The news is out: [A petition demanding that Fox News host Tucker Carlson be immediately removed from the air has garnered over 100,000 signatures since its creation one week ago.
Change.org user “Erika (with a K)” started the petition titled “Remove Tucker Carlson” last week, following the latest bout of controversial statements made by the well-known Republican commentator.
Carlson came under criticism after he attempted to explain the actions of 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who allegedly shot and killed two people last week during a protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
In a segment of his show Tucker Carlson Tonight August 26, Carlson showed graphic footage from the riots, at which hundreds had gathered to protest the non-fatal shooting of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man who was shot seven times in the back by a white Kenosha police officer.
The Change.org petition calling for Carlson’s removal asserted that the host’s comments “are becoming increasingly dangerous,” and “are exemplary of blatant racism and fascism.”
“When a Black man is killed by police, Carlson implies that he’s a thug,” the petition stated. “When a White boy kills two protestors, Carlson implies that he’s a patriot and a hero.”]
It doesn’t make any sense to remove a turd from a cesspool; it belongs there.
