On Thursday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson criticized the FBI for not doing more to ascertain the criminals who firebombed a pregnancy center earlier this year.

Carlson made the remarks during an interview with the CEO of CompassCare Pregnancy Services, Joe Harden. The center released footage back in June showing that it had been vandalized and firebombed.
“[T]he FBI is all but ignoring violence committed against people who don’t vote for Joe Biden,” said Carlson during the segment. “In June, criminals fire-bombed a pro-life pregnancy center in Buffalo, a place called CompassCare Pregnancy Service.”
“The people that did this, the bombers, have not been caught,” Carlson continued. “Why? Because the FBI has not even bothered to investigate a fire bombing.”
Carlson went on to explain that, during the investigation, local police and federal agents took the surveillance footage from the pregnancy center, and they are now refusing to give it back.
“Then the attorney for the local police told the crisis pregnancy center they can’t have their own tapes back because those tapes might inspire right-wing violence,” Carlson stated. “Are you following the logic here? It’s completely insane.”
“It’s totally unacceptable,” Carlson added. “You can’t have a country run like this.”
There have been a number of reports of pregnancy center firebombings since the Supreme Court leaked its decision in Dobbs. V. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
Harden reiterated Carlson’s concerns.
“The FBI has gone from abdicating their duty to provide equal justice under the law to pro-life people like us, to downright attacking us,” said Harden during the interview. “That was our concern when we filed suit against the Amherst police department taking charge of the investigation to get our video back so we can start to prosecute whoever the perpetrators are.”
New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has announced $10 million in funding to protect abortion clinics, but she has not addressed whether she will offer similar funding to pregnancy centers.
