Tucker Carlson has been under attack for months.
His enemies in the media and the left sensed an opportunity to force him off the air.
And everyone thought the worst when Carlson went on TV and said these two words.
Carlson made waves last month when he refused to apologize to the left’s fake outrage mob after the character assassins at Media Matters dug up an over decade-old audio of Carlson’s guest appearances on a shock jock radio program.
Fake news media critics summoned up their most phony “righteous” outrage and thundered that Carlson should apologize and pay a professional price.
Carlson did neither because he knew the leftist mobs weren’t really upset.
They just wanted to silence him.
But Carlson did apologize for something.
Carlson used his opening monologue during a recent broadcast to apologize for joining the pile-on and mocking former Vice President Joe Biden for making women feel uncomfortable.
The popular Fox News host claimed the left exploited the Biden scandal to further their transformation of America into a “PC hell.”
“We want to begin tonight’s show with an apology,” Carlson began. “Apologies are not something you often hear on cable news, on this or any other show. But we are offering one anyway. There is no lawsuit forcing us to do it and no court order making us, or skittish advertisers. We’re sincere in this, we mean it. It has to do with Joe Biden.”
Carlson continued, “When the story first broke—passing out Eskimo kisses and sniffing other people’s hair—it was irresistible and you could not not laugh at it. And we did. We mocked Joe Biden as an impulsive hugger; a cuddler run amok. And it was too amusing. What we should have said every bit as loudly, and we apologize for not saying, is that hugging is not sexual assault.”
“Eskimo kisses are not rape,” Carlson continued. “That used to be obvious, but it’s not obvious anymore. And so we are sorry for blurring the distinction between human affection and, of course, immoral behavior. The last thing this country needs is more people that think they are assaulted because a senior citizen hugs them wrong. So we apologize for adding to that nonsense; that anti-human hysteria,” Carlson concluded.
This essay shocked many viewers.
Many Americans believe the #MeToo movement has gone too far.
It began as a legitimate vehicle for women to oust predators and hold them accountable.
But some critics believe it is now a weapon that liberal activists use to silence their opponents.
The first woman who came forward alleging Biden’s inappropriate behavior was a Bernie Sanders supporter.
But how much did the opportunity to damage Sanders’ chief rival play in her decision to go public?
Americans are asking this very question.
Carlson also wondered if the left was using the Biden scandal to turn America into a cold and uncaring society where people will become afraid to engage in any social interactions lest they end up on the wrong side of liberal activists who will play the role of judge, jury, and executioner in these cases.
