Fox News host Tucker Carlson urged his viewers to not let their children wear masks when outside and even went on to label it "child abuse". He told viewers to call the police or Child Protective Services if they see a masked child outdoors. As soon as his statement came to light, people started slamming him for "harassing" people for wearing masks.

On Monday, April 26, in his show 'Tucker Carlson Tonight' the host referenced statements made by Dr Mary Harrow. Harrow, a general practitioner, told the Colorado Springs School District 11 Board of Education last week that face masks can "cause low oxygen and high carbon dioxide levels, shortness of breath, toxicity, inflammation, increased stress hormones and sugar in the body, and create fear, anxiety, headaches, compromised cognitive performance and other problems".

'Masks have always been incompatible with a free society'

Commenting on this, Carlson said: "Your response when you see children wearing masks as they play should be no different from your response to seeing someone beat a kid at Walmart. Call the police. Immediately contact Child Protective Services. Keep calling until someone arrives. What you're looking at is abuse... it's child abuse, and you are morally obligated to attempt to prevent it." He compared forcing school children to wear masks with adults punching them in the face. He later compared people wearing face masks after being vaccinated to grown men who expose themselves in public.

“Masks have always been incompatible with a free society,” he fumed. “We used to know that. Masks strip people of their identity as individuals, transform people from citizens into drones. They isolate us and alienate us to shut us off from one another, they prevent intimacy and human contact. If I can’t see your face, I can’t know you.” Stating that a large number of liberals suffer from an “actual mental health condition” because a recent Pew survey demonstrates that they are critical of others who don’t mask up near them, Carlson called on his audience to instead openly mock mask-wearers in public.

'Restore the society we were born in'

“The rest of us should be snorting at them first. They’re the aggressors. It’s our job to brush them back and restore the society we were born in,” he said. “So the next time you see someone in a mask on the sidewalk or on the bike path, do not hesitate. Ask politely but firmly, ‘Would you please take off your mask? Science shows there is no reason for you to be wearing it. Your mask is making me uncomfortable.’” He added: “We should do that and we should keep doing it until wearing a mask outside is roughly as socially accepted as lighting a Marlboro on an elevator. It’s repulsive. Don’t do it around other people. That’s the message we should send because it’s true.”

As soon as his comments came to light, people started talking about it on Twitter. One user said, "Tucker Carlson is now telling his audience to harass people who wear face masks outside. If they see children wearing masks, Tucker says the response should be no different than when you see a kid being abused — "call the police immediately, contact child protective services"" Another one said, "So wearing a mask to protect against Covid is abuse, but unmasking and potentially exposing to Covid isn't abuse. Can we please get Fox ripped off the air."



 



 

James Morrison said, "Harass my son, a cancer survivor with a compromised immune system, for wearing his mask outside and it'll be the last person you harass. Not a threat. A promise." Another user posted, "@verizonfios How do I remove @FoxNews from my package? I do not want a single penny of my hard-earned money to go towards this pompous, lying, dangerous buffoon. #TuckerMustGo."

'The guy is a dangerous violent bigot'

Soon, more people were adamant on removing Fox from their cable TV system. One said, "I would like the same from @DIRECTV The first system that pulls Fox gets my money. People who are harassed for wearing masks, let alone their children harassed, need to sue Carlson and @FoxNews alike. Let's sue em until they bleed money." Not just that, another user tweeted: "I hope no one's injured because of the diarrhea that's coming from Tucker Carlson's mouth. Keep wearing masks, indoors and outdoors. Oh and by the way, if you're dumb enough to listen to Tucker Carlson I have some swamp land to sell you. #TuckerMustGo."

One Twitter user said, "Tucker Carlson’s comments today were just too far. The guy is a dangerous violent bigot who is going to get someone killed #FireTucker We will not make any progress on extremism until something is done about Fox News #FoxIsNotNews #TuckerMustGo." Another said, "#FireTuckerCarlson It's so dangerous to tell people to call authorities for literally protecting our kids from a pan(d)emic."
