Vaccines and Mandates Could Be the Undoing of the Democratic Party

Covid vaccines are uniting Americans across political lines. It's the one thing many Democrats and Republicans agree on.

This article refers to the Covid treatments as “vaccinations.” It’s important to note that these medical interventions are not vaccines. They do not prevent infection or transmission but are rather life-protecting therapies for at risk-groups designed to reduce the onset of severe symptoms, like seasonal influenza shots.

Calling it “arbitrary and capricious,” the New York Supreme Court struck down New York City’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for public workers, ruling in favor of 16 unvaccinated city workers who had sued following their termination. Their reason? The vaccines failed to prevent infection and transmission.

Fresh on the heels of this recent decision, not everyone is paying attention, especially Kathy Hochul, the incumbent Governor of New York since 2021 and a Democrat. As an engineer of the NYC mandate in question, here’s what she had to say in a recent debate about her policy to dismiss workers who chose not to be vaccinated against Covid.

It’s a brave statement in the face of mounting evidence that not only New York, but the entire United States was at fault for coercing vaccination compliance and in many instances, mandating Covid vaccines. It is also, in view of recent events, politically short sighted and potentially disastrous for public health and related services in New York.

In the last month we have had confirmation from Pfizer of a fact many of us within the industry were well aware of almost two years ago. The Covid vaccines don’t prevent transmission. For those having a difficult time with this, let’s break it down into its simplest form.

Vaccinated people have always been able to contract and spread the SARS-COV2 virus that leads to Covid.

Spare a thought for all those vaccinated airline passengers, happily munching away without their masks in a sealed steel cannister.

A perfect storm

Data is now being released daily that is unraveling the best efforts of all involved to preserve the official Covid vaccine narrative. Couple this with the increased visibility of the vaccine injured across all forms of social media, and you have a problem, Houston. One which the orchestrators of the vaccine mandates seem to be wishing away rather than dealing with.

October has seen social media and news outlets flooded with warnings the Democrats have largely failed to heed.

  • Pfizer announced at an EU Committee convened to investigate Covid that their vaccines were never tested for preventing transmission (link provided above)
  • Possibly with the worst timing ever, the CDC unanimously approved the Covid vaccine for use in children under five and added it to the official list of childhood vaccines in the US, basing their decision on what can only be described as “hugely questionable” clinical trials. An uproar followed, with members of the public and political figures stepping into the melee. Fact-checkers published articles assuring the public that individual states could decide whether the child vaccine would be compulsory, but the damage was already done.
  • Rochelle Walensky, the CDC director, fully vaccinated and boosted, announced she had Covid. This news was interspersed on social media with earlier clips from 2021 of her assuring the public they would not contract Covid or transmit the virus if they had been vaccinated. The clip below shows President Biden, Rochelle Walensky and Rachel Maddow doubling down on the official narrative.

President Biden has just received a booster dose in this week and made this statement shortly after to the media.

“It will be one injection of the corona vaccine every year, if you get it you are protected and if you don’t, you are putting yourself and others at risk.”

It shows a continued inability across Democratic party lines to address the rapid unravelling of the official narrative as it doubles down on inaccurate and misleading statements relating to the vaccines, their efficacy and ignores their documented dangers. Ego, bravado, legal liability and a host of others factors are preventing the Democrats, who are now associated with Covid policy, from owning up to what each of their constituents already knows.

We are now at point in the evolution of Covid that suggests a simple path forward. Continued “vaccination”, or let’s call it what it really is – immunization – for at-risk groups, perhaps on a seasonal basis, as the SARS-COV2 virus doesn’t appear to be going anywhere soon, and encouraging the public to continue wearing masks in crowded areas. There were numerous reasons for the huge reduction in influenza cases in 2020 and 2021. Schools were closed (these are recognized as the primary source of “flu” infections), people were holed up in their houses, and, then when we did venture out, we were masked. It helped slow the spread of both Covid and influenza.

The Democrats are hemorrhaging support because of their inability to acknowledge past mistakes and it’s questionable if many even realize it. Indeed, the Republicans do. Confidence in the political system will be at a premium in 2022. To repeat falsehoods in the face of irrefutable facts is tantamount to political suicide. That alienates voters, voters the Democrats can ill afford to lose at this pivotal point in American history.

With voting for midterms gathering momentum, sticking to the facts as they emerge, acknowledging past mistakes and pledging to do better, may well serve the Democratic party more effectively than their current head-in-the-sand approach.

There is an unprecedented groundswell of cross-party support among the public for an end to the official Covid narrative. Republicans on the fence may well elect to climb back down, and their Democrat neighbors may soon be knocking on their doors. There is a fundamental difference between voting for an idiot and a liar; in this instance, people consider their lives to be at stake. A reckoning awaits those currently in power, and as with most unpleasant things, it is best dealt with now than left to fester.

Truth, at this point, is the only way forward for the Democrats. They may yet choose to eschew it.
