On Tuesday night, Fox News Analyst Ralph Peters appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show and suggested the anchor was a “Hitler apologist.”
Needless to say, Carlson instantly made him regret it.
Check it out (BizPacReview):
“He [Putin] is malevolent and he is as close to pure evil as I can find,” said Peters. “He’s also brilliant. I don’t understand what any American would want an alliance with Russia. We should be strengthening our alliance with democracies instead of trashing NATO — we should be building it up much more strongly.”
“He’s a shady guy,” Carlson responded. “Hard to see why he’s a threat to us. How many wars can we fight at once? Why not just accept that people who are bad people share our interests and side with them?”
Peters, at this point, compared Carlson to Charles Lindbergh apologizing for Hitler in 1938.
“I beg your pardon. Slow down for a minute. I am not in any way, you cannot compare me to someone who would make apologies for Hitler? And I don’t think Putin is comparable to Hitler.”
When Peters insisted he was, Carlson called it a “grotesque overstatement” and “insane.”

“You just compared me to a Nazi apologist because I asked a simple question. Slow down! Slow down! Which is, why not contravene American interest with a group trying to kill ISIS?”
