Edited Video Clip Causes Tucker Carlson Advertisers to Flee
An edited video clip of something Tucker Carlson said has caused advertisers to flee his program. The “cancel culture” is at it again, and they mean to take him down. Followers of the Fox host say that if FOX takes him down, they will never turn on Fox News again. (Daily Caller)
The edited video clip in question was taken out of the full video by Justin Baragona, a contributing editor from the Daily Beast (hint an extremely left wing publication). The portion posted was where Tucker Carlson said:
“This may be a lot of things, this moment we are living through, but it is definitely not about black lives and remember that when they come for you, and at this rate, they will…Anyone who has ever been subjected to the rage of the mob knows the feeling. It’s like being swarmed by hornets.”

Tucker was right – the mob came for him next, except that wasn’t what he was talking about in the full video. The edited video clip did not show his full monologue. He was clearly talking about politicians. Just the posting of that one minute video caused advertisers to run.
Before that part of the edited video, Tucker Carlson stated,
“If Democratic leaders cared about saving the lives of black people – and they should – they wouldn’t ignore the murder of thousands of young black men in their cities every year. They wouldn’t put abortion clinics in black neighborhoods. They would instead do their very best to improve public schools and to encourage intact families, which we know beyond a shadow of a doubt is central to the life prospects of children.” Tucker Carlson
The viral Tweet that's making the rounds of Tucker Carlson's monologue tonight is about a minute long, and cuts out the majority of his speech. Here's the full clip.

But never mind the truth, he was compared to the KKK. He was called an “f***ing” racist. T-Mobile, Papa John’s Pizza, and Disney all ran like the cowards they are away from his show.
If you disagree with ANYTHING the left loves, you are a racist. It’s exhausting trying to reason with people who won’t listen to anything you have to say and twist whatever you do say. The rage mob has attempted to get Tucker off the air for several years. Let’s hope they don’t succeed this time.
I want to thank @TuckerCarlson for speaking unpopular truth. He said what needed to be said, what silenced leaders in the black community have been trying to say for decades. Thank you, I've seen these con artists attack my race all my life. Thank you for standing against them.
