Fox News host Tucker Carlson tore into the Democrat Party for running on pro-crime platforms across the country in the lead-up to the 2022 midterm elections.
“This is crime with a purpose,” Carlson said of the nation’s rising inner-city crime rate. “They don’t want to have this conversation, the people who did this, and that’s why they attack you personally and morally if you bring it up. In Philadelphia, a lot of these crimes can be traced to one man, Soros-backed D.A. Larry Krasner. He’s decided not to charge many robbers with crimes. Arrests and charges for retail theft in Philadelphia have dropped by about 70% over the past four years. In that same period, reports of robberies jumped more than 20%. You see how this works?”
“If you stop charging people with certain crimes, they commit more of them,” Carlson continued. “That seems like an obvious observation and again, it’s more evidence this is not an accident. Larry Krasner is not an idiot. None of these people are stupid. They’re doing this on purpose. They’re trying to destroy and why are they doing that? Well, we can’t guess as to the motive, but they’re definitely doing it.”
Carlson noted, “Voters are getting very tired of this, so tired of it that even some Democrats have started to figure out actually maybe voters don’t want to be shot, raped or carjacked and then attacked morally if they don’t like it.”
“Kathy Hochul, who is in part responsible for the rising crime in New York, is now running last ditch ads promising to fight crime,” Carlson said. “Oh, really, Kathy Hochul, but it’s probably too late for her. She’s losing to a Republican in New York. Pennsylvania is almost as Democratic as New York is, but the lieutenant governor now running for Senate there, John Fetterman, is also losing for the same reasons, we guess. His challenger is Dr. Mehmet Oz.
