Tucker Carlson dropped a bombshell during an interview with Steve Krakauer on ‘The Fourth Watch Podcast’. The FOX News Host revealed that his son was in the building during the unrest that occurred on January 6th. Tucker Carlson’s son, Buckley Carlson, is reportedly a staffer for Indiana Republican Rep. Jim Banks. Carlson said that he did not agree with what happened at the Capitol on January 6th.
“I hated what happened on January 6, you know.” the Fox News host said.. “One of my kids was actually in the building when it happened. I was on the phone in real time. I’m from Washington. I hate disorder. I hate breaking windows above all else. I just don’t like when people break windows or litter. I’m about order and my house is clean, I really believe in that.” He said.
While he doesn’t agree with how the protesters conducted themselves, he opposes how Democrats and the Biden administration have seized on the unrest to violate civil liberties.
“So if people covering January 6th had been willing to just roughly tell the truth,” Carlson added. “[…] but not use it as a partisan instrument to suspend civil liberties, I kinda would’ve just let it lie. Okay, people got all wound up, I get it. Some of them misbehaved, I’m not gonna defend that, but it has been used like so many events throughout history as a pretext for something else. So they lie about what actually happened, they repeat the lie with maximum aggression, and over time, that lie solidifies into the common understanding of what happened.”
Democrats seized on the unrest on January 6th to push authoritarian police state measures and mistreat J6 protesters. “They are treating those people worse than they treat the terrorists at Gitmo (short for Guantanamo),” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R) claimed at a Cobb County Republican Party breakfast.
