Some Advertisers I'll be letting know I'm done with...

#1 Post by AJMD429 » Tue Dec 18, 2018 5:58 pm

As of today, at least 13 advertisers have abandoned Tucker Carlson's primetime show over comments the Fox News host made about immigration. (The Wrap)

As of Tuesday morning, Just For Men, ScotteVest, Voya Financial, Zenni Optical, Pacific Life, Indeed, Bowflex, SmileDirectClub, NerdWallet, Minted, Ancestry.com, and IHOP Jaguar had all told TheWrap they plan to suspend advertising on the program.

On Tuesday a spokesman for Just For Men told TheWrap in a statement: “Just For Men has no further plans to advertise on Tucker Carlson’s show. The brand is always considering ways to remain responsible, and this includes aligning with partners who share our brand values.”

On Monday, Carlson addressed the growing boycott campaign against his sponsors over his on-air remarks about immigration, telling viewers that he would not be intimidated.

“You’ve seen it a million times, it happens all the time,” he said. “The enforcers scream ‘racist’ on Twitter, until everyone gets intimidated and changes the subject to the Russia investigation or some other distraction. It’s a tactic, a well worn one. And it won’t work with the show, we’re not intimidated. We plan to say what’s true until the last day.”


However, pressure continues to mount with each defection as left-wing advocacy groups like Media Matters stay on the offensive via social media.

The controversy ignited when Carlson said that immigrants had made the United States "poorer and dirtier and more divided."

Fox News said it would stand by Carlson.

Poor - of course....if they had plenty of pesos they would not come here.

Dirty - it you hitchhike from there to here without a bath you might be dirty.

Divisive - 60 + % of americans are against illegal migration 35 to 37 % are ok with it/them. We are divided.

I'm not a fan of Mr. Carlson, but I agree with his statement on these points:

Poorer - Providing for them and their offspring, food, shelter, housing, utilities, education and legal representation for multiple generations is costing the U.S. taxpayers hundreds of BILLIONS of dollars. The average U.S. taxpayer pays over $8k a year to support illegal immigrants and for the affects from illegal immigration. Yes... EVERY American is poorer because of illegal immigration.

Dirtier - Illegal immigrants are bringing diseases back into the this country from their third-world chitholes that were eliminated from our population many decades ago. So long ago that some people stopped immunizing their school aged children because they didn't believe that there was any continuing danger.

More DIvided - Not only are the liberals/progressives/Marxists/communists in the general population all in for open borders, but their political machine permitted so many illegal aliens to drop anchor-spawn on this side of the border and proclaimed them "citizens" by non-existent birthright that there has been a quantum shift in that demographic which favors ignoring long established immigration law.

:evil:
Government office attracts the power-mad, yet it's people who just want to be left alone to live life on their own terms who are considered dangerous.
