President Joe Biden has claimed that white supremacy is the greatest threat to the U.S., though the definition has broadened to mean any political enemy. One of those supposed enemies apparently happens to be Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
Carlson announced on his program Monday that the Biden administration is spying on him, Breitbart reported. An insider in the National Security Agency allegedly tipped off the host of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and gave details of a story the show had been secretly working on as proof.
“The main threat we face as a nation, Biden told us, is white supremacy — white American terrorists,” Carlson told viewers. “Our intelligence and law enforcement agencies have concluded that, the president said. It’s an established fact,” he said, noting that the Biden administration places this threat above the Black Lives Matter protestors who burned cities and Islamic terrorists.
Carlson pointed out that despite the fact that the FBI considers the threat so remote that it disbanded a task force charged with investigating white supremacist groups, Biden still asserts that as fact. “It is waged for partisan political purposes. Tell black voters that Republicans are the KKK, and maybe they’ll keep voting for you,” Carlson said. “That’s the idea. It’s certainly easier than fixing Chicago or raising test scores, which they should be doing.”
The host said the war on terror has “pivoted” to go against American citizens. He noted that the FBI had “confidential sources, snitches” among the crowd during the Jan. 6 incursion at the U.S. Capitol.
“But it’s not just political protesters the government is spying on,” Carlson said. “Yesterday, we heard from a whistleblower within the U.S. government, who reached out to warn us that the NSA, the National Security Agency, is monitoring our electronic communications, and is planning to leak them, in an attempt take this show off the air,” he said.
“The whistleblower, who is in a position to know, repeated back to us information about a story we’re working on that could only have come directly from my texts and emails,” he later added. “There’s no other possible source for that information, period. The NSA captured it without our knowledge for political reasons. The Biden administration is spying on us. We’ve confirmed that,” Carlson noted.
He explained that they have filed a Freedom of Information Act request to find out what intelligence the government has gathered from the show, but doesn’t expect it to go anywhere. Still, Carlson noted this situation has larger implications.
“If they’re doing it to us — and again, they are definitely doing it to us — they’re almost certainly doing it to others,” Carlson warned. “This is scary, and we need to stop it right away.”
If this allegation is true, it’s a frightening prospect that the American government is using its power against its own citizens. Furthermore, trying to silence a member of the media for political purposes is unconscionable in a nation that guarantees a free press and free speech for all.
