Fox News host Tucker Carlson has never been afraid to expose liberal talking policies and explain why they would be bad for America.
But he recently pointed out one fact about gun control and mass shootings that will infuriate the Democratic Party.
In an op-ed for The Daily Caller, Carlson writes that the Second Amendment isn’t the problem, but rather mental health issues and suicide are.
Carlson noted that suicide rates for young Americans are higher than they have ever been, including drug-related deaths.
This increase, Carlson posits, has been fueled by Left-wing policies that hurt economic opportunity and are destroying family and religious institutions.
Tucker said this has left many young Americans with no hope and feeling as if they have nowhere to go but self-harm.
He argues that the media overlooks this because it doesn't fit into their narrative.
All Democrats care about is gun control, he said, not the actual root of the problem.
Suicide rates for young Americans are the highest ever measured. So are drug-related deaths. Fifteen percent of millennials still live with their parents. Fifty years ago, more than 80% of American adults ages 25 to 34 were already married and living with a spouse. Today, less than half of adults in that age range are married. A huge portion of American young people aren’t in any kind of relationship at all. It’s no wonder millions of young people feel helpless, miserable and alone. They lack friends or parents or religious organizations to give their lives purpose and moral coherence. They live in a suffocating culture they feel no control over: Local identity and local institutions are the weakest they’ve ever been in this country.
Most people think our democracy is fake. The policies they live under, the jobs they hold and even their personal opinions are controlled by tech monopolists, media scolds and Washington bureaucrats. America is supposed to be a free country, but millions of young people look around and feel like they’re trapped in a stagnant dystopia. In such an environment, a few people will lash out in violence. Millions of others will simply fade away, from suicide or overdose or diabetes. This is the real crisis, the one that produced those horrifying scenes on TV over the weekend. Washington is happy to pretend it isn’t happening. But it is. You can’t ignore it forever.
Carlson definitely hit the nail on the head and revealed something that most never hear Democrats talk about.
Democrats and their media allies only seem to talk about gun control and ignore all these points.
Liberals would obviously much rather say “guns are bad” than actually address to the core of the problem.
