Tucker Carlson’s become the top-rated talk show host on cable news because he fights back against the left’s attempt to stage a cultural revolution to overthrow the American order.
On a nightly basis Carlson exposes the sinister methods through which the Democrat Party teams with the media, Hollywood, academia, sports leagues and social media companies to advance its agenda to remove Donald Trump from office.
But now Tucker Carlson faced this difficult choice after what just happened on his show.
During a recent broadcast Carlson interviewed “The Five” co-host Greg Gutfeld.
Carlson brought on Gutfled to discuss cancel culture, which is the latest authoritarian movement on the left.
In cancel culture liberal mobs force employers to fire employees and take away their livelihoods for expressing political opinions the left disagrees with.
Gutfeld appeared on Carlson’s show to pitch his idea on how to defeat cancel culture.
The first step, Gutlfeld noted was understanding why cancel culture was so effective.
Gutfeld explained that the left used corporate America to enforce its speech codes because individuals had no legal recourse since the First Amendment did not apply to private companies.
“Here’s the thing about cancel culture,” Gutfeld began. “This is the first workaround for the First Amendment in history. Because whenever you complain about cancel culture, they will say you have the First Amendment, freedom of speech. We’re just going to ruin your career and take your livelihood and drive you to suicide. So it’s actually making the First Amendment meaningless.”
Gutfeld theorized that the only way to defeat cancel culture was to use it against the left and “cancel” prominent liberal voices for past sins.
“Because right now it’s too cheap to pull it off,” Gutfeld declared. “The low barrier for entry to join a mob is nil. So the solution is to make it expensive and the key is to share the risk. If we stick together and it’s really easy, the price becomes too high for the mob. The only reason why they exist is because we don’t stick together. We get scared. We hide.”
Gutfeld cited the example of Des Moines register reporter Aaron Calvin who “canceled” Carson King after an image of King asking for beer money on an episode of ESPN’s College Game Day went viral.
“Remember the reporter that canceled the kid who donated all that money to the children’s hospital?” he asked. “He found like an old tweet. Then like a week later they found tweets of the reporter. He lost his job. It has to be like that,” Gutfeld continued.
King raised one million dollars as an online fundraising campaign exploded and King donated the money to a local children’s hospital.
In writing a profile of King – who was a private citizen – Colvin uncovered tweets from when King was in high school that contained offensive language.
When King found out Colvin would use the quotes in his story King called a press conference to apologize and was effectively canceled.
But angry readers dug into Colvin’s Twitter feed and found equally offensive tweets which led to the paper asking for Colvin’s resignation.
Gutfeld said turning cancel culture into a form of mutually assured destruction was the only way to end this madness.
But Carlson responded by saying he was not sure he could agree with that course of action.
That leaves Carlson to come up with an alternative to making the right’s opponents live under their own rules.
