Fox News host Tucker Carlson had to be chomping at the bit to get back on television Monday night after having to endure an entire weekend of many in the leftist media blaming him and others for the mass shooting at a grocery store in Buffalo, New York on Saturday afternoon. Carlson’s show was just opening Tucker Carlson Tonight, to defend himself and his fellow conservatives, he did not disappoint.
Carlson opened by pointing out the media’s misdirected coverage of the shooting, which focused on the shooter’s motives. “A teenager dressed in mock military uniform entered a Buffalo grocery store and opened fire on more than 12 people with a gun. No doubt you’ve seen accounts of this on the news. What you probably haven’t seen are details about any of the ten Americans who were murdered in that store in Buffalo.”
This is, he said. “because the coverage hasn’t been about them” It is not about the gunman who killed ten innocent victims. Carlson then pivoted to the obsessive media coverage of the shooter’s manifesto which they claim proved that he and others in conservative media influenced him to commit mass murder: “you’ve probably heard this document described as a racist manifesto. That’s not quite right. It’s definitely racist, bitterly so.”
Carlson instead declared the “letter is a rambling pastiche of slogans and internet memes, some of which flatly contradict one another.” Further proving Fox News was not to blame for the tragedy that occurred over the weekend, Carlson noted the shooter “It seems that Fox News is part a larger conspiracy against him. He writes like a mental patient. Disjointed, irrational, paranoid.”
Carlson concluded his remarks by emphasizing that there is no truth to the Buffalo murderer of the grocery store. “you a lot about the ruthlessness and dishonesty of our political leadership” He also said that “within minutes of Saturday’s shooting before all of the bodies of those ten murdered Americans had even been identified by their loved ones, professional Democrats had begun a coordinate campaign to blame those murders on their political opponents.”
Leftist media will try to discredit Americans they don’t agree with. The media and culture of America are toxic. Those who keep trying to divide America must be held responsible.

FNC’s Tucker Carlson Tonight
TUCKER CARLSON: On Saturday, a young man dressed in mock military uniform entered a Buffalo grocery store and opened fire on more than 12 people with a gun. No doubt you’ve seen accounts of this on the news. You probably don’t know the names of any of those ten Americans murdered at that Buffalo store. Many people don’t know the names of these men, and may even not be able to identify their loved ones. We know most of their race was black. They are merely black, and not much has been written about them. It hasn’t been their story. Peyton Gendron (18 years old) was the actual gunman. Gendron was mentally ill. Everyone around him, including teachers, knew this. Gendron, who threatened to murder classmates during a school graduation ceremony, was taken to mental health care less than a year before.
Gendron wrote a 180-page letter explaining his motivations on Saturday after fulfilling his longstanding threat of lighting a fire in a crowd. This document has been described by many as a racist manifesto. That’s not quite right. It’s definitely racist, bitterly so. Gendron reduces people to their skin color, that’s the essence of her racism and it’s immoral.
However, what he has written is not a manifesto. The document is not intended to be a guideline for the creation of an extreme political party. This is even more true if you consider it a potential source of inspiration for a revolution against racism. Whoever claims it is is lying, or hasn’t actually read it. Instead, Gendron’s letter is a rambling pastiche of slogans and internet memes, some of which flatly contradict one another.
It isn’t recognizably right-wing or left-wing. It isn’t really politically. This document is insane. This document is the result of an organized and diseased mind. Gendron claims that Fox News may be part of a global conspiracy against Gendron. He writes like a mental patient. Disjointed, irrational, paranoid.
Now, that’s true, not that it makes the atrocities he committed easier to bear. It doesn’t matter who the murderer was or what he voted for if you had your daughter murdered Saturday night in Buffalo. The truth about Peyton Gendron is revealing about our corrupt political leaders’ ruthlessness, and dishonesty. Within minutes of Saturday’s shooting before all of the bodies of those ten murdered Americans had even been identified by their loved ones, professional Democrats had begun a coordinate campaign to blame those murders on their political opponents. It was done, and the victims told us that Peyton Gendron was Donald Trump’s son. Trumpism was responsible for mass killing in Buffalo. It was for this reason that we had to suspend the First Amendment. That’s hardly an exaggeration of what they’re saying.
