Let’s take a second to talk about the facts we know about the COVID-19 vaccine.
First of all, we know it’s not technically a “vaccine” in the traditional sense. A vaccine entails introducing a dead or weakened virus to the host to build antibodies, but this vaccine “teaches” your cells how to deal with the virus and its symptoms.
We also know that this “vaccine” isn’t approved by the FDA. Its manufacturers have been given emergency provisional approval, but the simple fact is that the FDA has not tested these medicines enough for them to be labeled “safe” by the agency.
We also know that if you’re younger than 50 and don’t have a laundry list of comorbidities, your ability to fight off the virus and survive is WELL over 99%. In fact, the numbers don’t get lower than 99% until you hit the age of 70.
We know all of this…
So, can you explain why people who aren’t comfortable with getting the jab are being ridiculed and shunned for their choice?
People who choose to exercise caution with an experimental drug are now the pariahs of society…but that doesn’t make any sense.
It Just Doesn’t Add Up
If this were in regard to any drug that wasn’t being pushed forward by the mainstream media, people would applaud those who were choosing not to take an experimental drug.
And that’s exactly what all of these shots are: experimental.
Yet, we’ve been talking about COVID vaccine passports since the start of the vaccination process. People have been discussing various methods of tracking those who have not had the vaccine and keeping them away from the rest of society.
Again, I ask, “why?”
Did they forget that the survival rate for the VAST majority of our country is over 99%?
Now, does this mean we shouldn’t take precautions?
Of course not! People should take the necessary steps, but those steps shouldn’t have to be taken by healthy people. If you’re in danger because you’re older or have comorbidities, you should absolutely take precautions. But if you’re one of those at very little risk, why should you be forced to take an experimental drug? You should be able to live your life in the way you choose!
You should be able to go out to eat!
You should be able to visit friends!
You should be able to go to a concert!
But you can’t. Not because it’s not safe…but because they won’t let you.
There are some venues that are treating those who have been vaccinated DIFFERENTLY than those who have not—and we just saw this highlighted by a show at Madison Square Garden, one of the world’s most famous venues.
Over the weekend, famed rock band The Foo Fighters performed in front of 20,000 people, filling the historic venue in New York to capacity.
And apparently, all 20K of them were vaccinated—because that was the only way you could get into the show.
The Great Shunning
If you were vaccinated, you got to enjoy an evening of good music and good times.
If you weren’t, you were relegated to the parking lot where non-vaccinated people were protesting the event.
This shunning terrible, but it isn’t against the law… yet.
This is a free-market capitalist society at its worst. It offers private businesses and venues the ability to choose who to serve and who to reject—and if you’re ok with the baker in Colorado NOT making cakes for gay weddings, then you have to be ok with this as well. You can’t pick and choose who to support only when their decision matches up with your personal politics.
And for what it’s worth, I’m ok with the Foo Fighters not allowing unvaccinated people into their venue. I just think it’s going to hurt them in the long run—which stinks, because I personally love them and their music.
However, the thing I think is important going forward with this is whether people uphold the laws of our country or not.
At some point—and I believe it’s happening now—people are going to sue for medical discrimination…and they should, because if you can’t discriminate due to a medical condition, you shouldn’t be allowed to discriminate based on vaccination status.
Either way, it doesn’t matter.
The great shunning has begun.
The only question is: How far will it go and how long with it last?
