The former Fox News host Tucker Carlson launched the first episode on Twitter of his new show Tuesday, and spent most of his time attacking the narratives that those who support Ukrainian war against Russian invasion.
Carlson left Fox News shortly after the cable network settled with Dominion Voting Systems a lawsuit for $787,5 million. Since his departure, Fox News’ ratings have suffered a great deal. His show had been the most popular cable network show in recent years.
Since then, he has accused Fox News in relation to his departure of fraud and breach of contract.
Carlson attacked the Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy, and Republicans who supported the U.S. in sending money and supplies to Ukraine. He linked the media’s support of the war to a report that claimed the U.S. covered up a UFO incident.
Carlson, at the end of a 10-minute video, compared Americans with Russians who lived in ignorance under the Soviet Union and were propagandized.
“We are the ones living in ignorance today. The U.S. Government has classified more than one billion “public documents”. At this point, it is impossible to know what our leaders do. Carlson said, “We’re not allowed know.”
He declared, “By definition that’s not a democratic system.”
“Yet, it’s all right with the media.” Secrets are a powerful control tool. Stop asking us how we became so wealthy! Another story about racism “Go eat one another!” This is the plan. “That’s the way most Americans live, manipulated by falsehoods, silenced by taboos,” Carlson said.
He added, “It’s unhealthy and dehumanizing. We’re tired of this.”
“As from today, we have come to Twitter. We hope that it will be the shortwave radio underneath the blankets. There are no gatekeepers, we’re told. We’ll leave if that turns out not to be true. Carlson said, “We are grateful for the time being.
He concluded, “We will be back very soon with more.”
