Meet the Media’s New Boogeyman: “Vaccine Hesitancy”
By Luis Miguel
The media’s pressure campaign is working overtime to ensure Americans get their COVID-19 shots.
Mainstream outlets are now calling for Americans to beware of “vaccine hesitancy,” which they characterize as an unjustified fear of vaccines that arises in response to very real considerations about the safety of the coronavirus vaccines.
The Hill on Wednesday, for example, published a piece entitled “The Memo: Specter of vaccine hesitancy rises after J&J blow.”
“The pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine announced Tuesday is virtually certain to exacerbate vaccine hesitancy, dealing a fresh blow to the nation’s efforts to recover from the pandemic,” writer Niall Stanage laments. Adding, “Vaccine hesitancy is on its way to becoming the main hurdle in the fight against the virus, experts say.”
Over at Axios, a similar article, “The new vaccine threat is fear itself,” argues that there are no legitimate health concerns about the vaccine, that it’s all in the mind of the “vaccine hesitant.”
“The FDA’s decision to pause the use of Johnson & Johnson’s coronavirus vaccine has set off a chain reaction of fear — about the safety of the vaccine, and about whether the FDA is overreacting — that’s causing unnecessary drama just as the vaccine effort is finally picking up speed,” wrote Sam Baker.
These pieces came after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommended a pause on distributing the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine owing to blood clotting in six women.
Both President Joe Biden and Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), were quick to try to assure the public about the supposed safety of the shot.
The establishment is employing the help of the entertainment industry to convince Americans to get vaccinated. Stars including Jennifer Lopez, Demi Lovato, Matthew McConaughey, and Lin-Manuel Miranda will join Biden, Fauci, and former President Obama for an NBC TV special titled Roll Up Your Sleeves, set to air Sunday, April 18.
The mainstream media has largely ignored reports of adverse reactions and deaths related to the vaccine.
Two weeks after receiving the shot, Dr. Gregory Michael, an OB-GYN in Miami Beach, “died after suffering a hemorrhagic stroke apparently resulting from a lack of platelets,” according to the Palm Beach Post.
Michael’s wife believes the vaccine caused the death of her husband. In a heart-wrenching post on Facebook, Heidi Neckelman blamed the vaccine:
The love of my life, my husband Gregory Michael MD an Obstetrician that had his office in Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach Died the day before yesterday due to a strong reaction to the COVID vaccine. He was a very healthy 56 year old, loved by everyone in the community delivered hundreds of healthy babies and worked tireless through the pandemic. He was vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine at MSMC on December 18, 3 days later he saw a strong set of petechiae on his feet and hands which made him seek attention at the emergency room at MSMC.
Social-media platforms are doing their part to encourage everyone to get the shot. Back in December, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said he would work with Biden to “push” the COVID-19 vaccine. The company also declared that it will enforce a stricter level of censorship related to coronavirus and vaccinations, removing content it deems contains false claims about COVID-19 vaccines.
Even as Americans are injured by these vaccines, federal law shields the drug makers from liability. Specifically, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, passed by Congress at the behest of Big Pharma lobbyists, protects vaccine manufacturers from litigation for deaths and injuries caused by their products.
Basically, if a vaccine kills your child or permanently disables you, the vaccine manufacturer cannot be held responsible. Instead, the federal government created a special “court,” in which tax-funded federal lawyers defend the makers of the vaccine, placing taxpayers on the hook for any damages. Billions have already been paid out to injured parties. No other industry enjoys such immunity from liability.
Once blasted as the stuff of “conspiracy theories,” we are now getting closer to an implantable, under-the-skin COVID passport.
Already, the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), a secretive agency established at the height of the Cold War and tasked with protecting soldiers from contagious diseases and biological weapons, has created a “subdermal implant” to detect COVID-19 infection.
The implant not only tests the blood for viruses but also assists in removing the viruses from the blood when used together with a dialysis machine.
The threat COVID vaccine passports pose to American liberties is a very clear and present danger. Citizens heeding the warning should not hesitate to contact their local state legislatures to vote against such potentially dangerous state mandates.
