The Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson recently exposed a coronavirus double standard that is taking place here in the United States under the Biden administration.
According to Carlson, this double standard is meant “to humiliate you and demoralize you.”
The one standard
Carlson began the segment by highlighting coronavirus policy changes that have occurred since Biden has taken office.
One such change, Carlson noted, is the requirement by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that all “air passengers” entering the United States provide a negative COVID-19 test before boarding a plane. Another change is that travelers, these same travelers that have already provided a negative COVID-19 test, are required to wear facemasks or face a steep fine and possibly even a lifetime ban on air travel.
Carlson also briefly brought up how Democratic leadership in many states have kept schools closed, shut businesses down, and have enacted social distancing rules that have kept loved ones apart.
This, Carlson emphasized, is all done for our own safety. Or, at least, so they say.
The other standard
We already have seen many prominent Democrat leaders breaking their own coronavirus restrictions. Carlson briefly mentioned this, but what he really focused on was something that is even more troubling: it is the fact that while Americans are being held to the above standard, illegal aliens are being held to a much different one.
Carlson demonstrated this by pointing out that the Biden administration has enacted a catch-and-release policy, and that, at the moment, illegal immigrants are being released into American communities without COVID-19 testing of any kind.
At the same time, President Joe Biden has put into effect a moratorium on the deportation of all illegal aliens, including those “who have been convicted of drug offenses, assault, DUI, money laundering, property crimes, fraud, tax evasion, or who have gang tattoos.”
So much for American safety.
As Carlson put it, “there’s one standard for you, a member of the despised and much-bullied plebe class, and another very different standard for politically favored groups who can do whatever they want.” Carlson finished the segment by asking why this is the case.
Here’s Carlson’s answer:
This isn’t a policy. It’s an act of aggression. It’s designed to humiliate you and demoralize you.
Reckless and destructive immigration policy is the penalty you are paying for your white supremacy. It’s almost too dark to believe that’s their motive, too dark to believe it’s real, but it is.
