A Border Dispute

“Why should the world risk nuclear annihilation over what is essentially just a border dispute between Russia and Ukraine?” So ask the Glenn Greenwalds and Tucker Carlsons of the world. Let us assume, for the sake of argument, that such people are not being directly instructed by the Kremlin to pose the question that way, but that it represents their sincere, independent view...

Two Reflections on The War

Ukraine may well be winning the war at this moment. In fact, the amount of damage and humiliation they have already inflicted on the Russian war machine is a moral victory for the world, on so many levels, regardless of the long-term outcome of the war for Ukraine’s sovereign territory. I say “regardless of the long-term outcome” because it is obvious that the...

Putin’s American Propagandists Looking Almost as Lame as Putin’s Military

When someone as simple-minded as Sean Hannity can see right through you and effectively expose you as an overt propagandist for a murderous dictator and avowed enemy of freedom, you know your talking points have become way too detached from visible facts. Mind you, Hannity, who lost the primetime king war to Tucker Carlson, has an added incentive to revel in this moment...

Leaving Nothing to the Imagination

I have nothing new to say about Vladimir Putin’s official international media celebrity of choice, Tucker Carlson, or Carlson’s official Putin talking point mouthpiece, “Colonel” Douglas Macgregor. The truth is that after two months of explaining and analyzing their duplicity for Putin, their alternative reality optics for Putin, their historical revisionism for Putin, their overt lies for Putin, their blatant cheering for Putin’s...

“Oopsie-Poopsie,” squirms little Tucker

The profiteering populist fraud that is the American “conservative media” is only allowed to survive at this point because its millions of viewers, listeners, and readers, feeling long abandoned by the mainstream, lack the dignity to trust their own ears and eyes, and to remember how thoroughly they have had their hearts and their principles looted by these money-grubbing pretenders who pose as...

Rules for Recognizing a Tyrant’s Propagandists

I am going to show you a short clip of Tucker Carlson, on February 16th, interviewing a supposed retired U.S. Army colonel who, like Carlson, is cheering for Vladimir Putin to regain control of the former Soviet slave states, and ultimately to establish dominance over all of Europe. Why do I describe Carlson’s wishes this way? Because everything Carlson and his supposed U.S....

Blood Money

I see that Tucker Carlson, in the final hours before Vladimir Putin, whom he admires the way many teenage girls admire the boy band BTS, launched his all-out attack against a non-aggressive sovereign country, engaged in a typically stupid pro-Putin screed aimed at fellow Trump bootlicker Lindsey Graham. Senator Graham had dared to criticize the tyrannical behavior of Carlson’s crush, and to warn...

First Reactions On This Day

The world in general deserves this moment, having invited it lustfully for years; but the Ukrainian people do not. Vladimir Putin has been an authoritarian punk for his entire career, and since becoming Russia’s “president” for the first time, has systematically carried out the dismantling of all of his country’s flimsy structures of post-Soviet reform. Every world leader that played footsie with him...

Tucker Carlson Asks A Question

I only happen upon such things by accident, since I do not deliberately seek out totalitarian propaganda, but I see Fox News’ Chief Kremlin Correspondent Tucker Carlson is at it again. On his show recently, Carlson, in his full whining high school debate loser intonation, confronted Republican congressman Mike Turner with this remarkable battery of questions: Who’s got the energy reserves? Who’s the...
