Tucker Carlson says he’ll take four-day vacation from show after racist writer resigns

One of Fox star Tucker Carlson’s writers resigned last week after racist comments he had posted online were uncovered.

In response to the uproar, Carlson announced on Monday that he is leaving his regularly scheduled nightly show for the rest of the week to go on a “long-planned” trout fishing vacation. 

Enemies of Carlson were practically trembling with glee when it was discovered that Blake Neff, who began working on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” in 2016 and was widely known as Carlson’s top writer, had written racist comments anonymously on an online forum.

Carlson addressed the controversy on his Monday show, denying that Neff”s comments had anything to do with Carlson’s show.’

“What Blake wrote anonymously was wrong,” Carlson said. “We don’t endorse those words. They have no connection to the show. It is wrong to attack people for qualities they cannot control. In this country, we judge people for what they do, not for how they were born.”

Carlson slammed critics using Neff”s indiscretions as a bludgeon, continuing: “We should also point out to the ghouls now beating their chests in triumph at the destruction of a young man that self-righteousness also has its costs.”

“We are all human,” Carlson said. “When we pretend that we are holy, we are lying. When we pose as blameless in order to hurt other people, we are committing the gravest sin of all. And we will be punished for it. There’s no question.”

This is far from Carlson’s first brush with accusations of racism from the mainstream media, as the left will do anything in their attempts to destroy him.

Carlson ended his show with the revelation that he will take a rare vacation from his nightly show. “Gonna spend the next four days trout fishing,” he said. “This is one of those years where if you don’t get it in now, you’re probably not going to. Something dramatic happens, of course, we’ll be back.”

Being a Christian is to forgive when asked for forgiveness. This indiscretion should be forgiven as us Caucasian’s have forgiven hate comments aimed at us from the left.
Just saying

White people rarely say sorry for anything.Most are dead that should have said I’am sorry for the many years of cruelty to and towards black people. I love the cooking shows, but my favorite chef, was kicked off the show because she made a racist remark years ago. She said sorry many times and cried about it. This racist thing can be one sided, because black people have their sins as well. Tucker, I listen at him often, and their is a fine line between racist remarks and the news. He let’s the public know in his rhetoric who he is fighting for. Go on vacation, and make it a long one.

There are racists among white and black people, red, brown, pink or purple. The Lord created us in his image, where there is no racism. He is the only one that can judge us and people need to start understanding that.

I am sorry the savages were ever brought here on those yankee owned ships. And yes, my family did pick their own cotton. I, like them 160 years ago, want to be left the hell alone. Willing to kill to prove my point.

I think you are one of the most honest and endearing person on TV. Take those days and enjoy yourself you deserve it. I know this family will miss you because we watch you every night. When you speak on your show we know it comes from the heart and soul not just the mouth to make talking points. May God always bless you and watch over you. We will all be anxious for your return!

Tucker is the only host on TV whom I watch regularly. I never watch Hannity anymore-too strident and doomsday, Laura Ingraham comes off as arrogant and proud-I read two of her books, and they both showed that quality in her writing, so I do not read her anymore. The Five persons interrupt each other, shout over each other and so I cannot understand a lot of what they say. No respect for each other for sure. Juan is about the worst and the most racist of them all. The daytime show, Outnumbered is not as bad, but again, they interrupt, talk over and show no respect for another point of view. Tucker lets even the most boneheaded and ignorant racists have their say. If they start to take over, he patiently and without yelling, brings them back and gets his say-most of the time-some liberals are much too full of themselves to realize that people are seeing them as they truly are, and deciding they are buffoons.

Tucker, you’re the one one everyone looks for to watch every night, and Hannity. You are both so honest and let Americans know what’s going on in our world when we cant see. Thank you for all you do and for being a part of our family. We just went fishing, caught 44 trout in Utah. Take those fishing days and enjoy them. You have bugger fish to fry when you come back. ❤

Once again, Blake lives in a country where there is free speech. What he said may be offensive to a few but who is to say that those who went after him weren’t guilty of the same sort of “hate”? And yet, Fox News who seems to be growing more and more politically correct, has no spine and has always capitulated to the left’s demands when attacked. I am a big Tucker Carlson fan and my dream would be that Tucker, Jesse Watters, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and a couple of other day time anchors would find a real conservative tv network – if there is another – and leave Fox. I am so over the Murdoch brothers and their liberal like thinking.

I second that.
Is it possible that some wealthy conservatives can start a new network, that all those that you mentioned could go to and/or be part owners of that network.

But what we really need are Conservative LOCAL level news stations because most every current local news does NOT tout the POSITIVES of our great President Trump and other Republicans.

The local Fox news station in Los Angeles does NOT do that, they lean heavily to the left.

Tucker Carlson can not/ does not dictate what others may say or do – left, right or in the middle. His thought process is clear and spot on accurate with regard to all that is going on in American society today. He sees actions for precisely what they are and understands underlying motive. As far as I have observed, he gives neither the left or right a pass when laws are being broken and/or American values are being denigrated. His comments are fully supported with data/facts which many in the news, et al dislike immensely. Sometimes, the truth hurts. Those who dislike him for reinforcing his comments with data should remember, “the truth will set you free”.

Tucker, we love watching you report the true news regardless of which side you’re reporting on each night. I don’t know if Disney owners are giving you a hard time but we are hoping you hang in there. The other reporters on Fox are getting soft in their reporting. If you leave Fox we will probably stop watching this channel. The other reporters, except Hannity, seem to be kowtowing to the left wingers. Thank you Tucker. Put it all in the Lord’s hands.

Earl Driver (@guest_1023028)

One of the most honest news persons I have ever observed. He does his due diligence with data and facts – and then he tells the public the truth. Many do not like to hear the truth. Those who dislike Tucker so much should remember, “the truth will set you free”. He gives no one a pass – left, right or in the middle.

Earl Driver (@guest_1023030)

One of the best. Due diligence with data/facts is unparalleled in the news. Many do not like to hear the truth, much less when the truth is supported with data/facts. Tucker gives no one a pass – left, right or in the middle. He is an absolutely superb critical thinker.

“Tucker”…I am an “ole” lady (95) “You are my guy!!” You SHOULD take a well-deserved vacation…but, make sure you RETURN!! We NEED you….Fox NEEDS you…You tell it like it IS!!!- I have been a Democrat and “worked for” the Democratic Party most of my life…but now….THIS is no longer the Democratic Party of prior years…this is “something” from “outer space”….something “evil”….I think Satan is trying to take over the world.. Pres. Trump, came in…not as a politician, but, a businessman…and DID what He said he would do!! Not a “polished politician” but someone who “worked and performed” as promised. Of course, the “Devils” of this earth, don’t know what to do other than work against anything and everything he tries to accomplish!! Enjoy your vacation, but PLEASE DO RETURN!!

HI Tucker,
We all get it. It’s all in the book of REVALATION……BEWARE OF FALSE PROFITS! The leftists, demonic rats are
full of hate because they are full of fear. They have so much corruption to hide. They know our PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP is coming after them.Just like rats, some of them will jump ship, some will commit suicide. The Epstein filth will bring down a lot of
disgusting scum who have the gaul to call themselves “the too important and too busy to swear under oath to the many scandalous breaches of trust to US and tax payers”! Lying, cheating and stealing, plus traitors of this great land”.
You are one of the good guys. There are a great many of us who believe.in honesty, they cannot be honest, to tell the truth, is a stranger to them! God is watching and they will all go down, not before they ruin a great many people but
THEY WILL.NOT WIN, they have shown their true selves, played their dirty HAND AND AMERICA is watching with GOD and they will vote with our LORD’S DIRECTION. OUR VERY FOUNDATION IS
” IN GOD WE TRUST”. PLEASE STAY THE COURSE, REST IF YOU MUST BUT
DON’T QUIT”! We love our PRESIDENT,
V.P. PENCE,YOU,HANNITY, AND ALL.LOYAL TRUMPERS TO VOTE. VOTE,
VOTE…….BELIEVE, THERE ARE KIND LOVING DEMOCRATS WHO WILL.BE ON THE “RIGHT SIDE” COME NOVEMBER!

Hope you have good luck fishing. I watch you, Hannity and Lou Dobbs every day.I thank all of you for telling it like it is and not sugar coating it. I can’t condone all of this BLM and ANTIFA crap because as a Vietnam veteran with all i’ve seen I believe all lives matter especially the children. But if they want to go to war I think the people of America should take it to them and the leftist who are endorsing them. Load your guns, and load the ballot boxes in November with Republican votes. Thank all of you again for your honesty and telling it like it is. I was born a Yankee but have been down South A long time. I also have a confederate flag that I fly just because they said I couldn’t have one. All countries have their bleak periods in History just like we did. But as for destroying our history I don’t condone that either. YOU CAN’T HAVE A FUTURE WITHOUT A PAST. Thank You for what you do……………………….
