Vaccine Mandates Are A Dangerous Absurdity

Tucker Carlson lays out the hypocrisy and absurdity of the proposed Biden administration vaccine mandate.

Carlson: Have you been reading the news recently? How would you describe to your grandchildren the moment we’re living through?

If you’re looking for a single snapshot that perfectly distills the pure, hallucinogenic absurdity of the moment we’re living in, consider the Biden administration’s new guidance on COVID. We learned yesterday that America’s children will spend yet another year with covered faces. This, despite the fact that masks are demonstrably terrible for kids, and kids face no meaningful threat from coronavirus. Doesn’t matter. The White House says kids have to mask up. And so they will.

Do you support individual military members being able to opt out of getting the COVID vaccine?

We also learned this week that the administration will force federal employees to take the COVID vaccine. This mandate will start with government health care workers. Some of these health care workers – for reasons that no one has bothered to explain – have so far refused to get the shot.

But now, Kamala Harris will make them. Ponder that for a moment. Willie Brown’s girlfriend is claiming she knows more about medicine than doctors and nurses do. She’s an expert on the subject. So, by the way, is her 78-year-old business partner, the one who seems adrift in fantasy a lot of the time, and tends to nod out in mid-sentence. He’s a medical expert too. He explained that, once you’ve had the vaccine, you don’t need to wear a mask.

JOE BIDEN: I think it’s a great milestone. A great day. It’s been made possible by the extraordinary success we’ve had in vaccinating so many Americans so quickly. … When your country asked you to get vaccinated, you did. The American people stepped up. You did what I consider to be your patriotic duty. That’s how we’ve gotten to this day. … If you’ve been fully vaccinated, you no longer need to wear a mask. Let me repeat: If you are fully vaccinated, you no longer need to wear a mask.

“Let me repeat: If you are fully vaccinated, you no longer need to wear a mask.” And we believed that. It made sense. That was the settled science just two months ago, in May. Only Russian spies and White supremacists questioned that science. Of course, you don’t need a mask once you’ve had the vaccine. Why would you? The COVID vaccine is a miracle, like the moon landing. It’s foolproof. It’s all you need. We actually believed that, because why wouldn’t we? It made sense…

Max Boot of the Washington Post, the dumbest columnist ever to work at that newspaper, just explained the “progressive” case for forced vaccinations on Twitter. “Words I never thought I’d write: Saudi Arabia is being more progressive than America,” Boot wrote. “Saudis will need to show proof of vax to enter schools, shops, malls, restaurants, concerts, public transport.”

Oh, that’s progressive. Forcing people to take medicine they don’t want to take. By the way, the vaccination rate in Saudi Arabia is far lower than the vaccination rate in the United States. But they’re more progressive, somehow…

If you want us to have confidence in your medicine, then tell us the full truth. But they won’t. They’ve been telling us for six months the vaccine is perfect. But clearly, in some cases, it doesn’t work. Don’t take it from us. That’s not our theory. Take it from the man who created COVID himself.

FAUCI: Now, that we have a delta variant, that has changed the entire landscape. Because when you look at the level of virus in the nasal pharynx of a vaccinated person who gets a breakthrough infection with delta, it is exactly the same as the level of virus in an unvaccinated person who`s infected. That`s the problem. So, those data are very compelling. And that triggered the change in the CDC guideline.

The level of virus is “exactly the same as the level of virus in an unvaccinated person.” What? What does that even mean? We’re not going to speculate. But if this administration is trying to reassure the country and justify forcing people to take medicine they don’t want, maybe they should wake up and figure out what they’re trying to say, and then explain it to people.
