Conservative activist Charlie Kirk on Monday denied that the COVID-19 vaccine is contributing to the increase in death rates in the US over the past few years.
Kirk told Fox News host Tucker Carlson: “We deserve an answer, and some people surmise, ‘Hey, this has nothing to do with the fact that we could have done it. Is there a mass vaccination strategy? “.
Kirk declined to elaborate on this claim, and instead lumped it in with elements that were entirely legitimate.
“We know that there [were] death of alienation, suicide and other things. But there [are] No answer. Not exactly, said the founder of The Turning Point USA. “Nobody talked about it.”
Kirk based his wild speculation about findings of the life insurer OneAmerica, whose CEO, J Scott Davison, said last month that the death rate among 18-64 year olds was up 40% from pre-pandemic levels. The severity of this number is illustrated by how a disaster in 200 years would only cause a 10% increase, Davison said.
While the increase in the number of deaths was largely due to COVID-19 and people who got it then died of a separate illness, Kirk sold claim ownership that vaccines themselves may be responsible for the higher mortality rates. Carlson, who has made similar claims, did not refute his guest’s assertion..
Last spring, Carlson hint that “30 people a day” die from vaccines, citing an open source database that PolitiFact note has become “a breeding ground for misinformation.” That database, Carlson claims, shows “less than 1% of vaccine side effects”.
“So how many people have actually been killed or injured by vaccines? We don’t know that number,” Carlson said later, like Kirk on Monday. “No one does and we won’t speculate about it on the show. But it is clear that what is happening now, for whatever reason, is not even close to normal. It’s not even close to what we saw in previous years with previous vaccines. Most vaccines are not accused of killing large numbers of people.”
