On Fox Monday evening news, Tucker Carlson presented the Capitol Riot film from January 6, 2021. Carlson asserts that newly released footage from January 6 “demolishes” Democratic claims of “insurrection.” Carlson points out that it appears to show that Capitol Police did not attempt to prevent one of the most prominent rioters, known as the “QAnon Shaman,” from reaching the Senate floor. The video shows multiple officers opening doors for him and assisting him into the Senate chamber.
The US Capitol Police appeared to give Jacob Chansley, the “QAnon Shaman,” free reign during the January 6, 2021 riot, escorting him and even allowing him to enter the Senate chamber on that day, according to surveillance footage made public on Monday night and reported by the New York Post. Chansley did not appear to have been restrained by handcuffs or subdued by the cops.
Chansley had stated that one of his greatest regrets is thinking it was appropriate when police officers waived them in. Carlson then says that Chansley knew that the Capitol police were his allies and asks viewers if Chansley was doing such a heinous crime; why didn’t the policemen standing right next to him arrest him?
Carlson, on the other hand, was incensed by the conduct of the police force. He added that the recordings indicate that the Capitol police never detained Jacob Chansley. They assisted him and served as his tour guides. Chansley was given a 41-month sentence for his involvement in the event.
His eccentric attire and appearance were prominently included in the coverage of the disturbance, and he eventually became the most known participant. Carlson also aired an interview video in which Chansley stated that he believed Capitol Police had permitted their admission and that his actions were legal.
On January 6, 2021, hundreds of protesters rushed to the Capitol building during the certification of the electoral votes. After viewing the video, you will get why. Taken as a whole, the video evidence does not support the notion that January 6 was an uprising, Carlson stated while displaying part of the disclosed material in a voice-over. The evidence refutes the claim.
Carlson said that is precisely why the Democratic Party and its media supporters kept you from seeing it. By restricting the photographs that may be viewed from January 6, they control the public’s perception of that day.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy granted Tucker Carlson unprecedented access to about 41,000 hours of security footage linked to the violence. This infuriated the traditional media, who feared Carlson would selectively use the footage to fit his own story. The Republican from California stated that these media outlets were only “jealous” because he had the videos.
The Fox News anchor then criticized the legacy media for their narrative-driven, narrative-selective coverage of the incident, which made Chansley the public face of the riot and promoted the idea that the incident was a violent effort to overturn democracy.
