I beat the drum a lot of “never apologize to SJWs.” We’ve seen it over and over again in the book industry, as people come out with their art, get roasted because they “offended” some outrage mob on Twitter, and then they apologize for something they’re not sorry about, that they never did wrong, and that ultimately doesn’t matter.
Tucker Carlson, the Fox News host is under fire all the time. He knows how to handle it. He’s been able to parlay his quick wit into moving up the chain to one of the top people in the media because of the way he stands his ground, is logical, and refuses to acknowledge the SJW narrative.
Over the weekend, Media Matters amped up the campaign because he’s so successful, he’s too much of a threat for them. They uncovered him on a shock jock show saying edgy things more than a decade ago:
Carlson, who was hired by Fox News in 2009, also used sexist language to talk about women, including then-co-workers at NBC and public figures. He referred to Martha Stewart’s daughter Alexis Stewart as “cunty,” called journalist Arianna Huffington a “pig,” and labeled Britney Spears and Paris Hilton “the biggest white whores in America.” He also said that women enjoy being told to “be quiet and kind of do what you’re told” and that they are “extremely primitive.”
Funny part is, he’s probably right about all of the above.
But either way, who cares? Tuck knows that the left is gonna be outraged over him, comb through his hours of speech every week, cherry pick some stuff, and try to make him look like a monster. It’s cuz of who he is, nothing more, nothing less.
He knows this, and refuses to apologize.
Once you’re identified as “other” by the mob — whether you’re apolitical like 20BooksTo50K or someone highly political like Tucker, you’re their target. It doesn’t matter what you say. It doesn’t matter what you meant. It doesn’t matter how much you try to appease them.
They want your blood. They want you fired. They come from that perspective first and then they come up with reasons to justify it.
They are not interested in any actual policy, or accomplishing anything other than destroying you.
If you apologize, you’re not only going to not get them to stop, but you’re going to lose the other side who would have supported you because you’re admitting wrong. Just don’t do it. Stick with your plan. Ignore the SJWs or ridicule them. It’s the only way to survive.
I’ve survived multiple SJW attacks and come out way ahead. Part of that is in launching my own indie comics which have been wildly successful because people want to back someone who’ll fight against the establishment nonsense. I got the opportunity to work on an adaptation of the bestselling Ember War Military Sci-Fi. The comic is closing out this week because we’re almost ready to ship and Flying Sparks 2 will be launching soon. Get in on it now.
