The American Defamation League (ADL) now has Tucker Carlson on its radar.
The ADL blasted recent statements by Carlson, demanding he be fired by Fox News for what it believes is white supremacist language.
Fox News, however, is having none of it, immediately stepping up to defend the polarizing host.
The latest Carlson controversy centers around a discussion Carlson was having regarding the “replacement theory.”
After the ADL slammed Carlson, Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch penned a letter to the ADL to defend Tucker Carlson.
In part, Murdoch slammed the ADL because he stated that Carslon “decried and rejected replacement theory” in the very segment the ADL used to say that Carslon should be terminated…
News: In a letter to ADL, Lachlan Murdoch dismissed the demand Fox fire Tucker Carlson. Murdoch indicated a "full review" of Carlson's comments found no wrongdoing & noted ADL once honored his father. ADL responds it "would not" honor Rupert Murdoch today. https://t.co/6mms2Tkbfw

ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt responded, “Mr. Carlson’s attempt to at first dismiss this theory, while in the very next breath endorsing it under cover of ‘a voting rights question,’ does not give him free license to invoke a white supremacist trope.”
This is the segment where Carlson appeared that created all the uproar…
All the outrage got started because left-leaning Media Matters claimed that Tucker Carlson offered up a passionate defense of the “white replacement theory,” yet anyone that heard that interview could see that was not the case.
This is one of the key elements of the left to create unrest in this country right now… make race a part of EVERY conversation.
Sadly, the strategy seems to be working.
