Tucker Carlson’s Top Writer Resigns After Discovery of Racist, Sexist Comments in Online Forum

Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s top writer, Blake Neff, has resigned after CNN Business discovered that he had been posting racist and sexist material in an online forum under a pseudonym.

A Fox News spokesperson confirmed to TheWrap on Friday that Neff had resigned but did not elaborate on the reason why.

According to CNN Business, Neff disparaged Black and Asian people and derided a woman for being a “megashrew” in multiple pseudonymous posts. Comments include, “Black doods staying inside playing Call of Duty is probably one of the biggest factors keeping crime down,” which CNN said Neff wrote last month. In another post made this week, CNN reported that Neff said that he “wouldn’t get LASIK from an Asian for free” in response to an email thread with the subject line, “Would u let a JET BLACK congo n—– do lasik eye surgery on u for 50% off?”

CNN Business said that after receiving an anonymous tip, they were able to identify Neff as the person behind the username “CharlesXII” by reviewing his messages with public information about Neff. The account had also posted photos in 2018 to the online forum in which Neff’s reflection can be seen taking the photograph, according to CNN Business.

Neff was asked to join “Tucker Carlson Tonight” as a writer in November 2016 from the Daily Caller, where he was an education correspondent, according to a recent profile published in Dartmouth University’s alumni magazine. In the profile, Neff also said he was responsible for the “first drafts” for “anything” that Carlson was reading off the teleprompter.

Neff has taken down most of his social media accounts as of Friday evening. He remains unable to be reached for comment.

Not the least bit surprising that his top writer is a racist and a misogynist. Probably one of the first attributes Tucker will look for on the successors resume. Tucker oozes hate.

It's like we are in the Twilight Zone. Here is concrete evidence that what comes out of Tucker's mouth originates in the mind of a racist, misogynistic pig. But it won't stop his fans from continuing to hang on every word and ooh and aah like adolescent fangirls.

Ugh. Between the Stone commutation, Barr swapping loyalists into the E.D.N.Y. office and this totally predictable story about a writer for Trump's favorite time-waster, I need to spend some time outside. Luckily, I can. Ugh.

He gets paid to write hate; what is he giving it away for free for?

Hunh, the pseudonym didn't keep him safe. Guess he didn't keep it so private.

It's appalling but not all that surprising. It's interesting how he was able to dial back the hate somewhat to get his stuff on air. But when he was able to be himself, he was a racist and misogynist:

And over the course of five years, Neff has maintained a lengthy thread
in which he has derided a woman and posted information about her dating
life that has invited other users to mock her and invade her privacy.
There has at times also been overlap between some material he posted or
saw on the forum and Carlson's show.


In a recent article in the Dartmouth Alumni Magazine,
Neff said, "Anything [Carlson is] reading off the teleprompter, the
first draft was written by me."


His username on the forum, CharlesXII, is a reference to Charles XII of
Sweden, a king known for his military victories and who abstained from
sex and alcohol. Neff, a history buff interested in wars and military
battles, has repeatedly disclosed on the forum that he rarely drinks and
The Post story said he rarely dates.

There's a strange adolescent immaturity associated with Trump supporters. Maybe that's what they're all trying to go back to--their wonder years.

Incel?

Incels, a portmanteau of "involuntary celibates", are members of an
online subculture who define themselves as unable to find a romantic or
sexual partner despite desiring one. Discussions in incel forums are
often characterized by resentment, misogyny, misanthropy, self-pity and
self-loathing, racism, a sense of entitlement to sex, and the
endorsement of violence against sexually active people

I'm sure the pandemic president will find a place for him in the administration.

Only if the pandemic president's COVID campaign gets him reelected.

Resign? Writing racist sexist trash to titillate the Tucker fans was his job, but I guess it is only permissible when it is read out to a camera because Tucker still has a job.

Poor little incel.

Tucker will address this on his Monday night show. FOX released a scathing statement regarding Neff.

If he denies he knew then he is flat out lying. Hope he doesn't do that but whatever he does he will get a pass from the base.

Tucker just announced he's taking a "planned" vacation. I'll bet he planned it this weekend. Remember when Bill O'Reilly took his permanent vacation?

"“We are all human, when we pretend we are holy, we are lying,” Carlson continued in what was a defiant flag planting where some expected contrite remorse. “When we pose as blameless in order to hurt other people, we are committing the gravest sin of all and we will be punished for it. No question.”"

The "ghouls" who were appalled by Neff's trash mouth are in the wrong for being too judgemental. Pure RW garbage spin.

It's a well-deserved vacation and hopefully a permanent one.

What disgusts me is that Tucker Carlson - and Fox executives - had to have known that Neff was doing this. It wasn't a secret among "those people."

We will be punished for it? Huh? By whom? What kind of punishment? A time out, or unemployment? and, besides, posing as blameless in order to hurt other people is not what happened here.

"When we pose as blameless in order to hurt other people, we are committing the gravest sin of all and we will be punished for it. No question.”

Tucker's brow furrows must block his words from reaching his ears.

Why do racists keep crawling out of the woodwork of the party that claims it's not racist?

I am confused by the bit where he talks about blaming people for behavior they cant control and the way they were born. What is that supposed to be about?

""It is wrong to attack for people for qualities they cannot control," Carlson said. "In this country, we judge people for what they do, not for how they were born."

Must be why Tucker announced he is going on vacation. He can’t do a show without a writer?

They always go on a long-planned vacation after they got caught saying the quiet parts out loud. I posted on another thread when this story broke that a vacation would be announced.
