(WATCH) Tucker Carlson Unveils New Name for Monkeypox


A woke New York City official earlier this week demanded the WHO change the ‘racist’ title of monkeypox.

“NYC joins many public health experts and community leaders who have expressed their serious concern about continuing to exclusively use the term ‘monkeypox’ given the stigma it may engender, and the painful and racist history within which terminology like this is rooted for communities of color,” Dr. Ashwin Vasan, commissioner of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, wrote to Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director general of the WHO.

“Continuing to use the term ‘monkeypox’ to describe the current outbreak may reignite these traumatic feelings of racism and stigma — particularly for Black people and other people of color, as well as members of the LGBTQIA+ communities, and it is possible that they may avoid engaging in vital health care services because of it,” Vasan wrote.

In the effort to rename monkeypox, Tucker Carlson conducted a democratic poll to replace the ‘racist’ title of the illness.

“We’re gonna change the name this time. We’re going to do it with the public’s help cause democracy is real. So we had a vote, there’s no ballot harvesting. You can trust our counting,” Carlson explained.

Here were the choices from the poll:

NATIONAL POLL: Do You Trust Fox News?

Daily Mail reported:

Carlson’s Twitter poll had more than 26,000 votes, with schlong COVID the favorite among 39 per cent of respondents.

Midterm Variant was runner-up, with 24 per cent, while Adam Schiffilis came third, with 20 per cent, and Hunter Hives was fifth, with 17 per cent.

Some progressive health officials have asked for monkeypox to have its name changed because the original title could be construed as racist.

Last month, the World Health Organization said it would rename the disease, although it has yet to announce the replacement term.
