TRUTH PUKE’S TAKE: Some Pentagon officials are reportedly rejoicing over the recent firing of former Fox News host Tucker Carlson. Carlson had been a vocal critic of the Biden administration’s policies regarding the military, with a particular focus on personnel issues such as diversity and maternity flight suits. While his views may have appealed to some conservative members of the military rank-and-file, they did not sit well with many top officials in the Defense Department.
In fact, news of Carlson’s firing was met with “delight and outright glee in some corners” of the Pentagon, according to one senior DoD official. Another official simply stated, “Good riddance.” Carlson’s attacks on the military and its leadership were seen as harmful to the institution, and his remarks disparaging female service members, in particular, prompted a rare rebuke from then-Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby.
it appears that some Pentagon officials are highly sensitive to criticism, especially when it comes from conservative media personalities like Tucker Carlson. While it is understandable that officials want to protect the integrity and reputation of the military, the overreaction to Carlson’s criticisms suggests a level of defensiveness that may not be warranted.
