Tucker Carlson: January 6 Hearings ‘Insulting,’ ‘Deranged’ — ‘They Are Lying’
Thursday, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson hammered the House January 6 committee for the hearings they were holding during his broadcast.
Carlson questioned why the hearings had taken precedent over other problems plaguing the country and argued the committee members were not being truthful with their presentation.
Transcript as follows:
CARLSON: You know it tells you a lot about the priorities of a ruling class that the rest of us are getting yet another lecture about January 6 tonight from our moral inferiors, no less.
An outbreak of mob violence, a forgettable minor outbreak by recent standards, that took place more than a year and a half ago, but they’ve never stopped talking about it.
In the meantime, in the 18 months since January 6, gas prices have doubled. Drug ODs have reached their highest point ever. The U.S. economy is now careening toward a devastating recession at best, and scariest and least noted of all, this country has never in its history been closer to a nuclear war.
Yet, the other networks cannot be bothered to cover any of that tonight. Instead, they’ve interrupted their regularly scheduled programming to bring you yet another extended primetime harangue from Nancy Pelosi and Liz Cheney about Donald Trump and QAnon. The whole thing is insulting. 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 will do instead is to try to tell you the truth. We’ve attempted to do that since the day this happened.
We hated seeing vandalism at the U.S. Capitol a year and a half ago, and we said so at the time, but we did not think it was an insurrection because it was not an insurrection. It was not even close to an insurrection.
Not a single person in the crowd that day was found to be carrying a firearm — some insurrection. In fact, the only person who wound up shot to death was a protester. She was a 36-year-old military veteran called Ashli Babbitt. Babbitt was just over five feet tall. She was unarmed. She posed no conceivable threat to anyone, but Capitol Hill Police shot her in the neck and never explained why that was justified.
Those are the facts of January 6, but since the very first hours, they have been distorted beyond recognition, relentlessly culminating with last night.
Last night, “CBS Nightly News” told its viewers that insurrectionists at the Capitol on January 6 quote, “Caused the deaths of five police officers.” That is a pure lie. There is nothing true about it, and they know that perfectly well.
