After being called an “anti-vax quack,” Fox News host Tucker Carlson brought some frightening new developments in the Democrats’ war on so-called coronavirus misinformation to light in his Monday night monologue and hit Republicans who refuse to stand up to defend the rights of Americans.
Earlier on Monday, Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) went after Carlson and fellow Fox News Channel host Laura Ingraham, claiming they both spread “irresponsible information” about vaccines, adding, “I hope Fox will come to its senses.”
“Notice Durbin doesn’t accuse us of spreading false information. He did not accuse us of being factually wrong. We haven’t been. Nor are we against vaccines. Few Americans are against vaccines,” Carlson pointed out.”Virtually every American has had a ton of vaccines and was expecting to take this one. But when you refuse to answer basic questions about the vaccine and when you dodge them with partisan talking points like that, you make people nervous, Americans have the right to have basic questions answered before taking a medicine, that is their right. But Durbin, and hacks like Fauci, persist in pretending that any resistance to mass vaccination is somehow partisan.”
The Fox News host added that Durbin is trying to “divide the country further along partisan lines” and “tar anyone who wants more information about a specific drug as a lunatic who’s against all vaccines.”

Carlson then went on to address the about-face we are seeing from Democrats who brutalize Americans for asking questions about new medicine before they decide to put it in their bodies.
“Many of the people like Dick Durbin, who are attacking anyone who has questions as partisan or racist, are the very same people who told us for decades they were very upset about the Tuskegee syphilis experiments, and they had right to be upset about those experiments,” Carlson explained.
The authoritarian stance of many public health experts is doing “damage” to the country according to Carlson, who used recent comments made by the former head of Planned Parenthood, Lena Wen, as an example. In a CNN interview, Wen said it’s easy to force millions of Americans to comply with taking the vaccine by “just make[ing] their lives as miserable as possible until they comply,” according to Carlson.
Carlson said the damage being done by scientists and physicians like Wen is “profound,” saying “when they start talking like that, when they start making claims that have no logic, no clear medical justification, they’re just transparently political—in that case clearly illegal—when they start talking about punishing Americans who don’t want to do their will, follow instructions they refuse to explain, policies that will not account for using data instead they throw talking points at you and bumper stickers and attacking you as immoral—who’s going to believe them ever again?”
The Fox News host voiced concern that more Republicans won’t “stand up for Americans” who remain unsure about the vaccine.
Carlson called Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson a “mediocrity” for hopping on the bandwagon to promote the vaccine without acknowledging American’s concerns.
Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) minced no words on Monday when he joined CNN to discuss the matter.
“This is outrage politics that is being played by my party and it’s going to get Americans killed. Our party has been hijacked. My party has been hijacked. It is on its way to the ground, and for some people it’s a fun ride, right? We can put out this outrageous stuff on Twitter. ‘Yeah, I’m getting all these retweets and everybody knows me, I’m famous, but this plane is going to crash into the ground’… I call on Leader McCarthy, I call on every leader in the Republican party to stand up, say ‘get vaccinated,’ and to call out these garbage politicians. These absolute clown politicians playing on your vaccine fears for their own selfish gain.” Kinzinger said.
Carlson whacked back, calling Kinzinger “a low IQ” individual who “cannot be held fully responsible for most of the things he said”.
“Neither he nor anyone else who is making that case has answered a very simple question: why should people who’ve recovered from COVID-19, and there are millions in this country who are immune to the virus, why should they be forced to get the vaccine?” Carlson asked, continuing on to say that he “doesn’t judge anyone who takes the vaccine and [he] never will” but of Kinzinger, Hutchinson, Durbin and the like he said, “We judge people like that.”
Earlier in the segment, Carlson discussed the latest development in Democrats’ scheme to manage “misinformation” on the virus and its implications on Americans’ freedoms.
“Today we learned the Biden administration considers censorship is applicable to private speech as well. What you say in private, when you’re alone with your phone, you won’t be able to say or read what you want because the DNC plans to control—and apparently have the ability to control—the flow the information you receive on your phone. Nothing that questions official regime policy will reach you, according to a report in Politico,” Carlson explained.
The Politico report in question details just how the DNC plans to dispel, what they consider, any misinformation regarding the coronavirus even in private text messages.
“Biden allied groups, including the Democratic National Committee, are planning to engage fact-checkers more aggressively, and work with SMS carriers to dispel misinformation about vaccines that is sent over social media and text messages,” the report says.
Carlson has come under fire in the past for his speculation on the vaccine. In May, he received backlash for speculating about people who died right after receiving the vaccine.
“The people running the government have one standard for enforcing the law for people who agree with them, and a different one for those who don’t agree with them. That is third world,” Carlson warned at the end of his monologue. “Now those same people just gave themselves the power to read and censor your text messages. We got to resist this, you can’t let this continue. Or else you’re going to wake up in a very different place from the place you were born.”
