The left has collectively joined in mass to blame Republicans for the Buffalo, NY, grocery store shooting. This is simply not true. Republicans would like to see more of the public carrying firearms.
Yes, the shooting in Buffalo, New York, had racial motives, but that doesn’t mean that Tucker Carlson is to blame. Carlson has been taking a beating from the media and politicians in an unwarranted attack. But he finally fired back, which made them look like children.
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) wrote a letter to Fox News executives that started, “I write to urge you to immediately cease the reckless amplification of the so-called ‘Great Replacement’ theory …”
While pointing to some parts of the shooter’s manifesto, Schumer tried to point blame at Carlson, rather than admit that the killer specifically wrote in that manifesto that he didn’t like Fox News.
The shooter also said that he could be on the left or right but came from a socialist ideology and “constantly moved further to the right. I fall in the mild-moderate authoritarian left category, and I would prefer to be called a populist.”
Schumer responded to Carlson’s invite to debate the letter on Twitter, saying, “[email protected] invited me on his show tonight to debate the letter I sent to @FoxNews. I’m declining. Tucker Carlson needs to stop promoting the racist, dangerous ‘Replacement Theory.’”
If Schumer wants to show America that his beliefs and ideas are superior then why not go on Carlson’s show and show the world? Schumer said that Carlson spouts dangerous rhetoric that harms the Black, Hispanic and Jewish communities, but explain to the public what he means by that? That would be the perfect way for Schumer to have a “gotcha” moment in front of Carlson’s supporters.
What about Schumer’s comments? He’s said things that are much worse than anything Carlson has said. In 2020, Schumer riled up an already tumultuous crowd outside the Supreme Court, addressing Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, screaming, “You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Schumer also referred to the protests outside of conservative Supreme Court justices’ houses as, “the American way to peacefully protest.” Never mind the fact that these protests are against federal law.
