The people speak:
Liberals get their panties in a wad over the most ridiculous things. These are the same people who defend hard core pornography as “artistic expression.” But let conservative people act even slightly lusty and out pops the neo-Puritan.
This Slate article is totally worthless except as an example of leftist propaganda.
News broke Wednesday that Fox News will no longer air Bill O’Reilly’s show after reports that it had paid at least $13 million (!) to settle five workplace sexual-harassment suits (!!) against him triggered a deluge of advertiser cancellations. Fox, of course, terminated its relationship with founder Roger Ailes in 2016 for similar reasons. The network appears to have had a quite the endemic culture of sexual inappropriateness.
Who then, has it decided to replace O’Reilly with in the crucial 8 p.m. time slot? Why, Tucker Carlson—who, in 2015, responded to the revelation that a writer at his Daily Caller site had written him an email that speculated about whether a female professional contact had ever been ejaculated on by refusing to apologize and joking that the email had been meant “in the nicest way.” (Funny!)
The story of the email was broken by BuzzFeed’s Rosie Gray, and you can read it here; the gist is that the writer—who happened to be Tucker Carlson’s brother Buckley—accidentally copied New York mayoral spokeswoman Amy Spitalnick, with whom the Caller had been having a dispute, on an email to Tucker Carlson. The email included this passage:
Whiny little self-righteous bitch. “Appalling?” And with such an ironic name, too … Spitalnick? Ironic because you just know she has extreme dick-fright; no chance has this girl ever had a pearl necklace. Spoogeneck? I don’t think so. More like LabiaFace.
Before that email, Tucker Carlson himself had (purposely) told the spokeswoman that she’d been “whiny and annoying.” Asked by Gray about his brother’s comments, Carlson made the joke above. He apparently later went so far as to concede that the email was “nasty” in a New Yorker interview, but Spitalnick recently told Erik Wemple of the Washington Post that neither Carlson nor anyone else at the Daily Caller ever apologized to her.
Taking over the 9 p.m. slot previously occupied by Carlson is The Five. Here is something that just happened on that show today, Wednesday:
Yes, that is host Gutfeld speculating that Guilfoyle’s manner of dress was inspiring male viewers to achieve erections.
Times sure have changed over at old Fox News!
Several months ago, Media Matters noted that Tuck is a fav with Nazis, racists, and woman haters.
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.
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.”
Might as well say it again: You can’t cuck the Tuck.
