Photo: Screenshot via Fox News On Thursday night, Tucker Carlson, his brow furrowed in a perfect imitation of a human facial expression, devoted a segment to the beloved children’s Christmas special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and the possibility that some liberals found Rudolph to be “problematic.” Joined by libertarian YouTuber Dave Rubin, Carlson investigated a short video that HuffPost had made collecting and displaying a handful of joking tweets about Rudolph being politically regressive. “Reassure me,” Carlson said to Rubin, “this is real.” It was real, Rubin confirmed, and worse, HuffPost was “trying to take” Rudolph “away from you.” At the risk of giving away the game: HuffPost has no desire to take Rudolph away from viewers of Fox News; it created a video composed of other people’s tweets and gave it a sensational angle because it thought people might watch the video, increasing its reach on social … [Read more...] about Why Is Tucker Carlson Mad About Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer?

close Video Tucker: There's no value more American than free speech Liberals working to crack down on the First Amendment, ban speech they don't like. It's hard to think of an ideal more American than the freedom of speech. When people say our soldiers fight and die for our values, what they mean is our freedom to say what we think is true. That's our birthright. It's the most important thing we have, that we have ever had. And so for generations, there was a bipartisan consensus about this. In fact, liberals were among the most stalwart defenders of the First Amendment and good for them. But then the left took control of this country's institutions. Liberals became the establishment they had one opposed, and suddenly free speech seemed like a challenge to the highly profitable existing order, the one they were getting so rich from.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson chided Washington “neo-cons” on Monday for their condemnation of President Trump’s decision to pull out of northern Syria. WATCH:“We’d love to tell you it’s just the lefty hacks on CNN demanding that we stay in Syria forever, but unfortunately it was not– not even close. A ton of republicans on capitol Hill made exactly the same point,” Tucker said. Among those Republicans that Tucker called out were Sen. Majority leader Mitch McConnell, former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsay Graham, Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney and Nebraska Republican Sen. Ben Sasse. “All of them seem far angrier about the prospect of leaving Syria than they ever do about illegal immigration or Americans dying of fentanyl overdoses,” Tucker claimed.

Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Canadian hockey commentator Don Cherry said he stands by the comments that got him fired from Sportsnet’s “Hockey Night in Canada.”Cherry said over the weekend during his “Coach’s Corner” segment, “You people that come here, whatever it is, you love our way of life, you love our milk and honey. At least you could pay a couple of bucks for a poppy. … These guys paid for your way of life, the life you enjoy in Canada. These guys paid the biggest price.” The former NHL coach advised if he had another chance he would have used “everybody” instead of “you people.” “The one thing that got me was ‘You people,'” Cherry explained to host Tucker Carlson. “I suppose if I had it to do over again, I would have said ‘everybody,’ but you people are the people that they listen to.” He continued, “If … [Read more...] about Don Cherry: I ‘Stand By’ What I Said, But ‘Should Have Said Everybody’ Instead of ‘You People’
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson spoke frankly on Monday about demographic change in the United States. “Now, before you start calling anyone bigoted…”WATCH: “A recent piece in National Geographic tells you a lot about demographics in America, and about how bewilderingly fast they’re changing without any real public debate on the subject,” The Daily Caller co-founder said. “The magazine profiles the small coal mining town of Hazleton, Pennsylvania. In the year 2000, Hazleton’s population was 2 percent Hispanic. Just 16 years later, Hazleton is majority Hispanic. That’s a lot of change. People who grew up in Hazleton return to find out they can’t communicate with the people who now live there. And that’s bewildering for people. That’s happening all over the country. No nation, no society has ever changed this much, this fast.” (RELATED: ‘Why Don’t We Get … [Read more...] about Tucker: Demographics In America Are Changing ‘Bewilderingly Fast’ — ‘Without Any Real Public Debate On The Subject’
