Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealed that the country is in the grips of a violent crime wave and the Democrats in power are largely to blame.
Carlson began his Thursday show by calling out Democrats and other officials in power for blaming the coronavirus pandemic for the rising crime wave.
Carlson said, “Everyone, particularly people in power seemed happy to blame COVID, the pandemic did it. The coronavirus may be global, but rising crime rates are not global. Police in Canada, for example, reported that crime fell by 18 percent between March and October of last year. In the U.K., crime saw its biggest annual decrease in a decade. In Sweden and Russia, crime dropped, too. Even in Mexico, which is in the middle of a drug war. There were fewer homicides in 2020 than there were in 2019.”
The facts don’t back up the narrative that the Democrats have fed the American people. The global coronavirus has not caused a global crime wave; this is a problem that is primarily affecting Americans.
Carlson continued saying, “So you have to ask yourself — because your life may depend on it — why is this country different from say, Sweden or Russia or Mexico? And you know the answer. It’s not COVID. It’s that in our country, stupid, malicious people took full control, the Democratic Party took full control of the country, and their policies resulted in a huge number of killings.”
Thanks to the Democrat Party’s social engineering, police nationwide have been gutted, and Americans are paying the price. This wave of crime that we are experiencing is yet more proof that Democrats are not fit to govern.
