Just when it appears that Fox News host Tucker Carlson can't reach a new low, he proves everyone wrong. Last evening on his show which is called, I believe, "Tucker's White Power Hour," he promoted the theory that the FBI was actually behind the January 6th insurrection.
Carlson's proof? Well, awhile back FBI director Christopher Wray, understandably, did not want to answer questions from members of Congress about possible cover operations the law enforcement agency is using to investigate and infiltrate those far-right groups. Carson references this reluctance as well as that many of the indictments against the January 6th insurrectionists mention "unindicted co-conspirators." In laying out the evidence, Carlson interviews a "journalist" from Revolver News and then introduces a video clip from Russian President Vladimir Putin. After all, who better to prove your theory than the statement of a murderous dictator who is a former KGB agent? Carlson concludes the piece reiterating that it was actually the FBI that was behind the insurrection. Yes, not only were FBI agents embedded in these alleged domestic terror groups, Carlson apparently thinks they also obtained leadership positions which they then used to organize and lead the January 6th insurrection. All to make Donald Trump look bad!
If you're playing at home, in your program where it says "ANTIFA" or "BLM" was responsible for the January 6th insurrection, cross that out and write "FBI."
Trumpers love police officers, well unless those officers are from FBI, the Capitol Police, the DC police, or any other law enforcement agency that arrests violent right-wing extremists. Trumpers definitely love police officers when they are cracking the heads of those ANTIFA goons. MAGA!
(As a side note, 21 House Republicans voted against honoring Capitol Police officers who engaged in hand-to-hand combat to stop the, often, armed insurrectionists who had breached the Capitol and were endangering the lives of members of Congress, including those 21 House Republicans. Fortunately no Hoosier GOP members of Congress, not even Jim Banks, were crazy enough to vote against the resolution.)
It didn't take long for MAGA world to take up and begin amplifying Carlson's new conspiracy theory that the FBI was responsible for the January 6th insurrection.
This is common sense. The most obvious clue that the DOJ was behind January 6th were the pipe bombs that were dropped off the night before by an anonymous person who the FBI claims to still be searching for.
Entirely implausible they do not know who dropped off bombs near the WH

Patriots, remember that the lesson from @TuckerCarlson tonight is the loudmouth in your group urging you to do illegal stuff is probably working for the FBI and seeking to entrap you.— Kurt Schlichter (@KurtSchlichter) June 16, 2021
