Fox News personality Tucker Carlson argued that the manifesto written by the Nashville elementary shooter is not being released by authorities and the media for very specific reasons.

Nashville police chief John Drake confirmed that the suspect in the case identified “as transgender” and told reporters she left behind maps of the school and a “manifesto” indicating there may have been other targets.

The shooter opened fire early Monday morning and killed three students at The Covenant School, all 9 years of age, along with three adults.

Details of the manifesto, however, remain scarce.

“Well, that’s interesting,” Carlson said on his Tuesday night broadcast. “Within what seemed like minutes, we saw pictures of the rifles and the pistol. We now have horrifying body cam footage from within the school.”

“But somehow we can’t see the manifesto in which the killer explains why she killed.”

Tucker Carlson Explains Why Nashville Shooter Manifesto Remains Under Wraps

Tucker Carlson said the quiet part out loud, citing a pair of reasons why the Nashville shooter’s manifesto has yet to be released by authorities or the media.

The nation’s leading political commentator argued that what the nation saw, as evidenced in part by this tragedy earlier in the week, was an example of “trans terrorism.”

Carlson argues that the left doesn’t want attacks on the Christian community revealed through this manifesto. Some conservatives have speculated the school was targeted in part due to its religious association and its opposition to LGBT ideology.

“Somehow we can’t see the manifesto in which the killer explains why she killed. Why is that?” he asked.

“It’s not accidental. You know exactly why it is – because it would make the obvious undeniable,” added Carlson. “The trans movement is targeting Christians, including with violence.”

It’s quite the difference from other tragedies. Readers will recall that details about the Buffalo shooter’s manifesto were in the media almost immediately, warning of the dangers of racist white men.

Would Ruin the Left’s Gun Grab

Carlson went on to suggest another reason the manifesto remains under wraps – its release would reveal the war on Christians and focus the discussion on mental health instead of the Democrats’ argument to ban guns.

“We’re going to prevent you from learning why the shooter did it, and we don’t have to guess because she wrote a whole manifesto about why she did it,” he explained.

“But we can’t see it. We can only talk about the guns.”

Newsweek reports that LGBT groups are working to make sure the manifesto of the Nashville shooter never sees the light of day.

Doing so, they argue, could have a negative impact on trans people.

“Calls for police to release the ‘manifesto’ … has prompted concern among LGBTQ+ groups, who caution against the publication of such a document,” the outlet writes.

Would the media be concerned about “serious consequences” if such a massacre had been carried out by a deranged Trump supporter?

Of course not. The manifesto would have already been published. And there would be countless stories about how Republicans are violent and the former President is directly responsible.

The Nashville attack is very different. 

“We can’t know what kind of drug she was taking, what kind of hormones or SSRI or benzodiazepines,” Carlson said of the transgender shooter. “We can only guess. We can only talk about the guns.”

Nashville Police have said they won’t make the manifesto public “during an open investigation.”

“I have not read the whole entire manifesto,” Chief Drake told reporters. “Our team and the FBI have been working on this.”
