The day after yet another horrific mass shooting, Fox News primetime hosts were back to blaming everything but guns.
Tucker Carlson, for example, had a rather novel explanation for the latest mass shooting: Feminism, cannabis, and medication to treat depression.
Asserting that young American men “inhabit” a life filled with “social media, porn, and video games,” and “government-endorsed weed,” Carlson alleged that “crackpots posing as ‘counselors'” are forcing American children to take “psychotropic drugs.”
“The authorities in their lives, mostly women, never stop lecturing them about their so-called privilege. ‘You’re male, you’re privileged.’ Imagine that, try to imagine an unhealthier, unhappier life than that. So a lot of young men in America are going nuts. Are you surprised? And by the way, a shockingly large number have been prescribed psychotropic drugs by their doctors, SSRIS, or antidepressants.”

Meanwhile, Tucker’s colleague Laura Ingraham, who has been trying for weeks to connect America’s mass murder problem to cannabis, once again blamed it all on the legalization of marijuana — something the overwhelming majority of American’s support — and of course repeated her “pot psychosis” theory. There is however no known link between cannabis and mass shootings.
