Tucker Carlson went OFF last night during his show on Fox News, insulting pregnant servicemembers and accusing these women of making a “mockery of the U.S. military.”
(Bold words from the heir to a frozen foods fortune who couldn’t be bothered to serve himself!)
Gordon, women have laid down their lives for our military since before we were a nation. They have fought, bled, and died for Tucker Carlson’s pathetic prep school ass to sit in that chair and mock them. We’re not going to stand for it.
Watch our new video calling out Tucker Carlson and donate to help us plaster the internet with it. Everyone needs to know that this man is a coward who attacks those braver than him who were willing to serve:
‘Retreat to your safe space, snowflake’: Tucker Carlson mocked for playing the victim after attacking women in the military
Fox News host Tucker Carlson is not backing down, but he is playing the victim in his own personal war on women.
I called Tucker Carlson a dick on National television. It’s high time I apologize…to dicks. Never should have lumped you in with that terrible terrible person.

Carlson, the face of Fox News, Tuesday night attacked the U.S. Military, and especially women service members, claiming they have harmed America’s military might by making our Armed Forces more “feminine.” He held up China’s military as a sign of strength, and quoted a Chinese government official who warned their nation young Chinese boys were becoming too “soft.”
Carlson told his viewers that pregnant women serving in the military make a “mockery” of America’s fighting forces.
By Thursday morning Carlson’s misogynistic remarks had gone viral, prompting an outpouring of support from people across the nation for women in the military.
And by midday the Pentagon, including the Secretary of Defense in a rare move, rebuked the Fox News host. Top military leaders from all branches of the nation’s armed forces spoke out to support women and chastise Carlson.
Moments ago, Carlson took to Twitter, not to apologize, but to double down and play the victim:
This afternoon, the Department of Defense issued a press release attacking this show: “Press secretary smites Fox Host.” Like we’re a hostile foreign power. Remarkable. We’ll respond at 8pm ET on #FoxNews

The actual title of that news release was: “Press Secretary Smites Fox Host That Dissed Diversity in U.S. Military.”
His attempt to play offense did not go over well (except with the right wing crowd that always “backs the blue” and “supports our troops,” unless Donald Trump or Fox News tells them not to.) Here’s how many are responding to Carlson:
That's right, retreat to your safe space, snowflake. Make it all about you and not about the brave military personnel you smeared. https://t.co/k6RHKr6cLK

IMO | DoD didn't "attack" your show, Son! They pushed back on your misogyny about women in the military "feminizing" the forces.
Want a cage match with a random woman solider? It could be arranged, and she'd RINSE your ass! 😏
But you gonna double-down like a putz, aren't you? https://t.co/BS2SqRbe78
