Tucker mocks Dems unmercifully for take on Ma’Khia Bryant shooting: ‘Let them use knives’

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson reacted Thursday night with a heavy dose of sarcasm to the inane stance taken by many on the left to demonize a police officer who saved a young black girl from a potentially fatal knife attack.

Led by former Obama lieutenant Valerie Jarrett, there was a concerted effort to play down the fact that 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant was attempting to stab another girl when a cop opened fire — according to Jarrett, the officer overreacted. One of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement bemoaned that teens have been having fights involving knives “for eons.” The ridiculous stance showing how far the left is willing to contort itself to further the contrived racist cops killing blacks narrative.

“At a triumphant press conference yesterday, leading Democrats unveiled their findings, which are now a plank in the party’s platform: they’re going to allow children to stab each other,” the host of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” sarcastically said to open the show.

“Stabbing people has long been taboo in this country, especially for those under 18,” he continued. “For decades, young Americans have hidden their switchblades, their stilettos, their K-Bars and machetes. Kids were forced to live as if plunging blades into strangers was something to be ashamed of instead of a normal, heathy part of childhood. But no more. Knife fights are human rights. Stabbing can finally come out of the closet.”

In what may be one of Carlson’s better opening monologues, he likened the stance to a “return to the future.”

“The right to stab has been restored to the pantheon of freedoms our Mayan ancestors enumerated thousands of years ago in our founding document, The Declaration of Diversity,” he proclaimed. “Going forward, allowing children to stab others will be enshrined in law alongside America’s other core foundational rights: the right to commit voter fraud, the right to free body piercings, the right of trans illegal aliens with pituitary disorders to become fighter pilots. These are the very rights upon which this nation was founded — the rights the Democratic Party exists to protect.”

If viewers didn’t know Carlson was sneering at liberals for their take on the incident, they might have thought he was losing it.

Referring to the footage of Bryant being shot, the Fox News host said “you don’t need to guess what was happening when you watch the video.”

“If you listen carefully, you can hear someone say it on the tape: ‘I’m gonna stab the f*** out of you,'” he explained. “There’s no question that she was going to do that. Her hand was in the air. The knife was heading into the down stroke. The other girl was just an instant from being stabbed. So if the cop wanted to save that girl, he had to shoot. So he did.”

Jokingly, he showed a clip form the 1971 Bruce Lee film “The Big Boss,” where the iconic martial artist disarmed a knife-wielding villain within seconds.

“If Bruce Lee can do it in one of his finest feature films, there’s no reason that police officers in Columbus, Ohio can’t do the same thing,” Carlson deadpanned.

 

Carlson rans clip after clip of liberals making the tragedy about race, ignoring that the officer likely saved the life of a black girl with his actions, to include Jason Johnson, a MSNBC contributor, describing Bryant as “an honor roll student who was making TikTok videos on makeup and hair.”

“That’s Jason Johnson of MSNBC,” Carlson informed his viewers. “He’s an accredited scholar. He teaches communication at Morgan State University in Baltimore. Professor Johnson has concluded that if kids can’t continue to stab people in their own driveways, then we’re going to have to abolish the police. Any institution that won’t allow child stabbings doesn’t deserve to exist.”

MSNBC’s often factually wrong host Joy Reid was also featured downplaying a knife attack — Carlson noted that the phony grew up in Denver, Colo., is the daughter of a professor, and went to Harvard.

“I remember fights in even high school or even younger than that where a kid brought a pen knife or something to school and teachers were able to defuse that and they didn’t have guns,” Reid said in a clip Carlson ran.

Closing out with “Obama bagman Valerie Jarrett,” Carlson concluded: “Let them use knives! Or else.”
