You’re probably going to find this pretty hard to believe, but Media Matters is completely mischaracterizing something Tucker Carlson said.
This outright lie comes courtesy of MMFA deputy director of rapid response Andrew Lawrence:
Tucker Carlson says it's "honorable and necessary" to force women to give birth after being impregnated by their rapists pic.twitter.com/7SOazQv5Ck

That’s not what he says, Andrew.
did you forget to post the clip where he said that, because he doesn't say that https://t.co/aoXefBLRz6

Except he didn't say that. You're lying. https://t.co/xuTyAEWxMI

Why do they give us the video, then completely misrepresent it? Are they hoping we don't watch it? Or that we have no comprehension skills? Weird.

Look at the comments on dudes post. I don’t think they do watch it. That’s insane.

Well, according to MMFA, lying is OK as long as it serves the greater good — which is stirring up ignorant lefty outrage:

Too bad he doesn’t also believe that it is honorable and necessary to provide healthcare to the women who will be forced to give birth.

Women don't need nor want a man telling us what is honerable or necessary, in anything. Men won't give up their mysogyny easily but women will force a reckoning. We WILL win.

What does this soulless individual know about honorable behaviors?

Sorry America but The Handmaid’s Tale is supposed to be a work of fiction not a road map for running a country.

We need an updated listing of his advertisers

Time for bottom boy Tucker to take one for their team and let us know how he feels the morning after.

I vote for a “bobbit” for tucker.

Mission accomplished, MMFA!
I guess we just have a different viewpoint on what the word “honorable” means.
— Rich Danch (@rdanch) May 16, 2019
Clearly. MMFA thinks it’s honorable to peddle smears, which is a very different viewpoint from ours.
