In response to a Democrat congressperson accusing Christians of weaponizing religion to avoid vaccine mandates, Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Wednesday that it is Democrats who are weaponizing public health to force people to comply with their wishes.
Carlson played a video clip of Rep. Cindy Axne (D-IA) saying that the “Christian right is, you know, everything under the guise while they hold a cross and you know for God or whatever and they use it like a weapon, and it’s painful to watch because they’ve weaponized religion, they’ve weaponized politics.”
Carlson pointed out that the current $3.5 trillion spending bill up for passage in Congress now includes fines of $700,000 per employee on companies that fail to comply with the COVID vaccine mandate.
He also pointed to threats by New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio to take away people’s paychecks “for an extended period of time” or even their jobs if they don’t comply with the city’s mandate.
The Democrat party is going after people who they used at least pretend to care about, many of them lower income hourly health care workers, Carlson pointed out, and that isn’t helping deal with the pandemic surge currently going on right now.
