Fox News’ Tucker Carlson is never shy about asking tough questions on his nightly show, and his Tuesday show was no exception.
Carlson just revealed a controversial take on the health implications of the much-lauded COVID-19 vaccines, questioning big tech’s collaboration with oligarchs such as Melinda Gates to shut down any transparency or even questions about vaccines
Carlson noted right off the bat that “Most Americans already supported vaccines. They didn’t need to be browbeaten in order to be convinced,” but that the government and media’s heavy-handed treatment of the vaccine rollout has made many suspicious.
The Fox host explained:
After months of hearing that life could never return to normal until we get a vaccine, we got a vaccine (two, actually), but life did not return to normal. In fact, life got worse. We were instructed to take the new vaccine as soon as possible and then to put on more masks. Anyone who complained about that was punished. Most people obeyed the orders (not like they had a choice), but the whole thing made them nervous.
Why exactly did the rules change all of a sudden? Was there a good reason for that? When are we finally going to repeal corona law? And what about this vaccine? Why are Americans being discouraged from asking simple, straightforward questions about it? How effective are these drugs? Are they safe? What’s the miscarriage risk for pregnant women? Is there a study on that? May we see it? And by the way, how much are the drug companies making off this stuff?
These questions are not conspiracy theories, they’re the most basic questions in a democracy. Every citizen has a right to know the answer, but instead we got fluff and propaganda. The media rollout for the vaccine came off like a Diet Pepsi commercial at the Super Bowl. Tons of celebrity endorsements, not a lot of science. It was totally disingenuous and naturally it had the opposite of the intended effect.
Carlson noted that “The tech companies announced early they would not allow anyone to criticize this vaccine, and anyone who did would be kicked off their platforms right away. Corporate media then took it upon themselves to enforce this rule,” adding that any stories about vaccine injuries and deaths following the administration of the vaccine were immediately suppressed.
It doesn’t make anyone anti-vaccine to wonder what the side effects of a vaccine that wasn’t fully tested on a number of demographics could be, but the media is treating anyone wary of the health implications as an outright conspiracy theorist.
“Effectively, “COVID-19 Vaccine Injury Stories” no longer exists. CNN shut them down, erased them. Search for the word “vaccine” on Facebook now and you will find a lot of material that precisely matches the storyline approved by Melinda Gates and her fellow non-scientist billionaires,” Carlson noted. He continued:
The line is clear, you’ve heard it a million times: The COVID vaccine is morally good, period. Don’t dare say anything else. So if your neighbor drops dead after getting the shot, keep it to yourself. Facts like that are not allowed on Facebook nor on Twitter.
“I posted that there were multiple reports of adverse reactions [to the vaccine],” wrote one Twitter user, “and that the vaccines were still not fully trialed on pregnant women and kids. Twitter banned me until I deleted it for false information.”
Science can’t live in an environment like this. Without relentless skepticism, science dies. That’s what science is, relentless skepticism. And when it leaves, inevitably it’s replaced by witchcraft and superstition. Are we there yet? You decide.
