[WATCH] Fan Takes Tucker Carlson’s Advice, Harasses Masked Kids
Fox News host Tucker Carlson created yet another controversy around the wearing of masks in public when he told his viewers they should harass any families they see whose children are still wearing face masks outside.
Now a viewer of Carlson’s from Virginia has been caught on tape doing just that.
A still-unidentified man spent this past Tuesday this week yelling at families in the Rocky Run Park in Arlington, Virginia because they were still having children wear masks outside. The man used the exact same words that Carlson used last month in a Fox News broadcast where he said parents who still masked their children should be directly confronted for purported “child abuse.”
The mother of the children can be heard on the video asking the man to mind his own business. “Leave me alone, you’re stressing my baby,” she tells the man.
A father who was at the park with his children told a local news station that the man also spouted conspiracy theories about masks, at one point yelling, “Look at these kids — child abuse, child abuse, suffocation, suffocation,” the man ranted. “Why are these kids in masks outside? You understand how harmful that is to their mental welfare?”
The father described how the man just came right up to them and began verbally attacking them. “He start yelling at them, that they were doing ‘child abuse’ for ‘forcing’ our kids to wear masks, and saying all that conspiracy theory speech,” the father said. “He start filming our kids, and yelling… and as you can see in the video all children start running away from him. My wife call me and also called the police. Police arrived but he was already gone.”
There's a common theme that weaves through grievance politics, perpetual victimhood, “cancel culture”, the recent anti-riot laws, and the January 6th insurrection.
