Wallace said after playing Carlson’s recent ugly effort to divide America, “Millions of people have heard this. Call the child protection service. Call Law Enforcement Keep calling. At this tipping point with COVID, the frayed fabric of our lives of the past 13 months is slowly being knitted back together with safe and effective vaccines, a new president to help heal the country from the virus, and growing resources to everyone, who are financially affected. And then the most watched host at Fox does everything possible to turn neighbors against neighbors and to push the police in that country into the middle of its performative evaluations. It’s repulsive.
The MSNBC host continued, “The White House in Biden is laser-focused – but soon, soon, you will face a serious threat from the lies that are being told about the virus. The repeal of the mask recommendations for the vaccinated is the dangerous incitement to conflict about the right of parents to protect their child. “
Nicolle Wallace was right, but what Tucker Carlson is doing is nothing new. Ever since Trump politicized the wearing of masks, the right has been the pro-COVID party. When Biden took office, the GOP’s motivations shifted.
Tucker Carlson’s call to gun over masks was really about sabotaging Joe Biden. Republicans and their conservative media misinformation distributors want to keep COVID strong to ensure the economy does not recover and Republicans can return to power in 2022 and 2024.
The coronavirus has been politically armed by Republicans to tear the country apart. Carlson’s comments were disgusting, but they were only the latest attack in the Republican war against America.
