Fox News host Tucker Carlson likens Australia’s Covid exit strategy to ‘Chinese authoritarianism’ before claiming Aussies can’t fight back because the country was ‘disarmed’ of its weapons
- Fox News’ Tucker Carlson said Australia has become as overbearing as China
- He also made bizarre claims that Australians can’t respond after being ‘disarmed’
- Draconian lockdowns, especially in Victoria, have angered many Australians
A conservative US television host has claimed that Australia is becoming “like China” because of the country’s police, lockdown and vaccination policies, while stirring wild conspiracy theories on the air.
Tucker Carlson devoted part of his Fox News program of the same name to inflating Australia’s pandemic response and exit strategy, claiming that the country’s slide into “Chinese authoritarianism” was a lesson to the United States.
Mr Carlson’s monologue suggested that the Down Under government had ‘disarmed’ the incarcerated public so that ‘they could not rebel’, despite violent outbursts from those belonging to the ‘Freedom Rally’ movement registered in Melbourne in September.

The popular news anchor started his spray by targeting the Australian Federal Police’s 2019 raids on the ABC, which he said “looked a lot like Chinese authoritarianism.”
He said that after countries like the United States were shocked by images of Wuhan citizens at the start of the pandemic being “ordered into apartments to starve” and taken to “unknown locations,” he claimed the same things are now happening in Australia happen. .
What will Australia look like two years later? Well, it’s a lot like China at the beginning of the pandemic, that’s the sad truth.’
The highly regarded political commentator focused much of his attention on Victorian police for “beating…peaceful protesters” and “hunting” people for minor indiscretions in the lockdown.

“In just two years Australian police went from robbing newsrooms to beating people on the streets, so perhaps the lesson is that things can change very quickly,” said Mr Carlson.
“One minute the English-speaking world mocks China for being dystopian and autocratic, the next they’re aping China and chasing people two blocks from their own homes.”
He referenced an Australian television clip of a man being wrestled to the ground by Victorian police for not wearing a mask while smoking a cigarette, a stone’s throw from his home.
He also defended Anthony Karam, who became a fugitive from NSW police after he refused to self-isolate after a Covid test as ‘causing a national manhunt for sneezing in an elevator’.
“Not all Australians agree with this,” Carlson said, in a clear reference to anti-lockdown protesters.
“But because Australians were disarmed by their government a few years ago, they can’t do anything about it.”
The “disarming” comment appears to refer to Prime Minister John Howard’s 1996 decision to reform Australia’s gun laws in response to the country’s worst-ever massacre.
On April 28, 1996, Martin Bryant, then 28, killed 35 people and injured 23 others at a historic site in Port Arthur, Tasmania.
The laws prohibited rapid firearms from civilian possession, except under certain, limited licenses and tightened requirements for firearms licensing, registration, and safe storage.

The term New World Order has long been associated with the idea that globalists have an agenda, but the evidence so far indicating Covid originated in Wuhan has led to new conspiracy theories about communist China spreading a virus to invade liberal democracies. to destroy the West
“Look at what’s happening now, they’re being crushed,” Carlson said, as Fox played a video of violent clashes between Victorian police and protesters.
He ended by returning to the seemingly innocuous ‘new world order’ remark made three weeks ago by NSW Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant Health.
He seemed to claim that news outlets around the world deliberately ignored Australia’s decline as it was driven by a move to a new world order.
Just over a month ago, Mr Carlson also criticized Australia’s ongoing Covid lockdowns, comparing the ‘totalitarian’ country’s draconian restrictions to a ‘science-fiction’ movie.
He compared Australia to North Korea at the time.
