Tucker Carlson Says Capitol Riot Was Organized By The FBI ‘According To Government Documents’

In a fresh rant, Fox News presenter Tucker Carlson has bizarrely insinuated the Capitol riot was organised by the FBI.

The attack on the Capitol earlier this year shocked the world. Naturally, right-wing news outlets claimed that Trump supporters were in fact ANTI-FA and trying to enable fascism despite being an anti-fascist organisation.

Tucker Carlson has now found a new group to blame for the right-wing attackers, claiming the FBI began the riot that saw multiple casualties.

On Tuesday night, the Fox News host said the Capitol Riot was orchestrated by the FBI to ‘suppress political dissent.’ The statement was bizarre enough but the supporting explanation didn’t offer too much clarity.

Carlson asked:

Who did shoot Ashli Babbitt and why don’t we know? Are anonymous federal agents now allowed to kill unarmed women who protest the regime? That’s okay now? No, it’s not okay.

He then went on to attack the government saying they were ‘hiding the identity of many law enforcement officers present at the Capitol on January 6.’

Carlson went on to complain that some of those involved were not facing consequences:

Strangely, some of the key people who participated on January 6 have not been charged.

Look at the documents, the government calls those people unindicted coconspirators. What does that mean? Well, it means that potentially every single case they were FBI operatives. Really? In the Capitol on January 6?

Despite calling for action against the FBI, the presenter said those who had been arrested in connection with the attack on democracy had been harshly treated, and offered a thought for those in ‘solitary confinement.’

The presenter then began to call the FBI out directly as he said the government has charged those involved. After some dramatic rhetorical questions, he claimed this was because ‘They were all certainly working for the FBI. So FBI operatives were organizing the attack on the Capitol, on Jan. 6, according to government documents!’

It is worth noting that there are no documents that support these claims.

The presenter concluded the strange rant by saying:

If you empower the government to violate civil liberties in pursuit of a foreign terror organization, it’s just a matter of time before ambitious politicians use those same mechanisms to suppress political dissent. And that is what we are seeing now.

It seems that Carlson is demonstrating why Fox News is considered an entertainment show and not a news source.
