Early Monday morning, news broke that the polarizing television personality Tucker Carlson was out at Fox. The announcement was abrupt and shocking to many. When the highest-rated television personality is sent packing, the world takes notice.
Tucker Carlson, whether you like him or not, had ratings that any broadcast station would salivate over. Reruns of his show drew higher viewership than any other rival show competing in the same space. To relate his stature to sports, Tucker leaving Fox is a lot like when Michael Jordan left the Chicago Bulls in the mid-1990s.
At the time of Jordan’s departure, his Chicago Bulls were fresh off three consecutive world championships in the National Basketball Association [NBA]. Why the parallel narratives? In simplest terms, it depicts how much of a head-scratcher Carlson’s exit is.
Currently, there is no smoking gun as to the cause of the split between the popular tv personality and the broadcast company. However, the rumour mill is in overdrive and the theories are plentiful.
One side states that Carlson uses his platform to incite violence. A large number of his views lack political correctness; he says what many Americans would like to but don’t due to fear of retribution. This is partly what made him so popular.
Many of his beliefs are throwbacks to an era long forgotten in the US. He is an isolationist at heart, often calling on government officials to tighten entry into America. He supports the Second Amendment, balks at calls for gun control, slings arrows at the LGBTQ movement, and has a concealed carry permit in the District of Columbia.
In short, Carlson is the poster child for the anti-woke. Circulating far-right ideas into mainstream politics and discourse is the man’s M.O., and though no doubt polarizing, it doesn’t make him a criminal.
Not surprisingly, individuals with left-leaning attitudes view Carlson as dangerous. As I write this, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, known by her initials AOC, took to social media and posted a video. The gist is that de-platforming personalities like Mr. Carlson are necessary.
An excerpt of her cringe-worthy video is below:
“Tucker Carlson is out at Fox News. Couldn’t have happened to a better guy. What I will say though is while I’m very glad that the person who is arguably responsible for driving the most amount of death threats, violent threats, not just to my office but to plenty of people across the country – I also kind of feel like I’m waiting for the cutscene at the end of a Marvel movie… [laughs]… de-platforming works and it is important. Good things can happen”.
AOC’s comments reek of narcissism. The left continues to pursue its never-ending campaign to destroy the very tenets that make America, America. Dare think differently than the masses, and expect to be doxxed and de-platformed within hours. The exact same thing happened to former President Donald J. Trump and the maligned braintrust behind the alternative media outlet InfoWars, Alex Jones.
When asked what Fox Media will do next, a statement was released that Carlson’s 8pm EST primetime slot will be immediately filled with a rotation of personalities until the selection of a permanent host.
There are those who assert Carlson’s departure from Fox News as problematic. To this camp, his termination is yet another dangerous precedent in an increasingly fascist America where free speech is dying.
Furthermore, there is a theory that postulates the real reason Fox News sent the San Francisco-born Carlson packing was due to his blatant anti-vaccine views. As recently as last Friday, Carlson berated TV networks for pushing a deadly and ineffective vaccine to please their Pharma advertisers.
Carlson’s monologue broke the cardinal rule in the television racket; never tell the truth about Big Pharma advertisers who control TV news content. The timing of his firing certainly leads one to question what drove Fox to terminate the Michael Jordan of Broadcast journalism at the peak of his powers.
MEGYN KELLY BLASTS THE TRANS MOVEMENT
Former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly did her part to quell the all-encompassing Trans movement. In a video posted over the weekend, Kelly took direct aim at Trans TikTok personality Dylan Mulvaney.
She laced the trans woman for failing to understand what being a woman truly means. Furthermore, her monologue took specific aim at the trans movement itself.
A few highlights of her Meryl Streep-like performance below:
“I’m done engaging in this fiction. I’m not willing to abandon truth in the name of sparing feelings. Getting a surgeon to cut a hole down there doesn’t make you a woman. You have no idea what the average woman has been through throughout the course of her life. At best, you’re a Trans Woman. You’re really a biological man who has some gender confusion issues. It doesn’t matter how many surgeries, how many hormones, I’m done engaging in this fiction.”
Conservatives have seen enough and are no longer standing pat while Christian values evaporate into thin air. Their main issue is when impressionable minds are programmed to think a certain way about the movement. Whether or not you agree is your right as a sovereign American.

I think he got blamed for the $787,000,000 check that Rupert Murdock had to write to Dominion Voting Systems.
