Tucker Carlson Defends Kenosha Vigilante: He Did What ‘No One Else Would’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson rallied to the defense of charged murderer Kyle Rittenhouse for allegedly killing two protesters in Kenosha, asking his viewers Wednesday night how they could be shocked that the 17-year-old “decided to maintain order when no one else would.”

“Kenosha has devolved into anarchy, the authorities in charge of the city abandoned it,” the far-right host fumed. “People in charge, from the governor of Wisconsin on down, refused to enforce the law. They stood back and watched Kenosha burn.”

“So are we really surprised this looting and arson accelerated to murder,” he continued. “How shocked are we that 17-year-olds with rifles decided they had to maintain order when no one else would? Everyone can see what was happening in Kenosha. It was getting crazier by the hour.”
