The Kenosha shooter incident
Tucker Carlson: This week, Tucker sparked outrage against himself, once again, when he appeared to justify the killing of the two people during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
He asked his viewers in the Fox News: “How shocked are we that 17-year-olds with rifles decided they had to maintain order when no one else would?”
After this remark, he has been a constant backlash for his; the critics have been calling for his dismissal. Even with all these controversies arising, it isn’t new to Carlson; he has been a major controversy risers from time to time; he expresses his views freely in his nightly program, which is one of the most viewed in cable news.
The clarification if the remarks
A Fox News representative said on Thursday that the company’s executives had no comment on Carlson’s remarks about Rittenhouse. But the network did cite the full text of the segment to demonstrate that the host meant to criticize law enforcement, and not justify the actions of a culprit.
According to the transcript that was made viral to justify what Carlson’s said:
“Kenosha’s devolved into anarchy because the authorities in charge of the city abandoned it. People in charge of the governor of Wisconsin on down refused to enforce the law. They stood back, and they watched Kenosha burn. So are we really surprised that looting and arson accelerated to murder?”
The rallying support to his defense
There are a minority of people who are willing to defend him. At the same time, some believe that it is risky to raise Controversial issues in Hollywood.
Robert Davi came in his support with the tweet: “My message to @jonfavs and the rest of (the) monkeys calling for the crucifixion of @TuckerCarlson — Can you handle the truth!”
Nick Searcy, who had been the pat of FX’s show for five years, told Newsweek that it was hard to believe that leftists in the media and in the Democratic party are trying to cancel Tucker Carlson because he stood up for the concept of self-defense.
