Fox News’ Tucker Carlson slammed the devastating impacts the government’s response to the pandemic had on society as the “single most destructive event to take place in the United States in our lifetime.”
“So destructive that it’s going to be many years before we know for certain what the last two and a half years have cost to all of us.,” he argued in the opening segment of Friday’s episode of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Carlson noted that among the rubble was a tanked economy – as evidenced by the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) falling by the largest recorded percentage since the Great Depression.
The political commentator tied this in large part to the 22 million Americans who were suddenly unemployed at the beginning of the pandemic due to the lockdown policies, 5 million of whom never returned to the workforce. This – in addition to the unprecedented debt taken on by the government and the deep moral decline of its people – was a recipe for disaster.
“At the same time, as fewer people were working thanks to the profligate lunacy of our leaders, our national debt rose by nearly $10 trillion – unprecedented – and along with the debt, our debt to China also rose and then at the level of our society, every bad thing became more common: drug ODs, suicide, illiteracy, crime, all of them skyrocketed,” Carlson continued.
“So, on every level, Covid crushed America,” Carlson argued. “Centuries-old traditions just evaporated. It’s a different country, and not a better one.”

“But no group benefited more from the Covid pandemic than the leaders of communist China,” Carlson contended.
“By April of 2021, that would be more than a year into Covid when we are suffering here, in China, the GDP had reached the highest level ever recorded,” Carlson explained. “China’s economy was growing faster after the pandemic than it had been before the pandemic and as a result of that, China will soon overtake the United States as the world’s dominant economy – soon.”
“Now, if someone had predicted that ten years ago, you would have laughed. It would have seemed ridiculous, but that was before Covid. Now it’s real, and Covid made it possible.”

“In other words, the coronavirus didn’t simply change the United States. The coronavirus changed the balance of power in the world forever,” he said. “So, when you think of COVID that way, and that’s the way the people who run governments think about it, trust us, when you think of it that way, it becomes pretty obvious that this was more than an overhyped public health emergency.”
“In fact, it may very well have been a crime, the greatest crime in history,” Carlson suggested. “Was it? It’s hard to think of a more important question, and yet our leaders seem curiously uninterested in answering it.”
