Tucker defends fake vaxx cards as not criminal: ‘Act of desperation by decent, law-abiding Americans’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson came to the defense of Americans who have been “forced into a corner by tyrants” and feel they have no choice left to them but to purchase fake vaccination cards if they don’t choose to get the jab.

In the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” segment on Thursday, the conservative host excoriated Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. for charging and arresting 15 individuals who sold and purchased counterfeit COVID vaccination cards in New York. Some of those being prosecuted are healthcare workers. Approximately 250 cards were reportedly sold on Instagram.

“Now these arrests will be used to justify digital health passports for the entire American population. That is true. Save this tape. In fact, Cyrus Vance has already enlisted Big Tech to help rout out the disobedient in New York. Quote, ‘We need companies like Facebook to take action to prevent the fraud happening on their platforms,’ Vance said. ‘Making, selling, and purchasing forged vaccination cards are serious crimes with serious public safety consequences.’ End quote,” Carlson reported.

“Except that’s a lie. Buying a fake vaccination card is not a, quote, ‘serious crime.’ It’s not even close to a serious crime. Buying a fake vaccination card is an act of desperation by decent, law-abiding Americans who have been forced into a corner by tyrants. You know what’s a serious crime? Forcing Americans to take drugs they don’t need or want. That’s a very serious crime. And let’s hope, in the end, someone is punished for it, severely,” he concluded.

Carlson pointed out that the healthcare workers who have been charged know the science behind the vaccines better than politicians do. “In good conscience, they’ve risked their careers to preserve their right to bodily autonomy and now they’re in jail for that,” he said.

Approximately half of the 15 people charged with felonies in New York were arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court.

Authorities are alleging that 31-year-old Jasmine Clifford from Lyndhurst, New Jersey sold 250 fake COVID-19 vaccination cards and colluded with 27-year-old Nadayza Barkley, who works at a medical clinic in Patchogue, to enter at least 10 people into the New York State Immunization Information System database.

It should be noted that 13 people who bought the forged cards are also charged and are believed to work in front-line positions in hospitals and nursing homes.

Court documents indicate that beginning in May, Clifford advertised the fake vaccine cards on her Instagram account, @antivaxmomma, and charged about $200 per card. Prosecutors are claiming that for an additional $250 buyers could get their name entered into the state vaccine database.

“We prohibit anyone from buying or selling fake – or even genuine – COVID-19 vaccine cards. We removed Ms. Clifford’s account at the beginning of August for breaking our rules, and we will review any other accounts that might be doing the same thing,” a Facebook spokesperson said to CBS2 in a statement. “We appreciate the DA’s work on this matter and will remove this content whenever we find it.”

The FBI is warning that making or using a fake vaccination card is illegal. The unauthorized use of an official government agency’s seal is a punishable offense according to the agency.
