Arguing the Biden administration is engaging in a political persecution against conservatives, prominent Fox News personality Tucker Carlson last week named a bevy of “political dissidents” who he said have been targeted by the federal officials in the past 18 months.
Speaking from the presidential palace in Brazil, where Carlson had met with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, the popular conservative talk-show host argued that the Biden administration is engaged in the “criminalizing of American politics” in a manner reminiscent of Latin American countries where people are “routinely” imprisoned “when they lose elections.”
Calling the Democrat-led January 6 Committee a “farce” and a “show trial,” Carlson argued that the “absurdity” and “hollowness” of the committee “sends the message, ‘We run the justice system now. You are powerless.’”
“And that is the same message the Biden administration has sent to America for the last year-and-a-half, with the help of Merrick Garland,” he said.
