Fox News host Tucker Carlson started his show on Tuesday night with a fiery monologue lambasting the “intentional” crisis involving the poor and homeless in American cities.

Carlson asked “what happened” on his show, “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” amid an apparent collapse of American society, lamenting that “at every intersection, there are beggars. It’s what we used to imagine India was like, but this is not Calcutta.”

Carlson got straight to it: “the short answer is our leaders did this.”

“No matter what they tell you, homelessness is not an act of God. It’s not the result of economic collapse in this country. America does not run out of housing,” he added, noting that it’s “not complicated” to see how liberal policies have contributed – and even caused – much of the current crisis.

“Instead, a determined group of well-funded ideologues decided to make it easier to live on the streets in this country while doing drugs. Therefore, many more people now live on the streets while doing drugs. See? Not complicated,” Carlson told viewers.

He highlighted the municipal authorities’ legal inability to address the situation, as per Martin v. Boise (2019), in which the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that cities cannot impose anti-encampment laws unless there are sufficient shelter beds available for their homeless populations. The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear challenges to the ruling.

The city of Seattle, Washington, was among those Carlson called out as he played a clip in which the city is reported to have spent $50 million to purchase several apartment buildings for the purposes of housing approximately 165 homeless people. To Carlson, this was the crime of crimes, as he lambasted the city.

“Stunning views of the Space Needle and Puget Sound. Do you have one of those? Well, crackheads do,” he said.

This was in contrast to the $10 million Seattle allotted to the small business fund intended to prevent local businesses from going bankrupt under Covid-19 restrictions, as Carlson noted.

“So the city’s priorities could not be clearer than that. You lavish money on the least productive, most anti-social parasites in our society and then you punish Americans who work for a living. Got it?” he asked.

Carlson contended that the “solution is as simple as the problem,” after highlighting the plight in other Democrat-controlled locales such as San Francisco and New York.

“Here’s a solution: Stop putting up with it. Say no. No, you can’t smoke meth in the park. You’re not allowed to crap on the sidewalk. Pull up your pants and get the hell out of here. Go somewhere with lower standards. Head for a place where politicians don’t care about their people because we do care,” he exclaimed.

“And that’s why we’re hauling your tent to a landfill and cutting off your checks today. You are a drug addict. Get a job or leave. This is our city. You are not allowed to wreck it. You didn’t build it.”
