Carlson v. Chuckles

I haven't been doing much posting over at Demokat, so I certainly haven't filled in much for Paul here either. This, however, really got my goat, so I thought I'd cross post over here. I believe it to be true. If it's not, Chuckles is going to have some pretty impressive bloggers calling his ass out, and I don't think even he is that ballsy. Here you go:

Tucker Carlson has had Chuckles, one of us lowly bloggers, fired from his job for mentioning that the Tuckbag visited his place of (former) employment, a video store.

In my opinion, the post was completely innocuous and much, much less inflammatory than anything I would have posted had I run across the slimebag.

Then, last Friday night:

Compare what I wrote to this absolutely true exchange from Friday night when you marched into the store:

Tucker: If you keep this shit up, I will fucking destroy you.
The Genius (Me): Whoah, perhaps you would like to take this outside where you can continue threatening me without disturbing the other customers.
Tucker: *Looks out the window, then back at me* I am not threatening you.
The Genius: You just said you would fucking destroy me.
Tucker: No, I didn't.

I can see where I might have erred in my previous post. I wasn't a belligerent chundernozzle. At one point, Tucker was heard to exclaim

"Don't whoah me"

in response to my attempts to bring the conversation back into the realm of sanity. Since I am a basically nice guy, I even took down the post. Upon learning that Tucker followed through on his threat of destruction, I republished the post that so aggravated him and was allegedly threatening.

Chuckles also relates how just a day or two ago, his former co-worker was hassled by a man claiming to be Carlson's attorney, demanding Chuckles personal info.

This story is being re-posted all over the internets and appears to be truthful. Pass it on. Let's hope Carlson gets his due, if not by legal retaliatory means, then at least via the blogosphere. Hopefully, if it's spread far and wide enough, the MSM will pick up on it.
