“Don’t say this is social control because if you do, the richest, most powerful people in the world will act in perfect coordination to shut you down immediately”
December 18, 2020
Tucker Carlson warned that the COVID vaccine rush out has come with an overarching message not to dare question its effectiveness or safety, and that those who do so risk punishment in the form of social ostracisation.
Carlson was reacting in part to the announcement by Twitter that the social media platform will remove any posts that suggest there can be “adverse impacts or effects of receiving vaccinations,” despite reports already emerging of health workers getting sick from taking Pfizer’s coronavirus shot.
Tucker covered the development, and noted how creepy it is that the ‘authorities’ did not release the names of the people who experienced severe side effects after taking the shot, nor any real details of the cases.
“All we know is, she’s a highly satisfied customer,” Carlson said, ripping the media whitewash pieces that were written as damage control. “Have a vaccine and a smile. Just do it,” Carlson added, comparing the rollout to a new iPhone release, or some other corporate product.
Tucker then argued that Americans are being highly patronised, and that will only serve to turn them off the vaccine even more.
“Twitter is censoring any claim that this vaccine might be used to ‘control populations,’” Carlson said, adding “So whatever you do, don’t say this is social control because if you do, the richest, most powerful people in the world will act in perfect coordination to shut you down immediately.”
“Censorship will not convince a single person to take the coronavirus vaccine. In fact, it will have the opposite effect,” Carlson urged.
“Even if you are strongly supportive of vaccines, and we are, even if you recognize how many millions of lives have been saved over the past 50 years by vaccines, and we do, it all seems a bit much, it feels false, because it is, it’s too slick,” Carlson continued, noting that ‘elites’ are undermining social trust through censorship.
“Once the population understands that you are holding back critical information, trust evaporates and people become suspicious,” Carlson proclaimed.
“Better to treat Americans like adults, explain the benefits, be honest about the risks, and let the rest of us decide,” Carlson emphasised.
“Why do you have to lie about it? Why are you threatening us if we don’t take it?” Tucker continued, adding “If you want people to take your vaccine, they must trust your vaccine, and if you want them to trust it, you have to let them speak freely about it.”
“In this country, we control our own bodies,” the host continued, adding “They’re always telling us that. But now the rules have changed. On the question of the coronavirus vaccine, our leaders are definitely not pro-choice. Their view is, ‘Do what you’re told and don’t complain.’ No uncomfortable questions. Those aren’t just suggestions, they’re rules, and Silicon Valley plans to enforce them.”
No sooner than Carlson had finished speaking, a torrent of establishment hacks proved his point.
CNN serial bedwetter Oliver Darcy, who does nothing but write about how terrible it is that conservatives in media are allowed to share their opinions, immediately charged Carlson with “fanning the flames of vaccine skepticism”.
