Tucker Carlson Sparks Controversy With Past Comments About Women, Cult Leader Warren Jeffs And Underage G...

Today's media flap involves liberal advocacy group Media Matters going after a familiar target-Fox News, and specifically host Tucker Carlson.

While Outback says it cut ties in January, the decision had not been previously reported, and the chain is on Media Matters' list of Carlson's advertisers, which is being widely shared by critics of the Fox News host.

After Media Matters published the radio audio and accompanying transcripts, which retained the context of each comment, the left pounced on Carlson, calling for a boycott of his Fox News show or for Fox News to fire Carlson altogether. He adds that "anyone who disagrees with my views is welcome to come on and explain why".

"If you're talking to a feminist, and she's giving you, 'Well, men really need to be more sensitive, ' [say] no. I don't understand why, if you're an adult, you just can't get up and say, 'This is what the person did to me'".

CO-HOST: Yeah, that's what Warren Jeffs' in prison for. He also said women are "extremely primitive" people who enjoy being told to "be quiet and kind of do what you're told". Media Matters for America uncovered the audio and posted it for the world to get a better understanding of how deranged Carlson really is.

"Carlson said underage marriage is not the same thing exactly as pulling a child from a bus stop and sexually assaulting that child". The conservative commentator also called Britney Spears and Paris Hilton "two of the biggest white whores in America", and said he felt "sorry" for "unattractive women" like now-Supreme Court justice Elena Kagan.

"What do you mean an accessory?" Why wouldn't the guy who actually did it, who had sex with an underage bro, he should be the one who's doing life.

"I'm not for child rape", he said. He is accused of facilitating the marriage between a 16 year old girl and a 27 year old man. "And one of the things they hate more than anything is weakness in a man".

Carlson made regular appearances on air with Bubba the Love Sponge between 2006 and 2011, when he worked for MSNBC. Former Trump administration adviser Sebastian Gorka offered his support on Twitter, cheering on Carlson against what he called "the Leftists' attack-dogs".

In other segments, Carlson called for the elimination of rape shield laws, which are meant to protect the identities and histories of victims of sex crimes and engaged in a conversation about young girls and their sexual behavior.

"Look, just to make it absolutely clear".
