It seems like Donald Trump’s loss in November hit Tucker Carlson deeply. Every night, the Fox host delves deeper into conspiracy theories and paranoia.
During his Monday night broadcast, Carlson had a breakdown over wearing masks. He urged his viewers to harass people who wear masks outdoors. Worse still, he said people should call child protection services for parents whose children are wearing masks.
The Fox host began: “Masks have always been incompatible with a free society. Masks are for the culprits. They are signs of shame and submission. “
Carlson continued: “The next time you see someone in a mask on the sidewalk or on the bike path, don’t hesitate, ask politely but firmly, would you please take off your mask? Science shows there is no need for you to wear it. Your mask makes me uncomfortable, ”said Carlson. “We should do this, and we should keep doing it until wearing a mask outdoors is about as socially acceptable as lighting a Marlboro in an elevator. It’s repulsive. “

The awkward landlord concluded his chatter:
“Forcing children to wear masks outside should be illegal. Your reaction to seeing children wearing masks while playing shouldn’t be any different from your reaction to someone at Walmart beating a child. Call the police immediately. Contact the child protection service. Keep calling until someone arrives. What you see is abuse, it is child abuse, and you have a moral obligation to try to prevent it from happening. “
