On January 18, 2022, Tucker Carlson sat behind his desk at Fox News and got ready to address the American people about the COVID-19 pandemic continually being pushed by the Biden administration and the rise in drug use in major cities. But while Carlson is known to give fiery, passionate speeches about American freedom and how it is constantly under attack by the Democrats, the host surprisingly took a back seat to his own show as guest Candace Owens ripped into what she labeled as a “manufactured crisis” that is nothing more than modern-day slavery.
In the video, which can be watched below, Carlson was barely able to get his question in before Owens stated, “Take a look at the World Economic Forum. You know, the person that heads it up is a man named Klaus Schwab. He released a book in 2020 talking about how the COVID pandemic represented an opportunity for them to transform the world, for them to abolish private property. Look at everything they’re doing and you understand this is what — this is exactly what they’re after, right?”
Owens didn’t just make accusations about the Biden administration as she noted key examples. “Eviction moratoriums, basically saying you have to allow people that are effectively homeless to live in your home. You’re making entirely no money — how are people going to be able to pay back their mortgages? They’re not going to be able to, they’re going to default. People are going to be scooping up their properties that were once owned by people, hard-working American middle-class citizens, you know, that were maintaining their lifestyles before the government forced — shut this down.”
And showing why the COVID-19 circus is still being promoted, Owen concluded, “Look at these inner cities and you go, “Why are they — why do they want these problems? Why are they funding these problems? Why do they want drug addicts? Who on earth would ever fund the center to allow people to do drugs? Well, you’re looking at a government that wants a system of dependence. To me, I look at the situation and I say, ‘What we’re seeing is a modernized system of slavery. This is slavery in 2020 — in 2022 — and they are proliferating this under the guise of COVID-19.’”
