Tucker Carlson ignited a firestorm on the left when he exposed the unfiltered truth about why mobs have taken over in America’s streets.
The Fox News host came under immediate attack when he opened “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Wednesday with an unvarnished look at the violence in Kenosha following the police shooting of Jacob Blake. Somehow Carlson’s take on the “inevitable and bloody conclusion” of chaos that is not reined in by authorities was slammed by the left who declared he was trying to “incite mayhem and murder.”
Kenosha devolved into anarchy because the authorities abandoned the people. Those in charge, from the governor on down, refused to enforce the law. They’ve stood back and watched Kenosha burn. Are we really surprised that looting and arson accelerated to murder? pic.twitter.com/oul2KUiDi3

Carlson reported on the latest events from the Wisconsin city besieged by rioting since Sunday which turned deadly as three people were shot, with two of the victims dying as a result.
But the Fox News host’s argument that the escalating violence and subsequent deaths could have been prevented if authorities had stepped in unleashed the cancel mob who then converged on Carlson, outrageously accusing him of defending the actions of 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse who was arrested and charged with first-degree intentional homicide.
“So what does that amount to? We’re unsure, a court will decide whether what you just saw qualifies as self-defense. We don’t have more details. We do know why it all happened, though. Kenosha has devolved into anarchy because the authorities in charge of the city abandoned it,” Carlson said.
“People in charge from the governor of Wisconsin on down refused to enforce the law. They stood back and watched Kenosha burn. So are we really surprised this looting and arson accelerated to murder? How shocked are we that 17-year-olds with rifles decided they had to maintain order when no one else would?” he added, in the line that seemed to trigger liberals into a meltdown.

“Everyone can see what was happening in Kenosha. It was getting crazier by the hour… ‘Kill the police, death to America.’ That’s not Iran, it’s Wisconsin. It could have been a dozen other places in the country. The violence has been building unabated for three months now. Every day the mob becomes more radical,” Carlson continued.

Completely ignoring the point Carlson was making, the outraged left continued to condemn him for allegedly advocating something he did not. The Fox News host concluded his monologue with a scathing exposure of the left’s real agenda.
“Our leaders want us to believe this is all a racial conflict, they’re always telling us it is. But they’re lying. It is not a racial conflict. At its deepest level the chaos they have unleashed has very little to do with race. Most Americans are not bigots. Unlike CNN, they’re not fixated on skin color, they don’t really care, most of them,” he said.
“What you watch is more sinister than that. What you are watching is an effort by the academic, left funded by big business, to crush the last remaining resistance to their control of the country and that resistance is an independent American middle class. That’s who they really hate,” Carlson concluded. “This is not a race war. This is a class war.”
Cue the outrage.
This goes beyond racism. Tucker Carlson is advocating and defending murder. https://t.co/14JmvXqBMg

I think this sums up today’s proceedings. “An innocent Black man is killed by police and Tucker Carlson calls him a thug. A guilty white kid murders two people and Tucker Carlson calls him a patriot,”
This is the face of the GOP today.

Look at this headline. This is where we are. Tucker Carlson openly supporting extrajudicial murder by Trump supporters.

An inevitable call to boycott the show’s advertisers – again – was next as well as the hashtag #FireTuckerCarlson.
I almost never get involved with hashtags focused on specific individuals, and don’t really go in for hashtags generally, but what Tucker Carlson is doing right now to incite mayhem and murder by roaming gangs of armed vigilantes absolutely requires Fox News to #FireTuckerCarlson

But those who didn’t allow the left to spew the twisted narrative, countered with another hashtag and slammed the critics for creating the smokescreen to distract from the truth bombs Carlson dropped.
The Left wants to cancel Tucker Carlson (again) because he made some completely correct observations about the anarchy in our streets. We need to drown out their impotent whining by supporting the only guy on cable news who tells the unvarnished truth. #IStandWithTuckerCarlson

The radical Left is trying to take down Tucker Carlson again because nobody on TV exposes them to the extent that he does. He pointed out what everyone knows: When “leaders” cede control of our streets to the mob, chaos ensues. Cities burn. And people die.

Tucker was not encouraging more violence. These left wing snowflakes want to cancel Tucker Carlson, and anyone else who speaks the truth about the left. The Democrats have sold their souls to create this chaos. https://t.co/HdWORhHIX9

Tucker Carlson isn’t justifying the shootings in Kenosha unless you struggle with severe comprehension problems and/or intend only to make bad faith interpretations.
He’s describing why these things happen.

Tucker doubles down instead of bowing to the mob. That’s how it’s done! ✅

#IStandWithTuckerCarlson because somebody on the news has to actually be honest.
