Fox News host Tucker Carlson discussed the implications of Big Tech companies illegally working with intelligence agencies and the Democrat party to censor speech during Monday night’s edition of his eponymous show.
“What we learned on Friday is that Big Tech works aggressively and in secret with government agencies to subvert the outcome of what the rest of us assumed were free and fair elections,” Carlson said. “During the 2020 election, Twitter did this with the help of the FBI, committing censorship on behalf of one candidate while working to hurt the other candidate.”
“It is hard to imagine a more brazen attack on our democracy than this,” Carlson continued. “This is not how our system is supposed to work. In fact, it’s illegal.”
“What Twitter did is a violation of the First Amendment as well as of established campaign finance law,” Carlson added. “They never declared those contributions to the Biden campaign. That’s a crime.”

Carlson went on, “Of course, the FBI was working secretly with Twitter and the Biden campaign to control your brain by limiting your access to factual information. That’s how elections work. Or they’re attacking Matt Taibbi personally for daring to write the story.”
“In the United States, you get to say, as an American citizen, what you believe. Period. And under no circumstances ever may the government infringe on that right,’ the Fox host added. “Period. Again, that’s the First Amendment. And thanks to “The Twitter Files,” revealed on Friday night, we know the First Amendment has been violated more profoundly than at any time in our lives.”
“Miranda Devine of The New York Post has just reported the FBI met ‘weekly’ with Twitter executives in the months before the 2020 election.”
“And in those meetings, the FBI specifically warned about hack and leak operations by state actors that would involve Hunter Biden and would, “likely come out in October,” Carlson noted.
“For the fifth time, this isn’t just offensive. This is illegal. This is a crime,” Carlson concluded. “A very serious crime. A crime against our democracy, not trespassing in the Capitol or gazing upon Nancy Pelosi’s desk, influencing the outcome of elections. It’s beyond belief. It’s also very common, much more common than anyone thought.”
