Tucker Carlson warned Thursday that a narrative full of lies in regards to the events at the US Capitol is being used to “justify the most sweeping crackdown on civil liberties and free speech in the history of this country.”
“Last week’s deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol was not an act of racism, nor was it an insurrection,” Carlson noted during a monologue, adding “It was not an armed invasion by a brigade of dangerous White supremacists. Those are lies.”
“Why are they demanding that you believe those lies?” Carlson asked viewers.
The host noted that while “The riot was the perfect illustration of why we should oppose all mob action…instead, [Washington elites] are trying to use this moment to increase their own power, so they’re lying about what you saw.”
“They’re calling it a precisely orchestrated coup attempt. They’re telling you the Chewbacca guy you saw on video, the guy with the painted face and the Viking hat, was actually the leader of some super secret commando unit here to overthrow our government,” Carlson emphasised.
“It’s absurd and insulting, yet it’s working,” Tucker urged, adding “What happened last week is being used to justify the most sweeping crackdown on civil liberties and free speech in the history of this country.”
In a reference to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s leaked instructions to his employees, Carlson went on to explain that “this is much bigger than silencing just one man, and it’s going to go on much longer than just this week.”
“Maybe Jack Dorsey isn’t so bright. He just admitted out loud with the rest of them are still denying: This isn’t really about Donald Trump, and it never was. It’s definitely not about what happened last week at the Capitol,” Carlson proclaimed.
“It is about controlling you, and the country you thought was yours, forever,” he added, noting tongue in cheek “Sorry, there’s a national crisis going on and we have no choice.”
Reports continue to emerge on what really went down at the Capitol, yet Democrats continue to mould the narrative in an effort to justify eradicating their political opposition, while big tech and the corporate media are embracing the narrative as a means of wiping out their competition.
