A more nauseating than titillating gay scandal has possibly engulfed Tucker Carlson

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.

According to the online magazine Mic:

 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." 

Raw Story said the following:

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.

Mic was quick to point out that the yearbook page has not been verified by anyone, including Carlson. But in the court of public opinion by way of Twitter, Carlson is presently being skewered, flambeed, and basically dragged and roasted. I will definitely be keeping up with this story as more details come in.
