“[Media Matters] released the first audio of Carlson on Sunday. In that, Carlson called rape shield laws “totally unfair” and was adamantly supportive of Warren Jeffs, the former leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who is serving a life sentence for child rape. Carlson also said he would “love” a scenario involving young girls sexually experimenting and described women as “extremely primitive.”
The next day, Media Matters for America released another audio file just moments after Carlson’s show began. In that, Carlson said that white men deserve credit for “creating civilization,” called Iraqis a bunch of “semiliterate primitive monkeys,” and spoke about his desire for a presidential candidate to blame the “lunatic Muslims who are behaving like animals.””Tucker Carlson says he’s the victim of a powerful bully. Meet the 24-year-old who found the tapes. [Washington Post]
Side note: I recall posting Media Matters YouTube videos on my Facebook account all the way back in 2007. We’ve been dealing with the bullshit that Fox News creates for far too long.
