Since the Jan. 6 riots on the U.S. Capitol building, troops have descended on Washington, D.C., in mass numbers, for President-elect Joe Biden's Jan. 20 inauguration.
While lawmakers and the establishment media say the troops are meant to protect the capital city from violence, Fox News host Tucker Carlson is not so sure.
"So no matter what they are telling you, those 26,000 federal troops are not there for your safety," Carlson said on Monday night's segment of "Tucker Carlson Tonight."
"Instead, unmistakably, the Democratic Party is using those troops to send the rest of us a message about power: 'We're in charge now.'"
This quote is sure to stir up controversy, but Carlson has a point. It's a point that he goes on to back up with facts and logical reasoning.
