Whoopi Goldberg Brutally Attacks Tucker Carlson For Airing January 6 Footage
Whoopi Goldberg went off on Tucker Carlson after he aired surveillance footage from the January 6 Capitol riots.
Whoopi Goldberg launched an attack on Tucker Carlson on Tuesday morning’s episode of “The View” after the Fox News host dared to play surveillance footage of what actually took place during the January 6 riots at the Capitol.

Goldberg Attacks Carlson
Daily Mail reported that during his show on Monday night, Carlson shared footage that he claimed proved that the “overwhelming majority” of people who took part in the Capitol riots on January 6, 2021 “were peaceful, they were orderly and meek.”
“These were not insurrectionists, they were sightseers,” he added.
This didn’t sit well with Goldberg, who bizarrely claimed that Carlson “took a page from George Orwell’s ‘1984’” by airing the footage.
“We all saw the violent Capitol insurrection play out on live TV back on January 6 2021,” she said. “I don’t think anybody thought it was a TV show, I don’t think anybody was not sure what they were looking at.”

“‘Last night, Tucker Carlson took a page from George Orwell’s ‘1984’ and told his viewers to reject the evidence of their eyes and ears,” she continued.
After showing a snippet of what Carlson had to say, Goldberg proceeded to double down.
“I don’t know what he’s playing at, but people saw what they saw,” she stated. “They saw what they saw and they’ve seen what’s gone down with it. And no matter what, you can’t put this monkey back in the cage. You can’t.”
“This was insurrection and just was what it was, so people are very upset,” she added. “His viewers, maybe they’re going to buy it, I don’t know.”
TUCKER CARLSON DESCRIBES JAN. 6 AS "MOSTLY PEACEFUL CHAOS": #TheView co-hosts weigh in after the Fox News host attempted to reframe the Jan. 6 insurrection as a parade of patriots on a sightseeing trip to the Capitol. https://t.co/cVclFZQU98 pic.twitter.com/et27FAuZBd

Carlson was given 40,000 hours of footage from the Capitol surrounding the riots by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who claimed that he made this move out of transparency, according to The Mail.
Trump responded to Carlson airing the footage by applauding the Fox News host before calling for those who served on the committee that claimed to be investigating the January 6 riots to be charged with treason.
“The Unselect Committee of political Hacks & Thugs has been totally discredited,” Trump said. “They knowingly refused to show the Videos that mattered. They should be tried for Fraud and Treason, and those imprisoned and being persecuted should be exonerated and released, NOW.”

Capitol Police Officer Speaks Out
Last night, Carlson interviewed Tarik Johnson, a 22-year veteran on the Capitol Hill force who was ignored by the House Jan. 6 Select Committee despite being on the scene on that day.
“My voice is one of the first ones you hear on the audio transmission, so I did expect to get an interview sometime, but it didn’t happen.” Johnson, who voted for Joe Biden, told the Fox News host. “I guess the focus was on Donald Trump.”
When asked why the protesters were at the Capitol, Johnson replied, “I think that some people there had planned on being violent, some people may have turned violent after what they were going through.”
“I think that people wanted to support their president, they wanted to- some of those people wanted just to support him,” he continued. “And some of those people didn’t commit violence and some of those people didn’t plan on it.”
After nobody responded to his calls to evacuate the Senate on J6, Tarik Johnson was fired for being pictured in a MAGA hat, lost his pension, and was never called to testify before the J6 Committee. Nancy Pelosi then appointed his superior to Acting Chief of Capitol Police. pic.twitter.com/s3kO0XGY5m

Goldberg and the rest of the liberal media have been obsessed with talking about January 6 for years now, so it says a lot that they have a problem with actual surveillance footage from that day being played on television. Goldberg can attack Carlson all that she wants to, but we applaud him for trying to get to get the truth out there.
