Yesterday, I received the following email message from Bill Spadea, under the rubric of his “Common Sense Club”.
The silencing and deplatforming of conservative voices in the United States continues on.
Yesterday, Fox News ousted its top-rated host, Tucker Carlson, without providing any reasoning for the shocking move. Ironically, this announcement was made shortly after Tucker Carlson Tonight surpassed all other cable news shows in terms of ratings AND viewers.
So why would Fox News get rid of its most-watched and best-rated host?
Is it because he spoke the truth?
We know that speaking truth and challenging the ‘group think’ narrative makes people like Tucker Carlson a threat to the mainstream media’s radical far left agenda.
Tucker Carlson spoke the truth??? Speaking the extreme language of misogyny is speaking the truth?
This Spadea message was given the same week that Tucker Carlson was exposed as using the “C word” in private messages. This is tantamount to Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke referring to African-American leaders with the “N-Word” on a visit to Camden.
Now full disclosure. I have known Bill Spadea his entire life. He is neither a racist nor a misogynist. He is also an outstanding family man who outside the arena of politics possesses an undeniable degree of personal decency.
Spadea is, however, a person with atrociously poor political judgment. Although not a racist or misogynist himself, he seems to have no filter or restraint in defending the most gender-bigoted behavior of any MAGA hero whose support he seeks. When it comes to political judgment, Bill Spadea seems intent on validating the description of him by Chris Christie as a “bonehead.”
In a gubernatorial general election or even a GOP primary, Bill Spadea would be total anathema to women voters, attracting at best thirty percent. He has crossed a clearly defined Jersey red line. To use an Alan Steinberg metaphor, he now has as much chance of winning even the GOP nomination for New Jersey governor as I have of being elected mayor of Damascus.
Although the MAGA crowd may have unrequited love for Tucker Carlson, they know that Spadea has made a fatal and irreversible political faux pas. Will he next attack E. Jean Carroll?
Republican State Senator Mike Testa, Jr. Is a hero to GOP cultural warriors. He has, however, far better political judgment than Bill Spadea. He would never be caught dead defending misogynist or racist behavior. You will soon be witnessing the MAGA crowd deserting Bill Spadea in droves and PLEADING with Testa to enter the GOP 2025 gubernatorial sweepstakes.
One thing is certain. Jack Ciattarelli, the 2025 New Jersey GOP gubernatorial frontrunner, is having a VERY good morning.
Alan J. Steinberg served as regional administrator of Region 2 EPA during the administration of former President George W. Bush and as executive director of the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission.
