Democrats have been operating round like decapitated chickens ever since information broke that Home Speaker Kevin McCarthy has given Tucker Carlson unfettered entry to surveillance footage from contained in the Capitol throughout the Jan. 6. 2021 riot by Trump supporters.
The Fox Information host will air 5 tales culled from the footage Monday and Tuesday nights, countering the overblown “riot” narrative the Democrats and their media toadies have been pushing since Day One.
The characterization of conservative Republicans as an “ultra-MAGA semi-fascist” menace to democracy was pushed by the partisan J6 committee and was the Democrats’ fundamental gross sales pitch on the midterms final 12 months.
Dems don’t have a lot else to run inside 2024, so Carlson’s fact-finding mission is an existential risk to their electoral prospects.
That’s why they’re hyperbolically accusing McCarthy of endangering the safety of the Home and handing the instruments for “the subsequent riot” to Carlson who, it received’t shock you to study, they fantasize is a Russian sleeper agent.
However whenever you see what Carlson’s workforce has put collectively over the previous two weeks of combing via 1000’s of hours of video, you’ll be struck by how completely different the fact was contained in the constructing that day in comparison with the J6 committee’s deceptively edited prime-time dramas, produced by a former ABC Information president for optimum emotional impression.
As an illustration, Carlson’s workforce says the J6 committee added audio to silent CCTV footage, inserting screams and different crowd mayhem sounds, to make it appear extra ominous. The bookmarks on the video trove present the J6 committee had entry to the identical footage but selected to point out America solely what suited its divisive narrative.
There’s no sugarcoating what occurred that day; J6 was stunning and violent in elements. It stays a stain on the nation, nevertheless it was not an “riot” or a “terrorist” assault.
It was not the “best risk” to American democracy for the reason that Civil Struggle, as Joe Biden claims. It was not worse than 9/11. The one individuals who died that day had been Trump supporters.
Regardless of the largest investigation in FBI historical past — overkill for certain — nobody has been charged with “riot” and there’s no proof of any organized plot to overturn the presidential election outcome. Proceedings resumed a number of hours late and Biden’s victory was licensed.
It was an unpleasant explosion of mob anger, nevertheless it lasted mere hours, in comparison with the months of lethal mayhem that engulfed the nation earlier than the 2020 election.
But the American public has been subjected to a marketing campaign of lies about J6 with cherry-picked video performed on a loop for over two years of violent Trump supporters smashing home windows.
We have now been informed the lie that law enforcement officials had been killed when not a single one was. Brian Sicknick died the subsequent day of a stroke.
It has been a continuous, one-sided propaganda marketing campaign whereas Democrats dominated each lever of energy in Washington.
However now the GOP controls the Home, it’s time for transparency, and that’s what McCarthy has delivered.
Carlson will present the counter-narrative in order that the American public will get a extra balanced concept of what occurred that day.
He’ll reveal that the J6 committee twisted the whole lot.
He’ll present tons of of peaceable individuals contained in the Capitol behaving like vacationers, queuing politely, strolling inside the rope traces, taking selfies, and stopping to choose up an overturned bollard, all whereas police look on.
Most strikingly, you will notice for the primary time the reality in regards to the so-called Qanon Shaman, Jacob Chansley.
That is the man with the horns and face paint who grew to become the poster little one of J6 villainy, and but whenever you watch his journey via the Capitol you’ll be shocked that he’s serving 3.5 years in jail for “obstructing an official continuing.”
What number of different innocent People had been sacrificed to a federal justice system perverted for the reason for a political lie?
Now it’s a safety danger?
That’s why Democrats are so frightened. Their edifice of lies is about to tumble and all they’ve left is to throw mud within the hope half the nation will keep at nighttime. Defaming Carlson is their favourite tactic.
Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin informed MSNBC’s Pleasure Reid that it was a “severe safety danger” to present the tapes to Carlson as a result of he’s “pro-Putin . . . that actually is out of Putin’s playbook.”
As ordinary, Raskin’s Russia collusion allusions make no sense however he appears to be saying that Vladimir Putin will by some means watch Carlson’s program and discover ways to assault the Capitol. “The explanation all of [the footage] wasn’t launched is exactly as a result of flooring design, it lays out evacuation routes, it lays out the place the vice chairman went, it lays out the place the senior members of Congress had been evacuated,” mentioned Raskin.
What a joke.
Firstly, Carlson’s workforce has been meticulous about anticipating safety considerations and the footage they use might be vetted by the Home earlier than it airs.
Secondly, the J6 committee confirmed infinite footage of then-VP Mike Pence and Republican Sen. Josh Hawley being evacuated, plus scenes from inside McCarthy’s workplace as his staffers ready to flee. No safety considerations there?
Thirdly, Nancy Pelosi’s filmmaker daughter seems to have been given entry to the footage to make a documentary.
Carlson’s program has been much more accountable and prudent.
