Ending covid restrictions: It’s not science, it’s politics

How do we prevent future mass hysteria events in the United States? And the answer is very simple — you restore democracy.

Tucker looks back on the tyrannical lockdowns and mandates imposed during the past two years, and forward to how we can prevent it from happening again.

“It’d be pretty fascinating to see the democratic party’s latest internal polling on covid restrictions. We haven’t seen it, but it must have been pretty awful, apocalyptic, because something spooked them, bad.”

“Over the course of less than a week, the same people who’ve systematically turned America into a quarantine camp suddenly, out of nowhere, started calling in unison for medical freedom … pretty much all of them.”

“You should know this virus was killed, not by ‘science,’ but by the midterm elections. It turns out the only real cure for covid-19 is the political ambition of the democratic party. That’s the panacea.”

“And, by the way, that’s fine, we’ll take it.”

“We’re celebrating, but we’re also looking forward, and the question is how do we guarantee that nothing like this ever happens again? How do we prevent future mass hysteria events in the United States? And the answer is very simple — you restore democracy.”

“You give Americans a voice in the policies that affect their lives. That was the system that we had for a couple of hundred years. It’s a pretty good system, we ought to go back to it. If elected legislators were allowed to vote on covid restrictions, we’d have far fewer covid restrictions.”

“Checks and balances exist for a reason. We saw this all over the country. Governors and local officials abusing their authority, very specifically to stop Christians from attending church, prevent people from worshiping their God, from exercising their religion.”

“And somehow nobody noticed. But voters noticed.”

“Meanwhile, the CDC still requires US citizens to get a negative covid test in order to return to their own country.”

“So, the CDC has the power to bar you from your own country? Really? Where did they get that power? Anyone at the CDC elected? I don’t think so, they’re a bunch of incompetent public health administrators. How, by the way, has the Biden administration announced plans to lift the mask mandate on airplanes. Now, why would the Biden administration be in charge of that? Shouldn’t Congress make that call? They’re the ones who voted for that mandate. Oh no, but they didn’t. Congress never voted on that mandate, the agencies imposed it.”

Tucker: Where’s the Christian concern?

I’m only suggesting that one factor that Christians use to assess the behavior of their government and other governments ought to be the treatment of Christians. It ought to be, why is it not?

Tucker questions why American churches seem to have little concern for or knowledge of what’s happening to their fellow Christians around the world. Highlights include:

“Christians can absolutely get it wrong, and do. They can follow the wrong path, they can be mistaken, they can be silly and profane, they can commit the worst sins imaginable, but the one thing they cannot do is be afraid, period. And so, boldness… is not just this added extra, it’s a baseline requirement for following the gospel, and if you’re not doing that, you’re not doing it right. So, that’s the first thing, don’t be afraid. The second thing I notice in reading Paul’s letters is his deep concern for his fellow Christians.”

“I’m only suggesting that one factor that Christians use to assess the behavior of their government and other governments ought to be the treatment of Christians. It ought to be, why is it not?”

“We’re funding the Islamists who are killing the Christians – did anyone know that? No, of course not, churches never talk about it, that’s true. Are we for that? I’m not for that… Why doesn’t somebody stand up and say, ‘Wait a second, we’re funding the killing of Christians? No, I’m a Christian, I’m against that.”

“The conflict between Russia and Ukraine? Super complicated. I don’t think there’s an easy answer, I don’t think there’s a ‘good guy’ and a ‘bad guy’… and the more I learn about it, the more I’m confused. I’m certainly not endorsing Russia… But, one of the guides that we as Christians should use to assess that situation is, how do Christians fare in those countries? It’s totally legitimate to ask that question. Is it easier to be a Christian in Russia or Ukraine?”

“One of those countries just arrested a bunch of priests and shut down churches with political police and the army. It wasn’t Russia. I raised that question at a Christian gathering, people scowled at me. Really? They’re arresting priests? I don’t need to know more.”

Tucker: Viktor Orbán on Ukraine, Russia and Hungary

If any western country would send any boots on the ground, that would mean a direct war between the west and Russia.

Published

Tucker and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán talk about the war in Ukraine, how Americans are being lied to about it, and about Hungary’s success as a nation. Highlights include:

“As the war in Ukraine completely reshuffles the world order and threatens to destroy human civilization, it’s striking just how little information Americans are receiving about what happens there. The nation of Hungary shares a border with Ukraine. Its leader, Viktor Orbán, the nation’s longest serving Prime Minister, has been dealing with the Russians all of his life. He grew up under Russian occupation. As a young man, he was arrested and thrown in to jail by Russian-backed police for his efforts to liberate the country. In his Prime Ministry, he’s dealt regularly with Vladimir Putin, whose nation supplies Hungary with most of its energy. Viktor Orbán understands Russian and Ukraine. So, two years after we last spoke to him, we returned to Hungry to sit down with Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and ask him, what exactly is happening in Ukraine right now?

“When you speak on politics in Russian … the number one issue, how to keep together the country… Freedom is just another issue, second, third, whatever. First, keep the country together, and that’s generated a different kind of culture and understanding of politics. That’s creating a kind of military approach, like they have.”

“They will not kill their leader, they will never give it up, they will keep together the country [sic] and they will defend it. We finance more, they will invest more. If we send more technical equipment, they will produce more. So, don’t misunderstand the Russians.

“Now, Putin is in power for long, long years [sic]. We forgot about how dangerous when there is no strong leadership or interregnum in Russian. The interregnum is the worst case possible… If this is the goal, it’s a mistake. It’s more than dangerous.

“If any western country would send any boots on the ground, that would mean a direct war between the west and Russia, and we are in a third world war immediately, so it’s a very dangerous moment now.

“Ideology is a very difficult thing, because it has an exclusivity. So, when the liberal says that this is the interpretation of society, it means that this is the only way to interpret a society. If you do differently, you cannot be a good man. So, we have another interpretation, we have a Christian and national, more traditional interpretation of human being and society, but they can’t accept it because it’s different.

“If you ask anybody on the street that any Hungarian leader who is elected freely can be a puppet of Putin or the Russians, they say it’s a joke, it’s impossible, because we are a sovereign country, and even to the Russians we deliver many times that we are sovereign.”
