Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson released the first episode of his new show on Twitter on Tuesday and used most of his time to attack the narratives of those who support the Ukrainian war against Russian invasion.
Carlson parted ways with Fox News soon after the cable news network settled a lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems for $787.5 million. His show was the most popular cable news network show for several years, and Fox News has suffered greatly in ratings since his departure.
He has since accused Fox News of breach of contract and fraud in relation to the circumstances of his departure.
Carlson used his first Twitter show to attack Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and the Republicans who have supported the U.S. sending money and military supplies to the nation. He connected the media’s support for the war with a report that the U.S. had covered up an incident in which an extraterrestrial UFO was allegedly recovered.
At the end of the 10-minute video, Carlson compared Americans to the Russians who were living in ignorance and propagandized under the former Soviet Union.
“We’re the ones who live in ignorance now. The U.S. government has managed to classify more than a billion so-called public documents. So at this point, we can’t possibly know what our leaders are doing. We’re not allowed to know,” said Carlson.
“By definition, that is not a democracy,” he declared.
“Yet it’s fine with the media. Secrecy is a powerful tool of control. ‘Stop asking how we got so rich! Here’s another story about racism! Go eat each other!’ That’s the program. That’s how most of us live here in the United States, manipulated by lies, silenced by taboos,” Carlson continued.
“It is unhealthy, and it is dehumanizing, and we’re tired of it,” he added.
“As of today, we’ve come to Twitter, which we hope will be the short-wave radio under the blankets. We’re told there’s no gatekeepers here. If that turns out to be false, we’ll leave. But in the meantime, we are grateful to be here,” said Carlson.
“We’ll be back with much more very soon,” he concluded.
