This morning, I was listening to the local radio guy, BloomDaddy. One of his daily features is a debate between opposing sides – often Republican vs Democrat. This morning, he asked the question if Vax mandates are a method to purge or cleanse the ranks of government agencies and large corporations of conservatives.
Both Republican and Democrat debaters acknowledged that those who oppose the vax mandates tend to be more conservative, and religious. Where they differed in opinion was the Republican noted one of the intents of vax mandates was to get large numbers of conservatives to resign, withdraw and remove themselves from public service and life, and to replace them with new hires that were compliant with the vax mandate and who also would tend to be more liberal. The implicit goal was to create a workforce — in government agencies, the military complex, and corporations — that was more consistently liberal in makeup.
The Democrat was spitting about he would not even justify a conspiracy theory like that on a government mandate and it was un-American to tell businesses how they should operate (i.e., not be able to mandate a vax as a condition for employment).
I have been puzzled by the vehement insistence of these mandates, and the demonization of those opposed, and the premise posited above is the most logical explanation. Clearly, it is not about public safety, those who are vaxxed should not have any concern about those unvaxxed (if the vaxxes worked, right?). And those who opt to not get vaxxed are not worried about their statistical risk of death of less than 99.95 percent if they feel healthy and young.
Occam’s razor seems perfectly suited to explain the strategy behind the Liberal Socialists mandating this vax, and demonizing those conservatives who resist.
The conundrum is that conservatives are opting to be purged, because they are resisting the vax, thereby fulfilling the goal of the liberals of purging them.
Hmmm… Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.Published in
