Now Media Matters, which unearthed Carlson's pro-statutory rape remarks, has just published audio of Carlson in 2006 using a homophobic slur on-air, and in a separate report, Carlson using white nationalist language and making racist remarks.
First, here's Carlson using the word "faggot" on-air:
BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE: MSNBC's very own Tucker Carlson. Tuck, do you like coming on with us? 'Cause I like you. I mean I'm not trying to fag out on you or nothing, but I like you. I like you.
TUCKER CARLSON: Well I like you too, and I mean that. You always say, “I mean that in a non-fag way,” but I actually mean it in a completely faggot way.
CO-HOST: I wish I knew how to quit you, Tuck.
THE LOVE SPONGE: I wish I knew how to quit you, Tuck.
Media Matters also published this audio of Carlson's disgusting racist remarks and white nationalist rhetoric:

Here's how Media Matters characterizes some of this audio:
Carlson: Immigrants should be "hot" or "really smart" because people picking lettuce aren't going to build a stronger country.
Tucker Carlson: “White men” deserve credit for “creating civilization.”
Carlson: “Iraq is a crappy place filled with a bunch of, you know, semiliterate primitive monkeys -- that's why it wasn't worth invading.”
Carlson: Afghanistan is "never going to be a civilized country because the people aren't civilized.”
Carlson: I have “zero sympathy” for Iraqis because they “don’t use toilet paper or forks.” They should “just shut the fuck up and obey” us.
Carlson fantasized about a presidential candidate blaming “lunatic Muslims who are behaving like animals” and saying “I'm going to kill as many of them as I can if you elect me.”
Carlson: “The Congressional Black Caucus exists to blame the white man for everything, and I’m happy to say that in public because it’s true.”
