TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Well, there's been an enormous amount of hyperventilating in Washington over a segment we did two nights ago in which we pointed out that there were -- pretty clearly -- a number people in the crowd at the Capitol on January 6 who had been in previous contact with the FBI about what was going to happen that day. Some of them may have encouraged others at the scene to commit crimes.
Now, if that happened -- and we believe it did happen -- it would not be out of character for the FBI. They've done things very much like that before. That is beyond dispute.
But in this case, they are disputing it -- not the FBI directly, they haven't said a word, but the obedient minions of the national security state who run the social media accounts of The New York Times and occupy the anchor desks at CNN. They became hysterical when we mentioned it. “You can't say that," they screamed. “That's not allowed."
The geniuses at Twitter weighed in to inform us that the people we had described as “agents of the FBI" were in fact, just FBI informants, so “shut up." Hilarious.
But we won't shut up, and we shouldn't. It could not be more obvious at this point that the government is in fact hiding something, probably quite a few things.
The government is hiding more than 14,000 hours of video surveillance tape that shows exactly what did happen at the Capitol that day. Why are they hiding that? And why aren't news organizations demanding to see it?
You would hate to think that NBC News, for example, or Vox or The Atlantic or The Washington Post or The Daily Beast or The New York Times or any of them are in fact working to protect the regime at the expense of the public. But unfortunately, we are starting to conclude that. Please, prove us wrong.
