TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Just today, the DOJ [Department of Justice], the Biden administration announced it's charging a host at Infowars, a man called Owen Shroyer, with several federal crimes, including, quote, “entering a restricted area on January 6th.” Well, that sounds bad. What did Owen Shroyer do? He didn't go inside the Capitol building on January 6. He stood on the Capitol steps with hundreds of other people. He didn't even loot Macy's, like Black Lives Matter. He just stood there on the Capitol steps, a building he thought he owned as an American citizen.

What's going on here exactly? Well, Owen Shroyer's real crime appeared to have occurred in December of 2019 when he shouted mean things to Jerry Nadler during a congressional hearing. The DOJ accused him of disorderly conduct and told him, “Never go near the Capitol again. You don't want to hurt Jerry Nadler's feelings.” He disobeyed. Now, he's going to jail on Monday.

Are you cool with this, Dick Cheney's daughter? Is that all right with you? Is this the country you want to live in? How about that, Adam Kinzinger? Is this the democracy you fought for? Please. So the ringleaders of the riots go free, especially if they're working for the FBI, but the people who offend Joe Biden's friends, they're in jail.
