When Will Tucker Carlson Invite Helga Zepp-LaRouche on Fox To Reveal the Truth about Ukraine’s Target List?
July 27, 2022 (EIRNS)—Fox TV’s Tucker Carlson took aim against the July 14 target list published by the Ukrainian Center for Countering Disinformation on his show yesterday, accurately denouncing the repressive, pro-war policies of the current Zelenskyy regime. But he failed to inform his listeners that the first 30 of the 78 individuals on the Center’s list were all speakers at Schiller Institute conference, nor did he dare to mention the obvious fact that Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche was at the top of the list and clearly among Zelenskyy’s main targets.
Carlson instead turned to Glenn Greenwald and Tulsi Gabbard, who provided useful, but incomplete, readings on the significance of the Ukrainian hit-list. Greenwald attacked the Zelenskyy government:
“They’re begging and, in a sense, demanding that other countries, including my own, the United States, provide them with a seemingly endless supply of weapons and money, which means we not only have the right, but the obligation to debate that and ask whether that’s in the interest of the American people to do.”
Gabbard warned about the danger of the war in Ukraine escalating into a nuclear conflict, as she has in the past: “The Washington elite from both parties are continuing to be willing to impoverish the American people— and people around the world—and push us closer and closer to nuclear war and holocaust, all to protect democracy and defeat autocracy in Ukraine,” she said.
“And all of this is happening as the Ukrainian president is frankly exposing that there is no democracy in Ukraine. You mentioned a few examples of some of the things that he’s doing in silencing any dissenting voices, imprisoning political opponents, banning all political activity from the 11 opposition parties, frankly, taking control of all national media under his unified information policy.”
“And now he’s turning his sights on Americans, not only myself and others you’ve mentioned, but a sitting U.S. senator,” she continued, referring to Rand Paul, who is also listed by the Ukrainian Center.
