Tucker Hits Leftists for Blaming Conservatives for Buffalo Shooting

Fox News host Tucker Carlson had to be champing at the bit to get back on television Monday night after having to endure an entire weekend of many in the leftist media blaming him and others for the mass shooting at a grocery store in Buffalo, New York on Saturday afternoon. When Carlson opened his show Tucker Carlson Tonight, to defend himself and his fellow conservatives, he did not disappoint. 

Carlson opened by pointing out the media’s misdirected coverage of the shooting, which focused on the shooter’s motives:

A teenager in a mock military uniform walked into a grocery store in Buffalo and shot more than a dozen strangers with a rifle. No doubt you’ve seen accounts of this on the news. What you probably haven’t seen are details about any of the ten Americans who were murdered in that store in Buffalo.

He pointed out that this is “because the coverage hasn’t been about them” nor is it about the shooter who murdered ten innocent people. Carlson then pivoted to the obsessive media coverage of the shooter’s manifesto which they claim proved that he and others in conservative media influenced him to commit mass murder: “you’ve probably heard this document described as a racist manifesto. That’s not quite right. It’s definitely racist, bitterly so.” 

Instead, Carlson proclaimed the “letter is a rambling pastiche of slogans and internet memes, some of which flatly contradict one another.” Further proving Fox News was not to blame for the tragedy that occurred over the weekend, Carlson noted the shooter “suggests that Fox News is part of some global conspiracy against him. He writes like the mental patient he is. Disjointed, irrational, paranoid.”

Carlson ended by making clear that the truth about the Buffalo supermarket killer tells “you a lot about the ruthlessness and dishonesty of our political leadership.” He added that “within minutes of Saturday’s shooting before all of the bodies of those ten murdered Americans had even been identified by their loved ones, professional Democrats had begun a coordinate campaign to blame those murders on their political opponents.” 

The leftist media will do anything to smear Americans who they disagree with. Our media and culture is completely toxic and those who continue to bitterly divide America should be held accountable.

TUCKER CARLSON: And of course, most famously of all, on Saturday afternoon, a teenager in a mock military uniform walked into a grocery store in Buffalo and shot more than a dozen strangers with a rifle. No doubt you’ve seen accounts of this on the news. What you probably haven’t seen are details about any of the ten Americans who were murdered in that store in Buffalo. You may not even know their names, much less who they were, or who they loved. Most of them were black, we know that. But beyond the way they look, not a lot has been reported about them. Because the coverage hasn’t been about them. Nor in fact has it really been about the gunman, he was an 18-year-old called Peyton Gendron. Gendron was mentally ill, everyone around him knew that, including his teachers and the local police. Less than a year ago, Gendron was committed to a mental hospital after threatening to murder his classmates at a school graduation ceremony. 

So, on Saturday, after he made good on his long standing threat to open fire into a crowd, Gendron left a 180 page letter that he said would explain his motives. You’ve probably heard this document described as a racist manifesto. That’s not quite right. It’s definitely racist, bitterly so. Gendron reduces people to their skin color, that’s the essence of her racism and it’s immoral. 

But what he wrote does not add up to a manifesto. It is not a blueprint for a new extremist political movement. Much less the potential inspiration for a racist revolution. Anyone who claims that it is, is lying or hasn’t read it. Instead, Gendron’s letter is a rambling pastiche of slogans and internet memes, some of which flatly contradict one another. 

The document is not recognizably left-wing or right-wing. It’s not really political at all. The document is crazy. It’s the product of a diseased and organized mind. At one point, Gendron suggests that Fox News is part of some global conspiracy against him. He writes like the mental patient he is. Disjointed, irrational, paranoid. 

Now, that’s true, not that it makes the atrocities he committed easier to bear. If your daughter was murdered in Saturday in Buffalo, you wouldn’t care why the killer did it or he voted for. But the truth about Peyton Gendron does tell you a lot about the ruthlessness and dishonesty of our political leadership. Within minutes of Saturday’s shooting before all of the bodies of those ten murdered Americans had even been identified by their loved ones, professional Democrats had begun a coordinate campaign to blame those murders on their political opponents. They did it, they said immediately Peyton Gendron was the heir to Donald Trump, they told us. Trumpism committed mass murder in Buffalo. And for that reason, it followed logically, we must suspend the First Amendment. That’s hardly an exaggeration of what they’re saying.
