Pride in America: Tucker Carlson

Pride in America: Tucker Carlson

Wayne Hoffman
June 5, 2023

Welcome to Pride in America Month. Every day in the month of June and through Independence Day, we will be highlighting a figure who has demonstrated and defended American values. Consider it a healthy alternative to the Left's June celebration that has taken over the media and corporate America.

If there's a recent example of an American who stands for conservative ideas and was fired for expressing his opinions, it's Tucker Carlson, the former Fox News anchor who is now on Twitter.

Tucker has spent the past several years fearlessly addressing topics that the leftist media avoids. He asked tough questions about the Left's agenda, their attacks on our children and culture, the dysfunctional bureaucracy in Washington, D.C., the flaws in United States' foreign policies and its involvement in endless wars, and, of course, the Covid policies, lockdowns, and mandates.

Carlson embarked on his media career in the 1990s, writing for The Weekly Standard and other publications. He later transitioned to television, hosting various shows on CNN and MSNBC. In 2016, he joined Fox News, where he swiftly gained immense popularity as one of the network's most prominent hosts. However, in March, he was abruptly and summarily dismissed from his position without any prior notice.

It’s been a pleasure to see Tucker challenge establishment institutions and to see him raise issues that no one else in the media were willing to bring up, including America’s participation in the war in Ukraine and the assassination of JFK. His objective was simply to ensure that people could see and understand the truth behind what’s really going on in politics and public policy, so that Americans could use what they learned to make informed decisions. 

The other thing that gets said a lot about Tucker Carlson, and was said a great deal after his dismissal from Fox, is that he’s one of the nicest people in the media. People often tell stories about how Tucker would go out of his way to offer kind words to people who have been mistreated or downtrodden, how he’d lend a hand or a phone call at just the right time, all without seeking attention or credit. It was just part of who he is. He is the very embodiment of the reason why our Constitution has a First Amendment protecting the press, and and he exemplifies the American spirit.

He’s also emblematic of American resilience, having survived his firing and finding a new audience on Twitter. If the folks at Fox thought they’d be able to cancel him and keep him from spreading conservative messages, they were wrong.

Do you have a great American who deserves to be celebrated this month? Let us know!
