Oh they know NOW... but for months the media was reporting that Officer Sicknick was beaten to death with a fire extinguisher!
Tucker pointed out in the vid that people like Liz Cheney and Anderson Cooper are STILL reporting that lie.
Also this week Biden's Press Secretary and Biden's Attorney General maintained the illusion officers died on J6.
Press Secretary: “J6 cost police officers their lives.”
Attorney General: “Over a hundred officers were assaulted on that day, 5 officers died.”
Tucker Carlson did not lie, not sure how you took it that way.
BTW "that person" is Biden's Attorney General Merrick Garland, he said, and I quote:
“Over a hundred officers were assaulted on that day, 5 officers died.”
Okay, I'll post my notes below...
That's the point, the media, as it tends to do, was focused on showing the worst of the worst that was available.
(and only a fraction was available)
Tucker is showing some of the newly released video that wasn't available to the media.
Point is, the new footage gives us perspective, much much more information.
You really should watch some of it...
For the second time, Tucker calls the incident awful and violent.
He completely condemns that side of it.
My notes on the video:
Surv video proves “at least 3 of the claims our leaders made about j6 are not true”… congressional leaders were hiding the tapes… video proves both dem and repub leaders lied and they responded by becoming angry, a sociopathic response… the lying in Washington is deep and bipartisan… pointed out that the lie that Officer Sicknick died as a result of being struck by a fire extinguisher is STILL being spread by people like Liz Cheney and Anderson Cooper… this week the Biden press secretary perpetuated the lie “j6 cost police officers their lives” AND Attorney General “Over a hundred officers were assaulted on that day, 5 officers died”
…. The assaults on police offers that day are “indefensible”, said that on j6 and still says it… points out the undeniably extreme hyperbole around j6… points out/shows footage of the mostly ignored May 2020 antifa attack (goal: force Prez from office) on DC, a lot more officers injured than j6… 9:27 says Chansley charged as domestic terrorist and sentenced to 4 years, shows clips of media portraying him as a violent and dangerous terrorist… 10:20 surv video of officers escorting Chansley through the building, opening doors for him, 9 of them within touching distance… 11:15 Chansley thanks officers for their help + cooperation in a prayer on the floor of the Senate
… this newly released surv video was withheld from Chansley’s attorneys (by people like Bennie Thompson, Liz Cheney, Adam Schiff), a violation of the Constitution, the judge in the case had no idea the cops were peacefully leading Chansley around the grounds when he said he was “Obstructing the functioning of the government”… prosecutors said Chansley “led the charge and was the flag bearer of the mob”, when he was actually alone while being shown around by the cops… leaders in both parties have said nothing about the implications of this newly released surv video (exculpatory evidence), instead they got angry at Tucker for showing it, not just Chuck Schumer, names 11 Republican Senators… Mitch McConnell. Thom Tillis, Mitt Romney were especially angry
… 17:00 responds to accusations of cherry-picking by saying no, ironically that’s actually what the j6 committee and Chansley prosecutors did when they selectively chose small segments of tape to distort the truth… j6 was awful, doesn’t defend it, hates vandalism and assault, but it was not an “insurrection”, not a “killing on officers”, those were lies… surv video was hidden and civil liberties were annihilated, and the leaders in both parties don’t care… makes fun of Schumer saying he “ran for his life on j6”… says he's invited the leaders who criticized his showing of the footage to come on his show and make their case, but they won’t of course… ends by asking why lies are still being spread about Chansley, how/why were prosecutors allowed to withhold evidence (surv video) from Chansley’s lawyer, and why is this man still in jail.
This video to me is mostly about the horrific injustice served up to Jacob Chansley
... and the way the truth is kept from the public by the governmental leaders.
They let America burn while they hid these tapes for 26 months!
And now they'd just as soon folks not watch any of it.
Also, I thoroughly enjoyed Tucker calling out the leaders of BOTH parties.
I guess what I'd like is for folks to at least watch the video from 10:20 to 13:13.
But don’t do it for me, do it for yourself.
