Megyn Kelly was disgusted by how quickly Democrats moved to politicize the horrific shooting that took place at a supermarket in Buffalo New York.
During Monday’s episode of The Megyn Kelly Show, the host described the timeline of events and expressed her sympathy for the victims and their families and friends – and she noted that her policy, like the policy adopted by The Daily Wire, was to avoid naming the suspects in mass shootings whenever possible in order to deny them the notoriety they sought.
“We will not be naming the shooter on this program, consistent with our policy of not naming mass shooters, who in part are out for infamy and we decline to help. He’s pleaded not guilty, but he also left behind a trove of information, including a 180-page manifesto filled with racist and antisemitic commentary,” she said. “The shooter was white. Detailing how and why he picked his target.”
“Some in the media had been quick to point fingers and even place blame on our friend and very popular Fox News host, Tucker Carlson. It’s outrageous. It’s wrong, both factually and morally,” Kelly said.
“Why do we have to go to that place immediately on these stories. Why can’t we spend two f***ing minutes mourning the people who are dead and trying to understand that we have insane people in this country? We have lunatics. It’s a huge country!” she continued.
“We’re not going to be able to get rid of them all. It infuriates me. People have to inject their politics into everything. And this guy had a racist manifesto. There’s no question that doesn’t make it Tucker Carlson’s fault. Just stop it. Just stop it!” Kelly concluded.
Kelly continued to slam liberals who tried to sell the lie that the shooter was a run-og-the-mill conservative. When, in fact, Kelly noted that the shooter hated Fox News and conservativism.
He is just and angry racist, no matter what the media tries to say but it’s disgusting how they try to politize the death of 10 innocent people.
New York’s Attorney General Letitia James said her office would focus on extremist material online. “This event was committed by a sick, demented individual who was fuelled [by a] daily diet of hate,” she said.
The shooting has stunned the local community. One of those attending a vigil on Sunday told Reuters: “It just hurts, why somebody would do that.” Ten died and three others were injured.
