CNN has declared war on any and all Republicans who have dissenting views and concerns about the coronavirus vaccine.
As far as far-left outlets like CNN are concerned, it’s contingent on everybody — including Republicans — to automatically accept the mainstream narrative and go get vaccinated, even if being vaccinated poses a risk to them.
In fact, according to CNN host Chris Cuomo, anyone who doesn’t is a “jackass.” So is any Republican who tolerates other Republicans having free will.
Take Texas Rep. Michael Burgess, a pro-vaccine Republican who was hassled Wednesday by Cuomo over his peers raising legitimate concerns about the vaccine.
“You’re OK with this kind of jackassery that has absolutely led to a deficiency, among Republican people, in this country, taking the vaccine? And now they’re getting sick. And now we’re seeing what we see at the hospitals. And now the age is reducing!” the CNN host rudely pressed him during a discussion that evening.
The Texas legislator responded by respectfully highlighting some of his colleagues’ points, including the point that people should be allowed to make up their own minds, and the point that the vaccine isn’t optimal for everybody.
Young people are naturally significantly “less likely to be hospitalized because of COVID-19 or to die from it,” according to Johns Hopkins Medicine.
Conversely, young people have been the ones most “likely” to experience heart inflammation because of the coronavirus vaccine.
“A CDC safety group said there’s a ‘likely association’ between a rare heart inflammatory condition in adolescents and young adults mostly after they’ve received their second Covid-19 vaccine shot, citing the most recent data available,” CNBC reported last month.
But for some reason, facts such as these have no bearing on the minds of far-left pundits like Cuomo who seem to want to view every issue from only one side.
And so, instead of acknowledging Burgess’s points, he began pressuring the Texas legislator to condemn the “jackasses” who’ve been dissenting.
The CNN host wasn’t alone in his pro-vaccine zealotry. Fellow host Erin Burnett also took part earlier that evening.
After playing a clip of Republican politicians and conservative TV hosts/commentators raising concerns about the vaccine, stating that they personally don’t plan to get vaccinated or criticizing the Biden administration’s door-to-door vaccine push, Burnett automatically decreed that all of their concerns were “bullsh*t.”
“All of those people are smart enough to know that what they’re saying is complete bullsh*t and that’s the problem. They should be ashamed. But those lies are having an impact,” she said.
“And sadly, the debate over the vaccine, which should just be basic science so we could save lives, now mirrors 2020 election results in so many cases. Just look at Vermont where Biden won with 66 percent of the vote, 66 percent of the State’s population is now fully vaccinated. In Tennessee 61 percent voted for Trump and the percentage not vaccinated, 62 percent,” she added.
Yet the uptick in coronavirus cases in both states has been mostly parallel.
In the low-population state of Vermont, cases have quadrupled from 4 cases on July 4th to 19 cases on July 14th. In the high-population state of Tennessee, on the other hand, cases have tripled from 262 cases on July 4th to 816 cases on July 14th.
If anything, the uptick in Vermont has been slightly stronger.
Like the media, Democrats both in the Biden administration and in Congress are hellbent on making certain everybody is vaccinated from the coronavirus.
So much so that last week, President Joe Biden himself announced a plan for recruits to go “door to door, literally knocking on doors” to encourage people to get the vaccine.
Meanwhile, so-called “health experts” are now encouraging the president to take a step further and demand that states, employees, and colleges enact vaccine mandates, according to The New York Times.
“[T]op health experts say that [the door to door plan] is simply not enough, and that the president needs to take the potentially unpopular step of encouraging states, employers and colleges and universities to require vaccinations to slow the spread of the coronavirus,” the paper reported.

The administration has thus far stayed clear of a vaccine mandate, though concern has grown that if certain far-left states like California do adopt one, it’ll provide the federal government with the impetus to establish its own national mandate.
For the time being, California legislators are only focused on enacting a vaccine mandate for themselves.
“The California Assembly is exploring whether to require its members and employees to get vaccinated against the coronavirus, after a small outbreak of COVID-19 cases in the state Capitol during the week of June 28,” the San Francisco Chronicle reported Sunday.
