I invite you, the bulk who imagine in science and vaccines and who don’t eat horse paste, to cease sparing any ideas or prayers for many who die from COVID-19 after adamantly refusing to get jabbed and aggressively promoting anti-vax and anti-mask disinformation in the course of the deadliest pandemic of our lifetimes.
As an alternative, please be part of me in meting out some much-needed powerful love and champion vaccine mandates to save our country and fellow neighbors. President Biden agrees, and on Friday the White Home introduced that hundreds of thousands of federal contractor workers must be vaccinated by December 8.
I solely want the deadline was sooner so extra lives may very well be saved. Nearly one in every 500 Americans alive at the start of this pandemic—more than 650,000 people—has now died to COVID-19. Lots of them would nonetheless be alive if we had not coddled and tolerated a zealous pro-death cult that continues to compromise our kids’s security and disrespect frontline health-care employees and educators for his or her perverse, misguided delusion of freedom. In the event that they select demise, allow them to march off the cliff.
The issue, nonetheless, is that their recklessness drags the remainder of us to our doom. Some have mentioned that not taking the vaccine is like selecting to not put on a seatbelt. But it surely’s extra like being caught in a automobile hijacked by an unhinged driver who refuses to put on a seatbelt after which proceeds to drive full-speed in the direction of oncoming site visitors whereas angrily blaming everybody else for going the mistaken manner.
“How do you motive with people who find themselves actually dying to personal the libs?”
Earlier this week, those that had been injured in a Kroger grocery retailer taking pictures in Tennessee had been rushed to the emergency rooms of a close-by hospital, which was already struggling to treat the high number of existing COVID-19 patients. Solely 44 % of Tennessee’s inhabitants is vaccinated, and Governor Invoice Lee, making an attempt his greatest to help the Grim Reaper, signed an govt order banning masks necessities in colleges. Throughout America, we’re reading horror stories of how vaccinated, non-COVID sufferers are being disadvantaged of essential medical consideration as a result of egocentric, ignorant individuals who refuse to take a free, extremely obtainable vaccine are filling up the ICUs and relying upon the exact same health-care employees whom they ridicule, mock and maintain in contempt.
These are the identical individuals who booed Donald Trump final month at his rally in Alabama when he inspired his zombie demise cult to get vaccinated. For years, they applauded his racism, his misogyny, his cruelty, and his incitement for a violent coup, however they lastly drew a line when it got here to vaccines. In the meantime, Alabama introduced that, because of COVID, 2020 is the primary yr in its historical past the place the state had more deaths than births. How do you motive with people who find themselves actually dying to personal the libs?
Florida, by no means to be outdone in loopy, retains reminding America to carry its beer and Regeneron. The brand new surgeon normal there opposes mask and vaccine mandates in a state that has suffered greater than 50,000 deaths in the course of the pandemic, and Republican State Senator Manny Diaz, who has rejected the vaccine regardless of surviving COVID-19 final winter, desires to make polio nice once more and is asking on a evaluation of all vaccine mandates.
Polls show that most Americans support vaccine mandates to avoid wasting lives and shield our unvaccinated youngsters. Just lately, my dwelling state of California was ranked as having the bottom coronavirus case charge within the nation. Was it a Deep State conspiracy involving the mark of the Beast, unholy witchcraft and perverse wizardry? Did somebody sprinkle vaccines within the natural, vegan salad dressing, thereby confirming Michael Flynn’s conspiracy principle? No. Folks bought vaccinated. “More than 82 percent of Californians aged 12 and older have at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine.” The state additionally applied vaccine mandates for state workers, lecturers and health-care employees. Consequently, individuals are nonetheless residing and thriving.
United Airways, which threw down the gauntlet and warned its workers they’ll be placed on depart in the event that they don’t get vaccinated by the tip of September, simply introduced 97 percent of its workers have complied with the mandate. Delta Airways, which mentioned it could improve its month-to-month medical health insurance surcharge for unvaccinated employees, introduced vaccination charges rose to 82 %.
In the meantime, Andrew Wiggins, small ahead for my beloved Golden State Warriors, refuses the vaccine and says he’ll solely get jabbed if compelled to take action. The NBA thankfully just rejected his ridiculous request for a “religious exemption” from the vaccine. Despite the fact that it could hurt my basketball workforce, I hope they half with him on precept if he continues his egocentric stance and endangers his colleagues. Sufficient coddling. I’m even keen to commerce him for Ben Simmons of the 76ers who refuses to take any (basketball) photographs.
Wiggins ought to contemplate Kristen Lowery, a California mom of 4, who was a preferred anti-vaxxer on social media and whose avatar had the caption “unmasked, unmuzzled, unvaccinated, unafraid.” Effectively, now she will add “unalive.”
I really feel immense pity and unhappiness for her household, particularly her younger youngsters, who should stay with the painful reality that their 40-year-old mom might nonetheless be with them if she had merely taken a extremely efficient vaccine like most of her California neighbors as an alternative of selling the toxic anti-vaxx disinformation blasted every day on Fox Information that has actually killed individuals.
Powerful love and vaccine mandates might have saved her life. On the very least, we might help save others.
