Hypocritical left call for boycott of Tucker Carlson, ignore racist/homophobic comments by lefty pundits

Of course proggies are calling for a boycott of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson but they said absolutely NOTHING about Don Lemon’s blatantly racist comments or MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski homophobic slurs to attack Mike Pompeo.

So typical of their double standards.

From MSN: At least 18 advertisers have now dropped “Tucker Carlson Tonight” after the Fox News host said in a show last Thursday that immigrants to the United States made the country “poorer” and “dirtier.”

As of Wednesday morning, Takeda Pharmaceutical Company, CareerBuilder, TD Ameritrade, Just For Men, United Explorer credit card, ScotteVest, Voya Financial, Zenni Optical, Pacific Life, Indeed, Bowflex, SmileDirectClub, NerdWallet, Minted, Ancestry.com, IHOP, Jaguar and SodaStream had all told TheWrap or stated publicly that they plan to suspend advertising on the program.

“SodaStream has asked Fox to remove us from the time slot,” the company said in a tweet Wednesday.
A spokesman for Takeda Pharmaceutical Company told TheWrap in a statement: “We have pulled our advertising off of Tucker Carlson’s show.”

On Monday, Carlson addressed the growing boycott campaign against his sponsors over his on-air remarks about immigration, telling viewers that he would not be intimidated.

“You’ve seen it a million times, it happens all the time,” he said. “The enforcers scream ‘racist’ on Twitter, until everyone gets intimidated and changes the subject to the Russia investigation or some other distraction. It’s a tactic, a well worn one. And it won’t work with the show, we’re not intimidated. We plan to say what’s true until the last day.

The pressure, however, has only grown with each defection, as liberal pressure groups like Media Matters for America and Sleeping Giants have kept up the pressure on Twitter. Activists like Jordan Uhl and Judd Legum posted real-time updates to their massive followings of companies whose ads appeared on Monday night’s show.

“We cannot and will not allow voices like Tucker Carlson to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts from the likes of Moveon.org, Media Matters and Sleeping Giants,” a spokesperson for Fox News told TheWrap in a statement Tuesday afternoon. “Attempts were made last month to bully and terrorize Tucker and his family at their home. He is now once again being threatened via Twitter by far left activist groups with deeply political motives.

The statement continued: “While we do not advocate boycotts, these same groups never target other broadcasters and operate under a grossly hypocritical double standard given their intolerance to all opposing points of view.”
The flap began when Carlson remarked on Thursday night that immigrants have made the United States “poorer and dirtier and more divided.”

“As a company, we strongly disagree with Mr. Carlson’s statements. Our customer base and our workforce reflect the diversity of our great nation, something we take great pride in. We will not be advertising on Mr. Carlson’s show in the coming week as we reevaluate our relationship with his program.”

The boycott metastasized from there.

“We are actively working with our media buyers to confirm that SmileDirectClub is no longer running our ads around any political opinion shows,” the company told TheWrap on Monday.

Employment giant Indeed said Monday it has stopped advertising on Carlson’s show and has “no plans to advertise on this program in the future.”

Indeed responded in messages to several Twitter users that the company hadn’t run ads on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” for “over a month now.”

FYI proggies: How’d that call for boycott (driven by Media Hogg) of Laura Ingraham’s show work out?

When I think about it, why would we allow a seditious entity like this to openly exist in its present form? We used to have standards that had to be upheld or they lost their licenses. In truth we have The Odor operating in broad daylight in total opposition to our Government. In addition, we have internal coups afoot. They are becoming more obvious every day. It is the “media” that is keeping this from becoming widely known and understood. So, it is not enough to simply ignore them as passive participants. They are active participants. They are openly working… Read more »

In 2005 a court ruled that Pacific Life and its army of agents had committed securities fraud in the way they marketed its deferred annuities, basically caught lying through their teeth about a non-existent tax-deferred benefit. Moreover, having Pacific Life as a main advertiser doesn’t speak well for Tucker’s viewers since it implies they’ve been painted as suckers likely to invest in obscenely fee- and penalty-larded mutual funds and annuities.

While these networks will collect ad revenues, I don’t think they’re overly concerned about them. If no one advertised they’d be on the air anyway. How else are they going to control the propaganda? I don’t thin Fox is fundamentally any different from the others. They keep in up there to give the impression that there is some range of opinion. They too are their to limit the discussion. The stuff that Tucker talks about was common sense for any twelve-year old when I was growing up. Now it is presented like some profound philosophy or something. We all know… Read more »

Ha-Ha-Ha. No wonder the left wants gun control. They keep shooting themselves in the foot. Where do they think their revenue comes from? The left AND the RIGHT. So they’re going to pull all of their commercials that are seen and heard by MILLLLLIons of people every day. Likely half their clientele. Why the hell do these progressive leftists in company management use their companies as SJWs? If they want to do that stuff they should do it on their own time with their own money instead of jeopardizing the livelihood of the people that work for them, the very… Read more »

Losing the Big Pharma company as a sponsor is actually good. More companies will be more than willing to replace Takeda, and Big Pharma is everywhere in sponsoring the nightly newscasts.

The less of them, the better.

People forget that Tucker Carlson was mentored by the candidate who was Trump more than 25 years before, Pat Buchanan on the McLaughlin Group. Tucker is easily the best guy on Fox jews.

My Gawd. What will I do without IHOP? The worst restaurant I ever ate at is the one in Anaheim, next to Disneyland. I got stuck to the table. I couldn’t get a clean cup or utensil even in Spanish.
