[Heads up to our readers — there’s some spicy language in the quotes. You’ve been warned.]
Media Matters — the outfit that laid out and is executing an explicit plan for squeezing the Right out of the Digital Public Square — is an activist hit squad set up by Clinton loyalist, David Brock.
Sifting through decade-old material, they found some ‘dirt’ they could sully him with.
You might notice they only bother doing this with Republican targets. Nobody really cares, for instance, about Al Sharpton past inflammatory statements — which it is claimed directly contributed to the deaths of innocent people.
The very same @JoeNBC who sponsored a bill in congress accusing Al Sharpton of “inciting the murder of five people,” “racist and incendiary actions,” holding “racist antisemitic views.” now has him on his @Morning_Joe show to decry racism.

No, this is for one purpose and one purpose only… to attack and discredit political rivals that they cannot beat in the marketplace through open competition. (That tactic, too, was specifically mentioned in their ‘Media Matters War Plan 2017‘ strategy.
But Tucker, to his credit, isn’t playing their game.
He’s telling them to pound sand.

So, what is all the fuss about?
While talking to Shock Jock ‘Bubba The Love Sponge’ on his radio show, he made some controversial statements — on shock radio, can you imagine!
Can someone explain to me why anyone should care about what Tucker Carlson said to a SHOCK JOCK a decade ago?
It's just so strange and bizarre to watch the new puritans on the left pick up the faux outrage mantle of the rightwing puritans of the late 90's.

The statements he made were about a decade old. Some were even older.
Warren Jeffs, who was on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” list for his role in arranging illegal marriages between adults and underage girls.
Carlson said criminal charges against Jeffs were “bullshit” because “arranging a marriage between a 16-year-old and a 27-year-old is not the same as pulling a stranger off the street and raping her.”
…He didn’t stop there. Carlson called journalist Arianna Huffington a “pig,” and labeled Britney Spears and Paris Hilton “the biggest white whores in America.”
Carlson also referred to Martha Stewart’s daughter Alexis as “cunty.”
The underage marriage one needs a larger context to be properly understood and that last one isn’t quite true to the context, either. The shock jock called her that… Tucker, who said he wouldn’t normally use that word, agreed with the overall idea, so much as to say, yep. That’s the kind of person she is.
But context be damned! This is a smear campaign, after all, where the less nuanced and accurate you are the better it is.
Seriously, if we’ve got left-wing morons throwing around the term ‘Nazi’ like it’s suddenly everyone’s preferred pronoun, you’d think they would understand the difference between pejorative and insulting language and a statement of fact.
In Scotland, for instance, that same word is as common as ‘bitch’ is here, and means approximately the same thing — depending on context. So, what? Should Tucker be publicly hanged for basically calling someone a bitch a decade ago? Or calling a couple of famous chicks with infamous sex lives whores?
Maybe not hanged? Just have his business destroyed?
That’s the game they’re trying to play. Media Matters knows it can’t beat Fox in a fair fight. So they’re doing everything they know how to kneecap them financially — including ginning up spurious reasons for sponsor boycotts.
Of course, they’ll be calling for boycotts, if they haven’t already. Like we said… if you can’t beat them in a fair fight, you can always engineer their destruction.
People like that don’t REALLY believe in free speech broadly speaking… only that they should be free to speak.
No WONDER they are embracing the New Socialism that looks so much like the old one… Socialism by design gives way to totalitarianism when people don’t play by their rules, and when their big ideas don’t unfold in all the utopian ways they were expected.
As for Paris Hilton — you might say there’s video evidence to back up Tucker’s allegation.
Some people on the internet really get off on digging up dirt on people from 10, 20, or even 30 years ago…
These aren't activists. These are losers. Sad.

And Tucker’s a journalist, isn’t he? Doesn’t he run a news site when he’s not hosting on TV? Why, I do believe he does!
So where are Brian Stelter and Jim ‘DramaQueen’ Acosta to decry these vicious attacks against the First Amendment rights of journalists?
