There’s Been A Pole Shift On Vaccines From Turbo Liberal Wine Moms To Conservatives

Chris Rock is a very funny comedian.  H is civic minded and is fully vaccinated.  H also has the COVID virus.  Seems the vaccine did not work for him.  There are tens of thousands of similar stories—and tens of thousands of deaths of people fully vaccinated. You would think that with such a large failure rate scientists and health officials would rethink a vaccine mandate.  Instead they want to double down and mandate a booster shot—every 5-8 months.  Oh, if you are vaccinated, you must still wear a mask.  It seems like those mandating the vaccine do not believe it works—by their policies, not their words.

““If Donald Trump tells me to take it, I’m not taking it,” Harris said during the Oct. 7, 2020 vice presidential debate.

Cuomo told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos in October 2020 that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and FDA didn’t “have any credibility,” so Americans should be skeptical about a vaccine.

The 2020 election was the second one in a row to feature a left-wing candidate sparking unwarranted fears about vaccines. Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who received 1.1% of the popular vote in 2016, declared that issues relating to “vaccination schedule” and “toxic substances like mercury” had not all been “completely resolved.”

“People do not trust a Food and Drug Administration, or even the CDC for that matter, where corporate influence and the pharmaceutical industry has a lot of influence,” she told The Washington Post.

Under Trump these government agencies were “rogue”.  Under Biden they have become political, hence to be believed.  The good news is that people are fighting back by refusing to take a vaccine the Democrats claimed was worthless—and now we know if a couple of steps above a placebo—just ask Chris Rock.

There’s Been A Pole Shift On Vaccines From Turbo Liberal Wine Moms To Conservatives

Michael Ginsberg Daily Caller,  9/20/21 

In the waning days of the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccine hesitancy and avoidance has emerged as a predominantly right-wing phenomenon, but it wasn’t always that way.

As pharmaceutical companies prepared their COVID-19 vaccines in late 2020, Democrats claimed that the vaccines could not be trusted due to alleged political interference in the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) approval process. Then-candidates Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, as well as media figures like MSNBC’s Joy Reid, suggested that Trump would rush vaccines through the approval process to create a political win, even if they were not safe for Americans to receive.

“If Donald Trump tells me to take it, I’m not taking it,” Harris said during the Oct. 7, 2020 vice presidential debate.

Cuomo told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos in October 2020 that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and FDA didn’t “have any credibility,” so Americans should be skeptical about a vaccine.

The 2020 election was the second one in a row to feature a left-wing candidate sparking unwarranted fears about vaccines. Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who received 1.1% of the popular vote in 2016, declared that issues relating to “vaccination schedule” and “toxic substances like mercury” had not all been “completely resolved.”

“People do not trust a Food and Drug Administration, or even the CDC for that matter, where corporate influence and the pharmaceutical industry has a lot of influence,” she told The Washington Post.

Stein’s position is embraced by some others on the far left. Actor Jim Carrey, a self-described socialist, slammed vaccines as “poisoning kids with mercury” following California’s decision to tighten vaccine requirements due to a 2015 measles outbreak traced to Disneyland. The disease spread to 17 other states, infecting 125 people.

Southern California was a repeated hot spot for whooping cough in the 2010s, and doctors blamed the area’s low vaccination rates. The state reported over 10,000 cases in 2014. Los Angeles County had more than 10% of the infections, with the large numbers driven by low vaccination rates of children in some of the area’s most prestigious schools, according to an analysis conducted by The Hollywood Reporter (THR). Multiple preschools had whooping cough vaccination rates of less than 50%, THR found, with the least vaccinated clustered in neighborhoods like Beverly Hills and Malibu.

The U.S. as a whole has repeatedly broken measles records. The country set a 20 year measles case record in 2014 with 667 infections. Seventy percent of the people who contracted the disease went unvaccinated. Five years later, the U.S. broke the thousand-case mark for the first time since 1992, with 1,282 infections.

Deep blue states such as California, Oregon and Washington have all suffered measles outbreaks in recent years. Clark County, Washington, declared a public health emergency in January of 2019 following a measles outbreak, confirming 71 cases. Neighboring Multnomah and Clackamas counties, in Oregon, reported 23 cases. Fifty-one percent of Clark County residents voted for President Joe Biden in 2020, as did 79% of Multnomah County residents and 54% of Clackamas County residents.

Illustrating the trans-partisan nature of vaccine skepticism, former President Donald Trump met with anti-vaccine activist Robert Kennedy, Jr. shortly after his election, reportedly asking him to chair a commission on “vaccine safety and scientific integrity.” Kennedy, who pushes the debunked claim that vaccines cause autism in children, endorsed Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.

Kennedy, speaks to people from a wide spectrum gathered under the Victory Column in the city center to hear speeches during a protest against coronavirus-related restrictions and government policy on August 29, 2020 in Berlin, Germany. City authorities had banned the planned protest, citing the flouting of social distancing by participants in a similar march that drew at least 17,000 people a few weeks ago, but a court overturned the ban.

Now, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the demographics have shifted. Seventy-six percent of eligible Los Angeles County residents have received at least one shot of COVID-19 vaccine, while 71% of the county’s voters voted against recalling Gov. Gavin Newsom.

  1. I bet that virus is sorry it picked on Chris Rock, He will kill it with laughter. For 10 years Eddie Murphy was the funniest man alive. He farted applause. Richard Pryor had his own planet. And there you have it, the three funniest men who ever lived and they were all black. The reason they were so funny is that their environment formed the way they looked at things, that and the fact that they redefined genius. Two of them are still hilarious but now they’re rich. It’s different when you’re not hungry.

    • Chris Rock will need to kill it–whether with laughter or ivermectin.
      Because he’s vaccinated (months ago) and the vaxx sure didn’t protect him.

  2. To be fair:
    1) Unlike “Turbo Liberal Wine Moms”, conservatives are ONLY against this one vaccine.
    2) Even when TLWMs were hating on vaccines conservatives may have disagreed and even mocked them but we never advocated jailing them, forcing them to be fired from their jobs, refusing them entry to stores and so on.
    3) Even though we thought the TLWMs were wrong on vaccines, when pushed conservatives would agree that perhaps TLWMs might be correct, we just needed to see more evidence than we had gotten thus far.
