Tucker Carlson Promises Viewers They’re ‘Not Crazy’ for Continuing to Watch Him
Fox News presenter Tucker Carlson assured viewers on Tuesday evening that they were "not crazy" to keep tuned to his program, and referred to his reviews on Monday night to prove to his audience that they were "not alone" are.
The prime-time conservative presenter, who saw advertisers flee his inflammatory attacks on the Black Justice Matter movement for social justice, kicked off the show on Tuesday with a reference to his long monologue on Monday, in which he saw the increasing popularity and influence of BLM complained.

"We told you what the group was up to with our country when it accumulated unprecedented amounts of power," said Carlson. “The segment lasted 20 minutes. But in the end a lot of people saw it. "
Boasting that the show was the most watched hour on prime time, Carlson went on to say, "We never talk about reviews and we definitely don't tell you to brag about it" before speaking directly to viewers.
"The reason to tell you this is to remind you that you are not alone," he said. "You may feel the way you are. Suddenly your opinions qualify as crimes. Dare to say what you think at work and you will be fired in the middle of a recession. "
After insisting that "many Americans" remain silent out of fear of censorship by "large technology companies", Carlson said that all this was done to "prevent a consensus from building up that challenges those responsible".
"But last night's show suggested they weren't successful even though they tried. Millions and millions of Americans agree with you," he continued. "You're not crazy. Your views aren't bad. What Happening with this country is completely wrong and one day it will be obvious to everyone when our French Revolution is over. ”
Carlson went on to beat up Google for revelations that it had banned extreme right-wing website ZeroHedge from its ad platform for racist content, and threatened to do the same to the conservative digital outlet The Federalist. (NBC News initially reported that The Federalist was also banned before Google issued a clarification requesting NBC to correct and update its report.)
"NBC News has chosen to use some of Google's power to take out some of its competitors," he said, aiming at the NBC News reporter behind the story. "Power is useful for that."
Carlson ended his tirade by targeting a few Republicans - Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) - who, in his view, weren't doing enough to limit Google's power both of them to face the primary challenges in their next election.
