Tucker Carlson is the top star on Fox News Channel.
But that doesn’t mean the GOP can always count on his support.
Tucker Carlson went on TV and asked this tough question about the Republican Party that made everyone uncomfortable.
The Biden administration announced a tyrannical plan to collude with tech oligarchs to create a nationwide biological surveillance program to catalogue Americans in a government database to track their movements through vaccine passports.
Americans that choose not to receive the coronavirus vaccine are then segregated from normal life and marked in the government catalogue as second-class citizens.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis blasted this Communist Chinese-style scheme as un-American.
“It’s completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you the requirement that you show proof of vaccine, just simply to participate in normal society,” DeSantis stated.
DeSantis added that he would ban vaccine passports in Florida through executive order and work with the legislature to pass a permanent statutory ban to make sure a future governor could not impose this dystopian scheme on the Sunshine State.
Appearing on “Fox and Friends,” Tucker Carlson had a surprising reaction.
Carlson praised DeSantis for his stand against COVID fascism, but Carlson questioned why the Republican Party’s elected leaders in Washington left it to a governor to lead the charge against Joe Biden’s authoritarian plan to force Americans to turn their private health information over to tech oligarchs and forfeit all their rights as free citizens over the decision to inject an experimental substance into their bodies.
“Why is it left to the governor of Florida to say that?” Carlson told the hosts. “Aren’t there 50 Republicans in the Senate? Why aren’t they standing in a line with Mitch McConnellin the center saying ‘No, we’re not doing this, I’m sorry, you’re not allowed.’”
Carlson questioned the privacy implications of this scheme.
“You are not allowed to know if your kid has a sex change, and now your private information—whether you are vaccinated or not —that information in the hands of the tech companies and that will determine whether you can participate in American life?” Carlson wondered.
Carlson added that if the government sat down to invent a way to drive interest in conspiracy theories and increase vaccine hesitancy, they could not choose a better tactic than vaccine passports.
“If you’re trying to calm people down about the idea of vaccines, and make them less vaccine-hesitant, and convince them it is not a conspiracy run by Bill Gates, then you won’t consider doing something like this,” Carlson added.
After DeSantis promised to ban vaccine passports, other Republicans began to speak up.
But many conservatives were wondering what took so long in the first place.
