Fox News host Tucker Carlson says the Left is shamelessly weaponizing the coronavirus to transform America into a clone of communist China.
Carlson noted how shockingly fast the change is occurring, with Americans forced to close their businesses, banned from going to church, browbeaten to wear masks everywhere, and remain under house arrest overnight.
“The Left had no plans to let the public decide anything,” Carlson noted. “Instead, they issued resolute decrees: remain at home, wear a mask, do not congregate with others. No one asked voters what they thought about any of this.”
Tucker said this Marxist revolution is happening at lightning speed through the joint efforts of the Democrat Party and their left-wing minions in the mainstream media and Big Tech.
Meanwhile, the Democrat Party’s “armed militia” of Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs are the muscle that is terrifying law-abiding Americans on the streets.
“Things have changed so fast, so dramatically, this year that it’s hard to remember what a very different country this was on New Year’s morning,” Carlson recounted. “Back then — a little over seven months ago — the U.S. felt politically volatile. It definitely was. There was an election coming. But it still felt fundamentally American. There was no mistaking this country for any other country. We weren’t Mexico or Luxembourg or Burundi. And we definitely weren’t China.”

Carlson noted that the United States has begun to resemble communist China, where dissenting viewpoints are mercilessly squelched, political enemies are murdered or jailed, and the citizenry is given no choice but to shut up and obey.

Tucker said the Democrats enabled this transformation through race-baiting media propaganda and the brutal mob oppression of anyone who dissents.
“In some ways, all authoritarian societies are the same,” Tucker said. “They are characterized by corruption, a lack of social trust, and a deep cynicism about government. All those attitudes are endemic in China. Suddenly, they are nearly universal in this country.”
Carlson added: “The public understands that our leaders are lying to us. Politicians use lockdowns for political ends. In the name of public health, they reward supporters, and they punish their opponents. They’re barely hiding this anymore.”
“They’ve done it since Day One. But most of us wrongly assume that our Bill of Rights would prevent them from going too far. That was our backstop against tyranny, but we were wrong. The Bill of Rights has not prevented them from doing precisely what they want to do.
In state after state, governors have targeted the faithful on the assumption that most traditional Christians do not vote Democrat. Therefore, they must be punished.
Banning the exercise of religion is unconstitutional. It’s a direct violation of the letter and the spirit of the First Amendment. It has never happened before, but [Democrats] have made it happen.
They’ve closed church services and synagogue services and arrested people for attempting to attend them.”
Carlson also pointed out that in addition to demonizing the police, Democrats have launched a relentless attack on the Second-Amendment right to self-defense.
One glaring example of this is the malicious prosecution of the St. Louis couple who protected their home from a Black Lives Matter invasion after thugs threatened to kill them.

On Thursday, New York State Attorney General — Democrat Letitia James — also filed a federal lawsuit to dissolve the NRA.
Tucker Carlson said the brick-by-brick dismantling of longstanding American institutions is part of a larger goal to destroy the country.
“In a free society, self-defense is the most basic right. All other rights rest upon it,” Carlson said. “Self-defense is illegal in China. And suddenly it’s illegal in this country, too.”
“The Democratic Party’s militia loot stores, deface our cities, attack people with impunity, and they are rarely punished for doing it. Yet Americans who try to protect their families from the violence face the full rage of the state. They risk going to jail. They have been indicted.
As in China, there are now two standards of justice. The party has decided who can be armed. Everyone else must submit.
It wasn’t always this way in the United States. In fact, until recently, we had a functioning Constitution. But anyone who remembers that is a threat to the state. History itself is a threat to the state.”
Carlson noted: “In China, there is no history. Like religion, the past is purely a political tool to be shaped by temporary leaders seeking to protect their power. In place of God, the State offers secular cults in which citizens worship party-approved political martyrs. It doesn’t sound very American, but suddenly it is.”
