Tucker Carlson: No Group Benefited More From the COVID Pandemic Than the Leaders of Communist China
“… under COVID countless small businesses were under that devastated the middle class.”
Lockdown’s Employment Market Impact
Tucker opens by reiterating the destruction result of lockdowns and summarizes the most immediate impacts these lockdowns had on American Citizens:
First and foremost, GDP fell by the biggest percentage since the Great Depression. 22 million Americans lost their jobs in the first two months of the lockdowns. Remember that? Well, you may not know is that at least 5 million of them never went back to work. They dropped out of the workforce apparently for good.
More Debt To China
Tucker continues to describe the dramatic debt increase in China — the chart below is dated April 2019, before the pandemic, but gives you an idea of how much debt rose during the pandemic.
At the same time as fewer people were working. Thanks to the profligate lunacy of our leaders, our national debt rose by nearly $10 trillion unprecedented and along with the debt, our debt to China also rose.
Small Business Suffers, Big Business Thrives
So when every level COVID crushed America, centuries-old traditions just evaporated. It's a different country and not a better one. But that doesn't mean that everybody suffered under COVID countless small businesses were under that devastated the middle class. But at the same time, thanks to the lockdowns the tech monopolies thrived Apple, Google Amazon all saw their market caps explode. Jeff Bezos wanted a much richer than ever before, not that he needed the money.
COVID’s Largest Beneficiary: Chinese Communist Party (CCP)
But no group benefited more from the COVID pandemic than the leaders of Communist China. By April of 2021. That'd be more than a year into COVID. We're suffering here in China, the GDP had reached the highest level ever recorded. China's economy was growing faster after the pandemic than it had been before the pandemic. And as a result of that China will soon overtake the United States as the world's dominant economy soon.
COVID: The Greatest Crime In History
Tucker ends this clip by suggesting what many (the “conspiracy theorist”) have indicated since the start of the pandemic lockdowns:
… the Coronavirus didn't simply change the United States, the Coronavirus changed the balance of power in the world forever. So you think of COVID that way, and that's the way that people who run governments think about it, trust us, when you think of it that way because it's pretty obvious that this was more than an overhyped public health emergency. In fact, it may very well have been a crime, the greatest crime in history.
