It was 13 years ago, he's changed and doesn't hold those views anymore.

 

Yeah, when he was at the ripe young teenage/young twenty-something age of 36! :p Now he's 49, he's totally different now. 

 

I know you're kidding, but it reminds me of when Don Jr. got in trouble in 2017 and the alt-right said don't go after him he's just Trump's kid . . . who is now 41 years old.

Carson seems to be feeling some heat heat

 

Quote

“Why are the people who consider Bill Clinton a hero lecturing me about sexism?” he asked, rhetorically. “How can the party that demands racial quotas denounce other people as racist? After awhile you begin to think that maybe their criticisms aren’t sincere. Maybe their moral puffery is a costume.

The fate of the human soul and the moral regeneration of society do not interest “progressives” who are “too busy pushing late-term abortion and cross-dressing on fifth-graders,” argued Carlson, whose FNC primetime program, along with those of Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham, are among the most popular on cable news, and on basic cable TV.

As Carlson was making his case, Media Matters released another batch of controversial Carlson comments made in the past on the radio talk show, on MSNBC, where Chris Hayes noted, Carlson was working when he made many of the remarks.

Media Matters’ Carlson campaign coincides with an advertiser meeting at which Fox will showcase its content and talent.

In Monday’s monologue, Carlson also played The Hollywood Card:

“These are the people who write our movies and our sitcoms,” he warned. “They are not shocked by naughty words. They just pretend to be when it’s useful. It’s been very useful lately.”

The left’s main goal, he told his viewers, is “controlling what you think” by controlling the information you receive.

Google, and Facebook and Twitter, he blasted, are “fully on board … happy to ban unapproved thoughts.”

Fox News’ “opinion hours” he described as an oasis of “independent thought.”

It’s not much, relatively speaking, he suggested. But, “for the left, it’s unacceptable; they demand total conformity,” he said of “the left.”

“Since the day we went on the air they’ve been working hard to kill this show.” he insisted, explaining to viewers he has not mentioned that before because “it seemed too self-referential.”

“The point of the show has never been us,” he added.

Going forward, he said, he will cover “their” efforts to “make us be quiet.”

In conclusion, he assured his viewers Fox News stands firmly behind his show which, on Monday, featured just four ad breaks featuring a mix of direct-response ads, Fox promos, and national spots. That mirrors the company’s stance last December, when Carlson made an on-air remark about immigrants making the country “poorer and dirtier,” triggering another round of count-the-advertisers, as some sponsors pulled ads, while some of the show’s biggest buyers stood with Carlson. Fox News has, in the past, said advertisers asking to be moved out of one of its primetime programs have been scheduled elsewhere on the lineup.

Maybe if enough sponsors pull out of his program Fox will decide he's not worth it anymore and replace him.

As more audio clips surface, the more I think he's toast. 

 

But it's Fox, so who knows. I can say that the things he said were reprehensible to say in 2006 and they remain reprehensible today.

Tucker Carlson is a piece of shit, and has always been a piece of shit.  I'm not going to give kudos to advertisers pulling out now, they had no problem with the garbage he spewed on a daily basis because of ratings.

In this day and age, something good happening because of the optics of the situation is better than nothing good happening at all. If advertisers pulling out now is what gets Tucker Carlson to maybe lose his job because the court of public opinion is finally turning on him, I'm all for it even with the hypocrisy of the advertisers not pulling out back when he first made these (and many other) horrible comments and statements.

Just remember Disney fired James Gunn for saying stupid things on a Twitter feed a DECADE AGO before they hired him.

Disney has higher standards than Fox News. This is not a surprising statement.

Because James Gunn is a decent person that cared about the hurtful things he said and apologized. In hindsight, he should have told people to get over it because they were just dumb jokes.

Kind of interesting when you realize both him and Tucker kind of talked about the same thing.

And they were being said over roughly the same time period, so no “things were different back then” defense.

Interesting that both he and Laura took "vacations" around the time they caught heat.

Do you think Gunn made more money for Disney/Marvel than Tucker has for Fox?

Definitely was already going on vacation and not at all related to his racist, homophobic, and misogynistic comments.

He says more offensive things on his show every single day. Tucker Carlson is a morally bankrupt pathetic little shill. He stands for nothing. His views on literally everything are total garbage.

 

I'm not religious, but if I believed in stuff like that, there would be a special place in hell for people like Tucker Carlson. He's a literal monster. A true agent of evil in this world.
