How Outrage Over Vaccine Mandates Became a Mainstream G.O.P. Stance
 

WASHINGTON — Like other Republican governors around the country, Tate Reeves of Mississippi reacted angrily to the coronavirus vaccine mandates President Biden imposed on private businesses. Declaring the move “terrifying,” he wrote on Twitter: “This is still America, and we still believe in freedom from tyrants.” 

There is a deep inconsistency in that argument. Mississippi has some of the strictest vaccine mandates in the nation, which have not drawn opposition from most of its elected officials. Not only does it require children to be vaccinated against measles, mumps and seven other diseases to attend school, but it goes a step further than most states by barring parents from claiming “religious, philosophical or conscientious” exemptions. 

Resistance to vaccine mandates was once a fringe position in both parties, more the realm of misinformed celebrities than mainstream political thought. But the fury over Mr. Biden’s mandates shows how a once-extreme stance has moved to the center of the Republican Party. The governors’ opposition reflects the anger and fear about the vaccine among constituents now central to their base, while ignoring longstanding policy and legal precedent in favor of similar vaccination requirements. 

“Republicans care about getting beyond this pandemic every bit as much as Democrats do,” said Dr. Ashish Jha, the dean of the Brown University School of Public Health. But, he added, “politicians are certainly happy to exploit this issue for political gain, which is why I think the Republican governors are up in arms.”

Let's play the WHATABOUTISM game, you're so good at @Mainecat   We all know you'd be embracing this, if this was a move being made by Trump :lol:  Although, we all know Trump wouldn't do that, in the first place.

BTW - I'm proud of you for being such a huge supporter of Trump's vaccine!!

The vaccine has to be the only thing in history where its failures are blamed on the people who didn't use it. 

You do read what you type right?

Absolutely.   People like you think unvaccinated are the cause of people vaccinated getting "breakthrough" infections of COVID.

The problem was it was pushed too much as a sterilizing vaccine when it never was one to begin with.

If they could get 100% of people vaccinated there is no longer a control group to compare against.   If bad things happen to those vaccinated there is no group to compare to.

Back on topic…..Do you think all the vaccine requirements (mandates) should be removed for school entry?

Depends on the vaccine.   Typical vaccine mandates are for vaccines that virtually stop infection altogether.   These are sterilizing vaccines.   These vaccines are not that type.   We don't mandate influenza vaccines to go to school.

FFS, put up a political hack piece expecting anything is just stupid, and that is your MO. 

If you want to ask this question, then start the topic with it, instead of some bias article bullshit.

Emergency vaccines never get mandated because of the criteria.  The dipshit doesn't understand that.

Correct and vaccines cannot get EUA when effective treatments are available and why they rushed thru full authorization on an expedited timetable.
