(Natural News) Without a doubt 2020 has been one of the oddest, and most loathed, years in the history of our country. But nothing has been as strange as the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Republican governors who once claimed to cherish freedom, liberty and personal responsibility, embraced lockdowns of their economies. But the behavior by Democrats has been especially educational.
As for coronavirus-related lockdowns, Democrats unleashed their inner authoritarian selves and not only imposed them, but prolonged them month after month, where even today restrictions remain in effect, despite what the lockdowns have done to local and state economies.
Democrats especially have long pushed to have kids in school as much as possible — expanding attendance to begin at ‘pre-K’ and have students actually in school buildings from dawn to dusk so that ‘government’ educators replace parents as providers, educators and caretakers. But now, the left-wing teachers unions and liberal parents are decrying (and fighting) decisions by school boards and administrators to reopen, even though ‘the science’ has long shown that children and healthy teens are not at any risk of getting a harmful case of COVID-19.
Also, Democrats long embraced mandatory vaccination programs and schemes, claiming that ‘the public good’ demands such mass poisoning of the population. But now that President Trump has announced a vaccine is close for the novel coronavirus, because the left is stricken with Trump Derangement Syndrome (for which there does not appear to be a cure, much less a treatment), suddenly ‘vaccine ‘em all’ Democrats have turned into anti-vaxxers. (Related: Extensive history of “pharmaceutical scandals” deterring Chinese people from getting flu shots.)
The media is so desperate to get President Trump out of office they are actually willing to scare vulnerable Americans into not taking a vaccine that could save their lives. Earlier this month, the big three networks touted Kamala Harris warning Americans not to trust Trump with a vaccine. Yesterday, Biden came out with his own dangerous message telling Americans to not take any vaccine that comes out while Trump’s in office.
On ABC’s Good Morning America [last week], White House correspondent Cecilia Vega and anchor George Stephanopoulos spent a good deal of time deflecting blame from the Democrat ticket sowing fear about a COVID vaccine to project it was actually being “politicized” by President Trump.
How do you ‘politicize’ a vaccine? Once again, we need only to turn to the lunatic left, which has completely taken over the Democratic Party.
During an appearance earlier this month on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Harris went unchallenged when she actually told Americans not to trust any vaccine that came out of the Trump administration.
“It would have to be a credible source of information that talks about the efficacy and the reliability of whatever he’s talking about. I will not take his word for it,” she said.
Wow. And this after her party badgered the Trump administration all summer long about waiting to reopen the country and revitalize our battered economy until a vaccine was developed.
Obviously, they didn’t take the president at his word when he said earlier this year as the outbreak in the U.S. deepened that his administration would develop a vaccine in record time.
Speaking of politicizing a vaccine, the same garbage media that let Harris get away with frightening people away from a potentially effective treatment, thus, in effect, killing them, then suggested to the CEO of Pfizer, which is leading the development of a vaccine, that Trump was politicizing a vaccine because he was touting it ahead of the election.
“The President said … ‘We are going to have a vaccine very soon, maybe even before a very special day,’ which was an illusion apparently to election day. How concerned are you about a comment like that?” “Today” show co-host Savannah Guthrie asked Albert Bourla, president of Pfizer.
Look, that may be true — there may be some political advantage for the president if he can get an effective treatment to the people before the elections. But that also assumes that Trump wants to harm Americans, which is patently absurd.
Also, accusing Trump of vaccine politics while letting Harris off the hook for playing vaccine politics is as hypocritical as it can get. But it proves again that Trump Derangement Syndrome can make Democrats twist themselves into knots to justify opposing him no matter what.
