Tucker Carlson blew up the left with an uncomfortable set of truths on Tuesday, pointing out that mass shooters are despondent males who are hopped up on psychotropic drugs and are typically lectured by feminists on privilege.
The outrage over his comments was off the books as usual after he argued that many mass shooters have been reportedly on prescription drugs at the time of their killing sprees and we constantly hear women on the left lecturing white males on their so-called privilege. He also pointed out the sad fact that American men “inhabit” a life filled with “social media, porn, and video games,” and “government-endorsed weed.”
Carlson’s monologue and comments follow a mass shooting at a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois that resulted in seven dead and over 30 injured. A mentally unstable young, white rapper named Robert Crimo III took to a rooftop with a rifle and shot into the crowd indiscriminately. He reportedly obtained numerous weapons legally and passed at least two background checks.
There were many warning signs concerning Crimo’s mental stability. Police had reportedly been to his home at least twice. Once after he threatened to kill himself and then again when he threatened to kill members of his own family. During that incident, officers removed numerous knives from the residence.
Crimo lived at home with his family, had committed a suicide attempt, threatened to kill his family, and they said nothing when he came home with 5 guns?

“Look at Robert ‘Bobby’ Crimo,” Carlson pointed out. “Would you sell a gun to that guy? Does he seem like a nutcase? Of course, he does.”
“So, why didn’t anyone raise an alarm?” he astutely asked, considering that Crimo’s social media was reportedly full of violent content and threats to kill others.
“Well, maybe because he didn’t stand out,” Carlson noted. “Maybe because there are a lot of young men in America who suddenly look and act a lot like this guy.”
He also commented that young men like Crimo are “numbed by the endless psychotropic drugs that are handed out at every school in the country by crackpots posing as counselors.”
“And of course, they’re angry. They know that their lives will not be better than their parents. They’ll be worse. That’s all but guaranteed. They know that. They’re not that stupid. And yet the authorities in their lives – mostly women – never stop lecturing them about their so-called privilege. ‘You’re male, you’re privileged!'” Carlson asserted causing the left to have a meltdown.
“Imagine that. Try to imagine an unhealthier, unhappier life than that. So, a lot of young men in America are going nuts. Are you surprised?” he remarked, voicing what is obvious to many out there.
Highland Park police says they had two prior encounters with the shooter:

Carlson went on to list numerous mass shooters who were on psychotropic drugs at the time they killed others.
“Eric Harris, the columbine killer was on Zoloft and Luvox. A year earlier, a 15-year-old called Kip Kinkel shot his parents and dozens of classmates. He was on Prozac. In 2005, a 16-year-old called Jeff Weise killed his grandfather and ten kids in Minnesota. He was on Prozac, too. So was 27-year-old Steven Kazmierczak who murdered six people at Northern Illinois University. In 2012, you may recall when 25-year-old James Holmes walked into a movie theater and shot 82 people. He was on Zoloft,” he said.
“The list goes on and on and on and on. It includes the shooter at the Washington Navy Yard in 2013. That would be 34-year-old Aaron Alexis. It also includes Dylan Roof. He’s the 21-year-old who shot up the church in Charleston. Now, he was apparently a racist, and we’ve heard a lot about that. Fine, but we’ve heard next to nothing about the fact that he was taking SSRIs, he and many, many others. You’re not supposed to notice, but some have,” he charged.
“The Journal of Political Psychology once assembled a list of dozens more mass killings, all committed by young people, young men on prescription drugs. So, is there a connection?” Carlson went on to ask. “Well, we don’t know definitively. We do know there are a whole lot more of these drugs being taken by kids than ever before and by than entire population. Who’s not taking some prescription medication at this point? Between 1991 and 2018, total SSRI prescriptions in the United States rose by more than 3,000%. 3,000%!”

He went on to lambaste Democrats over their hypocrisy concerning gun control.
“Does anyone really believe it’s all about guns? No one thinks that. If you really thought that guns caused violence, you would, for example, demand far harsher prosecution of gun possession in the cities. That’s where most of the shooters’ shootings are taking place, but no one’s doing that. Why? Because that’s where Democratic voters live. So, there’s no chance anyone’s going to crack down on them. Instead, politicians are using these tragedies to do what they’ve always wanted to do, which is disarm their political opponents,” Carlson stated during his lengthy monologue.

He surmised that red flag laws and other forms of gun control won’t stop bad or crazy people from killing others. Especially those who are being pressure-cooked in a society that nags over white male privilege and solves problems by pushing drugs.
