He dealt them a major blow…
During his show, Tucker Carlson chastised CNN for potentially being more interested in the “racial aspects” of Derek Chauvin’s trial.
The trial may be boring, but it’s important.
It’s not about George Floyd, obviously, it never was. No one on CNN cared about George Floyd while he was alive. He was unemployed and on drugs, like a lot of people in this country. They paid him no attention.
And no one on CNN actually cares about George Floyd now. What they care about is you and your role in the systemic racism that supposedly killed George Floyd.
If the Floyd trial ends in acquittal, there could be riots. We accept that as a fact of life in this country. No civilized country should accept that, but suddenly we do.
And if there are riots, innocent people may die, as they did in large numbers this summer. CNN will downplay those deaths or justify them as they did this summer as they have so many times before when those deaths are politically convenient.
The point isn’t to save people from dying. The point is to punish you and to change America. So from that perspective, it’s worth it. And that’s why they are replaying that video of George Floyd dying in the sidewalk, to remind you of all of that, of your culpability in his death.
And that’s why even as they rub the country’s face in the death of George Floyd, there were other tragic deaths, some on video they ignore completely.
