Tucker Carlson wants you to believe the January 6 Committee lied to you

Tucker Carlson explained to his low information viewers why the ‘news’ network that provides him a platform to spew his bullshit didn’t air the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack hearing.

“This is the only hour on an American news channel that will not be carrying their propaganda live,” Carlson said, comparing the hearing to the stuff you might see in “totalitarian regimes.”

“They are lying, and we will not let them do it.”

Of course Tucker went on to lie to his audience that “the attack was ‘not an insurrection’ and downplayed the role of white supremacists. He claimed ‘not a single person in the crowd that day was found to be carrying a firearm,’ even as court documents show several rioters had firearms and dozens more wielded knives, bats and other real and makeshift weapons.

Tucker also claimed that “Ashli Babbitt, the woman fatally shot by police as she tried to force her way further into the Capitol, ‘posed no conceivable threat to anyone.’ He suggested that a man named Ray Epps was proof of FBI involvement, even though Epps told House investigators he has no FBI ties and other evidence undercuts the conspiracy theories surrounding him.”

And like other wingnuts who spew misinformation on a regular basis, Tucker claimed that police let the rioters inside the building. He focused on one video that showed rioters fighting their way through police lines and assault about 140 officers. The video does not explicitly show police laying out a welcome mat for those who stormed the Capitol on January 6. He also suggested that “early media reports that got details wrong about the death of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick were proof that everything the media has said was a lie.”

“The whole thing is insulting,” Carlson said at the beginning of his show. “In fact, it’s deranged. And we’re not playing along. This is the only hour on an American news channel that will not be carrying their propaganda live. They are lying and we are not going to help them do it.”

“What we are going to do is try to get to the truth,” Carlson said. “To do that, we’ve assembled a bunch of very knowledgeable people who know a lot more than they’re telling you on the other channels about what happened on Jan. 6.”

His hour long, commercial free propaganda fest featured Putin’s Puppet, Tulsi Gabbard and her views on what really matters in our country.
