Company Looks To Gut Tucker Carlson over ‘Poorer and Dirtier’ Immigration Comment

Fiery conservative commentator Tucker Carlson has never had a problem speaking his mind. For better or for worse, the Fox News host’s public opinions are unfiltered and raw, which contributes to his sizable following.

Given Carlson’s unabashed approach to sociopolitical discourse, he has made his fair share of leftist rivals. Sometimes, as is the case with CNN, those leftists have no discernible comeback other than to mock him.

Other leftists, however, have taken to aiming for Carlson’s wallet when he says something that might hurt their feelings.

Carlson is facing the wrath of leftists over a comment he made on his show while decrying rampant and unchecked immigration into America.

“We have a moral obligation to admit the world’s poor, they tell us, even if it makes our own country poorer and dirtier and more divided,” Carlson said.

That comment sparked immediate outrage across social media, with many people complaining to the various advertisers on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

I saw you advertise on Tucker Carlson's show. One of the biggest advertisers of the year, in fact!

Insurance company Pacific Life, for its part, caved in to the outrage spreading across social media and pulled its ads from Carlson’s show. The company announced the decision on Twitter.

“As a company, we strongly disagree with Mr. Carlson’s statements. Our customer base and our workforce reflect the diversity of our great nation, something we take great pride in. We will not be advertising on Mr. Carlson’s show in the coming weeks as we reevaluate our relationship with his program.”

Fox News responded to Pacific Life’s decision with a statement to The Hill.

“It is a shame that left wing advocacy groups, under the guise of being supposed ‘media watchdogs’ weaponize social media against companies in an effort to stifle free speech,” a company representative said. “We continue to stand by and work with our advertisers through these unfortunate and unnecessary distractions.”

As of this publication, Carlson has not responded to the controversy surrounding his remarks.

It's my experience that responding to progressives/leftists in an attempt to sooth their 'feelings' always ends in disaster. Once they see you on the defensive it draws more of them to argue with you, like blood in the water draws sharks.

They don't just aim for the wallets - they also attack their homes and families:

If the quote is accurate then Tucker Carlson spoke the truth. Nothing wrong with that!
