Burying Biden’s Big Lie About Vaccination

He’s told a lot of them, but this particularly nasty one about a “pandemic of the unvaccinated” has now been thoroughly debunked.

It’s no secret that Joe Biden has an uneasy relationship with the truth — especially when it comes to his claims about vaccination.

For example: He was long ago proven to be a liar when he was asked whether vaccination should be mandatory and he answered: “No, I don’t think it should be mandatory. I wouldn’t demand that it be mandatory.” Likewise, he was long ago proven to be a liar when he told one of CNN’s resident perverts, Don Lemon, during a town hall meeting in July, “You’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.” Same with the lie he told just last month when he challenged our patriotism before sneering, “How about making sure that you’re vaccinated so you do not spread the disease to anybody else?”

Memo to Snake Oil Joe: How about making sure you’ve got your facts before making such bold and sweeping pronouncements?

Those, though, aren’t the vaccination lies we’re looking for. No, the ones we had in mind were those that smeared and vilified the unvaccinated. “It’s a pandemic of the unvaccinated,” Biden lectured, just before clarifying things as only he can: “It’s a vaxation of the unvaccinated.”

Then he washed, and he rinsed, and he repeated. Time and again, he said things like: “This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated. The unvaccinated. Not the vaccinated, the unvaccinated.”

Only problem was, it wasn’t and it isn’t.

We all make mistakes. And we all trip over our words. It’s just that this president does it all the time, and he sounds so sanctimonious when he does so. That’s why this “vaxation of the unvaccinated” needs to be vax-checked. It’s a slogan that, as Reason’s Matt Welch noted recently, “The White House COVID-19 Response Team introduced in mid-July, and which the president was still regurgitating inaccurately as late as December 14.”

Scratch that. He was still regurgitating it just yesterday.

To be fair, scarcely anyone believes anything this guy says anymore, such are the disjointed and ill-informed ramblings we get each time he strays for even a sentence from his tightly scripted remarks. But still. He’s the president of the United States. Is it too much to ask that he at least be honest about matters that are so fundamental?

Could it be that Scranton Joe’s been getting bad advice? You tell us: “When you get vaccinated,” said his main man, Anthony Fauci, in May, “you not only protect your own health, that of the family, but also you contribute to the community health by preventing the spread of the virus throughout the community. And in other words, you become a dead end to the virus.”

When you get vaccinated … you become a dead end to the virus.

Apparently, they didn’t get the memo in Germany, where, as Daniel Horowitz reports, “The respected Robert Koch Institute reported last week that among the 4,206 Germans infected with Omicron for whom their vaccination status was known, 95.58% were fully vaccinated.”

Nor did they get the memo in Denmark, where 89.7% of all Omicron cases were among the fully vaccinated, or in the UK, where only 25% of hospitalizations are among the unvaccinated.

If you’re sensing a pattern here, so are we. And so is Horowitz: “A new preprint study from Bangladesh found that among 404 people re-infected with COVID, having been vaccinated made someone 2.45 times more likely to get re-infected with a mild infection, 16.1 times more likely to get a moderate infection, and 3.9 times more likely to be re-infected severely, relative to someone with prior infection who was not vaccinated.”

So the science out of Bangladesh now joins the science out of Israel in resounding fashion: Natural immunity isn’t just a little better than vaccine immunity; it’s a lot better.

Of course, this isn’t to say that vaccines are bad. Only vaccine mandates are bad. Indeed, for at-risk groups such as the elderly and others with comorbidity factors, vaccines can be life-saving and have proven to lessen the severity of subsequent variant infections. But for the rest of us, for whom the virus is far less likely to be lethal, does the vaccination outweigh the considerable benefits that would otherwise be conferred by natural immunity? It’s a great question, and one that no one in the Biden administration nor anywhere on the Left seems interested in exploring.

As candidate Joe Biden said on October 22, 2020: “Two-hundred-twenty-thousand Americans dead. If you hear nothing else I say tonight, hear this: Anyone who’s responsible for that many deaths should not remain as president of the United States of America.”

Well, Joe, we heard ya. And according to Johns Hopkins University, from the time you took office last January 20 until this past Monday, January 3, we’ve lost 419,200 Americans to COVID-19. By our reckoning, you either owe Donald Trump an apology or the rest of us your resignation. Or both.

Finally, we’ve been focused on vaccination, but what is it with this president’s masking fetish? The images of Biden and the first lady walking their dog on a windswept beach in Delaware over the holidays — images that show Biden masked up, outdoors, with nary another human in sight — are truly jarring. Has anyone ever contracted or spread COVID under such conditions? We’d venture not. And yet there he was, the Leader of the Free World, wearing a face diaper.

We suppose it could’ve been worse. For example, he could’ve been the double-vaxed, triple-boosted American secretary of defense (who still managed to catch COVID), and he could’ve been meeting with dignitaries of a foreign country. And he could’ve been wearing a stupid face shield in addition to a stupid face diaper.

Yep, it could’ve been worse.
