(National Sentinel)Â Double Standard: As hisÂ Fox News program opened Wednesday night, host Tucker Carlson ripped into the legacy media for its hands-off approach to the shooting at YouTube’s headquarters earlier this week.
As he began, Carlson told his audience,Â â€œPause for a moment and pretend this isnâ€™t the 8:00 p.m. show onÂ Fox News,” according toÂ The Daily Caller.
â€œLetâ€™s pretend itâ€™s somewhere else on the dial If that were true, by definition, weâ€™d have to draw hard and fast conclusions from this tragedy, using the limited fact set available,â€ he continued.
â€œWe donâ€™t really know much, but sweeping dumb generalizations are what the media do. So we would do that. Of course, weâ€™d need to use a very specific script to make those generalizations,” he continued.
Carlson said based on past shootings the media would jump to several conclusions about the shooter — Nasim Aghdama, a far-Left PETA-supporting vegan and feminist — as well as the gun, while covering the incident 24/7.
He said the media would be calling for bans of “assault pistols” (Aghdam used a Smith & Wesson 9 mm pistol), would label PETA a terrorist organization with blood on its hands as being responsible for the incident (she was a PETA supporter), and would call for townhall-style meetings so people could yell at PETA representatives, all of which happened after the Parkland, Fla., school shooting in February.
â€œBut wait. Media outlets arenâ€™t reaching any of these conclusions,â€ Carlson noted further.
â€œWhy not? Because thereâ€™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. Thatâ€™s how corrupt they are,” he said.
As we reported, Aghdam appears to be a far-Left activist according to her social media posts and website.
NBC Bay Area noted further:
In 2009, she protested the militaryâ€™s use of pigs in training exercises. A news report by The San Diego Union-Tribune shows a photo of Aghdam holding a plastic sword and spattered in blood as part of the demonstration by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
In 2014, she posted a video on YouTube of [her] car, stating that it was vandalized by â€œanti-vegansâ€ because a bumper sticker said, â€œmeat is murder.â€
â€œTheyâ€™re also incredibly stupid, especially on the subject of firearms,â€ Tucker said of the legacy media, then singling out â€œMSNBCâ€™s resident genius Nicolle Wallace,â€ who was having a little auditory trouble during her Tuesday coverage of the San Bruno shooting, misidentifying the opening of a soda can as a gunshot.
â€œNo, Nicolle, not gunshots. But be sure to listen carefully as she lectures you about the Second Amendment. She knows a lot about it.â€
