Tucker Carlson: Media will never admit there was no insurrection

'Tucker Carlson Tonight' host shows how the media uses history as a tool to distort the truth

In March 1971, a bomb went off in the U.S. Capitol building. There was no mystery about who did it. A Marxist group called the Weather Underground took responsibility for it, even before the explosions. The Weathermen weren’t ashamed of what they did. They planned to overthrow the U.S. government, and they wanted everyone to know it. Yet even at the time, many Americans weren’t aware of this. The media immediately began telling a very different story about what happened. The Washington Post, for example, explained that the radical left wasn’t actually to blame for the Capitol bombings. Instead the culprit was something far more general, something called quote, "the easy contagion of extremism in a time of dark frustrations and deep disillusionment." Whatever that means.

The problem was, there was a Republican president at the time. The actual bombers remained welcome in polite society. Years later, one of them became a quote, "distinguished professor" at a supposedly prestigious American university. Even now, fifty years after the fact, the whitewash continues. "Politico" just ran a long piece telling us that the real villain in the 1971 terrorist attack on the Capitol was Richard Nixon, who was not there. According to Politico, the bombing, quote, "supercharged Nixon's paranoia" and led to Watergate. The story ends this way: "Fifty years on, it seems remarkable how fast the 1971 attack faded from collective memory."


Oh, but is it remarkable? Maybe not so remarkable. Leftists commit violence and the media covers for them? That’s something most of us are highly familiar with. It’s been happening for a very long time. To this day, there are a lot of Americans who think a right-winger killed JFK. Of course, the gunman was a man so committed to communism that he defected to the Soviet Union. But the media told the public it was a conservative, so many believed them. The point here, the thing you should remember, is the first draft of history is very often a lie. That’s not an accident. Partisans understand that history is a tool they can use to accumulate power. So they lie about something to suit their ends, they keep lying, and before long their lies are recorded as truth. They’re on Wikipedia, and your kids believe them. We’ve watched that happen all this year in real-time. We’re living through distorted history as we watch the events of January 6 described by everyone. Here’s how the media described that day:

TARA SETMEYER, CNN: That day will be another day that lives in infamy in history, similar to Pearl Harbor and 9/11

CHUCK SCHUMER: We can now add January 6th, 2021 to that very short list of dates in American history that will live forever in infamy.

BIDEN: The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.

ANDERSON COOPER: 150 days since the worst single act of political violence since the Civil War.

CHRIS HAYES: The worst attack on American democracy since the Civil War SCHUMER: The greatest attempt at insurrection since the Civil War.

STEVE SCHMIDT: The 1/6 attacks are likely to kill a lot more Americans than were killed on the 9/11 attacks.

MATTHEW DOWD: Though there was less loss of life on January 6th, January 6th was worse than 9/11.

For the record, we really try our hardest not to put liars, people we know who lie for a living, on television, because we are responsible. Other channels do it every day.


Because we are literal, let’s go through the evidence: only one person was killed on Jan. 6, and that person was an unarmed female protestor, shot in the neck without warming by a Capitol Hill police officer who happens to have a documented history of extreme recklessness. The protestors, meanwhile, killed no........
