Carlson: ‘Record inflation is here to stay’ and Dems are using primetime J6 hearing as distraction

The spectacle of the televised Jan. 6 committee hearing has begun and, while a number of reasons have been suggested as to the motivation for the partisan political production, Fox News host Tucker Carlson argued the Kabuki theater of the “show trial” is all meant to distract from a purposeful “collapse” of one fundamental element of American society.

The host kicked off Friday’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” with a lengthy monologue on corporate media’s forceful promotion of House Democrats’ political witch hunt in lieu of the drastically more imminent and pressing concerns of the American people.

As he lambasted the histrionic cries of the “danger to our democracy” posed in regard to the unresolved investigation into the breach of the Capitol on Jan. 6, Carlson argued, “every minute they’re doing that, they’re not covering the collapse of the American economy, something everyone actually cares about,” and that is by design.

“If you are a major debt holder, the only way out for you is to make the money less valuable, and so they did this on purpose. They want inflation to skyrocket, of course, and continue to rise. You’re not going to hear any of that from the professional commentators on cable news,” he stated.

“These topics, like the state of the U.S. economy, are now off-limits. You have to pretend that January 6, 2021, remains the single worst thing ever to happen to America, even though not one living person really believes that, and if you don’t say so, if you don’t confess the one true faith in public, you’ll be hurt,” Carlson argued.

He then went on, “this is a perverse arrangement and you’ve got to wonder who benefits. The Congress and the entirety of corporate media bury the actual problems facing the United States, pretend like they’re not even happening. Why are they doing this and who is getting rich from it?”

“Inflation doesn’t happen by accident,” Carlson declared. “It’s the product of choices.”

“The inflation we’re now living through was created on purpose. The United States government got to a place where the debt was too big, and the only answer was to inflate it away,” the host added.

“If you’ve got massive corporate debt,” Carlson said, as inflation has risen to the point that the average family has lost an entire month’s wages on higher costs, “it’s a really good deal because you get to pay yesterday’s accounts, yesterday’s debts with today’s inflated dollars.”

“That money has lower real value, so you were getting a deal. It’s a scam. They’re doing this on purpose,” he railed. “But you could only pull that off if the people you were hurting were completely distracted, so let’s scream at them some more about January 6. Then they might not notice.”

“At this point, we don’t really have a choice but to tolerate inflation. That’s the truth,” Carlson noted as he presented the case that solutions like raising interest rates will only further cripple Americans with credit card debt and make investments like purchasing a home infeasible.

Meanwhile, President Joe Biden, who had previously claimed rising inflation was transitory, has fully embraced the pivot that it is entirely the fault of Russian President Vladimir Putin. “This is the Biden administration strategy,” Carlson contended. “Talk about something else. Shame you if you don’t think it’s the most important thing.” All the while, his cronyism continues to enrich his corporate allies on the backs of the American people.

“So record inflation is likely here to stay,” he concluded. “If you want to know why they’re talking about January 6 in primetime, that’s why.”
