    Default far right rushes to embrace Tucker Carlson’s FBI-Capitol riot conspiracy theory

    Screwy Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.) rose to speak on the floor of the House on Thursday, a sheaf of news articles in his hand and the spirit of a Breitbart commenter in his heart.

    There’s been so much appropriate concern about January 6,” Gohmert said. “What happened that day. Unfortunately, we don’t know all that happened that day. There are some major, major questions that need to be answered.”

    Among them? A report that had been elevated the night prior by Gohmert’s “friend,” Fox News host Tucker Carlson: that perhaps a significant part of the violence that day was spurred by FBI agents embedded in the crowd.

    “This is scary stuff,” Gohmert said of the sketchy claims made by Carlson. “This is third-world stuff. This is not only third-world stuff but this is like [Russian President Vladimir] Putin kind of activity.”

    The sketchy and quickly debunked claims made by Carlson. The Fox News host was elevating a story written for the website Revolver by a former Trump administration official (later fired for links to white nationalists) arguing that “unindicted co-conspirators” referred to in Justice Department charging documents referred to government law enforcement agents.

    And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment

    The truth is irrelevant. They can sell anything on Fox. They say it, the right buys it. Then they come here and start threads on it.

    i agree...we do need a complete investigation of how it happened, why it happened and how to stop it from ever happening again. but repubs voted against such an investigation.....

    You have any proof whatsoever he's wrong? Who "debunked" them? Certainly not CNN or MSNBC, they've been too focused on Trump to notice something like this...

    Well, that's what you've done so far. Just because you don't like or believe it doesn't make it false.

    First offer the evidence it’s more than right wing bullshit



    You can’t just keep shitting in your own hand and smearing it on paper and asking everyone to prove it’s not a Picasso

    Yes, I can keep doing that. Guno made an opening argument. I want proof on his part before responding to rhetorical nonsense which is all he's posted so far.

    Attacking me instead of offering a cognitive argument based on facts IS ad hominem. You don't know how to debate well do you?

    I don't have to. I haven't made a claim what he said is true. I've only asked guno to prove what Carlson said is false as he, guno, has made that claim. Feel free to help guno on that. But until he, or you, offer proof of your position, I have no need or grounds to submit a rebuttal.

    Because you defend it without proof doesn’t make it valid
