Fox Nation is airing a Tucker Carlson documentary that promotes the conspiracy theory that government agents sparked the uprising.

Fox Nation, Fox News’ streaming service, has released the first instalment of a Tucker Carlson documentary that claims the Jan. 6 insurgency at the Capitol was escalated with the involvement of the US government.

The first episode of the three-part series “Patriot Purge” became available for viewing on Monday, despite opposition from the Anti-Defamation League and reporting from Fox News’ Washington bureau that questions Carlson’s entire premise. Fox News aired trailers for “Patriot Purge,” titled “The True Story Behind 1/6.”

Carlson, the top-rated Fox News personality known for his inflammatory commentary, said in the documentary that “federal agencies have a long history of entangling Americans in manufactured plots,” and that the Jan. 6 event — which resulted in the deaths of five people, including a Capitol police officer — began as a peaceful protest demanding “election integrity” until the crowds were provoked into violence.

According to Fox News journalists, there is no evidence of any such FBI involvement.

While Fox News is known for giving its opinion hosts a lot of leeway when it comes to discussing issues, which can sometimes lead to misinformation, the Carlson documentary appears to be particularly egregious. A Fox News spokesperson declined to comment on the programme.

The programme goes on to say that the Jan. 6 incidents are being used by law enforcement to persecute former President Trump’s supporters, claiming that “the left is hunting the right.”

The documentary’s content reflects Carlson’s previously debunked conspiracy theory about the FBI’s involvement in the riots, which he previously presented on his nightly Fox News show.

Carlson is given a wide berth to present his views on Fox News. Fox News lawyers successfully argued in defending a defamation lawsuit brought against the network last year that no “reasonable viewer” would take Carlson’s comments seriously.

Fox News aired a segment on “Special Report with Bret Baier” on Friday about the ongoing congressional investigation into the insurgency. It featured an interview with Marc Polymeropoulos, a former veteran CIA officer who dismissed the notion that the events of January 6 were a “false flag” operation. The term was used in a trailer for Carlson’s series.

“One of the things with false flag operations as well, is sometimes it’s used by conspiracy theorists to actually hide the truth,” Polymeropoulos explained. “Pretty far-fetched, in no way was January 6th a false flag operation.”

Congress has been looking into evidence that former President Trump resisted calls to disperse demonstrators on Jan. 6 from Republican lawmakers and his own advisors, and that his lawyer continued to urge Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the election results while the insurgency was taking place. In a speech that morning, Trump encouraged his supporters to march on the Capitol.

Critics were outraged even by the trailer for Carlson’s programme, which aired during prime time on Fox News.

In a letter last week to Rupert Murdoch, executive chairman of Fox News parent company Fox Corp., Anti-Defamation League Chief Executive Jonathan Greenblatt called Carlson’s series “an abject, indisputable lie and blatant attempt to rewrite history” and asked that it not be aired.

Carlson’s show was also chastised last week by Fox News colleague Geraldo Rivera, who slammed it on Twitter and in an interview with the New York Times. “I’m probably going to get in trouble for this,” Rivera said in the interview, “but I’m wondering how much is done to provoke, rather than illuminate.”

Carlson did promote the documentary series on Fox News’ morning show “Fox & Friends” on Monday.

Carlson and the staff who put together his nightly prime time programme produce and write “Patriot Purge.” There are no Fox News reporters involved in the production.

The programme, which appears to be a half-hour political ad with dozens of rapid-fire edits of news footage, is only available on Fox Nation, a streaming service described by Fox News Media as a “entertainment and lifestyle programming” service that caters to conservative viewers with true crime shows and patriotically themed documentaries.

According to analyst estimates, Fox Nation has more than 1 million subscribers who pay a monthly fee for the commercial-free service. Unlike Tucker Carlson’s prime-time Fox News show, which has seen an exodus of major sponsors who do not want to be associated with his views, the streaming platform is not subject to advertiser pressure.

AURORA – This Could Be a Dream lyrics

“AURORA – This Could Be a Dream lyrics”

[Verse 1]
Look up at the light
This could be a dream or it could be real
Dive in to my mind
And don’t come up for air, you won’t need it here
Can I move you? Can I serve your fear?
Could you trust love, if I prove it’s there?
Oh, I need to know it too
And now I don’t feel you

[Chorus]
So I lift myself and I close my eyes
And I sing sometimes to know I’m alive
I know I should figure this out on my own
But if you come back could you take me home?
I get back up when the wind is strong
But I wish I knew how it felt to run
I know I’m not alone
And if you come back could you take me home?

[Verse 2]
Being so alive can hurt so very much
When you’re losing touch
But if I touch you, would you feel it there?
Could I trust love, even if I’m scared?
Oh, I wish I could give, like I’m longing to give
Oh, I wish I could live, like I’m longing to live

[Chorus]
And I lift myself and I close my eyes
And I sing sometimes to know I’m alive
I know I should figure this out on my own
But if you come back could you take me home?
I get back up when the wind is strong
But I wish I knew how it felt to run
I know I’m not alone
And if you come back could you take me home?

[Bridge]
This could be a dream
This could be a dream

[Chorus]
And I lift myself and I close my eyes
And I sing sometimes to know I’m alive
I know I should figure this out on my own
But if you come back will you take me home?
I get back up when the wind is strong
But I wish I knew how it felt to run
I know I’m not alone
And if you would come could you take me home?

“AURORA – Exhale Inhale lyrics”

[Verse 1]
I was a moving thing
Before I was a human being
I was the ice before it melts
I was the tree before it fell
My dear, come near
Do you understand what is happening?

[Verse 2]
Crawl beneath the earth
To feel the hunger and the thirst
If you could fly and be the bird
Then you would see the forest burn
My dear, come near
Do you understand what is happening?

[Chorus]
(Mm-mmm-mmm-mmm)
Who’s calling me for the emergency?
(Mm-mmm-mmm-mmm)
Who’s listening to the sirens singing?

[Verse 3]
We are stood and somehow calm
Within the madness of the storm
With no solution for the scared
Tasting pollution in the air
My dear, come near
Do you feel my hand, it is there

[Bridge]
(Exhale) Inhale
(Exhale) Inhale
(Exhale) Inhale
(Exhale) Inhale
(Exhale) Inhale
(Exhale) Inhale
(Exhale) Inhale
(Exhale) Inhale

[Chorus]
(Mm-mmm-mmm-mmm)
Who’s calling me for the emergency?
(Mm-mmm-mmm-mmm)
Who’s listening to the sirens singing?

[Outro]
Take from our world no more
Take from our world no more
Take from our world no more
Take from our world no more

AURORA – Blood in the Wine lyrics

“AURORA – Blood in the Wine lyrics”

[Verse 1]
I was given a heart
Before I was given a mind
A thirst for pleasure and war
A hunger we keep inside
We fell from sky with grace
And life gave us a sweeter taste
You can drink, you can feast
There’s beauty in your beast

[Pre-Chorus]
The flesh in the fruit, and the blood in the wine

[Chorus]
Come and feel alive, lover
Come and feel the love, like a sinner
Shout it louder
Shout it for the ones who could never say
I won’t feel ashamed, mothеr
Can you break the chains off her?
Shout it loudеr, not a sinner, she’s a lover

[Verse 2]
I was given a name
Before I was given blood
Like you were given your faith
Before there was made a God
Young rivers in your hands
And grass burning in promised lands
You can drink, you can feast
There’s beauty in your beast

[Pre-Chorus]
The flesh in the fruit, and the blood in the wine

[Chorus]
Come and feel alive, lover
Come and feel the love, like a sinner
Shout it louder
Shout it for the ones who could never say
I won’t feel ashamed, mother
Can you break the chains off her?
Shout it louder, not a sinner, she’s a lover

[Instrumental Break]

[Chorus]
Come and feel alive
Come and feel alive
Shout it louder
Shout it for the ones who could never say (Louder)
Come and feel ashamed, mother
Can you break the chains off her?
Shout it louder, not a sinner, she’s a lover

[Instrumental Break]

[Chorus]
Come and feel alive, lover
Come and feel the love, like a sinner
Shout it louder
Shout it for the ones who could never say
Come and feel ashamed, mother
Can you break the chains off her?
Shout it louder, not a sinner, she’s a lover
