Tucker: Politicians continue to use the virus as a pretext to force agendas on a weary population

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson began his Wednesday night show with a monologue that addressed the U.S. government’s continuing efforts to rule by fear as it insists on keeping COVID present in the minds of the populace, despite inconclusive and often contradictory data over the efficacy of vaccines and boosters.

Given how much families and businesses lost over the past two years, Carlson said the instinct is to move on with normal life, but Democrat leadership makes that incredibly difficult, for they must have a hold on every aspect of the average person’s life.

“First, politicians are continuing to use the virus as a pretext to force their agendas on an unwilling and weary population,” Carlson explained. “That’s happening still, believe it or not. And second, and maybe more significantly, long term, somebody has got to rescue science from the ideologues who all of a sudden have taken it over. Science must be objective. Science must be honest. Otherwise, everything falls apart.”

Carlson recalled that in April of last year, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and prevention conducted a study that included first responders, nurses and physicians split into vaccinated and unvaccinated groups.

“What they found was so significant that the head of the CDC, Rochelle Walensky, went directly to MSNBC to tell the world what researchers had found, and here’s what she said: ‘Our data from the CDC today suggests that vaccinated people do not carry the virus, don’t get sick and that’s not just in clinical trials, but also in real-world data.'”

That information turned out to be dubious at best and, as Carlson reminded, “in some sense to be the opposite of the truth. In some cases, the vaccinated are more likely to get variants of COVID. The death rates around the world for the vaccinated are extraordinarily high, but at the time, anyone who had doubts about what Rochelle Walensky said was told to shut up.”

“Those who questioned her out loud were kicked off social media. If you kept questioning, you might be fired from your job. Doubting Rochelle Walensky’s promises, doubting the Biden administration’s claims about the COVID vaccine was totally unacceptable. It was like questioning their views on herd immunity or mandatory masking for children or airline passengers or closing the schools.”

He continued, “Now that we know that virtually everything they said about COVID was wrong, however, no one has admitted it, and no one has been punished. No one at the CDC was fired for this. In fact, they were elevated. Under Joe Biden, the people who made these claims, these false claims, have even more power than ever. Rochelle Walensky is back on television. She’s demanding that parents force their children as young as six months old to take the COVID shot. They’re all saying this, Tony Fauci, Joe Biden too.”

Carlson then played a clip of the usual suspects advancing their newfound directives.

ROCHELLE WALENSKY: I know many parents with very young children have been anticipating this day. Parents, I strongly encourage you to get your children vaccinated.  

DR. ANTHONY FAUCIThey do get infected and they do pass the infection. So, we would hope that family members who are responsible for the children will realize that and will be enthusiastic about getting their children vaccinated.

PRESIDENT BIDEN: And finally, COVID-19 vaccinations for children over five years of age. Finally, some peace of mind.  

“Amazingly, despite all of their demonstrated failures, all of their documented dishonesty, those three people are still, as of tonight, in charge of this country’s response to COVID,” Carlson remarked.

“Virtually every news show in America seems to be sponsored by Pfizer, so clearly turning on television is not going to give you an answer you can trust. You need to find an independent, science-minded researcher or physician who’s looked at the actual data. And there are very few who’ve done that and are willing to be honest about it. Marty Makary of Johns Hopkins University is one of them. He’s just written a remarkable piece in Bari Weiss’ Substack, and he wrote it with epidemiologist Tracy Hoeg,” Carlson continued.

Makary and Hoeg argued that Pfizer and Moderna had used “extremely weak, inconclusive data” to justify vaccinations and boosters for children as young as six months old.

They wrote, “Using a three-dose vaccine in 992 children between the ages of six months and five years, Pfizer found no statistically significant evidence of vaccine efficacy.” They continued, “In the subgroup of children aged six months to two years of trial found that the vaccine could result in a 99 percent lower chance of infection, but that they also have a 370 percent increased chance of being infected.”

That’s not confusing at all.

“What does that mean? We have no idea, and we don’t know how you would know because those data are completely incoherent,” said Carlson.

He concluded, “So, based on those numbers, apparently those are the underlying numbers, how could the Biden administration, how could the people who run public health in the United States of America push for the immediate vaccination of children over the ages of six months? We need to assess what exactly these data are and why public health agencies seem to be ignoring them.”
