Freedom in America has been seriously limited over the past year because of the coronavirus. Some of the rules imposed have made sense, and some have not. Now we are hearing rumbles about a ‘vaccine passport,’ truly one of the worst ideas ever. Reminiscent of totalitarian governments saying, “Papers, please.” So what is the end game here? Well, someone accidentally gave that away.
Yesterday Red State reported the following:
Sometimes tyrants just come right out and say what they mean. Last night was one of those nights.
Chris Cuomo and Leana Wen appeared together to bat around an absolutely insane idea, and it shows just how far the left in this country are willing to go to exact their will. In this case, Wen says that vaccinations should be tied to “freedoms,” denying them to those who haven’t yet gotten the shot.
The article continues:
There’s a lot of irony in a “my body, my choice” proponent saying this. Remember, Wen is the former head of Planned Parenthood. Her entire schtick is that people should have such bodily autonomy that they can kill their own child if they want. Yet, now she wants to force people into lockdowns and punish them if they don’t inject their bodies with a specific substance. Makes sense, right?
It’s also scientifically illiterate. Those in age groups that are not at any real statistical risk of death have no reason to be prioritized for vaccination right now, and it would be tyrannical and asinine to force them to stay locked up until then. That also slows our path to herd immunity down.
And what about the tens of millions of people who have already had the virus in the United States? Science continues to show that anti-body immunity is effective and we’ve yet to see any large number of re-infections, even going back to those who had it over a year ago. The proof of that can be found in a complete lack of reporting of such incidents. The occasional anecdote will be shared, but that only drives the statistical case home harder. If immunity for those previously infected wasn’t long-lasting, we’d have seen huge spikes among those people by now.
I have had the virus and have no intention of getting the shot. I will be tested for antibodies to make sure that I am protected. However, that may not be enough for those pushing the vaccine. Already I am getting notices from places I would normally attend to discourage me from attending because I have not had the vaccine. That is truly discouraging to me. I wonder when I will be forced to wear a label that identifies me as not vaccinated.
