Leftists pounce on Tucker Carlson. Conservatives should, too.

Published

on

Update: Carlson responded.

Original Story:

Social media is exploding after Fox News host Tucker Carlson had some of his old soundbites pulled from the ever-present historical clouds of the internet that revealed him making disgusting comments about underage girls, defending Warren Jeffs, and making generally misogynistic comments on radio shows from 2006 to 2011. He was hired by Fox News in 2009.

The clips, compiled by progressive propaganda machine Media Matters, are extremely damaging to a television personality who has built his reputation on being a straight talker.

My Take

Leftists are pouncing. They should be. These weren’t inaccurately characterized statements pulled out of context for the most part. These clips are indefensible and conservatives should be shaking their collective heads in unison.

Perhaps each one in a vacuum can be disregarded as careless, but the body of work Media Matters compiled demonstrates a trend that shouldn’t be dismissed by those of us who believe in conservatism, family values, and holding people accountable for their actions. If anything, we should be the loudest in condemning Carlson over his remarks even though he’s good at exposing leftist hypocrisies.

We lose credibility when we attack the left based on one set of rules but hide the rule book when someone fighting by our side strays. This isn’t one of those cases where someone was being a little too loose with their words at a time when such things were okay. The shock jock era wasn’t okay during the shock jock era, at least by my reckoning. If that’s what is required to get enough popularity in order to land a real gig, then it’s a path no conservative should follow.

Tucker Carlson should resign. He took it too far. I know it was in the past, but his willingness to say those things should disqualify him from being an influencer as part of a major news outlet. I know this opinion will be unpopular, but it’s how I feel.

Will you help revive the American Conservative Movement?

    A month or so ago I heard Tucker making some long overdue points against the inordinate amount of influence big corporate interests have over American, and especially Republican politics. I wondered at the time how long and how before he would be punished for his uppity attitude. Now it is clear that the crony capitalists will dispose of him in the same way they did Sarah Palin. No conservative voice can be raised against corporate greed. Only “socialists” get that subject. It is how the international fascist oligarchy coheres.

      I don’t disagree, but I believe Media Matters was working on their own accord. They love attacking conservatives and sometimes it hits home.

    Having Tucker resign is what the left wants and is the tactic they use to get rid of conservatives. Yes, what he said was horrible but people make mistakes. No one is perfect except for the Lord. I just donated to your site and hope I made the right decision.

      I appreciate you, Kim. Your comments are thoughtful. No, the left doesn’t want to get rid of Tucker Carlson. They want Tucker to stay front and center representing conservatism so anything he says can be attacked on social media. They’ll say he’s “our guy” after saying he likes “that scenario” of school-age girls in dorm rooms exploring each other’s bodies. They want Tucker representing us when hundreds of conservative personalities are waiting in the wing to do exactly what he’s doing now, perhaps better.

    These are the same democrats who support what Rashida Tlaib called President Trump when she urged that he be impeached. I don’t believe the moral equivalence argument is effective either but it’s not always a moral issue. If the democrats use obscenities when railing, why would anyone heed their whines when their enemies use it. Take a long look at Media Matters for a definition of obscenity.

      If would be totally different and I would defend Carlson, as I have done in the past, if it were simply obscenities. But he went too far with his references to school-age girls in sexual situations with each other. That’s not the guy I want representing the conservative movement.

    The writer of this story sounds like a left wing, whining wimp….”Mommy, mommy, the man said bad things many years ago and my wittle hands are too small to cover my ears, so let’s punish him now.”

    This entire debate is not about what people said or did a long time ago.It is not about competing with the left to see who can rack up the biggest numbers of firings or resignations. it is about retaining freedom and holding at bay those who would take away that freedom, and Tucker Carlson has shown that he has become a staunch defender of that freedom.

      There are plenty of good, staunch defenders of freedom who see a problem with “liking that scenario” of children exploring each other’s bodies.

      As for being a left wing whining wimp, no. I’ve fought too hard to dismantle the hyper-leftist apparatus that feeds of faux-conservatives who defend people like Tucker Carlson. They LOVE the fact that faux-conservatives pretend like there’s nothing wrong with someone who argued in defense of a man that arranged marriage between adult men and female children. It perpetuates their lunacy and gives them no reason to listen to the tenets of “conservatives” who make excuses for people like Tucker Carlson as if there aren’t hundreds of other staunch conservatives who can have guests on Fox News and attack leftists.

      The problem with people like you is that you defend Carlson’s public declarations about child sexual activities, then go out there acting like your actions are benefiting America somehow. You troll the internet using false or incomplete names, and have the audacity to call someone fighting for a true conservative future for the nation, “whining wimp.” You, Al, are oh so brave. Stay anonymous, friend. It’s safer there. Tucker loves you either way.

Conservative Media, we need to blacklist Trump-Russia story and move on

Conservative Media we need to blacklist Trump-Russia story and move on

To The Daily Wire, One America News, Washington Times, Blaze Media, and all others to the right of Fox News,

There was no collusion and no obstruction. It took over two years for this narrative to search under every stone and exhaust millions of dollars to, in the end, find nothing. The leftist media will not make many concessions, especially as it relates to obstruction for a crime that was not committed. We cannot as conservatives prove beyond an unreasonable doubt that Trump did not collude or obstruct. As Democrats in Congress keep the narrative on life support, the Conservative media needs to pull the plug.

The average American is fatigued by the Trump-Russia collusion/obstruction narrative. Meanwhile our effort is playing defense against a leftist narrative rather than reporting on issues both our base and the politically uninvolved care far more about. When the economy is strong and the border crisis is pressing, why is so much of our attention directed towards the soap opera clown show that takes place? Instead of countering this narrative, conservative media should starve the narrative of as much attention as possible.

An area which Conservatives have long failed, but have made great improvements towards, is controlling the narrative, the language and Overton Window of society. If we continue to counter the leftist narrative of the Trump-Russia conspiracy theory, we will continue to feed their power in controlling the narrative in the American political and cultural arena. Instead, let us make an effort to not only counter the narrative but set the narrative.

In our friendly rivalry as Conservative outlets, let us come together and collectively move on from the Trump-Russia story, discarding it as if it were a flat-earth conspiracy and move on.

Cory Booker in the aggregate: Propagating the ’mass shooting every day’ deception

Cory Booker In the aggregate Propagating the mass shooting every day deception

Witness the formation of a false talking point by continual repetition.

Presidential candidate Cory Booker et al. has repeated the same line of ‘a mass shooting every day, in the aggregate’ for the past few weeks in various town halls and interviews. Like most Leftist talking points, this absurd assertion has been carefully constructed to foment a pithy little saying unmoored from reality. The fact is, the Liberty grabber Left exploites every mass shooting to maximum effect, to the point that they have begun to regularly use ‘anniversaries’ of these tragedies to push for more controls over our freedom.  Even in this case, it has it’s own escape clause of ‘in the aggregate’ if anyone is ever called on this deception..

Just for reference, this is the Oxford English dictionary entry for the phrase ‘in (the) aggregate’

In total; as a whole.

Again, even here reality isn’t too kind to the Left. The fact is, there hasn’t been a ‘mass shootings in the aggregate every day.’ Or ‘mass shootings In total every day.’ As in this video at the 5:10 mark.

This is as yet another case where the Left doesn’t care about the truth of the matter, only the setting of a certain perception in the public consciousness. It doesn’t matter that each and every mass shooting is exploited from beginning to end. Or that even the hint of one taking place will see news bulletins instantly going out over the wire.

That plain fact doesn’t stop Leftists from trying to promulgate the false perception of gun violence being an overwhelming ‘epidemic’ that demands the immediate implementation of drastic measures.

Repeating a lie doesn’t make it true.

Despite the admonitions from infamous Leftists Adolph Hitler and Vladimir Lenin, repeating a lie doesn’t make it the truth, but it is part and parcel for Leftists to traffic in lies. The fact is, mass shootings are rare, no matter what kind of creativity in defining these distinctive events to include just about anything imaginable.

The plain fact is that Leftists need ‘serious crisis’ in order to ratchet down our Liberty. When reality fails to meet their needs, they just make up their own ‘in the aggregate’. Never mind that there aren’t mass shootings every day, the national socialist Left would like that to be the perception so they can push their gun confiscation agenda. They push the ‘gun violence is a unique problem in the states’ even though other nations are far more violent, but as they drift further and further into insanity their grip on reality has become that much more tenuous.

Here are 8 stubborn facts on gun violence in America from the Heritage Foundation

Here are 8 stubborn facts on gun violence in America from the Heritage Foundation

These are 8 facts that eviscerate the usual Leftist mendacity on the common sense human right of self-defense.

The Heritage Foundation recently produced a well-sourced list of 8 facts on gun violence that will serve to demolish the usual lies promulgated by the Liberty grabber Left in trying to deprive the people of their basic human right of self-defence.

This is an excerpt of the list with a few pertinent facts and links for each, follow this link to obtain the full story.

Are there ways to reduce gun violence and school shootings? Yes, but only after objectively assessing the facts and working collaboratively to fashion commonsense solutions.

1. Violent crime is down and has been on the decline for decades.
According to the National Crime Victimization Survey, violent crime has been declining steadily since the early 1990s.
The 2011 homicide rate was almost half https://www.cnn.com/2013/05/08/us/study-gun-homicide/index.html of the rate in 1991, and according to the Pew Research Center, the 2013 gun-related death rate was half of the rate in 1993.

2. The principal public safety concerns with respect to guns are suicides and illegally owned handguns, not mass shootings.

According to the Pew Research Center, almost two-thirds of America’s annual gun deaths are suicides. Since 1981, when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention began publishing data, gun suicides have outnumbered gun homicides. In 2010 alone, 19,392 Americans used guns to kill themselves.

Most gun-related crimes are carried out with illegally owned firearms —as much as 80 percent according to some estimates.

3. A small number of factors significantly increase the likelihood that a person will be a victim of a gun-related homicide.

4. Gun-related murders are carried out by a predictable pool of people.

5. Higher rates of gun ownership are not associated with higher rates of violent crime.

Higher rates of concealed carry permit holders are even more strongly associated with reduction in violent crime than are right-to-carry states. The probable reason for this is that right-to-carry studies often include “open carry” states, which have not been shown to correlate with more people actually carrying or even owning firearms. Rates of concealed carry permit holders are better indicators of the number of people who actually possess and carry firearms within a given population.

6. There is no clear relationship between strict gun control legislation and homicide or violent crime rates.

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence ironically makes this clear with its ratings for states based on gun laws. “Gun freedom” states that score poorly, like New Hampshire, Vermont, Idaho, and Oregon, have some of the lowest homicide rates. Conversely, “gun control-loving” states that received high scores, like Maryland and Illinois, experience some of the nation’s highest homicide rates.

Great Britain has some of the strictest gun control laws in the developed world, but the violent crime rate for homicide, rape, burglary, and aggravated assault is much higher than that in the U.S.

7. Legally owned firearms are used for lawful purposes much more often than they are used to commit crimes or suicide.

In 2013, President Barack Obama ordered the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to assess existing research on gun violence. The report, compiled by the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council, found (among other things) that firearms are used defensively hundreds of thousands of times every year.

According to the CDC, “self-defense can be an important crime deterrent.” Recent CDC reports acknowledge that studies directly assessing the effect of actual defensive uses of guns have found “consistently lower injury rates among gun-using crime victims compared with victims who used other self-protective strategies.”

AR-15s have been used to save lives on many occasions

8. Concealed carry permit holders are not the problem, but they may be part of the solution.

Regression estimates show a significant association between increased permit ownership and a drop in murder and violent crime rates. Each percentage point increase in rates of permit-holding is associated with a roughly 2.5 percent drop in the murder rate.

Concealed carry permit holders are often “the good guy with a gun,” even though they rarely receive the attention of the national media. Concealed carry permit holders were credited with saving multiple lives

Our Take.

The Left’s socialist national agenda is a house of cards based on a foundation of lies and false presumptions. Their incessant obsession with depriving the people of the right of self-defense is no exception. This is why the work of the Heritage foundation and others is so important in pulling together these facts to instantly counter Leftist FEELings – Frequently Encountered Emotional Lies. Please be sure to bookmark these facts for future use in the defense of Liberty. We can be assured that they will be needed at everyone’s fingertips for the near future.
