They just made a big mistake.
According to Breitbart News, CNN anchor Brianna Keilar attacked Fox News host Tucker Carlson for his report on the recent capitol riot.
Keilar said, “The attack on the nation’s Capitol was a deadly uprising. It was a violent riot, and it was an insurrection. It was sedition. It was incited by the president calling his supporters to action. … So, let’s call it what it is, something that some people are having a harder time with than others, like this guy on planet Fox.”
Keilar then said, “It was an insurrection. Take Merriam-Webster’s word for it. Insurrection; an act or instance of revolting against civil authority or an established government.”
She continued that the rioters “are people who have renounced allegiance to their government, should it not be helmed by Donald Trump, knocking down barriers, knocking down gates, pushing police out of the way. Police would be the civil authority as described in the definition of insurrection. They broke windows and doors. They vandalized offices. The perpetrators forced members of Congress to take cover in fear of their lives. Those lawmakers are the ‘civil authority’ and the established government, as the dictionary states, that they are revolting against.”
Keilar added, “So, it’s interesting that when the crowd, in this case, is full of almost entirely white Trump-supporting rioters, Fox’s Tucker Carlson described it as a ‘political protest that got…out of control,’ especially when this is how he described Black Lives Matter protests and looting this past summer after the death of George Floyd.” You can read the full article here.
