Tucker Carlson Calls into Question January 6 Media Consensus w/ Surveillance Footage That Raises Alarms
“You can see where they help him [Jacob Chansley] open a door to go into the Senate chamber.”
If you ask Chat GPT, Wikipedia, or the corporate media, “Jacob Chansley, also known as the “QAnon Shaman,” is a prominent supporter of the far-right QAnon conspiracy theory and a participant in the January 6, 2021, storming of the United States Capitol building in Washington D.C. Chansley gained widespread attention for his distinctive appearance, which included a fur headdress, face paint, and bare chest adorned with tattoos. He was photographed inside the Capitol building carrying a spear and a sign that read “Q sent me.” Chansley was later arrested and charged with several crimes, including violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.”
For the alleged “violent entry and disorderly conduct,” Jacob Chansley was sentenced to 41 months in prison.
But newly-surfacing video footage shown on Tucker Carlson Tonight paints an entirely different picture. Chansley’s behavior did not appear “violent” or “disorderly.” In fact, police escorted him around the Capitol building — gave him a tour. Watch.
“You saw him [Jacob Chansley] walk past about nine other police officers that didn’t even give him a look. … You can see where they help him open a door to go into the Senate chamber,” stated Australian journalist Miranda Devine.
In addition to the “QAnon Shaman” footage being placed in a whole new context, Carlson’s revelations raise questions about selective editing by the Jan 6 Committee in relation to Senator Josh Hawley.
Tucker Carlson reported, “When the [January 6] Committee wasn’t accusing Republican officeholders of planning riots on January 6, it was accusing them of running away from those riots like cowards. In the case of Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri, the committee and their allies accused him of both. To prove that Josh Hawley was a coward. The committee released a video of him loping out of the building on the afternoon of January 6 with a police escort. The tape became a staple on social media. Democrats laughed with derision.”
But after further review from the Tucker Carlson team, “that famous clip was a sham, edited deceptively by the January 6 Committee. The clip was propaganda, not evidence. The actual videotape shows that Hawley was one of many lawmakers being ushered out of the building by Capitol Hill police officers and, in fact, was at the back of the pack. The coward tape was a lie — one of many from the January 6th Committee.”
Tucker Carlson’s January 6 segment dominated the conversation on Twitter.
Elon Musk even weighed in.
Mike Cernovich stated, “What a day today was. From the SPLC doing propaganda for accused domestic terrorists to the Big Lie of the January 6 being exposed. Twitter is in a golden age of truth.” Elon replied, “shocking indeed.”
Another Twitter user said, “@BBCNews have ran 3 separate negative Twitter stories on their online feed last two days. They are not covering the January 6 new evidence. Journalism is dead.” Elon responded and pressed BBC News. “What say you, @BBCWorld? Your credibility is at stake.”
Legacy media fired back at Tucker Carlson.
The face of Fox News is doing everything in his power to sanitize the horrific violence the nation saw unfold in real-time at the U.S. Capitol in the aftermath of the 2020 election.
And on Monday night, he had a major assist from Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, who granted him exclusive access to tens of thousands of hours of January 6 security camera footage.
CNN later slammed Tucker Carlson’s show — not an “actual news organization.”
McCarthy, of course, knew precisely what he was doing when he handed over the footage to Carlson while denying it to actual news organizations. Carlson has been one of the loudest, most obnoxious media figures denying the reality of January 6. He routinely mocks the notion that an insurrection took place and has even given platform to the fringe idea the assault could have been a “false flag” attack staged by the federal government — something Carlson continued to fan the flames of on Monday.
Ideas like those were once considered to be extreme, confined to the outskirts of right-wing media where shameless charlatans like Alex Jones spin fantasies for their audiences. But now it’s available every night at 8pm for millions to watch, courtesy of the highest-rated cable channel — and, more importantly, the Republican Party’s de-facto kingmaker.
So who do you believe? Tucker Carlson or CNN?
No matter where you stand, the footage revealed by the Tucker Carlson team appears to blow holes in aspects of the existing legacy media narrative — and the justice system that has held American citizens as political prisoners in relation to this sad day. At the very least, it is important, as agreed upon by 80% of likely U.S. voters, that the public should be able to view all the videos of the Capitol riot.
