In his “Tucker on Twitter” show debut, former Fox News host Tucker Carlson raised controversial questions on a series of topics, including Ukraine, Russia, the American media, and even extraterrestrial life.
He kicked off the episode by scrutinizing the recent disaster at the Caco Dam in southern Ukraine.
Carlson questioned, “The question is, who did it?” alluding to the possibility of Ukraine being the perpetrator of the dam’s destruction rather than Russia.
His argument rested on the strategic disadvantage this disaster poses to Russia.
“The Nova Kakhovka dam was effectively Russian… Blowing up the dam may be bad for Ukraine, but it hurts Russia more, and for precisely that reason, the Ukrainian government has considered destroying it,” he stated.
Carlson recalled past incidents, saying, “They blew up Nord Stream, the Russian natural gas pipeline last fall, and in fact, the Ukrainians did do that.”
In light of these incidents, he denounced the mainstream media’s immediate blaming of Russia.
“The American media… wasted no time this morning in accusing the Russians of sabotaging their own infrastructure… Putin did it. Putin did it. And the reasoning was simple,” he mimicked.
He attacked the media’s portrayal of Ukraine’s leader, Volodymyr Zelensky, as a hero-like figure.
Carlson described Zelensky in less flattering terms, “Sweaty and rat-like… a friend of BlackRock,” but noted the media narrative, “Mr. Zelensky is a very good man… our generation’s Winston Churchill.”
He pointed out the apparent hypocrisy in Senator Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) apparent affinity for Zelensky, sarcastically referring to a conversation between the two as a celebration of Russian casualties.
Carlson criticized Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley’s stance on Ukraine, mocking her recent CNN interview assertion that “a win for Ukraine is a win for all of us.”
He sarcastically translated this as, “It is vitally important for you to support Ukraine because it’s necessary for Ukraine to be supported by you. Your support is mandatory until it’s finished, whatever it is, and whatever that means.”
Taking a tangent, Carlson brought attention to a whistleblower’s revelations about the U.S. government possessing physical evidence of crashed non-human-made aircraft, otherwise known as UFOs.
He claimed that this groundbreaking news is being ignored by mainstream media outlets like The Washington Post and The New York Times.
He emphasized, “UFOs are actually real and apparently so is extraterrestrial life. Now, we know in a normal country this news would qualify as a bombshell, the story of the millennium, but in our country, it doesn’t.”
Further criticizing the media and its role in shaping public discourse, Carlson expressed concern about the suppression of essential information, asserting, “A small group of people control access to all relevant information and the rest of us don’t know.”
He posed several questions, “What’s happened to the hundreds of billions of U.S. dollars we’ve sent to Ukraine?… How did Jeffrey Epstein make all that money? How did he die?”
Drawing parallels to the Soviet era, Carlson expressed his concern over the American public’s lack of knowledge about key global and national issues.
He concluded, “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.”
“By definition, that is not a democracy yet,” he asserted.
Carlson continues to provoke and challenge mainstream narratives, inviting viewers to question the information presented to them.
