Tucker Carlson Says Ex-Writer Blake Neff’s Racist Posts Were ‘Wrong,’ But Attacks ‘Ghouls’ Over ‘Destruction of a Young Man’

Tucker Carlson announced Monday night (July 13, 2020) in the same hour that he was forced to address his now-former staffer’s racist and sexist message board posts, that he was going on a planned vacation. Beginning tomorrow.

Hmm.

The controversial commentator closed out his show Monday with a temporary farewell, saying he was going off the air for a “long-planned” vacation to do some “trout fishing” and will return next Monday.

Carlson’s announcement Monday night followed his first public acknowledgment of the firing of his show’s top writer, Blake Neff, Friday after his bigoted blog posts were revealed by CNN.

“First, what Blake wrote anonymously was wrong. We don’t endorse those words. They have no connection to this show. It is wrong to attack people for qualities they cannot control,” Carlson said.

“In this country, we judge people for what they do, not for how they were born. We often say that, because we mean it. We will continue to defend that principle, often alone among national news programs, because it is essential. Nothing is more important.”

“Blake was horrified by the story,” Tucker says, as though Neff didn’t write the racist/sexist posts himself. He was horrifed that he was outed as a horrible racist.

“We don’t endorse those words. They have no connection to the show,” Carlson claimed. This is despite the obvious fact Neff’s posts were repeatedly echoed in his show’s scripts.

Carlson then lashed out at Neff’s critics. “Blake fell short of that standard and he has paid a very heavy price for it. But we should also point out, to the ghouls now beating their chests in triumph at the destruction of a young man, that self-righteousness also has its costs,” Carlson said.

“We are all human. When we pretend we are holy, we are lying. When we pose as blameless in order to hurt other people, we are committing the gravest sin of all. And we will be punished for it. There’s no question.”

What? He’s blaming the media and those who have rightfully called out Neff for being racists for calling Neff out on it? No Tucker, we don’t have to feel sorry for the racist because he was caught.
