WATCH: Senator Dick Durbin Destroys Fox News and “Anti-Vaxx Quacks” Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham
Democratic leaders in every state are focused on getting as many people vaccinated as possible. Unfortunately for them, the issue has been deeply politicized.
Viewers of the Fox News network hear conflicting messages about the COVID vaccine on a nightly basis. Of course, they tell you that only Donald Trump should be given credit for the rapid development of the inoculation. At the same time, though, people should be cautious about getting their shot.
The two biggest anti-Vaxx personalities on Fox News are Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham. Illinois senator Dick Durbin called both lawmakers out by name during a Monday floor speech.
“There are two hosts of programs on Fox primetime that can only be characterized as anti-vaxx quacks,” Durbin began. “I’m referring of course to Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham. They have been spreading what I consider to be irresponsible information about vaccines across America, and about the effort of this nation to deal with them. Here’s the reality. We have millions who’ve died across the world by this vaccine [sic]. We may never have an accurate count. We have hundreds of thousands who have died in the United States, and now it is said repeatedly that those who are headed to the hospital with the most serious strains of Covid-19, 99.5% of them were not vaccinated. So the facts are obvious here.”
Frank Figliuzzi: I Don’t Think Tucker Carlson’s Whistleblower Exists, But if They Do, They’re Getting Arrested [Video]
Tucker Carlson has always been one of the more extreme anchors on Fox News. But since Donald Trump lost the election, he’s gone even further off the deep end. Whether is has to deal with white supremacy or COVID-19, no conspiracy theory has been out of bounds for the personality.
In the last few weeks, Carlson has been claiming that he is being spied on by the NSA. And in a recent segment, he claimed that it has something to do with his attempts to interview Vladimir Putin.
During a recent appearance on MSNBC, Frank Figliuzzi said that the Fox host is playing a dangerous game. And the former FBI agent said that Carlson may even get his whistleblower arrested.
First, Figliuzzi said that he’s not sure the whistleblower is even real. He then continued, “There’s something much larger going on here. Another page in the playbook of folks like Tucker Carlson and the GOP who want to continue to erode the public’s trust in their institutions. If you keep doing that enough the objective is you can’t trust your institutions and the career professionals and then the only people you can trust are us. And you get to reshape the truth into your own version of reality. That’s what’s going on here.”

Joe Rogan Defends Tucker Carlson and Alex Jones,”None of What They Say is Outrageous.”
Joe Rogan happily tells his viewers that he is not a Republican or a Democrat. His favored candidate during the run-up to the 2020 election was Bernie Sanders.
At the same time, the popular host has platformed many alt-right figures. This includes multiple appearances from Alex Jones. And this week, Rogan defended both Jones and Tucker Carlson.
Rogan was critiquing Brian Stelter’s recent comments on the two men. The host began, “Both men were saying things that are logical. They’re both saying … there was most likely agent provocateurs that at least had some part in that January 6th invasion of Capitol Hill. Like, that’s not an outrageous thing to say. Just by connecting him to Alex Jones, he’s trying to dismiss Tucker Carlson.”
The podcaster continued by discussing Carlson’s spying claims. “None of that is outrageous,” he said. “We know from Edward Snowden the NSA has been monitoring emails and everything. So that’s fact. … The idea that they’re not monitoring Alex Jones is insane. Whether or not they’re monitoring Tucker Carlson, I don’t know. But we know they have the ability to do so.”
As Jen Psaki recently explained, the NSA investigates people they worry are collaborating with foreign powers. Snowden had interactions with both Hong Kong and Russia.
Rogan has a legion of followers and it will matter to them that he is supporting Carlson and Jones.
Tucker Carlson to Friends: I Didn’t Vote for Trump in 2020, I Voted for Kanye West
Donald Trump‘s rise to power couldn’t have happened without Fox News. Host like Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and the hosts of Fox and Friends helped legitimize the businessman as a candidate. And Tucker Carlson certainly played a sizeable role as well.
But a new story shows that, at least among friends, Carlson is trying to somewhat distance himself from the former president. Politco reports that the Fox personality has been saying that he voted for Kanye West rather than Trump in 2020.
Daniel Lippman writes:
“Shortly after the presidential election, the Fox News host started telling some program guests that he had cast his ballot for West, according to two people familiar with those conversations. Given Carlson’s fierce on-air commentary in favor of Trump, the guests were left wondering if Carlson was serious or merely joking.”
Alex Jones Claims That the Government is Monitoring His Text Exchanges With Tucker Carlson
Alex Jones may have been largely deplatformed at this point, but that hasn’t stopped him from continuing to make wild claims. He recently told listeners that he was in regular contract with the White House in the run-up to the 1/6 insurrection.
This week Tucker Carlson said that he was being spied on by the NSA. While Jen Psaki explained why the Fox host’s claims were dubious, Jones believes them completely. In fact, the InfoWars host alleged that the government monitors his text exchanges with Carlson.
Jones began the segment, “Tucker Carlson has basically the highest ethics I’ve seen in journalism. He’s incredibly smart, he’s grown up, he’s woken up to things being very sinister and he’s come a long way, and he’s surpassed really the work I’ve done.”
The conspiracy theorist continued:
“We know that they spy on my text messages, my email, everything, and it’s all given to Democrats, law firms, universities, think tanks. I mean, this is a major criminal operation, and that’s exactly what Carlson talked about. That’s exactly what Carlson talked about is how they are passing his information around, trying to find something he said unethical or racist, and of course, they can’t. And that means they’re reading my text messages to Tucker Carlson and our conversations and they’re listening to conversations. And I’m gonna stop right there. We already know that.”
LISTEN: Jen Psaki Responds to Tucker Carlson’s Wild Claims That the NSA is Spying on Him
Last week, General Mark Milley infuriated Conservatives by talking about white rage. And no one personifies the idea of white rage better than Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
Carlson often talks about the persecution of white Americans during his show. On on Monday night, he said that he himself is a target of the government.
The Fox host told his audience, “[a whistleblower told us the NSA is] monitoring our electronic communications and is planning to leak them in an attempt to take this show off the air.”
Carlson, as he usually does, gave no proof or evidence to support his accusations
This morning Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked, “Tucker Carlson said that the NSA is spying on him. Is the administration aware of any espionage or listening efforts on US citizens by the NSA, and is Tucker Carlson one of them?”
She responded, “Well, the NSA has, I think you are well aware, everyone’s aware, everyone on this plane is aware, I should say, is an entity that focuses on foreign threats and individuals who are attempting to do us harm on foreign soil. So that is their purview, but beyond that I would point you to the intelligence community.”
Psaki’s answer made it pretty clear that Carlson’s conspiracy theory isn’t all that well thought out. Even if the government was looking into the Fox host, the NSA would not be the agency doing so.

“You Are White Rage” Watch as CNN’s Brianna Keilar Absolutely Destroys Tucker Carlson
On Thursday, embattled lawmaker Matt Gaetz attempted to incorporate Fox News into a congressional hearing. The Florida congressman asked General Mark Milley about Critical Race Theory as it relates to the United States military.
Milley went viral when he took the Fox talking points apart. This takedown enraged many at the Conservative network, especially Tucker Carlson who dedicated a segment to the General last night. CNN’s Brianna Keilar ripped into the Fox host calling him the personification of white rage.
Carlson said during his Thursday night show, Hard to believe that man wears a uniform. He’s that unimpressive.
An enraged Keilar began, “Unimpressive, he calls him. What does he mean? You know, setting aside any disagreements he has with Milley – Milley’s not immune from criticism – but look at the stripes on his sleeve. Ten of them, we counted.”
The CNN host continued, “Each one of those overseas service bars is six months deployed. That is five years. That is more time than Tucker Carlson spent at his probably third-choice boarding school.”

WATCH: CNN’s Erin Burnett Rips Republicans Who Think 1/6 Was a False Flag
The presidency of Donald Trump featured a number of truly awful moments. But the worst or the worst was the January 6th insurrection inspired by Trump’s false election claims.
Rather than taking responsibility for what happened on that day, the anchors of Fox News are looking to blame anyone but Trump. Last night, Tucker Carlson claimed the insurrection was an FBI inspired false flag operation.
During her Thursday night show, Erin Burnett slammed Carlson and all the GOP lawmakers going along with that line of reasoning. She told her audience:
“Tucker Carlson is now saying the FBI was part of the riot guilty of assaulting America’s Capitol? This is an incredible thing to say. It is incredibly irresponsible. Of course, members of Congress who refuse to admit their actions and Trump actions leading up to January 6th, were the real cause of the insurrection that day, and they have picked up on this new, baseless theory, rushing to it.”
Newsmax Host Eric Salcedo Predicts States Will Soon Rebel Against Joe Biden
Fox News has always been far right. But the network has taken an even more dramatic turn since the election of Joe Biden. Leading this charge is Tucker Carlson who recently claimed that the Trump insurrection this January was actually a false flag operation conducted by the FBI.
Newsmax likes to present itself as an alternative to Fox. And in order to compete, the channel has to be even more extreme than it’s massive competitor.
Eric Salcedo tried to do just this on Thursday afternoon when he claimed that states will soon be ‘rebelling’ against Joe Biden. The Newsmax host began:
“As socialist Democrats show their hatred for our Constitution, the rule of law, and our country, as they show their hatred for our people, an awakening is occurring. It’s an awakening that the Biden Press can’t hide. Despite the left-wing media’s best efforts, the American people — Blacks, Latinos, Whites, and Asians — they’re starting to connect their misery to the socialist Democrat policies that are causing that misery.”
WATCH: Tucker Carlson is Furious That GOP Lawmakers Supported Making Juneteenth a National Holiday
In June of 1865, slaves were emancipated from slavery in the state of Texas. The next year, African Americans began to celebrate the anniversary of this occasion by celebrating Juneteenth.
This week, American lawmakers voted on whether or not to make the day a national holiday. Many Republicans, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy were behind the measure. But Tucker Carlson wasn’t. The Fox News host blasted Republican leadership for supporting the bill.
Carlson took particular issue with Texas’ John Cornyn. On Tuesday, the senator tweeted, “Happy that my bill to recognize Juneteenth as a national holiday just passed the Senate. It has been a state holiday in Texas for more than 40 years. Now more than ever, we need to learn from our history and continue to form a more perfect union.”

CNN’s Jim Acosta Blasts Tucker Carlson as a “Race-Baiting Tyrant”
Soon after the 2020 election, Fox News seemed to be softening its edges. Facing competition from extremist competitors like Newsmax and OAN, the long-time Conservative network may have been looking to appeal to a more moderate base.
That all ended after the insurrection. Fox has gone all in on Trump and his lies. Jim Acosta, a frequent critic of Trump, has become a fierce critic of the competing network. During a recent podcast interview with Mediaite, Acosta blasted Fox and especially Tucker Carlson.
Acosta told Aidan McLaughlin, “
What they’ve decided to do since [the election] is double down on being what I call the bullshit factory. They churn out segments that gin up outrage that they know is going to piss off their viewers and so on — even if it’s cockamamy made up nonsense. And they do it for the simple reason of attracting viewers, and ginning up the ratings.”
The Husband From the Infamous St. Louis Gun Couple is Running for a United States Senate Seat
Last summer a group of Black Lives Matters protesters marched through a tony St. Louis neighborhood. The demonstrators were headed to the house of St. Louis Mayor Lydia Krewson who had recently doxxed citizens who were calling for police reform.
As they marched down the street, Mark and Patricia McCloskey went out in front of their house and waved guns at the protesters. Not surprisingly, the couple became infamous in liberal circles and heroes in conservative ones.
The McCloskey’s were indicted on charges of exhibiting weapons during a protest and tampering with a weapon. The Republican governor of the state, Mike Parson vowed to pardon the couple if they were to be convicted.
And now Mark McCloskey is attempting to turn his infamy into fame. According to sources, he will announce a run for the United States senate. He will be running for the Missouri seat that will be open upon the retirement of Republican Roy Blount.
The lawyer announced on his Twitter page, “I’m joining Tucker TONIGHT at 7pm CT/8pm ET to make a huge announcement. Tune in. This is one you won’t want to miss…”

Not many tractors driving through Forest Park.”

Fox Head Lachlan Murdoch Absurdly Says the Network’s Opinion Hosts are Center-Right
Fox News has long referred to itself as a “fair and balanced” network. The joke is that nothing can be further from the truth. Even the networks “straight news” anchors are extremely conservative.
The networks opinion anchors, however are extremely right-wing. Sean Hannity appeared on stage with Donald Trump at a rally. Laura Ingraham demonizes immigrants and people of color on a nightly basis. And Tucker Carlson has been pushing white supremacist tropes on his show for years.
Fox’s CEO, though, believes that the anchors views are in line with what’s happening in Middle America. Lachlan Murdoch recently claimed that his opinion hosts are “center-right.”
The executive made the comments during a recent communications summit after he was asked about OAN and Newsmax.
“We compete every day with CNN, MSNBC, other news sources, so having competitors to the right of us is natural,” he said. “Opinion on our channel is center-right. That’s the right place for us to be. That’s where we think our audience is, that’s where middle America is. We’re happy with that positioning.”
Murdoch continued, “
That means there’s space to our left and to our right for competitors to come in. We’re confident in our journalism, confident in our reporting. We’re very happy with our opinion hosts. You have to be willing to have competition, and we see that very clearly.”
Watch: Alex Jones Ramps up the Crazy, Calls for Fauci and Gates To Be Executed
The United States is finally starting to beat back the COVID-19 pandemic. Nearly 60% of Americans have received at least one vaccination shot and businesses across the country are starting to reopen.
In the way of that success is anti-vaxxers and the right-wing media members that urge them one. Tucker Carlson has certainly done his part to make his viewers falsely question the safety of vaccines.
Alex Jones, as he is wont to do, has taken it a step father. During a recent episode of InfoWars, he called for Dr. Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates to be executed.
The conspiracy theorist began, “I don’t like death, I don’t like killing people, I don’t like starting a fight with these murderers. But they started a fight with us. And I’m just telling you like I said in the first hour, that we don’t want any violence against Fauci or Bill Gates or the New World Order from vigilantes.”
“We want to take our governments and our countries back and we want to have them indicted with all the evidence, and we want to see them up on Nuremberg 2. And that’s what last weekend, I had — the weekend before last I had on Dr. Francis Boyle on, and he laid it all out as well, that the punishment for what they have done is death. And so I don’t say that to be dramatic. I don’t say that to stick my head in the mouth of a lion — these guys are hyenas, but still, they can bite. I do it because I will not be a coward.”
He Has To Let Viewers Know His Vaccination Status: Watch CNN Doctor Tear Into Tucker Carlson
After months of waiting the COVID-19 vaccine is readily available nearly everywhere in the United States. The White House has been pulling out all the stops to urge Americans to get inoculated.
But there are also voices telling people that they don’t need to get vaccinated. Joe Rogan was one of them. The most prominent one, though, is Fox News‘ Tucker Carlson.
During a Sunday spot on CNN, Dr. Jonathan Reiner tore into the Fox host and demanded that he let viewers know what his vaccination status is. Anchor Jim Acosta began, “Tucker Carlson received blowback and rightly so over this anti-vaccine rhetoric he’s been engaging in.”
Reiner answered, “Yeah, so I think he’s really a saboteur. That’s what I think of Tucker Carlson.” The Doctor continued:
“Every night he has a million questions about this vaccine. Somehow, magically, he has no one on his show that can answer these questions — I’mwilling to answer these questions. I have two questions for Tucker Carlson,” he concluded. “Number one, you have been vaccinated? Number two, why won’t you tell your audience whether you have been vaccinated? I am tired of his nonsense.”
Conspiracy Theorists Taylor Greene and Carlson Push Idea That Kevin McCarthy and Frank Luntz are Lovers
Tucker Carlson has gone completely off the rails over the last few months. The Fox host was always controversial, but he’s recently gone deeper into anti-mask hysteria and white supremacist theories.
So it was fitting that he spoke with Marjorie Taylor Greene on Wednesday. The QAnon congresswoman is, by far, the looniest member of the House of Representatives. And she’s more than willing to blast any of her colleagues whether they be Democrats or Republicans.
Tucker Carlson is currently angry at House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and GOP pollster Frank Luntz. The Fox host dedicated a segment of his program to a story about McCarthy once renting a room in Luntz’s house.
On Wednesday, Carlson and Greene posited that the arrangement meant the two men were lovers. On his streaming show, the host asked, “Were you shocked to learn they share a toothbrush or are roommates or whatever?”
Tucker: Were you shocked to learn they share a toothbrush or are roommates or whatever?
Greene: I was more curious, like, who gets the top bunk and who gets the bottom bunk.
Tucker: Do we have any clarity on that?
Greene: Somebody should find out, right?
Report: Fox Staffers Hate Tucker Carlson But They Say He’ll Never Be Fired
Tucker Carlson has always said controversial things on his popular Fox News show. Every few months it seems like he has a scandal that costs the network a number of sponsors.
But since Donald Trump‘s November defeat, Carlson has been going further and further off the deep end. He created outrage in April when he pushed the white supremacist Great Replacement Theory.
And the Fox host went off the rails again last week when he talked about the use of face masks to protect against COVID-19. Carlson urged his viewers to call Child Protective Services and parents who had their children wear masks.
Despite how radioactive he is, however, Fox staffers say that he will never be fired because his ratings are just too high.
The Daily Beast interviewed a number of Fox employees about Carlson. One staffer said, “
He’s a good example of how much you can get away with at Fox if your ratings are high. Aside from that, he just perpetuates the right’s catastrophe platform. They cannot win with their supposed limited government, fiscal conservatism, because not even they really believe in it. So all they do is fear monger.”
Chris Hayes: Is Tucker Carlson Evil or in the Midst of a Genuine Breakdown
Tucker Carlson has not had an easy time since Donald Trump has been out of office. And with OAN and Newsmax breathing down Fox’s neck, Carlson is willing to say anything for ratings.
But he went a step farther than usual during an anti-mask rant on Monday. The Fox host encouraged his viewers to harass people wearing masks outdoors. He even said that people should call Child Protective Services on parents who mask their children.
Chris Hayes lit into the competition on Tuesday and wondered if the Fox host is experiencing a “genuine breakdown.”
The MSNBC host began, “Masks got turned into this insane culture war cudgel. We saw anti-mask protests, people claiming masks were a sign of tyranny. And conspiracy theories went wild.”
“Last night the highest rated personality on Rupert Murdoch’s cable network told his viewers to call the police if they see a child in a mask outdoors. You know, it’s either trolling, or it’s someone in the midst of a genuine breakdown, or it’s evil. Or some combination of all three. We all recognize that’s psychotic, right? That’s how psychotic it’s gotten. We are the people who believe in liberty. You on the left believe in tyranny, but we’re gonna call cops if you put a mask on your kid and have them take away your kids. Cool.”
Tucker Carlson: If You See a Child in a Mask, Call Child Protective Services on the Parents
It seems like Donald Trump‘s loss in November has deeply affected Tucker Carlson. Each night, the Fox host delves deeper and deeper into conspiracy theories and paranoia.
During his Monday night broadcast, Carlson had a meltdown over mask wearing. He urged his viewers to harass people who wear masks outdoors. Even worse, he said that people should call child protective services on parents who had their children wear masks.
The Fox host began, “Masks have always been incompatible with a free society. Masks are for the guilty. They’re signifiers of shame and submission.”
Carlson continued, “Next time you see someone in a mask on the sidewalk or on the bike path, do not hesitate, ask politely but firmly, would you please take off your mask? Science shows there is no reason for you to be wearing it. Your mask is making me uncomfortable,” said Carlson. “We should do that, and we should keep doing it until wearing a mask outside is roughly as socially acceptable as lighting a Marlboro in an elevator. It’s repulsive.”

There is also a situation at the US/Mexico border where many are seeking asylum. While Conservative talking heads have claimed that this began with Biden, it had started under the Trump administration.
Trump flak Stephen Miller is desperate to detract from Biden’s successes. And on Thursday night, he announced that he and Texas AG Ken Paxton are suing Joe Biden.
Miller explained to Tucker Carlson, “I’m working with attorney general Ken Paxton who is a true patriot and we should all be grateful to him, to sue the Biden administration on behalf of the people of Texas for flooding their estate with untested, Covid infected illegal immigrants. The fundamental question here at the heart of this whole issue is whether American citizens are second-class citizens in their own country.”

The despised former Donald Trump aide continued:
“For months now, Americans have been forced to have their businesses closed and I lives disrupted and during shattered, all because we are told we can’t be close to each other, and one group of people, one group of a loan has been held up by the Biden administration is being subject to none of those rules. Yet these are the people who have no right to be here at all. The illegal immigrants coming in violation of law.”

A VA Police Officer Who Gave Money and Encouragement to Kyle Rittenhouse Has Been Fired
On Tuesday, George Floyd received justice as Derek Chauvin was found guilty of his murder. The next major trial this year will be that of Kyle Rittenhouse. The teenager traveled to Kenosha, Wisconsin armed with an AR-15 and shot 2 police brutality protesters.
Rittenhouse became a sort of celebrity in the right-wing media world. T-shirts were made and money was raised for his defense. Ann Coulter said that she would like to vote for him for President.
A recent hack into a Christian crowdfunding site revealed some of the people who had given money to Rittenhouse. Among them was Lt. William K. Kelly III. Kelly not only gave money, but also words of encouragement.
God bless,” wrote the executive officer in Norfolk police’s internal affairs unit. “
Dr. Fauci Slams Tucker Carlson’s Bogus Comment That Vaccines Don’t Work
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading expert on infectious diseases, criticized Fox News personality Tucker Carlson for remarks he made claiming that Covid-19 vaccines do not work amid concerns that Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine can cause blood clots in select cases.
“That’s just a typical crazy conspiracy theory. Why would we not tell people if [the vaccine] doesn’t work? Look at the data. The data are overwhelming,” Fauci said in an interview with CNN.
“In the three vaccines that have been approved for use in an emergency use authorization—the J&J, the Pfizer and the Moderna—you had 30,000 [Moderna], 44,000 [Pfizer] and 40,000 [J&J] people in the clinical trial with an overwhelming signal of efficacy,” he added. “So I don’t have any idea what he’s talking about … It’s certainly not helpful to the public health of this nation, or even globally.”

Tucker Carlson Slammed for Employing White Supremacist Conspiracy Theory in Latest Lie About Dems
Fox News personality Tucker Carlson is being criticized after he employed the white supremacist “great replacement theory” to assert that Democrats are intentionally replacing white people with immigrants and minorities to further their electoral goals. While demographic changes in the United States indicate that white people will become the minority by 2045, there is no evidence to support Carlson’s claim.
That didn’t stop him from saying it, however.
“It was true and therefore worth saying,” he said on his program. “America badly needs a national conversation about it.” “Demographic change is the key to the Democratic party’s political ambitions,” he continued, adding that “Democrats plan to change the population of the country” to win elections.
Carlson previously claimed that Democrats are “trying to replace the current electorate of voters” with “more obedient voters from the Third World.”

Tucker Carlson Began Tonight’s Show Defending Insurrectionist Who Ran Around the Capitol With Zip Ties
On January 6th of this year, a mob of Trump supporters attacked the United States Capitol. While some of the mob seemed harmless, many others did not. Barricades were knocked down, windows were smashed and officers were savagely attacked.
Not long after the events occurred, Fox News began gaslighting its viewers on just how serious the incident was. And Donald Trump was along for the ride too. These people weren’t dangerous, the 45th president said, they we’re actually hugging and kissing the police officers.
Tucker Carlson took it one step further on Tuesday night. The Fox host went out of his way to defend Eric Munchel. Munchel was photographed during the event dressed head to toe in tactical gear, wearing a taser and holding zip ties.
Carlson told his audience:
“Neither Lisa Eisenhardt nor her son, Eric Munchel, damaged either property at the capital or committed any violence. They just walked in to what we used to refer to as the people’s house. And yet somehow, Joe Biden‘s Department of Justice is convinced that she was a ‘Threat to our republic’ and that her son was a would-be murderer. These are people whose crime was trespassing in the capital. We are not endorsing that. It took a ruling from the D.C. Circuit court of appeals to bring that perspective. ‘Two individuals who did not engage in any violence and were not involved in planning or coordinating that activity seemingly would pose little threat. Yet, seemingly. But the judges still do not release Eric or his mother, Lisa Eisenhardt. That is how much power federal prosecutors have. They can keep you in prison even when a judge concludes there is no reason for you to be in prison.”
WATCH: Piers Morgan Whines on Fox News That People Believe Meghan Markle But Not Donald Trump
A few short weeks ago, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry gave an explosive interview to Oprah Winfrey. The former Duchess of Sussex made allegations of racism against some close to the Royal Family.
And the claims in the interview drove Piers Morgan insane. Thanks to his coverage of the event, Morgan was removed as the host of Good Morning Britain.
Morgan talked about the experience during a Monday interview with Tucker Carlson. He whined to the Fox host that Markle isn’t being held to the same standard as Donald Trump.
The British talk show host lamented, “I don’t believe Meghan Markle. I had to believe her. And if I didn’t, I was a callous racist and I should be condemned and ultimately, as it turned out later that day, lose my job. And I think that’s a pretty perilous slope.”
Morgan then invoked Trump, saying:
“It was Meghan’s way and Meghan’s narrative and Meghan’s truth. That phrase was actually used by Oprah Winfrey. This is your truth. What does that mean? When did we get to your truth? This have the kind of defense that — the kind of thing that we hear liberals attack Donald Trump for, for reinventing tracts. For creating his own truth. But when Meghan Markle does it, the same liberals that attack Donald Trump cheer and applaud and say this is her truth and it must be believed and if you don’t believe it you’re a racist. Well, I’m sorry, I’m not a racist. I just don’t believe her.”
Listen: Sean Hannity Says Anti-Asian Attacks Are Happening Because the Police Have Been Defunded
Over the last year, attacks on Asian people in the United States have spiked. It’s not difficult to trace back the source of these attacks. Donald Trump was desperate to cover up his consistent failure in combating the Conronavirus. He consistently referred to the illness as the China virus.
And people on the Fox News network were more than happy to push the former president’s propaganda. During a recent radio segment, Sean Hannity argued that attacks on Asians weren’t because of Trump. instead, the Fox host said, it’s because the police have been defunded.
Hannity began, “If you like the United Socialist Utopia of California and you like the United Socialist Utopia that is New York, well, that’s what Joe Biden wants for America. That’s what Kamala Harris wants. That’s what Nancy Pelosi wants, that’s what Schumer wants, that’s what every Democrat there wants. That’s what AOC wants. ”
The Fox host continued:
“You want to know what cutting — you want what defunding the police looks like? Look at New York. Look at what happened to this — what — 65 year old woman. I don’t even know how she managed to survive it — with the kicking in the head as she tried to make her way to church, I read. The guy beats up his mom– yeah, that guy — kills his mom — that’s the guy that beat that woman.”
WATCH: Tucker Carlson Bristles After Matt Gaetz Brings Up Sexual Assault Allegations Levied Against the Fox Host
When people are accused of a serious crime, lawyers typically encourage them to stay silent about the matter. On Tuesday night, it was revealed that Matt Gaetz is being investigated for serious sex trafficking charges.
Rather than staying silent about the matter, though, Gaetz came out swinging and making wild accusations. The Florida Rep. attempted to defend himself during an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s show. It might not have went the way he wanted it to go, though, with Carlson calling it the “weirdest interview I’ve ever conducted.”
The Florida Rep. claimed, “What is happening is extortion of me and my family regarding a former Department of Justice official.”
Gaetz also said, “I‘m not the only person on screen right now that has been falsely accused of a terrible sex act.” This was an odd statement from the Florida Rep. Last year, Carlson was named in a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against Fox News.
Carlson responded, “You just referred to a mentally ill viewer who accused me of a sex crime 20 years ago and, of course, it was not true. I never met the person. But I do agree with you that being accused falsely that being accused falsely is one of the worst things that can happen and you do see it a lot. Let’s go back to the investigation you say it was or is underway. There was an investigation. What is the basis of that investigation? What is the allegation that really not very clear from these news stories. “

WATCH: Tucker Carlson Hits A New Disgusting Low By Smearing George Floyd
On May 25th of 2020, George Floyd died of injuries he suffered during an arrest. And the arrest was caught on video. Officer Derek Chauvin became infamous as America saw video of him casually kneeling on Floyd’s neck with his hand in his pocket.
The killing led to mass protests around the country. And Americans have waited to see Chauvin face trial. Monday saw the start of that trial and coverage of it has dominated cable news.
Fox News‘ coverage of the event has largely focused on defending the officers and slamming Floyd. Tucker Carlson took it to an entirely new level on Monday night.

WATCH: Tucker Carlson Says “Racial Arsonist” Obama is Attempting to Divide America by Releasing Statement on Mass Shooting
Mass shootings have sadly become a part of everyday life. They certainly were when Barack Obama was in office. And since Obama has been out of office, shootings have continued at a rapid pace.
And with another shooting happening Monday, Obama felt the need to weigh in on the situation. And doing so, Tucker Carlson says, it an attempt by Obama to divide the country.
Obama’s statement read in part, “We should be able to live our lives without wondering if the next trip outside our home could be our last. We should. But in America, we can’t. It is long past time for those with the power to fight this epidemic of gun violence to do so.”
The irked Carlson to no end. The Fox host told his viewers:
“White supremacy, that’s the culprit, no matter what the color the criminal was. It doesn’t matter the criminal’s color because it’s systemic racism and like carbon monoxide, it’s an invisible poison. That is suddenly a very common view on the left. It’s certainly Barack Obama’s position. More than any other contemporary American leader, Barack Obama is a racial arsonist. He emerges at our most vulnerable moments to deepen the wounds that divide us. He sows hate. Why would Barack Obama do this?”

Fox News has long had an advertiser problem. Thanks to hosts like Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson and Jeanine Pirro, sponsors can at time leave the network in droves.
And for the last four or five years, there has always been one company that was willing to fill the gap. It seemed sometimes that My Pillow was responsible for half the ads on the network.
But that won’t be the case much longer according to CEO Mike Lindell. Furious by the networks refusal to let him on air to peddle his lies, Lindell recently ripped the network. And during an appearance on The Eric Metaxes Radio Show, the My Pillow guy wondered if Fox was “in on it.”
The host wound Lindell up by slamming Fox in his question to the pillow CEO. Metaxes asked, “Lawsuits can be used as a way to silence people. They can be legitimate. But they can also be used as a way to silence people. And I’ve noticed that Fox and other people, rather than face the thing, they just say, We’re not gonna talk about that, we don’t want to get sued. That’s what’s happening in America.”

People Are Mockingly Referring to Sidney Powell’s Dominion Strategy as “The Tucker Carlson Defense”
Following his November election loss, Donald Trump compiled his “elite strike force” of lawyers. The team featured noted kooks like Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis. But Sidney Powell certainly stood out as the zaniest of the group.
Powell made increasingly wild claims about the long-dead Hugo Chavez as being a part of the plot to hand the election to Joe Biden. And she made plenty of claims about Dominion voting machines.
In response, Dominion named the lawyer in a $1.3 billion lawsuit. Powell is defending herself by claiming that no one would take her claims seriously. And all over Twitter, users are referring to this as the Tucker Carlson Defense.
According to Buzzfeed‘s Zoe Tillman, “She (Powell) argues that when she accused Dominion of being part of an election-rigging scheme with ties to Venezuela, ‘no reasonable person would conclude’ those were truly statements of fact.”

Tucker Carlson: Immigrants Are Turning the US Into an Ugly, Unhappy Country
Things were not so good for Fox News close to the last election. After 20 years of ratings dominance, Fox began to fall behind MSNBC and CNN. Even worse, Conservative challengers like OAN and Newsmax were coming out of the woodwork.
In response, the network decided to double down on conspiracy theories and racism. No one has embodied that reaction more than prime-time host Tucker Carlson.
Carlson has spent the last two months either downplaying the effectiveness of COVID vaccines or spewing racist drivel. He was at his most bigoted on Wednesday night.
The host asked viewers, “Over the past 30 years, the population of the United States has exploded by nearly 100 million people, mostly due to immigration. Were you even aware that that happened?”
“You’re not supposed to say a word about it, as every year the United States gets steadily more jammed with people, and at the same time, more chaotic and less cohesive, as the open spaces shrink, as nature itself recedes in the face of yet another strip mall or apartment complex or fast food outlet to serve the new people. This is becoming a crowded country, and crowded countries are ugly, unhappy countries. Why are we letting that happen? Well, that’s a rhetorical question, of course. No one asked us what we wanted, they just did it.”
People Are Being Poisoned: Nicolle Wallace Rips Tucker Carlson For Spreading Misinformation About Vaccines
Fox News can’t seem to make up their minds about vaccines. The anchors on the channel certainly want Donald Trump to get out sized credit for his role in developing the vaccine. At the same time, they are not willing to tell their viewers they should get inoculated.
Leading the misinformation charge is Tucker Carlson. Each night, the host leads his millions of viewers to wonder whether vaccinations are safe or not. On Tuesday, Nicolle Wallace took Carlson to task.
The MSNBC host began, “
A lesson in leadership from Dr. Fauci this morning, emphasizing the need to tell the truth, even if it’s not what people want to hear. It’s a lesson seemingly lost on Fox News personality Tucker Carlson, who is peddling false anti-vaxxer talking points to an audience of millions at a time when polls suggest that nearly half of Trump’s supporters will not get the COVID vaccine.”

There was a reason why George Floyd’s death became a transformative moment in American history. The video of the killing left no ambiguity about how he died.
The trial of the police officers involved in the incident is looming. And now a light has again be shined on the incident. Not surprisingly, Fox News is attempting to smear Floyd and blame him for his death. Tucker Carlson took that tack on Wednesday night when he blamed the man for his own death.
The Fox host began, “According to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office, George Floyd wasn’t simply high, he had a lethal amount of fentanyl in his system. He also had methamphetamines.”
Carlson continued, “
Well, Mr. Floyd was having trouble breathing, of course, the most noted part of the tape. What explains that? Why was George Floyd telling officers, ‘I can’t breathe?'”

But Tucker Carlson has made a commitment to gaslighting his viewers, even if the evidence is right there in front of their faces. On Tuesday night, the Fox host said there is no evidence that QAnon even exists.
Carlson told his audience:
“So it’s worth finding out where the public is getting all this false information. This disinformation as we’ll call it. So we checked. We spent all day trying to locate the famous QAnon. Which in the end we learned is not even a website. If it’s out there, we couldn’t even find it. Then we checked Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Twitter ’cause we have heard she traffics in disinformation, CNN told us. But nothing there.”

WATCH: Tucker Carlson Says That Post-COVID, Bill Gates Controls What We Can Do With Our Bodies
When he was coming into office, Joe Biden said that his goal was for the US to average 1 million vaccines a day. A month into office, the country is shattering that goal and the average is up to 1.6 million shots a day.
The cases are also going down around the country. Data has shown a massive decline in cases.
But to the hosts of Fox News, many of the people responsible for the COVID fight are painted as villains rather than heroes. Dr. Anthony Fauci is questioned on a daily basis on the Conservative network.
And Bill Gates, who donated money to develop vaccines, is portrayed as some kind of boogeyman. Tucker Carlson referenced Gates during his Monday show.
The Fox host began, “
The ability to work was once considered a human right, one of the most basic human rights, but then a lot of things were once considered basic human rights. Remember my body my choice? You’ve heard people chant that for 50 years, as recently as 2019 Kamala Harris
WATCH: Tucker Carlson Says Democrats Should be Inclusive of White Supremacists and QAnon People
The nation is, at the moment, very polarized. The last two elections could have swung on just around 100,000 votes. So it behooves both the Democratic and Republicans parties to embrace all types of voters.
On Tuesday night, Tucker Carlson attacked Democrats for not being a more inclusive party. The Fox host thinks that Liberal’s should be more accepting of QAnon supporters and White Supremacists.
The Fox host was particularly angry at comments recently made by Don Lemon. The CNN host said:
“Everyone is welcome under this tent. We don’t care who you are. We don’t care if you voted for us or not. You’re all part of this American experiment. It was — I was so overwhelmed to hear that. I don’t care what people think, if they think I’m biased or not, if — I don’t care. And so, I’m very emotional. So, when you ask me how I’m feeling right now, I’m sorry, that’s all I can tell you. This is how I feel right now. I am so happy to have this platform to be able to do this. I may not have it after this, but I really don’t care. I am so happy.”
Relatives of Adam Kinzinger Told Him He’s Lost the Respect of Lou Dobbs, Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham
In mid-January, only 10 Republican congresspeople were willing to vote to impeach Donald Trump. All of them have taken heat from their parties. Many have been censured by their state GOP’s.
Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger not only voted to impeach Trump, he’s been a consistent critic of the former president since the November election. In addition to facing censure from the Illinois GOP, he’s also felt heat from his own family.
Kinzinger told the New York Times about a letter sent to him by some family members. “Oh my, what a disappointment you are to us and to God!… You have embarrassed the Kinzinger family name,” it read.
In action section, family members wrote, “You should be very proud that you have lost the respect of Lou Dobbs, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Greg Kelly, etc., and most importantly in our book, Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh and us!”
The GOP congressman doesn’t seem to be moved at all by the letter. He recently said of the response to his vote, “
I understand there is going to be backlash when you make a decision like that. I felt backlash from family. I felt backlash from friends. I felt backlash from constituents. If I would have voted against impeachment, I would have regretted it forever. … I’m at total peace. I have zero regrets whatsoever.”
Tucker Carlson Says Health Experts Are Lying About Effectiveness of the COVID Vaccine
Donald Trump’s leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic was an utter disaster. Pfizer and Moderna, though, were at the least, able to create vaccines that could help combat the virus.
And Trump certainly took credit for the vaccines on his way out of office. Pro-Trump Fox News, however, is now attacking the vaccine. On his Tuesday night show, Tucker Carlson claimed that health experts are lying about the treatment’s effectiveness.
The Fox host asked his audience, “When are we finally going to repeal Corona law, and what about this vaccine? Why are Americans being discouraged from asking simple, straightforward questions about it? Questions like how effective are these drugs? Are they safe? What’s the miscarriage risk for pregnant women, for example? Is there a study on that? May we see it? And, by the way, how much are the drug companies making off this stuff?”
“Most Americans already supported vaccines. They didn’t need to be browbeaten in order to be convinced. They were grateful their kids no longer get tetanus and polio and chicken pox. They weren’t anti-vaxxers. And yet, from the very first day, the way the authorities handled the COVID vaccine did not inspire confidence. If the vaccine was so great, why were all these people lying about it? Honest question. And they were lying, clearly they were lying. You know that for certain, because from the moment the COVID vaccine arrived, the most powerful people in America worked to make certain that no one could criticize it.”
Tucker Carlson: You Shouldn’t Fight Domestic Terrorism Because It Will Just Create More Domestic Terrorists
For years Tucker Carlson was telling his audience that white nationalism doesn’t exist. The Fox News host even continued to make this argument after his top writer, Blake Neff, resigned over racist and misogynistic remarks he had made.
The prime-time news personality has also done his best to play down the January 6th attack on the Capitol.
Carlson told his viewers in mid-January, “You know what that was, and you also know what it wasn’t. It was not an act of racism. It was not an insurrection. It wasn’t an armed invasion by a brigade of dangerous white supremacists. It wasn’t. Those are lies.”
The Fox host has also argued that domestic terrorism isn’t a real threat to the United States. He makes this pitch despite that fact that FBI Director Christopher Wray has told lawmakers:
“What I can tell you is that, within the domestic terrorism bucket category as a whole, racially-motivated violent extremism is, I think, the biggest bucket within that larger group, and within the racially-motivated violent extremists bucket, people subscribing to some kind of white supremacist-type ideology is certainly the biggest chunk of that.”
Tucker Carlson Doesn’t Think White Supremacists Should be Called Domestic Terrorists
Just a few weeks ago, a mob of Donald Trump supporters stormed the United States Capitol. A number of those participating in the insurrection belonged to militia or white supremacist groups.
The actions of those rioters were completely indefensible. That doesn’t mean, however, that people weren’t going to try. On his Tuesday night show, Tucker Carlson argued that white supremacists shouldn’t be called domestic terrorists.
Carlson began, “We were allowed to believe any religion we wanted to believe even ones that morning Joe doesn’t understand or approve of. We imagine that was the whole point of America, not anymore. Equity and inclusion means that you will believe what they tell you to believe, period. Or else you’re a terrorist and they can hurt you because we hurt terrorists. Listen to America’s new grand inquisitor, Adam Schiff of California.”
The Fox host later continued:
“Got that? Vote the wrong way, and you are a jihadi. You thought you were an American citizen with rights and just a different view. No, you’re a jihadi. And we are going to treat you the way we treated those radicals after 9/11, the way we treated bin Laden. Get in line pal, this is a war on terror. Keep in mind as you listen to people talk like this, and Adam Schiff is far from the only one, keep in mind they’re talking about American citizens. They’re talking about you.”
WATCH: Glenn Beck Compares Twitters Treatment of Conservatives to Germany’s Treatment of Jews
The Republican party and their cable news surrogates are big on hyperbole. This was seen tonight when multiple GOP Reps. lost their minds over a metal detector placed in the House.
But you can always count on Fox News to take it to the next level. Especially when the segment involves Glenn Beck and Tucker Carlson. On Tuesday night, Beck compared Twitter‘s treatment of Conservatives to Germany‘s treatment of Jews during World War II.
Comparing the current state of social media to Japanese internment, Beck told Carlson, “We made one of the — one of the biggest mistakes of the 20th century by taking our own citizens — and listen to this — confiscating their wealth, making sure they couldn’t work, shutting them down, and then putting them in camps. Tucker, this is the road we’re on again. And it’s not right if it’s the left or the right that is doing it. It’s absolutely un-American.”
After Carlson replied, “That’s right,” Beck continued:
“You can’t have freedom of speech if you can’t have — if you can’t express yourself in a meaningful place. This is — this is like the Germans with the Jews behind the wall. They would put them in the Ghetto. Well, this is the digital ghetto. You — you can talk all you want. Jews, you do whatever you want behind the wall. Well, that’s not meaningful. And that’s where we are. That’s where millions of Americans will be. And again, it’s not to compare it to the Germans. It is not to do anything but warn if you don’t stand up for free speech, you will be the one that loses it as well.”
Tucker Carlson’s Defense of Donald Trump: “Is Any Single President Worth All This Time and Attention?”
Comedian John Mulaney brilliantly described that it’s like to be an American with Trump in the White House in his 2018 special Kid Gorgeous. He referred to Trump as, “a horse in a hospital,” meaning absolute chaos is always right around the corner.
And that unbridled chaos broke out yesterday in Washington DC as a Trump provoked mob stormed the US Capitol.
Trump, of course, was entirely to blame for the seditionists attacking the people’s house. His actions were completely indefensible. That didn’t mean, though, that Tucker Carlson wasn’t going to try.
In an effort to absolve the President for the sins of his term, Carlson argued that we’re just paying Trump too much attention.
The Fox host began the segment, “The people in charge of every institution in American life now spend all day talking about Donald Trump. You may not have noticed because that’s not very different from any other day over the past five years. Since the moment he announced for office it has been all about Donald Trump all the time. The effect on us has been noticeable, we’ve gone from being this big continental country with an enormous span of concerns and interests to a sweaty chat room of 300 million people all of whom are focused on a single man, Donald Trump.”

Tucker Carlson Says Wall St., Silicon Valley and Washington DC all Teamed Up to Rig the Election Against Trump
Donald Trump has exhausted nearly every strategy he had to overturn November’s election results. Once his January 6th attempt fails, there will be no cards left in his deck.
And while Trump may not have yet come to terms with the fact he’s leaving the White House, most of the hosts on Fox News have. And the best way for them to cope with their loss is to start assigning blame.
For Tucker Carlson, the blame is assigned to pretty much any person or organization in power. The Fox host went on a long rant Monday night, blaming Wall St., Silicon Valley and others for rigging the election against Trump.
“Virtually every power center on Earth joined the cause. That included big business, Wall Street, the defense establishment, pharma, the permanent bureaucracy in Washington and above all, Silicon Valley. All of these power centers worked tirelessly from the day Biden got the nomination until the first Tuesday in November to bypass voters and get Joe Biden to the White House.”
WATCH: Tucker Carlson Claims Dr. Jill Biden is “Borderline Illiterate”
Through no fault of her own, Jill Biden’s educational background became a national topic of discussion this week. In a hacky and misogynistic op-ed published in the Wall St. Journal, a guy named Joseph Epstein claimed that the future first lady hasn’t earned the right to be called Doctor.
Rather than ignoring the widely panned column, Fox News had decided to lean into the faux controversy. During his Wednesday show, Tucker Carlson didn’t talk about the COVID-19 pandemic and the destruction it has caused. He talked about Jill Biden’s dissertation.
The Fox host told his viewers that his team had done a deep dive into Biden’s college paper. “Dr. Jill needs reading glasses,” he began. “Either that or she’s borderline illiterate. There are typos everywhere, including in the first graph of the introduction. Dr. Jill can’t write — she can’t really think clearly either. Parts of the dissertation seem to be written in a foreign language using English words.”

In 2016, the influence of Big Tech was very beneficial to Republicans. Facebook’s complete refusal to remove any kind of misinformation helped propel Donald Trump to the White House.
The GOP, however, has spent much of the last 4 years slamming social media companies. Donald Trump, himself, has been especially upset about Twitter slapping fact checks on some of his most egregious tweets.
Another blow was dealt to the GOP on Wednesday by YouTube. Now that Biden’s win has been certified in all 50 states, the website promised to remove videos featuring election misinformation from their platform.
This decision drew the ire of Tucker Carlson who dedicated a segment of his show to the decision. The Fox host began:
“The company that rigged the election by suppressing legitimate information in order to influence the outcome of the election more effectively than any foreign government could ever do is now telling us to preserve our faith in the election, they need to censor us more. So how exactly are election related videos causing harm? Well, YouTube doesn’t explain that. They would cause harm to YouTube’s reputation and Google’s reputation, much deserved. We need to break this company up like immediately.”
“Pretty Soon There Would Be Nobody Left” Tucker Carlson Mocks COVID Death Expectations
The first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic largely took place in certain areas of the country. The hardest hit states were full of Democrats with New York, Washington state and New Jersey being hit the hardest.
The second wave, which is happening right now, has been hitting every state in the Union. Those hardest hit now, though, are typically red states where lawmakers have been less enthusiastic about implementing public safety policies.
And the results are starting to get much worse than we saw earlier in the year. On Thursday, 2,706 people died from the virus. There are 101,000 people in the hospital with COVID, a record for the country. Experts expect the death tally to rise until much of the country is vaccinated.
Tucker Carlson, however, feels that these predictions are only meant to close schools and cancel Christmas. The Fox host told his audience on Thursday:
“You hear me? 250,000 Americans dead. You hear me?” A quarter million people. That’s a lot of people. In fact, that’s more than the total number of combat deaths over the entire American Civil War — which, by the way, lasted 4 years — condensed into a single month. Imagine, a Gettysburg every day of the week.”
Tucker Carlson Says Fauci Should Never Work in Public Policy Again
The last time a pandemic hit the United States was during the 1918 Spanish Flu. And with pandemics only hitting the country every one hundred years or so, it can be difficult for the government to figure out the best way to handle it.
One thing is for certain, though, few could have handled it worse than Donald Trump. The Conservative cable news programs, however, cannot directly attack Trump for his utter failure to combat the virus. Instead they’ve made Dr. Anthony Fauci public enemy number one.
During the nightly broadcasts of Lou Dobbs, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham, the renowned immunologist has been called incompetent. Fauci has been blamed for steering Trump in the wrong direction.
And during his Wednesday night broadcast, Tucker Carlson called for Dr. Fauci to never work in public policy ever again.
The Fox host told his audience:
“Two days before that classified Senate briefing that only 14 senators showed up for, Dr. Tony Fauci went on television to reassure Americans they could relax. Calm down, America, you can trust the Chinese government. If the Chinese are telling us that this virus jumped from a pangolin in a wet market and no one even knew it existed until New Year’s Eve and we’re doing our very best to contain it, then that’s what happened.”
WATCH: Steve Schmidt Thinks Tucker Carlson Will be 2024 Republican Nominee
In late 2015, early 2016, nearly 20 contenders fought it out for the Republican nomination. Many of them had significant political experience, working as senators, congresspeople or governors of large states.
But in the end, GOP voters picked a failed businessman and reality television show host to be their standard bearer. It worked out well for them, as Donald Trump was able to win the presidency and nominate 3 Conservative

Tucker Carlson: Country Won’t Survive Unless We Defeat Black Lives Matter
The principles of the Black Lives Matter movement are clearly stated on the organization’s website. The BLM website reads, “Our intention from the very beginning was to connect Black people from all over the world who have a shared desire for justice to act together in their communities.”
Still, Conservative media has painted the group as some kind of terrorist organization. Tucker Carlson took it a step further on Thursday night, saying that if the Black Lives Matter movement isn’t defeated, the country will not survive.
Carlson, unsurprisingly, began his screed by blaming Barack Obama. “
The violence that Obama’s youth brigades have unleashed on this country in anything have increased racial bigotry and distrust,” he said. “The riots have certainly accelerated residential segregation as higher income people flee the racially diverse cities for sedate monochromatic destinations such as Martha’s Vineyard, where by the way, Barack Obama himself lives.”

“He Triggers Crazies” Dr. Fauci Rips Into Tucker Carlson
Dr. Anthony Fauci has spent his entire medical career helping people survive. Whether he was fighting the AIDS virus or Ebola, the renowned immunologist did his job in a completely apolitical manner.
Donald Trump, however, has politicized the COVID-19 pandemic. And in turn, the surrogates of the President have seen fit to attack Fauci. Among the most relentless of these attackers is Tucker Carlson.
The Doctor was asked about the Fox News host during a recent interview with the Washington Post. According to Fauci, Carlson triggers the crazies.
Writer Geoff Edgars asked, “I flip around the channels at night, which I probably shouldn’t. And I found this guy — you know this guy, Tucker Carlson? You heard of him?”
“He’s the guy that really loves me, right?” replied Fauci.

Edgars then asked, “Does that get under our skin? Does it bother you? On a humane level, do you feel threatened or concerned when you see that kind of thing floating out there?”
The Doctor answered, “I’m not concerned about what he says. It’s a little bit — I think you could say that when he does that, it triggers some of the crazies in society to start threatening me, actually threatening, which actually happens.”
Fauci has had his fair share of issues with supporters of the President. These issues have included death threats against him and his family. The Doctor said of the situation:
“I wouldn’t have imagined in my wildest dreams that people who object to things that are pure public health principles are so set against it, and don’t like what you and I say, namely in the word of science, that they actually threaten you. I mean, that to me is just strange.”
