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.”
