Chuck Schumer went after Tucker Carlson.
Schumer’s goal was to bully Fox News into censoring Carlson from playing January 6 videos.
But Tucker Carlson exposed the sinister secret Chuck Schumer doesn’t want you to know.
Chuck Schumer took to the floor of the U.S. Senate and delivered one of the most frightening attacks on the First Amendment and free speech by any government official in American history.
Schumer ordered Fox News to censor Tucker Carlson and prevent Carlson from playing any more of the 41,000 hours of Capitol security footage from January 6.
“I urge Fox News to order Carlson to cease propagating the Big Lie on his network, and to level with their viewers about the truth — the truth! — behind their efforts to mislead the public. Conduct like theirs is just asking for another January 6th to happen,” Schumer declared.
Schumer, other Democrats, and the entirety of the corporate media whined that the footage Carlson showed presented Trump supporters just walking around the Capitol.
During the Black Lives Matter riots in 2020 the press and Democrats deemed them mostly peaceful protests because they claimed only a small percentage of the crowd rioted.
Carlson wanted to show that contrary to the false narrative promoted by the left, January 6 was not some insurrection to overthrow the government.
On his show that night Carlson reacted to Schumer’s un-American attack on the free press.
“Chuck Schumer went on the Senate floor today to explode and to say that showing that video, evidence of wrongdoing by the federal government, including the security forces, the police department that Nancy Pelosi personally controlled, letting the public see any of that is a threat to democracy,” Carlson told viewers.
Government officials demanding the media censor videos that contradict the state’s official position is something one would expect out of Iran, Communist China or Russia.
But Carlson informed viewers this is exactly what happened in the heart of democracy.
“You don’t often see the Senate majority leader openly call for censorship on the floor of the Senate as if that was totally normal and didn’t contradict the spirit and the letter of the First Amendment,” Carlson continued.
But what really stuck out to Carlson is the fact that establishment RINOs like Mitch McConnell, Thom Tillis and Mitt Romney joined Schumer in condemning Carlson for bringing transparency to January 6.
Carlson said this was interesting for multiple reasons, chief among the fact that Romney, McConnell, Tillis and other establishment Republicans view themselves as on the same side as liberal Democrats like Chuck Schumer.
McConnell, Romney, Tillis, and Schumer all share a chief goal in office, which is to safeguard the swamp and maintain business as usual in Washington.
“From this, we learn two things: One, you’re getting close to what they really care about. And you have to ask yourself why? Why is it so important that they would degrade themselves by telling such obvious lies and calling for censorship? Why? What are they trying to protect?” Carlson added. “That might be worth exploring and we plan to. And the second thing we learned from this is that they’re on the same side. The Senate majority leader joins the Senate minority leader. Thom Tillis, Mitt Romney. They’re all on the same side!”
