Former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson appeared on Tucker Carlson Tuesday, with an urgent warning about COVID vaccines, calling the current push for boosters “insane.”
“We’re at a very dangerous moment, Tucker, and I’m not exaggerating. I think this is probably the most important appearance I’ve had with you in the last two years,” Berenson said. “It is completely clear now that the vaccines don’t really work at all against Omicron. In these highly vaccinated and highly boosted countries, rates of infection are incredibly high and rates of serious disease and death are also rising.”
“The Israelis are predicting they are going to have more serious cases than they ever had at the peak last year,” he continued. “And the idea that we would solve this with another booster is just off-the-charts insane.”
The comment comes following reports that Israel is entering a decline in what is their fifth coronavirus wave.
According to a report in Haaretz, the coronavirus monitoring team at Hebrew University believe the infection figures in Israel will stabilize in early February. “The rate of infection in the coming week will be high, with almost 100,000 verified patients a day. A significant decline is expected only in the first week of February, due to the development of herd immunity,” said the Hebrew University team.
Israel has distributed 17.8 million doses of the vaccine, and 65.8% of the population are considered to be fully vaccinated.
“I have not said this to you before because I’m pretty careful, and I’m pretty careful with the data, but these vaccines, these mRNA vaccines, the mRNA COVID vaccines need to be withdrawn from the market,” Berenson firmly stated. “No one should get them. No one should get boosted. No one should get double boosted. They are a dangerous and ineffective product at this point against Omicron. The spike that they make your body make that you then produce antibodies to— it’s not the Omicron spike.”
According to Berenson, the products should be taken off the market.
“Earlier today, Tony Fauci said we’re not going to give people monoclonal antibody first generation products because they don’t work against the Omicron spike,” he said. “The same logic applies to these mRNA vaccines, and giving people boosters, even if, in the very short term, it knocks down infection rates, there is a boomerang effect, and that’s what they are seeing in all of these countries. We’re at dangerous moment and these products need to be withdrawn.”
Predictably, Twitter exploded, as the clip quickly went viral, with people slamming Berenson, Carlson, and Kipp Jones, who reported the story with a not-so-subtle slant in Mediaite.

Kipp can't support his radical views, so he resorts to crazies to slander Berenson
And Kipp, Berenson is right. Stay stupid, Stupidhttps://t.co/tcfpgFYfdG

The appearance on Tucker led some to call the GOP a “death cult.”
Journalist/author Alex Berenson, who has bachelor's degrees in history and economics, was interviewed by Tucker Carlson tonight and said all mRNA vaccines should be withdrawn, calling them ineffective and dangerous. Fox News and the #GOPDeathCult are killing Americans. #VoteBlue

And as the reactions poured in, each side accused the other of being “misinformed.”
Ellen Carmichael would rather call Alex Berenson a grifter than defeat his argument that covid-19 vaccines should be universally withdrawn because omicron spike isn’t the same protein sequence as the original mRNA spike protein sequence, BECAUSE.. she’s uninformed and incapable. https://t.co/zieeLQfET3
