Tucker Carlson: New mask guidelines are about politics and control

'Tucker Carlson Tonight' host says vaccine rhetoric is about politics and social control

Strong regimes are a lot like strong people. They’re self-confident. Because they are, they’re rational and moderate. They can afford to be those things. They have unquestioned legitimacy. Admitting honest mistakes doesn’t threaten them. Why would it? They can tell the truth without fear. Strong regimes are marked by cheerfulness and an open-minded spirit. You know them when you see them. They’re easy to recognize.

Weakness has the opposite effect. Weak leaders live in terror. They lie constantly. They admit nothing. They rule by force because they have no choice. They have lost their legitimacy. When they begin to lose control, as they inevitably do, they panic. Unable to acknowledge the magnitude of their failure, they retreat into delusion. Their behavior becomes irrational. They start to issue bizarre commands.

Nicolai Ceausescu barked orders at his guards as they dragged him into the courtyard to be shot. In his final moments on earth, Ceausescu seemed convinced he could make his executioners obey. As his power evaporated, he tried even harder to exert it. So in that way, every collapsing regime is the same. With that in mind, we learned today that in the face of the waning pandemic, the Biden administration will dramatically increase COVID restrictions across the country.


Millions of children will now be required to cover their faces in school — this despite the scientifically established fact that masks pose a far greater threat to children than COVID does. Strictly speaking, as a scientific matter, this is lunacy. But there’s more.

According to an announcement by the CDC this afternoon, the administration will force masks on adults as well — including on people who’ve already been vaccinated. Pause to consider this for a moment. Americans were promised that if they took the vaccines, they could have their lives back. So by the millions, they did that. Now they’ve learned in the clearest possible way that they were lied to. They got their shots, but the Biden Administration has decided to continue to control what they wear, where they go and who they talk to. Why are they doing that? What’s happening here, exactly?

A rational person might conclude there must be something very wrong with the vaccines. Maybe they don’t work as intended. But no. The administration assures us that the vaccines work perfectly. They’re miracle drugs. OK. So why the masks? Peter Doocy of Fox News asked that question in the White House briefing today. Here’s how the Biden administration’s own Baghdad Bob responded:

DOOCY: If it’s a pandemic of the unvaccinated still, then why vaccinated people need to put the masks back on?

JEN PSAKI: …If you are vaccinated, it can save your life. And I think the clear data shows that this pandemic is killing, is hospitalizing, is making people very sick who are not vaccinated. Does that still continue to be the case regardless of what the mask guidance looks like?

PETER DOOCY: If vaccines work…why do people who’ve had the........
