Fox News host Tucker Carlson responded to a gunman opening fire at a King Soopers grocery store in Boulder, Colo., killing 10 people including a police officer, to point out how CNN was transfixed on the perceived skin color of the shooter — at least, until the suspected gunman was identified as 21-year-old Syrian immigrant, Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa.
Nonetheless, former President Barack Obama managed to shift the focus to racism in responding to the shooting, which prompted the host of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to rip him for being “a racial arsonist” out to further divide America.
“So this is what ‘wokeness’ is,” Carlson said of the focus on color. “This is how you see the world when you’ve been so corrupted by ideological mania that you consider even a mass shooting a perfect opportunity to push your race-based political agenda. He was a white man. That’s all you needed to know.”
The problem being, the left has already determined that an Arab cannot be white, no matter how pale their skin is, because they are oppressed.
Carlson showed examples of white men being attacked by those on the left early on, wondering “how long the rich and the powerful can continue this, can keep attacking a single racial group before our country breaks apart.”

Noting that there aren’t many facts known about Alissa, Carlson said, “That did not prevent the usual tragedy buzzards from circling the crime scene and speculating in the most destructive possible ways about what might have happened.”
People like Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn… and Obama. There are also those in the media pushing the largely fabricated white supremacy narrative.
“That’s the culprit, no matter what color the criminal was,” Carlson said. “It doesn’t matter what the criminal’s color was because it’s systemic racism. Like carbon monoxide, it’s an invisible poison.”
“That is suddenly a very common view on the left,” he continued. “It’s certainly Barack Obama’s position. More than any other contemporary American leader. Barack Obama is a racial arsonist. He emerges at our most vulnerable moments to deepen the wounds that divide us. He sows hate. Why does Barack Obama do this? It would take a psychiatrist to answer that question fully, though it seems obvious that deep loathing of some kind plays a role. It must.”
If ever there was an accurate assessment of Barack Hussein Obama, perhaps the most divisive president in American history, that would be it.
But Carlson wasn’t finished.
“Tuesday, Obama took a break from being one of the richest men in the world to issue a statement blaming “racism and misogyny” for Monday’s killings,” he said. “So a guy who appears to be white shoots a group of white people and Barack Obama calls it racism.”
“How exactly does that work? Can you speak slowly and tell us?” Carlson concluded. “Well, the former president didn’t say, but he didn’t need to. Barack Obama had managed to divide Americans a little more than they were yesterday. And so, from his perspective, mission accomplished.”
The former president released a statement this week largely focused on gun control.
“Michelle and I grieve with the families of the victims of the shooting in Boulder, just as we grieve with the families of the people killed in Atlanta and everyone else who has lost a loved one to gun violence,” Obama said in a statement, before denouncing “these kinds of random, senseless acts.”
“It is long past time for those with the power to fight this epidemic of gun violence to do so,” he added. “It will take time to root out the disaffection, racism and misogyny that fuels so many of these senseless acts of violence. But we can make it harder for those with hate in their hearts to buy weapons of war.”
While there will be no fact-checking from the Big Tech liberals who silenced former President Donald Trump, the gunman did not have “weapons of war.”
