More Audio Clips of Tucker Carlson Saying Awful Things Were Just Released, and Somehow They Just Keep Getting Worse and Worse

Right wing Fox News host Tucker Carlson was already in hot water for recordings of him calling women "primitive" and "basic" surfaced online.

Even after a bizarre non-apology, it seems like the backlash is bound to get worse. More recordings have been released.


Like their predecessors, the tapes are from a call-in interview Carlson did for the radio show Bubba the Love Sponge in 2008.

In the newly-released tapes, Carlson makes a number of racist and Islamophobic statements, like

"Iraq is a crappy place filled with a bunch of, you know, semiliterate primitive monkeys."

Listen below:

In another tape, Carlson repeatedly uses the term "faggot."

Just as bafflingly as his refusal to apologize for the misogynist tapes, Carlson is also digging his heels into the ground with these latest ones. He went on a diatribe addressing the tapes on his show last night, lamenting his self-awarded victim status and railing against what he called "the American outrage machine."

After accusing the Left of prioritizing "late term abortion and crossdressing fifth graders" over free speech, accusing them of trying to kill his show for years, Carlson said:

"These are the people who write our movies and our sitcoms. These people are not shocked by naughty words, they just pretend to be when it's useful. And it's been very useful lately. The Left's main goal is to control what you think...We will never bow to the mob. Ever. No matter what."

But it turns out that many disagree with Carlson's stance that defending pedophiles and calling Iraqis "primitive monkeys" doesn't warrant an apology.

In addressing the tapes on his show, Carlson said something that's unfortunately true.

Fox News is on his side, not demanding an apology.

That didn't surprise anyone.

And why wouldn't Fox take up for him? His viewers seem to think the Left is ridiculous for being repulsed by his comments—and that repulsion is, inexplicably, an attack on free speech.

Yikes.

In December, President Donald Trump established the United States Space Force, a sixth branch of the United States Army.

The goal of the force is to protect United States assets in outer space from foreign rivals and is slated to cost around $2 billion in the next five years.

Today, Trump unveiled the official logo for the Space Force, but people think it bears a striking resemblance to another iconic symbol.

People were stunned this past July when President Donald Trump tweeted that four Congresswomen of color—Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA)—should "go back" to where they came from.

He also falsely claimed they "originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe..."

Three of the Congresswomen were born in the United States. Omar was a refugee from Somalia. All are Americans.

At a campaign rally days later in North Carolina, President Donald Trump mentioned Congresswoman Omar—and got a strong reaction from the crowd.

While bigotry is common at a Trump rally, it became even more blatant when Trump's supporters began chanting "Send her back," echoing the calls from Trump's tweet for them to "go back" to where they came from.

As Democratic House impeachment managers make their case against President Donald Trump, one of his favorite news networks is going to lengths to keep the bevy of evidence against him from reaching their viewers' ears.

At first, Fox News tried scrolling Trump's so-called accomplishments alongside live video of the historic proceedings. Now, the network's latest attempt to distract from the Democrats' arguments is raising eyebrows even higher.

Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman was one of the first witnesses in the House of Representatives' initial impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Vindman testified before the House's select committee on impeachment late last year after hearing Trump's infamous July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The administration of President Donald Trump relies on its white Evangelical base to keep its support consistently hovering around 40 percent.

In keeping with this, President Donald Trump often invokes anti-abortion values he claims to hold dear. He's falsely claimed that Democrats are determined to rip babies from their mothers' wombs and that parents often discuss with their doctors whether or not to keep the baby...after the baby is born.

These claims are patently false, but they rile up the base.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos seems to be playing right along in promoting abortion hysteria, if a recent speech is any indication.

After hours of evidence presented by the House Impeachment managers in the Senate trial against President Donald Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) strayed even further into the abyss of fanaticism as he defended the President to reporters.

Graham, a Trump critic turned ally, didn't attempt to refute any of the myriad evidence laid out by Democrats, but instead dismissed the claims that Trump did anything wrong when he withheld congressionally approved aid from Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into his political rival.
