The family of a 66-year-old woman who died earlier this month as a result of complications from COVID-19 is blaming those who are unvaccinated for her death, BizPacReview reports, as President Joe Biden continues castigating those who haven’t yet rolled up their sleeves to get inoculated.
According to BizPacReview, an obituary said Candace Cay Ayers, of Illinois, had died Sept. 3.
“She was preceded in death by more than 4,531,799 others infected with covid-19,” it adds. “She was vaccinated but was infected by others who chose not to be. The cost was her life.”
Biden turns up the pressure
The rhetoric used in the obituary is strikingly similar to recent remarks from President Biden himself. As the Associated Press notes, the White House has been turning up the pressure in recent weeks on Americans who remain hesitant about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines currently available to combat COVID-19.
“We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin,” Biden said at a recent White House appearance, according to the AP. “And your refusal has cost all of us.”
The president went on to say those who haven’t gotten the shot “can cause a lot of damage, and they are.”
Unfortunately for Biden, the science paints a different picture. The reality is that the vaccine isn’t stopping people from catching the coronavirus, nor is it stopping the spread.
Despite this, Biden’s administration and its cronies in the mainstream media are continuing their harsh rhetoric — and are actively encouraging division among Americans on the topic of COVID-19.
Par for the course
Indeed, despite claiming to be the party of science and reason, Democrats have been anything but scientific about their approach to the pandemic — and even left-leaning outlets are starting to admit it.
“The spring of 2021 is different from the spring of 2020,” writes Emma Green in a May piece for The Atlantic. “Scientists know a lot more about how COVID-19 spreads — and how it doesn’t. Public-health advice is shifting. But some progressives have not updated their behavior based on the new information. And in their eagerness to protect themselves and others, they may be underestimating other costs.”
Being extra careful about COVID-19 is (mostly) harmless when it’s limited to wiping down your groceries with Lysol wipes and wearing a mask in places where you’re unlikely to spread the coronavirus, such as on a hiking trail. But vigilance can have unintended consequences when it imposes on other people’s lives.
Green lists as examples “banning access to playgrounds, closing beaches, and refusing to reopen schools for in-person learning.” But for many liberals, it’s all just par for the course.
