We have just learned that the extreme leftist who is currently leading the attack on Fox News personality Tucker Carlson for being mean once a decade ago himself has a long list of racist posts.
Media Matters President Angelo Carusone is currently leading a smear campaign against Carlson and is trying to get Carlson’s advertisers to abandon him and get his employer, Fox News, to fire him.
Carusone claims that Carlson appeared on a shock jock-style radio show nearly ten years ago and made some inflammatory statements in the spirit of the shock radio format.
The Left-wing Media Matters chief claims that these radio bits prove that Carlson is a raaaacist who should be fired.
But now we find that Carusone himself has a history of making racist statements. Back in the mid 2000s, just about the same time Carlson was joking around on the shock radio show, Carusone was writing blog posts that are arguably MORE racist than Carlson’s radio jokes.
In 2005, for instance, Carusone posted slams on Jews and on transvestites.
As Daily Caller reports (remember, Carlson founded Daily Caller):
Carusone posted a lengthy diatribe in November 2005 about a Bangladeshi man who was robbed by “a gang of transvestites,” as Carusone described it. Carusone was offended that the gang was described as “attractive” in an article.
“Did you notice the word attractive? What the fuck is that doing in there? Is the write[r] a tranny lover too? Or, perhaps he’s trying to justify how these trannies tricked this Bangladeshi in the first place? Look man, we don’t need to know whether or not they were attractive. The fucking guy was Bangladeshi,” Carusone wrote. “And while we’re out, what the hell was he doing with $7,300 worth of stuff. The guy’s Banladeshi! [sic
That was not the only slams Carusone wrote against “trannies.”
In other posts he called Japanese people the pejorative “Japs,” and made several posts using ages old anti-Semitic tropes to make fun of Jews.
So, why are liberals listening to Carusone in his attacks on Tucker? Because they don’t really care at all about “racist language.” They only want some sort of weapon to use against conservatives like Tucker Carlson.
All liberals are liars to their core.
