Awful: Liberals Falsely Blame Tucker Carlson for Inspiring Buffalo Mass Shooter

Liberals are falsely blaming Fox News host Tucker Carlson for inspiring the Buffalo mass shooter who killed ten and wounded three others in an apparent racist attack. The alleged shooter who was taken into custody at the scene of the massacre–a Tops grocery store located in a Black neighborhood–is an 18-year-old white male according to police.

The shooter allegedly posted a livestream video of the attack as well as a manifesto with a tick-tock of his plan for the shooting that stated his goal of targeting and killing Black people and an explanation of how he became a racist.

Carlson and Fox were defended by conservative judicial activist Mike Davis, “Disgusting and insane that Democrat operatives are already exploiting the murder of 10 by blaming Tucker Carlson and Fox News. The manifesto cites the internet (specific websites) as his inspiration (not TV)—and has an antisemitic meme attacking Fox News.”

Davis posted screen images from the alleged manifesto that says the shooter was radicalized by racist Internet forums, making no mention of Tucker Carlson, Fox News (except for posting an anti-Semitic meme) or conservative media.

That has not stopped liberals from going on the attack.

Former Clinton White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart, “More blood on the hands of @tuckercarlson and @foxnews this killer used their racist talking points to justify killing 10 people. Carlson won’t stop because as he explained to the NYTimes, it’s good for ratings. Lives be damned. As Carlson will be at judgement day.”
