On a recent episode of his hit Fox News show, Tucker Carlson revealed newly released footage from the January 6th Capitol riot that left many people questioning what really happened that day.
The Fox News host began the segment by discussing what we already know: the left’s claim that the people who entered the Capitol that day are terrorists couldn’t be further from the truth. While there were some bad apples, the majority of the so-called rioters acted more like peaceful tourists than terrorists.
“You don’t see people hiding bombs, or using bayonets, or firing weapons trying to take over the country with an insurrection,” Tucker stated.
“You see people walking around and taking pictures,” he continued. “They don’t look like terrorists, they look like tourists.”
“If you look at the guy in the Viking horns, the Chewbacca guy, you may reach the obvious conclusion maybe Psilocybin mushrooms aren’t good for you. And that’s fair,” Carlson added. “But no honest person could look at that video and decide America is under attack from terrorists.”
Next, Tucker played a clip of the newly released footage, which showed a side of the riot that we’ve not seen before.
“Surveillance footage showing a squad of people, dressed in all black, systematically entering the Capitol and kicking open one of the exterior doors on the Senate side,” Carlson explained as the video played. “These people appear to be well-trained and coordinated. They’re not high on hallucinogenic mushrooms.”
“The question is, who are they? And why don’t we know their names? And why aren’t they dressed like any of the other people in the footage that was just released?” he asked.
“Remember, we were attacked for saying this, but we’ve already been vindicated for it. We still don’t know how many federal agents were involved in the events that day on January 6th, but we have very good reason to believe from court documents that it’s a significant number,” Tucker continued.
“And here’s one clue: at a recent rally in Washington, the feds managed to arrest one of their own undercover agents,” he said. “There were so many feds at the event, that they lost track of each other, and arrested one of them. So we ask once again: how many federal agents were there on January 6? Why can’t we know?” he asked.

“What is clear is that, once again, this footage reveals that the first draft of history was a lie. An intentional distortion. A mirage created to control you,” Tucker said. “It was the work of a specific political party, it was the work of the Democratic Party.”
“So here’s a rule of thumb going forward if you ever watch television again or read the newspaper: When they are absolutely insistent that you believe something, when they keep beating you over the head with the same talking point again and again, beware. There’s a reason they’re saying that. When all of them are using exactly the same line, maybe there’s a reason for that. Maybe it’s coordinated. Maybe they’re lying,” the Fox News host added.
“That’s a common theme for virtually everything that happens in the news right now. Something happens, you’re not exactly sure what the outline is, you don’t know all the facts, nobody does, and all of a sudden, they hang a story on it that helps them politically, and they ram it down your throat day after day. It used to be called propaganda. Now it’s so ubiquitous, I don’t know what to call it,” Carlson concluded.
