Vice President Kamala Harris warned that in order to end the pandemic one of the goals was to “protect the vaccinated,” forcing many people to wonder what on earth that even means.
Harris tweeted, “By vaccinating the unvaccinated, increasing our testing and masking, and protecting the vaccinated, we can end this pandemic. That’s exactly what we are committed to doing.”
Harris, whose vice presidency has consisted largely of hiding from any real responsibility and pumping the vaccine as much as possible, has displayed a very different tone on the vaccine since the election.
In October 2020, one month before the presidential election, Harris was asked, “If the Trump administration approves the vaccine, before or after the election, should Americans take it and would you take it?”
Harris answered, “If the public health professionals, if Dr. Fauci if the doctors tell us that we should take it, I’ll be the first in line to take it. Absolutely. But if Donald Trump tells us that we should take it, I’m not taking it.”
Former White House Adviser Kellyanne Conway pointed out how Harris “sowed confusion & doubt about the vaccines early on, giggling and dissembling, only to get ‘the Trump vaccine’ as soon as she could. How many visits to unvaccinated communities has she made? (the southern border & Guatemala don’t count).”
Harris’ tweet about “protecting the vaccinated,” meanwhile, left people wondering what do the vaccinated, who should be protected from the virus, need protection from?
RedState editor Joe Cunningham said, “If being vaccinated is not protecting the vaccinated, then what the hell is it even for?”
Former Trump administration staffer Kyle Hooten asked, “Why do you need to protect the vaccinated? Doesn’t the vax do that?”
Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon added, “Opposing mandates is not anti-vax. Telling people they need to get vaccinated and wear a mask to protect the already-vaccinated is anti-vax.”
Fox News’ Katie Pavlich questioned the strange statement by Harris, “’Protecting the vaccinated.’ So, the Biden administration is taking credit for something…the vaccine is supposed to do? Bizarre.”
Former Georgia congressional candidate Barrington Martin II said, “India and Israel proved this is a lie, ma’am. Your rhetoric supported by your bought media companies continues to instill fear within the American public allowing them to make irrational decisions about their health but also creating irrational tensions among the American people.”
Writer Christopher D. White suggested that this divisive statement used by Harris may be intentional, to segregate unvaccinated Americans from vaccinated Americans.
“Again with this claim re ‘protect the vaccinated from the unvaccinated.’ What does this mean? Why hasn’t anyone asked officials why they keep saying this? The implication is that there is something about vaxxed and unvaxxed interactions that effect the vaccine’s potency or is this merely a way to pit the vaccinated folks against the unvaccinated folks, a strategy to provide more pressure on folks to get vaccinated. Either way. By God. It’s important for us to know which is the case.”
