1) Democrats Were Against Trump’s Vaccine Before They Were For It



Democrats and the media are hammering red state voters – especially in the South – for falling behind in vaccinations. They accuse conservatives who are resisting getting vaccinated as “science deniers.” Anti-vaxxers are apparently the new deplorables.

What the media doesn’t report is that according to a Kaiser Family Foundation study, as of July 19, 2001: “Across 40 states, the percent of White people who have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose (48%) was roughly 1.3 times higher than the rate for Black people (36%) and 1.2 times higher than the rate for Hispanic people (41%) as of July 19, 2021.”

But it is true that many working class conservatives are suspect of the vaccine that Biden is badgering them to take. Politico reported on Sunday that “in Alabama and Louisiana, partisan opposition to the vaccine is surging.” Many Trump voters are turning down the vaccine because, as Politico puts it: they are “sick of Democrats who think they know what’s best.” Well, who isn’t? 

We at the HOTLINE are solidly in favor of vaccines for adults and seniors (and we note the US is now at 89.5% of seniors vaccinated with at least one dose, with 46 states over 80%).

But let’s not forget where the skepticism of the safety of the vaccine started.  We picked some of the choice quotes from prominent Democrats last year during Operation Warp Speed about trusting vaccines while Trump was in office. Remember these?

New York governor Andrew Cuomo last September calling for an independent review of the safety of the vaccine:

“Frankly, I’m not going to trust the federal government’s opinion [on the vaccine] and I wouldn’t recommend to New Yorkers based on the federal government’s opinion.”  

Joe Biden, September 2020:

“Let me be clear: I trust vaccines, I trust scientists, but I don’t trust Donald Trump.  At this moment, the American people can’t either….Scientific breakthroughs don’t care about calendars any more than the virus does. They certainly don’t adhere to election cycles. And their timing, their approval and distribution, should never, ever be distorted by political considerations.”

Kamala Harris in the Vice Presidential Debate:

“I will say that I would not trust Donald Trump and it would have to be a credible source of information that talks about the efficacy and the reliability of whatever he’s talking about.”

Democratic Governor of Washington, Jay Inslee, Sept. 2020, when asked if he would support the Operation Warp Speed shot:

“Of course, I’d follow science.  It doesn’t matter when it happens.   But I would have to look at the science, not Donald Trump.  There isn’t one single thing I would ever trust from Donald Trump.”

Our advice to Biden and the CDC: if you want to get more people vaccinated, stop the sanctimony about “following the science” and the constant threats of new lockdowns or mask mandates.

This is quite a range! How is anyone supposed to follow this “science?”
