It’s all hands on deck for the left in their effort to fire Tucker Carlson.
They are calling in the big guns.
And how Barack Obama is helping to try and fire Tucker Carlson will leave you red with rage.
The liberal backlash to Carlson’s decade-old comments on a radio show is building.
Leftists organized sponsor boycotts and they are having an effect.
CNN’s Brian Steinberg reported that Monday night’s broadcast of ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight,’ “featured just 4 ad breaks and very few big national commercials, relying instead on direct-response ads and sundry promos for other Fox News programs…”
Liberals saw that as a sign their plan to silence Carlson was gaining momentum, so they launched phase two.
Former Obama administration staffers Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett and Tommy Vietor, who are the hosts of the wildly popular ‘Pod Save America’ podcast, promoted a Media Matters protest outside of Fox News’ Manhattan headquarters to ramp up the pressure on the network to fire Carlson.
“They’re having a protest outside of Fox News headquarters on Wednesday at 11 a.m. in New York because Fox is having an emergency meeting with their advertisers,” Vietor told the audience.
“So if you want to send a message, and you want people to actually care there, let the advertisers know because that’s the only reason the Bill O’Reillys and the Laura [Ingrahams] and the other people actually get punished.”
“And the Glenn Becks too. It’s the only thing that’s worked,” Lovett chimed in.
“Tucker Carlson is their most popular host in their most popular time slot,” Favreau added. “That is Fox News.”
Vietor, Favreau, and Lovett speak for the Obama world.
The professional left is now getting in on the act of trying to shut down Carlson’s show.
If they succeed in claiming his scalp, they will not stop with Carlson.
Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Judge Jeanine Pirro will be the next targets.
The left’s goal is not to eliminate “hate” from the airwaves.
Their objective is to cleanse the media of any opposition to their agenda.
And they know corporate America’s weak spot.
Companies now look to advertising to showcase their “values.”
This means promoting “diversity,” “tolerance,” and being “open and welcome.”
Companies think if they promote these “values,” leftist mobs won’t target them.
So when the Democrats identify a conservative they want to shut-up, their go-to move is to target their sponsors.
The dirty secret behind these “boycotts” is that the people threatening to “boycott” the company don’t actually purchase the product in question.
But the left knows these companies monitor their social media accounts and the last thing they want is a news story about how twitter “exploded” over a company sponsoring a conservative show.
And these stories do get published as part of the scheme.
The so-called “journalists” who write these pieces are themselves leftist ideologues colluding with liberal activists to censor their political enemies.
So the left has ramped up their scheme to kick Tucker Carlson off the air by now involving Obama’s former staffers.
