If Tucker Carlson brags about beating up a gay man and/or liked junk food in high school, shouldn’t he clear that up among other strange tropes like the George Floyd verdict attacking Western Civilization.

Tucker Carlson’s rants that ‘civilization will end’ because of the Chauvin verdict.

After a jury convicted former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin of murder and manslaughter on Tuesday in the death of George Floyd, Fox New host Tucker Carlson suggested they weren’t swayed by the testimony of more than three dozen witnesses or visceral video of Floyd pleading, “I can’t breathe.”

Instead, Carlson argued, the jurors were intimidated into the guilty verdict by the months of racial justice protests that followed Floyd’s death.

“The jurors in the Derek Chauvin trial came to a unanimous and unequivocal verdict this afternoon: ‘Please don’t hurt us,’” Carlson said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Carlson added, “Everyone understood perfectly well the consequences of an acquittal in this case. After nearly a year of burning and looting and murder by BLM, that was never in doubt.”

Fox News host Tucker Carlson behaved strangely on the air Tuesday night.

Near the end of his show about the conviction of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd, Carlson laughed maniacally, then abruptly ended an interview with a guest who dared to criticize police use of excessive force.

Carlson, who spent months spreading lies about Floyd’s death and railing against the Black Lives Matter movement it reignited, invited former New York corrections official Ed Gavin on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to speak after the verdict.

“I want the police to protect people,” Gavin said. “But specifically what we’re dealing with here, is a person in custody, he was handcuffed and subdued. At that point, we have to take a different tact.”
