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

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.


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.
