On Monday, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson flirted with QAnon conspiracies, suggesting the Democratic Party was a “cult of child sacrifice” because its donors were trying to protect women’s reproductive rights.
“They are going to take away your abortions. That was the Democratic message for the midterm elections, the ones that are just days away,” Carlson said on his show.
Carlson compared a woman’s right to choose whether or not to give birth to COVID-19 mask and vaccination mandates, citing the phrase “my body my choice.”
“Yeah, it would be a shame if states controlled people’s bodies, like telling people what to wear on their face or what drugs to inject into them,” he said.
“Abortion politics is a total Democratic donor fixation,” he added. “That’s the main thing that interests them. Why is that, anyway? It is a religion. It is a cult of child sacrifice.
A QAnon conspiracy theory incorrectly claims that former President Donald Trump was working to save the nation from a group of Satan-worshipping elites who run a child sex trafficking ring. QAnon followers believe this cabal includes top Democrats and Hollywood celebrities.
Democrats began to focus on protecting abortion rights after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June, undoing 50 years of precedent. Since then, nearly half of the states have either banned abortion or are working to do so.
