Those who said that Fox News couldn’t go any lower ate some serious crow last night when Tucker Carlson offered justification for the first degree murder of two protesters in Kenosha, WI.
Carlson painted 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse as a victim who “tried to run from the mob,” adding that Rittenhouse’s actions may qualify as “self defense.” “How shocked are we that 17-year-olds with rifles decided they had to maintain order when no one else would? Kenosha devolved into anarchy because the authorities abandoned the people. Those in charge, from the governor on down, refused to enforce the law. They stood back and watched Kenosha burn. Are we really surprised that looting and arson accelerated to murder?”
Well, guess what America? Now you have the president’s personal PR firm, masquerading as news, trusted by millions of people, justifying intentional murder by vigilantes armed with weapons of war.
Can it get any lower?
