Tucker Carlson unleashed one reality check that could end Dr. Fauci’s career
America is in the middle of a pandemic.
Public health experts like Dr. Fauci claimed locking down the economy was the only way to stop the spread of the virus.
But now Tucker Carlson unleashed one reality check that could end Dr. Fauci’s career.
The Fake News Media accepts it as an article of faith that the lockdowns the sent 22 million Americans to the unemployment line were effective in slowing the spread of the virus.
So-called “journalists” cheer on these lockdowns because of the economic damage they inflict because they think it hurts Donald Trump’s re-election chances.
But do these lockdowns even work?
Tucker Carlson called out these lockdowns as having no actual scientific basis.
“Mass quarantines, they tell us again and again, are the only way to save lives,” Carlson said. “But that’s a lie. They don’t know it’s true, despite what they’ve claimed. There’s no scientific record to consult. It’s never been done.
“We’re currently living through the largest and most expensive experiment ever conducted in human history. We’ve spent trillions of dollars, and crushed millions of people, purely on the guess that a nationwide lockdown would save us from the coronavirus. Has it worked? Was the guess correct?” Carlson asked his audience.
Carlson pointed out that the eight red states that did not issue shelter in place orders had fewer deaths and cases than the national average on per capita basis.
The Fox News host also noted that Sweden – which did not lockdown their country – has weathered the coronavirus outbreak in much better fashion than Italy, England, Belgium, and Spain, all of whom issued strict lockdowns.
“Are you surprised by this?” Carlson continued. “Maybe you shouldn’t be. You can see the same trend at work in other countries. Sweden, most famously, has never locked down.
“Restaurants there have never closed. That country is still suffering from coronavirus, suffering more in fact than we are in the U.S. But the country’s epidemic appears to have peaked. And without locking down, Sweden has, and this is the key, has fared far better than other European countries that did lock down. That includes Britain, Italy, Spain and Belgium.”
Fellow Fox News host Brit Hume asked if these lockdowns were the biggest “public policy calamity” of Americans lifetimes.
Carlson backed up that assertion with real numbers that should force Dr. Fauci and other health experts who pushed these lockdowns to answer for the devastation they caused.
