Greenwald: Lib media is covering for the FBI’s suspected role in the 1/6 Capitol attack because they work together
Last week, Fox News host Tucker Carlson stunned viewers when he revealed details of a Revolver News investigation into charges surrounding individuals allegedly linked to the Jan. 6 protest at the U.S. Capitol Building.
“Without fail, the government has thrown the book at most people who were present in the Capitol on Jan. 6,” Carlson said during his show. “There was a nationwide dragnet to find them. And many of them are still in solitary confinement tonight.”
“But, strangely, some of the key people who participated on Jan. 6 have not been charged. Look at the documents. The government calls those people ‘unindicted co-conspirators.’ What does that mean? Well, it means that in potentially every single case, they were FBI operatives,” he continued.
If he’s right — and at this point, there is little reason to doubt him, given the FBI’s extensive history of entrapping people to bolster arrest stats and send the message to the country that they are in charge, not ‘We The People’ — that means Trump’s own government was involved in setting him and his supporters up for massive persecution coming down from the Biden regime, all in the name of ‘preventing another insurrection attempt.’
So, Tucker Carlson and this website are talking about this and other FBI abuses; why isn’t the so-called “mainstream media?” Where is Chuck Todd? Jake Tapper? Chris Cuomo? Joe Scarborough? Rachel Maddow?
Where is The Washington Post, CNN, The New York Times, USA Today, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, or, for that matter, leading “conservative” outlets?
They are still there, of course; they’re just not going to touch this story. And why? Because the FBI, along with the CIA and other elements of the U.S. intelligence “deep state,” are partnered with the major media to control narratives and spread fear and loathing, just like state and media apparatuses do today in places like China, North Korea and Cuba.
Glenn Greenwald, one of that last true investigative journalists out there — a liberal, at that — explains all of this in a new piece published on Substack.
The lib media “axis,” as he describes it, “are in an angry uproar over a recent report questioning the foreknowledge and involvement of the FBI in the January 6 Capitol riot,” he writes.
“As soon as that new report was published on Monday, a consensus instantly emerged in these liberal media precincts that this is an unhinged, ignorant and insane conspiracy theory that deserves no consideration,” he added, despite the fact that these same outlets know of the FBI’s history of entrapment.
Greenwald went on to note that Revolver News and Carlson reported the “documented ample evidence of FBI infiltration of the three key groups at the center of the 1/6 investigation — the Oath Keepers, the Proud Boys and the Three Percenters — and noted how many alleged riot leaders from these groups have not yet been indicted.”
“While low-level protesters have been aggressively charged with major felonies and held without bail, many of the alleged plot leaders have thus far been shielded from charges,” he said.
Why is that, given the pugnacious nature of the government’s efforts in identifying and then arresting as many of the Capitol protest participants as possible, to make examples of them all? Why not arrest everyone actually identified in court documents, since we know that the Biden regime is using the incident to attack and persecute all of Donald Trump’s supporters?
It can only be due to the fact that those individuals are FBI assets, and maybe even agents.
“The implications of these facts are obvious. It seems extremely likely that the FBI had numerous ways to know of any organized plots regarding the January 6 riot,” Greenwald explains. “There is no doubt that the FBI has infiltrated at least some if not all of these groups — which it has been warning for years pose a grave national security threat — with informants and/or undercover spies.”
Greenwald went on to remark that it would be wrong and out of sorts for the FBI to have not had informants in these groups. He also recounted the long history (particularly since the ‘Global War on Terror’ began after the 9/11 attacks) of FBI infiltration into groups that later turned into blatant entrapment.
The only thing missing from this equation is, of course, the corporate media, and the very same media that documented FBI informant ops (often critically) for years. Those same outlets looked askance at the Revolver News report and especially Carlson’s handling of it. These are the same outlets, as a reminder, who pushed one lie and fake news story after another about Donald Trump for five years (‘Russian collusion,’ Ukraine ‘quid pro quo,’ ‘fine people on both sides’ at Charlottesville, etc.).
Now, suddenly, those outlets are ridiculing the notion that the 1/6 protest could not have been the work of the FBI. Something stinks and Greenwald smells it:
What accounts for this furious liberal #Resistance to questioning the FBI’s role in the January 6 riot and asking whether there are vital facts that are being concealed? There was one minor analytical flaw in both the Revolver News article and Carlson segment that they seized on by pretending that it was central to the question rather than what it was: a completely ancillary distraction.
The FBI wouldn’t refer to operatives as “unindicted co-conspirators” if they were, indeed, legitimate co-conspirators, Greenwald noted, citing the corporate media shills.
But the FBI would refer to its operatives as “Person One,” “Person Two,” etc., which the Justice Department does in the charging documents related to 1/6.
Greenwald further speculates:
The most likely scenario — again, given the FBI’s history of entrapment — is that the bureau had operatives working with certain individuals to plan a riot-like event that the incoming regime could use to quash its political opposition.
It’s happened before, only in 1963, the deep state handled it a different way with John F. Kennedy.
