The death of Colin Powell, who was fully vaccinated, has resulted in a furious push by the media to shame those who remain hesitant at a time when the Biden administration is intensifying efforts to coerce the noncompliant into falling in line to get the vaccine.
Powell, a beloved establishment icon passed away on Monday from what his family announced were complications associated with COVID ( see also old age and Cancer). He is the highest-profile figure thus far to have died despite being vaccinated, a fact that has contributed to the skepticism of the millions who continue to hold out, some even choosing to lose their jobs rather than submit to being jabbed.
While it’s getting harder to believe that CNN can get any more severe when it comes to denigrating those who desire to make their own choices regarding their personal health than it already has, the self-proclaimed “most trusted name in news” set a new low when Chief National Correspondent John King came out to announce that he has multiple sclerosis in a shameful attack on the vaccine-hesitant.
With remarks suggesting that a non-vaccinated person could be responsible for infecting his kids, King divulged the news during Tuesday’s edition of “Inside Politics,” the show that he anchors, during a panel discussion.

“I’m gonna share a secret I’ve never spoken before,” King said. “I’m immunocompromised. I have multiple sclerosis, right?”
“So I’m grateful you’re all vaccinated,” King told his guests.
“I’m grateful my employer says all these amazing people who work on the floor, who came in here for the last 18 months when we were doing this, are vaccinated now that we have vaccines. I worry about bringing it home to my 10-year-old son who can’t get a vaccine,” he said.
“I don’t like the government telling me what to do, I don’t like my boss telling me what to do, in this case, it’s important,” King said in defense of the dictatorial vaccine mandates that President Joe Biden is using the “public-private partnership” to enforce.
The administration has resorted to using decidedly un-American methods to force Americans to get jabbed as it has become clearer with each passing day that Biden’s campaign trail promises of being better suited to put an end to COVID than former President Donald J. Trump – a major selling point that closed the deal with millions of voters – was just more of the same hollow rhetoric and hogwash from a lifelong politician.
It’s hard to overstate how much of a problem that the fully vaccinated Powell’s death from COVID is to the official narrative.
The nation’s first black secretary of state has been one of the most celebrated establishment figures since he was a visible military leader during Gulf War I, his entry into politics as a member of the George W. Bush administration, and most importantly, his canonization by the same leftists who once accused him of being a war criminal after he came out in opposition to Trump.
Some took Twitter to point out the obvious.
They’re losing their minds when people note that Colin Powell, like so many who are getting sick with Covid, was fully vaccinated.
That means it’s important.
Keep talking about it.

The media initially reports that Colin Powell died from covid complications.
Then they found out he was fully vaccinated.
Now the narrative is "stop it, he had multiple comorbidities!!"
The media is nothing more than leftist propaganda.

Colin Powell died from COVID despite being fully vaccinated so now the ever changing narrative shifts to the need for boosters.
So how many shots do you think we’ll need by 2022 to kinda sorta be protected?
3? 4? 5?

Joining King in the hysterical assault on the unvaccinated was the New York governor who replaced the scandal-plagued Andrew Cuomo and, in a statement praising Powell, she claimed without proof that someone who was not vaccinated was responsible for giving him the virus.

Resistance is rapidly building to Biden’s employer vaccine mandates and there is obvious fear from Democrats and their media minions that Powell’s death from COVID could be a game-changer.
