Tucker Carlson refuses to apologize after sexist remarks resurface

Tucker Carlson refuses to apologize after sexist remarks resurface

In the years before Carlson became a Fox host, he called into the "Bubba the Love Sponge" radio show and delighted the shock jock by saying all sorts of crude things.

The group released a video in which it compiles comments Tucker made on the Bubba The Love Sponge radio show between 2006 and 2011.

On March 10, after Media Matters for America (MMFA) unearthed clips of Tucker saying more offensive, misogynistic things, it made you wonder how far Fox was willing to go with Tucker.

Carlson responded on Sunday night by saying that Media Matters "caught me saying something naughty".

Carlson, who defended his track record in a tweet, said he wouldn't give the "usual ritual contrition" after his previous comments about women surfaced. He adds that "anyone who disagrees with my views is welcome to come on and explain why".

He described Hillary Clinton as "anti-penis" and said "you look at Hillary and you know in your heart that if she could castrate you, she would". In 2006, he said it "gets women going" when men argue with them. I, I don't use that word because I love for Tucker Carlson tonight on MSNBC I girl that comes across kind of contact, but she does, I mean I heard her, I mean, I know I'm a Brent Fan, so, okay. Media Matters dug up the comments.

On the tapes, the TV host said that Warren Jeffs, who is now serving a life sentence after being convicted of felony child sexual assault for aiding an underage marriage, "is in prison because he's weird and unpopular and he has a different lifestyle that other people find creepy". He referred to Martha Stewart's daughter Alexis Stewart as "c**ty", called journalist Arianna Huffington a "pig", and labeled Britney Spears and Paris Hilton "the biggest white whores in America". What do you mean in accessory? "Why wouldn't the guy who actually did it, who had sex with an underaged girl, he should be the one who's doing life".

"I'm not for child rape", he said. "He's like got some weird religious cult where he thinks it's OK to, you know, marry underaged girls, but he didn't do it".

"I love women, but they're extremely primitive, they're basic, they're not that hard to understand", he said in one segment.

The Fox Newser lost a slew of advertisers from his prime time slot last December for his xenophobic rhetoric and is facing renewed calls for companies to boycott his show. He was on the FBI's 10 most wanted list for arranging child marriages.

"Tucker Carlson is a risky misogynist".

Carlson has faced backlash in recent months after he made controversial comments about women and immigrants on his Fox News show, including saying that immigrants coming to the United States from impoverished regions make the country "poorer and dirtier".
