This man is a national hero

This man is a national hero


"I'm not gonna debate you" What part of that confrontation made him think he was looking for a debate?


Right wing pundits are obsessed with the idea that they can demand a debate from anyone at any time. Ben Shapiro does the same shit where he assumes every conversation is a debate and demands that prominent center-left politicians debate him like he means anything to any of them.


[Not quite relevant but this is just too good not to share, member that time the BBC tried to interview Ben Shapiro and Ben lost his goddamned mind over being asked simple questions about his own book and ragequit the interview](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VixqvOcK8E)


The best part of that was him accusing long-time right winger Andrew Neil of being a leftie. An epic failure of an interview.


It cools I got family that thinks Mitt Romney is a communist.


Out of all the Republicans at least he had a spine and voted to prosecute Trump. So therefore he's a communist. (Despite his very conservative views.)


Andrew Niel's calm clapback to that statement is the real best part. just a quick chuckle and then "if you only knew how ridiculous that statement is, you wouldn't have said it." then immediately, calmly, moves on and resumes the interview. completely unfazed. also, his closing line, after Ben Shapiro walks off in rage is killer. he plays the gracious host, thanks Ben for his time and his appearance on the show, and then thanks him "for showing us that anger is not a part of American political discourse." i have seen many people lose a debate. but that is the only time I've seen anyone "lose" an interview. just made an absolute ass out of himself. only thing Ben did right is apologize later and admit he was being a fool.


The whole "I'm popular and no one has ever heard of you response" from Shapiro always makes me laugh. It's almost like he's in a schoolyard trying to convince another kid he's too cool for his own good.


And accused him of clout chasing... While on the guy's show on national TV...


Does he ever lift his head or does he always try to look through his eyebrows?


Probably a habit of perpetually having to look up to others when everyone is looking down on you.


Watching the "intellectual right" debate circle talk to other countries and the interviewer making them answer a question they try to side step is one of my favorite hobbies. Somehow they don't know how ridiculous they look and how unimportant they are on the world stage of politics.


> "intellectual right" an oxymoron if I've ever seen one


Also, the fact that most of the right is so stupid that the ones who fake smart well enough have carved out their own segment called the "intellectual right."


That's his voice? Hahahahahhahah


The best part is Ben Shapiro getting really upset near the end when he realizes he can't "win" and goes with the whole "You're just jealous I'm popular and you're not!"


the shade the interviewer was throwing back too, "well I haven't heard of you either," and "unlike in the US there's not a lot of bucks to be made on the BBC" lol


I saw that you mentioned Ben Shapiro. In case some of you don't know, Ben Shapiro is a grifter and a hack. If you find anything he's said compelling, you should keep in mind he also says things like this: >The Palestinian Arab population is rotten to the core. ***** ^(I'm a bot.

Good bot. Some might say the best bot.


Good bot


Good bot.


Jesus I didn't even listen to him for more than five seconds to get to the question... Such a punchable face


Ben Shapiro DESTROYS Ben Shapiro


I forget sometimes that Ben Shapiro is really only well known among young people on the internet, but he has the attitude of someone much bigger. I saw an interview of him with a BBC journalist who just shut him down with "I don't even know who you are" it was great


Funny thing is that he said to Andrew Neil, the BBC journalist in question, that "I'm popular and you're not" when in the UK at the time Andrew Neil was a lot more well known than Ben Shapiro and people were wondering who this sentient ventriliquist dummy was and why the fuck was he calling Andrew Neil a leftist when he's solidly right wing.

Good bot, accurate bot


Good bot!




And Ben tries to counter with "well I don't know who _you_ are" to one of the most established British journalists alive.




I mean could you? Imagine him trying to talk dirty in his normal high speed cadence.


let’s say, hypothetically, that i’ve been a very bad boy. Logically, do I not deserve a spanking?


Thanks, I fucking hate it


His wife : stop with the hypotheticals , were in bed !!!


His doctor wife, who is a doctor


He uses the word hypothetically too much and sometimes the things he hypothetically speaks about aren’t hypotheticals


"Letssayhypotheticallythatitouchyourpword, and thenletssayhypotheticallythatthesealevelrisetenfeetletssaytwentyfeet, thepeoplelivingalongtheshorelineofyourpwordwilljustselltheirhousesandmovesomewhereelse." I don't know what you're talking about, I'm rock hard.






This made me moist.


Let's just say hypothetically of course that you have been a bad girl


And let's say, for the sake of argument, that your boyfriend needs to teach you a lesson while I watch and cry.


In my personal experience, most people don't use their everyday-voice in bed. But still. I will also avoid imagining Ben Shapiros voice at all if I can.


Seeing him get his ass handed to him by fucking *Neil DeGrasse Tyson* was a treasure to behold. He's so dim he didn't even acknowledge how bad he withered in the face of yet another more capable and educated person's reasoning, [and even uploaded the murder on his own channel](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBxAQYmPHDA). (Or more likely he realizes that his "facts and logic" audience has a huge crossover with people like Tyson's material and knew if he tried to actually fight he would be in a terrible position, so instead just decided to completely collapse and go "haha you sound like a libertarian like I definitely am also")


Ew, I can't watch that shit for an hour.


If Benny boi is a libertarian, then Hitler was a patchouli scented peacenik.


Don't click that link. Don't give him one cent of ad revenue. Not even one second.


I’ll bet she does, with her boyfriend.


Or her girlfriend


If he still had his man card after that it was permanently revoked when he went to Home Depot and bought a piece of wood and put it in a plastic bag then took a pic with the receipt. Literally one of the dumbest pictures I've ever seen.


This always cracks me up, because he’s just a guy who yells on the internet about bullshit. AOC (for example) has a real job.


That touches on a good point. You constantly hear the same people who might listen to him go on about getting a “real job.” Hell, you can’t even work at a fucking Burger King without them telling you that. Yet all this leech does is babble in front of a mic all day.


The funny thing is Ben Shapiro isn’t really terribly awesome at reasoning. I’m sure he debates fine because he has a quick mind and knows a lot of “facts” but if you listen to his podcast (I do. It gets my bile going. I regularly yell at the radio when he talks.) the reasoning and structure behind what he says falls apart after he yaps on for more than 2 minutes about something.


Read his book “True Allegiance”. Or better yet, listen to the behind the bastards podcast read it and ridicule it. You’ll start to question Ben’s intelligence, mostly because he can’t seem to figure out how commas work.


Punctuation or sentence structure in general, really. Benny wasn't smart enough to become a TV writer, but his mom worked on "The Golden Girls" and basically has a license to print money. If *she* couldn't use her connections to get him a job, he must be absolutely incompetent at writing. *True Allegiance* proves this hypothesis.   He's just the Micro Machines guy exploiting the fears of right-wingers instead of selling toy cars.


When I worked in broadcasting; Ben Shapiro was given a tour of our studios and was given the big VIP treatment. This was about 10 years ago. He looks like a teenager, and I remember thinking “who is this twerp?” And now he’s semi-famous. There was something more behind his success than his mother being a writer (although that’s an interesting fact I did not know). He must be some billionaire’s stooge.


*I don’t think the law has any role whatsoever in banning race-based discrimination by private actors* -Ben Shapiro ***** ^(I'm a bot.

Take a comma for ya, babe.


Frank the tank, a bear of a man.


What that book truly tells you is how Ben really feels and the fantasy land he lives in. For those who don't know, in that book, the liberal president tries to start a welfare program called "Work Freedom" (liberals are fascists to Ben). Sadaam's WMDs resurface, they were real all the time they just hid them really well (retroactively justifying Bush's war crimes). What equates to the leaders of BLM orchestrate situations where the police murder a black kid and this is used to guilt governments into giving the BLM leaders power over local governments through powerful oversight panels. And my favorite was when Ben's self insert was saying goodbye to his wife for the last time before one or both of them went off to near certain death. He wanted to kiss his wife but people were watching so he just gave her a hug goodbye. That book is such an open window into the twisted mind of Ben Shapiro and it's funny and a little scary.


"Take a bullet for you babe" as their goodbye to each other makes my skin want to tear free of my body, I cringe so hard


The WMD’s part cracks me up the most. That’s hilarious.


There’s a clip of Ben Shapiro I think on Dave Rubins show (another intellectual heavyweight in the octagon of ideas) where he says something very much to the effect of > I’m religious. I believe God is real, and the scriptures are true. Therefore, the framework and rules within that scripture *must* be correct and logical, because God wouldn’t make incorrect or illogical rules. Therefore, reality *must* be structured in a way where those rules make sense. He literally starts from the conclusions of the orthodoxy of his religion, and works backwards from there to find ~~penises~~ premises that support it. It is literally the opposite of logic or reason.


>works backwards from there to find penises Huehuehue


I ducking hate iPhones, man.


He just gish-gallops. Thats it. He has no real debate skills at all.


also he insists on 'owning college students' like wow you're a grown man who can talk over people who just finished high school. you sure owned those libs.


These are the same type of people who will, if there are no cameras present, turn into utterly belligerent lunatics, even resort to violence to win their "Debate"


You can't win a "debate" with these types, because "All logical arguments can be defeated by the simple refusal to reason logically" RIP Steven Weinberg


Meanwhile he just called someone a coward for not coming on his show after he riled up a bunch of his viewers to send the guys wife and kids death threats.


Tucker looks like mitch McConnell trying to Mrs Doubtfire someone


I haven’t heard Mitch McConnell in the news for a while. What’s he been up to?


Eating lettuce, stalling the democratic process.






Hopefully preparing his will.


I don't think the undead can die.


He will be looking up at us sooner rather than later.


This actually made me cackle in laughter have a free award.


It only works because they both look like and are, soulless husks of men that have something even uglier beneath the surface of the public masks they wear.


It would seem


He’s getting fat fast. I wonder if lying all day and legitimizing white supremacy forces him to down Swanson’s meals to null the moral hole where his heart should be? It’s just a question, I’m allowed to ask questions.


He's a Hungry Man.


I don't have an internet award to offer but I am giving your post a very pleasing glance.


Fucker damn near looks like he’s getting off on the confrontation during the video…


Fox News won a court case by 'persuasively' arguing that no 'reasonable viewer' takes Tucker Carlson seriously.... if only that were true


It’s true. Their audience is entirely unreasonable.


They’re useful idiots with bank accounts.


Reminder: most people in his place would've just claimed satire or opinion. (Check out The People vs Larry Flynt, great movie.) But because Tucker repeatedly asserted that he was serious and that his statements were fact, they went with the incredible douche defense.


The defense wasn't that he isn't taken seriously. The defense was that he isn't engaging in actual journalism, because he isn't stating actual facts. The terms were 'exaggeration' and 'non-literal commentary.'


https://www.npr.org/2020/09/29/917747123/you-literally-cant-believe-the-facts-tucker-carlson-tells-you-so-say-fox-s-lawye The judge: "Fox persuasively argues, that given Mr. Carlson's reputation, any reasonable viewer 'arrive[s] with an appropriate amount of skepticism' about the statement he makes."


Tucker Carlson essentially killed my father who was a refugee from Egypt trying to fit into American culture. Not everyone is unreasonable, some are just desperate to assimilate.


I'm sorry.


I’m so sorry for your loss.


The control of this man to confront Tucker and not yell is amazing.


I was thinking the same thing. And while hes pushing him too!


He deserves a damn award for being so classy while Tucker is being an all out dick


In my southern opinion, there's nothing more threatening and scary than when your momma *could* yell at you but lowered her voice 2 octaves to explain, very slowly, about how she was gonna light up your behind like a Christmas tree after church if you don't stop cuttin up.


I worked as an aide with kids with behavioral issues in a high school....yelling is a sign you've lost control of the situation. The quiet and more clear and deliberate you speech, paired with intense eye contact...is how I got any of those goofy dummies to listen to me.


That direct eye contact gets them. Worked great in school when a student was acting out but not entirely disrupting the class. Direct eye contact and calmly talking to them. I would say it worked 9 out of 10 times and prevented any real disruptions for the other students.


[He'd be in good company](https://youtu.be/3hVCs6bzUS0)


Is there a copy of the video anywhere? Edit: got it, thanks!


google "man confronts t" and it will pop up.


here's the copy I watched: [https://www.reddit.com/r/PublicFreakout/comments/oqxrmr/guy\_confronts\_tucker\_carlson\_and\_tells\_him\_you/](https://www.reddit.com/r/PublicFreakout/comments/oqxrmr/guy_confronts_tucker_carlson_and_tells_him_you/)


“Klansplainer” is so damn good!


If you really wanna see Tucker Carlson get fucked look up the Debate he and John Stewart did on YouTube. Stewart beat him so bad it go his original show canceled by the network.


Crazy he said all of that 17 years ago and people are just now seeing how Tucker is within the last few years.


I never stopped seeing that motherfucker in his bow tie. Even as I imagine him now, with his stupid meme face of confusion, he’s wearing the bow tie. Just like how Bill O’Reilly is just an empty chair and silence.


When he does the confusion face I want to hurt him. It's wrong. I'm supposed to be better than that. It's just.. insulting somehow. To me, personally.


I fully understand this, I nearly argued with my partner over this point not too long ago because I was so sure he was still wearing them.


As the Aussies might say, "He is a right cunt; always has been..."


Fox News saw exactly what Tucker was and gave him his own show because of it.


JS: “How old are you?” TC: “35.” JS: “And yet you’re wearing a bow-tie.”


The man hasn’t worn a bow-tie since


How pathetic do you have to be when someone makes fun of you ONCE and you change your signature look?


To be fair, Stewart roasted him so bad that it got Tucker's show cancelled too. It wasn't your typical bullying.


It was *righteous* bullying


We sorely need a powerful comedian to destroy his show again


The right has become immune to shame.


John Oliver did a [pretty solid takedown](https://youtu.be/XMGxxRRtmHc), but it doesn't hit the same when it's not in person.


I actually like bow-ties, but this mfer ruined them for everybody


I spit my food laughing when I saw this for the first time.


That was like 20 years ago at this point. When Tucker was co-hosting Crossfire on CNN. Fun fact, after that aired CNN canned the entire show. Lol.


Every time this comes up I end up watching the whole interview. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFQFB5YpDZE&t=0


I think you’re talking about the CNN show “Crossfire.” Really what Stewart did is call the show out for heating up the national rhetoric for entertainment. Debunked the purpose of the show and made it totally irrelevant.




He’s the hero we all needed. The part where he tells him “you’re the worst human being” was amazing.


He’s suprised that some one who lives in Montana and looking like this guy would call him out . This happened in Livingston MT. I live about an hour away from there and believe me if I see this guy I’m going to buy him a beer and if I see good ol Tucker he’s going to get a second roasting . But hats off to this dude …


he's a pretty bad ass fly fisherman and is loved by a lot of folks in the outdoor world. can’t believe i have to clarify - i’m referring to the dude calling that thumb-looking mother fucker an awful human.


He needs a gofundme so I can buy him a beer!


/r/GoBeerMe needs to be a thing


I would also like to buy him a beer


The guy should have body slammed him. They love that stuff in Montana.


His name is Dan Bailey. He started his career as a river ecologist in 2007 in Mongolia with the Asia Foundation, which was founded in 1954 by the CIA. He's got a Master's from the University of Montana in 2013. Very well qualifed


r/conservative is really running with that CIA thing.


Wonder what they say about Tucker Carlson always wanting to be a part of the CIA.


I could go ask but they banned me five years ago




You can't say that to me, I'm a man of the people! Look at my brand new shirt! Just like yours, there's your proof, infidel. Bow to me


Is there a video of this or just this still of tucker looking like a scared old lady?


There's a video on r/publicfreakout I believe. I'll look for it. Edit: [Here it is.](https://www.reddit.com/r/PublicFreakout/comments/oqxrmr/guy_confronts_tucker_carlson_and_tells_him_you/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share)


Thank you🙂


Thank you!


His face.... looks like a crisis actor caught


I seriously love that someone has walked up to dick face and told him just what a piece of sub human shit he is. But when I look at this photo, I like to imagine that's it's just some guy who looks like Tucker Carlson, who's just popped into a tackle store, and a complete stranger has walked up to him and said "you are the worst human being known to man". And he's like "*fuck*, how did this guy find out about the shit I post on Reddit?". And then someone places him on a no fly fishing list.


If you love that you'll love [this](https://youtu.be/a6aWW1FmEeg) if you haven't already seen it


I never realized it but Tucker looks like a big thumb with a hair piece


The over-dyed hair of a ridiculous bigot.


Thumb people are by far the worst


The video of that encounter is so cathartic.


The fucker smiled when he realised he was being recorded. Now he'll probably be on fox news or twitter saying left wingers or the dems bullied him. What a slimy person.


What I wanna know is why tucker was even touching this man.


Probably trying to do his whole “Rich guy but man of the people” routine until he found out “the people” know he’s just a lying, profiteering piece of shit.


In all fairness, I believe Tucker was trying to move the confrontation away from his family. Normally I would say leave someone with their family alone, but this dude kept his cool and got his message directly across. People should expect privacy. Celebrities should expect courtesy and compassion. Tucker Carlson should expect mobs with torches and very angry people when he is in public. This is likely why he seemingly avoids public places unlesss in GOP strongholds like Montana. Can’t spew lies, white nationalist rhetoric, and anti vax bullshit and expect to get away with it forever. Fuck him.


Has bitch boy complained about it on his show yet?


I am convinced that Tucker Carlson's mom left him because she got a glimpse of what kind of person he would be in the future. Sadly, she didn't realize that staying may have kept that future from happening.


Worth noting - he's from money - it's not like if he stops being the horrible person he is his life would change at all. He chooses to be this way.


The best part is that Tucker says “my daughter is here” as if he didn’t openly say to call CPS on parents with masked up kids


Is that a wig


It looks like Tucker turned his head so fast that the hair piece stayed in the same direction he was facing in the first place.


That’s what I’m wondering. Time to get that rug refitted.


Racist weave.




I’ll set up that gofundme to bail you out and defense fund. I got you.


I'll chip in.


$100 from me.


Just create a fake gofundme claiming to be a defense fund for a cop being “cancelled” for killing an unarmed black man. His own supporters will jump to donate to that.


Gotta work on your phrasing if you want them to donate. Cop was cancelled for defending his life against a suspected drug dealer.


I’ll donate


I'll throw $50 towards it to bail you out.


I’ve come to the realization that a good way to evaluate your life is to imagine if we actually had “the purge” would anybody come to try to kill me.


Imagine finding out you survived a massive purge after the fact because not only did nobody try and kill you, nobody bothered to warn you or check up on you either.


I got booted from r/politics for threatening to turn his teeth into Chicklets, and I’m good with it.


I got banned from /r/politics for saying that I was gonna throw a huge block party for my entire street the day after mitch mcconnell dies. They told me I could recant and apologize, I responded, " Fuck mitch mcconnell."


OK this is not in anyway related but I just got banned form r/cricketshitpost and I don't have anyone else to tell. In my defense I was speaking truth to power.


I have a list of people I’m fighting on the spot, Mitch, Lindsey, tucker, rush used to be on there, trump, trump jr, Eric trump, all of them simultaneously don’t care. The list is probably longer but you get the picture


I have express permission from my Mama to instigate a fight with Ted Cruz if I ever see him. Help me book winter flights for Cancun to make this dream a reality?


Save Bill O’Reilly for me


Is Tucker trying to do a Jim Halpert look to camera here?


Obligatory link to John Stewart destroying him on his own show. He makes similar points. [John Stewart on Crossfire](https://youtu.be/aFQFB5YpDZE)


Fuck Tucker Carlson.




I love people getting their comeuppance as much as anyone but Tucker literally will be unaffected long-term by any sort of shaming. Most of that side of politics is way too far gone ever actually care that what they’re doing is busting this country. Hopefully this dude at least found this a therapeutic exercise for himself, though. Tucker deserves it, I just wish he cared enough to change


Fun fact, Fox News literally has a vaccine program for their offices around the country. That POS is lying to you. He is literally telling people not to get a vaccine that will prevent major health issues and even death.


Publicly shaming Tucker Carlson and telling him how we all hate him should be normalized and become a thing everybody just does everywhere


Tucker looking like “So you must be wondering how I got here…well, I’m a piece of shit that had everything handed to him who thought he could brazenly lie about anything on TV so much even his own network tells people not to take him seriously…”


Tucker knows, he doesn't care, he has no shame, he has no concern for his own hypocrisy. Tucker wants fascism and he doesn't care how he gets it.


I don't even think he wants that, that's how disingenuous he is. He thrives by getting people to fight. Tearing people and lives apart get clicks. ​ I fell for a fox news video way back and my girlfriend showed me that the source of information can be done by anyone where they were citing and a simple glance over his other stuff shows how eager his views are to change for the controversy.


Wait didn’t Trump their hero start Operation Warp Speed to develop the vaccines? Why are they against it?


It's so crazy how these people sleep at night knowing how many deaths they are responsible for.


These people don't deserve peaceful trips out into the public. They deserve to have their meals disrupted. It's the absolute least that they deserve. They should not be allowed to participate in the society they seek to destroy


Sometimes I wonder how these people sleep at night and then I remember it’s on giant piles of money.


Hope to bump into this man someday so I can shake his hand and thank him for saying what many of us are constantly thinking. This happened in my small MT city, so I may actually get to meet this hero❤️


lol if he had white hair Carlson would look just like my grandmother roflol


It is frightening to think of how many people still worship Tucker and tune in religiously to hang on his every dribble of nonsense.
