Tucker Carlson: Schools are creating tribalism in our kids

'Tucker Carlson Tonight' host examines forcing kids to wear masks and indoctrination in academia

It’s mid-August, summer's almost over, amazingly enough. Kids are going to resume their education not just in this country, but around the world. In Ireland, as kids began to return to school authorities faced a choice. Now, the most obvious course would be to blindly accept guidance from self-described public health experts in the United States. That's what many countries have done as they sought to come up with a COVID policy. And, following the United States would mean, among other things, forcing children as young as two to wear moist paper burkas for eight hours a day in the classroom. The other option would be to follow the science, and the Irish chose that course.

The Irish commissioned their own research on masks. And here's what they found: According to the Irish Health Authority, masking children in the classroom is not a legitimate medical precaution. It's child abuse. Masks can, "exacerbate anxiety and breathing difficulties." They impair, "the development of human communication and language skills, particularly for very young children."

Now, we know from previous research the masks can also contribute to high levels of carbon dioxide in the human body, and that's especially true in children. Masks often become breeding grounds for dangerous bacteria. That's conclusive in the studies. It's possible that masks even affect facial development. In other words, there are very serious downsides to forcing masks on children. The question is, what's the benefit of doing it?


The Irish government looked into it and decided there is no benefit. Kids in Ireland are not getting sick from COVID. They are not transmitting COVID either. So in the end, based on the scientific research using the disappearing art of rational decision making, the Irish government refused to implement mask mandates in school.

It's an interesting story. Have you heard that story? Maybe not. Maybe telling you what's happening in Ireland could raise uncomfortable questions here, such as why are we doing the opposite in the United States? Why are we forcing masks on children? What data are we using to justify that decision?

Well, it turns out we don't have any data to justify it. As of today, there has not been a single comprehensive study in the United States showing that children should wear masks in school or that masks would help them or anyone else in any way. What do we have then?

Well, the closest thing we have to research is an op-ed that just ran in the renowned medical journal known as The New York Times, which you can buy from homeless people in Penn Station if you want to take a look. That article was written by two people from Duke University in North Carolina. Here's the headline. You may have seen it. "We studied one million students, universal masking works." That sounds definitive. A million students. That's a major study. We're impressed.

But there was one skeptical man out there, a journalist called David Zweig, who wanted........
