Tucker Carlson: Michael Vick should have been executed

vick

In the two days since Peter King first reported on Football Night in America that President Obama had applauded the Eagles for giving Michael Vick a second chance, the story has moved from the sports world into cable news — where there have been some harsh comments for Vick and for Obama.

On Monday there was a fierce debate on Fox News Channel about the matter, but that was nothing compared to what Tucker Carlson said on Tuesday about Vick.

“I’m a Christian, I’ve made mistakes myself, I believe fervently in second chances,” Carlson said. “But Michael Vick killed dogs, and he did in a heartless and cruel way. And I think, personally, he should’ve been executed for that. He wasn’t, but the idea that the President of the United States would be getting behind someone who murdered dogs?”

Video here.

If Carlson supports the death penalty for involvement in dog fighting, his version of Christianity is more of the Old Testament than New Testament variety. For its part the White House says that the purpose of Obama’s call to Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie was to discuss the use of alternative energy at Lincoln Financial Field, and that when the subject of Vick came up, Obama said that he condemns Vick’s crimes but believes convicted criminals should have a chance to contribute to society when they are released from prison.

    I am a Christian minister and conservative Republican and that is the dumbest thing I have ever heard

    Wow. Imagine if Tucker Carlson’s opinionated mattered.

    Executed?? DANG!!! Id admit, what he did was unforgiveable but DANG!! This guy must be related to Lorraina Bobbitt!!

  4. pervyharvin says: Dec 29, 2010 10:43 AM

    Vick was executed last night by the Minnesota Viking defense. I think Antoine Winfield wore the black mask…

    Bowtie-wearing, attention-seeking dbag says what?

  6. thereisalwaysnextyear says: Dec 29, 2010 10:43 AM

    Tucker, they were dogs. I LOVE dogs and have had one my whole life. I consider it a member of the family, so much so that my current dog has two artificial knees.

    When people(Tucker) say stupid stuff like this it ruins the credibility of anything else they say. What an idiot. Executed? C’mon man!!!

    Does anyone believe anything this administration says? What a joke

    Too bad Scooter Libby didn’t play football.

    Shame Shame on Fox. To let this man say this without punishment is very sad. Give a talking head a talk show and this is all he can say.
    Shame Shame on Fox

    Chalk this up to Fox News and their anti-anything Obama does campaign.

    If Obama had not said anything about Vick, Fox would be saying nothing about Vick.

    Look I like animals as much as anyone, but I think this is just another D-list commentator trying to get his name back out there, because I along with most people out there have no idea who he is.

  15. giablommi says: Dec 29, 2010 10:47 AM

    I have no problem with this statement.

    I will give him this, Dog Drowny is a grade A con artist, he was lying and unremorseful right up to the day he went away, and the guy has gone a wonderful job in conning the gullible and naive American public into thinking that he has magically grown morals, a soul and a conscience in the last 3 years.

    Well he hasn’t fooled me, and to you dopes who preach forgiveness and second chances only do so because this guy can run fast and/or is fun to watch on Sundays. If he was a pedophile, I believe you’d be just as forgiving as long as he entertains you and your empty, meaningless lives. If he couldn’t play football, you would be asking why is he back out on the street. You people are sickening hypocrites.

    I say execute him. He is unredeemable worthless subhuman trash, and I don’t particularly care what the “good book” says about forgiveness.

    To the Chamber, Drowny!!!

    What it says on Wikipedia under “Family and Education” for Tucker Carlson:

    His favorite football team is the Philadelphia Eagles and his favorite player is Michael Vick. Despite being a Vick fan, Carlson did remark on the December 28, 2010, edition of the Fox News program Hannity that Michael Vick “should have been executed for [dog fighting].”[9]

  17. georgiavol91 says: Dec 29, 2010 10:48 AM

    TC is an absolute moron. I can’t decide if he should be kicked off TV forever, or stay on TV to show the world why Liberals should never be in charge of anything more important than a popsicle stand.

  18. stealthjunk says: Dec 29, 2010 10:49 AM

    Didn’t CNN “execute” Carlson a few years ago? How in the world does this no-talent guy have a job?

    I strongly support the death penalty and I’m by no means a Vick or Eagles fan, but good lord, I hope someone executes Carlson for making such stupid remarks and does the gene pool a favor.

  19. beefsbrother says: Dec 29, 2010 10:49 AM

    If Carlson was looking for a way to eliminate any shred of credibility for the rest of his life, he did a great job here.

  20. topherclosson says: Dec 29, 2010 10:49 AM

    It’s people like him that give Christians a bad name. We’re suppose to forgive others just like the father would us. He said he makes mistakes too?! Well you just made another one. He should call himself Jewish if he’s going to use the old testament as a guidline.

  21. tnphinsfan says: Dec 29, 2010 10:49 AM

    “Thats racism man. I love to racism, bro!”

  22. thejuddstir says: Dec 29, 2010 10:49 AM

    I don’t necessarily agree with Carlson that Vick should’ve been “executed”, but I do get his point. There is no way that the President of the U.S. should even comment about someone like M. Vick. That discussion should be for psychologists and sports writers (lol). It is far too soon for people of the President’s stature to be including themselves in a discussion whether or not a convicted felon is “reformed”. Let’s not forget that shortly after Vick was released from prison he was “involved” in a shooting of his own cousin, the cousin that led to Vick’s dog killing life to be exposed. While Vick has been legally exonerated from involvement in that shooting, it doesn’t take an “Einstein” to read between the lines to figure out what actually took place. If my henchmen shoot a person I can obviously claim “no involvement”, especially when they are willing to take the fall for the act. Vick or any other convicted felon need to show me no less than 15-20 years of “good behavior” before I am ready to say they have changed and the President of the U.S. shouldn’t even involve himself in the discussion at all.

  23. FinFan68 says: Dec 29, 2010 10:49 AM

    Tucker is a moron. He sometimes makes a decent point but this comment was ridiculous. Just a pompous idiot. BTW…Vick has not served a single day in jail for “killing” dogs. He did time for the gambling ring/dog fighting.

  24. flyerscup2010 says: Dec 29, 2010 10:49 AM

    I wonder if he’d tell Michael Vick to his face that he personally believes he shouldn’t be allowed to be alive right now.

    He wouldn’t, because he’s a blowhard coward. This has absolutely nothing to do with politics and absolutely everything to do with being a tool. What a total scumbag.

  25. burntorangehorn says: Dec 29, 2010 10:50 AM

    Carlson wouldn’t have made such an extreme statement about Vick had Obama not defended him.

    I really like Obama and most of what he’s done, but his statement really irked me. That said, Carlson’s wrong. I don’t think Vick has any business putting on an NFL uniform ever again, but executing him would be idiotic.

  26. acmepacker says: Dec 29, 2010 10:52 AM

    Carlson is a Christian? Good thing he told us because it’s kind of hard to tell. I thought Christians were about redemption. At least that was what I was taught. People change, and for whatever the reason for it, I believe Vick had an epiphany.

  27. myasylum11 says: Dec 29, 2010 10:53 AM

    Who cares. Its just another opinion.
    I don’t think he should have been allowed back to the NFL at all! Does anyone care what I think? No of course not. So who cares what this guy has to say either. It’s just yet another opinion!

  28. n0hopeleft says: Dec 29, 2010 10:54 AM

    Carlson will have his wish.

    When Vick blows the Eagles chances of winning it all (if he didn’t already), they will execute him just as they did McNabb.

    Karma is a mofo.

    The Philadelphia Eagles: Choke artists of the century!

  29. pastabelly says: Dec 29, 2010 10:54 AM

    I guess your point is that “Christians” should be against the death penalty and not really football related. Maybe Carlson went overboard on this one. But let’s face it. Vick, and anybody else who tortures and kils dogs, is criminally demented. That’s a fact. That he served time in prison for his actions allows him to resume his life and pursue his career. But the whole Obama involvement is somewhat creepy. Of course, there are other issues in Vick’s history including the “Ron Mexico” days where he had sex with women without disclosing that he had the herpes virus.

  30. jimmysee says: Dec 29, 2010 10:54 AM

    If we are going to begin to redefine what constitutes a capital crime, how about wearing dumb bow ties on television and making stupid statements.

    ======================

    I always love this argument.

    Listen, I completely disagree with Carlson, obviously we shouldn’t execute people for animal cruelty, but what exactly are you trying to say here?

    What does the fact that Mike Vick could beat up Tucker Carlson have to do with any of this?

    Besides, if Carlson said it to Vick’s face, MV probably wouldn’t do anything because he’s on probation. His brother would just have someone shoot him in the parking lot.

  38. myspaceyourface says: Dec 29, 2010 11:00 AM

    Animals vs. Humans

    1. People don’t get this upset over all of the aborted humans

    2. People don’t get this upset over the death penalty

    3. People seem to have an unhealthy relationship w/ animals

    While what Vick did was horrible and mean, it doesn’t compare to human life. . .

  39. carryingweight says: Dec 29, 2010 11:01 AM

    Pervyharvin you beat me to it. Respect.

  40. deathmaskdivine says: Dec 29, 2010 11:01 AM

    You morons believe he was serious, lol.

    Oh and I love in the post how you simply state Vick was involved in dog fighting. Not one mention of the brutal torture he imposed on the dogs. Not one mention of the fact of how he beat dogs to death, just that he was “involved in dog fighting”.

    Sorry either a person is capable of such acts or they are not and if you are, you cannot be “reformed”. I do think he should have been allowed back because you shouldn’t be able to stop somebody from working but we haven’t heard the last of Vick committing crimes.

  41. meattuperello says: Dec 29, 2010 11:02 AM

    It wouldn’t break my heart to have someone put this POS down. He doesn’t deserve to be playing in the NFL, and that is Goodell’s biggest mistake by letting the motherless POS back in the game.

    He should have been kicked out again after his birthday party and should have landed back in prison for associating with felons which in this case translates into friends in family.

    On that note he would still be in a Virginia prison if it wasn’t for him having the local racist DA in his back pocket tipping him off and taking care of him like family..

    Watching him jump around in the locker room after that Giants game just showed the true Mike Vick and not the fake one that put out in front of cameras 9 times out of 10.

    He will make some wrong choices and be back in prison before long.

    Screw him and every single person that supports him. It is that simple.

  42. iluvwikileaks says: Dec 29, 2010 11:02 AM

  47. rhf123 says: Dec 29, 2010 11:07 AM

    Sadly, this is what modern-day Christianity has become: a religion of the power elite with mercy specifically restricted to those who have money and prestige and with no room for forgiveness and down-right contempt for the poor. I think Jesus came just for people like Mike Vick, to give those who society has given up on a chance to pick themselves up.

    Mr. Carlson should be fired on the spot but instead, seeing that he was on Fox News, he will be promoted and given his own show. Pathetic.

  48. ballotpull says: Dec 29, 2010 11:08 AM

    faux news? is this a new reality show or something? Never heard of such a stupid thing…..

    Amen!

  50. richm2256 says: Dec 29, 2010 11:10 AM

    Wow. Execute him?

    Gotta roll that one around a bit.

    What Vick did was despicable; torturing dogs, beating dogs, electrocuting dogs, forcing them to fight to their death, smashing dogs to the ground until they’re dead, drowning dogs. Sick, twisted mother for doing all of that, let alone the gambling operation, the lying right to the top, the herpes crap, the water bottle crap, etc.

    But executing him for it?

    I definitely think that before Vick was allowed back in society, perhaps they could have given him a taste of his own medicine with beatings, water-boarding, shock treatments, put in a cage with other inmates to fight until one of them was unconcious while guards bet on the winner…….

    but have to say “no” to executing him.

    Besides, it’s more fun to see his career die a slow death by being publicly humiliated by the Vikings on national television. Pardon the pun, but last night, Mr. MVP played …… like a dog.

  51. andrewisker says: Dec 29, 2010 11:10 AM

    First of all, Mr. Smith, there is no dichotomy in Christian theology between the Old Testament and the New Testament beyond that page between Malachi and Matthew.

    Second, there is no law in the Old Testament applying the death penalty with regard to killing animals. The only application of the death penalty with regard to animals is bestiality. So unless Tucker Carlson is privy to something Michael Vick did with his dogs that we aren’t, Tucker Carlson is much closer to Christian heretic practicing animal idolatry than Christian.

  52. benh999 says: Dec 29, 2010 11:12 AM

    Maybe he should’ve just wished Vick got AIDS from a transfusion. Then he could be worthy of PBS.

  53. ultimatebriand says: Dec 29, 2010 11:12 AM

    Yep, that’s what I’d expect from a guy like this. Another loud mouth making Christians look ignorant and holier-then-thou.

    SHHHHHH worry about the wildcard vs Packers/Saints.

    I would be if I was an Eagles fan after that sorry display last night.

  60. bohmore says: Dec 29, 2010 11:23 AM

    All you people who agree with this joke are so hypocritical it isn’t even funny. If Vick fought and killed a bunch of roosters you people wouldn’t care at all. Since when did dogs become on the same level as a human being? I don’t agree with what Vick did at all, I think it was terrible, but he did his time and everything he that was asked of him. Who are you people to judge him. If this was you would you want people condemning you for the rest of your life? Who are you say he doesn’t feel sorry for what he did, can you read his mind? If Vick was a postal worker you wouldn’t care about this at all. But since he makes a lot of money playing football you get bent out of shape b/c you are jealous of his money and job plain and simple. He asked the NFL to come back and they said yes, so be mad at NFL not him.

  61. tiffpats4eva says: Dec 29, 2010 11:24 AM

    pastabelly,

    Umm, what’s creepy about Obama applauding the owner of the Eagles for their move to alternative energy, and then thanking them for giving a former inmate a second chance because most felons coming out of prison don’t usually get a second chance?

    Is it creepy because you don’t like Obama?

    It’s a bit disingenuous to label that creepy.

  62. scytherius says: Dec 29, 2010 11:27 AM

  63. joe6606 says: Dec 29, 2010 11:27 AM

    When a-holes like F_cker Carlson are permitted to say trash such as this on the airways, it makes me start to think that China’s squashing of free speech is a good thing.

    STFU man…

    I’m a huge Vick hater (think he’s always been overrated/underperformer)

    I’m a Republican

    and I think this has to be the most retarded thing I’ve ever read.

    People kill other people every damn day, and many never see the insides of a prison cell, or go for very brief periods (esp drunk drivers).

    He served his time for killing animals..not someone’s pet. animals that were bred and raised for no reason other than to kill or be killed.

    Leave Vick alone

  67. vtsquirm says: Dec 29, 2010 11:29 AM

    giablommi, i think you bring up some interesting points. you’re probably right about Vick. If he wasn’t a football player, the public probably wouldn’t care if he got a 2nd chance or not (they probably wouldn’t know about him, in which case he would have a 2nd chance because there would be no public backlash). We certainly would be hesistant to give a pedophile another chance as well. But pedophiles have restrictions in place so that they are “watched” going forward. I think it would be appropriate to have Vick monitored in a similar fashion.

    I’d like to know how you know Vick is deceiving everyone though. True, he certainly has a motive to do so. But why have prisons if no one can be reformed?

    I’ve watched Vick since day 1 of his career -NEVER before did he purposely and continually try to give the ball away, either by reckless fumbles or by throwing the ball on target to the defensive backs like he did last night.

    Who got to him before this game yesterday? A football gambling operation or his old gambling on dogs buddies?

  78. cardsmac says: Dec 29, 2010 11:42 AM

    Carlson needs publicity and is most likely jealous Vick, a felon, will receive a much larger contract than Carlson could ever hope to see.

    Considering most released felons are undereducated and lack any professional skills on top of their felon status, it’s quite difficult for most released felons to find work. Obama should comment on Vick because he sets a positive example for a country with one of the highest incarceration rates in the world.

    What President Obama said is also ridiculopus, in view of the fact that Michael Vick has received more than ONE “second” chance.

    Like all thugs, Vick will return to his thug ways at some point, and then everyone who seems to think this piece of detritus now, will be doing some serious back-pedaling.

    I wonder if he’d tell Michael Vick to his face that he personally believes he shouldn’t be allowed to be alive right now.
    ======================

    I always love this argument.

    Listen, I completely disagree with Carlson, obviously we shouldn’t execute people for animal cruelty, but what exactly are you trying to say here?

    What does the fact that Mike Vick could beat up Tucker Carlson have to do with any of this?

    Besides, if Carlson said it to Vick’s face, MV probably wouldn’t do anything because he’s on probation. His brother would just have someone shoot him in the parking lot.”

    my point was never that vick WOULD do something. my point was that carlson WOULDN’T do it.

    Christ is about changing the inner man through his Spirit indwelling the man. Only Mike Vick and Christ know if this has happened. None of the rest of us will know until some of us are with Christ in Heaven and find out who else accepted Christ’s forgiveness before they died. It’s very hard to accept that all sins can be forgiven, but were it not so, Christ would not have forgiven the criminal hanging next to him on the cross. Christianity is all about the grace of God, not the works of men.

  98. kingjoe1 says: Dec 29, 2010 12:07 PM

    Good for him. We need to use capital punishment much more often than we do in this country. Why waste a million dollars housing a violent criminal for 20 years? Kill the person and spend the million on something useful, like food for the poor.
    Obama has given more money to people who don’t work than any previous president. He has raised the cost of living for hard-working Americans to pay for these handouts. The NBC/Comcast deal is prime example of his backdoor taxes. He makes Comcast charge more to paying customers so that the poor can get free internet.
    Tucker was just saying what many Americans already have, this is not a big deal.

    I am a progressive and defender of animal rights. I hate what Vick did. But, he doesn’t deserve the death penalty. He served his time in prision. He was punished for what he did. I hope he matures from this. A good, open-minded liberal also believes in redemption and second chances. So, that’s my take.

    But, it’s funny to hear a right-wing whacko sounding like a spokesman for PETA. Ha!

    I’d like to know how you know Vick is deceiving everyone though. True, he certainly has a motive to do so. But why have prisons if no one can be reformed?
    ===========================

    Maybe he’s just playing the percentages. Vick in his life has:

    -attempted to deceive authorities by having special water bottles with false bottoms to conceal drugs

    -attempted to deceive bankruptcy courts by putting his money and assets into family and posse member’s names

    -attempted to deceive investors in his companies while misappropriating their money

    -attempted to deceive sexual partners by lying about being infected with Herpes and then receiving treatment under a fake name so they wouldn’t find out he had infected them

    -attempted to deceive authorities by concealing his dog fighting operations in black buildings in the woods behind his mansion.

    I guess giablommi is just skeptical that 18 months in prison could turn a lifetime criminal into first class solid citizen.

    Especially one that is on probation and playing for a contract.

  104. mobuccsfan says: Dec 29, 2010 12:19 PM

    Okay, so this is exactly my big issue with Christianity, media/journalism and democracy/politics. They are all severely corrupt, misguided and broken. Fox News is the worst in my opinion but they are all terrible and everything is so manufactured. It’s like they are all a bunch of puppets, afraid to do any real journalism anymore, again, in my opinion.

    For this man to go on TV and say something like that, well it’s as bad as politicians and public figures calling for Assange’s assassination. Please. Get real. Why not just let the justice system run it’s course with Assange as it almost has with Vick. Furthermore, why not find the moles and rats leaking the info…I would believe that is the more dangerous. If someone gives me information and it appears to be legit/credible, then I proceed to do a story. That is what media is supposed to do, so people are an informed public.

    I used to love watching Vick and I’m a Bucs fan but what he did was still terrible. Yet, we must forgive and let people have an opportunity to redeem themselves and change. That is possible, regardless of what religious or political view you may hold.

    Although Obama supports alternative energy and was calling primarily in regards to that, I agree the he has more important things to address and comment on then the Vick thing. However, (see,, I’m being fair, balanced and objective) the POTUS or any other public figure are entitled to opinions as well, thanks to that First Amendment deal some may want to read about in our Constitution. And also, they are often put on the spot and answer questions when asked. Isn’t that better, even if they don’t always tell the truth, than sitting, silent with a dumbfounded look upon their face? I would think so.

    Overall, I think too many things get blown out of proportion but the things that are most pressing, important and matter most, get overlooked, barely discussed at all, which is another problem. Again, just my opinions.

    Of course, if we were to apply your pious standards across the board, that would mean at least half the Republican party will need to be executed before the next sunrise.

    All this little runt is doing is wrapping himself in the American flag and dragging his cross behind him as he scurries over to the Fox offices to see if his ratings have gone up after his pale grab for attention.

    Having an opinion is everyone’s right but you might ask the Cambridge MA PD whether an INFORMED opinion is more worthy of a POTUS.

    that guy has absolutely no idea what it means to be a christian. i cant stand the act of claiming to be christian, but haven’t the foggiest clue what it means. the guy needs to learn how to forgive people, cause god wont forgive him until he learns to forgive others. besides the sin wasn’t committed against him, and he is not the judge or jury in the case so he needs to shut up and just forgive already, and stop judging as god will use that same measure stick against you.

    as for what vick did. people kill people and get far less. i think its a disgrace that laws protect animals more so then humans. i’m not saying his sentence was to light. but i’m glad that he took the time to grow up and has learned from it.
    if he truly hasn’t, well its his life to lead. hopefully he continues to think before doing stuff.

    It is a revelation to me seeing the anti Fox comments. When I watch the news I cannot fail to notice the liberal and conservative view points put forth on Fox. This is lacking on the other major network broadcasts. The line up of liberals on many of the networks does this nation a disservice. Both sides of an issue need to be discussed to reach a solution to problems. Carlson, who I do not agree with, has resorted to the tactics used by CNN, NBC , ABC, CBS and PBS. Only the Fox network has allowed both points of view to be heard. Many of you who are young and have been brainwashed by your college professors or prison guards should get your nose out of your Crackberries and read a little undoctored history. It is a revelation to understand that former members of the media supported this country and its’ values. People who obeyed the law used to be considered the ones to admire.

Since when did dogs become on the same level as a human being? I don’t agree with what Vick did at all, I think it was terrible, but he did his time and everything he that was asked of him. Who are you people to judge him. If this was you would you want people condemning you for the rest of your life? Who are you say he doesn’t feel sorry for what he did, can you read his mind? If Vick was a postal worker you wouldn’t care about this at all. But since he makes a lot of money playing football you get bent out of shape b/c you are jealous of his money and job plain and simple.

    For its part the White House says that the purpose of Obama’s call to Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie was to discuss the use of alternative energy at Lincoln Financial Field, and that when the subject of Vick came up, Obama said that he condemns Vick’s crimes but believes convicted criminals should have a chance to contribute to society when they are released from prison.

    ————————————————-
    Story I read was he called about Vick, the green thing was a secondary part of the call. This is just spin so the White House doesn’t get flak over having the president call about Vick.

    It doesn’t matter that Vick is getting a second chance, it won’t be long if he keeps taking the beating he is. Eagles 1 and done in the playoffs because Vick is playing like $4!t right now.

That’s what the Eagles head said. So, ugh, Obummer, right away made his personal point of the call known.

    Yeah, he wants to talk about energy. Took him how long to go see the oil spill? Has the guy been to Arizona to deal with all the crime going on at the borders?

Dogs are animals and are apart of natural selection they are not humans … we kill to eat our food daily and no one complains … I love my dogs and i like aggreession out of my dogs and i f they fight oh well fight to the survival.

Those animals are cooped up in tiny cages force fed crap and given a rediculous amount of hormones but no one says anything. What vick did was very wrong but what these corporations do is just as bad. Vick served his time (should have been longer) and asked for a second chance and the NFL said yes. He has people like you guys judging him on a daily basis, i think thats enough for him. For those of you christians out there who are comparing vick to a pedophiles and dogs to humans, its made clear in genesis that God has power over man, and man has power over animals. if you are a true christian than let god judge him, not you.

    You know, all the folks out for Vick’s blood, Tucker Carlson included should remember that our legal system is based upon the principle of ‘You do the crime, you do the time’, and then it’s a clean slate.

    People may disagree with how long his sentence was, either for more or for less, but the fact remains, Vick went to prison. He didn’t get let out in 60 days like celebrities often do, hell, if they serve that long.

    I love dogs also, and I think what Vick did was deplorable, and a terrible thing. But, giving him the opporunity for a second chance is what our country’s laws are all about. If people can’t be rehab’d then why the hell do we have prisons? Why isn’t every criminal executed…surely they’ll just turn back to a life of crime…right?

    You may not like how the laws are setup, but blaming Vick because of that, is stupid. Change the laws, and see people do more time, or be executed whatever. But, in this country, if you do the time, you’re supposed to be afforded a second chance.

    Carson doesn’t give a lick about dogs or animals, but he does hate Obama, so that’s enough to come out in support of “executing” someone Obama thinks is a feel good story.

    I think Obama should have stayed the heck out of this. He’s got enough to do without supporting an animal abuser (in my opinion akin to ANY violent crime against ANY animal or human).

    As for the President applauding Vick getting a second chance, would he have done the same thing if Vick were caucasian? Somehow, I doubt it.

    90% of the clothes you wear are made in sweat shops overseas but yet you buy more. There are far greater crimes then breeding and fighting dogs, yet this guy should be executed? Point of all this is forgive a man because he did everything that was asked of him. I bet many of you would be singing a different song if this happened to a family member or friend. Whould you really cast away your mother, father, brother or sister if they did this and did everything that was asked of them, would you really? Think about it?

    So the comment was extreme but you are focusing the Christian piece or capital punishment, you have missed the point. This man is not a role model and by the NFL embracing him once again is shameful. A second chance would be if he beat/tortured a dog once and then stopped after realizing his mistake. To engage in this deviant behavior over and over only speaks to who Vick is at his core. This is far beyond a second chance. It would have been poetic to have the public wash their hands of him despite his talent. That would be the best example we could give to future generations.

    You obviously have never read the Bible, dude:

    “And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand;…a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth. And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.”

    A bit over the top.

    Vick should NEVER have been allowed to play again. As one person said, if Pete Rose was banned from baseball for life- Vick should have been too. With that said, The proper punishment would have been to put Vick in a cage with rabid pit bulls and if Vick can escape, he is free to go. But as the idiot in chief says, everyone deserves a second chance……. Unless you are at Gitmo or an innocent kid being bombed by drones ordered by Obama or wildlife in the Gulf who were allowed to die in oil.

  152. ruggerlad says: Dec 29, 2010 2:20 PM

    Tucker is a danger to society? Serial killers start with animals and Vick doesn’t show remorse. I would not have lost any sleep had he been executed.

    Vick didn’t deserve a second chance! ‘God’ is a fairy tale created to control and exploit the masses, used for people to ask for forgiveness after doing horrible things or to help cope with the thought of death.

    Happiness comes from helping others and keeping a clear conscience. Going to church doesn’t make you a good person. Being good to the planet and other life does.

  153. tomlovestroy says: Dec 29, 2010 2:23 PM

    Oh Great…I am a Christian. 99% of Christians would not say something so stupid as Tucker said. It seems Tucker has a problem with Obama and maybe that caused the ridiculous execution statement. He should know that Obama can very eloquently deliver what is obvious – when the teleprompter is working.

    I’m curious though – exactly how does being a pro QB contribute to society? The ONLY thing his coming back to the NFL shows is that you will be forgiven ANYTHING so long as you can throw (or run or tackle)

    To put Vick back on top after his prison term does not serve anybody – least of all Vick.

  157. mannyicey says: Dec 29, 2010 2:44 PM

    crumpledstiltskin-

    So that scripture justifies Tucker Carlson’s wishes to kill Mike Vick? How?

    Oh, and this is something that you should learn when interpreting scriptures as a Christian: Can you corroborate the Old Testament scripture with a New Testament one?

    In short, my bible teaches me that “All have sinned and have come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). That means that according the Tucker’s theology, Tucker Carlson deserves to die right along side of Vick. Why? Because Romans 6:23 says that “the wages of sin is death.”

    But Tucker isn’t dead. Nor is Vick, because the bible also says in the same passage that “the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

    Here’s why I am offended: I take great offense when people say that they are Christians as the backdrop for their un-Christian actions. But at the same time, this also proves how tolerant Christianity really is. See you can blaspheme God with your actions and still have grace and mercy extended towards you.

    In other words, we don’t need to kill Tucker for blasphemy. What I would really want to do is teach Tucker the bible.

  158. ruggerlad says: Dec 29, 2010 2:47 PM

    So now who is worse in your minds: Michael Vick for murdering dogs in a highly disturbing way or this guy who says Vick should have been executed?

    People here seem to be more angry with Tucker Carlson for what he SAID someone deserves than Michael Vick for HORRIBLE CRIMES HE ACTUALLY COMMITTED OVER AND OVER. Vick is sick in the head and deserved much worse than he got. What is wrong with you people?

  159. lanflfan says: Dec 29, 2010 2:50 PM

    Is it that surprising this talking head is that angry? How many wedgies, swirlies, and other assorted childhood pranks did he endure with a name like “Tucker Carlson”?

    If you don’t like what TC says don’t watch or listen. His words do not bother me, it’s his OPINION. I certainly don’t agree with what he said in this clip – but he is free to say what he want’s. If enough people don’t like what he says they will not watch – his ratings will go down and he wont have a show or be a contributor on others.

    If you don’t like Fox News don’t watch or listen. However don’t confuse the “news” with one of their opinion shows – it’s two different things. I try not to limit myself to getting information from just one source.

    I personally think that this article should not have even been posted here. Leave the politics out of sports!

Sounds rather hypocritical to me, don’t ya think? In case you missed part of the story, it was not about him being reformed, it was about allowing a second chance. And I’m sure you were there to know if MV was involved in the shooting of this gentlemen that came uninvited to a private party. People like you and Tucker just will never forgive, so continue to rant and spew your hate brother. If henchmen had been willing to take a fall for his behavior he might never have gone to jail douche. Now we see why Obama called the republican Lurie and said, thanks for allowing a second chance because asses like you want them to wait 15 to 20 years to show they have changed. Get a life dude!

I weep for your kids and your wife.”
    ^^^^^^
    wow, you could not be any more off base.

    First off, I don’t know what an “Old Testament nut” is because I don’t live my life based on an ancient book, neither god (excuse me, God) nor religion play any role in my life whatsoever. I can think for myself and have a clear enough understanding of right and wrong to know to live my life the right way, the first time around, as to eliminate the need for any need for forgiveness from some imaginary deity.

    Second, what I think of Michael Vick has nothing to do with whether he went to jail or not, or whether he served a day or two years or a life sentence. I judge the “man” by his actions, and his actions are representative of a soulless, sociopathic monster with no respect or value for life. Someone who is so deeply entrenched in a life of gratuitous sadism and torture and who knowingly gives people herpes, is a confirmed convicted liar and who drowns, hangs and electrocutes dogs is a lost cause. You do not magically grow a conscience in your late 20’s.

    Lastly, I take great offense to being called a racist for merely pointing out the aforementioned atrocities commited by this convicted felon. When you say someone is a racist for merely pointing out vile, subhuman behavior such as Vick’s, you trivialize the real racism that has existed in this country- slavery, lynchings, Jim Crow, discrimination, etc..

    Frankly, you, your opinions and your attitudes disgust me. By the way, as for your old man comment, I am the same age as M. Vick, have never drowned or electrocuted a dog, have never spent a day in jail in my life and have a clear conscience. Amazing right?

    What about the active NFL players that killed people? Oh wait they’re not divisive enough because they’re not that good.

  176. realitypolice says: Dec 29, 2010 4:31 PM

    @marcussallen:

    You don’t think we should wait a few years until Vick is off probation and not angling for a multi-million dollar contract before we decide whether or not he is a changed man?

    Really, 18 months, not 18 years, 18 months in prison has completely reformed a career criminal into a fine upstanding citizen who will never cause trouble again.

    Sure, happens all the time. That’s why the recidivism rate in the US is 0%.

  180. marcussallen says: Dec 29, 2010 4:57 PM

    So an self-confessed atheist wades into a thicket about religion and redemption, well I’ll bite . . . first off you waded in saying you had no problem agreeing with an idiotic Christian demagogue’s un-Christian like behavior. I’m glad you “think” you can sum up a man by saying you “think” he’s conned the public. Since you don’t read mind, that comes off as racist, and not about you talking about his atrocities, so please be clear on that – this is not about lynching, slavery or Jim Crow and you can be racist without owning a slave or lynching anyone, because your behavior demonstrates that if you were in a hiring position, no felon would ever get a chance to work and have a family since you can look into every person’s heart and tell if they are sincere or not. No one here or anywhere is excusing Vick’s killing and maiming of dogs, just that our society says that once there is punishment for the crime, creeps like you shouldn’t still treat him like a criminal. The message Obama gave to Lurie was similar “creeps like you shouldn’t treat an ex-convict like a convict.” A lot of inmates find religion and lead better lives once they have to spend so much time alone with themselves, and I would suggest that you do, but you claim to be so pure, that if you believed in God, he would come and spirit you away on a chariot like Elijah, but since you claim to not need any forgiveness from an imaginary deity, why wade into a thicket about said imaginary deity? You call anyone that buys a redemption story a dope and a fool, but clearly he’s not the only guy to get a second chance, but he’s one of the most high profile ones of this year. But I do believe you to be that fool you think we all are, since as I said, you can’t read minds, and base your hate on your imaginary power of mind reading. You want to equate a man killing an animal with a man molesting a human child, why is that? Does that analogy make it easier for you to hate second chances? You claim the masses have empty, shallow and meaningless lives simply because we don’t agree with you (or believe you’ve never done anything that you need redemption for). If he didn’t play football, his second chance would happen without the lights and headlines. And we are the hypocrites? Execute a man for killing an animal, what an wonderful analogy. He is unredeemable only because you say so and your beliefs should trump all others, because??? If you don’t care what the good book says about forgiveness, again, why wade into this argument, butfor your desire to spew your racist hatred at a man for getting a second chance. I’m glad my opinion disgusts you, and you have no clue about my attitude, but okay. I’ve never drowned or electrocuted a dog and never spent a day in jail either, but I can forgive, you sir . . . wow is all I can say about your capacity for compassion, and hope you never need it, cuz there will be some idiot just like you saying, no second chances for idiots like gia. . .

    Executed? Wow Tucker that is a bold statement to say so nonchalantly on national television. Vick killed dogs, not people Tuck. Maybe someone should execute you for wearing those bogus bow ties. On another note…Vick recently made a statement saying that it would help his rehabilitation to have a dog and also to allow his children the chance to experience having a dog. Vick should never own a dog again and that is something he should have thought of when he was drowning and torturing these creatures. His children are the victims of his crimes and they will have to live with their father’s mistakes. When they move out then they can own a dog.

First, Fox News is not biased, or it isn’t anymore biased than any of the other networks. Like someone mentioned above, NPR had a moron say they wished someone got AIDS. Got one chirp from the media or any of the people above I am sure.

    Second.. screw it. It is obvious that people like “granadafan” above me is lead by Keith Olbermann or Jon Stewart and believe anything they are told about Fox and the Tea Party. I wonder if he is aware that the Weather Underground was a left wing looney group that bombed the Pentagon among other places, and its leader, William Ayers is a great personal friend of his Messiah, Barack Obama. People like “granadafan” are what’s wrong with this country. They are too damn lazy to get news from a variety of sources and then make a logical decision as to what is or isn’t true.

    oh look, dallassux is mad, lol.

    is it because your team got destroyed by a team missing some starters and that had only 5 wins? or is it because said team just showed all the other playoff teams how to beat the eagles?

    yeah it’s probably one of those two. or both. and you can probably sense the impending choke job that the eagles will inevitably put on display. can’t blame ya for being mad…it’s okay to be emotional.

    fear not, coming from a fan of another team that is also legendary for choking, it’ll be okay.

    buncha pansies in philly shutting down for a minor snowstorm, trying to help your qb out of playing in bad weather and they still couldn’t beat a mediocre vikings team.

    Finally, something intelligent is stated on FOX News. President Obama (aka George W. Bush II) should be ashamed of himself for sticking up for a degenerate POS like Vick. The thing I am most curious about is whether Bush II would be applauding the Eagles so much if Vick was white. Somehow, I seriously doubt it.

    Who is this Jesus fellow you guys keep talking about?

    I think anyone who has ever electrocuted or hung a person should be electrocuted or hung. Don’t see why lawmen should be excluded from this. If it is a reprehensible act then it is just that. Damn you for killing that person, now we’re going to kill you. Can’t really have it both ways.

    I wonder if he is aware that the Weather Underground was a left wing looney group that bombed the Pentagon among other places, and its leader, William Ayers is a great personal friend of his Messiah, Barack Obama.———————————————–

    The Ayers bs was totally debunked. They were never friends, but they were in the same room.
    Totally debunked, except in right wing media world where you reside, and where facts are relative things.
    So sad. You are the lemming, totally unaware of your confirmational bias, and how it has been cultured and developed through years of propaganda of the plutocracy. It is amazing to me how 15% of the population can live in a reality that ignores, you know, reality.
    It does explain Justin Bieber, however.

    Grade A on your post. Finally someone who understands this is a plutocracy. Hopefully you understand Obama is a part of it as well. Look up his contributers. No one has received more money from these corporations than Obama.

    @ bluestree

    Who exactly debunked it? Keith Olbermann? Rachel Maddow? So basically what you are saying is that I am living in a right wing media world yet you are clearly living in a looney left wing media world further proving my point. He was indeed his friend and neighbor. He literally launched his political career in the guys living room. Keep marching on sheep.

    What a nice sidetrack for what was a telling game on Michael Vick. He lost the game with his three turnovers and we barely hear a peep from his adoring media. Instead we get this response to some bow-tie wearing dufus.
    Why?
    Because they can still say something positive about him despite his horrific performance Tuesday night.
    Hell, this site did it.

  206. shotcalla14374 says: Dec 30, 2010 11:57 PM

    Carlson’s comment came about 3 years late when Vick was sentenced to jail time. This was a poor attempt by an ignorant, narcissist to attract attention.

    I agree execution is the wrong thing to say about what should happen to Mr. Vick. Prison would be fine with me, and I am sure once he is out of bankrupcy and he gets his new contract from Mr. Lurie..he will be back home. How many chances did Marcus get? He is getting ready to go back to jail, and is on chance 10. But he wasn’t nearly as good a QB as Mike. Recidivsm for violent offenders (would you guys consider what Ron Mexico did as violent?)..is 68%. But I am sure with the new money, and temptations Mike will make the president proud. Maybe he has gone to the Ray Lewis school of redemption (like at the club this summer)..let someone else pull the triggger.

    You got me on the grammar; you see like my fellow “ghetto-dweller” Mike Vick, I make mistakes in life but expect a second chance fromn reasonable people, which does not include Tucker and all the dog-loving idiots. My definition of “dog-loving idiots” is people who think that animals kept in your house as a pet are somehow more important than the animals that most people – including me – eat as food and wear.

    Next time, if you want to use the N word, be man enough to say it rather than trying to slick with your code word of “ghetto-dweller”.

    What Vick did to the non-vicious dogs under his control is unconscionable and he should still be in prison for those acts.

  219. jewyjewstein says: Jan 1, 2011 11:47 PM

    He did the f’n prison time. He lost a ton of money. He didn’t even get his job back right away. He was a 3rd stringer and stuck with it.

    He got his chance to shine. Has made Philly a serious contender. (regardless of the Vikings game)

    WTF more is this man supposed to do??

    No one takes Tucker Carlson seriously, nor should they. He is a typical racist, hatemonger that FOX loves to put on the air. The scary part is how many Amerikkkans probably agree with the d-bag.

    Let’s work on killing the child molesters, kidnappers and Tucker Carlson fans. We can get to dog fighters after we killed the first million we NEED to kill.

  220. philtration says: Jan 2, 2011 12:58 AM

    Vick is a jag off no doubt but executed?

    Tucker Carlson does love George W. Bush though.
    Bush lied about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction, invaded a country that had nothing to do with 9/11 resulting in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people and cost the U.S. billions of dollars yet that turd is laughing it up on a book tour.
    Dick Cheney and his pals at Haliburton walked away with tons of money while U.S. soldiers get to learn to walk with prostheses.

    Typical Fox News nonsense.

  221. theoriginalcaptainmarvel says: Jan 2, 2011 8:10 PM

    Liberals love to whine and rip Bush; ok, fine. But I hate it when they act like they care about the troops more than Republicans do. If liberals love the troops so much, why is it that the active military votes Republican by a 4-1 margin?

    Oh, and by the way, Vick is a scumbag. But he did his well-deserved time, lost a lot of money…so he deserves this chance.

    If you live in Saudi Arabia, than you are surrounded by people (or at least a government) that treats people the way Vick treats dogs. I would hardly expect you to show any compassion for any living thing.

    That being said, I hate it when people use terms like “ghetto-dweller” or cite grammar as an excuse to devalue an argument. Clearly who ever said Ghetto Dweller is just racist enough to hate black people, but not racist enough to dilute himself to the point that it is ok to use a real racial slur.

  224. cowboyerik says: Jan 3, 2011 2:37 PM

    Its amazing how much more people care about crualty to animals than to humans; how man HUMAN BEINGS died of starvation, disease or LACK of AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE in the time span Vick tortured, mutilated or electricuted dogs? But TEABAGGERS and conservative extremists are against helping people, curing people within the United States let alone abroad in the world. But they are not “Americans” right? so who cares. Or, they are 3rd world, and are somehow lower forms of Humans I guess; and or it’s out Christian destiny to RULE the world using the worlds LARGEST MILITARY(LARGER than the next 14 combined) and in a country(The United States of America) that when founded had NOTHING TO DO WITH RELIGIONS! But I bet its the same NRA card carrying /anti-abortion sign-waivers/pro-CAPITAL punishment by electricution / anti-healthcare for all and pro-Christian IDIOTS that hate Vick; I don’t like Vick, but we have major problems in the world and right here at home, and people are concerned with the City of BROTHERLY HATES Quarterback and his history? Geez, you all live in a dream world or in the Matrixx!

  225. tecmobowl34 says: Jan 3, 2011 3:02 PM

    I always liked Tucker Carlson. I think he’s usually pretty fair and even-handed. Thought-provoking.

    I think this is a fair assessment of Mike Vick that came from a rational, compassionate, Christian newsman who has a good reputation. Made me really honestly think about if we should have executed Mike Vick when we had the chance.

  226. discosucs2005 says: Jan 3, 2011 3:08 PM

    @cowboyerik

    I hate Vick. This is a bipartisan issue. I’m not religious, against the death penalty, pro healthcare, pro choice, and pro gun control.

    “Its amazing how much more people care about crualty to animals than to humans”

    That is such a stupid thing to say. If we are discussing Vick and his dog fighting we aren’t talking about cruelty to humans. Vick isn’t responsible for the wide spread poverty, starvation and disease in the world. And it is a complete fallacy to say that those things are worse thus we should be mad at Vick. Anyone with any compassion would think, at the very least, Vick’s actions are disgusting. You can think he is a great football player. You can even think he is a changed man. But you have to concede that the way he’s treated living things in the past justifies the amount of hatred that surrounds him. And before we jump to the “2nd chance argument,” he got a second chance. People hating him, insulting him, and not wanting him on their team isn’t taking away the fact that he got his second chance.

  227. gamustangdude says: Jan 3, 2011 4:06 PM

    I’ve tried to be nice on similar topics before. But with this article, I’ve had enough.

    I hate dogs. I wish I could personally choke the life out of each and every dog. I would do it with a smile on my face. Matter of Fact I would do it with a smile on my face and listen to “The sound of Music Soundtrack” I wish I was right there, side by side Mick Vick when he tortured those dogs. Dogs are the lowest forms on earth. They smell, they eat their own bowls, and then have the audacity to lick you in the face?!? Dogs need to be extinct who gives a flying eff what Mike did. I’ll start a campaign for him to do it again. Now Cats I like, but Dogs? Line them up against the wall and make my shotgun happy please!!!!

    Now back to sports

  228. cowboyerik says: Jan 3, 2011 5:29 PM

    @discosucs2005,

    I was not attempting to connect Vick with the vast injustices to humans around the planet, or here at home in the United States, rather, I was trying to point out the hypocracy and contradition in all the VICK haters, which not include the powerful and elite in the United States; and that they would go on record, saying a guy should be killed for killing dogs, when we as a nation, consume a disproportionate about of the worlds resources, control it’s wealth, and monopolize and militarize the rest of the world, leaving countless millions suffering throughout the world, and that OK, and even “Christian” (but certainly not Christian right), but killing dogs, is so abhorant, please; its starts at the top, and we, the United States, has the largest killing machine on the planet. How many civillian deaths have we caused in our fruitless 10-year war in Iraq? More hairs than is on all the dogs Vick killed……. very Christian . . .

    I meant exactly what I said.

    A “ghetto dweller” is someone who lives in the ghetto. Period. Where I live, this strata is comprised of mostly white trash (not blacks as you would like to think). Such people are typically uneducated and often carry with them a twisted sense of justice, morals and ethics. Vick’s comments where he blamed his “culture” for his sociopathic behaviour is a perfect example of this – as is your ridiculous view that every white man is a closet KKK member. Understand?

    BTW: Your relentless use of the term “racist” to label anyone who disagrees with you does nothing but belittle the experience of everyone who has suffered real racism in society. It is little wonder why nobody of any importance takes you seriously anymore.

    HAHA YOU TELL EM!!!!! Too often do people go to the racist well when they don’t have a solid educated rebuttal. If anybody claims racism in this case its Vick… he’s the one who blamed his actions on his “surroundings” and “culture” so as “white” (very few people in america are truly white) people are we supposed to take Vicks word and believe that most black people torture domestic pets because thats how they are brought up? And if we do take Vick at his word and say “oh well hes black thats how these guys are raised; he doesnt know any better and you know what…. its the white mans fault for not telling him!” So by any answer to this argument the white man gives, the black man can turn it around as racism if he feels inclined to do so. Don’t complain about not being treated equally and then when we hold you to the same standards as we hold everyone else dont go crying racism when we call FOUL!!! Bottom line “YOU CANT KILL AND TORTURE PETS NO MATTER WHAT COLOR YOU ARE!!!”….. thats not very hard to understand is it?
