WATCH: Tucker Carlson Says COVID Spike Proves Lockdowns Didn’t Work
Back in March and April, the coronavirus was rampaging through the country. The states that were getting hit hardest included Washington state, New York and New Jersey. Those states instituted lockdowns that helped to stop the surge. And those states still have restrictions in place to keep the virus from ramping up again.
A number of states that no little to no restrictions are seeing massive surges. And the majority of them are in states that voted for Donald Trump. The majority of these states did not shut down in the Spring. Still, Tucker Carlson says that these surges are proof that lockdowns didn’t work.
The Fox host told his viewers:
“You may have noticed America is locking down again in some places that’s already happening. If you have kids, you’ve seen it. Joe Biden has promised more of it. Masks and quarantine, limits on travel, restrictions on who you can eat with, who you can touch, and how. The most intimate details of our lives completely controlled by our leadership class. People who used to scream at the politicians, ‘Keep your hands off my body’ aren’t saying a thing about this. In fact, they’re encouraging it.
So the question is what exactly is this about? It’s not about science, if masks and lockdowns prevented spikes in coronavirus infections we wouldn’t be seeing spikes in coronavirus infections after 9 months. But we are seeing them. So clearly, the geniuses got it wrong once again. This time, they’re not even bothering to point to legitimate scientific studies to support continuing the policies because there aren’t any studies that support that.”
