Fox News host Tucker Carlson called on his viewers Monday night to harass anyone wearing a mask outside and to even call the police if they see a child wearing a mask outside.

“Masks have always been incompatible with a free society,” Carlson said. “We used to know that. Masks strip people of their identity as individuals, transform people from citizens into drones. They isolate us and alienate us to shut us off from one another, they prevent intimacy and human contact. If I can’t see your face, I can’t know you.”

Carlson then openly called for his viewers to harass people wearing masks outside. “The rest of us should be snorting at them first. They’re the aggressors. It’s our job to brush them back and restore the society we were born in,” he said. “So the next time you see someone in a mask on the sidewalk or on the bike path, do not hesitate. Ask politely but firmly, ‘Would you please take off your mask? Science shows there is no reason for you to be wearing it. Your mask is making me uncomfortable.’”

“We should do that and we should keep doing it until wearing a mask outside is roughly as socially accepted as lighting a Marlboro on an elevator. It’s repulsive,” Carlson said. “Don’t do it around other people. That’s the message we should send because it’s true. As for forcing children to wear masks outside, that should be illegal. Your response when you see children wearing masks as they play should be no different from your response to seeing someone beat a kid in Walmart. Call the police immediately. Contact Child Protective Services. Keep calling until someone arrives. What you’re looking at is abuse, it’s child abuse, and you are morally obligated to attempt to prevent it.”

Carlson’s comments are in direct opposition to CDC guidelines which state that even vaccinated people should continue to wear masks outside to help mitigate infection.
