Rasmussen Poll: 45% of Democratic Voters Favor Confining the Unvaccinated to ‘Designated Facilities’

 

Here’s the TLDR from a Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Report survey. For Democratic voters:

  • 55% support fines against those who choose not to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
  • 59% support house arrest for the unvaccinated.
  • 48% support fines or prison for questioning vaccine efficacy on social media, TV, or the radio or in online or digital publications.
  • 45% support temporarily confining the unvaccinated to “designated facilities” (cough) internment camps (cough).
  • 47% support government tracking of the unvaccinated.
  • 29% support temporarily removing parents’ custody of their children if parents refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

Second look at a national divorce?

    And since we know that being vaxxed won’t stop you from getting or spreading COVID, there’s absolutely no point to this.

    But 45% of Democrats have been absolutely brainwashed. (The whole country, actually, has been brainwashed, but for many of us it didn’t take.)

    We’ve been taught to see our fellow human beings as nothing but plague rats who must be eliminated. That’s on the Democrats. That’s on the bureaucrats. That’s on the media.

    May they all go straight to hell.

    True. I suspected a lot of Democrats were stupid, ignorant, and/or evil, but I had no idea the level of stupidity, ignorance, and evil was so high. 

    Temps me to want to turn the tables and put all Democrats in prison unless and until they can prove they are capable of rational thought.

    I guess I’ll throw a match on the fire.  Does the fact that vaxxed people get COVID equal the assumption that being vaxxed won’t stop you from getting it?

    I have become astounded how influential the pervasive virtual world is. These people have been lulled into sleep and are hypnotized by the narrative.

    The narrative should be considered to exist as an ongoing story that serves the interests of those paying to broadcast the report, which will include themselves and their sponsors.  They are giant multinational media organizations who have their own narrow and broad interests. News divisions are PR activities of media corporations. There are a thousand ways (or four? Rashomon) to tell a story. Which way will the news division of a giant media company report this story, if at all?

    It’s all a result of the of what these people are being told – and the things these people allow themselves to be told.

    Likely my problem.  OK, people who are vaxxed get COVID.  Granted.  Does that mean that vaxxing has no effect on who gets COVID?  In other words, do vaxxed people and unvaxxed people have an equal chance of getting COVID?

    Interesting. I would like to know. Right now everyone I know who currently has COVID is vaxxed. Is there a connection? Some scientists say that the vaccine does a real number on your immune system, and makes you more susceptible. I would like to know how true that is.

    You know six months or a year ago, I went out of my way — rewrote and so forth — to avoid using the word evil.  Now it’s nearly commonplace.  How perspectives have changed.  I’ll say this now, we are charged with loving those who persecute us.

    But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.

    Just a thought for now and for the future.

    There are multiple studies showing being vaccinated has negative effectiveness with Omicron.  Maybe it is ADE.  Maybe it is just a weird correlation.  Humans have agency and correlations pop up all the time.

    The data sets from the US I have seen indicate that vaxed get Covid at a lower rate than the unvaxed.   See the following from Virginia.   But there is a possible wrinkle.   It appears that the vaxed have, on average milder cases.   It’s possible that there are lots of vaxed people who never get tested because they are asymptomatic.   That’s speculative.   But neither have I seen anything to disprove it.

    If the “Vaxxed” can still contract the disease, and can still spread it, what is the source of their self-regard about their ”vaxxed” status?

    Sure, if they get it, the symptoms may for them be less severe. May. But if most people, even before the Jabs existed, were either asymptomatic or else had mild symptoms, this seems to be a small difference, a small improvement from being “vaxxed”. Certainly not worthy of all the craziness and hatred directed at the un”vaxxed”.

    If a “vaxxed” Brahmin who is infected, but doesn’t know it because his symptoms are so mild, encounters me, an un”vaxxed” untouchable, and spreads his disease to me, which apparently is just as likely as anything else, why am I the one he and the rest of his Brahmin pals want to drag off to the lock holes? What the hell did I do?

    The poll missed one obvious question:

    https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/hong-kong-hamsters-cull/2022/01/19/id/1052998/

    It starts with lower life forms, but could work its way up the pyramid.  Once in the internment camps (the third bullet), it wouldn’t be a stretch to make things simpler and cheaper with mass extermination . . .

    Do you remember the pieces coming out a couple months ago as Omicron began hitting the laptop class and the blue state elites? Suddenly we heard that one mustn’t feel bad if they did all the “right” things and still got COVID. Which was a complete turnaround from their previous takes about how only the dirty, filthy red-staters got COVID because they won’t follow the rules!

    I’m not saying these people suddenly found humility to ask forgiveness from the unclean. I’m saying they found a way to forgive themselves.

    I say it doesn’t matter, really. People who are vaxxed get and spread COVID at a significant rate. Maybe not as much as those who are unvaxxed, but still at a significant rate.

    All the measures in the poll, and some folks’ “feelings” against the unvaxxed, are based on the initial claim that those who are vaxxed had a 5% chance of getting infected, and that even those infections wouldn’t raise a viral load sufficient to transmit the disease.

    We now know that’s not the case. So there is literally no justification for mandates, vaccine “passports”, etc.
