Fox News host Tucker Carlson ripped a “woke” American woman for “complimenting” “co-parents” from the Chinese Communist Party, citing an article on Friday.
“The New York Times published a comment from an alert American woman who lived in China for 16 years. What did she miss about China? She misses the Chinese Communist Party co-parenting her children,” Carlson, an honorary board member of the Daily Caller News Foundation, said of Wednesday’s essay. “She thinks the Chinese commissars did a better job of being a mother than she would have. She misses their firm hand, and we are not making this up.” (RELATED: ‘People of China are right’: DeSantis calls Chinese regime’s ‘draconian’ Covid policies)
“Our stern government co-parent quickly made its presence felt,” wrote Heather Kaye in a New York Times (NYT) op-ed. “The girls’ Chinese daycare lectured us on everything, including how many hours our daughters should sleep, what they should eat and their optimal weight.”
Kaye added that she sometimes felt like she was borrowing her children for evenings and weekends, according to the op-ed. She also wrote that China’s strict lockdown policies led her and her husband to leave the country and return to the United States, but also added, “Attention to the common good is a fundamental value I seek in an American government co-parent.”
“The Communist Party shamed this lady’s child!” Carlson burst out.
Carlson previously referred to efforts to ban furnaces and other appliances that use natural gas. Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul of New York proposed such a ban that would be fully in effect by 2030, according to Bloomberg.
“She compliments the government of China,” Carlson said.
“The piece ends by noting ‘The tight control of the Communist Party’s surveillance state results in its own form of freedom,'” Carlson said. “Okay, that’s un-American, that person is sick, and if you don’t recognize how sick that person is, if you long for a fascist government to call your little girls fat, you’re a sick person.”
Kaye and the NYT did not immediately respond to requests for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.
