Fiery conservative commentator Tucker Carlson has never had a problem speaking his mind. For better or for worse, the Fox News host’s public opinions are unfiltered and raw, which contributes to his sizable following.

Given Carlson’s unabashed approach to sociopolitical discourse, he has made his fair share of leftist rivals. Sometimes, as is the case with CNN, those leftists have no discernible comeback other than to mock him.

Other leftists, however, have taken to aiming for Carlson’s wallet when he says something that might hurt their feeling. Carlson is facing the wrath of leftists over a comment he made on his show while decrying rampant and unchecked immigration into America.

Tucker Carslon responded on Monday night that he is “not intimidated” by the backlash and stands by what he said last week.. “That’s what we said. It’s true,” Carlson said.

“Those who won’t shut up get silenced. … The enforcers scream ‘Racist!’ on Twitter until everybody gets intimidated and changes the subject to the Russia investigation or some other distraction. It’s a tactic, a well-worn one. Nobody thinks it’s real. And it won’t work with this show. We’re not intimidated. We plan to try to say what’s true until the last day.”

Here’s the complete list of companies boycotting Carlson’s show:

  • Pacific Life
  • Bowflex
  • Indeed
  • Minted
  • NerdWallet
  • SmileDirectClub
  • Voya
  • Ancestry
  • Land Rover
  • Zenni
  • IHOP
  • Just for Men
  • United Explorer
  • ScotteVest
  • TD Ameritrade
  • CareerBuilder

CareerBuilder said in a statement it would advertise on programming that aligns “with who we are and what we value.”

Bowflex said that along with pulling its ads, it has “no other association or affiliation with Mr. Carlson.”

The Post explained Carlson was “rapidly losing advertisers over his comments.”

Last week on his show he said Americans are being told, “We have a moral obligation to admit the world’s poor, they tell us, even if it makes our own country poorer and dirtier and more divided.”

He said regarding some of the foreigners trying enter the country illegally: “Huddled masses yearning to breathe free? Nope, cynical shakedown artists who have been watching too much CNN.”

While the Post described the reaction as a widespread backlash, Carlson has the support of his own network as well as many of his major advertisers.

“It is a shame that left wing advocacy groups, under the guise of being supposed ‘media watchdogs,’ weaponize social media against companies in an effort to stifle free speech,” a Fox News spokesman said. “We continue to stand by and work with our advertisers through these unfortunate and unnecessary distractions.”

The network also vowed it would not “allow voices like Tucker Carlson to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts from the likes of Moveon.org, Media Matters and Sleeping Giants.”

“Attempts were made last month to bully and terrorize Tucker and his family at their home. He is now once again being threatened via Twitter by far left activist groups with deeply political motives,” the network said. “While we do not advocate boycotts, these same groups never target other broadcasters and operate under a grossly hypocritical double standard given their intolerance to all opposing points of view.”

The Washington Times reported major firms such as Farmer’s Insurance, Mitsubishi and John Deere blew off demands from activists to censor Carlson.

“In a statement to the Daily Beast, Farmers Insurance said it ‘invests in advertising across a broad range of networks and programs that reflect the diversity of opinions and viewpoints found across the nation,’” the report said.

Mitsubishi said demographics and psychographics drive its advertising strategies, “not politics.”

Bayer, the German pharmaceutical conglomerate, said: “Opinions or views expressed by the network’s news programs or their hosts are solely those of the network, and do not necessarily reflect those of Bayer. Given the wide diversity of media today and wide range of public opinion on any given issue, it would be an impossible task to find a major television or radio network whose entire programming schedule appeals to all audiences.”

And the Associated Press reported many of the companies that boycotted Carlson placed their ads elsewhere on Fox News, “meaning the network is under no broad pressure.”

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, one of the biggest advertiser for Carlson’s show, said, “I make all of my advertising decisions based on what is best for MyPillow, my customers and my employees.”

Some of the advertisers who have boycotted are re-evaluating, including Pacific Life and NerdWallet.

The job-search company Indeed said it withdrew its advertising before the controversy arose.

      PUSSY Trump just announced that he will pull ALL US troops out of Syria and cancel US sanctions on two Russian companies—just what Vladimir Putin wants. Why do you suppose PUSSY Trump is doing it? Pussy Trump is Putin’s puppy dog.

        Which is it? People on the left are always claiming they hate war and we should not be in worldwide conflicts. Then when the Predident pulls out of Syria it’s bad thing. Besides that there serms to be a preoccupation with fenale reproductive parts. From the unintelligent immature comments above it apears that some one has the mentality of some one who just left that canal. Just saying.

They are doing nothing for America and drawing those pay checks and benefits that they are not worth.. I for one will boycott all companies who have pulled their advertisements. The left better get their head out of the butt and start doing what is right for America not themselves.. WE NEED AND WANT THE DAM WALL..

        It seems to me that the Left has a perverse infatuation with the female anatomy. I think they are all a bunch of kinky, sociopedophiles that try to project their shortcomings on others to make themselves feel better. Such a sad group

          Amen. Let the European countries that don’t pay their share of NATO worry about Syria. After all, that sorry country is closer to them than to us. If they want to kill each other off over there it suits me just fine.

    Hmmm

    So its all OK to “boycott” Tucker Carlson, but its not alright to boycott the state of israel. The last time I looked Tucker was not committing war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide and Apartheid like israel. Nor has he committed killed hundreds of women and children while wounding more than 20,000 who are held captive behind prison walls for committing the sin of not being Jewish…..

    I like and respect Tucker Carson. I don’t always agree with him, but I respect his right to exercise his Constitutional and God given right to free speech. These are rights the anti-BDS movement supporters clearly do not believe belong to every American, just the ones that think like them. TNaturally, I have no doubt that there are many of these anti-BDSer’s who firmly believe in their right to institute boycotts of Tucker screaming for his head…..

    I think it is great that the network isn’t folding on Carlson, and it is AWESOME that Carlson didn’t come back the next day whining an apology !
    It is about time someone had the balls to say something and stand strong by what they said , regardless of the whiny bitches who haven’t yet realized we have too many fanatically politically correct people raising more pussy psycho overly politically correct people who are tragically damaging our youth and our country !

    Well, I used to eat at IHOP but haven’t been to one in 8 years, so won’t ever go back. Zenni Optical is the only one I’ve used recently, and it’s been nearly 2 years since I’ve ordered a custom pair of glasses from them for my hubby. I’ll just go to one of their competitors, for the next time he needs a pair. Pacific Life… been 9 years since I’ve had to deal with them, when my mother’s life insurance policy got cashed out, after she died in 2004, and the family trust was liquidated upon my father’s death and probate of his death. Will NEVER deal with them again. The rest… haven’t done business with any of them, and never will.

    We support and watch Tucker all the time. The only sponsor dropping him that we do business with is IHop and we have only been there twice in the last few years as they are too expensive. So guess we won’t be going back! Tucker did NOT say anything wrong, so their leaving his program is their loss. We have NO OBLIGATION to admit these people to our country and DO NOT support any of these ‘invaders’ being admitted.

    Don’t need those companies anyway, and don’t knowingly patronize them either. Fox is the #1 cable show on television with more people watching than all the other cable news networks. Seems they would think twice about pulling out.

    The support base for Tucker Carlson’s Show is much larger than your list of Hypocritical Companies boycotting his show. He told the truth the Immigration flow of Illegals into America must be stopped. I haven’t seen a list of these companies supporting the American Homeless or the Veterans, in fact I haven’t seen them providing any support for Immigration. Why do you hypocrites think its the responsibility of the American Tax Payers to support Immigrants before Americans?

    It’s amazing to me that every word by any conservative is examined , and scrutinized. Even more amazing is the hatred spewed 24/7 about Trump and any associate of his is ok and they go on and on and it is so wrong and so disgusting, Every day there are below the belt crude remarks that seem like they come from children. Out and out lies. Tucker was telling the truth. What’s wrong with that ??? Thanks Tucker for not backing down. THAT IS THE PROBLEM.

ALL of those turds who are wanting “caravan invasions” into OUR country, work in places other than their own little world. ALL of the turds wanting to give away YOUR money are sucking up all the money they can for themselves. Do you really think that a salary of $174,000 can amass a multi million dollar fortune???? ALL of the turds that are “regulating” OUR lives live their own life style without any regulations interrupting their “style”. WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA.
