The left tried for years to cancel Tucker Carlson.
Carlson’s success drives liberals crazy.
Now CNN called Tucker Carlson these four words to try and get him taken off the air.
CNN’s brass reacted to tanking ratings thanks to Donald Trump leaving office by trying to create a new villain.
Network President Jeff Zucker decided that Tucker Carlson would be cast as the main antagonist in CNN’s new political narrative.
CNN hosts waged a sustained smear campaign against Carlson, treating him as the leader of the Republican Party.
The latest broadside came from CNN’s chief performance artist Jim Acosta.
With Trump out of office, CNN has no use for Acosta’s play-acting in the White House press briefing room so Zucker shunted Acosta off to a lowly weekend anchor position.
During his latest broadcast, Acosta followed Zucker’s marching orders and attacked Carlson and other Fox News hosts for their reaction to Joe Biden lying about America being a racist nation in the wake of Derek Chauvin’s guilty verdict in the death of George Floyd.
Acosta first played a clip of Laura Ingraham blasting Joe Biden for telling “The Big Lie” that America is a systemically racist nation where police hunt black people.
Then Acosta pivoted to attacking Carlson.
“But let’s be real,” Acosta ranted. “How can you hear that and doubt what’s going on? But it’s not just Laura. How about Tucker Carlson who in the wake of the Derek Chauvin verdict showed us all what’s under the hood?”
In the clip Acosta played, Carlson remarked that the jury in the Chauvin case acted out of fear of riots that might break out in the wake of an acquittal.
Carlson stated that the jury’s message was “please don’t hurt us.”
The threats of riots hovered over the trial which Carlson claimed made a conviction the only possible outcome.
“Everyone understood perfectly well the consequences of an acquittal in this case,” Carlson added. “After nearly a year of burning and looting and murder by BLM, that was never in doubt.”
Acosta smeared Carlson for his comments, calling him the “chief white power correspondent.”
“But let’s be real,” said Acosta. “Tucker Carlson’s anger wasn’t about the actions of a police officer who murdered a man but about the guilty verdict. Or as Carlson, Fox’s chief white power correspondent described the decision, ‘please don’t hurt us,’” Acosta added.
But Carlson was right.
An alternate juror in the Chauvin case later told the media that while she believed Chauvin was guilty on the merits of the case, she was scared that mobs would gather at her home.
Acosta pushed the lie that Carlson is a racist to further the effort by many on the left to pressure advertisers to drop Carlson to force Fox to fire Carlson in order to maintain financial viability.
