The invasion of the U.S. Capitol by seven staffers of late-night television host Stephen Colbert has drawn no outrage from Democrats who are in the midst of their January 6 committee show trial and who have claimed that Trump supporters who were guilty of trespassing on that day were a grave threat to democracy itself.
Tucker Carlson brilliantly summed up the blatant hypocrisy by using their own narrative.
Last Thursday, the smarmy leftist comic’s team was arrested after they unlawfully entered the building mere hours after Nancy Pelosi’s sham committee had wrapped up the third in a series of its Soviet-style proceedings. They were reportedly aided and abetted by three Democrat lawmakers including Rep. Adam Schiff who is a member of the select committee, drawing an angry response from Republicans.
In his opening monologue on Monday’s edition of “Tucker Carson Tonight,” the host put the breach by Colbert’s team of “saboteurs” in the narrative terms that have been used against the J6 protesters who have been subjected to the full vengeance of a federal government law enforcement machine that Democrats have weaponized against their political adversaries.
“This is not an easy time for any of us. We get it. We’re literally – literally – still shaking as we think about how close this country came to losing our democracy last Thursday,” Carlson began. “Last Thursday was June 16th, a day forever branded in our memory, a day that has joined the pantheon of tragic turning points in human history. Where were you on 6/16? You’ll never forget and neither will we. At the time, we were preparing a show on Tony Fauci and his push for a new corona shot for kids. It seemed important then. It seems so trivial now.”
“As we were speaking on the air at that very moment, a team of seven saboteurs had entered the Capitol grounds and then proceeded, as saboteurs do, to breach the Capitol itself,” he continued. “Inside those hallowed grounds, within the very womb of democracy, these wreckers began their hunt for sitting members of Congress. That happened, ladies and gentlemen, and if it sounds shocking to you, it gets more harrowing from there.”
“This was not some spontaneous outbreak of insurrection. No, this was a meticulously planned coup from afar. The group in the Capitol was under the direct control of an extremist called Stephen Colbert who, as a white man, is by definition a white extremist,” he said. “This white extremist, Stephen Colbert, had a fifth column within the Capitol to help him pull off his diabolical plan.”
“He had members of Congress in his employ. Members of Congress who, believe it or not, helped the insurrectionists enter the Capitol, just open the doors and let them walk in. Yes, that can happen and that fifth column included Adam Schiff of California, Stephanie Murphy of Florida, and a new member called Jake Auchincloss of Massachusetts, besmirching his family name. Those three members of Congress allowed the wreckers inside the Longworth House Office Building,” Carlson said.
“Now, the man who controlled this attempted coup, Stephen Colbert, knew exactly what he was doing,” he added. “He knew the stakes. He knew the crimes he was committing and we know that because just last year, this white extremist, Stephen Colbert, explained that grown men who unlawfully enter the Capitol to harass sitting members of Congress are not pranksters. They’re not protesters. They’re domestic terrorists.”
He continued, “Oh, it’s shocking. These are domestic terrorists. Stephen Colbert, in what the literary community refers to as foreshadowing, described his own coup, and yet Stephen Colbert somehow still has access to the airwaves and to digital media, spreading his hate unfettered, convincing future generations of insurrectionists to do what his team of saboteurs did last week. That must stop. People who plan coups must be silenced.”
By placing Colbert’s staffers and their Democrat accomplices in the same narrative that has been used against the J6 protesters and former President Donald J. Trump, Carlson could not have done a more masterful job of laying bare the double standards when it comes to those who are not protected by the rigged system.
Also critical of the vastly different reactions was former GOP congressman and Fox News contributor Jason Chaffetz who told Sean Hannity that Colbert’s infiltration team should have received the same legal treatment as the January 6 protesters.
“All you ask for is equal application of the law, if somebody breaks the law, they should be charged,” he said. “On the one hand, I’m glad that the Capitol Police had the political guts to actually arrest these people, there is I think a question as to, how is it that they got back into the Capitol. Once you’ve been kicked out, isn’t there a security breach by allowing them back in for a second time?”
“I want to see these people prosecuted to the same degree and the same outrage that the left pretends on January 6th people,” Chaffetz added.
“Can you imagine, Sean, if seven Fox News staffers were arrested at the Capitol and put in jail overnight from unlawful entry into that building what the media coverage would look like?” Joe Concha, another Fox News contributor asked. “And of course, so far, the broadcast news networks, we’ve seen an almost complete blackout of the Colbert seven.”

Later in the segment, Chaffetz remarked on the unequal application of the law.
“Nancy Pelosi treats it totally different and the Department of Justice is unwilling – yet again – to add this to the long, long list of things they’re willing to prosecute. Lady Justice is supposed to have a blindfold but she doesn’t,” he said. “She’s not going to do anything in this case because it’s people that are favorable to the left.”
