Tucker Carlson slams colleges for forcing students to get Covid vaccine warning those who 'disobey' will be denied entry
TUCKER Carlson has slammed university colleges for allegedly forcing students to get vaccinated against Covid-19 before they return to campus in the fall.
The Fox News host, who supports the vaccine, condemned the 100 American universities that have said they will require students to take up the jab.
He told viewers last night: "Colleges across the country have announced that they will require vaccine passports in the fall. Students who can't show proof of COVID vaccination will not be allowed on campus.
“You can see where this is going, and at high speed. Soon, virtually all college students in America will be required to take the COVID vaccine. In effect, it is a national mandate."
The presenter claimed it’s “hard to understand the reasoning” behind the decision from a medical perspective and accused Democrats of driving mandatory university vaccinations – including president Joe Biden.
He said: "They found our pressure point. If you disobey us, they've announced — and Barack Obama has affirmed them and so has Joe Biden — if you disobey, we will prevent your children from being educated."
Tucker clarified that he doesn’t oppose students getting vaccinated against Covid-19 but said they shouldn’t be forced to take the jab if they choose not to.
He said: “They will have total power over your body and mind forever. What’s the limit to their power? There isn’t one.”
It comes as John Oliver, who presents the show Last Week Tonight, slammed Tucker for allegedly questioning the need for some groups to be vaccinated, branding the Fox News presenter a "scrunch-faced fear baboon".
He said: "It is genuinely weird to see someone being on a show on a supposed news network and ending every sentence with a question mark.
"Especially when answers to most of these questions are out there for anyone who cares to know."
Oliver continued: "The CDC is being cautious and wants to be sure it's not spreading bull**** around during a global pandemic like a frozen dinner duke with a TV show.
"Anyway, I hope that answers at least one of your gape-mouthed bad faith wonderings Tucker, you scrunch-faced fear baboon."
A CNN tally revealed that more than 100 US colleges and universities have confirmed they will require students to get vaccinated against Covid-19 before the fall semester starts.
The University of Massachusetts at Lowell, Washington State University, Drew University, and the University of Portland are just some of the institutions that will require students to take up the jab.
Some institutions have said they will make exemptions for religious, medical or personal reasons.
More than 147million adults nationwide have received at least one dose of a Covid vaccine.
