The governor of Maryland, who is a Republican, says:
“Those of you who refuse to get vaccinated at this point are willfully and unnecessarily putting yourself and others at risk of hospitalization and death . . . “You are the ones threatening the freedoms of all the rest of us, the freedom not to wear masks, to keep our businesses open and get our kids back in school.”
The sick animal (look at him) also decrees that everyone who works for the state government will be injected else be fired.
This is why Democrats always win. There is no opposition to them. Republicans – as a class – are Democrats. Just slightly less so, though sometimes even more so – as in the case of Maryland’s Republican governor.
His statement effuses every dogma of the Left, most particularly the Left’s tactic of gaslighting the victim. It is the people who wish to be let alone – and who wish to let others alone – who are causing the trouble. They are “threatening the freedoms of all the rest of us” – by insisting upon their right to be let alone.
Here is another Democrat’s statement to that effect:
“The fact is, if you get infected, even if you are without symptoms, you very well may infect another person who may be vulnerable … So in essence, you are encroaching on their individual rights.”
Who needs Hogan – the governor of Maryland – when you have Fauci, the Gesundheitsfuhrer of America?
It does not matter that the Unvaxxed (and UnMasked) haven’t done anything to “willfully and unnecessarily” put anyone – including themselves – “at risk of hospitalization and death.” What matters is the deranged, the psychotic, fear of weaponized hypochondriacs that they might. Facts about the attenuated danger to most healthy people presented by the “virus” – vs. the “vaccine” – are drowned in a sea of incipient pogrom inflammatory language.
He might as well come out and just say it: die Juden sind unsere ungluck. The meaning being the same.
No mention of the risk of hospitalization and death which attends being injected with a “vaccine” that isn’t “safe” or “effective” and which intelligent, responsible people aren’t willing to take those risks for – over a sickness that presents practically no meaningful threat of hospitalization or death for 99.8 percent of them.
And nearly 100 percent of children.
It is insanity. But official insanity, issuing from the mouth of a sitting governor. It makes the flesh creep. And it depresses the soul – because it issues from the mouth of a Republican, the putative opposition to the Democrats.
Emphasis on putative as opposed to actual.
These Republicans are the same predictably poltroonish ideologically empty suits who did nothing to repeal Obamacare but talked up replacing it – with a new “plan” (theirs) as opposed to leaving people free to make their own plans. The same jabbering flag-humpers who stopped paying more than lip service to the freedom of the press, of association, of the right to keep and bear arms, of the right to be free from unreasonable searches decades ago and became, instead, the milktoast advocates for slightly fewer restrictions of those formerly guaranteed rights, which have become conditional privileges.
They buy the core tenet of the Democratic Left – that of presumptive harm justifying presumptive punishment, whether for “safety” (as in DWI checkpoints and seatbelt laws or the war on various arbitrarily illegal drugs) or in the name of “security” (as per ritual degradation at the airport of all presumptive “terrorists,” which is all of us – though none of them, since there is no gate rape prior to the boarding or Air Force One or other state-owned, for-them-only aircraft).
And now, in the name of “health” – notwithstanding that most of us are healthy and seek to remain so, as by not being injected with a dangerous “vaccine” pushed by a demonic pharmaceutical cartel using the state as its enforcement mechanism.
Healthy kids have died over this. The Democrats say the “care” about “the children.” Republicans care about them even less, if such a thing is conceivable.
But those of us who object to placing healthy kids at risk – of physical and psychological harm – are “threatening the freedoms” of the rest of us. It is epic in the breadth and depth of its table-turning. It is the cry of the wife-beater who exclaims, “Look what you made me do!”
The governor speaks of the freedom to “not wear masks,” which freedom was taken away by people like the governor. And which those who choose not to wear the medically ridiculous devices never demanded that those who find them psychologically comforting be forbidden to wear.
It was the governor-cum-gesundheitsfuhrer who assumed dictatorial power to forbid people to open their businesses, none of which were given the freedom to open them to those who were not forced to enter them. Those who feared the sickness that doesn’t kill 99.8 percent of the healthy population were perfectly free to stay home, to shun human contact, to take whatever steps they felt were warranted to “keep themselves safe.”
But such free choices are anathema to Republicans such as the governor of Maryland.
What matters to Republicans of his sort is the same thing that matters to the Democrats – that is, power. And the use of demagogy to obtain it. The man is either an imbecile – or a tyrant. Which neatly defines what it means to be a Democrat, even one that “identifies” as a Republican.
