Hayes slammed Carlson for “selling his audience in his, you know, ‘just asking questions’ way, that the entire thing — the storming of the Capitol by a mob of rioters — was a false flag set up by the FBI.”
“This conspiracy theory, the feds are behind the Capitol riot, is based on a report from this fringe right-wing publication, Revolver, which we know Donald Trump likes. It’s crazy, crazy stuff,” Hayes continued. “It’s in the same category as Hugo Chávez’s ghost changing votes and Italians using magical satellites to get into voting machines.”
The aim was “to break the consensus of reality so that people can be manipulated and radicalized,” Hayes said. “It is incredibly dangerous, and it is working.”
