TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): You may have noticed America is locking down again in some places that's already happening. If you have kids, you've seen it. Joe Biden has promised more of it. Masks and quarantine, limits on travel, restrictions on who you can eat with, who you can touch, and how. The most intimate details of our lives completely controlled by our leadership class. People who used to scream at the politicians, "Keep your hands off my body" aren't saying a thing about this. In fact, they're encouraging it. 

So the question is what exactly is this about? It's not about science, if masks and lockdowns prevented spikes in coronavirus infections we wouldn't be seeing spikes in coronavirus infections after 9 months. But we are seeing them. So clearly, the geniuses got it wrong once again. This time, they're not even bothering to point to legitimate scientific studies to support continuing the policies because there aren't any studies that support that.
