Chuck Schumer tried to cancel Tucker Carlson.
That turned out to be a bad idea.
And that’s because Tucker Carlson issued Chuck Schumer this challenge that made Schumer cry uncle.
Democrats and their stenographers in the corporate media sit around waiting for mass shootings because it allows them to go on offense on unpopular parts of their agenda.
Liberals spring into action as soon as a mass shooting occurs to hammer Republicans about gun control in an attempt to bully weak RINOs into gutting the Second Amendment.
But after years of that tactic failing Democrats are now seizing on tragedies to push for mass censorship of conservatives.
That’s exactly what happened after a tragedy in Buffalo when a gunman allegedly murdered ten innocents.
The madman posted a 181-page manifesto online that mentioned the “Great Replacement” – a conspiracy theory which holds Jewish elites promote mass migration into America to replace white people.
Even though the shooter attacked Fox News for hiring so many Jews and never mentioned Tucker Carlson once, the corporate media and Democrats pounced and demanded Fox News fire Carlson because Carlson repeatedly warned viewers that Democrats promote lax border policies that allow for mass illegal immigration into the U.S. with the hopes of creating millions of new Democrat voters with an amnesty bill.
Chuck Schumer delivered a firehose of falsehoods in a speech on the Senate floor falsely claiming that Tucker Carlson promoted the Great Replacement Theory.
Tucker Carlson has spewed rhetoric that echoes replacement theory at least 400 times on his show since 2016.
This is a poison being spread by one of the largest news organizations in America, Fox News.
They need to stop spreading dangerous racist lies and conspiracy theories. pic.twitter.com/XVCWv98SRl

And in a stunning attack on the free press and constitutional norms, Schumer also dispatched a letter to top Fox News executives demanding the network silence Carlson.
The Senate majority leader demanding a news organization fire an anchor is an implied threat of potential government retaliation and a chilling assault on the First Amendment protection of freedom of the press.
But it turns out that like all bullies, Chuck Schumer backs down when someone stands up to them.
Tucker Carlson invited Chuck Schumer on his show to debate Schumer’s allegations but Schumer backed down.
Schumer waved the white flag of surrender on social media writing:
@TuckerCarlson invited me on his show tonight to debate the letter I sent to @FoxNews. I’m declining. Tucker Carlson needs to stop promoting the racist, dangerous ‘Replacement Theory’.
Tucker Carlson and Fox News promote dangerous, racist, white supremacist lies and conspiracy theories. That’s cowardly. Amplifying racist lies and propaganda is simply not debatable. It should have no place in America.
