The Diabolical Anti-Vaccine Agenda
By Cliff Kincaid
Political conservative David Bossie has a column on the Virginia governor’s race insisting that Republicans have various winning issues to use against Democrats. But he ignores the impact of the coronavirus. That issue is working to the advantage of Democrats because the Republican Party is being perceived as opposed to the vaccines that were developed under a Republican President by the name of Donald J. Trump.
Figures such as Brannon Howse on Mike Lindell’s “Frank Speech” channel are insisting the vaccines are laying the groundwork for “Mark of the Beast” technology to usher in the anti-Christ.
With such ludicrous assertions getting publicity from the My Pillow founder, a multimillionaire, it’s no wonder that real conservatives opposed to censorship find it hard to fault YouTube for banning videos making the bizarre and unproven claim the vaccines contain microchips.
I am watching this unfold and trying to warn conservatives that they are playing into the hands of their political enemies by opposing Trump’s Warp Speed vaccines. They react by censoring my columns.
An Australian citizen has contacted Alex Berenson with eye-opening information about the political impact of the coronavirus in that country and how traditional conservative voters are going for the left-wing candidates out of concern for their own safety, security, and health.
American conservatives ignore this information at their own peril.
The Australian wrote to Berenson, saying there have been two state elections since the pandemic and “both were won in a landslide by the incumbent left-wing government” which “got all the elderly vote which normally votes conservative…” This person told Berenson that “the elderly vote is the big block” and that “if all the elderly vote against you it is almost impossible to win.” He explained this is the case especially for conservative parties because the elderly citizens “are a big part of their natural base.”
Berenson, a critic of the vaccines, refers to this as a diabolically brilliant political strategy of scaring the elderly. But elderly people have a legitimate reason to be scared. They are fearful for good reason. Nearly 80 percent of coronavirus deaths have been among people age 65 and up, according to Kaiser Health News.
Berenson admits that older people “tend to lean right” and that “they vote.” He then asserts, “Frighten even a small number of those folks into voting for the forever lockdowns and you can make a huge difference electorally.”
Berenson’s position seems to be that attacking these voters for supporting “lockdowns” is smart. That’s a big mistake. That approach will guarantee a Republican wipeout. Perhaps he doesn’t care. But those opposed to a one-party state run by Democrats should start paying attention to the politics of COVID. People want their freedom back but they want to live first. They don’t think chants of “F--- Biden” at football games is a smart political strategy.
An anti-communist friend of mine has sent me articles noting that communist groups in America favor mandatory vaccines. Communists favor mandatory everything. The question is whether mandatory vaccines are necessary in this case. I would prefer that people take the vaccines voluntarily. But during a public health emergency, the law is on the side of the government and mandatory vaccines. That is especially the case with members of the military who volunteer and therefore subject themselves to orders from their superiors. They have no other options, except to quit or seek an exemption in limited circumstances.
Seniors have good reason to be frightened by a virus made in a Chinese lab. One would be crazy not to be frightened by a biological weapon. Republicans are willing to talk about the Chinese origins of the virus. But their natural constituency will vote for “lockdowns” or mandates as long as the Republicans oppose the vaccines that can neutralize the major effects of the deadly SARS-CoV-2.
Berenson acknowledges, “Obviously, this is not just an issue for Australia, but for the US and Europe too - European populations are even older.”
He’s right. And it’s a logical conclusion, based on the information he has provided, that what’s happening in Australia can and probably will happen here. That is, if Republicans are perceived to be opposed to the vaccines, traditional Republican voters will reject Republican candidates.
In regard to the Virginia race pitting Terry Democrat Terry McAuliffe against Republican Glenn Youngkin, vaccines and mandates are big issues. Youngkin is strongly promoting the Trump Warp Speed vaccines, and that may save his campaign.
The Bossie column on Virginia claims, “The survey data indicates that voters in Virginia have significant problems with controversial issues the left is advocating. For example, only 27 percent support teaching the destructive critical race theory in public schools, while a commanding 57 percent oppose the so-called woke curriculum. Additionally, 72 percent would be less likely to vote for a candidate endorsed by an organization that supports defunding the police - an eye-popping statistic for a Democrat in Mr. McAuliffe’s position. And at the federal level, by a margin of 51 percent to 41 percent, Virginians oppose the irresponsible $3.5 trillion socialist wish list legislation that Washington Democrats are pushing.”
He concludes that this information “gives Virginia Republicans reason to be optimistic about their prospects” in the race.
All of those issues matter. But the key factor is whether people can escape or survive the China virus. The figures show that 90 percent of people 65 and older are at least partly vaccinated against the disease. That’s a big number. These are the people turned off by the anti-vax rhetoric of some in the Republican Party. They also don’t want to be lectured by the likes of Dan Bongino or other Fox News stars that they are wearing “face diapers” when they are wearing masks around other people, out of courtesy and concern for the health of others.
Conservatives who insult the vaccinated are playing stupid politics, driving those concerned about the pandemic into the arms of the Democratic Party.
We don’t have to look at Australia for evidence of anti-vaccine rhetoric being a political loser. As I noted in a recent column, California Governor Gavin Newsom’s support of the vaccine was a political winner and he claimed the moral high ground over the Fox News candidate Larry Elder, who opposed vaccine mandates and lost big. A talking head, Elder was known for selling dietary supplements in commercials airing on the channel.
Political commentator Dick Morris predicts that firing the unvaccinated will cause a “huge backlash” against Biden. In fact, a Fox News poll found that majorities favor mask and vaccine mandates. A poll by the Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found that 51 percent “approve of the Biden administration’s plan to require most U.S. workers to get vaccinated or regularly tested for COVID-19,” and only a third, 34 percent, disapprove.
In Canada, the candidate opposed to vaccine mandates got only 5 percent of the vote.
All of these results are a warning to conservatives who think they’re fighting communism and totalitarianism by opposing the vaccines.
Although young people ages 18 to 24 have the lowest rates of vaccination among adults, out of concern about potential side effects, that may be changing with young married couples expecting children. Like the seniors getting the vaccines in record numbers, these young couples want safety and security for their families. One major study finds that COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy passes high levels of antibodies to babies.
So now we find that getting vaccinated actually has a pro-life component. No wonder most Christian leaders such as Franklin Graham endorse and have taken the vaccines.
The conclusion is that, if Republicans on a national level pander to the anti-vaccine crowd, they will go down to a crushing defeat, like Larry Elder did in California. And that means that America as a whole will come to resemble California, where Newsom just signed legislation making vote-by-mail ballots permanent.
True conservatives recognize the vaccines are giving people back the freedom they once took for granted and returning America’s economy to normalcy. They don’t believe the “Mark of the Beast” nonsense being peddled by the hucksters on Mike Lindell’s “Frank Speech” channel.
If truth be told, such “End Times” rhetoric is designed to frighten people, reflecting a truly diabolical agenda among people claiming to be religious. They should pause and rest on one of Lindell’s luxurious pillows before they usher in what they claim to be against.
