Tucker Torches CNN, MSNBC for 'Encouraging' Riots and Spreading Lies



Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson was on fire Wednesday night as he blasted CNN and MSNBC liberals for “encouraging” riots and spreading “demonstrable” lies in the wake of a Kentucky grand jury’s decision not to charge Louisville police officers in the death of Breonna Taylor. Carlson’s condemnation of the two lesser networks came during his opening monologue, and before the end of the hour, sad news broke that a cop was shot at the so-called “protest” there.

During his opening comments, Carlson played a soundbite of the wise words of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron (R): “If we simply act on emotion or outrage, then there is no justice. Mob justice is not justice. Justice sought by violence is not justice.”

“‘Mob justice is not justice,’ that used to be the most obvious possible observation particularly coming from someone in the South, which for a long time had a problem with mob justice,” Carlson proclaimed. “You probably thought we probably all agree that was bad. You probably heard the Attorney General of Kentucky say that and think, ‘Hmm, that sounds sensible to me.’”

He pointed out how the radicals over at CNN were “enraged” by those words and “attacked” the Kentucky AG. He then played this soundbite of CNN host Brianna Keilar, which NewsBusters’s Curtis Houck had documented:

I question the judgment of the Kentucky attorney general saying, quote, “Mob justice is not justice.” He said, “it becomes revenge.” [Transition] That word “the mob” and the President having said that if Joe Biden wins the mob wins, that’s what he says. We know this is very politically loaded language.

 

 

“Look at yourself in the mirror CNN anchor, what are you doing,” he demanded rhetorically. “You know what you are doing, you are encouraging violence. Criticizing violence is, quote, ‘very politically loaded language?’ She’s scolding us? Really? That’s what they’re saying.”

Next up was the disgusting comments over on MSNBC, including nutty Joy Reid claiming: “Your death is irrelevant to the law in the state of Kentucky, your death doesn’t matter, your life doesn’t matter. This was a black lives don’t matter ruling.”

Carlson also showed off this “WTF” moment featuring chronic Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferer Nicolle Wallace and “journalism” professor Jason Johnson:

WALLACE: If you’re not safe in your house and you are not safe on your streets – WTF. I mean, where do we go from here?

JOHNSON: You’re not safe anywhere because I can’t go anywhere, Nicolle. If I go jogging I could end up like Ahmaud Arbery. You can’t go anywhere if you’re black.

“It’s all such a lie. It’s a lie. It’s a demonstrable lie. The statistics don’t back it up, the experience of your life no matter what color you are, doesn’t back it up,” Carlson pushed back. “And the fact that hundreds of thousands of people every year move here who are black, to the United States, is living refutation of what they just said. Nothing about that it is true. And they know it’s not true.”

Calling out how the media’s “unified message” was that America was some kind of racist “dystopia,” Carlson explained that their goal was to help fulfill Joe Biden’s election threat: “If enough property burns, if enough public streets are impassible, in the end, people may decide, ‘I’ll vote for Joe Biden to make it stop.’”

DANIEL CAMERON (Kentucky attorney general): If we simply act on emotion or outrage, then there is no justice. Mob justice is not justice. Justice sought by violence is not justice.

TUCKER CARLSON: “Mob justice is not justice,” that used to be the most obvious possible observation particularly coming from someone in the South, which for a long time had a problem with mob justice. You probably thought we probably all agree that was bad. You probably heard the Attorney General of Kentucky say that and think, “Hmm, that sounds sensible to me.”

But over at CNN, they were enraged. CNN knows that mob justice isn’t just worth having, in fact it’s the substance of the Democratic platform in 2020. So, they attacked him for saying. Watch this.

BRIANNA KEILAR: I question the judgment of the Kentucky attorney general saying, quote, “Mob justice is not justice.” He said, “it becomes revenge.” [Transition] That word “the mob” and the President having said that if Joe Biden wins the mob wins, that’s what he says. We know this is very politically loaded language.

CARLSON: Look at yourself in the mirror CNN anchor, what are you doing? You know what you are doing, you are encouraging violence. Criticizing violence is, quote, “very politically loaded language?” She’s scolding us? Really? That’s what they’re saying.

You will hear CNN anchor’s lecture Kentucky’s attorney general for calling out rioters for destroying businesses but you won’t hear them say a word about what aired on MSNBC today. We were watching. Here it is.

JOY REID: Your death is irrelevant to the law in the state of Kentucky, your death doesn’t matter, your life doesn’t matter. This was a black lives don’t matter ruling.

[Transition]

NICOLLE WALLACE: If you’re not safe in your house and you are not safe on your streets – WTF. I mean, where do we go from here?

JASON JOHNSON: You’re not safe anywhere because I can’t go anywhere, Nicolle. If I go jogging I could end up like Ahmaud Arbery. You can’t go anywhere if you’re black.

CARLSON: It’s all such a lie. It’s a lie. It’s a demonstrable lie. The statistics don’t back it up, the experience of your life no matter what color you are, doesn’t back it up. And the fact that hundreds of thousands of people every year move here who are black, to the United States, is living refutation of what they just said. Nothing about that it is true. And they know it’s not true. The guy who said it had a PHD. ‘You can’t go anywhere if you are black.’ Yeah, he says from a TV studio.

But that’s a unified message of the American media. Again, they know it’s not true. They know that Taylor didn’t die in a no-knock police raid. Her death is sad, it’s a tragedy, but it wasn’t an act of racism. There is no evidence for that and if there was we would admit it. But they don’t care. All they care about is getting enough people to believe that this dystopia that they describe is real.

Why? It’s an election year. If enough property burns, if enough public streets are impassible, in the end, people may decide, “I’ll vote for Joe Biden to make it stop.” But what then? If Joe Biden wins on November 3rd, billion-dollar corporations like Hertz’s will be fine. The billionaires paying for all of this, stocking the U-Haul with riot supplies will be fine. But where will you be? You will be on your own.
