The idiocy and hypocrisy surrounding the Chinese virus is getting worse by the day. As a matter of fact, I now feel that this is more of a political virus than a medical one.
Last fall, we heard the Left screaming that they would not get the “Trump Vaccine” that was being developed under his Operation Warp Speed program. Biden stumbles into office and, suddenly, we all MUST get the exact same vaccine that, a week before, was unthinkable. Anyone else other than me see the phony hypocrisy here?
Now we are hearing the media whore, Dr. Anthony Fauci, pushing for masking again…this time with unconstitutional federal mandates.
Now, let’s get this straight:
It is reasonable to encourage people to get vaccinated. However, you are going to encourage people by telling them, in essence, that nothing will change after you get vaccine? That you will be forced to wear a mask whether you are vaccinated or not?
As of this writing, 56% of all Americans have received at least one dose of the vaccine and 48% are fully vaccinated. Among the most vulnerable, 79% have been fully vaccinated and 89% have one dose.
Since this pandemic started, 35% of all Americans have been infected with COVID.
When you put all of these numbers together, no matter how you break them down, 80 – 90% of Americans have either a natural or vaccinated immunity to the virus.
What the hell ever happened to herd immunity? All of sudden we don’t hear about this anymore. As a matter of fact, if you do talk about it you must be a “white supremacist” or something equally as heinous. Didn’t The NY Times tell us that 60 – 70% of the community needed resistance for herd immunity? Or has that changed now?
Now, ask this:
Why are we moving backwards with mask mandates despite a majority of the country having some sort of immunity? If the vaccines are working as we are told, why are masks needed for everyone? I can understand the unvaccinated, but aren’t the vaccinated protected? It is like telling people that they should walk under an umbrella on a sunny day because there is a 5% chance that it MIGHT rain.
Further, Dr. Fauci is completely contradicting present CDC guidelines.
Fauci has taken us from “masks are ineffective” to “two masks are needed” and now “fully immune people need to wear masks.”
It is the unvaccinated who are at risk….not the vaccinated. If I am vaccinated or immune am I spreading the virus? If the vaccines are not fully effective why push people to get them?
One wonders when lockdowns will start again.
One has to wonder if this new “dire news” is about health or more about diverting attention away from political news that is not favorable to the Democrats. Election audits in Arizona and other states are starting to reveal election fraud. Hunter Biden’s massive pay-to-play scheme involving President Biden and his family may be far worse than the nonsensical claims against President Trump. And, despite a lack of mention in the press, the John Durham investigation and report is still in play with possible upcoming indictments.
Rest assured that by the fall the Democrats will want to bury all of this with Totalitarianism on demand.
You hit the proverbial nail on the head. Brilliant summation.
Absolutely dead-on. Couldn’t agree more.
This is absolute truth. Covid was originally a virus but morphed into a political attack on President Trump. Democrats will play this as long as they can. We need to just say no.
With COVID, vaccination — and even having had the disease — does not produce 100% immunity, but merely a lower likelihood of getting it and the likelihood that if you DO get it, the course of the disease will be relatively mild. But you will still be carrying the pathogen and can spread it to others.
The mask primarily protects OTHERS from whatever pathogens YOU are carrying and only secondarily protecting you from others.
