Fox is taking COVID-19 very seriously. In fact, the company requires all of it’s employees to be vaccinated or take a daily test. The vast majority of workers have complied and gotten their shots.Tucker Carlson, though, pushes vaccine hesitancy on a nightly basis. And each week, he seems to get even more aggressive in his stance.
Last night, the Fox host brought Candace Owens on to talk about the virus. According to the duo, the Cult of Coronavirus is overtaking Christianity as the country’s number one religion.
Carlson was particularly angry that New York Governor Kathy Hochul who said that God would want people to get vaccinated. He began, “What’s dying is the faith that created western civilization, Christianity. In its place is a new creed. And like all religions, it has its own sacraments, its own sacred texts. It’s the cult of coronavirus.”
The Fox host continued, “Joe Biden would like to see everybody on board with this program. Everyone believing wholeheartedly in this new faith. He’s called for 98 percent of the United States of America to convert, to get those shots. One, two, three, maybe every Sunday. That’s a lot. That’s a big percentage of people.”
