Fox News' Tucker Carlson Calls Iraqis "Semiliterate Primitive Monkeys" in Surfaced Recording

Tucker Carlson host of Surfaced Audio Shows Carlson In Misogynistic Rants
Jeannette Daniel | 14 March, 2019, 12:40

Newly released recordings of Tucker Carlson - the third set made public in as many days - feature the prominent Fox News host joking about having sex with a teenage beauty pageant contestant.

As the Fox News host remained neither apologetic or remorseful, Media Matters published additional transcripts of the conservative TV host, in which he can be heard using racist and homophobic language to rail against African-Americans, gay people, immigrants, Iraqi people and the Obama family, while calling into the "shock jock" show for about an hour per week between 2006 and 2011.

Carlson responded to the audio releases with his own tweet this week.

"She's like, she's vulnerable". "If you had a wife that dumb, would it be good or bad?" he asked.

Carlson later says, "I was thinking about tapping my foot next to her stall" - an apparent reference to a code to express a desire for sex.

And now people's calls for advertisers to cut ties with Carlson and his Fox News show appear to be working. "Fox News is behind us", he said on the show. "I had some very dark moments where I thought about committing suicide", she said. "Anyone who disagrees with my views is welcome to come on and explain why".

The heat on Fox News comes as the network ramps up its efforts to court advertisers and alleviate concerns about recent controversies, which also include comments by host Jeanine Pirro that questioned the patriotism of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) because she wears a hijab. In other clips, Carlson described women as "extremely primitive" and suggested that illegal marriages between adults and underage girls were not as serious as forced child rape and that he would "love" a scenario involving young girls experimenting sexually.

On Tuesday, Carlson praised Fox News for supporting him and stood by his refusal to apologize, vowing "we will never bow to the mob ー ever".

Tucker Carlson: "Iraq is a crappy place filled with a bunch of, you know, semiliterate, primitive monkeys".

But Carlson's strategy of no apology and no backing down is all part of the "Fox News brand", Aidan McLaughlin, the managing editor of Mediaite, told Cheddar on Wednesday.
