Tucker Carlson Slams Cuomo, Buttigieg in Defense of Christian Trump Supporters

Fox News host Tucker Carlson criticized CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Democratic presidential candidate and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and the Democratic Party elite on his program Monday night for their efforts to label Christians who support President Donald Trump as hypocrites. “What’s going on here? Why all this noise about Christianity? It’s not that the left suddenly cares about the Christian faith. In fact, the opposite,” Carlson argued. The issue of evangelical support for Trump came to the fore after outgoing Christianity Today Editor-in-Chief Mark Galli penned an editorial last week arguing that the president should be removed from office because of ...

Tucker Carlson Clashes with Conservative Think Tank Heritage Foundation over Big Tech

Fox News host Tucker Carlson and Heritage Foundation are locked in combat over whether the Heritage Foundation has put the interests of technology giants ahead of those of conservatives. Carlson made the remarks in a Friday night segment in which he said “Google, Facebook, and Twitter work in secret to impose a left-wing political agenda on this country.” “In all, the Koch network quietly spent at least $10 million defending Silicon Valley companies that work to silence conservatives. The richest companies in the world being defended by a ‘conservative’ nonprofit as they attack conservatives. Why are they doing this? As ... Read more

What Does Tucker Carlson Believe?

Read: The nationalists take Washington The question, then, is whether this larger worldview Carlson is espousing each night, encompassing restrictionism, protectionism, and anti-interventionism, has currency with GOP voters absent a race-based appeal—in other words, whether an economics of meaning alone can sustain a populist revolution on the right. Carlson says it does, and it can. His programming tells another story. On his December 6 broadcast, one day after our interview, Carlson featured Pete D’Abrosca, a North Carolina congressional candidate campaigning on an end to immigration. D’Abrosca’s plan appears rooted in his belief that white Americans are “being replaced by third ... Read more

Fox News and Tucker Carlson are rooting for Russia. Here’s why I’m not.

I served in the U.S. Navy from the closing days of the Vietnam War through the height of the cold war. Ho Chi Minh was a Russian proxy. The USSR was a sworn enemy of the United States. From the time that I entered the Navy, the methods used by Soviet spies to compromise servicemen and women were drilled into us. The bottom line was that once an operative, whether man or woman, had the softest of hooks in you, you were compromised. Once snared, the demands for technical and logistical information increased. Compromised people would be threatened with exposure, ... Read more

Tucker Carlson says he’s rooting for Russia, quickly walks it back

On his Monday night show, Fox News host Tucker Carlson made a comment that was shocking even by his standards. He said he’s rooting for Russia to prevail in its armed conflict with Ukraine’s fledging democracy — a conflict that began when Russia illegally invaded its neighbor years ago and continues to this day. During a segment about impeachment with former Hillary Clinton adviser Richard Goodstein, Carlson questioned why Americans should even care that President Donald Trump used hundreds of millions of dollars of military aid to leverage Ukraine into investigating his political rivals in the first place. Goodstein responded ... Read more

Tucker Carlson Uncovers an AOC Moment of ‘Vicious’ Racism That Has Somehow Been Ignored

It’s the “darker side” to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. During less than a year in office, the congresswoman from New York City has become a heroine to the left, with a public following that has enabled her to dictate policy priorities like the Green New Deal, which has become an article of faith among Democrats running for president. But Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Wednesday pointed out one aspect of Ocasio-Cortez’s beliefs that have gotten little attention from the mainstream media: Not only did she make race a central issue in her 2018 primary campaign against then-Rep. Joe Crowley (“It is ... Read more

Tucker Carlson Hints Real Reason Behind NBC Firing Megyn Kelly: Matt Lauer Scandal

Roughly a year after she was fired by NBC, new information makes it appear that Megyn Kelly wore out her welcome at NBC because she wanted an outside investigation into the extent of sexual harassment at the network, according to Fox News host Tucker Carlson. When Carlson hosted Kelly on his show on Wednesday, the two spoke about the former Fox News star’s departure from NBC, which she joined after leaving Fox behind. Kelly was let go by NBC, ostensibly because of comments she made to the effect that it was fine for white people to wear blackface for Halloween ... Read more
