Watch Tucker Carlson’s Insane Accusation that Stephen Colbert’s Staff ‘Committed Insurrection’

Holy Shih Tzu! When Fox News Senior Bullshucking correspondent, Tucker Carlson, devolves into unbridled hysteria he really holds nothing back. And on Friday night he was so incensed by late breaking news that he interrupted his regularly scheduled schizophonic schtick to report on a matter that would surely alter the course of humanity.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Bullshit Factory

As usual for Fox “News,” they were regurgitating a story that they picked up other from credible news organizations. Fox doesn’t actually do journalism. The story that titillated Tucker on this occasion was one that has international consequences. ABC News reported that several staffers for Stephen Colbert’s Late Show on CBS had been arrested for being in a congressional office building without proper authorization:

“In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS said the production team was at the Capitol Wednesday and Thursday to record a comedy segment featuring Triumph [the Insult Comic Dog].

“‘Their interviews at the Capitol were authorized and pre-arranged through Congressional aides of the members interviewed,’ the network said. ‘After leaving the members’ offices on their last interview of the day, the production team stayed to film stand-ups and other final comedy elements in the halls when they were detained by Capitol Police.'”

So this was essentially a case of having stayed beyond the period of time that had been previously approved. But to Tucker Carlson it was the same sort of domestic terrorism that was committed by Donald Trump’s shock troops on January 6, 2021. Carlson raged that…

“This is almost beyond belief, but just before this show aired we learned that last night producers for Stephen Colbert’s show on CBS committed insurrection at the United States Capitol. Adam Schiff, the congressman from California who spent the last year and a half telling you that unauthorized violations of Capitol space are a coup – Adam Schiff illegally gave producers from CBS access to the Capitol.

Then the group, which includes the show’s senior producer, director, comedian and writer, remained in the Longworth House office building after hours. And the point of them being there was for them to harass sitting members of congress. […] It’s exactly like what happened on January 6th, So, we’ll take a close look at what the punishments are.””

WOW! that is one heck of a deranged outburst, even for Carlson who is known for them. For him to equate what these seven comedy professionals were doing with the deadly insurrection by hundreds of hostile thugs incited by Trump is spectacularly preposterous. Colbert’s crew did not break through barricades and, in the process, injure more than 140 police officers, five of whom died. They did not shatter windows or bust through locked doors. They never threatened to kill or hang anyone. They didn’t vandalize the premises causing $30 million dollars in damages.

Carlson’s tirade also accused Rep. Adam Schiff of “illegally” giving producers from CBS access to the Capitol. That’s a lie. Carlson claimed that the purpose of the visit was “to harass sitting members of congress.” That, too, is a lie. The only thing that Carlson accomplished with his histrionics is to reveal that he doesn’t know the difference between a violent insurrection and a harmless overstay of a permitted visit by a few funny people.

Then again, it is never Carlson’s intent to provide honest accounts of anything. He is always focused on spreading disinformation that advances his ultra-rightist agenda. And this harangue is no exception. It’s his way of belittling the actual insurrection on January 6th, which he has previously tried to pass off as a pleasant tourist outing where “not a lot happened.” He works overtime to disinform his already dimwitted viewers with blatant falsehoods covering a wide array of subjects. For example…

There’s much more where that came from. But listing every asinine thing Carlson has said would break the Internet. It will be fun to see what Colbert has to say about this on Monday.

UPDATE: As expected, on Monday Colbert had something to say about Carlson’s ludicrous blathering. See Colbert’s response, as well as another excretion of absolute idiocy by Carlson…

  1. 1st of all, this was a planned visit to interview certain members of Congress arranged & approved. The fact that they lingered afterwards, filming a couple connecting scenes with the puppet is like any visitor lingering on their way out. To even suggest a comparison to the violent invasion of the Capitol on 1-6-21 is to belittle the danger, injuries & deaths caused by the true 1-6-21 insurrectionists. How dare he! I’m sure that, had *ucker been there on that day, he’d have pissed his pants & been 1st to run out of there, screaming for his momma!
    But the big problem I gave with his total bullshit version is that, there are now millions of viewers (& whonever they told it to) who don’t know the truth & believe that crock of lies *ucker spewed is for real! And why? Because they think they saw it on “the news”. But it’s FauxNotNews…home of lies & disinformation, where the truth is NOT a welcome visitor!
    We cannot continue as a free country when 3+million people, every night, see/hear such flagrant lying & THINK they’ve watched “the news”. All they’ve been told are the calculated lies fed to them by the most dishonest network on TV.

  2. Carlson is such a wack job – please … you’re wasting my time! NEXT!

  3. Tucker is such a Wack job. He must lie in his sleep. What an awful human being! To just make up things as he goes along. I’ll bet he got beat up a lot when he was a kid. There are no sufficient words to describe a loathsome
    semi human like him. Maybe someday he will be on a plane with George Foreman and say the wrong thing. Would be great to see that arrogant face punched in…..
