Fox News host Tucker Carlson is one of the few major political pundits willing to stand up for American values and push back against the mob, so of course, the left is using the current social and racial unrest to try to unseat him.
After Carlson’s comments about the “Black Lives Matter” organization angered sponsors, social media exploded with calls to end his career. His supporters rallied behind him, however, making the hashtag “#IStandWithTucker” go viral on Twitter.
The woke mob has dominated the conversation for weeks, canceling celebrities and public figures with vicious abandon, and successfully bullied several of Carlson’s sponsors into yanking their support from his show after he called out the protesters.
“This may be a lot of things, this moment we are living through, but it is definitely not about black lives and remember that when they come for you, and at this rate, they will,” Carlson said last week, sparking outrage.
Numerous mainstream media outlets picked up the story, labeling him a racist for questioning the motives behind the widespread protests in the US.
The backlash prompted major sponsors such as Disney and Comcast to cancel their sponsorships, sparking rumors that Carlson’s show could be canceled by Fox altogether since opposition to the protests and riots is now an unacceptable position to espouse publically.
However, Carlson’s supporters and fans came out en force, with prominent public figures such as Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), political author Brigitte Gabriel, and Congressional candidate Burgess Owens tweeting calls to support Carlson. The hashtag #IStandWithTucker went viral, earning thousands of retweets.
Fox News, to its credit, has stood behind Carlson, refusing to allow the pressure to cancel his show.
