According to President Joe Biden’s most recent speech, if you’re not vaccinated, you’re a murderer. At the recent CNN Presidential Town Hall, Biden shared that one of his biggest concerns was the people who are trying to make vaccines a “political issue.” He then went on to mock unvaccinated Americans and pretended to be one, claiming that he has the “freedom” to kill people with COVID-19. According to Biden, refusing an experimental jab just means you want to put others’ lives at risk.
“Two things that concern me, one are those who just try to make this a political issue. Freedom. ‘I have the freedom to kill you with my COVID.’ No, come on, freedom? Number one. Number two, the second one is that you know, the gross misinformation that’s out there,” Biden said.
Biden used “freedom” as a running joke to indicate those against the vaccine, even though freedom is one of the bedrock principles of this nation. He even went so far as to suggest that he supports vaccine mandates “without hesitation” for first responders, even if it means letting them go for “noncompliance.”
Critics pushed back that the American people should not have to concede their medical freedom to the federal government. They state that following Biden’s mandate just means that we all agree that Washington bureaucrats have the right to tell us what to do and put into our bodies. What happened to “my body, my choice?”
U.S Rep. Elise Stefanik did not hold back in criticizing things that Biden said during the CNN Town Hall. She said it was “absurd” and “un-American” for the President to take such an extreme stance, especially when so many people have been hesitant in taking the COVID-19 vaccine.
“My reaction is this is absolutely absurd and sadly it’s very typical of Joe Biden and the Biden administration to attack Americans’ everyday freedoms. First of all, they’re turning their backs on law enforcement officers and first responders, who put their lives and their health on the line every single day, particularly during the COVID pandemic,” Rep. Stefanik said.
She went on to say that they’ve seen walkouts in hospitals and community health centers, adding that there are rural hospitals that can’t even deliver children anymore due to the staffing shortages. Stefanik emphasized how Biden was attacking the “everyday freedom” of hardworking Americans and that it is unconstitutional.
Stefanik said she encourages every American to have important conversations with their doctor and that they are invested in promoting vaccines. She notes how “every person situation is different” and that many people have already developed natural immunity after contracting the virus, adding that the mandates need to have flexibility.
Rep. Stefanik also called on New Yorkers to stand up and demand better leadership from their mayors, governors, and the president, adding that his remarks against freedom are “terrifying.” She emphasized how fully vaccinated people are still spreading the virus and that “unvaccinated people” aren’t infected, people.
Critics point out how ironic it is that the first responders, along with a stream of federal workers, were considered essential and required to work, but post-vaccine they are now expendable. They can’t even push legitimate reasons anymore for “stopping the spread” so they restrain themselves from speaking to the reasons. They push emotional cues and use media narratives to force compliance on the country.
