The Democrats who have been going after Fox News Host Tucker Carlson for more than a decade may have hit gold.
This may be the ammunition they have sought, and needed, to finally get Fox News to take the conservative host off of television.
Media Matters For America, a far left donation machine for Democrat candidates and causes, uncovered old audio clips of Carlson on Bubba The Love Sponge’s radio show and some of them are indeed disturbing, though certainly out-of-context.
“Look, just to make it absolutely clear. I am not defending underage marriage at all. I just don’t think it’s the same thing exactly as pulling a child from a bus stop and sexually assaulting that child,” Carlson said of a minor marrying an adult.
“Yeah, it’s — you know what it is? It’s much more planned out and plotted,” one of the hosts shots back at Carlson.
“Yeah, it should be almost — you almost should put a premeditation,” Bubba The Love Sponge said, drawing the ire of Carlson.
“Wait, wait! Hold on a second. The rapist, in this case, has made a lifelong commitment to live and take care of the person, so it is a little different. I mean, let’s me honest about it,” Carlson said.
“I got myself in a position that seem like I’m defending it, because I am against that,” Carlson explained by MMFA took it out of context.
The far left website went out to take several other radio appearances out of context and described them as follows.
After Bubba the Love Sponge described underage girls at Carlson’s daughter’s boarding school experimenting sexually with each other, Carlson said, “If it weren’t my daughter I would love that scenario.”
Carlson said criminal charges against Warren Jeffs are “bullshit” because “arranging a marriage between a 16-year-old and a 27-year-old is not the same as pulling a stranger off the street and raping her.”
Carlson: If I made the laws, “Michael Vick would have been executed and Warren Jeffs would be out on the street.”
Carlson: A teacher who molested a 13-year-old took pressure off the victim’s female classmates because they wouldn’t have to sleep with him.
Carlson: Former President Bill Clinton should get a divorce and “take up plural marriage or something with a bunch of teenagers in a foreign country.”
Here is the MMFA video compilation (NSFW Warning):
Liberals immediately pounced, as one might expect. But conservatives are standing with Carlson…
UPDATE: If Media Matters thought Tucker was going to knuckle under to this massive attack, they were gravely mistaken, as he released a statement basically saying “meh”…
What do you think? Will Tucker lose his FoxNews job over this?
