The right-wing hysteria against LBGTQ+ kids and the people who support them is reaching a fever pitch, and of course, Tucker Carlson is one of the worst offenders. On September 19th, Tucker Carlson went on an extended rant against public school teachers, equating teaching any non-heteronormative identity as "children being used as props in the sexual fantasies of adults."
But he didn't stop there. In a downright terrifying finish, Carlson quite explicitly told parents they have a duty to fight back: "No parent should put up with this for one second, no matter what the law says. Your moral duty is to defend your children. This is an attack on your children and you should fight back."
Demand Tucker Carlson be taken off the air for inciting terrorism against teachers and gay people!
Right-wingers are already calling in bomb threats to children's hospitals for offering gender-affirming care to teens and we've seen them murder abortion doctors before in the past; the radical right-wing has made it very clear that they are rabidly hungry for political violence, and it's only a matter of time before someone gets hurt or is even killed.
UPDATE: Since this petition was published, a gunman attacked an LGBTQ club that was planning to hold a drag show the next day in Colorado and massacred 5 people.
Demand FOX News suspend Tucker Carlson for calling for violence against teachers and LBGTQ+ people!
