Tucker Carlson says QAnon Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene is only facing criticism because 'CNN believes she has bad opinions' and slams 'the new democracy where networks get the veto'

 Fox News' Tucker Carlson rushed to the defense of QAnon Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene on Monday night as he claimed that she is only being targeted because CNN says she has 'bad opinions'.

In the opening of his show, Carlson blasted the push to have the freshman congresswoman from Georgia expelled from Congress, and branded CNN as 'children'. 

He branded it the 'new democracy' where 'CNN gets the veto'. 


Carlson also claimed that 'free inquiry is dead and unauthorized questions are hate speech', as he criticized attempts to cast the conspiracy-theory-loving lawmaker as 'America's greatest enemy'.

His commentary came just after Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell condemned Green as a 'cancer for the Republican Party' due to her 'loony lies'.

House Democrats are currently mounting an effort to formally rebuke the newly elected congresswoman, who has a history of making racist remarks, embracing conspiracy theories, and endorsing violence directed at Democrats.

Yet Carlson claimed Monday that the lawmaker is only receiving attention because news organization such as CNN do not agree with her, and that she is being used as a distraction to take focus off other stories linked to the Biden administration.

'No woman is more dangerous than this freshman member of Congress,' he joked.

'The threat that she alone poses, as they say on cable news, is existential. This single congresswoman may be just weeks away from developing nuclear weapons.

'Oh. How dangerous is this three-named congresswoman you have probably never heard of?' Carlson continued.

'Well, so dangerous that in the name of democracy, she must be expelled tonight from the Congress!'


Carlson noted that Greene won her election 'with 75% of the vote' which he said was 'roughly the same percentage that Nancy Pelosi got out in San Francisco'.

'There's no question that her voters very much wanted her to represent them in Washington,' Carlson said, yet added 'on the other hand, what do her voters have to do with democracy?'

'That's not how democracy works,' he quipped.

'In the new democracy, CNN gets the veto. If cable news doesn't like your views, you have to leave Congress. That's the rule.

'The test is entirely ideological. You don't actually have to harm anyone to lose your job. This new member of Congress has barely even voted, but CNN says she has bad opinions. Therefore, she's the greatest threat we face.'

He then again accused CNN of attempts to take his show from the air as he claimed: 'Anyone who suggests that this one member of Congress is not really America's greatest enemy is by definition one of America's greatest enemies.'

He slammed CNN as 'children', yet warned 'that does not mean they will not win in the end or that it won't get worse in the meantime'.

Carlson added that the news network was now looking for a new target as 'Donald Trump is gone now'.

'If there's no more Donald Trump, that means you get to be Donald Trump,' he cautioned.

'The sad thing is, they're missing a lot. This is the media, after all. Their job is to cover the news.

'And there are tons of interesting things happening right now, things that you tend to miss when you spend all day screaming about a single member of Congress from Georgia.'

He then referenced the Reddit versus Wall Street controversy from last week, after earlier claiming that the Biden administration had snuck some early day decisions under the radar.

Among them he listed Biden sending troops to Syria and attempts to make the District of Columbia the country's 51st state.

'No presidential administration has changed so many basic facts of American life as quickly as Joe Biden's administration has over the week and a half that it's been in charge,' Carlson alleged.

The TV host's defense of Greene came after McConnell issued his heavily critical statement about the congresswoman on Monday evening, and as House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy prepares to meet with her on Tuesday.

'Somebody who's suggested that perhaps no airplane hit the Pentagon on 9/11, that horrifying school shootings were pre-staged, and that the Clintons crashed JFK Jr.´s airplane is not living in reality,' said McConnell.

'This has nothing to do with the challenges facing American families or the robust debates on substance that can strengthen our party.'

Greene immediately pushed back on McConnell's comments on Twitter, writing that 'the real cancer for the Republican Party is weak Republicans who only know how to lose gracefully'.

'This is why we are losing our country,' she added.

McConnell's statement is expected to put pressure on House Republican leaders to discipline her, despite Greene boasting on Monday that she would soon be visiting Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort.

On Saturday, she had also claimed that she enjoyed a 'great call' with the former president and that he fully supported her.

Given Trump's enormous sway within the party still, McCarthy is not anticipated to act against Greene when he meets with her Tuesday. 

Democrats have teed up action Wednesday to send a resolution to the House floor that would strip Greene of assignments on the House education and budget committees, if McCarthy doesn't do so first. 

Greene's views were in the spotlight even before she joined the House last month.

The Georgia Republican has expressed support for QAnon conspiracy theories, which focus on the debunked belief that top Democrats are involved in child sex trafficking, Satan worship and cannibalism. 

Facebook videos also surfaced last year showing she'd expressed racist, anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim views, and more recently emerged of harassing Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg overe gun control.
