(RepublicanWire.org) – Fox News host Tucker Carlson exposed a depraved ad campaign for fashion house Balenciaga that appears to use toddlers cuddling teddy bears in bondage outfits while the photoshoot also shows a document that referred to a US Supreme Court case that struck down a law against child porn.

“Consider the latest ad for the clothing brand, Balenciaga. This was just uploaded on Instagram. As you can see, the photo shoot they’re using to sell their products features a young girl holding a teddy bear in a bondage outfit,” Carlson noted.

“Then in case you missed the point, the photo shoot also contains this image. It shows several documents. Most of them aren’t visible, but what you can see when you zoom in, and of course, the point is that you see it, is a reference to a US Supreme Court case called Ashcroft vs. Free Speech Coalition. That case struck down a law against kiddie porn. What is this? Well, it is what it appears to be. It’s an endorsement of kiddie porn, of child pornography. What else could it be? We wanted to know. We reached out today to Balenciaga to get their explanation and they didn’t respond,” he recounted.

Carlson then asked where the outrage was over the creepiness of the ad. Evidently, it is pretty much nowhere to be found.

In one ad, a red-haired little girl wears a T-shirt from the brand while holding the strap connected to a white bear, which wears a vest with a padlocked choker around its neck. In another one, a brunette child sported a blue outfit while clutching a purple plush animal, which was wearing what looked like BDSM attire.

Carlson was enraged over the blatant sexualizing of the children.

“So, we’re going to have to take that on face value and ask, where’s the moral outrage? We have an entire industry in this country comprised of moral outrage merchants,” he railed.

“If you’ve ever been on Twitter, you know what we mean. Truly, an entire sector of our economy is devoted to attacking people for falling short of the mark, and here is a high-end retailer promoting kiddie porn in an ad on Instagram, and nobody notices,” Carlson angrily pointed out.

He then demanded to know why the media and social media allowed the ad to run when it ostensibly endorses kiddie porn.

“There’s no boycott. There’s no front-page New York Times editorial against it and of course, Instagram, let the advertisement run endorsing kiddie porn and by the way, if you have an alternate explanation for what this was, let us know. A child with a teddy bear in a bondage outfit, and a Supreme Court decision striking down a kiddie porn law displayed on the table. What is that? Are we jumping to conclusions? Don’t think so. It is what it appears to be,” he concluded.

“It’s right in your face and no one’s saying anything. Again, Instagram had no problem with this. Until Elon Musk took over Twitter, Twitter allowed hashtags that explicitly linked to child pornography. Nobody said anything because crimes against children are no big deal. It’s thought crimes that are the real crimes,” he charged.

He closed out by making the accusation that child abusers get a pass but not conservatives.

“If you said something about it… if you were Libs of TikTok and said, ‘Wait a second, this seems to be abetting child molestation,’ which of course, that’s what it’s doing, you’re instantly booted off Twitter. But the links to kiddie porn? They’re still there. Well, now they’ve been deleted, thank God. That’s one improvement,” the Fox News host stated.

It should be noted that this company has been associated with the likes of Kim Kardashian and previously made headlines for its daring fashion choices, according to the New York Post. It is a big supporter of gay rights as well. The current ad however seems to have crossed a line… at least for conservatives.

Fox News reports: “The photographer for the ad campaign, Gabriele Galimberti, said the images were part of a project series called ‘Toy Stories,’ according to his Instagram page. The images, which now appear to be mostly scrubbed from the global brand’s website, sparked outrage from conservative activists.”

Penny Nance, who is the CEO of Concerned Women for America, a conservative women’s rights group, called the images “exploitive propaganda.”

“This is not about them being provocative and getting attention,” Nance told Fox News Digital. “The entire campaign sexualizes children, period. It is child exploitation, period. And it feeds and normalizes a culture that is dark and depraved. Balenciaga needs to answer for it.”

Kelsey Bolar, who is with the Independent Women’s Forum, agreed.

“Balenciaga has no business introducing ‘bondage,’ a perverse adult sexual practice, to young children. Worse, the fashion house is using these images to advertise its products, essentially profiting from the sexualization of children. The desire to sexualize innocent children is a disturbing trend that’s emerged in today’s culture, and this is a twisted, disturbing example,” she said.

“They are trying to chum up attention by incorporating a Supreme Court child porn pandering case as window dressing. It’s connecting child porn with their product,” Benjamin Bull, who is the general counsel for the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, asserted. “It’s an exploitative attention-getting device.”

Balenciaga was torched on Twitter over the disgusting ads:

(RepublicanWire.org) – Fox News host Tucker Carlson tore into Vice President Kamala Harris over her many failures and even speculated on what her next move will be.

“Harris is going back to Europe to see how much worse she can make this disaster,” Carlson said, offering his opinion of her next moves.

Carlson said that the disaster in Ukraine is spinning out of control, claiming it is “shocking to see Europe just lost a huge percentage of its energy supply, which is not a small thing. We’ve been taken by surprise by the whole thing. We’re not the only ones who were, but we’re willing to admit it.”

Carlson blamed Harris, who he said is not a “serious person” or someone who is capable of handling the situation in Ukraine.

“So, why didn’t we see this coming, this total loss of control? Well, because we assumed that if things were dire, serious people would be involved in fixing them, but we looked up and we saw Kamala Harris involved, and that reassured us,” Carlson said.

“Harris had just come back from Europe, where she’d been conducting diplomacy with our allies, and that appeared to be proof this could not really be a big deal. The situation in Ukraine had been legitimately serious. If the future of Europe and the world hung in the balance as now so obviously it does, of course, the Biden administration would not have sent Kamala Harris to fix it because that’s not her job. Kamala Harris’s job is to trot down to the Blue Room periodically to greet delegations of TikTok influencers or to cut occasional PSAs for the Children’s Dental Health Awareness Month, which is in February. So, we assumed she’d be working on that right now,” Carlson said.

“But averting war with Russia? Saving the civilized world? C’mon. That is absolutely not Kamala Harris’s job. That was our assumption, but as noted, we were wrong. Why were we wrong? Well, we spend a lot of time watching Kamala Harris. You probably don’t. Unless you are a junior producer at MSNBC, you’re probably not that familiar with Kamala Harris. We should say, by the way, we didn’t underestimate Vladimir Putin. We overestimated Joe Biden, but we knew that once Kamala Harris was involved, it couldn’t really be that serious and we knew that because this is what she’s like,” he added.

Former GOP Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich offered similar comments about Harris last week, saying her speaking blunders are a reason to pray for President Joe Biden’s health.

Gingrich told Fox News’s Sean Hannity that the VP’s repetitive ”the passage of time” remarks — where she said the phrase at least four times within the span of a minute while speaking in Louisiana — highlight an incoherence on her part.

“First of all, if you want a strong reason to pray for the health of the president of the United States, you are reminded again today that the region is the vice president. Not totally incoherent. He may or may not have cognitive decline problems at his age but at her age, she’s just dumb,” Gingrich said.

“Let’s be clear. Kamala Harris might be the dumbest person ever elected vice president in American history. And that’s why people keep resigning. If you are a national security advisor and you were competent and you worked hard and you knew what you are doing, and you watched her in Poland come up to break up laughing when she’s asked about Ukrainian refugees? You’d have a sense of total humiliation. So I’m not surprised that the particular advisor resigned. Because it’s very clear that Kamala Harris should never, ever, be allowed to leave the country,” he added.

“I think we have never seen a national political figure — not just the vice president, but a national political figure — who is as self-destructive as Kamala Harris. I mean, you watch her day after day, you watch her go to Poland, break up laughing in a press conference with the Polish president when she is asked about the refugees from Ukraine. You see her tenth person leave her staff, who was, by the way, the National security advisor who was with her in Poland, who must have been totally embarrassed and demoralized by watching her break up laughing when talking about the Ukrainian refugees. And you watch other things she’s done,” he continued.

“And I thought that she was an insurance policy to make sure that nobody tried to replace Biden no matter how bad his cognitive problems, but I’m beginning to think that she is like Spiro Agnew, who turned out to be so bad that when he got replaced, he set the stage for Nixon to be replaced,” Gingrich said.

He continued, “And I have a hunch that she is on a very, very short fuse right now because I think most Americans realize that the prospect of her being president is genuinely terrifying. I mean, it’s bad enough to think about Biden being president when he is clearly not totally in touch with reality, but the idea of being replaced by Kamala, I think, is astonishingly frightening.”

TheBlaze founder Glenn Beck says he was wrong to apologize for calling former President Barack Obama “racist.” “This president, I think, has exposed himself as a guy, over and over and over again, who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture… This guy is, I believe, a racist,” Beck said in 2009. He has since apologized for that remark, saying hat Obama “made [him] a better man.” Now, he says he was wrong.

In an interview with Tucker Carlson, Beck says that his numerous apologies to Obama over the years were absolutely the wrong thing to do.

“I take my apology back. I was exactly right, and I even stated it right. You are a racist if you believe in critical race theory,” Beck said. “If you think that what Dr. Martin Luther King said, that he envisions a country that is seeing people for the content of their character and not their color, if you if think that’s wrong, then yes, you are a racist.”

Beck’s remarks follow an Obama interview with Anderson Cooper, where the former President accused conservative outlets of using race and racism to profit. “There are certain right-wing media venues, for example, that monetize and capitalize on stoking the fear and resentment of a white population that is witnessing a changing America and seeing demographic changes,” Obama said in the interview. “And do everything they can to give people a sense that their way of life is threatened and that people are trying to take advantage of them.”

“What are we going to do about climate change, what are we going to do about—lo and behold, the biggest single most important issue to them apparently right now is critical race theory,” Obama said. “Who knew that was the threat to our republic?”
