Far-right Fox News host Tucker Carlson has been one of the most vocal promoters of disinformation regarding the pandemic that's killed over 600 thousand Americans and the lifesaving vaccines for the virus, which have are proven to be safe and effective.
Now, he's defending felonies to his millions of viewers.
With free vaccines widely available in every state for months now, a number of municipalities and private businesses have begun requiring vaccinations for certain spaces, such as gyms and bars. Requiring vaccines has significantly loosened the urgency of safety precautions that were vital at the height of the pandemic.
Rather than getting the free vaccine, a number of willfully unvaccinated people have begun purchasing fake vaccination cards to infiltrate vaccinated-only spaces. Thousands of these cards were recently confiscated by Customs and Border Protection.
Nevertheless, Carlson defended these felons to his unvaccinated viewers.
"Buying a fake vaccination card is not a, quote, 'serious crime.' It's not even close to a serious crime. Buying a fake vaccination card is an act of desperation by decent, law-abiding Americans who have been forced into a corner by tyrants."
His latest deranged screed made waves across social media.
Nevermind that, by definition, people who buy fake vaccination cards are not "law-abiding Americans," as Carlson claimed.
It's unclear how many of Carlson's viewers will buy fake vaccination cards, considering themselves martyrs along the way.
