With the Delta variant of COVID-19 surging around the country, many businesses are now testing or requiring vaccines for their employees. It’s not just to protect their business, but also the well being of their workers.Fox News is one of these companies following those mandates. But you’d know that from listening to Tucker Carlson. During his Thursday night broadcast, the Fox host pushed his viewers to use fake vaccine cards to get around these programs.
The host ranted:
“The real problem, according to Chuck Schumer, is that we have fake vaccine cards — not fentanyl — fake vaccine cards coming from Mexico. That’s the real threat.
A federal crackdown. There’s more fentanyl coming over our border killing Americans across the country — American citizens, born here — than ever before in history. Mexico is in the middle of a drug war. The Zetas, MS-13 from Central America — all coming up here. Chuck Schumer doesn’t care.
But counterfeit vaccine cards? That might allow people to get around insane vaccine mandates, which are immoral and unconstitutional? No. Those people need to go to prison. That’d be very bad for America’s health. It’s totally, completely nuts.”
Those who decide to take Carlson’s advice could be risking plenty. Penalties range from fines, to termination to prosecution.
