Ep. 215 - The Fake Outrage Brigade Comes For Tucker Carlson

Media Matters said it unearthed clips of Tucker Carlson calling into the Bubba the Love Sponge radio show from 2006 to 2011

Rather than express the usual ritual contrition, how about this: I'm on television every weeknight live for an hour.

Instead of apologizing or discussing his comments, Carlson released a statement inviting critics and fans alike to check out his Fox News evening program if they want to "know what I think".

The Fox News anchor has invited "anyone who disagrees" with his views to come on his show.

The show featured a strong monologue by the host, who responded on TV for the first time to the revelation by liberal advocacy group Media Matters of troublesome remarks Carlson made years ago on a radio talk show about celebrities as well as a convicted cult leader who was known to have organized marriages between his adult male followers and underage girls.

CARLSON: Wait, wait! Hold on a second. Jeffs was on the FBI's most wanted fugitives list and arrested in 2006.

"This is just the tip of the iceberg", Berman said, referring to Carlson's dismissive thoughts on statutory rape. I mean, in other words, if you are grievously injured by another person, it's not your fault.

"There are lots of things you have to play along with in life, and I understand society demands compromises", Carlson told the future founder of the Proud Boys gang, Gavin McInnes, in an interview, adding: "But there is a limit beyond which I can't pretend anymore".

Tucker Carlson speaks onstage during Politicon 2018 at Los Angeles Convention Center

CO-HOST: Yeah, that's what Warren Jeffs' in prison for. You're not going to hurt her feelings.

Tucker Carlson speaks during a debate at Politicon in Los Angeles, California on Saturday, October 20, 2018. Jeffs, Carlson said, was someone with "a different lifestyle that people find creepy".

He's not accused of touching anybody; he is accused of facilitating a marriage between a 16-year-old girl and a 27-year-old man. What do you mean in accessory?

Carlson called lifting Don't Ask, Don't Tell, the policy that banned LGB military service members from being open about their sexuality, a "sideshow issue" and claimed to be "disgusted" by gender neutral restrooms at the Democratic National Convention in 2016.

Tucker Carlson speaks during Politicon 2018 at Los Angeles Convention Center on October 21, 2018. Vick, a former National Football League quarterback, was sentenced to 23 months in 2007 for dogfighting. In the end, you get fired, you lose your job.

In other segments, Carlson called for the elimination of rape shield laws, which are meant to protect the identities and histories of victims of sex crimes and engaged in a conversation about young girls and their sexual behavior. Carlson was a regular on Bubba's show back then.

He said that "what gets women going is arguing with them" about politics, especially feminism.
