All day, Adam Kinzinger has really been losing it, even appearing on CNN, where he was then lectured by former U.S. Ambassador of Germany Ric Grenell. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer went completely insane on the Senate floor and was so enraged that he demanded Fox CEO Rupert Murdoch to stop Tucker Carlson from continuing with more coverage of January 6.
Nothing says “preserving democracy” like trying to silence your political rivals.
On the Senate floor, Schumer flat-out lied by asserting that Carlson claimed January 6 was not violent. Carlson never made such a claim. While there was violence, he claimed that there were also nonviolent demonstrators inside the Capitol. Because he doesn’t want that fundamental truth to be revealed, Schumer is the one who is lying.
It’s not the first time Schumer has attacked Fox and attempted to silence speech. I recently wrote on Chuck Schumer’s threat to Fox, in which he claimed that he had both the “right and the duty to instruct Rupert Murdoch and Fox.” Fox must acknowledge that they told “falsehoods” or he will take further “measures,” he claimed, adding that “democracy was at greater risk than it’s ever been.”
I don’t disagree with him when he says that Schumer is endangering “democracy” and our freedoms.
They are genuinely terrified that the narrative surrounding January 6 is unraveling and that people are becoming aware of perspectives other than the one that the Jan. 6 Committee and the Democrats cherry-picked, which was focused solely on using the riot to criticize former President Donald Trump and influence the midterm elections. Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, was one of the viewers who saw the show and understood the points being made.
Schumer and Kinzinger’s remarks that day were undoubtedly reprehensible, but Merrick Garland, the attorney general, may have told the biggest untruth. During a press conference, a reporter quizzed him about Carlson’s reporting. Garland is still lying, so pay attention. After discussing the assaults on officers “that day,” he adds, “Five officers perished.”
That day, no cops passed away. Ashli Babbitt was the sole one “killed” that day when she was shot by a Capitol Police officer. Now, several police officers killed themselves in the months that followed. That could lead to more inquiries as to why that might be. However, to claim that they were slain or that they passed on that day is a fraud and blatantly false.
However, this is only one illustration of the significance of Tucker Carlson’s broadcast on January 6. In order to make the riot worse and add “deadly” to it, Democrats and the media have been lying about this particular topic since the beginning, as Carlson pointed out. This is why it disgusts me so much that this lie is still being spread, supporting Tucker’s argument. Only that narrative matters to the Democrats; they don’t care about truth or facts.
