TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): In March of last year, the leadership of the United States and of China both declared national emergencies. In the U.S., Tony Fauci warned Congress that reopening American businesses could cause, quote, “coronavirus outbreaks the government may not be able to control." Going outside, Tony Fauci said, was just too risky. 

Meanwhile, in China, where the coronavirus originated, a top adviser to the Chinese government declared that the country was experiencing a very different kind of threat, a more profound threat. 

The problem he said, was a national masculinity crisis. Chinese boys, quote, “have been spoiled by housewives and female teachers," and they were becoming as a result, quote, “delicate, timid, and effeminate."

In essence, they were becoming people who might listen to someone like Tony Fauci. Left unchecked, said the Chinese government advisor, the feminization of Chinese boys would, quote, “inevitably endanger the survival and development of the Chinese nation."
