The mainstream media continues to gaslight the public with stories like this one from AP News on January 4, 2022 titled Why are so many vaccinated people getting COVID-19 lately?:
"People might mistakenly think the COVID-19 vaccines will completely block infection, but the shots are mainly designed to prevent severe illness, says Louis Mansky, a virus researcher at the University of Minnesota."
Whatever could've given people such a mistaken impression?
"[Y]ou're not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations." 📺
"[O]ur data from the CDC today suggests, um, you know, that vaccinated people do not carry the virus, don't get sick, and that it's not just in the clinical trials but it's also in real world data." 📺
"Now we know that the vaccines work well enough that the virus stops with every vaccinated person." 📺
"The risk is extremely low of getting infected, of getting sick, or of transmitting it to anybody else, full stop." 📺
"It's official: Vaccinated people don't transmit COVID-19" 📺
"[W]idespread vaccination is a critical tool to help stop transmission." 📺
"The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine has not been approved or licensed by the U.S. FDA but has been authorized for emergency use to prevent COVID-19 in individuals 16+." [emphasis added] 📺
UPDATE: Setting aside these unequivocal yet fallacious statements from leading public figures, if the COVID vaccine was indeed "mainly designed to prevent severe illness" rather than to prevent infection or transmission, then why was it mandated in the first place? How can the unvaccinated pose a risk to the vaccinated if the vaccine was "safe and effective"? In short, what was all this about?
Noam Chomsky says the unvaccinated should just remove themselves from society: 'How can we get food to them?' asks Chomsky. 'Well, that's actually their problem'
Keith Olbermann: "We have to stop coddling the morons who will not get the shot. We start by calling them what they are. They are all snowflakes, and cowards, and idiots, and losers, and most importantly, they are afraid." 📺
Sean Penn Talks COVID-19 Anti-Vaxxers, Plus: Working with Daughter Dylan on ‘Flag Day’: "At this point it seems criminal to me... If someone choose not to be vaccinated, that they should choose to stay home, not go to work, not have a job..."
Trudeau calls the unvaccinated racist and misogynistic extremists: "This leads us, as a leader and as a country, to make a choice: Do we tolerate these people?"
Happily, the dawn of a new, saner day may be approaching:
Mark Zuckerberg on Lex Fridman Podcast #383: "Um, just take some of the stuff around COVID earlier on in the pandemic where there were real health implications, but there hadn't been time to fully vet a bunch of the scientific assumptions. And, you know, unfortunately I think a lot of the kind of establishment on that kind of waffled on a bunch of facts and asked for a bunch of things to be censored that in retrospect ended up being, you know, more debatable or true. And that stuff is really tough, right? Really undermines trust in... in that." 📺
