Crackpot #NeverTrumper Ralph Peters Leaves FOX News – Then Signs Off in Russian
Retired US Army Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters went on Tucker Carlson Tonight last year in July to discuss the reports that ISIS leader Abu Baghdadi was killed in Syria-Iraq.
The discussion quickly turned to Putin and Russia and that is when Peters compared Tucker Carlson to a Nazi apologist.
Of course, Tucker did not appreciate the smear and let Colonel Peters know it.
Tucker unloaded on Peters!
Ralph Peters was once a favorite of conservatives but he lost his luster a while back with his constant attacks on President Donald Trump.
This week Ralph Peters left FOX News as a contributor. Then sent out an unhinged good-bye letter to colleagues and a Russian quote for President Trump.
A retired United States Army lieutenant colonel and Fox News contributor quit Tuesday and denounced the network and President Donald Trump in an email to colleagues.
“Fox has degenerated from providing a legitimate and much-needed outlet for conservative voices to a mere propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration,” wrote Ralph Peters, a Fox News “strategic analyst.”
On March 1st, I informed Fox that I would not renew my contract. The purpose of this message to all of you is twofold:
First, I must thank each of you for the cooperation and support you’ve shown me over the years. Those working off-camera, the bookers and producers, don’t often get the recognition you deserve, but I want you to know that I have always appreciated the challenges you face and the skill with which you master them.
Second, I feel compelled to explain why I have to leave. Four decades ago, I took an oath as a newly commissioned officer. I swore to “support and defend the Constitution,” and that oath did not expire when I took off my uniform. Today, I feel that Fox News is assaulting our constitutional order and the rule of law, while fostering corrosive and unjustified paranoia among viewers. Over my decade with Fox, I long was proud of the association. Now I am ashamed…
…Also, I deeply respect the hard-news reporters at Fox, who continue to do their best as talented professionals in a poisoned environment. These are some of the best men and women in the business..
So, to all of you: Thanks, and, as our president’s favorite world leader would say, “Das vidanya.”
