“It’s complicity in a campaign to fool the public, to make you believe that your personal concerns like the fact you can’t buy food or drive anywhere or the police won’t come because they can’t afford gas, those are not important,” Carlson says.
The House Select Committee’s highly-produced January 6 hearing is a dishonest campaign to distract the American people from the economic collapse happening as a result of Democrat policies, Fox News host Tucker Carlson claimed.
“So, what we saw last night was definitely not a hearing. It was a show trial. There was no pretense of fairness or accuracy. The whole thing was indecent,” Carlson said in his opening monologue of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Friday. “How many people were convinced by what they saw last night? Hmm, right around zero. They’re not going to win a single vote, so why did they do it? There had to be a reason. They’re not that stupid.”
After playing a montage of legacy media talking heads launching into hysterics about January 6, Carlson explained that the media’s role in this sham is to gaslight you into believe that’s the real threat to you and your family, not skyrocketing gas or food prices.
“But in this case, it’s more than ignorance. It’s more than stupidity,” Carlson said. “It’s complicity in a campaign to fool the public, to make you believe that your personal concerns like the fact you can’t buy food or drive anywhere or the police won’t come because they can’t afford gas, those are not important.”
“What’s really important is some other thing that you should be terrified of, ‘Russia. It’s Putin. It’s QAnon. It’s the White supremacists. They’re going to get you!’ And anyone who worries about gas prices, anyone who’s concerned about how to feed his or her family gets a lecture that actually you’re just selfish. ‘This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated’ Really, or whatever the talking point is.”
To add insult to injury, the record-high inflation is a hurting the American people by design, Carlson claimed.
“This is a perverse arrangement and you got to wonder who benefits. The Congress and the entirety of corporate media bury the actual problems facing the United States, pretend like they’re not even happening,” he said. “Why are they doing this and who is getting rich from it? Inflation doesn’t happen by accident. It’s the product of choices. The inflation we’re now living through was created on purpose. The United States government got to a place where the debt was too big, and the only answer was to inflate it away.”
“So record inflation is likely here to stay. If you want to know why they’re talking about January 6 in primetime, that’s why,” Carlson concluded.
Though the Jan. 6 hearings were broadcast by virtually every cable news outlet during primetime on Thursday, the viewership ratings were a total bust, according to Cable News Watch.
