Politics can be very mean at times, and one of the cruelest things I have ever seen is the almost gleeful way some on the left have reported the deaths of people who were publicly opposed to the COVID-19 vaccine.
The old expression of dancing on someone’s grave comes to mind.
And they have very conveniently been ignoring or refusing to report the deaths of thousands of fully vaccinated people who have died with or from COVID-19.
No one should ever be pleased or happy about any person’s death and especially not just because it supports their political position.
Many who have refused to get the vaccine have been subjected to verbal or even physical abuse or at least very holier than thou comments.
Yet the more one reads about the vaccine, the more one realizes there are serious questions about it.
Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper reported on Sept. 2: “Israel has become the COVID-19 capital of the world despite leading the charge on vaccines.”
Despite being the most vaccinated country, the story said it had a record number of 1892 cases on Sept. 1 alone, and Israel has only 9,000,000 people, one/thirty sixth the size of the U.S.
The Oxford University Clinical Research Group published a study on August 6th that “found vaccinated individuals carry 251 times the load of COVID-19 viruses in their nostrils compared to the unvaccinated.”
Epidemiologist Dr. Peter McCullough wrote that this viral load has the possibility of “potentially transforming them (the vaccinated) into pre-symptomatic super-spreaders.”
And while many on the left seem to believe that only ignorant, uneducated Trump supporters are refusing to be vaccinated, a University of Pittsburg, Carnegie Mellon University study clearly refutes this.
That study, with one million responses, found that the most vaccine-resistant group was people who hold PhDs.
It is unfortunate that the court in Texas refused to hear the lawsuit brought by more than 100 nurses and healthcare workers who did not want to take the vaccine.
And while at this point, over 90,000,000 adult Americans have refused to be vaccinated, it is sad that in a supposedly free country, millions are being forced to be vaccinated when they really do not want to be.
It is ironic that so many pro-choice, pro-abortion fanatics who have always hollered “her body – her choice” have not wanted to give that same freedom of choice to people about vaccines.
I have noticed over the years that liberalism, at its core, is a philosophy that says “I can spend your money better than you can, I can run your life better than you can, so the government should do this for you, and I (the liberal) should run the government.
That is why liberalism has such a hold on people who have very high opinions of themselves.
And it is also true that the further left people go politically, the more arrogant they become, and they just can’t believe that anyone would even question, much less oppose their views.
That is why so many on the far left consider Trump supporters to be domestic terrorists and why many conservatives are denied freedom of speech on college campuses.
Now, many people are not allowed to speak out against vaccines on internet platforms.
Just like the war in Afghanistan was dragged out for years just because it meant more money for the Pentagon and defense contractors, much of the public pressure for vaccines has been fueled by the billions going to Big Pharma.
I went on some congressional trips to very unhealthy countries and have received many types of vaccines, including the Moderna Covid vaccine.
The CDC said several months ago that 94% of so-called COVID-19 deaths have been with co-morbidities that may have been the main cause.
The coronavirus has a 99.7% survival rate for those under 65, and close to 90% of the deaths have been in people 80 or above.
Most older people, and especially if they are overweight, should be vaccinated, but no one in this country should be vaccinated against their will. And it is really terrible for people to be fired if they have religious or other legitimate objections to the COVID vaccine.
