Oltásellenes, retteg a bevándorlóktól és csodálja Orbán Viktort

Tucker Carlson, a konzervatív média zászlóshajója, a Fox News legnézettebb műsorát vezető újságíró minden héten képes olyasmit mondani, amivel sikeresen felhúzza a sajtó liberális szárnyát, de a demagóg kijelentéseit kínosnak tartó konzervatívokat is. Ennek ellenére – vagy talán éppen ezért – a műsora, a Tucker Carlson Tonight a legnézettebb az amerikai hírtelevíziók körében: márciusban és áprilisban is átlagosan hárommillióan voltak kíváncsiak rá. Tavaly pedig minden idők legnézettebb hírtelevíziós műsorával írta be magát az amerikai tévétörténelembe 4,33 millió nézővel. Abban az időszakban, amikor a Black Lives Matter mozgalommal kapcsolatos, felháborodást okozó mondatai miatt egymás után hagyták ott a műsorát olyan fontos hirdetők, mint a Disney és a T-Mobile.

Covid19: kitiltották egy kanadai boltból a beoltott embereket

Egy gyóygkészítményeket árusító bolt tulajdonosa megtiltotta, hogy olyan emberek vásároljanak a kanadai Windsor városában található üzletében, akik megkapták a covid19 elleni védőoltást – jelentette a CTV kanadai televízió. A Herb Plus Beadworks nevű üzlet tulajdonosa, Tony Pantalleresco a CTV-nek elmondta, bárki vásárolhat náluk, de az üzlethelységbe nem léphetnek be a beoltott emberek, „a vásárlók és az ott dolgozók biztonsága érdekében”. A férfi szerint – amit a CBC kanadai televízió által megkérdezett szakértők tudománytalannak neveztek – az oltásoknak ismeretlen mellékhatásai vannak, és fél, hogy ő és vásárlói „elkaphatják” azokat. Pantalleresco, aki a boltban látható táblák tanúsága szerint olyan összeesküvés-elméletekben hisz, mint a „chemtrail”, a CBC-nek többször is elmondta, attól tart, ...
