(Patriot Insider) – Popular Fox News host Tucker Carlson is truly enjoying the latest hit piece put out on him by the New York Times, laughing hysterically about the whole thing. The report claims that Carlson is stoking “white fear” and that his current program might be “the most racist program in the history of cable news.”
The left still has not learned that the constant abuse of the term “racist” has led to the phrase losing all of its sting, punch, and actual meaning. When a word is misused like this, when it becomes a weapon to mischaracterize people who aren’t actually the thing the word defines, people no longer pay any attention to it when it is applied to someone.
In reality, this is very bad. There actually are legitimately racist folks out in the world today, though Tucker Carlson is not one of them. Unfortunately, when these people rear their ugly heads, people will pay it no mind because they will immediately write off the usage of the term “racist” as just another left-wing buzzword.
Actions have consequences.
According to WND, Carlson, the highest-rated host in all of cable news, went on to tweet out a photo of himself laughing while holding up a copy of the NYT weekend edition which featured an in-depth, frog-page series called, “American Nationalist: Part 1,” “How Tucker Carlson Stoked White Fear to Conquer Cable.”

“This isn’t an opinion or a take,” Times reporter Nick Confessore went on to say in a tweet. “It’s a fact – supported by our content analysis of 1,150 episodes of ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight.'”
More successfully than almost anyone else, Carlson has taken a set of themes and conspiracy theories, formerly caged on the fringe of American politics, and brought them to a mainstream audience. His show may be the most racist program in the history of cable news.

Carlson went on to tell the folks at Axios that he hasn’t read a single word of the series (screenshot here) the Times is publishing about him, “and of course won’t.”
During an episode of his show last week, Carlson said of the reporters working for the Times, “They’re suck-ups, brown-nosers, lickspittles, not people you’d want to have dinner with.”
“This has gotta be the tenth or twenty-seventh or two hundred and seventeenth story just like this the New York Times has run and all of them are pretty much identical,” Carlson said.
“If you wanted to criticize this show, there are plenty of things you could say. We’ve got a ton of supposedly controversial opinions on a million different topics. We talk about them every night,” he continued.

When it comes to the topic of race, Carlson stated that he does not have an “exotic” view.
“We believe Martin Luther King,” he stated.
“We don’t think your skin color is the most important thing about you. We think all people were created by God and should therefore be judged by what they do, not by how they look,” he explained.
“Why do they keep calling us racist? Well, to make us shut up, obviously. They tried the same thing with Trump for years. They’re doing out right now to Elon Musk, of course. If you don’t obey them, they denounce you as a racist. Why do they do this? They do it ’cause it works. But here’s the thing. It can only work if you play along with it, and we don’t plan to,” the Fox News host remarked.
Here are a few responses to Tucker’s photo:
-“‘American nationalist.’ Is that supposed to be a pejorative? Because it sounds like a compliment.”
-“Everyone that posts a National Ukraine Flag is a Nationalist.”
-“Controlled or not the guy is making waves by mentioning what the rest of media is in desperation to keep silent.”
-“I got a chance to study this series about Tucker. Here’s my take. The series telegraphs what the slimy left does. In other words, if you replace Tucker with the ‘we on the left,’ they’re talking about themselves. It’s a full confession😃”
