    GOP Civil War: Tucker Carlson Calls Conservative Nonprofits The Most “Useless Group Of People In The World”

    Fox News contributor and Daily Caller editor-in-chief Tucker Carlson added to the ongoing Republican civil war by calling conservative nonprofits “parasites” on conservatism who have consumed “literally billions of dollars” and “achieved virtually nothing in the last thirty years.” Carlson also remarked, “If there’s a more useless group of people in the world, I’m not aware of it.”

    Since Mitt Romney’s defeat last November, Republicans have been feuding among themselves over the future of the party and conservative ideals. The fight exploded when Karl Rove and his allies at American Crossroads announced plans to, in the words of The New York Times, “recruit seasoned candidates and protect Senate incumbents from challenges by far-right conservatives and Tea Party enthusiasts.” Conservative media figures conservative groups like FreedomWorks have hit Rove over the project. FreedomWorks raised nearly $41 million last year and has come under heavy scrutiny recently due to bizarre internal feuding and questions about its finances.

    Carlson made his remarks on the March 18 broadcast of WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall during a discussion about the Republican infighting. From the program:

    CARLSON: There are a ton of sleazy consultants out there. A lot of them are getting rich, I live near a lot of them, so I can vouch for their richness, for sure. The irony, though, is that these charges are being thrown by almost always people in the conservative nonprofit sector, and if there’s a more useless group of people in the world, I’m not aware of it. I mean, conservative nonprofits in Washington consume over time, over the last forty years, literally, literally billions of dollars. And the country has become much more liberal in every single way.

    So they have failed to do anything other than, you know, buy weekend houses and send their kids to college. I mean they’ve profited from it. But they haven’t won, you know, any important ideological victory in thirty years. So like, wait a second. They need to reexamine their own status. I mean, these are parasites too, as far as I’m concerned. They really are.

    LARRY O’CONNOR (CO-HOST): Just a quick follow up because you’re making it sound like this is really a battle over money. Are you saying those nonprofits are hammering consultants like Karl Rove because they don’t like all that money being donated to — to the consultants instead of going to the nonprofits?

    CARLSON: I’m saying they ought to take the plank out of their eye before they point out the speck in their neighbors, I guess is what I’m really saying. I mean, I think there are a lot of really sincere, decent conservatives working in nonprofits, I know them, of course. I don’t want to make a blanket indictment. However, they as a group have achieved virtually nothing in the last thirty years. I know, because I’ve lived here. And look at the results. Our taxes are higher, more people are pro-choice. I mean — you know, like all their stated goals have not been achieved. And they’ve consumed a huge amount of money doing it, so it’s time for some serious soul-searching. And for those people to get up and start screaming about how other people are wasting money and aren’t sincere and are cynical, I mean, it’s nauseating. To me, I’m not a consultant or an employee of a nonprofit so I think I can see it with some clarity, there are a lot of parasites on the, you know, on conservatism.

    Carlson’s remarks were highlighted on the video website of the conservative nonprofit Media Research Center. The MRC is headed by conservative activist Brent Bozell, who has harshly criticized Rove and discouraged donors from giving money to his group. In addition to heading the MRC, Bozell is also the chairman of ForAmerica, a conservative nonprofit.

    Salon’s Joan Walsh: Rush Limbaugh Helped The GOP Lose The Election
    “He Turned Off Women, He Was Despicable In What He Said About Sandra Fluke”

  • Doug Z

    We all knew this and why. They are liberal and the media of Democrats and Obama

    You gotta hand it to Jay Leno; the dude’s got guts. On Tuesday’s installment of The Tonight Show, the late-night host took another swipe at NBC’s poor ratings — a day after he referred to the top execs as “snakes.”

    Jay Leno

    Did you hear about this? A 28-year-old woman from Serbia has a rare brain condition where she sees everything upside down,” Leno said in Tuesday’s monologue. “The good news? She’s now been given a job at the White House as President Obama’s economic adviser. Isn’t that crazy? It’s unbelievable. She sees everything upside down. In fact, she thinks NBC is at the top of the ratings.”

    Jay Leno

    On Monday, Leno made this joke at the expense of his employer: “You know the whole legend of St. Patrick, right? St. Patrick drove all the snakes out of Ireland — and then they came to the United States and became NBC executives.”

    MSNBC loons and fools CRUSHED.Embarrassing.

  • moncon

    I think differing views within a party is OK. It shows they are not blindly pledging their allegiance just because they have an R after their name. Differing views is what this country is about, isn’t it? And if Democrats think they are immune to in-fighting they are lying to you. Just look at the gun legislation. Harry Reid could not get all of the Democratic votes for the full bill. Mark Begich (D) has been airing commercials stating he is AGAINST any gun restriction laws. But they blame NRA and GOP so that they look unified.

    She is someone only a mother ooooor Chris Matthews could love! :shock: :lol:

    The DHS has purchased over 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition over the past year – enough to wage a 20 year plus war. Earlier this month, Forbes Magazine called for a “national conversation” on the matter.

    They didn’t buy all that ammo and those armored vehicles so they could bake cookies for everyone. The answer should be obvious. If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, and prepares for domestic war like a duck,…

  • Moncon

    Just heard our Democratic Senator’s commercial on the radio again. States the sequester was the shot in the arm the government needed. He must be listening to his constituents and going against the party line

  • Cathy

    Someone needs to explain to me how all the polling information is showing that the majority are against Obama’s latest actions but his job approval is still 49% to 51% depending on the polling company.

    Do people not know what Obama’s policies are?

    On the Detroit news they talked to 15 different people on the street. All of them said they believe there is more than 15% wasteful spending in the government. They believe we need to balance the budget. They believe that closing the white house to tours is a political move and disagree with it. They believe releasing illegal aliens that have committed crimes is a political move and disagree with it. The believe the White House is paying women less money. They believe Obama needs more black working for him.

    Yet they all said Obama is doing a outstanding job.

  • Ratboy

    For MSNBC to continue to allow this race baiting a$$&^% on the air they should have the plug pulled on their power source!! Anyone that defends this on this site……..we know what you are!

    Chris Matthews Asks If Tea Party Wants An America Where ‘There Are No Gays, Blacks Were Slaves, Mexicans Were in Mexico’

    Two days after Chris Matthews and fellow MSNBCer Joy-Ann Reid suggested that participants at the annual CPAC supported segregation, the liberal host was back at it on March 20. Matthews brought on two liberal guests to slam the Tea Party for its “racist” and “xenophobic” mentality.

    Speaking with his guests on Wednesday’s Hardball, Matthews asked:

    Is it sort of a resumption of the Old South, of the way things were before the Civil War for example? Is it like that old dreamy nostalgia you get in the old movies “Gone With The Wind”? Is it that kind of America they want to bring back or what? When there were no gays, where blacks were slaves, Mexicans were in Mexico. I mean, is this what they want?

  • Mikey O

    @Doug Z Did you forget what Obama say in 2008 before we got elected .
    On July 2, 2008, Barack Obama announced: “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

    Starting to build it now.

    This just in: Lian Ryan’s bogus budget BARELY passed in the right wing House indicating the Party is in complete conflict. His budget calls for huge tax cuts on millionaires like himself, taxes increases on the middle class, and elimination of Medicare and Social Security. This guy is a joke and now the moderate GOP is saying so, too…..

  • usa8888

    Rat–we are still waiting…

  • usa8888

    We are watching the GOP begin to disintegrate…….the infighting has begun…

  • Mikey O

    @Cathy Obama is a good talker has that silver tongue, he a cool dude to younger folks, plays basket ball, golf, fills out NCAA brackets, throws cool parties, and the media treats him like a rock star. So the people fall for the hype and one something goes wrong it some elses fault not his.
