When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. When radical leftists go after conservatives or populists, their go-to attack is “RACIST!!!” Their actual ideas fail miserably 100% of the time, so they go with gaslighting and false labels as their preferred weapons.
Former NY Times columnist Ben Smith thought it was a good idea to use the “RACIST” tactic against Fox News host Tucker Carlson. What transpired was a good ol’ fashioned ass-kicking of such undeniable magnitude, even Soros-funded leftwing rag Media Matters was embarrassed for poor Smith:
“Semafor founder Ben Smith’s much-ballyhooed Thursday interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson was, predictably, a total shitshow.”
Smith rooted his argument on two points: A short clip of Carlson mentioning “Replacement Theory” without context and the notion that White Supremacists watch his show. He failed miserably to make either point stick and Carlson manhandled him the way Mike Tyson would manhandle an obnoxious passenger on a plane.

It’s cringeworthy by itself, but what makes it even more embarrassing for the leftwing propagandist is that he truly believed it would be a good idea to go toe-to-toe with Carlson.
Our plans are to ask hard questions of powerful people — I don't think there are a lot of journalists who would refuse to do that interview?

Then, there’s the fact that he opened the conversation by begging Carlson not to steamroll him, then tried throughout the interview to steamroll Carlson. Big mistake. It made him look even weaker than he already looked, especially when pretty much everything Carlson said in retort was completely accurate.
“I’m just hoping you’ll let me ask questions and not steamroll me, because you’re a professional and I’m not,” he said.
Why is MyPillow our oldest sponsor? Because we only accept sponsorship from proven America First patriots. Support Mike Lindell and me by using promo code “JDR.” God Bless America.
There are a few morals to this story, not the least of which is don’t throw a child in the ring to fight a lion. But perhaps the biggest lesson learned is that the “racism” hammer only works if you’re talking to actual racists, which Carlson is not.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
