Tucker Carlson highlights ‘Biden’s Justice Dept imprisoning people for having the wrong thoughts’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson dared to go there during his show on Tuesday, bluntly asserting that Biden’s Justice Department is acting like Orwellian thought police and is imprisoning people for having “wrong thoughts.”

“What’s that sound you hear? Oh, it’s the sound of America getting a little better. You can feel it happening,” Carlson stated, kicking off the segment. “Last night we played you a clip from an unintentionally hilarious MSNBC town hall in which some pompous airhead reporter tries her best to explain to Trump voters why January 6 actually was an insurrection, an insurrection in which only the police had guns inside the Capitol, an insurrection which the police welcomed the insurrectionists inside the building to interact. Quite an insurrection!”

“Of course, the insurrection that went nowhere, where the leader was dressed in Viking horns, eating psilocybin mushrooms. So, we thought it was pretty funny what we didn’t note though, last night was the moment where that airhead reporter claims that a police officer was killed by the mob that day. Now, if you watch television, you’ve heard that line so many times that you may not even notice when people say it anymore. They’ve been saying it constantly for nearly two years,” he pointed out.

Then Carlson went on to highlight the fact that not one police officer died during the protest on January 6. Not one.

“So, the question is, why do they keep telling us that? Well, there’s a reason. There’s always a reason. They’re telling us that likely, so we won’t ask too many questions the next time we read about yet another January 6 protester going to jail. We’ll just think ‘Oh, another cop killer getting what he deserves.’ That’s what they’re hoping you will think, and they’re hoping that because if you knew the truth, if you knew why they’re really going to jail, you’d be very concerned,” he railed.

“And here is the truth: Joe Biden’s Justice Department is imprisoning people for having the wrong thoughts, thoughts that we all imagine were constitutionally protected, as all thoughts are, but don’t take our word for it. That’s just a right-wing talking point on our cable channel. You can read the court filings in January 6 cases over the past year and a half and in virtually every instance, federal prosecutors argue in public that the political views of the defendants, not anything they actually did, not crimes they committed, but instead their personal beliefs, what they think, those beliefs are reason enough to put them behind bars,” Carlson asserted.

He then elaborated with examples of who the left is now calling “extremists.”

“According to Joe Biden’s DOJ, for example, Army veteran Jessica Watkins needed to be detained indefinitely because she had, ‘extremist and violent views regarding how to address what she believed to be a fraudulent election,'” he continued.

“Oh, she was an extremist? It’s a term they never explain, but that apparently is now a crime. So, we decide what extremist means and then we put you in jail for being one. That’s how that works. UCLA student Christian Secor, that was the guy who sat in Mike Pence’s chair on January 6, is now in prison, and he should be in prison, explained the Biden administration’s lawyers, because he had ‘extremist beliefs’ and a ‘history of adhering to extremist ideology.’ Really? Again, you decide what extremist is and then put me in prison for being one,” Carlson stated alluding to the fact that any thought that is not leftist is now considered extremist.

“In the case of Robert Morss, that was the guy who was busted in possession of a Lego set of the Capitol, the DOJ put it this way: ‘It is difficult to fathom a more serious danger to the community’ than someone who tried to ‘abort the certification of a lawful and fair election.’ It’s the one kind of abortion they don’t favor, the aborting of a fair and free election,” he remarked.

Carlson continued by illuminating how the left has declared that if you disagree with the result of the last presidential election, you should be imprisoned and the key should be thrown away even if your only crime is thinking that it was unfair. Free speech and thought be damned.

“In every case, though, the defendant’s real crime was not aborting an election. No. The real crime and the DOJ says it right in the filings, is denying the outcome of the election. It was believing the wrong thing. It was not believing that a senile man who refused to leave his basement during the campaign somehow got more votes than any president in American history. If you refuse to believe that, you’re now a felon. Question the system. and they haul you away. Those are the rules now as hundreds of imprisoned Republicans can personally testify if they could speak. The legal precedent has been established,” he elaborated.

Then he took a jab at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who is now claiming that right-wing extremists will steal the next presidential election, which sounds an awful lot like “pre-emptive election denial.” But somehow that’s not the same as the January 6 protesters and since it is from the left, it’s acceptable.

“…in the considered opinion of the Democratic Party and the DOJ, it’s not election denial when they do it. No, it’s just ‘election-affirming care.’ And there’s been a lot of election-affirming care going around these past few weeks. In Washington in the hometown newspaper owned by Jeff Bezos, the Washington Post, Max Boot just announced that, we’re quoting, ‘If the current trends hold up, Republicans are likely to take over at least the House and quite possibly the Senate, too, along with many state offices. This is how democracies die, both at home and abroad,'” Carlson quoted.

“In other words, if you vote for the wrong person, that’s not democracy, which by the way, unlike a dictatorship, does not always come to the conclusion that you favor. That’s not democracy. That’s the death of democracy. Democracy dies in both darkness and non-liberal election outcomes. Oh. OK,” he snarked.

“Again, just to be clear, Democrats are sending people to prison for questioning the last election, trying to prevent people from getting elected in the midterm election for questioning the last election, while at the very same time telling you that the 2016 election was rigged, the midterm will likely be rigged and we know for a fact the 2024 election is not on the level,” he astutely surmised and then concluded by asking, “How does this work exactly?”

How indeed. It would appear that Democrats only consider elections fair when they win them. If Republicans win, it’s a criminal and imprisonable offense. Evidently, that goes for “thought crimes” as well.
