Fox News host Tucker Carlson gave thoughtful advice to his viewers on Thursday, telling them that if after two years their brainwashed neighbors are still talking about COVID, it’s time to move because they are, in a word, “boring.”
“So, here’s a piece of advice. If you find yourself living in a place where people are still talking about COVID nonstop two years in, it is time to move. Not just because your neighbors have been brainwashed – though obviously, they have been – but because your neighbors are boring,” Carlson posited taking direct aim at the nonstop, breathless invocation of COVID by leftists.
“At this point, it is simply not an interesting topic for your private life. Yes, COVID has killed a lot of people. So has prostate cancer. Imagine telling people about your prostate every day for the next two years. People would know that you were a narcissist. No one would sit next to you at dinner. You would be boorish. And that’s exactly what COVID talk sounds to the well-adjusted among us,” he continued, saying out loud what most Americans are thinking.
“When we talk about COVID incessantly, we miss everything else, and that’s the real point. This is a big and complicated and completely fascinating world. Babies are born. The elderly die. And in between, all kinds of amazing things happen. We succeed, we fail, we scheme, we inspire, we fall in love, we create things that hadn’t existed before, we have deep and invaluable insights into life itself. Human beings do a remarkable variety of legitimately interesting things. Talking about corona is not one of them, so let’s stop,” Carlson implored his viewers.
Many Americans are now putting the pandemic behind them as much as possible and trying to move on with their lives.
But Biden is scaremongering over the Omicron variant and predicting a winter of death for those who are not vaccinated and is trying to convince the Supreme Court to reinstate COVID mandates for federally funded health workers. The president is evidently every American’s neighbor at this point.

“It’s here now and it’s spreading and it’s going to increase,” Biden dramatically warned concerning the Omicron variant while meeting with his coronavirus response team. “For unvaccinated we are looking at a winter of severe illness and death if you’re unvaccinated for themselves, their families, and the hospitals they will soon overwhelm.”
“But, there’s good news,” he disingenuously noted. “If you’re vaccinated and have your booster shot you’re protected from severe illness and death.”
“We’re gonna protect our economic recovery. If we do this, we’re gonna keep schools and businesses open … and I want to see everyone around enjoy that. I want to see them enjoy the fact that they’re able to be in school, that businesses are open and the holidays are coming,” he added.

The Independent is reporting that the U.S. is averaging more than 120,000 new COVID infections a day, which is allegedly a 40 percent increase in cases from two weeks ago and about 70 percent more than in early November. It is still unclear if more than just verifiable COVID cases are lumped into those numbers or how many cases are the much milder Omicron variant.
The variant has been found in at least 36 states. According to state data, it’s estimated that approximately 3 percent of COVID cases are now from Omicron.
Many agree with Carlson on the incessant ranting about COVID – others blame the government for not letting the hysteria die down:
I’m with you, it’s uncomfortable, but it’s true.

Kinda hard not to talk about it when our government and governments abroad keep shocking everyone with more asinine covid policies.

Tucker is spot on!
After nearly 2 years, our local news channel @WMUR9 leads off with a local flu story, intermingles flu into national news sports & weather and then closes with a flu story.
Every single day, every single broadcast.
When will it ever end ???#EnoughIsEnough

Unfortunately the virus has been so politicized that I don’t think a decent dialogue can be had
