♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> tucker: good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." if you lived in this country 15 years ago and you've got a good memory you may remember the creation of something called the national security division at the department of justice. giv it was created back in 2005 when they re-upped the patriot act. now the point of the national security division, we were told
10:01 pm
at that time, was to conduct "counterterrorism and counter espionage operations against foreign adversaries." this was the big stuff. mostly it was islamic terror, which was the primary threat of that time, but these were also the people in charge of busting chinese spies who were trying to steal our nuclear secrets, stopping suicide bombers and hijackers.le not small stuff, crimes that threatened the nation beer that was then. then joe biden became president in january, and the entire mission of the united states government changed and turned inward against you. a few days ago the department of justice under the radical attorney general merrick garland announced that the national security division has a new domestic commission. according to garland, effective immediately the national security division is handling the investigation ofel "harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against school board members, teachers, workers in our nation's public schools." the question is, who is threatening these teachers and school board members?li is it al qaeda? is it the russian government? is it isis-k?
10:02 pm
no, it is parents. parents are angry about what is happening in schools. where the angry? take a close look at the people joe biden have nominated to senior leadership positions in the department ofoo education. take a look at youtube videos, while they still exist, of who board meetings across the country and you will know exactly why parents are mad. parents who believe in things like biological sex, -- teaching kids to hate their parents, those are the threat, according to the biden administration. you will notice if you look closely that nowhere inn merrick garland's recent order or the doj positivist press release is an explanation of these "threats of violence." what threats of violence? because violence occurred at school board meetings? no. look closer and you will find this one, "the justice department will also create specialized training and guidance that will help school board members understand the
10:03 pm
type of behavior that constitutes threats. h oh, so it is a propaganda operation funded by you out of the department of so-called justice designed to tell teachers and school board members that when parents complain it is domestic terrorism, not the first amendment, not your constituents voicing legitimate complaints. it is effectively a foreign adversary trying to kill the biden administration is trying to convince school board members using the department of justice that they are in physical danger from parents and those parents are national security threats. p once again, nothing like this has ever happened in this country. this is an utter perversion of the mission and the power of the united states department of justice. it is almost impossible to overstate how sinister and crazy this is. we almost never play the equivalence game because it is tiresome but in this case, it is ndhard to resist. imagine if donald trump doj designated, say, cnn anchors as domestic terrorists.
10:04 pm
put it in writing and then told men with guns to enforce the law. how would that go over? we, for one, would be outraged by that. all decent americans would. a lot of cnn anchors made excuses for violence during the riots of last year, but the media aren't upset about this. when powerless suburban parents resist having nihilistic rulingt class ideologies imposed by force on their children, our media seem to believe it is perfectlye fine to designate tm terrorists and threaten them with firearms. >> and a version of america where school board meetings have become the new culture were battlegrounds with children caught in the cross hairs. sometimes literally and sometimes figuratively. >> right now everyone from the proud boys to qanon influencers are trying to encourage their members, their followers, their maniacs to show up at school board meetings. >> some behaviors so bad it is being compared to domestic terrorism. >> this becomes a nationoa all security crisis.
10:05 pm
>> pretending school board harassment and intimidation aren't off the charts. >> similar tactics to what happened on januaryre 6th that e now being turned against school boards nationwide in a trend that is really disturbing and sinister. >> conservatives manufacture outrage of her masks history lessons, took our school boards hostage likeke a bunch of screaming maniacs. >> tucker: the federal government has designated american parents who are unhappy with the education their children are receiving as domestic terrorists, and the media are defending it. this is so shameful it is hard to describe. the entire point of a free press is to protect the weak from the strong. but as usual and more flagrantly every day, our media does exactly the opposite. they slobber over billionaires, they defend the powerful, they call you a big it you challenge george soros, and on the other hand they clap like seals as a working go to jail for not crimes.
10:06 pm
they pretend that is not what they are doing, that they are sucking up to power, the biden administration, but they are. they are telling you this is about domestic terrorism, they are repeating merrick garland's own words, freedom of speech. on msnbc, one of the by administration's closest allies promised that she would air definitive proof that parents who dared to challenge the orthodoxies of the joe biden administration are in fact a grave threat to national security. she would show us proof that the national security division needs to investigate these parents, treat them like criminals for daring to speak up at their own school board meetings before member of the school board they schools they pay for to educate their children. here's the evidence she presented. >> i want to place more sound of the school board meetings so we can get a sense of how out of
10:07 pm
control some of them are getting. take a listen. >> don't put masks on our kids anymore because i'm telling you what, i am a mom who is fearless and i will come after you! >> you're allowing child abuse, you'ree allowing child abuse, you're allowing child abuse, you're allowing child abuse. >> things have become so scary these meetings, the organizations representing school boards are asking federal government to help, arguing the classification of these actions could be equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism. >> tucker: so mothers stand up before their school board which is their constitutional rights, in fact their duty as parents, to say u that they believe based on a lot of scientific evidence that their children are being hurt by a policy that makes no sense. imagine looking at that tape and blaming the moms. and suggesting their behavior is "scary." and they are terrorists and the fbi should show up at their house andd hassle them like they are isis-k.
10:08 pm
assuming that even exists. don't put masks on our children anymore, that is child abuse. actually, that is true and anyone who has looked at the data knows it is true. belgian pediatricians in the academy of medicine just issued this assessment of masks in schools. here it is, "testing children, imposing mouth masksen in quarantine go against the principle of first do no harm which is included in the hippocratic oath that doctors take. these drastic actions do much more damage to children in the short and long term then going through the covid infection itself." now that is not some angry mom from laguna beach. those are physicians saying that and if you look around, and you should, you will not find a single study anywhere in thes world that fundamentally contradicts that assessment. there is no science, none, behind these mask mandates for children. in fact, days ago miguel cardona, secretary of education,
10:09 pm
try to cite a study -- and when he used this study to justify a political decision, the senior author of the study said that he had no idea what he was talking about and completely misrepresented her research, which by the way had no control group, so by definition doesn't prove anything. but don't bother, don't even bother getting rational on this subject. if you dare to cite scientific conclusions, you are a domestic extremist in the media will demand you be investigated by the fbi. and they are justifying this in exactly the same way the chinese government explains the way murders are committed. they are accusing people who have been completely wronged by the government of undermining domestic stability by complaining about it. om what used to be called legitimate civic disagreement is now a threat to the nation. >> is this really about people being upset about mask mandates or are there underlying disruptive forces?
10:10 pm
white nationalists, anarchists, whatever in this country that are using mask mandates in a public health crisis to wage chaos. >> tucker: get that moron off television, that is hurting our country. they are racist now? they are racist because they don't want their kids to be masked? nimagine saying something like that. there are underlying forces at work. a secret forces you can't see. it must be qanon or white supremacists. there are noo organized white supremacists in this country. we have a lot of problems, that is not one of them here the point is we don't like their politics therefore they don't deserve civil liberties. that is what they are saying, that is what they believe. you have to wonder if any of these people havees ever seen a school board meeting or if they are repeating what they were told. the parents didn't start chaos, they didn't start this,ve they have a totally ordinary and unjustified education that the kids would be educated is that kids have been educated for more than 100 years in public schools.d
10:11 pm
parents slowly woke up to this fact, the kids are being taught racism in schools, their kids are being hurt, what the hell are you doing? i,parents go to meetings to voe objections to teachers advocating racial segregation and book burning and they are doing it on campus, they are not doing it in secret, these are just normal americans. here's virginia back in may. >> it's funny how they are so afraid of their children seeing another view of sexuality, gender or religion. if you want to talk about books that are assigned, let's read "to kill a mockingbird" together. if you are not willing to consider the racial trauma this assigned book causes black children with its white saviorism, then you have no business discussing any books. >> tucker: well, exactly. if you're telling kids that
10:12 pm
dr. seuss and "to kill a mockingbird," both of which are explicitly antiracist and were before that was even a term thought up by some grifter at boston university, if you really believe that you are a lunatic. let's just say that out loud, you're a lunatic. if you're complaining about it you are not the one waging chaos. look around cable news and you won't find anybody explaining what is actually going on. instead you will find people ilike nicole wallace barking about how people who don't agree with her don't deserve civil liberties. we almost never use her name on the air. nicole wallace is the physical embodiment't of virtually everything that is wrong with this country. she is, in a word, loathsome. let's be completely honest, if they were declared publicly nicole wallace was a terrorist for her political opinion we would unhesitatingly leap to her defense with a maximum, we would do it instantly and we wouldn't stop because we believe in civil liberties. would she do the same for us? of course not. if the entire staff of this show was arrested tomorrow for our beliefs, nicole wallace would
10:13 pm
celebrate and that is the difference. we believe in civil liberties, and they don't. how can youou tell? has nicole wallace or anyone else at msnbc said a single word about the federal government spying on google searches?w that is happening. court documents showing that joe biden has been obtaining sensitive private information from any american who typed in certain keywords into a google search. a minnesota judge for example recently approved a secret warrant making google provide tracking anyone within a radius of edina, minnesota, who searched for a missing person's name. it is happening and no one on television and even mentions it because they think they deserve it because they don't think you have civil liberties because they don't believe in god because they don't think you got those rights from god. they think you got them from the government and they can take them away because you've been
10:14 pm
naughty. so they applied when they are y taken away. google has a lot of tracking information on their users including browsing history going back decades. that is somethinggug on the left you think they would be concerned about. 20 years ago they would be all over it. o prove once againn the government has too much surveillance power over american citizens and they are abusing this to spy on americans who have done nothing wrong. but not one of the national security experts so called on msnbc or cnn will even mention it. why is that? because their job isn't to protect you or civil liberties but to protect the party in power. that could be why they are not telling you anything about merrick garland's personal state. the attorney general's personal state in persecuting people who challenge the insanity we are seeing on school boards across the country. it turns out merrick garland's daughter is married to a man who is the cofounder of an educatio. service company called panorama education, which you will not be surprised to learn provides
10:15 pm
materials on critical race theory to school districts. including dismantling "unconscious bias and systemic racism in schools." oh, so the thing that parents are complaining about is the thing that merrick garland's family is getting rich from. two days ago merrick garland made it a crime to complain about the beliefs that are enriching his family. does that make sense? you should know that this specific company has raised a a ton of money for mark zuckerberg's foundation. fairfax county public schools just signed a $1.08 contract to conduct a multiyear social and emotional learning screener that gives it the right to collect "psychometrics" on its school's students. you want them collecting psychometrics on your kid? what is a psychometric anyway? this is insane. asking kids if they are "sad," or gender fluid. this is horrifying, also
10:16 pm
potentially illegal. according to the doj podge of his own conflict of interest policy raises serious ethical issues but of course it is. the doj rules require employees to seek official guidance before "participating in any manner in which his or her impartiality could be questioned." oh, that would include situations in which matters can affect the potential interest of a relative with which the doj employee has a close relationship. that probably includes your daughter, merrick garland. did you do that? you can be sure that no one is investigating that question tonight. instead they are promising to go after people to designate people domestic terrorists. a mother who has fought back against the indoctrination of her kids out of school in philadelphia. thanks so much for coming on. you have made a particularly eloquent case for a while the school should just teach your kids academics. how does it feel to be designated a domestic terrorist
10:17 pm
for demanding that? >> that is funny that when i was on your show the first time, i was a concerned parent and look at what happened within a year. i was elevated to the status of domestic terrorist by the doj and the biden administration. this is indeed appalling, outrageous, insane that the doj is weaponizing the fbi to oppose the policies and actions of the school board. this is something that should be very worrisome to every single parent in our country. >> tucker: and the media are defending it. this maybe the low point that i've ever seen in 30 years of watching. i have to ask him i don't think he will be intimidated by this, you told us that you came to our country in t t part for the education. you are clearly tough and single-minded, but there are parents, don't youou think, who will be intimidated into silence?
10:18 pm
>> indeed, and that is one of the biggest weapons is the weapon of terrorists to intimidate the opposition so there will not be any opposition. however, that is essential part of my knowledge and work, knowledge and education to mobilize for parents, to empower them so we expose what they are doing in schools, therefore, are parents all over the country in many states are going to school boards and are going together so they won't be intimidated, they can support each other, and insist on exposing specifically what is being taught in classes. this is really very puzzling. why we as parents cannot see what specific material our kids are learning in classes. why do we have to, in fact, pay money in order to file under the freedom of information act so we can get some look at what they are doing with our children once our children are in classes.
10:19 pm
in fact, you had on your show, someone who has been harassed by the school board to the point that -- >> tucker: to the point that he had to move. >> that's right. and nicole wallace, teachers are suing her because she insisted on getting the full record of what her kids are being taught in school. >> tucker: disgusting. i hope you will continue to resist. elana fishbein, thank you very much. we will talk to you again. andrew yang ran for president as a democrat, ran for mayor of new york city is a democrat. he is no longer a democrat. he has made a major pretty interesting announcement about what he is doing next and he makes it on this show. we will be right back. ♪ ♪ ♪

10:26 pm
talked about it, i talk about in my book "forward."or i am starting a new populist movement that will include independents, democrats and republicans alike to include real electoral solutions that are going to give rise, hopefully, to a middle ground in american politics and a greater diversity of points of view. right now, this duopoly is not working for any of us. it's not working for democrats, republicans, or independents. this is my project, the forward party. not left or right but forward. >> tucker: that is a third party. >> it is their party, it starting out as a pack because you don't become a political party on day one. you have to do bunch of other stuff., >> tucker: sure. ted kaczynski has written very extensively on this, the unabomber, bad person but smart analysis of the way systems work and his analysis is large organizations over time morph
10:27 pm
into purely self preservation projects. a big system protects itself and that is kind of all it does. so our two party system is certainly in that category. there are so many variables to starting a viable third party. it hasn't been done. why can you do it? >> i would love to go into the history and background debate which you probably know better than i do, but if you look at the constitution there is nothing about political parties, two or otherwise, and if you look at the writings of the founding fathers, they feared factionalism that didn't fluctuate, which is exactly what we have with the duopoly. if they were to wake up and see what was happeningly now they would be shocked and horrified. and when you look at americans around the country, 57% at this point want a third party. 60% think both parties are out of touch. if you were an entrepreneur, as i am, if you arrived on aot mart and said there is this dysfunctional duopoly and over half of peoplear want a new alternative you would say,y, let
10:28 pm
me create a new alternative. the problem is what you just described, that it is now structurally nearly impossible to create the new alternative. it is sort of an irresistible force and an c immovable object. >> tucker: i think it could be done. it seems to me the pressure is going to come from the lifestyle liberals, from the group in williamsburg because they are the ones who mean it the most. their whole identity is wrapped up in this weird evangelical religion they have, so i wonder, the second of third party forces to buy into radical trans ideology or whatever. you can change your sex by saying so, that is insane. of course, it is not science. but that is a tough place for you because you have to take a stand on that issue and the second you do you alienate people. f you can't kind of get around that, can you?
10:29 pm
it's an acid test. >> the forward party stands for a group of principals i think the vast majority of americans will be excited about and the first is open primaries and voting to enable diverse pointsb of view. anyone who is sick of the duopoly, even if you aren't a huge yang fan, you should be for the forward party because we are going to change the process -- we are not going to change were not willing to talk to each other and that is with the forward party's going to be about. i ran for president as a democrat. c i am now an independent. i will talk to anyone who actually wants to make our lives better and to solve the problems around us. we do not have unlimited time, -- this country's not doing well. you are a parent, i am a parent. we have to make this country stronger and more hole for the next generation or we will have failed them. i see myself as a parent trying to do the right thing for my family, your family, every family in this country. >> tucker: that conversation went on for about an hour. didn't convert me exactly to the forward power to you interesting

he kept us all locked inside to protect us from a virus that mostly spreads inside. so instead of resigning and doing the right thing, he goes on television and actually suggestsid that future historias document his life and treat him as a hero. h now, as someone with a healthy ego, tucker, even i blush at something like that. but maybe this is just satire. they do use susan rice as a character, the benghazi bag lady or maybe this is disney paying fauci back because disney shares went up 100% during the fauci lockdowns. everyone stayed home and watched disney plus and they got all the beijing profits coming in, so maybeau it is just payback. >> tucker: but what about the filmmakers?

and thinkers you don't like. >> tucker: if you are regulating humor you're kind of the exterminator at that point, are you? >> absolutely. putting your rule -- that is the whole point of satire. it is to punch up, speak truth to power. tyrants don't like that. it is the thing they hate more than anything else, so the fact that they are coming after us, we are actually not punching down, we are punching up. most of the ideas we go after our progressive, popular ideasot advanced by celebrities, corporations, politicians. they're coming from the top down.op we are punching back, we are not punching down. >> tucker: if anyone is finding the power it is "the babylon bee" and you will succeed in the end because you're smart and we are rooting for you. seth, thank you so much for coming on. >> thank you. >> tucker: we told you last night the prosecutors in chicago are refusing to file charges after a gang shoot-out that left one man dead and two in the hospital. claiming there's not enough

evidence to charge anybody. okay. we actually got a video of the shooting and you can assess for yourself whether it constitutes evidence or not. that is next.

>> tucker: if you want to know what is going on in a place, sometimes pictures tell the whole story. yois is chicago. a lot of this is at the hands of george soros. this is happening because of him and the d.a. in this city, kim foxx. what you're watching right here is a shoot out. do you notice that guy just shot another guy. there is a police car right behind him, the car pulls offan and there is a dead person on the street. now that person did in fact diee two others were injured. police want to charge all the suspects with murder and aggravated battery because that is what they was but they couldn't because the attorney paid for by george soros and foxx couldn't because this instance is "mutual combat" andd not enough evidence to show that a shooting took place.
10:59 pm
imagine you are a juror and someone showed you this tape and asked, was that a shooting? the guy firing the gun into the other guy who dies on video? is that enough evidence for you? it wasn't enough for kim foxx. there's not enough evidence, we can't really know that was her position. so nobody was charged. we told you that story last night. we hadn't seen the video yet. and so there was probably a 2% chance that maybe they weren't really sure what happened. they knew exactly what happened. but they decided not to charge anybody. why is that? it's happening in cities around the country. violent crime, shootings, murders take place and prosecutors funded by george soros refused to do anything about it. even as they tell you that your guns are the real problem. they are going to need to disarm you because gun crime is the problem.hi what are you going to do better? nothing.

we took an in-depth look at kim foxx for recent episode of our long form documentary series, "tucker carlson originals." it is on fox nation, it is pretty amazing. we will be back tomorrow 8:00 p.m., the show that is the sworn enemy of lying, pomposity, smugness and groupthink. here is sean hannity. >> sean: thank you and welcome to "hannity." breaking tonight, radical democrats on capitol hill, they have a brand-new hero with their multitrillion dollar socialist agenda now stalled in congress. it appears it might be senate minority leader mitch mcconnell throwing democratslt a lifeline. in a backroom deal according to reports with chuck schumer, mcconnell is apparently thinking about or has agreed to a raising of the debt ceiling, giving democrats more time to use what is known as the process of reconciliation to ram through the $3.5 trillion new green deal socialist agenda.
