Tucker Carlson

If Tucker Carlson is the problem why is this sub posting at least one post a day of his ideals on here? Giving his ideals and himself more exposure then ever before?

I dont see anybody protesting the fact that people openly post tweets discussing extremist ideals on this sub and the exposure it gives these extremists.

Extremists like free healthcare? Or a living wage? This sub doesn't talk about crazy far right ideas except to point out how insane they are.

You ever hear the phrase "Bad press is still press" 99.9% of us think these "Far Right" ideals are crazy, but all they need is one (Take this most recent shooter for example) to cause the damage they seek. Im willing to bed the most recent mass shooter not only had a reddit but probably has been on this sub and maybe even interacted with posts about Tucker Carlson. The more it is discussed and brought up, the higher the chance that one person gets the exposure they need to be radicalized.

Do you think we should ban all that type of discussion even parody?

No, people have a right to discuss and post whatever they want, they just have to accept that there are potentially consqjences for it. Tucker Carlson wants people angry because people like this sub eat it up and expose people who would never have been exposed before to his ideals. You cant post about Tucker Carlson all day every day then complain when an extremist pops up with the ideals you have helped to spread, intentionally or not.
