Tucker Carlson's sexist rants reveal an ugly truth

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/mar/12/tucker-carlson-sexist-rants-reveal-an-ugly-truth

"What might be more revealing about the recordings are Carlson’s frequent, repeated and apparently unsolicited defenses of Warren Jeffs, the leader of a fundamentalist Mormon sect that practiced polygamy and ritualized child molestation. “I should make the laws around here,” Carlson says when the conversation turns to Jeffs, who recorded himself raping a 12-year-old girl and telling her to “feel the spirit of God”. “Warren Jeffs would be out on the street.” He also suggests that polygamy should be legal, and calls the then-ongoing criminal charges against Jeffs – who is currently serving a life sentence – “bullshit”. Child marriage is different and less severe than stranger rape, Carlson asserts, because “the rapist made a lifelong commitment” to “take care of the person”. He also exhibits a conspicuously thorough knowledge of state consent law."

If consenting adults want to engange in polygamy, fine.
But I'm not for child rape, child marriage, cult sex grooming or coercion of minors to pressure them into polygamy.

Children deserve to have a family which doesn't force them into thinking they must grow up in polygamy.

And that includes brainwashing and social pressure as well.

That's the new American ruling class there, my friends.

Someone needs to explain to Carlson that Jeffs and his ilk were not making "commitments" to their victims. They were stealing their childhood, and their innocence, and their intention was to continue to victimize them every day indefinitely.

And, I agree that Cheryl's book is a must read.

But I knew some secretary would simply trash it and not give it to him.
