But he isn’t always quite as generous toward protesters.
“The Daily Show” put together a supercut video comparing Carlson’s praise for armed right-wingers who stormed the Michigan State Capitol to how he slammed pro-union protesters in 2011 who shouted in the capital in Wisconsin.
He thanked the Michigan protesters for “exercising your constitutionally protected rights.”
But in 2011, he slammed the Wisconsin group.
“Pro-union protesters scream like children,” he said. “Why doesn’t the left make its case, win the voters of Wisconsin to its side, rather than resorting to tactics that really are contemptible.”
