Tucker Carlson has consistently questioned the effectiveness of COVID vaccines without evidence. He consistently puts crackpots on his program who make similar assertions - that the vaccines are dangerous. None of these people, Carlson included, have any evidence to support their assertions.
This is extremely dangerous and has clearly influenced his audience, who express skepticism and outright unwillingness to get the vaccine. That unwillingness translates directly into death and delays our ability as a society to get back to normal.
Bottom line, the more people who get the vaccine, the quicker we'll get back to normal. I suspect Carlson himself has received the vaccine, but is merely using his platform to create controversy.
If you have evidence the vaccine doesn't work, then by all means, it should be presented. However, what Carlson has is conspiracy theories and baseless assertions based on nothing.
We're in a crisis and people like Carlson who willfully endanger the public health and sow baseless chaos should be thrown in jail.
I trusted 6 vaccines from my worldwide travels. Just not the 20 years under development covid vaccine. From the wealthiest pharmaceutical corporations who leading the worldwide charge. Their prescription drugs are thd fourth leading cause of death in the world.
Overall, 74 percent of people said they had general reactions after their Moderna shot, compared with 64 percent of people getting Pfizer / BioNTech.Apr. 7, 2021
I had no reaction or sickness from my 6 vaccines, something is going on around here.
Have not ever harmed anyone in my life. Why would I be dangerous for refusing what gose into my own body? I'm not the only one. About 750 million dose have been taken, only 15 billion to a 100 billion doses to go.
"Why would I be dangerous for refusing what gose into my own body?"
You have to know the answer; because you endanger others around you if you get COVID. There's always a first time for hurting someone, whether you intend it or were careless. Or even if you refuse simple, safe precautions.
We really don't know how much harm the vaccines are going to do. With 15 billion or 100 doses to go. As a senior why would I screw up a perfect record of no harm. Yet they give a President a nobel peace prize for killing millions of poor people.
I would rather catch the covid than given a forced covid vaccines mandated from the Government.
If I do catch covid I will stay at home. Or wear a proper respiratory, not a useless dirty mask.
That looks a lot like the argument that will be made when such vaccines become mandatory and government enforced.
"You do not have a right to endanger others, therefore you will take the vaccine, regardless of any side effects, regardless of the detriment to your own health and wellbeing."
Those who do not, will have income and the ability to travel stripped from them.
Interesting. Republicans complain about wanting to get things back to normal and open up the country, but don't want to do the basic things necessary to make that happen, like wear masks and get vaccinated.
Imagine if people had your attitude regarding the Polio vaccine. In fact, why don't we just get rid of all vaccines, 20th century's biggest scientific accomplishment?
Vaccines have never been enforced, but they're a good idea if you don't want to die or get a life-altering disease. I suppose we can have all the unvaccinated kids go to their own school and see how that works out for them and their parents.
Honestly, vaccines for virus or any other infections are a good idea. Interestly, the covid19 vaccine has come under the hammer of some because of the short period it took to create and manufacture the drug. More interesting is the fact that most of us had no idea of the best practice our scientists and researchers dig into manufacturing the drug. Every drug or vaccine has a short time and long time effect on the human body. The CV19 vaccine is not an exception. Natural herbs used in herbal remedies has been noted for negative side effects if careless. Some foods we eat orange or milk has reactions. Covid vaccine should not be made a scapegoat for those to benefit.
I'm not indoctrinate like most on vaccines and have studied the long history of it with its downside, right now covid is the riskiest . My practice and circle has had greater result in alternative holistic medicines and organic foods and working with better immune system rather than synthetic medicine.
Vaccination is a barbarous practice and one of the most fatal of all the delusions current in our time. Conscientious objectors to vaccination should stand alone, if need be, against the whole world, in defense of their conviction.”
Assuming you mean the COVID vaccine is the riskiest (of all vaccines? Between the disease and the vaccine?), what is the risk? What are the possibilities (beyond a sore arm), what is the probability of having those possibilities, and what is both the long and short term of those possibilities?
Sore arm lol, more like a genocide we have not seen.
1. My immune system is most amazing after touring 4 and half continent's.
2 i have 1 in 2400 chance of catching covid on a global scale.
3 simply humanity impossible to vaccinate every human being and all species of animals since 70% viruses come from animal.
4. My area has the best covid provention in the world.
5. Vaccines are only 90 to 94% effective with many side effects
6 If in a snowball chance in hell, I catch it. I got 99.98 chance of survival
None of which has anything to do with risks of the COVID vaccine, which is what I ask about.
Its gone from covid to vaccine or you may not work or travel.
I'm saying my immune system is less a risk than the vaccine. Plenty of people are dieing from the vaccines
"Plenty of people are dieing from the vaccines"
There is the risk I ask for. Now, how many died from COVID vaccines and how many died from COVID? If the first is less than the second, then it is a good bet, and the risk is less than the disease.
Let's assume that 6 months is allow to observe the side effects of the vaccine jab. The death rate would still be lower. Vaccines, like any other OTC drugs has side effects. But death is hardly envisage by scientists and researchers when inventing a vaccine.
Heath officials provided an update on the state’s virus numbers Wednesday, highlighting that Michigan has the most cases and highest case rate in the country.
In addition to cases, deaths, and hospital bed utilization are also increasing.
The number of positive cases is up 348% since a low on Feb. 19, while the case rates are up 375%.
In the past seven days, Michigan has risen to the No. 1 spot for cases and case rates, up from the second highest in previous weeks
J&J the largest producer of vaccines were stopped for blood clot issues. I don't have the time to go through across the country that has too many reports of within mostly hidden.
I can agree with you that persons with sickle cell disease can have a problem or two with the vaccine shot. The same persons were also having problem with other drugs like malaria drugs. It's a pity.
Mosquitoes cause at least 2.7 million deaths every year. That's simular to covid deaths, but who cares.
Who cares? Could you be any more callous?
I don't understand your logic.
When covid is not in the top ten ways to die, isn't that more insensitive to the ten other greater ways to die?
Since death is the end all.
Well said. And you hit the nail right on the head.
I care. I likewise realise that OTC drugs has yet to solve the more than two million deaths annually. Can our scientific researchers try to invent a vaccine for the various frequent malaria fever? I care. I realise also that fishermen like me on a night fishing trip saw and experienced a mosquito bite in they wild state. I care to patronized herbal remedies that works best. OTC drugs can't go to the root and attack the malarial parasites. So I care to make my herbal remedy with wives' simple kikchen ingredients as base. Seriously, my stand is that of a preventive nature. I did not believe in buying mosquito insecticides. It's jurst a waste of money. So I care to prepare mine and sleep under a mosquito net with my family. Bill Gate try to solve the malaria problem in Africa with his money. But it fail woefully.
Last I heard the incidence of blood clots was the same for people that didn't have the vaccine. That you think there are many, many more reports that are "hidden" somehow doesn't impress much.
Just wait for 10s of billions of vaccines doses to hit the body.
The end of the world, will not be like, what most of the world would think. It will be the end of the debt and bribery system. Or the monetary currency systems, The horrible medical profession and etc.
More of a greater abuse is yet to come.
A survey of the concentrations of eleven metals in vaccines, allergenic extracts, toxoids, blood, blood derivatives and other biological products
Which 11 metals are found in the COVID vaccine?
(I would hope there are biological products; it would be exceedingly difficult to convince our immune system there is a valid enemy to attack without having any biologics there. I doubt a platinum ball made to look like a COVID virus would do the trick.)
I'm on the same side as Wilderness! I love this!
Vaccine skepticism is mostly insanity and paranoia and a complete lack of understanding of basic data and science.
LOL Well, you do get the chance to be right sometimes!
Conspiracy theories coupled with misinformation and a lack of understanding of basic statistics/probability plays a big part, too.
Complete stupidity should not allow one the freedom to endanger the lives of others.
I agree, at least to a point. There can be honest, real differences of opinion - for example I believe that there should be a honest attempt to balance store closings (saving lives) with keeping them open (saving livelihoods and lifetimes of effort).
But to claim that vaccines are more dangerous than the disease is not in that realm. And to think it all began with one lying idiot claiming vaccines caused autism.
Well, there's the idiot (Dr. Andrew Wakefield, I believe) and then there are all the idiots who believe that idiot.
Seems like an epidemic itself.
LOL Maybe it is - maybe we really are "dumbing down" as a species. Or as a culture, anyway.
(Actually, that might even be true as many of the evolutionary forces driving increasing intelligence are now missing - now we provide care and support instead of the death nature would offer.)
Gentlemen, pray you count me out.
Castlepaloma, were you all ears? Can you hear?
It's funny its like everyone is an unsured themselves expert of the vaccines are fully safe.
Wail China will win this C19 war. Because they warn all the health conditions towards the vaccines to their citizens they understand it , where Americans ignorance just ignore the warning with a herd onesideness . The Chinese is next the 21st super power by default of bio C19 ignorance.
I look now as covid as a good thing. After the great abuse of covid and their vaccines its the end of the world. End of the leading cause of death the medical profession. End of the bribery and debt system. End of the monetary currency systems. Feel like an opti-holic again.
"Everyone in America is declaring that the vaccines are fully safe."
But China is telling their people to "Beware!"
... so its the end of the "medical profession, bribery and debt system, monetary system."
Does opti-holic = optimism-holic?
... and how does the future look in Your Crystal Ball, once its the End of the World, (as we know it)?
I'm good to go with you and Wilderness. The basic lack of understanding a balance knowledge of a vaccine make me question if such persons are members of a sect or Jehovah Witness. Or do they stand alone as individuals?
Stop wasting your time, Wilderness. These people are loony tunes. If not for vaccines, many of them wouldn't be around to make these idiotic arguments.
There are vaccines and there are vaccines. The new type of RNA antibody vaccine being shot into everyone's arms are different from what has been used previously and we don't know much about it. So, those people who are taking this type of vaccine are willing guinea pigs.
On top of that, vaccines are preserved with mercury or aluminum and the consequence of taking too many vaccines at one time, (as kids are required to do, just to get into public school,) is a high level of metal in the bloodstream, which causes Autism, whether we want to admit it or not.
You are cuckoo, don't know what you're talking about, and peddling falsehoods.
https://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/conce … index.html
The biggest difference between me and many
Onesidedness supporters of the 1% pharmaceutical vaccines . Is that they clearly don't understand a person like me who is not against anything. Being against someone or thing is part of the problem and not the solution. I constantly give solutions, yet if the persons mind set is against an events or the person personally they opposed it goes nowhere. Then ideas won't process or progress into solutions. Many here call me an anti vaxxer. There starts the endless vicious cycle of ideas stops, then over focus on being against the event and person that ends up solving nothing all over again and can't get out their mind limited box.
Interestingly and enlighten link indeed. I found it a good read and and informative. However, vaccines as an integral part of peoples health program facilitate wellness or wellbeing. Apart from a vaccine's soft spot of minor side effects as experienced by those taking the shot, with one exception of a male who took the polio jab some 60 years, and now still critiaally ill, there's no serious death issue. More over, I would not fail to take a vaccine injection at a pandemic period like this. I had a strong immune system and that will boost my immunity further.
I suppose you had something more to share about this. Or you didn't support the vaccine jab? It's high time scientists look for an alternative to preserve vaccines. Mercury has never be a good friend to the human body.
Yes, a 11 difference kinds of metals within the vaccines. Far too many unknowns ingredients in the vaccines controlled by the largest corporations in the world. Makes me mistrustful and as most people know deep down. On the surface they are mass hypnotizes.
I believe it is high time that a law is put out to state all the ingredients that goes into a vaccine. If they can do that on food labels, same can go for drugs and vaccines.
Because I'm sure average people would understand why those ingredients are in there and wouldn't search the internet to find conspiracy theories about why stuff is bad for them.
That's awful. And the government seems to take advantage of average Joe.
Go to each vaccine manufacturer website for those answers. That is what I did.
IT'S NOT THAT MERCURY. Go read the link.
I read and re-read it. It's a sub unit of mercury with differing degree of potency. Althought mercury exists naturally, ethyl mercury is create in the lab, right?
I watch Tucker. I got the vaccine. You might notice that not everyone are lemmings, like many on the left are. You can hear a person's view without embracing it.
Also, only the left want to see people imprisoned if they disagree with them.
Good for you. Sure, WE'RE lemmings. Sure. Carlson isn't expressing a viewpoint. He's yelling fire in a crowded theater and endangering public health. He's doing more damage than some guy shooting people in a theater or a supermarket. Maybe we shouldn't imprison those people either. After all, a gunman is just expressing his views.
How is Tucker Carlson different from a gunman who opens fire on people? He's peddling provable falsehoods, convincing people who watch him that the vaccine is dangerous. He's been advocating for people not to wear masks.
I wonder how many people Carlson is indirectly responsible for killing - those who believed him, got COVID, and died.
I have yet to meet anyone that can deny the truth of a bullet as it enters their chest. People are responsible for their own beliefs regardless of who promoted them.
Seems awful. It's a sort of double agent doing covert practice.
Lol. He's doing more damage than some guy shooting people in a theater or a supermarket.
Words wouldn't hurt me, yet machine guns will tear me apart.
According to WHO, prescription drug deaths don't even rank in the top 10, and #4 is actually Lower Respiratory Infections.
I will trust Harvard over FDA
Prescription drugs a major health risk, ranking 4th with stroke as a leading cause of death. The European Commission estimates that adverse reactions from prescription drugs cause 200,000 deaths; so together, about 328,000 patients in the U.S. and Europe die from prescription drugs each year.
The bottomline is that one has to make a choice between having the vaccine or not. And this brings in a questim of restrictive movement like the Biblical: "I am a leper. I am a leper." ladies and gentlemen, is there the need to anmunce your covid19 status?
Today, about 208,000 people worldwide are infected with leprosy, according to WHO.
We learn how to live with trillions of bacteria and microorganism that we humans are mostly made of, just having another human experiences.
It would be nice to think we can fight off this virus naturally.
But, apparently, not all of us can.
... and that is a pity.
So, If a vaccine can help those who cannot fight off the Covid 19 virus naturally ... Well, good.
But in my mind,
With you on this one. Its seem we are oppressed down to the 10% way of thinking by the dictatorship of the herd mental machine.
... when herd immunity would have occurred WITHOUT all this overreaction.
Yes, the fear and onesideness has not been ever this grand in human history. This abuse will really change the world up. Finally more optimistic this abuse will cause the pendulum to swing the other way.
Yes, not all can fight off the virus. That's a pity. And they're those that can't understand the covid19 pandemic. Likewise that's a pity also. And what about those hard against the covid vaccine? Again, what a pity. More so, as live-to-learn and Wilderness has held, they's some level of 'insanity' with such people that they can't see some good in certain things. D'you see a mad person putting on a mask as face cover in the street? I do. Such should copy that and isolate themselves.
live-to-learn and Wilderness holds a belief that the system has the power to control everything. When it is your mind, body and consciousness that controls your own being and soul, not the outer persona
Almost everytime I put on a mask I almost feel like a criminal ready to rob someone. It's most important we breathe well for a much better wave for our immune system.
But why the fun besides the reality?
Yes, I was in a bank doing some business on an account I'd had for several years. The employee who knew me laughed when I said, "If I'd come in here last year wearing a red bandana over my face, you'd have called the police on me."
She replied, "now they are telling you to."
So, what difference dose that make?
Sorry, American humor. At one time bandanas were worn by bandits to cover their faces, especially Old West bank robbers. (Watch an old western movie or a Spaghetti Western). At the start of the pandemic, the CDC was telling us to wear bandanas on our faces if we didn't have a mask. Masks were scarce then, and the government was trying to reserve them for medical workers.
How then one differentiate a thief from the good citizen?
Its in the eyes.
The thief has shifty eyes that dart back and forth, looking front, side, and behind ... looking for things to steal, or people to rob, looking for those who would catch him in the act.
Yes, just look at the eyes.
The good citizen generally hangs his head as he plods through market places and streets. He appears deep in thought, probably reminiscing the good old days and waiting for them to return. He is not in the present. No, the good citizen does not have shifty eyes, just sad ones.
Did you know that a mouse/rat will die if it eats junk foods quicker than a mouse/rat who doesn't eat at all?
We are in states of ill-health because of our gluttony, ignorance and overly stressful lifestyles.
Healthy people will get the virus, experience (or not) the symptoms, fight it off with rest and proper natural treatment. Then their bodies will produce anti-bodies within the plasma.
Un-healthy people will reap the consequences of their over-eating, consuming non-nutritious foods, a lack of exercise and genetic or age-related weaknesses.
We gotta learn how to be healthy.
Its like when I grow a strong stock plant with fresh oxygen, good nutrition and good water. Then the plants health is best to fight off any bugs or diseases comes its way.
People ask how we would survive without the normal covid world order.
We hug, shake hands, don't wear mask and sing.
You can shove your covid normal up your A$$.
Thank you for the enlighten information. I hope others do copy soon. I'm completely off junk foods to keep my body in harmony with nature. I stretch and exercise. In two or few articls, I advice people to do the same.
I think of healthy food is true Gods. As we are what we eat. Or like a computer as most people energy is low of 60% charged batteries from junky foods.
D'you believe in a God or gods? A food like Indian corn can represent a god or eaten. Which d'you copy? Seriously, may I ask: d'you have a religion? Have a God? D'you call upon him? Does he hears you?
Like Einstein I'm not into personal Gods of conflict. Do connect with reincarnation where greens end goal is to be eaten and transform into higher energy beautiful beings. The 5% indigenous people are the earth's care takers for 80% of the world, and you have them too.
I’ve never heard of Tucker Carlson, but then being across the pond in the UK, that’s no surprise. Fortunately (for whatever reason) the UK has one of the lowest covid vaccine hesitancy in the world; the uptake for the covid vaccine in the UK for those who are currently entitled to have the vaccine is over 95% (that includes everyone in the UK over the age of 45, health workers and clinically vulnerable from regardless to age).
Consequently, with almost 63% of the adult population in the UK having now been vaccinated the death toll has plummeted from its height of over 1,000 deaths a day just a few months ago to just a trickle of daily deaths e.g. just 4 deaths earlier this week. So with a highly successful vaccination programme the UK is getting tantalising close to coming to a ‘post pandemic’ normality e.g. the UK Government’s target is to remove ‘all’ covid-safe restrictions (such as social distancing and mask wearing etc.) by the 21st June, on the assumption that by that date the pandemic will be all but over in the UK (based on current scientific evidence/data).
Out of the tens of millions of people in the UK who have had the vaccine, mostly the AstraZeneca Oxford University Vaccine, after the initial 4 week period for the vaccine to take full effect none have died of covid, and only 7 have died of blood clots, which is below the national average for deaths from blood clots anyway (regardless to whether you take the vaccine or not); and also, the risk of dying from blood clots caused by contracting covid-19 is far higher anyway.
Most conspiracy theories downplay the death rate, falsely claiming it to be just 0.1%. The reality, based on data compiled in the UK, is that if you contract covid, the death rate is currently 0.9% (slightly better than 1 in 100) which considering how contagious the virus is, is a high death toll.
So there is no doubt whatsoever that the covid vaccines are saving tens of thousands of lives; and that:-
(a) People who don’t get vaccinated are putting not just themselves but also others at risk, and
(b) People like Tucker Carlson, who spreads anti-vax conspiracies are themselves causing the death of many people by discouraging them from protecting themselves and others from serious illness and death by refusing to get vaccinated.
Also, a point that consistently gets over looked in these discussion is that about 10% of people who contract covid end up suffering long term illness; aka “Covid Long Haulers”.
Authur, one salient thing I notice from your post... I think the jab is increasing longivity of the elderly? As the mask wearing and social distancing an innovative of the covid19 prevent more flu cases, the vaccine shot has much more to offer modern man regardless of age.
Israel has given at least one jab to more than half its population, earning the title of most vaccinated country on Earth. By comparison, the United States has vaccinated about 10 percent of its population.
While Israel races ahead on putting shots in arms, the country is also seeing a spike in cases, with almost 74 out of every 100,000 Israelis testing positive for the virus, compared to about 40 out of every 100,000 Americans.
When asked about the seemingly contradictory puzzle
Almost 60 percent of Israel’s population has received at least one shot
Why is it contradictory at all when the vast majority of Israelis have not completed the vaccination program? They should expect growing numbers, not the opposite!
Israel has reached their herd immunity. As for the rest of the world the same time last spring. The covid cases are alot higher now this spring regardless of mass vaccines roll outs. It won't work for the flu in my lifetime has killed 60, 70times greater than covid. For greater than that there are a many more greater ways to die all surrpressed.
Trump sounds more intelligent now then he did before, and i do not like the guy.
'Trump sounds more intelligent now...' Why and how?
Him personally, his body and toward the natural environment worst than anybody I could imagine. Mainly got voted in by white Christian dominated
Although has been a loose connon a whistle blower to the collapsed babble, monotary currency. The over obsession with the covid. Americas producing their own products at home.
Only want Governments to take care of small stuff or they are a waste of time.
You mean the grassroot?
The public is the grass roots.
You don'ts want Government getting too creative or they turn into fake Gods and fake foods.
The people through out history have always been the true leaders. Not Government. Grass root people lead the positive changes.
