Oh, look at that! Someone on the censorious Left wants someone they disagree with silenced. Shocker.
Chelsea Clinton, who only has a platform because of who her parents are, wants a social media giant to ban the wildly popular Fox News host, Tucker Carlson because she’s a now vaccine advocate or something and she thinks he’s spreading disinformation about the vaccine.
Here’s what happened…
On a Tuesday evening segment, Tucker Carlson was talking about the horrible messaging from the “medical experts” who have had mixed messaging from the very onset and it’s not getting any better over a year into this pandemic.
The only video that I could find of Tucker’s Tuesday monologue, unfortunately, do not have the remarks that Chelsea Clinton found objectionable, but you’ll get the context.
Tucker Carlson on the medical establishment's horrible messaging regarding vaccines and the whole point (or so we thought) – a return to normalcy.

It was just after this that Carlson said The Thing That Must Not Be Said, “If the vaccine is effective, there is no reason for people who have received the vaccine to wear masks or avoid physical contact. So maybe it doesn’t work and they’re simply not telling you that.”
Well, all hell broke loose.
Saint Fauci, Peace Be Upon Him, upped the ante on Wednesday morning calling Carlson’s statement a “crazy conspiracy theory.”

"That is just a typical crazy conspiracy theory. Why would we not tell people if it doesn't work? Look at the data." pic.twitter.com/jPtwfsG4PC

CNN — in typical CNN fashion — took the statement out of any sort of context and ran with it.
Tucker Carlson was asking why fully-vaccinated people need to continue to follow all of the same COVID public health measures as those who have not been vaccinated.
Is it not a reasonable question? Vaccines are given to prevent you from contracting an illness. We are told that at least two of the vaccines in use in the United States are over 90% effective, so why can vaccinated people return to normal life and take off the damned masks? Even if you wait two weeks or so for full efficacy, medical “experts” like Fauci are still advocating for masking, distancing, and hand-washing. Heck, Dr. Fauci still wears a mask! Why? He’s fully vaccinated.
But asking questions from our health officials who are the ones driving vaccine skepticism is not permitted.
Chelsea Clinton is calling on Facebook to ban Fox News host Tucker Carlson from the platform following a surge in online engagement with a post that included the conservative television personality’s speculation on the effectiveness of coronavirus vaccines…
…According to data from the social media tool CrowdTangle, Carlson’s segment had become the most popular post on Facebook by Wednesday.
In response, Clinton tweeted, “In December, @facebook banned claims about #covid19 vaccines ‘that have been debunked by public health experts.’”
Clinton added that the attention to Carlson’s segment was “especially troubling given Republican men are currently most likely to say they’re not interested in being vaccinated.”

Here’s Clinton’s tweet calling for censorship of Carlson who was saying that the “medical experts” are the ones undermining their own credibility.
In December, @facebook banned claims about #covid19 vaccines “that have been debunked by public health experts.” And yet ⬇️. Especially troubling given Republican men are currently most likely to say they’re not interested in being vaccinated. https://t.co/NHWwn8vQ31

On Wednesday night, Tucker explained that he wasn’t pushing “disinformation” he was asking questions rooted in science. He says that the only reason that he’s asking the questions is because “the people in charge are acting like it doesn’t work.”
Tucker Carlson responds to Fauci: "If this stuff works, why can't you live like it works? Why are you wearing a mask? Why can’t you eat in a restaurant? And if it doesn’t prevent you from catching the coronavirus, why are we taking it in the first place? Both can't be true." ? pic.twitter.com/aRpmKizjPM

All Tucker Carlson wants are honest answers, and leftists that want you vaccinated but refuse to give you freedom afterward, want him taken down, but not the authoritarian “medical expert” narcissists who are enjoying the limelight a little too much and are sending mixed messages to the American public.
