In a brutal segment Friday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson slammed the “insanity” of the political leaders and so-called public health “experts” who’ve performed a 180 and gone from demonizing lockdown protesters to propping up “Black Lives Matter” protesters.
“For months, as you well remember, the people in charge told you that they were unilaterally canceling your constitutional rights,” the segment began. “You no longer had the right to assemble, to speak freely, to worship. You thought those were guaranteed by the Bill of Rights? Not anymore.”
“In fact, in many parts of the country, people still don’t have those rights, but our leaders say they had no choice but to take them away. This was a medical emergency. It was more important than your rights. They were lying. We always thought they were lying. Now we know for sure.”

The proof came this week in a stunningly hypocritical and ideologically driven letter from over 1,000 “experts” who claimed that participating in massive Black Lives Matter protests is OK but participating in lockdown protests makes you a white nationalist.
“[A]s public health advocates, we do not condemn these gathering as risky for COVID-19 transmission,” the “experts” wrote of the ongoing “protests” and riots. “We support them as vital to the national public health and to the threatened health specifically of Black people in the United States.”
“This should not be confused with a permissive stance on all gatherings, particularly protests against stay-home orders. Those actions not only oppose public health interventions, but are also rooted in white nationalism.”
View the letter below:
“In other words, anybody who complains about being locked down is a racist, except the people who refuse to be locked down because they are protesting racism. Heads, I win. Tails, you lose. These are public health officials. This is insanity,” Carlson continued, summing up the letter to a T.
“Just days ago, you were told any kind of gathering could kill thousands of people. You would be a murderer, you would be a genocidal murderer. That was before we knew that viruses have their own woke political agenda and the only rallies we should ban are those with people who have the wrong ideas, people who want to earn a living or go to church. Those protests are racism.”
The irony, Carlson added, is that these “experts” are the same sorts of uppity elites who love to lecture conservatives about so-called “science.”
“And this is all coming from people who lecture you about science, who wouldn’t recognize science if it got in the shower with them, but who’re still lecturing about science, which is always a pretext for ways to destroy our country and control your life,” he said.
Take climate change “science,” which has been used to justify plans to completely upend the global economy and world by eliminating virtually every product of the modern age, from simple automobiles to complex airplanes.
“This is a sham,” the FNC host continued. “It was a front for tyrants to inflict their personal neuroses and their desire for control on the United States of America and do it outside the democratic process, outside democratic norms. Every person who signed this letter is a faker. None represent science. We should never listen to any of them again.”
This view is shared by a growing contingent of Americans:
I thought this was @TheOnion at first, but then I realized it was the moment that revealed what is REALLY been driving this insanity bus.
The far left’s urge to virtue-signal is SO overwhelming that they always let the cat of the bag. This open letter is that happening.

Reminder that we no longer have experts – they’re all political hacks.

25 million Americans are out of work, 110,000 people are dead, thousand and of businesses are shutting down, and virtually every facet of American life has been severely disrupted.
Public health experts should not now be telling Americans that big group gathers are just fine.

Thank you to the Bolsheviks for ending lockdown and exposing the fraud of our “experts,” the hypocrisy of our Democrat politicians, and the complete ineptitude of our media. Time for a Trump rally!

You mean self-serving hypocrisy tends to undermine the credibility of alleged experts? https://t.co/tNDuGhhdqH

It’s not that conservatives dislike expertise and science — it’s that they distrust the “expertise” and “science” of contemporary “experts,” all of whom have habitually proven themselves to be nothing but ideologically driven political hacks.
After all, what else is one to think when the so-called “experts” argue that it’s OK to protest for one thing but not protest for another?
