Tucker: There is something really wrong

The only way to stop these killings is to figure out why American society is producing so many violent young men

Published

Tucker looks at possible causes of the recent increase in violence in America and suggests getting to the root of the problem rather than continuing to ineffectively treat the symptoms.

“On May 14th, 18-year-old Peyton Gendron murdered ten shoppers in a grocery store in Buffalo, and then yesterday, 18-year-old Salvador Ramos killed 19 small children and two teachers in an elementary school in Texas.”

“Both Gendron and Ramos were very obviously mentally ill. The people around them new that. Both killers had told other people they planned to commit a mass shooting, and then they did. So, what can we learn from this? Well, the first, most obvious answer is that the system in place didn’t work. Gendron’s teacher sent him to a mental hospital for evaluation. They knew he was a threat. They tried their best, he committed a massacre anyway.”

“So, we know for a fact that what we’re doing isn’t working, but we should also be honest enough to acknowledge that it’s very hard to know what to do instead. The problem is that the human mind is much more complex and harder to control than we’d like to admit.”

“The only way to stop these killings is to figure out why American society is producing so many violent young men. There is a reason they’re acting this way. What is that reason? And it’s not just mass shooters, by the way, the ones you see on television. It’s gangbangers and carjackers and armed robbers and indiscriminate haters who push strangers in front of subway trains.”

“We have a lot of people like that in this country all of a sudden, more than you’d like to think about. Why are they acting this way? That’s the only question that matters. Of course, it’s the only question our leaders hate to address because there’s nothing in it for them.”

“This is bigger than a single mass shooting or even two of them in ten days. There has been a huge increase in violence in America, on our streets, on public transportation, in our schools. It’s not a guess, it’s measurable.”

“From January 1st to April 10th of this year, robberies in the New York transit system are up more than 70% year over year. Felony assaults in the subway have increased by 28%, grand larceny, according to the NYPD is up by more than 100%. Those are all crimes of violence, and that’s just underground. The same thing is happening on the streets.”

“It didn’t used to happen. It’s happening now — why? It’s not guns, it’s not the gun lobby. More Americans had guns at home than they do now, according to the Rand Corporation, which studied this. 45% of American homes had a gun in 1980. In 2016, that had dropped to 32%.”

“So, the problem is not that we’re more armed than we were. The problem is that people have changed. Young men have changed, they’re more violent. Why? That’s the bipartisan conversation we need to have now, and that conversation has been drowned out by lunatic attention-seekers who are hoping to win the next election. But we don’t need them now. Never mind your election. There’s something really wrong, and we can figure it out if we try. There are probably a lot of causes.”

“Well, is anyone studying what murderers, not just mass murderers but all murderers have in common? Instead of telling us about the gun lobby? Please, no one believes that. And why, by the way, is the answer to mass shootings always universal gun confiscation? Shouldn’t we be focused on the people who did it, on the dangerous people?”

“Let’s be serious about this. Children died. It’s real. Stop with the talking points, be honest.”

The only people who liked Jeffrey Epstein were his friends, and some of them are clearly happy he’s dead

You don’t want to live in a country where it’s possible to murder people in federal lockup, cover up the killings and then get away with them.

Tucker recounts the strange circumstances surrounding Jeffrey Epstein’s death and investigation surround it. Why has it gone nowhere after 3 years, and why don’t the answers we have add up? Highlights include:

“On Saturday morning, August 10, 2019, William Barr was working in his home office when his chief of staff called to say that Jeffrey Epstein had just been found dead in his cell in New York City.”

“Barr was shocked and upset to hear this. His first reaction, as he recounts in his memoir, was to worry that some people in America might not buy the idea that Jeffrey Epstein had killed himself. ‘No one’s going to believe it was a suicide,’ Barr fretted to his chief of staff, ‘There will be conspiracy theories all over the place.'”

“Now, that’s a pretty odd response, if you think about it. At that time, there was no way that Bill Barr could have known for sure how Jeffrey Epstein had died. So, you would think, as the Attorney General, his first concern would be finding out what actually happened. But, instead, his first concern was worry that the public might jump to unapproved conclusions about what happened. And, in some ways, Bill Barr was right to worry. Many Americans did not believe that Jeffrey Epstein had killed himself, given the strange circumstances of his death.”

“You don’t want to live in a country where it’s possible to murder people in federal lockup, cover up the killings and then get away with them. That’s scary. That should not be allowed in this or any other civilized place. But in the case of Jeffrey Epstein, it appears that it was allowed, and on one level you can see why it was. This is one of those crimes that has no natural constituency pushing to solve it.”

“The only people who liked Jeffrey Epstein were his friends, and some of them are clearly happy he’s dead.”

“Why do so many public officials persist in claiming that Jeffrey Epstein attempted suicide in prison once before, on July 23, 2019? Now, that’s a very convenient claim if you’re trying to convince people that Jeffrey Epstein killed himself, but there’s no evidence that it’s true. In fact, Jeffrey Epstein himself adamantly denied ever trying to kill himself, in prison or out. He denied this to his friends, to his lawyers, and to prison psychologists. He said, instead, that he was injured by another inmate.”

“Who moved Jeffery Epstein’s body, and who gave the order to do that? Epstein was discovered the morning of August 10 by a part time prison guard called Michael Thomas, who amazingly was the very same guard who discovered him in fetal position on the floor after his previous falsely reported suicide attempt.”

“But by the time the EMTs arrived, Epstein’s body had been moved to the prison infirmary, that’s a clear violation of federal policy — who ordered that? And though Jeffrey Epstein had been dead for at least two hours when the guard found him in his cell, by the time the EMTs arrived, Epstein was clad in a hospital gown.”

“That means that somebody, for some reason, cut away Jeffrey Epstein’s prison uniform and redressed his stiffening corpse in new clothes – Why would anyone do that? And then to make it even stranger, Jeffrey Epstein’s corpse was intubated. Air was blown into his lifeless lungs. It’s not clear why.”

Antifa is back in force

What you have here is the official endorsement of domestic terrorism from the highest level of the Democratic party. And why wouldn’t you? This is their militia.

They’re baaaaaack … as if they’d gone anywhere. Tucker looks at Antifa’s latest actions, and guessing by who’s defending them, who’s benefiting. Highlights include:

“Antifa is the armed instrument of the permanent ‘Democratic’ establishment in Washington. Their job is to mobilize when politically necessary. Now, this is a new thing in the United States, but political militia are a common feature in third world politics, they’re a staple in Haiti. In our country, however, only one party has them, the Democratic party. They’re the only ones with armed militia in the streets. So, with that in mind, it’s interesting to note that ‘Antifa’ is back in force, and that’s probably not a very good sign for Joe Biden. If nothing else, ‘antifa’ has a solid track record of getting rid of sitting presidents.”

“It’s always the same script. Remember when Ali Velshi stood in front of a burning police station in Minneapolis and told you that protests were ‘not generally speaking unruly’, except for, of course, the torched police station right behind us, or when CNN told us the ‘protests’ … the fiery riots in Kenosha were fiery but mostly peaceful. Meanwhile, people were being killed. They’re still saying it, but this time they’re even lazier and more corrupt. That ‘freelance reporter’ David Pisner you just saw on CNN is not actually a reporter, he’s a professional Antifa apologist.”

“Why this particular brand of dishonesty? Why are the same people who warned you about ‘right-wing extremists walking around the Capitol’ running cover for domestic terrorism in the city they’re based in? Keep in mind, this is CNN saying this, and it was CNN whose world headquarters, CNN Center in Atlanta, was destroyed by antifa in May of 2020 after St. George Floyd died. Remember that?”

“CNN is not actually on the left. They have no ideology or beliefs. CNN is above all and always foursquare on the side of the people in charge, always, that’s who they run cover for. So, they’re not actually defending antifa, they’re defending the people who benefit from antifa, and that’s the Democratic party.”

“What you have in effect here is the official endorsement of domestic terrorism from the highest level of the Democratic party, and why wouldn’t you? Again, this is their militia. These are their state sanctioned shock troops, and they are effectively immune from criticism. So, you go to jail for owning a 10-round magazine, but they get to do whatever they want.”
