Tucker Carlson is one of the most popular pundits in TV history. But the liberal media can’t stand him.
Part of the reason is obvious: he calls them out on their lies, hypocrisy and constant progressive propaganda.
Now CNN is hitting back at Tucker, with host Brianna Keilar going on a rant blaming Tucker for Wednesday’s storming of Capitol Hill and calling Tucker a “parasite” and “liar.”
What Did Keilar Say?
In her remarks Keilar basically said Tucker has stoked anger at the system and gotten people killed.
“The only reason this country is rich and successful is because, for hundreds of years, we’ve enjoyed a stable political system. And the only reason that system is stable is because it’s a democracy. It responds to voters. Democracy is our pressure-release valve. As long as people sincerely believe they can change things by voting, they stay calm,” Keilar said.
“They talk, and they organize, and they vote. But…if people begin to believe that their democracy is fraudulent — if they conclude that voting is a charade, the system is rigged, and it’s run in secret by a small group of powerful, dishonest people who are acting in their own interests — then God knows what could happen. Actually, we do know what could happen. It’s happening right now.”

Keilar sounds like a loudmouthed college gender studies major here. Her little prim and proper view of democracy is nonsense and she wouldn’t be able to hold up a candle to Tucker Carlson’s understanding and insights on the problems facing America.
Tucker Slams CNN
Keilar’s remarks were hitting back at Tucker for comments he made about CNN on his show on Thursday night. Angry at CNN for its obsessive hate of Trump and Trump supporters, Tucker pointed out that the network has “unveiled a Soviet-style enemies list to make it a little easier to find all those Trump supporters and then destroy them.”
Tucker also pointed out that the riots at the Capitol are not something you can blame all Trump supporters for after a small part of them got out of control. He took issue with networks like CNN calling it an “insurrection.”
“The insurrection at the U.S. Capitol? It wasn’t insurrection. It was a political protest that got completely out of control, as we said before, because the President recklessly encouraged it, and that is wrong. But it was not an insurrection,” Tucker said.
Keilar mocked Tucker for saying it wasn’t an insurrection, noting that some of those who stormed the Capitol were armed and other weapons were found on the Capitol grounds.
According to Keilar, Tucker is “having a hard time” understanding what an insurrection is, but the dictionary definition and photos show that it was.
“Don’t take his word for it. Don’t take mine. It was an insurrection. Take Merriam-Webster’s word for it. Since this guy pretends not to understand big words in a truthful context, let’s use pictures.”
Keilar Goes Further: Tucker is Wrong About Racism and America as a Whole
Keilar’s rant didn’t end there. She also slammed Tucker for not admitting that white privilege is real and denying systemic racism, saying that if most of those storming the Capitol on Wednesday had been black the death toll would have been much higher.
“He is part of the illness, a propagandist, a liar, a parasite,” Keilar said.
Perhaps she should have been looking at a mirror when she spoke those words. She’d best believe that Tucker Carlson is far from the only one who has reached his last nerve with the lies, defamations, hatred and propaganda of the progressive media.
