Tucker Carlson Breaks Down YouTube Shooting

Tucker Carlson of Fox News began his recent show predicting media will very lightly and eventually all together drop the shooting at YouTube’s California headquarters.

Transcript as follows:

CARLSON: Well, good evening and welcome to “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

A shooting yesterday at YouTube’s headquarters in California wounded three people but left only the shooter dead.

The killer was an Iranian refugee named Nasim Aghdam. Apparently, Aghdam believed that YouTube’s content policies have somehow sabotaged her efforts to become a digital video star. Enraged, she drove to the company’s headquarters and opened fire. That’s what we know.

Now, let’s pause for a moment and pretend this is not the 8 p.m. show on Fox News. Let’s pretend it’s somewhere else on the dial. Maybe “CNN” or “MSNBC” or actually any other cable channel or newspaper in America.

If that were true, by definition, we’d have to draw hard-and-fast conclusions from this tragedy using the limited facts that are available. We don’t really know much at this stage, but sweeping dumb generalizations are what the media do. We would do that. And, of course, we’d need a very specific script in order to make those generalizations.

So, what do we conclude from what happened yesterday? Well, first off, the shooter was a woman. She was female. So, clearly, America has a problem with toxic feminity. And we need to address that crisis right away, starting with more university panel shaming an entire gender. Somebody alert the HR department to this.

And then, there is the gun. We focus relentlessly on the gun because nothing is more pivotal in a shooting than the weapon that was used. It’s always the gun’s fault. Always.

The shooter, in this case, used a Smith & Wesson 9 mm handgun. Those guns need to be banned tomorrow, along with all other assault pistols. Now, if you disagree with that, you’re evil.

Next, the shooter was a vegan and a supporter of PETA. Therefore, PETA is now a terrorist organization. Anyone who supports PETA, even though supporters who disapprove of mass shootings, is a monster and has blood on his hands.

Let’s hope that “CNN” hosts a town hall meeting where YouTube employees can scream at PETA spokesman. They deserved to be screamed at. They caused the shooting.

But, wait, media outlets aren’t reaching any of those conclusions. Why not? Well, because there’s no obvious way to use this shooting to advance the objectives of the Democratic Party. So, the media will stop talking about it soon. That’s how corrupt they are.

They’re also incredibly stupid, especially on the subject of firearms. The people yelling at you about guns on television aren’t sure what end the bullet comes out. They’re kids. They’re children with all the ignorance and moral certainty of fifth graders.

We can show you a million examples of that because they are everywhere, but here’s the most amusing one we’ve seen recently. It happened yesterday.

This is MSNBC’s resident genius Nicolle Wallace mistaking the opening of a soda can for gunfire. Watch.


NICOLLE WALLACE, “MSNBC” HOST, “DEADLINE: WHITE HOUSE”: Steve Smith, I always go back to the horror of 9/11 and the complete reliance – we’re in our tribes. We’re in our corners most of our lives. I think we just heard some gunshots. Should we listen to that for a second, control room? That’s not a gunshot.


CARLSON: Not gunshots? No, Nicolle, not gunshots. Pretty funny. But be certain to listen very carefully if she lectures about the Second Amendment because she knows a lot about it.

    Are you smarter than a fifth grader ? NOT MSNBC !

    • E Scott Hollingsworth

      Hell! A 2nd grader is smarter than BSNBC.

  • Connie Mays

    MSNBC. The Most Left of the Leftists. They want to decide everything for everybody. For many years, they’ve been trying to outlaw guns – what’s next? Sling shots? After all, you could send a rock into somebody’s car – or something. MSNB -the most left of the broadcasters. They’d like to tell us all what to eat, what to read, what to wear, what’s “proper” and what’s not. Make ALL of our decisions for us. We cannot let up for one moment, or they’ll be in our houses, our vehicles, our churches, our schools (already are – most “educators” are lefties and they’re teaching our kids the same).

    • Estell Newton

      I forgot about sling shots. And there is always the kitchen cooks at the schools. What if they really got angry at the students?

      • rad77red

        thanx !!!!!

        • Estell Newton

          You’re welcome.

    • RicknRedmond

      Just look what David did to Goliath.

  • Estell Newton

    The left wing is so ignorant. Doesn’t anyone remember when pipe bombs were all over school campuses? What about the idiot that ran around a Michigan shopping center with vials of tear gas? That could have very easily have been mustard gas or some other killing agent. What about the people who kill using their cars? Should we be outlawing motor vehicles? And what about all the plane crashes? Should planes be outlawed? And then there’s all the cruise ships. Should they be outlawed too? And what about the notorious kitchen knives? They can kill. What about bows and arrows and crossbows? Are they next on the chopping block? Guns are not the problem. And putting more restrictions on them won’t help. The criminals will always find a way to get them. More gun laws will only put the population at more risk. We have open carry where I live. No problem.

    • rad77red

      I’m going to move to your state . It sounds safer !!!

      • Estell Newton

        Unless you go to cities like Springfield or St Louis, it is safer than most areas.

    • Terry Butts

      Their FLAWED logic that it will save lives only applies to DEFENSIVE WEAPONS that are protected by the second amendment as a means of PREVENTING tyrants from taking over our government.

      Proving it is not actually about saving anyone or stopping crime but about POLITICIANS wanting to follow the likes of hitler who are IN FEAR of how an armed populace that follows the constitution would react when they do.

      Remember we have already had judges grumbling over the fact there are no “REEDUCATION” camps to send people who BROKE NO LAWS to simply because they refused to be POLITICALLY CORRECT and GIVE UP their religious beliefs just to be employed or own a business.

      In fact many politicians have outed their desire to KILL OFF those who oppose their political agenda in their remarks about LEGAL organizations that protect ACTUAL constitutional rights of people specifically the NRA and other groups like them.

      Thing is they already got Bombs banned/restricted as much as possible so now they move on to the next thing CRIMINALS use because in the mind of the liberals its the INANIMATE OBJECTS fault not that of the actual criminal and carrying on about ALREADY BANNED nationwide items being used as weapons in a crime PROVES they lied about the BAN/RESTRICTION taking it out of the hands of criminals.

      Just look at London its CRIME RATE including ARMED WITH GUNS criminals is now exceeding NEW YORK.


      And remember LONDON already has the RESTRICTIONS the anti gun politicians are trying to impose upon the US on the FALSE CLAIM crime rates would drop that it would SAVE LIVES.

      Yes it is strange how our media made no such similar claims about vehicles such as.

      1) RESTRICTING truck capacity. Several SMALLER trucks would deliver the same amount as the one larger one so no need to use a SINGLE HIGH CAPACITY truck when several SMALLER CAPACITY ones are just as good.

      2) RESTRICTING THE speed of the truck after all there is no need to GO THAT FAST it will still arrive even if we restrict it to 1 MPH to ensure no pedestrian is harmed if hit so no need to go 50+ MPH just to get their in a few hours rather than a few weeks.

      Or any of the other ANTI GUN nonsense that could also be applied to ANY INANIMATE OBJECT a criminal harms others with even after that one CRIMINAL in another nation murdered 84 and injured 202 in a SINGLE ATTACK using a “HIGH CAPACITY ASSAULT TRUCK” as his weapon of choice for the crime. Who know how many more if not for his attempt to go through an area that disabled the vehicle.

      • Estell Newton

        I agree. And guns cannot be carried or even owned in England. Cops aren’t even allowed to carry them. There are far too many other ways to kill and just as effective as a gun. What needs to be banned is the left wing liberals. And the progressives are just as dangerous. God help the world if any of them get in power.

        • rad77red

          thanx !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Babbo

    Tucker always cuts to the chase and explains even so the mainstream media might be able to understand (doubtful, not remedial enough.)

  • Janis

    Nicole Wallace is the biggest moron on MSNBC. Thank God this lying alleged Republican came out of the closet and exposed that she has always secretly been a leftist deep stater like the Bushes.

  • generalJed

    What the media purposely does not tell anyone is that, after firearms are banned from civilian ownership, police use will be banned, then our military’s firearms will be banned. This will allow the U.N.’s Army to control our country at will, like some third world country. Never hand in or register ANY firearm, even black powder! Be ready to be called up by your local militia, or form one when it comes time!
