Tucker Carlson is the top rated talk show host on cable news.
That success made him a marked man and discovered a new way to take him off the air.
Now Fox News looked at Canceling Tucker Carlson after this scandal erupted.
As Black Eye Politics reports:
Several years ago, liberal activists tried to force Carlson off the air by boycotting his advertisers.
The left-wing thought police mob falsely claimed Carlson made racist remarks about immigrants.
While numerous corporate cowards pull their ads from Carlson’s show, Fox News stood behind their host.
Now the cancel culture mob is back after Carlson smelling blood in the water.
In the wake of police officers murdering George Floyd, corporate CEOs cannot race to social media fast enough to virtue signal about how much their companies value diversity and loudly state that black lives matter.
In a recent monologue, Carlson attacked the Democrats’ online rage mobs that terrorize individuals and companies that refuse to swear their allegiance to left-wing identity politics’ orthodoxy.
Carlson said the left exploited George Floyd’s death to seize power and that the subsequent power grabs had nothing to do with George Floyd, justice, or black lives.
“This may be a lot of things, this moment we’re living through, but it is definitely not about Black lives,” Carlson stated. “And remember that when they come for you — and at this rate, they will.”
The backlash was instantaneous.
Carlson’s enemies on the left tried to strangle Carlson’s program financially by pressuring companies to yank their ads off his show.
This pressure campaign achieved success as T-Mobile and Disney pulled their ads from Carlson’s program.
Deadline reported that “both Disney and T-Mobile have cut ties with the primetime Tucker Carlson Tonight over the host’s polarizing point of view on the Black Lives Matter movement and the desire for justice and equality in America that many of its members advocate.”
Disney later claimed that the advertisements for ABC shows – which Disney owns – were initially placed on Carlson’s show by mistake.
“The ABC advertisements were placed on the show without our knowledge by third party media buyers who were unaware that we do not advertise on the show, and they have now been notified not to place any further ads,” ABC claimed in a statement to Deadline.
But T-Mobile celebrated pulling their support for Carlson’s show.
“It definitely is not. Bye-bye Tucker Carlson!” T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert wrote.
Carlson went on the air the next night and said that while left-wing activists pressured Fox News to fire him, they failed because Fox would not give in to ideological bullies.
There is no doubt the nation was thrown back on its heels by the police killing George Floyd.
And while there are reforms to policing that governments at every level can make, many Americans feel the left is seizing on the emotion of the moment to fundamentally transform the nation while no one is looking.
