Does Tucker Carlson have the hardest job in the World?

He has 1000s of hours of Jan. 6th security footage to sift though and make the attack on the Capital look like a Sunday picnic. Or as he called it  "peaceful chaos". The World watched the attack on the capital so he is going to have a hard time proving it was peaceful. Cheers!

    Sure, but he has control over all of what he does. That "journalist" chooses ratings over integrity, which is why I greatly pity him.

    If he really had integrity, he wouldn't be on FOX.  He'd have a real job.

    40,000 hrs. 
     
    I have still yet to see any answers to my questions....
     
    They need to release the footage to the public...not just Tucker or any other media. 
     
    It is public records and some of it is exonerating evidence for people accused of crimes....they did not commit.

    The real issue is that the whole event was unconscionable and should never have happened. Anyone who participated is, at the very least, guilty by association. There’s no justification for anything any of them did. Anything beyond that is just details that people with any sense of ethics needn’t be bothered with.

    Everyone who was there, including those facing criminal charges, rightly or otherwise, had business to not be there and instead respect the business of Congress. That’s really all there is to it.

    People in this country have the right to peacefully protest....and that is exactly what the vast majority of the people there did. 
     
    In this country, NO one is "guilty by association"....that is not how our justice system works and thank God for that. 
     
    Anyone who was violent or destroyed property should be in prison but not for peacefully protesting.

    Oh come on, it wasn’t peaceful at all. It was an angry mob spurred on by Trump being unable to be a gracious loser. They were there to disrupt the business of Congress, and they were willing to threaten the lives of the vice president and other officials.

    Perhaps you should watch some of the other videos....not just what MSDNC and the Jan 6th committee edited for you...
     
    Watch the videos of people walking calmly throughout the building. Watch as the Capitol police escort some of them through the building. Listen as the police tell them (the peaceful protesters that they have every right to be there as long as they are peaceful. Watch the police remove the barriers outside and wave protesters forward. Watch them take selfies with protesters. Watch people go into the woods to change clothes to appear to be Trump supporters. Watch the police in front of the House Chambers move from the door for no apparent reason just seconds before the unarmed female veteran was shot. (The only person to from violence that day) Watch as the police threw flash grenades Into peaceful crowd. Watch the 
    antifa member tell the CNN reporter..."we did this" Watch protesters stop people trying to break into the Capitol. 
     
    Why did the they refuse extra security? 
     
    The protesters were not there to stop Congress. They were there to encourage Congress to continue with their plan to object to 5 states results. We had the required members from both chambers to make the proper Constitutional objections. The 
    riot stopped this process....who did the riot help? NOT Trump and NOT Trump supporters.  
     
    Where some crazies there ...yes. And those people deserve to be put in prison....but make no mistake there were crazies there to instigate trouble. But those have still not been charged.

    BS. I watched it happen live in real time that day. There is absolutely no justification for it.

    So did I...
     
    So no answers to anything still....
    No one is claiming ones who participated in the riot a should not be in prison. But way too many charged who did no violence to anyone or property. And there is no justification for charging a person with something they did not do either.

    But you agree that the crowd shouldn’t have been there at all to disrupt Congress?

    The crowd had every right to protest. The crowd was not there to disrupt Congress. The crowd wanted the Congress to proceed as planned. The plan in Congress that day was to have the objectors required by the Constitution go through the process to not certify the 5 state elections that were in question. The crowd did not want that plan stopped. 
     
    Who benefited from Congress being disrupted?

    Nobody, but Trump's and the Republicans' nefarious scheme didn't work thanks to patriotic Americans like Mike Pence.

    You think Trump and Trump supporter benefited from that crap? Nope but Biden, Pelsoi, McConnell etc all benefitted. 
     
    The police woman over operations that week got a nice cooshy job at a CA university.  
    The officer who evacuated the Senate....by himself....got suspended. Why?

    The American people and our Constitution benefited by having a nefarious conspiracy, rooted in Trump’s fragile ego and inability to graciously acknowledge and accept defeat like a gentleman, to overturn the will of the people thwarted.

    If there were not questions about these 5 states, then yes admit defeat and go home. But there were and are still unresolved issues around those states. You can ignore them but it does not resolve them.    
    Trump will win in 2024 as we are winning in court. People are being arrested and found guilty. Voter registries are being cleaned up. Rules are drop boxes and harvesting are being cleared up as well. And where it is legal we will do it too. Have to win the game with the current rules in play.

    Just because there is footage of clueless individuals meandering around the Capitol, doesn't invalidate the fact that a violent mob was smashing windows and assaulting officers. Tucker Carslon counts on his viewers to be unable to belive two things are true at the same time. Anyone who entered the Capitol, peacefully or not, was guilty of a misdemeanor (entering a restricted building). The convictions and sentences are available online,  and I could not find a prison sentence for anyone convicted of that or for the most part, for those who were convicted of  picketing or protesting inside the Capitol, which is also illegal. Those who received prison time for more serious crimes were caught on camera. I cannot explain some of what was shown regarding officers not attempting to deter some of the trespassers. Maybe they were part of it, maybe they were outnumbered, or maybe they were incompetent. It doesn't mean the riot didn't happen. Even if all that footage is released directly to the public, people are going to see what they want to see. It's human nature. Tucker Carlson implied that the fact that the police fired tear gas was somehow a factor in riling up the mob. Compare that to his non reaction when the peaceful BLM protesters were cleared out of Lafayette Square. 

    Yes, we have the right to peaceful protests, but not on Federal property. And if you think finding people guilty of that is political, let me tell you about one of my family members. She was a Catholic nun, who was sentenced to and served six months in prison at the age of 70, for peacefully protesting on government property.

    Tucker Carlson will do and say anything for ratings. Consider that his text saying that he hates Trump passionately and yet he still continues to spew the lies.

    The thing I thought stunk about Lafayette Square is the protesters had a permit to protest until 7:00 PM. Trump started pushing them out at 6:35. Maybe if he would of waited until 7:00 the protesters would of dispersed by them self's and there would of been no need for tear gas. If I recall that was the protest Trump wanted to use a military Heat Ray on. And I'm sure if there had been one in the area Trump would of used it. Then he would of went to Lafayette Square and have his photo op of him holding up a bible. Cheers! This post was edited by Nanoose at March 9, 2023 7:12 AM MST
