Alabama governor says ‘it’s time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks’ as pandemic worsens
[ Editor’s Note: Could this be a break in the Red Dam? At VT we have not been over hopeful that there would be a straw to break the anti-Covid Vax Camel’s back, but had prepared ourselves for it being a body count battle in the end. The dead don’t lie.
We would track the proven dead that the vaccine killed, and compare to the proven dead that anti-vaxers would contribute from their ‘It’s all a big hoax’ and ‘the vaccine is too dangerous to take’ volunteers. If Las Vegas provided a legal betting pool, I would definitely jump in on it to make some quick money.
But I will go on the record that we will see new grifter lawyer class filing actions charging not enough was done to explain the real risk of dying to the non vaxers, and hence their families should get compensation.
God bless Republican governor Ivey, and I hope more may follow in her shoes. As a country we need some Red States to split off from the others so we can see their vaccinations go up, hospitalizations and deaths go down, and benefit from that economically and socially.
At the end of the day we will see more ‘no vax’ families wiped out financially due to the loss of a bread winner or two.
We should know by year’s end who was right and who was wrong, and shown who is more competent in running the country.
As for Trump, he secretly got himself and family vaccinated and yet had no qualms about sacrificing his anti-vax followers so he can blame their deaths on the Biden administration, after Trump had left him his ‘beautiful’ vaccine… Jim W. Dean ]

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey issued an impassioned plea for residents of her state to get vaccinated against Covid-19, arguing it was “time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks” for the disease’s continued spread.
“I want folks to get vaccinated. That’s the cure. That prevents everything,” Ivey, a Republican, told reporters in Birmingham, Ala., on Thursday.
“Why would we want to mess around with just temporary stuff?” she said. “We don’t need to encourage people to just go halfway with curing this disease. Let’s get it done. And we know what it takes to get it done.”
Ivey went on to describe the shots as “safe” and “effective,” saying: “The data proves that it works. [It] doesn’t cost you anything. It saves lives.”
…But the remarks from the governor grew more pointed when she was pressed on what it would take for greater numbers of Alabamans to get their shots.
“I don’t know. You tell me,” Ivey said. “Folks [are] supposed to have common sense. But it’s time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks. It’s the unvaccinated folks that are letting us down.”
