    In recent weeks, Tucker Carlson of FOX News has been a lone voice in the media wilderness. No one on television has been more brutally honest about what is happening in America right now. Carlson has even had the guts to criticize Black Lives Matter.

    For this, he must be punished.

    As has happened numerous times before, the left is going after his advertisers.

    Marty Johnson reports at The Hill:

    Tucker Carlson sees big-name advertisers bolt after comments on Black Lives Matter

    Several big companies have dropped their advertising for “Tucker Carlson Tonight” after the Fox News host made controversial comments about the Black Lives Matter movement.

    “This may be a lot of things, this moment we are living through, but it is definitely not about black lives, and remember that when they come for you,” Carlson said on Monday. “And at this rate, they will.”

    The liberal activist group Sleeping Giants tweeted the following day that Carlson’s remarks were “extremely racist” and asked T-Mobile — known to run advertising during Carlson’s hourlong program — to reconsider its financial support for the show.

    The telecommunications giant tweeted back saying, “We haven’t run ads on Tucker Carlson Tonight since early May and have cancelled all future placements. We will continue to support those who stand against racial injustice.”

    Some media outlets actually seem happy about this. Check out the playful joy in this headline from CBS News:

    “Bye-bye Tucker Carlson!” T-Mobile CEO says as advertisers drop Fox News show

    Companies including T-Mobile and Papa John’s Pizza are distancing themselves from Tucker Carlson’s television show on Fox News after the conservative host’s dismissive comments about the Black Lives Matters movement.

    The backlash intensified after Carlson on Monday offered an inflammatory take on the nationwide anti-racism demonstrations that have followed the death of George Floyd at the hands of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.

    Asked by a Twitter user the next day if Carlson’s message was one T-Mobile supported, CEO Mike Sievert tweeted back, “It definitely is not. Bye-bye Tucker Carlson! #BlackLivesMatter.”

    In fact, the telecom said in a subsequent tweet that it had cut ties with Carlson in early May, noting that it had “cancelled all future placements” and that T-Mobile will “continue to support those who stand against racial injustice.”

    As usual, the Twitter mob is driving this.

    Other Twitter users are showing support with the hashtag #IStandWithTucker

    Perhaps no one sums it up better than Tucker’s FOX News colleague Greg Gutfeld:

    This isn’t new. A lot of conservative talkers on both television and radio are being targeted. I’m willing to bet that the same people “Sleeping Giants” are the tip of the iceberg. If you download or subscribe to their shows it helps keep the numbers up. I’m not even sure Disney ever even had ads on Tucker’s show.

      They try this on Limbaugh every now and then. Generally, his advertisers find out they lose more business by dropping the show than they do by dropping the boycotters.

    When calling things what they are is a crime, sanity is treason.

    Hope these businesses realize that just by not advertising on Tucker Carlson’s show isn’t going to protect them from the wrath of the BLM movement, right? At some point they’ll say the wrong thing in a press statement. At some point they’ll air a racially “incorrect” advertisement. At some point it’ll be pointed out that they haven’t hired enough of the correct racially approved minorities in upper level management. In other words, this only delays the inevitable attack by BLM and the race baiters and race hustlers. It won’t prevent it. Guaranteed.

      Exactly. It’s like paying a blackmailer. It never stops.

      Once the Mob knows they can intimidate the company, their demands will never cease. The company can expect a series of extortionate demands, followed by pusillanimous capitulation.

      I’m reminded of Jacob Frey’s groveling before the Mob in Minneapolis, and George Bridges begging to go pee before the Mob at Evergreen State. No apology is ever enough, and any capitulation only whets the Mob’s appetite for fresh meat.

    Let them drop their ads – he’ll pick up new ads.
    If Fox drops Tucker, we must boycott Fox absolutely.

    Bye Bye T-Mobile – Hello PureTalk. I was too lazy to pull the trigger to save Yuge $$ – you made the decision for me to both oppose the cancel culture and put more bucks in my wallet to contribute to American-centric causes.

    Thanks Leftist T-Mobile, can’t wait for your Democrat Overlords to turn on your obscene corporate profits. (You idiots do know that the CEO has a compensation package of over $65,000,000 a year, right?)
