Delusion is defined as the act of tricking or deceiving someone Unfortunately, the teenage Buffalo killer was himself a victim. He was a victim of delusion about “white replacement” probably by Tucker Carlson of Fox News as he is one of its most visible proponent. His young life is ruined. He now faces a life in prison and probably in solitary confinement for his own protection.
I wonder if Carlson is proud of his disciple’s terrorism. I wonder how many more deluded kids like this one will kill people just because their skins are black. Does Carlson or Fox News feel remorse for their roles in this horror? Or will they continue to delude? Democracy depends on informed voters not deluded voters. Carlson and Fox news are fast becoming killers of our democracy with delusion.
