Many of the hosts on Fox News have begun to gaslight their viewers about the January 6th insurrection. Chief among them is Tucker Carlson.The network has gone as far as allowing the controversial host to air a special where he claimed the riots were a false flag operation. So it is no surprise that Carlson is irate at Lindsey Graham for wanting the insurrectionists to be shot.
A recent expose from the Washington Post quoted Graham as asking the Senate Sergeant at Arms, “What are you doing? Take back the Senate! You’ve got guns. Use them. We give you guns for a reason. Use them.”
Carlson began, “On Jan. 6, Lindsey Graham was running around the Capitol ordering the Capitol Police to murder the protesters. ‘You’ve got guns, use them! We give you guns for a reason,’ shrieked Lindsey Graham.”

The Fox host continued,
“Shoot American citizens for the crime of trespassing? Really? This is the conservative position?Unarmed protesters show up … look, they shouldn’t have been there. We never defended that and never would. But kill them? What the hell is wrong with you, Lindsey Graham? How long before you’re ordering drone attacks on people whose politics you don’t like?”
