Tucker Carlson slammed Democrats and presidential nominee Joe Biden for selectively ignoring violence in U.S. cities.
The Fox News host ripped apart the liberal media as well in his monologue on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” exposing the real message of the Biden campaign as Democrats try to blame President Trump for the rioting and violence in cities run by their own. Carlson highlighted recent incidents as examples, including a disturbing video that showed a black man running up behind a white man in broad daylight and knocking him out with a brick to the back of the head.

“It gets no coverage whatsoever. The media pretend it is not happening,” Carlson said Monday as he played video clips highlighting incidents, usually related to Black Lives Matter, being intentionally ignored.
“But it is happening and it’s lunacy. There is a massive cost for all of us for allowing it to go unchallenged. And it is unchallenged,” he said.
“BLM can say and do whatever it wants. Democrats will never criticize BLM because Democrats never criticize their own voters,” Carlson added. “Democrats won’t say anything if it’s coming from someone who might vote for them. So we shouldn’t be surprised when their voters take the cue and become more radical and more violent.”
He went on to share the now-viral video from Baltimore, Maryland which showed a seemingly unprovoked attack. The video showed the attacker approach the victim from behind and hitting him in the back of the head with what was reportedly a brick. The victim fell forward onto the sidewalk, face first and the person recording the video could be heard reacting in laughter and surprise.
The video was posted on Instagram, but since-taken down, and included the hashtag “White lives don’t matter.”
“Joe Biden didn’t mention that,” Carlson said, referring to Biden’s speech in Pittsburgh Monday in which he condemned violent protests, but blamed Trump because he was “stroking” the unrest and division.
“There’s no sign he disagrees, The media of course will never cover this. They are devoted to full time covering for the rioters,” Carlson added.
The attack in Baltimore on Sunday was being investigated by police who responded to a report of an aggravated assault by a witness who did not want to give his identification.
According to WJZ:
Upon following up with the person who called, the citizen who reported it refused to give their name or address but said he was in his home around 6:30 p.m. on West Hamburg Street when he heard a loud argument between two men.
One of the men began to walk away when the other picked up two bricks, approached the other man and struck him in the back of the head. The man then ran away, leaving the victim on the ground.
Police did not find the victim but did see a pool of blood on the pavement.
“It happened so fast,” another witness who did not want to be identified told WJZ. “When I saw him running I thought he was running to talk to the guy.”

Baltimore City Councilman Eric Costello posted the video on social media and condemned the attack.
“It should go without saying that the complete depravity to human life illustrated in this video is absolutely disgusting and should be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” Costello wrote.
The Baltimore Police Department is still investigating and asked that anyone with any information or video footage contact them.
