Brit Hume comes out swinging with the ‘best revenge’ after leftists pile on Tucker Carlson

With the George Soros-backed liberal Media Matters coming after Fox News’ Tucker Carlson again, we know the script well.

After all, the left knows who the loudest voices on the right are and have made it a practice of going after Fox News opinion hosts, be it Bill O’Reilly, when he plied his wares at the network, or hosts Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham.

But Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume hit back perfectly after the latest run at Tucker, taking to Twitter to offer this gem: “Doing well is the best revenge.”

Hume included the latest ratings numbers that shows Carlson is not only beating the competition, he is smoking them.

And Carlson isn’t about to yield to the rabid left-wing mob trying to get him fired over decade-old comments he made on a radio “shock jock” show.

In his opening monologue Monday, Carlson said the left have “been working hard to kill this show” from the beginning, and that Fox News is firmly behind him.

He praised his network for its “toughness,” and said he will “never, ever” cave to the mob trying to silence him.

“We’ve always apologized when we are wrong and we will continue to do that. That’s what decent people do — they apologize,” he said. “But we will never bow to the mob — ever. No matter what.”

Media Matters released audio recordings of Carlson from 2006 to 2011 in which he made some off-color remarks while calling in to the “Bubba the Love Sponge Show,” a radio shock program.

The left-wing media watchdog group followed that up with additional audio of what they claimed to be racist comments from Carlson.

In 2008, while calling into the same show, he suggested Michelle Obama could pose a problem for Barack Obama because she “turns into a sister.”  Carlson also questioned whether Obama was black, saying, “How is he Black, for one thing? He has one white parent, one Black parent.”

He also said that “Iraq is a crappy place filled with a bunch of, you know, semiliterate primitive monkeys — that’s why it wasn’t worth invading.”

As the left desperately tries to summon the needed outrage, images of MSNBC’s Joy Reid comes to mind, as the media slept through the story of her making homophobic comments and Reid’s claim that her now-defunct blog was hacked and the offensive comments were placed there.

Eventually, Reid owned up to the comments and apologized.

While Hume may have had a few critics, he also has lots of support in his observation.

Here’s a sampling of some of those responses from Twitter:

Through all the remarks, the prevailing thought may be poor Wolf Blitzer and CNN!
