Tucker Carlson leveled characteristically strong words about New York Governor Kathy Hochul, Covid-19, and her use of Christianity on his Fox News show Monday.
The Fox News host exploded at a variety of subjects on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” set off when Hochul said at the Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn, New York, that God wants people to get vaccinated.
Hochul showed up to give what Carlson called “her first service as the leader of the New York archdiocese of the coronacult.” He also pointed out that she wore a small gold necklace with the word “vaxed,” in a manner that looks very similar to the simple golden cross necklaces many Christians wear.
“What’s dying is the faith that created Western civilization, Christianity. In its place is a new creed. And like all religions, it has its own sacraments, its own sacred texts. It’s the cult of coronavirus,” fumed Carlson.
Carlson complained that the “cult of coronavirus” has reached ridiculous proportions, and cited things like Dr. Anthony Fauci-themed merchandise that has appeared in online stores over the last year. The Fox News host, a frequent and vociferous critic of President Joe Biden’s push for vaccination, and compared such efforts to cult recruitment.

“Joe Biden would like to see everybody on board with this program. Everyone believing wholeheartedly in this new faith. He’s called for 98 percent of the United States of America to convert, to get those shots. One, two, three, maybe every Sunday. That’s a lot. That’s a big percentage of people,” he said.
Further comparisons were made by Carlson to polio, which Carlson apparently doesn’t have an issue with, noting that 92 percent of 2-year-olds in the U.S. have the polio vaccine, but said that “fighting polio was never a religion.”
Ironically, Fauci has also made comparisons to polio, talking to CNN’s Jim Acosta back in July about Covid-19, vaccines, and misinformation. Fauci went on to accuse Fox News in particular as being a source of misinformation, and said that the successes against diseases of the past wouldn’t have been possible in today’s climate:
“If you look at the extraordinary, historic success in eradicating smallpox and eliminating polio from most of the world — and we’re on the brink of eradicating polio — if we had the pushback for vaccines the way we’re seeing on certain media, I don’t think it would have been possible at all to not only eradicate smallpox, we probably would still have smallpox and we probably would still have polio in this country if we had the kind of false information that’s being spread now.”
Cult or not, the fact remains that the Covid-19 pandemic may remain a weaponized instrument of political warfare, as well as a useful tool for government empowerment of questionable necessity, particularly overseas. Australia has recently become the poster child for what many consider tyrannical overreach that has little to do with preventing the spread of disease and more to do with the tendency of the powerful to accumulate more power.
