Howard Stern: Anti-Vaxxers Shouldn’t Be Admitted to Hospitals
During a recent episode of his popular Sirius XM radio show, host Howard Stern said U.S. hospitals shouldn’t admit people who haven’t been vaccinated against the coronavirus.
“If it was up to me, anyone unvaccinated would not be admitted to a hospital. At this point, they have been given plenty of opportunity to get the vaccine,” Stern told his listeners.
“[People] have been told you will die if you get the vaccine. Some of you will live, but most of you will die. [These people] don’t trust our government. They think that there’s some conspiracy to turn them into a magnet or something like this,” Stern said.
“They think they are going to become magnetized if they take the vaccine. I’ve taken this vaccine three times, and the worst side effect is for a day, I had a little bit of a headache.”
“No one’s sitting there conspiring against you,” he continued.
“Americans don’t want to create a vaccine that’s going to turn you into a robot or magnetize you. There’s enough Americans now have taken it. Look at us as a sampling where nothing has happened to us. It’s time for you to get it. Now, if you don’t get it, in my America, all hospitals would be closed to you. You’re going to go home and die. That is what you should get. Absolutely.”
Stern’s remarks were quickly met with backlash. Fox News host Tucker Carlson addressed his words on air, saying the once-great radio host is now “a coward, and his broadcast is about cowardice.”
“[Howard Stern] is attacking anybody else who’s decided to live life as a free person,” Carlson said.
Stern went viral in September after he called anti-vaxxers “imbeciles” and told them to “go f—k yourself.”
“When are we gonna stop putting up with the idiots in this country and just say it’s mandatory to get vaccinated?” Stern said at the time.
“F—k ’em. F—k their freedom. I want my freedom to live.”
