FNC’s Carlson: Lawmakers, Media Hyped Imaginary QAnon Invasion in D.C.

 Friday, FNC’s Tucker Carlson hit the media and Democrat members of Congress for playing up the threat of a so-called QAnon incursion that did not occur.

As Carlson explained, the so-called “invasion” was set to go down earlier in the week in all 50 state capitols and Washington, D.C. However, there was no sign of any such event.

Carlson compared that to the Black Lives Matter riots around the country throughout last year.

Transcript as follows:

CARLSON: QAnon, the greatest threat we face not inflation, not China, QAnon, everyone is saying it. But you may be wondering just how dangerous is QAnon? Well, here’s the answer.

The District of Columbia National Guard announced today that all troops who took part in the mission to protect our democracy from internet conspiracy theorists will now receive medals in recognition of their heroic sacrifice.

Now, the primary medal is called the Presidential Inauguration Support Ribbon. That’s for people who were there for President Biden’s inauguration. But that medal will be supplemented in cases in which our heroes have earned it by the Emergency Service Ribbon.

So if you’re a D.C. Guardsmen who has been on duty in the city since late January, protecting America from Trump voters, you can add another medal to your chest, and more may be coming.

According to Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Robert Carver — and we’re not making any of this up, by the way — Carver made the announcements today and said this quote: “Other Federal decorations are also being considered.”

Wow. That seems like a big deal. How big? Here’s some context.

More than 60,000 American soldiers and Marines fought on Guadalcanal in the South Pacific during the Second World War. About 15,000 of them died or were wounded there. But not one of those men, not one, got an official Guadalcanal medal for the experience because the Pentagon didn’t offer them.

Guadalcanal may have been horrible and bloody, but it just didn’t justify its own ribbon. Guadalcanal wasn’t North Capitol Street.

The Imperial Japanese weren’t as fanatical as Trump voters and not half as dangerous. No medal.

So yesterday, they told us the war against QAnon was likely to escalate intensely. March 4 would be the Tet Offensive in the fight against right- wing insurrectionism. It was something called QAnon Inauguration Day.

Now we’d never heard of that before, but then we don’t work at the FBI The FBI has been monitoring the enemy SigInt, that Signals Intelligence for the neophytes out there. That means tweets, Facebook posts, TikToks — James Bond stuff.

According to what our guys were hearing in the field, QAnon was preparing an invasion of Washington, and that means thousands of bearded groovy shamans in Viking hats, marching across the Key Bridge to pillage Georgetown cupcakes and end our democracy. It’s a gruesome sight.

Needless to say, Nancy Pelosi stopped work in the House of Representatives so that Members of Congress could flee the city for their lives, and many did.

Andy Kim, for example, he’s a congressman from New Jersey. He wrote this, poignant, “This all seems absurd if it wasn’t frightening.” He prepared to flee the Capitol on March 3rd and wrote his, in effect, diary on Twitter, “The Diary of Andy Kim.”

“Now our legislative plan tomorrow has been cancelled as we are rushing tonight to finish the work we plan to do. Thousands of National Guard and Capitol Police will be on edge tomorrow as they stand watch over the Capitol. They will worry about possible attacks by American citizens.”

Andy Kim was panicked. He sounds like a man preparing for the worst. Quote, “Another wave of sadness comes from the fact that this is not getting better. The FBI Director said this threat is metastasizing.” And so Andy King became a refugee in his own country.

But not everyone ran from the sound of the approaching QAnon Shamans. A few hardened war correspondents ran toward that sound. That’s what they do.

Chris Bedford of “The Federalist” is a man like that. While our elected representatives were clinging to the struts of the last chopper out of the city, Chris Bedford was at the Capitol itself, the center of the battle. Here was the scene there.


CHRIS BEDFORD, “THE FEDERALIST”: I was told that a lot of conservatives are insurrecting today and am I at the wrong place?


CARLSON: No, Chris Bedford, you weren’t in the wrong place. There was simply nobody there.

It took The Washington Post five crack reporters to determine this. They rushed to the scene. Their conclusion: on Capitol Hill, wrote the five Washington Post reporters quote, “The streets are quiet. People walk their dogs in the morning sun, masked students sat on steps drinking coffee. Construction crews continued with their projects.” That was their dispatch.

Jeff Bezos spared no expense. One reporter assigned to monitor the construction crews. Another on the dog walking beat. No one there.

So why wasn’t there anyone there? Where was the QAnon battle? What? Said MSNBC, what QAnon battle? Nobody really thought there was going to be a QAnon battle. Watch.


CHUCK TODD, MSNBC HOST: Have we learned more about any specifics of this threat or are you starting to think this is under the umbrella of maybe we’re being a little more precautious since we under reacted on January 6th?

PETE WILLIAMS, NBC NEWS JUSTICE CORRESPONDENT: Definitely the latter, Chuck, no question about it. The Intelligence that was gathered by law enforcement, I’m told was of a specific group, talking about the idea of doing an attack on the Capitol today on March 4th, talking about an idea. In other words, aspirational.

I don’t think anybody expected anything to happen today, but nonetheless, you know, abundance of caution seems to be the watch phrase here.
