Carlson defends vaccination position after Durbin calls out ‘anti-vax quacks’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson is no stranger to controversy, something he proved again this week when he took a few moments to fire back at some of his critics.

As Mediaite reported, the issue arose on Monday after Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin (D) used the Senate floor to attack what he labeled “anti-vax quacks,” singling out Carlson and fellow Fox host Laura Ingraham by name.

“They have been spreading what I consider to be irresponsible information about vaccines across America, and about the effort of this nation to deal with them,” Durbin said.

His attack led to a response from Carlson during his Monday evening broadcast in which he mentioned the Tuskegee syphilis experiments, which involved denying medical care to Black patients in order to study how syphilis would affect them.

No judgment from Tucker

“Now, we don’t judge anybody for taking or refusing to take the vaccine,” Carlson said. “Medical choices are by definition personal choices.

“They are not choices that politicians get to make for you and you should never be forced to take a medicine you don’t want. Period,” the highly-rated Fox host added.

“Many of the people like Dick Durbin, who are attacking anyone who has questions as partisan or racist, are the very same people who told us for decades they were very upset about the Tuskegee syphilis experiments, and they had right to be upset about those experiments.”

Carlson added: “Now, they are telling us, anyone who resists mandatory vaccination is a white supremacist. This is the talking point of the moment.”

Tucker raises questions

The Fox News host went on to take aim at certain members of the Republican Party, including Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who was quoted by Mediate as having told CNN that his “party has been hijacked.”

After accusing Kinzinger of having “a low IQ,” Carlson remarked that “neither he nor anyone else who is making that case has answered a very simple question: why should people who have recovered from COVID-19 — and there are millions of them in this country — who are immune to the virus, why should they be forced to get the vaccine?”

Also on Carlson’s hit list was Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R), a politician that the Fox host denounced as a “mediocrity” for promoting the idea that every member of the public needs to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

The host concluded his segment by asking, “Does extremism apply to people who have questions about the vaccine?” Carlson answered his own question, saying, “Of course, it does.”

  11. What a crock, durbin you commie dems are destroying America and lying to everyone including yourself. Total scum

  12. Has EVERONE forgotten that the FDA has SPECIFICALLY identified ALL of the COVID-19 “vaccines” as EXPERIMENTAL???? So, “Sleepy Joe” is ORDERING EVERYONE to become a “guinea pig”———so HE can feel good and boast about it!!!!!!! I’m vaccinated———but with the PRIOR disclosure that NOONE KNOWS how effective it is———OR for how long it lasts!!! Unlike Phizer or Moderna——-MY vaccine is offered as part of a TWO-YEAR STUDY to determine effectiveness and longevity of this medication!!! The rest of the “Vaccine makers” HAVEN’T BOTHERED TO ENGAGE IN THIS ACTIVITY!!!!!
    Look in the mirror people——there’s a “sucker” staring you in the face!!!!!

  13. Durbin is just so angry that those that question the vax or decided not to chance being part of the experiment have a thinking and discerning mind! He and his party want everyone to be mindless drones that will listen to anything they tell us. What he and his party want is totally unimportant in my life.
