WATCH: Tucker Carlson Polls Audience On Better Name For ‘Monkeypox,’ The Result Was Priceless
Monkeypox. Monkeypox. Monkeypox. That’s panning out to be the next scary thing that Americans are told to fear for their lives about. Even though it’s apparent that the minority at risk of the virus is the “men who have sex with men” community.
Regardless, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus declared the virus a “public health emergency of international concern.”
But instead of shutting down gay bars and places where orgies are held (similar to how the WHO reacted towards churches and schools after the launch of COVID-19), these people are focusing on shutting down internet discourse.
The hypocrisy is comical, really.
On top of all that confusion and lunacy, leftists want to rename the dreaded monkeypox virus because they claim it sounds too racist and insensitive. So Tucker Carlson did want the regime hates the most; use humor to combat all the hysteria.
The Fox News host polled his audience to find the best replacement possible for the name, and his loyal fanbase did not disappoint.
The winner: “Schlong Covid.”

As expected, conservatives got a hoot after the whole bit. And as all good comedy does, it attracted a lot more attention to the absolute insanity of monkeypox and the politically correct battle that has accompanied it thanks to radical left-wing activists.
Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillion talks about the power of humor a lot. He claims that the left has an agenda to “kill” comedy, so one powerful way to combat that mission is by making “the jokes you’re not supposed to make.”
“The left is attacking comedy, killing comedy, trying to stifle it, trying to suppress. In particular, of course, comedy they don’t like that makes jokes that they don’t want you to be allowed to make,” Dillon said during “The American Future” panel at the National Conservatism conference in Orlando.
“The project of satire should be as simple as looking at what’s happening, what’s the truth, what’s going on in the world, what’s reality doing. And then exaggerate that to make a point find something in it that you can criticize that you can ridicule, you can mock because of its absurdity, its hypocrisy, etc,” he added.
“Have you guys ever heard the saying there’s a grain of truth in every joke, or it’s funny because it’s true?” Dillon later asked the audience.
“The problem isn’t satire being too close to reality. The problem is reality has become satirical, ultimately,” he added.
This all highlights why the WHO and the ruling regime are so committed to combating misinformation online. Especially around monkeypox.
The movement has become the go-to boogeymen for the ruling class. Which makes sense considering controlling information is one the most effective ways to manipulate the masses.
“The stigma and discrimination can be as dangerous as any virus and can fuel the outbreak,” Ghebreyesus said. “As we have seen with COVID-19, misinformation and disinformation can spread rapidly online.”
“So we call on all social media platforms, tech companies, and news organizations to work with us to prevent and counter harmful information,” he added.
Humor may be the best weapon against this Orwellian propaganda. Hats off to Tucker Carlson for drawing first blood.
