The Freak-Out Over Tucker’s January 6 Documentary Begins

Recommended Posts

Interesting.  Even though Darren Beattie has already beaten this to death months ago I might plunk down a dollar and watch this.  :niterider:

 

The original narrative about January 6 is not to be disturbed, no matter how many facets of that original narrative have been shattered.

Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night played a brief trailer for his three-part documentary looking at the events of January 6. “Patriot Purge” will premiere on Fox Nation, the network’s streaming service, on November 1.

 

 

Clips hint that the film compares the prosecution of Capitol protesters and anyone associated with the events of January 6 to the initial war on terror, a wholly legitimate comparison that my reporting confirms. For example, as I explained in April, Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines issued a report earlier this year warning “domestic violent extremists” pose a heightened threat to the nation. Not one for subtlety, Haines included a sketch of the U.S. Capitol in the document; House Republicans at the time blasted Haines for working outside her legal authority—the intelligence community is supposed to hunt foreign terrorists, not MAGA-supporting meemaws—to target American citizens.

Unfortunately, most Americans are unaware that the Biden regime, with a big assist from the news media, is indeed conducting a domestic war on terror aimed at the political Right. 

Democrats do not want the public to hear the details of Ashli Babbitt’s shooting death at the hands of Capitol Police, or the likely role of the FBI in what happened that day, or how armed federal agents have raided Trump supporters’ homes at dawn, in front of their terrified children and horrified neighbors, and dragged out in handcuffs to face various trespassing misdemeanors.

Democrats do not want the public to know about an inhumane jail in the nation’s capital used exclusively to punish Trump supporters, who have been denied any chance at bail by ruthless government prosecutors and hostile Beltway judges. Abusive conduct by Capitol and D.C. Metro Police officers, which included attacking the crowd with flashbangs, rubber bullets, and copious amounts of mace and other chemicals, must be kept under wraps. So, too, must at least 14,000 hours of surveillance footage captured by security cameras on January 6.

Which is why the collective freak-out over the 84-second trailer was fast and furious. Journalists and lawmakers who haven’t yet seen the full documentary nonetheless convulsed into hyper-spin mode.

Philip Bump, a national correspondent for the Washington Post, immediately banged out a 1,200-word diatribe about a film he has never watched. Carlson made the movie, Bump concluded, to “prove he’s not a white nationalist,” whatever that’s supposed to mean.

Bump ironically condemns the unseen documentary as an “angry muddle” while making his own angry muddle against Carlson, Fox News, January 6 protesters and a few people highlighted in the trailer, including Revolver’s Darren Beattie, the man who blew the lid off possible FBI involvement in the chaos.

“Carlson wants to elevate the idea—the surreal idea, the deranged idea—that the riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6 was fomented in whole or in part by the government so that it could crack down on the political right,” Bump sneered.

Now, I would far exceed my already generous word limit here by detailing all the “surreal” and “deranged” ideas the Washington Post has promoted over the past few years alone. Nicholas Sandmann, Brett Kavanaugh, and Carter Page—to name just a few—undoubtedly would jump at the chance to show Bump thousands of clippings to prove the Post, and not Tucker Carlson, is a top purveyor of outlandish conspiracy theories.

Speaking of deranged, Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), the daughter of one of the architects of the first war on terror, took to social media to give her opinion on a film she has not watched, either. “It appears that @FoxNews is giving @TuckerCarlson a platform to spread the same type of lies that provoked violence on January 6,” Cheney tweeted Thursday morning. “As @FoxNews knows, the election wasn’t stolen and January 6 was not a ‘false flag’ operation.” She then tagged Fox News honchos including Rupert Murdoch and Paul Ryan to make sure they saw her tattle-tweet.

Cheney was soon joined by Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), her Republican colleague on the January 6 select committee. Kinzinger, who cried after the testimony of four police officers during a July hearing, echoed Cheney’s outrage. “Anyone working for @FoxNews must speak out.  This is disgusting. It appears @foxnews isn’t even pretending anymore,” he tweeted about a film he also hasn’t seen.

Accusing Carlson of promoting “cop killers,” a flat-out lie since no police officer died as a result of the protest on January 6, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) revealed that Officer Michael Fanone was “pissed,” which seems to be nothing out of the ordinary for the D.C. cop who graced the front page of Time magazine a few months ago and does little else but visit cable news shows to explain why he is pissed off that particular day. “RT if Tucker should talk to the heroes of Jan. 6, not just the terrorists,” Swalwell tweeted.

One of Carlson’s Fox News colleagues, Geraldo Rivera, lashed out on Twitter, mocking Carlson’s suggestion that January 6 was a false flag operation. “Tucker’s wonderful, he’s provocative, he’s original, but man oh man,” Rivera told a New York Times reporter on Thursday. “There are some things that you say that are more inflammatory and outrageous and uncorroborated. And I worry that—and I’m probably going to get in trouble for this—but I’m wondering how much is done to provoke, rather than illuminate.”

Rivera continued. “Messing around with Jan. 6 stuff . . . the record to me is pretty damn clear, that there was a riot that was incited and encouraged and unleashed by Donald Trump.”

And therein lies the real controversy about Carlson’s documentary. The original narrative about January 6—it was an armed insurrection carried out by white supremacist militias at the behest of Donald Trump over the “Big Lie” of election fraud leading to the deaths of police officers while nearly toppling our democracy—is not to be disturbed no matter how many facets of that original narrative have been shattered.

Further, any suggestion that the FBI, a corrupt, partisan agency with a proven track record of acting at the behest of Democratic Party interests, was at all instrumental in what happened that day, or instigating the violence ahead of time, is strictly verboten. Never mind that even the New York Times reported that FBI informants were working with members of the Proud Boys before and during January 6 or the numerous questions raised by Beattie or the jaw-dropping revelations of the FBI’s key role in the plot to “kidnap” Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer last year—no questions allowed.

Next thing you know, the media will accuse January 6 skeptics of promoting “Russian disinformation.”

In fact, this all feels like the lead-up to the release of the Nunes memo, the 2018 document that connected the Steele dossier to the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign through Fusion GPS and confirmed the dossier served as the basis for four FISA warrants on the Trump campaign. Before Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) issued the report, over the objection of Republicans such as Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham along with FBI Director Christopher Wray, the media was apoplectic.

Nunes was accused of everything from acting as a Russian stooge to being a traitor and a dunce. How dare a sitting congressman go to “war” with the FBI? “The latest attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests—no party’s, no president’s, only Putin’s,” McCain tweeted on the day Nunes’ memo was released.

Nunes, of course, was proven right. I suspect Carlson’s documentary will act as the January 6 version of the Nunes memo. And the reason why the people who peddled Russiagate are the same people losing their minds over an unseen documentary on January 6 isn’t that they don’t know what the film will show—it is rather that they know exactly what it will show. McCain and company fought the release of the Nunes memo for the same reason.

On November 1, no matter how hard they’re trying to keep the truth concealed, the public can start to see for themselves.

The writer of Tucker Carlson’s controversial documentary series on the Jan. 6 Capitol riot previously directed films made by far-right figures, including a leading promoter of the Pizzagate conspiracy theory, a virulent anti-refugee activist, and an alt-right comic book writer whose lead superhero’s outfit resembles a Confederate flag.

Los Angeles-based filmmaker Scooter Downey will likely reach his biggest stage yet on Monday, when Fox Nation plans to air the first part of Carlson’s three-part Patriot Purge movie. A series trailer, which aired Wednesday evening on Fox News, included the false claim that the riot was a “false flag” meant to attack conservatives. The series also appeared to include a sympathetic interview with Ali Alexander, who has been subpoenaed by the Jan. 6 Select Committee for his role in organizing a pro-Trump rally in front of Congress that eventually turned violent.

Carlson’s series has already sparked backlash, with fellow Fox News mainstay Geraldo Rivera calling his colleague’s promotion of false conspiracy theories about the riot “bullshit.” But Downey’s role in the Fox production, and his past working for conspiracy theorists and hate figures, has gone thus far undiscussed.

Downey and Carlson share writing credit for the documentary series, according to a screenshot the filmmaker posted on Twitter. It’s not clear whether Downey also directed Patriot Purge, but he has retweeted messages from other right-wing figures suggesting he played a lead role in the series’ creation.

In a post on social-media app Telegram, Alexander wrote that he was excited to “see what Tucker Carlson and Scooter Downey have produced.” And Downey’s Twitter bio and banner images boast of his work as producer for “Tucker Carlson Originals.”

Fox News and Downey did not respond to requests for comment on this story.

Prior to Patriot Purge, Downey was perhaps best known on the right as co-director of Hoaxed, a 2019 documentary from far-right figure Mike Cernovich about alleged media bias against the MAGA movement. Cernovich rose to prominence on the far-right by promoting the baseless Pizzagate conspiracy theory, which held that Hillary Clinton operated a pedophile sex dungeon out of a D.C. pizzeria. In Dec. 2016, the Pizzagate frenzy inspired a North Carolina man to fire a gun inside the restaurant.

And last year Downey directed another documentary, this time for anti-refugee activist Lauren Southern, a Canadian alt-right figure perhaps best known for teaming up with far-right European activists to interfere with and attempt to thwart a ship rescuing refugees in the Mediterranean Sea.

Crossfire, the documentary Downey created with Southern, centered on the Black Lives Matter movement and the protests and violence that occurred after the police murder of George Floyd last summer. Like Hoaxed, the documentary consisted mostly of interviews with prominent right-wing figures like Cernovich.

Downey also directed Rebel’s Run, an upcoming live-action based on a right-wing comic book from blogger Theodore Robert Beale, who goes by the name “Vox Day” online.

Beale writes comic books, including a series called Alt-Hero, that are meant to push back on what he and his fans perceive as a “social justice warrior” infiltration of the comic book industry. Rebel’s Run stars a superhero named “Rebel,” whose outfit is modeled on the Confederate flag. The film’s plot will pit her against villains who are carrying out a “global crackdown on hate,” according to a trailer. A crowdfunding page for the film claims it has raised more than $940,000.

Beale, who has called himself an “alt right nationalist,” is perhaps better known for his attacks on women and support for white nationalism. In a 2016 blog post, for example, Beale wrote that “Western civilization” rests on “white tribalism, white separatism, and especially white Christian masculine rule.”

On Wednesday, a conservative internet personality who goes by the name “Some Bitch I Know” wrote in a post on far-right social media network Gab that she helped collect footage for Carlson’s documentary.

And in a comment under her post, Downey made a prediction about the series’ reception: “It will melt some minds,” he wrote.

Business Insider

Capitol-riot defendant calls for Trump to be 'ostracized from any political future' and says January 6 was a 'disgrace'

 

A Capitol-riot suspect from Buffalo, New York, who's been indicted on a number of charges related to the January 6 attack wrote a letter to a judge criticizing former President Donald Trump.

Thomas Sibick is accused of assaulting Metropolitan Police Officer Michael Fanone. In his letter to Judge Amy Berman Jackson, Sibick wrote that Trump "is not a leader and should be ostracized from any political future, what he honestly needs to do is go away!"

The deadly January 6 insurrection was a "disgrace to our nation that left a scar Trump is ultimately responsible for," Sibick wrote.

"The shame, dishonor, and regret endured are without question the worst emotions ever experienced," he added. "I disagree with what occurred that fateful day, especially the trauma suffered by Officer Michael Fanone, it is without question unconscionable."

I saw that. I wonder what kind of re-education and plea deal was necessary for a public repentance like that.

The Trump-iest congresswoman of them all now claims she was a victim of the Capitol riot.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, who staunchly backed ex-President Donald Trump’s effort to overturn his election loss, said Tuesday that the mob of Trump’s own supporters were actually gunning for “ALL of us” when they stormed the Capitol building

The Georgia Republican claimed the rioters, who sought to prevent Congress from certifying President Biden’s win, actually “RUINED” Trump’s plan to overturn the election.

I'm sure the FBI and CIA have operatives inside of organizations that sponsored and participated in the 1/6 insurrection attempt. That would be nothing new considering our country's history. I also don't have a problem with our government infiltrating hate/terrorist groups.

Did the media sensationalize an attempt at overthrowing a democratically elected president? Um no. That's kind of a big deal. The MSM, as in FOX "news" has been downplaying 1/6 from the start. This is more propaganda for the plebs like you to gobble up.
