‘I’m probably going to get in trouble for this…’ Geraldo trash-talks Tucker and his 1/6 special to NY Times

Tucker Carlson has been fiercely attacked over his upcoming documentary “Patriot Purge” which threatens to unravel the ball of dishonesty that is the official narrative of what really happened during the January 6 chaos at the U.S. Capitol.

The three-part series will air on the Fox Nation streaming network starting November 1 and, despite not having seen anything but a very brief preview, those with a vested interest in maintaining what was a mostly peaceful protest that has been misleadingly portrayed as an “insurrection” and a coup against the entire U.S. government, are calling for the documentary to be censored and lashing out against Carlson.

One whose feathers were ruffled by the trailer’s suggestion that elements of 1/6 may have been a “false flag” operation was Carlson’s Fox News colleague Geraldo Rivera, the longtime contributor who just inked a new multi-year deal with the network.

Rivera tweeted out a response to Rep. Adam Kinzinger, the anti-Trump fanatic who was hand-picked by Nancy Pelosi as one of the token Republicans on her sham 1/6 committee, a kangaroo court with subpoena power that is just the latest iteration of the long-running witch hunt against the former president and his supporters.

“False flags!?” Bullsh*t,” wrote Rivera in a reply to Kinzinger’s call for Fox News employees to speak out against Carlson.

Rivera also expressed his dismay at the news that Kinzinger would not be running for reelection next year, tweeting that it “Sucks.”

Rivera also took a shot at Carlson in a telephone interview with The New York Times, wrapping his criticism in a cloak of praise.

“Tucker’s wonderful, he’s provocative, he’s original, but — man oh man,” Rivera told the Times. “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.”

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

Rivera declined to say whether he planned to ask his bosses to prevent “Patriot Purge” from being aired.

“I don’t want to go there, that’s not my job.” He added,  “He’s my colleague. He’s my family. Sometimes you have to speak out about your family.”

The suggestion that 1/6 may have been a “false flag” has come after reports that FBI informants may have had a hand in instigating the “riot” that resulted in a brief occupation of the Capitol building on the day when the Electoral College vote was to be certified.

Nothing could be more damaging to the myth of the “insurrection” than if it comes out that the FBI and other governmental authorities had a hand in orchestrating the day’s events which have served as the justification for a domestic war on terror in which the right will be “hunted” by leftist-infested federal institutions, an idea that is suggested in the “Patriot Purge” preview.
