During his Thursday evening program, Fox News host Tucker Carlson lamented the continuing cultural and moral decay in the country, as evidenced by the dramatic rise of webcam porn site OnlyFans, as well the news organizations that promote the sites instead of doing real stories exposing systemic political and corporate corruption.

Scores of Americans, and in particular those under 35, were hard-hit economically after being thrown out of work by coronavirus-related business closures, Carlson said. He added that, while few Americans under that age died from the disease, “an entire generation has seen its economic future evaporate.”

“Millions of young people have no jobs and no prospects of getting jobs. They are in limbo. In many cases, they are drowning in debt. They are poor. Poverty makes people desperate and when they get desperate enough, some sell their bodies,” the Fox News host continued.

While that is common in places like Africa, Eastern Europe, and war zones, Carlson said, “now it’s happening in the United States.

“Nobody seems horrified by it or even upset,” Carlson said. “Instead, our media are promoting it.”

He noted that OnlyFans and IsMyGirl, both porn websites that permit women to sell “explicit photos and videos of themselves to men online,” and that both have experienced “explosive growth during the coronavirus shutdown.”

OnlyFans, Carlson said, reports that 7,000 to 8,000 new women sign up daily, while IsMyGirl noted submissions to its site have risen by 30 percent.

“There’s no question about why this is happening,” Carlson continued. “Those sites are feasting off our collapsing economy.”

The host cited a Vice News report in April claiming that IsMyGirl had begun targeting laid-off McDonald’s and hotel workers with a “coronavirus relief package.”

“This is unimaginably ugly,” Carlson said. “It is the purest, most degrading form of economic exploitation when you have nothing left to sell, you sell your body. The people who broker that sale are called pimps. Healthy societies do not celebrate pimps, they put pimps in prison. And yet, our pimps receiving fawning profiles in daily newspapers.

“Our media greet this human tragedy like it is progress. It’s a new frontier in the gig economy. Imagine anything more decadent than that,” he added.

Carlson went on to cite a San Francisco Chronicle story published April 3 in which the paper declared, “Coronavirus took their jobs away. OnlyFans let these Bay Area people monetize themselves.”

He added that “The New York Times also approved of it, of course. The newspaper noted how unfortunate it is that digital prostitution isn’t eligible for assistance from the Small Business Association.”

Carlson also cited a BuzzFeed News story originally published on May 6 and titled, “Everyone Is Making Porn At Home Now. Will The Porn Industry Survive?” The story quoted a doctoral student “who compares making pornography to driving for Uber.”

“Actually, the Ph.D. student is onto something,” says Carlson. “For many Americans, prostitution is all that’s left. America’s politicians and finance moguls shipped millions of good-paying middle-class jobs to foreign countries. That might be the single biggest story of the last 70 years in this country.”

“But,” he continued, “our leaders have no interest in discussing economics. That’s why they push racial division on the population day after day, it’s why they’re doing it now. Why? Because a divided, bewildered country is easier to loot.”

Carlson noted that political leaders in both major parties are responsible for the loss of jobs and the ongoing racial divisions, noting that “professional Libertarians cheered the death of our real economy.”

“So here we are. Our daughters are selling themselves for food and rent, and BuzzFeed is telling us it’s cool,” Carlson added.
