Tucker Carlson Attacked By His Own For Jan. 6 Riot Comments
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell lashed out at Fox News host Tucker Carlson for his depiction of what actually happened at the supposed Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021.
McConnell and other RINOS attacked Carlson for accurately describing the mostly peaceful protest at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, as "mostly peaceful chaos."
"A handful of other Senate Republicans on Tuesday pushed back against Carlson’s claim that Jan. 6 was 'peaceful chaos,' with Sen. Thom Tillis of North Carolina blasting the remarks as 'bullshit,'" reported Breitbart.
"I think it’s bullshit," Tillis said.
"On that day, a lot of people incited violence and committed acts of vandalism, and my guess is that more than a few of them were agents of the fascist FBI engaging in the kinds of unconstitutional behavior (blatant entrapment) the disgraced Bureau is infamous for," Tillis added. "Anyone guilty of violence on that day should be punished. I believe that, and so does Tucker Carlson. He said so Monday night. This is not a difficult line to draw."
"It’s really sad to see Tucker Carlson go off the rails like that," Mitt Romney complained. He added that Carlson is "joining a range of shock jocks that are disappointing America and feeding falsehoods."
John Nolte of Breitbart wrote:
Bottom line: When someone is complaining that you reported a story but are not complaining you got the facts wrong, you are doing it exactly right. Especially when it’s a McConnell or a Romney doing the complaining.
After Tucker is done with this video, every minute of that footage should be scrutinized by Capitol security to ensure no security issues are revealed, and then released online in full to the public and, most especially, the lawyers of those facing charges for January 6.
That’s the American way.
Those opposed to this are not American. They are today’s version of Joe McCarthy.
The moment your embrace of due process and civil rights becomes political, you are Joe McCarthy — a disgrace to the office and the country.
