Kudos to Fox News for not folding to demands to silence free speech.
Last week, Tucker Carlson spent the first segment on his show discussing illegal immigration. One comment he made caused Pacific Life to drop him and since then, others have followed like lemmings.
This is the comment that caused the scared little lemmings to run:
“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,” he said, before criticizing immigrants with his take on the Emma Lazarus poem at the base of the Statue of Liberty. “Huddled masses yearning to breathe free? Nope, cynical shakedown artists who have been watching too much CNN.”
The word “dirtier” really got to people.
On Monday, he had this to say:
“The left says we have a moral obligation to admit the world’s poor. Even if it makes our own country more like Tijuana is now, which is to say poorer and dirtier and more divided,” he said. “That’s what we said. It’s true… But precisely because it is so obviously true, saying it out loud is a threat.”
