The left’s playbook for starting a war with the right was opened wide recently by a former FOX News chief political correspondent who is calling for serious repercussions against Tucker Carlson.
Carlson has become one of the network’s hottest draws with his unflinching attacks on the Biden administration and woke leftists who are attempting to flood the United States with Third World immigrants with a “right” to vote.
Carl Cameron, a former FOX correspondent who has been reduced to appearing on CNN, told that network’s Jim Acosta on May 21 that Carlson’s broadcasts are the same as falsely shouting fire in a crowded movie theater, reports DailyMail.com.
The “crowded movie theater” metaphor, coined by Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., refers to sparking a panic with free speech by telling people their lives are in immediate danger. Cameron was referring to a May 14 shooting in Buffalo, N.Y. shooting which was reportedly inspired by the “Great Replacement Theory,” that non-white immigration is a leftist plot to alter the cultural landscape of the United States.
Leftists in fact heavily and damagingly support unrestricted migration into the United States by non-white non-Americans from virtually every country in the world.
“The fact of the matter is, if you disturb the peace by starting a riot in a movie theater, cops are going to arrest you and you might end up in jail or you might end up in something worse,” Cameron threatened darkly, trying to pin the violence on Carlson’s reporting on leftist policies instead of on the policies themselves.
“The president has to be more forceful and sooner or later the law enforcement and the U.S. government is going to have to stop the lying because it’s causing people’s deaths,” he said.
Cameron went on to imply that non-Americans are spreading rancor against leftist policies.
“It’s not just FOX, it’s social media in general. It’s on the internet. And we have to remember that a good portion of what we read is coming from folks who aren’t Americans, pretending to be Americans in order to gaslight them even worse.”
Cameron first began criticizing FOX, his former employer, in 2019 after the departure of melodramatic anchorman Shepherd Smith.
The network responded with a statement alleging that Cameron was unable to show up for work on a regular basis during his “multitude of personal struggles,” according to Mediaite.
