Tucker Carlson is Targeted by Left-Wing Cancel Culture for Telling the Truth about Russia and Syria

They want to destroy Carlson for telling it like it is.

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.

The full clip can be seen in its full context here:

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.

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:

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.

Prominent Leftists Sign Letter Deriding Cancel Culture, Now That It is Starting to Affect Them!

They didn’t care much until the mob came for their freedom.

A group of prominent leftist authors, academics, journalists, policy makers and lobbyists have signed onto a letter begging the left-wing mob to stop its relentless assault on freedom of expression.

The letter, which has been published by Harper’s Magazine, was signed by 150 people including Steven Pinker, Fareed Zakaria, Noam Chomsky, J.K. Rowling, David Frum, Margaret Atwood, and Salman Rushdie. It pleads with the mob to stop their common practice of destroying anyone with whom they disagree.

“Our cultural institutions are facing a moment of trial. Powerful protests for racial and social justice are leading to overdue demands for police reform, along with wider calls for greater equality and inclusion across our society, not least in higher education, journalism, philanthropy, and the arts,” the letter reads, showing that the leftists continue to pay lip service to the overall aims of the marxist mob.

However, the authors complain about an “intensified a new set of moral attitudes and political commitments that tend to weaken our norms of open debate and toleration of differences in favor of ideological conformity.”

“The forces of illiberalism are gaining strength throughout the world and have a powerful ally in Donald Trump, who represents a real threat to democracy. But resistance must not be allowed to harden into its own brand of dogma or coercion—which right-wing demagogues are already exploiting. The democratic inclusion we want can be achieved only if we speak out against the intolerant climate that has set in on all sides,” they wrote.

The authors claim that the Left is becoming like the Right in its hostility against the marketplace of ideas. They wrote that “censoriousness is also spreading more widely in our culture: an intolerance of opposing views, a vogue for public shaming and ostracism, and the tendency to dissolve complex policy issues in a blinding moral certainty.”

“More troubling still, institutional leaders, in a spirit of panicked damage control, are delivering hasty and disproportionate punishments instead of considered reforms. Editors are fired for running controversial pieces; books are withdrawn for alleged inauthenticity; journalists are barred from writing on certain topics; professors are investigated for quoting works of literature in class; a researcher is fired for circulating a peer-reviewed academic study; and the heads of organizations are ousted for what are sometimes just clumsy mistakes,” they wrote.

“Whatever the arguments around each particular incident, the result has been to steadily narrow the boundaries of what can be said without the threat of reprisal. We are already paying the price in greater risk aversion among writers, artists, and journalists who fear for their livelihoods if they depart from the consensus, or even lack sufficient zeal in agreement,” they added.

The authors concluded their letter with a call for the mob to respect liberal values and reject witch hunting meant to quell free speech.

“We need to preserve the possibility of good-faith disagreement without dire professional consequences. If we won’t defend the very thing on which our work depends, we shouldn’t expect the public or the state to defend it for us,” they wrote.

However, these leftists are too little too late with their effort because the mob has grown too powerful. Most of these individuals were silent when their political opposition was being targeted by the mob. Because they lacked the courage to stand up for freedom when it could have mattered, they have the well-earned misfortune of being cannibalized by the mob as well.
