This week Tucker Carlson announced the premiere of his Fox News produced crocumentary, “Patriot Purge.” And judging by the trailer that he released, it is a cornucopia of conspiracy crackpottery. Carlson is promoting the program as “The True Story Behind January 6.” Which, of course, is a lie. What it is is rancid wingnut code intended to incite further violence.
Carlson’s “propaganda flick” compiles much of what he has said in recent weeks on his primetime Fox News Hour of Ultra-Rightist Rancor into an indigestible pile of manure. His focus is on his baseless accusation that the January 6th insurrection was a “false flag” operation orchestrated by the FBI and other agencies of the mythical “Deep State.”
On Saturday afternoon CNN’s Jim Acosta delivered a scathing review of Carlson’s demagoguery (video below). It was so complete and accurate that it hardly needs any commentary. So without further ado, Acosta said that…
“The reason why federal investigators and millions of Americans are terrified by right-wing violence in this country is because it keeps happening. and Tucker Carlson is inciting more of it. Tucker is calling his propaganda flick “The Patriot Purge!” It’s nothing more than Proud Boy porn. And the worst part is that a major corporation in America, Fox News, is bankrolling it.

“Now Fox is insisting that Tucker’s manifesto will only be seen on its streaming service, Fox Nation. Please. No matter how you slice it the Murdoch family is cashing in as American democracy is being set ablaze. The fact that the Murdoch-run Wall Street Journal just ran a letter to the editor peddling the “Big Lie” again is hardly the worst thing that they’ve done this week. And that’s saying a lot.”
[Fox News pretending that they aren’t responsible for what Carlson does on Fox Nation is precious. Fox Nation is the streaming subsidiary of Fox News. And they are using Carlson’s seditionist sermonizing to drive up subscriptions to the service. What’s more, at least some of Carlson’s “false flag” screed will surely be aired on Fox News]
“As the Anti-Defamation League wrote in a letter to Fox executive chairman and CEO, Lachlan Murdoch, how many more people need to die? My question to the Murdochs is this: Why are you doing this to us? Why are you doing this to America? You came to this country and built a media empire. Isn’t that enough? During Trump you became American State TV. Now you seem like ‘End of America State TV.’ People like to say the Murdochs, ‘Oh, they’re just like that HBO show, Succession.’ Close. It’s more like Secession. The Murdochs and Tucker Carlson, their primetime pyromaniac, appear to be hell bent on dragging this country into a civil war. Jefferson Davis would be proud.”
The only part of Acosta’s monologue that is slightly off base is his assumption that the Murdochs came to the U.S. with intentions of building a media empire and nothing else. The truth is that Rupert Murdoch was a right-wing propagandist in Britain, and in his homeland, Australia, before that. So no, building a media empire in the U.S. would not be enough for him and his family.
If only civil war and secession were what they wanted. But it is clear that they want much more. They do not want a splintered America. They want to rule all of it. And with a puppet seated at the top that they can control. Which explains why they got behind an ignorant, unprincipled, business failure like Donald Trump in the first place.

“Hooray! Mr Acosta!!”
We need more of exactly that on our TV stations. You know, unvarnished, blunt, tell-it-like-it-us truth.
Sure, it will piss-off the bad guys but, as long as you have your facts straight, can back it up, then “who cares?!” They can get mad as they want ~ “prove I’m wrong, or STFU!” ~ that’s all ya’ gotta’ say to their anger at being called out on their vile bullshit!
Why DO these entitled rich snobs hate our people & Country so much that they want to rip us to shreds & destroy what’s good, like liberty & freedom. They sure have enjoyed capitalism, haven’t they? …And they enjoy that “reverse Socialism” – making the richest even richer still, at expense of commonfolk, the people actually doing the work day in & day out. That’s Murdoch & *ucker Carlson too… & the corporate owners of all large media outlets. They’ve given “freedom of the press” some ugly tarnish, by perpetuating dangerous lies as they do.
Why would those who profit so much off the status quo want to destroy it?!? Fear? Stupidity? Feeling immortal perhaps? Maybe they’re just bored with it all – stretching their power nodes to see if anyone will ever stop them? After all, the very wealthy won’t be getting any blood on them! Never do…cowards! They’ll be tucked away in luxury, safe from deadly shit they cause, while those they look down on – us – are in a battle for our lives! Hell, they will prob’ly be placing bets on the outcome of battles. All bets are against us. Too bad so many folks itching to go to war don’t understand that they’re being USED, to entertain the ‘watchers’ & destroy all that gives us a chance at “the good life”, the American Dream. What they have & some born into it. “EZ-peezy lives.”
If we were smarter, we might see that we shouldn’t be fighting against each other, but be unified, fighting against them!
Take a look at photos of Rupert Murdoch over the past 20 years. He looks like the evil emperor in Star Wars, but his face wasn’t made that way by Yoda, it was made by greed, hatred and moral bankruptcy. They eat from within, and eventually become terribly visible from outside. His son/disciple Laughlan should be looking in the mirror for the first signs any day now.
