The decade's most triggering comedy
Fox News host Tucker Carlson unloaded on the far-left transgender movement during a monologue this week after a transgender shooter murdered six people, including three children, at a Christian school in Nashville.
Carlson noted at the top that he had been warning prior to the shooting that the entire movement was “militant” and becoming “dangerous.” But after Monday’s massacre, Carlson noted, the “insidious” media coverage compounded the sickening tragedy. He cited ABC News reporter Terry Moran, who linked the shooting to new laws in Tennessee banning chemical and surgical sex change procedures for minors.
“The State of Tennessee bans the sexual mutilation of children, children get shot to death in a school,” Carlson said. “It’s cause and effect. That’s what ABC News is telling you. That’s not far from justifying mass murder, but others took the next step.”
Carlson then noted that a group called the Trans Resistance Network stated that the shooter’s death was a complex tragedy that resulted from “anti-trans bias.” Fae Johnstone, a biological male who Hershey’s spotlighted last month as it rolled out chocolate bars to honor women, posted messages after the shooting complaining about “trans misogyny.”
Carlson said claims that trans people are in danger or under attack are not borne out by crime statistics.
“It’s a provable lie, and in fact, the opposite is true,” Carlson said. “We seem to be watching the rise of trans terrorism.”
The real conflict, the Fox News host said, is between Christians, whose faith he said precludes the idea that people can change their biology, and the increasingly radical transgender movement.
“The trans movement is the mirror image of Christianity, and therefore its natural enemy,” he continued. “In Christianity, the price of admission is admitting that you’re not God. Christians openly concede that they have no real power over anything, and for that matter, very little personal virtue. They will tell you to your face that they are sinful and helpless and basically absurd. They’re not embarrassed about any of this. They brag about it. ‘That saved a wretch like me,’ goes the most famous Christian hymn ever written in English.”
But trans ideology claims power over nature itself, according to Carlson. And that, he said, is something Christians can never accept.
“That unwillingness to agree, that failure to acknowledge a trans person’s dominion over nature, incites and enrages some in the trans community. People who believe they are God can’t stand to be reminded that they’re not,” Carlson said. “So, Christianity and transgender orthodoxy are wholly incompatible theologies. They can never be reconciled. They are on a collision course with each other.”
