Joe Biden has been trying to increase the vaccination rate with completely the wrong move — by imposing mandates. If you treat people badly and tell them you are losing “patience” with them, like they’re children and you’re the domineering parent, as he did, do you really think they are going to be persuaded by your argument? If the hesitation is in part because of concerns about government overreach, the answer then is not more government overreach. But that’s Joe Biden, wrong on everything. The “unifier” was demonizing a whole swath of America.
But Biden is getting back-up from the liberal media who are taking up his authoritarian talking points
Here are CNN’s Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo saying that now it was time to call the unvaccinated “stupid” and to shame them.
CNN’s @DonLemon: Like Trump voters, we should call unvaxxed Americans “stupid” and “start shaming them”

“We have to stop coddling people,” Lemon said, saying “like Trump voters,” they are “stupid.” “It’s time to start shaming them, or leave them behind. Because they’re keeping the majority of Americans behind.”
“Stop it with the ignorance,” Lemon declared. “And we have to stop saying, ‘Oh well you have to listen to people.’ No, you don’t. These people are being harmful to the greater good. You don’t have to listen to a minority of people who are being harmful to the greater good and who are not acting on logic, reason and science.”
“You’re going to question the vaccine, but you’re going to take a horse dewormer,” Cuomo agreed, repeating that same stupid, false talking point against ivermectin which is an anti-parasitic drug for humans. It is prescribed by some doctors for COVID, although it hasn’t been approved for that use by the FDA.
These are CNN’s alleged “news” anchors — pushing the hatred of millions of Americans. “Stop coddling people?” Again, with this perception that they have the right to tell you what to do, that Biden has the right to tell you what to do. That the government can force you to inject something into your body, that it’s no longer a private decision between you and your doctor as it should be. With this, CNN is endorsing this divisive policy to encourage hatred against Americans.
Science? These two have no idea how many people have immunity because they have antibodies because they have had the virus in the past. That’s completely skipped when these characters and, for that matter, when Biden talks about the “science.” But beyond that, it’s none of their business, it’s people’s private medical choice. Not to mention that there are folks who are across the political spectrum — with many on the left not getting vaccinated as well — although these characters want to suggest it’s something that’s only on the right. Many minorities are also unvaccinated for a variety of reasons. Lemon doesn’t even understand that fact, that it’s not about “politics” even though he wants to make it about that to attack those on the right.
Imagine being lectured to, by either of these two guys who are constant purveyors of CNN nonsense and fake news. Talk about the people who have the least possible standing to lecture anyone about science or truth. Cuomo — that same guy who broke his “quarantine” and then sold the public a bill of goods about his emergence from the basement. Not to mention CNN’s part in promoting Cuomo’s scandal-ridden former governor brother who still hasn’t been held to account for his cover-up in regard to the nursing home COVID deaths scandal. CNN hasn’t held Chris Cuomo accountable for his involvement in advising his brother.
If CNN wonders why its ratings continue to crater, it’s nonsense like this, which is pure politics, it isn’t news.
Lemon will get a booster shot in a few weeks and he’ll still bitch about being at risk. https://t.co/haHdoEQsHM

“How can I lose even more viewers than I already have?”
-Don Lemon, probably
Seriously though, it’s amazing how he thinks shaming ordinary Americans is a winning formula. Like, who on earth would want to watch that for two hours every night? https://t.co/afOLV6IObW
