Like many of his viewers, Tucker Carlson lives in a state of perpetual victimhood. Despite the fact that the Fox News host grew up wealthy, attending European boarding schools, it always seems like he thinks he has been somehow wronged.In mid-May, 10 people were killed at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York. The shooter, who was targeting black people, is obsessed with the Great Replacement Theory. Tucker Carlson has been a regular proponent of the theory. And since many have pointed that out, the Fox host believes that he’s the victim in this situation.
Carlson ranted during his Monday show, “Because rhetoric has its own internal logic, you’ve experienced it, you can talk yourself into things. We’ve all done that. Democrats are doing it right now. And what they’re talking themselves into right now is quote, ‘something worse.’ It’s scary. It’s time to pull back. It’s time to deescalate. Otherwise, this is going to get really ugly, really soon.”
It is pretty easy to argue that it has already gotten quite ugly. The Buffalo shooter wasn’t the first to be inspired to kill over being replaced. There was a similar incident in El Paso Texas in 2019, where 22 people were killed.
