Tucker Carlson’s thinly veiled racism has catapulted into full-throated white supremacy since he ascended to a prime-time spot on Fox News. Carlson constantly stokes fears about the cultural displacement of white Americans and the ongoing threat to the national culture purportedly posed by immigration and diversity.
The shit @TuckerCarlson does for clout. White supremacy is not a hoax and he knows this. He makes his money by fueling ignorance amongst the masses #FireTuckerCarlson pic.twitter.com/mBWnypdtgN— Nick Truog 🐎 (@LiberalStallion) August 7, 2019
He has the support of David Duke.
Tucker is RIGHT! White Supremacy is a ZioMedia Conspiracy Theory! The term is itself a lie. Millions of White activists are NOT “supremacists” We seek NOT to oppress or destroy any race! Human Rights for all – EVEN FOR WHITE PEOPLE! Stop antiWhite racism!https://t.co/vY0knfD0Xx— David Duke (@DrDavidDuke) August 7, 2019

I’ve analyzed every ad on Fox News over past 3 years. If I had to zero in on 4 companies that’d shake Fox News to core if they said they’d stop sponsoring unless Fox changed, it’d be:— Angelo Carusone (@GoAngelo) August 8, 2019
On his show last night, Tucker Carlson announced a sudden vacation. Fox News insists it was a “pre-planned vacation”. Bill O’Reilly took a “pre-planned” vacation after his sexual harassment settlements were disclosed & did not return. On the other hand, Laura Ingraham last year and Sean Hannity in 2017 each announced sudden vacations amid boycott calls yet both eventually returned.
