Little Lord Haw Haw is trying to murder as many U.S. service personnel as he can:
Fox News host Tucker Carlson continued his relentless anti-vaccine crusade on Monday by bizarrely claiming that the military’s new vaccination mandate was an effort by the Biden administration to weed out Christians and “men with high testosterone.”
Following the Food and Drug Administration’s full approval of Pfizer’s coronavirus shot last month, the Pentagon ordered all active-duty military members to be fully vaccinated. According to Carlson, though, the vaccine requirement was a “new political purity test” by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin. . . .
“This was specifically designed to separate the obedient from the free,” the Fox host grumbled on Monday night. “Can’t have any of the latter category.”
If there’s one thing the military has always promoted, it’s the idea that the Individual Freedom ™ of service members is much more important than the welfare of the group. (You will be shocked to learn that all service members are required to receive, along with many other vaccinations, an annual influenza vaccine).
Carlson, who has repeatedly sowed doubt about COVID-19 vaccines’ efficacy and safety, went on to say there was “zero scientific basis” behind requiring soldiers to be vaccinated against the virus that’s killed nearly 700,000 Americans. Never mind that service members have long been subjected to various immunizations, and a surge in the virus could negatively impact troop readiness.
Claiming that “virtually all” of the military is “at extremely low risk of dying from COVID” because they’re mostly young and healthy, the conservative primetime host went on to compare military suicides to coronavirus deaths.
“To this day, only 46 members of the entire U.S. military have died from the coronavirus over the last year and a half,” Carlson stated. “Suicides, by contrast, kill many, many times more.
Of course there’s no vaccination against suicide, although needless to say Carlson would be against that too, if a few hundred thousand excess suicides a year would help the political and economic prospects of his paymasters.
“The point of mandatory vaccination is to identify the sincere Christians in the ranks, the free thinkers, the men with high testosterone levels, and anyone else who doesn’t love Joe Biden and make them leave immediately,” he exclaimed. “It’s a takeover of the U.S. military!”
Carlson then claimed he obtained a U.S. Army PowerPoint presentation that was meant to address service member concerns about vaccines, including a slide that sarcastically read: “How many children were sacrificed to Satan because of the vaccine?”
“Then the presentation proceeds to list the so-called tenets of Satanism which are taken from the Temple of Satanism website. So here you have the United States Army doing p.r. for Satanists,” Carlson fumed, framing the slide as proof the military was rooting out Christians.
In fact 473 people associated with the DOD have died from COVID so far, most of them in the last three months. In addition to 46 active duty service members, 304 civilian DOD employees, 21 dependents, and 102 “contractors” have died from COVID. 100% of the active duty service members who died were unvaccinated, so it seems likely that every one of these 473 deaths would have been avoided if Tucker Carlson hadn’t been spewing poisonous anti-vax propaganda.
Last month the deaths of 13 service members in Afghanistan led to various calls from other Rupert Murdoch puppets for Joe Biden to resign, but Tucker Carlson murders 37 times as many DOD personnel via propagandistic lies, and what happens to him?
Speaking of the original Lord Haw Haw, I’ve always thought it was in some perverse way rather fitting that he, like his German idol Julius Streicher, was executed after legal proceedings that were, as a formal matter, of considerable dubiosity:
“Not guilty” were the first words from Joyce’s mouth in his trial, as noted by Rebecca West in her book The Meaning of Treason (as noted by Whittaker Chambers in his 1947 review of that book). The only evidence offered that he had begun broadcasting from Germany while his British passport was valid was the testimony of a London police inspector who had questioned him before the war while he was an active member of the British Union of Fascists and claimed to have recognised his voice on a propaganda broadcast in the early weeks of the war – Joyce had previous convictions for assault and riotous assembly in the 1930s.
Inquiries in the United States found that Joyce had never been a British subject, and it seemed that he would have to be acquitted, based upon a lack of jurisdiction; he could not be convicted of betraying a country that was not his own. He was acquitted of the first and second charges. However, the Attorney General, Sir Hartley Shawcross, successfully argued that Joyce’s possession of a British passport, even though he had misstated his nationality to get it, entitled him until it expired to British diplomatic protection in Germany, and therefore he owed allegiance to the King at the time he began working for the Germans.
The historian A. J. P. Taylor remarked in his book English History 1914–1945 that “Technically, Joyce was hanged for making a false statement when applying for a passport, the usual penalty for which is a small fine.”[
