A former US Army psychological warfare officer says that Tucker Carlson was fired by Fox News because of the regime's agenda to maintain an "uninformed semi lobotomized quasi retarded population."
The remarks were made by US counter-terror expert Scott Bennett.
Carlson and Fox News "parted ways" on Monday with speculation still raging as to the specific reason why the network canned its highest rated and most popular host.
According to Bennett, Carlson posed too much of a threat to institutional power because he turned Americans into proper "researchers and thinkers".
Carlson offered an "intellectualism, truthfulness, and an analytical depth that no other news personality has ever done in the history of the United States as far back as I can remember," said Bennett.
Tucker needed to be "silenced" because he represented too big a threat to the "powers and principalities, institutions and agendas that seek an unenlightened uninformed semi lobotomized quasi retarded population that do not question, do not research, do not analyze but simply digest and follow instructions," according to Bennett.
"Tucker Carlson also exposed the fraud and money laundering racketeering crimes of FTX and the Democrat Party in Ukraine involving the United States government. He exposed the US biochemical labs in Ukraine and their connection to the Democrat Party, President Barack Obama, Vice President Biden, Hillary Clinton, George Soros, Bill Gates, and other US government agencies and pharmaceutical companies," Bennett told Sputnik.
The ex-host's anti-regime rhetoric "could no longer be tolerated by the corrupt American media and political establishment," said Bennett, adding that his exit signals "the death of American media".
The former US army psyops officer suggested that Senator Chuck Schumer had threatened to utilize the CIA and the FBI to deploy secret government operations against Tucker to get him off air unless he was fired.
Schumer previously called for Carlson to be taken off air after he broadcast footage showing the January 6 ‘riot' leaders were actually allowed into the Capitol and chaperoned around by authorities.
As we highlighted earlier, one of the reasons behind Tucker's dismissal is a lawsuit fired by former show producer Abby Grossberg, who claims she was bullied and subjected to sexist and anti-semitic harassment.
However, Grossberg's own lawyer revealed that she has never even met Carlson.
