Tucker Carlson Celebrated Harvey Milk’s Murder in His College Yearbook
Trust find Nazi Tucker Carlson took a break from throwing conniptions over the Derek Chauvin verdict on his nightly Sixty Minutes of Hate cable news program Tuesday to foreshadow some manner of possible coming scandal involving his college yearbook. You can watch him preemptively play defense in the clip below, wherein Carlson complains that Washington Post owner “Jeff Bezos had one of his minions, a mentally unbalanced middle-aged man called Erik Wemple, pull out dusty college yearbook and call around and see if we’d done anything naughty at age 19.”

We may now know what this scandal is. An entry from Carlson’s 1991 Trinity College yearbook surfaced on social media today, wherein Carlson described himself as a member of the “Jesse Helms Foundation” and the “Dan White Society.”
Perhaps this is the story that @TuckerCarlson was trying to get ahead of. In his college yearbook, he listed himself as a member of the "Dan White Society."

Dan White is the man who shot and killed Harvey Milk in 1978, an ex-cop who was elected to the Board of Supervisors on an anti-gay agenda. (He killed Mayor George Moscone on the same day). The murder of America’s first openly gay elected official made White a cause celebre among homphones nationwide. Jesse Helms was some massive racist asshole who served 30 years in the US Senate.
Tucker Carlson started out in Dan White Society and then just shed the Dan.

In all likelihood, the Dan White Society and Jesse Helms Foundation were not actual organizations. They’re just trolling mechanisms that prep school rich kids make up as yearbook entries to entertain themselves when they’re not playing lacrosse or slipping gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid into women’s cocktails. It’s not a real thing, it’s just a badge of honor for toxic male college sophomores.
But the most shocking thing we learned in researching this story is… Tucker Carslon was born in San Francisco?
