Tucker Carlson says ‘press censorship’ in America is at an all-time high

Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Tuesday that “press censorship” in America is at an all-time high — and tragically, he doesn’t see the situation improving any time soon.

Speaking on his self-titled Fox program, Carlson said Tuesday that efforts to suppress conservative voices can be seen “all around you.”

“Never in American history has there been press censorship on this scale,” he said, according to a transcript from Breitbart. “As we noted at the top, Fox News is the last significant media organization remaining in this country that allows its employees to tell obvious truths in public.

“The rest of them have been muzzled or shut down completely,” Carlson added.

“Its own chapter”

Carlson particularly focused his attention on a relatively new social media platform known as Parler. According to the Fox host, Parler “was created as a free-speech alternative to the Silicon Valley monopolies like Twitter and Facebook.”

But “a few weeks ago, those very same monopolies pulled it right off the internet. Parler no longer exists,” Carlson said, referring to a move by Amazon Web Services to force the platform offline.

“When the history of this period is written, the destruction of Parler will get its own chapter, and so will these people. The mindless corporate shills who applauded its destruction,” Carlson said Tuesday, according to Breitbart.

“Believe what they tell you to”

Indeed, one commentator highlighted by Carlson complained that “Parler has zero moderation. The whole point is that this is a completely free community that you can say what you want,” they reportedly said, calling content on the platform “remarkable garbage.”

To Carlson, it was just further evidence that Big Tech and others on the left want to silence conservative voices at any cost. “Equity and inclusion means that you will believe what they tell you to believe. Period,” he charged Tuesday, according to Breitbart.

The Fox host’s remarks invoked a sentiment that has echoed across the right since Parler was first targeted in the wake of an attack on the U.S. Capitol earlier this month — namely, that the riot, though egregious, shouldn’t be used as an excuse to stifle free speech.

“When you start suppressing speech, first of all, it’s dictatorial,” Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) said earlier this month, according to Fox. “Second, it violates our constitutional right. But the third thing I would say is it causes people to go underground, and as people go underground…you get more conspiracy type theories involved.”

Biggs went on: “The way they’re doing this, they’re going to prevent discussions that make us all progress and solve issues. Instead, they’re going to foment more problems, more discord by doing this. My opinion, they’re trying to create a single party system, and that’s wrong.”

  1. Sue them for publishing fake news. They have become the national inquirer and this is unacceptable. Hold these democriminal owned and run propaganda machines accountable. Honesty in journalism is a must or put them out of business.

  3. I don’t know the answer but if someone, i.e. a leader, doesn’t step up soon our country is lost. I am starting to think President Trump was our best hope but maybe someone will rise to the occasion. God help us!

  4. Unfortunately plans were already in place before Thrump was elected. He was on the way to perhaps finally getting America great again. He and his family were hounded, blacklisted from . media, Democrats, constantly for 4 years. The only thing on their minds then and now is destruction. What a shame for so much hate.

  5. So the honest news by Carlson, the democrats couldn’t handle it, so they eliminated Parlor.
    There will be other ways to get the truth out.

  6. this felonious ,corruption will be swept under the table ,just like everything else the big tech-democrat- big business – corrupt politicians are getting away with, where are the once impeccable federal agents ? WHERE? Are there any out there, please STEP UP and protect the honest every day patriots of this nation

  7. If you want your words or whatever you want to share to be heard, PRAY! Our Lord told us in Chronicles 7:14 if MY people , who are called by MY name, shall humble theselves and seek MY face and turn from their wicked ways, then will “I” hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Tell HIM what needs saying and HE will get the message out to the right people or HE will deal with the problem. America was founded on God’s Holy Word, HE loves America and her people. God sent President Trump to us and HE will see to it that President Trump has his 2nd term for us!!!! Talk with our Creator and let the news agencies go broke for lack of news. All they will have is their lies.
