Tucker Carlson Rips Left-Wing ‘Rage Mobs’ After BLM Cancel Culturalists Add Him to the Growing List

Tucker Carlson Rips Left-Wing ‘Rage Mobs’ After BLM Cancel Culturalists Add Him to the Growing List

“At this point, we’re becoming North Korea. We now believe in bloodguilt. We punish people for the sins of their relatives. We don’t allow individuals to have private thoughts. We hurt anyone who disagrees with orthodoxy,” Carlson stated in a blistering rant against cancel culture mobs.

That Democrats will not hesitate to try and “cancel” people who have the audacity to disagree with them is not a new development. But the pace at which it is happening in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd should seriously alarm anyone who truly values diversity of thought and the free exchange of ideas.

The Free Speech Union is keeping a running list of people who have either been fired/forced to resign or who may be for daring to express criticism of the radical Black Lives Matter movement and/or their allies, or who have otherwise pushed back against established narratives. Here are just a few examples they cited, but make sure to check out the full thread, which they add to every day:

Professor Jacobson wrote a detailed post on what Cornell students are trying to do to Professor Collum and the backstory behind it, which you can read here.

Tucker Carlson, who is a frequent target of cancel culturalists like the left-wing provocateurs at Media Matters, found himself this week on the receiving end of yet another campaign to end his Fox News show by way of “rage mob” leftists who accused him of “racism” for pointing out some inconvenient truths Monday night about how Blacks Lives Matter and related organized social justice warrior mobs are motivated by the desire for absolute “power” and the intent to silence opposing voices in order to advance their radical agendas.

Here’s what Carlson said Tuesday in response:

Minutes after we said that, the mob came for us — irony of ironies. They’ve spent the last 24 hours trying to force this show off the air for good. They won’t succeed, thankfully. We work for one of the last brave companies in America. They’re not intimidated. We’re grateful for that. But the whole thing did get us thinking that we should be more specific about who this mob is, and what they’re doing. Who are the people trying to take over the country, cancel our rights, eliminate our centuries-long tradition of tolerance, yes tolerance, and free expression? And the truth is, we often don’t know their names. They’re mostly faceless political agitators who exist primarily online. They are trolls who thrive on cruelty. And yet suddenly they have immense power. Weak leaders now reflexively bow to their demands, no matter what those demands are.


“Who we are.” It’s a good question, actually. Who exactly are we? At this point, we’re becoming North Korea. We now believe in bloodguilt. We punish people for the sins of their relatives. We don’t allow individuals to have private thoughts. We hurt anyone who disagrees with orthodoxy. We demand that the innocent plead guilty to things we know they didn’t do, and then read their confessions in public, to prove they’ve been re-educated. And then we brag about doing it.

Obviously, something terrifying has descended on America. It’s easy to see what’s happened: terrible ideas suddenly have free reign. Why? Because no one pushed back. They’re met with supine weakness. You’ve seen it happen a thousand times — Some professional activist says something crazy and destructive because that’s what professional activists do, always. “Defund the police!” What’s changed, what’s brand new, is that no one in charge has the stones to disagree. So the rhetoric gets even crazier and more destructive — “Kill the police!” OK, what next?

Carlson has been in rare form lately. Make sure to watch the full segment below:

Unfortunately, Free Speech Union’s thread on recent victims of the left’s ideological purging is likely to grow. The only question remains is how long will our society continue to tolerate it or look the other way as long as it’s not them on the receiving end of a cancel notice?

Freedom of speech is not to protect the most favored, but the most repugnant…

    I’m not sure if it’s what you intended, but I disagree with the implication that the people listed in this article as victims of the cancel culture mobs are “the most repugnant.”

    On the contrary, they’re the sane, healthy ones who deserve our praise and support.

      Milhouse in reply to CorkyAgain. | June 10, 2020 at 11:43 pm

      Yes, but that’s not how their opponents see it. Those opponents need to be reminded that the purpose freedom of speech is specifically to protect repugnant speech.

Honestly, how many other cheeks does the right still have that they can turn?

As someone else said today, “a storm is coming”. And those on the left won’t like it when it gets here.

    In my platoon on Ft. Knox, many years ago, a staff sergeant named Davis was having a discussion with our platoon leader, Lt. Bolton. Bolton was arguing for passivity and a cautious approach (with regard to what I now forget), and said to Sgt. Davis that we should “turn the other cheek.”
    I will never forget Sgt. Davis’ reply: “Sir, Jesus Christ turned the other cheek and they nailed him to a fucking cross.”

I just wrote a nasty letter canceling my subscription Consumer Reports. They’ve been sold out for years bit the product information was useful.

I got an email from some woman bugh up in their chain; several paragraphs of groveling to the troublemakers. Then, I received their weekly email of links. Included was one about staying secure while “protesting”

Are there any non-blacks with spine left in this country?

    Take every racist justification from the days of Jim Crow and every saying..every law. Switch “white” for “Nigro, Negro, Colored, Black..whatever the redefined word was per generation” and that is today.

    Black Apartheid is now the rule of the land in public and private discourse. In South Africa, they could get away with it with the majority of the population being Black (but not indigenous) but this may be different. Rapid social change is in itself destabllizing. The snapback/rebound may be more dynamic.

And now you can’t visit without a half-page “Black Lives Matter” banner. One’s only recourse is to avoid Amazon–like there’s a comparable option.

    I have Alexa stuff for home automation. I like it. It works fine. But, my everyday ordering will be switched other sites.

Chef John got dragged into the fray. The Left is humorless.

I believe it was Tom Wolfe who famously said:

“Fascism is always descending on America but only ever lands in Europe.”

It was always true until now. Fascism has now become the status quo embraced by the entire establishment. There is no negotiating with fascists. They need to be purged from society.

There is a lot of anger here, and ragingly justified.

This is new age of lawlessness and a new age of fascism in the Un-United States.

It’s gotten so bad, even AG Barr-Boehner muttered something about it today, before crawling back to bed.

I agree, it is a good word, as evidenced by the visceral reaction it can cause in so many people. Thank you, your compliment means so much to me.

When people complain about George Floyd and demand to society the best response is to point out that blacks need stop being criminals If they want to stop having bad encounters with the police.

George Floyd was a felon, high on drugs, tried to pass counterfeit money and the resisted arrest. He chose to make these bad choices and they led to his death. He would still be alive if he made better choices. The choice was his though.

The autopsy provides evidence that the police didn’t cause Floyd’s death. There was no damage to his throat and no evidence of strangulation so the only thing left is a heart attack or stroke caused by poor health, drugs and the stress of resisting arrest.

Please stop using offensive words: a snowflake might take serious offense to the violence of “nails them”.

You are correct that absolutely nothing is going to change for blacks in this because absolutely none of the heavy lifting that is needed to fix things has been done. It is all lip service. I bet if one were to look at the most recent two weeks of the Balmer Sun that they would find that 14 black people killed 14 other black people, which be the same story for the previous two week period, going back 10, 20, 30 years. I guess BLM is null and void in Balmer, likely because there are no guilt ridden white people to shake down. That is why it flourishes in Portland, because there is a never ending supply of guilty white people. I often joke that the BLM signs outnumber the actual black people by at least 10 fold, and that you can tell where the ghetto begins because that is where the BLM yard signs stop.

Maybe we do need another civil war

We’re not really prepared for it. “Prepared” means we have equipment and, more importantly, marching orders. What exactly do we do when black supremacists and their “useful idiot” allies seize the center of town? Grousing and threatening are all very good but they don’t produce results.

When Paul Revere et al set out to find and warn Sam Adams and John Hancock that British troops were on the way to arrest them, more local networks notified farmers who then spent the night walking across the fields (not on the roads, which were too easily controlled by British troops) to the places they knew they had to defend. And so the troops from Boston met armed formations in the morning. And we had “the shot heard round the world,” etc. But those men had their marching orders. Nothing would have happened otherwise.

Now, in the current crisis, a local response in Seattle would be far preferable to orders from Washington. But nobody local has any direction. Only one side is organized here. We’ve been counting on officialdom to do the obvious, but it’s not happening. And none of the good guys are ready to step into the power vacuum.

Cooking over fire goes back 100K years. As for smoking until tender, there is absolutely nothing black about it…period. The most well known ancient practitioners are Greeks and Etruscans..later Romans.
American sauces also had nothing to do with blacks. Regional sauces were exclusively white concoctions, some borrowed from Europe (North Carolina), some very original, being tomato based (a recipe for tomato ketchup is given in the very first American cookbook…and no it is not from Asia. It is from England which was introduced to sauce making from Rome..mushroom, walnuts or fish sauces were popular). None of this had anything to do with blacks other than they enjoy such food as others do and are equally proficient at preparation.
