Fox News host Tucker Carlson calls Commanders HC Ron Rivera 'fascist moron'

Political journalist Tucker Carlson unloaded on Washington Commanders coach Ron Rivera, calling him a "fascist moron." Earlier this week, Commanders defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio reffered to the January 6 Capitol insurrection as a dust up.

The Commanders weren't happy with the comments Del Rio made and fined him $100,000. When Commanders coach Rivera was asked about Del Rio, he said he was disappointed with his comments. “Jack Del Rio is a football coach, he’s defensive coordinator for the Washington Commanders, formerly known as the Redskins ’til for some reason that was unacceptable,” Carlson said on Fox News.

“So a few days ago Del Rio pointed out that nobody seems to talk about the BLM riots anymore. Instead they’re pretending to care about January 6. Well, he was attacked for this, ’cause you’re not allowed to like tell the truth on any level whatsoever.

So he came back and said he stands by his comments. Here’s what he said”.

Carlson: Rivera is a fascist moron

“Oh, he thought he had a right to respectfully express himself in the land of the free,” Carlson continued.

“But it turns out, no. Just hours ago, the coach of the Washington Commanders, a fascist moron called Ron Rivera, announced that Jack Del Rio has no right to talk, and he’s being fined $100,000 for doing it. Rivera began by claiming that, quote, ‘Lives were lost on January 6,’ which is a lie.

Then he continued this way, quote, ‘Our organization will not tolerate any equivalency between those who demanded justice in the wake of George Floyd’s murder and the actions of those on January 6 who sought to topple our government.’ If you can think of a line more filled with cant dishonesty and propaganda than that, send us a text and tell us what it is, ’cause we can’t.

I mean, that’s just flat-out Maoist. Basically what he’s saying is, ‘Shut up. You’re no longer allowed to talk. If you disagree with the orthodoxy, you will be punished.’ This is an NFL team. And it’s happening everywhere”.
