Tucker Carlson kept Fox News’ war on Oprah Winfrey alive yesterday when he told viewers about the importance of “keep(ing) your boys away from Oprah.” According to Carlson, Oprah’s “anti-male’ brainwashing is so toxic that once he rid his home of it, “it’s really helped a lot.”
The discussion began with co-host Peter Johnson, Jr. saying, “Let’s talk about the love of a father for his daughters.” That was little more than a euphemism for “let’s attack black culture!” In this case, the role of “African American designated black attacker” was played by an apparently unwitting blogger at AtHomeDadMatters.com who wrote a post “breaking up” with rap music “for the sake of my daughters.”
Co-host Anna Kooiman read an excerpt from the blog post/letter to rap:
“It’s your rampant misogyny, homie. It is an epidemic. Your unapologetic sexism is a scourge on an otherwise exceptional cultural phenomenon. For the sake of my daughter, I’ve got to kick you to the curb.”
Kooiman later made a point of noting that it’s not just rap music. But before she could, co-host Carlson jumped in with an apparently unexpected jab at Winfrey:
I know the feeling. When I had a son, I stopped watching Oprah because it was just too anti-male. And I felt like I didn’t want to bring him up in a home where Oprah was constantly attacking men. And it’s really helped a lot
Kooiman was obviously a bit flummoxed by Carlson’s remark. But Johnson said sympathetically, “Sure.”
Kooiman read some more of the blog post, gushed, “Oh, this is so sweet” and then deliberately distanced herself from making it about black music, per se. “It’s not just rappers, it’s everybody," she said. "It’s Miley Cirus, it’s Ke$ha, it’s Rihanna. …And I have to admit, I like the beat, I like the music.”
Which I will acknowledge is a valid point. But considering that as she said it, Kooiman was sitting there with a short skirt hiked up almost to her underwear – on the network where it’s apparently mandatory for female hosts to show off maximum thigh-age – well, I don’t think any of them have much of leg to stand on (pardon the pun) to complain about other people objectifying women.
After reading a number of viewer emails complaining about modern music, Carlson took another gratuitous swipe at Oprah: “And remember, keep your boys away from Oprah. …Keep your girls away from rap and boys away from Oprah and everybody’ll be fine.”

“When Hillary attacked cookie-baking homemakers, Oxygen’s philosophy was born. No cookies baked on Oxygen. And, coincidentally, the other partner in Oxygen is Carsey-Werner-Mandabach, the producers who brought us such womanly gems as “Roseanne” —who didn’t stay home baking cookies, either. She worked in the factory, belittled her husband who couldn’t support the family, and constantly bitched about traditional family life. Kinda like Oxygen’s programming.”
Your comment about Oprah is not just offensive, I believe it says way more about you than about her.
What’s in it for her? Just a billion dollars or so
