Tucker Denies Being A Nazi Despite All Evidence Indicating He Is A Lying Nazi... Could He Be lying like The Nazis?

Tucker claims not be a Nazi but evidence seems to suggest otherwise (clearly Tucker is lying... which Nazis are known to do). The following are proofs that Tucker is probably lying about his Nazihood...

Tucker defends white supremacists...

Tucker Carlson says it's unfair to call the Portland attacker a white supremacist 
Carlson: This is "hardly the behavior of a coherent white supremacist," but "fake civil rights groups" like the SPLC "jumped onboard immediately"

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): As you may have heard, over the weekend, a deranged man in the state of Oregon called Jeremy Christian began berating Muslims on a train, and when three men approached to intervene, he stabbed two of them to death. It was an atrocity, but it was only the first of many in the story.
Almost immediately after it happened, the press scrambled to define what exactly had happened. Right wing, white supremacist commits murder, provoked by Trump's climate of hate, or maybe climate of fear, maybe both.
Fake civil rights groups like the Center for Islamic Relations and the Southnern Poverty Law Center jumped onboard immediately, blaming President Trump's rhetoric.
The accused killer was not a Trump voter, he actually backed Jill Stein and Bernie Sanders in the 2016 race and indeed called for violent attacks on Trump supporters during the election. A video from the day before the stabbing shows him denouncing not just Muslims, but also, Jews and Christians. And in a Facebook posting from last June, he attacked Hillary Clinton for allegedly keeping Honduran refugees out of this country. Hardly the behavior of a coherent white supremacist.
At the alt-right rally, supposedly attended in April, he was apparently there to pick fights with everyone, whether they loved trump or hated him. Once you dig a little, you find this guy wasn't a right-winger, but an unstable maniac who hated almost everybody, and maybe inevitably was going to lash out at some point, but don't tell that tot the media, though. Like progressives everywhere, they see racists under every bed.

Same pattern has been used before to protect white supremacists and right wing terrorists by Fox...

IN THE NAME OF THE FODDER 7/27/2011 The Fox News rapid-response team distinguishes violence in the name of a religion from the practitioners of that religion -- as long as it's Christianity.

Others have noticed Tuck's Nazi-like tendencies as well...

Fox analyst compares Tucker Carlson to Nazi sympathizer as the Fox host defends Putin-  Ralph Peters: "You sound like Charles Lindbergh in 1938 saying, "Hitler hasn't attacked us." 

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): It's hard to see why -- I'm not vouching for Putin's character, he seems like a shady guy, a strong man for sure. Wouldn't want to live there.
RALPH PETERS (GUEST): He's a killer.
TUCKER CARLSON:  Hard to see why he's a threat to us. How many wars can we fight at once? And how many people can we be in opposition to at once? Why not just accept that people who are bad people share our interest and side with them? 
RALPH PETERS: You sound like Charles Lindbergh in 1938 saying, "Hitler hasn't attacked us."
TUCKER CARLSON: I beg your pardon? Slow down. Slow down, Colonel. You cannot compare me to somebody who makes apologies for Hitler. And I don't think Putin is comparable to Hitler. I think it's a grotesque overstatement, actually. It's insane.
RALPH PETERS: I think Putin is -- fine, you can think it's insane all you want. 
TUCKER CARLSON: You Just up compared me to a Nazi apologist because I asked a simple question. Which is, - slow down, slow down - which is, why does it contravene American interest to the common cause with a group that's trying to kill ISIS? 
RALPH PETERS: Because Vladamir Putin invaded his neighbors, broke the long peace in Europe, he assassinates dissidents and journalists, he bombs women and children on purpose in Syria, he is as bad as Hitler. And I am sorry if you don't like the Charles Lindbergh thing, I will retract that.

An example of Tucker going after Gypsies like the Nazis did...


Conservative media outlets stoke fears that “gypsies” are coming to America and defecating in the streets

Tucker Carlson: “There are a lot of news stories … where groups of Roma settle in a new community and then defecate on playgrounds or sidewalks or on their front steps.” In a July 17 segment on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight, host Tucker Carlson hyped reports that “integration is not going well” for Roma asylum-seekers in Pennsylvania, claiming the community has “little regard either for the law or public decency.” After claiming “there are a lot of news stories about this from around the world -- where groups of Roma settle in a new community and then defecate on playgrounds or sidewalks or on their front steps,” Tucker argued, “This seems to me like a hostile act”:

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Well, in the last two months, several dozen Roma, more commonly known as "Gypsies" have been settled in California, Pennsylvania by the federal government. The Roma are seeking asylum saying they suffered racism in their native Romania. Integration is not going well. According to residents, they have little regard either for the law or public decency. Citizens say they defecate in public, chop the heads off chickens, leave trash everywhere and more.
I've spent time around the Roma and I've never heard anybody say they were violent, so that seems right to me. But I have heard a lot of people mention, and I'm just -- I hate to say it, but public defecation, there are a lot of news stories about this from around the world -- I'm serious, going back a long time in the U.K. and here where groups of Roma settle in a new community and then defecate on playgrounds, or sidewalks, or on their front steps. That seems to me a hostile act. Basically what you're saying --these are countries that have indoor plumbing, like, there are options. When you do that, you are saying "We reject you, and your mores."
GEORGE ELI: I've never witnessed any of my family do such a thing, and the way you're making it sound, with all due respect, or the way the papers are making it sound, is like they are doing it in protest, if, in fact, it's happening. I know things -- I'm here to talk about --
CARLSON: Well, lots of people over a number of different years -- I mean, there are photographs of it actually online. [Fox News, Tucker Carlson Tonight7/17/17]

Tucker Carlson: Europeans coming to America led to "freedom and happiness" and "far less human sacrifice and cannibalism" Carlson calls Alaska's bill changing Columbus Day to "Indigenous People's Day" an "attack on civilization"

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Christopher Columbus has been ceremonially deported from the state of Alaska. Under a new bill signed by the Alaska governor Bill Walker. Columbus Day will henceforth be known as "Indigenous People's Day." Alaska joins California, Tennessee, and South Dakota in refusing to commemorate the discovery of the New World by Europeans. Why? Well it's an apology of sorts, obviously. The message is "it would have been better if Europeans had never come here at all." Well, that's not just absurd, it's literally an attack on civilization. Things are, in fact, better on this continent than they were 700 years ago in case democracy and penicillin and the internal combustion engine didn't make that obvious. The upstart nations of the new world, in particular this country, the U.S., played a key role in creating a better and freer world, while helping to liberate the old world from despotism, fascism and communism. There's more human freedom and happiness, far less human sacrifice and cannibalism. That's all an achievement, we ought to celebrate it, not mourn it, obviously.

Compare the above to these definitions;

Nazism Definition 1: An aggressive political and militaristic form of government including the use of international deceit and expansionism, the arbitrary suspension of the rule of law, and arbitrary eugenics or genocide.
Fascism & Nazism go together;

Fascism definition: A form of government which is authoritarian, oppressively conservative, who believe in the supremacy of the stated national group, and which, at least initially, purports to vest law-making and administrative authority in the hands of workers or their organizations.

According to Hawkesworth and Krogan, the name originated and derived from Italy, under Benito Mussolini. fascio in Italian means "union" and became the nickname of radical union groups then forming in Milan, circa 1919, and elsewhere in Italy.

However, Bogdanor’s theory is that the name came from ancient Rome. A fasces was an ornament used during official hearing ands it symbolized unity and authority.x

Tucker Carlson teams with hate group to spread junk science about transgender kids American College of Pediatricians is a small and deceptively named anti-LGBTQ hate group meant to be confused with American Academy of Pediatrics

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson hosted Dr. Michelle Cretella, president of the anti-LGBTQ hate group American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds), on his show to attack transgender children, their parents, and their doctors. During the appearance, Cretella spread anti-transgender junk science and said transgender children are “engag[ing] in magical thinking” and that treating them is “child abuse.”
ACPeds is a small, deceptively named hate group, with only a few hundred members, meant to be confused with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) -- a 60,000-member group comprising “leaders in the professional field.” According to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), ACPeds hides “under the veneer of its professional-sounding name and claims” in order to “defame and discredit LGBT people, often by distorting legitimate research.” ACPeds began when a “small group of anti-LGBT physicians and other healthcare professionals broke away” from AAP after it began supporting the right of same-sex couples to adopt and foster-parent children. ACPeds has been relentless in its claim that it’s dangerous for children to identify as LGBTQ; its blog has suggested that “P for pedophile” should be a part of the LGBT acronym, and the ACPeds president sent a letter to more than 14,000 school district superintendents advocating for conversion therapy and outlining the so-called “health risks” of “claim[ing] a ‘gay’ identity.” Conversion therapy is a dangerous practice that has been “rejected by every mainstream medical and mental health organization for decades.”
On the July 25 edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Cretella spread a series of anti-transgender myths and junk science, including the claim that “transgender ideology is not” “rooted in reality.” Major medical organizations, including the AAP, the American Psychological Association, and the American Medical Association, have affirmed transgender identities. Cretella also made misleading and false claims about hormone treatment for transgender kids, calling it “child abuse” and falsely claiming that “as many as 95 percent” of transgender children will “embrace” their “biological sex” if they are forced to reject their transgender identity. ThinkProgress’ Zack Ford noted that this claim is a debunked myth based on faulty research that “conflated kids who just exhibited gender nonconforming behaviors with those who actually insisted they were a different gender.”
Cretella went on to spread the myth that puberty-blocking treatment for transgender youth is dangerous and akin to “sterilizing children.” But, as Ford wrote, there is no risk of sterilization stemming from taking puberty-suppressing treatments. This treatment delays the onset of puberty, giving transgender people the option of “the lifelong advantage of a body that matches their gender identities without the irreversible body changes of a low voice or beard growth or breasts.” Rob Garofalo, director of the Lurie Children’s Hospital’s Gender and Sex Development Program in Chicago, described the treatment as giving families “the opportunity to hit a pause button, to prevent natal puberty … until we know that that’s either the right or the wrong direction for their particular child” and puberty blockers as “generally a very safe medication.” In 2013, the Endocrine Society, the largest global organization of professionals who research and treat “conditions and diseases related to the human body’s complex system of glands and hormones,” declared that “medical intervention in transgender adolescents appears to be safe and effective.”
According to Ford, it is “technically true that if a young person goes directly from taking puberty-suppressants to cross-sex hormones, they could risk never being able to produce children of their own, but infertility is not guaranteed.” Ford added that ACPeds fails to note that “the only way trans kids could develop fertility is to go through the puberty that they’re specifically trying to avoid” when it pushes this myth. A 2014 study showed that treatment delaying puberty for transgender adolescents “seems to boost psychological well-being for those who ultimately pursue sex reassignment” and gives them the “opportunity to develop into well-functioning young adults.” Though suppressing puberty is a “fully reversible medical intervention,” one study of adolescents being treated with puberty blockers found that all of its participants went on to begin gender reassignment.
Carlson’s segment gave a small anti-LGBTQ hate group masquerading as a legitimate medical association a platform to spread dangerous junk science. And it wasn’t the first time Carlson has legitimized ACPeds’ extremism. On the July 14 edition of his show, Carlson used ACPeds’ hate group designation to attempt to discredit the hate group label, saying that the group was “hardly the Klan.” By failing to differentiate ACPeds from AAP, Carlson manipulated his viewers into believing that these fringe beliefs are part of mainstream medical thought.
From the July 25 edition of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight:

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Michelle Cretella is the president of the American College of Pediatricians. She just wrote a piece in which she says, we're quoting now, "Transgender ideology has infiltrated my field and produced large scale child abuse." Cretella says doctors are encouraging parents to have their kids change genders when there is no evidence these changes are safe or even helpful. Dr. Cretella joins us now. Doctor, thanks a lot for weighing in on this. One of the reasons I wanted to talk to you is this is a field -- I'm not sure what it is -- of social science or medicine that is changing so fast that it's hard to sort of know where we are exactly. And you're in the practice of providing medicine to kids, so I wanted to get your perspective on it. What are you seeing?
MICHELLE CRETELLA: Thank you very much, Tucker. I'm glad to be here. I think it's important to say that everyone on both sides of this issue is concerned about finding loving and helpful solutions for all children.
CARLSON: Yes. I think that's right.
CRETELLA: It -- honestly. We at the American College of Pediatricians, and also I have many colleagues on the left, also insist that those solutions be rooted in reality, and transgender ideology is not. Sex is hard-wired from before birth, and it cannot change. And that's why we had actually called this child abuse, because by feeding children and families these lies, children are having their normal psychological development interrupted. They're even -- they're being put on the puberty blockers, which essentially castrates them chemically, followed by surgical mutilation later on. This is -- this is child abuse. It's not health care.
CARLSON: So, as you know, you will be, if you haven't already, be accused of committing child abuse yourself and of being cruel and unloving and not caring for these kids, of imposing a medieval theology on modern children. How do you respond?
CRETELLA: Right, but as you said at the beginning, this is about science. We -- what is going on now with the puberty blockers, followed by cross-sex hormones, followed by surgeries, has absolutely no track record whatsoever. The loving solution for children who are -- children who are ages 3 to 10, they engage in magical thinking. They don't know the difference so easily between fantasy and reality. We need to nurture them through adolescence, through natural puberty. Our job as parents and physicians is to help children embrace their healthy bodies. And when this is done, once they get past puberty into late adolescence, as many as 95 percent will come to embrace their bodies and identify with their biological sex.
CARLSON: So what happens -- I mean, since this is not just something we're debating as college students, but there are physicians involved who are prescribing drugs -- what do we know about the effects of heavy-duty hormones, synthetic hormones given to little kids, like long-term?
CRETELLA: Right. Well, we don't have long-term studies, which is a major problem. Which is why physicians should not be telling parents that this is settled science and that it is safe. We do know that when puberty blockers are used appropriately in other settings, that we have observed in adults -- for example, they can be used to treat prostate cancer and some gynecologic issues in women -- that there's evidence that you can impact memory and cognitive ability in a negative way. And as far as the cross-sex hormones, if you have a young child on puberty blockers who goes directly to cross-sex or sex change hormones, they become sterile. You are sterilizing children. They can't possibly -- little children cannot possibly understand the risks of having a medication and then never being able to have children in the future.
CARLSON: So what's the young -- I didn't know that, and there's a lot I don't know about this. Again, this is all happening so fast I don't think most people really know what's going on. But what's the youngest age at which kids are getting these kind of drugs?
CRETELLA: The guidelines suggest that puberty blockers be given at ages 11 to 12, but I've had reports from colleagues across the country, and you can also find them in various news reports, that children as young as 9 have been put on these puberty blockers. And what it does, it arrests normal development. Puberty is not a disease. You're stopping them. It's not just a matter of sex characteristics. You're arresting brain development.
CARLSON: No, it's not. There's a lot there.

What Tucker is doing is a standard Nazi tactic going back to the good old Nazi golden age...

How the Nazis Destroyed the First Gay Rights Movement The history of LGBTQ rights is not a record of constant progress.

The first LGBTQ liberation movement
In the 1920s, Berlin had nearly 100 gay and lesbian bars or cafes. Vienna hadabout a dozen gay cafes, clubs and bookstores. In Paris, certain quarters were renowned for open displays of gay and trans nightlife. Even Florence, Italy, had its own gay district, as did many smaller European cities.
Films began depicting sympathetic gay characters. Protests were organized against offensive depictions of LGBTQ people in print or on stage. And media entrepreneurs realized there was a middle-class gay and trans readership to whom they could cater.
Partly driving this new era of tolerance were the doctors and scientists who started looking at homosexuality and “transvestism” (a word of that era that encompassed transgender people) as a natural characteristic with which some were born, and not a “derangement.” The story of Lili Elbe and the first modern sex change, made famous in the recent film “The Danish Girl,” reflected these trends.
For example, Berlin opened its Institute for Sexual Research in 1919, the place where the word “transsexual” was coined, and where people could receive counseling and other services. Its lead doctor, Magnus Hirschfeld, also consulted on the Lili Elbe sex change.
Connected to this institute was an organization called the “Scientific-Humanitarian Committee.” With the motto “justice through science,” this group of scientists and LGBTQ people promoted equal rights, arguing that LGBTQ people were not aberrations of nature.
Most European capitals hosted a branch of the group, which sponsored talks and sought the repeal of Germany’s “Paragraph 175.” Combining with other liberal groups and politicians, it succeeded in influencing a German parliamentary committee to recommend the repeal to the wider government in 1929.
The backlash
While these developments didn’t mean the end of centuries of intolerance, the 1920s and early ‘30s certainly looked like the beginning of the end. On the other hand, the greater “out-ness” of gay and trans people provoked their opponents.
A French reporter, bemoaning the sight of uncloseted LGBTQ people in public, complained, “the contagion … is corrupting every milieu.” The Berlin police grumbled that magazines aimed at gay men – which they called “obscene press materials” – were proliferating. In Vienna, lectures of the “Scientific Humanitarian Committee” might be packed with supporters, but one was attacked by young men hurling stink bombs. A Parisian town councilor in 1933 called it “a moral crisis” that gay people, known as “inverts” at that time, could be seen in public.
“Far be it from me to want to turn to fascism,” the councilor said, “but all the same, we have to agree that in some things those regimes have sometimes done good… One day Hitler and Mussolini woke up and said, ‘Honestly, the scandal has gone on long enough’ … And … the inverts … were chased out of Germany and Italy the very next day.”
The ascent of Fascism
It’s this willingness to make a blood sacrifice of minorities in exchange for “normalcy” or prosperity that has observers drawing uncomfortable comparisons between then and now.
In the 1930s, the Depression spread economic anxiety, while political fights in European parliaments tended to spill outside into actual street fights between Left and Right. Fascist parties offered Europeans a choice of stability at the price of democracy. Tolerance of minorities was destabilizing, they said. Expanding liberties gave “undesirable” people the liberty to undermine security and threaten traditional “moral” culture. Gay and trans people were an obvious target.
What happened next shows the whiplash speed with which the progress of a generation can be thrown into reverse.
The nightmare
One day in May 1933, pristine white-shirted students marched in front of Berlin’s Institute for Sexual Research – that safe haven for LGBTQ people – calling it “Un-German.” Later, a mob hauled out its library to be burned. Later still, its acting head was arrested.
When Nazi leader Adolph Hitler needed to justify arresting and murdering former political allies in 1934, he said they were gay. This fanned anti-gay zealotry by the Gestapo, which opened a special anti-gay branch. During the following year alone, the Gestapo arrested more than 8,500 gay men, quite possibly using a list of names and addresses seized at the Institute for Sexual Research. Not only was Paragraph 175 not erased, as a parliamentary committee had recommended just a few years before, it was amended to be more expansive and punitive.
As the Gestapo spread throughout Europe, it expanded the hunt. In Vienna, it hauled in every gay man on police lists and questioned them, trying to get them to name others. The fortunate ones went to jail. The less fortunate went to Buchenwald and Dachau. In conquered France, Alsace police worked with the Gestapo to arrest at least 200 men and send them to concentration camps. Italy, with a fascist regime obsessed with virility, sent at least 300 gay men to brutal camps during the war period, declaring them “dangerous for the integrity of the race.”
The total number of Europeans arrested for being LGBTQ under fascism is impossible to know because of the lack of reliable records. But a conservative estimate is that there were many tens of thousands to one hundred thousandarrests during the war period alone.
Under these nightmare conditions, far more LGBTQ people in Europe painstakingly hid their genuine sexuality to avoid suspicion, marrying members of the opposite sex, for example. Still, if they had been prominent members of the gay and trans community before the fascists came to power, as Berlin lesbian club owner Lotte Hahm was, it was too late to hide. She was sent to a concentration camp.
In those camps, gay men were marked with a pink triangle. In these places of horror, men with pink triangles were singled out for particular abuse. They were mechanically rapedcastratedfavored for medical experiments and murderedfor guards’ sadistic pleasure even when they were not sentenced for “liquidation.” One gay man attributed his survival to swapping his pink triangle for a red one – indicating he was merely a Communist. They were ostracized and tormented by their fellow inmates, too.

Other notable stories;

Fox's Tucker Carlson says he doesn't know what the term "white nationalist" even means (an obvious lie)

BRAD WOODHOUSE: Tucker what you want to focus on and every conservative commentator has focused on is the text of the speech and not the context of the people who are advising him, who are writing the speech, the people who have white nationalist -- TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): But this is insane! I don't even know what "white nationalist" means and I'm not going to go down that rabbit hole with you now. But I want to address the ideas themselves. If you have a country full of 335 million people who don't share common values, why does that country not break apart? This is something the left and never thinks about, even as it encourages massive immigration into the country, [with] people don't agree with the people who live here. That's not good!

Tucker Carlson: The cost justifies firing thousands of transgender service members

SEAN PATRICK MALONEY (D-NY): What is the reason for taking members of the military who are serving now, thousands of them, with distinction, without a problem, and kicking them out on this basis? What would that reason be? TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Well, I mean the reason is articulated by the people who opposed this is that it’s expensive to pay for the physical transition, the medical transition from one sex to the other. And that that, paying that at a time when the military is scrambling for funds is a distraction from the core mission which is winning wars? So like the onus is on you, since the U.S. military has never had this policy in it’s history to show that paying for sex change operations is going to somehow make us more likely to beat, I don’t know, Al-Qaed

Discrimination against fat people, Latino immigrants (i.e.no desire for northern border) and against family planning;

Tucker Carlson hosts Rep. Steve King who insults obese Americans and calls for a border wall funded by cutting Planned Parenthood King: Forty percent of SNAP recipients are obese so "we've absolutely solved the malnutrition problem, and now we have an obesity problem"

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Speaking of Planned Parenthood, Republicans in Congress still haven't defunded that group despite repeatedly promising to do so back when Obama was president. Maybe several hundred times. Back then the GOP said they would, but they haven't, and they haven't kept their promise to rebuild the wall either. 
So is another broken promise really surprising? That the question Steve King of Iowa has asked himself. He has proposed this: Take away Planned Parenthood's funding and use it to build a border wall, a combination designed to offend Progressives. Does he mean it? He joins us tonight. Congressman thanks a lot for coming on.
 STEVE KING: Thanks for having me on Tucker.
CARLSON: This is like a fever dream in Santa Monica. You are going to take away the Planned Parenthood federal subsidy and use it to build the border wall.
CARLSON: So Republican leadership is not embracing this idea? 
KING: They didn't embrace it right away. But they are a little slow to come to these new ideas.
CARLSON: Kind of weird though. I remember at least a year ago, the leadership was saying we want to build a wall and we want to defund Planned Parenthood. You've provided a way to do both those things simultaneously and yet they are not congratulating you or buying you a beer? 
KING: You would think that they would say "boy, why didn't I think of that, let's do that right away." Another thing on this is at the Planned Parenthood proposal, if we could even get this done, is only for a single year instead of in perpetuity, which is what I prefer. But it's worth half a billion dollars. The Planned Parenthood's government funds run about $554 million a year, and if we would just take that first half a billion out of there, apply it to the wall, and by the way the wall is way overpriced. We can build it for $10 billion or less. I've spent 42 years in the construction business. I'm not interested in building it myself, but we could do that. So there's a start on it. 
And when you look at the rest of this, another thing that caught their attention was the SNAP program, or the food stamp program as we've long known it, and when you look at the numbers of that it's just astonishing. When I came to Congress in 2003, there were 19 million people on food stamps and that number elevated all the way up to 47 million, it's dialed back down to 46 million now. And forty percent of them are obese. And so we addressed the food stamp program under Lyndon Johnson, starting in about 1962, got the program in '65, and back then 13 percent of our population was obese and we were trying to solve the malnutrition problem. well we've absolutely solved the malnutrition problem, and now we have an obesity problem. 

How anti-abortion extremists are using Tucker Carlson's show to cultivate the far right Tucker Carlson is readily providing anti-choice extremists with a platform and a message that appeals to his radical base

When he’s not busy harassing Teen Vogue columnists, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson has made a habit of hosting anti-abortion activists and packaging their misinformation and lies in a way that appeals to his base of “alt-right” extremists and Reddit trolls. 
Since the white nationalists’ golden boy scored a prime-time spot in the Fox News lineup, he has gained a reputation for bullying and insulting his guests, deceptively editing segments, and even booking actors to represent highly curated versions of “opposing viewpoints” to his own. His most recent trick, however, appears to be hosting anti-abortion extremists and giving them a platform to cry “censorship” while simultaneously spreading misinformation about abortion.
Although Carlson is no stranger to hosting anti-abortion guests -- a Media Matters study found that he did so frequently over the span of a year -- his more recent segments have heavily relied on the false proposition that anti-abortion groups or individuals are somehow being censored.
Alleging censorship is a common tactic among anti-abortion activists to rally support and rile up sympathetic right-wing media audiences. And for his part, Carlson appears more than willing to amplify such voices and give them an even larger platform from which they can spread their misinformation to millions. 
For example, on June 26, Carlson hosted anti-choice activist Lila Rose for a segment about Twitter’s alleged censorship of ads by her organization, Live Action. During the segment, Rose argued that Twitter was secretly “blocking the advertisement of pro-life speech” by not allowing Live Action to buy ads on the platform. Rose frequently referenced what she called the “hate and sensitive” policy as the reason for the ads being rejected.
In reality, the so-called “hate and sensitive” policy is Twitter’s “sensitive advertising content policy” -- guidelines that are publicly available and a far cry from being a means of censorship. Despite this, Carlson ramped up his incredulity and further sensationalized Rose’s claims, calling Twitter’s decision “an atrocity” and alleged that Twitter was treating Live Action’s tweets like “hate speech.”
Previously, Rose appeared on the May 31 edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight to promote deceptive footagefrom the discredited anti-abortion group Center for Medical Progress (CMP). Before her appearance, federal Judge William Orrick had barred the release of the footage, and ultimately required all copies of the illicitly spread footage be removed from the internet. Ignoring the substance of these orders, Carlson and Rose alleged the videos had been censored, and attacked Orrick for being biased. At one point, Carlson suggested that the footage should be shared in spite of the court order because “if there was ever a time for civil disobedience, it seems like some might think this would be the time.” 

Tucker exhibits all the behaviors and arguments that a Nazi is expected to use when dealing with eugenics type policies, worshiping dictators or just lying to the people for his Nazi party which is nowadays called "conservatism" but is just Nazi style lies lies repackaged as conservationism.
