Tucker Carlson interviewed Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva on Tuesday about not enforcing the biden vaccine mandate in his sheriff’s department.
Sheriff, thank you so much for coming. I’ll just throw it at you. Why are you taking this public step to disobey this order?
Sheriff Alex Villanueva, La County: Well, it’s very simple. I have – I know my employees very well and I can’t afford to lose five to ten percent of my employees who will try to force something overnight and remember, I believe in vaccines. I believe in science.
But if someone else who was an employee did not believe, who would I impose my trust system on them? And they are going to vote with their feet. There are people close to my retirement, who can only go away, no harm. I have other people who can claim a workers comp injury, call in sick condition, and then all of a sudden we are carrying a homelessness and a murder gee that is massive.
And I have a board of overseers who are embracing this awakened cosmic universe where they will somehow know that commands like Moses are coming down from the mountains and everyone will pay attention to them and make them happen. I have to deal with reality and this is a very dangerous and unreasonable order.
CARLSON: Well, yeah, I mean, you run – I think LA County, it’s definitely one of the biggest counties in the country, probably the biggest, I can’t remember but it’s huge. Did you tell them that if you force 10 percent of my employees to leave, people will die? I mean you must have made that case. What did they say?
VILLANUEVA: Well, remember, this is the same county that sits on a 2 billion surplus when they’re only defending one department, law enforcement, since our homicides have increased by 54%, our county has a quarter of homeless people and more coming and their Without having a plan for it, the only thing they can agree on is, let’s make law enforcement illegal and see how it works.
Okay, that’s it এটা it’s just got a chance to speak specifically because the ones who are going to be hurt by this are the people who are expecting to show someone when they call 9-1-1 and there’s no one to answer the call, go to the call, investigate the crime Do, and actually keep people in jail while we are being deceived.
Heck, they want to close the biggest prison in the country without an alternative and everyone guesses and leaves.
Carlson: I hope you run into the office. I think no matter which party you represent, a lot of people will vote for you because we are so desperate to talk to people like you. Sheriff, thank you so much for coming tonight. I support it.
