|It is a possibility that Tucker Carlson is about to 'go through some things.'|
Usually, when a noted conservative looks to be involved in a gay scandal, folks on my side of the spectrum have a good time with pointing out said conservative's hypocrisy. If the stories about the one involving Fox News personality Tucker Carlson bears out, this isn't going to be one of those scandals. I'm sure it's going to get a lot of people enraged. And it should. It's not funny in the least.
Recently, there were rumblings that Carlson was attempting to get in front of a huge scandal which was coming his way. If Twitter is accurate, it looks like it just hit and it has nothing to do with his constant racist dog whistling.
Perhaps this is the story that @TuckerCarlson was trying to get ahead of. In his college yearbook, he listed himself as a member of the "Dan White Society."— Travis Akers (@travisakers) April 21, 2021

On Wednesday, that "it" appeared to be, at least in part, Tucker's claim that he was a member of the "Dan White Society" and the "Jesse Helms Foundation" — two groups with decidedly ignominious namesakes, as highlighted on Twitter by author Travis Akers.White, as Akers notes, is the former California politician who murdered San Francisco Mayor George Moscone, and city supervisor Harvey Milk — an LGBTQ+ icon California's first openly gay elected official — in 1978. Long-serving North Carolina Republican Sen. Jesse Helms, meanwhile, was among the most racist, homophobic members of Congress within the past century, having opposed nearly every instance of civil rights legislation and openly calling members of the LGBTQ+ community "weak, morally sick wretches."
The "organizations" do not appear to exist, but if the image is actually from Carlson's yearbook, it paints a very clear picture of Carlson's views at the time.
