Funny how the same sentiment that would get you banned from social media, reviled in police society, and transformed into a pariah is okay if you package it in a political agenda that the Democrats find crucial and in animosity toward President Trump.
Asked by CNN’s Dana Bash in a clip released Saturday whether she would get a vaccine that was approved and distributed before the election, Harris replied, “Well, I think that’s going to be an issue for all of us.”
“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,” she continued in the clip from an exclusive interview airing Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” at 9 a.m. ET. “I will not take his word for it.”
“If past is prologue that they will not, they’ll be muzzled, they’ll be suppressed, they will be sidelined,” Harris said. “Because he’s looking at an election coming up in less than 60 days and he’s grasping to get whatever he can to pretend he has been a leader on this issue when he is not.”
Imagine the response if President Trump had raised questions about a vaccine for political reasons. There would be urgent calls to censor him on social media and warnings that if he isn’t censored people will die.
Meanwhile Senator Kamala Harris, the Democrat nominee says the same thing, and there are reactions varying between shrugs and cheers. And no censorship.
Bottom line, Kamala and CNN are spreading doubt about the efficacy of a vaccine for political reasons. They have the right to do so. Or at least that was one of the rights we used to have before it was determined that arguing with “public health experts” wasn’t covered by the First Amendment, even well before the pandemic.
And that ban, if it exists, should apply across the board. It obviously doesn’t.
Expressing skepticism about a vaccine is all but illegal, unless it can be used to hurt President Trump. These are the rules and like all rules of the ruling class they only apply one way.
