Did He Mean To Say That?

Hot Air posted an article today about a recent comment made by President Biden.

The article notes:

By this point in the day, surely somebody on Joe Biden’s staff is suggesting that maybe town halls and public speaking appearances really aren’t such a great idea for the new President. The list of zingers from last night’s CNN town hall just keeps on coming, with none of them painting Uncle Joe in a very good light. During this exchange with Anderson Cooper, Biden is attempting to explain some of the problems being encountered while trying to get everyone vaccinated. One issue is the online registration process to request a vaccine. There have clearly been problems with some of the registration systems, but what prompted Biden to suddenly veer off the script and say that minorities, in particular, can’t figure the system out is a total mystery.

I realize that there is still a great deal of poverty in America. However, I also believe that the definition of poverty has changed over the years. At least 90 percent of Americans under the age of 40 are very conversant with electronics, the Internet, working their way through a website, playing video games, etc. Aside from the racial connotations of this ignorant remark, I think the remark also indicates a lack of knowledge of American culture and society. Yes, there are senior citizens (not only in poverty areas) who struggle with the Internet, but that is not a racial issue. Unfortunately, President Biden framed the issue in racial terms. That was not necessary.

The article continues:

The other portion is, a lot of people don’t know how to register. Not everybody in the community, in the Hispanic and African-American community particularly, and in rural areas that are distant or inner-city districts, know how to use, know how to get online to determine how to get in line for that COVID vaccination at the Walgreens.”

Do we really need to say it for the umpteenth time here today? Can you imagine the response if Donald Trump had ever said that? Or any Republican, really. The cries of racism would be echoing from the ceilings of every newsroom in the country. Aren’t statements like that pretty much defined as being racist or did all of those rules go out the window on January 20th?

Perhaps even more amazing was the way Anderson Cooper was willing to stand there on stage, nodding his head and acting as if this was the most normal thing in the world. I’ve had CNN on (muted) all morning while working and unless I missed it, none of their talking heads have brought this up for criticism or discussion. I think we’ve gone to the other side of the rainbow, Dorthy.

For a President who claims to be focused on the ‘systematic racism in America’, this was truly an ignorant remark.

We Are Seriously In Danger Of Losing Our Freedom

Yesterday The New York Post posted an article about some recent comments by Dr. Fauci. Considering the havoc he has wreaked on America with his ‘wisdom,’ I think we need to listen.

The article reports:

Dr. Anthony Fauci said it’s possible that COVID-19 vaccines will become mandatory in order to travel to other countries or attend school.

“Everything will be on the table for discussion,” Fauci, who will be chief medical adviser to President-elect Joe Biden, told Newsweek.

The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases stressed that it’s “not up to me to make a decision,” but added that “these are all things that will be discussed [under the Biden administration].”

“I’m not sure [the COVID-19 vaccine] going to be mandatory from a central government standpoint, like federal government mandates,” Fauci said, though he added that he’s “sure” that some individual institutions will require the shot.

Fauci said vaccine requirements in schools are “possible,” but they would come from mandates at the state or city level.

Stop and think a minute. All vaccines have some risk. The Covid vaccine uses a new technology that targets RNA. The vaccine has been developed and tested in the past year. There is no one who was vaccinated more than 10 months ago. We have no idea what the impact of the vaccine is ten years after you have had it. School children are not at risk or getting or spreading the disease–that has been scientifically established. Why would you want a mandate to require a Covid vaccine for children to attend school? That seems rather draconian.

I can honestly say that I don’t want the government requiring me to follow any specific medical protocol. That should be between me and my doctor. I don’t want to see the day in America where I can be stopped anywhere and asked for my vaccination papers, but that is where we are headed if people like Dr. Fauci have their way. Now I can almost hear the pro-abortionists screaming ‘my body, my choice,’ but the choice not to take a vaccine involves only my body. There is not another life within me that I will kill by not taking the vaccine. That is the difference.
