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?

Trump's hacked voicemails reveal hypocrisy of media

On December 12, 2015, a day after “declaring war” on Donald Trump after he announced plans to ban all Muslims from entering the U.S., members of Anonymous, the loose group of hackers and activists, hacked into Trump’s voicemail and took his website offline for around an hour.
Trump is now attacked and reviled by the media for his stance on issues such as illegal immigrants and Muslim refugees, but his voicemails show that the same media were singing his praises in 2012.
Ministry of Truth
Matt Broomfield reports for the (UK) Independent, March 5, 2016, that Trump’s hacked voicemail messages from 2012 “show leading figures in the US media showering him with praise, compliments, and thanks for his financial support.” Those leading figures include MSNBC news anchors Joe Scarborough, Mike Brzezinski, and Tamron Hall.
Scarborough and Brzezinski had cross-examined Trump on several occasions during the Republican primary campaign. Both can be heard in the voicemails profusely thanking Trump for his donation to a charity event:

  • Scarborough says: “We are so, so grateful for everything, Donald, and we just want to call you and tell you how much it means to us.”
  • Brzezinski also thanks Trump for his donation, saying, “You must be, like, on your jet or something. We’d love to talk to you.”

A woman identifying herself as “T Hall”, believed to be MSNBC’s Tamron Hall, can be heard on the recording saying she was going to use Trump’s discount in a luxury clothing store. She says: “I celebrated by going to Gucci, and I’m going to use your discount, because there’s a green dress that’s like $3,000, and I need a discount bigger than . . . my discount.”
Reacting to the hacked voicemails, Scarborough sarcastically confirmed the authenticity of the messages in which he can be heard speaking. He writes: “Oh my God. I just read the transcripts! Trump must have contributed to a children’s charity. Scandalous!!!! Should Mika and I now apologize for raising money for children’s charities from rich people?”
Barack Obama’s aide David Axelrod can also be heard thanking Trump for donating to his epilepsy charity. Other celebrities who can be heard speaking in a friendly, personal manner to Trump include American football star Tom Brady and boxing promoter Don King.
