Tucker Carlson Schools Smug College Student Threatening Violence Because of Trump...
Reaction on college campuses over Donald Trump has gone from hysterical to sad and to back to hysterical faster than a feminist can scream "rape culture!" (see Muslim Woman Votes Trump. Professor Harasses Her For a Month and HIDDEN CAM: Professor Says Trump Election an ‘Act of Terrorism’). Exhibit Q is protesting snowflakes at the University of Chicago, protesting Donald Trump speaking. Actually wait... upon further examination it's not Trump speaking. Turns out his Press Secretary is speaking. Ah. Well, protest STILL ON!
Therefore Tucker Carlson had on Jake Bittle, one of the organizers of the protest. Please note how both intelligence and utter stupidity can happily co-mingle in one person...
BITTLE: Now, we are faced with a real crisis with the election of term. We must take real action, the Ivy League translation of the vulgar give Trump a chance. Real action, human, donating money to the ACLU, to Standing Rock, Planned Parenthood, call your representatives, protest, flipping cars when trump walks away from the Paris Climate Agreement, attacking racists, attacking people in the supermarket, whatever it takes.
CARLSON: I have a bunch of questions. The first is, whose cars are you going to flip?
There's a lot to be said, but first... how much do you wanna bet the college student dressed liked that to bait conservatives into making fun of him on Twitter? If you're going to mock him until he cries on Twitter, I'd suggest you defocus from the bowtie. It's but a distraction.
What should concern you is how Bittle is quite intelligent, articulate and patient. But woven into his "reasoning" are casual insertions of "destroy property" which is never stated out right, but slipped between the lines. It's called "subtext" and skilled, intelligent writers can carry it off with ease.
Bittle is absolutely calling for civil unrest, but hiding behind his excuse of "hyperbolic language" saying he's employing writing style. He's not wrong, but how will his moronic followers spot the difference? For if I was writing to protest-happy snot muffins, and I wanted to make clear I was exaggerating my point for the sake of exaggeration, I wouldn't advocate the flipping of cars. Liberal protesters are known for getting violent quickly. If I wanted to be hyperbolic, I'd suggest the best way a liberal protester could make a difference? Do something completely unexpected: show kindness, tolerance, and a healthy display of grooming. Via showering. With soap. Remove the nose piercing, encrusted with dried boogers. Wash a car rather than flip it.
Imagine how viral a headline would go if it read: "Protesters Remove Nose Piercings, WASH CARS to Protest Trump!" How would you not click that?
In all seriousness, Bittle is a dangerous leader. He's smart, he's smug, he knows how to lead his dimwitted lemmings while still covering his own ass. Stay vigilant out there, guys. Keep your cars washed.
And keep your dogs at home...
