‘Operation Silence-the-Talk-Show Hosts’
March 12, 2021
Fox News host Tucker Carlson fired back at the Pentagon after a number of military leaders berated him for comments he made about Defense Department changes meant to attract more female recruits.
Carlson, who had bashed the changes, rebuked the “woke generals” for their criticism and said he and his supporters were not “rattled.”
Tucker unleashed a full salvo on the military brass:
“We were almost rattled. Then we realized if the woke generals treat us like they’ve treated the Taliban, we’ll be fine. Twenty years later, the Taliban are still here. Maybe we ought to promise the Pentagon that we’ll get rid of traditional gender roles on this show. Change the pronouns, defeat the patriarchy, and all that,” Carlson said on his program Friday night.
