Cori Bush Blames Tucker Carlson for Buffalo Shooters Actions


    In Bush's speech, she briefly spoke about her experience of listening to relatives and survivors of victims of her experience of the Uvalde massacre at a school in Texas.

    “My congressional colleagues and I heard these heart wrenching testimonies from survivors of gun violence and the grieving families of victims,” Bush addressed the crowd. “We heard from Uvalde fourth grader, Miah Cerrillo, who covered herself in her classmate's blood and pretended to be dead to survive.”

    “We heard from the grieving parents of Lexi Rubio, an angel now, you all, at just 10 years old,” Bush said.

    Bush later brought to light her thoughts on the Buffalo massacre at a grocery store in which the shooter killed ten people and wounded three others.

    “I'm joining you a few weeks after an 18-year-old white supremacist, who was indoctrinated by Tucker Carlson and Fox News, after he targeted a black community in Buffalo and committed a massacre,” Bush declared.

    Bush isn't the only Democrat politician who has tried to tie Carlson to his role in the Buffalo shooter. Following the shooting in Buffalo in the last month, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) issued a fundraising email that blamed Carlson for making use of “racism to his advantage.”

    “The white supremacist Buffalo mass shooter borrowed language directly from Tucker Carlson and this is not a coincidence,” Swalwell wrote. “We've known for a while now that Tucker uses racism to his advantage, stirring up fear and outrage to attract people to his white supremacist propaganda show.”

    In addition, MSNBC anchor Joy Reid said Carlson has injected “racist conspiracy theory” into the blood of Republican voters in the wake of the incident.

    “The truth is that Tucker isn't a deep thinker. Tucker is clearly channeling horrible content that viewers could easily access online, and giving this to the Republican supporters or Republican politicians as information and that feedback loop is terrifyingly wide,” Reid said.

    “That criminally savage low-life from Buffalo would not even need for him to hear Tucker. He would not have to look at him to understand the information if they're taking their cues off the exact same material.”
