On Sunday, progressive media watchdog Media Matters for America published old audio of Fox News host Tucker Carlson making breaking down remarks about females in a series of wide-ranging discussions on shock jock radio program “Bubba The Love Sponge”. The tapes were taped in between 2006 and 2011, and they’ve brought to light previous important comments from Carlson.
Some clips apparently show a pattern of thought on concerns talked about in the recordings, including Carlson’s thoughts on relationships between teens and adults.
In other clips, he slammed the use of particular words that he utilizes in Sunday’s resurfaced recordings, and called particular professions inherently breaking down to ladies.
Carlson has previously safeguarded relationships between underage teens and grownups
In the recordings resurfaced Sunday, Carlson can be heard drawing a distinction between kid marriage and rape when going over declared polygamist cult leader Warren Jeffs, whose Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints allegedly organized marital relationships in between adult males and underage girls.
“The rapist, in this case, has actually made a long-lasting commitment to live and take care of the person, so it is a little different. I mean, let’s be honest about it,” Carlson said of Jeffs’ marriages, before clarifying that he’s against the practice.
Later, in the 2009 tape-recording, he stated, “If a person desires to be polygamist, that’s kind of his business … I’m simply telling you that arranging a marital relationship between a 16- year-old and a 27- year-old is not the exact same as pulling a complete stranger off the street and raping her.”
In April 2014, Carlson called the possibility of prosecuting a 42- year-old teacher for providing her 15- year-old trainee a lap dance in class “deranged,” stating, “there’s no victim here.” In a later section discussing the same event, he said the lap dance would be “the biggest thing that ever took place,” for most teen young boys.
Later that year, in June 2014, reported Talking Points Memo, Carlson protected a relationship in between a 16- year-old boy and his adult instructor, arguing that sex in between the two wasn’t rape.
In the sector, Carlson stated, “It’s ridiculous that we are calling this a rape. Are you serious?”
“You’re this kid, and all of a abrupt you’re a rape victim? You pursue an older lady, and have a relationship with her, and you’re a rape victim?” he continued.
This past year, in September 2018, Carlson gone over the sexual misconduct accusations versus Brett Kavanaugh, and slammed accuser Christine Blasey Ford for not speaking up about the declared incident between Kavanaugh and herself earlier, stating attack victims have an “obligation” to report their rape, or they’re “part of the problem.”
Carlson has repeatedly critiqued language that he used in the tapes
In May 2018, Carlson criticized progressive comic Samantha Bee for calling Ivanka Trump a “feckless c–.”
“I put on’t understand any male who uses that word due to the fact that it is kind of the one word that is really degrading,” he said during the sector.
In the recordings resurfaced Sunday, Carlson can be heard calling TV host Alexis Stewart, “extremely c– ty.” Later on he says, “I put on’t usage that word due to the fact that it’s offensive.”
In November 2018, Carlson defended his son throwing a glass of red wine at Juan Manuel Granados because he apparently called his daughter a “whore” and a “f– king c– t.”
In the Media Matters tapes, Carlson can be heard calling Britney Spears and Paris Hilton “two of the biggest white whores in America.”
In another segment in June 2018, covered at the time by Media Matters, Carlson slammed “the left” for presumably celebrating porn starlet Rainy Daniels.
“I can’t assistance but notification the impulse on the left is always to raise and commemorate anything that is repulsive, degrading, bad for you, anything that is low and ugly, they deify,” Carlson said.
In the tapes of Carlson released Sunday, he likewise called sex workers “slutty and worthless,” but likewise consistently made his own degrading remarks about females, critiquing the looks of particular women, consisting of now-Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, and comparing females in general to pet dogs, calling them “primitive.”
Sunday night, Carlson issued a statement calling his past remarks “naughty,” and challenging his critics onto his show.
“Media Matters captured me saying something naughty on a radio program more than a years ago,” Carlson composed in a Notes app message. “Rather than express the typical routine contrition, how about this: I’m on tv every weeknight live for an hour. If you desire to understand what I think, you can watch. Anybody who disagrees with my views is welcome to come on and discuss why.”
