Fox News host Tucker Carlson interviewed conservative pundit Candace Owens on his show Monday night, discussing President Biden’s seemingly bottomless anger, frustration, and threats as well as what the January 6th witch hunt portends for Americans.

Carlson kicked it off by asking Owens, “I have to say Biden was elected on the promise that he would calm things down. He had been around, a deal maker. Every time he gives a message, he’s spitting mad. He’s attacking American citizens in terms that are really without precedent and he’s threatening some sort of law enforcement or military response internally. That’s not extremism?”

“It is extremism. By the way, we got no promises really from Joe Biden when he ran because they hid him. He showed up at a couple of car-honking rallies. I think we saw about 12 cars and the camera was always panned in so we had no idea who Joe Biden was,” Owens noted.

“He was sort of ushered into the White House and everyone said don’t ask questions just because of the pandemic. You look at this and see what’s going on in the country and you see them trying to pass the extreme measures they’re taking to pass the voting rights act and you have to finally understand what January 6 was. We looked back a couple of weeks ago and we saw them just flamboyantly saying things that were insane. January 6 was just like 9/11. September 11. Thousands of Americans died. It was just like Pearl Harbor,” she continued.

“All this insane rhetoric and now we can finally put it into perspective. January 6 was a dress rehearsal. It was meant to be a warning shot. It was meant to be a warning shot to patriots, to any individual in America who thinks they are allowed to redress their grievances. To say, look, we’re in control now. There will be no questions asked about what’s fair and what’s not fair. And if you do, we’ll name you, we’ll caricature you and lock you up in federal prison. That dress rehearsal was getting ready for the big event,” Owens asserted.

“The Democrats have no intention of doing anything that’s constitutional. They have proven that all throughout COVID, as you’ve just brought up Muriel Bowser, you can’t move outside without papers. The idea is if you stand up to them and you say this is wrong, that’s what’s going to happen to you. They are not playing by any rules right now and this is serious. You want to talk about a threat to democracy? Everything they do is a threat to our democracy,” she added.

“They are pushing people to the point of craziness. I will say, as almost a style matter, I can’t get over that the people they are maddest at are Americans. With all the threats around the world, every time they talk, their real rage is reserved for people who are born here and pay taxes here, who are citizens here. What is that?” Carlson asked.

“It’s them trying to change fundamentally what America is. Right? This is no longer a country where your vote is meant to mean anything. They are trying to basically turn this into an oligarchy. We’re in power and you’re not. Oh well, boohoo. And what that means is that they have to make it seem as though these people are the enemy and that’s why I say January 6 was a dress rehearsal. When you know people are being locked up in federal prison for simple trespassing charges, being labeled as domestic terrorists,” Owens remarked.

“It extends further than that. Now, today we had some stuff coming out about how the parents who were labeled as domestic terrorists are standing up for their own children saying, ‘I don’t want my children learning this stuff.’ We know that the DOJ was colluding with the Biden administration to get that out. I mean we are facing unprecedented times in this country and I think the majority of Americans understand that and know that and the Democrats know fully well they cannot win elections by playing by the rules. So they have to do this sort of stuff because they have lost the American people,” she added.

“Nobody likes the radicalism that’s going on in the country. Nobody likes the Democratic Party and so they are going to cheat openly by trying to pass rules and to completely ignore the Constitution of the United States,” Owens concluded.

“Yeah, I think most people are maybe unaware. It’s so upsetting, I know my instinct is to turn away. I don’t want to watch this stuff because it’s too much. But I appreciate that you do,” Carlson said ending the segment while voicing the feelings of millions of Americans.
