Federal Government Is Number One Cause of Vaccine Hesitancy
[Red State] The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a mockery of freedom. For more than a year, the federal government (and several state governments) forced Americans to hunker down in isolation, all in the name of combatting a virus that isn’t as deadly as we once thought. For the majority of Americans under the age of 65 (without certain co-morbidities) COVID-19 is about as lethal as the flu. However, the government’s draconian measures and the media’s unending fearmongering made many Americans think COVID-19 was akin to the bubonic plague.

Unfortunately, information about the COVID-19 virus, its origins, and risk factors have been contorted and manipulated into mistruths by our government and Fourth Estate.

On June 22, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) spoke at a Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing titled, "Vaccines: America’s Shot at Ending the COVID-19 Pandemic." Dr. Paul had this to say, "I agree with you that misinformation is leading to vaccine hesitancy, and that probably the largest area of misinformation is coming from the government regarding natural immunity."

Dr. Paul also said there is evidence that shows natural immunity is possibly more effective than the vaccine and conservative estimates from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show more than 100 million Americans have natural immunity. In other words, we may be well past herd immunity, which calls into question the campaign to vaccinate all Americans, even those with natural immunity, and children.

#1 Well, no national institution has exactly distinguished itself when it comes to COVID. Given how well their 'science' from last year has aged, one might reasonably be skeptical about the current 'science.'

#2 What do you suppose the body count will be with the people who get the jab every time they go through McDonalds?

#3 Obviously, you guys didn't get the memo. According to National People's Radio (NPR) and numerous, strangely similar letters to the local hippy weekly, vaccine hesitancy is caused by the fact that over 60% of Republicans believe that the Kung Flu is a hoax.

#4 After all this time our "Top Men" still haven't developed a consensus on the definition and extent of natural immunity to COVID-19 and particularly why so very few of those <= 18 get sick from it. The MSM studiously avoid publicizing either of these deficits among the "experts".

#5 As soon as their work is to shape policy, they are then politicians, whatever their background may be.

I find it interesting all the different methods to Beg, Bribe, of Shove people into getting the vax. Seems to be the percentage of people who got the jab, or the perception of percentage, is way below what The Experts feel is the minimum to justify their policies.

And it also appears, the more disarmed the citizenry, the more draconian the measures to force compliance are.

All very strange for The Most Lethal Plague Death Murder Virus Evah.

#6 I've had to explain this to several people:
It's not that I don't believe you.
It's that I don't trust you.
