Tucker Goes on Conspiracy-Laden Rant About Drugs, Shootings, and Men

The American liberal left has been conditioning the people of this great nation for decades, pushing a wild brand of divisiveness on the population at large for their own political gains.

The theory is quite simple:  The left’s constant need for “progressions” doesn’t jibe well with the efficiency and work ethic of Americans as a whole.  We have always been ahead of the curve, to so speak, when it comes to ingenuity, innovation, and grit.  Quite frankly, outside of a few select industries, American products are wholly dominating the world stage.

For instance, even in the world of consumer electronics, which is largely credited as being far more advanced in nations such as Japan and South Korea, it took Americans to bring the iPhone to reality.

Also, lest we forget that it was the United States Department of Defense that truly created the first real internet, (not Al Gore), we really cannot trace any inkling of the modern digital world to any corner of the globe not currently a part of the grand nation of America.

Trending: Fuel for Thought

This longstanding tradition of American invention has also forced the U.S. into the role of perfector, often creating the ultimate version of a product, good, or service.  Gunpowder may have been invented in the Far East, but there is little doubt as to who has employed this discovery in the most astounding way over the course of the last few hundred years.

In many ways, Americans have always been the ultimate refiners, taking a system or a necessity and working it into the most efficient and effective form possible.  It’s what we do as born innovators in a nation that idolizes hard work and smart work.

But when the left constantly pushes us past the point of best practice, and into the realm of complication, it drags America down and it befuddles the Americans who have already solved these problems.

Much of this nonsensical “progression for the sake of progression” has occurred simply for the sake of ease, or, in the case of meddling liberals, has arrived in the form of unnecessary regulations.  Remember, progressive will never think something is good enough, no matter how many eons of time have passed and how many throughput models have been examined.  It simply must change, or else these left-leaning lurches will be out of a job.

A great deal of this innovation and indomitability has, factually, come from the male end of the American populace.  This is in no way meant to disparage our better halves or the contribution of the United States’ most incredible women, but, if there are 100 great American inventions, it would be fair to say that men have contributed around 50% of them.

Remember, this is a society that until rather recently was a little off when it came to women’s rights.  There is no denying that men a century ago were in a much different societal place than their female counterparts, allowing for a bit more time to dabble, tinker, and achieve.

Throughout history, the pressure to succeed would build exponentially.  As a man in America, you had some rather large shoes to fill, looking at the greats who came before you.  Your inventions and creations were to be built on top of these already spiraling pillars, and on the strength of this sheer determination and mettle we would remain atop our lofty perch on the world’s stage.

So what happened?  Why are men in America suddenly and strangely transforming into another creature altogether, as some have suggested?

This all begins with the “men’s rights movement” – a bizarre and confusing world epitomized by Reddit’s “Red Pill” community.

From the vitriolic “introduction” on their own page:

“…men are realizing that the sexual marketplace has shifted away from what we’ve been taught. Men who grew up over thirty years ago are discovering the world has changed. Men who are still growing up- from the 80s, 90s, and even the last decade, they’re starting to realize that what their parents taught them, what television and chick flicks taught them, what church and sunday school taught them… it’s all wrong.
“Our culture has become a feminist culture. A president cannot be elected today without succumbing to the feminist narrative and paying them tribute. How many times has Obama given credit for his manhood to his wife? How many times has the debate hinged on women’s pay gap – which is a myth that gets lip service because if you don’t you’re a misogynist!
“I’m not here to parade the concepts of Men’s Rights- nor am I here to discuss self-improvement tips that /r/seduction now purports are to make you a better man, not get laid more often.
“I am here to say, for better or for worse, the frame around public discourse is a feminist frame, and we’ve lost our identity because of it.”
Many, myself included, are not inclined to agree with the harsh tone and tenets of the Red Pill faithful, and would rather think of this turn toward dominating American femininity as a correction, much like the stock market sees on an hourly basis.  For far too long, we as Americans were ignoring the inherent greatness of our nation’s women, and, in order to quickly recover from this error we have thumbed the scales rather hard.  There is little doubt in this American man’s mind that a balance is coming.
But that certainly hasn’t stopped a number of conspiracy theorists from jumping on the Red Pill bandwagon in order to push their own ideas on government-sponsored feminization of the nation’s estrogen-impaired.  Their theories range from the mundane social cues of television to the wholesale dosing of the American populace with high levels of estrogen-inducing chemicals – a staple of the Alex Jones rhetoric.
Straight from Infowars:
“Exposure to phthalates, which are found in many plastics, is ‘feminizing’ boys by blocking normal male testosterone and causing genital abnormalities, according to scientists. ‘Boys exposed to high levels of these in the womb were less likely than other boys to play with cars, trains and guns or engage in “rougher” games like play fighting,’ according to a BBC News report. According to Elizabeth Salter-Green, director of the chemicals campaign group CHEM Trust, phthalates are a true ‘gender-bender’ because they lead to a reduction in ‘male behavior’.”
Certainly, we’re now on the path to crazy-town…or are we?
Now, even Tucker Carlson is noticing that something is changing for American men, and is dedicating Wednesdays in the month of March to the issue.  Check out his first diatribe on the subject below:

This brings us to the $64,000 question:  Why are men failing so miserably in American society today?

In the Tucker tape, Carlson explains a number of ways in which U.S. males are falling behind women in today’s culture, and they all sound fairly serious:  Drug addiction, suicide rates, mass shootings, incarcerated populations, education, etc.  Something surely seems to be going on, but what is it?

Tucker then touches on the obvious:  Men are far more heavily medicated as children, using psychoactive chemicals whose long term effects have not been fully studied, due to their short time in existence.  This is where it gets scary.

“More men are taking antidepressants than ever before, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“After combing through the numbers from 2011 to 2014—the most recent data available—the CDC found nearly 1 in 10 men reported taking antidepressant medication in the past month. That’s a 69 percent increase from 1999 to 2002, when only 5 percent of men reported taking antidepressants.”

Even more alarming, (as if that weren’t enough reason to worry), is the fact that a great many of these antidepressants are classified as SSRI’s, or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors – a class of drugs that have some alarming side effects, and have been linked to nearly every mass shooting in modern American history:

“Before the late nineteen eighties, mass shootings and acts of senseless violence were relatively unheard of.  Prozac, the most well known SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) antidepressant, was not yet on the market.  When Prozac did arrive, it was marketed as a panacea for depression which resulted in huge profits for its manufacturer Eli Lilly. Of course other drug companies had to create their own cash cow and followed suit by marketing their own SSRI antidepressants.

“Subsequently, mass shootings and other violent incidents started to be reported.  More often than not, the common denominator was that the shooters were on an antidepressant, or withdrawing from one.  This is not about an isolated incident or two but numerous shootings.  The question is, during the past twenty years is the use of antidepressants here a coincidence or a causation?

“There have been too many mass shootings for it just to be a coincidence.  Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed twelve students and a teacher at Columbine High School.   Eric was on Luvox, an antidepressant.  The Virginia Tech shooter killed thirty-two people and he was on an antidepressant.  While withdrawing from Prozac, Kip Kinkel murdered his mother and stepmother.  He then shot twenty-two classmates and killed two.  Jason Hoffman wounded five at his high school while he was on Effexor, also an antidepressant.  James Holmes opened fire in a Colorado movie theater this past summer and killed twelve people and wounded fifty-eight.  He was under the care of a psychiatrist but no information has been released as to what drug he must have been on. “

So, given this wild connection and seemingly undeniable concern, where is the outrage?  Who has been leading the charge on this obvious travesty?

That would be Alex Jones – the one “journalist”-like personality that the mainstream media can quickly and easily brush off in order to ignore the reality of the situation.

Now, with Tucker Carlson touching on the subject, is there any hope for a legitimate look into this anti-male phenomenon?  Unlikely.  But, we may be provided with evidence of a Big Pharma campaign to silence Carlson, should his scheduled Wednesday “Men in America” segments take any peculiar turns.
