On last night’s episode, the conservative mouthpiece decided to dedicate a segment to his disdain for the Black Lives Matter movement. The 51-year-old man told his viewers the BLM movement wasn’t about “black lives.”
He said, “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.”
Tucker has been critical of the protests over George Floyd’s murder and previously expressed his belief that systemic racism doesn’t exist. During the segment, he ranted about liberals wanting to get rid of police and replace them with some “woke militia.”
He added, “Imagine if the Black Lives Matter rioters had weapons and immunity from prosecution. That’s what they are talking about. Partisan law enforcement, and partisan law enforcement, incidentally, is hardly without precedent. In fact, it’s the rule in the Third World. This is an attempt to bring it here.”
Many caught wind of Tucker’s rant and started roasting him on social media. One wrote, “I’m shaking I’m so angry!!! This man must be stopped. He’s a menace and a fear monger.”
“Fox News needs to be taking off the air for ALL THE LIES AND BS they put out..” said another. Jamie Foxx commented, “Here’s what they think aboutchu @icecube voice”, which is a reference to Cube’s N.W.A. diss song “No Vaseline.”
One person said, “They want to start a race war .. it’s the only thing they can do. They’re losing their grip. #unitedwestanddividedwefall.”
“Tucker Carlson is a known closeted white supremacist. Not even shocked,” claimed another. Others called for his show to be canceled writing, “He needs to be fired and the show needs to be canceled.”
As The Blast previously reported, Tucker’s fellow “Fox News” host, Laura Ingraham, continues to feel the heat for her alleged racism. Many took issue with her praising Drew Brees for speaking out against kneeling during the National Anthem.
In 2018, Laura famously told Lebron James and Kevin Durant to “shut up and dribble” and stop talking about politics. Lebron retweet a video that showed the two clips side-by-side writing, “If you still haven’t figured out why the protesting is going on. Why we’re acting as we are is because we are simply F-N tired of this treatment right here! Can we break it down for you any simpler than this right here???? ??♂. And to my people don’t worry I won’t stop until I see.”
Many have been calling for Laura’s sponsors to stop advertising with Laura. The majority of sponsors have remained silent despite including Sandal’s Resorts, Lifelock, Tivity Health, Safelite and others.
One person trashed Ingraham writing, “Many many people are saying Laura Ingraham is a racist ass bitch who should be fired from FoxNews.”
After catching heat, Ingraham responded on The Ingraham Angle saying, “Well, without dwelling on the nuance between the two instances, let me be very clear about what I believe: We are all children of God, regardless of our racial or political differences and therefore must be treated equally.”
“Every American, every-American has the God-given right to speak his mind on any issue. I think in order to heal and shed light on gross injustices, our country needs more dialogue, not less. And we need more respect, less retribution.”
“Emotions are hot right now and unfortunately, in times like these, we often find ourselves, I know it’s easy to do, talking past each other.”
“Right now Americans, I think most of them, are looking for reconciliation. That means politicians, police, and even cultural figures all working together. All of us. We are all human beings on this earth for a very short period of time when you think about it, This is a moment when we should be listening and learning. All of us.”
Tucker Carlson is a racist on a racist network who spreads racism to a bunch of racist viewers in a defense of an orange racist.
