MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE RECOMMENDS SHOOTING PEOPLE WHO ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO GET VACCINATED.
One positive side effect of the delta variety is that, as instances, hospitalizations, and fatalities rise in the United States,
it seems to be encouraging individuals to be vaccinated by frightening the living daylights out of them.
COVID-19 response coordinator Jeff Zients of the White House informed reporters on Thursday that the US has given out more than 864,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccinations in the previous 24 hours,
including 585,000 initial injections. Is it possible that these individuals are months late to the party?
Yes. Is it preferable to be late than never to get anything done? Yes, in addition.
Then there are the Americans who refuse to get immunized against a fatal illness that has infected 84 percent more children and teenagers this week than last week, among other things.
Why won’t these people—not those who can’t receive the vaccine due to a medical condition, but those who just don’t want to—take a simple action that will safeguard their health and the health of others around them? One of the reasons is a lack of knowledge. Another is self-centeredness. Then there’s the reality that a slew of bad politicians and right-wing pundits are poisoning their minds with all kinds of disinformation, pushing them to refuse to do anything for the greater good, and, in at least one case, proposing they kill anybody advising them to vaccinate.
That politician is, unsurprisingly, Marjorie Taylor Greene, whose very presence is motivating scientists to create a vaccination against madness. The Georgia representative, who has previously compared mask mandates to the Holocaust and vaccine requirements to segregation, suggested that
the Biden administration’s door-to-door vaccination push will result in government officials showing up at people’s homes and demanding personal information for extremely nefarious purposes and that those people should arrested.
“I understand Alabama maybe one of the most unvaccinated states,” Greene told the audience,
eliciting applause for the state’s low immunization rate.
“Well, Joe Biden has shown an interest in speaking with you. He’ll send one of his police state buddies to knock on your door,
take down your name, address, family members’ names, phone numbers, cellphone numbers, and most likely ask for your Social Security number and whether or not you’ve taken the vaccination. What they don’t realize is that in the South, we all cherish our Second Amendment rights,
and we’re not keen on strangers knocking on our door. They may not appreciate the reception they receive.”
Greene then went after Anthony Fauci, saying that COVID-19 is “his baby”
and that he is “getting to see it in the real world, like on a live television program where he has a front-row seat,” like a QAnon thread come to reality. He will be able to see everything that occurs.”
“These allegations are absurd and another conspiracy theory from the left,” Greene’s spokesperson, Nick Dyer, said NBC News when contacted for comment. He didn’t say what allegations he was referring to, and he didn’t recognize that Greene’s comments captured on tape.
This isn’t the first time the Georgia congressman has urged violence after removed from her committee responsibilities. Prior to her election to Congress, she stated on many occasions that Nancy Pelosi was guilty of treason,
adding that treason is “a felony punishable by death.”
She also conducted a Facebook Live video from Pelosi’s office, implying that she would “die” or ” imprisoned” for her “treason.” Rep. Maxine Waters was “just as guilty of treason as Nancy Pelosi,” she said in another video the same day. She also enjoyed Facebook posts advocating for the execution of either John Kerry or Barack Obama. Just something to consider when she claims she never intended for anyone to harm by encouraging a Second Amendment-style “welcome.”
Requiring children to wear masks described as “psychological child abuse” by a representative from North Carolina.
Republicans really care about children, except when it comes to protecting them from a very infectious illness.
Texas seems to be deliberately attempting to make children (and their instructors) ill. It’s true:
The Texas Education Agency reiterated Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive decision that masks cannot enforced in Texas schools,
while also stating that contact tracing not needed if and when COVID-19 positive cases are verified in classrooms. The Texas Education Agency (TEA), which oversees primary and secondary education in the state,
released a document titled Public Health Guidance on Thursday that provided no mitigation strategies to protect teachers and students from COVID-19 infection, instead focusing on what to do if someone tests positive.
According to the TEA, if a student has COVID-19, the school must inform the local health agency
and the Texas Department of State Health Services. The TEA does not compel the school to inform anybody else about the positive case or to look into who that individual may have spoken with.
While the CDC stated that if a school learns that a student or students have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID,
the agency also stated that parents are under no obligation to keep their children at home
and are free to send them to school where they could infect others.
