Fox News host Tucker Carlson uses racist, homophobic language in second wave of damaging audio

Source: Washington Post

A day after releasing audio of Tucker Carlson making numerous misogynist remarks, Media Matters for America published a new video with clips of the Fox News host using racist and homophobic language to describe Iraqi people, African Americans, gay people and immigrants while speaking on a radio program between 2006 and 2011, according to a report published Tuesday by the nonprofit.

The self-described watchdog of “conservative misinformation in the U.S. media” published the audio from Carlson’s appearances on a Tampa-based radio program, the “Bubba the Love Sponge Show,” just 25 hours after releasing similar recordings in which he’s heard flippantly using sexist language to express his views on child rape, rape shield laws, underage marriage and other sensitive topics.

The new audio highlights about a dozen instances of Carlson using racist language on the “shock jock” show, which he apparently called into for about an hour per week. In 2008, Carlson lamented that “everyone’s embarrassed to be a white man,” before stating that white men deserve credit for “creating civilization and stuff.”

In another instance, Carlson is heard saying that Iraq is a “crappy place filled with a bunch of, you know, semiliterate primitive monkeys,” adding, “That’s why it wasn’t worth invading.” That follows a 2006 segment on the show in which Carlson said he had “zero sympathy” for Iraqi people and their culture because they “don’t use toilet paper or forks.”

2. Yeah, but does FOXNews care? This is their daily message to their geriatric and deplorable audience.

And their Dear Leader is a pedophiliac pervert, so the prior clips about child rape won't bother them either.

5. If you want to be a serious political commentator

One thing you should never do is appear on a show called "Bubba the Love Sponge". I can't see Rachel Maddow appearing on such a show.

8. Stop it! The right-wingers can only get so hard!

An erection lasting more than four hours requires the attention of a doctor.

13. White men deserve credit for "creating civilization and stuff."

The ancient Egyptians were not "white." The Africans who built cities in Meroe and Kush when Tucker's ancestors were living in huts were not white. The Babylonians, Sumerians, and Chinese were not white. Neither were the Indians of Mohenjo-Daro.

What an ignorant piece of shit.

16. When will Fox News just go all in? Because I can see the day

when they just say "fuck it", and let their ugly miserable half-cocked hosts say whatever they want. Go all white supremacist all the time. ie...use this kind of language in broad daylight, today, on their shows. You know they'd just love to. And there'd be a small, but very vocal and very loyal army of viewers that would just love this, and get them all pumped for the second civil war.

What do they have to lose? Especially if they are on the brink of their wingnut stars like Hannity, Carlson, and probably others, caught up in Muellers web. Who's going to shut them down? Trump will make sure, even if by executive order, to keep them running.
