You usually see Democrat leaders want to force people to do something, while Republicans give people a choice. But not in the People’s Republic of California.
The GOP mayor in Lancaster, California wants to suspend city employees if they refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine.
Rex Parris said that city employees who interact with the public must be vaccinated, according to the Daily Caller. Employees would be suspended without pay if they don’t take the shot.
“We have an absolute right to deal with public health issues and do whatever’s necessary to protect the public health. I do think people have the right to decide for themselves their own personal health. That’s not something the government should be interfering with.
“I think it’s pretty much a no-brainer that if you have contact with the public that requires you to be within 6-feet of them you have to be vaccinated or we’ll help you find another job in the city to do until this crisis is over.”
Parris also said there are some risks with getting vaccinated, but the rewards outweigh it.
While that’s Mr. Parris’s opinion, a lot of statistics don’t prove that premise. And data from a federal government database says otherwise.
The Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) is a national vaccine safety surveillance program, co-sponsored by the FDA. It said that more people died from adverse reactions to the Covid-19 vaccines in 2021 than all other vaccines combined.
And a study earlier this year from Statista.com said that around 1,133 Americans died of Covid-19 per day. This number is from when the first case was reported in the U.S. A June 2021 study from Peterson-KFF shows that Covid is only the 7th leading daily cause of death in America, at 342 per day. Compare this number to heart disease and cancer deaths – which are #1 and #2 – at 2,101 and 1,614 per day.
Why don’t we see nationwide PR campaigns to reduce the number of deaths for heart disease and cancer?
In addition, there are effective remedies for Covid such as Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine with zinc. And a sizable number of people have tested positive for the Covid virus after they took the vaccine. So why are so many government officials pushing the American public so hard to take the jab?
Right now, it’s hard to say. And we hope to have more answers as time goes on. But it looks like the Covid-19 “pandemic” has been and is more about politics and control than public health or safety.
