His viewers won't like that. It's why they tune in.

Wasn't hateful bigotry part of the job description?
 
2020-07-13 3:38:51 PM  
I mean, Carlson has said things on his show that fundamentally agree with the comments this douche is getting fired over, just avoiding actually using the N-word.

Which, in the end, doesn't make them any more acceptable for broadcast.

If Tucker Carlson has a writer, what does Tucker Carlson "do" exactly?
 
2020-07-13 5:01:21 PM  
If there's a Nazi at the table and 10 other people sitting there talking to him, you got a table with 11 Nazis.

Is he going to apologize for saying Democrats want to abolish suburbs?

Gonna guess this shiatabag's resume was just crayoned n-bombs and swastikas, which probably netted him at least an extra 40K and maybe even a handy from Rupert himself.

who knew  you needed a writer to come up with stupid shiat for Tucker to say?
 
2020-07-13 5:27:36 PM  
Apparently, this writer used to be part of a relatively small community I'm in. He left some time ago, and people did some digging on his most recent posts after this whole news broke. One was complaining that people were misinterpreting Tucker's "humorous" segment about the metric system... a section he presumably, anonymously wrote! He was also described as a "non-racist conservative" by another asshole who is probably regretting those words about now

Small world. Douchebags are everywhere
 
2020-07-13 5:27:53 PM  
Tucker could have just NOT READ the stuff that was racist...He CHOSE to keep reading it..
He's just as culpable..This is a, "I was just following orders" excuse re-packaged to throw
this other a-hole under the bus..

Carlson gives a BS apology.

Are we taking bets on hoe many times he uses "the left" in his apology?

"Blake Neff"

I wonder what his fraternity nickname was because Blake Neff is about as WASP-ish as it gets.
 
2020-07-13 5:29:53 PM  
I can't wait for Tucker to explain how his head writer's racism is antifa's fault.
 
2020-07-13 5:30:02 PM  
Wait, so Carlson didn't write that bit about rape-y pandas? I'm so confused right now.
 
2020-07-13 5:30:21 PM  
I actually want to throw him in swanson's frozen dinner and preserve him for him for a hundred years. See, how the cultural shock would hold him up for survival of the "new world".

Or you've got the prosecutor, judge and jury. Or agents trying to frame him. Or his family who feel ashamed. Or many other situations. Things aren't always that easy, personal motives are complex. If they cheer him on, you -and the many others who've said it before - have a point, though.
 
2020-07-13 5:35:14 PM  
What angle will Tucker go with?

A) It was Hillary's fault, actually.

B) He was only joking.

C) In coming after my head writer, they're actually coming after you.

"I, like many of you, was surprised1 at the revelations that a former writer2 of my program has engaged in hatespeech online."3

1- Gives cover to the rest of his audience that wasn't surprised (notice it says many not most)
2- implies that the writer was long gone before he was discovered so the audience that isn't onboard can handwave it away
3- online and not on my show

Be "Rupert Murdoch's biatch" for an hour each day.  That is a direct quote from him, btw.  He may not believe the stuff he says, he just say it because there is a market for it.

What was the writer's Fark handle?
 
2020-07-13 5:36:39 PM  
Bawww! I'm so sad and distraught that Democrats keep calling Republicans racist & sexist just because they keep turning out to be exactly that. It's unfair!

Moreover, black people & liberals must be Marxists because one of them said she was.

So why the fark is farker Carlson there? Is he even more useless than I assumed? Didn't think that was possible.

Anyone know what the guy actually said?  I'm wondering exactly how awful it had to be to get fired by Fox for rhetoric.  I would've imagined that feat to be nearly impossible

He didn't apologize and he is not going to. He will probably blame it on "cancel culture".

Just this week, the writer, Blake Neff, responded to a thread started by another user in 2018 with the subject line, "Would u let a JET BLACK congo n****er do lasik eye surgery on u for 50% off?" Neff wrote, "I wouldn't get LASIK from an Asian for free, so no."

Hi, I'm Tucker Carlson. As some of you fine, red-blooded American patriots have noticed, my lead writer said some slightly controversial statements that the libfart left may frown upon. Let me be clear, fark their feelings. They're just snowflakes who don't like it when zealous Christian men and our subordinate wives drop racial slurs in casual conversation. What George Soros and Hillary Clinton are trying to do is suppress the free speech of all Americans, but especially the free speech that reveals just how bigoted we all are. It's because of morally superior Republicans like Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly that we exist as a nation. Without Republican guidance from strong leaders like Sean Hannity we would all be forced to live in a socialist hellscape where anybody can get healthcare and minorities are treated with respect, dignity, and equality to white heterosexual men. I, for one, will not allow the radical left to plunge our country into such a reprehensible state and will do everything in my power to hire a new lead writer who is more in line with our American values. I hope you all watching at home will help me welcome your dipshiat coworker who takes much longer lunch breaks than you do and comes into the breakroom reeking of cigarette smoke, and who rambles incoherently about the forwarded message chain detailing how Hillary Clinton killed Dale Earnhardt Jr. as our new lead writer. Only together can we begin the process of healing. Good night and god bless, America. And remember, equal rights for others means less rights for you. Vote Republican. Love, Tucker Carlson

Neff used a pseudonym.  I am guessing "Tucker Carlson"?

Corvus: He didn't apologize and he is not going to. He will probably blame it on "cancel culture".


He's also going to continue to deny the prevalence of racism in America, especially the kind his show has been relentlessly pushing since its inception.

"Our show doesn't condone this"
"He kept these views on his own time and out of our show"
"This was a bad apple"

etc etc

"His username on the forum, CharlesXII, is a reference to Charles XII of Sweden, a king known for his military victories and who abstained from sex and alcohol. Neff...has repeatedly disclosed...that he rarely drinks and The Post story said he rarely dates."

I am so very surprised!

He was fired because he is supposed to save all of his material for the show's script.

Carlson's credible exclusively with cretins, coonts, and conservatives.
