Fox News host Tucker Carlson discussed the lasting impact of the Democrat party and federal government’s response to the protests on January 6, 2021 during Friday night’s edition of his television show.
“Two years later, it’s clear that Ashli Babbitt is – her death – is by far the most significant thing that happened at the US Capitol building that day, but at the same time, it is the least talked about event of January 6,’ Carlson said.
“Why is that?” the host asked rhetorically. “Well, because the facts about what actually happened on January 6 disrupt the lies, what they told you happened on January 6, and those lies have proven very useful to the Biden administration and to permanent Washington.”
Carlson continued, “On the basis of a wholly created myth about what happened that day, the Biden Pentagon conducted an unprecedented political purge of the entire U.S. military.”
“The FBI and various intel agencies increased their control over the American media and most obviously, the DOJ has been allowed to prosecute and jail hundreds of nonviolent political protesters whose crime was having the wrong opinions,” Carlson added.
“Lies about January 6, which have been relentless, have enabled some of the most unscrupulous people in our country to make a mockery of our Bill of Rights and to steal our core freedoms,” Carlson said.
Carlson then connected the “lies” about that day to how the media has handled the death of Ashli Babbitt, a protester who – initially – was reported as the only January 6 death.
“So they can’t talk about Ashli Babbitt,” the Fox host noted. “Talking about Ashli Babbitt makes it very clear who the real culprits are and who the real threats to this country continue to be and they’re not the January 6 protesters.”
Carlson concluded, “So instead, they lie about what happened that day and they do it in the boldest possible ways, without shame and with maximum aggression.”
