Does the press foolishly think that linking Tucker Carlson to “Nazis, so-called woman haters, and Jew-wise alt-right figures is going to cause normies to avoid watching his weeknight cable news program?
How foolish, if that’s what they think.
I remember the old CNN bow tie wearing Tucker. He was a faggot in those days. Now he’s a tiger. Never adopt a bow tie as your symbol. It looks weak.
Excerpt from Media Matters
Following the news that Megyn Kelly had left Fox News for NBC, a commenter at the pro-Donald Trump subreddit “r/The_Donald” — a key gathering place for the “alt-right” — posed a question: “WHO DO WE WANT IN HER PLACE?” The subreddit’s denizens quickly coalesced around a single option: Tucker Carlson.
“TUCKER FOR ANOTHER HOUR!” reads the thread’s top comment. “Then start spamming fox with emails and comments letting them know,” wrote one Redditor. “You can’t cuck the Tuck,” commented another.
Twenty-four hours later, the trolls seem to have gotten their way, with Fox News announcing that Carlson will take over Kelly’s 9 p.m. timeslot. Carlson — a preppy son of privilege who has incongruously become cable news’s most favored host among neo-Nazis and white nationalists — will now have a prime-time venue to continue giving Fox News a bigger foothold with the “alt-right” audience.
Carlson is a career member of the press who first wrote for establishment conservative and mainstream news outlets like The Weekly Standard, The New York Times Magazine, and New York magazine, and has spent nearly two decades as a host and commentator on PBS, CNN, MSNBC, and finally Fox News. While Carlson has regularly promoted a conservative brand of commentary laced with misogyny, misinformation, and factually inaccurate attacks, many on the left remember him as the bow tie-wearing Crossfire host who Jon Stewart pummeled in his searing 2004 demolition of the program.
But since landing his 7 p.m. Fox News program Tucker Carlson Tonight in November, Carlson has built a strong following among the worst racists, misogynists, and anti-Semites on the Internet.
Those deplorables love Carlson’s cutting interview style, which seeks not to extract information from guests but rather to embarrass them. Many of Carlson’s victims have included the young women, Jews, and “social justice warriors” who constitute the main perceived enemies of the “alt-right.” They believe that Carlson is helping to mainstream their racist, misogynist worldview.
You can’t embarrass people unless they’re fools or ignoramuses.
At “r/The_Donald,” Redditors regularly highlight instances in which Carlson “REKT,” “tore apart,” “grills,” or “DESTROYS” his interviewees. A separate subreddit was created in November with the mission statement: “Alpha Male Tucker Carlson routinely plows beta-male SJW snowflakes over on Fox News. This is where we compile his greatest hits.” The subreddit’s official Twitter account is @cantcuckthetuck, a mantra that Carlson’s “alt-right” supporters use to highlight his supposed unwillingness to be “cucked.”
The neo-Nazi website Daily Stormer regularly features videos of Carlson’s interviews under the headline “You Can’t Cuck The TUCK!” The site’s founder, Andrew Anglin, has called Carlson “our greatest ally” and a “machine of ultimate destruction” who “LAMPSHADE[S]” Jewish guests.
The former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke has praised Carlson for pushing back against “Jewish Supremacists” who “believe they are above the law.”
Mocking feminists makes you a sexist? Bwahahahahahaha.
I put this post together a few hours before publishing it. During that time, youtube already removed one of the videos I had embedded here and terminated the account of the publisher of the video.
Liberals really are upset by Tucker’s ability to dominate the conversation on cable news. They especially hate it when he destroys Jews and blacks, which I’ve posted about before.
