All Tucker Carlson did was speak the truth, and now he is being severely penalized for it.
After discussing the topic of how illegal immigration hurts our environment, several advertisers have canceled their ads buys. But Carlson says he will not be intimidated, vowing to tell the truth — even if it means he loses his show.
The Truth Nobody Wants to Hear
Among other problems, illegal immigration has been proven to have an adverse effect on the environment.
Many of the paths these immigrants take to enter the United States are through protected natural habitats and areas that have rare species of vegetation and wildlife — areas that are left covered in trash and damage after migrants make their way through.
In a recent episode of his show, Carlson referred to a study done back in 2002 that proves these claims — and it is a very safe assumption the numbers are far worse now.

Going Down Fighting
But despite the fact that the left says they champion the environment, Carlson has lost numerous advertisers on his Fox News program after he said that illegal immigration would make the U.S. “poorer and dirtier and more divided.”
He spoke the truth — but liberals didn’t want him to. And they’ve gone on social media, hounding Carlson’s advertisers, until they pulled their commercials from Carlson’s show.
Tucker Carlson addresses the advertiser exodus, saying that “it won’t work for the show, we are not intimidated. We plan to say what’s true until the last day”

Simply put, Democrats these days are operating with fear politics.
They are literally trying to scare and threaten people and businesses into submission.
Thankfully, people like Carlson will not bend.
Sadly, though, the days of shows like his are probably numbered.
Companies like Fox News cannot afford to air shows without sponsors.
No matter how much they may want to, they have bills to pay, and if advertisers are pulling ad buys, there is a very good chance the show will be pulled.
Luckily, Carlson isn’t going down without a fight, promising on Monday that he won’t be intimidated into cancellation.
“We’re not intimidated,” Carlson said. “We plan to say what’s true until the last day.”
