The same night the liberal broadcast networks ABC and NBC were acting as though Trump’s combative press conference on Wednesday was some kind of affront to the First Amendment, the Washington D.C. area home of Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson was under assault by a radical leftist mob shouting threats. During both their morning and evening broadcasts Thursday, ABC and NBC ignored the actual attack on someone’s free speech.
Calling into his eponymous Fox News Channel program on Thursday due to previously scheduled off time, Tucker Carlson responded to Antifa’s threats to both himself and his family outside his home on Wednesday by telling fill-in co-host Brian Kilmeade that these “lunatics” have a “totalitarian” mindset who carried out “a threat to free expression to all of us.”
In a string of disturbing tweets Thursday afternoon, Vox Senior Correspondent and co-founder Matthew Yglesias actually justified a mob of left-wing Antifa activists surrounding the home of Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson and terrorizing his family. Even as other journalists and pundits across the political spectrum condemned the incident, Yglesisas insisted that he “cannot empathize” with Carlson or his family.
The group known as “Smash Racism DC” on social media posted a video of their antics on Twitter, which had since been deleted by the site. But the video could still be found on Facebook. In the video, radical leftist agitators can be heard threatening Carlson and his family by chanting: “Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!”
In the age of Trump, the American media insist that freedom of speech is in danger because they somehow consider mocking journalists a suppression of free speech. Yet these First Amendment worshipers were missing on October 25 when the European Court of Human Rights upheld an Austrian court verdict that a woman should be punished for casting aspersions on the Islamic biography of Mohammed, the prophet, who married a child bride named Aisha.
The battle between PragerU and YouTube just escalated — big time. YouTube initially marked PragerU’s new video, featuring Fox News host Tucker Carlson, as “dangerous or derogatory content.”
With the midterms just three weeks away, the radical left have been lashing out more and more against GOP candidates and lawmakers as Election Day drew closer. In recent days, the left has taken to even physically assaulting people on the right. This rash of attacks and threats had gone largely unreported on the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC). But during Wednesday’s edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Fox News anchor Trace Gallagher reported what the networks refused to.
Being screamed at in restaurants: it’s not just for GOP pals and Trump administration types anymore.
Following the Senate’s confirmation vote to elevate Brett Kavanaugh to an associate justice of the Supreme Court, a radical pack of leftist protesters descended on the highest court in the land. Together, some scaled the statues while others clawed and banged on the historic building's massive bronze doors. By all reasonable accounts, it was a raging mob but the liberal media despised that term. During Wednesday’s edition of his show, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson chastised the media for their nonsense.
During Wednesday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, the eponymous host lamented the fact that the ABC program The View has “recently warped from a breezy daytime show into a font of deranged propaganda.” Carlson had previously played a clip of View co-host Whoopi Goldberg saying that Donald Trump Jr. should only fear for his son in the wake of the Kavanaugh mass hysteria if he thinks his son “has these tendencies,” adding “If your child is not someone who is assaulting people, it shouldn’t be a concern for you.”
