Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Tuesday evening on his show that the U.S. government is planning to lace the country’s water supply with SSRIs — selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors — (i.e. antidepressants) in order to keep the American public happy.

Carlson was hosting his nightly show from Rio Rio de Janeiro when he went off on an extended rant about falling fertility rates in the United States, oddly blaming Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) — whom he referred to as “Sandy” — for the trend:

“The more atomized and unhappy American society becomes, the easier it is for them to control. Fewer marriages and babies and family-owned homes means more rootless and dissatisfied people. It means an entire nation of desperately unhappy grad students. Sandy Cortez could become the queen of a country like that.”

Inflation and the high cost of having children, Carlson insisted, is part of a larger plan:

“Families are for the tech tycoons in Napa, they’ve got a ton of kids. And for the Haitians huddled underneath the bridges at the border in south Texas, they’ve got a ton of kids too. But for you, a middle-class American, sorry. Your deepest desires are far beyond reach.”

All of this, Carlson concluded, will result in the government dumping antidepressants into the water supply so no one will care what happens:

“You have to wonder, how long before Democrats sponsor legislation to distribute free cats to young people in the cities, placebos to replace the families they can no longer have. That’s coming, along with SSRIs in the water supply, so you don’t have to think too much about it. We’re finally getting to see what their utopia feels like. Hope you feel better.”

What Carlson neglected to say is that he too has a large family: Four children. But of course since he inherited millions from his parents and now makes millions more spreading lies and BS each and every night on Fox, he isn’t exactly middle class, so it seems odd that he’d give a diddly damn about those who live paycheck to paycheck.

The real reason for Carlson’s fake concern is that he wants to see more white children born and fewer brown or black kids. It’s all part of his “replacement theory” of this country. If whites become a minority, the country will be doomed, Carlson seems to suggest.

But the biggest threat to American democracy and the republic is the noxious hatred and disinformation being spread by paid liars like Carlson.
