tv Tucker Carlson Tonight FOX News August 2, 2021 5:00pm-6:00pm PDT
>> thank you for watching fox news prime time. we will be back tomorrow night at 7:00. until then, be lovers of freedom. tucker carlson is up next. ♪ ♪ >> tucker: good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight" coming you this evening from budapest, hungary, right over the river, a place we will be telling you a lot about if you care about western civilization and democracy in families and the ferocious assault of all three of those things by the leaders of our global institutions, you should know what is happening here right now. more on that to come. a lot more. first, continuing to follow the
bizarre and very fast changing guidance on covid from the white house. remember when they told you the last administration was incompetent? you've never seen anything like this. it's beyond belief. just a week ago that she did her best to terrify all of us over the new indian strain of covid. it described the so-called delta variant as "one of the most infectious respiratory disease as we know of and that i have seen in my 20 year career. in internal cdc document summed it up in marshall terms "the war has changed. in response to those horrifying developments, the administration immediately reimplemented indoor mask mandates even for people who have been fully vaccinated. that was enough to get even the deeply incurious news media asking questions. wait a second, if the vaccines work, why the masks? so they started digging and they didn't have to dig much.
"the washington post" ran this headline, vaccinated people made up three quarters of those infected in a massive massachusetts covid-19 outbreak. pivotal cdc study finds. "the new york times" ran a similar piece based on numbers from the cdc and it just minutes after those articles appeared, the white house panic. a senior member of its covid-19 response team, a man who is not a doctor but instead a career flak jumped on social media to attack the media and attack the administration's own scientists. here's his message to "the new york times" on twitter over the weekend. he wrote it in all caps as if he was shouting "vaccinated people do not transmit the virus of the same rate as on vaccinated people and if you fail to include that context, you are doing it wrong. calling "the washington post" coverage of it be responsible and added let's be clear, if ten
vaccinated people walk into a room full of covid about nine of them would walk out of the room with no covid, nine of them. but is that true? the one who is not a doctor but instead of flak did not provide a citation for that statistic. in fact, judging by the cdc's own numbers it appears to be wrong. in other words, classic misinformation. possibly russian in origin. and yet strangely, who knows much less about science then say alex jones was not banned from the internet. he just kept tweeting and then a few hours later, he got back up support. the vaccine works. in fact, it works so well you may soon be forced to get it. >> are you for mandating a vaccine on a federal level? >> that something that i think the administration is looking into, something that i think we
are looking to see approval of from the vaccine. overall in general, i am all for more vaccination, but i have nothing further to say on that except we are looking into those policies and quite honestly, if people doing that locally, those are individual local decisions as well. >> tucker: so we are looking into a federal vaccine mandate but then just minutes after she said that, she went on twitter to take it back. "to clarify, there will be no nationwide mandate. i was referring to mandates by private institutions enforced by the federal government." that's not at all what she said. she said we are looking into a federal mandate nationwide. then on sunday, the head of the nih, a highly political francis collins explained mandates by private institutions might look like this. >> do you think is a public health measure, it would be good for more businesses to require
vaccine credentials in order to have vaccinated customers? >> is a public health person who wants to see this pandemic and, yes. i think anything we can do to encourage reluctant folks to get vaccinated because they want to be part of these public events is a good thing. i'm delighted to see employers like disney and walmart coming out and asking their staff now to be vaccinated. i am glad to see the president has said all federal employees, nih with 40,000 people or if they're not coming to get regular testing which is inconvenient. all of those steps i think are in the right direction. >> tucker: who is this old fool? employers asking their employees to get vaccinated? they are not asking, they are requiring as a condition of employment, and forcing them.
they just can't get in the united states anymore. still has not explained to what extent his agency funded the development of this virus in the first place. but francis collins at the same time also wants you to know that even if you have been vaccinated, you can't go back to your normal life. the vaccine is perfect, but you still have to wear a mask and can't go outside. large gatherings example are out of the question. because the possibility a handful of people who aren't vaccinated may be hurt. "if there are 100 people, how are you really going to be sure about people's vaccination status? on the other hand, why would you need to be sure if vaccination is a choice? he did not explain how unvaccinated people could possibly pose a threat to vaccinated people because remember, the vaccines work so well we have to mandate them for public health reasons. but at the same time, people who
have them are threatened by those who don't. are you following this? doesn't make any sense to you at all? do you need a medical degree to know it's complete nonsense? no, you don't. here's one thing you should know. these restrictions do not apply to everyone. prominent democrats have been exempted. barack obama announced he is inviting 500 people to his 60th birthday party at martha's vineyard, the house which is right on the ocean. pearl jam will perform, steven spielberg is invited, 200 staff. why 200? when you are as impressive, 200 is not too many. so it turns out martha's vineyard is exempt from new covid rules. parts of washington, d.c., have already been given a pass. we know that because muriel bowser delayed the implementation long enough to celebrate her own birthday party. dave chappelle came in at dozens
of others did too. after the mask mandate went into effect on saturday, muriel bowser was in a very pale neighborhood, not a diverse place. you think all of this, the lack of equity and diversity on the hypocrisy which bothers cnn form a look out for but they weren't. part of the ruling class and their job is to defend her no matter what she does, so they did. >> here's the thing, she wasn't actually as far as we know violating the new rules, correct? >> i think that is fair to say. i look at the photo and i see it seems like it could be during the toast. everyone's heads are pointing in a certain direction and they are listening to someone is what it appears to me. >> tucker: can you imagine? your news network and you are taking your airtime to defend the hypocrisy of politicians
because why? are they paying you? you feel a moral duty to do that? you are more loyal to them than to your viewers, the country. so where does this plead? what the civil rights mean when they are not enforced across the board? when your rights are given to you based on who you vote for, they're not really civil rights, are they? they are privileges. and that's exactly what's happening, happening around the world. rights that we took for granted and we believe we were born with in the english-speaking world have disappeared. looking like it once was barely australian military is now enforcing martial law. people are not allowed to leave their homes because of a covert outbreak this summer that led to a grand total, get your pencils, of nine deaths. nine people died of the virus and they are shutting down australia in using the military to do it. police helicopters are clearing people off the beach. is there scientific justification for this? no, but they are doing anyway.
>> tucker: australia, new zealand, canada, the united states, great britain. they speak the same language and have the same culture and all of them are allowing covid to defeat them. in australia, people not allowed on that beach and not allowed to ask why either. we know that because sky news australia which has the same owners as this channel has just been banned on youtube in australia. why is that? they reported that outdoor mask mandates and universal lockdowns may not be necessary to defeat covid are very effective. they reported the sciences far from settled on this and it is far from settled.
anyone who has watched the biden administration on scientists on social media this weekend, the science is not settled. science is settled in fact, it is a process of seeking the truth. it is not the same as a political directive just because a person in power tells you something doesn't mean it is science. just because cnn defends that person exempting himself from his own rules does not make that science. but rather than admit this obvious truth that almost all americans understand intuitively, the people running our government including the public health establishment, how long until they are kicking us off beaches and locking us in our homes michael will be allowed to complain about it when they do? the author of book inc. spent a long career in business and has taken a break from that because he thinks the country is in trouble, not least because of things like this. thank you so much for joining us tonight. so what should we make, what lesson should we draw when
politicians exempt themselves from their own rules? when barack obama has 500 guests and 200 servants to his oceanfront home in martha's vineyard at a time when the rest of us aren't allowed to do that, what should learn from that? >> we shall learn that the guiding principle is due as i say, not as i do when it comes to government officials policy on covid-19. it reminds me a lot of a white-collar criminal in the 1980s who famously said we don't pay taxes, only little people pay taxes. today, only little people are the ones who expect to abide by these covid-19 restrictions. it is laughable of the consequences weren't so serious and has given the public absolutely zero reason to trust anyone they have to say. the government did not trust the public at the start of this pandemic and other public doesn't trust the government in return and that's a problem. >> tucker: it is a problem particularly in public health. you've been in public health. you ran a pharma company, a
successful one. the public doesn't believe physicians are public health authorities, what kind of country do you have over time? >> it's absolutely right, you see the censorship to top it off. i started a biotech company, i care about the integrity of science and science is not when some government official says on a given day depending on what side of the bed he woke up on. science is a method of pursuing truth that requires free speech, open debate, and skepticism and instead, you've seen science transformed into becoming this institution. i call it the church and the church has put science itself on the altar as a sacrificial lamb. what we really need is a revival of the open discourse that allows us to discover what will be proven wrong in the future and without open dialogue and debate, we can't do that.
>> tucker: he would know since you started a biotech company the united states has led the world in scientific innovation for 100 years because it's the most open country. >> that's right. we have to be humble about what we know when what we don't. history teaches us most of our beliefs will be proven false or modified in some way but the only way we get there is not for censorship, not through government coordinated censorship with private companies but through open discourse and honesty and humility and skepticism. and now in the name of science, the worst kind of betrayal of science is in the name of science itself. >> tucker: that is totally right, it's the root of wisdom and the root of science. thank you for reminding us of that. great to see you tonight. so you often hear people say i'm required to wear a mask but what's the harm, it's a small price to pay.
but is it a small price? is there an effect on people and society that we live in? jeffrey anderson may be more than anyone in recent months has thought deeply about that question and just wrote up brand-new piece which we strongly recommend and should just read it on the air but instead, we are going to have him join us right now. the director of the bureau of justice statistics at doj and he joins us. thank you so much for coming on. see here that all the time, heard it this afternoon from an old friend of mine and i'm willing to do my part, why should we pause before we agree to this? >> is a huge price to pay for society as a whole. masks are uncomfortable and unhygienic, they profoundly compromise human interaction and communication, sociability and understanding. there's a reason that we have not concealed her face and the west is because each individual
human being is a unique individual on the way we can tell that is largely the way we identify someone is by his or her face. country that forgets the importance of the face is going to forget the importance of certain unalienable rights. when you look around looking like faceless stormtroopers, doesn't inspire a lot of confidence that we are fit to be free, self-governing citizens in a republic. >> tucker: i just want to write out what you said and put it on my refrigerator. the importance of the human face reminds us of the importance of the human individual. we are not all the same. that's why we don't wear uniforms so do you think their insistence that we cover our faces and everyone looks exactly alike reveals how they feel about us? >> it certainly suggests that to some degree and our willingness to go along with that said something about how we view ourselves in relation to them. we've had way too much government by public health official in recent months or by
executives who act like they are kings or emperors rather than representative legislatures who were supposed to be the ones representing us on these questions. >> tucker: i don't want to overstate anything or make anyone more fearful or paranoid, but it does seem like democracy to some extent, our understanding of the relationship is at stake here. >> i think that's right. it's interesting to compare this experience with 1918 and the spanish flu and the other pandemics that have hit an american's reaction to that. had more than 100 times the chance of dying of the spanish flu then of covid-19. the spanish flu was 100 times as deadly. you certainly don't hear that there's a culture of feel >> tucker: fear and we simply so far have been going along with it way too much and i think we need to actually look at the
science which suggests masks are not that effective and look at the full picture that shows they are doing a great deal of harm. >> tucker: that's exactly right. terrific piece, appreciate it. meanwhile as our public health authorities try to terrify us about a resurgence of the delta variant, people are dying all over the country because of the violence they have allowed. several people were shot on the street where you've been in the french quarter. now another major american city is about to set an all-time record of her violent crime. we will tell you where. coming live from budapest, hungary, we will tell you a lot more coming up. so we are standing in front of the hungarian supreme court building directly across from the parliament and like a lot of buildings in the central square in budapest, there were bullet
holes in the marble of the building and they are all over. some have been patched and some haven't been and they were from the 1950s hungarian uprising. and they are a reminder of how many times this country has been dominated by foreign powers, living testament to the violence that has been holding here and it really affects the way hungarians feel about themselves and their government. and here. which is why the scientific expertise that helps operating rooms stay clean is now helping the places you go every day too. seek a commitment to clean. look for the ecolab science certified seal.
♪ ♪ >> tucker: welcome back from budapest, hungary. the death of george floyd in minneapolis last memorial day has inadvertently perhaps lead to the deaths of many thousands more american citizens. violent crime continues to search an american cities across the country thinks the policies put in place since then. over the past weekend, several shootings in the city of new orleans. five people were shot in the cities french quarter early sunday. the crowd fleeing gunfire on your screen. keep in mind urban street in the french quarter of new orleans is
where people go when they visit the city. now it's too dangerous for people to go a lot of the time. in new york city, ten people were shot, three were killed following a gang shoot-out in front of a laundromat. will de blasio is busy playing volleyball but eric adams had something to say about that. watch. >> we are losing public safety and we have to respond immediately and treat this like the crises that it is. >> democratic mayoral candidate condemning the suspected gang related mass shooting on 37th avenue that left ten injured there saturday night. coming just as another suspected gang member was arraigned for shooting an nypd officer struggling to disarm him just after midnight saturday. >> tucker: tragedy everyone of them. a fellow at the manhattan institute and joins us now. thank you so much for coming on. it's infuriating and grief
making to watch those videos because you know they didn't have to happen, they did happen because of bad policies and the people who made those policies will never be held to account for them and never be forced to apologize. you covered this from a social science point of view from decades and it must enrage you to watch it. >> it certainly does. we are living through a real-time experiment according to much of the media, the democratic elite establishment crime is just racist fiction in the criminal justice system has been designed to oppress blacks therefore we can dismantle law enforcement without negative effect and will liberate them from racist oppression. the results have been in for a year as you say since the george floyd riots and what we've seen is the largest increase in homicide in this nation's history, dozens of black children mowed down fatally by drive-by shooting and senior citizens thrashed, beaten
mercilessly by racist hate filled thugs. this crime wave is coming to a neighborhood near you via carjacking, flash mobs and speed robbery and if we don't completely rebut without an apology, the false narrative that civilization is going to continue to unwind right before our eyes. >> tucker: i'm not sure most americans understand that not all cities are like that. i'm standing in a city of 1.7 million people were nothing like that ever happens in budapest, hungary. probably a lot of problems in budapest but nothing like that. have americans come to believe that we have to live like that, that is mandatory for some reason? >> we reverted to that in the early 1990s, criminologists saying it was inevitably violent, that was the american character, that was the norm and rudy giuliani and police
commissioner disproved it. you've mentioned hungary and families is the breakdown of the inner city and as long as that continues and young boys are raised without any sense of impulse control, deferred gratification, the police are the only thing that stands between a law-abiding residence in neighborhoods and other complete annihilation. so this narrative far from helping blacks is hurting them in the solution to it ultimately is not law enforcement, it is social cohesion and the return to the understanding that children need mothers and fathers. >> tucker: one thing i love about talking to you is you actually care what happens to the people we see her in her screen being murdered on the sidewalk, heather macdonald, thank you. so the southern border is
completely opened transforming the country. the biden administration has allowed many thousands and soon it will be millions of foreign nationals to enter our country. now there's an effort underway to make sure all of them can vote but don't say it out loud, it's a conspiracy theory. we've got details for you coming up live from budapest.
sal. what do you do? oh, i'm a retired postal worker. fantastic. are you ready to play? oh, heck yeah. ok johnny, tell him about eargo. these top of the line hearing aids from eargo are straight out of the future. they're rechargeable and virtually invisible in your ears host: ok sal, how much do you think they cost? oh gee i don't know... um er $5000? well, actually for you they don't cost anything holy heck. that's because federal employees, retirees and their families get these life changing hearing aids at no cost. holy heck and you don't need to visit a doctor because they ship right o your home and they come with lifetime remote support. convenient right? heck yeah..... heck yeah heck yeah eargo 5 is here. our latest device that allows you to personalize your hearing experience. get yours today. and if you're an active or retired federal employee you may qualify to get eargo at no cost to you.
>> welcome to fox news live. i matt finn appear at the white house calling on states and local governments to take action after an eviction moratorium expired over the weekend for the biden administration said the federal government has provided more than $45 billion to keep renters in their home and is acg states and cities to be too slow to act. president biden has faced criticism that he was slow to address the moratorium imposed
at the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic. senator lindsey graham has tested positive for covid-19. the south carolina lawmakers the first senator test positive despite being vaccinated. senator graham says he is "very glad he received the vaccine" and that without it, his symptoms would be far worse. i matt finn. now back to "tucker carlson tonight." for your headlines, log on to foxnews.com. >> tucker: so the biden administration doing all kinds of things almost immediately after joe biden was inaugurated in january but the very first thing they did, the first big policy change they did and they when they stuck to most assiduously has been to open our southern border not simply to latin america but to the world. invited they do that? why is that the one thing they did it immediately and have kept
doing? because they want to change who lives in this country and they are doing that to undermine democracy itself. when you change who votes, you change the outcome of elections and they believe by opening the border, they can ensure permanent control of our political system for generations print that is not a conspiracy theory, they say it out loud all the time. an attack you if you note it. dick durbin who was a senator reportedly from illinois just set it out loud on the floor of the senate a few days ago. last week, "the new york times" published an op-ed and we are giving it a title here directly, "there is no good reason you should have to be a citizen devote." the millions coming and should be able to choose your government. the author of that piece argues that noncitizens contribute just as much to this country is people who are born here and they should be allowed to pick the government. if that doesn't scare you, nothing will.
a senior fellow at the hoover institute enjoins us tonight. thank you so much for coming on.
so they scream at you if you repeat their own words back to them but i think it's pretty clear they are not even hiding it that the whole point of their immigration policy is to ensure political control. replace the population, get a different outcome. am i misreading this? >> no, you are not and it's important that you stress the urgency's just as we are seeing the efforts to destroy the electoral college or pack report, they feel the constituency of the present demography is not on their side so they can't wait to have residents come with green cards and go through the lengthy process of citizenship because they don't think they will be in power won't have this moment, so they want to have residents immediately become equal to citizens and they know that citizenship is the foundation of western civilization. we have a long. period that was
only 700 years ago where people said wait a minute, we are permanent fixed peoples and we can make our own laws and elect their own officials and take governance into our own hands. we can't do that if we are migratory tribes we don't have a
settled space or don't have shared in a collective customs and traditions that develop from the sediment. you look at people crossing the border, we don't know who these people are, we don't know if they speak our language or sharer values, we don't know if they've ever voted before and the idea that the moment they come across in the first decision they made was to break u.s. law, the second will be to reside here illegally, they would be coequal to a citizen defies the whole concept of civilization and remember, citizenship is already eroded, it is mentioned several times in the constitution, it's a assumption and they don't even have to define it but it used to
be the idea that a citizen could only hold elected office, could only vote, go in and out of the country at his own progression and will and could serve in the military and was subject to the laws of the united states and now we see are eroded and the only thing that separates a citizen from somebody crossing the border on day one was that they could not hold office and they could not vote yet already people in some jurisdictions, school board elections in california are voting and there's talk about people holding office. when that happens and we are no different then the room with people in the late fifth century a.d. coming across the roman borders with no difference in their status and roman citizens and you know what happened after that. >> tucker: this is being done intentionally stealing our country from american citizens, that's exactly what that says that we are allowing it. i appreciate your coming on tonight. >> thank you.
when max joe biden has only been in office for a little over six months, already radically change this country and a lot of different ways, accused a huge part of the population of being white supremacists, criminals, enemies of the state and with a very few exceptions, republicans have not even mentioned it, not said a word and not done nothing to protect their own voters. why is that? we talk to one journalist, a man who has long considered himself a member of the hard left about why this is in his answer is bracing. coming to you in just a moment. write back from budapest, hungary. in a central square in budapest, this is the scene of all modern hungarian history at various points there've been executions in the square, revolutions fomented in the square. right now, this is the scene of the legislative branch, three main buildings in the square and they were the product of a
competition in the 19th century, the hungarian people asked what kind of buildings they want and there were three entries in the competition and they built all three, first, second, and third in the winter is the hungarian parliament right behind me, neo-gothic as you can see. the second is the supreme court which is as you've noticed, neoclassical and that's the third place right there and not even going to name the architectural style so i think they got it right. first, second, and third.

what is it, exactly? who are these people? why have none of them been arrested? no one has asked that question. no one in congress has, not even republicans. why is that exactly? a longtime conservative writer but began his career on the hard left, the son of communists understands exactly what's happening and has been predicting it for quite a bit of time. we just spoke to david horowitz for a brand-new episode of tucker carlson today and here is part of that conversation. >> republicans are poor defenders of our country because they are poor messengers. the democrats control and have controlled every major city in their city in america for 50 to 100 years, controlled them 100%. every injustice real or imagined in the city done to minorities in the black people in
particular democrats are 100% responsible for. and yet, republicans are too polite to ever mention this. it's as though they don't want to embarrass their enemies by confronting them with their worst crimes. so everything that we've seen, all these protests and tearing up the cities over the summer which we've done with democrats support, these racist mayors largely black and 100% democrat encouraged the riots, did not call out the proper forces to suppress them to arrest these people, allow them to occupy our cities and burn them, over 600 violent riots and 220 american cities. this is the problem in our country, everything is upside
down. the racism in our country is an epidemic of antiwhite racism. you can say anything about white people. you can throw terms like white supremacy around with no evidence, no basis in reality. america is not a racist society in the least. an joe biden when he said the greatest threat is not licensed, not china, not the iranian terrorists, the greatest threat to america's white supremacy, he must be talking about himself because he has been a lifelong white supremacist. i guess he is doing some kind of what he thinks is a personal atonement by dumping that charge unjustly on his country but it's a monstrous lie. why aren't republicans referring to the democrats as the racist
that they are? this is a racist party. equity programs are designed to help black people and minorities like small business people, but not whites. how racist is that? the only republican i know who was called a democrat a racist is donald trump and that's why they hate donald trump. republicans have to stop being so nice and going along with this language control. the border crisis, this is treason. you can't blow up the southern border in the midst of a pandemic. the conservative estimate is that 100,000 coronavirus carriers will come in illegally into the country this year things to the democrats, but of course, there's the billion-dollar cartels they are empowering, the sex traffickers,
people are dying. you don't hear rhetoric coming from the republican party that even approaches the seriousness of the problem the democrats have created. they betray the country. >> tucker: our conversation with david horowitz is fascinating and went on for an hour, you can find it at foxnation.com on tucker carlson today. barack obama is having a 60th birthday party and when you are king of the democratic party, why wouldn't you go big? and he has. 200 servants at barack obama's oceanfront estate in martha's vineyard. who are they, exactly? must be from a diverse group. mark steyn has looked into it. that's next. it back from budapest.
♪ ♪ >> tucker: no one is more impressed that michelle obama. she can barely go outside. but when she is at home, she goes big. she and her husband of the democratic party is turning 60. they are celebrating martha's vineyard with 200 servers. will elephants be brought in on a litter? what will michelle lewinsky have to say? we don't have answers, but would you believe mark steyn might? he is the correspondent and based in our martha's vineyard and he joins us tonight. do you think 200 servants seems like a lot even for barack obama? why do you think they will be doing? >> actually, in vagueness, the butlers and deputy footmen will actually be the only diversity because the 500 guests, the same guests where basically back
to medieval era, the same 500 people that go to the parties. but as you know, barack obama, oprah, and george clooney, just as oprah and george clooney went to harry and meghan's wedding even though they never met either of them. you have to feel sorry just going to the parties of people who don't know is a really sad and miserable existence, but i have to say when you look at 500 guests, 200 footmen and under butlers, the most interesting to me is the way people actually perfectly happy with this. you have been talking about citizenship on the show, but actually a several number of people are quite happy to be subjects. oh, yes, go to granny's 90th birthday, but it is perfectly fine for barack obama to have 500 people because our rulers are so much better than us.
the last 18 months has actually clarified this. the governor of california, the french laundry, although that is different. he is a great man. obama is a great man. flying george clooney and oprah and is appropriate. i'm just going to put my mask back on and go into the house for another 18 months. >> that is the saddest observation -- the fierce egalitarian spirit of america dying and that is our fault, i agree with you completely. mark steyn it takes a poor eye to see the truth about our country, great to see you. >> sometimes you have to be in budapest to see america clearly, i envy that, tucker. >> tucker: the great mark steyn. we are signing off tonight from the city and we will be coming here all week.
