“You are the worst person known to mankind. I want you to know that, ”Mr. Bailey said to Mr. Carlson in Livingston’s store.
Most of their conversations are difficult to decipher. However, Bailey does not seem to hold back his opinion of Carlson. Throughout the meeting, Mr. Carlson referred to Bailey as “son.” He also overheard him telling Mr. Bailey that his daughter was with him.
Mr. Bailey can be heard saying, “What have you done to the families of the people and everyone else …”
The caption to the video read: “It’s not every day that you have to tell someone that they’re the worst person in the world and really do it seriously !! What a shit. “
“This man has killed more people with misinformation about vaccines, he supports extreme racism, he is a fascist and is doing more to tear this country apart than anyone who calls himself American,” the message said.
Tucker Carlson tonight regularly tops the ratings of cable news. On July 21, the channel bypassed CNN’s presidential town hall with President Joe Biden in viewers. Fox News attracted 2.36 million people, while Biden’s Q&A session attracted 1.28 million. Mr Biden used much of his CNN talk to advocate vaccinations and rally against misinformation around the injection.
At the same time it was on the air, Mr Carlson spoke about news channels promoting the Covid-19 vaccine, citing rival CNN and his own Fox News network.
He said, “CNN should have no position on whether or not you should take medication, because this is a news channel, not a health agency.”
It happens the same week that two well-known Fox News anchors, Steve Doucey and Sean Hannity, urged viewers to get vaccinated.
In addition, Mr. Carlson has been repeatedly criticized for using expressions endorsed by white supremacists, such as “replacement theory,” a theory that white people are being “replaced” by other ethnic groups. Mr. Carlson said this was happening in the US during his show in April.
Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said he uses the same language as white supremacists.
“He is anti-Semitic, racist and toxic. This became the ideology of mass shooters in El Paso, Christchurch and Pittsburgh. Tucker has to leave, ”he tweeted after the excerpt.
Media matters to America called it “a passionate defense of white substitution theory.”

“This person is not associated with our business, except that he bears the same name as our founder, who passed away in 1982. To be clear, we treat all customers equally and respectfully. Our employees were professional and cordial with Mr. Carlson, as we are with all of our customers, ”said Dan Bailey’s Fly Shop in a statement. Web site…
