Outrageous comments, even for Fox News, justifying the murder of two protesters at a rally by an angry Republican carrying an assault weapon. It seems unlikely the network will act on it, in recent years Fox News has become the anchor for white supremacists and become increasingly more angry.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Wednesday suggested it was not surprising that a teenager arrested in connection to a shooting allegedly took up arms and tried to "maintain order" during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
"How shocked are we that 17-year-olds with rifles decided they had to maintain order when no one else would?" Carlson asked on his prime time television program.
On Wednesday, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse was taken into custody just outside Wisconsin, in Antioch, Illinois, and charged with first-degree intentional homicide. The arrest came after two people were killed overnight during the Tuesday night protest prompted by the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
