Time and again, we’ve seen Democrats use science as a weapon. Don’t like having your civil liberties taken from you? Ask to see the proof that cloth masks work? You’re “anti-science” according to the Dems.
According to the Democrats, you should never question “the experts,” unless you’re Kamala Harris, and you’re trying to beat a President who is on track to provide a science-backed vaccine faster than anyone could have predicted.
Then it’s ok to be anti-vax.
When asked by CNN’s Dana Bash whether she’d take a vaccine, Kamala responded: “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. I will not take his word for it.”
This is naked political opportunism. If a Democrat president had pushed for a vaccine, you can bet that anyone who raised a question about it would be condemned as anti-science, called a murderer, and excoriated in the press.
If a Democrat had come up with the vaccine, it would no doubt be mandatory, and Kamala Harris would be leading the charge to punish those who refuse to comply.
As it is, the Democrats are literally rooting for the vaccine to fail. It’s almost like they’d rather have people die than Trump get credit.
The Washington Examiner ran a scorching editorial on this subject and it’s worth quoting. They say:
Harris’s statement is an irresponsible one that could have dangerous ramifications for overcoming the coronavirus and for public health in general.
Even a safe and effective vaccine may not work for everybody. So the only way to succeed is for a large enough percentage of the population to take the vaccine to achieve herd immunity.
Harris’s comments, even if she backtracks, fuel distrust. Now, even if the FDA approves a vaccine and public health officials vouch for it, people will be more suspicious of whether they were pressured into doing so and whether dissenting voices were “muzzled.”
