Expect a Shortage of Body Bags
By Cliff Kincaid
We often hear Marxist rhetoric about the haves versus the have-nots. But here in America, when it comes to life-saving vaccines, the haves are the have-nots because they don’t want to save themselves. Some rich Americans can get free vaccines, which are in demand around the world, but reject them. Meanwhile, the have-nots want the vaccines but can’t get them.
In Russia, as COVID deaths rise, Russian President Vladimir Putin complains about vaccine hesitancy among the Russian people. “I can’t understand what’s going on,” Putin said. “We have a reliable and efficient vaccine,” said Putin. “The vaccine really reduces the risks of illness, grave complications and death.”
The same thing is true here, although Americans have a better chance of surviving COVID because of the superiority of the American-made vaccines.
The New York Post reported, “Russia became the first country in the world to authorize a coronavirus vaccine in August 2020 and has plentiful supplies. But citizens have been hesitant to take up the jabs, and some have blamed the skepticism on conflicting signals from authorities.”
The paper went on, “While extolling Sputnik V and three other domestic vaccines, state-controlled media often criticized Western-made shots, a message that many saw as feeding doubts about vaccines in general.”
Russia is sowing the seeds of its own disinformation campaign against the Trump “Warp Speed” vaccines.
Communist disinformation against the Western vaccines is permeating American society and has gone around the world, to the point where it is now backfiring on the Russian authorities.
In my previous column, “Russian Communists Oppose American Vaccines,” I looked at this phenomenon. Russian Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov claims that the coronavirus vaccine is part of American billionaire Bill Gates’ “globalist” plot to implant microchips into the population. He is referring to the American-made vaccines, not Sputnik V.
Russian Communist Party members distributed “anti-vaccination leaflets” in Moscow claiming the vaccines include “nanotechnological products that emit electromagnetic fields,” enter the body and kill its recipients.
This claim has been made by some anti-vaxxers in the United States. They say the vaccines make you magnetic and connect humans to the 5G communications networks.
Now, these claims are leading to vaccine hesitancy and anti-vax sentiment in Russia.
Putin says he had received the Sputnik V vaccine and had recommended it for the Russian people. He said it would not be mandatory. But now, with rising deaths from COVID, he says Russia has to speed up the vaccination process.
“Russia has now recorded over 900 deaths a day for seven days in a row,” CNN reported on October 13. “In total, Russia has officially recorded 218,345 coronavirus deaths according to the country's coronavirus task force -- the highest number of deaths in Europe.”
But the real death toll could be even higher due to the way Russia classifies coronavirus deaths, the outlet reported.
The great irony is that the American vaccines were made possible by a refugee from communist Hungary, a scientist by the name of Katalin Karikó. In fact, it was her mRNA research that led to the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. She then went to work as Senior Vice President at BioNTech RNA Pharmaceuticals and is now researching possible cures for human genetic diseases, a field called “mRNA Therapeutics.”
Her discovery changed the history of the pandemic. Millions of lives, born and unborn, have been saved. She should be honored as a pro-life pioneer. The problem is that so many people fail to recognize the miraculous nature of her discovery. These are the people who watch Brannon Howse on Mike Lindell’s “Frank Speech” platform claiming the vaccines are “Mark of the Beast” technology.
Now, with vaccine trials showing that the Pfizer COVID vaccine looks effective for young kids, we are facing another battle – whether to vaccinate 28 million children ages 5 to 11. The opposition will come from the Mike Lindell “conservative” New Agers upset about “Mark of the Beast” mRNA vaccine technology.
Ironically, some of those in opposition to this life-saving plan are already complying with various state laws mandating vaccines for kids. Vaccine preventable diseases include chickenpox, tetanus, measles, mumps, and polio.
Now, coronavirus will be added to the list. It makes common sense. But anti-vaxxers are accepting the communist disinformation and propaganda.
In Russia, they recognize the truth, even as the Communists badmouth the American-made vaccines.
Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, “the pandemic is not going away, it is returning in new waves...the only thing that saves lives is the jab.” He calls the vaccine hesitancy “vaccinophobia.”
A poll by the Levada Center found that 69 percent of Russian doctors and medical specialists trusted Sputnik V as the most safe and effective. But 69 percent is not a high number. By contrast, 96 percent of American doctors think the “Warp Speed” vaccines are so effective that they have become fully vaccinated.
Americans have access to the superior “jab,” the Trump “warp Speed” vaccines. But many who object think they’re smarter than those accepting the life-giving medicine.
I hear from these nitwits all the time.
Expect a shortage of body bags in Russia and America.
