‘This is crazy’: Tucker takes CDC to task over COVID jab efficacy

Fox News host Tucker Carlson blasted hypocritical Democrats and a feckless CDC for not being straight with Americans concerning COVID vaccinations and renewed mask mandates, pointing out that the inoculations don’t exactly work the way they claimed they did.

“What’s going on here? Why are they doing this? There must be some reason for it. We’ve been wondering about it all week. Yesterday we asked the CDC to explain the reasoning behind it. They couldn’t tell us. Today they did. What an explanation. It turns out that the COVID vaccines, those wonder drugs that were absolutely perfect, that were more impressive than the moon landing, the drugs you were not allowed to question in any way, don’t actually work in the way they told us they did,” Carlson noted on his Friday show. “The science is more complicated than we thought.”

“There’s still an awful lot we don’t know. These are, after all, experimental drugs, and they’re behaving like it. The bottom line is that a huge number of vaccinated people are getting COVID, and some of them are getting very sick, even dying. That’s true around the world: it’s true in Iceland, Gibraltar, Israel — small countries with high vaccination rates have seen big spikes in COVID cases — and it’s every bit as true here in the United States. According to the CDC today, fully three-quarters of the people infected in a recent outbreak, for example, in Massachusetts had already been vaccinated. The CDC announced vaccinated people can carry the virus with them, and they can easily spread the virus to others. As the CDC conceded, ‘Breakthrough infections may be as transmissible as unvaccinated cases,'” Carlson reported.

The conservative host was referring to a CDC study that found that three-quarters of those who were part of an outbreak in Provincetown, Massachusetts were vaccinated. “Among five COVID-19 patients who were hospitalized, four were fully vaccinated; no deaths were reported,” the study concluded.

The left is now justifying forcing fully vaccinated Americans to wear masks indoors as just a routine precaution but most Americans don’t believe them in the least.

Dr. Marty Makary told Fox News on Friday, “If you’ve had the flu shot, you are at risk of transmitting the flu even though you’ve been vaccinated… The same is true for COVID. The good news is with that vaccinated protection, you’re still very protected against severe illness.”

Carlson isn’t buying into that justification.

“Ok. So now we learn that virtually everything they told us about the COVID vaccine was wrong. Looks like we were right to ask questions. Keep in mind that if you’d written any of what we just said on Facebook yesterday, you would have been censored immediately for misinformation, if not for a hate crime. Yet now, it’s the official finding of the U.S. government,” he said.

He went on to highlight Fauci’s lies on the subject.

“You remember just a few weeks ago — July 8 — that Tony Fauci himself was asked directly by a reporter whether the vaccine would work against the new Delta Variant of COVID. The honest answer would have been, ‘we’re not sure,’ or ‘we hope it does.’ But Fauci is a liar, so that’s not what he said. Instead, as usual, he pretended to know what he doesn’t know and could not know. ‘The answer,’ Fauci replied, ‘is yes, it does,'” Carlson recounted.

“Fauci said that on the record, and he said it more than once. They all said it. Again, and again, and again. And they shouted at you if you asked a follow-up question. You’d think they would be apologizing now, or at least explaining how they got it so completely wrong. But they’re not doing that. That would require humility. It might force them, perhaps, to relinquish some of the immense power they have gathered over the last 18 months. No chance. What they’re doing instead is blaming you for the whole thing. They’re punishing the country for the disaster they made. It’s your fault. The White House announced a new round of crushing lockdowns may be on the way,” he added.

Then, Carlson tore into the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“‘The CDC is a body that is well-respected,’ mutters the flack, as if repetition makes it true. Respected by whom? How many times do you have to get it wrong before people stop respecting you or believing? Is there any limit on that? And while we’re at it, why are lockdowns the obvious response to a failing vaccine? Who thought that up? What’s the justification for it? Doesn’t seem to be much,” the Fox News host continued.

“This is crazy. Let’s just say it out loud. Even the people enforcing the rules, demanding that you change your life, that you put your life on hold, don’t actually believe the rules they’re imposing on you. Nancy Pelosi just called for the arrest of anyone who doesn’t wear a mask in the Capitol, yet she just asked to take off masks for a photo,” Carlson remarked taking a shot at Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

“The question is really: How long are Americans going to put up with this? What happens when large groups of people start to resist these mandates, as inevitably they will, because they’re too unreasonable, too irrational, and not rooted in science? They’re pushing us toward something awful. Maybe that’s the point of threatening to arrest people who won’t wear masks at the Capitol. Once they’ve done that, what will they do next, call out the National Guard?” he asked.

Carlson highlighted what the end goal was of all this.

“This is what one ‘vaccine expert’ at the University of Maryland — Kathleen Neuzil — spelled out. Here’s what she just told The Washington Post. ‘We really need to shift toward a goal of preventing serious disease and disability and medical consequences, and not worry about every virus detected in somebody’s nose,’ Neuzil said. ‘It’s hard to do, but I think we have to become comfortable with coronavirus not going away,'” Carlson said.

“‘We have to become comfortable with the coronavirus not going away.’ What does that mean exactly?” Carlson concluded, echoing the sentiments of millions of Americans.
