Tucker Carlson tonight said that the impeachment managers were lying, lying and lying, and it is because they want to change American society. He used Black Lives Matter as an example of this "change". 

Did BLM write the dozens of Trump tweets that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt his guilt in inciting the rioters?  

I dont think so.

I think you missed it. Carlson was comparing the way BLM used the death of George Floyd, (whom Carlson said Floyd probably died of a drug overdose) to get radical change (to policing) the same way the riot on Jan 6th is being used by the party now in power to enact changes it wants (I assume like cancelling all those who voted for Donald Trump).

It was fairly straight forward. Some lefty on twitter didn't like it and tried to muddy the waters.



Note: what was the cause of death for George Floyd?

"New court documents filed in the case of four former Minneapolis police officers being prosecuted for the death of George Floyd while in custody indicated the coroner found "no physical evidence . . . of asphyxiation" and a "fatal level" of the synthetic opioid fentanyl in the dead man's system.

The revelations were in memos dated May 26 and June 1 – one day and a week after Floyd died – by the Hennepin County Attorney's Office. They were submitted to the court Tuesday, a day after one of the officers, Tou Thao, requested the release of the full autopsy report, Fox's Minneapolis network affiliate   KMSP reported .

"The autopsy revealed no physical evidence suggesting that Mr. Floyd died of asphyxiation," Hennepin County Medical Examiner Dr. Andrew Baker told the prosecutor's office, according to the May 26 memo. The autopsy was incomplete, it said, pending a toxicology report. 

The June 1 memo said Baker indicated Floyd's level of fentanyl was "pretty high" and at a potentially "fatal level."

Did you hear about all the republicans who supported and incited the insurrection for the former occupant of the White House and his mob, couldn't be bothered with paying attention at his impeachment proceedings?

Hawley had his feet up on a chair on the second level reviewing papers.  Rand Paul was doodling.    The other traitors were doing anything but paying attention to the proceedings, especially the damning video of his mob.

What did the cops do when Floyd audibly gasped out that he couldn't breathe ?  Did they let him breathe? 

If the coroner says the cops didnt murder Floyd then perhaps they didnt murder him. But they killed him. He didnt rise from that street a living man did he?  Or do you think it is just a coincidence that his drug overdose killed him at the exact time a policeman was kneeling on his neck for 9 minutes?

Yep..... Make them wear it forevermore..... They couldn't care less about the people that died so they could live.  Democracy be damned.

This. Carlson did not - as the title here claims - blame the impeachment trial on BLM.

Correct. It is a big lie.

That does appear to be the case. However, it is no excuse for the behavior of the police in that incident. Their behavior was wrong regardless of whether or not George Floyd died.

There is no justification for having a restrained man continue to lay on the ground. There is no justification for the knee in the neck of a restrained man, even if - as the autopsy indicates - there wasn't much pressure being applied. There is no justification for the fact that a man is saying he can't breathe and no medical attention was sought.

All of those factors cry out for reform, even if George Floyd wasn't physically affected by any of it and he were alive today.

Then you should maybe expand your knowledge of the investigation. I imagine you might think that way if everything you know about it came from CNN or something similar.

As evidence, it cites comments from Andrew Baker, the chief medical examiner in Hennepin County, who performed an autopsy on Floyd. But Baker didn’t say that Floyd died of a drug overdose.

The medical examiner’s office ruled that the manner of Floyd’s death was homicide. 

The cause of death, according to the medical examiner, was "cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression." The report goes on to say that Floyd "experienced a cardiopulmonary arrest while being restrained" by law enforcement officers.

What that means: Floyd’s heart stopped as Chauvin restrained him.

Floyd’s heart stopped as Chauvin restrained him.

But not because he was restrained. I hope you read above and see that my point was that it doesn't matter to the issue of reform.

Yeah, it's the spin version of an underlying condition.

(As some conservatives may know, most Black Americans have underlying conditions (brought on by the states of their lives) that can be looked up and exploited at the right moment. Just look for them.)

Oh my, Sister! Gurl, I got through the whoooollee sorry and then I wanted to run down a 'rabbit hole' to get away from Tucker! This dude is unapologetically working for the big bucks. Mr. "Save The Narrative!" T. Carlson 'jobbin' to be lead in the Fox Cable News Franchise (when the slot opens up under Sean Hannity)!

My understanding is that Fox's ratings are down so it's time to spew more shit, scrape the bottom of the barrel.

That's pretty much it. They lost viewers to Newsmax and OAN so Fox News fired a bunch at the actual news department and doubled down on stupid.

Tucker Carlson is "jobbin' for attention. Big promotions coming for the new 'it" guy or gal who has the heat that puts asses in the set top seat! Of course, he doesn't believe what he spouts- somebody help him if he does!

If you've got to lie about the contents of a clip to make it newsworthy, it's probably not newsworthy to begin with.
