LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): And Tucker, I want to get to some other stories that speak of some of the erosion of our basic freedoms. In the United States, we haven't seen yet the -- the type of -- kind of brutal enforcement of kind of a medical dictatorship that you're beginning to see in France. In -- in France, they're -- police are now going table-to-table to these outdoor restaurants, checking for people's health passes. I think you and I were mocked last year for saying that this was what the left ultimately wanted to happen -- have happen here. Do you agree that that's ultimately what they would prefer to happen here?
TUCKER CARLSON (GUEST): Well, of -- I mean, of course. But I mean, you -- you wonder why would it stop with COVID? I mean, why not HIV patients or people with hepatitis or any transmissible disease? I mean, right? There's a principle here, which is that your health status has to remain private. The government doesn't have a right to force you to take medicine you don't want or need and that you have a right to keep private, you know, your own health condition. And when we give that up, I mean, you're sort of -- you're looking at a brand new country.
And I -- the French are fighting back against this, you know. I don't think their testosterone levels have been lowered to quite the levels of ours by bad food or whatever. But there are definitely huge numbers of people who are -- are pushing back against this in the form of -- of protest nationwide in France. You're not seeing that here. You wonder how far they can go before people say, you know, "I'm not against vaccines, I obviously want to get COVID under control, but I -- you can't force me to take a medicine I don't want. If you can do that, why can't you sterilize me or lobotom -- what can't you do to me if you own my body?" That's a totally fair question, why is no one asking it?
INGRAHAM: Liberals used to believe in all that.
