, Enderis helped steer Times coverage to play down Jewish persecution and play up Germany’s peaceful intentions. He kowtowed to Nazi officials, wrote stories presenting solely the Nazi point of view, and reined in Times reporters whose criticism he thought went too far, shaping the news in favor of a genocidal regime bent on establishing a “Thousand Year Reich.”

Other New York Times reporters, most conspicuously Walter Duranty—who deliberately minimized the Soviet famine that took millions of Ukrainian lives in the 1920s—have become notorious for misreporting the news, once time had passed and archives had opened. Enderis, however, has remained largely under the radar. I wrote about him in my 2005 book, Buried by The Times: The Holocaust and America’s Most Important Newspaper , but Enderis’ personal perfidy likely got lost in the transgressions of his employer.

A case in point is the New York Times coverage of Adolph Hitler’s so-called Final Solution – the plan to exterminate all Jews living in Europe. According to Journalism Professor Laura Leff of Northeastern University, “No American newspaper was better positioned to highlight the Holocaust than the Times, and no American newspaper so influenced public discourse by its failure to do so.”  The New York Times , which began publishing in 1851, is regarded as one of the world’s best newspapers. Its reputation for reliable, comprehensive coverage was secure by the early 1940s.  Its foreign correspondents, including 30 reporters stationed in Europe, were well-positioned to uncover and report the Holocaust. Indeed, the Times did not ignore the story. In fact, historian David Wyman argues that “the Times provided by far the most complete American press coverage of Holocaust events.” Yet, as Laura Leff points out in her book, Buried By The Times : The Holocaust and America’s Most Important Newspaper total coverage mattered less than the placement of the news and the frequency of stories about the Holocaust. Although the Times published nearly 1200 stories on the Holocaust during WWII, only 26 of 24,000 front-page stories dealt with the Holocaust, and many of those failed to report the targeting of Jews by the Nazi regime.

Perhaps the fact there was some weird shit in it................................like immigration...............

One of the most curious categories mentioned is the Russian STEM professionals. With the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, it is surprising that the administration believes it will “ benefit ” U.S. national security interests to peel back employer-sponsor requirements and expedite an unlimited number of applications from this foreign adversary.

Normally, these Russian nationals would be subject to  visa caps  that would limit the number allowed to enter the U.S. each year. This certainly seems like the Biden administration’s latest radical, opportunistic attempt to get around those caps one country at a time. And to start with Russia is just national security incompetence.

As far as refugees from Ukraine are concerned, of course, they are trying to escape a terrible crisis, and we should absolutely support the country’s efforts to combat Russia’s invasion. However, that does not mean that Biden or his Department of Homeland Security should get a free pass to once again disregard our nation’s immigration laws.

Just as the Biden administration did with  Afghan evacuees , it is wildly abusing the humanitarian parole system for Ukrainians.

Humanitarian parole allows people who might not normally be eligible for admission into the United States to be in the U.S. for a temporary period for urgent humanitarian reasons.  Parole  was always meant to be used rarely, with strict grounds of inadmissibility in mind, on a case-by-case basis, and for a temporary period of time.  Not so  under the Biden and other Democrat administrations.

Biden’s funding request also specifically  states  that Ukrainian nationals will be eligible for parole and the associated benefits even after a September 2023 deadline if they are found to be a “parent, legal guardian, or primary caregiver of an individual who is determined to be an  unaccompanied child .”

This will in effect encourage some parents, guardians, or even anyone loosely deemed a “caregiver” to  endanger children  and send them to the U.S. unaccompanied so they have a way of coming over later.

These provisions set forth by the administration do not only circumvent U.S. law and set dangerous precedents, they are also not the best solution for those they purport to help.

Encouraging a large group of Ukrainian citizens who are not otherwise eligible to live in the U.S. to travel halfway around the world instead of taking temporary refuge in a neighboring country to Ukraine hardly makes sense.
European Union nations have offered Ukrainians up to three years of residence with “ access to employment and social welfare .” This enables them to easily return to Ukraine when they feel it is safe, and over a million people  have already done  just that. This solution is a far more logical, truly humanitarian option for citizens of Ukraine and will help to ensure that people can go back to rebuild their country when the fighting ends.

The white nationalist traitor continues to try and subvert US aid to Ukraine. 

So where is he trying to subvert the money/aid to John? 

You also know that all of this unpaid for money/aid to Ukraine is ballooning the debt; and adding to inflation? Do you even know how much money/aid we have given Ukraine so far this year in total? 

I found one link- but it only took the total through April of this year.

Table 1. Presidential Drawdowns for Ukraine,
FY2021-FY2022
Date Authorized Amount
August 27, 2021 $60,000,000
December 28, 2021 $200,000,000
February 25, 2022 $350,000,000
March 12, 2022 $200,000,000
March 16, 2022 $800,000,000
April 5, 2022 $100,000,000
April 13, 2022 $800,000,000
April 21, 2022 $800,000,000
Total $3,310,000,000
Source: Department of State and Department of Defense.

There have been bills since then adding billions of dollars to the total. Including the $40 billion mention in your article. When is it going to be enough?

Democrats don't give a rats ass about our borders (They will never spend this type of money on them); but they are going to break the US financially in support of Ukraine's?  Republicans are no better in supporting the Democrat's hypocrisy.

I heard the same bullshit from the government during the Serbian War over Kosovo as I do now. There is was no Serbian domino. Serbia didn't have the military to threaten NATO; or NATO allies. 

By the time Russia gets done fighting in Ukraine they won't have the resources to wage war against anyone; unless it is nuclear. They will have enough problems holding onto Crimea; and the Southern Ports they now hold.  That is if our government and media aren't blowing smoke up our asses on how many losses Russia is suffering; and how well Ukraine is doing.
