Piers Morgan Endorses White Supremacist

Former Screws and Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan chose to “break his silence” over his departure from ITV breakfast offering Good Morning Britain in a variety of ways, not least using the platform given him by Mail Online. But it is his choice of broadcast interviewer - Tucker Carlson - which is now coming under scrutiny, and attracting adverse comment.

And what's more, Ron

Carlson is one of the top rated hosts at Fox News Channel (fair and balanced my arse), and it was on FNC that Morgan appeared. This was not an isolated occurrence, as a quick perusal of Morgan’s Twitter back catalogue shows. He’s been a guest on Tucker Carlson Tonight, by his own admission, on several occasions since 2017.

Tucker Carlson - White Replacement Theory advocate

Why this matters, not just to Morgan but also Mail Online and GMB, is that Carlson is not merely a disinterested onlooker: he espouses a set of views that put him not just out there on the right, but into white supremacist, and indeed neo-Nazi territory.

This is part of what Carlson said on FNC yesterday, in what Nikki McCann Ramírez of Media Matters For America called a “passionate defense of ‘white replacement’ theory”: “I know that the left and all the little gatekeepers on Twitter become literally hysterical if you use the term ‘replacement’, if you suggest the Democratic Party is trying to replace the current electorate … with new people, more obedient voters, from the Third World”.

You read that right. And there is more. “They become hysterical, but that’s what’s happening, actually. Let’s just say it, that’s true … On the most basic level, it’s a voting rights question. In a democracy, one person equals one vote. If you change the population, you dilute the political power of the people who live there [!]”. And more.

So every time they import a new voter, I become disenfranchised as a current voter. Everyone wants to make a racial issue out of it … no, this is a voting rights question. I have less political power because they’re importing a brand new electorate. Why should I sit back and take that? The power that I have as an American, guaranteed at birth, one man one vote, they’re diluting it. No, they’re not allowed to to that”. Incitement, too.

The Sleeping Giants Twitter feed mused “Not even sure what to say anymore. This week, Carlson trashed diversity programs, defended insurrectionists and now white replacement theory and not one Fox advertiser nor cable distributor will say or do a thing. What a depressing state of affairs". Mehdi Hasan also watched Carlson’s rant.

I’ve watched this a few times now and it’s sickening. The banality of white supremacy, if you will. And imagine saying this far right stuff on...Holocaust Memorial Day (!)”. Michael Edison Hayden of the Southern Poverty Law Center reminded us “What Tucker Carlson says here about whites being replaced by the ‘Third World’ lines up with what the New Zealand terrorist wrote in his 2019 manifesto. Society condemned that document and pushed it off the web. This we feed to millions every night”. Sadly, this is spot on.

It is yet another manifestation of the Murdoch mafiosi. Moreover, as Emma Kennedy pointed out, “Reminder: this is the man Piers Morgan chose to give an interview to”.

That is who Morgan is happy to endorse. A white supremacist. Principles? Morals?

Time to start making the Buzzword Bollocks Bingo Card. “Woke”, “Cancel Culture” and “Victim” will do for starters. All suggestions gratefully received.

So by his logic every time a white person achieves their majority, he's disenfranchised a little? Every time a voter dies, he gets a little back?

Or is he perhaps talking crap?

Tucker Carlson is gold and speaks his own mind unlike commentators on other US channels. Tuckers show is the most watched on cable TV. Your attempts to slur him are ridiculous, rather like an lone ant attacking a lion !

Just wait until Morgan starts licking the boots of dead Nazi-loving racist fruitloop Phil the Greek.

That should be fun. A racing certainty to get him another far right propaganda gig at Gammon Bullshit "News".

Exposure to cable television lowers I.Q. scores and reduces voter turnout in local elections.

Why should we be surprised by the bigot Piers 'Moron' Morgan? For this was the man who on GMB asked Professor Kehinde Andrews who happens to be black why he did not go and live in another country if he hated Britain so much? All because Prof. Andrews had the nerve to be critical of Winston Churchill. As I have seen white historians and academics engage in also.

If Prof. Andrews had been white, I bet a pound to a penny that Morgan would not have suggested they'd be better off living in another part of the world.

If you love this posturing Elmer Gantry psychonaut so much why are you inflicting yourself on this forum ? Unless it's for comic effect, in which case "ultimate fail" old chap.

Yeah Tucker Carlson is a lying. He's also a far-right, money-grubbing halfwit who wouldn't hesitate to bend over if Rupe told him to. So what does that say about you? Ya sad crawler.
