Fox News star Tucker Carlson as soon as once more took intention at frequent Fox News guest Lindsey Graham on Monday night time, this time raging in opposition to the conservative South Carolina senator for reportedly urging Capitol law enforcement officials to shoot Jan. 6 rioters.

In a prolonged and extensively reported investigation into the occasions surrounding the Jan. 6 rebel, The Washington Post revealed that Graham was “irate that senators have been pressured to flee their very own chamber” after the mob breached the U.S. Capitol.

“He yelled on the Senate sergeant-at-arms. ‘What are you doing? Take again the Senate! You’ve obtained weapons. Use them,’ the Submit reported, citing a Republican senator with information of the scenario. “We provide you with weapons for a motive. Use them.”

That didn’t sit nicely with Carlson, who has repeatedly downplayed the Trump-incited riot and just lately filmed a multi-part docuseries titled Patriot Purge that implies the Capitol rebel was a “false flag” operation orchestrated by the federal authorities.

After taking another swipe at Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) for blasting his documentary as spreading the “similar sort of lies” that provoked Jan. 6—calling the Republican lawmaker a “left-wing wacko”—Carlson questioned Graham’s “conservative” bonafides and his place on the riot.

As soon as extra making the absurd claim that The Washington Submit’s 100,000-word Jan. 6 characteristic was a “rebuttal” to his Fox Nation particular, Carlson launched right into a tirade in opposition to Graham, who’s become one of his favorite targets.

“On Jan. 6, Lindsey Graham was operating across the Capitol ordering the Capitol Police to homicide the protesters. ‘You’ve obtained weapons, use them! We provide you with weapons for a motive,’ shrieked Lindsey Graham,” the Fox host exclaimed. “Shoot Americans for the crime of trespassing? Actually? That is the conservative place, unarmed protesters?”

He added: “They shouldn’t have been there, we’ve by no means defended that, and by no means would. However kill them? What the hell is mistaken with you, Lindsey Graham? How lengthy earlier than you’re ordering drone assaults on individuals whose politics you don’t like? What a revealing second that is.”

Whereas Carlson believes the MAGA mob that chanted “Hang Mike Pence” whereas storming the Capitol in an effort to cease Congress from certifying President Joe Biden’s electoral victory shouldn’t have been subjected to violent retaliatory power, he has a unique opinion on Black Lives Matter protesters.

The primetime Fox Information star has been one of the biggest champions of Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who aimed firearms at an unarmed group of protesters as they walked by their home. According to Carlson, the McCloskeys had “no selection” however to brandish weapons at “screaming BLM fanatics” as a result of they have been “violent criminals… getting used as a militia by the Democratic Social gathering to grab energy.”
