When Donald Trump was voted out of office and Republicans lost control, Tucker Carlson seemingly lost it too. Each night, the Fox host goes on increasingly unhinged rants.
Not surprisingly, many of these rants are about initiatives to keep people safe from COVID. Last night, Carlson chose to enrage his audience by talking about military vaccine mandates. The point of them, according to the Fox host, is to target Christians and hyper-masculine men.
Carlson told his audience:
“To this day, only 46 members of the entire U.S. Military died from the coronavirus over the last year and a half. Suicides, by contrast, kill many, many times more. In just a few months last year, 156 service members killed themselves. So military suicide is an actual crisis the Pentagon might want to address. The point of mandatory vaccination is to identify the sincere Christians in the ranks, the freethinkers, the men with high testosterone levels, and anyone else who doesn’t love Joe Biden, and make them leave immediately. It’s a takeover of the U.S. military.”
