Fox News host Tucker Carlson is once again facing an exodus of advertisers, this time from companies who appear to have no qualms about thumbing their noses at the truth.
Take the mobile carrier T-Mobile, which has been accused of operating “electronic sweatshops.” After being confronted on Twitter this week by extremists at the left-wing propaganda group Sleeping Giants over recent remarks made by Carlson, the carrier revealed that it no longer advertises on his program.
Of course. We haven’t run ads on Tucker Carlson Tonight since early May and have cancelled all future placements. We will continue to support those who stand against racial injustice.

The carrier justified its decision by claiming it stands “against racial injustice.”
The left-wing propaganda group Sleeping Giants has been alerting companies such as T-Mobile to remarks Carlson made earlier this week about the ongoing Maoist-like cultural revolution happening as a result of George Floyd’s death.
“This may be a lot of things, this moment we are living through, but it is definitely not about black lives — and remember that when they come for you, and at this rate, they will,” he’d said on Monday. “Anyone who has ever been subjected to the rage of the mob knows the feeling. It’s like being swarmed by hornets. You cannot think clearly.”
The remarks had been part of a lengthy monologue in which he’d argued that the Black Lives Matter-inspired cultural revolution is about nothing else but increasing the power and control of the Democrat Party.
Why else are Democrats defending looters and rioters who destroyed the businesses of law-abiding black Americans? Why else are left-wing corporations firing people for simply asserting that all lives should matter? Why else are people being punished for simply thinking different than what the Democrat Party would like them to think?
Being as Sleeping Giants is an extremist propaganda outfit, however, it chose to ignore the context of Carlson’s remarks and put a twisted focus on, one, what he’d said about the cultural revolution not being about black lives, and two, what he’d said about the zealots and devotees of the ongoing cultural revolution coming for people.
To hear Sleeping Giants tell it, Carlson had basically been warning white people that blacks are coming for them. And not surprisingly, T-Mobile and other left-wing corporations have bought this narrative hook, line and sinker, never mind the facts.
T-Mobile in particular has been quite nasty about this matter.
Responding to a Twitter user who said he’d be dropping the carrier if it stands behind Carlson’s monologue, T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert snidely tweeted, “It definitely is not. Bye-bye Tucker Carlson! #BlackLivesMatter.”
It definitely is not. Bye-bye Tucker Carlson! #BlackLivesMatter

Other clearly left-wing corporations that have bent the knee to the Maoist-like mobs reportedly include Disney and Papa Johns.
It’s ironic because they’re all proving Carlson’s point to a T.
During another monologue Tuesday evening, the FNC host explained how exactly these Maoist-like mobs operate and how corporations invariably fall under their spell.
“They’re mostly faceless political agitators who exist primarily online. They’re trolls who thrive on cruelty, and yet suddenly they have immense power over all of us. Weak leaders now reflexively bow to their demands, no matter what those demands are,” he said.
“The country’s defenses have been badly weakened by decades of relentless propaganda, all of it designed to make us feel that we have no right to stand up for ourselves, to stand up for our country. We are too sinful to resist. We deserve whatever we get. Shut up and take it, America.”
While this propaganda used to exist on the fringes of society, it now dominates mainstream culture and can be found in classrooms, on so-called “news” networks, in the world of sports, in government and now at corporations as well.
“Who are we!?” he continued. “Well at this point, we’re becoming North Korea. We now believe in bloodguilt, we punish people for the sins of their relatives, we don’t allow individuals to have private thoughts, we hurt anyone who disagrees with orthodoxy.”
“We demand that the innocent plead guilty to things we know they didn’t do and then read their confessions in public to prove they’ve been re-educated — and then we brag about doing all of this.”
Listen to the whole segment below:
Carlson disagrees with the Black Lives Matter orthodoxy/religion/propaganda/dogma that’s being peddled by mainstream society, and so he must suffer.
Like David Harsanyi wrote in a column Tuesday, “We’re in the dawn of a high-tech, bloodless Cultural Revolution; one that relies on intimidation, public shaming, and economic ruin to dictate what words and ideas are permissible in the public square.”
What’s happening is dystopian — not to mean eerily similar to what transpired in George Orwell’s classic novel, “1984” — but alas, the disciples of this new religion sweeping the nation are too entrenched in arrogance and ignorance to even care.
The only time they’ll likely ever care is when the mob finally comes for them, which you can guarantee it eventually will.
Update 8:00 pm, June 11th: A Fox News spokesperson has confirmed that “all national dollars/ads were moved to other programs and there has not been any national money lost” by the network as a whole.
