The protests and riots that transpired at the nation’s capital on Wednesday will be costly to all Americans, according to Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
According to Breitbart, Carlson told viewers that the “storming” of Congress will ultimately do much damage:
What happened today will be used by the people taking power to justify stripping you of the rights were born with as an American. Your right to speak without being censored, your right to assemble, to not be spied upon, to make a living, to defend your family, most critically.
These are the most basic and ancient freedoms that we have. They are why we live here in the first place. They’re why we are proud to be Americans. They are what make us different, and they are all now in peril. When thousands of your countrymen storm the Capitol building, you don’t have to like it. We don’t.
But while Carlson clearly condemned the violence, he also said we should not fail to pause and learn.
“You can be horrified by the violence, and as we said and we will say it again, we are horrified. It’s wrong. But if you don’t bother to pause and learn a single thing from it, from your citizens storming your Capitol building, then you’re a fool,” Carlson remarked. “You lack wisdom and you lack self-awareness. You have no place running a country. We got to this sad, chaotic day for a reason. It is not your fault. It is their fault.”
