Liberals have been viciously going after Tucker Carlson ever since his show on Fox News turned into a runaway success for the network over the last four years.
In November of 2018, after a left-wing journalist posted Carlson’s home address online, an ANTIFA mob congregated outside his house chanting, “Tucker Carlson, we will fight, we know where you sleep at night.” The group who called themselves “Smash Racism D.C.,” tweeted out photos of the Carlson property and its address. This is the same group who chased Senator Ted Cruz and his wife Heidi out of a restaurant during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. They told Cruz that he “was not safe.”
When this mob descended onto Carlson’s property, his terrified wife Susie, with whom he has four children, was home alone and locked herself in the pantry after phoning the police. Over the following year, the property was vandalised, ANTIFA returned to make a menace of themselves and the Carlsons regularly received death threats in their letterbox. Though they loved their D.C. home and neighbourhood, the family moved house for the sake of privacy and safety.
Yesterday, Carlson claimed on air that the New York Times was working on a story about where his family had moved to. He said:
“The paper has assigned a political activist called Murray Carpenter to write a story about where we are now. They’ve hired a photographer called Tristan Spinski to take pictures. Their story about where we live is slated to run the paper this week. Editors there know exactly what will happen to my family when it does run. I called them today and I told them. But they didn’t care. They hate my politics. They want the show off the air. If one of my children gets hurt because of a story they wrote, they won’t considered it collateral damage, they know it’s the whole point of the exercise: To inflict pain on our family, to terrorize us, to control what we say. That’s the kind of people they are.”
Of course, the NYT has denied they were going to do any such thing. However, given the dirty doxing-and-cancel-culture that has come to define the paper’s environment, it looks as though this time their low tactics were pre-empted and owned by Carlson on this occasion, especially since he was so confident in the veracity of his information source that he called Carpenter and Spinski out by name.
Last week, Carlson’s top staff-writer, Blake Neff, had to resign after it came to light that he had been posting “racist, misogynist and homophobic” messages under a pseudonym on a social media site used by lawyers and law students:
“Among Neff’s most telling posts are a reference to ‘foodie faggots,’ a comment stating, ‘Black doods staying inside playing Call of Duty is probably one of the biggest factors keeping crime down,’ and another comment stating that Democratic U.S. House Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib, all women of color, want to ‘MAKE YOUR COUNTRY A DUMPING GROUND FOR PEOPLE FROM THIRD WORLD SHITHOLES.’”
Acting in a professional capacity, Carlson sought to distance himself from Neff’s on-the-nose messages, though it’s hard not to notice the truth of them. Liberals are trying to make the case that Neff writing an opinion is the same thing as Carlson writing it. They don’t seem to understand that they are two separate people and one has lost his job over it.
And now comes another Fox News sexual harassment scandal, which Carlson has been placed in the centre of.
Two women, Cathy Areu and Jennifer Eckhart have joined forces in order to bring a lawsuit against Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson and Howie Kurtz for sexual harassment – and against Ed Henry for rape during the course of his sexual fling with Eckhart. Henry was fired on July 1st, 2020, after an internal investigation by the network using a private law firm.
Salonran a story yesterday about the new accusations and asked for Fox News to comment. Fox responded with this statement:
Based on the findings of a comprehensive independent investigation conducted by an outside law firm, including interviews with numerous eyewitnesses, we have determined that all of Cathy Areu’s claims against Fox News, including its management as well as its hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Howard Kurtz and its contributor Gianno Caldwell, are false, patently frivolous and utterly devoid of any merit. We take all claims of harassment, misconduct and retaliation seriously, promptly investigating them and taking immediate action as needed — in this case, the appropriate action based on our investigation is to defend vigorously against these baseless allegations. Ms. Areu and Jennifer Eckhart can pursue their claims against Ed Henry directly with him, as Fox News already took swift action as soon as it learned of Ms. Eckhart’s claims on June 25 and Mr. Henry is no longer employed by the network.
It remains clear that the woke liberals won’t be satisfied until Tucker Carlson’s excellent show is taken off-air, for one reason or another.
