Tucker Carlson Is Crazy
Before you read any further, just know that I'm not in favor of what Michael Vick did to dogs. What Vick did was disgusting and inexcusable.
However, FOX News' Tucker Carlson went over the top describing his feelings about the Eagles quarterback.
If you haven't seen Carlson's rant on FOX News yet, please watch it below.
He says that, "“I’m a Christian, I’ve made mistakes myself, I believe fervently in second chances,” Carlson said on FOX News Channel. “But Michael Vick killed dogs, and he did in a heartless and cruel way. And I think, personally, he should’ve been executed for that.”
Executed? Really? For killing dogs? So he wants to take a human life for killing dogs? Should we execute farmers for killing cattle in order for us to eat meat? I don't really get it.
Again, I think Michael Vick is having an MVP-type season but, as a pet owner, I can't understand how anyone could hurt innocent animals. But has anyone thought for a second about countless NFL players that have hurt other innocent people?
I wonder if Tucker Carlson is a fan of Ray Lewis? You'll recall that Lewis was indicted on murder and aggravated assault charges. (Lewis' attorney arranged for the murder charges against Lewis to be dropped in exchange for his testimony against the two other guys he was with that night). Lewis is now a cover boy for video games and does numerous endorsements. Is Tucker angry about that? Apparently others have moved on from that. I haven't though.
What about Leonard Little or Donte Stallworth? Those guys were back in the NFL after KILLING ANOTHER HUMAN BEING while driving drunk! Is Tucker upset about that? Apparently not, because Little was a Pro Bowler while the Baltimore Ravens signed Stallworth once he was allowed back in the NFL.
Counless other players have beaten up their wives, pregnant girlfriends, another family member or friend. Is there any outrage there? Was Tucker upset when Broncos linebacker Kevin Alexander hours after he was arrested on a domestic violence allegation? Denver waived the rookie hours after he was charged.
I'm not saying what Vick did is right, I'm just saying that, for some reason, our society turns a blind eye to human beings killing other human beings.
And that's not right either.
