Fox News host Tucker Carlson is under the gun yet again from the digital lynch mob after telling the truth about Russia and Syria during an episode of his eponymous TV program on Monday.
While virtually every mainstream news personality has hammered Syria and Russia, Carlson has remained a lone voice urging skepticism of the blind hatred against these two countries who have been key allies in the coalition to destroy ISIS.
He featured a controversial segment on his show responding to recent reports that gas attacks that were allegedly performed by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad last year may not have even happened.
Carlson defended President Trump’s foreign policy in Syria and hammered the fake news media for reporting this dubious claim as if it were undeniable fact in an attempt to lead us toward war in Syria:

While those comments have certainly angered war hawks, it is Carlson’s remarks regarding Russia from the same broadcast that have really caused the large social media backlash against him.
Carlson suggested that ongoing squabbles between Ukraine and Russia are none of America’s business, and he even said that he was rooting for Russia – which is heresy in an era of frenzied neo-McCarthyism.
“Why do I care, why do I care what is going on in the conflict between Ukraine and Russia?” Carlson said during a discussion with former Hillary Clinton adviser Richard Goodstein. “And I’m serious. Why do I care. Why shouldn’t I root for Russia, which I am.”
“Because those of us watching — myself — think preserving democracy is important,” Goodstein replied.
“I don’t care!” Carlson exclaimed.

This caused Russophobic liberals on Twitter to spur into action, attempting to form a digital lynch mob to cancel Carlson because he expressed an opinion they disagree with.
Tucker Carlson is siding with Russia over Ukraine. Just wanted people to know that. He admitted it on his show. Make Putin Great Again for Western Civilization and God's Divine Plan and the Free Market Something Something.

Tucker Carlson said he’s rooting for Russia and he believes white supremacy is a myth. He advises the president of the United States. I know it’s Holiday Party season in DC, but it sure would be great if people took this shit seriously.

The endorsement of Russia's aggression against Ukraine delivered tonight by @TuckerCarlson is a pretty specialized form of Trump admiration. It's not characteristic of very many of those who cast that misguided vote in 2016.

There are people who will wake up tomorrow and go to work at @foxnews in service to this belligerent danger to democracy, this Putin sycophant, this despicable person, @TuckerCarlson. Many of them don't believe anything he says. They just draw a check. Shame on them.

Carlson noted that the comments he made regarding Russia were mostly tongue-in-cheek, and he remains “America First” all the way.
“Before we go, earlier in the show I noted, I was rooting for Russia in the contest between Russia and Ukraine,” Carlson said. “Of course I’m joking, I’m only rooting for America.”
Even Fox News is allowing sentiments in favor of removing Carlson from their network on their airwaves:
Fox Guest: "The core question is why the hell does Tucker Carlson still have a job here in the first place? This is someone said white supremacy is a hoax. Why does Fox still allow him to be here in the first place?"

Carlson has escaped controversies before when the Left has come to destroy his career, and he will have to weather the storm yet again. In an age of extreme suppression from the left-wing thought police, free speech can have severe penalties.
San Francisco Anti-Big Tech Free Speech Rally Attacked by ANTIFA Mob
One man was seriously injured.
Left wing thugs viciously beat at least one pro-free speech demonstrator at an impromptu rally in San Francisco’s United Nations plaza.
Conservatives had rallied in defense of free speech against the tyranny of Big Tech platforms that are quartered in the city, most notably Twitter. The demonstration occurred in response to some of the most severe censorship in American history from social media companies in recent days, hiding evidence of corruption and shady foreign business deals on the part of Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son.

Philip Anderson, the man who organized the rally, was seriously injured in the assault, which occurred when he crossed a barricade shielding patriotic demonstrators from furious leftists. He lost at least one tooth from a sucker punch.
The screaming leftists who surrounded Anderson chanted racial slurs at the Trump supporter, who is black.

A photographer with the AP described a leftist mob of “hundreds” “attacking” the free speech rally, entirely disrupting the event. Political protests are rare in San Francisco, where Silicon Valley-style neoliberal authoritarians dominate nearly every facet of everyday life.
The left doesn’t want to respect the First Amendment rights of those that oppose it. It’ll settle for nothing less than political domination, and will gladly use violence in pursuit of such ends.
The pro-free speech demonstrators don’t appear to have been deterred, and are said to have been preparing another free speech rally outside the headquarters of Twitter itself.
Upon seeing Anderson’s injuries, supporters have pitched in more than $6,000 for medical expenses needed from the cheap shot assault. Donate here.
