Speaking about the two sexes, Tucker offered many more opinions about women, often using the c-word.

Carlson, who defended his track record in a tweet, said he wouldn't give the "usual ritual contrition" after his previous comments about women surfaced. If you want to know what I think, you can watch.

The tapes, put out Sunday by watchdog group Media Matters for America, are recordings of Carlson from 2006 to 2011 when he'd call into the nationally-syndicated The Bubba the Love Sponge Show.

What was discussed on the show?

. "Because they hate weakness".

"Now this guy may be., may be a child rapist", Carlson said. I mean, in other words, if you are grievously injured by another person, it's not your fault.

The Louisiana senator says he would rather be informed than opinionated. It would be really easy for him to say that those clips from a decade ago don't reflect his views now, or that he was playing up a persona for a gross shock jock show.

He didn't. Warren Jeffs didn't marry under age girls. You know, she didn't. He's an accessory to the rape of children.

Bubba the Love Sponge chimed in, saying the act should nearly be described as premeditated, but Carlson wasn't swayed. Carlson also suggested underage marriage is not as serious as forcible rape and called rape-shield laws "totally unfair". It remains to be seen if the right-wing news network will take any disciplinary action, but Carlson did lose a great many advertisers from his primetime slot.

He's not accused of touching anybody; he is accused of facilitating a marriage between a 16-year-old girl and a 27-year-old man.

CARLSON: What do you mean an accessory? Vick, a former National Football League quarterback, was sentenced to 23 months in 2007 for dogfighting. He's not in prison for polygamy, he's in prison for child rape. That's bullshit. In my brief experience, you don't get swimming going is arguing with them.

Carlson replied, "If it weren't my daughter I would love that scenario".

In the recordings, Carlson can be heard making a number of degrading remarks about women, including calling them "extremely primitive" and comparing them to dogs, as well as defending the now-convicted child sexual abuser Warren Jeffs. You just need to be quiet and kind of do what you're told and lighten up a little bit.

"I feel sorry for unattractive women", he said, speaking about Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan.

Jeffs, it should be noted, was on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list.

Michael Avenatti, the attorney for adult-film actress Stormy Daniels, called Carlson a "complete dirtbag". Media Matters for America uncovered the audio and posted it for the world to get a better understanding of how deranged Carlson really is.
