In a recent CNN interview, Virginia Lt. Governor-elect Winsome Sears refused to tell host Dana Bash her vaccination status. Good for her. It was an inappropriate question to ask.
Until like five minutes ago, probing into matters as private as someone’s personal medical history and what procedures they have or haven’t undergone would have been considered by nearly everyone to be either brazenly or cluelessly arrogant and uncouth.
That a national cable news anchor would ask such a question of a guest on their live show indicates how badly coronavirus hysteria has warped our sense of personal boundaries and social etiquette and respect.
In the context of a public policy discussion that considers the city, state, and nationwide vaccine mandates as even on the table in the United States of America is an indication of how badly coronavirus hysteria has corrupted our political culture and institutions.
During the interview, CNN host Dana Bash asked Sears, “During the campaign, you encouraged people to get the jab, but you are not saying whether you are jabbed. Do you want to say it now?”
Sears’ answer was basic American civics, but that is now most undeniably an essential mission for those of us patriots who are willing to take our country back from this Covid Coup: to teach basic American civics in remediation to generations of Americans who have forgotten or never learned:
“As I said, America, if it’s about nothing else, is about liberty. It’s about being able to live your life free from the government telling you what to do.”
It’s that simple. Sears continued, explaining that she is not going to set foot on the slippery slope to the end of all medical privacy in America:
“And so we understand this thing about slippery slopes: The minute that I start telling you about my vaccine status, we’re going to be at the bottom of the mountain trying to figure out how we got there.”
Where does it end, Winsome?
“Because you’re going to want to know what’s in my DNA, you’re going to want to know about this, that, and the other.” Yes, it ends with Gattaca. No, thank you for that, Democrats.
No, thank you as well to the slippery slope that got us to the point we’re already at now, a slippery slope of being willing to lie for political gain, being willing to pretend about severe matters to create drama and get attention, and being ready to repeat inflammatory, destructive, and cruel words to each other when we discuss politics.
