ADL president calls on Fox News advertisers to boycott Carlson, network

The Anti-Defamation League is once again targeting Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson over his immigration-related on-air remarks.

According to The Hill, the group’s president, Jonathan Greenblatt, is calling on advertisers to boycott the “problematic” hosts and programs in an apparent effort to see Carlson lose his job.

“Literally a prompt to violence”

“Choose to pause or even pull your ads not just from problematic programs but altogether from networks that don’t respect all people or that repeat baseless conspiracies that endanger all of us,” Greenblatt said on Tuesday to a group representing the World Federation of Advertisers.

He went on to detail “how ugly” such rhetoric can be, “especially when it is repeated by someone with millions of viewers across the country,” adding that it is “also dangerous, literally a prompt to violence.”

According to Greenblatt, advertisers “are uniquely positioned to push these networks — whether mass media or social media — to do their utmost to ensure that hatred and conspiracy theories are not amplified.”

Carlson received criticism from the ADL and other organizations earlier this month over comments that were interpreted as a defense of the controversial “replacement theory,” suggesting that liberals are attempting to remake the American electorate by admitting an increased number of immigrants.

However, Carlson responded to Greenblatt’s earlier criticism by pointing out that the ADL has warned that the same thing could happen in Israel.

“Makes perfect sense”

“With historically high birth rates among the Palestinians, and a possible influx of Palestinian refugees and their descendants now living around the world, Jews would quickly become a minority within a bi-national state, thus likely ending any semblance of equal representation and protections,” the host said on April 12, quoting a previous ADL report.

Carlson continued, referencing the group’s conclusion that “the Jewish population would be increasingly politically — and potentially physically — vulnerable” under such a scenario,” determining that it “is unrealistic and unacceptable to expect the state of Israel to voluntarily subvert its own sovereign existence and nationalist identity and become a vulnerable minority within what was once its own territory.”

The host acknowledged that the ADL’s conclusion “makes perfect sense” from the perspective of Israel’s leaders.

“Why would any democratic nation make its own citizens less powerful?” Carlson asked. “Isn’t that the deepest betrayal of all?”

Former ADL President Abraham Foxman joined Fox Corp CEO Lachlan Murdoch and others in taking issue with his successor’s opinion, declaring: “Fox is not an anti-Semitic network. It is a lot of things, but it’s not an anti-Semitic network, and it’s certainly not an anti-Israel network.”

      1. I totally agree,if T.Carson & Sean Hanity are cancelled Fox is just a memory, News Max will be the only news we depend on.

    1. Me, either, Ed! He’s my favorite — he has the courage to say it like it is. Kind of like our good President Trump did! Sure miss our President. 🙁

  1. Newsmax is a great source. If Tucker Carlson is fired, I will have no reason to watch Fox News. So sad you listen to the hateful ADL, BLM and the like.

  3. Tucker Carlson is one, if not the only one, that will tell the news as it is AND without bias! He informs. He is not racial or biased against any people and he states that time and again. THEY HAVE NO ONE ELSE TO TAKE THEIR RADIAL ACTIONS APART. I thank God for his insightfulness and his boldness. America needs more like Tucker Carlson.

  4. I doubt if Fox would ever drop Tucker Carlson. He just added an early show on Fox Nation. He has the best ratings of all their Fox News network shows. The Anti-Defamation League was supposedly created to support persons of the Jewish faith or ancestry against verbal attack or foreign machinations. I’ve never heard him attack Israel or the Jewish people. But if he feels someone is wrong, he will say so.

  5. IF Tucker leaves FOX, I believe that FOX will go the way of ABC.
    Maybe he will go to NEWSMAX, then I would have no reason to flip to FOX.

  6. ADL go after Maxine Water’s she is the problem not an honest Journalist like Tucker Carlson. Go after The Communist News Network with the fake News and the edit the film network’s.

  7. All needs to go away or start getting up in arms about waters, Talib, Omar the anti semitic bu ch of losers. Tucker is one of the very few with guts to call these creeps what they are, communist anti-americans.

  8. If Fox decides to fire Calrson for being an honest journalist the Fox News channel is dead meat on the liberal butcher shop slimy floor. Bye, Bye Fox News

  9. Tucker is the only show on Fox that i watch. all the others are not worth it. newsmax and OAN are the places I go for the real news. Keep the faith. tucker will survive as will others that have meaningful shows.

    If you don’t like
    Donald Trump
    then you probably won’t
    like me and I’m OK with that.

  10. I agree with all of the comments. If Fox ends Tucker Carlson, Hannity and Laura Ingram, and others Greg Gutfeld and Shannon I will quite Fox News. Do not do this to your viewers. They tell truth not lies.

  11. Get off his back and walk awhile, he makes u guys look like the liars u are. He’ll never go anywhere cause there would be rioting like u have. Not seen. Hs a largest following on tv. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
