The ringleader of a show in which a gaggle of liberal women and one or two female “conservative” controlled opposition members tell America what to think says Tucker Carlson’s release of Jan. 6 footage is like something out of George Orwell’s “1984.”
And they say irony is dead.
On Monday, Carlson unveiled previously unreleased footage from Capitol Hill surveillance cameras showing what the Capitol incursion was really like. Spoiler alert: That whole “threat to democracy” thing was bunkum, and Democrats (with a smattering of RINO enablers) knew it.
“The footage does not show an insurrection or a riot in progress,” Carlson said.
“Instead, it shows police escorting protesters through the building, including the now-infamous ‘QAnon Shaman.’”
Now, obviously, this poses serious issues for those in the establishment media who pronounce the date of the incursion as if they were telling a ghost story to children: “Jah~hah~hah~hah~nuua~rry sixth,” the intonation goes, as if merely by hearing it you’re supposed to wet your pants in fear for the state of our republic.
The election was to be overturned! The rabblement wanted to hang Mike Pence! There were Proud Boys! Oath Keepers! Do you know who those people are? Neither do we, really, but they’re very, very frightening, and they were going to pull off a coup to install our very own Pinochet, Donald Trump!
Except that’s not what the footage showed, and it raises serious questions about what the Capitol Police were doing that day and why doors in the Capitol were being held open for the protesters by individuals in civilian clothes.
