Tucker Carlson refuses to apologize for old clips “we will never bow to the mob” Left goes nuts of course
Fox News host Tucker Carlson says “we will never bow to the mob: in response to criticism from 10-year-old media matters tape of him making crude remarks.
The remarks were made on a shock jock show and although they could be offensive to some and they are pretty stupid you don’t have to look back 10 years to find something stupid that Don Lemon or Rachel Maddow has said.
The “Bubba the Love Sponge Show” audio clips are from 2006 to 2011. Media Matters is circulating them now as part of a pressure campaign against Fox’s advertisers.
Without naming the anti-Fox group, Carlson said on Monday night that “they’ve been working hard to kill this show” ever since it premiered in 2016.
When Carlson handed off to Sean Hannity, the two men complained about the scrutiny.
“There is a mob that wants to destroy only Fox,” Hannity said.
“We’re going to fight it,” Carlson said.
Media Matters said, in effect, that the group is just highlighting the Fox hosts’ own words and letting others decide.
The first batch of “Bubba” show clips were released on Sunday evening. Carlson was heard making many misogynistic and crude comments. Before long a “fire Tucker” hashtag was trending on Twitter.
Not really much there to get offended by unless you love terrorist. But media matters is always out to get Fox and conservatives. The left is sure upset as evident on Twitter clips below.
I wondered if Tucker Carlson was merely acting when he would say racist, sexist & bigoted statements on his @FoxNews show because his views were so extreme. Looks like @TuckerCarlson actually believes the crazy stuff he says.

Tucker Carlson said "white men" deserve credit for "creating civilization"
He described Iraqis as "semiliterate primitive monkeys"
He said the Congressional Black Caucus "exists to blame the white man for everything"
It's all white nationalist rhetorichttps://t.co/ralRdRxYMI

I keep trying to think of a smart “take” about this Tucker Carlson stuff and I’m just at a loss.
He’s monstrous, what he said was monstrous, his defenders are monstrous, and Fox News doesn’t care because they have no ethical standards.
It’s monsters all the way down.

Carlson is right that we should never bow to the mob. Because the left does not have any problem with filthy language or smut as a whole. They are the party that champions homosexuality and transgender as well as the infanticide of babies. But let a conservative speak out and watch out the thought police will be on the scene and Carlson said as much Monday.
