As Twitter Takes to Blaming Tucker Carlson for Shooting, Manifesto Confirms Suspect's No Fan of Fox News

On Saturday afternoon, 18-year old Payton Gendron allegedly shot several people, killing 10 at a Tops Friendly Market located in a predominantly Black neighborhood in Buffalo, New York. He has been arrested and arraigned on 10 first-degree murder charges. 


Trends over Twitter to do with Gendron's motives included "Great Replacement" and "Tucker Carlson," as some took to blaming the Fox News host for the shooting. It's worth emphasizing, though, that the suspect's own manifesto not only included no mentions of Carlson, but attacked 21st Century Fox for hiring Jewish people.

The suspect expressed many anti-Semitic views, from what screenshots and excerpts are available. 


Joe Lockhart, who is actually a communications person, said that there was "blood on the hands" of Carlson, and that "Carlson will be [damned] at judgment day." He subsequently tweeted glee over the remarks he was getting as people called him out.

A tweet from Georgetown Professor Don Moynihan did a particularly poor job trying to portray Carlson as a white supremacist by comparing a segment of his to the manifesto. 

Then there's more of the usual suspects, such as The Lincoln Project's co-founder Rick Wilson and Brooklyn Dad Defiant. 


Many pushed back, though, with something called facts. 


PolitiBunny, who is with our friends over at Twitchy, also got emotional on Twitter as well, as she pushed back against these takes.
