BREAKING: Fox News Host Drug Bombshell - Viewers Stunned...

July 7, 2022

Fox News host Tucker Carlson reacted to the Highland Park, Illinois shooting by criticizing Democrats and the media for their anticipated reactions.

Carlson also said there was a reluctance from the media and Democrats to consider a possible connection between prescription drugs and shootings like Highland Park.

Partial transcript from Carlson's monologue here:

They’re numbed by the endless psychotropic drugs that are handed out in every school in the country by crackpots posing as counselors and of course, they’re angry. They know that their lives will not be better than their parents. They’ll be worse. That’s all but guaranteed. They know that. They’re not that stupid.

And yet, the authorities in their lives, mostly women, never stops 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 of them have been prescribed psychotropic drugs by their doctors, SSRI’s or antidepressants and that would include quite a few mass shooters and keep in mind, again, these drugs are meant to prevent crazy behavior and yet there seems to be a connection.

Eric Harris, the Columbine killer was on Zoloft and Luvox. A year earlier, a 15-year-old called Kip Kinkel shot his parents and dozens of classmates. He was on Prozac. In 2005, a 16-year-old called Jeff Weise killed his grandfather and 10 kids in Minnesota. He was on Prozac, too. So was 27- year-old, Steven Kazmierczak who murdered six people at Northern Illinois University.

In 2012, you may recall when 25-year-old James Holmes walked into a movie theater and shot 82 people. He was on Zoloft.

The list goes on and on and on and on. It includes the shooter at the Washington Navy Yard in 2013. That would be 34-year-old, Aaron Alexis. It also includes Dylan Roof. He’s the 21-year-old who shot up the church in Charleston. Now, he was apparently a racist, and we’ve heard a lot about that. Fine, but we’ve heard next to nothing about the fact that he was taking SSRI’s, he and many, many others. You’re not supposed to notice, but some have.

"The Journal of Political Psychology" once assembled a list of dozens more mass killings, all committed by young people, young men on prescription drugs. So, is there a connection? Well, we don’t know definitively. We do know there are a whole lot more of these drugs being taken by kids than ever before and by the entire population. Who’s not taking some prescription medication at this point?

Between 1991 and 2018, total SSRI prescriptions in the United States rose by more than 3,000 percent — 3,000 percent.
