Fox New’s corrupt talking head Tucker Carlson has broken his silence on Monday’s Fourth of July mass shooting in Highland Park, Illinois, and it’s somehow so much worse than we were even prepared for — ultimately appearing to blame the mass murder and others like it on prescription drug problems and lectures from women about privilege.
Carlson wasted absolutely no time in ranting on the topic of Robert Crimo III’s alleged troubled past. Reports have alleged that authorities responded to Crimo’s parents’ house on at least two separate occasions — once when the suspect was threatening to commit suicide, another when he allegedly threatened to kill his family. Reports have revealed that on the suspect’s second encounter with authorities, police removed several knives belonging to Crimo from the home.
“Look at Robert ‘Bobby’ Crimo,” Carlson raged as a photo of the Independence Day shooting came across the scroon. “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?” Carlson asked his viewers, despite the fact that he just described encounters between the suspect and the police.

“Well, maybe because he didn’t stand out,” Tucker answered his own question. “Maybe because there are a lot of young men in America who suddenly look and act a lot like this guy.”
The Fox host went on to add 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 then came this angry diatribe:
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!’
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?
Tucker then went on to rattle off a list of mass shooters who had been prescribed prescription antidepressants.
“So, is there a connection?” Tucker wondered out loud again. “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.”

Tucker Carlson just blamed the 4th of July mass shooting on “mostly women” who “never stop lecturing [men] about their so-called male privilege.” He also blamed “social media, porn, video games,” and “government-endorsed weed.” (h/t @acyn) pic.twitter.com/jpmMstbuvV
