WaPo Columnist Attacks Tucker Carlson Claiming He is A Racist Favorite
The Washington Post has apparently run out of real news so they are back to pushing stories like this. WaPo Columnist Eric Wemple decided to run a story that claims that Tucker Carlson is the preferred Fox News host for White Supremacists. Wemple used Buzzfeed to back up his ludicrous claim.
“An analysis by an independent researcher, who requested anonymity because he feared retaliation from Anglin and other neo-Nazis, found that Carlson had been featured in 265 articles on the Daily Stormer between November 2016 and November 2018.
By way of comparison, Sean Hannity, considered President Trump’s most rock-ribbed supporter on Fox News, was featured in 27 articles in the same time period; Laura Ingraham, another Fox News host, in four; and Lou Dobbs, whose Fox Business show frequently focuses on the alleged dangers posed by immigrants.
The researcher used subject tags, created by Daily Stormer to categorize topics on its site, to arrive at the above numbers. BuzzFeed News was able to independently verify the researcher’s work by using the same method.”
Wemple using that research claims Carlson is catering to racists.
“Carlson has consistently pursued storylines and polemical themes that please racists. Carlson hypes alleged crimes and dislocation caused by immigration; he demands that U.S. elites defend the cliche that diversity is our greatest strength; he circulates bogus material about South Africa’s alleged injustices against white farmers, and he cheers on Trump’s hard-line immigration policies.”
People are not defined by their fans. But that is the basis for Wemple’s argument. Even when he tries to explain his view, Wemple is just twisting Tucker’s views or expressing that he disagrees. Wemple is against strengthening borders and is drinking the Liberal Koolaid when it comes to diversity. I would assume that he means diversity that is imposed like the forced diversity hires that Liberals push for at universities and businesses.
It sounds like a bitter Liberal writer is just looking for an excuse to call Tucker Carlson a racist. But I guess that’s what you get from WaPo.
