First, shout out to the Simpsons for the title (think Itchy and Scratchy).
So President Joe “250,000 more Americans dead in the month of December” Biden tweets out a video of Anthony “I’m gonna be the sexiest man alive” Fauci warning about all things Delta variant, which is to say an infomercial for vaccines, and warns (my caps for emphasis):
“Here’s the deal: The Delta variant is MORE CONTAGIOUS, it’s DEADLIER, and it’s SPREADING QUICKLY around the world — LEAVING YOUNG, UNVACCINATED PEOPLE MORE VULNERABLE THAN EVER…Please, get VACCINATED if you haven’t already. Let’s head off this strain before it’s too late.”
So we spent a year and a half cannibalizing our children’s lives in the imperative pursuit of saving Grandma, and NOW we’re focusing on saving the young who are NOW “more vulnerable than EVER”? And the only way to do that is through vaccination? How convenient. First we had to hide under our beds and wear two masks while waiving to our loved ones through locked doors so we could “protect the vulnerable” and now we have to vaccinate everyone to…protect the vulnerable. That’s just lazy writing. At least come up with a new “patriotic” reason for us to dance to your tune.
If you didn’t read my post “THE DELTA VARIANT PANIC PORN” from 6/30/21 please spend five minutes reading it. But if you don’t want to, here are some actual facts, some might even say SCIENCE AND DATA to throw a little shade on the President’s pitch to give Pfizer more money.
Through almost a full year and a half of this pandemic (that was going to kill everyone) in America, the population fatality rates for all those young, unvaccinated people who are more vulnerable than ever are as follows:
Age 0-17: Fatality rate of 0.0005% (five ten-thousandths of one percent)
Age 18-29: Fatality rate of 0.005% (five one-thousandths of one percent)
Age 30-39: Fatality rate of 0.02% (two one-hundredths of one percent)
And those numbers are based on “all deaths involving COVID-19”. If we went just by deaths “involving COVID-19 and pneumonia” those figures would be much lower still. Now I’m not sure what Joe considers “young” but most of us would just be looking at all those poor vulnerable kids age 0-17 as “young”. A risk of 0.0005% is nothing any normal human would ever worry about. Ever. But don't worry, your five year old will be "eligible" to get the vaccine soon enough.
Stop being manipulated. There is no evidence that the “young” are in any more danger from the evil Delta variant than they were or are from any other strain (which is effectively ZERO). Just like there is no evidence that those previously infected need to be vaccinated. And realize there are still another 20 letters in the Greek alphabet so they can drag this out for a long time. Maybe if we're lucky, we'll all be "eligible" to sign up for the vaccine-of-the-month club. Sweet!
Stop listening to the “experts”. They’re either idiots or criminals.
