Tucker Carlson warned Tuesday that the disruption in the Colonial Pipeline and the resulting shortage panic is being carried out by design.
Carlson noted that the situation represents a “grimmer version of the 1970s” with many states declaring emergency shortages, and resulting price gouging as a result of, we are told, “some mysterious gang of cybercriminals [who] hacked the software at a major American fuel supplier.”
Referring to the Biden administration, Carlson declared “The same lunatics who don’t believe in Human Biology immediately made a serious mess of our economy, it took them less than six months to do it.”
Comparing the scenes to Venezuela, Carlson noted that the New York Times says this is just another “conspiracy theory”.
“On some level, let’s be honest about it, the White House approves of this disaster,” Carlson proclaimed, adding that “the lunatics plan to close every gas station in the entire United States, shuttered forever, to make way for some new as yet not quite defined means of transportation that will magically replace the gasoline engines that we have used for more than a hundred years.”
Carlson continued “bad federal policies are distorting the price of everything in this country from two by fours to diesel fuel to corndogs.”
“None of this is an accident just as it wasn’t an accident when the power went out in Texas over the winter,” the host continued, adding “It wasn’t a cold snap that did it. It was a federal policy that encouraged the state to rely on windmills which don’t actually work.”
“It’s not a natural cycle. Somebody did this to us on purpose,” Carlson warned.
