OpEd by Tucker Carlson from July, 2020:
Editor’s note: After 8 months of lockdown, it is more apparent than ever that we are being played. We acquiesced at lockdown, so they demanded businesses close. Businesses closed, schools closed, then they demanded we muzzle ourselves. We muzzled ourselves for months and now people are getting sick from it, and they no doubt will call that COVID19. All over a virus that still has a 99%+ survival rate. I’ve had enough, and Tucker Carlson has had enough. How about you?
From Tucker Carlson:
I’m sorry but anyone who thinks that social distancing is a good idea for the next few years, actually wants to be micro-chipped or thinks that a ‘benevolent’ dictatorship is for the good of humanity, I don’t want to give that point of view any of my energy. I am a free human being and if you want to stay home, stay home.
That’s your sovereign right to choose. If you want to wear a mask, wear a mask. That is your sovereign right to choose. If you want to avoid large crowds, avoid large crowds. That’s your sovereign right to choose.
I am not required to descend into poverty for YOU. I am not required to abstain from human contact for YOU. I refuse to participate in “quarantine life” until there’s an unsafe, untested vaccine released in eighteen months.
I refuse to receive a vaccine to make others feel more safe because that is MY sovereign right to choose!
If you’re convinced the vaccine is safe and effective, you can get it yourself. Some of you are allowing fear and policies devoid of scientifically accurate data to destroy the country you live in and ruin your life.
We have a constitutional right to take risks. Life is full of bacteria and viruses, many of which spread before symptoms manifest and after they subside. We have a sovereign right to receive OR refuse vaccines. The data was inaccurate at best; purposely overblown to justify government overreaction at worst.
Stop allowing the government to destroy: The food supply; Small businesses; Medical autonomy; Access to healthcare; Mass gatherings; Privacy rights; Our mental health & freedom.
When the “new normal” is filled with starvation, depression, suicide, child abuse, domestic violence, imprisonment, governmental spying, and pure DESPERATION, the “virus” is going to look preferable to the world you helped facilitate. I’m going to turn this around on people from now on.
Those who say I’m (or anyone that supports this) putting money over lives by wanting the country back open for business, hear this:
-YOU don’t care about the people who will kill themselves out of hopelessness
-YOU don’t care about small businesses that’ll close their doors (THEIR LIVELIHOOD) permanently
-YOU don’t care about the children/women/men who will be victims of domestic abuse
-YOU don’t care about people defaulting on their mortgages
-YOU don’t care about bills going unpaid by families with ZERO income right now
-YOU don’t care about people wondering where their next meal will come from
-YOU don’t care about the people who will lose their sobriety and slip back into alcoholism
-YOU don’t care about the people who will starve -YOU support the inevitable looting that’ll take place
-YOU don’t care about anyone who is murdered the longer this shut down goes on
-YOU don’t care about people’s mental health -YOU don’t care about the children who DO need teachers and educators to guild & educate them
-YOU don’t care about the economy crashing down around us
-YOU DON’T CARE.
-YOU love your shackles begging your leaders for MORE shut down and MORE regulations and MORE handouts.
I will NOT tolerate another person telling me that I don’t care about lives. I care about the situation in its entirety. But YOU don’t care about any of that so… YOU stay home. YOU wear a mask. YOU live in fear. I on the other hand will not as is my soverign right to choose NOT TO!” – Tucker Carlson
