A few weeks ago FOX News correspondent Tucker Carlson had some harsh words related to Michael Vick’s recent “redemption story” in the media…and we love it!
Carlson said, “I’m a Christian, I’ve made mistakes myself, I believe fervently in second chances, 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? Kind of beyond the pale.”
While this blog is in no way affiliated with either political party, we are in 100% agreement that the Barack Obama should not be commenting on or supporting a disease spreading, animal killing scumbag like Michael Vick.
Watch the video of Tucker Carlson’s comments below.
On November 26, 2006 Michael Vick was the starting quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons. Just a few days after NFL analysis and father of the Atlanta Falcons coach, Jim Mora Sr., called Michael Vick a “coach killer”, Vick leads the Falcons to their 4th straight loss.
While walking off the field at the Georgia Dome Vick lifted the middle finger of his left hand, and then his right hand, to Atlanta fans who were booing the team’s performance.
This obscene gesture costs Vick $20,000, a $10,000 fine to the league and $10,000 donation to charity. Vick also apologized saying, “I would have never thought that six years into my career I would ever do something like that.”
Less than a year later he pled guilty to his involvement in an active dog fighting ring. Apparently six years into his career Vick didn’t see any problems with dog fighting.
Thank you Mark Buehrle. You don’t know it, but you are the inspiration behind this site. In February of 2011, after Michael Vick was reinstated into the NFL, had a terrific season and was named the NFL comeback player of the year, you said the following:
“Even if you are not a dog lover, how can you sit there and make two dogs fight and one is going to die? How could you do that if you are somewhat sane?”
“He had a great year and a great comeback, but there were times where we watched the game and I know it’s bad to say, but there were times where we hope he gets hurt. Everything you’ve done to these dogs, something bad needs to happen to these guys.”
Well Mark, you are not alone. There are A LOT of people who feel the exact same way that you do.
Michael Vick is still a scumbag. No matter how many touchdown pass he throws or how many tackles he breaks, he still killed defenseless animals “by hanging, drowning and/or slamming at least one dog’s body to the ground.”
As much as we were hoping he would just disappear after prison, he hasn’t. Now I guess the next best thing to hope for is a career ending injury to keep him out of the press, off the TV and finally out of our lives.
