Some days, you even have to wonder about the people that you agree with the majority of the time.
For example, I tend to agree with Tucker Carlson on most things, but sometimes with the way he talks he seems like the type of guy that wants things done immediately instead of playing the long game.
Or, maybe he is living the gimmick as far as he can without upsetting the liberals that are clearly running Fox News now. Ever since the election, things have gotten really weird at that company.
A Fox News host got into a rather heated argument with a Republican governor on March 22, which many conservatives are seeing as yet another example of the formerly conservative news network sliding further left.
There are two sides to every story, and this one is especially difficult. Tucker Carlson is calling out South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, who has been celebrated recently for her refusal to institute authoritarian COVID lockdowns, for her decision not to sign a bill banning biological males from women’s high school sports.
Discussing South Dakota House Bill 1217, Noem stated in a press conference that she would not sign the bill in its current form, and Tucker Carlson took that as a sign that the governor was caving to pressure from the NCAA.
“So you are saying the NCAA threatened you and you don’t think you can win that fight. They said if you sign this we won’t allow girls in South Dakota to play, and you don’t think you can win in court even though the public overwhelmingly supports you nationally, and so you are caving to the NCAA? I think that’s what you are saying?” Carlson asked Noem.
“No. That’s not right at all, Tucker,” Noem responded. “In fact, you are wrong, completely.”
According to Noem, she has been consulting with legal scholars and professors since November on the issue of protecting women’s sports, and the advice she was given was to create a coalition.
“I’m sick and tired of the NCAA threatening states, challenging us and bullying us,” the governor said. “So we are going to build a coalition of leaders, athletes and people who want to protect women’s sports and want to make sure that our women keep Title IX in place to protect their right to be competitive and to be rewarded by participating in these team sports and make sure this coalition can fight the NCAA to make sure we are protecting Title IX.”
