BONER CANDIDATE #1: WOKENESS IS A CULT RESPONSIBLE FOR CORONAVIRUS

Tucker Carlson has found another way to sicken the airwaves. The Fox News host on Monday appeared to blame the spread of coronavirus on diversity and the “cult” of wokeness. (Listen to the clip below.) In a “Tucker Carlson Tonight” segment about the expanding outbreak of the virus called COVID-19, the right-wing personality joined growing racism against Asians since the virus emerged in China. Carlson claimed the media has underplayed the danger of the virus out of political correctness. “If you think maybe we ought to take some steps to protect ourselves from it, then you’re a bigot,” he said. After citing news articles about racial profiling against Asians (the virus originated in Wuhan, China), Carlson made a head-scratching pivot: “Identity politics trumped public health and not for the first time,” he said. “Wokeness is a cult.

BONER CANDIDATE #2: “IT’S FOR YOU”

Newly released body camera footage from the arrest of a 6-year-old girl at an Orlando school shows an officer placing zip ties on the girl’s wrists as she begs to be let go. A family attorney representing the Lucious and Emma Nixon Academy student released the footage Tuesday of the incident, which occurred in September 2019. The footage, shared with NBC affiliate WESH in Orlando, shows officer Dennis Turner tying the 6-year-old’s wrists and closing his squad car door on her as she cries to be set free. “What are those for?” the child cries as Turner reveals his zip ties. “It’s for you,” the officer responds. In another clip, the student is seen begging Turner to release her as he sits her in his squad car. “Please let me go!” she pleads in the video. Turner closes the door on her shortly after that. Around that time and in an unrelated incident, Turner reportedly arrested another young child at that same school. A police report from Sept. 19 alleges the student who was restrained kicked and punched three staff members at her school, and claims one of the staff members wished to press charges. A public relations representative for the Lucious and Emma Nixon Academy said the claims in the report were false.   Read More
