During Monday night’s monologue, Tucker Carlson called out Biden’s lie that “white supremacy” is America’s “most lethal threat.”
Tucker drew attention to the nationwide violence that occurred over the weekend during Juneteenth festivities across the United States.
“Just in 2020, last year, more than 750 people were murdered in the city of Chicago,” Tucker said. “And we can say with some confidence that the overwhelming majority of those suspects in the city of Chicago were not members of Q-Anon or white supremacists.”
“How do we know? Informed guess, but sometimes there’s video,” Tucker said before playing clips of a public murder that took place in Chicago and a mob twerking on an EMS ambulance responding to a mass shooting in Oakland.
While Tucker stated that gangs are responsible for 25% of violent crime, he did not entirely explain the nature of the 75% of violent crime that is not done by gangs.
According to police, the bulk of crime in cities such as Philadelphia, Milwaukee, and Chicago is now committed over trivial squabbles and feuds on social media. Most shootings are now sparked by things like someone slamming someone on Facebook, treading on someone’s shoes in a club, or staring someone in the wrong direction.
For example, a “teenage feud” is said to have motivated the shooting in Austin just over a week ago.
A deadly weekend mass shooting in Austin’s famed entertainment district arose from a feud between two groups of Central Texas teenagers, according to a police affidavit filed Wednesday.
Harker Heights High School student Jeremiah Tabb, 17, was arrested at school Monday and remained in Travis County Jail on Wednesday. He is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony punishable by two to 20 years in prison.
[…] In the arrest affidavit filed by Austin police filed in a Travis County district court Wednesday, a wounded male juvenile is quoted as telling detectives at an Austin hospital that he was with friends on East Sixth Street, a famous entertainment strip, when they began exchanging stares with a youth he identified as JT and JT’s friends.
The male juvenile, who was not identified by name, said he had attended the same Killeen middle school as JT, who said to the juvenile’s group, “What y’all wanna do? Y’all wanna fight?” The juvenile said he answered, “It’s whatever,” at which point JT pulled a handgun from his waistband and opened fire. A companion of the juvenile, also a juvenile, drew his own gun and returned fire. One person was killed and more than a dozen others were wounded.
Police showed a yearbook photo of Tabb to the hospitalized juvenile, who identified him as the one who shot him. He told police that Tabb had already shot him in the leg in Killeen a few days earlier. Police in Killeen, 70 miles (113 kilometers) north of Austin, have a complaint on file from that shooting, according to the affidavit.
This was not a well-thought-out shooting.
No extensive socio-economic analysis is needed to understand why “JT” allegedly opened fire into a crowd.
Someone started shooting because they were looking at each other the wrong way.
This is the reality of crime in America.
There was a report saying the public execution in Chicago may have taken place over a fender-bender.
When we had leaders willing to profile and do “stop and frisk” on the demographic committing the overwhelming majority of violent crime and send plainclothes anti-crime units after them, violent crime plummeted even in New York City.
The problem is Republicans these days are just as cowardly as Democrats and are completely unwilling to address the issue for fear of being called “racist.”
Many were paid by billionaires like the Koch brothers (now the Koch brother) to just roll over and join with the Democrats on “criminal justice reform.”
They care more about virtue-signaling about “Juneteenth” than stopping the crime wave that’s followed in the wake of the Floyd riots.
Though throwing open the prisons may get GOP politicians huge donations from billionaires, it doesn’t get them any votes.
It gets us absolutely nothing!
