Tucker Goes Full Vaccine Conspiracy Theorist in Dangerous, Delusion Rant

Fox News propagandist Tucker Carlson has been growing more emboldened, making conspiratorial and sometimes racist comments that lead to left-wing backlash but ultimately no consequences. It’s no surprise then that Tucker’s character has morphed into someone who now promotes coronavirus vaccine conspiracy theories. Last week, Tucker encouraged his supporters to accost people they saw wearing masks outside. Now, he’s moved onto the vaccination program, which thanks to voices like Tucker’s, has been less successful in recent weeks. Last night, Carlson ran a segment with a graphic next to him that read “mandatory vaccinations,” suggesting there’s a government effort to forcibly inoculate people, which there isn’t.

Tucker opened his commentary by saying he’s “telling the truth” and said it wasn’t a conspiracy to point out there could be long-term effects from the vaccines including harm to female fertility. There is simply no evidence that the vaccines impact female fertility but Tucker argued they might. Carlson relayed some partial statements by public health researcher Katherine Lee about some women getting heavy periods after getting the vaccine. While this is a known side effect of the vaccine, they have nothing to do with reduced fertility. Once again, Carlson was able to pull off his clever style of propaganda, which is not to say he’s against vaccines, followed up with an unscientific vaccine-skeptical monologue. It is people like Tucker who could prevent the United States from reaching herd immunity and may extend the timeline of this pandemic.
