Bruce Jenner completes ‘sex change’ surgery: ‘I feel wonderful, liberated’
Fox’s Carlson goes easy on Jenner
Last evening, Tucker Carlson of Fox News also interviewed Jenner in Carlson’s debut show replacing Bill O’Reilly, who was forced out at Fox under a cloud of sexual harassment allegations (which he said were “unfounded”). Fox News, which has a long history of supporting the homosexual and transgender activist agenda and funding an LGBT journalists group, promoted the Jenner interview using female pronouns.
Carlson, whose interviews challenging leftists, academic ideologues and political correctness have gone viral in conservative and social media, went relatively easy on Jenner. He elected not to challenge Jenner on core aspects of “transgender” ideology, as he had in a previous interview with a top Democrat dealing with transgenderism.
Instead, Carlson’s main focus was how a “brave” Jenner was to remain a Republican despite all the flack he gets from “transgender” activists for his GOP affiliation.
Carlson did not ask Jenner about his mutilating surgery, nor challenge his audacious claim that people are “born trans,” reminiscent of a longstanding, now largely discredited, LGBT claim that people are “born gay.”
Conservative media critic Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media (AIM) called Fox News’ choice of Jenner for Carlson’s first program in O’Reilly’s time slot a “cheap stunt.”
“From sex harassment allegations to transgender liberation, it looks like sex sells in, around, and on Fox News. How else do you explain O’Reilly’s replacement Tucker Carlson doing his first big interview with a man who goes under the knife to be a woman? But while sex harassment charges got Bill O’Reilly fired, sexual mutilation is something to be celebrated on the ‘new’ Fox News Channel,” Kincaid, director of the AIM Center for Investigative Journalism, told LifeSiteNews.
Kincaid said he understands Fox’s desire for high ratings “in the wake of O’Reilly’s disastrous firing,” but said the Jenner interview will alienate much of the Fox News base.
“It’s a cheap stunt that exploits a sad human condition – gender confusion based on a mental disorder,” he said. “This is not news, but crass media exploitation of a sickness that used to land someone in a psychiatric hospital. What’s next on Fox News, more circus freaks and human oddities? Is this how they intend to cope with the loss of their most powerful conservative voice?”
Sounds like a Democrat, attacks Mark Green
Jenner repeated other talking points of the LGBT lobby, for example, condemning Trump’s pick of Christian conservative Tennessee state senator Mark Green as the new Army Secretary. Social conservatives are ecstatic over the choice of pro-life and pro-religious freedom Green, who replaces Obama’s departed, openly homosexual Army Secretary, Eric Fanning.
Jenner personalized Green’s previous comments in defense of protecting women against men in female public restrooms, taking them out of context to imply that the state senator had called him and other transgender-identified people “evil.”
“I’m not an evil person,” he said.
