The left can’t stand Tucker Carlson.
His ratings are huge, and he doesn’t bow to the left wing narrative. As a result, every once in a while, they try to get his show taken off the air by targeting his advertisers.
Now they’re doing it again.
The Hill reports:
Tucker Carlson sees big-name advertisers bolt after comments on Black Lives Matter
Several big companies have dropped their advertising for “Tucker Carlson Tonight” after the Fox News host made controversial comments about the Black Lives Matter movement.
“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,” Carlson said on Monday. “And at this rate, they will.”
The liberal activist group Sleeping Giants tweeted the following day that Carlson’s remarks were “extremely racist” and asked T-Mobile — known to run advertising during Carlson’s hourlong program — to reconsider its financial support for the show.
The telecommunications giant tweeted back saying, “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.”
Tucker supporters on Twitter are using the hashtag #IStandWithTucker
NEVER bow to the mob. @TuckerCarlson never does.

Tucker Carlson is an American patriot and truth-teller. He's unafraid, unbowed and unrelenting in his cultural and political commentary. Of course he's a threat to the political posers and preeners! #IStandWithTuckerCarlson

#IStandWithTucker because he tells it like it is. They keep attempting to have his show cancelled or have sponsors abandon him because he kicks their asses in the ratings every night and they have no other way to defeat him.

#IStandWithTucker because far too many “conservatives” myopically focus on economics, letting the Left dominate and devastate our culture.
America is more than a GDP.

FOX News would be insane to listen to the left on this. Tucker Carlson is one of their best hosts.
