Breaking: @ADL calls for Tucker Carlson’s firing in a letter to Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott. @JGreenblattADL says “it was shocking to hear this kind of open-ended endorsement of white supremacist ideology from an anchor and commentator on your network.” https://t.co/jtovqlmxmG— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) April 9, 2021
Fox has not responded to requests for comment about Tucker Carlson today. If history is any guide, the network will take no action. Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch have ignored all sorts of past criticism… https://t.co/jtovqlmxmG— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) April 9, 2021
.@TuckerCarlson: “replacement theory” is a white supremacist tenet that the white race is in danger by a rising tide of non-whites.— Jonathan Greenblatt (@JGreenblattADL) April 9, 2021
It is antisemitic, racist and toxic. It has informed the ideology of mass shooters in El Paso, Christchurch and Pittsburgh.

Tucker Carlson got himself in big trouble.
We’ve been fond of pointing out lately that all of these issues are “intersectional.” In this case, we are seeing the intersection of the Jewish Question, political correctness and cancel culture, censorship, Woke Capitalism and the corruption of “journalism” which now serves powerful elites.
“New York (CNN Business) – The Anti-Defamation League is calling for Fox News to fire Tucker Carlson.”
Given his long record of race-baiting, we believe it is time for Carlson to go,” ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt says.
There is zero indication that Fox will take such a step — or even reprimand Carlson. But the ADL’s call, delivered in a letter to Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott, underscores the extreme and unsettling nature of Carlson’s anti-immigration commentary.
Carlson, the highest-rated host on Fox News, drew condemnations for his comments about “replacement” on another Fox show Thursday evening.
In the ADL’s ensuing letter on Friday, first obtained by CNN Business, Greenblatt accused Carlson of an “open-ended endorsement of white supremacist ideology.” …”
“The Anti-Defamation League and other Jewish groups on Friday morning blasted Fox News host Tucker Carlson after the TV talker offered up a passionate defense of the racist “Great Replacement” conspiracy theory the night prior.
The theory is a “white supremacist tenet that the white race is in danger by a rising tide of non-white,” ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt tweeted on Friday morning, noting that the concept has also served as motivation for several high-profile mass murders.
“It is antisemitic, racist and toxic. It has informed the ideology of mass shooters in El Paso, Christchurch and Pittsburgh,” the ADL leader wrote, adding a call for the TV star’s ouster: “Tucker must go.” …”
The ringleaders of political correctness, cancel culture and censorship all rolled into one have been drawn out into the open. It is “anti-Semitic” to notice the Jews are naming themselves here.
Note: CNN is accusing Tucker Carlson of “white supremacy” and “toxic masculinity.” In other words, there has been virtually no change in their unusual content.
