Sometimes, tucker carlsons are presented as “whataboutisms,” as in a statement like, “Donald Trump developed the COVID vaccine while Anthony Fauci lied.”
The statement is made to turn blame (for the million deaths) away from Trump’s denials and belated action, and present at worst an “Everyone made some mistakes” narrative.
Beware of tucker carlsons. They are meant solely to deceive, not as honest arguments.

6 thoughts on “The “Tucker Carlson” That Proves The Jan. 6 Insurrection Never Happened.”
THE FACTS: Brian Sicknick, a United States Capitol Police (USCP) officer, died on January 7, 2021, after having two strokes one day after he responded to an attack on the U.S. Capitol. The District of Columbia chief medical examiner found that Sicknick had died from stroke, classifying his death as natural and additionally commented that “all that transpired played a role in his condition.”
The Fox News Tucker Carlson: “Five officers died on that day.” Now, that’s just not some guy on Twitter. That’s the attorney general of the United States. That’s a man whose honesty is central to his job. If you had a choice between IQ and integrity in an attorney general, of course you go with integrity because it’s essential, but Joe Biden’s attorney general, Merrick Garland, is a liar. He just lied about something that is provably false. Who are these five officers who were “killed that day“?
The facts about Tucker Carlson’s clever use of that day, here’s what actually was said: “Over 100 officers were assaulted on that day. Five officers died.”
Get it? Garland never said they died that day. He said they were assaulted that day. That is the tucker carlson that Tucker Carlson himself uses to defend his claim that nothing bad happened.
Fox News quibbles about whether the attack on the U.S. government was the worst or the 2nd worst, as though that is the point. The point is that it was an attack on the government, which Fox News’s mouthpiece has been denying, not whether it was #1 or #2 in severity. The purpose of the tucker carlson is to confuse you with a fake argument.
Then as usual, the tucker carlson descends into “whataboutism”:
So more whataboutism: Jan 6 was no big deal because it is only #2 in the attacks on government, and the non-existent “Antifa” (meaning an imagined organization opposed to fascists, i.e. anti-white supremacy) had a riot across the street from the White House (which in not an attack on the U.S. government.)
It has nothing to do with the attempted coup, but as is usual with tucker carlsons, they’re thrown into the argument to confuse the issue.
Here are the facts: A statement prepared by the Department of Justice, which was signed by Chansley and his attorney, provides a timeline of the rioter’s movement in the Capitol.
Chansley entered the Capitol through a broken door as part of a crowd that “was not lawfully authorized to enter or remain in the building” and that he was one of the first 30 rioters inside. It goes on to note that although officers asked Chansley and others multiple times to leave the Capitol,he did not comply and actively riled up his fellow rioters. The statement describes Chansley’s interactions with officers, but also points out that he “entered the Gallery of the Senate alone.”
Chansley pleaded guilty in September 2021 to a felony charge of obstructing an official proceeding. He was sentenced in November 2021 to 41 months in prison for his guilty plea, as well as 36 months of supervised release and a fine of $2,000 in restitution.
The facts reveal the tucker carlson for what it is, a bold-faced lie.
See, it was awful, vandalism, and assault (though the tucker carlson never explains why “that normal tourist visit” was awful) but it was not violent insurrection. What was it?
Apparently, an “awful” mob of “vandals, assaulting” the police in an attempt to overturn the election of the President of the United States, does not meet the tucker carlson MAGA description of an insurrection.
By the way, Tucker, how does your commentary reconcile with the description of a traitor.
I wonder if Tucker would blatantly lie if paid factory wages. The price for his reputation and soul must be in the millions of dollars.
Tucker Carlson’s reputation has value only to MAGAs. No moral person has any respect for the lying traitor. When Fox finally throws him under the bus, there will be no mourners other than MAGAs, if them.
As one of the heirs to the Swanson TV-Dinner fortune I’m not so sure he does it solely for the money. Tucker Swanson McNear Carlson – In my experience people with three surnames tend to be quite well off.
