The attacks against FOX NEWS host Tucker Carlson are getting out of control.
Carlson slammed former Fox News colleague Carl Cameron for recent comments saying Tucker should be be jailed or ‘end up in something worse,’ for his show’s content.
Apparently the former reporter said Tucker should ‘“Maybe wind up in jail or maybe something worse” over the weekend to CNN’s Jim Acosta, which criticized the host for spreading false and potentially harmful material.
From Daily Mail:
‘What’s “something worse?”‘ Carlson, 53, asked his audience, after airing a clip of the remarks from former reporter Cameron, which the host told his audience to take as a threat.
‘We’re not sure what “something worse” is – but it certainly feels like we’re moving toward it at a very high speed at this point,’ Carlson seemed to warn, before ominously adding, ‘That’s the end point to talk like that – “something worse.”‘
Carlson – who has come under fire for comments that leftist critics say support ‘The Great Replacement theory, a racist ideology that allegedly inspired the accused Buffalo mass shooter and New Zealand Mosque killer – went on to criticize the left for trying to push a narrative that he is racist.
‘Rhetoric has it’s own internal logic,’ Carlson, on of the network’s most prominent voices, said. ‘We’ve experienced it – we can talk ourselves into things. We’ve all done that.’
He continued: ‘Democrats are doing it right now. And what they’re talking themselves into right now, is, quote, “something worse.” It’s scary.’
The host then offered what appeared to be a grim warning to his progressive critics.
‘It is time to pull back, it is time to deescalate – otherwise this is going to get really ugly, really soon.’
USA Features reports that the former Fox Newser compared remarks about certain issues Carlson makes on his shows akin to yelling ‘fire’ in a crowded movie theater.
“The fact of the matter is, if you disturb the peace by starting a riot in a movie theater, cops are going to arrest you and you might end up in jail or you might end up in something worse,” Cameron said.
Carlson has come under fire in the aftermath of the mass shooting in Buffalo, in which a young white male appeared to target mostly black patrons, killing 10 of them before surrendering to police.
The popular Fox News host is being blamed because he has accused Democrats in the past of wanting to ‘import’ third-world poor to replace American citizens who don’t vote for them and change the demographic landscape, what critics have called a “Great Replacement Theory.”
The shooter was apparently a subscriber to that theory, though he also expressed a disdain for Fox News.
“The president has to be more forceful and sooner or later the law enforcement and the US government is going to have to stop the lying because it’s causing people’s deaths,” Cameron told Acosta.
“It’s not just Fox, it’s social media in general. It’s on the internet. And we have to remember that a good portion of what we read is coming from folks who aren’t Americans, pretending to be Americans in order to gaslight them even worse,” he said.
On Monday, Cameron, who blames Fox News and conservative media for the Buffalo shooting, called for government intervention to take Carlson off the air, comparing his broadcasts to the trope of falsely shouting fire in a crowded theater.
‘The fact of the matter is, if you disturb the peace by starting a riot in a movie theater, cops are going to arrest you and you might end up in jail or you might end up in something worse,’ said Cameron, who now run progressive news aggregator Front Page Live.
What a freaking nutcase.
Carlson has come under renewed scrutiny in the aftermath of the Buffalo supermarket shooting that killed 10 African American people on May 14, after it emerged the suspect in the shooting was a subscriber to the white nationalist ‘The Great Replacement Theory.’
The theory – which states that non-white immigration is a liberal plot to alter the cultural landscape of the United States – is something that Carlson has repeatedly been accused of espousing on his show.
During the interview, Cameron suggested Carlson be censored and de-platformed because he ‘puts out falsehoods that cause damage and violent, violent hate’ – but did not outright accuse the host of pedaling the racist ideology.
The on-air discussion served as the most recent installment of a media tour that has seen Cameron blame conservative media for the shooting at the Buffalo Tops supermarket on May 17.
Screw these liberal idiots.
How’s Biden working out for y’all?
