Radical Left Activist Behind Campaign Against Tucker Once Praised KKK Wizard

New information indicates that, despite having recently spearheaded a boycott against Fox News’ Tucker Carlson for comments made over a decade ago, Media Matters President Angelo Carusone has his own history of sordid remarks.

Among the Media Matters President’s colorful assortment of questionable comments are mocking references to Jews, transexuals, Japanese, and Bangladeshis, including the use of the phrase “jewry” which was popularized by Nazis.

Carusone also reportedly heaped praise upon former Democrat Senator Robert Byrd, who was also a former grand wizard of the KKK.

From The Daily Caller:

Media Matters President Angelo Carusone is currently leading a boycott campaign against Fox News host Tucker Carlson, a co-founder of The Daily Caller News Foundation, in an attempt to get him fired.

Carusone and Media Matters, which openly pine for the destruction of Fox News, have justified the left-wing boycott campaign by pointing to a number of statements that Carlsonmade on a radio shock jock show between 2006 and 2011.

But Carusone has his own track record of inflammatory statements. Carusone’s now-defunct blog included degrading references to “trannies,” “jewry” and Bangladeshis.

Carusone posted a lengthy diatribe in November 2005 about a Bangladeshi man who was robbed by “a gang of transvestites,” as Carusone described it. Carusone was offended that the gang was described as “attractive” in an article.

“Did you notice the word attractive? What the fuck is that doing in there? Is the write[r] a tranny lover too? Or, perhaps he’s trying to justify how these trannies tricked this Bangladeshi in the first place? Look man, we don’t need to know whether or not they were attractive. The fucking guy was Bangladeshi,” Carusone wrote. “And while we’re out, what the hell was he doing with $7,300 worth of stuff. The guy’s Banladeshi! [sic]”

Carusone also chided police for not advising the public to “stay away from tranny bars, stay away from places [sic] where Eddie Murphy and Robert Downey Jr. have/are visiting, don’t fucking kiss a transvestite, don’t bring a group of transvestites back to your room, etc…”

The future Media Matters president titled his post, “Tranny Paradise.”

In another post that same month, Carusone downplayed a male basketball coach’s alleged sexual and physical abuse of his female players, adding, “lighten up Japs,” using what is considered an ethnic slur.

In another November 2005 blog post, Carusone praised former Democratic West Virginia Sen. Robert Byrd, a former grandmaster of the Klu Klux Klan, as one of his ten favorite public figures. “In his lunacy, we trust,” Carusone wrote of Byrd.

Carusone made anti-Semitic comments on his blog as well.
