The Mandatory Vaccine Insanity Must Stop


Nothing about our overlords’ response to the Covid-19 pandemic has made any sense, so why should we expect any more in their approach to vaccines? Ever true to form, they have bungled and stumbled their way into not just failing to end the pandemic, but creating historic mistrust of the medical establishment in an ever-growing segment of the population. These geniuses have also succeeded in turning what was once a tiny faction of anti-vaxxers into what could very well be becoming a burgeoning political movement. Nice job, pinheads.

How did something that most of the world thought would be a shining bright spot in a sea of darkness over the past year and a half turn into – like masking – yet another highly charged political issue? It wasn’t supposed to be this way, obviously, and it wouldn’t have been this way had the vaccines worked as advertised to us in the Spring, when people were lining up to get the jab and Covid rates were so low the CDC was even forced to temporarily do away with masking recommendations (but only for the vaccinated, wink wink). Sure, there were rumblings from former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson about disturbing data from Israel, but the rest of us were all but certain the worst was behind us and normal life was just around the corner.

Then, the freight train hit. Turns out, Berenson was right, yet again, as he has been virtually the entirety of this pandemic. (These days Twitter doesn’t censor and ban people for being WRONG, but rather for being TOO RIGHT about the WRONG THING.) The vaccines were leaky as a sieve, and reinfections and transmissions among the vaccinated were increasing at an alarming rate. Almost overnight, the messaging went from vaccines preventing contraction and transmission to keeping people out of the hospital and the morgue. And even then, only for a few months until you get your booster.CARTOONS | AF BRANCOVIEW CARTOON 

Remember those long car lines and your Branch Covidian Facebook friends posting about how they couldn’t wait until their age group was called, then later posting disturbing pictures of their ‘Fauci ouchie’ band-aids right beside their even more disturbing Dr. Fauci bobblehead dolls? In a period of weeks, we saw a medical intervention go from being in peak demand to President Puddinhead’s patience with a third of the population “wearing thin.” The carrot hasn’t worked, so now they’re moving to the stick.

But why? Why does the entire population need to be jabbed with a shot that only protects them, especially one with such a high side effect profile? It might be one thing if the vaccines actually did prevent contraction and especially transmission of a virus deadly enough to warrant such measures. If these were sterile vaccines and the disease were more dangerous than the relatively mild (for the vast majority) Covid-19, there *could* be a case for mandates. We could debate it and I might disagree, but there would at least be a case. For example, it would have been difficult to argue against a vaccine mandate for smallpox, which killed 30% of those who contracted it and was stopped dead in its tracks by the vax. 

But this virus isn’t smallpox, and these vaccines aren’t the vaccines that eradicated that disease. Not. Even. Close. These are, at best, therapeutics that prevent severe illness and death for a few months. At best. At worst, they are causing antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE) and actually making the pandemic worse over the long haul (If you’re unfamiliar with ADE, listen to The Blaze host Steve Deace’s interview with Dr. Ryan Cole on 9/21/21. It’s pretty scary stuff and I hope it ends up being wrong, but it’s certainly a theory that fits the data so far and is worth listening to.)

To add insult to injury, and a bit more injury just for fun, why do those who have already contracted the virus (the naturally immune) need a vaccine for something their bodies have already fought, especially when it’s been proven that side effects are WORSE for them? Why do young boys have to take it when it’s been proven that their risk of hospitalization or death from vaccine-induced myocarditis is GREATER than their risk from Covid? Why are the vaccines they are shoving down everyone’s throat, including the boosters, geared toward the original virus instead of Delta? It’s all absolutely insane, yet these discredited clowns stubbornly continue down the same path like no better one is available.

Unless the courts strike it down, soon every worker who works for a firm with more than 100 employees will have to be vaccinated or undergo a weekly Covid test. Already, major events and conferences are requiring this (including one I’ll be at next week). Healthcare workers who have put themselves at risk the entirety of the pandemic – many if not most of whom are naturally immune – are literally being fired in the MIDDLE OF A LABOR CRISIS for refusing to take the jab (in New York’s case, forcing ‘authorities’ to consider calling in the National Guard to ensure some level of patient care). 

But again, it’s all nonsense. Their actions and policies pretend that the vaccines are sterile and those who are vaccinated can’t spread it, when anyone who can read the news knows none of that is true. If anything, it is the vaccinated who should produce clear Covid tests, since masked symptoms mean they are much more likely to spread the virus asymptomatically. Consider this comment from user “FloridaHSMom” on my previous column about governments’ futile effort to fight the virus:

I have a friend whose grandmother was vaccinated. She got the virus but had no symptoms. Family went to visit her in their home state of Tennessee. Her sons were with her for a special day visit, because they were from out of town. Then they all went back home to their various states. They then gave it to their kids and grandkids. All in all, grandma infected 45 people or more. One vaccinated person infected 45 people.

How many more scenarios like this have played out all over the world over the past several months? If you think this is an isolated incident, I’ve got some plane tickets to Australia to sell you. 

Vaccine mandates and coercion need to end. They are unscientific on every level and don’t take into account individual health profiles and risks, nor our God-given bodily autonomy. As much as our overlords would like to treat us as such, humans aren’t robots, and we certainly aren’t mindless, obedient sheep. However, to these morons and the ginormous hammer we as a society have gifted them with, EVERYTHING looks like a nail.
