Tucker Carlson Compares Criticism Of The Unvaccinated To ‘Lynchings’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson says he’s had enough of people daring to criticize those who refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine for the explosion of cases and hospitalizations taking place in states such as Alabama, Florida, and Texas, and he believes such criticism is the same as lynching.

Many of those refusing to get vaccinated, it should be noted, are anti-science conservatives who have all sorts of absurd reasons for not taking the shot, even claiming that they’re fearful they’ll be implanted with a computer microchip.

According to Carlson, the country is being misled by those who want Americans to get the vaccine:

“Unfortunately, the entire country is being manipulated by highly clever, ruthless people who are harnessing the worst qualities in human nature.”

And then Carlson made the ridiculous comparison to lynchings:

“You know, lynchings have happened throughout history — not just simply in this country, but in all countries — because there’s something in people that wants to turn on the unpopular kid and beat him to death — that’s like, who we are, it’s the ugliest part of who we are.”

Is it just me, or does that sound like some big-time psychological projection on Tucker’s part? He looks like the preppy douchebag bully type who would have gotten his jollies locking smaller kids in their lockers during high school.

There was also a tortured attempt by Carlson to equate racial hatred with urging people to take the COVID vaccine:

“Vaccinated, unvaccinated — white, black. These divisions, which we didn’t recognize a year ago are now defining our lives.

“And we’re being used. I mean, that’s the truth, if you want to subdue people, divide them and that’s exactly what they’re doing.”

Divide and conquer, Tucker? Isn’t that exactly what Donald Trump did for four years? And yet we never heard you say a word about Trump’s fondness for setting us against each other.

Tucker Carlson is an asshole. I’m willing to bet he and his entire family have been vaccinated, but he still wants to play the victim, because that’s all conservatives have left. They know their numbers are dwindling, so they’re resorting to fear, hate, and lies.
