Tucker Carlson is the most popular host on cable news and one of Donald Trump’s biggest supporters.
Those two facts make him a target for the Left.
And in recent days Tucker Carlson was about to lose his job because of this comment about Black Lives Matter.
The left-wing thought police are running roughshod over America right now.
Anyone that does not bow in fealty to Black Lives Matter faces loss of employment as “cancel culture” kicks into high gear.
The latest target was Tucker Carlson.
During a recent broadcast, Carlson attacked woke mobs of Democrats for trying to censor people’s thoughts and warned his audience they could be the next target.
“This may be a lot of things, this moment we’re living through, but it is definitely not about Black lives,” Carlson told his audience. “And remember that when they come for you — and at this rate, they will.”
Sensing opportunity in a moment where corporations are rushing to prove how “woke” they are, liberal activists falsely claimed that Carlson claimed armed black men were coming after his white audience.
This led to multiple sponsors dropping their ads from Carlson’s program.
“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,” Deadline reported.
This is not the first time the Left tried to force Carlson off the air with a sponsor boycott.
That happened a few years ago when liberal activists claimed Carlson’s comments about immigrants were racist and several corporate cowards pulled their ads.
Fox News refused to cave then and Carlson announced on a subsequent broadcast that Fox News would not give into the demands of the mob that it censor Carlson by firing him.
Will the outrage mob succeed in cancelling Tucker Carlson?
