This week, “conservative” news outlet Fox News fired one of its top hosts. Despite being a major draw for the network, it axed Tucker Carlson. Many people have speculated on why they would do such an idiotic thing. Some think it has something to do with painful lawsuits hammering the company. Others suggest Rupert Murdoch was weirded out by Carlson’s religious faith.
Regardless, the company is already suffering a ratings drop after the news broke. For his part, Carlson has been silent on what happened behind the scenes. He was seen in public later that week, joking as we went to dinner with his wife. And now, he is breaking his silence for the first time since Fox dumped him.
Tucker Carlson broke his silence Wednesday evening, just two days after leaving Fox News…
“One of the first things you realize when you step outside the noise for a few days is how many genuinely nice people there are in this country, kind of decent people, people who really care about what’s true and a bunch of hilarious people…
“…the United States looks very much like a one party state. That’s a depressing realization. But it’s not permanent. Our current orthodoxies won’t last. They’re brain dead, nobody actually believes them. Hardly anyone’s life is improved by them…
“True things prevail. Where can you still find American saying true things? There are many places left but there are some and that’s enough. As long as you can hear the words there is hope. See you soon.” [Source: The Post Millennial]

Carlson posted a 2-minute video to his Twitter account, which quickly went viral. He did not mention his parting with Fox News. However, he spoke about stepping “outside the noise” referring to his life in the news media.
He praised regular Americans for being “genuinely nice” and even “hilarious.” Tucker went on to blast the deliberate attempts by both parties to distract from the real issues that are affecting our world. He blamed the media for spending so much time on things we’ll forget about “in five years.”
Then he offered hope. He said that when “honest people say what’s true calmly and without embarrassment, they become powerful.” Carlson went on to promise that “true things prevail.” He appeared to drop a hint about his future.
He didn’t mention a new show or where he’ll end up. But he did say “see you soon,” suggesting he plans on doing something in the near future. Carlson is likely to launch something at a place where “Americans are saying true things.”
Does he intend to launch a show on a conservative platform like The Blaze or Daily Wire? Does he intend to build his own online media empire? We have no idea. But we do know we have not seen the last of Carlson.
