With the integrity of a 5-year-old, the Biden administration naturally takes no responsibility for anything.
Covid-19 vaccination numbers didn’t go as expected, and why should they have a goal in the first place? For a vaccine meant to help you, the propaganda-style messaging is sending alarms to potential recipients. That’s also not the Biden administrations’ fault. The blame is put on misinformation, and they act like it must be silenced.
Americans are typically concerned about any messaging that consists of “you have to” when it pertains to individual rights and liberties. America wasn’t built on political trust. That’s why we have checks and balances. The term “Consent of the Governed” was placed in the Declaration of Independence for a reason.
Data shows that vaccines will have adverse effects on some individuals, but long-term data is still years away. Trump’s administration is primarily responsible for creating and distributing the vaccine, but Trump was different. He gave alternatives to the vaccine. Trump knew that vaccine confidence wasn’t strong and knew that alternative advice should be provided for those who chose not the take the vaccine because that’s the humanitarian thing to do. Biden, on the other hand, only wants you to get vaccinated and sees no other option. According to Kamala Harris, anything less than that is against the Bible who said, “Getting vaccinated is the very essence, the very essence, of what the bible tells us when it says ‘love thy neighbor.’” Really?
Guilting Americans into getting a vaccine using biblical teaching aren’t winning Harris any favors among the religious communities. Outside of religion, the vaccine has done many positive things, but data suggests that you can still receive and pass Covid-19 to others. It seems Harris’ claim is unsubstantiated and should be flagged for misinformation.
Joe Biden also claimed that Facebook was “killing people” by not stopping the spread of misinformation. Dylan Byers, through Twitter, summed up the exchange by saying, “The President of the United States has accused the world’s most powerful social media network of “killing people” by not doing enough to combat misinformation. The company responded by accusing the president of missing vaccine goals and passing the buck.”
The fact is that Biden’s administration missed their vaccine goal and blamed Facebook. But seriously, why would there be a “Vaccine goal” in the first place if the vaccine is voluntary? What happens if the vaccine goal isn’t met? Would the Biden administration make the vaccine mandatory to gain compliance? All questions that don’t seem to have an answered. America isn’t a goal-based country, and we’re a freedom-based country. No pressure will force anyone to do something they don’t want to do. It would likely make it harder to achieve. As a result, Americans are stubborn. And suitable for us for it! America has been determined from the beginning. When the U.S. was founded, settlers came from a tyrannical ruling king and vowed never to let it happen again and therefore, the Constitution and Declaration of Independence were written.
First Amendment rights violations are not to be taken likely. It’s expected that when the White House gets information about vaccine posts that the reach won’t stop there. Totalitarian principals aren’t welcome in households throughout the country and would be a wrong move for Facebook. Other conservative social media alternatives gained traction when censorship on the Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube platforms tightened during 2020. Many users moved to Gab, MeWe, Locals, and Parler for alternatives that would allow them to voice their opinions and not have the Gestapo show up at their doorstep. The first amendment doesn’t stop at factual data. Anyone is welcome to speak on matters they know nothing about and be wrong. Open debates will usually give way to rational thought, but nobody is changing their opinion if that isn’t allowed.
The vaccine isn’t the be-all and end-all of Covid-19. Positive and negative information will be spread regardless of social media platforms or the White House’s “allowance” to do so. The important thing is that America gets back to the freedom we once had.
