      The view that the unvaccinated are all stupid, primitive and ignorant is getting more difficult to sustain, especially as liberal policy contradicts its own core premises.

      NBA player Jonathan Isaac of the Orlando Magic explains why he is hesitant to take the COVID vaccine at a post-game press conference, Sept. 27, 2021.

      It is virtually a religious belief in the dominant liberal culture that people who do not want the COVID vaccine are stupid, ignorant, immoral and dangerous. As large sectors of the population continue to question or disobey their COVID decrees, they have begun to make more explicit this condescending view.

      Liberals feel free to disparage them as “stupid” notwithstanding long-standing (though diminishing) racial disparities among this group. A CNN headline from last month told part of the story: “Black New Yorkers may have the lowest vaccination rates, but community groups refuse to give up.” Citing data from the city’s health agency, the network reported that “citywide, just 28% of Black New Yorkers between the ages of 18 and 44 are fully vaccinated. The Hispanic community is the second-least fully vaccinated population in that age group, with 49% being fully vaccinated.”

      Two weeks ago, Bloomberg reported that while some of the unvaccinated are unable to get the vaccine (due to work pressures or health conditions), most of them are vaccine-hesitant by choice and continue to reflect racial disparities. Under the headline “U.S. Racial Vaccine Gaps Are Bigger Than We Thought: Covid-19 Tracker,” the news outlet reported: “the White vaccination rate is not as bad as it had seemed and Hispanic communities are lagging more than previously thought.”

      Yet liberal elites continue to call anyone who is unvaccinated “stupid,” ignorant and immoral. On Sunday, New York’s Democratic Governor Kathy Hochul, when announcing her intent to use National Guard soldiers to replace health care workers fired for refusing the vaccine, told her audience: “yes, I know you’re vaccinated, you’re the smart ones.” She then said those who refuse to get the vaccine are not just stupid but have turned their back on God: “there’s people out there who aren’t listening to God and what God wants.” Gov. Hochul added that the vaccine “is from God to us and we must say, thank you, God,” and said to her “smart” vaccinated supporters: “I need you to be my apostles.”

      Oh, the ol’ God is on our side routine rather than well researched and logical information. Smells like desperation.

      I’m an atheist, so is it ok to stay unvaxed? 🤔

      Also, the athlete is right, it makes no sense to tell people that had Covid to get vaxed.

      Teaching to the test, instead of comprehension and critical thinking. Over 650,000 people dead due to misinformation and outright lies, for money and few seem to care.
      If we were to be an ethical country, we would have come up with much better treatments for this pandemic by now.

      We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
      The older we get, the less "Life in Prison" is a deterrent.
      Always wear a proper mask when out and about. The life you save could be both yours and mine.
      Don't forget that the S in IoT stands for Security.

      The overwhelming majority of the dead are elderly, and the rest are mostly the colored and/or poor. I don’t know any of them. In America the people who vote do not know the people who suffer

        Most od the dead were from teenagers to people in their 50’s and 60’s. The party animals and sports nuts. People that like crowds, bars goers, social events, parting in general, concerts, churches.
        Toss in a few babies, preschoolers and those under 12, etc.

          Most of the dead liberals talk about to prove how stupid right-wingers may be under 70, but that’s a different and far smaller number of dead people.

      Anybody ask this New York governor why her god gave us covid in the first place and singled out her state for a heavy dose of it in particular?

      All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.

      If you disagree with me about anything, you are showing your ignorance, lack of education, etc.
