Democratic leaders are trying to make the American people believe an awful lie.
But it’s not going as smoothly as they hoped.
Tucker Carlson revealed a cold hard truth that made Democrats absolutely insane.
Democrats are in a bad situation for the 2022 midterm elections. President Joe Biden is unpopular, the economy is doing badly, Covid is still around, inflation is out of control and the American people don’t want more mindless spending.
They are clinging to the January 6th, 2021 U.S. Capitol riot, because they see that as their only hope for winning.
On Wednesday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson took aim at the insane way that Democrats were overreacting to January 6, trying to make it into a national day of mourning.
“How do you commemorate something like this history-changing event that’s horrible to think about, yet so significant in the life of the country?” Carlson questioned. “Well, body counts are the traditional measure. When the nation was wracked by unimaginable loss in years past. That’s how we remembered it.”
He noted that 40,000 Americans died at Gettysburg, 2,400 lost to Pearl Harbor, and nearly 3,000 Americans died on 9/11.
“On January 6, there was — let’s see, actually there was just Ashli Babbitt. Ashli Babbitt was not a union soldier. She’s not a deckhand on the Arizona. She is not even a heroic fireman rushing into a collapsing office tower. She was merely a Trump voter.” Carlson noted.
Carlson pointed out that Babbitt was unarmed and was shot and killed by a Capitol Hill police officer who had a documented history of reckless behavior.
“The list of those who weren’t killed on January 6 is quite long. It’s impressively long. It includes all 535 Members of Congress, as well as their entire staff, and the Press Corps that covers them. None of them died. They’re still around,” he pointed out.
He added that even Republicans are helping the Democrats’ talking points.
Carlson played a clip of Sen. Ted Cruz, saying, “We are approaching a solemn anniversary this week, and it is an anniversary of a violent terrorist attack on the Capitol where we saw the men and women of law enforcement demonstrate incredible courage, incredible bravery, risked their lives to defend the men and women who serve in this Capitol.”
Tucker Carlson pointed out how wrong that account was.
“He described January 6 as a violent terrorist attack. Of all the things that January 6 was, it was definitely not a violent terrorist attack. It wasn’t an insurrection. Was it a riot? Sure. It was not a violent terrorist attack. Sorry.” Carlson said.
“So why are you telling us that it was, Ted Cruz? And why are none of your Republican friends who are supposed to be representing us and all the people have been arrested during this purge saying anything? What the hell’s going on here?” he added.
“You’re making us think maybe the Republican Party is as worthless as we suspected it was. That can’t be true. Reassure us, please. Ted Cruz?” Carlson concluded.
