Tucker goes there: ‘The whole George Floyd story was a lie’

Tucker Carlson took a sledgehammer to one of the left’s greatest false idols by suggesting that George Floyd was not murdered by police in a 2020 incident that sparked violent race riots across the nation.

On Friday, the former Fox News host released the latest episode of “Tucker on X” bringing attention to a court case that challenges the belief that the career criminal and drug addict perished as a result of being restrained by former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin, who was convicted and sentenced to decades in prison for Floyd’s death.

“Now that we know that in fact, it wasn’t a pandemic of the unvaccinated, now that we know that Ukraine is not actually winning the war against Russia, it could be time to revisit some of the other slogans we’ve been assured are true and ordered to repeat. Are they in fact true?” Carlson began.

“Did, for example, a racist white cop actually murder a man called George Floyd, a civil rights leader, in Minneapolis on Memorial Day of 2020? Now we’ve been told that that happened, told it relentlessly for more than three years,” he said. “So, at this point, we’ve been told it so much that pretty much everybody seems to believe it.”

“And because everyone does kind of believe it, a small group of people has been allowed to make massive changes to American society,” he said. “They include but are not limited to decriminalizing stealing, defunding the police, adding a new federal holiday to the calendar called Juneteenth. The ceasing of hiring all white men in Corporate America, and of course, significantly, they also sent a cop called Derek Chauvin to prison for more than 40 years.”

“He would be the racist white devil who murdered George Floyd,” Carlson continued. “But the question is, did he actually murder George Floyd? And the answer is, well, no, he didn’t murder George Floyd, we’re not guessing about that; we know it conclusively thanks to a new court case now underway in Hennepin County, Minnesota.”

Carlson then revealed that in a deposition in the case unrelated to Floyd or Chauvin, a prosecutor recalled a conversation that she had with the county medical examiner Andrew Baker that in a sane world, would collapse the entire narrative that Floyd, a sanctified martyr figure, died as a result of Chauvin’s knee on his neck, but that he instead succumbed to a lethal dose of fentanyl that was in his system on his final day.

“I called Dr. Baker early that morning to tell him about the case and to ask him if he would perform the autopsy on Mr. Floyd. He called me later in the day on that Tuesday and he told me that there were no medical findings that showed any injury to the vital structures of Mr. Floyd’s neck. There were no medical indications of asphyxia or strangulation,” Hennepin County prosecutor Amy Sweasy swore under oath.

“In other words, George Floyd, according to the official autopsy, was not murdered. He died instead of what we used to call natural causes, which, in his case, would include decades of drug use, as well as the fatal concentration of fentanyl that was in his system on his final day,” Carlson stated.

“So this was not a killing. It was yet another narcotics O.D. in a country that records more than 100,000 of them every year. The medical examiner clearly understood that, in fact, articulated it,” he said, referring to Sweasy’s sworn deposition.

Floyd’s unfortunate death and the exploitation of it by “woke” cultural revolutionaries and Democratic Party politicians spawned the current era of racial madness in America in which anti-white, anti-cop sentiment has been wielded to radically transform society and to keep the ruthlessly cynical, authoritarian party in power, and its leader marked what would have been Floyd’s 50th birthday last week.

“George Floyd’s memory reminds us that there is more work to do to redeem the soul of America. Let us recommit to changing hearts and minds while enacting policies and laws that ensure our nation lives up to its founding idea: that we’re all created equal and deserve to be treated equally throughout our lives,” President Joe Biden said in a statement.
