Shirtless, Milking a cow? I would be worried about the collapse of testosterone

-3 ( +4 / -7 )

No one actually thinks Tucker Carlson is masculine do they? Honest question. I mean, there are some right-wingers who very masculine, James Caan comes to mind off the top of my head. But Tucker Carlson? I thought he was a closeted homosexual. He comes off as a feminine guy trying to be tough and masculine, and overcompensating.

In his new series, Fox News host Tucker Carlson (pictured March 2019) worries about 'the total collapse of testosterone levels in American men'

Conservatives seem to adore his expressions , tenuous grasp of logic and partisanship.

He was demolished in debate by John Stewart and had to leave Crossfire.

He is a heir to the Swanson TV dinner fortune so my take is that he knows stirring up pointless culture war partisanship protects the interests of his class.

In the midst of these images appears a naked man, arms outstretched, standing high on a rock at sunset in front of a small machine that is emitting an orange light on his crotch.

WTF?

 I thought he was a closeted homosexual. He comes off as a feminine guy trying to be tough and masculine, and overcompensating.

considering the orange light on the naked man's crotch and shirtless men milking a cow.. can't fault you for thinking that at all.

If he’s addressing real health issues, good for him. Fir every single issue from the tribe on the right or the tribe on the left you could write the same “news” article. Namely, that some people from the other tribe are making fun of your thinking /and or presentation.

I remember about 5 years ago the more easily-led and trashy elements of the rightwing were parroting expressions like ‘cucks’ and ‘soy boys’

Appealing to those morons?

The people who find Trump masculine probably do.

orange light on his crotch

Couldn't make this up if I tried. Maybe that is how we got the orange man.

How can any person with a functioning brain take this nut seriously? Well, he is the star of Fox News so that explains a lot of it.

Hmmm... Anyone watched similar nonsense on the trans movement? Or other left wing favourite causes? Loons at both ends of the spectrum spout nonsense sometimes.

Nah! This is W-a-y O-u-t there.

When I first saw the clip I thought it was a parody - like someone taking the mickey out of Tucker.

But no - it's the real deal. Had to watch it twice to confirm - lol.

Neo-cons lost the plot big time with this one.

I’d love to see all these Trump supporters with their beer bellies getting naked tanning their testicles like the guy in the video. Lol. You really have to see it if you haven’t, so funny

This sounds like something out of the Onion or Chris Morris.

Or akin to barechested Putin riding his horse or the Dear Leader making his Top Gun "fire the missile" video.

When you search for it on YT you will find the edited version (without context), the one here:

https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/tucker-carlson-end-of-men-testicle-tanning-1338944/

YT features a lot of mocked-up ones (loved the one featuring the Village People).

Then, there is the original one from The Tuck's own site / accounts (with context) and that when things are really getting weird...

I mean, balls tanning?? Really????

I never pictured together Carlson and masculinity, but Carlson and balls tanning, yeah.

I always thought Tucker was gay - I mean, just look at his bow-tie wearing college pics - he looks like Randy Rainbow....

Have no issue with his lifestyle - just that he's the Kremlin's favorite Fox News talking head...

Comrade Carlson spreading Putin's propaganda each night...

Browny

whatever you think of TC he is definitely not a neo con

The funniest comment on the comedy video of year was regarding the cow milking. If you watch it you’ll notice he isn’t using a bucket. That makes him a cow fondler.

In the picture, he seems to be indicating something with his thumb and forefinger. i’m not sure what it might be...

I'd REALLY REALLY REALLY LOVE to NOT see that.....

Listening to Tucker Carlson talking about masculinity is the same as listening to Caitlyn Jenner talking about it...

Moreover, even the far-right in the US think Carlson has gone too far in his Putin-worship...

Newsmax host Eric Bolling has urged Fox News’ Tucker Carlson to stop creating fodder for Russian propaganda, telling his former colleague, “You’ve gone too far.” Bolling similarly called out Carlson earlier this month and again criticized the right-wing personality on Tuesday for supporting Russian President Vladimir Putin and his disinformation campaign to justify the invasion of Ukraine.

“My compadre continues to push falsehoods that Putin and his propagandists are exploiting to show that, yes, some Americans do indeed side with Russia in this war,” Bolling said in a clip captured by Mediaite. “Is that the side of history ... you want to be on?”

So conservatives, who is right (correct) here - Bolling or Carlson?

Historically he has views and ties that equate to such.

His recent views as an "anti-war" spokesperson and other softer alliances are predictably just a touch of having boots in both camps.

In reality he maintains strong connections with the Con - servative base.

And I esp was pointing my comments at the audience that are likely to praise Tucker's video - Man as Might, let's Fight the Fight. Plenty of neo-cons will love that.

Masculinity certainly about physical traits, make no mistake. What God built you as determines your sex.

But there's more. Being a man is also about being a mature male. And TC has no maturity at all. none. Being a lippy bully and kowtowing to the unmanly Donald trump - that's unthinking, dumb, grossly immature and not very 'masculine'.

Who even listens to this unmanly chump, anyway? Not adult males.

The 1950s called asking for their homophobic grandpa to return.

Conservatives or libertarians are not the same as neo con

And why do people here think that gay men cant be masculine ??

"You could literally just change the voiceover and make this an ad for Grindr," the gay hook-up site, commented one Democratic activist.

I wonder what would happen if Tucker Carlson had made such a comment.

The triggering would be catastrophic.

You mistake triggering for sniggering. Nobody takes this fool seriously.

The short clip, set to the grandiose theme music from "2001: A Space Odyssey," shows muscular young white men wrestling shirtless, milking a cow, preparing a barbecue, doing push-ups and drinking what appears to be raw eggs.

Great theme music. Great movie too.

Nice choice by Tucker. The raw eggs though; I object as a vegan.

I triggered someone.

Again, you are mistaken. I along with everyone else am laughing at this buffoon.

Watch the video and laugh a little. It’s good for you. That and tanning your testicles apparently.

milking a cow

So... not milkmaids, which is sexist of course.... what shall we call muscular, gentlemen with tanned crotches who milk cows? Is this going to become the norm? Have dairy farmers adjusted their hiring practices?

Marjorie Taylor Greene is more masculine than Tinkerbelle Tucker....

He reminds me of a typical gay entertainer that refuses to come out of the closet...

Now that Caitlyn Jenner is a Fox contributor, they can exchange opinions of what jewelry and skirts to wear...

Shirtless, shaved chested cow fondlers by the looks of things.
