Tucker Carlson Said Something “Bad”

Tucker Carlson says something controversial even though it’s true and this is why our country is becoming a more worse place to live. Free speech is in danger. Even though Carlson said these things, I don’t see anything wrong with what he said.

Over a dozen companies, including insurer Pacific Life and finance site NerdWallet, have dropped the show over Mr. Carlson’s controversial language.

He first made the remarks on Thursday and defended his rhetoric on Monday.

Fox News said Mr Carlson was “being threatened by far left activist groups with deeply political motives.”

On his programme, Tucker Carlson Tonight, last Thursday, Mr Carlson said the US needed “more scientists and skilled engineers but that’s not what we’re getting”.

The conservative host claimed immigration was “indefensible” economically.

“Our leaders demand that you shut up and accept this. We have a moral obligation to admit the world’s poor, they tell us, even if it makes our own country poorer and dirtier and more divided.”

Insurance company Pacific Life pulled advertising from Mr Carlson’s show last week after facing online criticism for having an ad air after the host’s immigration monologue.

“We strongly disagree with Mr Carlson’s statements,” Pacific Life tweeted on Friday. “We will not be advertising on Mr Carlson’s show in the coming weeks as we reevaluate our relationship with his programme.”
