In an article titled, “It’s time to start shunning the ‘vaccine hesitant.’ They’re blocking COVID herd immunity,” published on May 1st, 2021, in USA Today, Michael J. Stern started by mocking rock star, Ted Nugent who contracted COVID-19 last week, regarding him as an anti-vaxxer due to Nugent’s outspoken views against the COVID-19 vaccines. Stern claims, “the flickering light at the end of the tunnel was herd immunity — the antibody force-shield that comes when enough people have survived the illness or have been vaccinated against it.” Obviously, Stern believes what Anthony Fauci said in December that, “if 75% to 85% of the population got vaccinated, we could reach herd immunity by June. And with herd immunity, we’d return to a measure of “‘normalcy,’ meaning indoor dining, movie theaters and hugs.” Stern blames Americans who refuse to be vaccinated, which he claims is a quarter of the population, for not achieving herd immunity and thus ruining all of the country. Based on his logic, the vaccine hesitant should be shunned!

Before he reaches his conclusion, shouldn’t he first answer at least three of the most basic questions among tens of thousands?

  1. Where did Covid-19 come from?
  2. Is it a bioweapon made by Wuhan P4 Bio Lab as Dr. Li-Meng Yan wrote in her reports?
  3. Without knowing the origin of it, how can any vaccine be proved to be effective?

Stern’s article is full of cheap shots, blame, speculation, ignorance, and efforts to force the vaccine on all Americans.  While Ted Nugent is a controversial figure, Stern’s article shows disdain for Nugent, certainly pertaining to his reputation for being an outspoken conservative, gun rights advocate, and anti-communist.  Stern, without any evidence, blames the fear of the vaccine, on so-called “endless efforts by Trump to downplay the danger of the virus,” rather than the legitimate concerns about the safety and effectiveness of the quickly rushed vaccines that are lacking proof for enhancing immunity and preventing transmission. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), up until April 20th, more than 7,000 people who were fully vaccinated against the CCP virus still got the virus. Therefore, the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines is highly doubted.

Stern would strip us of our right to privacy for our medical decisions over this vaccine, where no good or consistent answers have been provided.  Millions are suspicious of the government, which in many states, shut down many businesses, churches, and transformed election laws in the name of pandemic control. While, at the same time, allowing large crowds to protest and riot in the streets.  Despite more than 50,000 severe side effects reported and more than 2,000 people dying of vaccination in the States alone, the media is in a full court press to convince Americans to be vaccinated. Recent reports show that over a million doses a day are being administered, seemingly as fast as they can offer the vaccines. Stern must focus his contempt for those that do not trust anything about the handling of this virus, much less the vaccine. Perhaps Stern would be better off in CCP China or North Korea where he can order all his subjects to take the vaccine by force rather than in the United States. Therefore, in conclusion, barking up the wrong tree is no solution to the pandemic!
