Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” American Spectator columnist and former CNN contributor Jeffrey Lord reacted to Kamau Bell’s speech to Antifa last month in Berkeley, CA and CNN’s silence on his participation in that event.
Lord, who was fired by CNN for his tweeting “Sieg Heil!” at Media Matters’ Angelo Carusone, agreed that it seemed as if there were a double standard at play for what was allowable for him at CNN and Bell’s participation in the Antifa protest.
“I mean, it certainly seems that way to me,” Lord said. “And I’m not big on, needless to say, on firing people for these kinds of things. I think maybe we’ve entered this strange new world of Twitter here, but how do you have robust debates with people? I mean, I was very adamant about calling these people out because of their tactics.”
