Carlson: 'I know deception when I see it'

The Glenn Beck Program

Tucker Carlson’s been under fire the past few days, and a lot of it has to do with his recent discovery.

What was it?

Well, he received never-before-seen tapes of the so-called violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th and joined Glenn Beck to talk about them.

One of the clips shows the infamous “shaman” from the tapes being led through the Capitol Building by police, calmly and alone.

He explains that he “can't even guess as to what motivated them, to what we’re looking at here — but what [he] can guess is that this is not an act of violent terrorism.”

When pressed on why we’ve been told the riots were something that they weren’t, he continues, “The main conclusion that I drew is that Chuck Schumer, and the horrible Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell, filthy man, and Mitt Romney, and Thom Tillis, and Senator Cramer of North Dakota, like, they’re all lying. They’re all lying.”

He asks, “Why are they lying about what we can see plainly, and why didn’t they want us to see it?” He continues, “I know deception when I see it.”

It’s a fair question, and one that has to be on many Americans' minds as more evidence comes to the surface.

Carlson takes another shot and says, “It’s not enough to say, ‘Oh, it was the worst violent insurrection since Gettysburg’ or something. Stop with the overstatement, the hyperbole, and just explain to me what I’m looking at on the screen.”

Beck adds to it, asking, “Why aren’t they standing up and defending their own honor and integrity?”

It seems that honor and integrity are the last things on their minds.

Carlson doesn’t quite have an answer, saying, “If I allow you to lie to me, then I’m no longer a free man. I’m a slave.”

But he has a theory about their motivation. He explains, “This was a complex event in many facets. They simplified immediately into a good-vs-evil tale, as they do with everything, partly because they lack nuance and imagination, sophistication. But partly because this was a tool they were using for a purpose. It was a cudgel they were using to beat down their opponents and grab more power for themselves. And in effect, what it did was change the definition of terrorism.”

But what have they changed the definition of terrorism to?

Carlson says ominously, they’ve changed it to “Republican voters.”

A terrifying thought, but is he wrong?
