Reader's View: Putin fan Tucker Carlson should be exiled

He spreads Putin's lies.

Reader's View.jpg

Fox News political talk-show host Tucker Carlson has expressed support for Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose apparent quest is to ethnically cleanse all the people of Ukraine. Therefore, it can be argued that Tucker Carlson is a Communist.

Russian leader Joseph Stalin killed 50 million of his own people. He even killed his good friend Vladimir Lenin.

If Tucker Carlson is such a fan of Vladimir Putin, he should be exiled from our country and live in Moscow. His U.S. citizenship should be revoked. He seems to listen to Putin's propaganda. He spreads Putin's lies. He is a scourge to everything our country stands for, including the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the right to a fair trial before a jury of peers. Tucker Carlson is un-American.

I took an oath to protect the Constitution of the United States of America from all enemies, foreign or domestic. I took this oath on Sept 14, 1967, at 3:05 p.m. in Los Angeles.

I am not a Republican or a Democrat. I am an American.
