Fox News guest Jason Whitlock has insisted that the Texas shooting saw children get murdered because “traditional masculinity” is “under attack”.

The world has been reeling this month after two mass shootings took place in the US within two weeks.

On 14 May, a racist shooter opened fire in a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, and just 10 days later, a teenager killed 21 people, including 19 children, in a shooting at Robb Elementary School in the town of Uvalde, Texas.

But on 26 May, Fox News invited Blaze Media‘s Jason Whitlock to be interviewed on Jesse Watters Primetime, with host Jesse Watters asking him: “What do you think is the main factor in our culture that’s triggering this kind of rise in mass shootings, especially at schools?”

Whitlock responded: “Cowardice. Fear and cowardice. Our culture is controlled by fear and cowardice. Masculinity, traditional male values, are under attack.

“It’s not any mystery why young boys are confused, angry, confused about their identity, angry at the world. Their natural instincts have been under attack… since we turned over our culture to the pansies in northern California and their social media apps.

He continued: “We haven’t created a culture that supports men doing what comes natural to them – protecting women and children. That’s what comes natural to us when we’re allowed to be men.

“But this new culture we’ve built is set up to totally annihilate, eliminate our natural instincts and make us think, ‘Oh, the people in northern California know better than God about what a man is and what a man should do’.

“Men, boys, under attack. They’re acting out angrily and we are too cowardly to do anything about it.”

The pair continued to blame everything for the Texas shooting, from trans folk to a lack of hunting, in order to avoid the real issues of extremism in the US and gun control.

Watters said Whitlock was “right about the social media pansy element”, and said that social media had “taken the male brain and just warped it, and changed the brain chemistry”.

“They’re just not doing the same sorts of activities that young men used to do,” Watters continued.

“They’re just zoning out and looking at a screen… They used to go hiking, they used to go hunting, they used to play sports, they used to go hang out with other guys.

“There’s not a lot of that going on as much as it used to, and I think that does play a huge role in this.”

Later in the interview, Whitlock attributed the “attack on masculinity” to trans rights and Black Lives Matter, insisting: “We’re spending all of our time making sure there’s a safe space for Lia Thomas to swim against girls in the Ivy League.

“We’re obsessed with making that George Floyd, hyped up on drugs, we better send a limo and two women to go give him a reach around and escort him to jail as politely as possible.”
