Trading Tucker for Shapiru?

That's the rumor swirling around Tucker Carlson's unexpected vacation:
Rumors are swirling that Tucker Carlson’s sudden “vacation” from his Fox News show was actually a suspension, with some even suggesting that Ben Shapiru could ultimately take his place.

Carlson faced a firestorm of criticism following his assertion last week after two mass shootings that paranoia in America over white supremacy was a “hoax” and that the country faced far bigger problems.

He then announced he would be taking a short holiday.

“By the way,” Carlson told viewers on Wednesday last week, “I am taking several days off – headed to the wilderness to fish with my son.”

Fox News claims that Carlson’s vacation had been planned before the contentious remarks and that he will return on August 19.

However, as CNN noted, there is a long history of Fox News hosts taking sudden vacations when they are embroiled in controversies, including Laura Ingraham, Judge Jeanine, Sean Hannity, Jesse Watters and Bill O’Reilly, who never returned.

Numerous high profile individuals at Fox News have also refused to comment on Carlson’s “vacation.”

Journalist Patrick Howley even suggested that Ben Shapiru was being lined up to replace Tucker. “The establishment is determined to move Shapiru into 8 o’clock instead of Tucker, and they figure the conservative movement is too stupid to notice the difference.”
The little guy sold his soul to get on TV, so it's only fair that they give him the chance to publicly flame out in spectacular fashion.

  13. I have to wonder, how long will the radio stations and the syndicator keep pushing Shapiru over Michael Wiener? They are actually losing money every night on the show vs what they were already making on the Savage Nation. Are they going to make it up in volume?
    Similarly with TV, Shapiru is so repellent that it's a guaranteed ratings hit. Are Fox willing to walk away from all that money?

  14. Kind of funny, Tucker got kicked off for saying exactly the same thing as I was doing for today's video, which has been on my mind for some time. The myth of the white supremacist. Although it's definitely cheap photoshop work, I have to admit I'm kind of proud of the cover art.

  19. They're swapping out Tucker with that yapping Jewish chihuahua? Inconceivable!

    I've noticed that even among many conservatives to suggest that racism is just not an issue these days is anathema.

    Everyone of them I've talked to has a story about a relative in a biracial relationship who received sideways glances at the grocery store. Or a family member marrying a black man and grandpa losing his shriveled balls over the affair. Or a black family that had to wait just a little too long to be served at a restaurant. Or some turban-wearing Indian who got called a terrorist by some redneck.

    Truly the most racist society to have ever existed in the history of the world.

  20. I can believe people are too stupid to notice the political differences between Tuck and Benji. But there's no way they miss the difference in vocal pitch/timbre, height, and physiognomy.

  22. Shapiru is on one of the local AM radio stations here, and thankfully I have a choice of channels to listen to. If I have to listen all day, I have to switch around all the time, because I refuse to listen to super cuck Michael Medved, and I really can't stand Sean "constantly repeating monologue" Hannity. The local talent are ten times better than either, and when Shapiru comes on, off goes the radio.
    When it comes to the Seattle market, John Carlson is king, IMO.

    [White] is a social construct

    The word "white" used as a colloquial expression by normal people to describe people with pale skin and some visible amount of No. European ancestry is real.

    But [White] like Vox Day, George Zimmerman, Dr. Sowell, Larry Correia, st all is pure quill make-believe.

    In all fairness to the lefty folks running in terror of said [White] people, they are objectively superior to the progs.

  28. It ought to be pointed out that Tucker ran a pre-taped show last Friday, which is after his vacation started. If he had a pre-taped show prepared to run, it suggests he really was planning on taking time off. Otherwise, Friday would have had a guest host.

  39. "White Supremacy" is a race hoax with no more validity than maga hat guys attacking Smullett.

    There is no significant politics of Whites asserting superiority and pushing for special privileges.

    White identity politics is overwhelmingly defensive.

    If Fox replaces Carlson, then it's an unmistakable signal that the New York City based network is slipping into the cultural Marxist cesspool.

  40. That multiple decades long "can do" attitude and the wet behind the ears look on ShapirĂș is what makes him watchable. He is so dependable and reliable. Never mind the bird face. He is just youthful and impish. He always looks like if he can get over just the next obstacle then he will finally break it into dropping the ball at Times Square on NYE level-cool. And the best kind of cool is unattainable cool. He is so motivated and investigative. He is always looking for a new angle. Totally great journo who is totally moral and watches out for the little guy.

    This shows how money isn't the issue anymore. Only the Narrative.

    Savage is the rare pro-life Jewnicorn who has spoken out against Orthodox Jewish oral circumcision where babies have gotten herpes from the mouth of infected rabbis.

    They've already come after Rush, (even making him deaf) but he survived. Hannity is just who they want as controlled opposition. A true war hawk for the chosen. Tucker is likely out, mainly because his audience keeps growing (just like O'Reilly's was). They don't care how big the audience is if they are not consuming The Narrative.

    Influence is all that matters now. Money is so yesterday.

  54. Fox has started calling universities to arrange a stream of ill prepared dim wits to go up against the great Shapiru in interviews. What is Shapiru's area of expertise? Trans issues? Gender pronouns? A small hat interpretation of Western History? Cant wait!!

    Tucker is a smart guy who can communicate with a lower IQ audience.

    That confused face is the look of a guy watching Count Dankula make his Pug Seig Heil on command, and wondering how the dog understands German.

  57. I welcome the liberation of Tucker Carlson from FOX News. He's better than the network as a whole, as others there are, too.

    I'd much rather see him on Unauthorized.tv or a new venture of his own creation, or something like that.

    Gimme Tucker Unchained, and so forth. To hell with the minders.

    "WHEN EVERYTHING HAPPENED"

    EVERYTHING includes "Woodstock- Stonewall- The Moon"

    EVERYTHING does not include anything you ever did. Because you are NOTHING, you GenEx/Millennial/GenZ.

    The link is relevant to this thread because it's BoomerCons, above all, who would see no difference between Shapiru and Tucker. If they see any difference at all, they will prefer Shapiru because "he's more in favor of free enterprise and personal responsibility." Face it, they always felt uncomfortable with Tucker's "protectionism" and his "race talk." It never quite sounded to them like the conservative principles* of Ronnie ("Amnesty") Reagan.

      As for Tucker, his career will go the way of O'Reilly's and Beck's, if he's no longer on primetime tv. Without . a big megaphone on normie tv, he will no longer be part of the daily conversation. Look how marginalized Rush, Savage, etc. have become. 10 yrs ago, what Rush said was hugely important to the right. Even with both radio & tv no one cares what Hannity says.
      "Conservative" voices are losing prominence day by day.

  77. On "Soph"? I just don't get it.

    I have not watched more than a few seconds of her drivel. She's a little girl, a CHILD, mouthing / repeating / parroting words written for her by, I assume, her parents? Everyone is raving about how smart she is, how she speaks so well about history and sociology and what is going on / wrong... She's -- what's 12?!

    HOW is she different from a dancing dog?! "Oooooh, look, a child speaking illicit concepts!" How is she any different from, say, Shapiru? She's merely protected by her AGE and her SEX, rather than a yarmulka and a 'machine' pushing her in the web ratings?

    And just like Shapiru getting news coverage for being harassed and threatened by antifa at colleges: specifically to elicit sympathy and support; so Soph gets harassed and deplatformed by the web version of antifa? Why are y'all falling for it?

    Little girl LARPing as a wizard as against child-appearing jew wizard!? What's the diff?!

    If Fox goes with him, how hard will they have to work to fake the audience not severely shrinking? Fox is insane like all the rest of the MSM, so I figure they are ready to try this type of crap, but it will not work, not even with Normies, and not even with most Boomers.

    Half truths by you. Rush is more popular than ever, and lots of people still like Hannity.

    Essentially, you are correct though, as both are Gatekeepers, and little by little people are waking up to that fact. Even many people who still believe in them are edging further Right, so they are NOT IN CONTROL OF THE OVERTON WINDOW. They have to go along with the movement to the Right, at least somewhat, to keep up appearances.

    "Conservatism" is dying though, in spite of all the GateKeepers best efforts.

    The main disagreement I have with you is the suggestion that replacing Tucker with BS will not make any difference. It will, and that time slot will suffer a lot. Ben is a GateKeeping Bridge Too Far. It will also expose Fox's insanity to more people.
