Fox News host Tucker Carlson opened an installment of his program this week blasting the media and political responses to his decision to reveal unreleased Jan. 6, 2021 footage.
Carlson aired the previously unreleased footage this week on his primetime show.
The host doubled down on his assertion that the video casts doubt on the assumed narrative surrounding Jan. 6.
"The FNC host also questioned the takeaways from politicos and the media, including that the January 6, 2001 unrest was 'the worst' attack on the United States since the Civil War," reports Breitbart.
"One of the hallmarks of people who are telling the truth in case you’re wondering how to tell the difference, is that people who are telling the truth are calm," Carlson said. "They don’t wave their hands around and make wild accusations, they don’t need to do that. It’s enough to say what they know."
"And if honest people turn out to be wrong about something they have claimed, they’ll admit it, they don’t double down on false," Carlson added. "They made a mistake, and that’s okay. It’s not like they’re claiming to be God."
"But is January 6the the worst assault on the US government since the Civil War?" Carlson asked. "That’s insane. It’s not even close. How about March of 1954 when Puerto Rican separatists shot five Congressmen in the Capitol Building? Five Members of Congress shot in the building. It’s all bad, but the worst since the Civil War years? You’re just a flat out liar if you’re saying that."
